Einstein's Ratings and Reviews

I always have a good time at Einstein's, but Friday night had some real issues with our main dishes. The service was a little more disjointed than usual (didn't get my second cocktail until the meal was nearly over), but I expect a little weirdness on a Friday night in Midtown. The large plates that arrived were seriously disappointing, especially the "12 oz Certified Angus beef ribeye" that my dining partner ordered. When it came, it didn't even look as appetizing as the steak dinner you get at a Waffle House, and I'm not exaggerating. If it was 12 ounces, I have seaside property to sell you in Kansas and if was a 1/4 of an inch thick, it just was. It wasn't seasoned, either. The jerk shrimp and scallops pasta I ordered had no discernable jerk and both the shrimp and scallops were sinfully overcooked. In other words, I recommend that you stick with the amazing cocktails, burgers, and fries at Einstein's because the large plates are wayyyy off at the moment.

I have been dining at Einstein's for over 20 years. My friend and I decided to have New Year's Day brunch at Einstein's and I have never experienced such lackluster service here. I was leery right away when we were seated at a table in the bar. Our waiter was one of the bartenders - who we never saw after our food was delivered until he brought our check (more on that later). My friend's food was brought out - mine was not. We sent hers back and asked that our meals be brought out together. We asked repeatedly for a brunch bread basket and the runner who I asked the first time literally turned his head and walked past me when I said "excuse me" after he didn't bring us any bread. Finally, when we asked another server (for the third time), we got our bread basket.
The food was good, as always.
When we got our credit card printouts, I noticed that mine was not what the original bill was, but I figured they had made a mistake. This morning, when I checked my bank account, I noticed two charges for Einstein's. The first was reversed. Although the difference was only $.80, I was VERY irritated by this.
It will be awhile before I go back. I really don't understand what happened. The restaurant was busy, but I've seen it MUCH busier. To the restaurant's credit, I called after noticing the banking issue and the manager took my information and told me to come in and she would give me a $25 gift certificate.

Our waiter disappeared for 30 minutes at the end of our meal. We got up and walked the restaurant twice trying to find him so we could pay and leave. We couldn't find anyone working except the host. We love the food, but we have had several bad experiences with the service.

This Christmas Day 3-course meal was really wonderful and a neighborhood blessing for those of us who did not want to cook! We loved the various selections, the price was right and the service was exceptional on this festive occasion. This is one of our favorite go-to restaurants in the area and the valet parking is a BIG plus!

Christmas was my first time dining here. Einsteins offered a prix fixe menu and my brother and I each choose the turkey dinner. While the side-item portions were a little on the small side, the quality was excellent. In fact, the turkey was the most tender I've ever eaten, and our server Oscar was excellent.

Food was good and the service average. Lots of holiday parties when we arrived which contributed to my average rating of the service. The party guests were demanding which left our server stretched to get regular tables covered. I would definitely go back.

The restaurant exceeded expectations. It made a special night even better for me and my daughter. They more than accommodated requests for modifications and adds. The food was delish with not one dish being less than superb. The Shrimp and Grits was stellar! Portion sizes were more than adequate. The variance in menu from small plate to large plate was great for kid size portions and if your into tastings. Net, the service and food exceeded all expectations and I am thankful.

The service was absolutely horrible!!!!!!!!!! I've ate at this restaurant on many occasions in the past. I choose this spot to celebrate my daughter's birthday, as it's her favorite brunch spot. The server acted as if we were a bother to him, it took an extended amunt of time to receive our bread, as we added guest they had to wait an additional 25 minutes before their order was taken, 2 of the plates orders were mixed up, the order of pancakes was burnt, we asked if bacon was an option for the Bloody Mary bar and he looked at the bar as if to say 'you don't see it?'-- then he said he would return with bacon (put on the bar w/out asking if I still wanted bacon for my drink), anther order came out cold and had to be returned......I did not complain while there because we were there to celebrate and I didn't want to take away from the occasion.

We dined at Einstein's for Sunday brunch. We ordered the spinach and feta omelette and the breakfast club. The food was filling and tasty. We ordered a side of pancakes also. The pancakes were good. The syrup was a bit too sweet. We ordered a poinsettia and the strawberry basil lemonade. Both very good drinks. Great add to brunch. The service was good. The noise level was really high. It's very lively for brunch. Overall it was a great brunch.

The service was friendly but not very efficient. The waiter didn't tell us the specials, and we received our appetizers before our drinks. This was not typical Einstein's service.
I made a reservation and was seated in a booth by the door. I was hoping for the fun, modern restaurant I remembered, but there were screaming kids and more casual family atmosphere than hip. I think it was just where we were seated and it was early evening.
The bar area was very modern and nice. The menu has many great selections, and the food was good.

I am writing this review because my last visit was very disappointing but a friend wanted to meet there so I said ok, happy to say worth the visit the food was good and service was also good , I must say manager sent me an email and invited me back with an apology that's what made me not fight my friend on this invite .. Great job Einstein's so glad you redeemed yourself this has been a staple for me for over 15 years.

Asked our waitress what was good on the menu. She told us pork chop but it wasn't on the menu. Then during our meal I noticed other tables had a bread basket. I asked the waitress and she said the bread was frozen when we came in. At the end of the meal when we were ready to pay she asked if we wanted bread to take home. I declined. She should have brought it when I asked her about it. I thought that was poor service.

Great food and location. The four of us split two appetizers and each chose a different meal. We all equally agreed that the food and drinks were great but that the service was not. The restaurant was practically empty and halfway through our meal or waiter disappeared. We we waiting on our 2nd round of drinks for 20 minutes before we finally had to go and find our waiter to ask for the bill. I remind you that the bar and restaurant had maybe one or two other tables occupied.

My friends and, I liked the food at Einsteins. The food and the drinks came out in a good sequence so that you didn't feel like you were waiting forever(that is a pet peeve of mine). I liked the atmosphere, I mean juniper street in midtown there is a lot of happenings happening, but the restaurant was seemingly quiet except for the buzz of people enjoying their meals and light conversation. My friends and I stayed there for almost three hours I had a blast and I will be going back.

Our first server checked out during our meal, but he did introduce our second server.
Our second server forgot about us. We never received the additional drinks requested. Moreover, when we finished eating, we waited and waited for a dessert offer or something, but he never returned.
Finally, we had to get up and go find the host to get a check.
Einstein's used to be great, but it has gotten slack and feels tired and dingy now. I am sorry for that because it used to be one of my "walk to" restaurants the neighborhood. Fortunately I now have many more options.
