Great spot for group dining and beautiful views. Ordered apps pizzas pasta and salad and dessert and everything was delicious. Also delicious cocktails. Reasonably priced given the location.

It was hot and the restaurant is an open air establishment and there was no escape from the heat. Waiter sat us and did not come to our table after us sitting there for a quite a few minutes. He was sitting at the table behind us talking to another table and didn’t seem to care that we decided to leave. Food was a bit high in price for what it was.

We ordered the Herbed Goat Cheese pizza and the Lobster Fumet for lunch. Both were very delicious and the pasta was al dente. The saffron sauce in the fumet was flavorful but not overpowering. For dessert, we opted to try the Industry Puff - and it was really good for sharing! The puff was huge and filled with ice cream! Love it!

Wonderful menu, great service and a fun, lively ambiance overlooking the Seaport and East River. We had a reservation and there was 15-20 minute delay seating us. The hosts were very nice about it but a complimentary drink would have helped.

But it was worth the wait. Blistered shishito peppers, calamari salad, grilled octopus and hot apricot pizza were nicely prepared and delicious. And a nice selection of draught beer too.

Lovely view and very accommodating staff. Moved us to a table with a better view when it became available. We sat down a 8 pm and the kitchen seemed slow since it had rained earlier, and none of the outdoor tables were occupied. Very, very good food but took too long to make its way to our table

Industry Kitchen is a must for the view. The drinks are good however do not come hungry. The pizzas are a huge disappointment especially for NYC. I do not waste food but I had to send it back. Just get the margherita. I guess it ticked them off because a waiter came by to take away our chair and then we got the bill without being asked if we wanted more drinks, dessert or coffee. We went elsewhere for additional drinks and dessert.

Just go to the bar. Great service, fun, friendly!! I have been here 7 times at least lol.

The food was great, and location by the river nice on a hot evening and I wanted to really like this place but for a few reasons I just couldn’t. First off our sever was nice and very friendly but he rarely checked in, didn’t offer more drinks and brought our check before seeing if we wanted anything else or desert. The thing I hated most though was they only have plastic glasses - when ordering a $50 bottle of wine I don’t expect to drink it from beaten up old plastic tumblers. It felt like we were camping and completely destroyed the enjoyment of the wine. Sort it out Industry Kitchen why not just get some proper glasses? You serve beer in bottles so it can’t be because you are afraid of broken glass. Ridiculous.

We had a lovely lovely luncheon at Industry Kitchen.. loved the food, presentation, service, and atmosphere.. a little noisier than we would prefer and a little pricier, but overall a true delight!

Very disappointing! The food was subpar. One member of my group found a bug in the their food. We didn't pay for that meal but paid for the replacement. Another member received the wrong meal and waited 20 minutes for his correct meal to arrive. I would have expected better. No host or manager came to apologize. Obviously a great location but only for drinks. Very disappointed overall!

Waitress was attentive and gave great recommendations. Was a little noisy and full of after-work people, but not the restaurant's fault! Our apps came really quickly, which was a bit surprising. We felt a bit rushed, but it was a super busy evening so understandable. Will definitely return but at a time later in the day!

With views of the ocean, one cannot pass up dining at Industry Kitchen. The wait staff is incredibly hands on and engaging with each guest, ensuring that all the guests are satisfied and have everything they need.

First off let me start off by saying that their salads are super fresh. We had the industry salad and it hit the spot. My mother had the salmon which was delicious. I had the lemon chicken, which after reading several reviews many guests seemed to rave about. The lemon chicken was average, nothing special about it, no flavors that stood out except the fresh lemon you squeeze on yourself. Don't get me wrong, it tasted good but it was average at most.

I would most certainly come here again and try something different. I am looking forward to another signing experience.

TRY IT:
Salmon
Pizzas
Industry Salad

DENY IT:
Lemon Chicken (did not taste bad but just average, nothing special)

This place is overrated and overpriced for its mediocre food offerings and barely-there service. While it is beautifully located on the East River, you can't eat the view. The pizza was not great, and the Caesar salad was ok; for $14, I expected more. The relaxing vibe is overwhelmed by the amplified volume of voices bouncing over all the hard surfaces. And on one of the hottest days of the year, why have the enormous windows open?

Great view and proximity to ferry stop, and fine service. But very overpriced for tiny portions of often falsely advertised meals. For instance, the quinoa salad came without quinoa, and the crabcake salad came without lettuce.

Quite disappointed. Had a business dinner here since it was a gorgeous day, with our CFO from Chicago and a new hire. It's a lively place for drinks usually so expect the waitstaff to be busy, but we had a reservation and table service. The lack of attention from our server was really disappointing. It took a long time to get our first drinks and when our hire came a bit later, another 20 mins to get her attention to order his drinks. Then we had to wait even longer and desperately wave her down/catch her eye to get her attention to get an app order in. Overall the food was fine, flat bread and dips and cauliflower but the wait was so excruciating and it was dark and getting so late that we didn't even want to bother ordering dinner and decided to go elsewhere. I don't blame the server, she was very nice, but it's very understaffed. Definitely not somewhere I would ever take clients. Disappointing.

I was at Industry Kitchen 2 nights ago for girls night and we had such a great time! We ordered the dip platter, the cheese platter and the avocado toast. All were delicious! What gave this evening a extra kick was our waiter Shaq! He made our night! What a sweetheart! I may just go back again tonight.
