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.

Painfully expensive for ridiculously small portions. Ordered the hangar steak received a pathetic portion.

My friend who lives in this neighborhood first took me here. I have been back a few times, and just chose it for a special night out w my niece. What else can I say? It's become my not-my-neighborhood neighborhood spot! Really always have a nice experience here.

Cookshop is one of our family’s favorite restaurants and my daughter picked it for her birthday dinner. And while everything was fine, we were all disappointed we didn’t have the wonderful experience we are used to. The restaurant was very dark, service was very so so, and most disappointingly, nothing we ordered was above average. We’ll give it another try but without the unreserved enthusiasm we usually bring.

The food was inconsistent. The appetizers, soup and salads we ordered were all very good and worth returning for but the fish entrees were over cooked and the shell fish was tough. This shouldn't happen at a restaurant at this price level.

I always come here for NYE , dinner was delicious, however we ordered the Duck and it was so so hard to cut and stiff. We told our waiter and he just laughed and pretended that it was a joke.
I understand that NYE is a busy night but I wish the waiter was more attentive.

Anyways the other dishes were great I highly recommend the chiken and the candy bars from the dessert menu.

Every time I visit NYC, I have to eat at Cookshop.
The restaurant has been a staple of mine for over 15 years.
The service is always on point, the quality of the food is fantastic and there seems to always be a happy buzz in the air.
I love it!

I live in Chelsea and always recommend Cookshop to visiting guests. The food and service are consistently excellent. We had a reservation so there was no waiting and though crowded, the noise level wasn't bad. Unfortunately, I was too full at the end of the meal to order dessert. A while back I had the best dessert of my life here!

From the moment you walk into Cookshop you can smell the delicious flavors of their carefully crafted meals. I went for brunch and ordered the Huevos Rancheros. They were made exactly how I requested and tasted absolutely amazing. It was the perfect amount of egg, cheese, beans and salsa. Based on the dish's richness, I could tell that they use the freshest, quality ingredients. I would definitely recommend it.
