Private Dining

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.

Expensive, but the prix fixe business lunch is fine.

Bringing warm cookies around is a nice touch but awkward while diners are eating their appetizers. Seems like that should be orchestrated better if you're trying to create the warm fuzzies with diners.

We were looking for a restaurant for brunch on a Sunday prior to a show at Carnegie Hall. This place was great! Directly across the street and a real, authentic NY restaurant. I had crab cake eggs benedict and they were awesome. The brussels sprouts were great for the table. My only issue was our server was a bit in the weeds and we seemed to constantly have to find somebody to get our drinks, get the check, etc. Nevertheless, I would strongly recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant hits it on all burners; food, atmosphere and service. We went here after the theater(worth the walk or short ride) and for the second time once again we were treated to excellent service, relatively quiet atmosphere (no problem having a conversation) and very good quality food(Chilean sea bass, scrumptious hamburger and delicious banana cream pie for desert.) Our waiter, Craig, could not have been more knowledgeable, courteous and prompt.
Really, the place to go before or after being at Carnegie Hall or in our case going a little out of the way before or after Broadway theater

Redeye Grill has excellent food, attractively presented, in a spacious, handsome room--or outdoors, weather permitting. The staff is professional, friendly, and keeps a watchful eye to be alert to guests' needs. You can rely on a satisfying dining experience in a part of town with lots going on.

Had a reservation but had to wait almost 20 minutes for a table. Had a curtain and they did get me out in time to get to the performance. Had the table been ready it would not have been necessary to rush through the entree which was actually quite tasty and deserved to be savored; it was a quite imaginative and well-prepared dish. The wine by the glass is a bit pricey but not confiscatory.

Seamless pre-theater dinner with friends, great food and service, not cheap (though about normal for nice places in Midtown). One of our party was in a wheelchair and they made access to a great table very smooth, given that I had alerted the staff to this fact beforehand.

My out-of-town family members were staying nearby, so I arranged for Sunday brunch at the Redeye. The service by our waiter was exceptional. The food was very good and the variety of options was helpful for a diverse group of eaters. It's a lovely space and we had a wonderful family reunion there.

We have been coming to the Redeye for 20 years. We were very disappointed this visit. My husband could not finish his smoked salmon and eggs because it did not taste good. This has never happened at a restaurant or at home before. He also disliked the breakfast potato side dish. The crab and avocado salad was tasty, but the desert menu was filthy and the dark chocolate cake was too sweet-not worth the calories or the $12.50. We did not finish it.

The food was good, cooked very well. Service was very good. Our waiter was friendly, informative providing us with outstanding service. Both the salmon and Chilean seabass were cooked perfectly and sauce for each was quite good. My wife would have like a bit more of accompaniment with her salmon. I was fine with my portion. We split a crab cakes as an appetizer and it was good. Our shared desert was yummy, banana cream pie.

Once again I came to the Redeye with a friend before a performance at Carnegie Hall. The food was delicious, the service quite good, and we got to the concert on time. This time we had a booth, which was more conducive to conversation that we didn't particularly want to broadcast.

The wait staff was very accommodating. The food was delicious. The portions are huge. My friend and I shared an appetizer of fried calamari, which was absolutely delicious but so huge we didn't finish it. We wanted to save room for our mains. She had the Ahi Tuna Poke bowl, a very nice size and delicious. I had the Fish Tacos which came with guacamole, chips and a piece of roasted corn. They were so good. I just wish I had room to eat it all. We just had cappuccino for dessert.

I have eaten here in the past, and I was surprised about the quality of food we got. We had gotten the vegetable barley soup, and roasted chicken. The soup was salty, and the chicken was really really dry. We didnt finish it. For the money you pay to eat here, I would say it wasn't really worth it.

Had a wonderful Easter Brunch at the Redeye Grill with friends and family. Within our dining party was a pre-teen and a teenager and both were thrilled with the Easter candies set out in the table when we arrived. The never ending Mimosas and Bellinis were a huge hit and the brunch items were yummy. The best part of the whole meal was when they plopped a massive pink cotton candy plate in the middle of the table. I thought the kids had died and gone to heaven. It was a truly wonderful Easter brunch and I felt the restaurant took extra care to make it special for everyone. I will definitely be going back and will be highly recommending the place to everyone.
