After five years in business, ABC Kitchen is still pretty. But after a recent change in chef, the food is just pretty good.
Everything we ate was amazing! The food and atmosphere were perfect! My GF could of been happier for her 30th.
Too much seasoning, fish was too salty and spicy, dessert was too sweet
Very good food with an surprising touch
Staff was very friendly and helpful
We hadn't eaten here for a while and I have to say I was disappointed with the food. It was mediocre.
The location is a little hard to find if you are not from the area. Nice quiet ambiance, small portion size meals. I am not sure I would take younger children here. Small variety of meal choices. I ordered the fettucine pasta [would recommend] full of flavor and pasta with sausage [would not recommend due to the sausage overpowering the meal]. I did not order dessert, but I did see many other did.
Wonderful experience as always. The food, location and ambiance are great for a friendly get together. The salt carmel sundae was delicious!
Rustic ambiance with a touch of elegance. Like always Jean-Georges creativity will amaze you.
I love the food and atmosphere but it’s way too loud
Love this place but cannot stand their habit of hiring/ training snotty greeters. The food is still gorgeous and amazing. Always a sundae for the table. Once you get past the door.. the table staff is always amazing. It’s a strange thing if you can get over it .. well worth the snark..
Excellent as always. Food amazing. Great crowd.
Another delicious lunch at abc
Everything was fantastic except the asparagus/prosciutto pizza. It had zero (!) prosciutto and an overwhelming asparagus flavor. The server, Emily, was absolutely amazing and took the pizza off of our bill- overall an amazing dinner and perfect service. Highly
Good food and ambience but quite loudly. The acoustic is really bad.
I had been here several times but not for about 5 years. I was not disappointed! If anything, the food is even better than on my last visit. Additionally, I was alone and appreciated the attention of my server and bus person. I had a roasted carrot/avocado salad that was uniquely delicious and a fettucine/pesto main course (they offer smaller sizes of pasta, which is important to me) which was superb. I can't recommend ABC Kitchen strongly enough.
One of the best spots in NYC! Hard to have a bad time/meal here.
Outstanding food and service in a wonderful environment! Can't wait to go back.
The food and service are quite good. Overall, we enjoyed out meal. Unfortunately, the restaurant is so loud that we couldn't hear each other at a table for four.
All the food at ABC was fantastic. Pastas were fresh and flavorful and the Seabass was amazing. Service was awful. We had to get up and walk to wine chiller in corner to refill our glass. They never once refilled our glass. They also never asked how food was or if we needed anything. Food was great and would maybe give it a second try and hope for different server!!
The food was fabulous and the service was friendly and professional. This is a really beautiful restaurant. The only negative is that the noise level is extremely high. It was a little tough having conversation with our dinner guests. But, we would definitely return because the food is so good.
We went here for lunch and thought everything was tasty!
The place has been consistently good. Food quality/taste and service have been always consistent. Great selection and variation of food. Had the vege burger in Pita bread. There menu has changed for Appetizer options but would definitely like to have the Kamboucha back. Highly recommended.
Had brunch with my mom and it was absolutely delicious. My favorite place in NYC! The only complaint is that it was way too loud and had no access to WiFi/ internet. Other than that, perfecto!
The service is unparalleled and the quality of cocktails, wine and food is outstanding. The ambiance is special. Thank you for another enjoyable and special dining experience.
Fantastically fresh food. From the tomato toast to the sea bass and everything else’s we had. It was well prepared and extremely fresh. Quite dark at our table and a bit load but energetically so.
ABC Kitchen serves very good food. This is our second visit and we will visit again in August. I have a few comments but will send them to the restaurant because they don't reflect badly on the restaurant - they are just personal.
We were celebrating Father's Day a bit early. The food was yummy, the service was pleasant and efficient. The restaurant said they serve brunch until 3PM. Our reservation was at 3 PM. They turned off the lights at 4:30 PM. That was very un-customer-friendly. I would definitely go back.
Great Experience!! The food was amazing and the service impeccable!
Lovely dinner to celebrate graduating a Masters Program. Food was delicious, definitely felt special!!
We went to ABC Kitchen on a Friday night. Upon being seated we were greeted by our server and he took our cocktail order. Before our drinks even came our server wanted to know our order IN FULL. Truthfully, we were still admiring the restaurant (which was stunning) so we hadn't looked at the menu yet but we got the impression right away that he wanted to rush us out. When he returned, we gave him our appetizer order but he persisted in wanting our full order saying, "the chef prefers it that way." Reluctantly, we complied. Our appetizer arrived before our cocktails. We ate 2 bites when our next course arrived. Then came the cocktails. We ate 2 bites and our main course arrived. We had so much food on our table and no time to enjoy it. We switched from appetizer to pizza to pork confit just so we could taste all of it while it was still hot. While the atmosphere was wonderful and the food was tasty, our server ruined the dining experience. If you go, try to slow the pace down so you can enjoy your evening!
The back room is somewhat quieter than the main front room where conversation is almost impossible.
ABC never disappoints.
We are from UK abc was visiting NY city . We were recommended to use ABC . It was amazing
Must've had an off night because service was really spotty: Clueless hostess, waiter who was asked three times for butter and didn't deliver, and then someone parked a giant baby stroller literally 2 inches from our table. We insisted on moving at that point. A manager type comped us some wine to make up for the hassles, which helped a little. It's too bad, because I can see how it might be a great place for a meal.
ABC Kitchen is always consistent - the food is very good, ambience is nice, wait staff are really personable - always an enjoyable evening.
Reservations right on time - a plus. Restaurant ridiculously loud. Food was good not amazing as I thought; portions small For the prices. Fair-good experience.
our server Marjorie went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. The food was so delicious that we returned the day after our lunch for a dinner!
The experience overall was great. However, we made a reservation for 8pm and our table wasn’t ready until about 8:20pm, which was a little frustrating. The service and food did make up for it though!
The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. We enjoyed several of the vegetable appetizers as well as the calamari. The appetizer portions were small but they were extremely tasty. For entrées the fried chicken was amazing as was the fish of the day and a pizza. The desserts were phenomenal. It was an expensive night out —$300+ for four people with one drink for three people, plus appetizers, entrées, and three desserts.
