Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Delicious macaroni available as gluten free - lovely for a quick lunch in the East Village. I had the BBQ chicken with ranch sauce, rather spicy but tasty.

Our second time here and the mac and cheese is as perfect as we remember. Definitely the best mac and cheese you will ever eat!

“A must try!!!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

It doesn't look the best from the outside but after reading the reviews before we went, we knew we were going to eat here.. As we walked upto it we were unsure whether to go in or not... But trust me, if you want an amazing macaroni go in and try the sample platter. You won't be disappointed.

“Food 5 star, service 1 star”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We love being able to get gluten-free mac and cheese! The food here is consistently satisfying and we eat here often. It's nice that there are different sizes of mac and cheese available, and the topping are tasty. However the service, atmosphere and bathroom all need major improvement. WHY do they not have ice for the soft drinks? Warm soda - UGH. There are only a few tables in the place, so it is really frustrating when you want to sit down and the only open tables are dirty and the staff is socializing instead of working. Do they think we can't hear them? The place is tiny and when the staff is talking about their personal lives and the tables need busing, customers are not happy. Cleaning the restroom is another task they need to do a lot more often.

Also, plastic forks for bubbling hot food? Really, really bad idea.

“Delicious Mac&Cheese-Uncomfortable atmosphere”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

I had really good expectations for this restaurant. As a macaroni lover, I was so sure that the place would satisfy my expectations but it was a disappointment. I can not say anything bad about the mac&cheese. It was really tasty and mongo size had enough to feed 3 people but the atmosphere was so uncomforting.

First of all, the employees were the most unfriendly ones I have ever seen. They were not attentive and not paying attention to our questions about the content of the menu. The setting inside was not so good. More than a nice restaurant, it was like a fast-food chain restaurant where you don't want to stay a minute after you finish your food.

We had a wine for 7 dollar a glass and it was served with a plastic cup! I did not enjoy the wine due to the plastic taste! Also, the forks were plastic and the real forks were given upon our request.

Although the food is good, S'mac needs so improvements in terms of service.
