What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.4

One of the few New York City restaurants you can count on for an excellent meal regardless of circumstance. Go for any meal or for a day on the patio.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Arrived early ... We were seated in the booth we requested. Sommolier (Hannah?) recommended a bottle of wine which we were left to enjoy while we celebrated our daughter's birthday... No rushing which we appreciated! We have been to Cook Shop before... Burrata and Baked Polenta Dumplings are favorites. Great service and food!

An above-average restaurant with above-average examples of pretty standard American fare. The baked chicken was juicy. The deviled eggs were spicy (in a good way). We had a nice time.

Went here before and had a great meal. Decided to come back and take my fam for a birthday celebration for my wife. Mistake. Meh.
Food was not great. (steak was tough, pizza was soggy, mussels were blah). Service was friendly but spotty in the effectiveness. Wish I hadn’t chosen here to celebrate. Won’t be returning.

Table I reserved was ready for us, and the service was attentive and courteous. The menu offered a wide variety for brunch, and my almond pancakes with lemon curd were scrumptious, and my friend enjoyed her falafel sandwich! My only complaint was the noise level. It was very loud, sometimes forcing us to raise our voices in order to talk to one another. And, the tables were too close together. But I would still recommend it!

The food is always good, interesting, fun, inventive, nicely done. But it's bedlam in there. I lost my voice trying to scream across the table at my companion. The incredibly loud music is supposed to make the place feel "fun" and hip, I guess, but the background noise forces everyone to shout and just makes it hard to have fun with the person you're with. A judgment error in so many American restaurants, unfortunately.

Cookshop never disappoints. The farm to table amazingly works year round and they keep the menu limited so that they do not over stress the kitchen. Prices keep going up, but that's pretty much every where these days. Perfect dining destination for the Atlantic Theatre.

The food and service were great. We arrived early and it was quiet enough to have a conversation. The volume of the music went up after 6 pm which in turn, made everyone shout in order to be heard over it. The noise level became too much for us.

This was my first time at Cookshop though I’ve walked by it a hundred times. From the outside, it looks like a nice, calm spot. But it was very lively and I was surprised by how loud it was inside. That being said, we were greeted so warmly and our server was fantastic. She helped me navigate the menu with my dietary restrictions, and the food was quite good. We were never rushed even though the restaurant was extremely busy, and I’d say the highlights here are the healthy menu and the stellar service.

This was the second time I went to Cookshop for brunch in the last two or three months. This time I ordered eggs, bacon and raison toast. The bacon was perfectly cooked, not too crisp, not too soft. It was incredibly flavorful. I asked for the eggs (the menu said baked) to be scrambled and they accommodated me. The eggs were a perfect balance of soft, but not runny and again flavorful. When the simple dish of bacon and eggs is done so perfectly, I'm ready to ignore the rest of the menu and just keep going back for that dish. I was so happy with it.

Fun birthday dinner with friends! Absolutely delicious. Get the Brussels Sprouts! And the Radish app. And the Burrata...it’s all delicious!!! I had perfectly prepared Arctic Char. And the Cinnamon Toast Ice Cream Sundae was huge and more than enough for three to share. Service is spectacular. Ambiance is perfect. Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.
