Our waiter Rob was extremely attentive and quick with a smile. We had a variety of apps including lettuce wraps, The Joe sushi roll and gnocchi. The Shea's show special dinner was also given a try and everything was very good! Definitely a great night!!

I took my 9 year old great niece to a special dinner before a Broadway play. We enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was pleasant and quiet. The food was delicious and the staff was accommodating and wonderful. Our server Emily was great. My great niece will remember this xperience for a long time. I will go back.

The food was out of this world. The service was great! The timing was efficient. We will definitely be coming back before shows at Shea's from now on, and their all you can eat sushi on Thursday nights!

We have been to Encore before the theater on previous occasions, and it's very convenient, the service is generally good, and we've enjoyed the food. This time, we decided to try the "All You Can Eat Sushi" special on Thursday night. There were a number of sushi rolls on the menu that sounded good, and we ordered an assortment. They arrived at the table promptly, some of them so promptly that it seemed like they must have been pre-made instead of being made-to-order. Each of the six rolls we ordered consisted of mainly rice, and not much of the other ingredients, and they all felt dried out, again suggesting that they had been made ahead. Pretty disappointing for a restaurant that emphasizes steak, seafood, and sushi. We'll be back, but we'll pass on the sushi.

We ate prior to going to Shea's. Their menu for this is perfect as all ordering is done at once, there is a good flow of courses and makes time management easy. The servers were friendly and on top of things. All in all a great experience.

Great place for before or after the theatre. Food was good, prices were reasonable. Short walk, just across the street.
