"Hi there, it's chef Alex Garcia. In my kitchen there are no borders just fun delicious food made from the best ingredients I can get my oven mits on! As a native Cuban I grew-up appreciating the simple joys of food and conviviality centered around the family table, so here at AG Kitchen you'll find the food I enjoy cooking and eating with my friends and family. It's my take on American and Latin classic comfort food. There's my signature ceviches, and other starters and salads, a collection of burgers done my way, a delicious take on Roasted Chicken served Brazilian style, plus a paella style dish for 1 or more and mix and match surf and turf. It's always a dinner party at A.G. Kitchen.

Used to come here often and the food was delicious. However the food tonight was absolutely terrible. And I ordered a peanut bourbon drink and they were out of the bourbon so the bartender took it upon herself to serve me a whiskey sour without mentioning it. When I asked the waiter he figured out the situation and didn’t charge me the drink. Service was great but doesn’t make up for awful food and terrible judgement in the bartender. Will not be returning.

Food was good, but we had the smallest margaritas I had ever seen! They were $7.50 and were four normal sips and they were gone! Spoke to manger who apologized and said"I don't own the restaurant but I understand!"

My girlfriend and I went for a drink and dinner after seeing a movie. Other than the high noise level, it was great. The guacamole is so fresh, made to order, the tap beer selection is excellent, the prices are very fair and our waiter was lovely. I would definitely go back.

We’ve been here several times when visiting NYC - love the guacamole trio! Wait staff are always friendly, but this visit they were slow with service and one of our guests had to leave with food wrapped to take with him and he had been there for an hour.

Excellent food, relaxed ambiance, amazing guacamole made to order, and the friendliest, most accommodating staff in NYC. Reserve the lounge area for a midsize group gathering.

Want a good burger? This is a place. But if you order the salmon salad, expect some lettuce, a piece of salmon the size of a credit card and a $22 charge. Frenetic and noisy with tables on top of each other. We came for dinner on Friday night with friends and could barely hear each other. The couple next to us were so close they would have heard every word of our conversation except for all the noise at every other table.

The staff at AG Kitchen are great--very kind, willing to split checks, and happy to make recommendations. The food, though, wasn't spectacular--my fish tacos were room temperature--and it was a bit too expensive for what it is. The margarita was very good. Thanks!

Food was very good, but service was terrible. Spent 3 hours at the restaurant and it wasn't even busy. Food was very good (and hot) when it finally came but not good enough for redemption.

Been here twice. Both times the food was great but the waitstaff, although friendly and earnest, need some training and need some help. Hard to flag them down, they don't get orders right and when you tell them you asked for lemon in your weiss bier instead of orange after it arrives with orange, our waiter schooled us that they are customarily served with orange slices... which is not true in Europe or the German restaurants in town and it really didn't matter because that is not what was ordered. The mains arrived minutes after the appetizer so we had to shove the appetizer aside. Once the plates were delivered, no one checked back to take them away once we were done and we sat with dirty plates for 15 minutes. Then had to ask two other servers to have our waiter bring the bill.

Love the food, the place is attractive and has a good vibe but they need to fix the service big time.

The menu was full of wonderfully tempting Cuban and Carribean-oriented dishes - it was hard to choose what to eat. And the food (A Cubano sandwich and salad) was excellent. BUT the service was laughable. After bringing our drinks, the waiter forgot to take our order for almost half an hour (we were talking so forgot ourselves - then began to wonder what was taking the kitchen so long - and realized we hadn't even ordered!), then he brought my companion's food but not mine. After a while, I asked where mine was. He'd forgotten. Nevertheless, he was very agreeable and pleasant. And the food was terrific.

What a disappointment...we ordered breakfast before the rush and then watched as all of the people who came in after us get their food while we waited and waited. When the food finally arrived the presentation left a lot to be desired...the plates were too small, eggs runny and the bread was a sorry excuse for toast.

We loved this place we ate there twice in a weekend. The Guacamole is awesome. The breakfast tacos for two, were great (see photo). The food is very reasonable in price. We will continue to make it a local favorite of ours. On previous visits, the kids have enjoyed the burgers and the other wonderful kids meal options.

Haven’t been here in awhile and it was as good as we remembered. Fun drinks selection, great food options, burgers to appy’s, house made guacamole. We love the tacos (choose one of each flavor!), bacon-wrapped dates, special house-roasted chicken, and oh... the churros...!!!

We love AG but we have found in the last two times we were there that the food and service were quite slow - despite the place being only half full. Please add servers or kitchen staff (if needed) and get back to the (normal) speed of service and food we grew used to.

AG kitchen is normally a solid choice but I probably won’t go back for brunch. They sat me and a first date in the lounge even though I had a reservation. The servers were fantastic when my date was 20 minutes late even though I could tell they were annoyed with her. French toast was decent but nothing special. Recommend for dinner or happy hour.

Very disappointing. Drinks were terrible- sangria overly sweet, didn't seem to have actual alcohol in it. Margarita tasted like Limeade- truly gross. Food was disappointing too, particularly the paella (mushy, poor flavor), and the ceviche, which wasn't true ceviche as advertised but was basically a bunch of cooked shrimp drenched in what tasted like pineapple salsa out of a can. The guacamole was tasty but cilantro-heavy. Basically won't be coming back here.
