  • Celebration Dinner

    My girlfriend took me here to celebrate my new job. One of the most important things when we go out to eat is the service. This place has that along with the amazing food. The waiter was very attentive to our needs. He was proactive with filling our drinks but not over attentive. The food was very unique and you can tell it was prepared with love from the kitchen.

    I loved the Cookshop. Excellent service, delicious, fresh and tasty food, a wonderful ambiance inside and outside. I was lucky enough to have eaten on the patio where it was more quiet and I got to enjoy the street view. Great location since it is right next to the Highline. I would definitely recommend this spot for brunch!

    The first time I went to Cookshop I had a wonderful dining experience. Our server was a delight, engaging, knowledgable, and cheeky! I was buzzing after I left the restaurant from the impeccably prepared food (fresh and interesting flavors) along with service. The SECOND time I went with a larger group, the food remained delicious, but the service truly disappointing in every aspect. Our server took 30 mins to take our order, and had an attitude. Cookshop is a popular restaurant, and the food is truly very good and inventive, but I was surprised by the discepancy between my dining experiences. ALSO, the drinks took an eternity to come to the table, and busers had no etiquette.

    Cookshop figured out how to serve excellent food, indoors or out, and keep the standards high. The food was delicious, nots of great choices. The seating was contemporary, but they need more comfortable chairs. The servers were friendly, but less experienced. Overall, above average and worth a return visit.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Myself and a friend came here this past weekend from a rec. from my sister and her boyfriend. Did not disappoint. There's no reason not to give it 5 stars because it's exactly what we were looking for: the portions were not ridiculous, everything was well thought out (i.e the yogurt sauce contrast on the spicy lamb meatball appetizer), and it was all a great value. We shared the spicy lamb meatballs, the housemade pickle plate (should be called housemade PICKLED plate because it's not different pickles...just a few pickles and pickled veggies), heirloom tomato side, and the mixed grille. Very doable to share 2 apps, and entree, and a side if it's just 2 people.

    This place is always packed so I made a reservation through open table for a birthday dinner with a friend. The general vibe here is warm and inviting. It's a little loud but it's conversation noise and I don't mind that. The true stand out portion of my experience here was our waiter. He was very attentive without having that hovering quality. Even though neither I nor my friend mentioned it was her birthday he brought over a cupcake with a candle and champagne. Very sweet! I'll definitely be returning to Cookshop.

    Went here for a client dinner and had a very enjoyable experience. The waiter was very helpful with accommodating appetizers with the amount of people and making suggestions. The food was delicious and very nicely prepared. The restaurant its self was chic modern. Not overly fancy but upscale at the same time.

    Ok, so I've read lots about this place but finally got around to enjoying it, thanks to a NYFW show. It was held right next door and I needed a spot to meet a friend. Not only did we have a great time pre-show, but we connected with some other fashion industry folks and have now made this our regular brunch spot. It's very convenient for us Bridge & Tunnel folks (Long Island and New Jersey); and serves great food. The last time I was there, I ordered the Chicken Liver Mousse, it was delicious but I realized it was too much to consume, as I had a burger coming. Even though I had it packed to take home, our waitress came over to express concern that perhaps there might be a problem. Thanks for the great service!

    I just had brunch on Sunday, August 10th and the food was divine. We each ordered something different from the menu, so that we can taste each others food, and everything from the chicken salad, scrambled eggs with mushroom, walnut french toast and burger was delicious!! The food tasted fresh and was well prepared. We made a reservation and was seated about 15 minutes after the time. The hostess was very kind and took care of all of our luggage. The waiter was attentive and the ambiance was a great for a Sunday brunch. I will definitely go back again and have already recommended it to others.

    We had dinner with another couple here on a Saturday night. The hostess was very friendly and we were offered a table inside or outside. We sat outside and it was terrific. The service was wonderful and attentive and the outside seating area had enough privacy so that you didn't feel like you were eating on the sidewalk. The noise level was not an issue which is something I don't think can be said for the inside seating. Just walking to the ladies room I could tell it would be hard to have a conversation. Other than that I really enjoyed Cookshop and would go back.

    I am finding myself visiting Cookshop less frequently these days and I place stamp on it today. I am sensing the staff are not satisfied employees although professional the vibe is not the same anymore. I only go to brunch and not dinner any longer basically due to the overall dining experience.

    Incredibly accommodating! We changed our reservation twice on the day of dining and we were accommodated with a smile. See, in NYC if you behave civily, you will be treated as such. Food was outstanding with the ambiance a perfect balance of privacy and action. The appetizers were a touch light on portion but otherwise delicious. The place was great!

    Having been to Cookshop a couple of times before, I suggested it to my teenage niece, who came from New Jersey to spend the day. She loved it, and so did I -decor, vibe, service and especially the food. Zucchini chips started things off just right, and things only got better from there. Service was excellent, noise level allowed us to use "indoor voices," and lunch crowd was interesting, with other "intergenerational" groups and pairs. I couldn't have been happier with my choice. I don't live in the neighborhood, but I'll certainly be back. Cookshop + High Line are a winning combination.

    I love cookshop and go there frequently. On this night, out waiter was excellent. I have had many efficient and charming waiters there. Bartenders-- not so. They are the type that generally refuse to even glance up to acknowledge you. One begins wondering if you will even get a "hello, i'll be right with you." Food is always reliable, and often excellent. We had several appetizers -- all excellent. Everyone loved with their entree, except for the two of us that ordered the pork chop. A great cut of meat, well cooked, but the peach compote described on the menu came as an overly smoky, goopy, slimy sauce that overpowered the dish-- and not in a good way. Otherwise-- Cookshop is always recommended if you can handle the high noise level.

    I keep going back because I always have a good experience. Given its situation adjacent to the HighLine this is very busy spot. Unlike most restaurants that are very popular, and have been around a while, it just gets better and better. The food was excellent, the service just the right (informal but attentive and never fussy), and the ambience energetic but not over the top. Needless to say I will keep going back.

    The food is always interesting. The people are always pretty. The service is variable and can range from fine to train wreck. Our waiter was clueless about small plate ordering and failed to determine how we wanted small plates delivered; as a result we had great flourishes arriving for all except one guest who ordered an entree - which he ate while we paid the bill. No amount of direction seemed to break through to Sparkles the Waiter who was so amped up on charm and flirting that he couldn't focus on the business at hand.

    My husband and I thought that both of our appetizers (stuffed squash blossoms and salmon crudo) were excellent. However we found the main course (we both had the trout) to be fresh and well presented, but not very tasty as well as lacking in vegetables, though there was fruit with it. The wine recommendation was spot on. We enjoy the atmosphere and the staff are always delightful. Food is consistently good but not great.
