This felt like a great find - small but charming atmosphere, warm & attentive service. They get a good business with pre-theater and make sure you're out on time + you're away from the central Theater District hordes, yay. Really nice modern American menu with a Med slant. We mostly did small plates. Terrific cheese selection, croquettes were yummy, although we both thought the chicken liver mousse was too sweet. Short ribs with polenta special was super. Would def. go back and recommend to friends.
The drinks were good value and great. The food wasn’t a bad price but came very small and a little dry. They were out of waffles and Benedict’s for brunch! Tables uncomfortably close together.
Rude service! My appetizer, simple as it was, took 39 minutes to arrive. Too many main dishes listed on menu were not available.
Lovely little restaurant tucked away on 10th Avenue. We went before the theater and enjoyed the food and service. The restaurant is small and cozy but well worth the visit.
D&E is a terrific spot on 10th Avenue. The menu is very diverse including many unusual small plates. Each of the dishes was terrific. The service is informed, and responsive to needs of customers. The ambiance/decor is unreconstructed Hell's Kitchen store front tenement. But it works with the casual style. Great location for attending performances at Signature Theater. A little pricey, but try it. You will enjoy.
Birthday dinner for my SO, after a Broadway show. Intimate and casual ambience, good food, great service. Try the cheeses!
Loved it! Only thing is there is no free bread basket and the appetizers/cheese + charcuterie seem like they should come together too?
We started with a charcuterie and cheese selection that was pretty incredible! Then we went on to share a couple of small plates (a ribs special, and home made corndogs) and finally split a Lemon Three Ways dessert. Super tasty!
Great place! Food, service-everything was perfect. Will be back.
I have always loved Dianne & Elisabeth. Every meal here has been special, the staff is always congenial, the food is always delicious, and the drinks are always strong and flavorful. It's a bit pricey (for me) which keeps it at a "special occasion" level, but I'm more than happy to indulge several times a year. It's just always so reliably excellent.
We came to Dianne & Elisabeth during a long weekend vacation to NYC. We arrived around 2pm on a Saturday, a few hours after Bottomless Brunch had begun and surely a few hours after the large group behind us started drinking. The noise level was definitely off-putting at times. The restaurant itself was really nicely and simply designed. The food was delicious. We got the pretzel with pimento cheese, jalapeno biscuits, lemon ricotta waffle, and the sausage corn dogs. We also did the bottomless. It was nice because it wasn't just mimosas and bloody Marys... they also include Moscow Mules and Screwdrivers. Everything was great. The wait staff were all really attentive. Whenever anyone saw that our mimosas were low, even if they weren't our server, they brought us new ones. I would definitely come back and recommend.
Wonderful farm to table fare, great service, small menu and portions but delicious, cozy spot, I’ll be back again, thanks
Very small but works because they separate the bar from the eating space so you don’t need to worry about the bar people creeping in on you. The noise level is perfect, you can hear who you’re talking to but also don’t have to worry about listening to all convos around you. The cocktails are great and so is the service.
Dianne and Elizabeth was such a great neighborhood find! We went before a broadway show and they were super accommodating. Great meal!
The restaurant was quaint and cozy. The food was good, though not the most creative of menus. I quite enjoyed the roasted creamed kale dip. The combination of salty, earthy dip with the crispy, buttery crostini was rich and left a memorable impression on my palette. Additionally, the tomato soup with pão de queijo was delicious. Our server was attentive, kind and genuine. The price range seemed appropriate for the neighborhood, but if you want a better price-quality value, there are likely more affordable options.
It's a small restaurant so be prepared! Jalapeno muffins were great and so were the eggs bennie. Thumbs up to the bottomless bevs!
Small gem of a restaurant. I always get the sliders and fries which are heavenly. Limited menu but everything is excellent. Only reason gave it 4 stars on service is that they are understaffed and it can take a long time to get served . However when the drinks took too long they comped one which was very nice. Staff is very friendly and personable. Same owner as Marshals farm to table one block south which also is outstanding.
The 4 of us went to a show and had reservations here. It is very small but very nice. We all enjoyed our food. Waitress was a little surly at times. But we all enjoyed our evening there.
Very disappointing..........The ravioli was tough and hard?
We went for a pre-theatre meal. It was delicious and our waiter was helpful and friendly and added to the entire experience.
It was great.
We ate at Diane and Elizabeth before attending a play at the Signature Theater on West 42nd Street. We were a little concerned when we entered as it seemed noisy to us, but that was the bar; the restaurant was somewhat better in terms of noise (though could have been quieter).
The small plates we had were very good. Interesting flavor combinations, attractively presented. Definitely recommended. We thought the main dish we had (scallops and pasta) was OK, but the least impressive of the bunch. The glass of wine I had was tasty, but at $17, very expensive for the amount of wine I received.
The service was attentive, but not over bearing. The space is small and the tables are very close together. Given that, it wasn't too loud and we were able to have a conversation.
Our server was very welcoming and attentive. The food was very good. The cocktails looked good but since we are participating in "dry January" we weren't able to try any of them. So we will definitely be back! My only complaint is that the seating is very cramped but it's Manhattan and we often dine in Westchester so we are a little spoiled. The location was perfect for our performance at the Signature Theater.
They were short staffed but the server was very pleasant although she was extremely busy. But the food was excellent and one can usually forgive slow service in a situation such as this.
Food was good. We just ordered a bunch of appetizers.
It was all fine.
The waitress could have used an extra hand. Looked like she was handling it all on her own. Took too long to get us started, but otherwise it was fine.
Nothing on the menu for the kids. But they figured it out for us after much debate.
Went here for brunch before seeing a show. It was great! The food was pretty good - not the best I’ve ever had, but definitely tasty. It was a little expensive for what you received, but the overall ambiance and friendly staff make up for any of that. Our server took care of the ENTIRE dining room alone and never seemed rushed. In fact, he was delightful from start to finish. Will definitely be going back!
The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The menu had a lot to offer. The appetizers were delicious and the chicken entree was outstanding. I enjoyed my drink with the flaming cinnamon stick. We wish we had more time to stay for dessert, but we had theater tickets.
We will be back!
My boyfriend and I were in NY from out of town, and we love small plates to share, so when I saw the menu at Dianne & Elisabeth, I thought it would make for a fun date night in the city. I was so pleasantly surprised with this restaurant! It was unexpectedly quaint with only about 10 tables plus a bar, so we had the full attention of the staff when needed. You could tell that they truly cared about everything they put in from of us, from the delicious handcrafted cocktails to the creative farm-to-table inspired small plates. The duck confit wings were my favorite, with the croquettes a close second. They were also conscious of the small table area, and ensured that all of our plates came out at different times so our table wouldn’t be overcrowded. The decor was cute and the lights were low with candles at every table, adding to the ambiance and making for a romantic night out. Would highly recommend this place!
Cute restaurant. Not a lot of seating--we sat in a weird table next to the batheroom in the back--but would probably be good for a large group--15 or small-2. Not so good for inbetween. Food was good. i had the steak. My dining partners had the chicken and the scallops. I'm told the chicken was good, but the scallops were small and my dining companion was expecting larger ones. We had a fancy ice cream sandwich for dessert, which was fine, nothing special. As for the appetizers, we had some chicken liver pate, which I thought was nice, but not exceptional and some langostino poppers which were very tasty. The servers was helpful and kind. All the cocktails were delicious.
had dinner there for the first time on a rainy Sunday evening to celebrate our adult son's and my birthdays. the restaurant is quite small but it felt cozy. We tried several small plates to start including charcuterie and cheese, hot kale dip-all delicious. My entree (cod in parchment was ok-not so interesting) but the others enjoyed the beef sliders and chicken paillard. Desserts were also quite good-we had the ricotta cheese cake-very light and ice cream sandwiches. the waiter was extremely attentive and gave us helpful recommendations for what to order throughout the meal. I really enjoyed the evening and will definitely plan to return.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish in such a wee space!
Everyone was very friendly
My second time there and it was wonderful and warm. For no apparent reason we were welcomed as familiar friends each time. The hospitality with which we were welcomed seemed natural and sincere. The menu is delicious. Three of us shared 3 starters & an entree pre-theater.
The food was very good but we were rushed through our meal because there we another table in our table after us, we weren't even offered the last course or coffee.
The food was slightly underwhelming (could certainly have used more seasoning) and on my particular visit, the server, while polite and helpful, recited the specials while the other member of my party was not at the table. It's beautifully decorated and a nice ambiance; a more exciting culinary experience would have made me excited to go back.
Was very excited about going here before our show Sunday night. Slow service would be an understatement. We ordered no alcohol, 2 apps, and 2 entrees. There were 8 other TOTAL dining at the same time for the first 30 minutes. We were there for an hour and a half. We wanted to order dessert but sat with our entrees finished for 20 minutes before calling someone over just to get the bill. The food was under seasoned which made the whole experience disappointing.
Service was pretty slow. Took a while for our food to arrive and the server forgot to bring more coffee until I reminded him ten minutes later.
This is a tiny restaurant which is always packed (I walk by it many nights a week.) There was only one waiter and a host there--they could have benefited from another waiter. They were both pretty frantic the whole time we were there, but except for one incident the service was still good. We waited over a half an hour for our appetizer, but when it turned out the order had been lost the waiter took it off our bill and did finally bring it. (A friend of mine in the neighborhood said this happened to her with her entree when she went there too ) When our appetizer arrived --it was a salad with some tempura squash in it. The tempura was quite soggy--not crisp as it should be--but by that time we were so hungry it was great! The pastas we ordered were delicious but really needed bread so we ordered some (it was extra but not that expensive)--it was delicious and came pretty quickly. I think if the wait staff was not so overwhelmed they might have suggested it with this dish which was very soupy--delicious but needed something to soak up the juice. We will go again sometime on a week night perhaps. Menu is interesting and not crazy pricey and it has a friendly cheerful vibe. Just maybe a little understaffed.
This is a great, small restaurant that was really buzzying and the food and wine was regional....great fun.
