One of the closest restaurants to Carnegie Hall is Red Eye Grill. If you are headed to a performance there, Red Eye Grill is a great choice for pre-theater dining, or before or after an afternoon performance. The sophisticated, timeless elegance combine with excellent food and service, for an enjoyable meal.

Red Eye Grill has been a staple in mid-town Manhattan for more than 25 years. Having dined here many times, we can attest to their honoring reservations ( and accommodating you to the best of their ability if you have car troubles and are a bit late). 

There are six concrete steps from the street to the entrance patio. If you are unable to do the steps you can walk to the left (56th street) where you will find a lift to get you to the patio area. It is not very noticeable; look for the “888” sign and you will find it.  If you prefer, you can walk to 56th street, turn right and find the ramp to the patio. You enter a single door, a small entryway and another single door to access the welcome area. The bar and lounge area are on the right. One side of the bar requires two steps up. The other does not. There is live music every evening.

The main dining area is large, with tables, banquettes and booths.  Depending on where you are seated, it can be  a bit difficult to navigate. If you have a particular need, mention it at the time you make your reservation and they will try to accommodate. We have never had a problem!  When you are seated, take some time to look around at the colorful art, floor-to-ceiling columns painted by celebrated artists, along with Red Grooms’ artwork.  It is a feast for the eyes, as you enjoy a feast for your stomach.

The varied menu has something for everyone. The lobster roll presentation was amazing. The taste was delicious, but it definitely could have used more filling. The rest of our party all chose variations of sushi entrees and all of them were excellent as well. Our server was gracious and professional, making sure that all of our needs/wants, were met. She even remembered my “extra ginger” without a reminder!  We know that desserts here are delicious, but we didn’t have enough time. The presentation of warm chocolate chip cookies at our table (and everyone else’s ) is a great touch!  As if that isn’t enough, as you leave you will find a large serving bowl with chocolate, on the welcome counter!

Multi-stall restrooms are located in a hallway in the rear of the dining room The accessible stall is a bit narrow, and thew sink is not wheelchair accessible. Also, there is no baby-changing station. 

If you can manage the aforementioned items, Redeye Grill is a great choice for dining near Carnegie Hall. 

As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website,, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
