Great food, great atmosphere
Surface level, I love the decor of this place. Very fresh and clean. But more importantly, the food is really solid. We live nearby and it's definitely our new go-to spot when we need a little night out.

Reliable & Friendly, Casual winner
Though limited, the menu will has items to tickle most palates – this time our party shared the crab cakes to start, and I thoroughly enjoyed the fish and chips main course. The fish, fresh and moist and flakey in a nice crunchy batter was served on a bed of delicious mushy peas with brilliant “chips”! Chunks of potato about the size of a double thick domino tile, perfect for dipping in to ketchup, mayo, tartar sauce or malt vinegar. Prices of both food and beers/wines were very reasonable, and the service though a little slow was competent and cheerful.

We tried The Ellington on
We tried The Ellington on a whim for lunch on a Friday. The menu looked intriguing and it seems like a cute little place. To our wonderful surprise, it was so much more. The food was fantastic! My husband had the fish & chips. The fish was perfectly battered lightly and was not at all greasy. I had the Mediterranean Vegetable Plate, which was more of a stuffed pepper over sautéed spinach. It was absolutely delicious. The perfect place for a casual dining experience with food that will also please. We will be back!

great birthday brunch
I was lucky enough to book a table for 16 the day before my birthday and they were so accommodating everyone thoroughly enjoy their food. I ordered the sweet potato salad which was delicious but small so I had no trouble adding pancakes which were light fluffyand great we even had. More people come later and they accomadated them as well. and then to top it off they're pumpkin cheesecake was to die for. Great time great birthday thanks ellington

The Ellington had just what I was looking for for my friend's birthday: affordable prices; good variety of sandwiches, burgers, salads, and entrees; and an amazing environment that felt so homey in the city but still classy. I got the Bison burger and not only was it delicious, they were very accommodating to my gluten-free requests: no bun and substituted my side for broccoli rabe.

Nice job on Thanksgiving Dinner!
Not wanting to cook or travel that far from home with my mom, the Ellington was a wonderful choice and we left with very few regrets. The appetizer and entree were fantastic and well-portioned; we couldn't have asked for better options. The only misstep was the dessert option which left A LOT to be desired. The two options, pumpkin pie or oreo cheesecake, both had serious flaws. The top of the pie crust was almost burnt and visually unappealing, and the filling was rather blah as well. The top, darker layer of chocolate on the oreo cheesecake was way too bitter and not because it was supposed to be dark chocolate (I LOVE dark chocolate). After a fabulous meal, the dessert misstep was noticeable but I would still recommend the Ellington!

Wonderful for Thanksgiving!
Perfect for our family thanksgiving meal while visiting our daughter at NYU. It's a cab or long subway ride from Greenwich Village, but for the price and quality of the meal it was great. Loved getting to see another part of the city, too. If you're near Columbia is just a 10 minute walk to get here. The servers and setting created a homey feel for our Thanksgiving celebration!

My brother and I live far from family (a 24 hour drive!) so flights home were spent on Christmas. We wanted to do something special: NYC was the perfect ticket. We had two important things on our list: Macy's Parade and the perfect place to have our Thanksgiving meal. We found it at The Ellington. The price was perfect and the meal looked outstanding! We dressed up for our special evening and even treated ourselves to a cab ride there. The staff was amazing and SO polite! They made us feel so warm and at home. The food was delectable (I wanted to lick the bowl of carrot and ginger soup!). Thank you for making our Thanksgiving one to always remember. It is my personal agenda to tell everyone I know about your exquisite restaurant! Amy & John
