“Very tasty food and lively atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

A great find in an area where there are not too many good dining options. Modern American fare offerings as mainly small plates, but large plate entrees also. The small plates are very generous...not like the tiny little plates you sometimes get. The prices are very reasonable for what you get. Great place for a group. They only take reservations for parties of 4+.
Lively atmosphere and the service was good. caramelized brussel sprouts were delicious!

“We love this place!”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Went to NYC for a quick holiday weekend, and found Cask Bar+Kitchen through Trip Advisor. We were looking for a place that with a nice bar, good food, not super-loud and fun. We got it all and more at Cask. It's in a lovely neighborhood, and the interior feels like a cozy, warm place to enjoy on any night.

There were only 2 of us, so I couldn't reserve on Open Table; when we arrived, our hostess said it would be a 45-minute wait (on a Monday). However, we found seats at the bar. The bartender was super nice, knowledgeable and fun. We ordered drinks (nice beer & wine list) and an app, and didn't even need the 45-minute wait....ushered to our table after about 20 minutes.

We had a wonderful waitress (Shauna) who not only gave us great suggestions from the menu, she was engaging, attentive and kept our glasses full. One of the best waitstaff I've had in a loooong time...thanks Shauna for making our night that much better.

Now, the food....YUMMMM!!! I had the paella on Shauna's advice and it did not disappoint; hubby got the lamb shank, which was also looked impressive (although I don't eat lamb). Excellent appetizer of Brussels sprouts with chorizo, too! So glad we picked this place and we'll definitely be back!

The main dining room is a little loud and the tables very close together, but the space is so inviting, we didn't mind.

“Worth staying up late for ”
Reviewed 27 November 2013 via mobile

A phenomenal late night meal. I had the lamb shank with pumpkin gnocchi and my friend had the muscles. It was perfectly accompanied by suggested wines. We also took up the recommendation for the Philly Cheese Steak spring roles. I'd never have tried that unless recommended by so many people.

“Good food, atmosphere, service and beer”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Pros: Surprisingly good food, drink, and service in a hip (but not too hip) bar not far from the Morgan and shopping.
Cons: its a bar with dining in the back and things could get tight.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We ate at Cask early on a Friday night and it was a very popular place. Very friendly staff (we were there quite awhile and the service never faltered even though they were very busy!), the olive oil for dipping the bread was exceptional and the rest of the meal was great, too (striped sea bass!).
