    Some critiques valid, but is great place

    Living 100 yds from the place I have been able to see the evolution of the place from opening until now. They opened to larger than expected crowds (around the block) and were unprepared, but things have calmed down. I am a vegetarian and have had several of their dishes. The "Cajun" (sans meat) is great, and I assume is even better with the meat. The "Garden" is great as is the "4 cheese". My favorite is the "Mozzarella" by far, tastes a lot like pizza. The "Manchego" does lack the bite of the manchego cheese I am used to, and you must like fennel, but it is good. The "All-american" is just that, but could use some more cheese. Basically anyone should be able to find something they will like and enjoy, and the staff (especially owner, Sarita) is friendly and attentive.

    Finally the true comfort food

    Went to this Mac n Cheese place in the East Village ... I can't say how long we've waited for something so awesome to open up ... it doesn't get better than this for us cheese fanatics. So here's the bottom line:- Food was great - cheesy, hot and a lot of varieties to pick from. Service was good - friendly, quick. The only thing I could do without was the wait, but I guess when you open a mac n cheese place everyone's gotta have some! We'll definitely go back again (and again and again).

    Diddly S'Mac.

    It's a fantastic concept for sure, but the execution is way off. We stood in line for 40 minutes before getting to the counter to order (around 7pm, weekday). Once we ordered, we stood over other customers, breathing down their necks waiting to self-seat at one of a handful of tables. Unfortunately, our order came out before a table came up, so we were left standing and salivating over our $9 macs. They sent them back to the kitchen where I presume they were warmed while we stood for at least another 10 minutes until a table came up. Another pair asked to share our table when they saw the seating mess, and we agreed, because it seemed like the right thing to do, even though we would rather have not squished and shared our conversation. The (reheated) mac, was even more disappointing than the seating/ordering experience. The brie mac didn't taste like brie, and I seriously question whether there was even any brie in the dish. The cheese (whatever it was) was nonexistent. The mac was dry and tasteless--I would have preferred a box of Kraft. The macaroni (regular, not wheat) was really eggy and cheap tasting. Some cream, some cheese, some milk, something to make the mac feel like a real mac! The manchengo dish was more of the same: the cheese did not taste like the salty manchengo I'm used to, and it was pretty much non existent. For $2, we could have made the mac cheesier, but honestly, it should have had more than a teaspoon of cheese for $9. The salad was great, though dressing options are very limited (and packaged). The cast iron pans and pot holders were cute, too, but overall, it was a very disappointing experience for a mac and cheese lover. I would not go back.

    S'mac down...

    My roomies and I were really hoping that this neighborhood joint would be a good addition to our take-out selection. though the service was pleasant, the food was less than stellar. maybe we shouldn't have opted for the whole wheat pasta when treating ourselves to mac n cheese, but there was something lacking in all of our dishes (the 4 cheese, lite, and all american)....cheese. the pasta itself seemed undercooked. we might give it another shot, and go for the regular mac.

    Cheesy Delight!!

    Ok so we've been hearing about this mac n cheese place in East Village and finally got to check it out ... it's awesome! The food was fabulous! We even got to speak with one of the owners, Sarita. Apparently they opened to a bigger than anticipated crowd and things were a bit overwhelming but everything is under control now and they have some great cooks on board. We ordered four different items in the smallest nosh size and my fav was the All American (dripping with cheese!) and the goat cheese one. I would definitely go back and recommend this place to all you cheese fans!

    Cheeseless

    Best Mac & Cheese? The owners are very nice people but their basic mac n cheese is void of cheese! All I tasted was boiled pasta with a hint of metal from the pan. Unfortunately, not recommended.

    S'MAC is underwhelming

    I went to S'MAC with very high hopes, as I love Macaroni & Cheese. When I arrived, there was a long line and a crowd of people crammed into a small space. The decor is cute, the owners very friendly, but let's get down to the food. The "All-American" mac was good....not great, and the Gruyere was unpleasant (and I am a big fan of Gruyere). The taste is just "off". You'll have to see for yourself. All in all, definitely not a destination place, and I would only go again if in the neighborhood and order just the "All-American."
