I like their food and enjoy the ambience. It is a bit overpriced but what isn't in NYC? It's pleasant right before the show to sit and chill a bit.

Enjoyed a pre-show dinner here. Server was excellent and helped with kid friendly options/suggestions. The Mac and cheese was a hit ( it's actually on the menu) as was their watermelon martini. Good dessert choices too.

Great location so we dropped in to enjoy their highly rated mac and cheese. Ordered chef's pork chop special too which was excellent. Staff was warm, welcoming and treated us like royalty. Chef responded to our praise with dessert. We'll be back and recommend to others

In what was once Hell's Kitchen, a cool little place with consistently good food, always crafted with slight twists on classic dishes. The people watching is very entertaining while enjoying your tasty dishes, and some good wine selections. Somewhat loud inside, sit in the small sidewalk area if you can for a little easier conversation (in spite of periodic blaring... More

Restaurant was extremely crowded and noisy. Service was acceptable, food was average, pricing was fair. Didn't earn a repeat visit

We had a group of six, so we decided to go to the Eatery since the menu was diverse and would have something for everyone. The place itself is cute! Modern and hip decor. Despite having reservations, and arriving on time, they made us wait in the bar for our table. The place was rather empty too when we arrived,... More

Loved the entire ambiance of the place. We ate some cheese and sliced meets with wine before dinner--the one drink and plate of items was over $100. Then we had dinner, which was well over $200 with no dessert or appetizers. I loved the look of the place, but not the prices.

nice lively place for an after work cocktail...the drinks are thoughtfully prepared and the bartenders are usually friendly. The hosts very welcoming...and eager to accommodate...perfect for a nite out with a small group or with a close friend.

The Eatery is a cool little restaurant...perfect for weekday lunches, and it has the BEST jerk chicken (w/mango salsa) wrap + terrific sweet potato fries. They also serve the most unique (very light) chips that are very tasty, but hard to describe. Service is usually top-notch, and they have lots of other tasty stuff too (but I'm hooked on the... More
