“Food is the star”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

We stopped for lunch right after Thanksgiving and we were very positively surprised. The food is excellent, it's nice to find a restaurant that makes simple food and does it with excellence. Desserts as well were very good.

The place is set up as a minimalist canteen, a lot of white with wooden beams, white simple chairs and tables. Because of the low ceiling the restaurant tends to get quite loud when it reaches capacity, I found this to be the only defect for the place, but only matters if you were planning on a date.

Staff is very nice but sometimes it tends to over service to the point that they tried to remove our plates while we were still eating, but I truly think that it was due to the fact that they are trying very hard.

Overall I would go back every time I am in New York to try all the rest of the menu, every single dish we had was perfect in terms of Flavors, quantities and the organic aspect is definitely the big cherry on top.

“Fantastic food, gorgeous setting”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We stopped in for a late lunch on black Friday and were extremely pleased with our choice. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. The setting is also great, with small details that make it interesting.

“Detailed Delight”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

My daughter had eaten at ABC Kitchen and wanted our family to enjoy a meal there as well. The decor is a lovely mixture of modern and vintage and there is a lovely attention to details. The mismatched, recycled china and dainty vases with miniature fresh flowers are quite fetching. The food, however, is the star of the show. The house made ricotta with cranberry compote, the carrot avocado salad and crab toast are great starters. The cod was fixed perfectly as was the prosciutto - date pizza.

“Lovely Design Forward”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

It's hard for me to say whether the food would have been as good if it had not been served in the most charming design forward dining space in NYC! I can't remember what I ate except that the portion was large and I enjoyed it but I can remember the light fixtures, tables & chairs, pieces of art, even the waiter's plaid shirts. Admittedly Jean Georges is a genius who's many dining venues are revered and rightly so; but ABC is simply a total experience! Loved it!

“A dinner at abc ”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

A nice dinner in a large crowded setting. The decors is beautiful but the restaurant a bit large The noise level is high
The food is good as is the service. A good restaurant but not worth all the commotion.
