It was our daughters 21st birthday celebration and she chose Craft.
Every aspect of our experience went above and beyond our expectations.
The food, the drinks, the decadent deserts and the people, the people were warm and friendly and from the moment we walked in we were taken care of. It was truly a one of a kind dining experience. I highly recommend dining at Craft.
My daughter felt so special on this very special occasion.
Our hats go off to all of the staff but especially to Conor and John G.
Fabulous people!!!

The food was amazing but the service was even better. The staff were prepared for our anniversary and greeted us with as such. Even our menus, we got to take home, had a personalized anniversary message. Our expectations were high but they still exceeded them.

I chose Craft because I admire chef Colicchio and all the good work he does. I had the hen of the woods as an appetizer, and frankly, they make me sad because I though I made GREAT mushrooms, but I was completely mistaken. These are GLORIOUS. I also had the tajarin with white truffle and chives. Mind-blowingly delicious. The “Grinch” cocktail was fun and tasty, and the port I had for dessert came with some lovely little shortbread cookies. Best part? It was my first time to NYC and my server had me a menu printed with “Welcome to New York” at the top to take home. Such a sweet gesture! Please, do yourself a favor and get to Craft when in the city. It’s not to be missed!

Craft wasn’t very good years ago. I gave it another try and it still isn’t good. It’s a shame too since it’s really one of the most beautiful rooms in the city with a great bar and terrific service. They just need a new chef.

Every dish was excellent. Layers of flavor and complexity built into the dish. Not like some places where they serve a piece of albeit nicely salted meat or fish and slather with a tasty sauce. I have nothing against that, but here the flavor is fully integrated into the duck, fish, vegetables or whatever as a holistic entity. So much craft and sensibility and prep behind it.

The space is beautifully designed and high end but not pretentious at all. Music was on the energetic side but not too loud so ambiance seemed youthful but you can talk.

Excellent service from a guy I remember from Collicchio. Loyalty is a good sign. Did not push us to over order and did not push pricey wines. Ended up with a bottle of cava for starters and a delightful Saumur Champigny that suited our order and was under 100.
