had gone there as MYneighborhood bar 2 times but the 3rd just turnedme off: JUST LOST MY BET FRIEDN THAT MORNIGN TO LUNG CANCER AND WAS HOPEING TO GRAB A DRINK AT THE BAR BUT THE BAR TENDER THOUGHT MY GRIEF WAS "INTOXICATION" --LOL-- I WISH!! They refused me a drink -- didn't even give me a chance to request a ginger ale and a stuPid hotdoG before she called her"boss" to help me be thrown out! I was NOt drunk when I walked in and obviously was floored with the attitude -- NEVER GO IN THERE IF YOU NEED A PLACE TO SETTLE YOURSELF DOWN.TO END THIS: FUNNY HOW MANY UNDER AGE KIDS I WOULD FIND THERE BUT NEVER SAID ANYTHING ---SHOULD'VE , RIGHT? MANY HAVE BOASTED TO ME WHEN THEY WOULD SMOKE OUTSIDE THE BAR HOW THEY WERE 19 ETC. YES I SHOULD HAVE SAID SOMETHING BUT THE AFTERNOON WEEKDAY BARTENDER SEEMED SO "SMART" THOUGHT ITS HER JOB TO DO SO??? NO? WELL A FORMAL COMPLAINT IS GOING OUT THX TO YOU BEING SO STRICT WITHA GREIVING PATRON. GOOD LUCK. BUT NEXT TIME SOMEONE COMES IN THAT YIYU THINGK "WAS DRINKIN" , WHAT OCCUPATION ARE YOU IN? ASK ALL THER, I WALKED OUT ON MY OWN 2 FEET, WITHOUT ONE WORD TO YOU BUT "THANK YOU,MA'AM!
My friends and I had Brunch at the Crooked Knife on our last day in the city and it was perfect. My friend's original order was wrong and they were so helpful and friendly and fixed it immediately with no delay. We loved our food and our experience. It is also a great location close to 5th avenue. I would highly recommend it.
We loved the food and ambiance and will be coming back for more. The salmon entree was excellent.
Our first visit was a great experience. Will surely be back.
we didin't know what to expact but it was a great evening; the food was delicious and the waiter very kind and helpfull. We enjoyed being there and definitly going back once we are in Manhattan again!!
perfect sunday brunch. our server was super attentive and generous. so nice to go to brunch and not be rushed out!
This poor recommendation is for the 30th Street location of Crooked Knife only. The food was meh and the service was horrible. It took forever to see a server; and once we got our food, they didn't check on us and we had to hunt them down for the check. And then I ended up taking my check to the host because I was tired of waiting for the server to come back to get the check. Also, the seating was quite cramped where they put us.
Went here with a date/friend, having been to the location on 14th street. Interior is unique, not sure how to describe it, but very relaxed. Restaurant was not busy this night (weeknight) so it was quiet but I don't imagine that was the case. FOOD WAS SO GOOD. I was disappointed the portobello (ty spell check) burger was out that night, so i instead opted for the vegetable lasagna which was outstanding. So good, even though it was a hot summer evening in NYC. This was my first time at this location but have been to the 14th street spot at least 3 times. Food and vibe is totally great, service is usually fine. I'm sure I'll be back.
It started off nice. Then my order came out wrong and the waitress never asked if everything came the right way. I made a reservation so we would have to rush or fight for a seat and before our plates and drinks were finished multiple waiters were telling us we had to leave because the next reservation had arrived. We were prepared to order more drinks and food but were never given the chance especially because we were told we had to leave. Very disappointed. Very limited menu. Very put off. Would not return or recommend.
This was a very fun brunch spot.
