Perfect Post-Broadway Dinner Spot
What an enjoyable experience. We reserved a table for six to enjoy a meal after a Sunday matinee on Broadway. I would best describe the dishes as elegantly crafted home-cooking, with thoughtfully constructed and creative flavor profiles. Everyone at the table ordered something different (from burgers to pasta to salads, to beef short ribs), and everyone gave the meal an enthusiastic "two thumbs-up." All the better when delivered by friendly and knowledgeable staff, who provided excellent service.

Not too busy at lunch
Went with a friend today and was surprised that I was actually able to hear my conversation. Sometimes at night, Eatery is so loud, but hey this is NYC. Great meal today and as always, had the mac n jack with chicken. SO GOOD.

The Eatery is the perfect spot for a Sunday brunch. Great menu that will appeal to even the most difficult eater. Service is excellent and the food very tasty. We definitely will make a return visit in the near future.

Good food, friendly, but not overly attentive service from waiter. However the manager did check on us.

Went with a party of 4 and not a single dinner was disappointed with their meal. Everything we eat was truly fantastic. Would definately go back there again.

go for the food not the ambience
Fair price for: tasty food, good service, menu with something for everyone - and diner genre ambience. Great theater district choice for dinner or lunch - if you don't want to spend big bucks but want very good food, simply prepared and - character/atmosphere/setting/design are not important concerns.

We loved our recent visit to Eatery for Brunch on a Saturday morning. The green eggs & ham is fabulous. Everything was very tasty and well presented. I would like to return some day for dinner.

Live this. Really good food. The gluten free options are incredible. Fries are gluten free...my daughter was very happy to hear.

The food is really good and the waiters are very nice ! I'll definitely return sometimes !

We had just a few hours in the city while breezing through on a road trip. Our two kiddos, 6 and 10, handled the walk from Times Square to Eatery well - it really wasn't that long of a walk and well worth getting out of the constant chaos in Times Square.
Food was delicious, plenty for the kids to choose from. Adult drinks were a must after Toys R Us and the m&m shop - and they were just right.
would def recommend.

Eatery came highly recommended
I asked a friend that lives in the city, where to go to eat before a show on W48th St. Two places were named, one I already knew and loved, and Eatery. We were not disappointed. Staff was friendly and attentive, good choice of food, and, the food was very good.
So, I pass on the recommendation. I have only good things to say about it.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went here to enjoy a dinner with a few friends. We sat outside, and everybody enjoyed what they had. I would definitely go back.

Excellent food and cocktails
Excellent food and cocktails and great service-- perfect for a low key pre-theater meal!

Great healthy option food
Tasty stuff and kind to the waistline. Second time here. Great place.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
good for a quick lunch
most of the weekday customers are work lunches and/or matinee crowd and the service is used to that, which is wonderful. They don't rush you if you opt to linger.
I wish they'd vary the lunch specials though as they're the same daily which can be annoying for regular diners.

The bar offers you a great variety of cocktails and they are very well prepared.
The menu also offers you a great variety of dishes, like, meat, fish, pork and pasta.= and the price is very reasonable. The food is excellent.
The only bad thing was the service. We had all the time to look for your waiter and when you couldn't find him ,we asked something for another waiter that said, you have to wait for your waiter. It was very disappointed. Also the food took a little bit longer to get to the table.

We met at eatery last weekend for a family get together. This was the 4th time I've eaten there; it has always been fabulous. The mac & cheese is to die for! Location is perfect.... service was excellent.....

Eatery was a great find. We
Eatery was a great find. We were in NYC for the day and wanted a place to meet with some family who live there. Picked Eatery purely based on OpenTable recommendations and it lived up to it ratings. Great twist on American classics like Meatloaf and Mac and Cheese with a flare. Great appetizers and sides.
Walking distance from Times Square. Very reasonably priced - 7 people with some wine a mix if appetizers, entries, and sides, two hours at the table - 3 bills with tip. Nice. Even out NYC family was impressed we found such a gem.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been here before and enjoyed it both times. Interesting selection for all the picky eaters at the table - good quality. Will be back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food for a reasonable price
We had a large group eating prior to attending a show and the staff was both friendly and speedy at accommodating us. The food is well portioned and well priced in the over-priced city of NYC. I recommend it to many for lunch or dinner. They had a fun cocktail section and a nice selection on wine and beer as well.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM

was not disappointed. new to the neighborhood and came here for brunch, service was good, food was good, vibe was good, menu offered good options that are little different, overall will like to go back.

Fun Hells Kitchen spot for groups
Service was very friendly & attentive; food was great... better than expected. I had the house-made ravioli with chicken, slivered almonds, and some delicious grilled apparatus as a side dish. Another guy in our group had the meatloaf, which he also liked very much.
Overall a great find for our small (4 of us) group of guys unfamiliar with the area. Would recommend to anyone!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal
Been to the Eatery on almost every visit I make to NYC. The food is always delicious and the cocktails are always some of the best I've had in the city. The meatloaf and the mac & cheese are the best you'll find anywhere. Cheeseburger receive rave reviews as well. Thank you!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorites!!!
One of my favorite restaurants in Hells Kitchen! Been there many times and always consistant!!!!
Great food and fun staff!!!

Good for lunch
Had lunch here on a weekday, mellow vibe, good selection of food and drinks. Generous portions for the price, would definitely go back. The sangria tasted fine, didn't think it was very strong but it hit later.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Mac & Cheese (Jack)
The waiter was down to earth and professional. The mac and jack with bacon was absolutely amazing! I will go to this place again 100%
10/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
A fresh take on comfort food
There were eight of us on a Sunday early evening... teens and adults. The place is compact, lively and has something for everyone on the menu (including veg, vegan, gf, etc.). The dishes were well prepared, the service was friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was lively but you could still have a conversation. We ordered fairly simple fare (hummus plate, some kind of mac n cheese, some meat, fish, etc.)... all was abundant. Especially great -- the roasted vegetables.
I'd definitely go back for good casual dining.

Great service and food
Had the house burger. It was excellent. Service was outstanding. Michael was above and beyond perfect.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I found Eatery while searching for gluten free-friendly restaurants. My boyfriends' parents were visiting and his mom adheres to a fairly strict diet, so sometimes we're limited on places to go. Luckily, Eatery had a very flexible menu with plenty of delicious options for those of us with less regulated diets. My boyfriends' mom and I both ordered salads that were well worth the $15 price. Very fresh, copious amounts of high quality ingredients (including perfect grilled chicken breast). My boyfriends' dad got the sirloin burger and claimed it was one of the best he'd ever had. My boyfriend got the meatloaf, which tasted a lot like my mom's meatloaf (a very good thing) but made better with a ricotta cream sauce and balsamic drizzle.

Good Brunch Spot
I was looking for a good brunch place on the Westside that wasn't too pricey. I read a review online that described it as "celeb-infused." Didn't see any celebs, but the service was great, and my breakfast sliders were good. They had a nice selection, and the lunch/dinner items looked promising. I would go back.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Easy spot to dine
Freda is nice, convienant. A bit pricy but expected.

Terrific 9th Ave corner spot!
My wife and I enjoyed this eclectic and diverse restaurant (diners & food!) for a late after-theater bite. Our waitperson was friendly and knowledgeable, the room had an energetic vibe and all seemed to be enjoying themselves. I had a tasty chicken vegetable soup (with hunks of fresh chicken you had to cut with a knife), and empanadas with an avocado and tomatillo dipping sauce. My wife enjoyed her Adobe salad with chicken (we eat light at that time of night!). The house Mac and cheese topped with crispy onion strings seemed a favorite by looking at the tables next to us. The manager politely checked on us a couple times. Nice spot...we'll be going back to the Eatery.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time, i have enjoyed delivery and lunch but Brunch was greeeeat! Staff was very knowldgable and food was fantastic. If your in the area check them out you will not be disappointed.

We love it here- come for
We love it here- come for brunch each time in NYC, easy, fast service from super-nice waiters and managers, highlights are E-Benne on latke, pulled pork tostada with fried eggs and the stuffed French toast. It's a no-brainer. You could go farther afield and pay more for even fancier, but you'd be hard pressed to find brunch this tasty and well-priced. Recommend reservations.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great neighborhood place
My friends and I were looking for a good place for brunch before leaving NYC for home and we found the Eatery. The food was very good and there were a number of interesting selections. The space is a bit cramped and it gets rather loud as the restaurant fills with diners, but it wasn't bad. We were very happy that we got there on the early side (9:15), because by 10:00 the place was mostly full. It seems like a popular place with locals. Prices were what we expected for Midtown. Service was good, though nothing stood out in our memory.

Bright Spot on Ninth Avenue
Met a friend whom I hadn't seen in quite awhile at Eatery this week so were happy that the noise level was conducive for chatting. Our server was just the right amount of friendly and suggested the special spiced pear martini which was delicious. Started with the seared tuna / portabello dish which was a little spicier than I thought but very tasty. Dinner was the grilled salmon salad which was cooked perfectly and wasn't laden with a heavy dressing. Just right.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
With a grand variety of menu options, Eatery provides you with a pleasing food experience.

Wonderful - Two Nights in a Row
The food and scotch selections were great. I had such a great experience the first night there, I took a friend the very next night. The special (salmon) was delicious as were the sides. The wait staff were attentive and even the manager checked-in with our table both nights. I will return!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've been coming to the Eatery for many years. It's always dependably good and often inspiring. For lunch I had the Marinated Tofu Stir Fry never expecting what I got. This was simply fabulous: crisp tofu, black rice, a duck taste-alike. Creative and delicious. Kudos to the chef!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good for lunch,,,,,,,unless.......
This place is really good for lunch, unless you want to have a conversation. The food & service is great. But, on the day we were there, the music was just too loud.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Something for everyone!
We are a group of co-workers who gather about once a month. It's always difficult to find a place to agree on for the diverse eaters and personalities. I have been to the Eatery several times and recommended it to the skeptic group.
Everyone loved the experience. The food was excellent . . . with something for everyone. We had a ball trying the specialty and holiday drinks. Our waiter (Nick) was friendly and provided the perfect balance of attentiveness. The atmosphere was energetic but also welcoming.
We've already planned our return.

Lovely dinner following a
Lovely dinner following a Sunday theater matinee. Excellent specialty drinks, and delicious homemade rice chips with just the right amount of salty and sweet. Mac & cheese and homemade chicken and roasted eggplant ravioli were outstanding, and Mahi-Mahi tacos and were also very good. We polished off the cheesecake with Oreo crumble crust. Restaurant was spacious enough that we were able to converse comfortably at the table. All in all a very enjoyable meal.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
A relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff and great food. I had the stuffed chicken breast in dill sauce and yogurt. A fine mix of tastes. I am hoping to make it back soon for the tuna. The hummus was great too. On he light side, my wife had the winter salad and my son a burger. Both enjoyed their selection.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my 79 yr old aunt to the Eatery and she loved it! I've eaten there several times and the food has always been wonderful. One suggerstion.... bring back the risotto side dish! The staff was knowledgable and friendly... we had great service.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Trip to NY
Took Mom to NYC for the first time and chose this place as her breakfast stop after having been there once prior. The food is really good and delicious. Would definitely recommend the stuffed french toast or green eggs n ham.

Great and Reliable HK Favorite
Recently took some out of town guests. With our reservation we were promptly seated. The drinks were creative and tasty. The staff was all very professional and friendly. And the food was delicious. Well presented, nice portions, and plenty of choices. My guests enjoyed the experience so much, we went back a second time at the end of their visit (with an even larger group), and again everything was smooth and enjoyable.
