Cookshop is a neighborhood favorite for sure. Plus every time I go there I am reminded that it is better than just a neighborhood spot. The food is delicious and unusual, the service is sparkling and friendly, the dining room is comfortable and elegant. Everyone in the room is having a good time, including, it seems, the waitstaff. I highly recommend Cookshop.
My only complaint is that we were seated 50 minutes late for a reservation, never fun. But...once we were seated, we were brought two complimentary appetizers and all was forgiven. I would ask the management not to overbook so this doesn't happen again.

The place is specious, but gets noisy although it was only half full.
We had diner. The food was okay. Considering the price, I expected more.
Service was snobby.
Basically, a good place to have something small and seat more speciously than other restaurants. Maybe the breakfast is better.

Nothing objectionable other than the noise level and the bill. I mean the food was ok. But $180 for a meal I could have had in NJ--pizza and a precious deconstructed Greek salad, tabouleh salad, seared shishito peppers and 3 drinks?? just not worth it.

We really enjoy seasonal farm to table fare and Cookshop is an outstanding example. Bright, fresh flavors from local corn and heirloom tomatoes made our meal taste like late summer. The service, in a simple and pretty atmosphere is the perfect balance of crisp and warm. Although other reviewers commented on the excessive noise level, we found the volume to be comfortable, even when the restaurant was full. We’re definitely down for a repeat!

I had the frittata which was very nice but a bit salty. The greens on top were absolutely amazing. My husband had the almond flour pancakes with blueberries and it was very good. We enjoyed it very much.

Great place for brunch. The place is always crowded, so reservations is a must. The cocktails are great and the food is very tasty. My only complain is that the menu has not changed in many years. Maybe its time to take a look at it. They're so many skillet eggs one can eat.

Not child/baby friendly!!! At all! We had 2 babies with us and they sat us by the door near the bar on high stools. The restaurant has only half full and they obviously didn’t want us to have seats inside.

As someone who eats there often... the check in process was less than acceptable
Google/your website.... showed you were open today at 8 am
It now shows you opened today at 1030.... you actually opened at 10 am?
don’t ridicule your customers for mistakes such as these

It’s a nice restaurant with good food but the dining room is insanely noisy. It’s so loud you have to scream to be heard.

We’ve been going to Cookshop for over 12 years and it’s always been a favourite. From the variety of appetisers such as the soups, to the perfectly cooked mains, and of course the desserts! We always leave happy. The cheesecake sundae is divine. Here are a few photos from our most recent visit(s).

We were seated almost 30 minutes after our reservation time and once seated service took forever. Our waiter came over when we seated and asked out water type, then we didn't see him again for 15 mins and our drink orders took about 15 mins. Lots of wait time.

I would recommend Cookshop to all of my friends with the caveat that it's more quiet to eat outside on busy Tenth Avenue than to eat inside. Therefore, I can't go to the restaurant with several 'foodie' friends who have hearing issues. And, even for me, it's not easy to have a conversation. But I love the food and the very friendly service.
