I thought I had made a reservation but I goofed. They were able to seat us anyway. A very fresh farm to table menu. The service was wonderful and the food delicious. A very popular restaurant for those looking for organic and farm to table.

Located underneath the old ABC Carpet shop (now a fascinating store selling bizarre furniture and other bits and pieces for the home) the restaurant is large but has a good lively atmosphere. Best of all was the food (interesting choices well presented and very tasty) - probably the best we ate on this trip to the US. Service was good... More

Like everywhere in the world, you just have to get lucky sometimes, and this was one of those times. It was a Thursday night, and my party and I were caught out with no reservations for dinner because we had been shopping and lost track of the time. We had the idea to try Gramercy Tavern, but heard it was... More

Despite an extraordinary problem in making a reservation and a packed house when we got there, no one in our party of four was impressed with this restaurant. It started with the uncomfortable seats which after several tries I realized that the back was just not shaped to hold my suit jacket. Following some advice by other reviewers we tried... More

Made reservations 4 weeks in advance for Saturday lunch. Unfortunately the hype did not match the experience. Very overpriced for lunch. Calimari was totally uninspired. Did love the crab toast. Bloody Mary was so spicy it burnt my mouth and I like spicy foods. The gang approach to waiting felt a bit out of control. I lost track of how... More

Service is 10/10. Food is 10/10. Atmosphere is 10/10. Great place for brunch. A bit pricey but it is all relative. Highly recommended!

We had a large party (13) booking for a combined birthday on Saturday 30 Aug. Liaison with the restaurant to organise a fixed menu, wines and seating was professional. The table was well set up and the food was described by nearly everyone as fresh and well put together and being extremely tasty. Service was generally good although wine refills... More

ABC Kitchen is a great restaurant to visit on a special occasion assuming you have made a reservation, which typically needs to be done weeks in advance. The casual cool atmosphere immediately puts you at ease, as does ordering one of the speciality cocktails (the margarita is excellent). The tuna sashimi is sprinkled with ginger and is one of my...

I had lots of lunches and brunches here and it was always top notch cuisine. Not once they deceived me. Highly recommend if you can get a table.Only 4 stars because of the service. Too pretentious for me. Especially the hostesses... Decor is interesting too.

We had the lunch fixed price. Great menu, interesting and tasty. Nice vintage dinner wear and good shabby chic atmosphere, service friendly but not too much. Only complaint was that we had a long wait for dessert, but we didn't mind too much. Would definitely recommend.
