The pasta with spring vegetables and peas and the pizza with shaved asparagus were outstanding. Everything was so fresh and tasty.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemA great dining experience in the Big Apple. Great service, delicious food and a great atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite in NYCThis place is awesome, fresh, local , organic..amazing. We went twice in 3 days it was so good. I highly recommend this place to anyone who loves good, fresh seasonal food5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second visit...Lovely dining experience. I went to lunch at the suggestion of an ABC employee, last year. My sister, who has a catering company, and I enjoyed it immensely. We took my niece there this time and we will definitely return. The desserts were especially memorable.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA good dining experience, but...Not a great one. Several flaws: server disappeared for 15 min after ordering a bottle of wine. Comes back to show us the bottle and disappears again, comes back and hey presto the bottle is open. Do they not open bottles at the table any more? I'm not wine savvy enough to recognize if they switched wines...
Also, we both ordered the bass and they were out, so replaced the fish with snapper. I don't think that the flavour profiles are the same, despite what the server said.
We were there on a Friday night, so the noise level was bordering on intrusively loud. Still, I'd recommend you at least try ABC kitchen once.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThree Course Lunch is the way to goThree of us went for lunch and ordered different three course lunches and they were all fantastic! So much food, I could not finish my second course and had to take the dessert to go. Best beet salad ever and the tuna appetizer with the ginger sauce was so good I mopped up the sauce with my bread. A must for foodies!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurant organic foodLovely ambience in this restaurant and beautiful decor. The food was lovely, not too big but tasted great and healthy. Really recommend.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphere matches the great food!Its always a go-to place when you can find that combination of great atmosphere and great food!
ABC's design is unique and something to talk about as your dining. Its part of the whole experience and for me, I love bringing people here and introducing them to another one of Jean George's great food finds!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic lunch experienceBrought my mother here for a special lunch. Great experience! Greeted with complimentary wine, and were never rushed despite a long lunch. The service was gracious, the lunch menu offered terrific variety and the food exceeded our expectations. Not too noisy, even when crowded (appreciated quiet music). Only complaint: the small tables were a bit close together; we were seated in between two other 2-top tables and could hear everything said by everyone else, even though other tables farther away were open and remained open. But otherwise an outstanding meal - we plan to return on our next trip into the city.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFarm to tableFrom the simple but stylish wild flowers on the tables, the abundance of herbs by the kitchen , you could almost think you were eating right next to a farm. The food is delicious and original. Roasted carrots and advocado with a slight kick - a favorite.
Yes we will be back!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, ambience, serviceABC Kitchen is excellent, and unpretentious. I've never had a bad meal here.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!I was surprised by how accommodating they were of some of our special needs. It left such a positive impression on our whole table. Thanks again!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and beautiful placeI strongly recommend this restaurant. The food is very good and the place is beautiful5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMvery special ambiancewould love to go more often but impossible to get a normal reservation...5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA manhattan gemThis terrific restaurant has everything for a great night out. The ambiance is one of a kind and great for a romantic evening or dinner with friends and family. With a unique and beauiful decor, the helpful and friendly staff, and deliscious food, you'll want to book your return to this New York gem before your dinner is even finished.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely loved the crabAbsolutely loved the crab toast and veal meatballs.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMarvelously imaginative, innovativeMarvelously imaginative, innovative and creative, this restaurant is just outstanding. The hip interior provides the perfect mood light but is thoughtfully designed so that every table is lit properly to read the menu. And what a menu it is! When you go, don't make any decisions until you hear what marvelous super fresh vegetable or ingredient is being featured that evening. When we went, it was ramp. They made a ramp "pesto" with pumpkin seeds and som eother magical ingredients that they put on a marvelous toast and added crumbled triple creme goat cheese that was to die for! The suckling pig with smoked bacon marmelade is now permanently embedded into my memory.....Don't think about it. Just go!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWow...don't wait, come here now!Everything was excellent here at ABC Kitchen. My wife and I have been wanting to try this place and we are mad we waited so long. From the friendly and helpful Host/Hostess to the bartenders and the waitstaff the service was great. The food was even better! We wanted to try a few items so they split the entrees for us without even asking and it was little things like this that made us happy. The apps were all amazing, loved the shaved raw fluke, the kale salad, pork belly and salmon! We also shared an amzing rabbit pasta that was incredible. We will be coming back soon, not soon enough actually!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat relaxing atmosphereGreat relaxing atmosphere and very helpful wait staff4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMperfection on a plateHad 3-4 waiters tending to our every need. The food was creatively dreamt up and flavorful. Cost us $80/person after tax and tip but I frankly have no regrets. It was a phenomenal meal.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing farm-to-table restaurantAmazing farm-to-table restaurant with unique menu offering.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNew York experienceAs good as I imagined after watching a TV note, Iconoclasts, on Jean George. We had Maine lobster with Sancerre, absolutely perfect. Attention to detail in food and service up to the little plate in which the bill is presented. Will recomend it to my friends and come back every time I visit NYC.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food. Did not likeFabulous food. Did not like that we had waited a bit to be seated. However, as we were seated I noted a number of tables available and yet people were waiting at the front. I assume that is to keep the "buzz" going. Not one of my favorite gimicks that restaurants do. Other than that, ABC Kitchen is a top spot for me.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure to have a reservationGreat atmosphere in a fun location. The food was amazing, so fresh with interesting combinations. Will definitely be back.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSo Good!!! Staff was warmSo Good!!! Staff was warm and professional. Food was delicious- Kale Salad, Tuna Sashimi, Salmon, Veggie Burger, Sea Bass, Sundae. Never fails to deliver.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy heavenIf all the food I put in my mouth could just be half as good as what is served at ABC Kitchen...! It's amazing how eating at ABC Kitchen is like eating for the first time. The freshness and flavor is paramount here. Eggs benedict never tasted so good. And the maple bacon biscuits...wow. Even the organic ice tea is sublime. I can't wait to return.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best NYC Has to offer...This was our selection for the final dinner during our NYC weekend and it couldn't have been better selected. I can't wait to go back. Service was fantastic, the menu was diverse and everything we ate was delicious. We will return on our next NYC visit!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial treatmentMy latest experience at ABC Kitchen was off the charts. The mgmt and staff went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. I brought my parents to celebrate their 34 wedding anniversary and shared with them the news that I'm pregnant. They carefully explained every menu item, brought a new dish for us to try, and made an assortment of special desserts w 'Happy Anniversary' and 'Congratulations' written in fine chocolate. I've lived in NY for over 10 years and it can be difficult to find this level of service and kindness towards customers. We will never forget the special moments we shared at ABC Kitchen.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experienceThe food was outstanding, as always service truly impeccable. The atmosphere here is not fussy, not "fine dining" but chic. (Dress is anywhere from nice jeans to jackets...) Every time I'm there I see kids, so I guess I'd say bring your kid if they're well -behaved and used to dining in "grown-up" restaurants...4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a greatMy husband and I had a great experience at ABC Kitchen. The atmosphere is something you could only experience in NYC. The cocktails were quite creative and delicious. The food was very good as well. We liked having the option of splitting small plates or ordering full entrees. We opted for small plates since there were many items we wanted to try. The hand made cavatelli with the rabbit ragu was the stand out dish but we also really enjoyed the asparagus and bacon pizza. Service was adequate. We are glad we chose to try ABC Kitchen.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this restaurant. VeryLoved this restaurant. Very seasonal and fresh ingredients. Food was great and interesting without being overly foodie. Beware though, extremely hard to get a reservation but worth it!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place. Food itLove this place. Food it great! The food was so good I went back again after sitting at the bar the first time and not liking the service. The tender was too interested in serving the "Hip Couple" next to me. My money is still good and I am a fantastic tipper, but I am not hip. Have two more reservations in the future, but I am not sitting at the bar (and I am still not hip, but love good food!)4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth writing a review forReally excellent. I never write reviews, but this place had a great feel to it (great lighting and a lot of exposed wood) and the food (I had the Salmon, she had a couple appetizers) was remarkably better than most of the michelin 1 stars, IMO, that we have been eating out at lately.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal and service.Excellent meal and service. The dishes were a little bit pricey compared and not different enough from similar hugh end restaurants. I would try there again for a special dinner but I am not sure if I would do brunch again.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat decor, very nice atmosphere.Great decor, very nice atmosphere. Food was good but a bit overpriced.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful time withHad a wonderful time with my husband and infant daughter for a late lunch. The prix fixe meal was a great bargain and the added crab toast from the chef made a great experience for us. I had the squash and goat cheese toast for an appetizer, veggie burger for my meal and the chocolate/pb and popcorn dessert. Fantastic. My husband had the sashimi app, ravioli with egg and pork and the cookie plate for dessert. I would definitely return but next time, hopefully for dinner with the hubby.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe stunning, eclectic, andThe stunning, eclectic, and original decor of ABC Kitchen might be enough of a reason to go. But the outstanding, flavorful and distinctive food is really the reason to go. At our lunch, we thoroughly enjoyed each item we tasted. We especially enjoyed the mushroom and farro side dish, which the waiter brought to our table courtesy of the chef. The arctic char I ordered may have been the best preparation of a fish dish I ever had. The service was helpful until the restaurant got very crowded, and then it was harder to flag down the waiter to order coffee and get the check. I look forward to returning and trying some different items from the seasonal menu.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingFantastic restaurant! Amazing ambiance and food. Love this place.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!We saw the restaurant featured on TV approximately 2 years ago and it was a goal to try it out the next time we visited NYC. We finally went this week for Sunday brunch and it was wonderful. I can't say enough about the entire experience. We're going back for dinner next time!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch at ABC Kitchen...Great brunch at ABC Kitchen... Kale salad, Carrot & Avocado salad, Arctic Char, and Sea Bass were all very good.

Some members of our large party were really late, but the staff rolled with it wonderfully.
Minor notes: The dining room is large and airy, which means noisy. Some of the wait staff may still be "in training" because my appetizer plate was cleared even though our shared appetizers were still on the table.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMgood overall but same experiencegood overall but same experience can be had in other restaurants in the city without the hype and the wait to get a reservation4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and fabulousDelicious food and fabulous ambiance.
