This place looks like an Itslain market as designed by Willaims Sonoma stuffed with every model and Wall Street douchebag in New York. There are so many people here thatís its hard to move around or even find a place to stand. They do offer 50-60 beers for sale of mostly DFH and Itslisn craft. Avoid unless you want to get lucky with a model or you want to buy the worldís largest jar of Nutella.

Iím rating the store... Good selection of Italian beers in NY, Dogfishead also present and not so overpriced, which I canít say for Italian brews. Itís worth of visiting it, but not a place to talk about it much...

I stopped in here early after Eataly opened and was most disappointed with the prices and the waitstaff. What was it...like $10 for a pint of some random-ass pale ale? I think I struggled through with $6 for a half-pint of Victory Prima Pils. The shitshow downstairs makes it hard to find beers and you always get the feeling your not trendy enough or a maze-solver enough to handle this place.

Fun place. Really interesting stuff going on. A complete amusement park for those interested in italian food. The beer selection of bottles to go is limited. Some chilled. Mostly all Italian with the exception of Dogfish Head products (a pretty full line up) and Farnum Hill Ciders (three varieties). Beers are decently expensive, and I wouldnít really come here to buy bottles. But you should come here for the food and the Birreria.

Absolute pandemonium- an onslaught of half of New Yorkís affluent mid 20s to mid 30s crowd are everywhere having a wine and cheese tasting in the middle of the floor space while alcoves upon alcoves sport different eating stations with unknown menus and nowhere to sit and eat. Waiting for a precious seat in an alcove can take over an hour. However, within the absolute chaos; there is a BEER STORE of sorts right near the Birreria upstairs sitdown restaurant, which has a separate listing here on ratebeer, which is probably fair. Eataly is an emporium of food for eating there or to make at home. Birreria is a restaurant. The BEER STORE part is sort of hidden but if you find it near the entrance of Birreria, you will find:

the entire Baladin, del Borgo, Ducato collection along with bottles of silver label Xyandu barleywine, but those bottles will run you $48 for a 375mL. Probably the most expensive selection of single bottles you will see in your life, but if you are looking for a random Italian beer this may be worth stopping in for. BTW, we all bought pasta here to make at home and it was delicious. Much better than waiting for two hours for a table.

Iím not sure why we need two different "places" are needed for the store/bunch of restaurants part and the Rooftop bar (the only part of this place that is even worth the visit), but this rating is for the rest of Eataly, Iíve got to say, since no one else will, this place sucks. The beer store is mediocre, with terrible prices, and only a good selection if your looking to overpay for DFH or want some semi-rare Italian beers. Otherwise, there isnít much going on here you canít get somewhere else and avoid the terrible crowds. If I could go below 1 on the atmosphere, I would. Walking around here is a nightmare. I like this place so much in theory, but I canít deal with the crowds, and I canít stand the price gauging that goes on here. The food selection is great, but totally not worth it. They know it will be full no matter what, so they charge crazy prices. Its our own faults for going there. Maybe in 5 years, when it isnít "cool" anymore, this place will become tollerable, but for now, it is a nightmare.
It is really too bad, 2 years ago I was so excited for this place to open, now, Iíd be happy not to ever go back. Iím sure Iíll get suckered in again, but Iíve visited on multiple occasions (mostly showing it to out-of-town guest who really wanted to see it), and Iíve honestly never really enjoyed myself. Maybe if Vinny hadnít pulled out it would have been worth the crowds, but with just Sam and the Italian brewers, they have decent beers, but they canít overcome the crowds caused by their hype.

Iíve only been here once, but the rooftop bar provides an inviting atmosphere. The staff is diligent and friendly. There were a few of the brewpubs available on draft along with some bottles as well. Somewhat long wait to get a table, but no wait if youíre drinking at the bar.

Amazing location. The food is rather expensive; probably pretty good, but we didnít get much. Some unique beers that you can only get here, but for $10+ per 12oz you wonít be trying many. Fun to try once as a local, but not worth going out of the way for. A victim of its own popularity, as well.

This is a very commercialized/Disney version of Italy, but you have to be impressed by the importing going on at this place. The Italian beer selection is superior to anything Iíve seen in Italy, much less the United States. Expensive, but this place has the Italian goods if you want them. Be warned that you might have to crowd surf to get anywhere in the market on a weekend.

Massive Italian food emporium. If they donít have it, youíre probably mistaken that it ever existed. Weekends are insanely busy with people apparently willing to queue for anything. Having said that, there are very tasty panini up front, a great selection of meats and cheeses and a couple of spendy restaurants as well. But, if youíre here for beer, the selection is pretty limited. Thereís a smallish selection of Italian beer (including macros and some more obscure stuff). Absolute pricing is crazy, but the relative price on the Italian stuff is actually decently competitive. I didnít see anything new in here but it was worth taking a look to see what all the fuss was about.
