A word from Craftbar
Chef Luke Wallace prepares seasonal inspired dishes at Tom Colicchio’s casual Flatiron restaurant. The menu features a wide variety of small & large plates from Snacks, House-Made Charcuterie, Salumi, Artisanal Cheeses, Salads as well as Handmade Pastas, all expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The rustic and comfortable dining room lends itself to a quick lunch where guests can try our Croque Monsieur, a full dinner of Choucroute Garnie and Ricotta Ravioli, or a snack of Pecorino Arancini and East Coast Oysters. We are also serving a soul-satisfying brunch with dishes like Pork Scrapple & Eggs and our Applewood Smoked Salmon prepared in-house. Be sure to save room for Pastry Chef, Abby Swain’s creations including her take on the S’mores Tart. Continued
Diner Reviews
  • "Tom Colicchio has clearly been gone from Craftbar for some time. The skate was spoiled - nothing like a mouthful of ammonia to ruin a dinner - with barely an apology from the server and no attention whatsoever from the manager. At least she took it off the bill, but that was the extent of their effort to make us feel better about the evening. The veal meatballs were cold, the capellini tasted like canned spaghetti, and the banana dessert had an ill advised scoop of candy sweet chocolate ice cream that completely overwhelmed the rest of the dish. Tom, pack your knives and go."

  • "The service here is top notch and the food is very imaginative.The sardine with egg bruschetta, beet salad, fried chicken and angnolotti were wonderful. Their wine list and cocktails are also superb. Comfortable seating, classy atmosphere and hopping bar scene make this the place to go."

  • "Good lunch but nothing special. Service was often nowhere in sight!"

  • "Food good but very limited menu served in very stark space. Service quite good , professional and friendly."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The food is fine, certainly (on the salty side). Service is brisk and appropriate. Decor is kinda basic but not any sort of problem, or appeal. This is not a flawless restaurant, but it's a good and accessible one. Enjoy it!"

  • "Had the chicken and waffles and the croque madame. Both were delicious. The space itslef is one of the most beautiful and spacious restaurants in new york. Looking forward to returning soon!"

  • "Saturday brunch was delicious. The beet salad with citrus was so clean and fresh, the croque monsieur was closer to French that I have had in NYC and the veal meatballs are fantastic. Our server was attentive without being noticeable or hovering. He was very busy but managed to be cheerful, helpful and calm with all his tables. the noise level is a little higher than I like for dinner but was acceptable for lunch."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Was taking some out-of-town visitors to dinner and wanted to go somewhere good, knows it is good but without the attitude. Craftbar was excellent. The service was the best I have experienced in a long time from the check-in desk to the barman to the server; all if them taking the job of hosting seriously rather than viewing the customer as an inconvenience. Food was great and we stayed well after closing hours without any fuss. Looking forward to visiting again as this level of attention is hard to find these days (unless you are famous)."

  • "My husband and I had luch at Craftbar with my mother and everything was excelent. Food, drinks, wine, ambience, service... absolutely no bad aspects at all. A special note to the service that was outstanding. I feel obliged to point out that we were received with smiles and treated very well. Staff is kind, patient and has a very positive vibe. I will always come back."

  • "Everything from the moment we arrived to us leaving was superb. Every mouthful of food was delicious and both the food and staff were excellent. What a great experience to come all the way from Edinburgh."

  • "got the eye-roll when we showed up with our kids when the place was empty. it's NY, we don't need that sort of attitude here."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I understand that the menu is designed depends on what the chef finds fresh in the market on a daily basis, however, I do believe that there should be a regular menu for those restaurant lovers that eat out every week, having a regular menu will make people come back more often. This is my 4th time at this restaurant, my first time I was blown away with the food, it was delicious to the point that I still remember what I ordered. The second time the food was good, but the last two times I found the food quite simple and tasteless. I probably not coming back, I ended up paying a check for $200 for a dinner of two and the only one thing good was the drinks. Quite disappointed"

  • "Went for Restaurant Week and was seated in an area with others doing the same (I think they separated us from the others? But it was a nice spot). The food was delicious and I had a hard time deciding which option to go with. I will say that they take their time with the service and don't seem in a rush to get you in and out. Which would be great for a weekend lunch or a dinner but I was trying to grab lunch during work so I couldn't really afford the leisurely pace. But all in all it was a great experience and I will definitely go back to try it again!"

  • "I went here with a group of friends, some foodies, some not, and everyone was able to find something within their comfort zone to enjoy. It can be tough to find spots that caters to multiple levels of food adventurism, but this is one that I know I can count on to provide anything from comfort food to more unique spins on traditional meals at a reasonable price."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Four of us had a great time here. The waitress was very helpful and her suggestions were spot on. We shared a number of apps, entrees and dessert. Would definitely go again. Food was creative and delicious!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "the food was very good although the menu is small and had only one vegetarian entree (albeit a very good one). wine list is extensive but a bit pricey, but overall our experience was enjoyable and i would recommend."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Everything about the restaurant was wonderful - except for tremenous, high decible noise level. If you are planning to have any kind of conversation and don't want to know your neighboring table's likes, dislikes, gossip and trivia - don't go, at least not for lunch. It might possibly be worth wearing earphones to eat the wonderful food."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "All the staff, from the host to the coat check clerk to the waiter, were all very smiling and helpful. The service was polite and fast. Food was excellent with a good choice variety."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The beet salad is amazing, even if you don't like beets. Beer selection is slightly limited, but if you like wine, I believe the menu was about 40 pages. I was dining alone on business, but welcomed warmly."

  • "Had lunch & enjoyed Dinner not so good Food disappointing salt"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The fonduta and rice balls, as well as the choc and pb cake were delicious; however, I ordered the the new Carbonara entree and I was not at all pleased. Aside from it being macaroni and having no cream sauce at all (as a Carbonara always does), it was one of the most salty things I've ever had."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "there were so many choices which was so refreshing! a great deal and I would go back there for dinner. I had the fondito(sp?) and the buttermilk chicken along with the chocolate peanut butter pie-just right and just a hint of the peanut butter....the cake with the lemon curd was also delicious. Wanted to try everything on the menu-excellent choices."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "I had lunch at Craftbar on 3/3. The food was excellent. the service was great and the ambiance was fun. I will definitely dine here again."

  • "Service was great and the place is very nice but the food was disappointing."

  • "First time at Craftbar but not the first time at Craft restaurant. It didn't disappoint. Creative mixing of ingredients and exceptional service guarantees a great experience."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Everything was solid. The fried chicken was delicious, I wish there was more! I had the pitchers for first course, which was good. My colleague had the rice ball and liked it. He also enjoyed his burger. Desserts were a mixed bag. The chocolate peanut butter was good. But the lemon custard fell flat. It lacked any taste. Maybe I was looking for more "lemon". Overall though, it was a great place to go to - especially with the amount of food choices on their menu."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Was disappointed in the Buttermilk fried chicken, consisting mostly of skin and bones. Had only one bite of chicken. Otherwise, we liked it. But the stinginess of the chef took our rating down to just average."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Craftbar is a very lovely, open air-y space with a delicious menu and overly polite service."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Went for lunch during NY winter restaurant week. Food was not so good since the mussels definitely had seen better days. Other dishes were ok but nothing special."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "I was surprised how inattentive the staff was. For example, my husband, accidentally, dropped his napkin. A busman was standing right there, watched the napkin fall, but did not pick it up. My husband had to ask for a clean napkin, after bending down to pick it up himself."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Disappointed with the food. Burger too salty. Didn't like the crisps instead of fries. Felt cheaply done for resturaunt week. Had better before"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We reviewed the menu before we made our reservation. The descriptions were great, the food was ok. All had different items as we try to share the experience. Risotto balls were very good, the winter squash soup was one note, the anchovies and egg salad on toast was just ok. Duck hearts were a hit but the dumpling was confusing, the fried chicken was greasy and not crisp when served on top of the grits and collard greens (ultimately the best part of the meal) and the sliders were under-seasoned. Dessert was also an afterthought. The poppy seed cake was more of a muffin. The cheese plate was a single slice of cheese with two hunks of bread and frisee (again, confusing) and the pb cake was the best of the three. It was Restaurant Week."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Our reservation was honored, the table was perfect out of the maddening crowd . All in all it was a most enjoyable experience"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "It worked for us to decide on a last-minute reservation. We requested and granted a corner booth to be able to talk over dinner. That was great. I had always heard about Craft Bar but was underwhelmed by the food and drink. The staff were delightful and helpful. However, my Hendricks martini up was room temp. My friend's "house special meatballs" were luke warm and rather full of filler. My skate fish was greasy from over-frying. It was Monday night, not a lively scene I guess, fine with us, but the whole place looked a little shabby - banquette seating was threadbare, exposed bussing stations ruined the mood. I think it was probably great at its introduction, but now CraftBar seems a bit passé, and the owners don't seem to care."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "The restaurant week lunch menu was extensive with plenty of choices for both the first and second course. I would prefer a beverage choice instead of dessert but the three dessert choices included something for everyone. I ended up with half of my panino and half of my dessert leftover for lunch the next day. The service was attentive but not over bearing. I would go back for restaurant week lunch again."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "We were very disappointed- expecting a first-class experience which it was not. Food only average."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "Went for a work lunch to find delightful surprise of rest. week menu. Food was delicious, proper portions and service was good."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I was just there for lunch during restaurant week and it was fabulous. The menu selections are great. Very diverse. I had the arancini in spicy tomato sauce and the salmon. They were both delicious. Perfectly portioned. My dessert was the meyer lemon poppy seed cake which was a great dessert. Small size, not overwhelmingly sweet. Makes me want to go back."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "VERY LOUD are the first words that come to mind. Fortunately our party was seated in an alcove that was somewhat sheltered from the noise. Menu is not groundbreaking but it was fine - lots of cheese and charcuterie for starters, the regular range of meats and fish for main courses. For vegetarians (like me), there is one vegetarian (pasta) entree and a couple of vegetarian salads for starters. Our waiter was friendly but not quite up on the beer list: he did not let the beer drinker at our table know that his IPA was a very high-alcohol imperial IPA, though the diner specifically asked if it was a double IPA (high alcohol content) beer. There was also confusion each course with the servers about who got what dish."
