    I have been a semi regular customer. I have no idea what happened to this perfect gem. Some of our food was over cooked, while others it was under cooked. I am surprised at the meal my friends and I were served. Sorry but I will not be going back.

    poor experience

    I had dinner there on 9/6/12. The food was cold and rather tasteless. the salad was left with very large pieces of greens. The waitress was totally inappropriate, busy playing with a patron's child. Will never go there again.

    Neighborhood gem - thank you EE Kitchen!

    East End Kitchen is luckily for me right in my neighborhood. It is so good though that I would recommend anyone traveling if they want high end, New American food (the fish is particularly good) at reasonable prices in a restful setting. They also have a kids menu that offers delicious chicken fingers and mac n cheese (among other items) which is a major bonus. We are now regulars, going almost weekly for one reason or another, each time trying a different dish and every time being absolutely pleased with the food quality/value ratio. It is such a pleasure to have a non-Italian, non-Asian elegant restaurant on the UES. Thank you East End Kitchen for doing what you do - we are so grateful!!

    Great Experience

    We finally tried East End Kitchen...I was a bit nervous since some of the reviews were poor, but I am very happy to say we had a lovely evening on Wednesday night. The food was great, the service was attentive and the atmosphere was just lovely. This is a great neighborhood spot, and we look forward to returning.

    Could be, should be so much better.

    Weekday lunch, 5 tables occupied, took 30 mins to get a sandwich and salad. No apologies, server checked in with us once. I can be patient if there is an amazing meal at the end of a long wait. Sadly, the food was mediocre, at best. Grilled chicken on cesar was unseasoned and dry. Sandwich could have been put together at home by my 10 yr old with 4 store bought ingredients. The "homemade chips" they are so proud about were oily, soggy , unseasoned and even the natural potato flavor was burnt out of them. I am waiting for this place to shut down so I can take it over and make this place what it could be and should be: a neighborhood gem.

    Great Find

    So I happened upon this little restaurant on my way to walk along the East River... so I headed back for dinner on Sunday night. The crowd was thin but I chose to sit at the bar and ordered the mussels with fries, didn't take advantage of the Sunday special mussels that comes with a beer and instead opted for wine. The bartender let me taste 2 kinds before I made my decision, he made two great recommendations. Good food, good service.

    sunday night

    Went here for the Sunday night $15 specials. Burger/fries or fish/chips or mussels/fries & a beer. Good value. Burgers and fish were good. Could have been a little more generous with the fries and fish. Place filled up early on Sunday night by 6:30pm. Wait staff is very nice but seems a little confused, especially when the place gets crowded. They also need to move the furniture around. Large parties in the center of the space make moving impossible for guests and staff.
