Second time at Hudson West Kitchen and it did not disappoint again in any capacity. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere are all executed perfectly. The new shawarma dish is out of this world as well as the Greek mussels per usual. If you like a dirty martini with a little heat, yea I said it, ask the bartender for a the martini hot and dirty. You will be on your second round in no time. Can’t wait for our next visit!

And if you don’t feel like ending the night be sure to get an espresso martini. One of the best our table has ever had!

Service was excellent, we had to say no more to the bottomless mimosas! Constantly topping us up. Food was great. Wasn’t crowded due to location but was worth the walk.

Yes, it’s way, way, way west on W. 57th St., but don’t let that stop you from dining here. The menu is varied and will please the pickiest eater in the crowd. Superb crispy perfectly made fried calamari (get extra sauce), the salmon entree is totally deelish and beautifully presented. The Greek salad is flavorful, generous and in a lively vinaigrette. Too full for dessert but the options are beyond alluring! Diners at the next table went bonkers over their Irish coffee and ordered a second round!

There are tons of bland, boring and overpriced brunch places in the city, but this isn’t one of those. First of all, there’s bottomless mimosas ✨ then, there’s Shane, the best server in the city. The food is delicious and a variety to feed any crowd. The place is spacious airy and casual enough to relax and enjoy the ambiance, but tastefully decorated to remind you that it’s a nice place. This is definitely my new favorite brunch place ❤︎

Overall good.
The wings were one of the best I have ever had! Absolutely outstanding.
On the flip side, the lamb sliders were mediocre at best. Lamb had no flavor & very small for $20 bucks.
Shishitos & dips were good.

The tuna tartare was a highlight. The peppers were very good as well. The calamari was mediocre. Service started out good but then was poor. The entrees were mediocre as well.

I have frequented this establishment for many years when it was formerly Ousia and now as Hudson West Kitchen + Craft Bar. The owners have done a great job maintaining their level of excellence with their new menu. I was so in love with the food that I ordered somethings twice and ordered more to take home.

I must also add that the bartender is a true mixologist and I enjoyed the Oracle drink. Glenn, our waiter, has great energy and is very inviting and attentive.

Lastly, the chef has obviously done an excellent job and she is such a sweet person. Thank you Hudson West Kitchen + Craft Bar for making our day.

I had a truly wonderful experience at Hudson West Kitchen. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. Everything I ordered was delicious. The charred broccoli and lemon gnocchi were both amazing. And the branzino was unbelievably fresh and flavorful. My server Glenn was fantastic. He was so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He did everything possible to make my dinner perfect. When I couldn't decide on a dessert, I let him choose for me. He brought me the brownie with the salted caramel ice cream - which was so brilliant. I look forward to going back very soon!
