    Everything was fabulous. They made us feel so special for my boyfriends moms birthday. The food was great! I loved the gem salad, Of course. We also had more like the squid ink pasta, rock shrimp pasta and tuna tartar. Overall 10/10.

    Food is great, but this is the second time I’ve dined at Hancock St. and been struck by staffing issues - specifically delays and the sense that the server is responsible for too many tables and is studiously avoiding eye contact with you because they’re overwhelmed. This time, the host ended up taking our drink orders b/c waiter was unavailable, and those orders took around 20 minutes to fill. The labor market is obviously very tight but this seems like an unusually salient issue at this restaurant.

    Food was overall very story and the reason why I come is because there are a few finishing that we really enjoy. Unfortunately, the host / maitre d' was extremely rude during our entire experience, not accommodating and had a rude tone toward multiple people in my party.

    They did not care when a mouse was walking netx to the outside tables. They just said “this is the street” and forgot about the mouse. It was very uncomfortable to stay having dinner there.

    Extremely overpriced. cauliflower appetizer fir $21 was small and just ok. The entrees are about $8-10 more than they should be. No refills on their $6 coffee. No sugar substitute available. Though the veal schnitzel was quite good, this restaurant is not worth the cost.

    Truly amazing dining experience at Hancock St. restaurant. The dining room is absolutely beautiful. I had the special kale and beet salad to start - which was fresh and delicious. I then had the tuna with the white bean puree and pesto sauce. It was out of this world. And I finished with the chocolate cake - which may be the best chocolate cake that I've ever had. My server Jaime was wonderful - so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. He made everything perfect. I can't wait to go back.

    This may possibly be the best dining experience I’ve had since the beginning of the pandemic. The hosts were helpful, courteous, and affable. Our server was knowledgeable, patient, and precise with her service. The food was delectable and the price point was reasonable. But the best part? The ambiance and music! It was perfect and I will be back.

    As it has been - great food & more so entire staff from MGT to the servers were A+++ . My 3rd time there & this time I invited 14 of my friends . We all had a great time. Sat on the 2nd level /in their semi private room which had ample space. Special thanks to Allicia, Cecilia & our waiter johnny. Also Melanie whom served us in the past . Great barmaids & bartender. And the rest of the staff . Will see you soon . There is not one bad dish for that reason I’ve been here 3 times thus far .

    Overall excellent restaurant, highly recommend it. The outdoor patio is beautiful, services was attentive, and food was outstanding. The menu is so good it was extremely hard to decide what to order. We went with the sour dough bread with whipped canellini, charred cauliflower, adult kids pasta, and grilled branzino. Can't wait to head back to try more of the menu.

    The food and ambiance here are okay but the service was terrible. Overall, there are many better NYC restaurants at this price point. Would not come back here. To start, the weather forecast said it would rain in the next 30min. Rather than moving us to a covered space, the general manager (!) chose to negotiate with us whether 80% chance of rain indicated whether it was going to rain. Surprise surprise, there was torrential downpour within 30min. I’ve worked in hospitality - this was terrible form from start to finish. Dinner took us 3 hours because we waited so long between our appetizers and our entrees even though the restaurant was not full at all. We somehow only saw our server like three times (including when he handed us our menu and took our order). Anytime we needed something, we’d have to ask the runners, and half of them never came back. Pretty disappointing because we had high hopes for this spot.

    Signature cocktails are on fire ! Extremely friendly servers but not completely understood serving at a restaurant for such a price point nor the details of the menu. Bronzino beautifully executed. Sea urchin toasts were yum but too tiny to worth $22. Burger was average with below average fries in an overkilled size. In conclusion, in my option, 20% price drop, could have been a great post.
