My friend and I stopped here yesterday for a lite lunch after some shopping. Cute place, I had the Tuscan Bread Salad and my friend had Mediterranean Vegatable soup which was good. Wine is a bit pricey we thought but overall nice experience, I would go back if in the area again. We did get waited on quickly and food was brought out prompty as well.

My son made me take him here after having passed it by for ten years.I cannot imagine a circumstance that would compell either of us o return.The service was at best indifferent, the bread actually good, the meal borderline and the prices completely out of line with any place in the neighborhood. Topping it off was a clientele that may actually be more vapid than the women on "The Real New York Housewives". If this restaurant was an airline I would change flights just to avoid it.

This place has perfectly fine food, but service is sometimes surly, and the place is noisy. The astronomical prices are really what sets it apart. After having lived in the neighborhood for the last 20 years, I would recommend skipping the dining experience but consider phoning in orders for their excellent gift baskets.

On a whim a friend and I thought we'd try the place out for brunch. OVERPRICED, very little selection of "brunch" food, and it was not worth the price.

If eating food that is strictly medicore in a loud, packed-in- like-rats surrounding, served by hostile and arrogant individuals, with two restrooms each roughly the size found on the average commuter jet cleaned at some point in the last two weeks is appealing to you, then by all means head to E.A.T. While eating a soggy, country sandwich for $15.00 per 'sandwich plate' you can grovel for a glass of water from a wait staff that appears to believe that you are there to please them. Bring your earplugs too, because the acoustics are such that no matter how few people are present, you will not be able to effectively communicate with your party. However, if you'd lke to get the attention of a stranger at near-by table, just pick up your fork and give them a simultaneous elbow in the ribs. Is this the best that the Upper East Side can offer ? If so, get a dog and water in the park.

Over the top prices for run of the mill soup, salad and sandwiches. Yes the food tastes quite good....but at these prices you are looking for an eating experience that is extra ordinary.....it's not! $10.00 for a bowl of soup, $10.00 for a plate of lentil salad and $14.00 to 18.00 for a salami and cheese sandwhich on a crusty baguette and a scoop of pretty good potato salad which, when shared between two, was barely sufficient to satisfy us. Possibly the high rent district of Madison Avenue requires the owner to charge excessively for the dining experience....so move off Madison and find an alternative restaurant where you can enjoy a similar eating experience without the heartburn created from the high cost.

Worth it for the carrot soup and its accompanying bread alone. Delicious! I wish everything was so tasty ... Their steak is expensive and so-so, the onion rings it comes with can't seem to hold on to their batter, and their brownies are bland. Good, but could be so much better. (Still ... excellent hot chocolate, with large, yummy marshmallow!)
