"Comfort food with a trendy twist" is the calling card of this Hell's Kitchen American where the mid-priced chow arrives in "minimalist"' "diner-chic" digs; "be-seen" types like the "gay-friendly" people-watching and tolerate the high-volume "hustle and bustle"

Diner Reviews
  • "Service was extremely slow; one waiter took our drink order and then never returned; had to hail down another waiter to help. His name was Ron and he was GREAT!!!"

  • "We had family in from out of town staying at the Hilton. This was a short walk toward restaurant alley and worth the short walk. The waiter was very friendly and helpful with selections. The apps were mixed in my opinion but all tasty. The entrees were all as expected and I would say good eats for the value. The décor is very simple unless you are eating outside (only for smaller groups 2 or 4). The bar looked very small but the drinks we order for the table were excellent. Overall a very solid experience."

  • "We met a friend for brunch and had a really great meal. A panini, a turkey burger, and lemon ricotta pancakes all turned out well. My Maker's Mark Arnold Palmer was delicious as well. Only gripe was that service could have been a bit more attentive, but nothing too awful. Would go back in the future!"

  • "I have been to the Eatery many times, however, I did find it to be very loud. This time, we were offered a table in the rear, which I did not know existed! It was perfect. We had a hamburger, which was wonderful, and salads, which were very good."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Joined 2 friends for brunch this weekend upon a recommendation. Service was awesome. I had to wait for two and the bartender came around to offer me water while I waited. Classy touch. Our waiter could answer all questions on the menu and joked about being on the hook if I was disappointed. Food came, we all loved our meal. Try the Ricotta Pancakes, they rock!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We had diverse food needs in our group and everyone was accommodated with the yummy and reasonably priced food offered at Eatery. Special requests were handled with no problem. The free rice chips are AMAZING and should be packaged and sold!"

  • "Food took forever. It was cold when we got it. The waiter was nice but overall not a great experience. I don't foresee ever going back or recommending :/"

  • "I had an omelette with smoked mozzarella and sausage (with sun-dried tomatoes and garlic). Great flavor combination. Wife had lemon ricotta pancakes - also wonderful. We started with the Beignets - Served with Blackberry Compote and Powdered Sugar. Service was great - our waiter Abe was really informative, friendly and just the right amount of attention to our needs."

  • "You HAVE TO get their Mac & Jack (add some bacon), it's the best. I also had the summer salad, which was delicious and fresh. The waiters are so nice, so pleasant."

  • "have been here many times and enjoyed. they have a nice broad menu and it's especially good for lunch and brunch. Not the best food ever, but reliable and tasty. this place is super-noisy though so don't go to Eatery for an intimate conversation!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The Eatery has consistently good food and upbeat and efficient service. Their fish dishes are fresh and beautifully prepared, the Mac and Cheese is great comfort food, and their salads are crisp and flavorful. They will also work to get your meal to you in time for a nearby Broadway show. We've always had a great experience there with wonderful service."

  • "Thank you for another wonderful dining experience. I've been to the Eatery many times in the past and the food quality and service are always awesome and consistent. Whatever your secret formula is it works like a charm. I tell everyone I know to pay a visit to the Eatery. I booked a reservation for three picky people and they ALL loved my selection. Thanks for making me look good. I'm looking forward to my next visit."

  • "We tried several dishes and fell in love with the mac n cheese. Wine and beer menu was accessible. Kid friendly atmosphere. Quick service."

  • "I love that Eatery has so many options, and want to keep coming back to try something else! The drinks, food, and service at brunch were great, and now we live in the neighborhood, so we'll definitely be back for dinner."

  • "Great spot for dinner before theatre! We liked the food , drinks and service!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I was greatly anticipating to eat at the Eatery, so much to the fact I had it as one of my restaurants to dine at while visiting NYC. After ordering food for a party of 8 people, my family & I waited over an hour & 10 mins for our food, with the restaurant less than half full of other customers. We spoke with the manager & inquired what was taking so long & he said he didn't realized we had ordered food, apologized, & walked to the kitchen to check on our order. To make matters worse, the manager did in fact know we didn't order because he stood less than 5 ft from our table at the hostess stand. My family finally received their food but my French Toast was missing from the order & finally arrived an hour & 30 mins after I ordered it!"

  • "I chose this spot for a girls' brunch, because it was mid-way for everyone, but it was difficult for us to continue our brunch for too long. The music was so loud that everyone had to speak over each other, and because everyone was speaking over each other, you really had to concentrate on your conversations and repeat ourselves multiple times. We had to leave as soon as we were finished with our brunch because we were just getting a headache. The food was good, but it's nothing special in NYC."

  • "and the usually decent turkey burger was dried out. Not sure what was up -- the restaurant is usually a winner but it was a let down this time. They were also out of edamame and hummus."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Admittedly, I go to and refer others to go to EATERY mostly in the summertime for their Watermelon Martinis and Watermelon Margaritas. They're very refreshing and the place has a good vibe. The servers are always on point, too, and very well-trained."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Food and service was very good. Tables are very close together so we had to talk over diners sitting on both sides of us. Luckily the weather was nice because we had to wait outside for our table...there was no place to wait inside without crowding diners already seated."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Food was mediocre - I ordered an omelette with spinach and cheese that was completely tasteless. My friend had poached eggs that were inedible. Not sure how it's possible to make simple egg dishes that are flavorless or inedible, but they were. Lot's of great choices in the neighborhood, so just pass this place by."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Coming into the city for pre and post-theater dining can get expensive. Rushing through lunches are costlier per minute than dinner. That was till I found the Eatery this past weekend. Our reservation was honored on time, the service was well-paced, the food very good, and the prices reasonable. I almost aLways ask the name of the server, but this time I forgot. I would have wanted to give him a shout-out because he was one of the nicest and best waiters ever. I look forward to going there again."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Poor service. Food did not come out right. The chicken was dry and the fish tacos were average at best. I'd give the food one star but one person enjoyed the burger. In general the food was of lackluster quality. All in all I would never return and inform anyone who listens to avoid this place at all costs. Way to many good restaurants in that neighborhood to waste time here. Will be putting up a Yelp review about this as well."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I live in the neighborhood and have gone a half dozen times, each time hoping that the food and drink might go up a notch. They never do. If you're more interested in a fun, noisy environment than food, this place will do. Brunch drinks need work--when will bartenders learn how to make a real Bloody Mary? P.S. If I have to recommend anything, go for the salads."

  • "Loved this neighborhood find. Great food .Great service. The food came very promptly. Many of the dishes could be shared. Would go back again."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "I have been here many times given closeness to where I live and reliable fare. This last time the service was chaotic, slow and disappointing. It was unclear who was our server and we kept having long delays before getting the next course or the check. This needs to be looked at because this is the kind of restaurant in which you expect pretty seamless service and, if you don't get that, it may just not be worth going back to"

  • "We eat here often, but, mostly when we can get a table outside: gets very noisy indoors. The menu is diverse and food consistently good -"

  • "Our waiter Frank was charming and attentive. Every dish that came out was better than the one before. Great choices for vegetarians and the flavors were terrific. Looking forward to coming back without the kids!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We loved the variety offered and the food we ordered but the noise level made it unpleasant. I know that the acoustics of a place is a given but is there really a need to pump loud music into an already noisy environment causing patrons to vibrate in their chairs and shout even louder to be heard on at Saturday at noon?"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Always reliable and good for any occasion. Service is impeccable."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We enjoyed a great brunch. There are lots of unique and healthy options, although the cornflake crusted French toast was yummy!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "It's always hard to know if someone's just having a bad day... but the likelihood every single member of the staff is in a fowl mood is pretty indicative of a systemic management issue. even though the place wasn't very busy, our waiter was constantly pushy for us to order. The guy serving us water, spilled half a glass on us, and just turned away and kept going, leaving us to wipe it down, and then having to feel bad about asking for a dry napkin. The lag time between ordering a drink and actually getting it was close to 20 minutes (and that's not counting getting the wrong drink delivered, and then the waiting arguing with a fake smile that it was our fault and not his). Props to the kirchen, the food was pretty darn good!"

  • "This was our 3rd time at eatery and it never disappoints. Good is great at reasonable prices - love their homemade white sangria !!! "

  • "The sound level was beyond high. The food was average to below. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I came for brunch with some family friends visiting from out of town. We all had coffee and omelets. Before our meal came they brought the table little cornbread muffins, which was a nice touch and they were delicious. The food itself, though (the omelet and toast), were far from what I'd call good. I'm giving Eatery 3 stars as it's a fair average of the highs/lows."

  • "The Mac & Jac is absolutely delicious, with its amazing the caramelized onions on top! No need to add bacon, mushrooms or anything. The waiters are really kind, and the prices are really reasonable for the food! I highly recommend it. "
