Five Mile Stone
Went here for Saturday brunch and had a great time! The food was great (with lots of options), the bottomless drinks were flowing, and we had excellent service. I can't wait to go back here!
We were doing Museum Mile and wanted a fun Saturday brunch spot. This restaurant came up on several lists of brunch on the Upper East Side and my niece recommended it as well. I made reservations. We were placed at a table closest to the door on a sweltering day. There were other tables for 5 available. That said, the Bloody Mary’s were great, the lobster roll was very much enjoyed and the egg and other breakfast dishes were very good. This is not an ambitious restaurant or something that screams NY, but when you want bottomless brunch on the UES on Saturday, it fit the bill.
First course was wrong. How hard is it to make a salad correctly. Mussels half empty. Very noisy. Not worth the $ at all.
We sat on the upstairs outside seating which was very nice. One dollar oysters all day were the draw for us, though the horseradish was not the best. I had the lollipop lamp chops (appetizer) which was tender and super delicious.
My group and I had a terrific time. The noise level was already pretty high when we got there just before 7PM, but they found us a table that was a little isolated so we could all hear each other. We got in one order of drinks at Happy Hour prices, but even full priced they are reasonable for the UES and the mojitos were delicious. The waitress told us (rightly) that the two appetizers we chose - mac and cheese and spinach dip - were among their best and easy to share. Those kept us busy until the entrees arrived. The fish and chips were light and tasty and the burgers lived up to reputation. We were a little disappointed by the dessert selection, but frankly we were so stuffed it was probably just as well.
This place was great, my party expanded two times and they were still able to accommodate us.
The server was very attentive and super helpful.
Everyone was very happy with their meals, and we all agreed to come back!!
The food was absolutely delicious, the service fast.
Just a little too noisy but the experience is strongly recommended
Cute place for a date night or grabbing a bite, noise level was very loud
Sunday brunch with friends after seeing Shakespeare in the Park with friends the night before. Great friends, great service, great food and great atmosphere and a wonderful, memorable weekend.
Really enjoyed the experience. Will definitely return and bring friends!
I love this place....the food, the service and the ambiance...which is why I keep coming back.
While there wasn’t a ton of room for 15 strollers, the staff managed to accommodate us and we had a great time!
The service was excellent and the food was very good. Will be back for Happy Hour and Brunch
Always a reliable very good experience.
Food was very good and so was the service but a bit too noisy at times from the bars upstairs and downstairs..... the lamb was very well prepared.....
Good food options for a lunch with six friends on a rainy afternoon. Friendly service and although the restaurant was quite full, it was not noisy, and the music level was just right for the middle of the day. I imagine it is a lively place in the evening for a younger crowd, but we have had brunch and lunch at Five Mile and it is a hit with our "older" crowd.
Solid food, nice ambiance. Overall terrific for brunch. Truffle fries are killer.
A great neighborhood spot with a laid-back vibe, nice beer list and great service.
They have the best Bloody Mary! We usually make a reservation on open table before we go, which is a good idea. Went two days in a row this weekend because my boyfriend loves the chicken and waffles so much. Grant was our server both days and was so great! I’ve had the lobster Benedict, huevos rancheros, and chicken and waffles myself, with the chicken and waffles being my favorite. Oysters taste fresh as well!
Five Mile has a great staff and good food. It is WAY TOO LOUD. I would go back for a drink but not for another meal.
The staff told us the kitchen was closed...
Second trip for brunch, with very picky inlaws.
Our group of 5 loved all of our food. Service VERY attentive. Robbie, Deborah, and the entire staff made us feel like family.
Next time we will try lunch or dinner menu!
We'll definitely be back! Loved the Mac and cheese!!!!
Very good evening.
GREAT comfort food! Busy and loud. Mac n cheese amazing as well as onion soup
Friend got the burger that was bigger than his head. Great food if you don’t mind loud
The food and service were great.
Their chickpea burger is really good and gluten free.
Younger crowd than ideal for us but lots of energy. With that comes High decibel level and bar smell - not ideal for “dining” but good place for young crew night out.
WAY too loud!! Downstairs was live guitar but super loud and upstairs was inappropriately loud music blasting out. Don't go if you want to have ANY sort of conversation!
I walk by this place a lot, and it is always crowded and very busy. However, I just had an early brunch there with a friend and it was really peaceful. Great brunch menu, everything we had was so good.
Good Neighborhood place to grab lunch but the music is quite loud so it's hard to hear the other people at your table. The chickpea burger is excellent. The avocado toast looked pretty but the toast was burned and it had a very bland flavor.
They are a favorite of mine. I love their brunch and their pear salad, along with their salmon dinner. The calamari is crispy and light, and the drinks are always mixed just right. Upstairs is a bit loud, but if you're looking for a vibrant bar scene that's where to go.
Lovely to catch up with my friends with great food.
Came in on the early side of brunch. We were seated immediately and the waiter was friendly. We ordered a couple of egg dishes and a wrap which came to the table in no time...not necessarily a great thing for a relaxed brunch, but can't complain. The brunch came with complimentary cocktails but the waiter didn't remind us of the offer. After the food came, we had to remind him. Again, no big deal. The surf and turf poached eggs were great, only needed a little salt. We lingered and had a great time.
Used to be good ... now not so good. Something happened here ... not the least of which is the very, very, very, very loud music on a Sunday afternoon. Not enjoyable at all. Will not go again. Will not recommend to anyone. There are better bars in that area with better food. Too bad.
Service was very slow. Our service was very nice.
I come to Five Mile Stone regularly for happy hour and on weekends. This was my first experience for brunch and it was disappointing. The meal came with a complimentary cocktail, so i ordered a mimosa and it was served in an extremely small glass compared to other nearby venues that include a brunch cocktail with a meal. My card also ended up being charged twice. The waitress did not inform me she overcharged my card. I only realized it when I checked my bank account later that night. I had to call the restaurant the next day to confirm the overcharge was being refunded to my account. I'll continue to visit solely for happy hour or weekend drinks for friends, but no plans to have future brunch meals here. I also wouldn't recommend friends to have brunch here either.
Came here for small plates and drinks with a few different people by the bar area. It was exactly what I was looking for: I fluid space where my clients could come and go as they needed to in order to create a nice dynamic.
