Great server who knew the menu really well and recommended tasty dishes with our dietary restrictions. Hostess was also super friendly and efficient. We will be back.

The location can't be beat if you are looking for a meal with a view. That being said, prices were quite high for the value of the food, so just keep that in mind.

The service was way behind. It took us 45 + minutes to get our appetizer. We asked for water refills twice and that took 20 minutes. The food (steak and chicken) was so very dry. And unfortunately when we asked our server any questions he had no clue.

Helloooo summer, ok so it's May and its still spring. But dining here at Industrial kitchen, enjoying the breeze off the East river, the beautiful views of the Brooklyn skyline, and happy people in their trendy summer wear, I felt like it was pre-pandemic summer. An actual sigh of contentment escaped my lips as I sat at my outdoor table. The table decided on small plates and cocktails. Let me tell you, it would've been worth it just for the drinks and ambience. Between the four of us and two rounds of drinks we tried most of their drink specialties and ALL were great. Being a whiskey girl, my favorite was the Caribbean Smooth, a surprisingly refreshing concoction of rum and my favorite smoky scotch, Laphroiag. We started with the mussels. They were absolutely perfect in their white wine garlic sauce. My favorite was the octopus. Sometimes grilled octopus can be tough and chewy, but that was definitely not the case here! It was tender and very flavorful, in a olive-forward preserve with a touch of a spicky kick. The lamb meatballs defiantly tasted like lamb. The distinct, almost gamey, lamb flavor was not overpowered by the marinara sauce. It was a bit greasy, but overall quite good. The avocado toast was fresh and peppery. That shrimp in herb roasted garlic butter, whoa, just amazing. There was a 90 min table limit, but with the fast service by the friendly waitstaff we had no problem finishing our meal without feeling rushed. It was a wonderful experience.

Great setting, very good service, excellent food and drink. The menu offers a wide array of choices from small plates to pizza to entrees. I had the tuna tartare and it was very good but not among the best I've had. The Allagash on tap was excellent and well chilled. You can't beat the atmosphere, right on the Easy River near the Seaport. A lot of outdoor seating and the indoor seating has good air circulation.

We arrived about an hour before closing and the wait staff was clearly trying to shuffle us out from the time that we arrived there, we felt rushed the entire time. The waiter forgot my drink and we had to wait so long to catch him, he would disappear for a long time and we would have to ask any other person to help us. There was also a weird musty odor in the restaurant.

Went for Mother’s Day but on Saturday for a more chill atmosphere. The food was pretty good but the prices were a little much, even by the area’s standards ($21 for a TINY cheese plate with two small squares of an okay blue cheese, two small wedges of a hard cheddar and a couple of small slices of moz). The banana pecan waffles were outstanding although the big breakfast was just good (I just a good chef by their eggs and these were just okay).

The waiter was very friendly, attentive and helpful.

They attempted to seat us on small backless bar stools, which I couldn’t do because of my arthritis. We ended up on wooden benches outside with a small table heater that didn’t do much.

We ate here last night. Service was terrible. We had to flag down the water for drinks. Then again for food. It was not busy either. Then they SHUT THE LIGHTS OFF at 10:15 when their website clearly says open until 11 on Fridays. Food was good but won't go back.

Truffle pizza was burnt and very mild flavor of truffle. Buffalo pizza was just dough drenched in hot sauce- too spicy and too watery. Octopus was way too chewy. Would not go back.

The strength of Industry Kitchen is its waterfront location. Lovely to sit outdoors there. Our food was good but not inspiring. Sadly, the decaf coffee I ordered was undrinkably weak, and while our server was friendly, we had to ask for everything like salt and pepper, extra water, and even a spoon to stir with. I'd go back for the ambience alone. I hear the pizzas are great, but they're not in my diet.

Waiter was somewhat terse. Food was very good but the new menu is not as good as the previous one. When I asked the server if they still had the floating garlic bread available (scrumptious), he replied "new chef, new menu" and walked away. Nice spot by the river but they may wish to rethink the menu, tidy up the outside area, (there seemed to be a lot of old furniture items stashed at the side of the restaurant) and revisit customer service training.

The service from servers is not existing, almost took an hour to get a server taking our order. Practically the servers do not understand the concept of customer service and the fact that their income comes from the clients coming to this place

We wanted to love this place since we were from out of town and they put us in this cute little outdoor “ greenhouse”. However it started off pretty bad. We ordered cocktails that came after about 20 mins of waiting with lipstick stains on both the glasses. The server took twice that time to come back to see how they were. 34$ steak arrived to the table cold. Bill was left and never came back to get the card after waiting a half hour we dropped cash and left. Ambiance was beautiful just wish the service was up to par.

Chef Carl’s new menu was absolutely amazing. Every bite of food from apps, entrees to dessert was incredible. It was inspired and truly delicious. Our server Nico was top notch, incredibly friendly and informative. My friend and I had a great experience and will absolutely be back. We came for dinner and can’t wait to come back to try brunch! Industry kitchen was 10s across the board!

The owner was on premises and welcomed us cheerfully and the servers reflect his friendly and positive attitude. During these times the very large amount of outdoor dining space (really outdoor) is very welcome. The location provides a nice vibe as you can people watch as they enjoy the Seaport walkway.

I made a reservation in advance explaining that it was my birthday and we were driving into New York City for a special meal. I requested an igloo, which we did get and he did put a heater in it for us. You can’t beat the location and the view. And I absolutely loved our heated igloo.
We met our waitress and a few minutes later we were told she had left and were given a new waiter. He was very friendly, didn’t rush us and answered our questions.
For appetizers we got the crabcake which was delicious but very small for the price and just one of them. The cheeseboard was especially fun because it had a honeycomb on it! The bread that they served with it was nothing to write home about. It wasn’t warm it wasn’t crisp it wasn’t soft it just was! There were about four little olives, a small amount of three different cheeses, one was goat so I wouldn’t touch it LOL. I liked the soft spreadable cheese because it had pistachios in it. I liked the spicy oil the olives were in with the contrast of the sweet honey.
My husband got the wood fired pizza. He said it was good but it wasn’t anything exceptional. I did not like how my branzino was served at all. I didn’t finish it. I ordered the curly fries because the fish didn’t come with anything except a frisée salad with no dressing. They weren’t very tasty. .I had a cocktail called Summer House, it was tasty! So I had another!
The waiter brought our check with no mention of my birthday. I thought just maybe I’d get a little something special but no!
I would maybe return for the location.

Service is really slow here - we were seated for over 15 min before anyone came over to take our drink order. Service in general was slow all night. They were also out of all pizzas, making the menu extremely limited.

Great ambiance and great staff. Was busy so it took a while for them to get to us, but once they did service was good. Food was not good, especially at those pieces. Absolutely everything was “I can’t cook so I will salt the ahit out of everything”. I mean, who in the world puts salt on scallops. It honestly felt like everything came out of packaging.

The restaurant got a new chef and the menu is not great.
You can’t even order a salad with protein.
The chef “apparently” refuses to do substitutions. The entire new menu is just disappointing especially when going in a group and trying to order a few items for the table. The only decent share is the street corn appetizer.

The servers are great though!!!

We sat outside by the water and we loved it. Great view, great food and great service! The Lobster Benedict was delicious. They have these cute outdoor mini greenhouses that you can sit in that we’ll have to try out next time. It gets busy so make sure you make a reservation.

The location, with a river-front view, would alone be worth the trip but additionally the food is great and the service is the most friendly and helpful I’ve experienced in a long time. This is a perfect place for brunch!
