    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!

    I've been to Kilo a half dozen times and always enjoy the food (small plates, interesting preparations), easygoing atmosphere, and service. Lots to like although the space is quite small so best for smaller and more intimate dinners.

    This very small place only has a few strange items on their menu, and the servers wear clothes more casual than the diners. The laid back atmosphere is great for hipsters and foodies, but I wasn't enthused by paying high prices for nonchalant service.

    The food was great, I ordered mushroom tacos and olives, which were very tasty. My friends were from Dubai and the waitress process the payment so she knew they are out of town. They left 10% tip, and she literally "attacked" them, suggesting that the "normal" tip is 18-20%. I am confident that this would not happen had they not been foreigners. She made me very uncomfortable for her. It is a pity because I liked the food and would def come back had this not happen.

    This place knocked my socks off. It's a small restaurant with small tables fit for more of an intimate gathering of 2-4 people. Our server really knew wine. I like sweet wines like Moscatos and some Rieslings, and our server had me try a pink bubbly Moscato that gave him a vision of "Victoria Secret models having a pillow fight." HE WAS RIGHT, it was the best wine I've ever had. My husband and I shared 3 small plates: Goat Cheese Crostini, Shrimp and Grits, and Octopus. We were blown away by all three. Flavorful, well-presented, and decently filling. It's a pricey place, but worth it in my book.

    A friend recommended this place to me. I was glad he did. Everything was wonderful. They were out of the wine I selected but after a couple of questions about what I like, our server brought out a lovely, delicious bottle. The food was amazing. I'm a vegetarian and it gets difficult finding places that have something other than a salad and roasted vegetables. I was very please with the variety and freshness of everything. It's a little place, so if you are going at peak times, make a reservation. Loved everything about this place.

    Kilo is a teeny tiny restaurant with a lot of heart. The wine list is wonderful, the staff helpful but not pushy or in your face, and the food is great. Small plates with an earthy feel and some of which (the octopus and mushroom tacos especially) have a twist of surprise to them. The atmosphere is romantic with wooden tables, tiny flickering candles, and a sort of rustic/cool vibe. Brunch is also exquisite! Coffee made fresh by the cup for you, delicious and earthy plates, and a sunny sweet atmosphere.

    Made reservations for brunch for no reason, since restaurant was deserted. Not sure why it was so empty as it was the Saturday before St. Patrick's day. Very small, with egg-only menu, odd. Service was fine & the eggs were good, sausage was delicious. Not sure if we would go back. Coffee, from blue bottle was good, but there was no milk & the cream was slightly curdled.

    If you want healthy, imaginative and invredibly delicious food, get here fast, but be ready to wait. While organic is a way of life, Kilo makes being healthy fun. The meatballs were exceptional, a special beet salad was tasty (although sparse) and the lamb special was one of the tastiest dishes ever enjoyed. LJ provided pehomenal service, answering every question, and was genuinely excited that we loved our meal. He was accomodating about wines and made the evening that much better. Go. Now. Enjoy. Can't wait to return.

    Low key, which leads to a comfortable, relaxing experience. The small plates are oh so tasty. Be sure to have a cuppa joe. My dining partner was thrilled with it's heavenly aroma and it was the best coffee I had all day (and I'd had a few!). Our server was attentive without being invasive and although we were next to the full bar we could still hear each other .

    I brought my foodies in from Brooklyn. We ended up spending four hours there! They loved it! It's a haunt of mine that NEVER ceases to please!!!! The staff is so knowledgeable about the wine!! Really, they can tell you what valley , the grape varietal came up from, in like any country. So amazing! Also, after all that, get everything on the menu to go with, I love farm to table concept! Never expect the same thing twice!
