    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.

    It's often hard to find a good pre-theater restaurant -- too many tacky, touristy places. This isn't one of those. The service is excellent, the food inventive and tasty and the location.. um, sit inside. Unfortunately, the restaurant faces (across the street) a large gas station with lots of taxis. Indoors is an oasis. - Rob & Jeanne

    Brought a few clients here last week for lunch and although the food was delicious, it took quite awhile for us to get our food. Overall the service was slow and waiters were not as attentive as I would've hoped. I may come back here as I enjoyed the food, but I'd be hesitant to bring a client.

    It won't matter what you order, it doesn't matter if you like fish or beef or pork, it really doesn't matter. Because what ever you order will be terrific. On my first visit to NYC at in June '14 I ventured to 44&X on advice from a friend back in Texas. I had high expectations but didn't expect what I got...extremely great food! I went with a party of 3 and we each ordered a different fish entre, all three were exquisite and cook perfect. I went back to NY with some lawyers who are food snobs, I wanted to see if it was a one time experience, but no, it was just as good the second time and I can't wait to someday go back. The atmosphere is not extraordinary, yet nice, but the food is what's hot in Hell's Kitchen!!

    After 3 trips to the City this year, 44&X has become my "go to" place to an awesome meal, great service, and best food & ambiance. Fun & romantic. Great cosmopolitan menu with incredible specials - chef out does himself every day. Waiters are hot, cute, wear tightest pants, and are super friendly! I have never had a bad meal here - came this time to celebrate my birthday with my husband! Sean (aka "Clark Kent") was awesome! In June server Allen was just as great, and all servers are lots of fun! This is still an undiscovered gem and we will keep coming back. Much better food and hotter servers than elmo in Chelsea, which always gets rated as the "best". I recommend skipping elmo and going to 44 & X - you will NOT be disappointed!!

    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.

    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.

    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.
