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.

The server was excellent and very efficient. Started with the mozzarella churros and Brussel sprouts. Both were phenomenal. My friend and I got the meat cassoulet and it was a huge portion! Big enough that I wish we split. Then we each got dessert (the oatmeal cookie and chocolate peanut butter cake. Both phenomenal. Overall meal and experience was excellent.

Great service. We called ahead to say we needed to make a show so had to be quick with lunch. The waitress came to the table and immediately made us aware she knew. Prompt and great service which gave us plenty of time to make the show. Exactly what we needed. Food was really good also!

I think there's a lot of things to like about this place - the Bloody Mary's are outstanding, the service is friendly, and the ambience is busy but inviting.

However, the food seemed to be very inconsistent in terms of price and portion. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros, which was a pretty generous portion. My partner ordered the Poach Eggs "Cilbur" which was honestly an appetizer, and almost the same price as my dish. Not only was the portion small, but it was served in a narrow, oblong bowl, which made it very difficult to eat.

It's not that we were disappointed... we just won't be rushing back. (Maybe just for the Bloody Marys!)

First of all... get a reservation... which we did. And they seated us on time. The best Bloody Marys too. Flavor , awesome flavor describes this restaurant. We had no room for dessert. The chicken was cooked like I was in France. The potatoes were amazing. When we return to NY we will go again

Sublime was our dinner. From the Raw King Mushroom Salad, to the Polenta Dumplings, to the Seafood Burger with a generous side of fennel citrus salad.
We topped it off with a trio of creamy and savory ice cream s. How could I forget to mention the ginger margaritas!
Cookshop felt different from our past visits because of the recent renovation. The acoustics were lively yet somehow felt noisier than before.
Kudos to our server Jordan - his suggestions, descriptions, and overall generous way, made us feel very much at home.
Sublime was our dinner.

Cookshop has has high-quality food that is well-prepared and generally well thought-out. Don’t expect to be able to converse easily, however, because the noise levels are very high. The chairs used to be some of the most uncomfortable around—thankfully they have recently changed those for more comfortable ones. A little thought would be helpful to lighten up the desserts.

Met an old friend and we shared a wonderful meal together. The black sea bass was fantastic. That sauce! and the burrata appetizer was to die for. Our waiter was terrific. Just attentive enough. No rushing us at all. A great experience. I'll be back!

Besides this being a great neighborhood to check out (note the Highline hotel next door) this is just a great spot to dine. The food is healthy, the staff is friendly and professional, the atmosphere is upbeat and optimistic. And I could actually hear my friend from across the table.

Cookshop should be your new go-to for Sunday brunch. The combination of a lively, yet comfortable ambiance and FRESH seasonal items makes Cookshop a perfect base for #SundayFunday. After your lovely brunch, there are so many places to go to - The High Line (1-2 blocks away), Chelsea (only 2-3 blocks away), and even the piers (2 avenues away). I've read so many good things about Cookshop, and they are all true. This is the place for a healthy, fresh brunch or dinner with creative cocktails to pair each item you indulge in. Will definitely be coming again!

I'm starting to feel like all of these "great" restaurants that you hear about are just really good marketing and OK food. Cookshop being one of them.

I'll start with the good- servers and hostess are amazing. Like another level of customer service. Thank you.

Food- blehhhhh whyyy. This is based off the Brunch Menu.

I ordered:

Egg & sausage Sandwich
fried egg, house-made breakfast sausage,
cheddar, spicy roasted jalapeno sauce,
pickles, brioche bun, potato hash // 1 6

The sausage was ok, kind of tasteless and not your typical breakfast maple syrupy sausage, it tasted like a frozen turkey burger. Jalapeno sauce? The only way I'd realize jalapeno sauce was on this sandwich is by reading the menu. Small side of potato hash and some weird salad that was basically tasteless.

Husband ordered:

PoaCHed eggs & shiitake mushrooms
porcini broth, kale, brown rice, sarvecchio // 17

In Cookships defense maybe we're supposed to realize that this is egg and mushroom soup by "broth." So that's on us. But make no mistake this is mushroom soup. Sarvacchio is parm cheese. So mushroom and egg soup with some cheese for $17.00. Yikes.

Overpriced and hyped :(

For some reason wasn’t as 4 previous visits. We had to wait for everything for quiet awhile, had to ask for bread, 2 dishes that we ordered weren’t put into the system and arrived much much later (after we asked the waitress for it) Radishes finally arrive, but without bread ... Steak that I had there twice before and was very tasty was not right this time; mostly fat and just a bad cut of meat. Couldn’t eat it.
Very much surprised. My son kept asking to go here but now....well.. you know
I really like to give good reviews and not happy about this one
