    This is a dingy and tired place with chipped and scarred tables. Too bad the place is so awful because the food is not that bad.

    This place is kind of like an upscale coffee shop. Food was very good and they checked for vaccination cards which was nice to see. French fries were really good. Nice and crispy and salty. My friends burger looked better than my grilled chicken sandwich. It was good, I just wish it was a chicken fillet as opposed to pieces of chicken. But I enjoyed it.

    Love the salmon burger at Eats. more places should have salmon burgers! Also the kale/pear salad. Loved the food, which was great. Unfortunately the table I sat at was adjacent to the door and between patrons coming in and out, and waitstaff going out to serve people outside I was very cold for most of the dinner. Hopefully they put up the typical wintertime barrier around their entrance sometime soon or stop using that table! I would definitely go to Eats and will be back. Just won't sit at table next to entry!

    A nice lunch before heading off to the Met. Our server was valiant and as attentive as he could be given the number of patrons he was attending to. The food was good. The price was good. What else need be said?

    The food was generally average, although the French fries were delicious. Tuna tartare very lumpy and lacked any real flavor.. Service was excellent considering there were only two waitresses for the entire restaurant inside and out. The outside eating space was bare bones, with dirt- filled planters and no screen to separate a gritty Third Avenue. It is a challenge making the best out of having to sit outside on a noisy street but there could be way more effort to make that outdoor space more inviting and appealing.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.
