I have been going to the Hourglass Tavern for years but I will never eat there again. I went last evening with a dear friend prior to seeing a Broadway show and there was only seating at the upstairs bar (no problem there). We sat down

The resturaunt has two new owners. They have updated the surrondings to a comforable place for dinner. The food is good and the friendliness of owners and staff makes you want to come back again. A new bar is being built that will allow for relaxation before or after dinner or a play. I would give five stars for food, service and ambience.

This restaurant is advertised in many theater playbills to be a nice place to go before catching a show, so my friends and I tried it. While the host was nice, our waitresses and servers were not as kind. They questioned as to why we wanted our food so quickly when we were trying to catch an 8:00pm musical. I also thought the food was expensive, but I guess compared to other restaurant the price isn't horrifying. The quality was decent. If you're going before a show, I would recommend going at least a couple hours before. It gets busy!

Two words: tourist trap. The owner pressured our party to come inside after reading the menu. We were seated on the top floor, which resembled eating in somebody's apartment. We were not charmed by the decor, atmosphere, service, or food. Only drunkenness could explain the ineptitude of our waitress: our table was not properly prepared, another patron had to alert her that we were ready to order (after waiting 20 minutes), she dropped utensils, food, and spilled water, and she thought she could compensate for her horrid performance by offering us free dessert! Besides that the food was bland, no tastier than a Jersey diner on Route 1&9. If you want to waste your money and time, dine here.

I had my wedding meal there (we had our first date there and eat there often) and it couldn't have been better. The owners are the sweetest people around and if you have a larger party there is a little known third floor which can be your private party room!

Delicious as always, very resonable, and charm, charm, charm!

Pros: Service, Inexpensive

This quaint but well-run Restaurant Row institution is perfect for a pre-theater meal. The menu is small but diverse, the service is top-notch, and the food is always good. Nothing out of the ordinary here, just delicious comfort in a nicer than average setting.

We needed something quick and cheap to eat before our show started. We picked this for the novelty, but really enjoyed it. The food was surprisingly better than we expected -- very fresh, lots of veggies (good for the vegetarians like me!) and even though it was Saturday Night at 7pm, they weren't really croweded, so we didn't even get a time limit, though we were in and out in 45 minutes. We ordered off the prixe fixe menu -- salads and entrees for 12.95. Service was very friendly too. Highly recommend.
