This was honestly nicer than I expected. It’s a pretty nice yet casual place to get a solid good bite with a nice view.

The waitress was not good. The men that bring your food and bus the tables were excellent. Waitress never brought the drinks so I asked the man who brought our food and he got them for us. Waitress brought drinks while we were already eating n said she wanted to wait to bring drinks but forgot then saw we already had one. Never came back again had to ask the hostess to find her so we could get our check!

Food was good, vibes are great! Service seemed a bit understaffed. Took about 20 mins for someone to take our drink order, but after that everything was prompt!

Truffle fries were not crispy at all and the ahi tuna nachos, while tasty were a bit hard to eat. Larger tuna pieces would have been a better execution. The ambiance outside is great and the service was pretty good.

Very efficient and prompt service. Great waterfront location. Food is decent and good value. Starters/small plates are pricey and not as nice. Overall great Manhattan experience.

Just had a lovely lunch with two out of town guests. It was lovely.

There was a tiny service glitch at the beginning, and we had three servers introduce themselves as our server until we had one that stuck around. He was very good, so it wasn’t a massive big deal. We waited for nothing.

Great food and ambience

Even when the restaurant business is suffering from a staff crunch, Industry Kitchen has an extraordinarily friendly and helpful team. And that's just the beginning of a lovely meal that includes wood oven pizza, fresh salad, and inventive small plates all served in front of a fantastic view. I love the pinwheel sausage and the hot honey pizza, but just about anything goes with that yummy frozen Aperol spritz.

As one of the few outdoor dining places for lunch in the financial district, Industry Kitchen is a favorite of my clients. I've been here several times and the food, service, and atmosphere has always been great.

We were looking for somewhere to eat on the water with a bit of a view and Industry Kitchen delivered on that, but we should have realized that it would come at a cost. The cost being overpriced mediocre food. It was fine. Fine. But not fine for what you pay. The food was not bad; it just...wasn't that good. Combined with the usual overpriced mediocrity you tend to get at rooftop bars, it solidified my feeling that you have to choose between feasting your eyes and feasting your belly. That said, we opted for entrees/small plates rather than pizza. You could certainly go the pizza route and not feel totally gouged. But, honestly, we're gonna skip places like this from now on and stick to spots that have a reputation for great food -- regardless of the view.

Had the kale /brussel sprout salad with chicken . The salad was good but the $10 i paid for the addition of chicken was a big mistake. The chicken was as dry as sawdust and almost uneatable. The kitchen should not be serving chicken breast that is so overdone that is cracking . It unfortunately ruined my meal and i didn't have time to wait for another piece of chicken. My guest said the octopus was very nice however.

The ambiance of Industry Kitchen’s outdoor seating is nice. The inside looks pretty nice too. But my pepperoni pizza was ok. There was barely any sauce on the pizza. Also, the drinks are overpriced and I found a curly piece of hair in my drink smh. Brian, our server, was nice though. Lastly, it would help if there were candles or lamps on the table for when it gets dark out!

We were at Industry Kitchen on a cool evening in September. Fortunately, we got a table indoors. However, I was still cold. I am not a fan of the open air dining. I would have been freezing outside. We enjoyed our meal and the service started slow but improved. Come prepared with a jacket as most of the seating is outside. Perhaps as it gets colder there will be heaters. We may have hit it before they were prepared for the cool weather. The view was beautiful.

Industry Kitchen has great views of the East River. At the moment, even the “indoor” seating is more outdoor, with the wall/window on the river side being entirely open.

We usually get pizza here, and miss some of our favorites that have been removed from the menu.

Dining and Food Experience was nice. A little pricey for the flavor but on par for the area and environment.

Be Aware: Bathroom is shared experience with multiple stalls. So a man and women can be in the same bathroom at the same time. Because if it’s proximity to the Financial district, there are many more men than women which made our guest extremely uncomfortable.

Food and service was excellent. However, since it was outside, it was a little buggy. And the seating was a little hard (literally - wooden bench). :o)

I had to ask four different staff members to get me a high chair. It took 20 minutes for a server to get to our table and take our order. Was the restaurant busy? Not at all. I believe that there were more staff than patrons. Food portions were relatively very small especially for the price that they were charging customers. Also, the server ended up getting us the wrong beer choice. I still tipped them 18% even though the food and service was trash. They really need to do something about the pigeon situation.
