Ate there about a week ago and had a very uncomfortable time. I sat on the ground floor and the waitress was very argumentive and demeaning to her other co-workers. Although the food was good , the atomosphere was tense!

Three of us went to the Hourglass on Sunday after seeing a matinee. We each had the pre-theater dinner which included a phyllo appetizer, salad, entree, dessert and coffee all for $19.95. Two of us ordered the grilled shrimp, scallop, portabello mushroom, onion and green pepper skewer. It came with mashed potatoes and smow peas. The third person in our group ordered the salmon which came with mashed potatoes and broccoli. We all ordered the chocalate mousse cake for dessert. We also shared a bottle of a very nice chardonay from Chile which was priced at only $16.95. The portions were very generous. The food was excellent. Service was very attentive. We will definitely return.

We ate here recently (8/9/07). The Delmonico cold in the middle and chewy: Sea Bass was slimy. Salmon overcooked. Broccoli undercooked and chewy. The bread was good. So-so wine list. It was our waitress's first night, so I'll give her a pass on a few things. However, the place is charming. I'm surprised at the high marks. Perhaps the cook had an off night.

Went on a Wed after matinee - owner himself seated us - first table we said was a little tight and he immediately gave us a larger table. Service was impeccable, food /price - fantastic, I had softshell crabs and my friend had pork chops so tender they melted in your mouth . Made a fabulous martini - will definitly be returning!

Tried this place after reading about it on your web site. Although very small, had no trouble getting a nice table upstairs by a window without a reservation on a Saturday afternoon after a matinee. Although I imagine that would have been difficult later in the day. Sea bass, filet of sole, and baby lamb were perfectly cooked and fabulous. Free spinach appetizer was a nice touch. Service was fast and friendly. Bathroom could use an upgrade but was clean.

The wk. before Easter '07, 6 of us ate here & LOVED IT! A nice bartender in the Theater dist. suggested it based on our needsf for something not touristy. The menu had LOTS of specials for $20/less which all included 1 app. - stuffed phylo, 1 big salad, entree & dessert & coffee. The filet was so big! No one was unhappy. The upstairs seats 18 and there were 10 of us (2 parties) and felt comfortable in what was once a home. Our server is the SIL of the owner - who gave us cheek kisses on the way out. It was the best meal in NYC we had the entire trip. Head down Restaurant Row and it's on the right. Wine is reasonable too. We will go back again.

My friend and I ate at the Hourglass before going to see Wicked on February 21st. I called ahead for a reservation. Lucky I did since the restaurant seems small and it was very busy. We were greeted at the door and immediately seated. There were plenty of pre fixe meals to choose from as well as there regular menu. We both decided to try the grilled sea bass. Our waitress brought us a phyllo vegtable appetizer that was served with a delious red sauce for dipping. This was followed by a salad. Our dinner arrived quickly. The sea bass was accompanied by asparagus (which I love) and mashed potatoes. I think they were seasoned. The portions were a perfect size so we didn't feel to full. We were offered a mixed fruit cobbler hot from the oven both we both declined. It was a very pleasurable dining experience. It is located on a street the is loaded with restaurants on both sides. This is a great choice if you are in NYC.
