Very decent and creative small plates with good portion sizes. Drink prices should be updated on OpenTable as wines by the glass were priced $3-$5 more than what is listed. They seat every chair in the restaurant through reservations, including the bar, so you are not guaranteed a table. This was odd but fine for us, but seemed to be an unpleasant surprise for a less mobile older patron who arrived after us. Service—at least at the bar—was pretty indifferent. We had one wrong item served that had to be replaced, resulting in a long wait between our first two and second two plates. No one ever checked in to ask how our food was or if we needed anything. The two guys running front of house seemed more interested in bro-omg around together than serving the guests. All that said, I would give it another try, hopefully with table seating. The food and wine were both good.

Excellent small plates. Very friendly, was very crowded by 6:30 pm on a Wednesday evening. Small menu, but has flavor to spare. Salad was VG. Mushroom tacos were so rich. The duck confit was great, with remarkable coleslaw. The fingerling potatoes with duck fat and more were super hot and delicious. Wines were paired to the dishes. All was good, no rush,

We were traveling for work and needed an easy place for dinner near our hotel. We found Kilo and it was exactly what we needed after a long day! The service was great, the music was super fun and the food was incredible!

Really loved Kilo. It is a simple small (narrow) restaurant wine and beer only which serves small (sharing) plates of really good food.We had the cauliflower, brussels sprouts, burata (served as it should be room temp) and the burger delicious. The two person wait/bar staff were great friendly and helpful. Highly recccomend as an excellent simple restaurant (NOT "fine" dining)

My reservation wasn’t honored, I think because my date who had arrived first said we weren’t eating. The host was incredibly rude and threatened to not check me in even though I was standing in front of him. 100% will not be back, will not recommend to all my friends in the neighborhood (I live and work a few blocks from kilo). There are so many great bars and restaurants in this neighborhood that you do not need to put up with rude service, plus $17 for a small pour of wine, horrible

Cute place, but small. Warm and hip host. I was the first to arrive, and was refused seating until all members of my party arrived; host pressured every few minutes to give the status of my remaining party (who was no more than 2 min late). Fast service. Most dishes deliciously savory, but portions were tiny. Because of the demand for tables on a Friday evening, we were (albeit graciously) requested to vacate our table for the next diners. Sharing dishes is the best way to go. Our favorites included pork tacos and duck.

The food is very good, but the portion is small. The venue is very small. We have a party of 6 and we have to cram in a small table in the corner of the restaurant, which is probably the only table which can accommodate more than 4 people. I would only recommend if you are going with 1/2 friends and looking for something very casual.

This was a return trip to Kilo and we enjoyed it. The room is long and skinny and has interesting details. Both the beer and wine offerings were not run-of-the-mill and the food is geared to small plate sharing. We sampled the goat cheese crostini, the mussels, and the mushroom tacos and enjoyed all three.

Cozy restaurant with a handful of tables including some that are communal style. Ordered 7-8 different items including a couple of appetizers (cauliflower, burrata and hummus), muscles, crab pasta, and they were consistently very high quality. The desert was brie cheese with honey, interesting but probably the least standout. Had an interesting selection of beer and wines, though nosebleed pricing ($17 for a glass of red wine). The waiting staff was friendly and quite helpful. We will do a repeat visit.

I love the ambiance of this restaurant, along with it's varied menu and outstanding service. We sat in the open front window and enjoyed the pedestrian parade, as many people carefully eyed the content of our creative plates. The tapas food choices are unique and well executed. My favorite was the oh-so-fresh whitefish salad and fingerlings. The new owner knew just what to serve me when I told him I am not a wine fan. Not only did I order a refill, but I took a photograph to remember the Cava! Thank you for a nice evening at kilo!

Wonderful experience - well curated menu with selective wine list that matches food perfectly. Ask for assistance on wine choice (I’m a Level 3 WSET grad and the advice was brilliant). Welcoming small space and service made the evening more than memorable. Brussel sprouts, octopus and special soft shell crab were each prepared simply bringing out great flavours. Thank you!

Small neighborhood restaurant with 10ish tables and a small bar. Very cool vibe. We had a pre-theater meal and the tapas like menu was perfect. We had the pork tacos, octopus, burrata and duck. The last three were excellent.

Service is casual but attentive. Wine, beer and soda (only real sugar sodas that were fantastic) were limited but we liked the choices we made so didn’t need a large selection.

The server said they change the menu every few weeks and that makes us want to visit again just to see what they have.

Highly recommended for casual, high quality dining at affordable prices.

I love this place. The food and drinks are outstanding every single time I’ve been there. Also the server from Alabama (I forget his name, sorry!) is so passionate and knowledgeable about wine. Every wine suggestion he’s given me has been truly outstanding, and exactly what I didn’t know I was looking for.

This was our second visit to Kilo. It was as I remembered it: creative food and an excellent wine list. Our group of four all ordered an appetizer and an entree, and we tried seven different menu items. All were excellent, from the beautifully-cooked Brussel Sprouts with nouc cham to the Octopus. The Horror Show red wine was a hit as well.

The ambiance is stripped-down Manhattan brick, a warehouse feeling that I enjoy. However, the noise level was intense when the place was full.
