I think the servers were intoxicated because they were very clumsy and kept knocking themselves on me. They were also very disorganized and couldn’t see that there was a plate of food which was clearly there and only a drunk person would think that they couldn’t see something so obviously present. I thought it was the most odd experience. First time, and not a good impression! But understandable since it’s a bar setting….

I was a regular at Chef’s Hall ore-pandemic; and unfortunately it still has a way to go to get back to the uniqueness and ambience. The selection of stall has increased slightly - but still a far cry from before; but the table dining does bring some order to the chaos. Hopefully more stalls open up and this becomes once again the regular go to!

Not as many places open for lunch as noted on the Chef's Hall website so we ate at Calibri and it was very good.

The quality of Chef's Hall has gone down significantly since the last time I was here, pre-COVID. There are only two restaurants available, one of which is a chain (Ramen Isshin). The food was overpriced, as were the drinks, and there is only one beer available on tap, which is a significant departure from before. We also were served on plastic plates. Would not recommend, it's definitely not the Assembly Chef's Hall of before. As well, the place was basically dead on a Saturday night in the Financial District, which is really unusual and speaks to the poor quality.

A very different "Chef's Hall" experience than 2+ years ago, but good nonetheless. We had something from each of the chefs in house and we weren't disappointed. Service staff were very good as well.

I loved this place and the service was excellent! The food is mostly fast food or bar food but it was really good, i would recommend others to go with friends for drinks instead of a date, it’s hard to have a conversation due to loud music.

We found out that if you reserve you can actually get table service. It took several minutes for our order to be taken. Somewhat disappointing considering how empty the place was.
Thé Colibri double fish tacos however, did not disappoint! Plentiful, great taste and texture. We would definitely return.
Sad to discover that the food hall’s 17 pre-pandemic stalls have been reduced to three!!!

If I could think of one word to describe Chef’s Hall during our recent visit, it would have to be “deserted.”

It was so sad to see so many empty restaurant stations, but thank goodness RAMEN ISSHIN was open. The Roasted Garlic Shoyu Ramen is delicious and they serve the best Chicken Karaage in town!

We went to Chefs Hall for our anniversary, expecting to have access to a variety of dining experiences and bars as the website states. I have been to similar concepts in Miami and Montreal and always loved the experience. Here Only two restaurants are open and two bars, which would not have been a problem if we had known earlier, as they advertise 15 restaurants and four bars. Our server was terrible, he was not attentive at all. It took forever to get plates cleared and a refill of our drinks. If he was paying attention to us, we would have kept ordering. We complained to a manager that we had been waiting 30 minutes and no one had seen us. She apologized, bought us shots and then gave us a new server, who was equally as absent. If the place was busy maybe this would make sense but it wasn’t, i was watching my servers all night just be social with their co workers while we had empty drinks. It was so underwhelming, especially for our anniversary. Mid dinner we decided to make reservations elsewhere and celebrate our anniversary somewhere where we would be made to feel special, or at least wanted as guests. I definitely will never go back.

Service started slow, but improved once we got the hard working waitress who took care of us.
Beer and the bratwurst were delicious.

Had a really great time with wonderful service and food!! So many things to choose from and many had vegan options :) we got ramen and it was super filling and delicious. Our drinks were so good and were out of the box. Great contact tracing and distancing

Decent Food, minimal selection however compared to what the website had said.
Hostess was amazing and ended up being our waitress most of the night as the waiter didn't notice us for a while. However, they did go above and beyond and ran out to get ingredients for caesars after they realized they ran out after we ordered two.

Great venue, beers seem to run out quickly and only a couple food vendors open. This is a great place though, better once we are back to normal I’m sure.

Understanding the impact of COVID on restaurants, Chef's Hall was very limited in terms of the food that was offered. Further, the drinks list was also very limited. It is a GREAT location, but the limitations on food and drink are significant.

The food was not good (only the taco and ramen place was open) and the service wasn’t either. One of my friends didn’t drink and they couldn’t even make her a virgin margarita.
At the end, they made a fuss about splitting the cheque (they eventually did but I had to escalate it).
Overall my get-together turned out worse than expected, I wouldn’t recommend coming here.

Food was very good, but presentation - on a metal tray with just a paper cover - more like a food truck than a restaurant. Similar with the terrace seating - basic tables and chairs like a food court. Not sure if this is Covid related, but detracted from what was excellent food. Ambiance and presentation not terrible - just a little unanticipated.

It’s a nice cute place but we went for dinner at 7:45 and they ran out of a lot of things on the menu. I would suggest booking earlier especially on a Saturday. Also our service was very slow half way through another waiter was helping us.

Been here a dozen times pre-covid but this was the first visit since. We sat outside and had a good atmosphere and great service (no longer self service, it is now table service). Great cocktails. The only issue is that only 2 of the restaurants are remaining open so there is not as much choice. The Mexican was terrific taste an quality.

I had a good time at Chef's Hall, the patio is beautiful and I love the concept. The service was attentive and very fast. Only slight caveat is that my request for the food (no onions) was ignored. The waiter apologized, and luckily I am not allergic to it.
