Craft Ratings and Reviews
After dining at Craft one can only ponder whether he/she would have received better service at the DMV.
The evening started off with a twenty minute wait for our 8:45pm reservation. During our wait at the bar, the bartender spilled on a drink on my date's purse without offering so much as an apology. Incident #1.
Eventually we were seated in a charming section of the restaurant. However, our server appeared to be allergic to the section -- it took another twenty minutes before he came by to take our order. Incident #2.
My date and I were quite hungry at this point and asked for bread, which was being enjoyed by all of the other diners. The server assured us he would bring some, but never did. Incident #3.
Finally the meal came and it was.... utterly disappointing. The flat iron steak could only be described as bland -- it even appeared to be devoid of salt. The pasta, arugula salad and brussel sprouts were equally unimpressive. Incident #4.
At this point, I could only hope that paying for the meal would go smoothly. It didn't. Instead, there was another extended wait, followed by the return of my credit card with a large greasy fingerprint from our waiter. Incident #5.
I will end this review by offering a few words of wisdom to the OpenTable community. If you are thinking about dining at Craft -- simply don't.
My #1 go-to business dinner restaurant in NYC. From start to finish, this meal was top notch. Received the table i requested on Open Table; our waiter (Metz) was phenomenal--didn't miss a thing. Pacing of meal was perfect for a business dinner. Fois Gras with figs to begin was sublime; short ribs melted like butter, aligot potatoes were amazing, roasted baby carrots were like candy, Halibut--simple and perfect. Desserts were incredible--chocolate pot du creme, carrot cake with tahini frosting, chocolate souffle with earl gray cream was beyond decadent and worth every calorie. Just an absolutely phenomenal meal. This restaurant never lets me down.
I had a terrific time introducing my new boss and his direct reports to Craft. The ambience is rarified and intimate, yet welcoming. The lunch menu is small, yet expertly created and presented with flavors and textures varied enough for every taste.
The Fig Tatin with ginger ice cream is exquisite.
We were impressed from start to finish with our evening at Craft. The restaurant was decorated beautifully for the holidays. Our waiter, Cesar was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He offered terrific suggestions of what and how much to order. There were so many amazing dishes on the menu, we enjoyed being able to share lots of different flavors. The presentation was also amazing. Our sommelier recommended some terrific wines that complimented the meal. Special details like offering an amuse bouche, and a parting gift of a muffin for the next morning's breakfast were noted and appreciated. Would highly recommend Craft to even the most discerning foodie!
Craft has always been a special event restaurant for us, and we've had several really lovely celebratory meals there. But this time everything had fallen off just a bit, and since it's expensive (for our budget), I'm not sure we'll be back. This time the octopus was great, the lamb good but unsurprising and the panna cotta a bit weird. My favorite thing about the ambiance is the acoustics, but the playlist last week veered from tempo to tempo with each song, and no one seemed to be minding the volume. The service was fine, the entire staff friendly, but again, no one went the extra mile. (A request of the maitresse d' was immediately forgotten, which would not have happened, I think, on previous visits.) So though it wasn't a bad evening in any sense, and the food was fine, I do think we'll be exploring other venues when we want a memorable evening out.
We appreciated the quiet yet lively atmosphere so much... we had family in town and each one of us was so relieved that we didn’t have to shout across the table and leave with a sore throat to be heard. The food was delicious and sophisticated and just what we needed.
Craft is a neighborhood restaurant for me so I often forget about going there but we went last Sunday night and I have to say it was the best meal that I've had in the city in a long time. Every single thing we ordered was outstanding, the bronzino, the pork, the mushrooms, the potatoes au gratin, the arugula salad, etc. It's an oldie but goodie!!
I have been to Craft two times. The first time in 2016 i was blown away with the Roasted quail and Rissoto. I love this place. I recently re visited on Dec 2nd 2017 and i ordered the same meal. Unfortunatly it just wasnt the same. The quail was Luke warm/cold and not roasted the same. It was still good, seasoned correctly but just not as good as last time. The Rissoto was butternut squash and pomegrante which was good but the pomegranate was very strange in the rissoto. Take the pomegrante out and the rissoto was delicious. Everything else was great. Wine list is great. Mixed drinks are great. Deserts are out of this world Amazing. I would litterly eat desert here everyday. I will definitely be back again in 2018 with the hopes that I get the Michelin star treatment they are known for. I hope that maybe they were just having an off night in the kitchen, cause everything was good but not as great as last time I went. Still one of my all time favorites. See you again soon.
We were very disappointed in this restaurant as we heard great things and read wonderful reviews. We were seated immediately but service was slow to get cocktails and dinner. It took well over an hour to be served our dinner and the food for each of the 4 of us was literally cold when it arrived. The waiter and mgr attempted to heat up our meal and also offered to bring us something different. Heating up the food really didn't solve the issue as then the food was either dry or over done. Mgmt did comp all of our meals which was the right thing to do by the restaurant. I spoke to some other patrons that evening and they raved about their meals so may be it was just an off night for our entire table. Also, I must add that the wine list is extensive but the pricing was almost offensive.
My husband and I had dinner for our 7th wedding anniversary and our experience was amazing. The team took care of us and had the best recommendations.
We had the octopus and orecchiette as entrées and the duck and chicken as main courses. We also tried the sunchokes and the gnocchi as side dishes. Everything was very tasty and perfectly cooked. Our dessert was the panna cotta and it was the perfect end to a fantastic meal.
