East of Eighth Restaurant - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
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!
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!
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.
We wanted to try this restaurant for a while based on reviews online. what a disappointment!
the food were served cold and loaded with salt, the servers are indifferent and strange attitude.
The price were reasonable, but we prefer good food instead. Do not recommend.
We had an incident with the manager. A person who was clearing the table spilled hummus on two of the guests. The wait staff were quick to bring club soda and napkins to clean off the clothes. Our friend who had the most damage, asked if $10 could be taken off the bill for dry cleaning costs. The manager refused and instead gave us a card with his name on it to submit a drycleaning bill. This was not good customer service- the manager even said that perhaps this was OUR fault because we were helping the servers clear the table! If we could not get some credit, the next best thing would have been a note from the maître-d to us, assuring that the dry cleaners' bill would be reimbursed, acknowledging that the staff inadvertently spilled food on a customer.
We selected this restaurant based on location and Yelp reviews. Our party of 6 (business team) was seated in the back patio area next to some equipment that made noise, like being near a giant white noise machine. All but one enjoyed their entree, the one who didn't eats vegetarian and I think the restaurant lacks a lot of options for him.
The Server could use some experience in how to interact with customers. Even though I told the hostess we had a show reservation so we only had an hour or so, the server was slow to come to our table. He also was unaware of what beers were no longer available. He made little effort to engage with us even when taking the food orders. And when asked his opinion his answer was "good" to everything.
Always enjoy this comfortable neighborhood place. There is a terrific varied menu and great prix fixe. However, my favorite is the regular menu item of duck quesadillas. Service is attentive and food is good and reasonably priced. Sit in the garden if weather permits.
The food was absolutely delicious but the service was extremely slow...we were there for almost two hours and checked on maybe twice. We never got refills on anything and had to hunt someone down to pay the bill so that we could go to the event we were scheduled to go to. Overall, food amazing, service pretty poor.
The ambience of an outdoor garden was tastefully done.
There were overhead heaters when there is a chill in the air.
The service was professional
The waiter was very attentive
The food was good, nice size portions and well worth the money
I would definitely recommend and plan on returning when in neighborhood
The room was VERY dark. We were put upstairs for our party of six, which was fine. But we were also seated in an empty dining room next to two women who were not happy with our volume and we could hear their every word too. There was plenty of room to put the people who wanted a private conversation...wny next to a big party with a reservation for six?
My family was pleased with their meals overall, but I was very disappointed with my Duck Quesadilla (the reason I thought of coming to eat here). If there was cheese on it (as described), it was microscopic (I couldn't taste it). The dish was absolutely bland and tasteless. Doesn't something
Three of us dined. We'd all been there before and been pleased. On this occasion, all three of us found our entrees to be terrible. None of us could finish, which was a rarity in my case. We ordered from the pre-theater menu and had the lamb burger (meat was awful), zucchini spaghetti, and seasonal harvest platter. Maybe the chef was having a bad night.
