Fast attentive service. Small menu but delicious food. Not a lot of fish choices. Yummy oysters, shrimp, and Caesers salad.

Visited with my husband. Service was fantastic - attentive, knowledgeable and friendly without being intrusive. Lobster chowder was amazing, lobster burger and lobster roll both delicious. Location is pretty low-key and the restaurant is unremarkable from the outside but I can't recommend highly enough.

Small restaurant with nice deco , The service is fast and good. Menu is not too big but with enough choice. Prices are correct for NY. The lobster roll is delicious and the whole grilled lobster as well. Go there !

Ed's is simple and just plain good. There is more thank just lobster (but the lobster is so good). We like to sit at the bar for our meal but tables are available. We've never made a bad choice.

Ive been 4 times to this place, awesome service, very nice place for a quick bite, the Lobster buns are a must but I would recommend on going at night service or lunch service, try to avoid afternoon... I will come back next time visiting...More

Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of
the premiere shopping destinations in the world.
Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands
to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this
is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway
is teeming with big-name stores and people during the
day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other
main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter
