    The Service at this restaurant was exceptional. The food was very good too. We sat near the window in a circular booth, was great for a group of 6 and although the restaurant was loud, it was very manageable. The filets were excellent, my side of asparagus was stringy and not very seasonal. Otherwise that, I would highly recommend. Also, they came around a few times with freshly baked cookies on a cookie tray offering them to the tables. Very nicely done!

    My friend was in from Florida and I had been to the Redeye before and I knew she would love it. We had a 5:30 reservation on Saturday night after we saw the Jersey Boys. We first had two drinks at the bar which were fabulous and the bar is very lovely and lively. Then we were seated at a really nice table for two on the end and both of us had a nice view. By 6/6:30 the place was packed. We both had steak. I had the filet mignon and she had the ribeye. They were cooked to perfection. We also had a side of fries and the french string beans. The sides were more than enough and the fries tasted like they were cooked to order and they never ended. Would go again in a heartbeat. Excellent restaurant in a great location.

    Unfortunately, the food at the RedEye Grill is quite ordinary. That is a shame because the room is large and lovely, the noise level energetic without being intrusive, and the service better than average. If only the food lived up to the rest of the experience.

    Every once in a while we return to Red Eye Grill, a large, flashy restaurant which is someone's idea of what a New York restaurant (not an elegant one) should be. The host station was manned by a suit who without his glasses could not find our reservation; fortunately he was saved by an elegant young woman whose grace made up for his myopia. Everything on the menu always reads as wonderful, but the food, no matter what is ordered, is surprisingly ordinary tasting. The prices would be easier to accept if the food were better. No doubt we will return but not for some time.

    We have eaten here many times, but found our latest visit disappointing. The tables for two are quite close in typical NY fashion, but the gentleman at the table next to us was so loud that we were unable to have a conversation and they moved our table closer to him during the meal to give the couple on our other side room to get into their seat. Service was also only mediocre - expect more from Redeye. When our food was served the waiter did not come by to ensure that everything was good. I had finished my wine with my appetizer and would have like another glass, but he was not there to ask. We also had to approach him while he was at the table next to us to get our bill. Trout almandine was excellent - perfectly fileted & prepared.

    The food was very good, the service intermediate. We were seated next to an aisle and spent the entire dinner with waiters rushing past us. If we would return, I would make sure I was seated far away from the main server routes.

    We went here for dinner before seeing the symphony at Carnegie Hall. Loved it! Had a very nice meal on the outdoor terrace. The food was delicious, albeit a bit pricey, but it's a nice restaurant in Midtown Manhattan with good food - what do you expect?

    A dear old friend of mine lives abroad and every October comes to NYC on a business trip, he misses good American Bistro style food, and REDEYE Grill is one of his favorite spots, if for nothing else but the amazing Lobster Cobb Salad. As far as great American Bistro's that would include some of Chicago's finest, REDEYE stands on it's own with need to compare. If you want steak and lobster and an over sized amazing hot dog, then The REDEYE Grill is your premier dinning choice.

    In the Carnegie Hall area, there aren't too many great options for brunch, but this is one. Wish the prices were a little lower, but the food is good, and the tables are well-spaced to ensure conversation.

    They loved it - the musicians, great food, upbeat and bright atmosphere. Out waiter was awesome. We started with wine and immediately warm chocolate chip cookies arrived. I expect tables nearby were on dessert, but what a great pre-appetizer. The chef was very accommodating and prepared a meal that was not on the menu. This is a great pre-theatre destination and as good afterwards when there's no rush.

    We ordered the crispy artichokes and they were so crispy we couldn't even chew them. Our server said that was they way they were supposed to be. Everyone around us got bread at the start of the meal, our waiter forgot. Our drinks were great but it took us 3 requests to get lemon twists. Finally, we ordered the crab legs which were only slightly warm. Lastly, the waiter never came by to ask how the meal was. Overall, the ambience of the restaurant was very nice but the service and food was disappointing especially given the cost of the meal. Not planning on returning.

    Went with a friend to celebrate my birthday - had a reservation - greeted with a smile and immediately sat - wonderful waiter - quick service and a fantastic meal - we had the trout and the lobster/crab ravioli with the special mashed potatoes (could have made a meal on them alone - sooo good) - my friend told the waiter it was my birthday so out comes the Banana Cream Pie with a sparkler on top and the waiters singing Happy Birthday - It was a great meal and great time!!

    Although a nice, comfortable room, the tables are pretty close together. The menu is superior except for the prices. Even by NYC standards the cost for three people was pretty steep. The food was good but not spectacular. The cocktails were pricey as well and highballs were skimpy on the booze. I. Would go back if for nothing else but the herb fresh cut fries.

    The service was good but not excellent like usual. I had asked for tartar sauce to accompany my Cod but it did not come with the fish, much later, after many reminders, after I was almost done with the entree The rolls were late too, and when they passsed arounb the frech cookies, we were just starting out main course, but he never returned. Thserver was busines like and efficient, not gracious and solicitous. I should mention that the Copd and the cheesecake were outstanding. There were 2+ fried oysters with the salad, and that was a little chincy, for $5 extra. Weree they fresh or canned?

    We stayed just across the street from this restaurant and decided to stop over for lunch. We were vacationing in the city so we splurged far more than normal. No lie this place is pricey, but we both had a few drinks, he had a filet and I had a lobster roll. Lobster roll...sounds food truck-ish right??? Not this place. A full 1 pound of gorgeous chunks of lobster in a sweet butter sauce. So decadent I took half of it home (along with a piece of chocolate cake!). Food was amazing and service was fantastic. Spend the $$$ You get what you pay for!

    They were short staffed on a Friday night. Service painfully slow, but they did comp our drinks to try to make up for it. The food was the biggest disappointment. It seems like they use cheaper ingredients....the jumbo lump crab was definitely not jumbo crab, although the 3 shrimp were large and good but not worth $42. The risotto was bland as was the crispy tuna sushi roll. The management tried to make things better for us and it seemed other tables too. Unfortunately, you don't get a second chance to make a first impression.......we won't be back!

    Dependable food and service. Great location. Nice to have a Manhattan spot that is reliably good, and offers a range of option, including (of course!) excellent fish. Also nice to have a place where tables and diners are not so close together to allow you to participate in other peoples' conversations! We were surprised at the poor quality of the bread offered before dinner, but otherwise a solid experience. Perhaps a bit overpriced...

    A most pleasant experience. White table cloths, an assorted menu, good wine choice by the glass and even half bottles. Matzo ball soup in a miso broth was excellent as was the halibut. The server had great personality and was helpful re dietary needs. Being next door to Carnegie Hall makes it a good pre-theater venue. A most pleasant evening!

    After more than a year visiting Redeye, the space looks great, but the food left a lot to be desired. We ordered salads and sandwiches and they took so long to arrive that the server even apologized. One sandwich order came incorrectly prepared and the lobster cobb salad was tasteless. The room was half full on a Tuesday afternoon at 12:45....I now understand why.
