Longman & Eagle is consistently great. The food and service is always on point. My most recent dinner came with excellent whiskey recommendations from our server. This is definitely a place to take any whiskey enthusiast to as their menu for liquor is extensive. I would definitely recommend for a fun happy hour drink or dinner with friends. The menu does change periodically but if you do go, I recommend the pork shoulder with collard greens and sweet potatoes.
Consistently a great meal! I’ve eaten here about about once a year for the last decade. And I’m always excited to go back. The service is wonderful and so is the food.
This time, I had to eat a special gluten-free free diet- first time I’ve ever had to restrict my ordering here. I was concerned, but I had some really exciting options.
Everything is great, you don’t need recommendations. Try as many things as you can.
4 of us ate there on a Saturday brunch. 2 of us had the standard breakfast and the portion size was large enough. They also brought an additional bowl of the potatoes. The other 2 people also had good sized meals. Food was terrific. I had an iced tea and it came in a tall skinny glass that didn't hold much liquid. L in all it was a nice experience.

Sweet Jesus. Longman has been one of my favorite restaurants in the world for a long time now, but I haven't had many chances to go since the pandemic started.
Let me say this: they haven't missed a beat. Our meal tonight was one of the best I've ever had. In fact, my only complaint would be that their menu undersells the amazing dishes that back it. Their mackerel? A must-have. The green beans with XO sauce? Exploding with flavor (even without _any_ animal products). The smoked trout? Delicate but forcefully delicious. The burger? I didn't know there was room for improvement on their previous iteration before tasting the lacy, juicy, perfectly seasoned masterpiece tonight.
Their beverage menu is similarly life-changing. Longman has always been a fantastic place to have unique booze experiences, and their current cocktail menu is as deep as it is broad. There are takes on classic cocktails that should supersede the originals, inventions that are refreshingly novel, and the Whiskey for Drinking™ menu that remains one of the best deals in the city.
Oh, and somehow the staff has gotten even friendlier, even more committed to making sure that this is an experience that you'll hold with you long after you leave. The post-Longman afterglow lingers just long enough for you to make another reservation and do it all again.
We actually stayed at one of the Inn rooms above the restaurant. Excellent room, space, layout, amenities and we were able to order room service which was like having our own private room to eat. In COVID times this was exactly what we were looking for. The food was as good as it gets. We ordered multiple sides and 1 main dish all to share. We were stuffed but wanted to keep eating.
Big fan all around.
So, I used to live right upstairs from LM&E when they first opened their doors, and for the first 3 years. Loved it then and happy to say It's even better now.
AMAZING; whiskey selection, knowledgeable bartenders/servers, GREAT food and most of all, the best fries in the city... in my opinion of course. Oh and I'd argue the best Manhattan. Glad I stopped in, it's been a few years. I'll be coming back soon, save me a seat🥃🍟
What a great restaurant. We stopped by during restaurant week, and everyone loved what they ordered. There was a great variety for the different dietary restrictions. The waiter was wonderful and nodded approvingly at every order we placed; we felt great.
BEST BURGER IN THE CITY. I stand by this forever and ever!!!! Plus they have a great little happy hour with $1 high balls. The only thing I'm not a fan of is that their kitchen closes for a couple hours during the day and it's a tad dark inside.
