Delicious Easter brunch. We had the luxurious eggs benedict and a braised lamb shank that was falling off the bone. We also loved the fresh squeezed juices for the mimosas.

Cozy little dining room in a quiet East Side neighborhood. The menu is limited but imaginative, and we enjoyed our meal. This is a "no tipping" restaurant, which may explain why service was at the low end of ordinary. Recommended.

Sutton Inn is a sparkling gem of a restaurant. The food was sublime and robust, delicate and yet full of flavor. All staff where completely attentive and yet unobtrusive. I would definitely recommend coming here for more than a special occasion.

ニューヨークではあまりリピートしたくなるレストランはないのですが、こちらは落ち着いていておすすめです。割りと年齢層高めのお客さんが多いような気がします。アメリカン料理には珍しく、ノーチップ制です。

As good as the food was and always is, our waitress was horrible. From the faces she made every time she walked away from the table, to servers not knowing who got what food or drink (we had to call them back as they walked away with food). Then there was the creepiness of her standing there while we settled the bill amongst ourselves. This was the only time she was attentive!

A wonderful informal neighborhood restaurant. The creative chef offers a good choice of menu items and service is pleasant. There are both prix fixe and a la carte menus and all prices include the gratuity. When crowded, the noise level is high and the service deteriorates.

Very delicious dinner! All of the ingredients were first-rate and excellently prepared. The combination of ingredients in the salad was interesting, and very tasty. The highlight was the fish, both Arctic Char and Cod, which were very carefully prepared, excellent quality and really good!

Romantic.....intimate...expert presentation of every dish. We have spent the last three Valentines Day wknds here @ The Sutton Inn and will return every year thereafter. Each menu selection we have tried over three annual visits have been carefully curated and executed, most recently w/ Scott's beet soup ( and I really do not care for beets at all but I was curious how Scott would create this soup). It was on par w/ previously tried potato/leek soup and last years pumpkin/squash soup. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her risotto as well.

Three minor suggestions... please play the Miles/Coltrane music from our first visit in 2017....institute some semblance of a dress code for the men i. e. @ least a washed tshirt not slept in and lower the price per pint of take home ice cream to $10 -12; what we brought back to our midtown suite was not worth $15/pint. Again only minor points that in no way diminished our dining experience nor our annual rekindling of our 30+ yr romance.

Great food, ambience & service - one of us had Prix Fixe and the other off of the menu - everything was delicious and the Cod was a highlight.

We also appreciate this is a no-tipping restaurant - makes prices that much more reasonable for the quality, and more importantly to the experience - we knew who our wait person was, and every member of the staff was paying attention without being intrusive.

We have been here several times and have not been disappointed. I had the Arctic Char and my wife had the Sea Bass. Both excellent as was the baby bok choy side. After we had the 3 scoops of ice cream/sorbet of our choice which finished off a fine meal. Our waiter and staff were extremely friendly and attentive. We will continue to return.

A very nice restaurant in a very comfortable brownstone on East 54th just off of First Avenue.

Nice crowd. Very good food. Service that works, but could be a bit more attentive.

A very nice choice if you are looking for a delicious lunch or dinner in a very comfortable setting.
