Food decent but service poor. Felt ignored. Kept having to request someone to take care of us. Staff more interested in socializing with each other than taking care of customers. They also have a fly issue. Wouldn't return.

We stumbled across Schiller's whilst looking for some respite from an unexpected heatwave whilst visiting New York. We loved the tiled walls, the wooden bar, mirrors and decor - this place has a relaxing laid back atmosphere. A spot where you could linger. The food...More

Really enjoyed the place. Food service and ambiance all above average. Our server did not push or rush us. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours and had time to enjoy our friends over pancakes, burgers, etc and cocktails.

Schiller's has one of the best, if not the best, steak frites with bernaise in town. The drinks are also great and the ambiance unbeatable. Prices are very reasonable (for NY). A must go for anyone visiting the city.

A most visit destination whenever we are in New York visiting our son's family nearby. Always welcoming and accommodating ourselves and our granddaughter, now 20 months old, especially from Andrea. Very nice crispy fish on the menu, and Coney Island beer on draught!

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
