While the service was good, the food was terrible. I ordered the Eggs Benedict and thought the Hollandaise sauce seemed spoiled. My daughter and mom had pancakes. Their pancakes tasted dense and chewy with very little flavor. The sausages they added on top were literally inedible.
The best part of our Brunch was the bacon!

Crabcakes were delicious-full of crabmeat, not filler. Nice ambience allowed quiet conversation. Waitress was attentive.

This restaurant is fine if you are in a rush to get to a Lincoln Center performance. The menu is limited but adequate and the service speeds up if you request it. The food was well prepared and tasty.

The convenience of Lincoln Center accounts for my choice of the Kitchen.
They could improve by serving warm to hot food, not tepid, as has been the case the last two dinners. Improving that would upgrade my review.

I had the crab cakes which were good. The shredded Brussels sprouts served with them was spicy and complimented the crab cakes well. The clam chowder, a special that night was stellar!

You need to put this review in context. This restaurant is in the main floor of Geffken Hall Lincoln Center. The food is surprisingly good. But it's noisy and certainly makes conversation difficult. The food is good, the price is right and you can't beat the location if you are attending the Philharmonic.

My husband had an omelet and I had a supposed frittata. Both were like yellow sponge rubber ( my frittata was 1 1/4” thick), and both tasted as if they’d been cooked the day before, left on the counter overnight, and microwaved to scalding before being brought to us. Just dreadful. We haven’t eaten in that restaurant since the name, and evidently the cook, changed,
and won’t , again.

My wife and I are subscribers to the NY Philharmonic and we eat at the Kitchen before every performance that we attend - 8 or 9 times a year. The food is always good and the service is excellent. I usually have one of their fish dishes, often the Cod, which is excellent. The clipped vegetable salad is crisp and fresh, and comes with a light, delicious dressing. They are also very accommodating to my wife’s dietary restrictions and are always willing to amend recipes to make things salt-free and without oil.

The scallop raviolis were really good but the risotto was not because it was crunchy. Service was slow and the bus boy was relied on significantly. Good thing he was around to get our drinks, refill our water, and bread. They seemed understaffed that night but our server didn't seem to care about us as much as the other tables. I expect better service for the charge. Lady next to us had to send food back because it was cold. This was prior to the rush.

The bread is still the worst in town. When will you get a better baker. Does the bread have to be as soft, and tasteless as cotton candy?

It is very convenient to dine here before attending a Philharmonic concert. Allow plenty of time to enjoy any of a variety of tasty dishes. As it gets closer to curtain time, the kitchen can back up and tie up service. The wait staff is accommodating, but they can't control what it going on in the kitchen. I thoroughly enjoyed the swordfish which was the special. After the shrimp cocktail, which was excellent, my husband was pleased that they were able to prepare spaghetti marinara for him, also enjoyed.

Unfortunately, we were seated in an area that was near the service areas so it felt like we were really in the kitchen with clanging dishes etc. There are two parts to the Kitchen restaurant, and one is nicer and more formal than the other, where we were. But the food was great and the service very pleasant.

Disappointing! It has changed for the worse! The tables are so close together that you have to move at least two tables to slide in. The food is not bad; the waiters are hurried; with so many people jammed in together your conversation is completely public.
I used to enjoy having a quiet dinner there before a concert but not anymore! I will not go back at least until I see a big change!

The food was very mediocre in quality. The restaurant is basically in the lobby of Geffen Hall so you are eating (almost literally) under the stairs or in the lobby. The menu looked varied and good, but the quality of the food was very basic and not inexpensive for what you got.
