In New York City, location is everything. Bring within walking distance of Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Columbus Circle, and across the street from Carnegie Hall make Redeye Grill the perfect place for anyone who appreciates a fine steak or seafood dinner before or after a show.
Redeye Grill is very formal, so dress in your Sunday best. This type of atmosphere is observed immediately, as the managers are all dressed in business attire and the wait staff is all dressed in black and white skirts or tuxes. There are banquet rooms upstairs, which has its own private bar, for corporate events or large parties. The fish decorations at the bar add for a unique touch. The dining room is immaculately clean, well lit with beautiful flowers situated throughout. There is a spacious patio, which is not too loud. It makes for some excellent Manhattan people watching as you eat your meal and socialize with friends or colleagues.
They have live music every night. If it happens to be someone's birthday, they may even sing happy birthday if requested.
The service matches what you would expect from such a high end restaurant. >From the moment you walk in the door, you are the focus of the attention. You will be greeted warmly by managers and greeters. When you sit down, there is not a wait to be waited on. Meals can be customized if you tell your server about any allergies or restrictions. While looking around, you can easily see that the front of house staff works well together, and they are quick to help one another.
The food is amazing! The steaks are cooked to perfection, whether you like it bloody or well done. There are interesting and delicious seafood centric menu options, such as crab and lobster lasagna, crab cake topped with shrimp, crab cake BLT, and lobster pot pie. Their sushi bar is fresh with sushi, clams, and ousters. The portions are filling and worth the money, as there may even be some to take home. If you happen to have room for dessert, some favorites are the banana cream pie and the New York cheesecake. For large events, the chocolate covered strawberries are a simple, yet delicious plate for everyone. They have a typical beer selection, yet a nice wine selection, and the cocktails are strong and worth the price.
Being one of the best steak and seafood places around midtown, the perfect addition to an afternoon or evening of seeing a show or a celebration will be that much more memorable with a meal at the Redeye Grill. Between the menu options and high quality of food and service, no one will go away unsatisfied.
