Terrible Food, Awful Service

By restreviewer on 1/3/2010

  • No, I would not go back!

BXL on E 51st is a terrible restaurant, for both food and service. The food is bland and tasteless, but far worse is the service. Extremely poor management, rude and incompetent, makes this restaurant appalling. Avoid at all costs.

Great beers, so helpful, nice space for after-work drinks

I am not much of a beer drinker, but I can always find a great beer on the menu here. And when I'm unsure, my waiter/bar tender has gone so far as to bring me as many samples as I like until I find one that works. The customer service is fantastic for an after-work bar - much better than the other options in the area. I can't say much about the food - I haven't tried it. I really like the atmosphere here - it's a nice space, well-lit, good vibe. When I go, it's generally filled with midtowners grabbing drinks with friends and colleagues. Good table space as well. Can usually get a place to sit if I want.

Some Hints:

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
