    You could say that this is a 'themed' restaurant, but that would be doing The Heath a grave injustice. However, everything within is a cohesive experience: decor, menu, ambiance, LIVE JAZZ ENSEMBLE, and actors who make you feel welcome to a night out from the past -and not Medieval Times. On the spendy side, but portions are very generous. Servers won't judge you if you just want to come in alone and order a glass of wine and a few delicious sides, but they are also capable of serving large groups a fully plated A-level experience. Though connected to the off-broadway hit "Sleep No More," you don't have to have seen the show to enjoy your dining experience: The Heath is a stand-alone standout. They also are vegan and allergy friendly.

    The Heath was such a great place to celebrate a special occasion or go on a date. The ambiance was great, it had low lighting, music was just the right volume, service was attentive but not overbearing, cocktails were different and innovative, food was delicious, and the whole experience was like stepping back in time. We had the beef and ale pie which was amazing! Nutella icebox tart for dessert yum! I'd recommend The Heath to anyone who wants a cool and unique night out. Oh and check out Gallow Green for a drink afterwards. The rooftop bar has a magical setting.

    The ambience of The Health is fun! There are costumed characters walking around the dining room who engage with the diners to set the roaring twenties theme. The live music was an unexpected treat! The food was good; especially the pork chops and sticky toffee pudding dessert!

    My date and I felt like we were walking onto a 1930's James Bond movie set at an underground bar. The duck tartine was smokey and had good texture. The dark n stormy's were a little too sugary for my taste. We then had the steak with acorn squash and potatoes. Both excellent. I order my steak medium rare and it came out rare but I still did not complain because it was so fresh. The band was great and played well in the background. It had the noise level of a coffee shop but had potential to get everyone dancing. I would recommend taking someone here you care about-not a first date. The waitress was a little unsavory but everyone has a crumby day once in a while so we didn't hold it against her or the restaurant.

    We were celebrating a friend's birthday. I chose this restaurant because the reviews were very good. We were transported via elevator to the 6th floor into a 30's supper club with jazz band & smoky lighting. The staff, most are actors in the "Sleep No More" play being performed on the premises. After we ordered, the "owner" Kathryn approached us and entered us into a raffle. Women were dressed in period gowns and men in white tux jackets. The food; Seafood pie, Benne Cod(fish & chips) & desserts, one of which was won in the raffle-Banoffee pie & apple bread pudding were excellent. The Wagyu flatiron steak was a bit chewy. Altogether, we had a memorable evening and can't wait to go back.

    An evening at The Heath effectively suspends your life outside its doors. Ambience and food balanced comfortably with service that maintains the flow through period jazz, song and setting. The Mandalay bar session added cinematic showtime to polish off a delightful visit. Who knows, maybe on your visit there will be cabaret in the restaurant and burlesque in the bar. The Heath never fails to serve up a delightful surprise.

    I've never had an experience like this, ever. The Heath has incredible food, exquisite cocktails, outstanding atmosphere, terrific jazz (which doesn't dominate the atmosphere), and all at the same time it's like you're in some incredible 1940s film -- where you're warmly welcomed into a delightful storyline. There's nothing in the world like this place. Hail the wolves <3

    Very attractive, unique atmosphere, romantic, vibrant, smart. Too many reserved tables at the Gallow Green Bar so that there was no place to sit for customers waiting for dinner reservations. the Wait staff was excellent, accommodating, and interesting. Food is terrific. Overall price about $120/person for dinner all in.

    I came here on a recommendation from a friend who routinely enjoys the Sleep No More production next door. I'm not much for the interactive theatre, but she recommended that I try out the Heath and the Gallow Green next door. While I was down in New York City for a business trip, I made it a point to stop in. Being only a party of one, it was difficult for me to get a table here, but the bar ably handled my drink and dining needs excellently. I recommend any drink off the menu, and I can also vouch for the lamb entree and bread pudding dessert. I will definitely be bringing my date here the next time I return to New York City, and maybe we'll even dress to the theme.

    This was my SO's first time in NYC and I wanted to take him somewhere unique, and that's certainly what we got! The decor and ambience of the restaurant is quintessential 1920's jazz club (with live band). Actors from "Sleep No More" circled the room in their white-tuxedos and exquisite gowns (accessorized with martini glasses) looking for "old friends." When we took our seats we were invited to participate in a lottery drawing while we looked at our menu's. We started with a cheese plate accented with dried apple slices and honey. My gin and tonic was on point!I would highly recommend one of their pies (I chose beef & ale), it was warm with a flaky crust and hearty pieces of beef. Spectacular and beyond memorable. The Heath is a MUST!

    Amazing night w visiting guests! Mysterious, smokey Jazz Bar ambience, superb service, talented Singer/Band, 1930s Glamour, all perfection! We felt immersed in a mysterious dream! I wouldn't expect less from The Sleep No More/McKittrick Hotel. Thanks 4 a night of mystery, suspense, delicious food, & 1930s glamour! Dishes: the beef pie was succulent, scallops tasty & delicate, light 4 dieters, the pork chop w peaches, tasted of summer, bread was served w a honey-pepper butter! Bill for the food & experience was reasonable, considering the quality food, jazz band & chanteuse, and friendly service. Of note, I recommend to request that they engage you in the dream/play. If u get lucky & get a call or envelope, answer it, stay in character :)

    Overall a fantastic night out at the Heath, great service, phenomenal music. The *only* thing that killed it for us was both my wife and I ordered the lamb breast which while having a wonderful flavor, was essentially the tiniest portion of meat surrounded by a pile of fat. Nearly inedible.

    Got to the hotel early to check out the rooftop bar which was beautiful but way too crowded. Retreated downstairs to the bar at the Heath. Very nice vibe and great drinks. We were seated at the exact time of our reservation. The jazz band was fabulous and not too loud, allowing for easy conversation. The wait staff was very responsive. Two staff members approached the table and asked us to put our names on a playing card for a dessert raffle. We had fun talking with them. Dinner was absolutely fabulous. Started by splitting a salad which was great. Then had the Sea Scallops and Flatiron steak. Both were absolutely delicious. Dessert was the sticky toffee cake accompanied by cappuccino...both winners. Can't wait to go back!

    Dinner AS theater. Strong on ambience--a 20's (or maybe 30's, if I had to nail the period) speakeasy supperclub, surprisingly good food, an odd kind of New American mixed with Old Brit. Sounds clunky, but on the plate it works. Nice oysters first, then the fish pie (like a Shepherd's pie reimagined with scallops and other seafood)-- delicious. The owners, a glamorous and theatrical young couple in gown and dinner jacket--she's a knockout, and a talented flirt--cruise and chat up the patrons. Very good straight ahead jazz from the 20's and 30's--the other night just a great solo guitarist at first, then a quartet. Perfectly atmospheric--you hear everything but it's not obtrusive. I would go back again and again.

    Great entertainment and ambience. The actors, musicians, design make it a totally fun night. The service from waitstaff, however, was incredibly slow. It was difficult to ask for anything. They also up-charged us from the prices listed on the menu. And we couldn't tell them because once the cheque was dropped it was impossible to grab a waiter again.

    The Heath is a 1930s-esque restaurant with amazing food and an atmosphere that is worth a trip to 10th ave. The service was exceptional. The owners (actually actors who are part of the atmosphere) give you personal attention, and if you are lucky there is even more to the evening. I highly recommend it.

    We had dinner here prior to "Sleep No More." The show and the restaurant are intertwined, and the immersive theater of "SNM" began in the restaurant! The food was truly imaginative & excellent -- better than we expected -- but I think The Heath is best experienced as a prelude to "SNM."

    Went here for dinner. The terrine platter was good. The cod entree was a bit bland but the fries that came with it too salty. The nutella icebox tart was delicious but the serving too big. I normally do not have complaints about large portion sizes but it was too rich. Service was excellent. The place was a lot of fun but is not good for conversation as there is a band.

    The Heath is an extension of Sleep No More, complete with the danger that you may be stolen from your party. The earlier house band is calm jazz, perfect for while you talk, the house band post 11pm is fantastic, but loud and better for dancing. The hosts are elegant rabble rousers. Despite some of our party being almost 30 min late, they held our table and didn't shoo us out. I started the night with an absinthe based "gin and tonic" that was balanced and delicious. Our server was fantastic, helping me navigate the menu for the best gluten/dairy free choices. The ham/artichoke app was tasty, my scallops in ramp broth with fiddlehead ferns was delicious and thoughtful, my friend's pork was incredible. B/w ambiance and food, great night.

    We came to the restaurant on a recommendation to hear a good jazz band and that delivered- the food was adequate, the service fine and in character to the restaurant. The drinks were less than expected- small, runny and unsatisfying. We were rushed as our entrees came before we finished our starters. We had them held and they were brought again before we were ready -totally uncool and had to have them sent back a second time. By that time the chicken was overcooked -our waiter did offer an apology -hope thsi s ithe exception and not the rule there
