Everyone was extremely lovely and friendly, attentive, and working hard at remaining cheerful despite growing corona virus concerns and the closing of all Broadway shows. The food was delicious and service was great!

Made a reservation for two at 6 for a pre-theater dinner. My partner is a flexible vegan/pescatarian and I had been impressed by the online menu - vegan soup of the day and plenty of fish dishes. Lovely restaurant, visually very sophisticated. A little loud for my taste but I'm 65 and most places are. A charming waiter with an improbably coiffed moustache took our order and disappeared for half an hour. When my partner's chopped salad (hold the bacon lardons) and my specialty of the house Scallops in a Skillet arrived we were able to order drink refills. The busman who served the skillet warned me that the metal was hot so I was surprised to find that its contents were not; the scallops were little more than room temperature. I mentioned it to the manager who was very solicitous and professional and he whisked it away and, after a few minutes under the warming lamp, returned it to me, a bit warmer. The flavors and textures were fine, bland, but not a house specialty quality. The chopped salad was adequate. Overall, no reason to return.

Excellent food, Excellent Service— nice decor and vibe.
Added bonus, the waitstaff walked around with trays of warm cookies for the guests.
Great experience, will definitely be dining here again.

Nice decor yet average food for the price. They serve cold, soft pretzels (with butter) at the table instead of bread which seems completely out of place for a seafood centered restaurant. For desert, the chocolate black out cake we had was cold instead of room-temp and seemed to be made off site and refrigerated before serving. I don't think we'll go back.

Restaurant is just ok. Menu had limited choices. Ended up with Sea Bass, it was fresh but not great. I should have ordered steak but not in a seafood restaurant.
Not my vibe

We wanted a regular table and we’re seated at a cocktail table by the bar. My coq au vin Was cold and the waiter was not present. I used to go here when it first opened and it was excellent. It is officially off of my list

I ran a performing arts institution in midtown Manhattan for many years. The RedEye Grill was an opening night hang-out for us... Then I retired and moved away. This past week, I had occasion to be back in the neighborhood and booked a lunch with a dear friend. Boy, was I impressed. SO impressed that I cancelled an evening booking at a different restaurant in order to return to Red Eye! I did so again two days later! The food - with an emphasis on seafood, of course, is terrific, and the management and service was attentive, friendly, and welcoming. Red Eye is close to City Center, Carnegie Hall, the theater district, and Central Park... Wow. I recommend it highly and expect to return whenever I'm back in NYC in the future.

I used to love Redeye before it shut down and reopened. I came back and I found any number of things different. The menu was different. The seafood dishes were candidly foolish. The sushi dishes were both unnecessary and inauthentic. And over-all, it was not remotely a value.

in addition, the service was horrendous. We were there for 20 minutes before we were able to even order a drink. That was symptomatic of every single time the server walked away from the table.

The short answer is we will not be coming back and I've already communicated my extraordinarily poor experience to several friends.

I'm really sorry, guys, but you need to rethink your strategy on this.

Got put in a dingy back room with low ceilings and green felt covered walls. Not the ambiance we were looking for and completely inconsistent with the rest of the restaurant.

It was Valentine’s Day so it was a busy night. While our waiter wasn’t always around when needed, the manager came over to check on us at just the right time. We had a great experience, enjoyed our dinner and would go back.

Fantastic service. Very polite, quick, considerate and very attentive to your needs. The Food was absolutely delicious, not one course ordered was disappointing. On top of the wide wine and whiskey selection to combine with your meal. Simply a remarkable/memorable experience. 10/10 would come again for occasions or a night out. More on the expensive side but be rest assured the quality of your meal will be phenominal.

Redeye Grill is still a great venue with great energy and ambience. The live music was a hit with us. Having gone to Redeye on an off over the last 20 years, this last visit was disappointing. The service was mostly okay--timing could have been better, but it was the food that disappointed. The dancing shrimp appetizer looked more like overcooked, dried out fried shrimp than the once spectacular dancing shrimps of days gone by. Steak frites was more grisly than one would have hoped--the frites, however, were good. The miso cod was pretty good, but less than fabulous for a seafood destination place. Perhaps most disappointing and the real reason to go to Redeye was the banana cream pie. This used to be a to die for dessert, fresh bananas and fluffy cream, but today it tasted more like a recently thawed and not quite so fresh blob of cream with some bananas. We wanted to love the old place, but probably won't go back. Alas.

We love the Redeye but last night we had to wait a ridiculously long time for our food. The service is usually spot on. I’m sure it won’t happen again. This is our go to restaurant for all Carnegie hall events and whenever we need a restaurant in midtown

Server was nice, friendly, helpful but it took a long time to get the appetizer (not his fault) and then the main courses came while we were still eating the calamari. The kitchen has to get some kinks out but we would go back.

Recently remodeled, excellent location and atmosphere which is enhanced with a live piano bar/playing. The food presentation & taste was “good” however, the servers MUST be trained! Our waitress forgot to ask for our drink order (most profitable item at a restaurant). They were out of the Brooklyn beer on draft and out of the “dancing shrimp” advertised front & center on the top of the menu. The table next to us ordered a beef & pasta entree which their server left on a mobile burner next to me and completely “forgot” to serve his customer. It was the HOST who eventually serviced that table after the 4 men waited for at least 10 minutes. Oh, and our waitress re-filled my wine at the end of our date failing to notice the egg & bleu cheese chunks in the glass.

I was excited to bring my fiancé and left feeling very disappointed. The lack of training and competent management, along with poorly executed service depletes the restaurant from all of its potential.

We visited on a busy Friday night and were delighted at how we were greeted, treated and fed!

We tried the coconut dancers, which were good once we figured out the pull off the heads, the mac & cheese and lobster with a whole lobster in it, was scrumptious! The ribeye seasoned and prepared spot on. And the cream cheese spinach, if you like cream spinach this may well be The best you’ll ever find. This will definitely be a spot to return to for us as we visit in New York fourth/ five times a year.

We had two salads- the lobster Cobb and crab avocado. Both were good. And tasty.
