A word from DeStefano's Steak House
DeStefano’s was established as a tribute to the DeStefano family and all those families that made the borough of Brooklyn and the Williamsburg community a great place to live. Our goal is to pay homage to the simple values of faith, family, and friends that are evidenced by the strong sense of unity in the Williamsburg community. It is with great pride and pleasure to serve nothing but the best of what life has to offer and to share with our guests a piece of Brooklyn’s history, as well as our own. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your dining experience. You’re one of the folks.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "First time diners at De Stefanos, food was fantastic all around. From the appetizers to dessert. For the main course, I had the lobster ravioli...the absolute best lobster raviolis ever. My fiance had the 24 oz Rib Eye steak, she loved it, she actually let me try it, and I agreed. I'm definitely returning for dinner here. Food ☆☆☆☆☆."

  • "I had the Ny strip and it was cooked perfectly. The cheese cake made Italian style by the owners wife was excellent. Overall best restaurant in Brooklyn. P.s. We had a excellent chat with the owner over a shot of almond liquor."

  • "the décor are walls covered with local neighborhood photos of weddings, public school graduate classes and celebrities. Fireplace is the center piece and plenty of natural sunlight thru the front windows which I believe are original in size and style. Joy was my Server and was very nice and smiled while she explained the specials of the day and a little bit about the history of DeStafano's. My GF and I ordered the shrimp cocktail as appetizer and it came with 4 jumbo and special sauce. Delicious! The main coarse was the Porterhouse for 2 $89.00 not bad. it was served as requested and was out of this world. just as good as Luger or Chris. Dessert was Italian cheesecake."

  • "Very disappointed based on reviews. Ribeye nothing special"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I recently had my third dinner at DeStefano's and I'm still fondly remembering my meal. As much as I enjoy an iceberg wedge salad, each time I have had the superb arugula and roasted pear salad with fig vinaigrette, which is delicious with bits of pancetta and thin slices of ricotta salata. The steaks and chops are also spot on. My husband said the veal chop at DeStefano's is the best he's had in NYC. He also loves the beef short rib roll appetizer. I'll get to try that wedge some day!"

  • "I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. We had an amazing time! The location, atmosphere, service, food - everything! everything was perfect! I DON'T EVEN EAT RED MEAT and I was in love. The lobster ravioli was to die for. Oh an....Creme Brulee Cheesecake...need I say more? The staff brought my boyfriends cake out with lit candles (I didn't even ask) and used strawberry sauce to write happy birthday on my boyfriends dessert plate."

  • "I eat here a few imes a year with my girlfriend, and again with my golfing buddies in the off season. Never a disappointement and always a great meal and service. Keep Lugars, I'll continue to come to DeStefano's. I took my nephew to Lugars last year (he had never been). He was disappointed. He came to DeStafano's the other night. with us and loved it. I wish the place was a little bigger, but I guess that is part of the charm. The Ribeye was fantastic. I've also had the lamb, chicken, and filet...all excellent. Onion soup is fantastic as well. Looking forward to my next visit to this friendly establishment!"

  • "DeStafano's Steakhouse provided a quiet atmosphere in an old-world room. I didn't love the shrimp cocktail served on a plate. I'm all for twists on classics, but this just looked blah and the cocktail sauce lacked heat. Our steak, though, was perfectly cooked and, while it didn't have that deep meaty mineral taste, it was a delicious piece of meat. Sides were fine. We had a pleasant, helpful and knowledgable waiter."

  • "This is the best steak house restaurant I've been too so far. The steak melts in your mouth. The service is wonderful and they will do everything to make sure your food is to your taste. Try their crab cakes as an appetizer and their ribeye steak. They have a great choice of wines and mouth watering desserts. You will probably schedule another reservation before leaving :)"

  • "This is the place to go if you do not wish to deal with Manhattan traffic and parking. The reason is this restaurant could be anywhere in NYC and fit right in. The food, service, and ambience are all there. They have a dinner menu for around $46.00PP, which will suit most diners. The regular menu is a bit pricy for Brooklyn, however the Steaks are of the best quality. I have been there quite a few times, although I am not not from the neighborhood, and every meal, not matter what our party ordered, was excellent. The restaurant is family run, so you know the service is going top be top quality."

  • "Full disclosure: I wanted to take my husband to Peter Luger's for Valentine's Day, but couldn't get a reservation. A friend told me about DeStefano's, a family owned and operated classic steakhouse in Williamsburg. It was well worth trudging through another snowstorm for a fabulous meal in a warm, friendly atmosphere. It's old-style, pre-hipster invasion Williamsburg: family photos of weddings, First Communions, and graduations cover the walls, and the 40-oz Porterhouse for two is LIKE BUTTAH!! Try to get the recipe for their homemade "steak sauce," a Burgundy/balsamic/shallot reduction that perfectly enhanced the steak. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "This was my 5th visit to Dee's. The food and service are consistently good. The price reflects that of a more common steak house, but the family atmosphere far surpasses anything the big guys can offer."

The food is outstanding with various selections for each member in my party. At the end of the night we were all making plans to return again in the near future."

  • "My wife and I arrived at 8p for an 8:30 reservation, and the host wasted no time in seating us anyway. Compare that experience to Peter Lugers (if you can even get a reservation there at a resonable hour). We were seated with bread and olive oil/vinegar dipping plate already on the table, and the host immediately brought us two waters. Service was fast and friendly, and the food was just outstanding. We shared the portobello napolitano appetizer, and it was out of this world. I would go there again in a heartbeat."

  • "Best steak ever! But being that my review has to be 50 characters minimum I'll say this. I loved the atmosphere. My wife was very happy with this choice for our 12 year anniversary. The tables were spaced appropriately. We could enjoy each others company and not feel like a pack of sardines whereas the owners just want to fill a much space as possible. The staff are friendly and give off a family vibe. We ordered the 40oz Porterhouse for 2 and OMG!"
