    Each year I travel to NYC for a girls weekend and this is the second year in a row that we end our trip with 44&X brunch....our experience both times was fantastic and the food just delightful. Of course doesn't hurt that their brunch cocktail list is fun and yummy! Highly recommend this little gem!

    This is by no means a place that looks fancy, but it does have very good, high-end food, and very good service. It seems very expensive, considering the very casual ambiance, but I guess it really the food that counts. Four of us went there last week, each had two drinks and spent $340, including tip. I really enjoyed myself, but just felt it was a little overpriced, even for NYC. If the price tag does not scare you away, then by all means go, and you will have a great meal.

    Great location. Great ambiance. Waiter was very professional and very friendly. Drink/wine portions were generous. Loved the menu. Had a hard time choosing. Food was up-to-date and interesting but not fadish. Perfect portions. Very flavorful pairings. EXCELLENT dessert list. Third visit, everything is consistent. Attention paid even to the quality of the bread and coffee. Definitely my go-to favorite.....

    We had the best time at 44 & X. The food was outstanding - everything we got was spot on and the entire staff were all so friendly and accommodating. Being new to the neighborhood, I'm so glad to have this place nearby. As an avid cook, I often find myself leaving restaurants thinking "I could have made that meal better"...not so with 44 & X!! I will definitely be returning. The short ribs are an absolute must try and vermont cheddar macaroni and cheese is something dreams are made of.

    Loved the restaurant. Attractive with outstanding food, drinks and service though on the pricey side. The noise level was well over what we generally enjoy but as we approached the 8:00 pm hour (theatre start time), the noise level diminished. Overall, it was a terrific restaurant and we will return.

    I did not actually eat at this restaurant. We arrived 15 minutes early and the waitress could not find my reservation (she inquired if we made reservations for a restaurant with a similar name located nearby). When I showed her my reservation, she looked again and still could not find it....she was keeping a list of names and reservations on a piece of paper. She told us that we would have to wait for our designated time and then she would try to get us in. Needless to say, we left and were seated immediately at nearby restaurant that had more of a 'neighborhood' atmosphere and a good brunch selection.

    Dinner was enjoyable and our food was prepared perfectly. It's not a huge space, so it's intimate and can be a bit crowded, but not over the top. We sat on the side that includes the bar, and the noise level was vibrant, but nothing that took away from our experience. Very worthwhile if you've not visited here before.

    I have been coming here for years and each time, it is worse than the time before. They have the worst table design and they will put tables so close that you are basically sharing a table with the people next to you. They are rude when you come in, the menu is almost the same as ten years ago and the staff is slovenly and unfriendly.

    We found the meal pricey, especially the appetizers though my chopped salad was good. We told our waiter that we had a 7:30 show (we arrived at 5:45). Our waiter was very nice and conscientious of that, but still there was an unusually wait between the appetizers and when our entree was served. Too long. I don't blame the waiter

    First visit to 44 & X and it was great! Fantastic brunch - omelets were huge and delicious. Our server was outstanding - he gave us lots of information on the menu and helped us narrow in on the items that we ordered. It was a little to cold to sit outside, but the outdoor dining looks to be a good spot for sometime in the future.

    I think I could have eaten everything on this menu. There are great choices for everyone. We got the Ravioli appetizer that had spinach, mushroom and crab meat and it was so delicious I might have it as an entree the next time. It is not what you would expect, it's more of a deconstructed ravioli as was the beat salad. But still delicous. We had the special chilean seabass and that was also amazing. They do kind of pack you in there and it's kind of loud, so might not be the spot if you're looking for a quite evening.

    Went to brunch on Saturday with 4 adults and 1 sleeping baby and had a great time. We were seated outside on a nice morning and able to get the energetic vibe of the city on a Saturday morning as well as eat some great food. I was actually most impressed with the incredibly attentive service from our waiter and busboys. Even though we were in the far corner of the outdoor area and they had to actually walk out and around the barrier to get us water and such they did so with speed, frequency, and pleasure.

    We like to start off with one of cocktails from the cute Broadway themed menu. Then I love the Mediterranean chopped salad because it is light and very tasty. My husband loves the short ribs while I opt for the most delicious salmon dish. It NEVER disappoints and the vegetables with it are fabulous !!l We had pumpkin crem brulee and coffee and really enjoyed the entire evening.

    While our appetizers were very tasty (crab fritter/goat cheese soufflé), they were a prelude to lackluster entrees. The establishment is nicely appointed and the staff friendly, but the raviolo and steak entrees were extremely disappointing and bland. The fillet was technically well executed while the raviolo was cumbersome to eat. I got tired of it by the time I reach to the middle of the dish, a mass of dry/unseasoned spinach and mushrooms on a sheet of pasta which clung unappetizingly to the dish. The BROADWAY themed cocktails seemed incongruous with the stylish setting. We get it- it's Midtown. Nevertheless, I might return one day for another pistachio-goat-cheese soufflé.
