    What A Serious Disappointment

    I'm a fan of the East Side outpost of P.J. Clarke's, so when I learned that the restaurant was opening in what used to be Iridium, I was very excited. The area around Lincoln Center is a culinary tourist trap/wasteland, so I was thrilled that a bistro that so loved across town would be coming in to fill the void. Man, was I sorely disappointed! My mom -also a longtime P.J. Clarke's fan - and I went there for a late night bite after the ballet this past Sunday evening. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy, nor was the bar. I ordered a martini and a burger (which came without fries) and my mom ordered a Croque Monsieur. The martini arrived in the smallest glass I've ever seen, but it was adequate. When the burger arrived, it was on a teensy bread and butter plate, and was missing the bacon I'd ordered. My mom's croque monsieur had 1/2 of a piece of ham and the gluey cheese was plastered to the old bread; when she sent it back, the waitress-who had no personality and seemed to care less-said that the sandwiches were 'pre-made" and they couldn't add more ham. I pointed out that she'd forgotten my bacon, and she she'd bring it with the burger my mom now ordered. She disappeared. It seemed to take forever, and another server then brought my mom her burger-with MY BACON on it!! We tried to flag another server (ours had evaporated); got two busboys who didn't speak English but they managed to bring our waitress to us. She said, "Are there any more problems?" Could care less attitude. The burger was acceptable, at most, the fries ice cold. We left sadly vowing never to return, but glad to have checked this P.J. Clarke's out for ourselves. What a shame!

    Overpriced Tasteless Food

    We live in the area so were thrilled when we heard that PJ Clarkes had opened. However, we went last night and could not have been more disappointed! Not only was the food super overpriced it was terrible! The burger came without lettuce or tomato on a side plate and the meat was bland. You have to buy your fries separately, which were lukewarm and tasted like they had been reheated. The onion straws were really greasy and we couldn't eat them. All that aside, $50 for two burgers, one order of fries, one order of onion straws and two beers is too much with so many other great options available in the neighborhood!

    Must try harder!

    The food is OK, but the service is really not good. Our waiter was so casual, I expected him to pull our knives and forks out of his pocket. He was too cool for school, even though he was in his forties! The whole place has that "you're lucky we are serving you" air. Too cocky by half.

    Finally on the Upper West Side

    Just ate there tonight and while it may be a bit hectic now the food was wonderful - the service friendly - and it is just great to have a place like this in the restaurant wasteland that is the upper west side! I didn't check how late it is open but if it keeps the hours that the east side branch does this will be my new late night hang out. Wonderful!

    A welcome addition to Lincoln Center

    I have to say that our experience was good enough and I think this is a welcome addition to an area that does not have that many options. Our burger, Reuben sandwich and fries were quite acceptable and the fudge brownie delicious and more than enough for two people. The waitress was very nice, service was efficient and quick and the atmosphere quite pleasant. They have a reasonable selection of wines and beer and prices are not bad for the area. Don't go expecting haute cuisine, but for a quick bite before or after Lincoln Center it's a great option.

    Overpriced and Messy

    Ok, so the place is new, but the chain is not - so they have no excuse. For what it is - a pub - the food is far too expensive. We paid $76 for lunch. Yes, it included two glasses of wine - but the rest consisted of two sandwiches and very greasy onion strings. The floor around us, on a slow day, was dirty and covered in crumbs. Waiters walked around with dirty aprons and rags sticking out of their pockets. If PJ Clarke's wants to charge "upscale pub" prices, then they should clean up their act. There are plenty of other choices in the Lincoln Square area for the same price, but much better atmosphere.

    Unpleasant experience

    Granted, they had been open for only 8 days when I and 4 guests ate there last Saturday. The food was not good. I had the short rib which was dry and tastless, even the mashed potato was subpar. 2 in my party had the chicken sandwich and both left most of it on the plate. Our teenage guest ordered the mac & cheese which was more suited for wallpaper paste. I don't recall what the 5th person had. Two of us ordered creme brulee and it came without being "burned." We sent it back only to have it returned with just about an 1/8 of it "burned.." The noise level was deafening. The bar was so crowded it was almost impossible to pass thru to the toilet or to exit (and we were there at 5;30!) The waiter was very sweet...
