Food is delicious and well,done. We don't eat meat so our favorite dishes are their shrimp, fish, vegetarian calamari, risotto balls, watermelon arugula salad, mushroom flatbread and... More

Just had brunch at this Brooklyn Bistro. I called ahead and asked for a table by the window because my husband has vision problems. When we arrived our table was accidentally given to another couple. The manager Vinny was extremely apologetic and did everything humanly possible to make us comfortable-which he did. And the food and our waitress were also... More

The weekend brunch is also amazing. What really sets this place apart is the staff and service. From the host, manager, service and bartenders everyone is also friendly and... More

We have had our dinner tonight in this restaurant. The food has been good and the service has been perfect. However there has been a misunderstanding about the amount of the tip. As tourists we are not familiar with the local custom. When paying the bill we have told the waitress to calculate the amount of $ 85 which included... More

Great place to meet for coffee. It has outside searing so on a nice day this is great. The coffee was great. The food we ordered was just ok; we had chicken and waffles. The chicken was very dry. The dessert was excellent. So, if your looking for a nice place to meet for coffee and dessert this is ideal... More

What a gem this place is in Brooklyn. I was visiting my grandparents and loved that this place accommodated them as well as my golden retriever! The amazing waitress brought him water and was so attentive as was the rest of the staff. What a wonderful way to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The sangria is AMAZING, as well as... More

We dined here last Saturday evening with a party of 9 for my father's birthday. We had a reservation and even though the place was packed our table was ready 10 minutes early when we arrived. The service was top notch and all the staff was very friendly. The portions are very large and could easily be shared. Wine and... More
