I have been to ABC Kitchen on several occasions and am impressed each and every time. It continues to surpass my expectation. We walked in without reservations and were promptly seated at a bistro table in the bar area. Without a lot of fuss, the food was fabulous. We had homemade chicken and pork sausage with whole-grain mustard; and kasha... More

A friend of mine recomended me this restaurant.... what can I say. One of the most delicious dinner I ever try. Pasta and the chicken was delicious. Salad are very small, better try another thing... Is not cheap but I recommend it.

Been coming to Manhattan for years and always try the new "in" spots that will satisfy my foodie self. I'm going to keep it short and sweet - ambience is pretty, acoustics suck, it is very loud and you have to yell to hear someone across from you, the food was delicious, I had the lobster and my other mates...

We were looking for a special dinner in New York. We usually make a special evening at a place called blue hill where they have farm to table meals and kind of take their food and dining seriously. At blue hill every course is carefully considered and presented. We should have gone there again. I usually stick with the tried... More

Each time we come here, we enjoy our cocktails, the vibe and the service but can't quite understand the food being the way it is - a sort of second thought. Like someone throwing a great party, and suddenly realizing the guests need to be fed after they've arrived. The warm salad ranges from being very good to just ok,... More

We ate here at a crowded lunch time. Wait staff was very attentive. Gazpacho & beets were perfect. Do not waste your time with the pizza - not very good. I enjoyed it - but not as great as the hype

I almost walked past the ABC Kitchen despite having the address in my hand because it is so subtle from the outside. But once you get in the door you realize this place is special. From the friendly people at the front to the people at your table you are treated as a welcome guest no matter the nature of... More

We came here for a meal on our honeymoon and did not leave disappointed. We didn't have starters but based on seeing others, they looked great. My wife had lobster and I had the biggest chicken known to man on a bed of spinach. Topped off with house fries. We finished with ice creams and sorbets and a little cupcake... More

I am so happy we choose to eat here. We had a reservation somewhere else and made a last minute decision to dine here. The food was excellent. Every dish was better than the next. Only problem was we ordered too much and couldn't finish everything. No room for the desserts which are supposed to be excellent. Loved that they... More
