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
  • "It's been a few since I've been to DeStefano's, but it was just as good as I remembered. Steaks were perfectly cooked, and the sides were delicious. I will be back!"

  • "I've been coming here for a while and the food never ceases to amaze me. I've brought my friends for dinner and it blows their minds off. They all love the home feel and the food is just spectacular."

  • "Absolutely loved my first dining experience at Destefano's. Food was delicious, service was excellent and attentive and ambiance was perfect for my meeting with a coworker. Would definitely come back!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "I was here 2 Fridays ago & as usual was not disappointed. This visit my fiance & I opted for separate entrees, rather than sharing the Porterhouse. He had a veal chop (amazing!!) & I had filet mignon (slightly overcooked for medium rare - just a heads up). Next time I'm not sure if we will go back to Porterhouse or try other options...but I am sure that we will leave satisfied & happy!"

  • "Chose DeStefano's while visiting our daughter. Steaks were as advertised...and we chose the 8 oz petite filet which was more than adequate for our appetites. The sides we're proportionately large and well prepared. Service was attentive but not spectacular or noteworthy. The noise level was disturbing with communication somewhat difficult. Overall however DeStefano's was a good experience and we'd probably return."

  • "Going to DeStefano's for dinner has always been a great experience and continues to exceed expectations. If you enjoy a relaxing ambience, with fantastic customer service from a management team that actually appreciates customers, coupled with one the best steaks and entrees you will find in Brooklyn or NYC, then I would highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The staff was attentive, but not overbearing or pretentious. We ordered the filets and they were cooked as we ordered and were very tender. We do not eat late so we arrived and were taken to our table when we arrived. We were tourists to New York from Ft. Lauderdale and were glad we had chosen this restaurant. If we visit New York again, we will again visit the restaurant. Thank you."

    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Started off with 2 slices of bacon along with a caeser salad. Bacon was delicious and huge portion, Caesar salad had way too much dressing, couldn't eat too much of that. Steak was cooked perfect, have never seen a steak so perfect, medium rear. It was absolutely delicious, girlfriend had the crab pasta, was also delicious. Too full for dessert so didn't have any. Would definitely reccommened this place!"

    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We went to DeStefano's for dinner for the first time and had not been to Brooklyn in quite a while. We were not sure what to expect. What a pleasure to find that DeStefano's was quaint and had a family feel to it. The owner was extemely personable and very involved and obviously took great pride the food and the overall dining experience. The food... excellent. The wine was very reasonably priced and you got your money's worth on the delicious entrees. Steak, veal, lamb - all excellent. DeSetfano's gets a top rating - check it out!"

  • "Great steaks and loved the portobello mushroom app"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Yes, it's pricey. But so good. We shared a Caesar salad which was perfectly prepared and enjoyed a dry-aged ribeye and petite filet. Cooked exactly right, very flavorful, delicious. Sides were green beans and home fries; both were delicious but next time I'd substitute something else for the fries - just to try whatever the knowledgeable, friendly waiter recommends. Coming from Nebraska, I know good steak and DeStefanos does it right. Lovely atmosphere. Used a groupon with no issues whatsoever. The restaurant was not crowded at all at 8 on a Saturday night - surprising. Would definitely return."

  • "If you are looking for a special occasion dining experience, try DeStefano's. I love this place because it has all the excellence of a great steakhouse without so much of the fanfare and surliness of some others. Great appetizers too; I particularly like the bacon slices and the Portobello mushroom."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "In the past three months I've tried each of there steaks,either one is excellent. There sauce with the filet is out of this world. Then again the steak speaks for itself. Great for that special occasion."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The 12oz Filet was amazing. My girl got the Veal Chop and ive never seen or tasted anything like it."

  • "My daughter just moved to Williamsburg which I was told was a very hip, emerging part of town. We randomly found DeStfano's and what a find! The most amazing steak...and the most satisfying appetizers, salads, and sides. We pigged out and rolled out of there totally satisfied -- and with about half of our steak in a box! A tip of the hat to Joe, the owner. What a great guy!"

  • "We have lived in this neighborhood for almost six years and always wanted to try DeStefano's. Finally for my husband and son's birthday, we made a visit and were so happy with the choice for our celebration. The food was wonderful, the service was superb and the photos on the wall created a wonderful family atmosphere that felt both welcoming as well as historically engaging. It was a delightful experience and our doggy bag was much appreciated by the family dog - best bone ever! "

  • "The best aged steaks. So tender you can cut with a butter knife. Side dishes very well done. Personable service. Enjoyed all the pictures on the walls. "

  • "DeStefano's was a great experience. Took my Boyfriend here for his Birthday because he loves a good steak and it lived up to his expectations. The Rib Eye was exceptional, tender and flavorful. The Lobster Ravioli was delicious and the petite Filet was superb! And the service was quick and friendly. Definitely would recommend this place to my friends and family."

  • "We were celebrating my daughter's graduation being a nurse. She said it was the best steak she ever had out. She also loved the potatoes,mine and hers. It was a special nite and John was the best host. When we got home we were planing our next visit. Thank you. Bill"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "It was great. My friends had steaks they said the rib eye was their favorite, and they really wanted more of it the very next morning they woke up. I had the fish as I don't eat steaks, the sauce on my fish was so good. All in a,l the sides were very good also. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who want to have a really nice dinner. I usually don't write reviews but this was really worth my time. We had a groupon and it was used without funny looks. LOL"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "This is our second time here and they are constantly amazing! Husband had the rib eye (again) with fennel cuts with a butter knife needs NO additive salt or pepper or anything! On this occasion I chose the lobster ravioli and i could write a book about it. There were chunks i mean i saw full leg meat pieces in it! I sat there till i finished every single last bite not to miss anything! The price is a bit steep but you definitely get what you pay for! Its worth every penny!!!!"

    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Had the $90 porterhouse for two and was extremely disappointed. The meat was fine but the steak was raw in the middle on the filet side. To make it worse you could tell that some pieces on the strip had been taken out and cooked separately as they were well done through and through. Even after picking around the uncooked pieces I still ended up with an evening of stomach pain. This place is incredibly overpriced for what you get. Check out St Anselm or Lugers instead."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The other night was looking for a good steak house to go to tired of all the big name ones in NYC being from Staten Island and not wanting to travel to New Jersey or manhattan on this spring night I decided to give Destefano's a try and the risk was well worth it what I found out is Destefano's steak house located in an up and coming Williamsburg is just as good if not better than the big name steakhouses in NYC with excellent and friendly service. from the thick sliced sweet and spicy bacon that is by the way better than Peter Lugers bacon to steaks that you can cut with a butter knife and nice atmosphere wide tables very clean not a stuffy steakhouse . My days of going to Lugers old homestead smith and wolinsky are over.now that's a meal"

  • "if you are in the area, don´t miss it. Excellent Appetizers, perfect porterhouse. Could work in having a bar and a more updated decor. Wine list could be much better to pair with the great steaks!!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Although it was our first time, from the moment we walked in we were treated like regulars. John was friendly, accommodating, and all around awesome and Joy made a mean drink! We both ordered ribeyes, which were by far the best steaks we've ever had. The flavor was like no other. We also ordered the steak fries, the Caesar salad, and the garlic mashed potatoes, which were absolutely delicious. We didn't even need any condiments (steak sauce, salt, pepper, etc.) because it was all so perfectly seasoned. For dessert, we ordered the tiramisu.... AMAZING. My boyfriend and I fought over the last bite. Needless to say, we've already told at least a dozen people about DeStefano's Steakhouse and will most definitely be back for more."

  • "When I'm looking for steak, I go to DeStefano's. Good food, good service... I've been here a few times, and am never disappointed. I had the veal chop, my girl always has the Filet. Both excellent. Service always top notch."

  • "My parents, my fiancé and I ate at De Stefano's on a saturday night. It was our first time eating in Brooklyn! To our surprise, it really had the neighbourhood gem feel! The staff was so welcoming! The feel was really good! The steaks were impressive in size and in taste. The filet mignon was wonderful. I had the lobster ravioli and I adored it! We had the pork rolls which were so interesting! It was like a whole meal in a tiny egg roll! Very inventive! Of course we ended with the famous limoncello cake (and shots of limoncello :) ). A fantastic dining experience!"
