Very friendly servers. Knowledgeable about the menu. Relaxing ambience. The only advice I would offer would be extend the happy hour menu to Friday to bring in more traffic. We come every year and are always impressed by the extremely friendly service and high quality food. 10/10 would recommend.

Outdoor seating wasn’t warm enough to be comfortable and the waiter took an insufferably long time to bring out the check. Good food, but I would’ve enjoyed the experience better if the outdoor seating and service were of a higher caliber.

Beware of extra charges! They charged $14 instead of $11 for a glass of wine and they charges a few extra bucks for using a credit card, calling it a pandemic fee. on top of false prices. They also add suggested tip before tax, so I ended up feeling like I overpaid /got ripped off. Really left a sour taste in my mouth. Cost me $100 for 2 mediocre pasta dishes and 2 glasses of wine.

I'm sorry for the confusion. The $14 for the wine is our fault we've fixed it in our system and I'm happy to buy you a glass of wine for the mistake! We don't charge a pandemic fee, if you pay with a CC, we charge the CC fee to the customer. More businesses are doing this because recently it became legal to do so and it helped us tremendously to recover lost revenue. We do not ever add any tip pre tax or post tax. Tip is at the customers discretion so this was just a misunderstanding.

The food was great, not outstanding great, but good. However, we were seated at 8:15 and did not get our meals until 10:00pm. I was so hungry at that point I ate it so quickly I’m not sure I tasted it all.

T.he ambiance and service were perfect. The server was kind, prompt and served with concern for us. The first courses were superb. For the 2nd course the pork was perfect. The chicken was good but not amazing. The desert, tiramisu was excellent. All told it was a very good experience. The waiters suggestions were perfect.

Absolutely the best night, food, service and ambiance!
We really appreciated all the care the staff showed. Carbo overload but we’ll worth it. So many delicious drinks and food on the menu. Something for everyone. They took such great care of us even called us the next day to say one of the guests earrings after much effort was found. We really appreciate small business owners and will continue to support such a fantastic establishment!

It was a birthday dinner and the waiter never mentioned it- we had it listed in the reservation. The food was mediocre at best and wildly expensive for the quality. Would not go back.

This restaurant had a really cool vibe. It lives up to it's East Village location. The food was excellent and the service was great. The menu wasn't overwhelming but there was still an ample variety of choices. Great energy. I'd definitely recommend it.

My friend and I really enjoyed how relaxed and comfortable everything was at Tableside. It really felt like our home away from home. The food and drinks were delicious, but what really stood out was the service! Our server Don perfectly balanced being approachable and down to earth with detailed knowledge and quality service. We will definitely be back soon.
