Kitchenette - Uptown Ratings and Reviews

Had brunch. Regular fare with a little homegrown eccentricity. Loved the peach rhubarb compote on my waffle and hubby's pancakes were filled with fat fresh berries. The pancake by itself was super tasty. Fun, spunky staff makes you feel like you are at your local diner that was just taken over by a gourmand from the big city.

As overcrowded as this neighborhood favorite is pretty much all the time, the incredible no nonsense cooking is worth a little wait. To. Die. For. Breakfasts. Real biscuits and gravy. Grits are an acquired taste - well, it's the texture really - but the Kitchenette cheesy grits are amazing. Even the Yankee grits novices in our group liked them. And then there are the stupendous desserts. Yes, they are pricey. But you won't find a better tasting cake anyplace in Manhattan. Cake to linger over. But we took it to go, since we felt guilty about staying too long when others were waiting. Good coffee. Cheerful, fast-paced service. Noisy but cute tin ceiling. DO MAKE A RESERVATION, especially for three or more.
Cute place -- lots of charm. Food was average. Host and server very nice but slow- no hurries here. We ordered two different burgers, mac and cheese with buffalo mozz, chicken with waffles, waffles with compote: all okay, no swoons. Red velvet cake and strawberry milkshake are exceptional.

We have come here twice so far and we got the same waiter both times and it's great. Albert M was our waiter and he gives excellent customer service! Try the mimosas and the protein plate. The ice cream is def to die for.
Great Brunch, but waited with a reservation.
We arrived to a very busy scene with lots of people waiting to be seated for their 11:30, 12:00, and 12:30 reservations. Although we waited 40 minutes after our reservation time. We enjoyed a delicious meal which arrived very quickly. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. For Sunday Brunch, I would try to get here earlier in the morning or after the lunch rush.
Great for brunch
I came here with a friend for brunch this past weekend. It took a bit of time to be seated but after that, the service was good. The waitress was really nice and funny. I had the chicken and waffles and it was delicious. The space is small so it may not be ideal for groups but the food is really good. I would return.

Ordered 2 mimosas, they were out of champagne. They substituted with super watered down sangria. Ordered hot chocolate with marshmallows, they were out of marshmallows. Ordered french toast, they gave me pancakes. No amount of blueberries or syrup could fix the pancakes or French toast.
I chose this restaurant because of the great ratings and feedback. Maybe they had an off day but I would never eat at or recommend this place to anyone.
Great find for Christmas in NYC
This was an unexpected Christmas Day gift in the form of great food and great service for those of us in NYC for Christmas. Dustin was an outstanding server who added such flair to our outstanding Christmas Brunch. The Apple Pie Mimosa was a great touch. Hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows for my kids. The pancakes were delicious. The turkey sausage was the best I have ever had. Highly recommended for locals and out of towners.
FUN FOR BRUNCH
Kitchenette Uptown is a lot of fun for brunch. The menu is full of delicious comfort food options. The staff is super friendly, and the service is very good. My only complaint is the noise level . . . We go here whenever we're in the neighborhood--I just wish we lived closer!
Wait staff..makes all the difference!
Great little find for brunch and lunch. Loved the neighborhood vibe on Amsteerdam.... Delicious treats, cakes, milkshakes..fun Sunday find. Despite what has been said about Open Table reservations....ours was honored and with a gracious hostess and one fabulous waitress (Judith?) who used to be a caterer...It showed...and we made sure she knew how pleased we were with the food and her awesome service...we will be back...soon!!
Great food: Problems honoring reservation times
The food is great and the ambiance is fun. Busy, busy but fun, fun. However, we made a reservation through Open Table for 5 people. I know it can be difficult to manage seating precisely but we were not seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time. In fact, walk-ins were seated in the same amount of time as we were leaving us with the question, "What is the value of using Open Table and making a reservation at Kitchenette?" The answer: apparently none.
I dined here three years ago and really enjoyed it. This time I was underwhelmed with the food and the process for making reservations.
I made a brunch reservation Saturday around 10:00 AM for that afternoon. When we arrived we were told they do not honor reservations made after 9:00 AM. This information should have been posted on their website or perhaps they should remove the OpenTable reservation option all together. Our server was fantastic, but the food was average.
