We had heard great things about Ellen’s so wanted to try for ourselves. We first attempted on Tuesday lunchtime, and joined the queue way down 51st St outside the gift store. We waited and moved up slowly for about 15 minutes but as soon as we got the office block (where you need to leave a gap for people to enter/exit) we noticed a huge (I mean huge!) group entering Ellen’s at the side entrance. From then on we did not move. After about 25 minutes of not moving at all we left.
We came back in a Thursday about 11:10 and joined the queue in 51st St. this time we were moving gradually and a waitress came out to take group numbers. She would return periodically and call out for 2s or 5s etc. We queued for about an hour and took the offer to sit at the bar (you need to be over 18 to do so).
Food was excellent - we had a breakfast burger with waffle fries and a sex in the city cocktail. Quite pricey (bill was over $110). However Service was fast, and entertainment good. However sitting at the bar we felt out of it so I wouldn’t choose to sit here again (needed to turn around and search for the singing wait staff). Great idea and wonderful voices singing Broadway classics.
Point to note - gratuities were already included at 20% and there was a request for donations for singing lessons, which even tho told no obligations to contribute we felt obliged to.
