The food was very good, but small portions for those prices. Also the place felt crowded.

My first time, but won't be my last
This place is great! Really had a great time there. Waitstaff attentive and listened to every need! Food was amazing! From the drinks to the main course...Chocolate martini lovers, UNITE! Succulent grilled shrimp in garlic, but not conventional by any means... They have this steak with fig sauce that is to DIE for! Was my first time, but won't be my last! We were too full to even consider dessert, but the menu was quite tempting! Nicely placed on a somewhat quiet, accessible part of town!

Great food, convenient location
We went to Eats following the St Pats parade, its location close to the 4/5/6 subway line was very convenient both from the end point of the parade and our return to Grand Central. We arrived quite a bit earlier than our reservation time, and the friendly staff accommodated our party immediately. The seating is right in the bar area so it was noisy, but it was a holiday and as groups went on their way the noise died down. The menu offered a variety of appetizers and meals, and the service was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our experience at Eats and would definitely return.

A simple Sunday brunch. We didn't get the prix-fixe, but ordered a la carte. The breakfast burrito was huge and tasty, hamburgers were excellent. The huevos rancheros were low on beans, and not the best ever, but good. Service was excellent. Tables are close together here, and if you are seated by the wall your chair will be right against the wall.

If you like kale, their kale
If you like kale, their kale with pear salad, cheese, almonds, and raisins is delicious! Then we both ordered the Arctic char with quinoa. Although the fish was tasty, the portion was too small for the price they charge and the quinoa was bland. The dessert we ordered was sugary and not recommended. There was supposed to be custard inside but it was mostly made of the pastry puff shell and a bit soggy. The service was slow.

Easts was great! I had a perfect martini, Happy Hour oysters at $1 a pop, and a very good hamburger - all that they specialize in. Our waitress Hazel was excellent - informative and accommodating. The live jazz was a nice touch. We will definitely return to this lively place.

I think the best item on their menu is the Kale salad with pear, sliced almonds and pecorino cheese. I wouldn't eat there without ordering it. Tonight I had a delicious meal. I ordered their steakburger with the kale salad and it was soooo good. Can't wait to go back and get the same thing!

Our group (6 in total) was 45 minutes early for our 8:30 reservation on a Wednesday night. EATS was packed! However, the staff was gracious, the bartender (who we found out later is also an owner) bought us a round on the house, and a table was created for us with a minimal wait. (We sat down around 8:10.) At first we were put off by the crowd, but the lovely reception we received from the staff made us want to stay. Our waitress, Jennifer, really likes her job. She knew the food, was friendly, and had great timing. We ordered every dessert, the salmon burger rocked, the brussel sprouts were yummy, great moule & frites appetizer (enough to share with 6 people). The owner (Mike) is old school - he knows how to run a resturant.

I'm stuck on their Kale with pear salad and their steakburgers are very flavorful. Had both tonight. Our waitress tonight was very sweet and friendly.

Nice Atmosphere & Friendly Staff
My boyfriend and I went this weekend. I had a living social voucher I purchased months ago and the experience was wonderful. I would highly recommend checking this place put. The oysters were amazing and so was the shrimp cocktail. My boyfriend enjoyed the clams. Try the mango skinny Martinis.

If you like Kale, you have to try their kale salad with pears, pecorino chesse, slivered almonds and some raisins thrown in. I cannot go there and not have it. I've been enjoying their steak burgers as well. Service is friendly and was good tonight.

Their kale salads and burgers
Their kale salads and burgers are great. It's their kale salads that bring me back, time after time.

Loved this place! The kale/pear/alm
Loved this place! The kale/pear/almond salad is wonderful, as commented upon by so many Open Table diners. The Pan-seared Artic Char and the brick Cornish Hen were also great. Loved the couscous that came with the Char as well as all the cool vegetables that accompanied the Cornish Hen. We will be back & happy to have this place in our neighborhood.

Eats was great although they didnt have our opentable reservation and almost didnt seat us. i had to show our reservation on my opentable app.

Enjoyed dinner here several times. Superior preparations of simple delicious food at very good value.

I was drinking sparkling rose. So, I didn't get into the martinis. But, they look pretty special.
Food is really very good. Kitchen seems into preparing a relatively few things and doing them very well. Pleasant ambiance. Go. You will like it.
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food. Bad service
The menu is diverse. Great if you're having dinner with people who's tastes vary. The food is good. Very good even. The service is terrible. I've eaten here a few times and its always bad. But I keep going back because the food is good (and I live 2 blocks away)

Oysters and Charm
Came for the Oysters. 2 dozen and 2 martinis.....server Hazel was great drinks arrived quickly and were cold and tasty. Oysters not far behind. Perfectly shucked. We ordered another 2 dozen and pair of drinks. Was a great place to wind down the week and start the weekend. Will be back.
Only negative.....was one of the first really hot nights.....the open windows needed more.....saw that they were trying to adjust the AC I am sure it will be solved when I next return. Over all great spot!

A creature of habit, I once gain had their Kale pear salad which I wouldn't go without. Delicious! Also had the steak burger. :-)

Very good, but too pricey
Food was very good, particularly kale pear salad, ceviche and steak burger. Oysters were fresh, however contained way too much debris (pulverized shells?). Live music was pleasant, though made conversation difficult. Prices, however, were way too high. This place is set up and feels like a diner. Our meal: two martinis, two glasses of wine, dozen oysters, two apps, a burger and a bowl of spaghetti, came out to $200. Not willing to pay that for that sort of casual meal, in that sort of casual, diner-like environment.

Good brunch with great service
Booked a reservation here for 6 adults and 2 babies. The restaurant was more than accommodating and handled our requests promptly and with a smile. IMO, prices were average to even below average for the area.

Brunch and a trip to the Whitney
This restaurant is perfectly situated to meet before visiting the Whitney Museum. The week-end brunch menu is very diversified and includes juice, coffee, and a pastry basket as well as the main dish. They also have a good selection of salads, burgers, etc. I would definitely eat here again.

Just what we were looking for!
Walking around NYC we came upon a number of restaurants that all seemed too much... too formal, too expensive, you know... it was a warm shorts and sweats day. We happened upon this place and thought it was perfect. Small but with a bar that seated us for a drink as we caught the US Open, then we were able to reserve and dine there too. My burger was good... smothered in carmelized onions and my hubby enjoyed the arctic char. The wine was good and there was even live music. I recommend Eats as a great low key spot for everyday dining.

Great oysters at great prices
Even though we live on the UWS, we cross the great divide to go to Eats for a wonderful date, slurping down blue points and excellent white wine at incredible prices., along with a paper cone of awesome Belgian "frites" The service is so nice, too. Love it.

No matter what I get, I always order the kale pear salad along with it. Their Brussels sprouts look good too. Our waitress, a new one tonight, was very sweet and attentive. I hope they keep her.

Their burgers were particularly good tonight as was their kale pear salad. The manager reminded me it might be because I missed a week and forgot how good they are.

Tried Eats for brunch on Marathon Sunday but was craving a burger so we tried the beef and salmon burgers, and they were really really good. The beef one came with avocado, mushrooms and cheese - and fries of course - and was cooked just right. The salmon one was accompanied by a salad and tartar sauce. All around delicious, plus the atmosphere was very relaxed/enjoyable and both the hostess and our waiter were really great. Look forward to going back!

TERRIFIC hamburger and smiling friendly waitress! We'll be back.

This place was packed tonight! I think their most popular dish is their steak burger which Is what I usually get here. Also, highly recommended is their kale pear salad. Many people seem to use group ons here for their oysters.

Fab local burger joint with an excellent martini list.

My parents are in town and it's always a bit of a project to find a great restaurant that's not too expensive and who's menu options are not too "fancy" or "out there" for them. Eats was the perfect find! My parents were able to find great options they really enjoyed while my brother and I could indulge a little bit of the foodie in us - everyone was happy! We started with the kale cesear (how can you go wrong!) I had the Leek Ash Cod and it was fantastic, the fish was perfectly done and the flavors in the preparation were a great complement. If you're looking for a great neighborhood, intimate atmosphere with a wide menu of options this is a great place.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Eats offers a wide range of intriguing dinner options. From Oysters to Steak Tar Tar to French Onion Soup, it all was amazingly prepared and presented.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another delicious meal!
Went to Eats Saturday night and once again it was great! Sat at the bar and had all appetizers this time - Steak Tartar, Pumpkin Gnocchi and Asian Fried Oysters - all perfect!
