A terrific restaurant near theaters. Food is very good. Friendly staff. Attractive restaurant with three levels. Tables are spaced well, not noisy and they never rush you. A go to place whenever I am in the area.

Efficient friendly service. Delicious food. We had the duck and a fish dish both of which were savory and cooked to perfection. Manager checked in with us as to our satisfaction. Would definitely recommend.

A dependable pre-theater spot. Food and service always professional. Does get crowded and noisy, but that's part of the fun. One disappointment: my OpenTable reservation did not show up in their records. They did seat us despite this error.

Beautiful, clean and close to theater. Friendly staff . Nicely priced menu for upscale food😊. Does have stairs so be aware of this. It wasn't a problem for us. Call if you need an elevator to see if they have one.

This was our second time coming to Glass House. It has become part of our annual NYC trip. The food is great but the drinks are lacking. We ordered a round of special martinis and they were mediocre. At $14 per, I expect a great drink, filled to the top, not half way, and to look and taste great. I ordered the pomegranate martini and it tasted like a cosmo, and not a good one. My friend did the jalapeño martini and liked it. We ordered a second round, mine being a lemon drop martini and hers being the jalapeño. Hers was awful and mine tasted like lemonade with a giant wedge of seed filled lemon, one you would see hanging off an unsweetened ice tea glass. I sent mine back after letting my bartender friend taste it. He agreed that it tasted like lemonade without vodka. I watched the waiter go to the bar tenders and laugh about it, and then the bartender grabbed the well vodka, and topped off my drink. When it came back, we tasted it again and it was still awful and the waiter didn’t seem to care. He brought our check with the drinks still on the bill and I told him I refused to pay for such horrible drinks, especially because they were still sitting there untouched. The manager was very kind and took them off the bill which should have been done by the waiter who knew we were not happy. The bottom line is, if you want to ask premium prices for your drinks, hire a mixologist who knows how to make them well.

We were fortunate and had second floor window seating, so we could watch NYC go by in a warm and comfortable space. Our server was excellent, just the correct combination of taking care of you and not pestering you. My friend and I both had the Pre Fixe Brunch, ordering the same appetizer and entrée, starting with a beautifully chilled martini. The soup of the day, Tomato Basil was warm, hearty and flavorful. (I would have loved to have it with a beautiful grilled cheese!). Entrée was the Salmon over Couscous risotto. Every thing was beautifully executed and well seasoned, the fresh roasted corn in the couscous was a star! It was a much needed taste of summer in mid-January northeast. The chocolate cake I had was tasty, server warm (actually, hot) with gelato. My friend has the Bread Pudding which had a decidedly French toast vibe. It was quite tasty as well. The serving sizes were perfect, we had a three course meal that left us feeling satisfied but not overly full.

As an aside, the table beside us ordered a varies of salads - all of them looked spectacular.

Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Service was horrible. We sat for 10minutes waiting to be served. Server who I think was really a busboy said shift change. Shift change at 8 pm on Saturday night ?
No one checked on us during any course. Water glasses never filled.

When I expressed discontent the waiter said sorry. Really a shame because location and food were good. Someone should be fired.

Unfortunately, my potatoes were under cooked. They replaced them, however it was about half hour later since we couldn't seem to find our waitress who did not check on us at all until we flagged her down so we were nearly done eating by that time. Two others in attendance really enjoyed their meal.

Pros: Great food and vibe. Pre theater menu is good value. Cons: Service was slow and our server was not warm or fuzzy. At 5:00pm they were “sold out” of one of the Vegan options.
Overall we were pleased and would return and recommend.

This is an excellent spot for after theater with good food at good prices. Drinks are good too. My husband uses a walker, and I had forgotten since our previous visit that the main dining room is up a flight of stairs, so we were seated in a booth in the bar area. It was lively but not super noisy and the waitstaff could not have been nicer.

Food was delicious, but the service was completely indifferent. We waited a long time just for water, and refills? Had to ask repeatedly and never got them. Server took forever just to come to our table and take our orders. Seems a shame.

The drinks we ordered came quickly and were good. Bread was put on the table a little late but was warm. I ordered a special, quiche which came with a salad. I expected a small round quiche. Instead I got a slice of quiche, and it was not hot and slightly dry. The salad was tasty. My friend's sandwich was good but on the smaller size. Wait staff was friendly. Service was a little slow and it wasn't crowded. We did not get dessert as we were going to a show.

Half of my party showed up about a half hour early, and the staff sat them without any hesitation and without asking them to wait until the rest of the party showed up (which is rarely found in NYC). They even asked if they had a preference as to where they sat, and were able to give them a beautiful window seat. The cocktails were so delicious, and the food was amazing. I completely cleaned my plate! We were very impressed by the staff and the ambiance itself. Very professional, very delicious, very well done. I can’t wait to go again.

We came here on a Tuesday night before a show. Horrible service. We were seated earlier than our reservation (the only positive) but did not receive water for 15 minutes and that was after asking a bus boy. We didn’t have a waiter take our order for drinks for 20 minutes and then another waiter didn’t take our food order for 30 minutes. The waiter seemed inconvenienced by taking out order and only told us the specials when we asked. He said they were trying to get the 7pm show tables out and we told him we had 8pm tickets (this was at 7). The food came out relatively quickly considering the slow pace of starting the meal. Unfortunately, the crab cake was under seasoned and mediocre. The risotto was over cooked and lacked seasoning and the paella was unremarkable. Considering this is a pre theater restaurant, we would have expected any attention at the beginning of the meal. Considering the positive reviews, we were very surprised with the negative experience. Maybe it was a bad night, but it was our only experience and we will not be going back.
