What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.4

One of the few New York City restaurants you can count on for an excellent meal regardless of circumstance. Go for any meal or for a day on the patio.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Enjoyed a delicious Sunday Brunch. Sitting outside made for a perfect atmosphere. Also received a complimentary spice rub as a father’s day token!

"energetic" is a euphemism for "too loud". Otherwise a great dinner.

Cookshop was amazing. The members in our party ranged in age from 10-53 and everyone was pleased. The burger was delicious, the fries were so good that we placed an order for the table. The falafel sandwich was divine. Great cocktails too!

Very impressed with Cookshop. A short menu but everything had by our table was a hit, and the ingredients were clearly high quality. Service was polished and attentive.
In good weather, i would recommend opting for the outdoor (sidewalk) space....interior can get noisy

Service was friendly and caring. Food was good. My pork chop was very good. Side crispy potatoes were great. However, my wife had scallops over salad. She didn't like the salad, thought they should have served scallops with vegetables as a dinner entree. Dessert of skillet brownie with ice cream was heavenly.

Food was very decent, always long lines and need reservations, since it's in a tourist spot. I was most impressed for the attentive service our server has for us, always checking by sight if we have what is needed. Food is replaceable elsewhere though and is not enough to intrigue me to go back. We did have the lamb burger and the roasted chicken. Husband was very impressed w his burger, my chicken was undercooked. Will likely try other places and support other local restaurants.

Honestly the food was terrible. Pork chop wasn’t tender and came with strawberries that clearly had been frozen. Come on! And the value was pretty terrible, I walked out a little poorer and still hungry. Do better please

I LOVE Cookshop. Every bite and sip is expertly prepared. The cocktails are exquisite. We had the chicken and Greek burger and both were fantastic as well as the sides on the plate. Though stuffed we had ordered dessert - berry pavlova with yogurt whipped cream and basil ice cream. Amazing!

Go go go to Cookshop!

We went here based on a recommendation from a friend who told us it was close to the Atlantic theater which we had tickets for an 8 PM show on Saturday night. We were able to eat outside which was very private and quiet. The dishes are very innovative and tasty. We started with the pate, asparagus frittes and deviled eggs. All were delicious. For a main course I had the chilled seafood salad which I thoroughly enjoyed. The other diners had the Tabouli salad and pork chop which they also enjoyed. The portions are plentiful & the service was great. Without feeling rushed we got to our show with plenty of time to spare. I would recommend this place.

Overall, it was a great experience and a fantastic date night to celebrate a new move. The food was delicious and the outside seating area was really nice. Unfortunately we were squished up against the window (it was crowded) and were seated next to a couple that complained their entire meal. If it weren’t for that, the night would have been perfect. But, I think our waitress felt badly for us and gave us free dessert and cookies and the end of our meal. Will definitely be back!

The noise level is really the downside of the restaurant. Terrible acoustics. Really, really loud, hard to hear the person across from the table. The noise level is a factor in dining out and who you dine with. If it wasn't so loud, I could see The Cookshop becoming a regular go-to place for me. Because of the noise, I could only go there with certain friends and @ certain times. After working really long hours @ a stressful job, it's hard to fight to relax & feel calm during dinner.

Other than the noisy environment, the food was excellent - really exceptional, fresh and beautiful taste combinations. The service was also terrific.

I look forward to going back...@ the right time.

Cheers!

The staff at Cookshop has a youthful exuberance that is contagious. It seems no one can stop smiling. Set as it is next to the Highline, it's impossible not to have fun at Cookshop.

Brunch menu was good. The service left something to be desired—the server brought the wrong drink, then forgot a side dish and had to be asked twice to bring it. Restaurant was far from full, so it was frustrating and unclear why they were so inattentive.
