We had brunch here and the food was fantastic! The service was great as was the atmosphere and decor! I highly recommend the lemon ricotta pancakes and you must try the cheddar biscuits....delish! I will definitely be back to try lunch and/or dinner!

Service was very disappointing, food was good. I came here for my birthday lunch and was really looking forward to the experience. My family was neglected, our servers attention was not on us even while ordering (he started talking to another employee as we were asking a question). We were not asked if we needed anything during the meal. It was not easy to order my second glass of wine and when I did it took very long to get it. Empty plates were piling up and not being picked up but our basket of fries that still had a lot of fries left inside was taken off the table even though they weren't finished. \n\nWhen that happened I decided to privately talk to a manager. I let her know very nicely without trying to throw any employee under the bus that we were feeling neglected. We still had a couple of entrees left and I wanted to be sure that we were attended to properly for the rest of the meal. She smiled at me politely but didn't seem to care. And I quickly realized that she didn't care because the service did not change in the slightest for the rest of the meal. \n\nThe same manager took our credit card to process our bill and you would think that she would ask us if the service was better or if everything was ok...but she didn't. She didn't even take something small off of the bill. \n\nLike I said earlier the food was good but not good enough to come back to that service and to a restaurant who doesn't value its guests. If the manager had better customer service skills and was humble enough to make changes to the service immediately or even take off the dessert we would have probably come back or recommend the place to our friends.

We had the three course prix fixe lunch. The raw fluke appetizer, although it was a large portion, was coarsely prepared. The fish was sliced/hacked into thick, stringy chunks and the horseradish topping was completely flavorless. The main course of raviolo on pork ragu was underseasoned and overwhelmingly rich, the pork oily and the raw egg yolk, though tasty, was too much with the super creamy cheese filling. I couldn't finish more than 3 bites. The desserts of almond cake and a popcorn sundae were very good. The service was fine and the atmosphere lively, though I expected better food from a Jean George Vongerichten restaurant, and at that price point.

The setting is beautiful---I loved the earthy-artsy-chic, beautifully lit space, it evoked dining in an enchanted woods! Lovely linen-laid tables with mismatched vintage silverware and dishes and contemporary serving pieces are set among natural sculptures with an understory of twinkling lights. \nThe food was delicious and beautiful, each ingredient thoughtfully prepared, amazing flavors and aromas and colors. The Hake entree was especially good, perfectly prepared and exquisitely presented.

We were seated at the large wooden table, which was great for our group of 7. The restaurant can be a bit loud, but the food was delicious and the service amazing. The waiter asked for any food restrictions (a few members of the party were vegetarian) and continued to remember who was vegetarian and disclose whether pots were shared, whether a dessert dish had gelatin, etc.

We had a great time at ABC Kitchen on our last visit to New York City. There were four of us this time and we enjoyed many of the menu choices. We enjoyed the appetizers, including the market specials, and the lobster and hake entrees were excellent. The chocolate cake with marshmallow was amazing!! It was also fun to wander around the ABC Store before our dinner reservation. I would also like to say that the waitstaff were informative, very pleasant, and on top of things! Excellent experience!

From the moment we walked in we felt special. We had a 9 year old, two 50 year olds and two 70 year olds and we all received special attention. They brought a beautiful hot chocolate for my son and anniversary cupcakes for my folks. The wine was excellent and each food course was a study in making the featured food taste great. The beets were ridiculous as was the ricotta ravioli. And the salted Carmel ice cream sundae may be one of the best things I have ever had. Summer was a patient and lovely server. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

After having had many pleasant lunches at ABC Kitchen, we were disappointed in the service and ambiance this last visit. Although the dining room was only 75% filled, service was sketchy. After sitting at the table more than 10 minutes we finally flagged down one of the hosts in order to get menus and water. This continued throughout the meal as waiters, ours included, rushed past our table as well as the one next to us. The food was good, but having hoped for a relaxed and pleasant lunch, we ended up sorry we'd chosen the ABC Kitchen to meet.

We had to wait 30 minutes for our table despite having a reservation. When we finally went to the hostess stand to inquire about our table, only then were we actually seated. That would have been fine had we not proceeded to walk through the entire restaurant only to see that less than 50% of the tables were actually filled. I do not understand why we had to wait that long and no apology was offered. Then we were sat in the back of the restaurant, away from the beauty and decor that initially brought us there. The food and service were good, but the entire experience has left me with a very sour taste for the restaurant.

Food was really good specially the pastas. Me and my partner were celebrating our anniversary, I didn't expect any special because I didn't say anything when I made the reservation. We still got a super nice corner table and our server Dana was very quick to notice when my partner handed me a card. When dessert came, an extra tiny set of delicious chocolate tiny cupcakes came with a candle and 'happy anniversary' on the plate. Can't tell you how happy it makes me when service is top notch like this. Bravo! You all are killing it! PS: Kudos to the pastry team for that magnificent blood orange sorbet.

One of the most overrated food experiences I ever had. For my lunch I paid $30, before tax and tip, for a small Yankee Bean Soup, a pedestrian Portabella sandwich and a slice of dry almond cake with a dollop of melting apple sorbet and no drinks except for tepid tap water. A waste of time and money. I eat better in a neighborhood diner.

Went for lunch with a friend and it was an unacceptably disappointing meal in every sense. This was SO bad that I was embarrassed I had suggested the spot. First we had issues with the seating, with 3 staff being confused and giving us conflicting instruction. By the time we were finally seated, no apologies were offered. On to the food: two slices of stale BURNT bread were brought to the table. I had the raw fluke to start, which literally had 3x more horseradish than the fluke. Why would you ruin the delicate flavor of the fluke with a disgusting mountain of horseradish?! For main course, I had the crispy shrimp salad. First of all, this was the ugliest most unprofessional presentation I have ever seen at a restaurant. There was a base of soggy lettuce, covered with completely plain faro, with FOUR DEEP FRIED pieces of shrimp on top. I mean REALLY!? I can throw together a FAR better tasting, more presentable dish together in my sleep. I hadn't been back here in a year and WHAT A DECLINE. Truly sad!

My friend and I went here last week for Restaurant Week lunch. We were thankful to be able to snag a lunch time reservation. When I checked 2 weeks out it, was pretty full, and there were not many slots. We arrived on time and were seated right away. We were amazed at the size of the dining area (ABC looks a lot smaller and unassuming on the outside) but inside it was very big. The decor was kind of shabby chic/naturalist decor and we could see the back of the ABC Home store/ ABC Cocina next door. The place was half full when we arrived but filled up rather quickly. Wait staff was friendly and attentive enough at the beginning. We were able to order and got our appetizers pretty quickly. I had a vegetable soup and my friend had a salad. We were given bread and oil also. There was a bit of a pause between appetizer and entree (no big deal)And then a much longer lag between entree and dessert which was a little frustrating. Staff came by to make sure we had water, but we couldn't seem to flag the waitress down (never a good sign) We were here for a weekday lunch and had to go back to our offices so was hoping to be in and out in an hour- hour and 15 . We probably spent a little over an hour and a half for 3 courses which seems like a long time for a weekday lunch. Entrees were fresh and portion size was good for fine dining. I had the portabello sandwich. She had the mixed grain salad with shrimp. Desserts were also tasty. We had to rush the last course a bit and pay to check to make it back to work. I would like to come another time when I'm less rushed.

Admittedly, we were disappointed that the restaurant as not participating in Restaurant Week during dinner, but once we got over that... our server's recommendations were excellent. Everything we ordered had amazing flavor and a bit if uniqueness. The portion size was better than expected from both the Market Table and the Appetizer sections of the menu - Entree was good as well, though those sizes were as expected. Wines were reasonably priced. Wait staff was attentive throughout the meal (though they didn't ever pour wine for us... maybe we were too quick for them!) and pleasant to engage with.

Always love the ambience of this restaurant. Service is good but the food is just okay and not amazing. They need to put more effort on the presentation of their food. We ordered several appetizers and they all served in small plates like tapas style. However I don't think this is a tapas restaurant. If they come in small plates it should be mentioned on the menu. Also, some of the plates are just unpresentable, they were mostly chipped.

I came to New York from Toronto for my 24th birthday and I had my birthday dinner at ABC Kitchen. It was incredible!! ABC Kitchen is by far my favourite restaurant. From the moment I entered there was a coat check, lights were dim, candles and beautiful little lights everywhere, we were seated in this beautiful room, I truly felt like a princess. The service was impeccable and the food was to die for. I have never had a better flatbread! I had the brussels sprout flatbread and my mouth is watering just thinking about it! I had the cosmopolitan drink and it was so cool how they served it to me. They gave me a little birthday cupcake with a candle and chocolate writing on the plate which was so cute. And for dessert they had my favourite ice-cream, salted caramel!! The evening was absolutely perfect. I am in complete awe with this restaurant and I will go every time I'm in New York! I recommend making a reservation on open table ahead of time to ensure you have a table, because it is a very popular place! Thank you for making my 24th birthday so perfect!

The food was good, made with high quality ingredients. But, you would expect more of an awarded restaurant run by a 3 stars Chef. Nothing was mindblowing, and I would say it was ordinary cuisine.

Hands-down the best dining experience I've had in a very long time. Our server, Emily, set the tone for the whole meal-- genuine, comfortable and an absolute delight. I come up the the city a fair amount and so often at nice places you are smothered with pretension. Both Emily and Scotty who guided us through the meal absolutely made the experience. \n\nStarter: Crab Toast. A little heavy (so definitely split), but SO tasty. \nEntrees: Fried Chicken: most interesting tangy/spicy sauce accompanying the chicken. Delicious!! Crispy Pork Belly: incredible. The mashed potatoes that accompanied the meal on the plate added such a delectable comfort. \nDessert: SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT. Salted. Caramel. Sundae. I'm not a huge ice cream person but OH my. This was likely the best dessert I've ever had. From the caramel popcorn topping the ice cream, to the creamy ice cream itself, to the fudge and nuts that sit on the bottom of the bowl...just go for it.\n\nThe decor was also so thoughtful-- the lighting, the details-- wonderful! \n\nThank you, ABC Kitchen!

Never disappoints. I love this restaurant and have been there on and off since it first opened. My main complaint is it's so popular now that it is hard to time it so you get your reservation in before they are sold out of all but the very late slots. But persevere, because it is worth it.

We made reservations a month in advance (as is apparently necessary) for a date night. We ordered $200+ in food and in came out in two waves, one right after the other. It didn't seem like there was any thought regarding which dishes were appropriate to serve with one another, or whether too much food was being served at once (e.g., the pasta course came out with the main course). It seemed like they were trying to flip the table for another seating that night. We were out of there in just over an hour. Not happy.

We went for Restaurant Week, and I have to say that this was the first time I've been to a restaurant (during RW) and enjoyed every thing on the menu. Usually places reserve their crap food for the discount crowd, but not ABCK!\n\nNow onto my complaint: the service. We arrived and were told we couldn't be seated until our entire party was there. We were three people, and two were here. My one friend was 15 minutes late, which made my other girlfriend nervous because she was pressed for time. When we finally get seated, the dining room is EMPTY. There were maybe two tables seated. So why couldn't my friend who was pressed for time order early, instead of waiting 15 minutes out front? POOR PLANNING, HOSTESS!\n\nMy other service issue is that we ordered wine, but it never came, so we had to flag down another server who wasn't our waiter to bring it.\n\nLast, they have one of the computers situated smack dab in the middle of the dining room, in a high-trafficked area. During our lunch, I observed one dish being broken because of two waiters colliding and several nasty looks between waiters and bus boys trying to get by. As a former waitress, I can tell you that this is easily fixed if you put your computers on the outskirts of your dining room. \n\nThat said, if ABCK would invest in a higher echelon staff, it would match their food and be perfect.

Had reservations for 2:00 pm, party of 5 and were seated promptly at 2:00. Downhill from there. Orders were taken, got our first courses in a reasonable amount of time, but it was almost 45 min between placing our order and the time we got our main courses. We asked the waitress several times and were told it will be out any time. I had a dessert as part of the pre fixe and had to ask for that to be brought so we could get going. There seemed to be a total lack of concern about us. We had a 4:05 Amtrak at Penn Station and barely made it. Food was good, but being stressed over how long it took really limits your enjoyment. If you do decide to go, better allow extra time if you are on a schedule.

Being from Hawaii you might ask why fly ten and one half hours, 7000 miles to NYC. The answer is ABC Kitchen. My wife and I use to be regulars here. We lived in NYC till five years ago after teaching wine programs in Manhattan. Hawaii is our new home. Upon entering ABC we felt like VIP's. Many workers knew our names. We had asked for their white truffle pizza since we've had it here for many years at this time of year we weren't disappointed. But the unexpected eggs with shaved white truffle was an amazing perk. Yes, quite expensive but we traveled this far. Why not. Added to this was our all time favorite, Crab Toast with a one inch mound of the best crab you can buy. What a way to start our trip back to our roots. \nTHANK YOU ABC Kitchen.

We loved both the food + the decor at ABC Kitchen! The freshness/quality ingredients combined with the spices/seasonings were superb! The roasted carrot salad, crab toast & sea bass were our favorite dishes especially when paired with a crisp Alsatian white wine on a hot afternoon. I enjoyed browsing the housewares/furniture in the adjoining store first and then admiring the photography, natural wood and mirrored pieces decorating the restaurant & bar. The staff was super helpful & friendly and the costs are very reasonable for NYC. We were visiting from out of town and staying in the neighborhood and loved being able to walk nearby to check it out!

The ambiance is great....we had a reservation on the early side and noise level never got very high. The decor is stunning and we loved comfortable chairs. Service was good although we poured our own wine during the meal. Appetizers were very good although carrot salad very spicy... beet salad delicious. Entrees were disappointing mostly because of the heavy hand on the spices and one of our party almost couldn't eat his entree due to the spicy seasonings so he couldn't enjoy it. The lobster's delicate flavor was unfortunately lost in the spices as was another dish. The roast chicken was completely unappetizing as the second piece underneath had no skin and was basically a plain piece of meat with no seasoning and it tasted gamey. Having had the best roast chicken of my life at Balthazar's and expecting something equally good, this was really a miss. Desserts were very good and wine list great for us!

This brunch was a disappointment. With all that I've read about this place, I thought it would be amazing, but it just wasn't. The food portions were microscopic. Like I am talking maybe a half a cup of scrambled eggs and six home fries on the side. The 'salad' was a tiny pile of raw, julienned apples and pears -- and the definitely didn't use the whole of each fruit. And I am not even a big eater. At practically every other restaurant on the planet, I would be taking home a to-go box with half a meal in it. The hardest thing to stomach, though, was when the waiter told me I'd have to pay extra to get some jam for the burnt, tasteless bread he brought to the table. Come to think of it, he probably charged us for that too. The atmosphere was lovely and the first waiter who took our drink order was nice, but unless you haven't eaten for three days and would therefore welcome a few tablespoons of eggs, I'd go to one of the many other options in the city for brunch.

We did have the crab toast, which was very special, but the breakfast items are breakfast items and there wasn't any element of uniqueness that was brought to them to take them to the next level.

Lunch service was slow, with entree taking almost 40 minutes to get to our table from the time we ordered (or some good 25 minutes away from appetizer). Food was good, but experience would have been better if I were not constrained by time and service weren't so slow.

We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday at ABC Kitchen. The place is exquisite. The food was one of the best we've had. The crab toast was very fresh & the calamari was perfect, hearty bite sizes. We ordered the salmon, hake and sea bass and the pork confit. All the dishes were seasoned and well executed. The pumpkin dessert was heavenly! and last but not least, our waiter presented a sweet Happy Birthday wish to my daughter. We look forward to our next dining experience at ABC Kitchen.

First time at this restaurant and I would most certainly return. Everything we ordered was nicely prepared, fresh and flavorful. Our server was cheery and was very knowledgeable about all of the menu items and was careful to be sure that nothing was served that would interfere with food allergies. We had a pizza as an appetizer and it was absolutely scrumptious. The mushrooms were so fresh and full of flavor. Our fish mains were also delicious. Can't wait to return!

I make a point of dining at ABC Kitchen for brunch on every NYC visit. We enjoyed the delicious pretzel crusted fried calamari - which was fresh and hot. Their house baked bread w/olive oil is outstanding. I shared the turkey sandwich w/extra jalapeños and our dining companions shared the eggs benedict. They had the creme fraiche blackberry ice cream and chocolate mint sorbet for dessert. We shared the ice cream sundae with house made Cracker Jacks (no comparison to the original - SO much better). Every dish was sublime. The decor is restored historic space - beautiful. Wait staff is efficient without being rushed. Very friendly. Never disappoints.

This is my third time at ABC Kitchen and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants in the city due to the delicious food, the variety of entrees and the ambiance. We had the kale salad (good start) the salmon entrée (delicious!!! and nice size) and the chocolate cake for dessert (very good but it was a rather small piece). The cocktails are a bit pricey but comparable to what you would pay at an upscale restaurant these days.

The only negative is they give you such a hard time about reservations and then invariably the restaurant is at least a third empty. It appears to be a strategy to stay hot. Unnecessary since the food is good enough to keep people coming back. But the reservation people are horrible.

The restaurant was difficult to book, but oddly, it was almost empty when we walked in.

Best contemporary Indian restaurant in US so far. The use of non-traditional proteins such as Duck, Ribs, Beef, Foie Gras, Pork Belly and Wild Boar in Indian cuisine, masterfully cooked using authentic Indian spices, creates an amazing experience!

Between us, the best dish we had was the mushroom bolognese and it was excellent. We sampled several other dishes and a desert and all were fine, but not memorable. The wine list is very expensive---particularly for a place that serves pizza and hamburgers. No complaints with having some expensive bottles, but it would be good to have some interesting wines for less than $80 a bottle and there was not much. There were many that were will over $100.\nThe service was great but it was offset by the noise level and the lack of ambiance. It was so loud---fine if you want to go for a pizza or a hamburger and a glass of wine. But we went for dinner and a bottle and the tab was high. Would not return with all the choices in NYC.

The mains were good to very good and the overall service was friendly but did not hit the high notes. \nI guess the value was reasonable because the main dishes were about $10 less than the fine dining spots although a bit on the small side. \nI am happy we checked ABC off the list but we won't be back.

We found the dishes to be hit and miss and we also felt we were a little rushed in eating them. We love our food (all cuisines and price ranges!) and food is a big part of travel for us. We really enjoyed our mains (all had fish) but the other small dishes we shared were mostly just okay. Given how popular this place is we had high expectations, but we did think it was both overrated and not the best value for money. We were happy with our food absolutely - but it wasn't as innovative / interesting flavour as I was expecting. The sashimi tuna (in my opinion) was too salty and the calamari was well cooked but lacking in anything interesting. Loved the peppers though as a side dish.

Lovely setting, comfortable seating, great hospitality. Most important are great tasting, well preapared brunch dishes. Omelettes, eggs Benedict, salads and sandwiches all with slightly imaginative twists like the addition of fried clams and hot sauce to the scrambled eggs make brunch delicious and interesting. Patient informed and welcoming service makes the experince thoroughly enjoyable. They also make a great Bloody Mary.

Restaurant is loud, but has a very open layout. Very diverse dress code, from baseball cap and shorts to 3 piece suits. I was a bit confused as to what the dress code was here. Wait staff were a bit slow on taking order and attentiveness, but food certainly helped make up for that. The end of the night was the best, which was that the restaurant helped to make our anniversary that more special by remembering the note when I made the reservation.

I almost couldn't believe that I managed to get a lunch reservation during restaurant week because this restaurant is always filled up. And now I understand the hype! It was a bit annoying having to wait 20min to be seated, but the rest of the meal went great. The fluke ceviche was tart and fresh. I loved my cherry cider- very refreshing, especially for the summer. The service was excellent. My friends enjoyed their meals also. I really loved the decor too-I think it'd be great for girlfriends get-togethers. I can't wait to be back! (If I can get a reservation)

Food was gorgeous - but server was kind of quiet / could have been a better host for our client lunch - it was very hard to hear him and he'd speak to one or two of us versus the whole table, and a gal cleared away my fruit plate when I was half finished and I had to be the one to suggest they take it off my bill, which made me feel odd.

I would not recommend this restaurant. Our group shared several dishes so everyone could try them. None of them were remarkable, two of them were inedible. The homemade sausage on greens was simply super plain and the bed of parsley was straight forward bitter parsley with a bit of dressing. The pasta dish with the veal meatballs was inedible. We all agreed it tasted like liquid plastic or some other chemical. The fried calamari were just average. The homemade ricotta with toast and strawberries tasted like bland mascarpone with an extra dose of oil, plain mashed up strawberries with a side of tasteless oily toast. The mushroom pizza was a soggy mess since the pile of raw mushrooms that were 'melted down' in the oven created a water puddle in the middle of the pizza. There are many better choices of good restaurants in this area and this place is definitely overrated and not worth going back to ever.

Second time we've dined here and still does not disappoint. The menu offers a wide variety and the food is definitely top notch / high quality. Fresh ingredients stand out and the flavor combinations really leave a lasting impression. We started with there 'staple' appetizers: the crab toast and the roasted carrots with avocado salad. Meat, fresh lumps of crab sit atop a buttered toast - add the twist of lemon for acidity, and this one's a winner. The roasted carrots & avocado also complement each other well - just the right amount of 'smokiness' in the carrots to go with the fresh, creamy avocado. For the mains, we had their burger & the fried chicken. While the burger patty may not have been the star of the burger, the combo with the pickled jalapenos really made the burger stand out overall. Fried chicken was incredibly juicy and flavorful. Couldn't mop up enough of their 'hot butter' sauce. Ended up skipping dessert as we were stuffed, but we know their famous popcorn ice cream is a must have. Overall, definitely a great special occasion dinner - would love to return again.... and again... and again.

It is usually a pleasure to dine at ABC. Love the elegant rustic-meets-modern atmosphere. But this time what was planned to be a relaxed business lunch turned into a 2 1/2 hour exercise in 'where is our waiter?' Also, while the menu is purposefully limited to seasonal, fresh foods, they should still offer a wider selection - it seems that nearly everything was spiced to the hilt with habaneros and/or jalapenos.

While the ambiance and service was top notch, the food fell below my albeit high expectations. I had the lobster and the first two bites were phenomenal and then I realized that that was all the meat there was. For a $40 entree, I needed more food! The carrot, avocado salad was a disappointment. The proportions of ingredients seemed off somehow and I didn't even feel like finishing mine. The raw fluke appetizer that sounded so good on the menu page was only okay too. I didn't taste any of the advertised chilies, but got a lot of olive and dill. The shishito pepper-okra side dish special was also good (loved the bright green and the texture of the okras was spot on), but not crazy-good. I think the peppers could have been cooked longer. There was hardly any black on some of them! Again though, my expectations were high because this restaurant is among my friends' favorites in the city. I would try it again and give it another shot, maybe for dinner next time. I think the concepts were so great, but maybe the day I was there (granted Labor Day weekend), some of the execution was slightly off. Also, my reservation was for the tail end of lunch service, so maybe that too had something to do with it...

My experience here is consistent with the few other Jean Georges restaurants around the city. Cool concept, posh settings, beautiful décor, eh food. It's definitely worth trying since everyone talks about it and you don't want to miss out. The décor is really cool and it's clear that someone puts in the effort to make it feel a modern antique shop where all of the utensils and plate settings are picked out with the purpose of identifying timelessly beautiful pieces with a story. The food, and maybe it's just not my cup of tea, is bland, overly meticulously done without a purpose. Just not my thing. Feels like I'm paying for someone else to have a great time prepping cutesy food but who cares about what I'm tasting. But, again, I feel like that when I go to all of his restaurants, which clearly is not everyone.

This is our second time at ABC Kitchen, and both times were good experiences. The first time was with a very large group, and the second time was with just my husband. The service was always warm and generally on point. A note on the food, however. Interestingly, both times I went, all members of my party and I agree that the main dishes play second fiddle to the appetizers/starters and side dishes. Since I went with a large party, we ordered a variety of main courses and then when I went with my husband, we again felt the same. This is mainly because the sides and apps are much more interesting and a bit more refined. We have tried every single appetizer, and many of the toasts. My favorite are the squash toast and the crab toast. The fluke is delicate and delicious and the salads are well balanced. Even the roasted beets are nice and they are very common now. We also love the desserts. The main courses tend to be rather boring and mild. We have had the fish (bland), burger (pretty tasty), pastas (not bad), chicken (just okay). In general, I love this restaurant, but next time I go back, we will stick with the apps as they are the winners.

The desserts were out of this world - we each ordered the rhubarb cake, ice cream, and cookies - they were so good, we couldn't pick a favorite. Be careful with the entrees - my girlfriends each had the pasta and loved it. I chose what I thought was the healthier option of crunchy fluke salad - it was neither healthy nor a salad. There were almost no greens, but 3 big deep fried pieces of fish, and mixed in with the few tiny pieces of greens were potato chips - I was disappointed with my almost perfect lunch.

The first time we ate at ABC kitchen about one year ago or so, the food was creative and excellent. This time it was very disappointing with the exception of what did not need real cooking skills like the lobster. For example I had ordered an appetizer with morel mushrooms, first, the morels were hard to find as it was mostly a bean dish and the entire plate was covered with a thick layer of grated cheese, so no taste of this delicious delicate mushroom was to be found and overall it was very salty. My wife' s fish dish was ridiculous so only the crab bruschetta and the lobster were nice but this would be very hard to mess up! Not going back!

On August 10, 2016, dining at ABC Kitchen for lunch was just as palatable as my first visit in 2015, during the Restaurant Week promotion. When my friend and I arrived, we were seated promptly and given menus. Our waitress Mary Alice and the waiters were very accommodating and most gracious. We both ordered kale salad as an appetizer, skuna salmon with carrots as an entree, and roasted peaches with fresh raspberries and pistachio ice cream for dessert. The meal satiated our appetites and we both expressed our satisfaction to the waitress and waiters for their attentiveness to our dining experience. The portion for each course was adequate and prepared to our specifications (i.e., the salmon was 'just right'). We were not rushed and encouraged to take our time. I recommend choices for poultry and beef be considered for possible entrees on your 2017 lunch menu for Restaurant Week. I also recommend that the bread be warmed when served. ABC Kitchen is my best choice for exceptional dining out! We'll come back again!

Jean-Georges Vongerichten's restaurants rarely disappoint; the food is always excellent, the service attentive without being annoying and you can usually count on a good selection of beverages. ABC Kitchen is no exception. There were so many things we wanted to try that it was difficult to narrow down our choices. The pretzel-crusted calamari was delicious as an appetizer, so was the crab toast. For main courses, the salmon was especially good - better than the grilled lobster which was plain. The strawberry pavlova was light and refreshing as was the lemon blueberry trifle. The only complaint - every table around us had to use their phone as a flashlight to read the menu.

Although the ambiance was fun , my 70YO mother found the noise level unbearable. The service was great as usual but the food was oddly extremely hot . All 4 main courses were way too hot.

He also mentioned that they used chili in all dishes (which is fine by me) and this years chili must have been even hotter. All is well but I still think they should have noticed it.

i made a mistake thinking restaurant week included evening meals, but we decided to go ahead with it. and the food and service were good but fatally flawed ... the waiter brought the two of us three pieces of bread. we shared that while waiting, and then my salmon dish came. it looked beautiful, with a greenish lovely gravy of sorts, even though i thought the serving was a bit skimpy, but without being served on any grain, and without the waiter replenishing the bread, what was the point? the meal might have been spectacular, but this bit of cluelessness really killed it. what were they thinking - or were they thinking at all? i can't believe they are inattentive, and want to like the restaurant so much i'll try it again - the food was good all around. but really, that oversight spoiled a meal. unfortunate.

Although the room design and particularly the vintage and modern mix of tableware was good-- the food was a huge let down. We went for lunch, I ordered lentil soup which was maybe 1/2 of a cup, if that, thin and watery, barely covering the bottom of a tiny bowl-- absolutely the tiniest serving I have ever seen outside a thimble-- no flavor, lukewarm-- $15.00!!! Ridiculous. We also had fish, which was just OK. The chocolate cake for dessert had wilted marshmallow icing-- like it had sat around a bit too long. The servers disapppeared. Never again .

Came for restaurant week lunch. Never been here before. I LOVED the weird ravioli with egg and ragu entree. Just incredible. I thought the veggie appetizer and the dessert were not really that special, just OK. I liked the non-alcoholic cocktail but $7 was too much money for this. A similar drink costs $4 at Red Cat. I felt that the reception was somewhat chilly. I had to ask for a menu after sitting at the table for a while and servers actively avoiding my gaze and gestures. And several times I had to ask twice for simple things like an extra napkin, with servers again actively avoiding my gaze. I also found the restaurant too noisy.

My experience was OK - the food wasn't horrible but it wasn't outstanding either. Service was ok, friendly but not warm. For all the hype and how it is to get a dinner reservation, it wasn't worth it. Lobster was overcooked, bowtie pasta was too sweet and ruined the entire meal. The crab toast and fried chicken were great. But for the price and hype, I expected 'outstanding and memorable' and it was just alright.

This was an extremely disappointing meal. While none of the food was really bad (except \nthe fries which were soggy!) nothing was particularly good. Not what one would expect from a restaurant with a good reputation. The restaurant was at best 60% full when we arrived and even by the time we finished it was never entirely full. There was a ton of staff walking around yet we waited 20 minutes between our two appetizers and the main courses. \n\nMy son (26 and a real foodie) said at the end of the meal: If some offered to take him there again and pay he would not rule it out. But he would never ask to go there specifically again.

We dined at ABC Kitchen for lunch during restaurant week, but ended up ordering off the regular menu instead. We weren't dazzled by the choices on the RW menu, but diners near us seemed to be enjoying the items thoroughly. The service was excellent - friendly, professional, and efficient. The bread was magnificent! Our waiter recommended the crab toast, which I ordered. It was very good - light and tasty. My dining companion had the tuna appetizer, which was delightful - light and fresh, citrusy and slightly spicy. For lunch, we had red snapper over spinach & a crispy fish sandwich. Both were delicious. The fish sandwich was very large and the accompanying spicy slaw was terrific. The snapper was delicate and flavorful.

After extensive reviews for a wonderful place in which to have a very late lunch, we chose ABC Kitchen. Perfect choice. Deceiving large in scale, the restaurant is elegant and understated in appearance. Terrific vibe, even at lunch. We had a 7:00 event to attend, so dinner before would have been difficult. Honing in on a late lunch after arriving from Atlanta was spot on. The lunch menu did not make you feel as if you were not 'getting the good stuff.' We shared the crab toasts, a special goat cheese toast and the tuna sashimi. All were wonderful and just the perfect start. I had the sea bass which was the right proportion and taste. One son had the akushi burger, which was great. The winner of the table?? How strange, but the Turkey sandwich. I never knew it could be that good. Enjoy a special meal. Worth it.

I think over the last 5 years, I've taken most of my close friends and family to ABC Kitchen at some point because it's probably my favorite restaurant in the city, especially given the relatively modest prices in comparison to other restaurants that prepare and serve food at this caliber. I also love the decorative scheme, the fact that no ones plates or silverware look the same, and just the general feel of the whole place.\n\nThis was a special occasion though as I was celebrating my 6 month anniversary with my girlfriend, and it's been a running joke that I drag her to all sorts of new restaurants I'm excited about, but I've never taken her to my favorite restaurant.\n\nI made my reservation, went by and explained in person that it was a special occasion and asked for my favorite table in the restaurant (you'll have to find it yourself, I don't want to have to fight other people for it :)). When we showed up the night of, they had made sure to save us the table I wanted and the food was excellent as always.\n\nThe server was great as well and my girlfriend was really impressed with the quality of the experience as well. She said she hopes she doesn't have to wait another 6 months to eat here again.\n\nAnd then, despite having not mentioned it once during the course of our meal, or me having said anything since we got there, when they brought out the desserts we ordered, they also brought out two tiny little cupcakes with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate, and it was a really nice surprise for both of us, though given that we had gone through 4 appetizers, a pizza, an entree, and ordered 2 desserts (she wanted to make sure she got the most of the experience, who knows when we'd be back :)), we probably didn't need two more cupcakes.\n\nI think I've reviewed ABC here before, so if you're looking for more substantial reviews of the food and service, you should be able to find it, but trust me on this one, you will have a great experience here every time.

What promised to be a lovely evening was negatively impacted by the inconsiderate service. Our appetizers arrived in a timely manner but then there is an inordinate lapse of time. All around us we notice people receiving their entrees. We are beginning to wonder what is going on. At which time the server brings us a complimentary appetizer which neither of us were particularly enthralled with and says that the dish is to apologize for the long wait...but offers no explanation. The wait got longer. When I see that the people who arrived 40 minutes after us--got their entree at the same time ours finally arrived--I fi inquired as to what the problem was--I was told there was a big party--but it just seemed to delay our table's service--so I was both puzzled and disappointed.

We really enjoyed our meal and were very excited we were able to take advantage of restaurant week since reservations are difficult on short notice The restaurant week lunch menu offered good variety The slivered raw fluke was delicious as well as the kale salad and tomato raspberry gazpacho. The salmon was perfectly prepared with wonderful sause and vegetables - be sure to save bread to wipe the plate - not the best etiquette but it was that delicious ! The choice of dessert was great as well, I think because of the hot weather we all selected the roasted peaches with pistachio ice cream - a perfect end to a delicious meal. The interior design of the restaurant is soothing on the eyes - however many newer designs these days do not address sound acoustics and it is very noisy and hard to easily converse having to repeat things several times. But the food experience compensates and worth the visit It is a great value during restaurant week but for me it will be a special occasion venue.

It is pretty hard to get a reservation for four people during the peak hours. I did it 30 days in advance and luckily got one at 7:30pm on a Monday. We got there on time and it was packed already. We waited 10 minutes for our table ready.\n\nWe tried following stuff:\n1. Crab toast - kind of oily but taste really good. Recommend!\n2. Pretzel dusted calamari - so so, not special and the portion is small comparing to the price $18 \n3. Line caught tuna sashimi - ok\n4. Shaved raw fluke -presentation is in Michelin classic way and taste is good.\n5. Fettuccine with pesto - good. Small portion is not that much\n6. Mushrooms & egg pizza - good\n7. Black Sea bass - it's tender but the herbs source made it a little bit sour taste.\n8. Baby salmon - we asked between rare and medium rare. It was good.\n9. Summer beans as side dish - recommend! I love they put hazelnuts inside \n10. Cherry pie - ok\n11. Sundae with salt caramel ice cream - recommend!

We went for Sunday brunch and expectations were met. It was a very casual dining experience (i.e., waiters/waitresses wore plaid shirts). The food was good, local and fresh although nothing was outstanding. The atmosphere was quite noisy even for being in a corner table, and decor was interesting, as items could be purchased upstairs in the ABC home store. One complaint- the chandeliers needed a good dusting...

excellent food- fresh and delicious. Favorites were the peas with ginger, the pizzas and the carmel ice cream dessert. \n\nNice ambiance- but too loud! Difficult to have a conversation.

Second time at ABC. First time was for lunch. Dinner provides similar quality but much more busy and hence, extremely loud. Difficult to strike a conversation with the person in front of you loud.

Went here with just my girlfriend for her 21st Birthday. What we ordered: Mushroom Farm Egg Pizza, Maine Lobster, Crab Toast, Apricot Pannacotta, Pistachio and Chocolate Mint Ice Cream. For drinks we got: 3 Thyme Lemonades, 1 Carrotini. The best part of the meal was the Crab Toast, worth more $16 in value. The Thyme Lemonade and both desserts were divine. 3 scoops of Ice Cream for $9; not at all bad considering the cocktails here are $16. The pistachio ice cream was something imagined only in dreams. The Carrotini was good, but in terms of value it was not worth it. The Thyme Lemonade however came in a tall glass with an actual piece of flowering thyme and a sugar rim; a delicious first legal drink. As for the Mushroom Farm Egg pizza, it was not our thing. It was a good value for the amount of food, but we didn't finish it. It was soggy, and the taste was 3/5. The lobster was $42; a little steep for us but priced for a special occasion. The display was beautiful, the portion was large, and it was delicious. The server knew it was my girlfriend's birthday and they gave us a complimentary cupcake with 'Happy Birthday' written sweetly on the plate. It was unexpected and such a nice gesture. Speaking of service; we had two different waitresses and both were very pleasant. Our reservation was at 3pm on a Saturday. We got to sit at a table meant to seat 4 which was thoughtful and spacious. We had privacy and the ambience was delightful. By the end of our meal they had dimmed the lights and lit a candle on our table. I would definitely come back here and recommend ABC Kitchen to anyone looking to dine for a special occasion.

After trying many times previously, I finally got a reservation. For all that trouble and time - and based on reviews of this restaurant I've read - I expected an absolutely spectacular meal. The food we ate was certainly good, but not as special or wonderful as the hype would lead one to believe. And the noise level detracts from the quality of the experience, too. But, the service was top-rate! I will go back again - if I can get in - but with lower expectations.

With only a small banner outside with ABC name on it, it is easy to miss and pass by. Although entrance is narrow, the restaurant floor extends far back and it is spacious.

Ever since a NYC-savvy friend recommended ABC Carpet & Home, I make ABC Kitchen a must-do whenever I travel to New York. Woe is me when I forget to make reservations, at least a month in advance! Otherwise, the wait to get a table...is...45 minutes. My daughter and I make lunch here our tradition. We love the soups (best when there's a cheddar puff floating in the lentil soup!), and we love the fiddlehead ferns (when they're in season), and we love love LOVE the salted caramel ice cream (always in season--3 scoops to share!), drenched in dark chocolate sauce and sprinkled with caramel popcorn. THIS IS HEAVEN ON EARTH. Don't miss it. Reserve a table at ABC Kitchen, NOW. And before you eat, ride the elevator or climb the stairs to the sixth floor to gaze at the rugs. You may die from color intoxication. Then walk down, if you have time, and linger over the beauty on each floor, and finally bliss out on the china and pottery and tiny little beautiful things from around the world, artfully displayed on the first floor of ABC Carpet & Home. You will be delighted, when you go in to the Kitchen for your meal, to see your table set with many of the items from the first floor: handmade gold-rimmed salt bowls, mismatched antique china, little vases filled with tiny flowers...

My wife and I absolutely loved ABC Kitchen! This was the highlight (restaurant) for our trip to NYC - from Nashville. Some friends of ours that live in Manhattan suggested it for a nice dinner out. We made a reservation to celebrate our 10yr anniversary...\n\nWe had just attended the Tonight Show & it let out much later than anticipated so I called the restaurant to see if they could possibly hold our reservation for us (already 20 mins late). They said they would do what they could & seat us when a table became available. We arrived nearly 50mins after our reservation time & they seated us almost immediately with no fuss.\n\nThe staff hosts were extremely kind and helpful, our server was very knowledgeable/insightful with his suggestions, the ambiance was romantic, and the food was exceptional!! The crab toast was my favorite thing, so flavorful I almost wanted to save it for dessert, HAHA!\n\nThe server & chef surprised us with a sampling of their desserts and a chocolate scripted note congratulating us on our anniversary. It was a perfect ending to a memorable night. We can't recommend them enough.\n\nThanks again for making us feel so special!

ABC Kitchen hit out of the park. Fantastic service which makes everything that much better. The menu was so interesting and he (I think Travis was his name) guided us through it with fantastic recommendations. As the food came out, each dish was incredible. You can't say better than the next because they were all great, but normally you know what you wouldn't order again and what you would order again and we would order everything again and go back to try new things as well. The space is beautiful too and it was a fun night!!

Overall, we enjoyed our lunch at the ABC, but were unhappy with a couple of things.\n\nFirstly, even though NYC is expensive compared to most cities, ABC is quite pricy for the portion size and cooking quality of the food we ate. For example, the chicken paillard was slightly overcooked and dried out at the edges - I needed a steak knife to cut it.\n\nSecondly, the service would best be described as perfunctory i.e. going through the motions, rather than enjoying what they were doing. \n\nFor example, we couldn't locate our server when we wanted the check and had to ask a passing member of staff. Then, after I put down $120 in bills and was looking in my wallet for some small notes to make up a 15% tip (we wouldn't tip less) our server appeared, said 'will you be wanting any change?', picked up the $120 and left. No 'thanks', no 'enjoy your day', nothing. So she got around 13% tip and we left with a bad feeling about the place.

Three of us were seated at a table in the big room, but the noise at lunch time made it really impossible to hear each other. We asked to be changed to the quieter smaller room at the back. After several tries at putting us at another table in the big room, we were moved to the other room. This was accomplished through the efforts of the Maitre d', Josh, who kept trying even though it didn't seem possible at first. It was an enjoyable meal, although I found the watermelon gazpacho to be much too salty. The rest was excellent.\nThank you Josh!

Two great dishes - tuna sashimi and crab toast. Two not so great dishes - pretzel fried calamari (very chewy) and the mushroom pizza with egg.
