    We first discovered on a trip to the HighLine in the summer and have been back 3 times since. We love the fresh, interesting food, the friendly service and the fact that the menu changes regularly. When we have friends in from out of town, we often end a trip to the Highline with a dinner at Cookshop and we've never been disappointed. Keep up the good work!

    Enjoyed our meal at Cookshop with one disappointment. Gnocchi was great, salads were good, and chicken was exceptional. The Lamb mixed grill was a letdown. The leg of lamb portion of this dish was rather gray/overcooked (heatlamp?) and somewhat devoid of flavor.

    Our most recent dinner was probably my fourth or fifth visit to Cookshop. The food is always fresh, seasonal and interesting. Even on a packed Saturday evening, the noise level is conducive to conversation with our tablemates. The service was particularly good on this last visit as our server was extremely knowledgable and accommodating, not batting an eye to my dietary requirements. The only reason the food got 4 out of 5 stars is that my husband could not see his pork entree well enough in the dim light to be able to trim the fat from the meat, so he was not fully satisfied. Overall, another fantastic experience at Cookshop.

    The farm to table food was delicious and I would come here more often but one cannot hear one's table companion at all. My recommendation is that something be done to reduce the noise level, it distracts from the experience. Service is friendly and adequate, atmosphere borders on hip.

    I'm a vegetarian and my husband is a big meat eater. We both really enjoyed the food and the options were great for both of us. The kale salad was divine. My husband loved his steak and it was cooked perfectly. The waiter we had was amazing, he was super attentive and very sweet. He gave excellent recommendations too. Next time we're in NYC we'll be back!

    First time eating at the Cookshop. We had a late lunch so the restaurant was not too crowded. The selection of food for lunch was very good and varied. I ordered the Pork belly BLT which was incredibly delicious and just the right portion. The service was excellent. Our server, Chris was very attentive and friendly. We never felt rushed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/28/2014
    Went here for brunch based on Yelp and Open Table reviews. I got the lemon ricotta pancakes and my husband got the egg sandwich. Pancakes were good, nothing amazing, but good. The egg sandwich was better, with homemade sausage and a side of spicy potatoes. Overall good experience, went Sunday morning before it was too busy, but by the time we left it was very busy. My only complaint is that when I asked for a latte, the waitress brought me a regular coffee with a side of milk. If they didn't offer coffee drinks, she should have told me they only had regular coffee. I guess I don't consider that a latte. Maybe I'm wrong? I don't know a ton about coffee.

    We had a wonderful kale and roasted squash salad and a lamb meatloaf with nice mediterranean flavors which we liked very much. My entree wasn't memorable (in fact I can't even remember what I had.) The tables are too close together (the people at the table next to us joined in our conversation) and the decible level is deafening.

    Cookshop is one of my favorite restaurants that appeals to anyone's cuisine preference. With a friend visiting us, the food was wonderful and everyone loved everything. But, I have to say one thing that brings it over the top is the service and the genuine friendly service from the staff from the front door to the table. The wait staff is truly exceptional - helpful, knowledgeable, efficient and not stuffy at all. It is so nice to have that comfort. I recommend Cookshop to anyone - tourist or local. They offer solid and flavorful food, great drinks and outstanding service at affordable prices.

    Cookshop is a restaurant when all else fails we always go back to when visiting friends in NY. However, it commits the common sin of auctioning off food and taking away plates before people are done eating. The caliber of food and attentiveness to detail should be cascaded wait staff so each plate is set in front of the right diner.
