Classic Cocktails with a twist.
What Insiders Are Saying
Eastfield’s is a sort-of-healthy restaurant on the UES where you can bring a date and pretend you’re downtown.
There was a hair in my food but I was on a date and didn’t want to make it a point to say something during the date.
Valentine’s Day dinner, not overcrowded, everyone was comfortable and not forced to order from a prefixed menu. Drinks were great!
Popular and consequently often cramped Upper East Side eatery serving gastro pub food in a noisy atmosphere to a wide age-range of clientele. A bit of attitude on the door suggesting the staff aren't best suited to dealing with the high turnover of tables, but the service was very friendly when the staff weren't chatting each other up.
We ordered simply and were not disappointed. The calamari was laced with jalapeno tempura for some reason, while the steak needs to be ordered at least medium, otherwise the cut is tough. The lamb Shawarma was good, but more accurately described as hummus shawarma featuring lamb. The price was standard for this part of town, but would be expensive if you lived anywhere else.
As a local eatery at relatively low cost, you can see why this is popular, but it will not become our staple.
Brunch was great. Service was too. One of our party was vegan and she was quite happy. I’m from Buffalo and was equally as happy! The food was well prepared and the bacon in the Bloody Mary was crisp.
So accommodating with kids. Great spot
While the grilled vegetables on the striped bass plate were tasty, the fish tasted fishy, was a very small portion and had lots of dark brown inedible areas. I went home and had a yogurt because I was so hungry!
We were a group of 6 people and were crammed at 2 stone top tables that weren’t leveled while there were plenty of other empty tables. Need better seating arrangement!
We were seated right away. The service was attentive, even though it was crowded. We all four of us got something different and all enjoyed our food--ate everything.
Very hot, inside on far right corner! Seats jammed in for a Saturday night! It was relatively early for NYC but it was so loud you could hardly talk! Our waitress was attentive but she had a huge number of tables to serve! Would not go there again unless for less busy time ! Food was good value but 90 pct of people were eating burgers!!!!
We enjoyed our evening at Eastfields. Service very good. Food very good.
Will definitely be back.
Food was delicious

Nice neighborhood restaurant/bar. Low key ambience, friendly low key staff. Food was okay not bad just okay.
Love the food!!
Excellent service with a smile and they remember their regulars !
Loved it so much. Always good. I had the burger and my daughter had the salmon benedict. Delicious.
Tasty food in a nice local Upper East Side location. Good burgers. The braised lamb schwarma was delicious.
Great food and friendly staff. Only negative would be that on this day, restaurant didn't seem to be as busy as usual, yet the service was very slow.
Great food with nice menu options, drinks and service.
Dinner w friends
I have been many times and I think the menu needs more variety . Th e Arctic char dish was small with just spinach
Yummy food; great service
Food was very good. Fresh ingredients. Served promptly, warm.
We went on a very busy Saturday night and our server was obviously over extended. The food was good (nothing fantastic) but I asked for the wine list to order a glass of wine with dinner and our server never checked on us to get the order. We were finished with our meal and the server finally came by to bring our check. We decided to go elsewhere for a glass of wine.
very good but ran out of alot of things on the menu. will try again
Excellent ! We will be back!
The atmosphere and service at Eastfield's is excellent and the food at is very good but nothing overly interesting or inspiring.
We love coming to Eastfields, the wait is always a little long for our food but the food always great.
Love this place !!!
We had a delicious meal in a stylish neighborhood setting. Have been wanting to try it for a while. When there was a delay in seating us because of people not vacating tables, the hostess sent us complimentary biscuits. Very nice. Looking forward to returning.
good food and overall good experience but service was disappointing. waiter was really overwhelmed and had no time for us.
The noise level is CRAZY loud but the food is just great. We love having a neighborhood restaurant.
This was my second time at Eastfield’s and it was a great place to bring out of town friends. It has your typical NYC brunch menu. The service both times I’ve been has been slow, but if you’re with friends you don’t really notice. Would recommend the messy breakfast sandwich and the biscuits with honey butter.
First we ordered the eggs over easy and when they can put one yolk was broken, told waitress and she didn’t know what we were talking about. Finally they replaced the egg. Also, one other guest got sick from the French toast. Not such a good experience.
This was our second time for brunch and everything was superb. I wish I had gotten names but our server was fantastic (he usually works at East Pole) and the female manager was so nice and accommodating. We will certainly turn into regulars! Keep it up!
The portions here are TINY. After i finished the lamb shawarma, I had to order a side dish because I was still hungry.
Great menu, service and decor. Very family friendly for a “cool” place. Lots of strollers.
I have now been to this restaurant 3 times. It’s always soooo hot inside. Every person who has ever gone with me has been so uncomfortable from the temperature inside. Too bad because the food is good and the bar is fun !!! Doesn’t matter if it’s winter or summer, it’s just so awful. Maybe they should invest in a better AC unit .. I won’t be returning unfortunately !!!
We enjoyed our visit to Eadtfield's. Food was very good.
Limited brunch menu but service was good. Very accommodating to my elderly mother but I wish they had more options on the menu.
We went to Eastfield's for my dad and brother-in-law's birthday brunch, as noted on my opentable reservation. While the food was great, the service really detracted from our experience. For context more than half the restauarant was empty, as it was a late brunch reservation (3pm).
First, we all (six people) ordered a round of drinks and one was forgotten. We told our server of the issue, she did not apologize, and then after double-checking a few times that we didn't receive it and asking the type of drink three times, approximately 10 minutes later it arrived - after I saw it sitting prepared on the bar for several minutes. It was frustrating because we were waiting to "cheers" together. Second, similarly, 5 out of 6 entrees arrived within a minute or so of each other and the last took MUCH longer - to the point that one person was completely finished with their entree before the last arrived. Our server did not apologize or explain what happened. Third, someone ordered a gin and soda, but a gin and tonic arrived, and after pointing out the issue to the server, that the drink ordered was a gin and soda, not tonic, she brought over a little glass of tonic, and explained that the tonic had a unique taste...we, again, explained that the drink that was ordered a gin and soda, not a gin and tonic. It was finally prepared correctly. I had also planned on ordering more than one drink, but she never came around to ask if we wanted another round until I was almost finished with my entree.
In addition to the specific issues, service was generally very slow. As soon as we could flag her down, in a now almost empty restaurant, we paid the bill and left. It's a shame because it's a cute restaurant and the food and drinks were really good.
Unfortunately, the food and ambiance don't overcome the service issues for me and I would not go back.
