The night before Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment, he enjoyed a relaxing dinner with friends at one of his favorite restaurants, In Touch can reveal.

The actor dined in West Village restaurant Automatic Slims with two other men from around 7pm. 

An eye witness told In Touch he seemed "totally fine" and was drinking cranberry and soda. 

"The friends he was with seemed like industry people. He had a cheeseburger. He was low-key and friendly and none of them looked like they were looking to party," the eye witness said.

"He comes in occassionally and just keeps a low profile. He hardly ever drinks. Such a nice guy and very unexpected to hear this news."

The 46-year-old was found dead around 11.30 this morning from an alleged heroin overdose. Crime scene investigators were at the scene throughout the day and his body was not taken from his home until 6.45pm.

The New York Police Department have yet to release any details about his tragic death but reports said he was found with a needle still in his arm and packets of heroin near him.

The New York Times reports there were "five empty plastic envelopes" in his trash can.

His death has sent shockwaves through Hollywood.

Celebrities, including many of Hoffman's 'Hunger Games' co-stars, took to Twitter to express their grief and condolences after news the star had overdosed in his Manhattan apartment was first reported.
