"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"

    Eatery doesn't have the ambience, service or quality of food we enjoyed at Whym. We were disappointed. We will, however, give it a second chance when we go to the theater in the area.

    My girlfriend and I try to meet up for dinner once a month and always look for somewhere trendy to go to or just to try a new place. We went afterwork and it was not busy at first. The crowd started to come after 7pm. The food was okay. The scene was nice and a good place to hang out with groups. The service was excellent! I would go back and try something different to eat.

    Great experience! We arrived early but were seated and informed that kitchen wasn't open for another 10 min (it was 4:50) and quickly provided menus and placed a drink order while we perused the menu. The food was delicious, great spin and takes on classic food. I had the house burger and it was well cooked and well made with so many great flavors. Spicy fries were awesome. Drinks were made well, definitely try the blackberry gin rickey. My wife and I will definitely visit again in the future.

    We had a reasonably large party with 5 adults and 4 children. Eatery was very accommodating and not at the least put out by the kids. The service was great! Our waiter was friendly and outgoing, a really nice guy. The food was fabulous, everyone was very happy. We will eat here again.

    We made a reservation, and although walk in we're being seated. We were seated at a table crowded near the next table although there was available seating near the window, which looked much more comfortable . Had coffee with lipstick on the cup, waited too long for it to be replaced, and because we sat so close to the next table it was deposited on their table. We will never return

    In a nice corner of Hell's Kitchen with dimmed lights and candles a rather cold reception and glacial Cerberus dog hosting those whom have dared (?) to make a reservation... I asked to be seated on the terrace and a " first arrived first served" was the sharp answer. Then after being seated in a corner table, we had to face to an impossible choice of wines... and a server shaking the bottle of a fine red Malbec before serving ! Food was fair, defenitely overloaded with lipids, impossible to finish the "house burger" so dry and with a huge bread covering the whole with no vegetables or fresh salad... luckily the few muscular customers were nice to stare at. No Eatery for me for long time specially for my birthday !

    I went for brunch with a group of 5, including my 6 year old cousin. They had a regular kids' menu, but nothing on it was brunch or breakfast food, so we struggled to find something the picky eater would want. Additionally, they completely forgot to brink one of our drinks, and it was hard to get someone's attention to remind them, despite the restaurant not being that full. The food was excellent as usual though!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
