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.

We went there for brunch, and the food was mediocre compared to their dinner menu. This used to be our favorite spot in the city, but sadly, the quality of the food and service has declined over the years. And this time, service was really disappointing. It ruined our experience. We had reservations but it took a while for the hostess to seat us. And then when we were finally seated, we had waited for a while before realizing not a single sever was going to come over to take our orders. We had to flag a busser to bring a server over to take our orders. It turns out that no one was assigned to our table. And the server who took our order looked royally annoyed that she had to take our orders because we weren’t in her section. She never returned to our table to see how we were doing. So anytime we needed anything we had to flag down a runner or busser. It was a subpar experience and although we used to enjoy going there over the years, I’m not sure I would return after this experience. It was time and money wasted.

Very expensive for the amount of food you get. I’m used to NYC prices, but the food was nothing special and very expensive. I’d try dining for dinner, but it’s definitely not worth it for brunch.

We were here six years’ earlier for a birthday, and it was great to come back and find the overall excellence had continued. Service was pleasant and not over the top. Emily, our server, was great with suggestions for dinner and wine. The food? OMG! Their take on fried chicken is a deconstructed Nashville Hot Chicken with very crisp skin, and Swiss chard swimming in hot honey butter. Just great! The recommended side of mashed potatos were amazing and I have to find that recipe for our mashed potatoes during the holidays.
The desserts were wonderful, with the pie crust of the apple tart shining - flaky, buttery, and perfect with the apple filling. WIne list was a great representation of several regions with some excellent selections.
It’s eclectic, energetic, and well worth the trip down.

Overall started out strong. Server super engaged at the start however as tables filled up less attentive. Food was outstanding as was the wine selections server suggested. Unfortunately a glass of wine I ordered didn’t come until my meal was almost done. I could have skipped dessert as $14 for a piece of cake that was pretty basic was underwhelming.

My only complaint was our wait! We had a reservation for 7:30PM and were not seated until 8PM. The hostess was not very polite about it, but a manager (I’m assuming) did come out and apologize and give us free glasses of champagne. The rest of the experience was amazing! Great food, and our waiter was awesome!

After being seated 10 min past our reservation time For brunch we waited 20 minutes before we flagged down a passing employee to ask if we could order. When the food arrived the calamari was very good, but the eggs Benedict had 1 very over cooked egg and the other was so runny that even the white was runny. Service was terrible even though lots of employees were running around. Such a disappointment as this is such a popular restaurant.

I've eaten here many times and ABC Kitchen is my go-to restaurant when meeting with friends who I haven't seen for a while. Food is simply delicious (we dined on salmon and skate) and our server made our meal even more memorable. He patiently allowed us to sample wines he recommended before ordering a bottle, served us at a leisurely pace so we can enjoy each other's company and brought over 2 additional chairs when friends showed up by surprise. Love ABC Kitchen and I'm always pleased to return again and again.

The restaurant vibe and atmosphere is on point and perfect for a nice dining experience. The food selection is fantastic, fresh elegance and variety of tastes. Great for small plate sharing apps and amazing entrees. Honestly, I suggest ordering a couple dishes from apps, starters to entrees because you'll want every item on the menu. Of course sharing is a personal preference and you'll enjoy it either way! And the sundae dessert with salted caramel popcorn, chocolate ice cream and melted chocolate fudge is delicious!

The portions are meager, the service is very mediocre, and the food is overpriced for its quality. To begin with, the restaurant places three pieces of bread on the table for three people, a few drops of oil in a tiny plate and a tiny plate with about 12 grains of course salt. Diners have to grovel for more bread and oil. Salads include about 8 pieces of lettuce a few pieces of radish for $18. I would never return to this restaurant.
