Best

Came here with a party of 9 after my brother got engaged. The service and food was spectacular and the manager brought out an entire buffet of desserts on the house to celebrate....

Worst

The open sushi/fish ice display is amazing when you first walk in. The pop rock shrimp appetizer was just a plate of plain old fried shrimp. It was very loud, I felt too crowded...

Disappointed 4/20/2009

We visited Redeye Grill with a group of friends about 5 years ago and it was a fantastic evening in the conservatory part of the restaurant. Food and atmosphere was first class. We returned as a couple during our recent holiday trip and chose this place for the Saturday night. The waiter was very helpful but when the table kept rocking from side to side with a wonky leg, he said it had to be in a certain place on the floor and, regrettably, that meant I had to be pinned to the wall with the table! I know that ribeye steak is marbled but mine was full of fat and I had to use my napkin for the most of it. I mentioned this to the waiter who took the steak off the bill and the manageress visited our table to say that the person responsible in the kitchen should not have put this steak on the grill and he is new. All in all, a disappointing experience and an expensive one despite the steak missed off the bill. Pros: Nice waiter Cons: Disappointing food more

Wonderful spot for pre-theater dinner! 8/30/2008

Wonderful food and fun atmosphere. Great spot for a pre-theater dinner. Service was friendly, prompt and helpful. Dinner specials are super value. Very good spot for a large group. Would definitely go back on next trip to NYC . more

Good tasting meals, at reasonable rates. 6/19/2008

After checking in at the Buckingham Hotel, we asked one of the employees to recommend a good restaurant. He told us that the Red Eye Grill was a place to go. Our first meal in New York City ever turned out to be a great one. The steaks were good, my son really liked the eel, and my wife had a dish of crab cake (meat) on spinach. I would definitely come back to the Red Eye. more

Good Place 10/10/2007

Have been to this restaurant several times! Each & every time I go, I like it even more. The service is excellent, the food is fantastic, and the drinks are even better!! I had the seafood Paella, which was wonderful! The cobb salad is also good. I have also taken many people from out of town here and they ALL request to go back. Def make a reservation though!! Pros: seafood paella more

Great find! 7/25/2006

I went here with a friend on a whim, we went someplace else first and couldn't get a table. Service here was great, food was fantastic. Guacamole+shrimp appetizer was really great, we both had the filet, very good, didn't much like the frites that came with, but the filet was so good, neither of us cared. Pros: Great service, great food Cons: none. zip. zero. more

Love it, love it, love it. 6/28/2006

A friend of mine brought me here. I loved it. I brought a friend of mine here. She loved it. We brought a bunch of friends here. They loved it. The Cobb Salad is to die for. The service is friendly. The place may be a bit on the loud and bustling side, but that's part of its charm! Try it. You'll love it! Pros: Cobb Salad more

Big things come in big packages 3/19/2006

Big and gawky on the outside. Tends to turn people away. Go inside and you won't want to leave. The food is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. The desserts are more appealing then stuffy overpriced French restaurants. Nice find. In fact, you can't miss it. more

Great every time 12/30/2005

I have been about 4 times and have always had a great meal. I think this is one of the more underrated places in the city. They have a very diverse menu so its something for everybody. The steak is good, the fish is good and the sushi was surprisingly great. They also do a great job for restaurant week. Pros: Great Food more

My Favorite In All of NYC 6/30/2005

I have NEVER been disappointed in the Red Eye. The first time I went, and was completely taken by the live jazz band and atmosphere, I ordered the Lobster Cobb Salad. I've never ordered anything else from their menu...there's no need to. It's simply the best meal in NYC. You cannot go wrong at the Red Eye Grill. Pros: Lobster Cobb Salad, live jazz band, attentive service Cons: definitely expensive more

What kind of Food were they serving?????? 6/21/2005

Their food were not impressive, especially their sword fish. It was their special for today, and they sure did suprise me. I felt like I was eating burnt fish, rather than a nice, fine cooked piece of fish. Also, their sake and their ""sparkle"" water were way too expensive. Just the drinks together cost over $100.....Wouldn't go back ever again. East and pay at your own risk. Pros: Sashimi Cons: Lack of space, Bad cooked food, too loud more

Save your money, it ain't worth it 6/13/2005

The food at this place is average with an above average price tag. I felt like I had fallen into a tourist trap. We tried the duck quesadilla (good), a house special maki roll (nothing special), salmon 3 ways (dry+overcooked), and jumbo prawns (super salty). I never mind paying for a good experience but this did not measure up. Pros: nice space Cons: average food, high prices more

disappointed 11/11/2003

Our last experience was so disappointing. Had a terrible time making a reservation and when we arrived they still had the table count wrong, and that was after 5 phone calls! We waited at least 45 minutes to be served our entrees. When we received our bill, we were charged 3 desserts never ordered. It waill probably be the last time we go there. Pros: good food Cons: expensive, poorly run, disorganized more

wait 10 min for the menu 5/23/2003

The place is busy but there's no excuse for taking 10 minutes to get our menus after we sat down. We also had to wait another 45 min to get our entree AFTER we finished our appetizers. The most attention we got was when the waiter was waiting to be paid. Pros: decor Cons: shoddy service, too loud more

fun, music but average 3/19/2003

redeye grill is a fairly large restaurant. it isn't very intimate and the decor is pretty plain. the food was average. filet mignon was ordered medium but was dry and a little over cooked. mashed potatoes with scallions was tasteless. stuffed shrimp sounded delicous; arrived and was disappointed with it's mediocrity. desserts were a bit better, the chocolate mousse was very good. although our waiter mistook the cheesecake with a slightly brulee top as creme brulee. my glass of shiraz had a bit of cork in it. not sure if i would go again, it's got a great location on 56th street perfect for midtown workers. Pros: seems popular Cons: food rather average more

Worth It! 3/8/2003

My friends and I truly enjoyed ourselves!! Nice atmosphere and crowd. Dinner was delicious. Perfect filet mignon - cooked just right! Good service. No rush, no attitude. Highly recommed! Pros: great food, good service, nice atmosphere more

Pricey but delicious 2/26/2003

We went to the Sunday brunch, and were pleasantly surprised to find a jazz combo there. The restaurant is a little loud, but we were able to converse well enough. The service is excellent -- the staff is attentive and the waitress was well-informed about the menu. My striped bass with grilled vegetables was excellently prepared (but could have been a smidge warmer). The prices are a little steep, but it's a nice treat once in a while. more

Too Loud... 1/28/2003

The open sushi/fish ice display is amazing when you first walk in. The pop rock shrimp appetizer was just a plate of plain old fried shrimp. It was very loud, I felt too crowded, the man chair's next to me made it impossible for the waiters to pass. I also felt our waitress rushed us a little. Pros: big Cons: too loud, rushed more
