We visit ABC Cocina on our first night in New York. Choose it from good reviews on trip advisor but it didn’t completely live up to 5star reviews we read. Yes the restaurant has amazing decor, the staff very friendly and helpful yet the food...More

We just had an evening meal at ABC Cocina tonight and sadly I know I will not be returning. Here are the positives: atmosphere (amazing lighting), guacamole, and the ham & cheese fritters. The negatives: super slow service when you want something, yet the wait...More

We were in the neighborhood and had heard rave reviews about ABC Concina. We stopped for pre-dinner appetizers. The kids loved the Crispy Calamari with smoke chili aioli, and we loved the "peekytoe" crab fritters. Very cool atmosphere.

Went to ABC Cocina to celebrate our birthdays and could not have picked a better place. Wonderful modern ambiance, friendly and efficient servers, and the best food we had on this trip - including spectacular guacamole, mushroom tacos, and especially crab fritters- one of the...More

Lives up the hype. Very cool space and amazing energy. Great crowd and definitely makes for a fun night out. Tables are so close together that service is impeded. Our server could barely reach us, however she tried, and was clearly well versed in working...More

We enjoyed a varied and interesting combination of tapas here. Our server was very helpful in choosing dishes we would like and he did not miss! Probably the best guacamole I have ever had. I don’t think there was a bad bite but those that...More

Having just left this restaurant where I have dined before on numerous occassionss it was a quiet night - the staff at the bar were kibitzing and leaning against the bar not paying much attention. The first course - pasta - was excellent. The burger...More

Such an amazing place. The food, service, and atmosphere were all spot on. I love tapas and this was literally some of the best tapas that I've ever eaten. I'm still thinking about the shaved brussels sprouts salad and the shrimp with sizzling garlic and...More

This Jean-George restaurant is a liability to a brand of great restaurants and fine service. Their menu is proposing an outsider's take on Latin food on a tapas base style. The decoration of the place is captivating and casual chic giving a very nice atmosphere...More

Hi, There weren't any large groups in the restaurant when we were there but I can't see why they couldn't put a number of tables together - the restaurant would be the best people to check with though. I wasn't aware of any... More
