    Nice local wine bar. We go there regularly and the food / service is consistently good. 2 (or 3 smaller) plates per person should make for a filling dinner.

    We relied on other reviews before deciding on Kilo. It's a tiny restaurant with small tables, very nice ambiance and excellent tapas style food choices. We chose 6 different dishes and doubled up on the tacos, so we ordered a total of 7 dishes for four people. It turned out to be the right amount of food for us. We were very pleased with all of our dish choices. We also ordered wine by the glass. Whites & reds. Great selection. We definitely plan to return...

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP

    To me kilo represents exactly what NY is all about -a small, neighborhood place somewhat loud, innovative and amazing food and exceptional wine. I've never had a bad meal here and the service staff is exceptional.

    Kilo is an intimate spot of 9th Avenue. We had a really nice time there. The service was outstanding, very helpful and very friendly. The selection of wines is extensive. The small plate selection was a bit limiting but we had some really nice dishes. You must try the melted brie with pistachios and maple syrup. Excellent!

    It's a pretty intimate setting so for people who don't mind small places, the ambience is fantastic. The service was great although the server gave me the impression that he was very busy. His recommendations for tapas were SPOT ON, though. The brie in particular was just perfect!

    I took my cousin here for his birthday and we were really underwhelmed. The food was good and the decor nice but it was nothing really special. I thought the food was incrediblely overpriced, even for midtown! For four tapas and a bottle of sparking water we spent $75 before tip! I definitely will not be back.

    I continue to eat and drink at Kilo because the food has been consistently very good. They do change their menu frequently, but keep the standard favorites: the meatballs, the iron cast kale, the goat cheese crostini. They added pork belly tacos and I thought I had died and gone to heaven!!

    This was probably the fourth or fifth time we've eaten at Kilo -- we've gone here before the theater, which is every few months for us -- and it seemed the various dishes lacked the taste punch I recall from previous visits. At the same time, the prices seem to have gone up a dollar or two per dish. Mushroom tacos were very good, as were the patatas bravas (I ate too many). But, the salmon tartare was merely good (lacking that punch I mentioned earlier), while the grilled shrimp dish was poor, featuring a size of shrimp that would qualify for "micro," if there was such a designation. The fifth dish we had was forgettable, and I forgot was it was. We might or might not return.

    We went there for a pre theatre nosh and were very pleasantly surprised! LJ the wine connoisseur introduced us to 2 wonderful wines based on the wines we like to drink and he did not disappoint! Every thing he brought out to us from the kitchen was outstanding, all on his recommendation....he happened to over hear that it was my birthday and came out with a fabulous blueberry pannacotta (spelling?) with a candle on it! That was so sweet! Great experience and will def be back!

    It's kind of a tiny little place, and the tables are tiny too (so careful how much you order). Interesting wine list... but we thoroughly enjoyed our selection. The waitress let us try 2 bottles we were considering so we can better pick the one we liked, which was really nice. Her overall attitude was a little blah though. The food definitely made it worth it. We had such interesting combinations of flavors, and would definitely come back and try it again.

    Everything was great, the wine, the food.. My friend and I got the octopus, scallops, and pappas bravas. Pappas bravas weren't so great.. and some were a little bit undercooked. But the octopus and scallops were out of this world. Would definitely go back and bring friends (one at a time.. small place :))

    My fiancé and I love kilo. The atmosphere is refined for the Hell's Kitchen location and the service always phenomenal. Special thanks always to the sommelier who ensures that your wine is exactly what you're in the mood for, but also with push your boundaries and expectations. The food is great but portions have gotten smaller.

    Vey cool, super laid-back, divey vibe here (in the best possible way). The food was amazing. Dishes that stood out: beet salad (the miso aioli was amazing!), goat cheese crostini (I'm totally making these at home), and quinoa (ditto on making this at home). It was just my wife and I and we split probably five dishes and a bottle of wine and it was one of our favorite dinners in recent memory. BTW, be sure to make a reservation - this place gets filled up quick!
