Had such an amazing experience at ABC kitchen. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable about the menu and gave great recommendations. The environment was romantic and perfect for a NYC date night.

Very disappointed!! The store is so cool looking and so is the eatery, but it is downhill from there. Ho hum food with a waiter that was so sasdy we wanted to walk out on him! Noise level was so bad we could not converse with each other. Save your money this place is not worth it!

Considering the buzz around this place, we were not so much disappointed but not entirely thrilled with it. I think we perhaps came at the wrong time. We dined here for brunch and although the food was very good, it wasn't a WOW experience that we've had with Jean-Georges previously. 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. I'm sure if we had eaten lunch or dinner, we'd tell a different story. Overall, the restaurant itself is beautifully done, we had exceptional service and we'd come back to try the other menu items another time.

Been wanting to try this restaurant for months and it did not let down! Fantastic food. Great service. Hip ambiance. Fresh ingredients. I'd recommend this to anyone seeking a special meal; but don't forget to book in advance!

I didn't love it. Everybody said you have to go to ABC kitchen . The food was fair and very overpriced. The service was fair .. It was really nothing great and definitely not a place you have to go do.

Enjoyed the Little Owl. My wife had a lovely halibut that was excellent. I had steak and ordered it medium rare. It came out medium well. I am not one to send a meal back, especially when it would have delayed my wife's meal. I would simply say that the Little Owl is not a place to order steak but excellent for other items. FYI, server was more than happy to get me a new steak but I refused, very professional staff.

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. This 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. I 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. The 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. And 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. I 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.

My wife and I met our daughter, who works nearby, for lunch. She couldn't believe that I got reservations (through Open Table) on fairly short notice, as she said it is the hottest spot in the area for lunch. We can see why. The menu is wonderful, the food is great and the service is good. OK, maybe its a little pricey, but you get something far above average. Our daughter told us it is the only place in the area that the owner of the company that she works for will eat. And of course my wife and daughter had to walk through ABC Carpet on our way out, which didn't hurt.

We had a fabulous time at ABC. I had been before for brunch (and loved it) but this was my first time for dinner. The food was delicious, the service was great, and the noise level was perfect for a conversation. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Overall excellent. Would go back again and again.
Worth the wait!
My boyfriend and I have been trying to get an ABC Kitchen reservation FOR AGES. But it was definitely worth the wait! We started out with a lovely cheese board and then followed it up with the halibut and the sea bass. Both entrees were such lovely pairings. My light, fresh halibut was excellently paired with a spicy chili sauce and fresh greens. But the best part of my night was the basil and mint pane cotta that I got for dessert. It was like nothing I've ever eaten -- bursting, bright flavors and completely unexpected. Yes, ABC Kitchen is certainly expensive, but it's not a place to eat every night of the week and definitely worth it for a special occasion!
Excellence all around
I had my graduation lunch here with a party of 8. The service was impeccable. They brought out complimentary dishes from the chef and every person who approached my table congratulated me on my accomplishment. They made me and my party feel incredibly special. The food, of course, was delicious. Clean flavors, good sized portions, attention to every detail. Thank you so much for making my day so easy. Everyone at the table remarked on how good the service and the food was. Incredible. I cannot thank you enough. They sat us early, were very patient, the whole experience was a delight.

Not worth it
Food was OK, but not worth it's reputation. Calamari was extremely boring. Annoying service including practically pulling paper place mats out from under your elbows between courses.
Food was great but the service was terrrible!
I brought my 3 daughters as a treat while in NYC. The food was good. The service was terrible. The waiter never once came back to our table once he took our order. Someone else brought our food. We had empty water glasses the majority of our meal. Two of us had ordered a drink from the bar that was not drinkable. It was terrible. But no one would come to our table so we could ask for something else. With so many wonderful choices to dine in NYC it was very disappointing to have this experience.

The food was not as good as the last time. The steak special was too fatty and the sides were too oily. The service started on a good foot, but the waiter sort of forgot about us. Ok, but not what it's cracked up to be these days.
The restaurant was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent. Knowledgeable and friendly. The food was wonderful..fresh, exciting flavours, beautifully presented. My starter of roasted carrots and avocado was delicious. Interesting wine list as they try to use organic wines only. Sadly very few wines from the US but there were some and the one we chose was good (Tocai Fruliano from Hudson wines).
Had the scrambled eggs with oysters which where cooked perfectly. Had two ginger magaritas : best I have ever had. Had the mushroom pizza with egg. Was wonderful. Had the crab and green toast. Was amazing. Great food and service. Our number one in newyork.
