The Eddy Ratings and Reviews
We had a terrific meal at The Eddy, which is on that block of Sixth Street in the East Village that used to be one Indian restaurant after another. Times change. The food at The Eddy is well-prepared, delicious, and smart without being clever.
Fantastic tasting menu with accompanying wine menu. The service was great with flexibility to make smaller changes in the menu according to allergies etc. We were a large group of 8 and had a great time:) Will defenitily come here again.
The waiter was super nice and he and the chef managed to accommodate my dietary needs. Food was delicious.
The reason I would not recommend it is because people barely fit in. Tables are so close to each other it feels you have a table of four instead of just your date. You can hardly move even if you want to go to the restroom.
Too bad because food was very good
My partner and I took my parents to a dinner at The Eddy, and it was so lovely! We shared all of the appetizers from the a la carte menu and each ordered a different entree, plus a dessert. Everything was cooked perfectly with surprising, fresh combinations -- I would recommend it all. Most of all, we could hear each other talk without having to strain our voices and the staff was incredible, not only knowledgeable and warm, but also gracious, allowing us to meander through our meal over the course of three plus hours. Thank you for a wonderful evening! We will be back!
Very nice and quite restaurant. The food was delicious. The portions are quite small, a main meal won't be enough, get at least the menu ( this is normal though for gastronomical restaurant)
I recommand for a date, special occasion or drinks with friends ( cocktails are very good!)
All was great except for the wine recommendation. We clearly described our preference for a big bold red wine and were brought a light rose tho wine at a price of $85. We hated the wine and a light rose type wine for me is a $20 bottle. (Which we don't drink anyway). No apologies, and they did not take it back so ....
Other than that, food was exceptional as is ambiance.....
Creative drinks and food - wonderful service (we arrived early for our reservation and were seated right away, despite not being a full group, adjusted to food issues easily, unobtrusive otherwise.) It is a small space, and we were the largest group there (6) but it felt more convivial than crowded. Portions are NOT large, but if you order enough appetizers (2 of some items), it should be fine. We were feeding young men in their early 20s who may have gone out for ice cream afterwards...Loved the chicken liver mousse, shared the chicken and the steak, which were also delicious. We'll go back.
I go to New York every few months and always try to get to the Eddy. Stumbled onto the restaurant when I was staying in the neighbourhood some years ago, and am so glad I did. I always try to share both sides of the tasting menu with whoever I'm with, and it's always terrific, and terrific value. The wine pairing is highly recommended. The Eddy has a lovely atmosphere that makes it perfect for either a romantic dinner or dining with friends. It's in a great neighbourhood, and while the restaurant plays good music, it's always quiet enough for good conversation. Highly recommended!
We've enjoyed several meals at The Eddy in the past but, under new Executive Chef, Jeremy Salamon, this fine restaurant is reaching new heights. Building on its commitment to fine ingredients and creative preparation, he has brought some exciting new ideas to The Eddy menu. Notable is the Hungarian influence he has brought, reflecting his family heritage. Plus: Superb bar and a staff that is friendly but not overly so. We'll be back there soon.
Second time was a great as the first! This is my favorite spot in the East Village for casually elegant dining. The Eddy is small, with a full bar serving "handcrafted" cocktails in intimate rooms. The food is somehow earthy and delicate at the same time. Delightful. Thoughtful and inventive. Of course we'll be back.
Waitress was amazing. Greeted us warmly, was honest about a recent change in the restaurant's executive chef, and made great recommendations for each of our three courses.
Food was amazing. Fresh full of flavor and perfectly cooked.
Eddy is very expensive for what you get. VERY limited menu and a lot of hype. Tasting menu is $75 per person - with wine and tip your walking away with a $250 tab and still hungry. We came home after dinner and both started to snack. My wife wanted to go to Eddy for her birthday and we felt ripped off. The place is very small (maybe 15 tables) no table cloths. Reverse chic to say the least. Food was well prepared but get prepared for small portions. Service was good, however, I set it up before to have a birthday candle in my wife's desert but neglected do it. Not a big deal but a quality restaurant should think about details. BTW, not like it was busy or anything- we went Saturday night and more than half the tables were empty.
We had a valedictory tasting menu from the departing chef, Brendan McHale, who will be departing for Eau Claire, WI, shortly. The 5 course meal was delightful at every turn, and the inviting ambiance of the restaurant, in addition to warm and receptive staff at the restaurant, will certainly see us visit again. Congrats to everyone working at The Eddy for a meal that will be well remembered.
Blown away. My BF and I have been wanting to go here for a while, and it somehow exceeded our already high expectations. It was cozy, romantic, inviting, delicious elevated food, great service, not too crowded or noisy and totally worth the price. We got the tasting menu and were surprised that we loved everything that we tasted. I cannot recommend this higher!
We were celebrating my son's birthday; I had told them when I booked. They had put a little birthday card on our table when we arrived (what a nice attention!). We had a lovely time. The service was impeccable, everyone was friendly and helpful. We had the five-course tasting menu, which was really appealing and delicious. Portions were just the right size. Presentation was very nice. Wine by the glass list was interesting. We never felt rushed. The restaurant is small so the tables are very close to each other, but it was not a problem for us, as people around were quiet. We had a great time and I'm looking forward to going back!
Although seating is cramped and the tiny space is loud, The Eddy is nonetheless cozy with authentic character, good service, and inventive cuisine. The two of us went for the dinner "tasting" menu because it featured sea food. We were blown away by the flavor and texture pairings along with the delicate, artful presentation of each course. The panna cotte dessert topped with watermelon had the most sublime texture, hint of cardamon (and lavender?), and a finishing salt that was deftly applied to heighten and meld all the complex flavors in a way that was truly marvelous! Dinner was everything we hoped it would be. Expensive, but worth the experience.
I had read great reviews about this place and surely wasn't disappointed. The space was small and intimate, not too dark. The tables were a little too close to one another, but this is the East Village.
Two of us ordered:
- beef tendon puffs: I'd seen a lot of reviews on this dish and wondered throughout the whole time with what kind of sorcery they had turned beef tendons into those puffs, but this dish was slightly too salty to my taste.
- grilled oysters: oyster themselves were very fresh and not dry from being overcooked
- uni toasts: my favorite among the three snack dishes that were on the menu.
- tuna dish
- lamb loin & belly: loved it. The loin was moist and without the pungent smell that lamb can have when cooked poorly, and the belly was very moist and rich. The vegetables on the side were also cooked perfectly and had a great texture and flavor that complemented the meat well.
The first three were bite-sized dishes, the tuna a slightly bigger appetizer plate, and the lamb a main dish. We also ordered drinks (corpse reviver and old fashioned) that we both loved.
The Eddy is a small, discreet place but the food, the drinks, the service--is huge. I have now had 3 amazing meals here all with the most fantastic drinks. I love coming here just for a drink and snack too as the bar area is so fun and the bartenders are true craftsmen without being posers. well most of them anyway.
I'd been to the Eddy a couple of years ago for nibbles at the bar where a very busy bartender was making the most fantastic looking cocktails. I had the puffed beef tendons that night and loved them. Of course, we had them again last night -- so good. Crunchy with smoked trout roe, dill cream and scallion ashes which look cool on the plate.
I fell hard for the apple salad which I initially ignored because it sounded very British and like hippy food, but it was delicious. A smear of very tasty and salty almond butter topped with a tumble of juicy apples, razor-sharp cheddar, radish, whole grain mustard with tarragon leaves. Like a Ploughman's lunch reimagined.
The steak was nicely crusted -- loved the woven presentation and I actually liked the charred lettuce. It was refreshing.
Fluke and scallop dishes were well executed but didn't stir up the emotions that the apple salad dish. Both were much more subtle.
The service was very learned and gracious. I asked for the food to come fast and it flew out of the kitchen. This was very much appreciated since we were in a rush.
I spied the tasting menu at a few tables around us -- because I'm nosy -- and it looked very generous.
I ordered a cocktail that I found too sweet and too strong, but that was my mistake. I'll be back to try the other ones.
