Food portions were exceptionally small. Our bill was $500 for three people, $600 with tip. We did have quite a few cocktails, but I was not particularly full when I left. All that said, the service remains to be exceptional and the cocktail menu is divine and never disappoints.

Food was well executed.

The service however was the highlight. Ji, our sommelier, steered us in the right direction with wine and had a beautiful pairing with the tasting menu.

Well done.

Outstanding. We had the smaller tasting menu: the “Short Story”, six courses consisting of various elements. Every single mouthful brought a new and exciting taste sensation, the flavours were fantastic, clearly the ingredients were fresh and extremely well prepared.
The surroundings and atmosphere was quite informal and very comfortable - quality food in casual surroundings. In keeping with the New Zealand food style, we enjoyed the Kiwi wine on the menu by the glass. Good friendly but professional service.
Due to business and travel commitments we are fortunate to eat regularly in top restaurants worldwide, so can compare this to the best - and it more than measures up. All in all a great dining experience.

Fantastic meal!
I personally liked the casual feel of the restaurant and enjoyed the music. Service was very friendly and not intrusive.
Food was delicious. A lot of rich dishes and we struggled to finish the long story but each plate was original and tasty.
A great way to celebrate my birthday!

The food was very disappointing. The flavors didn’t go well together for a lot of the dishes on the “short story” 6 course tasting menu. The ora king salmon with apple, sorrel and yogurt was bland and unappetizing. The wild striped bass was flavorless and the 62 day aged beef left much to be desired. The sweet potato with orange, chestnut and coffee dessert tasted so awful I couldn’t bring myself to eat more than 2 bites.

However, the service was impeccable and the cocktails were delicious. I wouldn’t dine here again but would stop by for drinks at the bar.

Technically flawless and inventive....every ingredient had a purpose but would have appreciated just a touch extra. Was missing just that little oomph to push it over the edge to other Michelins we've visited.

I can't say the food/taste/quality/amount was bad, however for the price, I expected it to be outstanding, in which it was not. I would not recommend it to try if the price remains the same.

Overall experience at The Musket Room was wonderful. I would absolutely return on another special occasion or date. I've never had the chance to taste New Zealand cuisine before, so the flavors here were often new combinations. We had the short story tasting menu, and I left feeling just satisfied enough with the amount of food given. Service was attentive throughout the meal, not intrusive, and informative. The setup and ambiance of the restaurant was my favorite. It's just dark enough to be a cozy spot for a date, you can have a conversation privately enough without feeling like you have to yell over the volume of other tables, and the spacing of tables is just right so you don't feel crowded.

it was a lovely experience -- exquisite presentation, some unexpected combination of flavors, and nice portions -- but the sauces were a bit on the salty side. still unsure what was new zealand about the meal other than some of the main ingredients.

This was one of our best dining experiences in NYC. We were late by over half hour, and only had about 45 minute to finish the meal as we had to pick up our son from his practice. The restaurant kept our reservation, sat us down immediately and served us their awesome tasting menu so quickly and professionally that we were completely blown away. Food was great, service excellent (very friendly, and natural). We will be back 100%!

I felt that the Person cooking and presenting the dishes was more of an artist then a chef! I wasn't wowed by the food! My husband and I partake in tastings all over Manhattan and this restaurant is on our Do not return list.....not one dish was good enough to come back for! But the atmosphere was quite special and the Staff was very attentive! I caught one of the managers pouring some of our wine for himself which was completely inappropriate....he said he wanted to make sure it was OK since it wasn't a corked bottle but a screw top...well the time to do that is when you open and smell and then have a small taste while at our table! Not halfway into our bottle you go pour yourself a few inches of our wine and down it! WHO DOES THAT???

As a Kiwi visiting New York for the weekend, I was very keen to try this must talked about restaurant. The food was amazing- a taste sensation & portions not too big. Amazing wines & great service. I was meeting a girlfriend that I had not seen for 12mths, so lots to catch up on. Although the restaurant vibe was energetic, we could still have a great '3 hour' conversation. I'll be recommending this to everyone!

one of the worst dining experiences. Way over-priced, esp. the wine list. A retail bottle for 20.00 goes for 72.00 on the list. Outrageous. Size of appetizers is a joke....Wines glasses were lifted off the table before we had a chance to decide to have wine or not...had drinks first before appetizers...and drinks took a verity long time in coming. A most unpleasant experience.
