My friend and I both had an arugula salad with goat cheese and a cucumber-jalapeo margarita. The salads were excellent. The dressing was so light and refreshing, the goat cheese so creamy and rich, and the cocktail was uniquely tasty! The read lacquer finished pepper grinders are a really nice touch to the simplicity of the restaurant as well!

IMO, all the reviews of this spot must start with the excellent food. The Brunch menu included a number of outstanding appateizers, well portioned sides that complimented the meal, and a broad selection of egg based breakfasts and tasty sandwiches that will please most diners.
The quality of the food cannot be missed. Obviously fresh ingredients and all prepared masterfully.
The wait staff was extreemly friendly, patient, and helpful. Eventhough the entire lobby was jammed with eager patrons, I received quick bar service and the hosts/hostesses were pleasant.
I would strongly encourage anyone going to cookshop to make a reservation as it seems to be constantly packed.
I've eaten here a number of times, would recommend it for a date or to meet friends, and will continue to eat here frequently.

Pros: Food, Friendly Service, Brunch

Cons: Little Pricey, Smart to have a reservation

I think you can tell a lot about a restaurant by how they treat single diners. Cookshop is unfailingly cordial and welcoming--even encouraging me to linger when it's clear that my table will soon be needed by an actual couple. The service is gracious and low-key. No attitude here. And the food is terrific. Fish is always a good choice, and the wild nettle risotto is the best risotto I've had anywhere in the city. Although I hadn't planned on dessert last night, it was such a lovely evening to sit outdoors, and it is peach season after all, so the warm peach cobbler sounded like a wonderful idea with some green tea. "The table is yours for as long as you'd like," said my server. When it got too dark to read anymore of my New Yorker, it was time to go. I was there 1 3/4 hours and had a perfect meal. It wasn't the first time, and it certainly won't be the last.

the place is lovely at night - esp if you get a seat on the terrace. but the food last night lacked any subtlety - greasy does not begin to describe it. green beans and spinach drenched in not-too-good oil, and soggy polenta sticks. some bizarre acidy taste to the dips... drinks are delightful and so is the service tho. and great location by the highline. but if you want a decent meal... go elsewhere

Cookshop is one of my favorite restaurants in the NY. I dined here many times- mostly for special occasions, as the price is somewhat high. I have enjoyed everything I have put in my mouth- from the chicken, steak, oysters, to the scallop and pork chop, to the fabulously decadent lemon cake.
The wine list is varied and extensive. I like the fact that I can order a bottle of wine for $40-50 and not feel cheap. The service here is typically wonderful. I recommend this place to anyone.

This place was outrageously crowded but I managed to quickly get a seat at the bar (with a friend) and we ordered dinner. We started with bar snacks: The Buffalo chicken wings are your basic lollipop size wings (all the kind of...er... gross parts of the little "drumstick" have been cleaned off and you can pop it in your mouth without looking like you're gnawing on a chicken wing). You get about 6 which is not a lot but is fine for a snack. This reminds of the wings that they used to have at "First" when it exists. They are delicious. The deviled eggs are exactly what you think nothing more nothing less. It's two eggs halved which not a lot but is only $3 and tasty. For the entrees we got the pork chop which was well executed. I was suspicious of the "pineapple and black beans" but it actually went well together. The candy bar dessert was playful (3 finger-sized ice cream bars on white lollipop sticks) and heavenly. The menu reads/seems a bit underwhelming but I was pleasantly surprised at how well the execution of the food was. The service at the bar was friendly and surrounding the patrons were quite friendly.

My favorite part of Cookshop is that they take reservations for brunch; so there's no waiting around. The coffee was good and the milk is warm so it gives that frothy taste of the cappuccino without actually ordering a cappuccino. I liked that there were alot of great side dishes to choose from; and especially enjoyed the sticky bun. While the location is chaotic during the wee hours of the night...weekend brunch time this area is far removed from the hustle and bustle as you want to be and if the weather is nice out its a great place to sit outside, sip some great coffee and work on a soduku or two.

checked out cookshop today for brunch. we were seated immediately in the outside area although the restaurant was packed. our waitress was pretty good (and cute, but she forgot the coffee), and our water was always filled. the food was good, but nothing to write home about, seeing as brunch is a pretty easy meal to h*t a home run. i have to say the place is pricey for what you get. there are apps, all of which run about $10, we ordered a couple and they were good. brunch plates at places in nyc are either just enough or ridiculously large to justify the price, and at cookshop it's the former. most plates are $13-18, which i guess isn't horrible, but you can find similar quality food in a shabbier environment for cheaper pretty easily. go there if you're taking a date; if it's w/ your buddies or family go wherever is closest to you.

Cons: price, avg food for brunch

As a fan of Five Points, figured I'd give its sister restaurant a shot and it lived up to the best in brunch family. A bit off the beaten path, but absolutely worth the treck. We were seated promptly at a spacious table by a pleasant hostess. Our waitress was very attentive. Loved the pastry basket- if you're not up to the entire basket, def get the sticky bun! I had the huevos rancheros and it was unbelievably flavorful. Large portion and I ate most of it. Loved my brunch here!

My mom and I went here for an impromptu lunch today because we were nearby, heading to another restaurant but stopped here instead. I loved the menu choices because of the seasonality of the ingredients - my mom had eggplant lasagne and I had a pizza with summer squash, ricotta, chili flakes and lemon oil. The food was lovely and I appreciated the little dish of coarse salt and our own pepper grinder at the table as well. Thank goodness the meal was a pleasure because the environment and staff were pretty underwhelming.

The place was fairly empty on a weekday at 1 p.m. The host seemed pretty determined to let us know that he was much too good for the task of welcoming and seating us - he just stared at us disinterestedly when we walked in, and continued to be entirely mute, so I had to really bring him along in the interaction and pretend I was answering questions ("hello." "yes, two of us for lunch." "um, let's see, i think we'd prefer to sit inside."). Our waiter also had a disdainful vibe. It's just lunch, people! In a near-empty restaurant! I've eaten at plenty of "finer" restaurants than this where the staff was happy to see me and didn't need to overcompensate by putting on airs.

Honestly, I have a sense of humor and I am generally more amused than offended by people with no social skills, but there are a lot of places to have great food in New York, so why would I go back here?

Just okay. I was really looking forward to it, and it let me down. We did get seated quickly; we had nice cocktails; we weren't rushed out on a Saturday night. The service was fine and not overbearing, but also somewhat absent when we needed something. We had a bottle of wine that was nicely priced considering that it is usually hard to find. The food was a big let down. Four people ordered four different starters and four different mains. None stood out; all were a bit bland. The mains are about $10 overpriced each. Just don't bother ordering a dessert; all were just bad. Even though I live in the neighborhood, I probably wouldn't choose to go back soon, but if a friend really wanted to go, I probably wouldn't veto it.

I've been here twice and was disappointed both times. The food is unpredictable. The starters are generally more exciting than the main courses. Vegetarian dishes are particularly poor and the desserts don't taste fresh. Not worth the money.

I'm sorry to see bad reviews of Cookshop because I had a great brunch there yesterday. The service was impeccable, the restaurant while basic, is charming and god love them they leave enough room between tables that you can get in and out comfortably without disturbing other diners - a rarity in NYC. My friend and I had reservations and were seated promptly(though only when the whole party was there) and our server was very attentive and lovely. We started with the beignets and not quite what i was expecting they were good. But the egg dishes(cookshop scramble with bacon and skillet eggs) my friend and I both enjoyed were great, well made, fresh ingredients and very satisfying. At one point the manager asked us to move over one table so he could seat a table of four before brunch was over. He could not have been nicer(it actually wasn't a big deal at all - we moved all of 16 inches.) but they took the beignets off our check and gave us chocolate chip cookies to go when we left. Even if that didn't happen, i still would highly recommend Cookshop and will be going back very soon.

I was really hoping for a lot more, given my positive experiences at Five Points. In my opinion, Cookshop is a more expensive version with lower quality food and service. In general, the food was extremely oversalted (the sausage appetizer, chicken entree) and not noteworthy at all. The service was highly disappointing, our server was inattentive and acted like she was too good for her job. She was nowhere to be found until we got our check... as soon as I signed the credit card slip, she swooped down and made no pretense of scrutinizing it for... whatever it is she was hoping to find. It was extremely tacky and I left with an unpleasant taste in my mouth. The meal has made me wary of checking out Hundred Acres, although I definitely will return to Five Points.

I was really looking forward to lunch at cookshop after reading great reviews on citysearch and zagat. I love that the menu is seasonal, local, and often organic. Unfortunately, the food was the only redeeming quality of the meal. We were stuck at a cramped table against the wall. No one remembered to bring us bread or refill our water, and our waiter didn't check on us once after we placed our order. We even had to flag down the manager to get our bill and get out of there! I liked my carrot soup and scallop and shrimp salad well enough, but my husband thought his grass-fed burger tasted like expensive diner food. For a $66 lunch (no drinks or dessert!) and terrible service, the place wasn't worth it.

This relative newcomer has become among the top choices for me in the area. The street suddenly became really trendy, and the all windows place has a nice view of the street. Inside the food is a dream - good cooking that feels like comfort food - american classics done really well and inventive. The staff is always friendly, service is always great. You really can't go wrong, though you may not get a table.

Why is any decent meal in NYC so overpriced? (And I'm from NY)

This was a nice place and the food was good, but as other's said, nothing that special. The staff is WAY too pretentious!!! They act like it's the Gramercy Tavern. If that's the level they're striving for, then they have a lot of work to do. There was 2 of us; We each had one entree with one alcoholic beverage and the bill was $100 with tip. I had a nice meal and would eat there again if I had to, but I'm not rushing back.

I live in Chelsea and frequent Cookshop often.I love that the menu changes all the time.That way there's always something new and interesting to try. Joel(the amazingly talented chef) uses foods that are in peak season, and he always manages to combine the most interesting flavors and textures. I ate there today and had a beautiful piece of swordfish served over deliciously grilled pieces of squash.It was topped off with a wildy tasty tomato chutney.The fish was so moist, and the squash was grilled and seasoned to perfection. The service is always wonderful and warm, and the mangement is amazing. The staff is so knowledgeable about the menu.My waiter today described everything so accurately, and made it sound so delicious!Boy was my meal delicious! The managment and waitstaff always greet me by my first name which is so nice.The general manager is always running around making sure things run smoothly.Cookshop operates like a well oiled machine. The atmoshphere, staff and food is fantastic.I can't wait to go back!

I love Cookshop. My family moved back down to Chelsea a few years ago and literally jumped up and down when we heard the team from Five Points was opening a place near us. It did not /does not disappoint. The food is always flavorful and fresh, the staff friendly and professional. We have even brought our kids in for brunch a few times (when it's slow and we can deal with three year old twins at a restaurant) and we felt totally comfortable. Its a great spot for a romantic dinner, business lunch, family brunch or even a late afternoon glass of wine. Highly recommended.

I've always had a wonderful time at Cookshop. I usually like to check out new places, but Cookshop is my go-to in Chelsea when I want a comforting meal. And since the menu is seasonal, there are always fantastic surprises in the specials. Always a nice combination of the known and the new. The staff are complete sweethearts and I've never been treated in any way but wonderfully.

Cookshop is my go-to restaurant on the West Side. Not just the Way West Side, but the entire West Side. Let's start with the lunch menu: Cookshop has arguably the best burger in New York City. Juicy, and covered with bacon, the pickled onions are just right. and the spicy fries...oh the spicy fries. This burger is only outshown by the pizza of the day and beet salad with DiPalo's ricotta. My 7 year old son who won't touch a vegetable even eats the beet salad. when i am watching my calories (and I always am...) I order the roast chicken salad with golden raisins and green olives. it's delish and feels very luxurious for diet food, okay it's probably not diet food but delicious anyway.

At dinner you can't go wrong with anything from the wood oven...fish or fowl, it's all fantastic. The servers always know the perfect wine and the list is affordable...but there are two secret weapons at Cookshop, that I am loather to share: 1) The Pastry Chef...makes the best, and I mean BEST desserts in New York City. Ice Cream Sundaes with Milk Ice Cream and Brownies, Root Beer Floats, Lemon whatever is in season...that's a big bonus, the menu is always changing because the chef lives by the seasons, and not in a pay lip service to the green market kind of a way, in a, hey that farmer 's van almost ran me over delivering his peaches to the back door kind of way. And the other secret...The GM. Always there, always watching, always making sure that the guests get the best qualitly food, drink and service. Run, don't walk to Cookshop. (Would anyone like to buy a cliche for this review?)

Last night I had to meet a friend from out of town on short notice. I picked this place because people have been talking about it... and I couldn't think of anywhere else at the moment. The staff and food all turned out to be professional and well mannered. The room is warm and comforting and feels open. Even though we didn't have reservations the Maitre d politely explained that she would find us a table. That turned out to be fine because my friend and I had a nice chat at the bar. I felt like I was back in my old neighborhood. I will definitely return. No doubt.

I went there for brunch this last week. They have this great outdoor patio. The staff was so friendly and very knowledgable about the food. I had a great time all around.

Complete disappointment ! I had heard quite a bit about this restaurant. Read the reviews & wanted to try it. Around 5pm on a sunny afternoon I stopped by for a working lunch/dinner. I had my laptop w/ me & needed to charge so I asked for a seat close to an outlet & sat next to the window. The manager came over & moved me to another table facing the wall and asked me to disconnect my laptop. At the time the place was empty: out of the roughly 20 tables in the vicinity, three were taken ! I didn't understand and offered to unplug my laptop as soon as they wanted to seat any of the tables. I gave in, sat facing the wall, did not use my computer, paid and left. Just before leaving I asked the manager to count the tables he had seated by then: out of the roughly 20 tables in the first seating section, 6 were taken by that point. He said he did not care & I left. During the same meal the same manager asked a table of five to give back the fifth seat and left one of the guest searching for a seat !!! unbelievable and I could not believe it !

When I discovered Cookshop I simply fell in love with it! Been there a few times already but took my boyfriend for the first time last weekend. I guess I had raved about it so much that this time around things werent that great.. I hate to say that but the food was average! I normally love the beet salad....but didnt care for it ...the goat cheese that was served seemed a bit wierd...The whole fish too wasnt that great...the steak was pretty good though..I am writing this review becuase I love this place and would be happy if they dont loose their charm and great food....so please pull up your socks!

My family eats out in Manhattan 4-5 times a week and we were looking forward to Cookshop for a family get together. We arrived early and the place was empty and they still wouldn't seat us before our entire group arrived. We were then seated near the oven on a summer evening which was extremely hot. We asked to change our seat to the table next to ours and it took a full 10 minutes for them to decide if this was ok while we stood around waiting. The other group didn't even arrive until we were leaving for the other table. The food wasn't great. The only thing that was good about cookshop was our waitress. She was a pleasure. I live and work in this area and will not be coming back. Since we have family in the New York restaurant industry I called the restaurant to tell them about the experience and they said nothing.

I just wish the food were more consistant. You like something, have a hankering, return to have it again and are disappointed. The fried chicken liver salad with frisee was amazing, decent steak but everything else was shaky. The people are truly nice and for such a "hip" restaurant, it is incredibly refreshing to be greeted by doorpeople who are friendly and nice, as opposed to forbidding social x-rays. Maybe the uneven food is due to the overwhemingly good reception and it will all settle down. Fingers crossed because this is an otherwise sensational place.

Pros: Service, floor staff, bartender makes a mean drink

Cons: uneven food but when it's good it's terrific!

As I followed the hostess to the table, I took my usual scan around the room to see what my fellow diners were having. The Huevos Rancheros was by far the most popular, so of course I had my bf order that while I ordered the Duck Confit Salad. I have a weakness for duck confit, so if it's on the menu, I'm having it. We were not disappointed! The Huevos Rancheros was the fave - portion was rather large so it worked out sharing that w/ a salad b/w 2 people. The duck was nice and crisp - greens were fresh. Will definitely go back again for brunch! I only wished they had a champagne or brunch special w/ champagne.

i dine out A LOT, and i must say that i enjoyed myself. the food is worth the money and good--and knowing the philosophy behind it makes it that much better. it's an understated space, but i think that's the charm of it. our waitress could have been a little more plesant, but she was definitely attentive, always checking on us...and visited the bar for us frequently. overall, it was a pleasant dining experience. what's more: it's a short distance from billy's bakery, so save room for cupcakes.

Went to Cookshop a few weeks ago. I liked the dark lighting and the place was nicely decorated for fall, good atmosphere. The food however was just really nothing special. Fried hominy was yummy but I dined with two others and no one was in love with the entrees (pork chop, steak, and scallops - which prob got the best review). Desserts were better but not enough to make up for a bland experience. Tried it once, don't need to go back.

This was one of the best dining experiences that my husband and I have had in some time. Not to jump on the band-wagon, but we also had Raymond as our server and he certainly lived up to the hype. He was friendly, funny, and attentive. The real star of the evening, however, was the food. We started with the hominy and a salad of butter lettuce, bacon, and blue cheese that was to die for. For the main course, we went with Raymond's recommentations and my husband ordered the pork and I went with the duck. Our order took a bit too long but, in all fairness, it was quite busy. The duck was amazing and the pork chop was the best my husband has ever had. You MUST try the chocolate creme pie for dessert. OH MY GOD!!!!! If I had to make any disclaimers for Cookshop they would be the noise (very loud place) and the wait for food. Those, however, were minor issues on what was over all a very pleasant experience. We highly recommend the restaurant and will certainly be back soon.

Food not bad, if overpriced. Any pleasure from the food was ruined by the extremely loud conditions, near darkness, and eccentric, erratic service. Good view of multi-level parking garage - coincidentally the only source of light.

We went there about 6:15 on a Tuesday night and it was almost completely empty. The host told us they had many reservations for 7:00, so he could only seat the two of us at the bar. We complied, and actually had a lovely dinner with attentive service. But when we left a little after 8:00, I counted four empty tables for two, and was just curious what that was all about. I'll go back, but was a bit put off by the situation.

I had dinner last thursday night at cookshop. Everything was great, from the duck taquietto snack, to the heirloom tomato salad, to the swordfish with yukon gold squash. I have eaten there several times and have found everything from the food, atmosphere and service to be excellent. I am already planning my next meal there. Check it out!

As a group, we agreed food was solid. Decent porkchops, suckling pig, whole fish. The wait service was bordering on pathetic. After sitting down, we didn't get menus or water for 15 minutes. First waiter dropped my friend's wine on her after mistakenly picking up the glass to clear away (and turning it upside down!). He did not mop up the puddle of wine left on the floor and did not comp her drink. At the time serving the starters, the sommelier and the waiter knocked over a tall glass of ice water on the same friend, this time drenching her pants. "We'll pay for your drycleaning" was the response. Well, my friend didn't want drycleaning. She wanted to be dry and certainly comped for something. No offer to comp anything, and no manager appeared to apologize or try to rectify the situation. I had to take it upon myself to speak to the manager and tell him the situation - nothing done in response except some sympathetic head-shaking. This restaurant is pathetic. It's pretty, but the service is pathetic and abysmal and we won't be back. My friend is a former chef/owner of a restaurant praised on Citysearch and she has never witnessed this kind of incompetency.

Nice decor, average food. We went here for brunch and had to wait, wait, wait for everything! Disappointing. Its sister restaurant, Five Points, is a much better option. It's one of those restaurants you hear about and you want to try --- but once you do, you never want to go back. (Their spicy ketchup ROCKS though!!!)

We were at the restaurant the same night the last reviewer was, and agree completely with the comments about Raymond. When we left,and told the manager, Todd, how much we had enjoyed Raymond's work, he told us it was his first night on the floor. Now, that's incredible. So was the food. Every last bit of it, from the grilled fava beans, to the whole fish, to the desserts . We were there the first day, and we will keep coming back. Every server has been wonderful, but what can we say other than, if you get a chance, ask to sit in Raymond's section.

The chef and owner of Five Points have opened up an equally sophisticated, stylish, service and food orientated restaurant. Service by Raymond was great. He was friendly but also understood we were on a date. Instead of just clearing the dessert plates and handing over the check - he asked if we wanted to just sit and chat before getting our check. Most American restaurants are in such a rush to turn tables over - I really enjoyed the European feel and attude of the place. Definately try the squid appetizer! The scallop entree was very interesting... A melange of flavours in your mouth that work v. well together. The decor is clean and modern. At one point, I looked around the whole restaurant and every single customer was smiling - a v. good sign.

Four of us went there and i was impressed. Other than the too fruity drinks at the bar which wasn't my cup of tea, everything else was excellent. Since the food is seasonal, my specific recommendations won't help much (as i tried ordering what others wrote, unsuccessfully). But our waiter was great and gave us great suggestions without it being pushy at all. The food portions are not huge but still generous. and the sommolier there was absolutely first-rate. After asking for what we were generally looking for, his suggestion turned out to be a fantastic wine, which suprisingly was the *least* expensive bottle on the list. Lastly, the crowd is attractive and well dressed, but not those trendy hot-spots sprinkled all over the city. It seemed people were there for a great food experience, not to be seen, which was exactly what we were looking for.

Love this restaurant, the decor is wonderful-Host are truly polite and interested in helping. We did not have reservations, the host suggested eating at the bar, the two bartenders were better than any waiter I have had in NYC in months. Amazing place-food was so so good-wine by the glass menu great and not that expensive. Can't wait to go back. LOVE it and you will too.

I went with 4 friends recently, and loved it. We were seated right away, although one couple was 15 minutes late.
Our server was patient, and knowledgeable about the menu. It took us a while to order, because of talking. no attitude!
We all loved our food, I had a ragu of vegetables, and it was so fresh and tasty!
The buttermilk dressing on the romaine salad I found a blah, but the greens were impeccable. I would say skip the salad and get great sides instead with your entree. Friends loved the roast chicken, cod and steak. The spiced fries were divine, and the complementary bread with horseradish dip is dangerous(ly good)!
In the last 6 months, I have been to some of the top restaurants in the city, and the freshness of the food here tops them all, at any price.

Went to Cookshop for dinner a few wks. ago, just average, service poor both times, quality of food was decent. Had lunch there today. Just average. How hard is it to make a salad? It was bagged lettuce, chicken, they forgot the ham, and forgot the apples! I don't know what all the hype is about? The space is very attractive, but not worth waiting to get into.

A friend and I were finally able to get a reservation after several tries. I'm confused as to what the buzz is all about. It tooks 3 drink orders to get one in a glass that didn't have a chipped rim, the food was no better than average and the space was way too loud. Maybe I'll try again when it isn't quite a hot spot.

Cookshop is definitely worth a visit. The drink list was fun and yummy. The bread plate is served with a tasty little mystery pate. An appetizer of red beet salad was generously portioned. My entree of scallops was satisfactory - I questioned the blend of flavors and admittedly was jealous of my friend's gorgeous sturgeon. We also shared a side (a LARGE side!) of beet greens which were absolutely delicious. I found my dinner to be a bit on the heavy side and blamed the large portions. Most everything on the menu looked delicious - an eclectic blend of ingredients. The service was average. I'm looking forward to a second visit!

In the nineteenth century, cookshops were cozy spots in private homes were travelers and locals could get a warm meal. Though this chic eatery, located on Manhattan's burgeoning Tenth Avenue restaurant row, is a far cry from that era, it…
