Industry Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
My go-to spot for lunch and drinks after work. It gets crowded during summer months so you need to get there early. There also appears to be limited number of seats available- I’ve been there often where we literally stand on the roped off platform with no place to rest my drink or my bags, which is uncomfortable. But the food is great for lunch so make a reservation.
Met my family, who drove in from NJ, for an early dinner (for the kids' sake). I was told when I booked the reservation that we'd need to give up the table at 6:30. What we weren't told was that the restaurant would start setting up for an event at 6:30, and that, due to the event, the regular dinner menu was not available. This left us with appetizers, soups, salads, and pizzas. The food we ordered was very good, but the restaurant should have made this clear to anyone making a reservation.
We had a great evening at Industry Kitchen. We ate a bit on the early side (6:30), but that allowed us to watch the sun set and the lights come up on Brooklyn. The view is spectacular. We greatly enjoyed the kale salad, wood-fired pizza, and hanger steak with wonderful potato curls (crispy but not greasy because they aren't fried). We never made it to dessert. Tip: Ask for bread for the table. It was excellent dipping it in oil or eating with some blistered shishito peppers. We'll be back.
Great atmosphere but my braised lamb, although it fell off the bone, was swimming in thick sauce so the taste was a bit hidden. My companions enjoyed their dishes though - grilled lemon chicken and smoked salmon pizza. Music was a bit loud as well - as is the case of so many establishments in NYC. I wish business owners appreciated that people want to converse as they eat... waitstaff was excellent though!
A bit overpriced, the food portions were on the small side and standard drinks were pricier than other bars in the area. They boast a waterfront view yet block off 2/3 of that "best" view for frequently rented out bar seating. We were sat at a table of 12 (bench seating only) for a work party and they put us right next to the make-shift skate park. We were subjected to loud, non-stop noise from skateboarders and dirt bikers attempting to perform tricks on a nearby bench. For those prices, the restaurant should be better about blocking out more of the noise (they could put up a property line barrier of greenery for example) or warn people before they sit down. We were there for the event for over 4 1/2 hrs and the rotation of skaters and bikers was continuous.
The food and the service was excellent. My family and I had a great time and enjoyed everything. The pot of mussels was flavorful and cooked to perfection. It was so good that two of my family members who have never had mussels are now converts. All the appetizers we ordered as well as our entrees came in a timely manor. I would definitely go back.
The overall experience was nothing negivative. I just wasn't happy with the cocktail selection and the main courses. The Grilled Hanger Steak was ok, nothing that special. And the Lamb wasn't good...at all, also it wasn't served like how we saw it online. Our waiter so nice though, I wish he told us his name.
Nice place to eat given the setup (open air, outside, beautiful view of the river) but the food was pretty basic. My wife and I had a chorizo omelette which was tasty but very small and a goat cheese + arugula + wild mushroom pizza, which was disappointing. The toppings were tasty and plentiful, but the dough itself was dry and dense. It tasted like it had been bought at a grocery store...Service was good overall but don't think we will visit again.
My first time dining at Industry Kitchen. The food was very good - nice sized portions. The view is amazing - you can see the boats come and go and great for people watching. Wait staff was pretty good - although a bit hard to find our waiter at times while there. Did not like the loud music - I couldn't hear my friend speaking and we felt like we needed to shout to hear each other. I also was not a big fan of their clear plastic glass wear - too many scratches it looks old, dirty and over used. They should invest in glass which gives a much better impression. Overall, a good experience and I would go back.
Even though the restaurant was packed, we were able to talk and hear each other - always a delight when it's a friends' reunion. Service was amazing, terrific waiter (Josh) and the setting is unbeatable. Only down was that we had to request bread, and that was an extra charge but we'll all definitely return there. In fact, one friend reserved the same place for a date later that evening.
The setting and views could not be more pleasant, but the food was bland at best. The industry salad with fennel was the best thing. The pizzas were undercooked and flavorless. The grilled cauliflower was flavorless. Even the potatoes with cheese (how do you mess that up?) were flavorless.
I suppose with lovely open space and a view of downtown Brooklyn means that the food can be mediocre. So know what you're paying for: the setting and views, not the food.
