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.
Bad food bad drinks not too clean unbearably noisy
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!
Great. Neighborhood spot.
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.
Always fun, food always delicious. Attentive service!
Second time here. Very convenient to lots of other businesses on the West Side. Comfortable and very, very good service.
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.
Love this place! Great food w lots of healthy alternatives.
It took a long time for our drinks and food to come out.
We decided to stay at the bar and enjoy the Happy Hour - and the bartenders too. The Latin burger was really good - and the crab appetizer looked very good too. I will be back!
AG Kitchen was a great place for brunch after the NYRR NYC Half Marathon! Food was delicious and drinks were great, too! The staff was very nice, accommodating and attentive! :)
Servers were nice, the food was decent. A little overpriced but overall a good experience
we were a group of 6, including 2 youngsters and they made us all feel very welcome. like that the brunch menu also has lunch type items as well and there are lots of nice choices. I still stick with the fish tacos which are so goodl
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.
A.G. Kitchen is a great restaurant. Great food, great service. I was meeting friends for brunch and wanted a nice place in the neighborhood. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal!
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 come here often for date nights. They have the best cubano’s in NYC, for sure! And such a lovely ambiance :)
I love the turkey burger. It is very flavorful, juicy and nicely grilled. The service is very attentive. They made a special ice tea for me with herbal tea. I look forward to going back very soon.
Fun place with good, fun food. Tacos and burgers were very good. Drinks were a bit pricey, but that’s life in the big city.
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.
Service (Amanda) was awesome, food perfect and just all around great experience.
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.
Great Sangria - burgers were cooked as requested - silverware was dirty, but quickly replaced.
Waiter so friendly and quick. Good food so tasty.
Always great and very good service with the best menu
Server was fantastic! Great dinner sandwiches - extremely tasty and hearty. Good bar menu. Worth going
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.
Most of the food was delicious. However, my wife is a fresh tuna lover and her tuna was not that fresh. That was the only food negative, but it was significant!!
Fantastic guacamole. Great burgers. Very pleased with the meal and the service. Not too far from Lincoln Center.
We are at the bar. Avocado Toast was great! Get a side of bacon - it’s e best crispy bacon in ny.
We live in the neighborhood of AG Kitchen, and have eaten there dozens of times. This time we went with friends who spoke broken english. She wanted plain salmon with vegetables. There is one salmon dish on the menu, with sauces. I asked if she could just have the salmon plain, and then asked if it comes with vegetables, as it didn't say. We were planning to order from the side dishes otherwise. The waitress looked at me and barked "read the Menu". I showed her the menu, patiently, and said this was the only salmon dish there, and it doesn't say. To which she apologized profusely.
Too late. This was Christmas Eve. The restaurant was half empty. My husband told her we wanted another server.
Sorry, AG Kitchen, but no more visits from us, with or without guests.
Service was not great and the bar ran out of cold beer. Food for the table arrived ten minutes apart and the waiter didn't get the order right. The food isn't bad but is way over-priced for what it is. Would not eat there again.
Consistently great fresh food. Best burgers, burritos, Samba chicken. Once a week at least!
Don’t normally write reviews, but really like AG Kitchen. Food is extremely consistent (and absolutely delicious). Unfortunately, tonight is the first time I’ve been disappointed with the service. The waiter had a poor attitude each time he visited the table. When minor requests were made for food or drinks he was unpleasant and not amenable. Overall, will definitely be back, but hoping we don’t have to deal with the same waiter.
Simple, clear neighborhood mix-Mex restaurant with tasty food, good drinks and delightful service. Nothing mind blowing but the arugula salad is excellent and the Braised Short Ribs Arepa are among the best on the menu. Easy, casual, and the wait staff is very fun. It is a place to go to often, on the spur for simply good food.
Our favorite neighborhood spot
Our second visit to AG Kitchen. The quality and selection of dishes is excellent. Yes, it can be noisy, but the food and the excellent service are the attraction, and apparently, many others agree.
