21 East is a small restaurant/ bar. When you walk in the atmosphere was nice and the staff was very welcoming. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table to come open so we went upstairs to the bar area to wait. The bartender upstairs was not very friendly, and quite pushy. Two of the people I was with ordered a shot because it was there 21st, he gave it to them then proceeded to pour himself one. Now I could be wrong, I don't know, but I thought the bartender was only supposed to take a shot or drink if you bought it for them. Anyways, besides the fact that he kind of bothered me doing that, he was very pushy trying to get everyone to take a shot, and when we all didn't take one he told us that we needed to being our wild friends next time. Not very professional. We finally got our table which was tight, but we managed. We sat down right away and ordered our food and drinks. We waited on our food for an entire hour! I had the 21 East Burger, and it was delicious once I finally got it. The food was great, the service was extremely slow. The hostess did more for us than our actual waitress. The only other thing is the noise. If you want to be able to talk to your group that you're with don't go here unless you planning on yelling all night. Because the place is so small and has a substantial amount of people in there it is incredibly loud. So bad, I had started to get a headache by the time we left. Now I gave this restaurant a good rating because it was very good food, the service was for the most part good, just slow. If you like loud upbeat places, this is great!
