I can't comment on the food in general as I only ate salads here but those were delicious - good range, fresh and very tasty. The staff are friendly and quick and it has an authentic New York - international/Jewish flavour to it.

Saw E.A.T. on our way up Madison Avenue when we walked to the Metropolitan Museum. We did not check the prices, but walked into the restaurant through the takeout deli area, and decided we'd eat there on our way back. I had a cheese omelet with a salad. The salad was a bunch of lettuce, just out of a bag from the grocery store, and a lot of it should have been thrown out. It was wilted. Cost was $20. The best part of the meal was the basket of bread on the table when we sat down. It was awesome. My husband had the bowl of barely soup for $12 and said it was no big deal. When we walked by in the morning, a lady was standing on the steps smoking, and it turns out she worked in the restaurant...maybe the manager. She was working inside when we were there, and quite frankly, the cigarette smell on her clothes was quite strong. Was surprised she didn't know that, and would refrain from smoking. After we left, we looked at a lot of other restaurants on the way back, and realized E.A.T. was about the most expensive. We stopped for coffee at a small corner restaurant that was jam packed, and everything was home made there. Next time we'll bypass E.A.T. We have eaten at 3 Guys on Madison before, and it was better priced, and we do like it there.

Our friend recommended this place. There were lots of choices for our large group to choose from. It was very good, but maybe not worth the prices. Delicious nonetheless. Very good Matzo Ball Soup.

This UES Eli Zabar restaurant is consistently reliable in offering inventive dishes made with the freshest ingredients, some grown by Mr. Zabar. Bar menu less expensive than regular menu and can be ordered in the dining room.
