The East Pole is always awesome! So sad it will stay closed until April 2021!! Can;’t wait to be back
Great service. Food was delicious and portion size was perfect.
Looking forward to a return visit.
Service was terrible. Food was just okay. Taking into consideration Covid circumstances I still would never go back.
Exceptional food and ambiance. Despite the chilly day and gorgeous leaves trickling down like snowflakes. The brioche French toast IS out of this world. Think and crispy on exterior, soft and vanilla infused inside. Steak and eggs also a great choice.
Friendly, cheerful, helpful service ~ Delicious from starters to dessert! Wonderful perch on second floor.
Bit pricey for what it is. Why is it when the waiter gives you the special they never mention the price.
My husband and I LOVE, LOVE East Pole!! All staff is extremely friendly, accommodating...providing service with a smile. We are fairly regular customers and the fact they always remember us and our names is the 'icing on the cake' and makes us feel like valued customers.
Additionally- Kelly (hostess) went above and beyond on Saturday....I was cold and she offered me her heater and repeated stopped by to make sure we were comfortable (who does that??). Look forward to my next visit!!
Food is good. Outdoor tables nice. Very good service
The sea bass and eggs Benedict were great. Small portions though. The place is lovely.
I hadn’t been out to dinner in months and we had the most lovely evening. We arrived early for our table and were able to have a martini while sitting on the restaurants beautiful stoop!
We then sat at our pretty table and had a delicious meal of oysters, salmon tartare, steak and risotto as well as excellent wine. Our charming waiter Brian was so attentive and also made the evening lots of fun. I highly recommend an evening out here!
Great food and service.
loved that avocado toast with scrambled eggs love sitting outside on the sidewalk on a street with beautiful townhouses was lovely !
I am so happy East Pole is open! This has been one of my favorite spots for so long and I also LOVED Eastfield's. Super cute layout outside and the entire staff is so kind and welcoming. Brian was my server. HES AMAZING. My guest and I loved our cocktails ( we both had the Citrus and Smoke) my favorite is the salmon tartare!! i highly recommend. The manager was super nice and totally recognized us from pre covid and made a point to send a round of drinks which was awesome!!!! Really just an awesome experience from start to finish. Can't wait to come back!!
Charming, delicious, and attentive staff. I highly recommend the fish, wild boar ragu, and burger entrees. Everything is cooked perfectly and tastes very fresh and healthy. The new Covid outdoor seating is enhanced with charming candles, lanterns, and umbrellas.
service was excellent ; food was very good and ambience was good, altho a lilttle noisy but it couldn't be helped since it was outside.
Small servings. Food was okay, forgettable.
Staff was amazing!! Food was so good!
Great every time, best tasting restaurant
Great food and great service.
Their outdoor dining set up is great! spaced out and comfortable!
Excellent service ! Delicious food with a beautiful presentation.
Not everyone can pull this level of excellence off during a pandemic but this place nails it
They ambiance sitting outside on a cross street was lovely, however there were several loud drive bys with loud music booming which was annoying .... the waiter took a bit long to take our order but the food was pretty good ...
Excellent service and food. Outdoor seating lovely, tables widely spaced and extremely attentive staff. We're planning to go back very soon!
Weekend brunch during covid ... once the restaurant’s delivery truck left, as it left the engine on while making deliveries, noise was minimal ... service was lovely, with a server who was almost entertaining. ... and the tables were very well spaced, unlike some of the neighboring restaurants that in this covid climate are uncomfortably close.
Have eaten there a lot (but pre-covid) and have generally enjoyed. Post-Covid outdoor dining seemed to have potential, but food was borderline unacceptable and service was also slow and inattentive.
Maybe just an off day, but I am not certain I would go back anytime soon.
The service was great, the burrata, halibut and burger were exquisite and Th e ambiance was lovely. Can’t wait to be able to go inside!
our server was amazing!!
Server was excellent—super sweet very attentive. Food was glorious. Outdoor seating in a very nice block (there’s a two house next door going for $22.5 million lol) was a warm day which they had more umbrellas but beyond that a great lunch.
This is an awesome restaurant, and they have gone above and beyond in the time of COVID. Drinks were great, food was awesome, and we felt comfortable and safe. They have done about as much as I can imagine to make you feel like it is an upscale dining experience and also make you feel safe being there. We will definitely return.
One of the best value spots on the UES. All around great.
Brian was a great server.
At least they are operating outdoor dining. Inside is better ambience!
So glad east pole is finally back open! They have done a great job with outdoor seating and handled an unexpected down pour very well! Plus as always the food, drinks and service are A+. I highly recommend!
Overpriced and ridiculously small servings The pasta entree was the size of a tapas plate. Food was generally tasty. Drinks were outrageously priced even by NYC standards.
Our group of 6 enjoyed a delicious, leisurely dinner in the quieter upstairs!
Nice food and place but a bit too pricey
Table was far too small for the five guests we had, even though the restaurant knew we were coming because I made a reservation secured by a credit card.
Met a girlfriend of mine at the bar for some drinks and a quick bite, good service, great vibe and excellent food. We got the calamari and steak tartare which was incredible
i love the fresh vegetables. The food is great. The staff is friendly and welcoming
Wait time for entrees very long.
Quality of food is OK.
