After five years in business, ABC Kitchen is still pretty. But after a recent change in chef, the food is just pretty good.
Great food and excellent service more than compensated the random metallic banging noises from the HVAC system.
This is one of famous place in New York where is always full, so I expected much better experience but to be honest, it's not worth for. Despite our reservation, we had to wait 15 minutes at the reception before being seated, waiter didn't come forever, even a cup of coffee took more that 20 minutes to come. Food is just average, not bad but not specially good. There are many places with much better service and food in Manhattan. Never come back again, and never recommend to anyone.
Our waiter William could of been more welcoming. He seemed like he didn’t want to b here as if we were a burden to him. Didn’t even offer us the dessert menu because he wanted to rush us out of there. Although the overall experience was excellent the William damped our night a little.
Amazing food! We loved the crab toast — even ordered a second round! We had the pork confit and hake...both delicious.
The food was Devine and our waitress, Caroline was extremely helpful. We had a lovely experience and I’m full.
Waited 30 minutes for table with reservation and an hour for food.
This place is one of my favorites restaurants in NYC . But the only problem is noise level. It is too loud. Just too loud. Also, sometime I have to wait even I made a reservation.
Fried Chicken is heavenly.
Very individually styled dining room but absolutely lovely. Wonderful food, atmosphere and service.
Loved it all!
Our food was pretty good except the margherita pizza. The pizza was overcooked so we couldn’t eat almost the half. Otherwise, the food was good. We ordered 2 lobsters and it was really good.
However, my server was so rude.
Her name was Jennifer K. When we were ordering, we kind of took long to order. We couldn’t see the letters on the menu because the lights were dimmed. It took some time to order 11 dishes. She was like hurrying us to order. I was very irritated by that. Also, I ordered salted caramel ice cream, but when it was served, i realized that it was sundae not ice cream. I asked her to change and said sorry. However, she seemed so mad and she didn’t even say it’s okay. She just took the ice cream with annoyed face.
It’s not my first time going to this restaurant and I’ve never seen a rude server like her. Next time, I hope she changes her attitude. If not, I hope she never serves again. I‘ll ask the manager to not let her serve for us next time. She was the worst server ever.
Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly.
I’m sorry, I’m not one to complain but the service was unreasonably slow, waiting almost 30 minutes for sea bass and a hamburger. Upon paying the bill, I had to ask 3 times for Simone to find our waiter as it was a fifteen minute wait for $8 change. We were so very looking forward to a wonderful lunch, and we left irritated and late to where we were expected after lunch.
Great. Loved it. Great waiter - Summer.
What a gem! ABC Kitchen has amazing ambience, with a large candle lit room for dining. Service was excellent and the food even better. Be sure to save room for dessert as the selections delicious as well.
Waited 35 mins for a table with our reservation
The crab toast, carrot & avocado salad, and the sea bass were all fantastic! I also love the carrotini which is a cocktail with carrot juice and vodka!
Everything was amazing food all the way to dessert and the details made it much more special for me and my wife. Thank you everything guys
Having heard how amazing ABC Kitchen is, I checked it out for Lunch on Tuesday. The Fare is pretty good, but far from top of the line. I had a Mushroom Pizza and a Cheese Burger. Both were high quality and well thought out. The thing about ABC Kitchen that really impressed me, is the Wait Staff. Happy to be there and out going. They were delightful to say the leas.
Quick bar service, impressive menu and friendly staff
My husband and I had an impromptu date night. The ambiance was nice, the food was delicious, we had a lovely evening and enjoyed every minute.
Amazing service, food, and ambience. Will definitely be going back!
Super décor et ambiance. Les plats sont très bons.
The service was friendly and the space was beautiful but the food..... Meh.
Amazing experience as always. The staff accommodated our large group with two young children. Food was fantastic. A must recommendation for anyone in NYC.
Great service. Perfect atmosphere. Yum food.
Phenomenal food! Fantastic service! And save room for dessert—the salted caramel sundae is AMAZING.
Excellent food, but portions were meager. Very cool atmosphere. Good for a business lunch. Waiter seemed rushed.
Nice menu selection at lunch. We did a mix & match with the price fixe choices & did some sharing. The waiter was very nice about it & it was delicious. High noise level, even at lunchtime.
great place, food imaginative and atmosphere fun and the shopping superb
I’ve been waiting to try ABC kitchen for a long time, and it was REALLY worth the wait! It was very busy which wasn’t surprising due to the difficulty securing a reservation (clearly very popular). We needed to wait a half hour to be seated but our server and the food totally made up for it. We were also given an extra appetizer on the house as a show of gratitude for our patience to be seated, which was totally unnecessary but much appreciated because like everything else it was delicious! Will absolutely recommend this and hope to visit again soon.
ABC is simply awesome! The staff is amazing, kind and makes you feel welcome and cared for! The restaurant manager is simply adorable. The barman is nice, knowledgeable and very patient! The food is insanely good, fresh, vibrant!! I would go back in a heartbeat
One of the best restaurants in NYC!
Food was great, reasonably priced, the space was beautiful, and lots of great options across the menu to choose from!
Food was fantastic. Good ambience and quality wine list.
However, pasta I ordered was overcooked and couldn't enjoy it.
Except that all the dishes I ordered was perfectly cooked and fried.
I would recommend Hake. Crispy crust, well cooked middle and sweet and bitter sauce went well with the fish.
We had a very good meal as always but the service was very poor.
Wait for the table was minimal.
Everyone was friendly and accommodating.
Food was great, but overpriced (expected in NYC). We were in for a day trip to the city and decided to check this place out. Apps were great - especially the kabocha squash toast! I had the tempura-fried chicken with collard greens which was awesome. Server was attentive, friendly and helpful. We had two young kids with us and they shared the basic pizza. Would go again, just not too often ($$).
Highly recommend ABC Kitchen. The food was fantastic with a wide selection of menu items. Our service was exceptional, the atmosphere was tastefully done with plenty of space between tables.
