Rather noisy and we were squished at a table in the back. My husband commented that his granola bowl should have been more plentiful for the price. However, my scrambled eggs with mushrooms, etc., was more than enough. Service was ok

Whenever I visit NYC, I make it a point to go to 44 & X at least once. The service is phenomenal, the food is delicious, and the ambiance is great! This past Sunday I enjoyed Ethel Mermosas and the hazelnut brioche French toast with raspberry compote and smoked Irish bacon. Superb! I recommend 44 & X when you’re in town. You’ll love it!

I live in the neighborhood and frequent this restaurant and generally love it. This time was challenging however. We went with a friend that is vegan and before sitting down, confirmed with a waiter, who confirmed with the kitchen that there were vegan options. We were told the waffles, pancakes and french toast were all vegan and that they could make avocado toast as an additional option as well. Once we sat down, ordered coffee and drinks, we learned that NOTHING was in fact Vegan but at this point it was too late to choose an alternative restaurant. At one point we were offered huevos rancheros as a vegan option? Really? Eggs? When we asked about the avocado toast option, the waiter came out with one piece of lightly toasted bread and 4 small slices of avocado. It was embarrassing especially since one of us ordered the quesadilla which was mounded with guacamole and pico di quillo. I realize that dining with vegans can be a pain but I really expected more from one of may neighborhood favorites.

My best pre theater restaurant now. Food is flavorful, fresh, properly cooked, lots of fish and meat and veggie selections. Low salt but flavorful. Very responsive staff.

While the Mediterranean salad was delicious, as usual, the spring pea with carrot soup was a decided bust. It had no pea taste whatsoever. I thought I was eating a watery gruel. Normally, I love 44 X, but this time it just didn't pass muster because of the soup.

This is still one of our favorite Far West restaurants. The eclectic menu is great fun. The bar is fabulous. And the food is really terrific. Thoughtful and creative kitchen. We love the wait staff, too. And how about cherry pie a la mode for dessert?

Came for dinner pre theater & highly recommend the warm orange dusted lobster dish but does need extra lobster in my opinion. Service was outstanding!!! Would most definitely return!!!! I’ve been here for brunch in the past...also excellent!!

Awful! Food is bland! Ordered their special of lobster bisque soup. They should have offered a grilled cheese sandwich because it was basically tomato soup. My mom ordered the pistachio crusted tilapia. It was tasteless. The waiter also came over and said “oh that fish doesn’t look great,” and then did NOTHING about it. The bland, tasteless and boring food also took over an hour to come out. This place is appealing because of the proximity to the theater district, but go have a slice of pizza instead. You will be happier.

Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was terrible. My mom ordered her pancakes with no sausage and with syrup on side. It came with the sausage and syrup on the side. When we finally found our server, more than 10 minutes after we were served and we told him, he just apologized but offered nothing to make it better. It was also difficult to find server to get drinks refilled.

The menu is extensive and very ambitious but taste wise a lot of it was bland. Beet salad very good. Caesar average; very lemony. Bf liked halibut. Soft shell crab special essentially tasteless. The air conditioning blowing on the tables on the right side in front of the windows is a real problem. Every time it kicked on I had to put on my coat and close it up to my neck.

I love this restaurant, been coming here for about 20 years. It’s very well run, has excellent food and a lovely ambiance... just why it’s been around so long. Since I no longer work in the city, I can’t get here as often as I would like, so it’s my go-to restaurant when I do make it in. I have never been disappointed and there’s always a great selection of food to choose from.

Open, airy and bright - just what you want from a brunch spot especially when it's rainy and dreary outside. Great service, tasty food that doesn't overwhelm on portion size (which is a compliment - this isn't IHOP) and the muffins that hit your table the moment you sit down are much appreciated. It is brunch and we are always starving!
