We dined as a party of 4 at Tom Colichio's Craft restaurant, a small storefront located on E. 19th St. just off Park Ave. Reservations were made a surprisingly 6 short days prior to our requested date. While making the reservations, the receptionist asked if there were any food allergies, which I thought was a very smart protocol. We arrived... More

This place has exceeded my expectations! The ambiance and decor is really lovely. It's classy, beautiful and peaceful, which really makes this place perfect for a special occasion. I was amazed by the service of our waiter! He was really incredible, and I don't say that very often. The menu and the food was simply amazing. Everything tasted delicious and... More

We booked Craft at the last minute. We had a really nice booth seat to the back of the retaurant. Its a typical bustling / loud Manhattan spot. Service was very good and the staff were attentive. Starters and mains were deliicous with some interesting combinations. It did feel like a work venue, not sure why...maybe the decor but it... More

I was more impressed by Craft on this occasion than when I last visited (4 years ago). The service is very good: just the right degree of attentiveness and not rushed. The food was delicious. It's not over-elaborate, but everything is well prepared. I had the venison loin with a side order of brussels sprouts and my guest had roast... More

We were very excited to visit Craft. Our meal there was lovely, but didn't quite meet our admittedly high expectations. We started with the Trotter, which was delicious. This was followed by a Fettucini, which was entirely forgettable. Sorry, I just really don't remember it! For our entrees, we chose the Short Rib, and the Pork Porterhouse. The pork was... More

Go to Craft if you're looking for one thing done right. You will not get an elaborately composed dish, but you will get a classic cooked correctly. I had scallops with Brussels sprouts and a glass of amazing red zin (the wine list is truly impressive) and a fantastic chocolate soufflé. Expect to pay quite a lot, but the quality... More

This is our favorite restaurant in NYC by far. The staff is great and the place is well managed. It is not stuffy and the food is tasty. Last night we had a few items that we had never tried before. I highly recommend the Pork Shank as an entree. The orecchiette with a ragu sauce was a perfect shared... More

We ate at Craft during our New Years stay in NYC and it was even better than I expected. The service was outstanding, everyone was so pleasant and we had a great table that gave us a little privacy. We had the pork shank, short ribs, gratin potatoes and shiitake mushrooms. They were all delicious and went amazingly together. I... More

This was my follow up to my excellent meal at Heritage in Las Vegas. I was moving my daughter to NY so made a reservation to sample the food where the empire first began. The staff were very professional and remained well organized throughout our service. The appetizers and main courses where enjoyed by all. I thought that the selections... More

Ate there in a party of 4 to celebrate my wife's birthday. Food was delicious and portions generous. Service excellent and decor lovely. We had the pig trotter and octopus appetizers; mixed mushrooms and swiss chard sides. Main courses were: Amish chicken, bream, monkfish, and I had the short ribs. The person who ordered the chicken said it was the... More
