Craft was excellent in all ways. Ambiance, good choice and quality, attentive and friendly staff. It was our anniversary and they brought us complimentary champagne, a special dessert and took us on a tour of their kitchen downstairs. Would highly recommend Craft for anyone looking for an exceptional dinner

We went to Craft to celebrate our anniversary. They personalized the top of the menu with our names and a happy anniversary message. The service was excellent, the tables are generously spaced apart from each other for privacy (which is rarely the case in NYC) and the wine and food was nothing short of exquisite. We've been recommending this restaurant to friends and family at every possible opportunity. Cannot say enough good things about it. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

We visit the NYC area each year during the summer. The last couple of years we've made at least one visit to Craft for dinner and had great experiences. This year, I was initially thinking we'd opt for exploring beyond our favorites. Towards the end of our trip, Craft came to mind again but, our dinner schedule was full. We decided to go for lunch. I'm so glad we did, the three-course lunch was fantastic. The lesson I learned, always be sure to include a stop at Craft in our NYC dining plans.

The service was extraordinary! We loved the entire concept of sharing and being able to choose the accompaniments to the main courses. the pasta with sea urchin, botarga, and sun gold tomatoes was absolutely amazing. Don't miss the donuts--the best texture ever. We loved our entire dining experience and will certainly be returning.

We finally made it to Craft and we were so happy to be there celebrating a family meal. The staff and service is excellent, really second to none, as it has been at other Colicchio restaurants we have been to. We were a party of 7 and chose the tasting menu. Every course was amazing but especially the farm egg raviolo - I wish I could cook like that. Thank you to Mez and to Mia for an outstanding experience. We will be back.

Truly terrific. Restaurant experiences on Saturday night in the summer has often been disappointing to me, and well known to many New Yorkers in the know, with a sense that the main chef was out of town. This was not only a summer weekend but the weekend before July 4th and everything was top notch. Thank you - I was entertaining a special international friend and you made me look good.

The food 🍲 was prepared perfectly. We liked varied selections and the family 👪 style service. My wife ordered the brazed Fois Gras and said it was the ever.

The evening was close to perfect when we got a little attitude from our server because we complained about the salted caramel ice cream. His whole demeanor changed. Made us think we did something wrong.

Bottom line.. We recommend Craft but stay away from the salted caramel ice cream.

We've been to Craft several times but the last time was at least 2 years ago. This time everything was perfect except for one remarkable change. The food was definitely over-salted. from the beginning amuse bouche through the entree everything was over-salted. Not sure why they're doing that. Absent all that salt, the food was excellent. We ordered short ribs (melt in your mouth good) and soft shell crabs (fabulous). Please go lighter on salt!

We had such a wonderful anniversary dinner at Craft. When they called to confirm the reservation, they asked for our names, and when we were seated we were given personalized menus wishing us a happy anniversary, which were then given to us to keep. Such a nice, small gesture that started a perfect evening. The staff was incredibly attentive without being overbearing, and the food was impeccable. The quail was especially exquisite.

When the restaurant called to confirm our reservation they asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. We happen to be coming for my son's 15th birthday. When we arrived and given the menus, my son's menu had "Happy Birthday Ellison" on the top! They rolled it up with a seal for him to take it with him. They also gave him delicious ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
The food is incredible too!

Went here for lunch on our first day in NYC. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. Wonderful experience. The steak was perfectly cooked and all the food was seasoned well. Dessert was beautiful, ingredients were fresh and high-quality. My only complaint was that Tom and Padma didn’t come to eat with us 😉

Visiting Craft restaurant has become a family tradition. There's always something on the menu for every taste bud, for every preference. You can't beat the value! The portion size is filling without exposing you to the after meal lethargy, so you can continue exploring the city or return to work. The staff is helpful and knowledgable, especially Sara! We came to celebrate a special occasion, and thanks to her we still can't stop talking about it. Five starts to her and many, many thanks. The steak and Craft burger are a must, and don't fear the squid salad. It wins all the yums!
