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.

Fantastic Monday lunch. Swordfish was wonderfully moist. Service was friendly and efficient, with no attitude about the fact that my friend was late and we also were in a hurry. All went off perfectly. Apple margarita was also delicious.

Impromptu dinner at Cookshop turned out to be one of the more memorable restaurant trips of 2018. Despite my open distaste for tapas restaurants decided to forego entrees in favor of an amalgam of six appetizers. Turned out to be extremely delicious, just the right amount of food, and came out to $40 per person. I highly recommend Cookshop.

Cookshop was a great choice for brunch. As someone aging out of the "brunch isn't brunch without bottomless mimosas" bracket, I found it to be a really nice medium. Very lively but not overrun with college kids looking for a liquid brunch, good food, not overly precious. We stuck to coffee this time around but the drink selection looked good. It's pretty loud in there, so it probably wouldn't be the spot to bring your grandmother but it would be perfect for a casual brunch with friends.

The only real negative I found was how slow the service was. We waited 20 minutes for coffee and considerably longer for our food.

Cookshop is just too loud. The food is quite reliable, but the music was deafening, and the level of other ambiant noise was just awful. I couldn't hear the friend with whom I was dining from across the table at all. Being outside in Times Square is peaceful compared to this place.

it was a very nice brunch, but i think they needed more runners or waiters.
the wait time to get coffee, check and anything else we may have wanted was very long.
the waiter never had a chance to come and ask if we needed anything once the meal arrived.
Still one of my favorite places.

THE WORST FOOD IN NYC! Everything taste only GARLIC! They need to change the Chef! You can only taste the garlic in that place! The turkey burger is beyond horrible! The potatoes is basically garlic, the chicken taste just garlic!

The food and menu choices were mediocre: nothing special, but executed well. The waiter really acted like he was doing us a favor by taking our order, and like he was too good to be serving. The atmosphere on the patio, where we sat, was lovely. The hostesses and bussers were very polite and attentive. I was very glad we didn't sit inside: the noise was intense.

Our meal was great -- much better than I expected given past experiences. But our table in the back was poorly situated. Basically we were in the middle of a server traffic jam. We should have asked for another but we were already settled in by the time we realized we were sitting in Grand Central.

Cookshop was a nice surprise. Excellent service from when I walked in through the whole meal. They sat me (on a busy Saturday) even though my dinner date was running late. I did have a reservation. Everyone was in a good mood from the hostess to the bus boys. Our waitress was top notch. Food was exceptional. We both had the scollops and shared the bruscetta as an app. So tasty. It is a little pricey but you really do get what you pay for here in terms of food and service. It located in a hot area right now (west chelsea) so one expects a little attitude, but not here. Treat yourself. Head out to Cookshop.
