I have been going to another diner close by for a few years and decided to go to 7A this past weekend just for something different. The omelette I had was amazing as were the home fries. Coffee was great, it was really really a nice breakfast. I will be going there in the future!

Overall, 7A is a fine place to eat. That's it, though, just fine. It's nothing spectacular. The menu isn't terribly original or varied, but the food they have is good enough. We had nachos for 2, which come with ginormous heapings of sour cream, guacamole, and refried beans. They didn't have enough cheese or salsa, though, and because everything was on top, we were left with a big pile of dry chips at the end. I had the grilled vegetable sandwich for my meal, with a salad. Salad was good, nice dry crisp greens, and perfectly cut cucumbers with no seeds. Lots of them, too, which I love. The balsamic viniagrette was on the side, which I also like, and was good, but not could have used a little more on the balsamic side and a little less oil. The sandwich was really good, though could have used a little more pesto. My friend I was with had the ravioli romano. It was good, but if you tell me that's pesto sauce, I'll tell you the sun is purple. It was olive oil with some chopped basil. Good (I sampled), but not pesto. As for the restaurant itself, it was really honkin' loud. We were practically sitting on the people next to us and couldn't hear a word they said ever (not a bad thing, necessarily) because it was so loud. I felt like I had to shout at the waiter to place our order. The service is average. He wasn't horrible, but he wasn't great either. In his defense, there got to be a lot of people there shortly after we sat down, and he was pretty much the only person doing table service. The thing that annoyed me most about the whole experience, though, is that when we walked in, there were about six empty tables. The two people in front of us got to sit at a larger square table, but we were smooshed into this tiny round little two-person (I use that term liberally) bar table by the window. View was nice, table was too small. With tons of other open larger tables, why was it necessary to stick us at a crap table? Anyway, it was good enough food that I'd probably eat there again (or maybe order takeout). Plus, they have Newcastle on draft, and that is almost enough for me to give them 5s on all categories!

I actually order delivery from here quite a bit, The food is substantial, tasty and well prepared. I have had meals at the restaurant and found the waitstaff to be many things, none of which are enjoyable. I will continue to order delivery but a vist to the actual restaurant, nah.

7A is a great place to take friends. The food is good and they have things for all people, especially people who are watching their figure or on a diet. Try it! It's inexpensive and the value is good.

7A is the best delivery around - I've never actually eaten there due to the "scene" of supposed 'east villagers' in residence. I instead always get delivery to my long time E village address. Food is always good and delivery prompt. But nicely, lately the people staff what have you that have been answering the phones and taking orders have been super nice and helpful. Today I got delivery and the guy taking the order actually gave me butterflies in my stomach and I'm not that kind of girl usually . . . Good phone + good food = Goodtimes

7A is great. The value is out of hand; their chicken specials (my favorite is the chicken marsala or chicken with shitake mushrooms, I wish they'd add both to the menu) are an amazing value and when they have filet mignon, it's amazing. The delivery guy is absurdly fast and extremely nice. The servers, however, are a bit inconsistent---one time a girl who was taking my order kept asking me not to bother with placing an order because of the "long wait"...not good for business...All in all, this is the best value in the East Village for a nice dinner.

I've been to 7a for both brunch and dinner. Both were wonderful, but I must say that the brunch was out of this world. The french toast is wonderful and cheap. They have more stuff on the menu at the restaurant (as in brunch specials) you can get a drink (incl. alcoholic) and brunch for 9.95 or a la cart. A must for sunday morning.
