"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
  • "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!"

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "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 eat here often, but, mostly when we can get a table outside: gets very noisy indoors. The menu is diverse and food consistently good -"
    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
  • "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!"

  • "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
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The sound level was beyond high. The food was average to below. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Food was delicious! I would definitely go back again and recommend it to other people. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "This was our 3rd time at eatery and it never disappoints. Good is great at reasonable prices - love their homemade white sangria !!! "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Eatery has never let me down. The good is always incredible (especially the Mac & Jack) and the service is for the most part consistently good. One of my favorite restaurants in Midtown. "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "All drinks we ordered were weak. I live in Hell's Kitchen for over 7 years...I do not drink often, that's how I even knew they were week!!! Bartender was not friendly at all!"
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Service and food were good. Constant loud music makes coversation hard. Will ask for outside table next time."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Please bring it back! It's torture that it's still on the menu, yet not available. It's so delicious. That said, the hummus, edamame and turkey burger are still excellent choices. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "My GF and I were looking for a nice spot for brunch. A yelp search lead us to the eatery. We were very happy with the prompt and curious service. The food was excellent and the waiter was very friendly. We will be back!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Enjoyed it so much on Saturday - did it again on Sunday "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We've been here many times over the years and have yet to be disappointed. The food is delicious, and a bit different than you will find elsewhere. It's at 9th Ave. and 53rd."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "We went pre-theatre and the waiter was outstanding and the timing perfect. The food, however, was just okay. My sirloin burger was overcooked, small and not the tastiest, and my daughter's vegetarian dish was not warm nor did it contain the advertised butternut squash it was supposed to have had (though, to the waiter's credit, he gave us a separate side of the squash, again cold and requiring reheating!). My wife, though, really enjoyed her fish tacos, and my other daughter's salad was fine. All in all, an okay experience, but for $100+ not nearly worth it, sorry. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "It's always disappointing to discover that a favorite restaurant has gone downhill. We dined here many times over the years, confident that we'd enjoy a better than average dinner and a good value. This last visit did not meet our expectations. Food was dull and uninteresting, under seasoned and not particularly fresh tasting. Nothing that any of us sampled was bad, just boring. With so many alternatives in the neighborhood, I doubt we'll ever go back."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Found hair in three dishes. Service was awful - don't treat customers with respect."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Went here to get dinner before a show. Wasn't sure what to expect as the ambiance is kind of generic-looking. However the food was great - in particular, the mac and cheese was awesome and the almond tart was to die for. Also the dessert coffees were quite good as well. Our waiter was very friendly too. Would definitely recommend especially if you are looking for somewhere to eat pre-theater."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Great salads and menu at this local hotspot. Reservations are a must for the weekend brunch, especially Sunday."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The staff was amazing and attentive...I would just go back for the treatment we received. "
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Good as always, our waitress was extemely helpful and attentive. Nice menu. Always a reliable place to eat."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "It had been a while since I had eaten at Eatery. We had tickets for a show, and it was nearby, so.... When we got there they were going to squeeze our party onto a tiny table in the front, but then they gave us a table in the way back. Which was fine. Our food was fine. I used to have dreams about the Asian Chicken Salad, but for some reason the salad was not what I remembered. The best item we had was the dessert, the E-wich. The kids literally ate it with their hands. And the Mac and Jack. Service was fine, workers came by and asked how things were more then once... We went, we ate, we left. Mission accomplished. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The Eatery never disappoints! The food was excellent and the waitress was knowledgable and lovely. And the drinks were yummy!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "or maybe I'm spoiled by their usual super quick lunch turn. I felt we had to wait a long time for our order to be taken -- and then a correspondingly long time to get our food. That said. lunch was delicious as always."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Loved Eatery! Everyone there was amazing, the food was as well and a wonderful late night dining experience. We had a member of our party with food allergies and our server was incredibly accommodating and understanding and made sure everything was the best it could be. Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "We had a really good experience at the Eatery. The food was great and the service was excellent! Best service experience we've ever had! "
