- Unfriendly service and meh food.DiscerningDinerDined on 11/15/2014The hostess wanted to turn us away for our 11 am brunch reservation, because it was 10:59. She decided we could stay and then asked if we wanted to wait in the miniscule, drafty waiting area for our 3rd guest... although the entire restaurant was empty. Of course we preferred to be seated. Shrimp and grits arrived a long time after we ordered, tepid and with the tiniest shrimp I've ever seen. Coffee was undrinkable.
- That burger though...MichaelVIPDined on 11/1/2014The highlight of Brindle Room is definitely their burger and fries. I recommend getting it the way the chef recommends - medium w/ american cheese. The waitstaff can help you if you can't remember. Also, get a side of donuts for the table because #YOLO and they're delicious - we got two - Nutella & Salted Caramel.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food & Great ServiceVegasTouristDined on 10/28/2014Brindle Room is a small and intimate restaurant with great food and service. I went there for dinner with a group. I got there a bit earlier than our reservation time so I sat at the bar and had a drink, which was great. After the rest of my group arrived, we were promptly seated. We ordered a couple of appetizers. We had the mussels and calamari, both had great flavor and everyone loved them. I ordered the cheeseburger, which was pretty straight forward but a really good burger. The only thing that's lacking is a dessert menu. However, with the the wonderful food, we really didn't have room for dessert. You do get a few doughnut holes with caramel to top off the meal though. I would definitely recommend this place!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We went for silrloin burgerHHellerVIPDined on 10/19/2014We went for the sirloin burger and it did not disappoint. Wine is very reasonable and good. The complementary dessert was just what we needed.Special Features:
- Gets better every timeBrindleroomfanboyDined on 10/16/2014Keep coming here and gets better every time. The steakhouse burger is out of this world. Idk how it tastes better every time I have it but it just doesSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- PaulDined on 10/8/2014Limited food menu but everything was excellent. Service was very professional and food was hot when it was served. The hamburgers are the best I have had in NYC.Special Features:
- Intimate vibe, interesting foodlmabsDined on 10/3/2014I thought the ambiance and the service at the Brindle Room was really amazing. We came on the earlier side and got the duck poutine and the mussels. The poutine was perfect but the mussels, while tasty, were a little chewier than they could have been.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Burgers and the Poutine!Luv2dineDined on 9/27/2014Everyone in the place was holding a burger. Obviously it's what this place is known for. Amazing burger, probably one of the best I've had. Thick crunchy crust, moist (but not the overly juicy dripping kind), cooked to perfection. Comes with a side of hand cut fries. Poutine was off the charts. Even used actual melty cheese curds. Not your traditional type because this one adds duck. Delicious!!Special Features:
- Unusual dishesNYCBruncherDined on 9/27/2014Service was a bit aggressive and the food so-so. Really nice people but not great if you want to have quiet pleasant experience.
- Lived up to the HypeShoegirlVIPDined on 9/14/2014I saw this restaurant on a show on the Food Network and it looked great. I took my son for his birthday and we both loved it. The Poutine might be one of the best things I have ever had. I have told all my friends to go. The service was good. The waitstaff was very cordial and attentive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great experience at Brindle Roomskunk54Dined on 9/11/2014The Brindle Room is awesome! Great food and ambiance at this neighborhood gem.Special Features:
- Down home done rightdebbiebVIPDined on 9/6/2014We enjoyed an excellent dinner. The poutine was great and my salmon was cooked perfectly. The restaurant is small but homey as long as you can deal with bad acoustics that sometimes mean it's hard to hear your companions. Definitely worth a return visit!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- LittleRedDined on 9/5/2014Went for the Poutine, but ended up loving the beets! Best entree ended up being plan ol' spaghetti-perfectly cooked and spiced. Go figure. Others were just average. Lovely staff.Special Features:
- Burgers, poutine, and pork bellyNickDined on 8/30/2014The burgers are very simple, but in that simplicity the awesomeness shines. The duck confit poutine was stunning, as well as the deep fried pork belly.Special Features:
- great foodOpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 8/29/2014food was outstanding - duck poutine !!!!, chicken was wonderfulSpecial Features:
- Best starterOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/29/2014The cheese fries with duck is a must have.....it was delish. The service was great and we didn't feel rushed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- yumihavefomoDined on 8/28/2014Significantly smaller than expected, almost a hole in the wall. (Walked past it and actually missed it.) Amazing burger at a decent price. Only a couple tables, so the waitress was very attentive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loud FestiveIncredibleVIPDined on 8/19/2014Unexpected surprise for well delivered that was delicious. The staff were working the entire as two servers/management. The only drawback for me was don't expect a quiet night out with the way the room was designed decibels of conversation was at time uncomfortably loud.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- a favoritepiafVIPDined on 8/15/2014Delicious burger and great happy hour specials including $1 oysters. Duck confit poutine is a very special dish, but a commitment. Space is small and seems a little cramped for waitstaff, whose terse competence is best viewed as a charming quirk. They sell their homemade hot sauce - if you're into that sort of thing, pick up a bottle for sure. This spot has been a local favorite since it came on the scene.Special Features:
- Carb free mealsShojinMonkeyVIPDined on 8/12/2014I really like that is is easy to avoid carbs here as you can pick out the sides that come with the entrees. We have tried chicken, pork, steak, and seafood, as well as several veggie dishes, and everything has been good considering the price.Special Features:

- Delish complimentary donut holesTastyplateDined on 7/19/2014I went there my first time to try the highly recommended burger, cooked at the chefs medium well suggestion. The Italian parmasean fries perfect . The drinks were great especially my new favorite "Donkey Punch". The peak moment was the complimentary caramel powdered sugar donut hole warm and delicious, a perfect way to end a scrumptious meal ; a delightful evening out with my friends. Cheers to you Brindle RoomSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Brunch at BrindleDustyDined on 7/13/2014What a fabulous place! Felt like we just had a home cooked meal by a REAllY terrific chef!!! Lovely ambience and friendly efficient staff. Want to return soon to try Dinner!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Just gets better and betterBrindleroomfanboyDined on 7/5/20144th time coming here, and the food seems to taste better and better every time I come here. It's ridiculous to say but it's so true. I will never get over that burger. I can't go anywhere else to have a burger anymore because they all taste horrible compared to this one. Such friendly service and great vibes I love it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A damn good burger!JohnFDined on 7/2/2014One of the better burgers I've had in a long time and the fries were equally insane. And to cap off a great lunch they were playing Rush the entire time we were there. If you like burgers you cannot go wrong at this place. I will def be back!Special Features:
- Brindle Room is a GemMWEVDined on 6/28/2014Great food. Friendly staff. Definitely a place to check out.Special Features:
- Great BurgerOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 6/24/2014Lacking in some ambiance and charm (too quite and too bright), but the burger was outstanding.
- so disappointedcharley19Dined on 6/17/2014service was poor, arugula salad disappointing, Kale salad was better but not great. Salmon dry on the edges, center cooked right, crispy skin it was a good - sides braised kale had hot red pepper flakes in it which is not mentioned on menu or by staff I couldn't eat it. service was not good, main dish came out about 5 mins after they served the salad - this is kitchen's fault or the way they enter tickets but the waitress wasn't helpful or apologetic - it was more of an attitude of too bad.. i saw at least 2 burgers go back to the kitchen - in total I would not go back and would not recommend - way too many better place in the East Village..
- Delicious doughnuts!JenniferVIPDined on 6/7/2014Best "gourmet" doughnuts ever. For this alone I'd return to Brindle Room.Special Features:
- Great Appetizersgtorres22Dined on 6/6/2014Great Appetizers but the main dishes fell short. I loved the Mussels for the appetizers but my main dish (Rib-eye steak) fell far short of delicious. I also disliked all the sides. I view this place as a great place to meet up for appetizers and drinks but not so much for a full meal.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Foodmle1234Dined on 5/25/2014People rave about the burgers here but I have not ordered one. I always find more exciting options. I had the lamb salad here recently and I cannot wait to go back and have it again. It was inventive and delicious.Special Features:
- comfort food at its bestgourmetgourmandDined on 5/24/2014We had a wonderful dinner at Brindle with of course Duck Poutine but also the seafood curry and a range of small plates including the pork belly. Everything was perfectly seasonned and so tasty! The atmosphere was nice and laid back and the service attentive. Everything one could ask for!
- Awesome !DanielleDined on 5/17/2014The service at The Brindle Room was outstanding and there were only two people doing everything! They were hosting, serving,bussing you name it! I really enjoyed the Duck Poutine and their famous burger. A lot of love goes into their food and operation. I will return!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bustling & TastyDavidVIPDined on 5/16/2014The hostess/waitress we started off with was a bit snooty, but the guy who ended up helping us was very nice. The place was quite busy and had a nice buzz about it. The duck confit poutine was as you would expect - comfort food par excellence. The hamburger was also extremely good and expertly prepared with a top notch beef blend. The kale salad could have used a bit more to elevate it, perhaps more crunchy walnuts and some pear and perhaps a bit more pecorino. The fact that the menu is small as is the wine list is really refreshing, allowing the restaurant to focus in on what it does well and to keep prices down - a real bargain find in NYC.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OKabcdVIPDined on 5/6/2014Very nice staff. It has a very loose nice vibe - wine in jam jars. Food was middling.
- Solid food selectionMrABDined on 5/1/2014Liked the ribeye and my girlfriend's jerk pork tenderloin was flavorful without being heavy on spice. Service was quick, without being overwhelming.Special Features:
- Beware of serverOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/20/2014All in all the food was okay. Nothing that wowed me. Went to the place because it was on diner drive ins and dives. The duck confit was awesome but everything was okay. The lady server was horrible. She had an attitude all night and made us feel really uncomfortable. She didn't care about her job and didn't care about the customers. If you have the girl server when you go. BEWARE!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GodlyBrindleroomfanboyDined on 4/20/2014If you want the best food ever, and you better order the burger, go here. Life changing food and I never say that. The world needs to know about the Brindle RoomSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and friendly staff!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/20/2014The food was incredible, and the service was fast, professional, and friendly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- True to the buzzBravoDined on 4/19/2014I'd heard some hype about the Brindle Room...the duck poutine, burgers, wings. It's all legit. Truly. Did I mention the duck poutine? It's a tight little space, but not uncomfortable. Wait staff is great. Beer list is short but thoughtful.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome burger and poutineOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/14/2014Burger is delicious. I'm in a burger club and we went there solely for the burger. It was delicious and I loved the duck poutine. Go!I would recommend this to a friend.
