After five years in business, ABC Kitchen is still pretty. But after a recent change in chef, the food is just pretty good.
Overall slightly disappointing. One of our two apps we ordered never arrived and it was one we were really looking forward to. Our mains were ok. I ordered the spinach pizza though and it was very very salty.
We ordered two desserts at the end as the descriptions sounded delicious and then they brought them to us and one of them was the wrong item. We asked and they switched it for us. However, both desserts were just okay.
It was a birthday dinner for someone so I was slightly dissappointed that I had took them there... it just didn’t live up to the hype. And for $160 for two people the experience and food was just okay in my opinion. Really bummed because I wanted it to be good!!
Our fourth trip in and it did not disappoint. Will be back
Food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. It was a bit loud. Fine for most people. Older adults may have trouble hearing each other if they are in a large party.
Love the mushroom pizza a jean George staple
Lunch was great!!
Wonderful. Awesome. A tad noisy but worth it.
Fabulous, as always! The spring pea soup with carrots and mint was superb! Never disappoints* Wait staff is terrific, too.
Very loud at peak hours; difficult to have a conversation. But food was excellent, as was service.
Great Anniversary dessert treat surprise!
Food and service was impeccable. Have been there twice in visits fro Washungton State. We ll fo there every visit!.
What a let down. Total tourist trap. Food is old technology and not even that interesting. So many better places to go in the city. So sad! The Frenchman let it go down the toilet just like he did to mercer kitchen which led to a critic calling it the Applebee’s of soho...hence this is the Applebee’s of union square.
Superb service. Great ambience. Excellent food! Will definitely go back again and again!
Great atmosphere, friendly service and very tasty food. the sort of restaurant only found in New York
Great healthly interesting food at high but not outrages prices.
We had an amazing anniversary celebration at ABC Kitchen. Our friends had called ahead and ABC facilitated a champagne toast to kick off our eve. Every dish was perfect and we basked in the soft light and romantic ambiance. Thank you for making this an incredible date to remember
Of our recent trip to NYC, this was by far the best dining experience. Not only was the food fantastic, but the service was top-notch friendly (from bartender, to server, to even the bread-runner). Tip: Ask your server for his/her recommendations of what's best that evening. If we hadn't, we wouldn't have tried the Ramp & Goat Cheese Toast -- and it was amazingly delicious. Loved the Spring Pea Soup and the Duck Confit was to die for.
Our only complaint is the extremely poor lighting. "Mood lighting" is too dark when you have to hold the candle up to the menu. Not only that, but the dim lighting interferes with the enjoyment of your food when you can't see its components ("what is that, a potato?") or how well the kitchen plated the dish. That's the only reason I gave 2 stars for Ambiance. Bring up the lighting a little bit, please, and your restaurant would be perfect.
This place is always amazing. It's a little pricy, so we save it for special occasions, but the food is incredible. The menu is seasonal, although some of the items seem to be pretty perennial. The design is beautiful as well. Highly recommended.
Always a great experience! Excellent sevice and delicious, fresh food.
After a slow start, no water or menus for way too long after we were showed our table at 2:30 on a Saturday. Our server made up for this in the end and was attentive. Eggs and ice cream sundae were wonderful --but the kale salad with shrimp was terrible.
This place is gorgeous and they have quality food for the most part but nothing amazing. Everything we had was just not perfect, could use maybe 1 more ingredient. Just didn’t hit the spot. But very pretty place and great wait staff
We waited about 10 minutes for our table. It was very busy lunch crowd, but super loud. We asked to be seated in the outer bar area because of the noise, which was accommodated. Service , food and wine was really great. Great ambiance.
ABC Kitchen is a go-to when trying to impress out of town friends with a great vibey scene paired with delicious food and cocktails. I find their service to be impeccable and their crowd to always be beautiful and very NYC-chic. Will continue to come back!
I've been to ABC Kitchen many times on different occasions. It's always consistent- good food, good service, good atmosphere. It has stayed the course and lasted in a competitive NYC restaurant environment. It has lost it's superior rating to me. It took awhile to get our cocktails. We ordered a bottle of wine for table after cocktails. One of our party finished her wine and the waiter took her wine glass away. When I questioned it, he said the bottle was empty. You would think he would have at least asked if we wanted another bottle for the table. Our meal was good- in keeping with my expectations. We all had fish. Dessert was not good. So dissappointing given a restaurant of this caliber and the pricing. It's "jumped the shark"!
Three friends on a trip to New York and lunch at abc kitchen. Amazing restaurant!!!! Food, service and ambiance. Was such a good experience!!
Nice restaurant, excellent food, large dining area with a lot of space even though it was full. Nice ambiance and deco.
Dreamy decor. Delicious food and great waitstaff.
Never disappoints! Service and food always amazing !!
ABC is in theory lovely but we sent a plate back as a 17 dollar mains salad was about the size of a small side salad. It totally took away from the experience. The food is overrated and overall we were disappointed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
Beautiful decor with exceptional service. The crab toast is memorable. One of my favorite places in NYC for a friends get-together.
Always love ABC Kitchen.
nice service and fine dishes
Food is excellent and the atmosphere is unique
The service was excellent
Disappointed by the food and service. Waitress and waiter were cold and inattentive. Water empty all night. Kale salad looked like someone threw it up on the plate and tasted bland. Just an overall mediocre evening.
Ronnie and Reme suggested items for us to try and they were spot on in all of their suggestions. Food was great but the staff made it special. Thanks so much for an awesome derby dinner.
Outstanding in every respect, one of the greatest meals on the planet. Normally not easy to get a table but we got lucky! We love JG.
Fish entrees were bad. But the pasta, pizza, toasts and sashimi were great.
