Diner Reviews
  • "4th 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."

  • "One 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!"

  • "Great food. Friendly staff. Definitely a place to check out."

  • "Lacking in some ambiance and charm (too quite and too bright), but the burger was outstanding."

  • "service 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.."

  • "Best "gourmet" doughnuts ever. For this alone I'd return to Brindle Room."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Great 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."

  • "We 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!"

  • "People 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."

  • "The 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."

  • "The 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! "

  • "Very nice staff. It has a very loose nice vibe - wine in jam jars. Food was middling. "

  • "Liked the ribeye and my girlfriend's jerk pork tenderloin was flavorful without being heavy on spice. Service was quick, without being overwhelming."

  • "All 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!"

  • "I'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."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Burger 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 have to add my voice to the chorus of huzzahs. The burger and the duck poutine are simply not to be missed. And have a beer. You'll be very full but you won't regret it."

  • "We had the most decadent and delicious dish - pulled duck with fries and cheese - if you are not concerned with calories, you must try this! Other delicious dishes include the pork belly, the kale salad, and their burger is out of this world! It is not huge but the patty itself is one of the tastiest we have ever had. Our waitress was loads of fun and made great suggestions! The restaurant is small, relaxed, and dark but cozy. I was surprised to find that it was not that crowded at 7pm but maybe people have not discovered it yet? I would definitely come back and I would highly recommend it."

  • "Had their burger and fries! Burger is worth coming back for, super juicy and delicious! Complimentary donuts were a great plus!"

  • "Saw this place on Triple D and my mom was coming in to town so we had to try it. The burger was excellent, not too big and super filling. Very cute spot. Would definitely come back."

  • "The burgers were everything we were hoping for. Perfectly cooked to order. The meat is a coarser grind than found in most other "burger joints", very flavorful and juicy (even my wife's well-done). Little condiment is needed. I used a little hot sauce. The caramelized onions added the perfect accent. The braised kale is also excellent. I'm ashamed to say I cannot remember the name of our hostess, who spent time with us, and answered all our questions, even the ones she's heard a million times. Already planning our next visit. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Burger was amazing! Also noticed their happy hour on a chalkboard and will definitely come back for that"

  • "I would have given this review a 5 star except for the veryyyy rude guy. All the lady servers are nice except the guy. We barely finished eating and here he comes taking all the dishes. My friend asked for a napkin and he said, "again?!". Not even a thank you when we left!"

  • "Our party of six had the chef's tasting menu. It was well worth it. The delicious dishes kept coming and the service was perfect, attentive but not annoying."

  • "I sat down on my couch for a few minutes on Sunday and looked at my recorded shows. There was a new episode of Diners..... The Brindle Room was one of his stops. I watched Guy order the Duck Poutine and the chef make him a burger and I knew I had to get there. Turned out I was going to be a block away the next night. I made my reservation and couldn't wait. Thankfully the Duck Poutine was a special so had that and a bowl of the Spaghetti Carbonara, also a special. The duck was fantastic, a terrific sized portion which I filled up on before my pasta made it to the table. Chef Jeremy was spinning vinyl records as it was vinyl Monday and my waitress was great. Can't wait to go back and have the burger."

  • "people are raving about the burgers and duck confi (however you spell this), the burger was good, nothing magical about it, the duck was very good, interesting tastes but very little duck, a lot of fried and cheese"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Nice spot for a weekday dinner. Nothing was out of this world, but everything was enjoyable. Service was quick, friendly, and helpful. The restaurant itself is pretty small, so if you're not into squeezed seating, don't go here. The intimate atmosphere makes it pretty sweet for a date. And the complimentary donut holes given after your meal are a nice perk!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Had heard good things, but was underwhelmed. Doesn't serve spirits/liqueur, wine list is very limited and the staff could be much warmer and more helpful."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "What a gem of a restaurant. Went a few weeks ago for lunch and had to try the hamburger. Juicy, delicious goodness. Met some friends for an early dinner on Sunday. Scored the 4 top which gave us a bit of privacy. I had to try the Duck Confit Poutine that night. Decadent. Duck confit on top of fries with cheese curds and gravy. An absolute Must!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "This little gem tucked away in the East Village brought a smile to my face. The burger was the best I've ever had and I'm not a big burger fan. I also had a dish called Shakshuka. Poached eggs in an amazing background of salsa, feta and other bits that was out of this world."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "After catching the Brindle Room on Diners, Drives, & Dives, I couldn't wait to taste what Guy was salavating over! The duck poutine is phenomenal! It is savory and served as an appetizer! It is a hearty serving of crispy fries, duck meat, gravy, & cheese curd. The burger was also delicious! It was properly cooked, which we all know how hard it is to get a perfectly cooked piece of meat! It also had nice crunch, and topped with sauteed onions. Don't freak when you don't see them on the menu. They are the "specials". Go hungry!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "The duck poutine is magnificent, and huge, easily feeds two as an appetizer, or one as a meal. Burger is also fantastic. Short but nice beer selection. Restaurant is very cosy, and very small, but is well worth the visit. A class act. And it is walkable from McSorley's."

  • "Went with 2 kids to try the highly touted burger. Found a fantastic menu that convinced the kids to abandon our burger plan for Nutella French toast w/ fresh berries and bananas (my daughter-9) and shrimp scampi over grits with poached egg ( What???) for my usually unadventurous 11 year old son. I had the Burger. We were all very happy, my son devoured his shrimp bowl with a fervor I don't usually see at the lunch table. My daughter had a smiling Nutella lined mouth after putting away most of her lunch ( most because I helped myself to some of hers!) my burger didn't disappoint! Delicious albeit a bit too small. I would have gladly paid a bit more for a 8 oz rather than lament the quick disappearance if my 6 ounces of beefy deliciousness."

  • "This place is off the hook. The food was amazing, super rich, but delish. The service was the most amazing i've had in NYC. One girl took care of the entire place by herself, and the place was slammed. I was very impressed."

  • "We had read great reviews about the burger so went to the Brindle room to check it out. The place was small with a cute atmosphere - perfect for dates or a night with friends. We got seated right away and everyone who worked there was friendly. The food was also great. My boyfriend had the burger and said it was one of the best burgers he's ever had and I had Salmon which was equally good. Would definitely recommend!"

  • "Bitterly cold January night, but had a great, warm time at Brindle! The burger is very good (not Minetta Tavern good, but what is?); the venison is excellent; and the Beer Battered Pork Belly is a terrific. Bit of a tight space, and waiting people made me feel slightly guilty, but had a great night with 5 friends. Recommended!"
