What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.4

After five years in business, ABC Kitchen is still pretty. But after a recent change in chef, the food is just pretty good.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

Delicious food, beautifully plated. Attentive service, but I wasn't a fan of the way our server described dishes, as it made some unappealing.

This place is hit or miss depending on the menu. Since they area a seasonal based restaurant the menu changes often. The first time we went the menu was amazing and the second the food was bland.

They had just switched systems and we waited 90 minutes for our reserved table. Nothing offered for free to accommodate, barely an apology.

Food is creative and tasty, but small portions, small pours on wine. Service can be lacking and even when on point, very packaged, cooperate style of hospitality. With all the options in Flatiron/Union Square area, to me, ABC Kitchen is overpriced and inauthentic.

I had an amazing experience at ABC Kitchen. Everything at our table was delicious. I even tried their pizza with the runny egg, and loved it, and I'm not a fan of eggs. That should clue you in to how phenomenal the chef is. The wait staff was unobtrusive, yet still attentive. I have recommended it time and time again.

Super cool spot with great energy and vibe. But the plates are very small and the pricing is deceptive. You'll order a lot of dishes and wind up paying more than at a $$$$ restaurant. But, you can't beat it for a date night or fun dinner.

Had high hopes. Wait staff was slow and not attentive. Some food items were good (mushroom pizza), while other items were mediocre (kohlrabi salad, cookies). Not worth the price, but the space is beautiful.

Came with family visiting from CA which included two tweens (13 &10) and was worried the teens would not enjoy farm to table. They loved the pizza, olives and ravioli. The adults LOVED the the asparagus, beets, mushroom pizza, Bolognese, pork chop and salmon. Everything was outstanding. Definitely will go again!

Started off really well. Waited at the bar on our table and got a great drink, bartenders were very friendly and attentive. Once we sat down ... our waiter was where it all went downhill. He did not introduce himself or the special he simply walked up asking if we had questions ready for us to order. It seemed like he could care less to give any recommendations for anything that wasn’t the most expensive things on the menu. And once we put in apps he then informed us he wouldn’t submit them until we placed our entire order.... ok. Food was quite good. We got the pizza, spring pasta, and the avocado carrot appetizer. All yummy. Space was great for people watching. But the service was not good at all... sadly! I would go back if this were not the case. For the prices the service should be on par with the rest of the restaurants in its category in NYC.

We’ve enjoyed ABC kitchen for years. Tonight was horrible! With a reservation, we waited an hour for our table; the longest I have EVER waited for a table with a reservation. We were only updated when we asked the hostess what was going on. Not once were we offered a glass of wine, water and appetizer or anything else during this excruciating wait. Yet we were told repeatedly “the manager is checking on tables.” Once we sat down, the waitress was clearly flustered and paid no attention to us; Yet another 45 minutes until food was delivered. Honestly we saw her taking and flirting endlessly with a table of guys behind us. But she never ever even asked us how our food was. Food was great but service gets a zero. Too bad. I would not come back again until this restaurant gets its act together.

This was my first time at abc kitchen and it was exquisite! The ambiance is beautiful- very thoughtful design with mood lighting that isn’t pretentious. However it pales in comparison with the food. I had the roasted carrots and the squash toast with homemade ricotta to start, and for the main, I had the sea bass- my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The service was also excellent- well versed on the menu and helpful without being intrusive. It was pricier than a standard dinner, but worth it. I can’t wait to go back!
