My wife and I dined for the first time at Hunters on February 18, 2006 and found the restaurant to be an excellent find. We were seated promptly without a reservation. Our server could not have been nicer or more competent. The menu is varied and generally very modestly priced, as is the wine list. We enjoyed a Napa Ridge Merlot, a bargain for $26.00. The menu ranges from items like meatloaf and chopped steak ( which I had and loved) for $10 or $11 to a $22.95 lobster special and slightly more expensive rack of lamb. I noted that lots of older people eat here, because the quality is good, prices are reasonable, and the staff is cordial. What can be better than that combination? The ambiance is ok with a fireplace in the front. If I lived on the Upper East Side, I'd eat here all the time.
Pros: great service, great value, food quality
Cons: needs more decor
