What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.4

Once you get past the rigorous ID checking policy and the ridiculously wide bench seats that require a gymnastics routine to get in and out of...you are in for a treat. Spitzer's is home to some of the best bar food in the city.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

This venue has closed! I booked a reservation for 5 people last Sunday. When I arrived at the place a couple minutes early, it seems to be closed permanently... please research and remove from your platform if needed. This caused some issues for my group. Do not book Spitzer’s!

The restaurant literally did not exist anymore. It closed down months ago. How is it still on open table?

Food here was delicious and service was friendly and prompt! All different meals across the table, all excellent. I had the burger, friends had the ricotta pancakes (HUGE), chorizo omelet and salmon eggs Benedict. Also had a bloody Mary which was not too spicy (how I like it) and also had some delicious coconut rum drink. DIdn't have the coffee but it smelled great! Really spacious place too. I would absolutely go back.

Great beer selection, and nice atmosphere. The food could have been better, as the steak tasted a little fishy, as if it had been grilled or cut near seafood.

I made a reservation for Spitzers corner for my fiancé' 30th birthday celebration. I chose Spitzers because it's casual and has a good beer selection.

I had asked for the back room because we were going to be a large group. I was told upon arriving that another party took the room. The hostess said sorry in a disingenuous tone. Don't tell me I have a specific area if you're just going to randomly give it away, not sure what that was about. Rgardless our server was great and we had a good time chatting with friends.

We had a group of four and found it was just the right level of noise/energy - not boisterously loud but not quiet either; food was pretty good. The burgers were good, although I might advise against the fish and chips - fish was a bit greasy.

Service was very terrible, We had to ask for a food menu twice before getting it. We were constantly ignored throughout the night. The food was ok, hard time saying it was any better than the equivalent anywhere else.

We had a large table of 16 reserved for a birthday, a few of us were running a bit late. Josh (our server) was the best! He was so patient and nice the entire team. I'm sure it's not east to wait on a table of 16 on a Friday night in the LES and he did it flawlessly!!! Love the service.

This was a fine place to meet for food before listening to music. The friendly staff was very accommodating when it turned out our group was arriving in haphazard increments. The beer list is impressive with some interesting finds. The spinach dip was good (but not exactly spa cuisine), the fish and chips was perfectly fine. I liked the straightforward décor. It was very loud.

Spitzer's was good. It was hip and trendy and had a cool vibe and atmosphere which fit the Lower East Side. I thought the food was good, although a little pricey. For example, if you order a burger, you also have to order a side of fries. We had good service. It was a younger crowd. Cool place.

Several of us came here for brunch after running a half marathon. It was the perfect spot for great food and post-race drinks and I was very impressed that they held the table for us (we were running late due to post-race logistics and called, and the staff was extremely accommodating). Will definitely return!

Update: I got a call from the NYC dept of health saying this place was getting everyone sick after I made this review. I later, got sick.

Food was good, service was good. Front room is busy and loud since it's also a bar. So you have to talk a little loud but not painfully so.
