It’s always a great night when you can find parking right nearby. I knew it would be a good night. Service was great.

This restaurant needs to fix its front desk people. The food was great. My steak was cooked to perfection. The wait staff was really on the ball. The problem was our seating. The restaurant was mostly empty when we entered. We had a reservation but they seated us at a table near a work station. I asked for a booth but was told the booths were only for parties larger than four. After we were seated they promptly sat a party of four at a booth. Next time I am in the area I will be looking for a different restaurant.

The service was excellent. There was confusion about whether sushi was available for a Saturday afternoon meal. The restaurant should make it clear that the brunch menu is available on weekend afternoons.

A good place for brunch in the West 50's. We were very warmly welcomed and the host
went out of his way to find a good table for us. All the staff was friendly and attentive.
It was our first visit, and we will return.

Food was wonderful, service was fantastic. Very nice for an evening out. It happened to be next door to our hotel, but it is worth traveling to visit. There was also live music that was very good. Really enjoyed our dinner.

Great for brunch. Wonderful atmosphere, service and food. We ordered from the pop up Brooklyn Diner menu, which included coffee and juice. It was really great. We had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, which was really excellent. We'll be going back for sure.

Wow! How this restaurant has fallen from grace!! I always included a trip there when I visited NY. I'll not be back. We had a 2 pm reservation--and the restaurant was not crowded (no excuses). When shown to our table, I had to move the crumbs off the chair before sitting down. The service was terrible--had to ask two waiters for a serving spoon for the creamed spinach and then gave up and used our forks! I ordered fried onion rings that were tired at best; they were not fresh. Must say that the steak was excellent and cooked to order. Wow. soooo disappointing. What used to be their distinction is now their glaring error--excellent service and thoughtful, well-prepared food. Won't be back.

Steakhouse, zum Teil im Bar Stil, deshalb relativ laut. Super Service, man ging sehr auf unsere Bedürfnisse (mit Baby, 4 Monate alt) ein. Appetizer, Shrimp und Oysters, sowie Steak sehr gut.

Surly waiter. Asked for bread 4 times and finally got 4 pieces of white toast. Calamari was very salty and other food [burgers, etc.] tasted like they were made from frozen patties. Atmosphere very nice but drinks very overpriced and food very mediocre

Food was below average. Salad was wilted as if it had been sitting in a bowl in refrige for hours. Dressing had no taste. Bread was good. Steak was good ( small Sirloin), but nothing fabulous. Fries not good. Clam chowder not great. Salad not great.

The restaurant was decorated with interesting artwork. The service was great. The food was great. I had ordered a filet mignon that was a little tough. I'm sure it happens, but I would definitely go back and try another one.

Overall the dining experience was pleasant although at times the noise level was extremely annoying. Sadly I guess that’s the evening plight of all Manhattan restaurants nowadays. One final point, given the the ‘MeToo’ and ‘TimesUp” movements... is that 10-foot statue of a woman opening a bottle of wine between her legs really necessary? Would Rotisserie Georgette, Nobu57, The Modern or Gotham Bar & Grill ever have such a display? Anyway Redeye Grill still remains a favorite restaurant because of its overall ambiance and location...

I've been a regular at Redeye for about 15+ years and was so glad that it finally re-opened after the fire. However, I was disappointed that on a Sunday evening at 6:15 pm in a room that wasn't completely full, my request for a table near the window hadn't been honored (I know there's no guarantee) and my entree was delivered before I finished my appetizer.

Although our server was very friendly I waited 30 minutes to get the glass of wine I ordered. We did not get bread at the table until we asked for it twice and 45 minutes after we arrived. We waited an hour for our appetizer. Our food was at best mediocre. The shrimp tempura roll did not taste fresh. The lettuce in our salads was wilted. I ordered my salmon medium rare and it was served well done. No one came over to ask us how we liked our food. Very very disappointed.

Hadn't been to this restaurant in years. And after the experience I had, it will be many more years, or
never, that I return. The restaurant was almost empty, it was a Monday night, and the service was TERRIBLE. Had a 7pm reservation and was through at 9:45?????? Food was mediocre at best and when paired with the exorbitant prices, its not worth your time, your money, or your tastebuds. Stay away.

So glad this place opened its doors again! Lovely ambiance and albeit a reduced Menu, all we chose to eat was wonderful! The lobster mac & cheese is really good. Salads are great too. Wonderful cocktails and wine selections. Our server was alright - he was not paying sufficient attention to our table, so on one occasion we had to get up and serve our own wine. In addition, it was difficult to get his attention when needed. Not the service we're used to here, so we'll try it again.

Great food, sat outside and enjoyed a nice evening in New York weather wise for October. Destiny was our server, fantastic, attentive. Several people stopped by our table checking to ensure everything was to our liking. Food was great, the dancing shrimp is a must, I had it as my entree. Banana cream pie is incredible as well. You won't be sorry if you go.

Service was slow - I think the kitchen was shorthanded - our waiter did his best with our table of 7...
Regarding the food - I think most everyone was satisfied, but I had one of the "house specialities" - beef bourguignon - and it was relatively tasteless with very little sauce. Maybe an off night. We were celebrating a birthday, however, and the birthday girl had a great time.

From the time I was greeted by Richard through our lovely window table dinner with Reniti; we could not have been more pleased. Our fish dinners were perfectly prepared; service was exemplary and the atmosphere just lovely. Everyone who works there has such charm and grace; we can’t wait for another concert at Carnegie Hall so we can return to the Red Eye Grill! What a wonderful spot with great food and a wonderful staff!

The food was very good. We had the cod and jumbo lump crab cake with shrimp. The cod was a little small but perfectly cooked and tasty. The crab cake was delicious but I was disappointed that it was made of shredded crab. I was definitely expecting lumps of crab meat instead of shredded crab.

We also had a major problem with service that night. We were seated at a table next to tje window which was nice. Our waiter was very friendly. He took our drink and food order and everything came out in a timely manner. However, that was the last time we saw him. We had one diet soda and one glass of riesling the entire night. Never asked if we wanted a refill of either. Another waiter that was serving tables nearby noticed we had been done eating dinner for quite some time and cleared our table for us and gave us the dessert menu. We turned down dessert and just sat there for another long period while watching our waiter expeditiously serve tables on a lower level of the restaurant. Eventually he made eye contact with us and came over to ask if we wanted anything else. Of course, by that time, all we wanted was the check and to leave.

In all fairness, it appears that the waiter was moved to another section of the restaurant after we were seated and waited on by him. He just clearly forgot we were there. Also, all the other waiters seem to be on top of their game and no one else appeared to be left waiting. Because of this I would never set foot in this restaurant again; however, I do think this was a one off and would encourage others to give it a try.

Unfortunately, it was my spouse's birthday and dinner was an epic fail but we had a blast in NYC the remainder of the night!

Awful service. We showed up at 8.30am for our breakfast reservation - this was a business meeting. The manager was the one serving us. She gave us coffee and menus and then disappeared. We finished our coffees and no one came to take our orders for food or even refill our coffee. We saw a waiter and asked him about it but he just muttered and send the manager to us again. She took our orders and refilled our coffee. Around 9.15am we still hadn't received our food. We inquired about it and the manager came back to tell us there was a paper jam so our orders didn't go through. She promised that she would have it for us in 5 mins if we reordered. We did so. Finally at 9.30am we decided to leave some cash for the coffee and leave.

There was couple next to us who waited for 20 mins with no coffee or any service. They asked us incredulously whether we had just ordered because clearly we were there much earlier than them. Even though the manager saw them she didn't bother to ask them anything when she came to try to fix our snafu. They ended up leaving before us without being served anything or anyone even coming to say hello or offer coffee.

Lukcily, the business meeting was with an old acquaintance. To say the least it was embarrassing as the host.

Not somewhere I would ever go again.
