I would go to this place @ anytime of the day. But, the fact that is open 24/7, really endears this place to my heart. A wonderful place with an extensive menu for meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike...Comfort food in a cute atmosphere with lots of people watching. I highly recommend it!

7A is a restaurant I can always count on for a good, inexpensive meal. Everything I've ever had on the menu has been great, and it's never scary to try something new there. However, most of the servers I've had are not good at all. Even if they are pleasant and attentive in the beginning, as soon as they serve your food it takes like 20 minutes to get the bill. Nevertheless, I find myself there all the time!

Despite having a bad experience my first time there, this is a solid place for sunday brunch and sidewalk dining. Great place for people watching. Get there early though.

I have been to 7a countless times, the place gives you what it advertises, a diner with a sit back and relax atmosphere, the place is great it go after a night on the town cause its open 24/7. The last time I was there was quite recently, I was catching up with some old friends from college, reminiscing about old times. This is the kind of place you can do that in.

I've been to 7A on a regular basis back when I used to live in the city. It was always a hot spot. Crowded, loud and opened 24 hr. Now that i moved to Brooklyn, I stopped going there for a while. However, just went there the other night and I got to say.. WOW! WHAT A CHANGE! 7A was always known for it's good, affordable and consistant food. Plus you have this wonderful location on the corner of A & 7th street where you can really watch the action from the comfortable inside of the restaurant with it's big surrounding windows. I read some of the reviews posted on this site, and I had to agree with some of the things I read. Yes, the food id great! But the service was lacking and inconsiderate. Music was always playing too loud. But... Have you been to 7A lately? The food was amazing! I had the snapper special. What a delight! And the service.... it was the best service I ever got in the lower east side! And I used to live there up till not along time ago. The waiter was attentive but not pushy. They obviously put a new stereo system which made it possible to hold a conversation at our table. The restrooms which were notoriously small have been modified which allows you easier access than ever before. (and it was so clean too!) I got to say, I was amazed! 7A.. GOOD FOR YOU GUYS! GOOD JOB! Definitely coming back and now can even consider bringing a romantic date over.

7A has been a favorite of my boyfriend and I for a long time. We come in to Manhattan from Brooklyn all the time to eat dinner there. Our favorite night is Sunday evening -- much less crowd to deal with. The burgers are huge and wonderful, vegetarian burger sandwich is also really good (served on french bread, not soggy bun). Bruch is also really great with huge portions for a nice price. I definitely recommend this place especially when you have friends or family in town and you want a menu for everyone that's affordable.

The brunch here is one of my favorites in the E. Village based on quality, quantity, and value - two people can eat full meals with dessert for less than $30 - but the service is poor. I have almost never seen the same hostess twice, understandable because they have been incompetent. Empty tables, merciless crowding, and a longish wait. The tables are very crowded together and the many times I have been there they have always seemed understaffed - no or forgotten water and coffee refills, impossible to get the attention of the waitstaff. The bartender and the manager are awesome though - service at the bar is great if you can deal with the crowded barstools. Have the French toast with rum butter or the fritatta which is served with a serious side salad and English muffin - and their key lime pie is one of the best in the neighborhood. Finally, vegetarians and meat eaters can eat at the same place without making any food compromises.
