A great restaurant for a vegetarian who travels with people who love their meat. But the desserts, my my my, the desserts are really to die for. In particular, the newest concoction, the S'More: not exactly what I used to eat while camping with the Girl Scouts... And the chocolate mousse: dense and rich, without being sweet. Come to think of it, going straight to dessert isn't a bad idea. And one of the few restaurants that understands that if you're going to the theater you don't want to hang out for half an hour waiting for the check!

My experience here renewed my faith in good old fashioned customer service. Not the kind where people have to kiss up to you once you have gotten upset about something so you don't go bad mouthing them to your friends. This was the real deal. As a hotelier I am quite accustomed as to how to treat people but rarely get it back in return when I am on the other side. From the moment I walked in to the Redeye, it was textbook perfect. I was not sure if I was dressed appropriately as I was fresh off a plane in jeans, walked by and the place looked lively and warm. It was getting late, and I was starving and needed a good meal. Moments earlier, I had just stepped into my hotels restaurant where I received a complimentary portion of attitude from not one but two hosti - one male, one female. I kept walking in the neighborhood and found Redeye Grill. I was greeted by the GM coincidentally who when I asked if I was dressed appropriately he assured me I was and offered 4 different locations in the restaurant that I could choose from where I would be most comfortable. Turns out it was the bar, where he introduced the bartender to me and asked him to take great care of me, which he did. It was a bonus for me that the meal was terrific, the drink was stiff and the evening was saved. Mr. GM even came back to check on me. Imagine that. p.s. my complaint about service issues are not NY specific, unfortunately it is pervasive in many big cities

The Red Eye was recommended by our hotel's concierge when we asked for a moderately priced restaurant near the hotel. I wouldn't call it moderate, but expensive. The food is worth the price. The menu includes a wide variety of things from sushi, to steaks, seafood, Wiener Schnitzel, short ribs, and organic pasta. The last three were superb! Portions are good size and the atmosphere and service were excellent. If you can only afford one expensive restaurant during your NYC visit, then this is the place!

Everytime I come into the city this is the place I want to eat at. They truly have the best Cobb Salad. As a matter of fact I have never had a bad meal. I call it my City experience. I have brought many different people here who also became fans. Thank you Red Eye Grill for always being consistant.

On the suggestion of our hotel concierge we tried the Redeye Grill for Brunch on Sunday. The eggs benedict with Irish bacon and side of roasted vegetables was the best we've ever had. The pastry basket was a nice touch and the variety was excellent. The location near Central Park was perfect for walking off the over indulgence. We'll definitely go back.

We used to hit Redeye a lot when it was open late at night -- the atmosphere was reminiscent of the great Paris bistros, like La Coupole. But now that management has scaled back the hours, that attraction is pretty much gone. I guess the only "red eyes" now belong to the staff, who get to knock off early and head to the Meatpacking District with the rest of the pretty people to party all night -- leaving the post-theater crowd with one less Midtown option.

Had dinner here the weekend after the Rockefeller Center tree was lit and must say it was quite a lovely evening. We stayed at the Manhattan Club which is right up the block and the desk clerk recommended this place. Great atmosphere, interesting apetizers and yummy drinks. The dancing shrimp is awesome, we had just the cajun ones, but I'm sure the coconut are just as good. The presentation on this is so unique. My husband had a steak that he loved, I had the Shrimp fra Diavolo, which wasnt as impressive, but it had the most shrimp I have ever seen served with this dish and they didnt overpower it with a pound of linguine, they gave just enough. The only thing that was a bit depressing was that martinis were in the 15-16 dollar range, thats insane, but I would definately go back and try a different entree.
