Our go to restaurant if we want the very best meal in NYC, but in a comfortable, non-stuffy environment.
And a shout out to our favorite wait staff, Ed. A real professional!

We loved craft! The beet salad was a pleasant surprise as was all beets! Our favorite items were the lamb shank and potatoes Aligot. You really made my husbands night with the happy birthday message on the menu! Oh and the donuts with cardamom were exquisite! We would love the recipe as our friend Joan said they tasted just like what her mother used to make! We loved all of the veggies! Thank you for doing your brussel sprouts without bacon as they are so delicious they need nothing!!! Our server was amazing and funny! An amazing experience!

We ordered the tasting menu and all but one of the courses was outstanding. The fourth course, the waygu beef wellington, was very chewy. I could only eat one bit of it, so I left most of it on my plate and no one inquired about it or asked me about it. I think that for the price we were paying, someone should have paid attention to that especially because it was supposed to be one of the heavier dishes of the tasting menu.

I have always wanted to dine at Craft. While the ambiance and service were fantastic, the food itself was a real disappointment. Nearly the entire meal was extremely over-salted, and at the same, the flavors (except for the cocktails, which were great!) were very uninspired and had no flavor, except for salt. I was really disappointed with the food, especially for the price. The steak and potatoes gratin were delicious, but that is about it. I will not go there again.

The tasting menu was outstanding, the perfect 5 course meal. The burnt ice cream at the end was one of my favorite desserts. The staff could have been more hospitable, it seems they have become routine at service.

Stopped by the restaurant on my way home because I didn't feel like cooking. I had a great meal of beet salad, seared halibut and gnocci while seated at the bar. The wine list is exceptional at Craft and I found a fantastic chardonnay by the glass to compliment the meal.

Craft is very good but not what it used to be. The amuse bouche was cold and not intense enough. The risotto nowhere near as good as it used to be. There are no special dishes for two like there used to be. especially at holiday season. Most of what they serve is still outstanding -of best quality. It has just lost the magic. Some of the places we go to have been around just as long and have remained consistent.

I have been coming here with my partner for a number of years now. The food and service is always exquisite. The short rib and baked foie gras are always on point. The pasta offerings vary, however again are always delicious. Craft as a restaurant is phenomenal, and deserves a better standard of dress from its patrons. The only let down is that the restaurant doesn’t serve espresso coffee options.

We were honestly a little underwhelmed for the price point. The appetizers were the best part of the meal, while the collection of protein selection main courses were perfectly fine, they just were not memorable. Side dishes were a bust - lukewarm potatoes and $15 for literally 3 small pieces of bland roast cauliflower. If At $100 pp for dinner, I have fairly high expectations for dishes that are both interesting and well executed. The wine list seemed to run on the crazy end of the price spectrum too. Oh well.

An expectedly busy evening was still started off with on time seating for our reservation. We were quickly greeted by our waiter who was both knowledgeable and passionate about the food and dining experience. After reviewing the menu and guiding us to some personal favorites we were then greeted by the sommelier who was not interested in over selling us, but rather finding a suitable choice for the always challenging seafood and red meat combination. The family style dining experience allowed for a tasting of several menu items that were flavorful and memorable. Finishing the meal with the chocolate soufflé and eggnog ice cream was a perfect finish to an excellent meal.

We had a great experience for dinner. wine list is nice, and has some fairly cheap per-glass options. We split the brisket with mashed potatoes for our entree, and had two apps to start. The mashed potatoes were unbelievable. The ambiance was nice, it felt elevated, but also relaxed. Good noise level, so you felt private but also that there were people around. A great touch that they hand you a breakfast muffin as you walk out the door. Would definitely recommend for a birthday/anniversary/special occasion dinner.
