Delicious cocktails and fun
Delicious cocktails and fun dinner with my husband. It was super crowded but we still managed to find a seat at the bar and then had an awesome corner table with a great view of all the action. Highly recommend - will be back!

This was my second visit to
This was my second visit to Schillers and again I wasn't disappointed. Lovely atmosphere and great food. The moules frites were amazing and my friend enjoyed her linguine special.

Great night with good food
We were a group of six. Had a great meal. Food was good. Great atmosphere, really good drinks and a hidden hot spot in our case...

Arrived on time for our reservation
Arrived on time for our reservation and was immediately greeted by a very friendly hostess who knew exactly what kind of table I had requested. She offered me a choice of two and we sat down. Shortly after our first round of drinks were delivered, she came by and offered us a larger table in a great location and even helped us move our glasses, etc. She came by the table several times to check on us. I thanked her profusely for taking such good care of us.
Our waitress was also exceptional. Very friendly and energetic. The support staff in the restaurant were friendly and helpful, as well.
Note: This is a great place to drink. The food is OK. Fills up quickly. VERY LOUD. Great Service.
REPEAT: VERY LOUD

I made a reservation for lunch
I made a reservation for lunch and got a call the morning of, informing me that a private party would be kicking us out a bit early. Worried my dining partner would have an unpleasant first experience at such a great restaurant, I reluctantly kept the reservation. Glad I did! The food, as expected, was wonderful, and our server was so gracious

Memorable & tasty
A wonderfully high-spirited restaurant with outstanding service and a friendly approach. The crew at Schiller's really know how to create a hot spot for the neighborhood as well as tourists and other guests.

This was my second time here. great, informal, funky atmosphere, warm and accommodating service - both on the phone and by the waitstaff and great brunch menu and execution.

Always one of the places I
Always one of the places I have to take my out-of-town guests, Especially those from Portland (to make them feel at home).

Fantastic food, too much noise
The food was terrific, across the board, and the service was impeccable. The noise level is a bit out of control, partly because people shout even when they're a foot away from one another, and partly because the walls are covered in subway tile, so of course sound bounces everywhere. I will certainly go back, though I would probably be inclined to go at an off hour, so that conversation is easier.

Fantastic Father's Day dinner. Schiller's is the best. Will be returning soon, most definitely.

This is my second time coming here for Sunday brunch. They have the best french toast I've ever had and the Eggs Benedict are perfection.

Loved that the venue was spacious and relaxed - no need to squeeze into a tiny space. One of our party was running late and the host was very accommodating and the server did not rush us, which was nice. The music was energetic and loud - but not too loud - and there was a nice buzz of conversation in the air. Nice portions of food and great coffee.

We had an amazing meal at Schiller's.Food was very fresh and delicious.Our waiter was so friendly and funny and made our meal even more enjoyable!!

A go-to fave
I've been to Schiller's many times, and it remains one of my favourites, especially when someone is in town. The food is decent, but I take them there more for the ambiance, as it has a great feel to it. I had the moules frites this time, and my only complaint is that they didn't provide any bread for sopping up the yummy broth. Other than that, it was delicious. Would definitely return and recommend.

Good not great
Very good but very noisy, different volumes of music

Best place ever for Brunch
Excellent Brunch! Bought my mom for the first time and shes already asking when we can come back. Love Joe he is fabulous and French toast and garlic shrimp are to die for.

Schiller's is a Hoot
Went there for my birthday. We were in NYC on holidays with the kids. Excellent place for grown-ups to have martinis and kids to have mac and cheese!

Always a good time!
I always have a good time here, it's a must when in NY for me.

Schiller's was fab as usual.
Schiller's was fab as usual. Had a great table near the window on a balmy night. The food was super and one of the best burgers I have ever had. Watermelon salad was just fantastic, what can I say. We LOVE it!

Great food & drinks
We went here for a special family occasion after a day at the US Open. When we arrived i was concerned about the noise level of the restaurant. The hostess was considerate and found us a nice table where we could enjoy our dinner conversation. Everything we ordered, from the deviled eggs to the freshly made gazpacho to the steak sandwich and grilled salmon was well prepared and delicious. My Country Time vodka cocktail with lemonade and muddled strawberries was refreshing and not overly sweet. Everyone else enjoyed their wine selections. We will be returning to Schillers, its a great lower east side establishment with good vibes, great food and friendly service.

Cheap Great Wine
This is my second time here but it has been a few years and my goodness, the place has been invaded by all the 20 and 30-somethings. Because of that, it was loud, boisterous and if you are over 50 you will feel a bit out of place with Nirvana playing at ear-splitting levels. The waitstaff tended to be a little clueless (this look of ingenue). But I love the wine list that is very reasonable. The food was fabulous. I'll come back maybe on days when it is a little quieter.

Vibrant brunch spot - you should definitely book! People were queuing down the street for a table!
The food was simple and good - lots of choice on the menu.
Make a great bloody mary (if you like it hot!)/
Service was attentive and we were not rushed even though there was a line outside.

lower east side chow time
six years later - this place still has IT. Lunch is quiet here in midweek, my fave time to go.
mac and cheese - primo!

Great For Brunch
We made reservations and rushed to get there only to find out we were the only ones there. From reading the reviews I thought there would be a line. I guess the city that never sleeps, sleeps past 10 on Saturdays. Polite service. Great music. I had a chocolate filled croissant, herb omelet with cheese, and a side of bacon. Everything was very good. Nothing knocked my socks off, but very good. I had higher hopes for the Balthazar croissant. My wife had the Huevos Rancheros. This was excellent. She also ordered a doughnut which hadn't come in yet from the bakery. We thought it was going to be extra fresh and warm, but it was just ok. Worth getting if you've never had a homemade doughnut, but nothing crazy. Great coffee from Stumptown.

Great start to a night out
Buzzing venue with diners and drinkers sharing space. Quick turnover but not rushed in any way. Good staff across the board. Menu was broad and interesting. Food was very good. Would highly recommend the sliders to get you start. Everything around us looked as good as ours tasted and a seriously easy to you wine menu that leaves a relaxed vibe to an upbeat place. Worth a visit.

fun - uncomplicated - noisy
There were six of us and we all loved to be here. uncomplicated, simple food but very good.
Noise level was to the max, space to the minimum... it was good we were sitting so close, that we could hear one another.
service was friendly and efficient.
some of us were running the marathon the next day, so we had a few special wishes which were fulfilled without a problem.
we'll be back for sure!

the scene was loud and relaxing at the same time. I tried the recommended garlic shrimp was very tasty but small. the devil eggs were also very good. Reminded me of having them at my grandma's during the holidays. Have added devil eggs to this year's thanksgiving appetizer list. The best of all was the bridesmaid drink. very tasty interesting with cucumber slices and flavor. very cool. had three of them. don't tell. lol.

Fit right in
Eating at Schiller's is kind of like finding a place you have been going to forever. It was that comfortable.
The food is delish, great service, nice servers, great interior, cool bar, great vibe.
We tried several things and they were all prepared well, brought out in a timely manner.
We found that the place had really good energy. The other diners, staff, hostess all seemed to be in good spirits
and it reflected in an awesome dining experience.

Good food, nice atmosphere
A warm spot in the Lower East Side, I'd recommend it.
