We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Great variety menu with numerous delicious choices. One cannot go wrong here.

The whole experience at Hell's Kitchen was PERFECT! To begin we were seated by the window which was wonderful to watch the hussle of New York! The appetizers, the main course (Grilled Shrimp, Snapper and Lamb) and desserts were all perfection. The presentation of each dish added to the wonderful experience for my family. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for the food and the atmosphere was a bonus!

We arrived at Hell's Kitchen at 7 on a Saturday night, and expected a long wait, but scored a table within twenty-five minutes. The atmosphere was nothing special, and there was less than twenty tables. Rumor has it that Hell's Kitchen is moving a couple of blocks down in the next few months to a larger space. We loved our appetizers, the salad with watermelon and the wild mushroom roll. Everyone is served complementary thin slices of cornbread and a black bean dipping sauce. The chef really enjoys using sauce on the food...so be careful to ask before you order if you are a picky eater. One of us got the shrimp with guacomole and plaintains, with a red pepper sauce. We even asked the waiter if the sauce was going to be spicy, and he replied no...but it sure was! Otherwise, we would highly recommend the dish. The red snapper special was also delicious. Out of all of the Mexican restaurants we have tried in NYC, this is by far the best, and has some of the most interesting and creative dishes. Definitely give it a try, but you might want to wait until they move into their new, less crowded location.

Hell's Kitchen has become one of my favorite restaurants in NYC; I suggest the tuna tostada as an appetizer. I also advise everyone to check out the specials; I've found some very interesting flavors/textures there. As for an entree, you cannot go wrong with the shrimp. Everyone I've taken there has raved about it. Desserts typically leave room for improvement; we usually get coffee/dessert elsewhere. I have also found the service quite exemplary.

I had a great meal here last weekend. Definitely try the wild mushroom tamale and tuna tostada appetizers. The entrees were just as wonderful. I had the lamb and my friend had the snapper. The service was pleasant, helpful and fast. the only unfortunate parts were the wait and the seating arrangements. Try to reserve one of the back booths if you can.

We visited New York and searched for Hell's Kitchen because of a friend's recommendation. We got there early, 6pm before a show. The Portobella appetizer was fabulous. I has sea bass with plantains and verde sauce, to die for. My husband had wild Salmon. He was pleased and he only eats his Salmon. For those that don't want to sit by the door, make a reservation and get there early. Oh, the price was right for the quality.

I love their chilean sea bass, their black sea bass and their lamb. The free bean dip with cornbread is pretty yummy too. I go there all the time and am quite happy to return over and over and over....
