    Good for for far west theater. Some dishes worked better than others. We usually eat at 44 1/2, but decided to try 44&Xbecause they have a more extensive menu. Tuna sashimi was boring, not flavorful, a very small portion, and not half as interesting as the tuna tartare at their sister restaurant. The tilapia was very good. Great crust and delicious polenta, how ever the sole was a major disappointment... It was overly seasoned with pepper. And the vegetables were swimming in a butter sauce, which was not clearly stated on the menu. I think we will return to 44&X next time we are in the neighborhood.

    Found this restuarant last year while seeing a show on Broadway. The walk a few blocks in to Hell's Kitchen is so worth it! The menu is inventive and delicious. The staff is great and the place is always hopping with a sleek, fun vibe. Can't go wrong.

    44 & X is what I like to describe as a "scene" room, complete with hot servers in tight t-shirts working in a very well decorated space. The food is good, but not particularly memorable. My friend had the short ribs, and reported they were delicious. I had the special Cod over haricot verts, which was just ok. The staff were not particularly knowledgeable about food and wine, but were friendly and attentive.

    While the menu is great, for both brunch and dinner, the service is at best erratic. You can get attentive waiter or you can get 15 minutes of no one paying attention to you while you're trying to order.

  • Disappointment
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    I have been there a few times and never had a problem, however my last experience was very disappointing. We arrived at 11:30 for brunch and waited until 12:30 to be able to order coffee. We waited an hour more just to order. The restaurant seemed pretty busy for Labor Day brunch, however they should have been prepared for it. When the food finally arrived, I was even more disappointed. My bacon was cold and the dry, my brioche was drenched in maple syrup, and I had a half raspberry on top (instead of a raspberry coulis). The only good part of it was their mini muffins they serve at the beginning.

    We were staying in the neighborhood and opted to try this place for brunch on a Sunday. We were pleasantly surprised with both the food and the service. We were seated outside, but the service was excellent (water and coffee glasses refilled frequently). We got the Mediterranean salad which was delicious, the french toast, which was dense and rich, but delicious, and the eggs with mushrooms. The eggs were cooked very well, but the toast was cold and the mushrooms could have been more varied in the dish. We left very satisfied. The inside is also a lovely open airy space!

    Our first restaurant in New York, and it was absolutely perfect. The waiters are really nice. They always brought us some hot bread and cold water. The food is absolutely amazing, I tried the salmon first, it was really really spicy, but so good. The hamburger proposed is really not expensive, but believe me, it's so great. The steak was really well cooked, all the sides were perfect. In brief, a really good restaurant!

    Made a rez for my sons birthday based solely on on-line reviews and we had a really fun and delicious evening. I was surprised by how casual the dining room was, but it was still nice. First the service: really professional, attentive but totally not overbearing. The hostess was non-threatening, very flexible (let us finish our drinks at the bar without rushing us) Very subtle things that made the service so good? I realized after dinner that I never touched the wine bottle once. The waiter was NOT hovering, but very aware of our needs. The food was really good. We all ordered different things and we left nothing on our plates. The only downside was the music soundtrack: if you didn't like Ke$ha, you were in for a rough night.

    I made reservations for Sunday Brunch at 44&X. We skipped the drinks and both opted for egg dishes -- the food came very quickly and the portion sizes were HUGE. My scrambled eggs must have been made with 5-6 eggs! The food was tasty and even though they had served us very quickly, we weren't rushed out.

    Went there after a matinee. Hostess was very friendly and sat us right away. waiter was great and didn't rush us even though it was a saturday night. crab fritters and lobster taco for appetizers were fabulous. Some of our party had steak and some fish. both choices were delicious. wine list not extensive but choices were nice ones. Will definitely go back!

    We accidentally found this restaurant after a play a couple of years ago. They had one table open and it was late but they very graciously let us in and we had a wonderful dining experience. Now, back in the city, we made sure we went back. It was every bit as good as we remembered and will definitely come back and recommend to friends. Great food, atmosphere and service. That's what we look for in a restaurant.
