This was an accidental choice place to eat. It was advertised on our theater ticket and on open table so we tried it. It was suprisingly better than we hoped. Great bar, good wine list and better than expected food. Our server was attentive and did a great job of getting us out in one hour and not feeling rushed. We would go back.
Went for restaurant week and wasn't impressed. Let me start by saying it doesn't take much to impress me when it comes to food. I had the pepper steak which was a 4 dollar upcharge and it wasn't a good cut of meat at all. I don't know how they charge an extra 4 dollars for a cut of meat like that. It was fatty and over salted. The mash potatoes came out cold and lumpy. The bread they gave with the meal was the only good part and don't try asking for more. You wont get it. I also had the tomato soup which was watery and wasn't even hot. The key lime pie was not key lime pie either. It was a custard with lime shavings on top. There is your key lime. This restaurant is basically a draw to theatre goers who want to feel special cause they had "dinner and show" For people who actually want a quality meal to enjoy this is not the place. NYC has so many better restaurants. I'm still wondering why I chose to eat here. Seriously, its not worth it. Try something different.
Went here pre-theater for an early dinner. Not my first choice, but my sister being a Vegan really limited options. They have a bunch of vegi friendly choices as well as suff for meat lovers like myself. Reasonable prices for where it is. Nice looking place. Muscles were excellent, as were other starters. Steak was good. Short ribs just meh. Dessert very good. Overall descent place. Probably wouldn't go back, but not unhappy with my experience..
Great staff. Our server was wonderful. Food was good. We have been to E & E before and will return again.
Everything was delicious! The French onion soup is to die for and my steak was cooked perfectly! The mashed potatoes were buttery and delicious. Service is top notch as well. We will definitely be back soon!
My friends and I ate at E&E prior to seeing the Book of Mormon. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and the cocktails were amazing. And since they knew we were going to the show across the street, they got us out of there in plenty of time to get seated.
We actually went back for post-show drinks and sat at the bar (and had more of the Parmesan truffle fries). It was wonderful. If you're going to the Eugene O'Neill Theater -- check this place out. It's convenient, delicious, and worth every penny.
Excellent steaks - we got the New York Strip steaks and they were cooked to perfection. The staff was incredibly friendly. It was a perfect dining experience. I highly recommend the E&E Grill.
We had never been to E&E Grill before, but found this gem on the Wicked.com/partners website and made a reservation before seeing the play. It was FANTASTIC. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was fast, and our server made it such a great experience. She was personable, funny and knowledgeable about the menu items - but wasn't overly obtrusive. We would definitely make it a point to go back here when we're in town!!
Our family had tickets to see "The Book of Mormon" and I selected E&E Grill House based on its proximity to the theater (directly across the street) and because of the many excellent reviews we read online. While the ambiance was fine and the service was very good, our meals were decidedly underwhelming and outrageously overpriced for what we got. Four out of our party of five ordered the $48 rib eye which came with one side, either mashed potatoes or sauteed spinach. The steaks that were served were the kind you expect to get when you order steak and eggs at a diner. They were extremely thin - maybe 1/4 " thick and they had quite a bit of gristle. Twice (possibly three times) a different manager came over to ask how everything was. As our friends were footing the bill for dinner we just said "fine, thank you" as we didn't want to be impolite, but I wanted to scream, "These steaks are TERRIBLE!!" I would never recommend this restaurant and I was embarrassed that I was the one responsible for choosing it. I shudder to think how much the bill was. I have no problem paying $48 for a steak but I expect to be of a much better quality. Only one person at our table finished their steak.
Since this is about two minutes from the hotel we usually stay at, and the food is so good, we keep coming back for more. I had the filet which was done to perfection. My friend tried the mixed grill which was also great. They knew we were celebrating my birthday and made it special with a piece of birthday cake. I would always recommend this restaurant
The food was overall amazing. The crab cakes and accompanying salad were awesome, as well as the chopped salad. The oysters were great and our waitress was polite and quick. The Parmesan truffle fries were an affordable gem that went home on the train with us.
We went here for brunch before seeing Wicked. The grilled cheese and tomatoe fondue was absolutely amazing!! Service was great, staff very friendly and accomadating. Very clean and cozy. Will definitely be back in the spring for brunch.
I usually do not leave reviews but this time it was a must. Our server was HORRIBLE!!! She didn't introduce herself, barely took time to check on us to make sure we were ok, service was sooooo slow, and it took forever for her to come take additional drink orders. By the end of the night we even had a different waitress for reasons that weren't explained to us. The food was mediocre not worth the price. I could have gone to Logan's roadhouse and been much more satisfied. I will never go back nor will I recommend the place to friends. The hostess did recommend a beautiful bar to us just down the street called Lillie's, best part of the night.
We were staying at the attached hotel so chose E&E Grill for the ease. The food was OK, nothing special, especially for the price.
We were a little early so waited at the bar and had a drink. The bartender was very friendly and knew his beer and drinks. Tables are a little close together. Food selection not huge, but food was very good. Portions were fair. Service very friendly and even though very busy was always on top of things. We would definitely go back.
Large portions of hearty, good, comfort food (an appetizer of grilled cheese sandwich strips with tomato soup for example) and one of the best burgers I've had in a while, done exactly the way I asked for it.
Waitress was very pleasant and efficient. Mussel appetizer was delicious and fine for sharing. Tuna was good but the portion was too large for one person, as was the sautéed spinach with which it came. The presentation was uninspired. Next time I wouldn't order it unless I was sharing it with another person. The cod which a nearby table had looked great! I heard it was delicious as well. It's not a restaurant that I would go out of my way for.
This restaurant caters to the Broadway theatre district crowd. They are very sensitive to your time demands to ensure that you eat and get out in time to make curtain call. But, the food also is very good, and management and staff are very attentive.
Restaurant traffic was light for a Sunday evening before MLK Jr Holiday.
Kale salad was delicious. Wife's Hanger steak (rare) and my bone-in Rib-Eye (medium-rare) were cooked to perfection. (Grill sauce, upscale A-1, eh)
Dessert: Key Lime pie was excellent.
Service was good, but again the restaurant's traffic was light (only about 1/3 full)
More contemporary atmosphere for a steak house than your typical up-scale steak house ( i.e. Morton's, del Frisco's etc.)
We've dined here several times prior to a show as the restaurant is centrally located in the theatre district. The staff is always very welcoming and the service and food are good but certainly not inexpensive if that's a concern for you. Our party enjoyed the strip steak, jumbo shrimp, and smoked pork chop entrees served with sautéed spinach or truffle fries - all were pleased with their choices.
Wanted place to catch a meal before a show. Very relaxing and the food was great. Good menu choices and the staff was the perfect amount of friendly...not too chatty but friendly and helpful when asked questions. They seemed very proud of their Broadway shows and not a bit annoyed by the tourists! How rare!
Good service, but the food was just okay and over priced. I had used the previous reviews to choose this restaurant and was really disappointed that the food wasn't better. My husband and I were prepared to pay the price having reviewed the menu ahead of time. Since the food was just okay, the high cost of the food was completely unjustified. I would not go back to this restaurant and could not recommend it to anyone.
The place was nice enough, food good and we were seated right away. However I was disappointed because we were told there was no prefix menu that day, only brunch. On their website it didn't say they anything about the prefixe only on weekdays. That was one of the reasons we choose it. Also, we had to wait a good 15 minutes for someone to come and take our drink order. Never saw the waitress again for followup, another drink or to get our check.
Not sure if I would recommend.
Enjoyed lunch here recently with visitors who found it recommended on the internet when buying theatre tickets. Well priced and the grilled salmon salad was excellent.
We had tickets to a Broadway Show. This restaurant was right across the street so we decided to have dinner there. The food was excellent. We let them know we had theater tickets and they hurried to make sure we made it. It was so good that we went back for drinks with a friend after the show. Great place. Fantastic food. Fun drinks.
The servers were very attentive, the food was delicious and everyone was so accommodating. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
We were in the city for an 8pm show, our reservations were for 6:15, all 4 of us ordered from the prix fixe menu, our apps and drinks came out very quick but then proceeded to wait for almost an hour before our entries came out, our waitress was told about 30 minutes in that we had a show to catch. End result, we demanded our bill and dessert at the same time, took a few bites of our dessert, paid our bill, and rushed out of there with 10 minutes to spare. I would go back for the food and aambianc, the service wasn't bad just not good for having to get to a show.
We booked the restaurant for new years eve several months in advance, looking for an off the menu meal on NYE. on arrival however we were told it was a fixed menu, and a very expensive one at that. We made the most of it, but the staff were clearly trying to get us out quickly, which was uncomfortable. Overall, the meal felt rushed for the cost and we would not be likely to return with many better restaurants close by.
We were seated quickly on a busy holiday week evening. Our waiter was terrific - efficient and cheerful. We ordered the mussels in wine sauce as an appetizer which was ok. Our table enjoyed the beet salad as well. The biscuits served were really delicious - light and fluffy. Filet mignon was like butter. The burger was really good - perfectly cooked. Wouldn't recommend the hanger steak which was sinewy and chewy in parts - although the flavor was good.
Un menu entrée/plat/dessert à 39 $ à très bon rapport qualité/prix.
Viande excellente, burger excellent, desserts... rien à redire
Very mediocre food, except for the vegetable side dishes which were very good. No atmosphere and place needs to be painted. Small portions for entrees and not up to basic restaurant standards.
We booked in advance to come here for Christmas day lunch and it was fantastic.
Being from the UK, our Christmas menu often differs from the US menus offered elsewhere, but this menu was very close.
We found the restaurant was quite empty when we arrived (3pm) and this was a surprise, but pleasant as it was quieter. Eventually, more people came in for drinks and food and the atmosphere got livelier.
The service was fantastic and I would definitely recommend it!
Limited menu but we knew that as it was xmas day. Lamb was excellent. Waited 15 mins for a drink and champagne we wanted wasnt cold. We went into the bar afterwards which was the highlight
Attentive, attractive, friendly staff; an oasis in the Theater District. A joy to actually have a conversation over dinner. My food was average and portion small, but will return to this retreat from the maddening crowd.
We took a pre-theater dinner. Our server asked if we were seeing a show, and was attentive in getting us out on time. The atmosphere was great - we had a quiet corner for the two of us. My only issue was with the food itself. I had the filet mignon and it was nothing to write home about. I asked for it medium, and received it medium rare. I've had much better elsewhere, as it was bland and a little tough in parts. My partner had the Flat Iron steak, which was cooked perfectly. Would come back, but would not get any sort of steak again.
We went here to eat lunch before watching "Wicked" on a Sunday in December. Not to crowded. Food was served immediately. Rib eye steak and salmon was delicious. Gershwin theater only a block away. Only complaint being was the soda was flat. Otherwise, would recommend to anyone.
We split two appetizers- your baby beet salad was very tasty, and the grilled cheese/tomato fondue was perfectly grilled. Both filets came prepared exactly as requested (medium rare/well done), and with sides! Included! the only caveat- expand your wine list...otherwise, a very enjoyable meal.
I booked this restaurant because of it's proximity to Book of Mormon (right across the street) and generally good reviews online. Overall my experience exceeded expectations. The ambience is awesome, on the romantic side of casual especially if you get a booth. The wait staff is attentive but there's no sense of hurry - the pace of the meal was absolutely perfect, we had time to enjoy our cocktails before the arrival of bread, then time before the appetizer, with the meal and dessert equally well paced. It was almost magical - the waitress showed up exactly when needed, each plate arrived exactly at the right time. And the food was delicious - simple, beautifully plated, focus on the natural flavors of the meats complimented with excellent sauces. Definitely recommend, whether for a casual group or a romantic dinner.
As this restaurant was directly across the street to Book of Morman it was perfect for us. Service excellent, food was decent.
Four of us met up here prior to a Broadway matinee. There was a large party in the back area, so it was quite loud. Our servers were very friendly and helpful; they didn't rush us, took a picture for us, etc.
The menu is small but the food is great. It was a brunch menu (no omelettes!), but most of the food items were lunch-based rather than breakfast-based. Two of us had a steak sandwich; the meat was tender and the multi grain bread was very tasty. One salmon sandwich which was also good. One burger with bacon, onions, and cheese. It was a little rarer than I like my medium-cooked burgers, but it was good.
The key lime pie three of us had for dessert was wonderful, as was the bread pudding ordered by the 4th person.
The proximity to Broadway makes this a good find. They have an extensive cocktail list, including some Broadway show-themed drinks, which sounded really good.
