It's freezing in the restaurant. I've been a few times, and that's always the case.

The food was amazing. We made a reservation and still waited about 30 minutes which was hard with small children. But the meal was worth it. Strawberry butter to die for and a churro waffle. Genius.

Had breakfast for lunch. Enjoyed the strawberry butter on fluffy toasted biscuit. Potatoes didn’t wow me. Eggs were good. Linzer tart was delicious, light and buttery but needed more jam.

I used to come here a lot; it was a vibrant neighborhood spot, with good well-priced food and a cool ambiance. The service was never great, but it was absolutely tolerable. Haven't been for a while; came with a friend. Deader than dead as an environment: no one else there, a peculiar cleaning fluid smell permeated the place, there were people standing at the counter in front, but no one to take an order or anything. Given that we were the only folks there, it was a remarkable amount of time before anyone remembered to help us. The food was ok, nothing great. And it was too expensive for all that.

I'll not be back. (Maybe it was just a really off night, but still...)

This was an awful experience. We had a reservation, but it didn't matter. The hostess kept vanishing. She would disappear and return but was never polite to the customers that were cramming into the space to put their names down. I know this restaurant is small, so I didn't mind the cramming by the hostess station, but it was the hostess attitude and constant leaving her station. When my friend and I were finally seated in the back after waiting for over 20 minutes we were shocked to see empty tables. We had no idea why we were not seated right away. We then sat for another 20 minutes as no one came to our table. We finally asked a waitress if should would take our order and she said it wasn’t her and she would get someone. When the waitress finally came she said let me bring you over water we declined saying we would just like to take our order. After receiving the food, we were so disappointed. The food was not worth it. After eating our meal, we asked for the check, that took forever and then after getting the check waited another 15 minutes for the waitress to pay. We finally got up and brought the check over to the register. We asked to speak with a manager and was told no manager was there which was not surprising. We will never go back.

We booked this as an option for downtown near the 911 memorial. Not knowing the city- it came up when googled as close. It was a 30 min cab ride away and in Harlem in this little dingy place. We did not stay. They said the one in downtown closed 3 years ago. Strange how it let me make a reservation/had great reviews/and came up first on google. major disappointment

The food at Kitchenette is always delicious. I keep forgetting, though, that their brunch drinks are sub-par. We ordered a bellini, a mimosa and a sangria. They were all watery and the sangria was just not sangria.

One of the best breakfasts in the city, which fortunately they serve until 4. Love the biscuits plus their cakes are to die for - especially the carrot cake which is one of the best ANYWHERE!

Brunch was so delicious but it was impossible to get refills of water, coffees on time or extra napkins . The restaurant was tight too, would suggest to go on an off hour to get better service and more space

The service was prompt, courteous, and gracious. The food was delicious. I had the buttermilk fried chicken and it was delicious. The side of Mac and Cheese could have been hotter and less dried out. My starter if chicken matzoh ball soup was outstanding. My wife had the turkey burger and salad and was very positive. All in all, the meal definitely hit high grades. We will return with pleasure.

The food here is great, but the only reason it was quiet was that it was Sunday evening; for breakfast and lunch, and especially weekend brunch, it's often a madhouse. I do always find the staff's attitude a little offputting. This time, when I asked for a simple vegetable substitution -- red cabbage is not my favorite -- I was told no one has ever asked for a substitution before, and I could have only mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese (on a plate that came with potato pancakes). Really, would it have broken the bank to give me squash instead?

A lovely, casual & quaint restaurant with a great vibe. We enjoyed Sunday breakfast and had the Lumber Jack breakfast and the cheesy grits which were both superb! The scones are amazing with marmalade butter, YUM! A great place to eat if you are a student or work near Columbia University or Manhattan School of Music. The staff were all so friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.

Food was fine; our server was very kind and attentive. The noise level was over-the-top though, but maybe this is typical for w/e brunch. Plus I think the layout and design make for *very* lively acoustics.

Great food, nice ambience. Unfortunately we (party of 3) had to sit at a small table and an even smaller chair outside. Not very comfy but if you could get a real table it’s a nice place.
