    Tourist trap

    I don't understand how this place continually makes "best brunch" lists. The food is trendy and just not that good. A sweet potato pancake is supposed to be a pancake made with sweet potatoes, right? Not their's! What arrived were sweet potato french fries entwined into shape of disc. There was no "cake" involved here. I dont care what new fusion or trendy spin you are going to do with foods but it should have been the waiter's job to inform us that it wouldnt be a "pancake" in the traditional sense. He did not. As result he got what he deservedlousy tip! I end up having to make returns to this place either because of friends who are out of town heard it was good or because of people who prefer trendy food over food that is actually good. This is a must avoid if you prefer to eat rather than impress with foods that are "works in progress."

    Legit

    I've been twice and have had a fantastic time on each occasion. My mother visited town so my girlfriend and I took her to Eatery before a play. No reservation, we were seated in 10 minutes despite it being crowded. Absolutely delicious brunch, maybe my favorite in the city other than Cafe D'Alsace on the UES. I especially recommend the green eggs and ham, it's a very fun dish. From then on I thought of it only as a brunch place until last night...Casellula was too crowded so we tried Eatery's dinner menu. Again no reservation, we were seated in 15 minutes. The coconut shrimp and the quesadilla were both perfect starters for our group of 4, and they were very good. The entrees came literally as the appetizers were being taken off the table, along with a second round of drinks. I ate the famers market pasta, which is a different dish each night and I would have licked the plate if it were socially acceptable. I also tried some of my girlfriend's scallops which were equally good...perfectly cooked and seasoned, with a linguine that complimented them very nicely. As for the cocktails, reasonable for a restaurant and the barkeep gives a nice long pour on the liquor. After reading some of the bad reviews I wonder if they went to the same restaurant I did! My waitress was fun, sociable, made some great recommendations and kept the drinks coming in a timely manner...plus, she never tried to upsell. I usually like trying new places, but I'll never hesitate to come back here for a meal.

    Never again

    Used to come here for brunch beacuse of the exciting atmosphere and very good menu items (especially the salads). After returning last week, NEVER AGAIN. Waiters trying to upsell to every person in my party, sounding like mechanical robots. The atmosphere from the staff is desperate and forced. Off to discover the rest of the neighborhood...

    Disappointing

    My boyfriend and I ate here for Sunday brunch and don't care to return. Both of our dishes were completely bland. My grits were undercooked and unsalted. The only good part was the sausage because it was made somewhere else we guessed. The bloody mary was $12 for a small glass - way too much for a cheap brunch. The funny thing was, the restaurant was so busy we had to eat at the bar. I have no idea why so many people chose to eat at a restaurant with bad food. My boyfriend and I decided that they're enticed by a sign that only has one letter on it. It looks contemporary I suppose.

    Whatever

    This place is not worth it at all. The coconut shrimp appetizer is 10 bucks for all of 3 shrimp.

    decent......

    My girlfreind and I have eaten at many restaurants like eatery and really weren't impressed. The service was mediocre , our entrees came before the appetizer and the waiter was nice but nowhere to be found...mediocre experience...not the best menu around also they got rid of the udon salad and the braised ribs that i saw online when i planned on going there....decently priced meal $83.00 for 2: 1 app 1 soup 3 drinks 2 entrees the asian salad was very very good.....have fun dining.........somewhere else lol

    Worth The Wait

    Came here for Sunday (3/16) brunch wife my wife and my sister who came in from Long Island. We waited almost 45 minutes as the place was packed to the hilt which gave me ample time to observe. All the food brought out to the tables looked delicious and not much was left on each plate, if any. The entire staff could not have been more friendly and hustled non stop. When we were seated the hostess had already let our waiter know we had a 3:00 show to make and he was very attentive to our time limit. Our meals were well worth the wait. My stuffed french toast was off the hook! The Eatery is not big on atmosphere but is a must stop for locals and tourists alike.
