    Not so good to eat

    I was really excited about eating here. Tons of people told me how good it was. They were totally wrong. Maybe its because I live in the south, but the biscuts were dry and crusty. The sausage gravy was so poor that I had to send it back. I got eggs and some kind of potato mix. My friend got the pancakes. they were disappointing too. The syrup was cold. We got in pretty fast and that was the only nice part about my experience. This was rated as one of NY's Top 10 places for brunch. Personally, I think they need to re-do their list. It was 100% overrated.

    Yum...Breakfast!!

    Try the Lumber Jill or the Lumber Jack! It's amazing. Although the staff are not the nicest people in the world, they are not rude, and the food PLUS the atmosphere more than make up for it. I would recommend to go early when you're not hungry, because you'll be starving once your food arrives. However, I wouldn't go for dinner. There are much better places for that.

    Rude Staff

    This place is going downhill fast. Have visited on many occasions over the years on trips to NY but will now give it a miss. Food took long time to arrive and service was below par. Worst thing however was surly and rude attitude of staff. Popularity appears to have bred comptempt.

    Not so good

    Maybe they were having a bad night, but my husband and I both were unhappy with our meals, especially for the price. His pasta tasted generic, and my fish was subpar. The bill was $70 (included 2 drinks). I know that is not super expensive, but for that price you should at least get better food.

    I'll miss it for breakfast

    I'd say we hit GETE for a weekend breakfast about once a month, as it is right around the corner. I feel like I could probably make a better breakfast, as I love to cook, but I guess that is why you go out to eat - so you don't have to do anything! I love their homemade sausages, and the fresh OJ is great. The coffee is consistantly solid, and the bacon is out of this world. The migas always hits the spot, and the country cottage atmosphere just works. There is almost always a line, and as one of the previous posters noted - they could do a better job of being more gracious. Once inside the service is friendly at the bar but is definitely hit or miss when it comes to warmth. I realize they are busy, but I would be more inclined to tip if the attitude matched the homelike decor. GETE gets my thumbs up, and I will miss it when we move to CT this week!

    Above Average

    Food was good but nothing special. We had the Lumberjack (pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon) and something with the word "Fiesta" in it (scrambled eggs with salsa on top of a tortilla) and a waffle. The strawberry and orange butter was intersesting. The cost is a bit high as are many places in the upper west. FYI: They require a minimum $9.50 order per person. Service was good. My date and I recommend the place but it wasn't much better than going to IHOP or Waffle House. Be ready to wait in line too if you go on weekends.

    Oh, the joy!

    I would eat 3 meals a day here if I could - the lines to get in are just so long on weekends. Of course, I love the breakfast - the pancakes are truly amazing and there are also more healthful options. Mexican scrambled and turkey sausage is my regular order. I also like them for dinner - they have innovative dishes like a stuffed acorn squash - so good. Yes, the place is cramped, the service can be hectic and the door staff could be a little more gracious to those waiting, but the food is great. I won't wait 45 minutes in line anymore for a nightclub, but I will for this place!!
