Service was nice and the food was fine. It’s a great outdoor location, but...
It’s not Craft, the fine dining restaurant, but the outdoor bistro due to COVID. I think it should not be named Craft as it’s misleading

I describe the ambiance as poor. That's because we brunched outside on the sidewalk!

These guys nailed the outdoor dining experience. The menu has been modified to be less extensive and more appropriate for al fresco. We ordered appetizers. The heirloom tomatoes were notably excellent. Then, a bunch of yummy main courses. My son ordered the smash burger and loved it. The cod was scrumptious. And, desert couldn't have been more perfect. We ordered the cherry pie for two, which was out of this world. My son raved about his ice cream sandwich. While we can't wait for the pre-COVID Craft to return, this is really an A+ alternative.

Many years ago, we had dinner at Craft with our daughter and son-in-law. We enjoyed it but hadn’t been back until now. Just the two of us this time. Superb cuisine, attentive service, comfortable seating, and a blessedly moderate noise level (though the music played would not be my choice). This overall excellent experience didn’t surprise us since when Craft began serving lunch a couple years ago, we went several times. Always wonderful, so we were sad when lunch was discontinued. They did bring it back briefly during the 2019 holiday season, and of course, we made it our business to go. We’re now putting dinner at Craft on our regular dining out rotation.

I have eaten here before & returned for the beloved short ribs & a night with cherished friends. We felt that the service was "off" on the night that we were there, so not sure I would rush to come back.

We had a truly exceptional dinner at Craft. Food was impeccable. Service was better--hospitable, efficient, generous (it was my wife's birthday, which was acknowledged graciously and without undue fanfare as if it were a spectacle...), charming even (thanks, Skye). The ambiance is good (people even seemed inspired to dress above the usual NYC-restaurant level...), especially the vibes. Expensive: quite; in this case you get indeed what you pay for.

Oh my, this place just isn't for NYers anymore, which I guess should not too much of a surprise. It's really geared towards visitors - the first thing the waiter said was, "where are you from?" The food was totally fine, and just fine. At half the price anywhere else it would have been great. Being a Food Network star is great . . forgetting how you got there, not so much.

I was hoping the recent reviews I’ve read for Craft wouldn’t “apply” to my experience, but unfortunately they were right. I have always liked Tom Colicchio and was excited to give Craft a try when visiting NY. While the service was excellent (albeit slightly confusing as we seemed to have 2 waitresses), dinner itself was simply “fine” - not fine dining. My angolotti was undercooked and sides were fairly standard (my husband did like is halibut however). We tried two desserts - one far better than the other. Overall, it was a disappointment...especially based on cost and knowing the restaurant’s (past) fanfare. I was definitely hoping for more.

You are treated like royalty from the second you walk in. Every dish is perfectly cooked and there are many options you wouldn’t find in an everyday restaurant. Same goes for the drinks. Obviously you should have high expectations from Tom Colicchio and they will be met.

Craft says it’s simple but the price is not so simple for valentine dinner it was $500 only two drinks extra from the menu .. we waited to go to craft since long.After our dinner I was so disappointed at the food ... salad was so rancid ... steak !!! Over priced steak was over done sadly ... mushrooms and the bread probably was the only thing that had flavor ... no serving spoons are given out .. so you have to try to scoop it all out with fork and knife ... dessert was ok ... just can’t believe for the price the taste and work of craft was not worth it sadly...

I can't speak to their a la carte, but the valentines day pre-fixe was very average for the price. Our final bill was close to $450 with drinks for two of us, and we were left unimpressed with the food portions and quality. Service was excellent, people were very accommodating and helpful. Ambiance was great. We may come back to try the a la carte menu.
