What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.4

After five years in business, ABC Kitchen is still pretty. But after a recent change in chef, the food is just pretty good.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

Food is good and ambiance was nice but you’re pushed to eat very quickly to make space for the next customers, as a result it becomes an unpleasant and disappointing experience, especially for the price ...

ABC Kitchen always delivers on the quality and creativity of the food. The service, however, is generally slow and distracted. It's never fun to have to expedite one's lunch...

Crab toast wasn’t really out of the world, as many people suggested.

Loved the mushroom pizza and the carrots were surprisingly flavorful.

Gimlet and gin negroni paired well with food

Topped it off with a popcorn caramel sundae with hot chocolate fudge and I was a happy bird.

One of servers was very pleasant, another downright rude. Although the physical building was a nice ambience, the chairs & table were cafeteria- like. The drinks were small & full of ice. Desert average. Pizza good. Fish average.

Service was somewhat slow, we waited for almost 20 min after being seated before a waiter approached (and we had to ask someone to please send a waiter). Food was excellent. A little loud (def not a place to have a quiet conversation). Extremely smart, well thought- out menu.

Well-prepared dishes, some outstanding, from carefully-sourced ingredients.
Service was busy but appropriately attentive.
The loudest restaurant I ever have eaten in. I measured the sound level using an app on my phone (Decibel X) and it averaged 84 with a max of 93. With tables so close together you're at the mercy of people at the next table trying to be heard above the din. It was difficult to hear the servers.

Celebrated my sisters birthday in the city, ABC Kitchen was more than gracious with their service even bringing a birthday dessert after brunch. Food was amazing, and service was above and beyond anything we expected. Highly recommend the french toast, bloody mary, coffee, and splurging for that extra side of bacon!

The food is incredible but holy moly is it loud in there and so so dark! Everyone had their cell phone lights on just to see the menu. And the staff is overly-attentive as in I don't need my water filled the second I take a sip. It's a little much.

I've gone to ABC before and enjoyed it, but this recent visit was not as good. It was too dark, to the point at which people were using phone cameras to read the menu. The squash salad appetizer was very fresh and springy (excellent use of lemon). The pork chop, unfortunately, was not as rich and tender as I hoped. Also, I felt the spinach did not pair well (how it was seasoned) with the pork. Still, the quality of the food was high. Overall, I was satisfied, but I probably won't go back for a while.
