What strikes me most is absolutely outstanding and friendly customer service, food amazing cooked to perfection, a lot of little extras that made us smile - one of them we were given their home-made muffins for breakfast. The only but - but this is nothing to do with the restaurant is that they couldn't help us to book the taxi... More

Excellent food & amazing service. Every time something needed to be taken or brought to the table , at least 2-3 servers were taking care of it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Pretty place, pretty good food , pretty pricey,nice service. And then this happened; the bill came, the Amex card accepted, the charge on the card was almost twice the actual bill. It was corrected of course but the waiter did not leave me with the feeling that this was an accident. But it probably was. Yet there was this feeling.... More

My husband and I ate dinner here early September 2014. We had tried it when it first opened and were very disappointed, but decided to give it another try years later. What a mistake. Beware of long-brown-haired waitress with glasses--she thinks you are there to serve her. But there's more. The menu is so complicated with no descriptions, these poor... More

The staff and service were spot on. Craft had Old Raj gin at the bar and a knowledgeable bar staff. For dinner I had the butter bacon salad. The salad was good but the rest of the dinner was remarkable. The scallops were some of the best I have ever had. Butternut squash side dish was light and fluffy with... More

We were in New York for just a few days and enjoyed several great restaurants. This was expected to be the best just on the name and chef. Chicken and pork loin were average at best. Not a lot of flavor. The brussels sprouts were the best part of the meal. Service was good, not great.

It started with the greeting. We had a reservation and the hostess said she would show us to our table but before she could a manager said, "No, you can wait ate bar." When I said she said we could be seated he gave me the evil eye. Food was very good. Angel hair pasta superb. Short ribs fair. I... More

I have been to Craft numerous times and hesitate to tell how good it is - I may not be able to make a reservation if everyone knows about it. The pastas, in particular the agnolotti, are always superb as is the shortrib. The risotto is usually extremely good. The vegetables are works of art. The potato gratin is outstanding.... More

Perhaps it was just fated in the alignment of the stars. Wonderful setting, charming and intelligent service, amazing food--everything came together perfectly. The short ribs and chicken were outstanding; the nettles gratin and the carrots among the best vegetables we've ever tasted; the mushroom assortment interesting and very good (though the one part of the meal that reminded us that...
