Chalk Point Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Great food and great atmosphere! Service was awesome too, they were on top of our requests and friendly. A little pricey but in NY, that’s what I’d expect. Only odd thing was that the white wine we ordered wasn’t chilled but that was probably a one off. Would definitely go back!
I have been to Chalk Point many times and it seems to have gone downhill. The food is overall still good (though the pickles are limp and not as tasty), but the service was pretty bad. Forgot to place one of our party's order (there were only four of us), brought out the wrong dessert, was hard to flag down when you needed him. Water boys and other staff were great though. Wish them well for a needed turn back to goodness.
To start with, the service absolutely sucks. Our party of four convened for our 2:00 brunch reservation at exactly 2:00, which was after I had let the host know that half of the party was there about ten minutes prior. We got the expected “just a few minutes” when I notified him that our entire party was there, which is fine, and then proceeded to wait for half an hour to be seated. Being that there’s literally nowhere to sit or even stand while you wait except for the narrow vestibule where you enter the restaurant, one couldn’t help overhearing other parties who were in the same boat — on time for their reservation yet not being seated on time or close to it. It all begs the question of what exactly the point is in making a reservation if it doesn’t in fact matter in the end and you wind up waiting as if you had no reservation in the first place.
After finally being seated we were immediately ready to order drinks if nothing else, but waited another ten minutes for a member of the waitstaff to come to our table, adding to our annoyance. Then we ordered and received our drinks, and the Bloody Marys can only be described as V8 with a garnish. There was no discernible vodka, no discernible horseradish, nothing that would make one think they were drinking a Bloody Mary. Obviously we questioned this and the waitress took them back to the bar to try fixing them but, like, come on. If you’ve screwed up a drink that is a standard on most menus, there’s a problem. Then we get to the food. The orange and ricotta toast was delicious, at least. Can’t really say the same for the rest of it. Frankly, most greasy spoons would’ve put the chorizo hash I ordered to shame. All in all it was a huge disappointment and proof that hype is, most of the time, not worth listening to.
Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting NYC. Chalk Point Kitchen has been on my list of places to try for a while and I am so thrilled I got to experience it. This little hole in the wall will make you forget all about the noise and bustle that is NYC. Sometimes, it’s nice to feel like you can get away from it all. We went during the week so I’m not so sure how busy they get on the weekend.
They have a wide array of cocktails to choose from. The menus are seasonal but I can assure you the Cauliflower Flatbread we ordered as a starter was scrumptious. We also ordered the Vegan Caesar, the Half Chicken and for dessert - the Devils Food Cake. DELISH!!
Will be coming back next time I’m in town!
We were seated an hour after our reservation. The dining room had many available tables. Although we were a few minutes late, I️ will admit, we were told it would be a 15 minutes wait and to have a seat at the downstairs bar. 30 minutes later we took it upon ourselves to ask the hostess when our table would be ready. There were still many available tables in the dining room. Despsite the availability we were not seated for another 20-30 minutes. Food was average at best but disappointed in the wait time.
Chalk Point Kitchen never disappoints. This place was recommended by a friend last year and we immediately fell in love. Fresh ingredients and wonderful drinks. Staff is cool and welcoming. Seating is a tiny bit uncomfortable but if you're sitting on the booth side then you should have no issues.
This restaurant was quaint, with a rustic, farmhouse type décor. The menu had a limited selection. All items are a la carte, so with already pricey entrees, the meal can add up quickly. The rack of lamb was delicious. The service was good. However, when I ordered a beer (of which there were only 4 or 5 on the menu), the waitress informed me they did not have any beer that night. She came back later with one option. The ambiance was nice, except for the hip hop music playing when we arrived and throughout most of our dinner. The music did not seem to go with the décor. So, while I liked the food a lot, I'd be hesitant to go back here.
If you hate great food, friendly people and cozy atmospheres, this place is not for you. Everything from the service to what is served is perfection. The menu is switched out seasonally -which is apparent based on how fresh all the ingredients are and is great for all types of diets (vegetarians and carnivores alike). It's trendy with none of the pretention that can go along with that. First came to this restaurant for the menu, came back for the amazing staff...and the menu...also the drinks.
Chalk Point greets you with a beautiful rustic setting on Broome Street that is instantly very relaxing and surprisingly peaceful in the heart of NYC. Much like most people these days my girlfriend and I enjoy good food that is also health and organically conscious. So the sustainable sourced menu was much appreciated and provides enough variety to appeal to everyone. Our bunch on 9/23 was excellent - we highly recommend the Matcha Matcha cocktail and the Avocado Hash, both absolutely fantastic. The service here is additionally superb. We definitely enjoyed the relaxed, casual, and fun mood - the perfect brunch spot to kick off a beautiful Saturday morning! We are very happy we found Chalk Point and will definitely go back the next time we visit NYC.
Very rarely am I compelled to give negative feedback, however this place is offensive on so many levels.
Arrive to an empty restaurant 15 minutes before reservation time on a TUESDAY (again please note the restaurant was empty) - and was told I'm early, and suggested to go downstairs to the 'really cool bar' - albeit the bar had ambience, but that too was EMPTY, and the $20 drink (before tip) left much to be desired...
Return upstairs to the host (having decided to check the negative vibes from the drink at the stair) to a lacking dinner - with the exception of the burrata, the meal at best was adequate... which is absurd given a $170 bill (the meal was 1 starter, 1 salad, 1 chicken, 2 sides, for $170 - no alcohol included)...
All of this was dismissable, UNTIL, in addition to the outlandish price tag, this restaurant charges an 'operation fee' --- what is an operation fee? (I had to ask the host/manager, not the poor server) - who responded, 'it's added to cover the cost of increased wages and using locally sourced food' to which I replied, 'you should build that into your pricing, bc what you just described is a fee for the cost of doing business, and it's misleading customers and impacting service gratuity'
Please note, I have never worked in the service industry, so this isn't my bone to pick - however - if you're going to market yourself as farm to table, locally sourced, and already have the price attached to the menu, adding a 5% 'operation fee' is wrong on SO many levels.
For service, I actually would give a 5 star to our waitress, but a 1 star for the host. We had a reservation and there was no host at the podium for about 10-15 minutes; its the longest I've ever waited to be checked in or even acknowledged. Menu --- drinks, food -- very busy and lots of fresh, farm to table ingredients, but seems thrown together and relatively mediocre. Food was stuff that could probably be made at home, especially for the asking price of the food. Unless you want to be in a relatively 'hot spot' (lots of models hanging out, but it is fashion week) area and are going to the liquor speakeasy next door, not worth the trip. Lots of potential, but let down.
This place has really gone downhill. The menu is really limiting in the restaurant (vs what you can order online / Uber eats). I used to like it for healthy, fresh dinner options. But they wont let you add any protein options to small veggie salads (when you can do this when you order take out Or delivery) and all the entrees are super heavy now. Really limiting. Will not return.
Our dinner at Chalk Point Kitchen was one of the best we've had in a long time. We found the cuisine to be fresh and innovative. The lobster tacos and the rack of lamb were exquisite, and the spicy watermelon margarita was the most creative and best margarita I've had. The only weak point was the devils food cake dessert. We will definitely return to this restaurant the next time we are in SoHO.
I have a lot of food allergies and am still able to find plenty of delicious options. Chalk Point Kitchen is experimental with their refreshing drinks and their menu is chalk-full of so many enticing dinner options that is hard to choose just one. The servers and bartenders are incredibly friendly, engaging and enjoyable to talk to, which only makes for the perfect dining experience.
