We had a great meal and the service was pretty good until the server announced he was finished for the day just as we were ordering dessert! The person who took over from him was run off her feet and didn’t have time to attend to us. We had to ask for the check and then track her down to pay. Disappointing end to an otherwise lovely evening

The food was delicious. I had the flatbread with mushrooms and fettuccine with Brussels as my main. My daughter had the sea bass. Absolutely delightful

I had the sea bass. It was the best piece of fish I have ever had. My mixed drink, a margarita, was perfect. We had the home made ricotta as a starter. It was divine. We will be back.

Lunch disappointed. A fly popped lazily out of the kale salad. We trapped it under a bread plate and called a server over. He killed it and took it away but failed to return to wipe the table. We waited. Ten minutes. The second course failed to arrive. It was busy. Finally we flagged down our waiter. He alerted the manager. I asked to move tables. Fine. This was incredibly painful and unpleasantly amateurish for a restaurant let alone a top choice with high (!) prices. Afterward I tried to remember all the old jokes about “Waiter, there’s a fly in my soup.”

We went for lunch on Sunday, I had the turkey sandwich and fries, the fries were a little salty but very good. My daughter had an interesting pizza with shaved Brussels sprouts and she really enjoyed that. The reason for 4, not 5 stars was my husband’s eggs Benedict—-very undercooked and not very appetizing to him. I love their vodka thyme lemonade but the price has reached $16 for a rather small glass. Overall we love this restaurant and will return and recommend it to others!

I’d never been to ABC Kitchen and relied on an excellent review in TimeOut NY. I’m very glad I did. Even for this jaded NY’er, ABC Kitchen was exceptional. I can’t recsll a time when all 4 diners raved about their selections. Pricey? Yes. Worth it? YES!!!

This place was great!! I took my mother here during our trip to NY and it did not disappoint. My mom is getting up there in years so I'm always looking to find things to do with her that are memorable and things that will impress her! This restaurant did just that.

My mother got the Fettuccine with Pesto, and she couldn't believe how FRESH it tasted. I know it's a farm to table place, but WOW! The flavors of every herb were so prominent and the aroma was amazing. I had the ricotta ravioli and the above description fits this dish perfectly too.

We also each had the Smoked Sea Salt Butter Nut Squash Soup, and it was just heavenly. My mom really enjoyed herself. I'd love to come back some day and try more things on the menu!

Our waitress was outstanding as was the service. Kind of amazing. 2/3 of the food was also outstanding and one third very good. Squash toast, butternut squash soup and sea bass were perfect. Our waitress’s name was Summer. She was awesome.
Table and chairs and huge space left me a little cold.
It was an anniversary of our first date and everyone made a sweet and wonderful note of that. Really nice.

lucky you to have built up your business but for me much to noisy, expensive; the pizza was like nothing, litle flavor and without the crust , the topic would have amounted to a tablespoon.
Sorry and soo expensive.

First time there, very low key entrance, good vibe, mixed crowd dwindling down,
perfect for a late lunch during Restaurant Week.My big disappointment was the meager selection and actual choices on the Restaurant Week menu. If the restaurant participates I would think it would like to show off a little. Of course there was a salmon dish, a portobello
mushroom sandwich and a third forgettable entre choice. My wife chose the salmon, I opted for a burger and fries. Fries exceptional, burger acceptable. All in all I felt let down. I would suspect ordering from the regular menu would bring different responses.

 (Vancouver)·Dined on February 7, 2018

Food was ok, nothing to rave about. Had the liver toast (good, but overpriced); raw fluke (too much salt /citrus, and too many competing flavours), and the fettuccini (tasty, but too much pesto / sauce and left a weird aftertaste). Wasn’t awful, but for the price and reputation, it was “meh”. Service was good
