9 out of 10. Best kosher burger and wings place. Like the kind of burger at the top burger places in the city but reasonably priced. Perfect brioche bun, perfect delicate and interesting mild pink dressing, and grilled onions. Semi spicy wings were the best wings I've had anywhere. And the fried oreo dessert was like a beignet, divine. Fries were great too. My friend I brought agreed. This was a 5 star experience, and more tame than a sports bar, and with great service and a super nice owner. I think one has to keep kosher to appreciate just how good this place is. As good as Prime Grill or Pardes but a third the price and less stuffy. Love love loved it! Don't change a thing. Went two days in a row.

After making a reservation 2 weeks earlier for a party of 8, and confirming day of dinner, I was rather annoyed when I tried to call,once I realized my group of 8 would be 15 minutes late. No one answered the phone, which rang 15 times. I sent one of the party ahead. When we arrived, we were told we had a 10 minute wait, which turned into 35 minutes. No attempt was made to compensate for the delay except for apologies. On the food side, the portions were good, french fries great, onion rings very greasy. Other food ok.

at 4.30pm dinner I expected to eat before 7pm. WE were 15 in the family .food was brought out in 3 hamburgers at atime ! The waiter was nice and gave us free deserts. Even the 2 children's chiicken fingers was last. The first group of three came out at 6. I would go back but never in a large group.

My friend and I went the other day and were pleasantly surprised (wasn't sure what to expect). The food was good (I got the turkey burger, she got the hamburger), and the prices were comparable to non-Kosher restaurants. I'll definitely be going back!

Gotham Burger on Amsterdam Ave. has the potential to provide all things to all folk at a very reasonable price. The food is delicious, the late hours and sports bar are terrific. However, the place only opened recently and needs to find its legs -mainly good and speedy waiters and service. I have heard that the restaurant will soon expand its kitchen which should help with the speed of getting food on the table and should eventually enable home delivery. Do they cater too? Good luck!

We ordered to go last Wed. night and again (hoping for fewer glitches) this afternoon at 1:00 (opening time). Wed. night, we ordered the chicken wings, glazed short ribs, avocado grapefruit salad, and chili. Got home, changed and cooled down to eat. Though Gotham had properly charged us for our order, they gave us the wrong bags of food. We had now at home, instead of our order, a well done burger, french fries and chicken fingers. Gotham has no delivery and it was packed to overflowing. Only option was to go back to get our correct order. I did. Finally, we sat down to eat. Ribs were great - deliciously well seasoned and very tender - almost like the proverbial "melting in your mouth like buttah" - literally falling off the bone. The rest was not as good. Wings were tough and not particularly tasty. Chilli wasn't bad - just mediocre. And the avocado grapefruit salad had no avocado! Hostess Melanie was very gracious and apologetic and promised to replace it for no charge. But we were too tired to make any more food runs that night. Well done burger was in fact well done and moist which is often a challenge for many restaurants. Fries, however, were very soggy and oily and the chicken fingers were okay - i.e., some taste and not offensive - like the chilli, pretty mediocre. Both the menu pages and the waiters/staff describe the avocado grapefruit salad to be made with pomegranate seeds and candied nuts. In fact, there were no pomegranate seeds but rather sweet dried cranberries and no candied nuts but rather raw almonds. On the second try, this afternoon, there was avocado in the replacement salad but alas, neither pomegranate nor cranberries this time. The fried chicken from today (Friday lunch) was tough and excessively oily and instead of half white half dark as promised, there were only dark meat pieces. The well done burger we ordered was between rare and raw-on-the-inside. The onion rings were actually gross-they had so much oil/grease on them that the laminated paper containers were literally dripping into the plastic bag the excess oil. Needless to say, the onion rings were so soggy, we just each took one tiny taste and threw the rest out. Won't be running back there soon.

Was hoping for the best in the neighborhood...but it failed big time. I order food to go and the cashier messed up my order. I asked for the chicken, french fries, fountain soda and a slider. When I got home, my three pieces of chicken were tough and burnt. The chicken tasted like it was fried in dirty burnt oil. The box my chicken was packed in was full of grease. They didn't have the decency to drain and place the chicken on paper towels to soak up the excess oil. This is Fried Chicken 101 standard. The slider I order, well lets just say the bun was much much bigger than the burger. A few of the servers were nice but their food needs help. I won't be going back. If you're smart you will go to a Resturant in Harlem for fried chicken.
