Fifty feet from Carnegie Hall, near Central Park and convenient to all midtown hotels, the Redeye takes its name from the infamous late-night flight linking America's two cultural hubs. The flavors of the two coasts are fused in both the grand cafe's interior design and the bold New American menu.
Redeye Grill Ratings and Reviews
My daughter and I ate here during a special getaway weekend. I was given a glass of prosecco while we waited for our table. We were given a table that was near a bright light and we asked to be moved. They moved us, no problem. Food was delicious. Waiter was slow to check on us, but may that was due to us moving tables. Would definitely come back.
Kids first trip to NY - and their first full lobster! The head host (or Maitre d, not sure what to call him) was incredibly professional and welcoming. Made my family of four feel like VIP's (even though we were obviously just typical tourists that night). Hanger steak w fried rice and kimchi was great, as was my wife's crab cake and shrimp
I’ve been here a few times andnots always the same thing. Excellent service, the varied and delicious menu (especially the lobster Mac and cheese), a knowledgeable and friendly bartender and staff and friendly atmosphere. It’s always nice to be greeted at a restaurant by the matee’d who says hi with a friendly handshake. Definitely deserves a try or a repeat visit.
Very nice host who couldn’t be nicer when I had to sit 30 min at the bar waiting for a table even though I had a OT resv. . But a very unfriendly waiter who made us finally walk out before we ate because he took another 30 minutes to take our order and was rude when we asked to have vegetables instead of French fries because of a gluten allergy. Overall very very unpleasant experience!!
Made reservation months in advance requesting a booth by window and called at 5:00 to confirm was told we were all set. Upon arrival were seated at a horrible table crushed against a wooden corner. Was moved but not without complaining. Food is overpriced which I wouldn't mind if it was amazing which it wasn't. $39 for sea bass with no sides, $59 prime rib was unremarkable. Wine priced at $23. Per Glass!! Server seemed rushed and never checked on us. Server told us we had a five min walk to theatre which was really more like 20 so we ended up arriving 15 min late to the theatre. What was supposed to be a special night felt very disappointing. Bathrooms were a mess! Used to be my "go to". Restaurant in NYC but has really changed.
We had a early dinner after a matinee on Saturday. The food was amazing. The service was very quick and attentive. When my husband mentioned that we were celebrating my birthday the staff went out of there way to put a sparkler on my desert and sing a very fun rendition of "Happy Birthday to a perfect stranger" to make me feel special. I loved it.
As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by the nicest host and hostess. They made us feel completely welcome, and we knew we were in for a treat! It was my husband's birthday, and they sat us next to the window at a circle table sprinkled with a little bit of birthday confetti-- this touch made his night extra special.
The rest of our night matched the attention to detail that we experienced when we first walked in. Our server was very knowledgeable about the different entrees on the menu, and even though he was very busy, he still made sure to spend time at our table to make nice conversation. The staff was all kind and attentive, as well!
The live music was excellent and added to the ambiance. The bar scene is casual, but still present. I enjoy that, even though we were sitting at a table. It was evident that this was the place to be. We are so happy we dined with Redeye Grill!
We had so much fun with the hostess, serving staff other than our actual waiter who was aloof and unfriendly, and the musicians. It's unfortunate that our waiter was a dud as the meal was delicious, ambiance wonderful and the piano player and singer were perfect!
The best thing about Redeye is the live music by far. My three times there they had a female singer and a piano player who also sang. They are pretty good and we've enjoyed that the most. The first two visits we enjoyed the food more. Each time I get the Ribeye but this time is had way too much fat on it. Probably 25% I had to cut away. The mashed potatoes were tasteless. The waiter just did not seem that interested in serving us. The crab cake salad was delicious but for $32 it was only one small piece and mostly avocado. Also we were still eating the appetizer when they plopped the steaks in front of us. Aside from the music which was great, I was very disappointed. My wife love coming because of the music. Next time, if there is one, I will be more intentional about everything I order and when I want it. I am looking for other venues that give similar live music and better food service.
Pre-theatre meal. Greeted warmly by host. Server attentive initially.
As it got busier, noise level increased, server wasn’t around much, and piano music/singing started from the bar. Personally I found the music to be loud and intrusive for dining.
It wasn’t relaxing so we left after our entrees.
Food was good, not great. I asked for a recommendation of a glass of wine and he suggested the Sauvignon Blanc, didn’t say where it was from, or describe how it would complement my entree. Not very impressed.
Before City Center. Was surprised to get e-mail next day from Open Table saying I did not honor reservation as I had checked in with hostess upon arrival was shown to table and had dinner!
Started with Caesar salad which was quite tasty but afterwards couldn't remember seeing any parmesan? Then had crab cake with shrimp. One smallish crab cake and 4 jumbo shrimp which weren't all that jumbo after dissection process of removing head, tail, and legs!
Service adequate. A bit pricey for what it was but restaurant is well situated for Carnegie Hall, City Center, Central Park, Rock Center so....
Chocolate chip cookie offered out of oven on baking sheet a nice touch...
