I've been here many times and it's a great lunch spot. Good food options and friendly staff. For some reason this time the food was incredibly delayed. But the server and manager both came over and apologized and said they were on top of it and also took a portion of the bill off for us. Very well handled.

The food was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive and prompt. It was a bit crowded so the noise level made it difficult to hear at times. Overall it was a great experience.

The food and service were excellent. The only drawback for me and my friends was the noise level--way too loud--which doesn't seem to bother the millenials, compared to older adults like us. We enjoy restaurants that serve great food and an environment where one can carry on a conversation without having to shout--a combination which is hard to find these days.

The avocado toast is one of the better versions the city has to offer. The crispy chicken sandwich is delicious and the perfect portion size. The bar is a great place to wait for your table. The service, from the hostess to the buser, was wonderful.

Excellent east mid-town brunch spot. Table was ready when we arrived, menu selections included all the standards, bloody Mary’s came quickly and were just right. My wife and I had eggs Benedict and they hit all the right notes: eggs were hot, just enough ham, hollandaise tasted real and wasn’t overly rich. The home fried potatoes were the best I have had, bar none. Perfectly cooked, with nice bits of tasty pepper and none of the garlic powder that everyone else’s seems to use. We would happily return.

Lexington Brass is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The menu contains so many wonderful things- you really can’t make a bad choice!! I have a special affinity for their preparation of avocado toast- the absolute best!! Service is always friendly and prompt. This is a busy place, day and night- for obvious reasons!!

The service was probably one of the worst services I have ever had. They are understaffed and may have came to the table twice. Steak was cold. Apps were good. Place was cute for a casual dining experience.

We had dinner here while visiting NYC. The food was delicious however the service was a little slow. Also, it’s mostly a bar with table jammed against the front wall so it’s very noisy. Overall- we loved the food but everything else was just ok. It’s fine for a casual night out but if you want to be relaxed and talk, I would suggest a more formal setting.

Easy to get to from the 6 train. Nice atmosphere which is typical when part of a hotel. Went for breakfast and the selection was decent. Typical NY hotel (and/or hotel) prices. We were able to enjoy the time spent there without interruption. The server didn't seem to bothered by the fact that my fork looked as though someone left their salad on it. And, now that I think about it, I don't even know if we had the same person take our order, bring our food, give us our check, and take payment. Payment took a bit of time which extended our stay beyond what was needed but at least we weren't being rushed out of there. The bathrooms are in some sort of sub-basement (which really has nothing to do with the restaurant itself) making it a bit of an adventure when you really have to go.
