Only issue is when we arrived for the 8:30 reservation they asked us to order ASAP cuz the kitchen closed at 8:40. Didn’t make sense why they’d allow an 8:30 reservation then. Otherwise was great.

The restaurant got worse since the pandemic. Smaller burger, higher prices, a homeless beggar came right up to us at out table by an open window and was very aggressive (no help from staff). The worst? We just bought a Groupon and it wasn't accepted. Our waitress told us the restaurant has notified Groupon and told them to stop promoting, but it's not happening. We're out the bucks unless we contact Groupon and they refund, but we were up for oysters. Not at the prices on the menu, though. We used to love this place. We won't be back

My dad is such a picky eater but my mom and I love to be more adventurous with eating out. Eats had great options for everyone and the oysters were fantastic.

I love everything at Eats. The food is some of the best in the city, the staff are incredible and they make one of the best dirty martinis. I keep coming back here because of how much I enjoy it, can't wait to go back again!

I love oysters and mussels and what I ordered were very good . I believe my reservation was for 7:30 and so I thought it bizarre that I was told at 8:30 that they were closing! There were other people there and I hadn’t done anything wrong. This restaurant is down the street from my apartment but I certainly felt unwelcome.

I met up with a friend for a 7:30 reservation, which strangely required a credit card to hold. That’s a first for this spot. But my friend and I have always liked Eats, so it didn’t deter us. The food was great, as always. However, by 8:45, the hostess (who was otherwise lovely) asked us to finish our meal because they’re closing. They advertise closing at 10pm. We never would have gone if we knew they’d ask us to leave before dessert. We had two martinis, wine, oysters, clams, steak tartare, honey mustard chicken... we ordered well, but in the end we did not feel welcome.

Made reservations for 9:30pm we arrive and waiter says kitchen is already closed. We spend half an hour driving just to have the kitchen closed.

Saw a mouse
Oysters weren’t great
Didn’t take anything off the bill after we saw a mouse and asked for our food to go.

We treat Eats as our local! Discovered on Sunday that we had been there around 100 times since they opened. We go for brunch, lunch or dinner. Great raw oysters if that is your thing( I prefer he fried oysters). The best burgers in the neighborhood. Don't believe the hype about Melons, these are better. The prices are reasonable, not cheap but value for money. It is one of the only places you can get a perfectly cooked lamb burger. There is a burger for everyone here even vegetarians! The staff is always welcoming and helpful giving suggestions and not just trying to upsell you!

The service and drinks were good, but the burger was pretty average. I’ve definitely had a more flavorful burger for the same price or cheaper at other restaurants in the city.

Pandemic dining in winter has been extremely challenging, but Eats has it all figured out. Dining in an individual structure made us feel very safe and very secure. I thought it was romantic and intimate as well. The heating unit worked fantastically and we were actually able to remove our coats. The cocktails were awesome and the food was amazing. They have the best steak burgers in town and were cooked perfectly to order. The onion soup was off the charts. The service was efficient and the button they provided at the table to summon the waiter was a nice touch. I can’t wait to go back there.

Outdoor eating, as romantic as it is, is noisy. On this occasion the service was attentive, yet very slow. Oysters were borderline fishy and were not shucked well with little pieces of shell inside. Cauliflower pizza was ok, little overcooked. Overall, I remember this restaurant better. But I am sure they do their best under current circumstances...
