About AG Kitchen
"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.

AG Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
We went expecting a great burger and casual food. The burger and tacos were indeed very good, but the appetizers were very disappointing. Pork steamed buns were hard as a rock, and the empanadas were also. Calamari was soggy from the sauce dripped on top. The crab cakes were ok. I would consider going back again but would not order appetizers.
a good dining experience as always. the only concern was that in my reservation I had specifically requested a booth and when I arrived there were only 3 parties seated and they were all in the 3 booths. why don't people seating guests look at the reservations beforehand so that requests can be accommodated?
AG Kitchen has friendly, welcoming service from walking in the front door to finishing coffee and dessert. Our waiter was friendly and most importantly patient with us as we decided on drinks, apps and main course. We were never hurried or made to feel they wanted to turn the table over. We have had that happen to us at other establishments so we know the difference.
I will recommend AG Kitchen to friends who frequent the Upper West Side for shows and attractions.
I live around the block from AG Kitchen and have loved for years, but this place has gone downhill in the past 6 months. Something changed for the worse, and I have returned 3 times hoping it was just a fluke; however no more data is needed. The service is now terrible in every way (slow, inattentive, unfriendly) and the food is now sub-par (not seasoned and took too long). Even the glass of wine I ordered was sour and needed to be replaced (something I never have to do). There are literally dozens of better restaurants within a 3 block radius. Sadly, I no longer have anything good to say about this place.
I was going to a show at the Beacon Theater and used Open Table to find a spot to eat. Another great choice -- the food at AG Kitchen was excellent. I had the freshly prepared Guacamole appetizer -- which was fantastic -- great flavor and good sized portion. For my main course I opted for a Salmon filet -- which was cooked perfectly with an interesting rub. I was seated at an outside table on a great evening in NYC. Great experience and I would highly recommend it. I already have another reservation booked for later this week!!
Service was slow and not effective. Example: waitress spoke about how the empanadas had changed but she "wasn't sure how".
We said we would try them along with "tableside" guacamole.
The guacamole was not made tableside, the portion was about a 1/2 cup and it was the saltiest thing we had ever had. The empanadas never showed.
Dinner- medium burger showed up rare. Same for skirt steak.
So many other options for a simple meal in this neighborhood- opt for one of those and skip AG.
Alas, my husband got sick after eating the famed cubano sandwich (which he thought tasted a little off...). His french fries were yummy, though. The tuna in my tuna burger was cooked exactly as I'd asked, but the bun it came on was stale. My side of plantains were glued together into a single greasy glob, as if they'd been made earlier in the day and wound up sitting around. Sad.
On the plus side, our server was very friendly and efficient, and my water glass never went empty.
Sorry to experience such a downgrade of the food At AG Kitchen since its promising beginning.
I wouldn't recommend AG Kitchen. While it wasn't terrible, and while I had a decent vegetable frittata, I wouldn't go back there. The food, overall, was mediocre and the ambiance nothing special. We went for brunch, and you'd think they might have a basket of muffins or rolls, but all they offered was chips with guacamole. (and this wasn't a Mexican restaurant) When I asked for bread, our server volunteered that the chef was "lazy" and didn't make anything along those lines. The roll served with my frittata looked like half a hamburger bun. I ordered grapefruit juice which tasted more like a fruit juice cocktail that's ordinarily mixed with liquor. While they claimed it was 100% real juice, I have my doubts. The atmosphere felt a little grungy - noisy and not terribly clean.
Dinner for three in a neighborhood place. Two enjoyed their dinners - the bourbon shrimp and paella . Paella for one had generous amounts of clams, mussels, and a nice piece of lobster. The one who ordered chicken found it dry. The specialty cocktail was very good as whew the traditional martinis. The servers were efficient and personable.
Menu is not huge which is a plus in their case. Great options and super creative choices. Wish I hadn't been alone so I could order some tableside guac which looked delicious (and sounded downright dreamy with an upgrade option of pineapple and pomegranate). The guava barbecue sauce on my burger was unique and tasty, and I have been raving about the fries (topped with chimichurri) to anyone who will listen. Restaurant was quiet and cozy on a Sunday afternoon.
