Overpriced, soggy, greasy food with astonishingly bad service is what you'll get after waiting in line on the sidewalk for what you have been led to believe will be the meal of a lifetime. I am told that fifteen years ago, in an old location, this place had charm, but the food is sunpar and it's very uncomfortable to eat there once you've wasted time waiting for a table.

Really the most unappetizing breakfast i have ever received and considering their prices, completely unforgivable. Maybe they should pay a little less attention to the Green, Locavore, and "look how cute we are" BS and more attention product quality and to actually delivering what was ordered in a timely manner that leaves the food hot and not splattered all over the container. I say this as a restaurateur who understands what it means to run a place and knows how difficult it can be. If you can't do delivery right, don't do it! Point by point: Eggs over Easy: Splattered all over the container Pancakes: Consistency of manhole covers Potatoes: Great, if you like them raw Sausages: Mysterious cube like, grainy questionable meat objects Scones/Muffins: I dont event know what this "bread" substance was, but it definitely could give some a concussion Having your breakfast screwed, screws your whole day. Thanks Kitchenette

Kitchenette is my cozy, welcoming, yummy go to place. I usually call for delivery. The young lady who now often answers the phone sounds as bright and cheery as the smile on her face when you are greeted at the door . If I'm in a hurry, not feeling well or have unexpected visitors.. they are who I rely on; and they don't disappoint. The portions are large, reasonably priced and delicious. Don't even ask 'bout the desserts.. I already ate them! Much respect.

I grew up in a donut shop / diner in Staten Island where we believed in fresh donuts daily and cleaning the grill each night. We prided ourselves in each dish of eggs and toast that came out of the short-order kitchen. I wish that dash of perfectionism could be sprinkled on some more of NYC’s kitchens. Tribeca’s Kitchenette is no exception. I enjoyed their Website more than their food. Overall Atmosphere: While their décor is a lovely shade of Shabby Chic – it doesn’t match their menu prices. I would expect a bit more Chic to balance the Shabby. The quarters are close enough that they had to move the tables in order for 2 petite people to fit in – so much for a New England feel. Service: The overly friendly gentleman at the door was very congenial but our waitress needed to be tickled and entertained with stand up before she showed a smile. Food: Both my boyfriend and I got eggs sunny side up with biscuits as well as the home-fried potatoes. The eggs were good and the biscuit was good for the first 5 minutes and by then the whole bottom of the biscuit turned into a hockey puck. Now maybe I’m a Northern girl, not familiar with biscuit etiquette. Luckily my opinion was validated by my neighboring table (he was so close I could feel his breath when he was blowing his coffee), who also complained about the rock biscuit. To Kitchenette’s credit, they gave him a new one right away. (I didn’t bother to ask.) The decaf coffee was good. Some of their lunch options seemed a bit more appealing – but not enough that I would go back. Truthfully it looks like the creators had a good idea but got Tribeca-ized when the neighborhood went rich. Slightly better than diner quality, but not by much.

Ordered a Cobb Salad for delivery and got what was essentially a mixed green salad with chicken and blue cheese mixed in. Apologies, but that's not a Cobb Salad. Was looking for some comfort food delivered and didn't get it-- no chopped egg, no bacon, no separation of ingredients. I called to complain and they said tough, "that's how we do it." On top of it the mixed salad greens they used (not iceberg as one would expect) were soggy, the chicken was overly spiced and the portion was ridiculously small given the price.

I live in the downtown area, this place is a must. Brunch is always SO good, granted it can get crowded, but it is worth it. Been here many times also for dinner, WOW, great place to eat. It is always close to empty (I think people just only go for brunch) and the food is freakin' awesome! Had their Turkey Dinner, it was so good! I highly suggest dining here. P.S. Would all so called "New Yorkers" please stop being so picky about every little thing. Go and enjoy yourself and have a good meal. So many of you just need to destress and stop complaining about EVERYTHING about dining in NYC, get over it!
