My friend and I visited Schiller's Liquor Bar on a Tuesday night and, much to our surprise, this Lower East Side establishment was hoppin'. Although the fabulous bar played a significant role in packing this place, there were other factors that we found contributed to our pleasurable experience: the food was comfort-food delicious; the service was attentive without being either intrusive or rushed; and the ambiance and decor reminded us both of the bistros in Paris--an interesting combination that simply has been done very well. Both of us agreed that making the trip to this great spot off the beaten path (ours anyway) was well worth it--and, as such, I recommend visiting Schiller's wholeheartedly to others.

Very lively comfort food restaurant with hipster scene that is fun to watch even for those far too old to participate. The food is good but mostly basic although some of the appetizers are clever - both the shrimp and octopus appetizers were quite good. Good place to get a cheeseburger or roast chicken while seeing how the younger half lives. Reservation highly desirable and get busier as gets later. One downside is that very loud so can be hard to have a conversation.

Simple tasty food. Good service. Great looking restaurant-decor is fab. Went for lunch on Sat afternoon with my Mum, sister & husband and the place was buzzing! We all ordered burgers - veggie, cheese & hamburger - there were no complaints from any of us. Apple crumble for dessert was also delicious. Recommend if you're looking for simple yet tasty food in LES. Great value too.

Schillers is my go to place any time I want to have a relaxed tasty meal at a cool restaurant and great cocktails.

The menu is simple brasserie style food, prepared well. No surprises here. I especially love the fact that Schillers serves nice wine by the carafe and you can select the price range. The cocktails are amazing and the bar tenders are some of the friendliest and most capable I've ever met.

Be prepared to wait around for a table at the bar and have a FULL restaurant, but it's well worth it.

On a miserable snowy wet day in New York... this was the perfect place to take refuge for a while. Having past experience of Pastis and Balthazar this is obviously why the place is so good! I had the Omelette with Herbs.. yum! really good value at $11.50 The decor was old style tiles making it kitchen like with long wooden tables.. brilliant for chatting with friends and generally having a great time... Thanks for saving our day..
