Cooks & Soldiers brings the cuisine and cultural experience of Spain’s Basque region to the flourishing West Midtown area. The menu is divided into “pintxos tradicionales,” or tapas-like snacks served atop toasted bread; “pinxtos especiales,” or Basque-inspired small plates; “asador” including a variety of wood-grilled fish, meats and vegetables; and a selection of unique and modern desserts. Behind the bar, Cooks & Soldiers offers guests an extensive collection of Basque and Spanish wines, txakoli and ciders, in addition to craft beer and signature cocktails. The cocktail list places a heavy emphasis on gin, offering a seasonal selection of house-infused tonics blended into gin tonics and other popular libations.

We had a fantastic meal and got to enjoy many things on the menu. The Bikini grilled cheese was absolutely amazing! The scallops were the table favorite and got two orders of them. The pulpo was delicious along with the wood fired mushrooms and cauliflower. We ordered the whole fish as well to share and devoured it. Everything was delicious and we will definitely be back!

This was our third visit to Cooks & Soldiers and we had a GREAT time! Our server Latoya was very friendly and helpful with the menu selections, and recommended an excellent wine selection. We sat on the porch and it was pleasant with the space heaters on the ceiling. The food was amazing, and all four of us commented how much we enjoyed the venue and the service. The one kilo ribeye was the start of the show!

I am a big fan of this restaurant group and this location does not disappoint. The pace of small plates aligns with causal conversation and craft cocktails. The wait staff is. Wet knowledge on wine, spirts and menu selections.

Highly recommend and will be back soon!

INCREDIBLE! First time to this location. When you walk in, you have this very warm and elegant environment. This place has been put on the favorite list officially! I was here to celebrate a birthday and it was literally amazing! The food was amazing, different, unique to taste, and presented beautifully! The service was exceptional! The dining experience was very refreshing for this type of food! It was just an outstanding experience. Between the experience, the service, and the food; it was definitely worth every penny. Will be coming back soon!

Fabulous!! Unusual twists to everyday food. Been twice with large parties and several have commented that it was maybe the best meal of their lifetime. Ask for Lori for the best service in town..she will order for the entire group and do it right...a true professional! Make sure you try the apps..not to be missed! The fish was Arctic Char served in a most delightful fashion.

Most of the food was out of this world. Only complaint was the mushroom side (literally just doused in oil, no other flavors, and came cold). Overall great experience...although our waiter disappeared for about 30 and we couldn't flag him down to order more food.

This is our 4th time and we love it every single time. It’s never been a let down. The ambience, service, and food are nothing short of amazing. We have our go to dishes and love trying the seasonal dishes as well. It’s one of my husband and I’s favorite places to celebrate an occasion or just to have an amazing meal. The food is amazing. The ingredients are well thought out and executed perfectly. If you get LaToya as your server, you are in luck. We’ve ended up having her twice and she remembered who we were and where we sat the first time we met her (and that was 3-4 months back)!! She’s made both dinners so enjoyable with her sweet and considerate personality, making sure our dishes and drinks are out in a timely manner, and always making us feel welcomed and loved! We look forward to our next meal at Cooks & Soldiers.

We are a big fan of this family of restaurants and Cooks and Soldiers just took its place at the top of my list. A quaint little gem, cozy and very cool vibe. Started with a well crafted cocktail..a classic high west Manhattan. The food was outstanding, highlighting the escargot fried rice and pulpo, simply amazing flavors! Ended the evening with americanos and spiced honey donuts....sooo tasty! Great place, great evening!

Unfortunately Cooks & Soldiers did not live up to our last few visits in any way. We were seated in the very back of the side porch behind a column so there was absolutely NO atmosphere. It was so dark we couldn't see the menu or the food without using our flashlight. The martini's were a hefty price for some of the smallest pours in the city. The Valentine lamb ribs special $22 were the tiniest ribs I've ever seen (no more than 4 inches) with a mere morsel of meat, and the rest all fat and bones. The ensalada lacked any flavor and quickly became wilted. The pistou sauce on the mushrooms was not detectable for $11. The highlight of the dinner was the pulpo which was nicely cooked but the portion small for $16. Not sure why it was served in a bowl. Not the memorable dinner we had hoped for on Valentine's.

Loved my first experience at Cooks & Soldiers. My only recommendations would be to try and avoid the patio, as the heaters are so hot you will be sweating before the entree drops. There are so many great dishes we tried, but the tables are so small that it is hard to get everything on the table! Next time I will request a larger table, in the main dining room. Really enjoyed the cocktails, they make a great G&T, and I had an awesome vodka craft cocktail. The rabbit appetizer, the chorizo app and the octopus were great starters. We shared the giant steak & salad, it was delicious. Finally, we shared a squash tart for dessert with espresso. Follow my order and you will be thrilled!
