Great location for lunch before the theater. They were very willing to add two people to our group at the last minute. Food was delicious and the wait staff was personable, attentive, and very accommodating. We will be back.

Lovely looking restaurant with attentive service. Food was yummy but portions are for women. A hungry guy will be a bit disappointed. Perfect for lunch before theater.

The pre-theater menu offered delicious selections at a fair price. My petite filet mignon and roasted potatoes were delicious and perfectly portioned. When a server tipped a cup of coffee on my sister’s lap she was ridiculously forgiving and we continued to enjoy our meal. Yet I did feel the restaurant could have offered us an after dinner drink or forgiven the charges for a single glass of wine.
It is an attractive location, with pleasant but unpolished staff, and very good food. I’m sure I’ll be back.

The service was outstanding. We told the waitress that we had a 7 pm show, and she had us out of there by 6:40 which was perfect. All but one of us ordered the fixed price menu. Three of us had the salmon which was delicious. A couple of others had the pork chop which wasn't quite as good. The desserts were delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant and will return on our next visit to NYC.

I ate there after seeing a show. We made reservations so our table was ready. The server was friendly, thorough and prompt. Our food was good, even though it was a limited menu, different from the menu online. The bathrooms were not that clean and there were only two stalls on the first level, so the wait was long. I would recommend this spot for a nice bite after a show.

I don’t usually write reviews, but I want to compliment the restaurant. They accommodated our group celebrating my parents’ anniversary even when an extra family member unexpectedly showed up. The food was excellent and the staff readily accommodated food allergies in the family. Most importantly to me, they treated my parents with extra care. One maitre’d whose name I am sorry that I did not ask made a special point of offering his arm to help my mother up and down a short staircase. They also gave my parents each a complimentary glass of prosecco. Outstanding! Felt like a celebrity even though we are not!

I always enjoy the food and service at this place. A nice table or joining the crowd at the bar is fabulous. Sara was our server and she was amazing. She catered to my request of clean silverware because I dont like to use silverware that's sitting on the table matts. She remembered it was my friends birthday and brought out zeppolis as a complimentary dessert. Expect to pay more in a place like this because it's the heart of the theater district but the food is prepared deliciously. Always a great place to visit.

First dining experience at Glass House and everyone was very happy with the food and ambiance. We were a party of six ages 6 to 86. We had a 4:45pm reservation as we were eating after Frozen 2pm matinee. We were seated promptly at a round table on the 2nd level in the rear of the space. I very much liked the multi level set up of the restaurant and that the tables were nicely spaced as well. It was not difficult to have a conversation with someone on the other side of the table. The 6 year old had a burger which was huge with fries and the other entrees included salmon, roasted chicken, seafood paella, seafood spaghetti and cod. All of the entrees were deliciously prepared, excellent portions and served piping hot. The seafood entrees had a substantial amount and assortment of fresh seafood in the dish. We will definitely return. Great option for a pre or post theater meal. There are gluten- free pasta options as well. Kitchen was very accommodating to any dietary needs too.

Had the prix fixe brunch and everything was delicious! Had the arugula pear salad which the chef kindly substituted goats cheese for the blue cheese. Could have eaten a bigger portion of this and been satisfied. Avocado Toast was divine and barely had room for the bread pudding! Not cheap but good value. Service was not fast but we were not in any hurry. My only complaint was our table was so close to another table that it was sometimes hard to hear across the table. However, would highly recommend the food and would love to go back and try more from their menu!

The good experience started with the host noting the request for a table by a wall (for hearing concerns). It continued with a very thoughtful and attentive server who took time to answer questions and who made some helpful suggestions. The food was excellent (our table ordered from the prix fixe menu and had a vegetarian pasta, salmon, and pork chop -- each very good and very well-prepared. And we could hear each other -- a rarity in a New York restaurant. Plus, they got us out without a rush in plenty of time for the theater.

Love it here. The service was outstanding! We were early and got there before restaurant opened for lunch but they let us in and seated us with coffee/tea until they opened. Food was good, and they were very attentive to the fact that we had time constraint due to theatre. Could not have been better.

Excellent location in the theatre district. Very good service; the staff assisted with a last minute birthday dessert request very graciously. Very good aperol spritz! Food was nicely prepared and fresh, but could use more originality and a touch more flavor. Would definitely come here again. A great go-to if you're seeing a show.

We arrived for our 11:30 reservation prior to attending a show.
Our waiter was overwhelmed, and it appeared as though they were short staffed. Our order was taken within 15 minutes of arriving. We did not receive our entrees for 90 minutes. We had to cancel our dessert order, as there was not time. We had a 2 hour and 15 minute window for salads and sandwiches.....ample time for good service without rushing. Despite our request for information about our lunch, we did not receive anything but, "it will be out shortly". When it arrived the warm entrees were cold, and tasteless. I won't be returning.
