Great ice cream taste and ingredients!

Went with the wife and a friend and all three flavors we tried were delicious.the caramel, dark chocolate and cheesecake were all amazing. One of the best tasting ice creams around and I've tried many. A bit pricey but well worth it. We went to the location by Times Square on 11th and 44th.

I have a friend who loves ice cream, and I've joined her in the search for the best. As I travel, I try to sample of a few of the best the area has to offer. So far, I've tried three places in New York, and Ample Hills is winning. I had their "Ooey Gooey". It's sweet (which is how... More

Tried on a whim at the Gotham Market, what a sweet succulent surprise. It was a very warm day and I was in search of something cold and sweet. Hands down the best ice cream I have every had, would make the walk from uptown many times over. Glad I stopped, until we meet again.

Ample Hills has two establishment, one in Brooklyn and the other at Gotham West Market, Hell's Kitchen. We went after reading the rave reviews about it on TA. It was incredible. We had the salted crack caramel and some sorptive guinness and chocolate mixture. Believe it or not the guinness/chocolate was very good, but the crack caramel was unbelievably good... More

This place has great ice cream with innovative flavored - my favorite is the salted crack caramel. An unexpected bonus is the roof deck with great sunset views. The staff provides samples, so go early to avoid long lines..,,

After seeing Ample Hills on the Food Networks Americas top 5 ice creams we had to make it a destination on our New York trip. We visited the Gotham West location and let me tell you wow. I bet you I tried every flavour! It was by far the best ice cream I've ever had. My all time favourite is... More

While the main store for Ample Hills Creamery is in Brooklyn, do not despair Manhattanites. There's an outpost at the Gotham West Market at 601 11th Ave. They make the best salted caramel ice cream which I paired with a dark chocolate scoop with a kick of chile--a real mood elevator. Not to mention that you can have your cone... More

There is an amazing selection including vegan, gluten free and more standard ice creams. The chocolate flavour was particularly delicious and it is clearly all made on the premises or locally.

My family ate ice cream here (Nevins and Union location) three times recently and we have mixed feelings about the products. My husband loved the Mexican Hot Chocolate but found the Butter Pecan Brittle far too sweet as I did. My son did not finish the Pistachio because it also had some type of sweet brittle in it. Too bad... More
