    If you are baked this is the place for you....Start with the delicious bread and butter, proceed to the corn on the cob with jalepeno, move onto the pizza....and end with a desert...there all more health and diet conscious options on the menu, but this was my ticket to healing the other evening. my server encouraged me and I was so grateful....thank you Cookshop for making a comeback after an "off" period....you are more delicious than ever!!

    Cookshop is one of my favorites in the city - terrific, versatile and tasty menu, impeccable service, lovely, great vibe. Always recommend it to locals and out of towners alike. I mentioned it was my bf's birthday in our reservation notes and they brought a cupcake with a candle after our meal - always a class act.

    The vibe was great at this well known Chelsea eatery. It's a casual fun atmosphere with great service, excellently prepared fresh food and a decently priced wine list. The three of us in the party really enjoyed the Waygu beef dish, a whole fish dish, and a vegetarian entree. The desserts were very inventive and delicious. Definitely worth it!

    We recently celebrated our anniversary dinner here. I had been years ago and Cookshop still has it and then some! I spend a lot of time in the Chelsea area and this really is a neighborhood gem. The seasonal menu was exceptional and the cocktails were spot on. Definitely ask for recommendations as the staff is very well versed in the menu.

    We went for our anniversary. It is more lively than romantic, which was fine with us. The food was creative and terrific and the wines were excellent. Perhaps best of all the waitstaff and the sommelier were fantastic - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I'm a vegan, which is a pain for any restaurant, but they could not have been more accommodating and the food was plentiful and tasty (not just the veg plate some places will give you). And the sommelier, having discussed with us what we like, actually encouraged us to get the less expensive wine of the two we were considering, and the wine was perfect. Not much negative to say, although if you are looking for a quiet place it would not fit the bill.

    Great spot for a special birthday dinner! It was just what we were looking for in terms of a solidly nicer good-food restaurant, without being over-the-top upscale. We had been wanting to try Cookshop for awhile, especially after enjoying Hundred Acres so much a few months back, and it was worth the wait! We extra-loved the fun cocktail menu, the pesto pasta dish, and the chocolate peanut butter dessert, AND the nectarine dessert (we couldn't narrow it down to just one) - and the service was top-notch! Very friendly and warm vibe from everyone we encountered. Super nice ambience and decor, with the perfect sort of low (but not too low) lighting. Thanks for an awesome night, Cookshop!

    I was looking forward to coming to Cookshop, as I just moved to the neighborhood and had read/heard great things about it. We were able to sit outside, which was great because NYFW was in full swing and we had great people watching. The food was good, not great. To start my father and I shared the scallop ceviche, which was our favorite thing of the night. For our entrees I had the field greens salad and my father had the heirloom tomato salad. The ingredients were all very fresh, but the salads felt so plain and not very interesting. I will definitely be back to try the lunch/brunch options and I would recommend Cookshop to anyone who is already in the neighborhood.

    We had a fabulous time at Cookshop. Our waiter, Michael, was one of the best waiters I've ever had. He gave us excellent suggestions for drinks, entrees and desserts - we ordered everything he recommended and each dish was delicious! After chatting with him for a bit, the general manager came to speak with us as well which was incredibly thoughtful. I will definitely recommend this restaurant and come back again soon!

    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.

    Chose Cookshop for brunch following a recommendation from The Times in England and not disappointed. Struck by the variety of breads and unusual Bloody Mary's as well as the more traditional brunch fare. Restaurant is very busy with queues so bill is brought as soon as finished without asking for it and queues for restroom so not a place to linger but a great experience none the less.

    cookshop has been my go-to restaurant for any and all out of town visitors. i took two friends from college there, one of whom had just sold his business. one of my friend's cocktails was taking a long time to get to the table. he very nicely asked our waiter, "are you doing alright with that martini?" the waiter responded, "No, but the bartender is" and walked away. we were gobsmacked. shortly after, a waitress us the drink. she, when we told her we'd asked for olives, not lemon, actually rolled her eyes at us and walked away with his drink. we all laughed, but i was embarrassed. the only time our waiter smiled at us was when he delivered the check. as i said, my friend just sold his business. bill blew it.

    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.

    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.
