My boyfriend and I visited Eastern Standard on a recent Saturday night. It was an immensely pleasant experience.
I'm a beer person, so i was very impressed with their collection, which included choices like a Rasberry lambic and Delerium Tremens. The service was very friendly and easy, neither pushy nor unavailable. The manager even stopped by our table for more than a cursory check-in and I noticed he spoke with all the other guests as well. The food, itself was fantastic! We had the Beef Wellington and the Steak Frites, both were amazing. Somehow, we managed to save enough room for dessert - a chocolate bread pudding that has to be just about the best I've ever had. To cap it off, we received a complimentary dessert wine!
The atmosphere was excellent, it felt large and open but didn't sound noisy. The wood and glass worked well together to make a warm and beautiful look. The earlier crowd was mainly tourists and hotel guests, while locals arrived later in the evening.
Overall, a sure bet for a good night.
