I have been to eatery plenty of times and love it everytime I go. The brunch is great, service is friendly and fast and it looks like there is always a wait for brunch but I have always gotten seated in a quick amount of time even with large parties! I would totally recommend it if you have never been there for brunch!!

It's located in Hell's Kitchen, but the feel of The Eatery is more like that of a downtown restaurant.. The decor is minimal and tasteful. The menu has offerings that lean toward the "nouvelle" but it also has entrees like burgers and macaroni and cheese! My favorite selection is the Asian chicken salad - a delicious combination of fresh and tangy flavors - and the crispy noodles make it something special. It's all about the crunch!

We went to brunch here and it was very fun. The neighborhood isn't the prettiest, but the exterior and interior of Eatery were very respectable.

The prices were very reasonable, I believe ranging from 8 to 12 dollars.

The best part of the meal was the bread at the beginning. It was decidedly not your standard dinner roll. Apparently every day they bake a different "bread" to serve while you order. Ours was some kind of a banana bread with chocolate chips, it was delicious.

I was part of a party of 6 ladies brunching on a Saturday afternoon at the Eatery. The bartender & waiter were a real treat and gave great drink/entree suggestions. Unfortunately, one of the meals was incorrect. By the time the mistake was rectified all diners were nearly done with our meals. When the bill did arrive and I saw that the item had not been comped I politely requested that it be removed. Our waiter sent over the host/manager since it was not within his authority to adjust our bill. When I (very politely) requested that the item be removed (and the mgr knew why since he was the one who took my friends plate back to the kitchen to be corrected) his response was, ""She ate it, right?"" I said, ""Well, yes, but it didn't arrive until most of us were already done with our meals."" His disingenuous response was, ""She ate it. Have a nice day."" He then turned on his heel and walked away. I was taken aback to say the least. The food was OK, but to treat customers with such disregard, when they're spending money at an establishment in a city where there are thousands of restaurants to choose from is really appalling. I would not return under the current management and I would not suggest this restaurant to anyone. The lack of tact this man has leads me to believe he should not be the first person people see when they arrive or the last person they see before they exit.

Now I usually feel funny saying out loud that I'm a foodie since it doesn't go with my swaaaag, but Eatery always fixes that for me. It's impossible for them to mess seafood up: calamari, salmon, mussels, scallops....IMPOSSIBLE TO MESS UP! Steaks ain't bad neither. Good drinks. I'd give 5 stars but the service can be come and go depending on who you get. One of my reliable go-to's in the city though.

We went there on Saturday to celebrate my wife's birthday. When I made the reservation they said it was ok for a stroller but they never mentioned they would be seating us at the far-end corner of the restaurant next to the kitchen past restrooms. The place looked isolated from the rest of the crowd and they had many tables available with plenty of space next to them. They just insisted we sat there. \r
Very rude management with a very little flexibility when it comes to couples with babies!\r
We have been going out since our baby was 6-month old and we were never been treated like this before!

Eatery is one of these places where you can't go wrong when you can't decide where to go. Food and drinks are great. Last time I went, they had a roasted duck mac'n cheese on special that was to die for. I suggested to them that they should have it on the regular menu. The staff is always nice and ready to help. This place is definitely a good pick for pre or post theater. You won't be disappointed

Our latest experience at Eatery was the best yet. We get to NYC every month, and have experienced numerous restaurants in the Theater District, but Eatery is by far our favorite.\r
\r
Last weekend when we visited, the 10-minute wait to be seated was well worth it, as usual. This is just typical of a restaurant that is patronized by so many.\r
\r
Our drinks were great - the staff is always very attentive.\r
\r
My wife had Pan Seared Sea Scallops with Asparagus Risotto & Roasted Pepper Vinaigrette. Scallops are her favorite and she has enjoyed them in all the coastal cities we have visited, but these are the best she's had.\r
\r
\r
I enjoyed the BBQ St. Louis Baby Back Ribs - seasoned just right, and fall off the bone tender.\r
\r
The portions are filling, and as such we didn't enjoy any dessert this evening.\r
\r
Overall, Eatery is our first choice when in NYC - hands down. You won't be disapointed.\r

I had family in from out of town and thought Eatery would be a good option for some picky eaters. Everyone in our party of 6 was completely pleased!! Amazing for my family.

We started with the calamari and hummus -- both were absolutely delicious. I had the Asian chicken salad and while it was huge, I ate almost every bite. Our waitress was really lovely and gave great menu suggestions to everyone. We shared three desserts...all good, the cheesecake was our favorite.

Will be back soon for sure!

I dined at Eatery last night and could not have had a nicer experience. The other times I had been there it was very busy, and while the service and food were equally as stellar, I prefer the quiet Monday evening with an old friend.\r
Back to the restaurant, I had the tempura calamari (which I cannot pass the opportunity everytime) and Pastrami-style Salmon.....amazing, who knew? I can never seem to save room for dessert....\r
The service was also fantastic as always and I thought it was about that time to give back to Eatery, their ""just desserts"" in the form of a good review.

Eatery was one of my go-to brunch places, because of the ambiance, food, and location. My friends and I are frequent brunch goers, so we like to try new places. I've been to some newer establishments recently that really wow'ed us, but I still love the food here- and we always have a great time at Eatery, so I'd def. recommend going at least once! Only downside is that there is sometimes a long wait time to be seated.

I live in this neighborhood and was so excited to try this place. I have eaten at most of the places located in this area and really have never been disappointed. I love food and will try anything! Well I was excited and love the visual of this place to. I was greeted and sat immediately, then greeted by an awesome waiter. I had ordered the special trout with wasabi potato's, calamari and my friend had a chicken dish and we both had Iced tea. The trout literally tasted like dirt and the potato's were way to hot (and I love hot) the calamari was so greasy and the chicken wasn't seasoned and dry, even the iced tea had an acidic flavor. The bill was around a $100 for this food witch we barely touched and our waiter was so fab I could not leave him a great tip (not his fault). We left and went across the street to Mee Noodle and had a great meal for a lot less. Every time I go by the Eatery I always say there's the worst food in NYC. lol

I went for dinner there with a friend sometime in Dec. It was a cold, wet night, and when we walked in the place was busy but cozy. We had a reservation so we got seated promptly. Our waiter was very friendly & had great suggestions; he was a sweetheart & very attentive. Had fries & the tuna tartare (interesting & pretty tasty) for appetizers & they give this complimentary crispy puffed fried thing that tastes exactly like a type of indian papad--yum! I got the mac & jack as an entree which was great, my friend had the meatloaf which was good (and the mashed potatoes that came with were excellent!). Definitely enjoyed the comfort food, and the bill was less than I expected. Had no room for drinks or dessert but I would go back to try the other interesting items on the menu. In fact i just went there today for brunch with friends, it was very crowded but apparently we were the right size group and got seated right away. I had the stuffed french toast, which was delicious, and all my friends' dishes were as well. We left very full & happy! My waistline can't take going there too often but i def recommed the place!

I Understand if you had a very bad experience at Eatery, hey they cant always please everyone.
im a regular and Staff/food/drinks are always amazing.
I do have to say, were is city search?how can you allow someone to actually right a servers name?
Dont you think that the person in question could actually lose here job because of the review? You should have rules to protect the servers info.
Remember there are always those people that are just bitter and there is nothing that you ca do in order to please then! hey i know i worked as a server in my past and i think that we all know that there are some people that are better just staying home.
point of view, the review makes no sense and the person responsible for the review is one bitter person. to go to the point of stating the servers name is uncalled for!
Next time just think twice before you act.
Karma is a bitch and who knows?

My friend and I went to Eatery for dinner the other night and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The service and staff were very accommodating and frequently checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed for a good dining experience. I loved the Mac & Jack entree, and my friend really enjoyed the Asian Chicken Salad dish. Both of us could not say enough good things about the Cran-Apple martinis. I will return to Eatery and bring more friends with me next time!

We went to Eatery while on a weekend getaway, after reading the reviews on citysearch & noticing they had been ranked on Zagat's list. However, once we arrived the place wasx crowded, which in essence would lead you to believe the food was something to talk about. However, we were very dissatisfied once seated to not only wait 20 mins or more just to place our order, but also getting a waitress who lacked the ability to be personable at all costs (Abby). Once placing our drink and meal orders. The drinks were horrible, couldn't get a simple bloody mary right and the sangria was so...watered down it was like a light juice. Once our food arrived 30 mins. later we were not impressed at all. $80 or so later, we came to the conclusion this is a place that is all hype and nothing to back it up. A waste of time & patience. Go to the local restauranti instead- better service, drinks & food!!! NEVER AGAIN !!!

Loved the food, but not the service/reservation system!

We ordered poached eggs and French Toast, and the portions were huge! Prices were reasonable too, especially for a highly-rated, hip New York restaurant.

Made a reservation online wherein I was told 11:30 wasn't available but 11:00 was so we rushed to get there. Funnily, it was half-empty when we got there at 11:15. Not sure what to make of that.

My gripe with the service was the server's knowledge. I had specifically asked for no bananas in my French Toast, and the server said sure. Minutes later, my first bite of chocolate-stuffed French Toast, and there it was - banana! To make it worse, the server now said it was part of the pureed mixture inside so could not be removed. I doubt they came up the recipe since I had placed the order, so shouldn't the server have known that?

I really liked the food. Everything we ordered was good, from the barbeque flatbread appetizer to Mac & Jac. Food is VERY filling and has lots of cheese, so you might want to order a vegetable side, like sauteed spinach, to balance it out.

Every time I went there with my children, we were stuffed into a back corner near the kitchen. My 2 daughters, aged 12 & 9, have been eating in fine restaurants their whole lives, in the U.S. & Europe & know how to behave. They don't need children's menus. So why are we automatically stuffed into a back corner 'away' from everybody??? I am sick of the staff at Eatery assuming my children are ill behaved. It's really too bad, because the girls request going there as they love the food, but I will not take them as I have been stuffed into that corner enough. Eatery had several chances. \r

But if you do go, please do yourself a favor & order the blueberry lemonade.

My friends and I had a great dinner here. We are in our mid twenties and fit right in to the rest of the crowd. The menu is very unique and there is a wide variety of things to choose from (I was with two very picky eaters who were able to find something they'd eat). The ambiance is really cool and everything is reasonably priced. This was my second time and I'll definitely be back.

I had walked by ?E? at least 20 times before my niece and I finally decided to walk in. We were greeted by a friendly host and seated immediately. Within minutes, we were offered drinks, and the great service did not stop there. The food was excellent and reasonably priced (especially for a trendy, hip, NYC restaurant) and the menu, diverse. The wait staff knows the menu inside and out, and they were able to answer all my questions about their unique sauces. Never was my water glass empty, or was there an empty dish cluttering the table. Since my first visit, I have gone back several times. Sunday brunch is definitely my favorite (I would recommend that you get there early - word has definitely spread), but I also enjoy sitting at the cozy bar just for a cocktail.

Really nice place to impress a date. Very classy . My friend and I had a lunch date. We were well taken care of by our server and the food was artistic and exquisite.

I think this place has great food at great prices. The service was good, paying attention without hovering. service was quick and I would highly recomend the beef medallions. The atmosphere is trendy and modern without being intimidating. Great place worth a visit!

Pros: food, service, price

Cons: location?, space

Excellant food. I had the tuna special & my friend had a pasta dish with shrimp. Inside looked a bit trendy for me, but sitting outiside and people watching while dining was nice & quiet. The server was also very knowledgable & friendly.

I just had my husband's 40th birthday party with 16 people at the Eatery, and I can't say enough nice things about the food and the staff. They made everything so easy. Planning and booking couldn't have been simpler and the staff (especially Marc the manager) made sure we felt welcome and taken care of the moment we walked in. It's one of the rare places in Manhattan that can serve you the best simple comfort food and mix a mean martini.

Sunday was busy, but it still doesn't mean that when mistakes are made they shouldn't be corrected. In a party of 2, food coming out 15 minutes apart for each patron is absurd, especially when the staff reaction is ""I'm sorry"" while your friend's food gets stale and cold waiting for yours to be served! No free drink. No discounted meal. No coupon for next time to entice us to return. Just mediocre food with an expensive price tag that was served at two different times! \r
Definitely not worth the money! If you're really hungry and in the area with a bunch of money burning a whole in your pocket, go ahead, but I definitely don't recommend it as 1 of the top brunch places in the city, like someone supposedly did.

I chose this restaurant after reading about its fantastic brunch, which is exactly what I wanted for my visitng family. Another great bonus is the divers brunch menu- anything from simple eggs and bacon, to a southwestern pulled pork tostada. The food was good, it was good atmosphere for conversation, and the service was some of the best I've had in New York (I'm a southerner, so my expectations are high!) We weren't rushed and the waitress was helpful in deciding among the many options.

We recently ate here before going to a play (Gypsy at the St James) and the service was great, the restaurant wasn't too crowded (but it was full) and our food was great. We also had really good specialty Mojitos. I was really afraid we'd get stuck in the pre-show rush but it wasn't bad at all. We were even late for our reservation and it wasn't a problem... the host and hostess were both very nice.\r

I rarely, if ever, write restaurant reviews. But I have to say that Eatery NYC was without a doubt my worst restaurant experience in the past 2 years. We made a reservation, waited a few minutes, and were seated in a nice location. That was the highlight of the evening. The waiter took forever to acknowledge us, tried to push sparkling water on us, seemed annoyed that I asked for good ol' NYC tap water and then took a very long time to bring the water. 15-20 minutes later he graced us with his presence and allowed us to order. The appetizer never came. I asked him to check on it and he seemed annoyed again. While he was checking in the kitchen, the server brought our entrees. So, no calamari for us! The manager came over and apologized and said the kitchen ""is having trouble tonight."" OK everyone has a bad day, I understand that. But typically in a situation like that, the manager or waiter offers to comp a dessert or after-dinner drink...not so at Eatery NYC. Yes, the manager made a brief apology but that was the only acknowledgement of poor service throughout the night, not to mention that the tilapia I ordered was bland. I could have done better at a diner. I usually will give restaurants a second chance but not so here - the kitchen couldn't handle a tame Monday night crowd, the waiter was aloof and didn't seem to care, the bartender took forever to prepare a simple beer, and the manager realizes his staff is not performing yet does nothing to compense his patrons. I'm annoyed at myself that I still, after all this, left a 10% tip for the waiter. Avoid this restaurant.

I work as a hairstylist in Beverly Hills and recently had work in NYC as a guest speaker for the beauty shows. I know nothing about NY, but I know that when Citysearch users believe in something, they are true and faithful about it. It's also how many of my clients find me. So I turned to Citysearch, looked up top restaurants or something like that, and watched the video on Eatery. The video hardly does it justice. The waiters are friendly, the atmosphers is cozy/comfy yet mod, and there's a nice selection of foods to choose from. The Chicken sandwich is to die for. I didn't feel rushed, the service was outstanding, and the hellos and good-byes fromt he host were as genuine as could be. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back. \r

We went to Eatery late on a Saturday night which is traditionally a time when food and service slip in most restaurants. Eatery certainly bucked this trend. The menu is imaginitive but not pretentious and the prices are more than reasonable. I've never paid less for such a tasty mojito. My date's pork entree was a bit dry, but my short rib was incredible. It was paired perfectly with the accompanying greens and mashed. Dessert was decadent and worth sharing. The service was very freindly but still professional. We were in good hands. I am already looking forward to going back.

I planned a birthday party for 17 people at the Eatery following a show on Broadway and was so happy with how everything turned out. The service was very attentive, and there was plenty of delicious and unique food to go around. Our server was always close by to see if we needed anything, and we never felt rushed. We also had one person in the group in a wheelchair and they were very accommodating to that as well. The prixe fix option made it easy on the group too -- we got a selection of appetizers, everyone could choose their own main dish, and really impressive (and delicious) dessert platters. Because I was planning the dinner for a bunch of out-of-towners, I wanted cuisine that was contemporary and interesting, but not too ?out-there? ? Eatery fit the bill perfectly. Everyone loved it and had a great time! If I lived in New York I would go back on a weekly basis!

I just visited Eatery for lunch. Since I was alone I chose to sit at the bar. The bartenders are always nice and welcoming and I never feel alone. I ate the Southwestern Chicken Panini. Oh so good! I just love the combination of flavors. It has this delicious cilantro pesto on the chicken, pleasingly tart slices of tomatillos & melted pepper jack that is not spicy at all. The fries were hot, crisp and perfectly salted. I love when the bartender is right there when I finish my drink to ask if I want more because I drink at least 4 glasses of some beverage when I eat. Eatery just has it right. I live in Astoria, but when I'm in midtown that's my place to eat. Oh and if your looking for an awesome brunch spot that does it right you have to go to Eatery. They are very busy during brunch around noon so try to go earlier but if you can't be patient -good things do come to those who wait!

My friends always tell me what a picky eater i am. i'd like to think i'm not picky so much as i am particular. so when eatery was recommended, i thought hmm! let's just say that hmmm, turned into a wow. i can't get enough of the place. i've been back 3x in as many weeks. The first time, i ordered the house made ravioli - the combination of flavors is mouthwatering - the ravioli stuffed with chix, eggplant in a sage butter sauce - omg!! for dessert i had the vanilla bean cheesecake - 3 words, A-MA-ZING. my friend and i sat outside, we had the nicest server (in a ny restaurant? i know). also the drinks are phenomenal. i drank the ruby sipper - grapefruit something or other that i've spent the past 3 wks trying to recreate at home, that's ok tho, i'll just keep going back...all in all 2 thumbs up only b/c i don't have three. eatery: eat drink and be merry

I've been eating at Eatery for a while now and you can always count on the great food. I am a restaurant manager and one thing I always look for is service. Since I have been eating here, a lot of faces have come and gone and you can really notice the difference. The staff there now is exceptional. They are more attentive and really strive to give you the best dining experience. If you are like me and really enjoy good service you should definitely eat here and if you had a bad experience I would urge you to go back. TRUST ME you won't be sorry!

It's an especially great place for dates or starting a night out on the town. If you haven't been there, definitely try it.

My best girlfriend and I were looking for someplace to have dessert and drinks, and we spent a little time on citysearch and stumbled on the eatery. We decided to try it out. From the very beginning-making reservations-I had a great experience. The woman who took my reservations was super friendly and helpful. I got there late (stupid A train) but we were still seated right away, the host was a sweet guy, sat us at a great table outside. Our waiter was great, always there when we needed him, but never hovering or bothersome. The drinks! Oh, the drinks. I had a ruby sipper, which may have been the most delicious cocktail I've ever had. The dessert, chocolate banana spring rolls, delicious and creative. We ended up staying until the place closed, it was such a great time.

After being recommended by many of my friends, I finally decided to check this place out. It was a tuesday night me and a friend showed up around 8:30 and the place was already rocking. We were greeted by a young host and a smile. We didn't make any reservations so we had to wait for a table and went to the bar for a drink. We both had the cranapple martini that the bartender recommended and it was delicious. We waited about 10 minutes for the host to let us know that our table was ready. Our waitress was very helpful with the chef's special with a very detailed description. For starters, we shared the asian salad that was recommended by friends. It was full of flavors , espacially the sweet chili vinaigrette,i loved it. I then had the red curry chicken and my friend had the tequilla shrimp. We both agreed on how good evrything was.\r
From experience of going to a very busy place like this, I was a little worried about the usual problems you encounter, like the long wait for the food or the food being cold or over cooked..none of that there....i would recommend this place the same way it was recommended to me. I'll definitly eat there again.

I have been two eatery twice. The first time was a disaster. We were seated ok but there were about four hostesess and they were more involved in their conversation then in being welcoming. We are then seated on top of another party literally. We accepted that since it was busy and a friday night. Then we go to order our drinks and the waiter was sloowwww to come by. While we are waiting another waiter spills our neighboors drinks on my sister! Bad enough that happened he didn't apologize and he didn't offer any assistance if to show her to the bathroom to clean off! This was a friday night at 8 and we were dressed and ready to go out. Upset we left. Many months later i tried here again. Thinking maybe we just had a off night. Me and my boyfriend go there for lunch. Again the hostess was barely even needed and minimally hospital (like they were to good to even be there) We sit outside since it was a nice day. I go to put my elbows on the table and it was DISGUSTING! I rubbed my napkin over it to see if i could give it a quick rub down and it literally TURNED BLACK! GROSS! we order, my boyfriends food was decent and i ordered a chicken salad and the chicken was slopped on and cold and barely cooked! terrible really! I mean really you get better serivce and food at a dozen places only a block down from this place at half the price, so not worth the time!

First of all, when you are greeted at the door, you are warmly welcomed. The staff is all smiles and are knowledgable and caring. I went twice with people with serious allergys. The staff and Chef could not have been more accomodating.\r
\r
Every meal I have had (I've been there 4-5 times) has been very good. The last two meals I had were absosolutely fantastic. The people I gone with all enjoyed it as well - big time. As a Chef, I can tell you the menu is full of surprise combinations that are inventive and that really work. I can also tell you I felt that I learned something by how creative the Chef is. They work well with a sophisticated palate and even with a simpler palate. That's one of the keys to why this place works. As fun as the menu items look, it is all backed up on the plate. Some places are a bit too inventive for their own good, and miss the mark. Here, their aim is true. I highly reccomment the Pork Loin. It is perfect. The banana salsa it comes with had me dreaming about it for weeks, until I returned for more. The mole sauce is the best I have ever had (comes as part of wild mushroom empanada). In fact, what I learned was that I never really had a good mole sauce. It's a ssssssexy sauce. I'm telling you. Take some home and try it on someone. ;)\r
\r
I've gone with family and with dates. Even with kids. The bottom line is the food is fun, accessable yet sophisticated, inventive and will put a smile on your face, without damaging your wallet. The environment is bustling and jovial. The staff makes you feel special. I already have another reservation.

My sister recommended this place to me, as well as researching it on here on Citysearch and I must say the reviews do not do justice for the exquisite atmosphere, prompt and friendly serivice and excelllent mouth watering cuisine. We came on a busy Friday night with no reservations, after ordering a drink at the bar, we were seated within 15 minutes. Everyone there was so friendly and attentive to our needs. They served fabulous belini martinis and sangria. Out of this world!!!! The appetizers were quite delicious, we order savory crab cakes (extremely meaty and tatsy) as well as calamari. The staff was very attentive to our needs esp during an extremely busy night which we very much appreciated. My dinner was simply out of this world~I cannot say enough. I ordered the hanger steak (medium rare) with cheese fondue, potatoes and asaparugus. There was no left overs bc the food was so delicitable. It was light and flavorful. The cheese fondue added so much flavor to the already delicious steak. I was simply stuffed when I left but the atmosphere was fun and friendly and I will def be visiting again. Maybe even tonight

They served fabulous belini martinis and sangria. Out of this world!!!! The appetizers were quite delicious, we order savory crab cakes (extremely meaty and tatsy) as well as calamari. The staff was very attentive to our needs esp during an extremely busy night which we very much appreciated. My dinner was simply out of this world~I cannot say enough. I ordered the hanger steak (medium rare) with cheese fondue, potatoes and asaparugus. There was no left overs bc the food was so delicitable. It was light and flavorful. The cheese fondue added so much flavor to the already delicious steak. I was simply stuffed when I left but the atmosphere was fun and friendly and I will def be visiting again. Maybe even tonight

Pros: DELICIOUS DRINKS & FRIENDLY ATTENTIVE, STAFF

Cons: MIGHT NEED A RESERVATION ON A BUSY NIGHT IF U HAVE MORE THAN 4 PEOPLE
