What Insiders Are Saying
ABC Cocina is the Flatiron-located, Latin-inspired sequel to ABC Kitchen, and it’s better than the original.
Great food, delightful service. A bit noisy however. Super location and great vibe.
Fabulous food, wonderful experience!
The menu is creative with some standards ... quality and presentation is very good. Service is excellent. At lunch I had a tequila on the rocks with a splash of orange juice ... perfect !
Food is always a hit but the service this time was a total miss. It was a busy Sunday brunch and our drink order wasn't taken for at least 20 minutes. Then at the end we placed an order for dessert and approximately 20 mins later when the check was dropped off did we realize the waitress had left and didn't put our order in. Disappointed by the service.
I love ABC Cocina and usually frequent during lunch hours. There was a great vibe this last Saturday, it was busy, good music and ambiance. The food is always on point but unfortunately the service wasn't so, we waited for almost 20 mins for a menu, then longer to order and then it was frustrating when wanting to order more drinks throughout the meal. It was a shame because otherwise all was great.
This was my second dinner at ABC Cocina and it was disappointing. I booked a week in advance and the front of house sat us at a high table, I thought this was for a drink until our table was ready but we ate dinner there. Most of our food was cold when it arrived. I found the staff rude and unpleasant. I will not return.
Food is served Tapas style, so bring a friend and share. We started with cocktails, the pear daiquiri was delightful with just a hint of spice. For dinner we shared 4 small plates, Empanadas, honeynut squash, cheese fondue and BBQ pork tacos. All were delicious, but the empanadas were my favorite. The service was good especially for a very busy Saturday night. We finished the night with the Vanilla fritters with Mexican chocolate, again fantastic. With a reservation we waited about 3-5 minutes. The wait without was over an hour. We will definitely be going back
The food did not wow me, i did not love one dish i tried and i bad 6 dishes and desserts, i love ABCKitchen and thought this would be almost the same with a Latin twist, Instead, the food was bland, boring and not tasteful, even the tres leches was a disappointment and that’s a dessert you really don’t have to try to recreate. Bottom line, we enjoyed the experience of going but the plates were way to overpriced, nothing seemed Latin about the dishes, they were flavorless & unfortunately the waiter tended to take a little long to come back to us.
Wonderful, interesting and delicious-tasting Mexican-inspired food . Great atmosphere and fun service. Portion-size vs cost (and therefore value) would be my only question.
Do not get the butternut squash. So oily it was inedible. The tacos are filling and pretty good, but very overpriced. The interior design is stunning, and it was a nice atmosphere. But the food was unimpressive
Food was amazing! Would go back again!
Service was a little slow. Went there for lunch and had to rush to get out after being there for an hour and twenty. There was only 2 of us dinning.
I took my chance based upon the previous positive reviews. Since I enjoyed the experience I wanted to extend it to other for this Sunday but alas due to a party I am on the wait list! However that will not deter me from trying to go again (but I guess I need to make reservations way in advance). I was the first in my party to arrive and after walking around the city all day and a terrible experience with Sprint I longed for a drink and a seat. The host graciously took my coat and allowed me to sit (fortunately one of my guests arrived timely so we ordered a welcomed drink. Two others in my party of 4 had been there before and therefore took charge of the order. The guacamole was delicious, a bit crunchy, enough for four but we quickly ordered another. And so it went the entire evening from reordering the inviting and delectable shrimp in garlic to the mouth watering ribs to the tasty fish tacos. The others enjoyed their flavorful Marguaritas and I the just right Manhattan ( with a second behind it)!. The service was accommodating with smiles and prompt delivery of food (perhaps as we were all hungry!) The atmosphere is bright, energizing with various options in tables.
A must to experience leaving us all with fond memories of feeling satiated with warm conversations with friends and associates.
Love this place. Food is excellent and original. Sat at the bar and the service was great. We ordered Jamon Iberico and the first plate was really "fatty" so we asked to send it back. They took it back no questions asked, were very accommodating like a quality restaurant should be and replaced the order with a perfect plate of the Spanish delicacy. Everything we superb! I go here often and I think it keeps getting better...Hmmm, perhaps that's why I keep going back. Other restaurants should take a lesson.
Had to wait 35 minutes past my reservation time.
ABC Cocina has been a must visit for us whenever we go to NY, for years now. The kitchen remains outstanding, the space still enchanting, and our server was a delight. On this visit however, hospitality was lacking: curiously, even though we had a 6:00 pm reservation for 3 on a Friday, and the restaurant was nearly vacant on our arrival, we were seated at a two-top next to the door leading to the store. I expressed some surprise/dismay to the hostess and requested that we be reseated at a larger table. She consulted with her manager, and with something less than enthusiasm, she showed us to a table in the window by outside door. This was both a blessing and a curse; slightly removed from the main dining area, our table was relatively quiet, and we had the pleasure of Nathan's service. On the downside, my sense is that the hostess felt inconvenienced by my request; which was off-putting. The first impression is the most important; and the first impression on our visit - the all-important welcome - was subpar. That said, the food and beverage was stellar, and the manager was gracious when I spoke with him on our departure. We look forward to our next visit.
Lovely, lovely place. The cocktails are very good and the food is fantastic particularly the short rib 🌮 s and the octopus
It was a birthday celebration..Service and good was great but we got a small bad table by the window...Too small for 3 people...
We had a great time nonetheless...It is a beautiful spot...
The server and hosts were amazing
Waiter was great. Food was alright but nothing special. Women’s restroom was filthy.
One of my favorite spots in the city. The food is dependably amazing and the service is always on point.
Hip and tasty food. Nice people watching. Would definitely come back.
Very noisy the egg Rancho was over cooked and we ordered a different sandwich the waitress never checked!
Awesome food and great service!
I had eaten at the original ABC last year and had heard about the Mexican Restaurant. I live in NYC but was having at staycation for one night at the Nomad Hotel. I purposefully wanted to have dinner at ABC Cocina. The service and food and ambience were excellent. I never had had a basil margarita but at my waiter’s suggestion I tried it and it was delicious. Also had the beet salad and fish tacos, also delicious. Best of all, I did not feel uncomfortable as a single diner.
Great food... Great service... Fritters are a must
Great lunch experience with bursting flavors!! You could never go wrong with ABC Cocina. It’s definitely on the pricey side for a lunch experience.
Service was poor. The food wasn’t up to par like it used to be. In fact one dish was so bad we didn’t eat it. Told the waiter yet was still in the bill at end of the night.
Food; the entree was oké, the main course was not so good except the steak; super!! The dessert was average... to cold to sweet to common.. ! For a Christmas diner iT was not enough. The manager is great and one of the kindest!!! The environment is beautiful!! Please make something of this great place!! The food from Buddakan and the environment from your plave is the a big 10!!
Service wasn't great, but all other aspects of the restaurant were wonderful!
Over Priced for quaiity and quantity of food. Also noisy.
Great service all around, delicious food and drinks.
Family dinner to celebrate Christmas Eve
Beautiful setting with interesting dishes. While the prices are a bit high, I'd recommend this spot for special events and a group of people to be able to share and taste many dishes.
Hello and Thank you. This was my second time coming into the restaurant. First was awesome. Second time not so much. Our server Kelsey was not attentive at all. We wanted to celebrate together for Christmas and was ready to Drink. Kelsey only checked on us once and that was to tell us the Kitchen was closing for dinner setup. Our Calamari also came out much later which leads me to believe that he forgot to put it in on time. I probably will not be back anytime soon. Kind of a Bummer!
The food was incredible.
The service was exceptional, as was the food. Love the place
Every morsel we tasted Wednesday night was incredibly interesting and delicious. The flavors and combinations of tastes and textures were outstanding. We LOVED everything! Another excellent meal at ABC Cocina!
A smooth ambiance and a very good elements of food! One of the “must try” of NYC!
