GETE is quite an adorable Upper West Side gem. Based on the perfectly melted chocolate chips, the crispy edges, and the fluffy inside, I knew these pancakes would be Good Enough to Eat before my very first bite.

A good breakfast/brunch spot. – Great brunch. The french toast, pancakes, farm fresh eggs and the freshly squeeze OJ are reasons to come here to feed the furnace.

Don't eat the birthday cake! – I trusted the reviews on citysearch to help me find a bakery that makes good birthday cakes. I called up this bakery and asked for their most popular birthday cake order, and then I picked it up and brought it out to the Japanese restaurant where we were having the birthday dinner. I completely regret that decision without actually having gone there first to sample the cake. It was a yellow cake with chocolate frosting, something I could have picked up in a cake mix box at gristedes. Fine. But, the yellow cake was dense and very dry, I had to ask the restaurant to bring us some ice cream just so we could have something moist to wash it down with. I was very disappointed with the texture and overall quality of the yellow cake. I would not recommend cakes from this place. As for the food, I've never tried it.

Great Mac & Cheese – I came here on a late Wednesday night so it was not crowded at all. I ordered the Mac n Cheese & it was probably the best I've ever had so far. Gruyere cheese on ziti pasta. I couldn't finish the whole dish but had a great lunch the next day as well. My friend ordered the Chicken Parmesean & it was decent, but he wanted my Mac n Cheese more! We tried the coconut cake dessert which was recommended by the waitress, but it wasn't that great. The service was good. I will definitely come back to have some mac n cheese again.

Brunch is Great! – I have been here a few times and have not been disappointed....The food taste VERY fresh and the Eggs do not taste processed-Everything taste home made. Desserts are even better, but becareful if your on a diet! The line at times moves a bit slow, mostly on a Sunday, but its worth it. I would definitely recommend coming here!

I really wanted to love it. – A friend of mine suggested GETE after having brunch there and she said it was delicious. I looked at the menu and we decided to try dinner, it looked like real kinda comfort yummy foods.

Now, there's no denying that place is adorable and cozy and I had zero complaints with the waitstaff...in fact, he was very attentive. We started with griddled corn bread, which was amazing, seriously! I ordered the BBQ'd Pork Chops and my friend had the Thanksgiving/ Turkey dinner. I was so excited to dig into my entree but when it came out I found my mashed potatoes (and pork for that matter) cold. I felt like my Pork chop was cooked (and dry) and then slathered in way too much bbq sauce...but not really bbq'd per say My friend complained that her turkey and stuffing was way too dry. The desserts looked REALLY good but we decided to pass...the griddled cornbread was enough. All in all, if in a pinch...I would try it again (or maybe try the brunch) but for the money, I think you could do a whole lot better.

Not worth the wait – I've been to GETE numerous times over the last few years, although only for brunch, never dinner. The lines are long, and the food is good, but only by comparison to what's available in the neighborhood. Lately, in particular, the food has taken a turn for the worse. The last few times I've gone for Sunday brunch the waffles and pancakes tasted like they'd been cooked the day before and left under a heat lamp. The bacon, usually thick and hearty, was cold and fatty. And the kitchen has screwed up our orders several times. It's a simple menu, people, what's the problem? I'd like to say GETE is good enough, but it's simply not.

Great Breakfast Spot on the UWS – While this restaurant doesn't receive as much hype as Sarabeths, Freds, or even Popover, the breakfast/brunch is just as good - if not better. This cozy, country-esque joint makes you forget the hustle and bustle that's outside its front door. The servers are always friendly and quick to refill up your cup of coffee. (In fact, one the waitress' even has a warm, Southern twang). Most importantly, this place serves the best french toast in the UWS. Both the pumpkin french toast or the cinnamon raisin come highly recommended. Their egg dishes are excellent as well.

Excellent brunch, bad service – Every time I frequent this place for brunch, I love the food and find myself wondering what happened to the waitstaff. While waiting for the food and staring at my empty cup (dying for some coffee), I swear that I won't come back. But, the food wins me over every time. Its always delicious!

Hungry in NY – We ordered takeout here and encountered the following problems:

- Delivery took 90 minutes to arrive instead of 30 minutes as promised.

- Food arrived cold and soggy.

- Entrees differed significantly from menu descriptions. The "vegetarian" pizza included shrimp.

- Staff was exceedingly rude when politely confronted with problems mentioned above.

- Manager promised refund over phone, then changed her mind when we went in to collect.

There are many great restaurants in Manhattan. Save yourself the time and money - avoid this one.

I've-had-a-rough-day comfort food draws crowds, especially for weekend brunch. – The Scene
The homey interior features countrified decor with exposed brick walls covered in quilts and knick-knacks, and a cow motif prevails without irony. Friendly servers offer helpful suggestions and guide diners through the popular list of daily and nightly specials. During nice weather, a few outdoor tables offer prime Upper West Side people-watching on Amsterdam Avenue.

The Food
Popular breakfast and brunch menus are comprised of wholesome and old-fashioned food: Irish oatmeal, perfectly fluffy omelets (named after New York neighborhoods) and bacon that's extra thick and lean. Pumpkin French toast and chocolate-chip coconut pancakes come with real maple syrup and strawberry butter. At dinner, the quesadilla of the day is a popular starter. Entrees consist of cozy culinary Americana like mac and cheese, fish-and-chips and a classic meat loaf with mashed potatoes. Made-from-scratch desserts are a sure bet for ending the meal with flourish.
