A word from Cask Bar & Kitchen
CASK 100yr old reclaimed wood floor and an antique back bar sets the tone. Cask Bar & Kitchen harks back to a by-gone era. One of craftsmanship and authenticity. Of dimly lit encounters, great conversation & carefully created cocktails. We offer hand drawn cask conditioned beers, a wide variety of craft beers and an exceptional selection of wines. Well informed waist coated Barkeeps will guide the most discerning of taste buds. The Kitchen continues the simple rustic theme with its selection of cheeses, charcuterie and wide range of small plate fare. The Cellar Bar located downstairs can be reserved for private events and incorporates a full draft system. With the same attention to décor and detail as upstairs it is the perfect setting for any event. “Classic Vintage Bar” as described by one customer and frankly we couldn’t agree more. We hope you enjoy!Continued

- Birthday at Cask Bar+KitchenWinenwhineDined on 10/24/2014I recently celebrated my birthday at Cask Bar+Kitchen with some girlfriends. The staff was great, dinner was excellent, and a good time was had by all. The cocktails during Happy Hour were incredible, however the bar area was extremely tight. I would definitely come back here again, but if I was meeting a larger group, I would try to reserve the whole downstairs bar.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great find!Happy2dineoutDined on 10/16/2014Loved this spot for food and warm, welcoming, fun wait staff.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Cheap and GOOD foodUWS2VIPDined on 10/11/2014Although it was brunch, we weren't disappointed with the food. It was done well, and was actually affordable (e.g., $12 for chicken with waffles). Service was not bad too, though they did clear our plates away a bit too often and quickly, even though we were clearly still eating.Special Features:
- Great foodOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/25/2014We had the truffle mac and cheese to share. Very good. The blood orange jalapeno margarita was good. Grapefruit mojito was good as well. Their happy hour lasted a while 4 to 7pm. The steak was good, burger was good, flatbread was good.Special Features:
- Delightful!auntkateDined on 9/8/2014Relaxed atmosphere, wonderful service, and good food. Perfect for my group!Special Features:
- Perfect Birthday Pick!HashtagAshDined on 9/6/2014Adorable, intimate, place with incredible food and cocktails! I received donuts for dessert with a candle in it for my birthday. It was a great experience!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday PartyMayaDined on 9/6/2014Had a birthday dinner at Cask on Saturday night. They called earlier in the day to confirm the reservation, that was very nice. I had more people join the party than expected, even slightly more that the table could hold, but the staff were very accommodating, helpful, friendly and altogether great. My guests all ordered different things and everything got great comments. Love the ambiance of the place, great beer and cocktail selection and delicious food. Would recommend both for dinner for two and larger groups.Special Features:
- get togetherfuntimesDined on 8/21/2014I met a friend I had not seen in 9 years, she was in from Ireland. WE loved the food and wine (thankfully it was happy hour so we did not pay an arm and a leg) It was a great place to catch up and we did a few small plates and loved it!!!!Special Features:
- Good food/ poor serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 7/30/2014This was my first time dinning at Cask, it's a smaller cozy restaurant, a bit noisy. We ordered a few drinks during happy hour and our server suggested ordering a pitcher of the sangria (which was filled with ice and only served 1/2drinks) , when we got our bill the pitcher which there server suggested was DOUBLE the price of 6 drinks (we had only ordered 4 drinks initially). VERY disappointed, I brought this to the attention of the server who was clearly inexperienced and he looked at me cluelessly. I had to ask for the manager, who was very understanding and rectified the bill immediately. Overall the experience wasn't so bad, just one poor server.Special Features:

- Lovely, wood decor and good foodBikeNEatDined on 7/27/2014As a server, I wasn't too impressed by the server's greeting (i.e. do you know what you want?). However, the kale and raddicchio salad I ordered was delicious, and the space was large enough for five people. One of my friends did say she wasn't thrilled about her frittata. She said it reminded her of scrambled eggs. They do have a raspberry Bellini which is sublime--just wish it wasn't in a massive coupe glass...a little awkward to hold.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DeliciousrestaurantfanDined on 7/20/2014Delicious restaurant with food for everyone no matter how picky. It was also really comfortable and nice, I'll be back.Special Features:
- Fantastic FindeatgoodfoodDined on 6/13/2014A friend recommended this restaurant and I couldn't have been more pleased. Went with a small group for dinner on an early Friday evening. The place has a great ambience and grew livelier as the night wore on. Cocktails were yummy and the beer list extensive. We ordered a smattering of appetizer dishes and entrees to share and everything was delectable. My favorites were the caramelized brussel sprouts and truffle mac n' cheese. The desserts were also to die for, especially the dougnuts and bread pudding. I will definitely return!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great little gastropubScottDined on 5/17/2014I was incredibly impressed with the beer list and how good the cocktails looked. The food was good, but it wasn't amazing. A lot of things were too salty or too plain, but overall for a place in NYC, this was a great pairing of food/beer.Special Features:

- Birthday dinnerLexilu4Dined on 1/31/2014I heard of this restaurant and checked it out on yelp and saw it was good for groups as we were celebrating my birthday. Made a reservation and we ended up being a little late for our time slot (some unseen mishaps). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Server even gave us some suggestions for other bars we could try out for a more dance vibe. Food and drinks were delicious! Definitely will be coming back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good selections of wines!PuffMommyVIPDined on 1/24/2014We, a group of 4 co-workers, hanged out on Friday night and the ambience and service were great! Also, they have a nice selection of wines at a reasonable price range. However, no food dish was impressive... I think I may go back for drinks and talks only, but I still liked it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Cask Bar & KitchenNimisDined on 1/18/2014Loved the ambience! Really good coctails and long beer list. Mac n cheese was really tasty. Burgers were good too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Our ExperienceLizzyVDined on 12/13/2013I brought my family to the city for a Christmas vacation, this past weekend, and decided to make reservations at Cask. Our reservation was at 7:30, but because of traffic from New Jersey into the city and we were almost an hour late for our reservation. We kept in contact with the hostess and she was more than helpful by keeping the table for us, even though we were so late! We loved everything we ate and I was more than happy that I chose this restaurant to be the first place in New York City that my little sister ever dined in!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great atmosphere and friendlyOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 12/11/2013Great atmosphere and friendly service! We had lots of appetizers and they were quite good!Special Features:
- Great birthday dinnerLovetoeatDined on 11/15/2013Came here for a birthday dinner (made a reservation first) with 6 people. Ordered pretty much all the appetizers to share and everything was great. The drinks were great as well, everyone loved it and we ended up staying at the very comfortable table for probably about three hours, and when more people dropped by as the night when on to sit for drinks, the waiter didn't give us any problems and pulled up chairs to accommodate them. Highly recommend this restaurant and we all will be going back to try more of the food.Special Features:
- yes and noAMA37VIPDined on 10/27/2013two of our meals were fantastic (the breakfast pizza) and two were less than good (hangover sandwich). The drinks were fantastic however so I would def go for drinks! Also, the service was ok but when one of us had to send back their hangover sandwich because the eggs were obviously overcooked the waiter wasn't thrilled... which was a turnoff...Special Features:
- Great reunion dinner spotFormerNYCerVIPDined on 10/21/2013Left NYC a year ago after a 5-year stint and was back in town for work. Wanted a place that'd be easy for friends to get to coming from all over city, plus good food and drink (of course). Cask has delicious food with many options to meet everyone's dietary preferences. Great ambiance - energetic but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other. We were seated right away even though a few in the group hadn't arrived yet (really appreciated that) and felt like they really let us sit and enjoy our meal and the company. I used to frequent Cask when I lived in Murray Hill and will definitely continue to return as a visitor.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PityElaineDined on 10/13/2013We were a group of 9 here for a bday dinner. The service was below average. The famed truffles Mac and cheese did not have any truffle oil or truffle spray in it. I'm sure if it did, at least 1 our of the 9 of us would be able to taste it. However, the waitress argued that there is definitely a truffle element in the dish and she kept asking what we want to do about it. "It's supposed to taste subtle, do you want the chef to add more truffle spray?" She said. We were so speechless at their inability to accept the Chef's mindless mistake. The other mishap was that they forgot to put a candle on the dessert for the birthday boy. I asked them specifically beforehand, but who am I kidding. Don't expect great service here. Food was good enough.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Enjoyable DinnerSandyDined on 10/5/2013We were visiting our daughter in NYC and had a very enjoyable dinner. Food was good, place was interesting, comfortable, and not too noisy so we could have a nice conversation. We would definitely go there again!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing BurgerLoveSlidersDined on 8/19/2013The lamb burger with herbed goat cheese and that yogurt sauce was the best burger I've ever eaten. I would return in a heartbeat.Special Features:
- Good food and ambience!LuvTravelAndFoodDined on 7/12/2013Went here with 3 other girlfriends for a girl's night out....and what a find! We had a bunch of tapas and drinks and awesome service!

Highly recommend for a night out with your significant other or a small group of friends!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
