Exceptionally friendly yet highly professional staff. Discreet, personable, and well worth the effort to visit their "unique" location. Absolutely incredible service. It is really nice to meet and interact with an operation such as Unique Eyewear here in a convenient midtown Manhattan space, virtually across the street from the Empire State Building. They deserve more than Five Stars

The best selection in NYC! Believe me I spent the whole weekend walking from store to store and there was no place like this. Unique Eyewear is the only store in Manhattan, which has a decent selection of cat eye frames. And yes, the customer service is phenomenal! I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for something just perfect.

Unique Eyewear is an extraordinary store. They are quick, efficient, and very good at what they do. As others have noticed, Julio is an extraordinary person. He has just gone out of his way to make sure that someone in crisis has received his glasses in a timely manner. If you want to do business in a truly decent and caring environment, Unique Eyewear is your store, and Julio is your man!

If l could give Unique Eyewear 10 stars, l would. Tess, the manager was very nice, friendly and professional. She helped me picked 2 pairs of frames that suit my face. Julio was very nice and helpful. He did a great job making my 2 pairs of glasses in a couple of hours. Received many compliments about my glasses. Told my friends, if you need a new pair of eyeglasses, go to Unique Eyewear and they will take care of you. They have an excellent selection of frames and great affordable prices. Amazing staff. Highly recommend!!!

Unique Eyewear is amazing! They were able to provide me with same-day glasses when my only pair broke the night before I was leaving for a long international trip. They have a great selection of frames and were very helpful recommending ones that fit and looked great. A special thank you to Tess who is incredibly knowledgeable, courteous, professional, and a genuinely great person! Very highly recommended for all your eyewear needs.

I lost my glasses and desperately needed a new pair. They were amazing. Had glasses within two hours. Couldn't have asked for better people or better service!!
