The staff was very courteous, despite needing space for a busy luncheon crowd. We had not seen our friend in awhile and our get-together stretched into almost two hours. Love this restaurant.

Usually enjoy this restaurant. This time, for whatever reason, something was "off', not sure if it was the kitchen or the server, probably the server. It took a little more than 30 minutes to get our food after we ordered and when it arrived it was luke warm, further, two special requests had not been fulfilled, an extra order of toast and a side of fruit, not very complicated requests! Tofu scramble was a disappointment, lacked flavor and was little more than plain tofu cubes mixed with some veg.

Waitress was very attentive and even had our cocktails remade since they were watery.

Food was alright. Much better brunch food available nearby for comparable cost.

Be aware there are a good number of families and kids at this location due to the connected hotel. Screaming babies not exactly what I like to experience during brunch.

The Knick is consistently good. It was very crowded for Downtown Dining which made conversation difficult. The salmon salad is always great, as is the mushroom barley soup. The rolls were hot when they came to the table. Yum!

Delicious! I had the hummus appetizer which was over-the-top yummy. I like hummus but I loved their hummus. I also had their chicken pita open faced sandwich which was the best. I would definitely order both again. My client loved her food so much, we are scheduled to come back next month for our meeting.

I had not been to The Knick before so I thought I'd try it during Restaurant Week. The food was very good--generous portions and tasty. It was quite crowded. I was seated in a dark corner, not my favorite (single women get this treatment alot). I moved myself to the table next to me to get into the light rather than ask to be moved.

Service was good until I asked for a bag to put my leftover food box in. The waitress did not bring it even though I asked three times. I got it from the maitre d, at last.
Overall a good place. I will return to try dinner some time.

Wait Staff were great, especially the bartender. However, the management established an idiotic rule of not being able to put tables together on the patio to accommodate group of 6 people. We ended up waiting for almost an hour until one 6-people table was available on the patio.

we had a delicious dinner of tuna tartar and chicken pita along with the burrata for an appetizer and the September 7th dessert. It was all fantastic and that cakes rocks. I did have two issues though. One was that the floor looked dirty with alot of paper and debris on it, it just kind of gave a bad impression when you first walk in and it really should have been cleaned.
The second issue was across the room in the bar there was a birthday party going on and it was very loud with laughing and kind of disrupting. I'm not suggesting that anything was wrong with that but maybe a curtain or something to separate the bar from the restaurant just to provide some privacy for diners who don't want to hear it.

We had lunch and did not receive our food for 50 minutes from the time we arrived very hungry. We were told there were a lot of delivery orders. I would think that they would first take care of the in house patrons who were sitting in a half empty restaurant??

Slow service. When we arrived at 5, the restaurant was about 50-60% full on Mother's Day. We received our entrees at 615. Painful to wait that long. Lipstick stain on water glass. Cold temperature when we arrived at table. Server told manager, improved. Wanted dessert, but just had to go - too long. Disappointed as we used to visit restaurant frequently in the past. Not a good experience, especially given the occasion.

This was a great restaurant for a date with my girlfriend. It was fairly quiet and worth it for the meal. The location and time suggests fancy dress, though it would be acceptable to wear something a little more casual.

It took a long time to get our food, but our waitress told us right away that this would be the case because a big group had half again as many as they had reserved for. It was lovely out on the patio, and had we not had theater tickets we wouldn't have minded at all. As it was, we had to rush a bit.

The servings were huge, especially the French toast. It would have been enough for all four of us, eight big pieces on a serving platter. Perhaps the order size could be cut in half.

Food took close close to hour to arrive, even when tables ordered after us. This small restaurant can’t handle large volumes, so they shouldn’t offer extra seating outside or have large parties
