Diner Reviews
  • "Had a nice quiet Sunday dinner at East of Eight. Great way to end a weekend. Salads are fresh and tasty. Entrees are made to perfection with just enough seasoning."

  • "This is the second time I have eaten at the restaurant. The food was fantastic and the service right on the money. Hassan and Hilberto were very attentive and personable. Highly recommended and the best - very reasonable."

  • "I love dining here.. have done this ever since they opened when I was still working in the area... I especially love the garden.. so peaceful, so relaxing, so pretty.. Service is always attentive and their $9.95 lunch is a bargain: delicious choices, plentiful portions, good value"

  • "Lovely secret garden in the heart of Chelsea. The food is very good and moderately priced and I love dining here in warm weather. I'm so glad it's my neighborhood restaurant."

  • "Just a good neighborhood place for business lunch. Very consistent food and service."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "They tried to make the food look exciting but it was only average. Menu is also not exciting. Much better restaurants in the area for the same price. This restaurant has gone down hill continuously over the past 10 years. It used to be a great place to eat."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "restaurant was ok - the garden seating area was nice. pricey brunch prix fixe for what you get. $16 for a basket of bread/muffins, an entrée, coffee and what amounted to a small bloody mary was too much when you consider there was nothing special about any of the components. For $16 and a basic 2 egg and sausage plate, knock my socks off with a mega bloody mary, not something served in a water glass. I wouldn't go out of my way for this place, but if you are looking for something to eat in the specific area, it's ok."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "East of Eight is very convenient but otherwise mediocre. We had the prix fix for dinner which is a good bargain for the price. The food is not particularly good. Stay away from the mussels as they are minuscule."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Again, I took new people to East of Eighth for lunch and they loved it. They have an incredible luncheon special for $9.95 with wonderful (not boring, everyday choices). The service is always impeccable. I will keep coming back here."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Comfort food. Delicious comfort food. So hard to find these days. No fancy chandeliers, no unrecognizable thing-a-ma-gics floating around on my plate, just good and hearty food at a fair price. The way it should be. As good old General MacArthur once said: I shall return!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "We went for the pre-show dinner before the Book of Mormon musical and it was awesome food for the 3 course $19.99 special. The mussels, guac and chips, mozza ball and chicken noodle soup and it was all delicious. The portions are huge! It is very close to the subway and it is definitely worth checking out."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I've been to this restaurant multiple times and the food and service are always wonderful."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I've had brunch at East of Eighth before and it has always been a good experience. However the back area upstairs was not air conditioned and it was so hot up there. Additionally the dish that I ordered had a very funky and gamey texture to the chicken. I would order something else other then the egg white frittata. That dish was not good."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "A friend and I wanted to get brunch in the city. She was coming from Long Island and I from White Planes, and this was the perfect middle point. the food was wonderful, and the service was good. we were the first people in, so it was quiet for most of our meal, but before we left it started to get busier. Overall it was a wonderful experience."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "It is likely that we'd return time and again to this Chelsea spot just for the great price on their early dinner specials. But that isn't even the big draw, it's the food, which has been consistently great. For this trip we went with some relatives, and everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. Add in excellent, friendly, service, and very good decor and it's easy to see why, once again, we'll be back."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Ambience was pleasant, food was poor to fair, service slow and not attentive, minimum tip was left. Would no dine there again."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "This was our second time here and our first time sitting outside which was absolutely beautiful. We sat right next to a little pond with fish in it, and there were little lanterns, candles and tiny Christmas lights on. So nice. The guacamole and mussels were really good, but my Caesar salad w/shrimp was actually so gross that I didn't eat it. Lettuce was wilted, and there were tons of tiny shrimp which had been sauteed. I'm used to 4 or 5 large grilled shrimp...these almost seemed canned...ewww. Our waiter was competent, not overly friendly though. I'd go again for the atmosphere and order something different!"

  • "When dining with people with food problems (allergies, etc.) it is wonderful to dine where the wait staff know the product and are willing to help with adjustments. Thank you East of Eighth for such well trained and personable staff"

  • "The food was very good, but I only had a salad. The outdoor garden was superb- quiet and beautiful."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "nothing amazing but nothing bad. friendly service in a somewhat out-of-date feeling room. Garden salad was plentiful (though served on a plate too small to toss it - would be better served in a larger bowl) and the added salmon was very generous. fair price, fair food, fair service - easy place to do a basic business lunch."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Quite decent and generous meal at good price. Good bread bowl. Dessert less exciting"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "You cannot go wrong with this restaurant. A FAVORITE !"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "After reading a few yelp reviews on brunch in Chelsea, we decided to go to East of Eighth. The food was decent but the eggs were too greasy for my taste. The menu was decent but overall I wasn't impressed. It was noon and the restaurant was almost empty the entire time. It also seemed to be mostly elderly people. Overall it wasn't a terrible experience, just not what we were expecting/"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Enjoyed dinner here before the Irish rep play. Pre-fixe menu a good value of 20$. I enjoyed the Jamon Croquettes while my friend had the onion rings - not that crispy for appetizers. I had the Lamb burger - could have used more Harrisa in the yogurt sauce and ,y firend enjoyed the pork chops. Desser was unusual combo of apple and pineapple crisp tasty and friend enjoyed the crème caramel...Great bargin"

  • "The special was a filet mignon. I had asked for mine to be rare, and it was a medium cook; my dining companion asked for medium rare filet mignon and it came out medium well. The service was horrible. Once our waitress found out we were not drinking alcohol, she never made an appearance at the table until it was time to pick up the payment."

  • "We enjoy this restaurant and chose their July 4 special. It was better than we expected. Chicken, ribs, corn on the cob, onion rings, sweet potatoes. It's a shame July 4 doesn't happen more often."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Great food, service is a bit slow. I wish there were more like it in my hood!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "I was delighted to be introduced to this restaurant by a dining voucher. My friend and I agreed that we would be happy to return. The food was well-prepared--we both had sesame-crusted tuna--and the service was well above average. There were plenty of choices on the menu."

  • "The title says it all. Nothing too fancy. But the good is good, as is the service."

  • "With prices sometimes lower than neighborhood diners, better food and service, and much more comfortable, East of Eighth is a Chelsea gem. Look for their lunch and early dinner specials as well as frequent promotions. I love their garden."

  • "We were in NY for ABFF. We found this spot searching through Open Table. Food was good; delivered in a timely manner. We sat in the back garden which was really nice. The breeze made it just right and the service was on point. I would go back again and I would recommend to others."
