Diner Reviews
  • "Absolutely delicious and the best service. Cookshop is our go to for guests. Ingredients are KING, with the best from the farmers market shining on the plate. I almost went back again today!"

  • "I was spending time with someone that I don't often see, so the opportunity to walk the High Line and dinner at the restaurant seemed like the perfect idea. And, as always, Cookshop did not disappoint! it was a beautiful early evening, and we were seated at a lovely corner table, looking out at the serene setting. The service was impeccable. Our waitperson was knowledgeable about the food and wine, and never intrusive, aware that there was a lot of 'catching up' going on. She was there when we needed her, and we never felt rushed. The food was excellent. Beautifully prepared fish, perfectly roasted chicken, good drinks, and a shared sundae for dessert....what more could you ask for? I will continue to return, again and again."

  • "And the place where I've had the best steak in the city 4 years ago, and I've been back a couple of times more -after all I happen to live around the corner, it's not the same. Not this time. Although the American Wagyu steak was cooked to my liking the cheddar jalapeno potato hash was not what I expected, instead I was served a pile of bland potatoes glued by cheddar like a lump. My Partner had a bland piece of cod that was swimming in oil. It was unpleasant. Desserts were very mediocre specially the peaches and sponge cake, there were hardly any peaches."

  • "We were told about this place primarily for the specialty margaritas......which by the way were terrific. The meal was excellent...we all tried something different. The kettle corn dessert is a MUST...even if your stuffed...DO IT you will not regret it !!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "A good, well-rounded menu for lunch. Try the wagyu steak sandwich or the burger. The food is worth the trek to 10th Ave. Sat outside on a nice summer day. Felt like an oasis amid the din of traffic and construction. Near the High Line."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I've been to Cookshop many times. Now that there's construction gone wild because of the highline, it's lost some of the ambiance- noisy drilling after 7PM was a drag! I can only sit outside, because the inside is too noisy. I'll continue to go because the food is fabulous"

  • "Cookshop is usually great. On my last visit I found the food just didn't come together for me and the levels of noise in the room were unusually trying. The restaurant and bar were both packed, so they are doing something right. I think it was just a night when, for me, they were not as stellar as usual. The food was kind of bland/overly deconstructed and items listed as an integral part of the dish on the menu turned out to be garnishes or just a completely different iteration of what you were expecting. Top-notch ingredients, friendly/gracious service, beautiful coffee as always. I will still go back and try again because I like it there and the food and service have always been good."

  • "The atmosphere, food quality and level of service was excellent. I ordered vegetables with a wonderful aoli sauce as an app which had wonderful taste. The server indicated everything was locally sourced and that the chef changed the menu daily. The swordfish kabobs were outstanding and perfectly prepared as was the side dish of grilled corn. The atmosphere was both cozy and energetic. The staff is top notch and enhanced the experience. I will visit this restaurant again!"

  • "Food is good and fresh, if just a little bland. Service is fantastic!"

  • "Delicious, seasonal menu. Great location and warm hospitality. A place to return to again and again."

  • "Locavore themed restaurant by the high line. Well made with fresh, best quality ingredients: not your supermarket chicken, lovely dishes to share. Bring a group"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Philosphy here is to offer fewer choices but prepare what the do well. They succeed. We shared the pureed eggplant. A little more on the plate would have been nice. My date had the vegetarian offering. You must like garlic (a lot) to enjoy this choice. I had waygu steak which was done to medium petfection. The side of potatoes with cheese and pickled onions was an excellent compliment to the beef. Main meal portions are filling so we skipped dessert."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I've been to Cookshop 4-5 times. It is appropriate for a business meal (lunch, dinner and even a fabulous breakfast), or just a place to meet friends. The food is exceptional. I had the Maine lobster salad, which was very tasty, and some other dishes of which I don't remember the names (one was bocadillo de ???? - it was a delicious way to prepare chicken gibblets -very unique)."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Not only was the food great, and décor lovely and airy, but also the service was notably good. On this, a member of our party left a smartphone behind after we left the restaurant, and within minutes the host left a message for us and kept the phone safe and secure until we figured out what happened and returned for it. Great restaurant, great people!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The concept is that racheter entrée is very small and that you have to order 3 per person to not leave hungry. That´s fine but when something is good, you wish you had more!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We really enjoyed out brunch at Cookshop. We started with the brulee grapefruit, which (despite the delish cornmeal pancakes with mascarpone, warm rhubarb, and maple syrup) was for me the highlight of the meal: ruby red grapefruit slices with a crisp broiled sugar coating, sitting on a bed of creme fraiche and garnished with mint leaves. Simple, unexpected, and really tasty! Finally, there was no push to get us out of there when we were done. My friend and I lingered over her cocktail to chat, and there was no hovering waitstaff. Recommended!"

  • "My date ordered salmon and was still hungry after dinner due to the small portion size. Also, there were limited options for sides. Our waitress was excellent and the ambience was nice. Overall, the experience was ok."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Cookshop is a simple but large and attractive room on 10th Avenue. We were warmly greeted and immediately seated. Service was overall friendly and professional and they went to some lengths to accommodate our vegan companion. We started with a hummus plate, market salad and squid, all of which were fine. We had the mixed grill (good) trout (very good) and summer vegetable plate (excellent). Wine list is limited but original. At $90 pp, wine tip and tax included, it was a fair deal. We would definitely return."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Cookshop is one of those restaurants where everyone working there cares - the chefs, the waitstaff, the hosts - it's all good. I bring visitors here all the time because I know the meal and experience will be top notch in every way."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The wait staff catered to my white colleague who was my guest and ignored me. I have been have been a patron of the restaurant since it opened! What is going on..."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "This is the second time I have ordered a burger at this restaurant and thought it was tasteless and greasy. The salad that came with it had an overly salted dressing. I have eaten dinner there a couple of times and remember liking my meal but finding the restaurant overly loud. IMHO the best thing they make is their egg dishes at brunch. I don't like the overly elaborate offerings on the lunch menu and especially don't care for their burgers. I prefer sitting at the bar or outdoors. I am not going to rush back even though I live three blocks from Cookshop."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Cook Shop turned out to be the perfect place to bring my friend's visiting mom. We arrived prior to our reservation and was told we would be accommodated early (after a nice walk.) The hostesses were amazingly cheerful, and the server was equally friendly, attentive, and helpful while ordering. We had a leisurely dinner outside on a balmy night. I can see how it would be great for brunch, too. Good drinks and dessert to top it off."

  • "Food was great... But overpriced even for NYC...service was horrible. At the end of our meal our waiter commented... Sorry but I have no control over the food or the bar once I put in the order... However, he greeted us 10 min after we were seated and poured our water. He then came to the table that was seated 15 minutes after us and took their order. Their food was delivered 10 minutes before ours! They had a complaint and the manager came over and said I'm sorry....and she left.... That's it. Just I'm sorry! I'm surprised they do as well as they do..."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "I am a regular at this place but it seems to be going downhill. The menu gets more creative every time and doesn't meet expectations. When I try new menu items, I am always disappointed. But stick to old favorites like the huevos rancheros and you are good."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Never fails to impress. After eating here for years, the menu continues to be fresh and the food excellent."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We make a point of lunching at Cookshop during our Chelsea gallery visits. It is perfect food to keep up the hectic pace of art viewing. The food is fresh, healthy and carefully realized."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Cookshop used to be a terrific Chelsea neighborhood hangout for us. No longer. The food has become generic, tasteless, sloppy even. The service is disingenuous. The crowd pretentious. And the noise level prohibitive. Such a shame. Now just the usual Chelsea dross. Big noise about nothing. Give this place a BIG MISS!"

  • "For lunch; great food, very slow delivery of the food today"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Enjoyed our lunch here. The mezze platter would benefit from some more protein but was otherwise v good. Tasty fish tacos. Excellent coffee and honey ice cream for dessert."

  • "For a quick and fancy-free lunch, this was perfect. Friendly staff."

  • "I've been coming to cookshop since it opened as I think it's as good today as ever. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And always a very friendly staff."

  • "I love love love this restaurant! It can get SUPER CROWDED AND VERY LOUD. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND COOKSHOP! One of my favorite restaurants in the city. I have never been disappointed with a meal there and I have eaten there many many times. It's a home run consistently! Upon my last visit there they were so busy they were not able to seat us at our reservation time but made up for it with a free appetizer. They are very thoughtful in the handling of their patrons and work diligently to make sure you enjoy every aspect of your meal."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The food was wonderful. My friends and I ordered a mojito, it was one of the worst I have had in a long time. Too sweet, not cold enough. our server dismissed us immediately and for the rest of the night was snickering about us to the other waiters. Cocktails came after the appetizers. Entrees took a very long time."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Absolutely too noisy. It is possible to talk if there are two in the party, otherwise practice pantomime."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Cookshop in my opinion is always consistent, which is hard to do in the restaurant business. The wine list kept by the sommelier, Richard, always has interesting selections I do not find at other places. I had a good selection of fresh oysters recently. For travelers it is a great place to eat before you catch a train at Penn Station."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Nice large and bright interior, and lively enough that you feel like you're in a popular spot, but not too overcrowded that you are in a rush to leave. The food is delicious, we had the Pico de Gallo app which was super fresh. I had the broccoli raube and provolone scramble on a buttermilk biscuit - YUM! Also, the drinks here are a must. Bloody Mary's I hear are great (not my thing(, I had the strawberry mojito whish was muddled with a bunch of fresh strawberries."

  • "Had high hoped after recommendations from friends so I brought guests from New Orleans there for dinner...food was OK but not special...ambience was no different than hundreds of other places...nothing special...wish I had taken them to some where else!"
