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.

Had a very lovely evening. Most of the food was fantastic. The only reason I don't give the experience five stars is some of the food wasn't balanced. The salmon was cooked perfectly, but totally overpowered by the mushrooms. The chicken was cooked perfectly, but it was just a GIANT chicken breast. It didn't feel special. The servers were personable and mostly attentive for how busy the restaurant was. I'd definitely recommend the restaurant, though I did prefer the food at their sister restaurant next door, ABC Cucina. That's just personal preference on menu options. Was surprised there was no beef on the menu except for a burger. Get the carrot/avocado salad. That was perfectly balanced and delicious! The crab toast was unbelievable fresh, so I'd recommend that as well.

We were seating in the middle area, which is essentially an empty no mans land between the main restaurant areas and a lighting store. $250 for 4 small sharing plates and a couple of drinks each. Just wasn’t feeling it, when there’s so much choice in NYC.

Very disappointing meal. Have been several times through the years and surprised to find every dish executed with a level of mediocrity one doesn’t expect from Jean georges. Won’t be back.

Food was very mediocre and definitely not good price for value. Service was ok but they couldn’t get many of the very basics right (let the customer taste the wine, serve the lady first etc). Absolutely overprived for what it is.

Great quality but a bit pricey. Since the restaurant is very popular there is little flexibility to change anything from the menu. In addition it takes a while to get your food (we waited more than 30 min)Surprisingly they have a very limited number of vegan options even if their sister restaurant is next door. Sometimes vegans go and eat with non-vegans ;-)

We had a reservation at 1:30 and weren't seated until 2pm. However, the manager was lovely and sent complimentary dishes to our table without us asking and was very apologetic.
Beautiful spot and fabulous lunch.

Delicious food, great service, very loud. The wine person was so kind and helpful, allowing us to try a bit of two wines before we chose our glass - and we each had only a glass. I love that she and all the staff are paid a living wage so that it is a no-tip place. I would definitely eat there again - such well-seasoned and interesting food, but not with a group occasional where I really wanted to hear everyone . For three of us, perfect.

Awesome experience at ABC Kitchen! We were a little early for our booking but the were able to squeeze us right in. We had a delicious cocktail to start then began with the calamari (excellent) and then the sausage and kale pizza (fantastic!). From there she had the roasted carrots and avocado salad and I devoured the turkey sandwich! Avery thing was delicious, the service was spot on and the decor/atmosphere was excellent. See you next time!!

Food was excellent and the space is beautiful. Our waitress however seemed as if we were inconveniencing her when we asked her questions about the menu and while ordering. After spending several hundreds of dollars on lunch, she pushed up her sleeve to look at her watch when we asked to order dessert.

Our waiter was not as attentive as we would have hoped. He was more interested in his table of 8 versus our table of 2. The food was amazing. However, when we ordered dessert with coffee - the dessert arrived but not the coffee. Ultimately a mgr happened by and when he heard of our issue it was immediately corrected (and the coffee taken off the bill). Unfortunately our waiter then came with the check and blamed another person for the coffee not being served. He would have been better served to simply say he was sorry. While this will not affect my return to ABC - the waiter should learn to simply say "I am sorry for the oversight".
