As a fan of and frequent diner at Balthazar, I was psyched to try Schiller's. I finally went last August for a pre-birthday dinner. It was late-night, after a concert in the East Village. The restaurant is LOUD- don't expect to be able to hear the person sitting across from you. The bar is HAPPENING. I think that's really why people frequent this late night spot. Decor is typical bistro-in-NYC style with tiled walls, mirrors and wooden chairs. The food was pretty good. Calamari was fried nicely and the aioli was perfect. The grilled salmon was tasty but the piece of fish was on the smaller side. The deviled eggs were really good. One of their signature dishes, the steak frites was good, though not as good as Balthazar's. I wouldn't go back here for a special occasion, but I'd definitely return for a late night drink or snack.

The noisest restaurant you will ever go to. Ever. Anywhere. But the food is typically great as it is a McNally restaurant. Service is great considering how chaotic the scene is here. Beautiful and clean and has that trademark hip vibe. Just Noisy. don't expect a romantic quiet dinner here.

Schiller's is owned by Keith McNally (Balthazar, Lucky Strike, Pastis), the godfather of hip dining in New York. His admirable trademark is in creating energetic and transporting dining rooms that impart a distinctive sense of place. And they get better as they grow older. At this tight, loud and usually crowded bistro, the scene is set with white-tiled walls, antique mirrors and busboys wearing T-shirts printed with Heimlich maneuver instructions. House wine is served in plain bottles stenciled "cheap," "decent" and "good." The very likable and fairly priced menu ranges from penne arrabiata and garlic shrimp served in a sizzling iron skillet, to meat loaf with mashed potatoes, and very good steak frites. They do good weekend brunches too.

Nice Drinks They seemed to have a fairly extensive whiskey, bourbon list too. Chill atmosphere to chat in The bathroom was a bit unusual - at first you think you're going into a gendered restroom, but then you end up in a common washroom, then you go through another set of doors to the actual restroom.

If you don't know Keith McNally, look him up. This is a typical "McNally" place. You don't come here for food. You come here to be seen and to see beautiful young people. Before the Lower East Side became gentrified, this restaurant was practically the only restaurant that the jet set ever visited from different neighborhoods. This is no longer the case of course, but it goes to show what the atmosphere of this place might be. The dinner is decent, and the brunch is good. However if you're into food only, you may want to go elsewhere. This is a place to be "cool" and incidentally eat or drink.

Frankly disappointing. It's a great space, a good vibe and a promising menu, but the food is not up to it. Even the steak frites were not well executed - the meat was tough and the fries not great. The cocktails were great and the wine list is fun, but guys, what about the food??
