Eastfield’s is a sort-of-healthy restaurant on the UES where you can bring a date and pretend you’re downtown.
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.
Great food and ambiance. Our server Steven was very knowledgable and attentive. The shrimp and grits special was amazing.
Went for brunch and was very happy. They accommodated us earlier than our reservation which was appreciated. The food was delicious- French toast, veggie burger, frittata, service friendly and efficient. Will go back!
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.
Service was incredibly slow, they really need to hire more wait staff . In addition, the menu offerings were pretty limited and my salmon was a low quality piece.
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 $4.00 diner-type coffee is a bit absurd.
The waitstaff (2) were doing their best but extremely shorted staffed for a Friday night and a full restaurant!
We did not have a great experience here. We ordered drinks and after 20 minutes of waiting asked where they were. We were then told that the bartender had not made them yet. We then cancelled the margheritas & ordered wine.
Our food order came out wrong and so it went back and we waited for another 20 minutes. The ambience is nice and they ended up comping our drinks but they seriously need a better bartender and more experienced server.
Pretty disappointed. Was served a 65$ bottle of white wine warm. Also waited 30 mins past our reservation time. Been here a few times and would not return again.
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!
Food great but wine prices by the glass too high. Buy a bottle.
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.
The caesar salad was bland. The roast chicken had about a pound of salt poured on it....it was nearly inedible. Service was good, staff was friendly.
Food was really good. I had the macro bowl which was totally delicious. The room is loud with babies but the food makes it worth while!
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!
The ambiance was very nice and the food was okay as well. The service was pretty slow, however, and our waiter messed up our wine order. We ended up drinking what he brought us, but he seemed very confused about which wine was in which glass when he was serving us... Overall, I would rate okay/good.
Fun yummy brunch
The menu seemed very limited. I wound up ordering 2 appetizers instead of an entrée. How can mac and cheese be bad? But it was bad....dry and unseasoned. The ambiance is nice. The service was nice and the house Chardonnay was very good.
Service was very good and the food as well. Will go back again.
Took my Family for first time. My husband and I have been many times before. It’s always great. Th family loved their brunch. 💚❤️
The waiter was not attentive. I’ve been to Eastfields several times and this was the first time service was not attentive.
The new male waiter was pleasant, friendly, and menu -knowledgeable. But he needs a bit more practice with the credit card machine. Kierston fixed the problem.
Otherwise, our dinner before bridge game was wonderful as usual.
First visit here and what a great surprise! Casual but unique menu and good Saturday night crowd. Bar looked fun and we all really enjoyed our dinner. Definitely good for a friends get together and a neighborhood gem.
One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Great food and ambiance.
Great food. Charming
Yummy brunch spot
Busy neighborhood gem - staff is warm but can be swamped @ busiest time - worked to meet our every need. Definitely recommend & will return
Small neighborhood place. Nice feel to it. I had the fish and Brussels sprouts which was delicious. My husband had the chicken. Excellent. We will return. The only possible problem is the smaller menu, but I’m sure that there is something for everyone.
Great cocktails and service. Will definitely be back!
Great Service! Hostess was very accommodating.
Second time I have eaten here and was just as good as the first time and different waiters each time, but both friendly, yet professional. Love the intimate size and noise level very low.
Nice enough place, food as just okay and service wasn't great. Crowded and that seemed to throw off service a bit.
Eastfield's is one of our standby places. The cocktails are great. I am partial to the East Pole Manhattan and my wife likes the Spiciest Margarita (beware it's pretty hot), and the food is always great and really high quality. We have yet to have a bad meal there.
The ambience of this restaurant is on the "Pub" side, and the service can be hit or miss, but the food is absolutely superb. This time we had an indifferent Maitre' D but a very attentive waitress, and everyone was delighted with their food. It's worth the trip just for the whiskey pudding.
Great atmosphere. Tasty food. Limited menu. Cocktails from heaven. Neighborhood gem
Had a very enjoyable meal, like the appetizers and menu choices, flavorful and healthy, tasty, great meal. Nice atmosphere.
