What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.4

ABC Cocina is the Flatiron-located, Latin-inspired sequel to ABC Kitchen, and it’s better than the original.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

I had such high expectations for this restaurant. I was thoroughly disappointed with the food and drinks. The best thing was the guac. But the margaritas tasted watered down and the arroz con pollo had no flavor. The tacos were underwhelming, not to mention the tortilla was soggy when it reached the table. Maybe next time they will get it right. The service was excellent and so was our waiter. The ambiance was great. Just wish the food had been better for the price— I wanted to be wowed and I was not.

Typically love Jean George restaurants, bit this was disappointing to the point of unpleasant. Tiny table for 3, excessively noisy, mediocre food, rushed service, watery martini...

Absolutely terrible service which is very disappointing because I have dined here many times before. I had also left this review and I believe it was deleted because I just got asked again. Being it was such a bad day of service, on my birthday no less, k felt the need to reemphasize how negative a night I had.

Our party of 2 had a wonderful late lunch at ABC Cocina. Service was lovely - very helpful and knowledgeable. We never felt rushed although we were by far the last table to leave. The food was inventive and delicious. Lots of gluten-free options. Our server suggested a Mexican, slightly effervescent white wine which was very different and delicious. We have been here several times before - we always leave happy - and we will return.

Lovely restaurant with friendly service. However, the word "cocina" implies Mexican cuisine, and as such, it was about as disappointing as possible. In fact, it was more pretentious than tasty: bland tacos and empanadas (no wonder there's a bottle of habera salsa on the table...without it, the food had no discernible flavor) and an overdressed salad.

Tapas friendly
We wanted something in the area close to movies ABC Cocina was right there 1st time Service was great and helpful, Can recommend the crab balls , empanadas are amazing waiter said they have a women that comes in to make the dough and you can tell so light I do laugh that opentable list this place as cheap isn't not the most expensive place in NY but wouldn't say it's cheap $$ it's more $$$ due to the wine list and it's tapas portions are small as tapas is but average tapas is $17 All that said will be back when in the area our Waiter was the best

I loved my experience at abc Cocina. The bar tender was very helpful, charming, and my drinks were amazing. The atmosphere and the service was wonderful. My only complaint was that there was a particular sauce, I think it was chipotle flavored, that was on several dishes. Some variation in that respect would have been great. But overall loved my experience and highly recommend!

I love the atmosphere here- industrial with the perfect amount of "pretty" glassware, flowers, sparkle. The dishes are plated so attractively and are wonderful combinations of flavors, foods that surprise. Loved the shaved brussel sprout salad and fish tacos. I'll be returning to taste more.
