I really recommend this place for a drink, it’s cozy and they have good service. I have been there for lunch as well but It wasn’t that good, the staff were not very attentive in the dining area, also they refused to serve the burger split in two plates, which sadly was over cooked. The fries were nice.
But really nice place for drinks at the bar.

The food is good. But the service is poor.

There were 4 of us for lunch. The restaurant is about half full. The service is slow. When the food came, the server had no idea who ordered what. There were 2 orders of frittata -- one with cheese and the other without. Only one came; and when we ask whether that is the one with cheese or without.. After some hesitation, the answer was with cheese. We told the server that there is another order of frittata.without cheese. While we were waiting for the other frittata, someone (from the kitchen?) came over, look at the frittata and informed us the one we have is without cheese. Then a good while later, the other frittata finally came.

The restroom: It had an unpleasant order. And the lighting -- I have never seen a restroom so dimly lighted -- even with the 2 added candles in the restroom. Instead of adding candles, they should put in a BRIGHTER lite bulb. Nowadays, with LED bulbs, it doesn't cost much to put in a brighter light bulb.

We were pleasantly surprised by the offerings at East Pole. We shared a few dishes, all were very good. Lovely selection of vegetarian sides. Nice atmosphere and good service.

The chicken to share was good and also the vegan soup and main dishes. The chocolate dessert wasn’t amazing. The cheese cake was good. Service was fine.

OVERPRICED for what it is.
Allude water is on the house it’s not and it just keeps coming. Sushi tiny portion for 18 dollars. It’s more expensive than Nobu for half the quality.
The space is cozy . Get the pricing correct relative to quality portion and they could have a nice UES business.
