Always an incredible experience. Wonderful, friendly place. Freshest fish.
Food was average but overloaded with salt. Seating was too close together. Service was good.
It was very good. Not a 10 out of 10, but a solid 8 out of 10. There are other seafood restaurants in the city that I think are WAY better, but they are all much farther away (downtown). But for a local place on the UWS, this is a very good spot. Food was very good, drinks were very good. The wait staff was GREAT.
This place is terrific what it does — and that’s modest, not grand. The oysters are super. The place is clean and airy. The prices are fair. There is a popular happy hour that is a little noisy. It’s a dream choice for those who can enjoy a weekday lunch.
Great neighborhood venue! Caring and attentive staff and delicious food!
Very happy to find this seafood restaurant in our neighborhood on the UWS. Three of us dined. All were very pleased with our meals (appetizers and entrees). I also greatly appreciate NY restaurants with reasonable corkage fees, $20 in this case. The owner of the restaurant was very welcoming. We will definitely return.
We had a marvelous evening there. The happy hour cocktails and oysters are worth the trip. We loved the baked clams as well as all of our main courses.
This was by far the worst restaurant experience I have encountered. The waiter did not understand the menu and pricing. The wrong food order was delivered to our table and removed. The manager was absolutely rude, the bathroom was dirty and the food was only OK.
Aside from the service being a bit slow, it was very good. Definitely will return, great happy hour 7 days a week which also includes food!
Welcome to the neighborhood-the UWS. Very good food at reasonable prices in an acceptable setting--hard to find these days. Please stay around.
Very nice happy hour, delicious clams & oysters! Great margaritas too!
First visit and a delicious surprise. Fabulous fish tacos and clam chowder accompanied by friendly efficient service.
I don’t usually give 5 stars but I was very impressed I ordered the Salmon and I always have to order it medium Rare which I did it came out perfect most other fish places it comes out overdone
Best piece of Salmon in awhile and the sides were perfect
Would go back again and again
First time there. Close to our apartment. Excellent service, very accommodating. Good wine selection, and cocktails. Healthy menu options, well presented and prepared. Yum!
Large portions, delicious smash potatoes , and if you come before 7pm drinks at $5! Will definitely return.
I am sad to say that this meal was terrible. My family was a frequent guest of AG Kitchen and had high hopes. We will not be returning.
We loved the seafood offerings and the food was all excellent. Service was amazingly fast and servers were very pleasant. Will return soon!
we enjoyed our dinner especially our grilled octopus
Absolutely excellent seafood and very hospitable staff. I will be going back
Good food and nice service.
Great food and solid happy hour. Good neighborhood spot! Will return.
I liked the restaurant but hope the service improves.
My husband & I went for thanksgiving because we didn’t want to eat meat but seafood... the food was good, but there is lack of professionalism with the service... the management should train them how to open a bottle and pour + making sure the glasses are clean... also they didn’t have the country bread mentioned on the menu with the squid hummus so they gave focaccia instead when we asked for the bread... overall the food was good just poor service and management..
Living around the corner and having frequented AG Kitchen often, I was excited to try this place out. While the food was pretty good overall, all the other issues overshadowed our experience here. We came in for dinner the Friday after Thanksgiving. The place was pretty crowded and the vibe was pretty good. That and the food were pretty much the only positives. The service was completely off kilter from the waiter, to the bus boys and even the person I presume to be the owner. It seemed as though no member of the wait staff had been trained on how to wait or serve. While the waiter answered some of our questions, it was clear he had never tried most of the dishes on the menu, aside from the burger, which was the only dish he recommended, which was a bit strange for a seafood restaurant. While he was very polite, I don't think he cracked a smile once. The octopus app we got was very good, as was my salmon dish. The person who was bringing over our dishes couldn't have been less friendly if he tried. Not a huge deal, but he looked very stressed and that didn't help add to a nice experience. My husband and his friend were not as complimentary of their dishes (cod and crab cakes) mostly due to portion size for cost. When the busser came to clear the table, he already had some dirty dishes in his hand, and the way he was "clearing" our table, we all sat there convinced he was ready to put more dirty dishes on our table first It was just very strange. It was clear this might have been his first rodeo. When the bill came we found a mistake which promptly corrected. We did find it a bit odd that the manager was walking around in shorts. It just didn't seem to fit in the with the rest of the feel of the place, but then again, I too am all for comfort. There was also an older gentleman we noticed who seemed to be buzzing about the front of the kitchen, who seemed to be adding to confusion.
Just a very uneven experience unfortunately. I hope with some time it improves!
I’ve eaten here three times and will go back. So far, the food and service are uneven. The food ranges from good to very good. The service from acceptable to awful. The comfy, clean restaurant ambiance, to some extent, compensates for current shortcomings. Nice neighborhood place.
Service is not professional. Noise is unbearable. Food is goo.
Great seafood restaurant, nice addition to the neighborhood!
Reasonably priced, tasty dishes. First-rate lobster roll with creme fraiche, great fish and chips. The bluefish e rillettes are a real treat as a starter. And the crab stuffed squash is an inventive, delicious dish.
Very noisy and although the food was tasty, the portions were so small for the money. My daughter had the scallops which came out cold and there was hardly anything on the plate. 3 small scallops for $27? Really? My crab cakes had potato chips as a side dish? Is that the best the chef can do? Had to eat a second meal when I got home. Restaurants like this need to do so much better.
It’s a family joint dressed up as a fun restaurant. Tables close, loud mediocre food and service. One wedge of lemon for a whole fish! A tiny amount of sauce with it & a side of over cooked potatoes that was like cafeteria food.
We had a less than acceptable waiter but management was there and corrected the waiter's deficiencies. The appetizers and main courses were excellent. The preparation of the scallops and cod were outstanding. I hope the neighborhood will support this restaurant
Great menu with good variety and nice happy hour options. The service was very attentive, and the new space is bright and inviting. The list of wines by the glass could use some expansion -- too many French wines for my liking. Overall, a great addition to the neighborhood.
The salmon was ok, but the octopus was overcooked and inedible. $18 for a Manhattan may be the going rate in NYC, but at an upscale locale, not one where the skylights still have paint on the glass because nobody has any attention to detail. Shoddy and slapdash, not high end at all, and prices are not commensurate. I honestly feel ripped off, what we received versus what we paid.
Creative and healthy seafood dishes! Family friendly. Definitely will come again :-)
Very good food and service. Menu is very limited: that said I had the grilled bronzino and it was excellent. There should be more appetizers for the landlubbers. We were lucky to be there for haopy hour as the drinks were great. The owner was present and went over to each table to make sure we had everything and if we were comfortable . The restaurant was packed when we left. Good neighborhood spot.
Fabulous octopus! Wonderful entrees. Will become a go-to place for our hood.
Restaurant is a good addition to neighborhood dining. The food and service are both good. The one drawback that I see is the noise level which is quite energetic.
Don’t Go there Hungry! I have never been served such a small portion in my life. My friend and I both ordered fluke which I've had in countless restaurants. Because fluke is a small flat fish restaurants invariably serve 2 or 3 fillets per portion. Here, we were each served HALF a fillet! And a little scoop of veggies. Even the bread portion was tiny- cut into little square. Hell, if I want to be on a starvation diet I’ll go to Weight Watchers, not a restaurant. The portion was the size of an appetizer at other restaurants. I should have taken a pic but it prob would’ve been too small to see. ;) The fish was also overcooked for such a tiny piece. I went home and had dinner. Ha ha
Underwhelming. We were expecting an amazing meal and dining experience. This did not live up to the hype.
