The dumb people at Opentable who sent me an email saying the Bespoke Kitchen is permanently closed and then proceeded to inundate me with emails about the time of my reservation and to review the restaurant. This was after I sent them an email stating the above that they originally sent me. So the review on OpenTable is poor for Opentable it's self .

The service was pretty bad. I don't know if it was the trend and intentional attitude of the place, but literally everyone does not smile or try to provide good service. The Mary's Walk Of Shame we ordered came with 3 raw sausages. When we complained and showed our waitress she asked if it was cold. What a thing to ask!! Not only was it cold, but you could see that it was raw!!!!

The food was not good, they served us everything cold and made a mistake on our order. Clearly everything was premade and very low quality. They ran out of most dishes and we had to choose what was left. Overall really bad, would not go back.

Food was great, love the concept and it is extremely well executed. Our waiter was friendly and service was good overall. Only downside is that the space is devoid of atmosphere and way too loud. It was the worst possible seating/ eating arrangement - music was at an intrusive volume level and we were a table of two sitting maybe 1 foot away from another table of two-- between being so close to the next table and the music we could barely hear each other speak. It was pretty uncomfortable and probably wouldn't go back for that reason, but the chef was great and we enjoyed the food.

While a little pricey, the food is worth it. The best halibut, I've had in years. And the staff and management are incredibly accommodating. A real asset to West Village ambience

A very unique dining concept that allows the chef to impress you with his skills. The bacon dumplings were so tasty, burrata with kale pesto will change someone that is not a kale fan. For entrees we went with fish and gave the chef two different styles/options and both dishes were perfect.

For desert... A burrata? Yes... Light, fresh and amazing.

Brunch here is decent, but the service is very slow and the paprika potatoes are too greasy. The short rib Benedict on its own is delish though!

Nice concept, but way over priced!! We were charged for a barnzino fish, made very simple, no special flavours ( similar to what I would serve in a dinner) 31$. So, if you are up to spend 30-35$ for a main course, l would go somewhere else.

Awesome concept, executed very well. My girlfriend has some significant food allergies and restrictions and they were very sensitive to that. The food tasted so good we had to ask multiple times to ensure there was nothing in it she could not have. My rib-eye (light) was such an amazing combination of flavors. The total cost including wine was not inexpensive, but the quality of the food was well worth it. We would return.

Love the concept of the restaurant, the food was beautifully plated and perfectly cooked. I got the duck and it was perfectly medium with crispy skin, the branzino my friend received as the chefs choice was perfectly cooked as well. Don't forget to eat the veggies that come with the dishes, the sides were incredibly fresh and seasonal.

This was my second time coming to this restaurant, one with a friend and second with a date. Both times have been exceptional. The different flavors blended together by the chef is exquisite. The option for chefs choice and giving the chef full creativity is brilliant. All the staff in the restaurant is exceptional and will certainly be returning.

We chose this place because it was close to where my son works and used Yelp. It was highly rated by previous customers and they were absolutely right. The ambiance was relaxed, the place was dimly lit but not too dark. We sat at the back room where the kitchen is, I thought it was a treat to see the chefs do their work. The entrees were bigger than we expected! We all ordered something different so we can taste each other's dishes. They were superb! We will go back again.

I recommend choosing the Chef's Selection. It was a little bit of a wait for the food but there was something intriguing about not knowing what I was getting. I ended up with the Branzino and it was delicious. My friend was served the Duck and she really enjoyed it as well. Get the cheesecake for dessert. They also made the best Espresso Martini I've ever had.

Returned to Bespoke Kitchen for their brunch. Thankfully, the hostess was able to seat us in the back room by the kitchen. Narrow front room was thunderously, uncomfortably loud. Gravlax plate was good, but we waited a long time for service and refills on the bottomless brunch were slow in coming. Not sure I'll be back here soon...

The food was pretty good. The hostess was absolutely horrible. My fiancé and I (black, Caribbean couple) came in the door, stood there for 3-5 minutes and watched her walk back and forth without speaking to us or attempting to seat us. It wasn't until another couple (Caucasian) came in and she seated them immediately. I had to call over the bartender to get us seated...
I then asked the hostess several times while we were waiting to be seated if she didn't see us standing here. She answered as if she was perplexed ALL THREE TIMES. I didn't want to leave because we were on a tight schedule and had just gotten engaged. I wouldn't ever come back here again or recommend it to anyone (whatever hue they are). To the manager, please hire someone that can do the actual job description.
