    sad to see this place has gone south. used to frequent here a lot when first opened. probably won't be back. brunch food was dry and bland, service was rough. the server hardly spoke english and couldn't understand or communicate anything and didn't get what we asked for. it was really frustrating. and overall not very attentive. a lot of staff and it wasn't very busy so not sure why the service was so slow and had to suffer.

    I booked this restaurant last minute for a large party. The staff was friendly, welcoming and pleasant. The staff was the best part of the dining experience. The food was mediocre at best (bland, uninspired) and took over 40 minutes for appetizers to come out. The drinks took longer! There was 1 bartender for this large restaurant with a decent crowd at the bar. It took over 20 minutes even for a glass of champagne!

    We had a bunch of appetizers and cocktails. I recommend the crostinis, the shrimp tacos, and the mussels! Our waiter was super friendly and very sweet, he made us laugh a lot. It was a little loud, but there was also a party happening so that might be why- and we didn't really mind.

    The Kitchen has extended the Restaurant Week menu till the end of August which I though was nice but with many limitations in dishes. We however enjoyed a "regular" dinner menu with absolutely delicious Chicken Tajine and Pretzel Pork!! Chicken was perfectly seasoned with hot spices and so tender and juicy that it was melting in my mouth, served with couscous, dried fruit and crispy vegetables and, nicely presented. Big portion of apple salad could had served as a meal on its own. Nice cocktails (I recommend Twisted Ruby) but limited wine list....Overall a very nice dinner!

    I wanted to take my girlfriend out for her birthday to a place we have never been before and it was the KTCHN. The ambience was nice and the food was good. The surprise for the night there is a stage for life performances while dining. There "Hall of Fame" wall of pictures were unique. I would recommend friends to KTCHN; the surprise is the perfromance you would be caught of guard. Enjoy

    Apps were disappointing and too salty, while entrées weren't impressive just like the service. Warm molten chocolate cake was cold In the center. Staff seemed overwhelmed when the tables weren't full on a Sunday early evening. Maybe the main chef was off that day.

    We went for Restaurant Week, though only one of us ordered from the RW options, as the lunch menu is very limited in choices and the prices are low enough it is a bargain anyway. The food was tasty and the portions adequate. The room is modern and sleek and white and bright and shiny. The friendly and gracious staff are what really made it an enjoyable experience.

The dishes are beautifully presented only to be outdone by the deliciousness of each dish! All the people I have recommended KTCHN to feel the same way. Don't miss out on this New York Foodie Treasure! Don't miss their Sunday Brunch with The Haus of Mimosa!

    We found kTCHN the night we moved in down the street and it has been our go to place ever since. The staff is fun and friendly and the food is consistently well prepared and creative. Tempura green beans are a must have but prepare to be addicted. The service is over the top - the hosts remember me since my first visit and always take good care of me as a frequent diner.

    glass top tables wobble, booth backs are loose so if the weight is heavier on the other side you keep getting hit in the back, the toilets are something else, it is unisex with multiple booths in the same room without the benefit of floor to ceiling doors,.......and the service.....we were greeted by the only waitress screaming at us from the bar and asking if we had a reservation or just wanted a table. KTCHN is not just missing letters in its name its missing much mmore

    The brunch is quite good. If you order the unlimited mimosas, ask them to leave a carafe on the table. This way they don't have to keep coming back and you don't have to wait for a refill. They will even refill the carafe once it's empty. The drag show is entertaining and fun.

    We ate here for brunch and the food was excellent! I wish I could say the same for the service but it was a little rocky. The drag show was so much fun, we loved it but our drinks were terrible! The "sangria" was just some red wine with an orange slice and straw. This place seems to be hit or miss...

    I am very happy with my dining experience at this restaurant. Why only (4) stars? Well, a couple of reasons. 1. My buddy ordered quinea bites that tasted very bland. The rest of the food was spot on. I had the meatloaf and loved every bite. I didn't expect comfort food in such a place so it was a welcomed treat. 2. The service was nice but not perfect. I had to flag down staff on two separate occasions to get another drink. I would recommend this place as a great first date spot though. Relatively private, quiet and upscale environment. You can share a hearty laugh without everyone looking at you too! I would definitely recommend trying this place at least once!
