We loved recent stay in Hell's Kitchen. What a vibrant neighbourhood and easily walkable to Chelsea, Times Square, Central Park, etc. The abundant bars, restaurants and theatres are great.. So is catching the sunset while sitting at the edge of the Hudson. Lovely.

I read the reviews before heading over to this restaurant and thought I'd give it a try. I like they give you free corn bread triangles with black bean dip.. it was really good! I refrained from licking the bowl. haha. For dinner, I had the Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass with Grilled Chayote, Sweet Plantain Puree, and Salsa Verde.... More

I go to NYC several times a year. Tried Hells Kitchen last year when staying on the West Side near Javits. Liked it a lot last time--even more this time. Convinced some business associates we should go there (a longer walk than they wanted), but were all glad we went. Casual, friendly, great service and terrific food. Ate at the... More

Ordered starters and main dish, the duck confit was really tasty! The tenderloin and the sea bass was perfect! The food was not to spicy either. The service was really good, try it out!

The restaurant looks pretty average inside - nothing standout about the decor or really pulling you in, so I wasn't expecting much (even with the name). Our frozen margaritas were delicious - always a good start. We thought we were taking a chance with the ceviche but it was surprisingly good. I would order it again. The sea bass was... More

Liked it all - portions are small so don't expect Olive Garden. Small place, right in the thick of Hell's Kitchen scene. Had the shrimp avocado tacos. Delish.

...if you're naming yourself after a neighborhood. Great food, mood, vibe and lighting during our 8:30 PM visit on a Saturday night. Close to the theaters so this is a great find for the future. Let's talk about the food. (Quick note: if you are vegetarian, there are a some good items here.). I started with an impressive mini chicken... More

Everything was fresh and delicious. Mexican fusion really works for me. Really good drinks too, though we stuck to basics like margaritas and mojitos.

Located on the corner 9th and 39th Street, was very convenient from our Hotel. Friendly staff with a quite simple menu with choices to suit most - Italian slant but not exclusively so. A good place for a quick straightforward meal nicely presented.

Whenever I'm in New York, I usually have one of my meals at Hell's Kitchen. It's like Mesa Grill, only more casual and cheaper. This time, I had the ancho crusted tuna tostadas, which were yummy, and the grilled sirloin, which was one of the best sirloins I have ever had. It was so flavorful. We went late on a... More
