I enjoy coming here every once in a while. The menu is full of goodies for brunch or dinner. The staff is always there to answer questions and ensures that everything is to satisfaction. The German host is also grinning in a fetching way. Go and enjoy!

Food was congealed and cold by the time it was brought to our table. We weren’t permitted to make a reservation for 1p - only 12:30 or 1:30- but we were seated late for our 12:30p reservation regardless. Server needed to be reminded to bring us several requested items such as drinks and condiments

I rated the way I did on food because my meal was very good (filet) but my partner who got the duck dish found it had lots of gristle through it and for the price not worth it. Server didn’t follow up with us to ask about our meal and shame on us we didn’t flag him down to let him know. I would give it a second try based on the steak dish.

Restaurant was comfortable and easy to hold a conversation. Service was great. Servers were very responsive and helpful to making selections and following up on requests. Food took a bit of time to prepare but was perfectly prepared (both seafood and meat). Flavors were amazing. Would definitely return.

Everything was delicious. From the drinks to desserts! Our lobster taco had big chunks of lobster delicious guacamole and enough for us to share. Each of our main courses were delicious too. My husband had the duck and I had the halibut. Those vegetables were so good I could’ve had a meal of just them. The dessert apparently was very popular as the tables on both sides had them too. And rightfully so, a banana split was over the top!

I love this restaurant! I try to dine here whenever I'm in NY for theater. Always a culinary delight, and a food adventure. This time I had a new vegetable (I forget the name) which is a hybrid of cauliflower and broccoli. It was beautiful and delicious. I had the branzino special, all my favorite ingredients, farro, fish, and lots of veggies. The space is elegant but unpretentious. The staff is professional and committed to providing a great experience. Bravo!

44 & X is always one of my favorite places. The welcoming yet still cool ambiance plus consistently fantastic food makes it one of my consistent go to places for the past 20 years. This visit's highlight was the perfectly cooked halibut. It's one of my favorite fish dishes but so often is overcooked- not this time. The salads were filled with fresh vegetables and light and tasty dressings. Beer and wine selection are just right.
We had a great conversation with the owner on the menu and history of the restaurant- a lot has changed on 10th Ave over the years.
Whether it's pre or post theater or for a great night out, it's hard to beat 44 & X.

Mediocre pre theater dinner spot. I thought the duck was overpriced and it did not cut "like butter" like the waiter said it would.

We went for Saturday brunch and the herbed scrambled eggs and cheese grits were outstanding. My husband had the hazelnut brioche French toast and loved it as well. It was quite crowded as brunch tends to be but we were seated on our reservation time and served quickly. The restaurant is light and airy but they do pack you in so we were quite close to the folks on either side. Even with that though we would definitely go back.

Expensive, but very high quality food and service. I had braised short ribs that were falling apart and deliciously flavored on a bed of basil mashed potatoes. We saw between parts 1 and 2 of Harry Potter play and it worked perfectly in terms of wak from theatre and speed of service.

44 & X was recommended by a friend and I will do the same. The staff was accommodating and delightful. The decor pleasant and the food excellent. The rosemary chicken was done to perfection and the pistachio crusted tilapia was excellent. Don’t forget dessert! We enjoyed the cherry pie, a little piece of heaven at the corner of 44 & 10 in Hell’s Kitchen! Enjoy!

Good experience that could be elevated to a very good or great. We waited more than 30 mins after the showed up for our reservation. The hostess did offer us a round mimosa on the house after we got to the table so that redeemed the experience. Note I have eaten here before and the service was much better.

We were seated immediately upon arrival. The food was fantastic! A little pricey, but it's to be expected in this neighborhood. The little muffins are killer. I had the silver dollar pancakes, and they were absolutely delicious. Cocktails are very fun too.
