Had dinner last night at Eastern Standard and the food was excellent. Six people and not a single bad dish, however the noise level was annoying. We had to shout to hear each other; sometimes having to repeat.
The noise volume was not coming from other tables but the music sound system. We dined late (10:00) so my question is this -- Do they turn up the music volume the later in the night it gets for the very active bar crowd or is it always deafing during the dinner hours?
