I just adore 44&X. The food is always great and tasty. The chilean sea bass was divine. The ambience is sexy and the staff is great. I dine here often for business meetings and dates. I highly recommend it for everyone.

The food was excellent. My pistachio crusted Tilapia was served piping hot, and was truly delicious. The service was excellent. The roasted beet terrine starter is wonderful. So is the apple pie and the chocolate cake we had that was light and mousse-like. A lively, festive place to share a meal.

Our party of 4 (myself, my husband, and our adult son and his girlfriend) really loved this place. It was our first time there and we notably enjoyed absolutely everything we ordered! Usually, restaurants don't seem so consistently spectacular to us. Also, I found our waiter to be very charming and friendly ... not too cloying. He has a great smile!

Second visit to 44 & X, disappointed in service this time. We seem to have been ignored by the server and he lacked any real enthusiasm for his restaurant. We had been so WOW'ed by our service last December that I had hoped that it would be another such occasion. The food was excellent and the value very good but I would be much more cautious taking another couple there again. Very noisy and difficult to move through the place. All that being said it is well worth a visits.

I had heard wonderful things about 44 & X and although I loved the space and the location, I found the food just OK. I had a burger which was overcooked and served on a tiny English Muffin (they make Sandwich Size ones, which I have had at other restaurants which would have been much better.) It was also so tall that one bite and everything fell off the burger onto the plate so I had to eat it with a knife and fork. The french fries were overcooked and had very little flavor. My husbands steak was tough, and had the same issue with the fries. Our friends had the meatloaf, which they loved and fish which also received high marks. I will probably try the restaurant again, as the location is convenient for pre-theatre eating, but I was very disappointed to spend so much money on dinner and walk away thinking the food was so unremarkable.

we've been to the restaurant many, many times and have always enjoyed good service.
The service on this occasion was not up to par. The waiter seemed to be rushing us out from the moment we sat down and even failed to notify us that there were specials that night. The only way we learned of the specials was when he read them to the table next to ours. By that time we had already placed our orders.
I'm hoping this was an aberration.

Felt like we were being rushed...but that could be because the table to the right of us were “kindly” told that their table was needed after they finished eating , and the people to the left of us were asked to move over a table because their table was needed to push together with another table. Not to mention the large group behind us that was stared down ( one woman from that party did complain but the manager didn’t seem to care.) I understand that they like to try to get their patrons out on time for the shows but it was obvious that all that was wanted from us was to eat, pay and leave.

4 X 4 for dinner only. I have previously eaten dinner here before so decided to try the brunch. I found it underwhelming. While dinner wait staff are professional the brunch staff seems to untrained. Our waiter couldn't answer basic questions like what came with the omelet. Food and portions are only okay and the tables are jammed so closely next to each other that people can hardy move. It was our joke with the surrounding tables that the individuals closest to the wall were trapped until they all finished and could move in unison.
My advice is that they do a nice dinner but skip the brunch as too many better options exist.
