Rustic Kitchen is consistently good whether for drinks and appetizers or a full meal. The basics don't change but there are always new and interesting items on the menu. We have dined at Rustic Kitchen so many times over the years and it has never disappointed. Highly recommend.

From the moment we walked into Rustic Kitchen the service was superb. We had a 730 reservation and we arrived at 700 Saturday night and we were seated immediately. We were also offered 2 choices of tables, a high top booth or a table in the middle of the dining room closest to the bar. We chose the high top booth which was perfect for our occasion which was our 1st anniversary. My wife ordered the baked stuffed Haddock and I ordered the Shrimp, Scallop Spagetini. Both dishes were excellent and the portions were quite large. The restaurant also has an extensive wine list and a long list of beers. When the bill arrived I was pleasantly surprised given the quality of the food and the attentive service.

This was an excellent choice for our anniversary and we will be back!

I think rustic doesn't have to mean rich and caloric. The swordfish and cheesecake were not good, but we loved the mussels and the beef stroganoff - just avoid things that sound laden with butter because they will be. The service was outstanding though, and the atmosphere is really great - excellent wine list.

We went in for a light lunch and had delicious homemade, hearty soups, along with wonderful spring rolls. Nice location and atmosphere.

We had a lovely dinner after a show at the Wang. The atmosphere is lively but you are still able to carry a conversation. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. It was one of the best meals we have had in the city!
