    Great dining spot. Very small cozy feel. Only negative is that the tables are so close together so it gets a bit tight. I'd recommend going with a group of 4 to get a booth.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at The Eddy. The ambiance was perfect for a nice Sunday night dinner. The service was beyond outstanding - we cannot compliment the staff enough! As cocktail lovers, we really enjoyed Mark's creations and explanations of the drinks. The food was great too! Ask for Jenna, Mark, or Kelvin - we promise it will be a great time!

    Booked a reservation for a belated birthday dinner for my boyfriend. It was absolutely perfect. We did the tasting menu with wine pairings, and the food was just great -- unique items that were delicious all around, playful in their ingredients, and beautifully presented. The wine pairings were spot on, and the restaurant itself is lovely -- a fantastic ambiance and great little space. We had a fantastic experience, and will definitely be returning to The Eddy in the future.

    The 5-course prix fixe was nothing short of incredible, offering dishes that are unavailable on the a la carte menu and just enough food to leave feeling satisfied. We had the misfortune of dining in the small restaurant space while a birthday party for 15+ people was held so I couldn't even hear myself think for half of the meal, but of course that was an anomaly that we by no means hold The Eddy against. We will most certainly be returning, and hopefully on a quieter more intimate evening.

    Review title says it all. Booked after searching Open Table for a Foodie destination and was not disappointed. Very small space and can be loud - unless you go out of your way you probably will end up conversing with an adjacent table. Service was top notch as was the tasting menu. My lamb course was a touch overdone (heat lamp?) but still tastey. Still Highly recommend The Eddy for great food and service in a tight setting.

    Loved everything about this place. Highly recommend if you've never been there to get the tasting menu. You won't be disappointed. Everything is delicious and it was more than enough food for two people. Some unique combinations make for flavors you've never tasted before. The place is small but has a cool hip vibe to it. The service was great.

    We went here for a family bday dinner and had the tasting menu. Everything was truly excellent and unique with the exception of the entrees that were nothing special (most of is had the tile fish). All other dishes were amazing and beautiful. The cocktails were as well. Mine came in an ornate tea cup with gold detail. Even the lime on my dad's coke had patterns carved in it! They also comped my glass of wine as a birthday treat. The service was top notch as well very attentive without being overly present and the owner checked in on us and walked us out when we were leaving. Loved it all!

    Lovely birthday dinner. Everything we ate was delicious and thoughtfully and inventively prepared. Portions are not large, but do not need to be since every bite is well-balanced, flavorful and satisfying. The staff is pleasantly unaffected for such highly gastromic cuisine and lovingly serves each dish. They really want you to enjoy your experience here and work conscientiously to make that happen. For example, my teenager was thrilled to be able to partake of three unique and beautifully presented "mocktails"especially made for him. As for regular cocktails, I very much enjoyed the tangy "Carrancho." The only qualm is the place is tiny and the noise level is horrendous. Millennials need to learn to use their indoor voices!

    For $58, the tasting menu is a bargain! Its about 3/4 of the whole menu which is pretty awesome since it was pretty much everything I would've ordered a la carte! It is definitely more than enough food per person and I love the format of it being family style! All the small plates we had were really amazing and the entrees were good, though I will say the small plates stuff were definitely better, as a personal preference. Everything was cooked perfect and definitely no complaints! Service was nice and not pretentious. Water was refilled constantly. No complaints but definitely worth a trip to check out!

    Went for dinner and sadly opted for the a la carte menu instead of the tasting menu since my fiancee and I didn't think we could make it through all the courses, so we watched in envy as the tables next to us had their courses brought out. What we WERE able to taste was fantastic. Complex, intriguing, bold. The drinks were fantastic and hers came in an adorable tea cup and saucer and the staff were incredible. A must go and opting for the tasting menu seems the right choice.

    We had a wonderful meal with out-of-town friends. Food was imaginative and beautifully presented. Service was attentive. Hip, foodie vibe. Some may not respond to how "precious" some of the apps and sharing plates are but it makes it special. $200 price tag for 3 courses, a groovy cocktail and one glass of wine.

    We were drawn to The Eddy by the already notorious cocktail program created by NYC veteran Kelvin Uffre, and were thoroughly impressed with his creative and complex take on classic cocktails. We chose to order the incredibly well priced five-course tasting menu, which led us through the highlights of the short but focused menu. To say the food was outstanding would be an understatement. This is some of the best food I have had at any restaurant in NYC, which is phenomenal considering The Eddy has only been open a few months. The service and atmosphere drew us in, creating a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere which further reinforced the feeling that we had stumbled on a hidden treasure. What a treat! We will be back.

    Was there with another couple who brought a child. The staff was soooo accommodating and made us feel at home, when the child got a bit cranky, they brought her a small paper fan kept her amused and also offered some menu variations that were kid friendly. Great service. The tasting menu was outstanding, tempura beef tendon? Who woulda thought that would be good? It was excellent. The gnocchi was delicious. The lamb tenderloin, perfectly done. Get the tater tots..
