We had the burrata and truffle bacon mac n cheese to start - both great. For main courses, the macro bowl, burger, and roasted chicken were all great too. But the truffle mushroom puree that goes with the roasted chicken is not very truffley.

My husband and I went for a 2 pm brunch. The restaurant was busy with young couples and young families with strollers. Our waitress was personable and it didn’t seem her fault that my drink came with the entree
My husband’s French toast was delicious but my chicken and waffles were only O K. We would try again

My husband & I stumbled upon Eastfield’s last year, when my friend hosted her daughters graduation party there. Since we’ve come countless times. Each and every time we are blown away by the service, cocktails & food! Tonight we enjoyed another date night. My husband had the burger (his favorite) and I had the macro bowl. We were pleasantly surprised by their new dessert additions. Warm, flourless chocolate cake with vanilla IC! WOW! Although we did have a minor mix up with our order the manager immediately came to our table & resolved it. She is such a sweetheart! The staff is always so friendly & helpful. We love this little neighborhood gem!

Food was delicious and atmosphere was nice. Very comfortable seating and friendly staff. Just one suggestion, I sampled all of the 5 glasses of red wine on the wine menu and only one made the cut. I’d recommend taking the time to find better wine options.

This is a very nice place for brunch! The front side of the restaurant opens up so you get a nice outdoorsy feel if you get one of the tables there. The service is very friendly and patient. My friend and I spent a lot of time chatting and just finishing one drink and next before ordering food. We hadn't seen each other in a while and had a lot to catch up on! But I truly appreciated our server being patient about it because we did not order food for a while. Food was yummy! I had the messy sandwich which has a lovely spicy tinge to it. My friend had the asparagus frittata. The greens salad that came with both dishes was fresh. The rose tequila sangria was a bit on the sour side. The peach bellini was good. My only recommendation would be to add a mimosa to the brunch drinks.
Overall a wonderful experience and we would certainly be returning and recommending this place to others!

First time at Eastfield's - have been to East Pole Fish Bar and East Pole Kitchen. Enjoyed the cocktails - spicy margarita and cucumber & mint-infused vodka. Peekytoe crab & avocado toast was good and our entrees were tasty. Will be back.

Our waiter Tye was exceptional. Attentive and accommodating. We had to send drinks back. My wife ordered a hamburger about 7:30 PM. Tye came back to say they ran out. Food was poor to fair. Noise level intense We would never go back or recommend it.

It was our friend’s birthday. It was great but way too hot inside. It was 90 degrees out and they had the doors open. Even though the air was on it didn’t matter. There were 6 of us. 5 out of the 6 were uncomfortable because it was sooooo hot !!!!!

Food is very average and overpriced. The service is simply a disaster! All waiters have an attitude, systematically droping things at your table.
Please avoid this place by all means.

We were given an option for seating which was very much appreciated. Food came out hot & delicious. The macro plate is always excellent. And even though we never eat Mac & cheese - we make an exception- it’s wonderful!

Good to find local restaurant. Menu was limited and would have liked to see a few more choices. The only fish is salmon and they were out of salmon when we went. However there were other interesting things-- the quinoa bowl was very good; the lamb shwarma enjoyed by husband, and falafel burger by others ( they said good but a little dry).
It was not too noisy, which we liked. Would definitely go back again.

We went for brunch. My husband ordered the french toast, which was so thick and delicious. I had the chicken and waffles, which were also yummy. We had a side of biscuits, which were small but tasty. We enjoyed a quiet brunch here.

One of our favorites. At night it is a little less noisy with fewer children and the addition of noise cancelling panels helps. The menu is from locally sourced ingredients and always fresh. The nightly specials are a treat.When I want to eat healthier I order the Macro Bowl which is delicious on its own (vegan) but so much better with chicken. Of course my husband has yet to order anything but the Berkshire pork chop. The crab avocado toast appetizer is delicious and large enough to share, but I don't. This restaurant is the quiet star of the East Pole group. We have never been disappointed. Kudos to Carl for a well run ship.

The food was very good, the service was fine and we were stuck behind a big, loud group of guys, which was not ideal. But, I would return for the food. Brunch was great, though $4.00 diner-type coffee is a bit absurd.

We did not have a great experience here. We ordered drinks and after 20 minutes of waiting asked where they were. We were then told that the bartender had not made them yet. We then cancelled the margheritas & ordered wine.
Our food order came out wrong and so it went back and we waited for another 20 minutes. The ambience is nice and they ended up comping our drinks but they seriously need a better bartender and more experienced server.

It's almost one year later that I decided once again to have a Mother Day Brunch at Eastfield. Although I mention on my last review that I will visit this restaurant often, I could not believe it had been almost a year since I last dined here.

I had made reservations several weeks prior guessing that it would be very busy for Mother Day Brunch. We had the Chicken on waffle, breakfast sandwich and a hamburger. All were excellent. My last visit we had Avocado Toast with egg which was also wonderful. I will try to stop by this time in less than a year from now.

I absolutely loved Eastfield’s. From the host who greeted us to the delicious cocktails and food to the nice ambiance, I thoroughly enjoyed this place. I had the scallops which were a special and the meal was very tasty and my lavender gin cocktail was so good. I will definitely be going back to Eastfield’s in the near future!

Lauren is wonderful at the bar if you’re lucky enough to have her mix your cocktails, she takes pride in her work. Chris is a great server and is comfortable asa person, which makes the experience that much more relaxed and personalized. The food was both imaginative and easy to enjoy. The only detractors were that the sundae was misrepresented as being topped by cherries and there was a wait for of our table of approx 20 mins even with a reservation, but Lauren made up for that. I’d say go.

Don't let its York Avenue location deceive you: Eastfield's meets every standard for a fantastic Upper East Side dining experience. Like its sister establishment The East Pole, Eastfield's cozy, candlelit environment is its greatest draw.

But the food stands among the best you'll find in the neighborhood. You'll find the menu diverse but not overwhelming, with options for all dietary preferences, including a delightful vegan "macro plate."

For my relatively large group of seven, the server was friendly and knowledgeable but a bit inattentive. Thankfully, we were too enchanted by the atmosphere, flowing wine and fabulous company to notice!
