“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

What a superb dining experience. The atmosphere was relaxed yet sophisticated at the same time. Our waiter and his assistant were very attentive. We appreciated the fact that they were honest enough to tell us that salads and side dishes were large enough to serve two. Our main dishes were simple yet delicious. We enjoyed the sorbet sampler and home made sugared cider donuts (served warm) for dessert. Both were fantastic. The wine list was excellent. What an exceptional evening.

Service was exceptional, meal was fabulous. Definitely earns every positive review. Each dish was memorable and yet not over wrought. Loved this place.

“Excellent, but . . .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Don't get me wrong, the restaurant is excellent, befitting "celebrity chef" Tom Colicchio. Our party of 5 sampled diverse lamb, pork and beef dishes and a variety of appetizers and sides that were uniformly excellent; service was very good; the wine list was excellent and included a good assortment of middle range as well as high end offerings. I guess my only reason for the "but . . ." was that I thought it was just a bit too casual for the price point. Illustrative is what I would consider somewhat gimmicky: the fact that side dishes and served "family style" at the table rather than as part of artistic plated presentations with the entrees. A bit loud as well. Still. all-in-all the food was excellent and a good value in a high end restaurant. Not recommended for a romantic couples dinner.

“What a night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Incredible service, ambiance, food to die for.... Exactly what I would expect from Tom Coliccho. Everything that we were served was exceptional. We went to a couple of other really nice restaurants after this one and found ourselves comparing everything to the quality we enjoyed at Craft!

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We shared the roast suckling pig for two. It was simple, but tasty. They served different parts of the pig, belly, shank, loin, chops. We shared kale which was flavored with vinegar. The acidic pop of the kale went well with the pig The potatoes gratin was disappointing; did not taste any cheese. The hamachi and the butter lettuce with bacon were both delicious appetizers. The wines by the glass were great, and they served half glasses which was just the right amount we wanted in order to finish the meal. The service was great and the ambience was romantic. When we left, they gave us apple muffins. I ate one on the train the next day and they were really fantastic.
