DuMont reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Perfect Brooklyn Brunch
    Brittany
    Dined on 11/23/2013
    We had a wonderful brunch for five at Dumont. The waitstaff was incredibly welcoming and accommodating as we continued to add additional arrivals to our group. I ordered the burger which tasted as amazing as all the reviews had said. It has a picturesque outdoor courtyard dining space.

    I enjoyed everything from the appetizers to the beer. Great service and fun atmosphere. The walk over from L on Bedford (although there is a closer stop at Lorimer) was full of other adventures past various other restaurants and vintage clothing shops. The burger and Dumont mac&cheese are everything I have heard about them (tasty and certainly not for those watching their calories. The duck was exceptional. We are going back.

    I've been coming here since I moved to the area in 2006. The food just keeps getting better and better. While the classic staples of the burger and DuMac and cheese have gone up in price, they're still among the best in the city. The rest of the menu has never disappointed me. This visit's prosciutto-wrapped monkfish was superb, cooked to tender perfection. Also, get the sides. They appear pretty simple, but are just so well executed. And the cocktails might not be the major draw here, but there are usually some really interesting flavor profiles going on and it's worth getting one.

    he experience from the moment we walked in to the "have a good evening" was wonderful. We had reservations at 6:15, we were show a table immediately. Attentive service, the waiter was quite knowledge about the menu and answer all of our questions. Food was delicious. The backyard garden was simply devine on a nice Fall evening. We did not order the burgers, which was good, since now we have to go back and try the burgers. Everyone around us had burgers and the burgers looked amazing. Can't wait to go back.

    Dumont was recommended by a friend for a birthday celebration. What a charming restaurant! Menu was interesting and varied but not pretentious and the food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing! The wait staff was engaged, paid attention, yet never hovers or intruded. This was a perfect evening!!!

  • Terrific night out
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 9/12/2013
    Despite a rainy night, Dumont served up a wonderful evening out. The backyard patio remained opened and provided the perfect ambiance thanks to a retractable covering. I was happily surprised to find such an inviting spot to dine. And of course the delicious food and music only added to a great evening out. I highly recommend this spot.

    Lots of fun to be had at this resto: helpful and attentive servers (Kevin was great!), unique and delicious cocktails, a nice wine list, inventive starters and mains, fantastic desserts. Everyone was happy to let our group of four take our time over dinner, and everything was paced just right. Nothing too fancy about the place, but the food presentation was magnificent. I'd have no hesitation to recommend DuMont for casual, fun, yet fine dining.

    We had a perfect summer dinner seated out back on an ideal late summer evening. The food was excellent, well-prepared and plentiful. We started off with summer cocktails, the gin based one with Galiano, Absinthe and fresh mint along with the intersting cheese plate. For the main course, the mussels were plump and delicious as was the scottish salmon. The side dish of fresh corn succotash was what summertime is all about. We also enjoyed a bottle of white wine, the Albarino, from an eclectic and interesting wine list. French press coffee for a finale and the end of a great night.

    DuMont is good food at Brooklyn prices -- probably 15% less than a comparable Manhattan restaurant. The burger and mac & cheese are still the standouts, but standbys like steak frites and salads were good, too. (We particularly liked the Dumont salad -- blue cheese and pecans and bacon, something like that.) Oysters were small but fantastic, as clean-tasting as I've had anywhere. Apart from an odd glitch -- waiter "didn't hear" us order oysters -- service was pretty good. At least one spot in covered/enclosed backyard has temperature issues -- too warm to sit comfortably. Not a gourmet restaurant but, for what it is, four stars all around.

    We were pleased with the atmosphere of the back yard semi-outdoor patio space. It set up well for a small group of friends or a casual/romantic date. Food was nothing to get excited about and left much to be desired.

    I think people forget about Dumont sometimes with all the new hot spots in Williamsburg, but they shouldn't. Great food, wonderful ambiance (ESP in outdoor patio) and perfect food (baby artichokes, Mac and cheese, crumble dessert) . I'm not one who usually cares about service one way or another but we just loved our waiter who spent a lot of time explaining things, checking in on us and was just pleasant.

    Dined on 7/27/2013
    Dumont's setting in the shadow of the highway, always evokes for me the quaintness of Williamsburg's history-a working class, industrial community. The food however brings me right back to now with a varied and appealing menu and preparation and presentation top-notch. The crab cake appetizer with a tangy melon accompaniment was outstanding. The server was helpful and polite but not overwhelming which for me is perfect. The backyard was very pretty too.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 7/4/2013
    We have dined at Dumont before during the winter when the semi-enclosed garden dining area is very cold and distracting from an otherwise good dining experience. We therefore enjoyed the opportunity to be in the garden area during the warm weather. It's well-shaded and airy and a nice find in a very popular Brooklyn neighborhood. Our Open Table reservation was honored promptly and we had a choice of several tables, including inside with A/C. The service was friendly and prompt. The restaurant offers reliably good staples like burgers, salads, chicken, and seafood. Nothing fancy, but good food and nice portions. There are some nice daily specials and desserts and the bar has good offerings.

    Great garden in the back. I have been a few times during this summer (2013) and it's been too hot. There is no A/C? and that's fine, but get some fans and get a breeze. Only complaint is the temperature, but the food and scene is lovely with friends or on a date!

    Dumont is fantastic! The crispy fried artichoke which is actually a salad is, hands down, one of the best things I have eaten in a long time. Divine! The pork loin with smokey bourbon sauce was very tender and delicious. The only thing I would change for that main is to add a starch instead of two vege sides.

    Not sure what happened - wine was a miss...noticed after our first glasses were poured that it was a year younger than ordered...I don't like that. Gnocchi tasted like tater tots swimming in canola oil. Couldn't eat them. Veggie side in the duck confit was also swimming. Steak was good. We had a great meal here on a couple months ago, but were so underwhelmed this will likely be our last for a while.

    The food was disappointing. The Rhode Island stuffed clam (a starter) was over-cooked and thus not very tasty. Ditto for the ribs, which had a too-sweet sauce. And the artichokes in the salad had been burned and were too few in number. The hanger steak was OK, and the pasta dish was good, as most cream-based pastas are.

    The garden in the back is really cute, and makes the restaurant. Food was good, but the burger wasn't all that it's cracked up to be. I've read reviews that rave like it's the BURGER TO RULE THEM ALL but was just another regular ol' burger to me. Mac and cheese was really tasty. Prices are very reasonable.
