Good generic food, but nothing exceptional. I have had some items on the menu in the past that were very good....but it is in the neighborhood, convenient and very reasonable.
I'm a frequent diner at East of Eighth. The food is good and moderately-priced. The service is excellent: friendly but not overly-friendly, courteous, competent. It's a great neighborhood restaurant and bar but good for those who don't live in Chelsea. A fun place!
Great food. Great atmosphere. Service was OK. Had to remind the waiter a couple of times for my glass of water. Other than that, service was pretty good.
Have eaten here with friends and family - several times. It was always a comfortable setting with excellent martinis and delicious food. Was able to talk with guests without having to shout to be heard and the service staff was always courteous and attentive. Very pleasant dining experience.
We had never dined in the upstairs dining room (only in the garden area) and were pleasantly surprised by the relaxed environment, the pleasant and super friendly service and the delicious lunch that we shared. We will definitely go back again. Thanks Gloria! You are a fantastic server!
Excellent Christmas dinner. Dinning room was packed and often tight squeeze but good casual dining experience.
East of Eighth is my favorite neighborhood restaurant in Chelsea--good food, good prices, congenial and helpful staff, not too noisy and always generous. It is also next door to the movie theaters.
Quiet setting for a get-together with a now NY-based cousin. Innovative menu, and especially good Seasonal Harvest Plate (vegetarian). Reasonably priced for NYC.
The wait staff were excellent and very patient as we waited for a late friend.
We had a good table for speaking and catching -up...there was no pressure to hurry and the food was prepared to our individual tastes . Great location near SVA and movie complex next door...and lovely garden downstairs in the mild weather.
Pre theater pricing is an exceptional bargain. Movie and dinner date in the neighborhood is so convenient. food is good, service and price is great.
