Diner Reviews
  • "Recommended by a friend and did not disappoint! Beautiful, elegant, and interesting table settings. The dining room was attractive, spacious and not overly crowded. The food was amazing! We shared crab toast and ramp toast and each person raved about their entrees. Delicious drinks! Loved sharing the cookie tray for dessert. We will visit every time we come to New York until we have tried everything!"

  • "The food was excellent here. The desserts were divine. I would recommend the sundae and the lemon meringue tart. The service was good and the waiter always ensured my water glass was filled. We even had a star sighting while eating here. Definitely a place to go if you're visiting new york. "

  • "What is there not to love about ABC Kitchen? The staff is very nice, professional and offers suggestions about dishes if asked. I tried the kabocha squash toast, raviolo and kale salad. Each dish was pleasing to the eye and the palate. The next time I'm in NYC and my schedule permits, I will stop by ABC Kitchen. "

  • "Really great value for money lunch set menu. All food was fantastic, the beer selection spot on and the service as smooth as it gets. We were slightly early for our booking, but they still found a table and we were seated quickly."

  • "Was recommended this restaurant by a colleague and could not rate it highly enough. Coming from London, I didn't think I could be surprised by a restaurant anymore but this was full of them. The bar, cocktails, food and service were all to a very high standard and the atmosphere at lunchtime was great. The Turkey Sandwich might be the cheapest thing on the menu but it was by far the best thing I saw coming out of the kitchen. "

  • "We recently spent four days in NYC and ate at many well known restaurants. We ate lunch at ABC Kitchen on our last day and it was the most amazing food we'd had all trip. We ordered some wonderful cocktails and the crab toast to start. We then dined on the prix fixe menu and from start to finish was delicious. This was the perfect way to end our trip and can not wait to visit again on our next trip! "

  • "I loved everything about ABC Kitchen! Favorite dish was roasted beets with housemade yogurt (might sound odd but it is so delicious...I could eat that every day!). Yes, pricey, but that was expected. We enjoyed getting a few small plates to share and then the pizza with mushrooms and poached egg. I found the pizza very salty, but I am sensitive about salt. I would definitely come back. Service was excellent and it has a great vibe. The decor is stunning."

  • "Took my wife on our honeymoon to this place and asked restaurant in advance to have roses and card with message on table for my wife. They obtained the flowers for me at a fair price and the card was amazing. My wife loved it, the atmosphere was divine and romantic. The service was absolutely fantastic. The food was all fresh, the drink list exciting and the service blew my mind. We both left saying this is the best restaurant we have ever been to and highly recommend it to everyone. On our return flight home to Miami our only regret is there is not an ABC Kitchen in Miami. Thanks."

  • "I've been to ABC Kitchen for brunch, lunch and dinner several times, and every single time, food was consistently delicious and service was top notch. This restaurant must run a tight ship. Coupled with the beautiful ambiance, no wonder reservations at ABC Kitchen are still hard to come by after being open for several years. I highly recommend ABC Kitchen for any occasion. Stop by even without a reservation--there is a spacious bar area out in the front with high top tables which are first-come, first-served. You won't regret it."

  • "All involved in service were excellent and friendly. The appetizers were phenomenal as were the desserts. Unfortunately my chicken was a little tougher than expected. I will be back to try another entree. I highly recommend the pizzas to share as well as the beet and yogurt dish. The doughnut dessert is great too."

  • "I'm very picky about my dining experiences: the food and service must be top notch to be memorable. This restaurant delivered all that. Our waitress, Joanne, was friendly and professional, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent from appetizers to desert. My husband and I tried to find something to criticize and simply couldn't. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "one of the best restaurants i've been to in NYC! was recommended multiple times by few of my friends and so glad we finally made it there, was definitely worth the long booking wait and late night reservation. Food was phenomenal and so was the decor, cannot wait to go back! Dreaming about those scallops and roasted cauliflower...."

  • "1 word = AMAZING. Went here with a group of 8. Tyler (our A+ server) and his crew accommodated us with perfection. Ordered largely based on OT/Yelp reviews. Wife & I: Housemade ricotta w/grilled bread, roasted pear salad, pretzel dusted calamari, Akaushi cheeseburger, crispy pork confit, roasted brussel sprouts, salted caramel ice cream sundae, doughnuts. Had a bite of the burger, its not like your fiveguys, its more sophisticated, well executed. Pork confit...well put it this way, 2 days later and i'm still thinking about it! Had two different cocktails, both great. Others had: the lobster, mushroom pizza, sea bass, salmon, told they are all A+. Pleasant surprise when Jean Georges stopped by to say hi, very friendly, autographed my menu!"

  • "ABC Kitchen does have good food but the service is terrible at least where I sat. Waiter disappeared more than once, we were served appetizers from the couple to our left messy...Wine list is unique and we made a great choice! I would go to try it once. I may go again but wasn't wowed!!!"

  • "We liked the ambiance but felt the lighting was too low. I had difficulty reading the menu under the light bulb. The tuna appetizer was great and the pear and apple salad delicious but the Tasmanian trout overpriced and the ravioli was hard around the edges and were small. We won't go back."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "The food was not all that impressive. It was good, yes, but not over the top that would make me want to go back again just to eat. Outstanding drinks, and the service was excellent."

  • "I had been looking forward to ABC Kitchen for months. Having dined at Jean Georges about 10 years ago I was excited to once again experiencing the sublime mix of flavors I had before. The bread and olive oil were wonderful start; a silky and earthy olive oil with well developed flavors. The olives were nice but also had a little too much heat. The same is goes for the sun chokes--the caramelization was just short of burned and the hazelnuts were wonderful but again, a little too much heat which overpowered the delicate flavor of the sunchoke. The cavatelli and sausage was filling but the broccoli rabe puree lacked the depth of flavor I was expecting. Brussel sprouts were overly caramelized. The chocolate cake was superb."

  • "Love this place.....you really need to book ahead of time as its not the easiest place to get a table....fun place for lunch and then shopping in the store or surrounding area afterwards.. We ordered three items and shared with a glass of Sancerre.....perfect amount of food and our server Mary Alice was fabulous. Pleasant,cheerful and attentive without being intrusive."

  • "We really liked the food - the farm to table quality cooking was what we were looking forward to and they delivered. But I was really surprised by the service. Our waiter seemed to be paying attention to other tables even while serving us. And then once he had left our table getting his attention again was impossible. The only saving grace for their service was that the girl with the water pitcher re-filled our glasses after only a couple sips."
