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.

We loved our food and the attentive + friendly service. Only drawback is that my ears are still ringing an hour later.

I would recommend Cookshop to all of my friends with the caveat that it's more quiet to eat outside on busy Tenth Avenue than to eat inside. Therefore, I can't go to the restaurant with several 'foodie' friends who have hearing issues. And, even for me, it's not easy to have a conversation. But I love the food and the very friendly service.

Service was on point! We only had small plates and they didn’t disappoint! Drinks a bit pricy, but tasty. Good for any day of the week!!

I love the location of this restaurant (W Chelsea) and how light and bright and pretty it is. I love that the food is seasonal and the ingredients are good quality. Many of the things seem overly salted. The hardest thing for me about it is that it is very, very, noisy. Loud music and poured concrete floors. I'll try an outdoor table next time. I prefer breakfast there over other meals.

I really liked this restaurant. Radishes were a fresh, light starter. Squash was delicious (must like anchovies), and the Tabouleh and Pork Chop we’re both prepared well.

Incredibly attentive service. Terrific Squash Blossom Picatta for starters. Scallops for dinner had a wonderful flavor. My wife had the falafel with tabouleh and amazingly the flavors combined in that dish to be wonderful.

I arrived early and was immediately offered to be seated at the table, and I had a choice of tables! Service was excellent. Our wait person was attentive, giving us lots of time to order, eat and then hang out over coffee and conversation. A win-win!

We got there and the waiter immediately took us to our table. For the appetizer we got the deviled eggs and they were amazing! There were four and each one had different garnish’s! My drink was an awesome ginger lemon mock tail. For my main course I had two fish tacos with a spicy sauce and a jalapeño cabbage slaw. Delicious! Overall even though I had been there many times, the experience was still as great as ever.

The food here was AMAZING! I hardly ever eat every bit of food on my plate when I go out to eat, but here, I could have eaten several more plates. The food was fresh and perfect for summer. I would come here again for sure!

Cookshop is an attractive, lively, spacious restaurant in a fun location. We enjoyed the food for the most part -- the sea scallops and the desserts were very good. The pork chop was dry, but that was the only downside of the meal. Service was friendly and attentive.

Met a friend with my husband for lunch. It appeared others were doing the same. It's a lovely place with a menu that seems to offer something for everyone even though its choices are not that many. They make some lovely cocktails and the service is pretty good. Like everyplace these days it gets rather loud-an issue that divides generations. Overall it's a fine choice for different reasons.

Crowded (Squished) in my chair by the large guy directly behind me. He was there first and felt he didn't need to negotiate space with me. Loud room. Typical smallish NYC portions and high NYC prices. Steps from the High Line though - nice for an after meal stroll.

We were lucky to get an outdoor table, which was lovely. When entering the restaurant to use the restroom, the noise level was oppressive. The food was very good ( the corn "hummus" was amazing) and the service was very attentive. I would certainly recommend Cookshop, but if you are sensitive to the decibel level, grab an outdoor table. The traffic noise is nothing compared to the indoor din.
