Pildes Optical: Great Service & Staff

Pildes has been in my neighborhood and for years now and my family and I have been going to them for years! After 5 years of wearing glasses I finally wanted to try out contacts but I was unfortunately away at college so I was not able to utilize Pildes service. I went to optical store at school and tried putting in contacts for hours with no success. A month later I tried yet again and I was their all afternoon a... view more

unbelievable service

I bought glasses from Jay at the Broadway branch several months ago, the third or fourth pair I've gotten there over the years because it's a well run store with a knowledgable staff and comparatively reasonable prices. Although I've always been satisfied with my purchases, my new glasses pinched my nose. Every few weeks I'd go in to have them adjusted and was always treated well, by Jay or whomever was there when h... view more

Best Eyeglass Store!!!

Pildes Optical is a neighborhood store run by young guys who make it seem like it's 1963. Service and smiles are impeccable, and the craftsmanship and attention to detail are unrivaled. I remember as a kid that stores in my Manhattan neighborhood used to be just like this—where the owners and employees knew your name and cared about you. What's more, the price at Pildes is right—you pay less than fancier stor... view more

Awesome eye boutique in UWS with normal people

Out of all the damn over-priced places in the UWS, this place is an oasis. They don't have bored, or worse, over-the-top sales people, or clueless retail assistants with an eye doc in the back. Just normal, intelligent, even funny with personality, engaged professionals who will let you browse if that's what all you want to do. Or, will provide you info on your lenses, and will even do a search on the internet with... view more

The best eyeglass place

I've been going here for at least 15 years. The service is fantastic - most/all of the staff has been at that location for a while. I started coming here when I was having a hard time getting the right eyeglass script (not sure why, my dr. just couldn't get it right) -- did a walk-in w/their optometrist, he got my script right (had some slight astigmatism) and have been coming ever since. The staff is FANTAS... view more

Awesome service!

This past week was the second time my glasses have broken while on a trip to NYC. A year ago I discovered Pildes, and they literally saved my vacation! This time my glasses broke on the way to my local airport (is it something about going to NYC?). I was prepared with extra side pieces, and I left them at Pildes right before close on a Tuesday. They were ready first thing the next morning, and I was on my way! T... view more

Best Eye-Glass Store ANYWHERE

It's rare to find a store like this one anymore. The staff has been there for a long time because it's a terrific place to be. They are helpful beyond measure (and you can trust their opinions about which pair is the very best for your face!), they're warm and kind, and they genuinely care about their clientele. I've been a customer for over a decade and have recommended them to everyone. I don't care how far I m... view more

Had a terrific experience

I had a trouble with a pair of glasses that I'd gotten and the proprietor replaced them for no charge. I have gone to them for many years and will continue to.
