“funky, fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

We chose Stage Restaurant from reviews at other sites and location - next to Orpheum theater where we were taking our two ten-year olds. We didn't want a fancy expensive restaurant but one that ten-year olds can find something they like and are comfortable. We almost didn't go in because it looks a bit "tired" from the outside, glad we went in. It has one long bar-stool counter and one waitress. It has everything from Polish everyday foods to breakfast all day. One of the ten-year olds chose the special for the day - spaghetti and meatballs for $9.95. He got four very large meatballs, with a hearty red gravy over the pasta, and two slices of bread. He ate all four meatballs. I had a cup of the best lima bean soup I ever had - not the fake thick diner soup, but a tasty hearty soup. It was fun being with the locals, and watching the waitress cover the entire bar. Food came out as it was ready. I recommend it for decent food at a very decent price. If the eater wants a table cloth and pretentious wait staff, this is not their place.

“A MUST Visit if you are in the area and VERY hungry. Or not”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2010

An amazing, authentic experience and a real surprising find for us. Wandering NY and (as usual) hungry for breakfast we stumbled upon this small (even cramped - in a nice way) diner-style eatery. The food was great, not expensive, fresh, served by friendly people. When we got there there was a queue of cop cars outside and a steady stream of officers coming in for take-out breakfast while we ate. Read other excellent reviews. http://www.menupages.com/restaurants/stage-restaurant/?restaurantid=2567&page=1#reviews

A place you have to go when your around the east village! You get tons of food for the money...best value in the city. Everything is hand made while you watch. Friendly staff willing to help and even take custom orders.
Only negative is that it is a small setup with one row of about 15 stools against the counter and not much room to walk behind them.
