I've been to 44 & X a few times over the past few years, and it has gone downhill. We went to 44 1/2 (which is affiliated with 44 & X) when it first opened and loved it. My suggestion: If you're going to go all the way over to 10th ave, go to 44 1/2...the food is just as good (if not better), but the service is far superior with a much more inviting ambiance.

Short and sweet: too expensive for what it is!

When we went there a few years ago it was a great place, but now not so much anymore. Not only did they change the comfortable wooden outdoor furniture to flimsy dirty white chairs and tables, but the service is lacking and the food is less than great. To top it off, prices are high for what you get. Now we won't go there again, although we live just a few blocks away. :(

When this restaurant opened in 2000, the food was great, and well priced. The chef has since left, and the prices have shot up. Service is still poor, the flowers are still fresh, but the food is not great. Definitely not worth the price. They need some serious overhaul in this place. Hire a chef, uncomplicate the menu, and rethink the $14 dollar hamburger.

I try eating at this restaurant every couple of months, in hopes that it'll get better. The service staff, though nice, don't really know what they're doing! Ask about wines on their wine list and you'll draw a blank stare from a dumbfounded server ("...it's been a while since our wine tasting", was the excuse). Take one bite out of crispy oyster salad, finding a bad oyster and everyone dodges your table until you give up trying to return it. Late evening hostess will ask you to move while you're dining at the bar, so that her large group of friends can be served and she can eat.

This is a very friendly, chic place with really delicious food. The short ribs are amazing, and the choc. souflee is so dark and velvety, I've actually dreamed about it. I love the bright atmosphere, fresh flowers (and gorgeous restroom). Not to mention reasonable prices and proximity to B'way theaters. Highly recommended.

The food here was awesome. The mac and cheese was to die for. Not too rich just sheer perfection. We had all steaks and they were deliciious. Highly recommend.
