    Outdoor seating for two plus our dog was great. Po’Boy fish sandwich was crispy, hot and salty and I enjoyed it. My Sailor Sour cocktail was pretty to look at and refreshing to drink and I liked the blend of berry, ginger beer and alcohol. ($15 I think!) Husband was more rueful than I (but not usually!) and he found the ‘grandma’s meatballs dish with the polenta’ off the mark. Polenta was bland, and the meatballs weren’t typical—more shredded meat consistency than a compact sturdy meatball—so a negative for him. $3 add on for tots or fries with the mains—not cool, when the mains we ordered were $17-$21. Inattentive waitress was the worst because she never came back around after food was delivered. No one checked to see if we were ‘fine,’ or not. Plus, since no one checked on us, husband could not order another drink. In fact, a different waitress gave us our bill and took our payment. To close this up, we won’t be returning because one of us liked it and one of us didn’t.

    Drinks and ambiance were good. We were not seated on time for reservation. Had three different servers across our experience which was odd. Was nice that we were not rushed out, though.

    I’m from out of town and had the lovely duty of finding a restaurant for my friends and I within an hour or two of going on a Friday night (ugh). This was one of the only few restaurants that had the seating availability at the time we desired and I couldn’t have been happier to stumble across it. We sat outside; the vibe and our server was great (I wish I remembered his name). The food and drinks were good as well. I had the Mac and cheese skillet, which was green and fun lol, as well as there wings.

    Sunday Brunch. Drinks were good. Menu has changed since our last visit. Bistro salad was not as good as the Harvest salad and vinaigrette was too heavy on the vinegar. Short rib hash was not as good as last time. We probably won’t go back.

    Always good - consistent. Lots of choices, so it's great for when you're choosing a place to accommodate different tastes - everyone will find something delicious. Excellent variety of local beers on tap, and always a nod to New Orleans on the menu.

    This was my second experience at Handcraft Kitchen and Cocktails and I am so glad I returned. This place is becoming a staple in my list of NYC bars and restaurants. The food was delicious and came out from the kitchen pretty quickly. Our server was great and very attentive and the drinks were delicious. We sat inside as it was a rainy evening and the ambiance is perfect for a romantic date night or a quieter girls night with some friends! Absolutely recommend!

    We went for Happy Hour and got cocktails for $10 as well as 4 of the 2 for 1 $16 shareable bites. We ordered the Mac & Cheese (which was seriously outstanding), the Guacamole with chips (absolutely delicious), the Bang Bang Cauliflower (amazing) and the Tater Tots (very flavorful but heavily seasoned and might be too salty for some people).

    THIS PLACE IS AMAZING FOR HAPPY HOUR !!!!!!!! We got a margarita pitcher, the Chicken and Biscuit Sliders, the Hand-cut fries, the Bang Bang cauliflower and the Mac and Cheese. Not only was everything so yummy and a good portion, but it was all for a great price !! I went with my friends for my birthday on 2/15/2022 and our wonderful waitress, Gabi, absolutely made our night !! She was super kind and attentive to our table and even helped my friends surprise me with a tasty dessert that had a huge sparkler candle on it. Everyone else was super kind and they followed COVID protocol. Would highly recommend !!!

    Pretty bad. The waiter forgot about our order and once we finally got our food, it was cold. They had completely forgotten about my friends meal so she had to wait another half hour to eat. They never apologized for their mistake, super condescending.

    The place is always busy, but for good reason: Fantastic cocktails. One of the few bars in that strip that does cocktails properly. Food is better than average for sure. Try the bang bang cauliflower. It can be loud on the weekends because they bring in a DJ. Not a fan of that, and definitely off brand in my opinion, but whatever. So if you're into that, go late on weekends. But this is a go-to for a casual date (that never disappoints) and a place to grab a bite that won't break the bank. This is not a sports bar, so don't come in here expecting to see big screens and order Bud Lite's. Not that type of spot.

The food was delicious - loved the bang bang cauliflower and tater tots! The beverages were on point too! Will come back to try out the dinner menu. Cheers!

    The food and drinks were really good. The only compliant I would have is that I ordered Hummus as an appetizer and the server didn’t put it in the order so we never had it. Another thing was that we got the table right at the entrance and we felt kinda like we were in the middle of everybody’s way. Also, they let the door open and even that it wasn’t very cold outside at some point we were cold but anything crazy !

    Loved the food here!! Amazing brunch— chicken & waffles was amazing and the hash was good as well. Mimosas were $12 for one or unlimited for $25 — kind of a lot so there’s better places for drinking. The waitress was a little bit rude … we even had to ask for more water twice.

    If you are looking for a spot to watch the football games look no further. Got there during brunch so the menu was on point and bottomless drinks were on target. Price for all was very affordable. You won’t break the bank on this. The staff were very welcoming and are very eager to please their customers. I would totally come back again!
