This is still one of our favorite Far West restaurants. The eclectic menu is great fun. The bar is fabulous. And the food is really terrific. Thoughtful and creative kitchen. We love the wait staff, too. And how about cherry pie a la mode for dessert?

Dinner or brunch!!!
Came for dinner pre theater & highly recommend the warm orange dusted lobster dish but does need extra lobster in my opinion. Service was outstanding!!! Would most definitely return!!!! I’ve been here for brunch in the past...also excellent!!

Awful! Food is bland! Ordered their special of lobster bisque soup. They should have offered a grilled cheese sandwich because it was basically tomato soup. My mom ordered the pistachio crusted tilapia. It was tasteless. The waiter also came over and said “oh that fish doesn’t look great,” and then did NOTHING about it. The bland, tasteless and boring food also took over an hour to come out. This place is appealing because of the proximity to the theater district, but go have a slice of pizza instead. You will be happier.

Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was terrible. My mom ordered her pancakes with no sausage and with syrup on side. It came with the sausage and syrup on the side. When we finally found our server, more than 10 minutes after we were served and we told him, he just apologized but offered nothing to make it better. It was also difficult to find server to get drinks refilled.

The menu is extensive and very ambitious but taste wise a lot of it was bland. Beet salad very good. Caesar average; very lemony. Bf liked halibut. Soft shell crab special essentially tasteless. The air conditioning blowing on the tables on the right side in front of the windows is a real problem. Every time it kicked on I had to put on my coat and close it up to my neck.

I love this restaurant, been coming here for about 20 years. It’s very well run, has excellent food and a lovely ambiance... just why it’s been around so long. Since I no longer work in the city, I can’t get here as often as I would like, so it’s my go-to restaurant when I do make it in. I have never been disappointed and there’s always a great selection of food to choose from.

Open, airy and bright - just what you want from a brunch spot especially when it's rainy and dreary outside. Great service, tasty food that doesn't overwhelm on portion size (which is a compliment - this isn't IHOP) and the muffins that hit your table the moment you sit down are much appreciated. It is brunch and we are always starving!

I had a 10pm reservation, but I walked in closer to 8pm because my theater presentation cancelled due to a technical problem. The manager could not have been more accommodating and found a way to squeeze me in. It is a very comfortable, rather small, room and they provide alfresco dining, weather permitting, The food was outstanding...chicken quesadilla appetizer, turkey and mushroom meat loaf, and fallen chocolate soufflé. Paired with two glasses of Hewitson Shiraz, it was an excellent combination, but about $100. My server was professional, but not exactly enthusiastic. Apparently, 44 & X caters to a primarily gay clientele and I was adding diversity to the room that night. It was not a problem.

This was a terrific dining experience that I would enthusiastically recommend...with the caveat that it is a bit pricey...

Location to style, ambience to quality of food this place is great. Had the chicken club which was delicious and partner had the halibut sandwich which he loved. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The owner came and spoke with us and he was super nice. Overall such a great experience that we are going to hold a birthday dinner there.
