Food was disappointing. Brussel sprouts tasted like they were doused in vinegar, they were difficult to eat. Our shrimp appetizer and tuna entree were just ok, nothing special or that delicious. Atmosphere and service were good, though. This was our second visit to Cook Shop, so we were expecting more.

Food was on point, as always. Lucas was an excellent server. Kind and knowledgeable. There were various people who would stop by throughout the evening and want to clear the table, mainly one woman who stopped by several times. It was odd having someone who was not our server come to our table and assert herself to things that were on the table and/or engage with us in the middle of our conversation without introducing herself. We appreciated the service level but an introduction would have been nice (especially bc we knew our server). I could have done the same thing and just walked up to some persons table and cleared things off or asked if they were through with a dish but that would be weird. That was what it felt like bc she was not a busser or a runner. Maybe a manager? anyway, overall food and service were excellent. This is why I always come back and why, just as on this visit, I always bring my out of town guests here.

Cookshop is one of my favorite restaurants in the boroughs, and it has been since it opened.

There is a great deal of thought applied to every dish. Ingredients, seasonings, cooking skills, and plating are precise, exceptional, and delicious.

Shouts to those who decide these things for keeping the menu varietal without kitchen sinked. Too many restaurants today - especially those who live in the $$$ area - have trend ingredients, comfort foods, overly priced old school techniques, things that saw love on Insta and (God forbid) "Top Chef" and Food Network. When the ethos, purpose, and skills are great, there is no need to have a menu that rivals TGIFridays.

Brunch, lunch, and dinner are all excellent.

The service at Cookshop is terrific: kind, interested, and informed servers really want you to enjoy your meal because they value and love good food.

Shouts to those who run Cookshop. I miss Hundred Acres, and I'm grateful that Cookshop holds it down for brunch with the quality and warmth that Hundred Acres once did.

I always make at least one stop at Cook Shop when I’m in the city. The staff is always amazing and the food excellent. It’s the perfect place to meet up with friends and business colleagues.

We were a party of seven. Three of us have serious allergies. Our server was professional, knew her allergy facts about each dish and remembered the birthday of one of the guests without prompting.

Recommendations for food choices were excellent. We all invited the food, the casual ambiance back up by the professional and genuinely nice waitstaff.

It’s hard to entertain people from out of town the day after Thanksgiving and make them happy. Cookshop made it easy. Thanks!

The food was excellent as always. Service is top notch. The restaurant was crowded and you would have thought we were the only table-no one missed a beat. Water glasses were never empty and we didn’t have to ask for a thing!

There was a small wait for our table but nothing terrible. It was very busy but appeared to be locals rather than tourists, a sign of a good venue. The food was amazing, particularly the chicken liver mousse. I could eat that all day.

I have been to Cookshop about 15 times over the years for lunch, breakfast and dinner. It has always been a great meal along with good service and atmosphere. Tonight was the most disappointing meal I have had to date. The skate entree was bland with a fried crust that was oily and the “slaw” side was so basic without any flavor. Needless to say, I wonder if they have lost their strength? The deviled eggs were good.

The restaurant is so beautiful and cozy, but what brought this experience to the next level was our INCREDIBLE waiter Kingston. So well versed in the menu and wines, and so kind/thoughtful. Amazing restaurant with one of a kind ambience
