A word from Brinkley's Broome St.
Opened in 2009, Brinkley’s popular Gastropub, located on a compelling corner of Broome Street in SoHo, is a haven for neighborhood enjoyment in a casual setting. Bike propped against the building, Brinkley likes to unwind meeting a group for Sunday brunch. Or perhaps he’s taken a seat at the bar where he can catch his favorite match over a pint of local, New York state beer. Although Brinkley is partial to the Grass-fed Burger, the menu offers a variety of pub classics like Three-Cheese Mac and Cheese and Duck Fat Fries as well as farm fresh options like Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad and Roasted Black Garlic Hummus. Here Brinkley will always make you feel at home, please come say hello.

    We made a great choice to return here for Easter brunch. The food was excellent, and it was served hot and stayed hot. The wait staff is genuinely friendly and very attentive; we were never without a smile or an icy cold beer throughout. Talented musicians entertained at a good decibel. A few extra watts in the restroom lighting, however, wouldn't go amiss.

    Very disappointed in the restaurant and would definitely not go there again. The buss boy delivered most of our food to the wrong table. The menu was boring and unimaginative. The waitress who served us was very nice though about the problems and tried to make up for the rest of the restaurant.

    Been meaning to check out Brinkley's for a while so was delighted when a friend suggested we stop in for brunch one Saturday. The decor is fab. The food is yum (although after I left I realized I never got the parmesan homefries that were supposed to come with my order of scrambled eggs) and while I didn't drink anything more than coffee, I was impressed with the bar menu's list of local beers and wines. My only complaint was that our waitress was a little rude.

    We were a large group, needing place with a few options (and they WERE good) for the Vegans with us. However, the noise level was such that we couldn't talk across the table. There were a lot of hard surfaces that amplified the music, it's a hard combo: a hip, energetic atmosphere and decibels low enough to converse, leading to lingering and spending more money on food and drink! Everyone was happy with the food and location, we ranged in age from 60 down to 18.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/17/2013
    We had brunch at their midtown location a few weeks ago and had a great experience, and then tried their SoHo location. We were extremely disappointed- the music was so loud we could barely hear each other, the restaurant smelled like chlorine or bleach, the waitress (although sweet) was very inexperienced (as in, brought a cup with a teabag but no water, then returned with water but no milk or sugar). We were surprised that some basic restaurant items were missing- they don't have herbal tea at this location, but have a few selections at the midtown location. Even though the menu is the same at both, the caliber downtown is definitely not up to par with midtown. All in all, would not go back or recommend it.

    I've been here for lunch. Fabulous neighborhood spot for a tasty bite. The experience is simply perfect - food, service, ambiance/music -- all just right for an enjoyable afternoon visit with a friend. A special thank you to the staff who understand how to make your time with them enjoyable. I'm always surprised at how many restaurants fall down on the service end of things, but the staff at Brinkley's knows how to do the job and do it exceptionally well! Definitely put this restaurant on your list of places to enjoy!

    When our party arrived, they told the hostess that they were there for a surprise birthday party and that the only people left from our party were the guest of honor and the friend bringing him. Nevertheless when I arrived with the birthday boy, the hostess said enthusiastically to us "The rest of your party is here! How many more of you are there?" Oh, well, so much for the surprise. No biggie. Then: really long waits to be served at every step of the meal with various members of our party having to get up and ask for a server about 3 different times. When we finally got waited on after 45+ min. total of waiting we got chipper banter about the restaurant's remodel and no apology. The food was good. Was my 2nd time there. Won't return.

    Things have gone downhill at Brinkley's, at least in terms of the food. The menu is more limited, the burgers got noticeably smaller, & what's the deal with no regular fries, only sweet potato or duck fat? I've eaten here many times but was quite disappointed on my last visit.

    Made last minute reservations mid-day to have a drink, get lunch and watch the Roddick match. We had drinks and appetizers and it was awesome! We ended up with 2 servers as the first one's shift ended while we were there. The first server, Jeff, was outstanding! The second was okay but not as personable and fun.

    The burger was tasty, only it was too round. This may sound like an odd criticism, but imagine a burger shaped like a tennis ball (for real). Now imagine trying to get your mouth around that ball. It's doable but not fun. In addition, imagine what kind of bun would be required to fortify such a burger. Thankfully this burger did not have such a bun, but in consequence the bun crumbled under the weight of the burger and all the topping fell out. The flavor was good, but the experience was disappointing. My server was very friendly and agreeable.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/4/2011
    As an expat Brit I went for brunch, the menu suggested there was a Sunday Lunch (English style, with all the trimmings) which is why went. When we asked about it apparently "it started at 3pm"!, which is either bizarre or code for " we don't do it". We arrived at 1.30, and were there at 3, there was no real sign of the demand for roast dinner, they may want to take this off the menu. The eggs with duck confit was ok, if a bit salty, the Caesar salad was peculiar, 2 hearts of romaine with a bit of sauce, half a boiled egg on the side on top of an overcooked/dry butterfly chicken breast. My daughter had the burger, not the best, cheese was rubbery, no kids menu etc. I was somewhat disappointed to be honest

    I went here at midnight after reading their website to look at the menu. I sat down and they told me they had a latenight menu which they would tell us about in a few minutes. They should really make an actual late-night menu instead of listing them off. They only have like 6 items at night and were out of half of them. I ended up paying for my diet coke and leaving. They should put the fact that they only serve a few items after a certain time on their website.

The place was no busy at all yet it was a half an hour from the moment we got in to the moment we left and other people were being seated before us. The Host and wait staff were too busy chatting with their friends than worrying about doing their own jobs. I would not go back even if they paid me!!!!

    This was my second time going to Brinkley's and at first I was a little bummed because they had just changed their menu. The duck three ways and braised rabbit were INSANELY good the first time I went there. But this time was equally as delicious and the service was even better. Our waitress and I assume the manager of the restaurant as well were very attentive and asked us how everything was. We even requested a table to view one of the TV's for the Final Four games and they placed us in an awesome spot with a clear view!

Very disappointed - rude staff, other than the nice hostess who seated us, really mediocre food, if that, and they were out of nearly every beer my friends tried to order (we went through 4-5 till we found one they had). With so many other great places in Soho, we won't be going back.
