You know you're in New York when you dine af this restaurant for all seasons, with a terrific ambience, superb cuisine and wines the Regency is fit for foodies or family celebrations. The live jazz on Friday evening make it a go-to favorite to start the weekend.

My daughter, her friend and I checked into the Loews hotel and decided to have a late lunch. Big mistake. The menu was for brunch (3:00 on a Saturday?) so it was somewhat limited although the menu descriptions looked appealing. My daughter ordered a hamburger and her friend an omelet. I tried the chicken with waffles. My daughter's burger was inedible. The omelet was acceptable but my dish was basically chicken fingers with waffles, very overdone, looked like a child's item. The service was pleasant although our waiter disappeared after he served us so getting water was a challenge. I was mainly disappointed with our overall experience. For $100 for a "quick" bite, my expectations were certainly higher.

Creative cuisine featuring crispiest calamari, terrific tuna tartare tacos, best bolongnese, and superb simple grilled menu. Sommelier sure knows his wines! Something for everyone in this festive find! Great for any celebration! Live jazz in Friday's made us feel as though we were in a Woody Allen movie!

We went to this place after we saw an article about it on a magazine. They took forever to greet us at the table and also to serve us. I actually had to ask if we had a waiter/waitress. I ordered the lobster roll which came cold and it wasn't that tasty at all. My friend had the eggs Benedict and also felt like it tasted plain. The fruit bowl and the yogurt was good and had a cute presentation. Lots of older people too, not that it matters to me but it might to some. I will not be coming back to this place only because there is nothing special about it.

The entrance of the hotel looks great but the reception doesn't look that happy to welcome guests for the restaurant, whereas the hostesses are great.! They are nice, smiling, willing to help. The table was nice and the food very appreciable. We had the healthy breakfast, and the plates were perfect. But the service was really behind. The restaurant was empty but full of staff doing nothing. No communication. We asked for some gluten free bread which got on the table 10 minutes before the plates. No follow up at the table. That's a pity because it could have been so much nicer... We had a great time together anyway, thanks to the hostesses and the kitchen.!

We came for Christmas dinner - restaurant was freezing, asked to make it warmer 4 separate times and the air conditioning was never turned down. Also, almost an hour lapsed between appetizers and mains. Food and ambiance were good but honestly our party felt forgotten about and would never return.

Meeting a friend for lunch here, we had a completely inattentive and disinterested waiter. Classic case of shoddy treatment of women dining together -- which happens too often in places that are not savvy enough to realize we are the best tippers when the service is good. I ordered something well done that came out under cooked; part of her order never arrived even though we asked five different people to please check on it. A manager finally brought it at the end of the meal with the excuse that they were having some problems with the order system getting to the kitchen - How about walking back in and just getting it after the third time we asked? Our original waiter was never seen again. The manager who finally brought it took a small percentage off the bill......but we won't be back. The Regency may have snazzed up the place but the service is worse than when it used to be the tired old Power Breakfast spot.

The service was extremely slow. We ordered drinks when our entrees came out, and the drinks were brought to the table after we finished eating the main course. Also, it was a birthday, so the desert should have come with a candle, as asked. Instead the server said they were doing something special, which would be right out. Right out turned out to be 15 minutes later, when they brought over a peanut butter flavored desert. Problem was, the birthday girl cannot eat peanut butter. The server and manager were not apologetic at all.

We were disappointed at being overlooked and under attended to by staff who were very clearly focused on the business community popping in for breakfast. The menu was not fully explained, drink orders were not until we had been sitting looking around for almost 15 minutes. Food service was average and we felt we were taking the spot of some 'more important' guests. With empty cups sitting there for extended periods, not once were we offered more drinks or even asked if we would like to order anything more.

The recent face lift to The Regency doesn't hide the history of power meals that have taken place in its well run, perfectly menu-ed dining room. The new fixtures have made the room feel relevant, but the familiar faces on the staff and solidly prepared go-to food items maintain The Regency Bar and Grill as a must when on the Upper East Side.

The restaurant is beautiful, and of course known to be a power breakfast scene, so I was so excited to love lunch, and it just missed. The service was really quite friendly, but I was a bit confused because we were approached by two main waiters. Also, I was wavering between two options and ended on the Caesar Salad with Shrimp based on the waiter's recommendation and it just wasn't good. Overdressed to the point of limp lettuce, shrimp was totally blah. My dining companion had the Nicoise Salad, which he really enjoyed, although they said the tuna would be raw (I think they meant rare) and it was cooked medium, but he still really enjoyed the salad. As a pointer - they don't bring bread unless you ask, but do ask! The crisp bread is good. In summary - at the lunch price point, I expected more, but it wasn't terrible, just order better than I did.

The Power Breakfast and Power Lunch at The Regency is part of the old legends of the Upper East Side and when the hotel was recently renovated and the restaurant closed for such a long time, one worried that this mystique would be lost -- but it has not. The staff is extremely charming and very attentive and the food is delicious. Welcome back to the UES Regency and wish you many, many years of continued success.

This was our first visit back since the hotel reopened post renovation. We've always been fans of the Regency but we were sorely disappointed.The service was dreadful. We were moved from one high traffic table to another with the wait staff racing past us. Our sommelier was curt and cranky, the wait staff was yelling to each other over our heads, and literally plunked our meals down in front of us, serving the wine, bread and salad all at once with zero finesse. Unless you're seared against the wall you're sure to get jostled. What a shame considering the Regency Bar and Grill was such a delight in the past. We won't be back.

The Bar & Grill is newly renovated and lovely. Tables are spacious and far apart, the décor is modern and fresh. We all had the same thing - the Joan's salad - which was delicious. However, ask for it chopped! We learned. The way it is served is all "clumpy", meaning big chunks of sliced chicken breast, one whole avocado sliced, etc. However, it was very tasty. At $32, it's not inexpensive for a salad, but these are hotel prices, after all.

Not quite as good as before redo. Room has lost a bit of warmth (though very pretty).
Food also not quite as good as before....missing something though difficult to put
ones finger on it. Perhaps the word would be finesse.
Nonetheless, great location and serves a good purpose both for the guests and neighborhood.

Lunched there with a friend two days ago and the experience was marred by inattentive service. Drinks ordered had to requested three times. Water was not refilled. It took three trips to bring entrees and appropriate condiments. Then the waiter simply disappeared. After waiting 30 minutes for the check I finally flagged a hostess. Then it took another 25 minutes. Annoyingly the restaurant does not have designated rest rooms. You are compelled to go through the lobby and down a hall. Lunch came to over$100 for 2 soft drinks,2 coffees, a burger and salad with chicken. The food itself was nondescript. In Manhattan there are just so many better options.
