Service was abysmal. It took twenty minutes before the waiter came to take our orders, and then he took the drink orders and ran before we could order our food. Ten minutes later he brought the drinks and took our food order. By then it was after 7, and we told him we had theater that night. Ten minutes later some of our first courses arrived. After another ten minutes we spoke to the manager, pointing out that we need to leave soon, and we still hadn't gotten one of the first course dishes, and non of the main course. Five minutes later a server came toward us with the good, but turned back when he saw the table hadn't been cleared of the first course. The food - most but not all of it - came at 7:30, an hour after the last of our party had been seated. We had to wolf it down and run to get to our seats before curtain. And we never got one of the salads. And they made no accommodation, but charged full price for a ruined meal
Great food in an ideal location by Lincoln Center. Good for before or after a show. The pre-fix menu is a wonderful deal. Ask for this menu if you don’t receive it when seated. Three full courses for $47. The potato chip crusted cod is delectable. Crunchy topping with a savory sauce. Attentive wait staff. My only critique is that they need more space by the front of the house so you can give the coat check your wardrobe and wait to be seated without awkwardly standing amongst so many other patrons.
Enjoyed our meal. They have some very simple options which is nice. Lovely presentation. Giant wine list.
Food was fine and service was ok, but the day we were there the restaurant had a water main break. They were vacuuming up all of the water, which was very loud. While I understand that the water main break wasn’t their fault, I thought the management could’ve handled the situation better. They could’ve explained the situation better and perhaps given a small discount or a free dessert.
A staple on the Upper West Side, Ed's had some good crab cakes, tuna, salad, mac and cheese and wine list. Slow service. Decent food
We gave our credit card to the restaurant before my parents reservation, physically went to the restaurant then then the front of the house neglected to speak to the waiter so my parents paid for their own Xmas gift :(
The waitress Courtney was excellent. As soon as we sat down she asked if we were going to the theatre and when we said yes she said she would have us out on time. Even though she was busy she came over often to see if everything was all right.
However, the dessert was awful. Rest of the food was good.
Everything was great until I got to the ladies room. Have you never heard of hot water???
An old school fish house with high volume, high throughput dining experience. The “loaded” lobster chowder had three small bits of what might hav e been lobster and had been boiled so furiously that it was served with a thick “skin” on top. The scallops were served like warm.
We've dined at the Chowder House several times, prior to attending concerts at Lincoln Center. The menu is somewhat limited and arranged in a novel way but the food is always very good. Service is efficient and non-obtrusive .
Reservations are a must for dinner!
