Great evening for a party of 8
I went to Hunter's on a Saturday with a party of 8 for a birthday. My guy friend who was the birthday celebrant loved it. I was surprised to see that in the back of the restaurant there were much larger tables that could accommodate big parties. The cocktail list was comprised of drinks called Katniss Everdeen and Van Helsing. We had the chicken liver and bacon mousse to start which was very tasty. Good for a group of 4 people but they could have definitely provided more bread. BTW, this place does not give bread at the beginning of the meal. We also had the meats appetizer which was pretty standard. It came with mustard and grilled bread. For my entree I ordered the roast chicken which was excellent.

Food was very good and staff
Food was very good and staff very friendly. Don't order the Blue Bottle Coffee, though. You'll be waiting 20 minutes for a cup that doesn't taste any better than a deli's.

We love this new neighborhood
We love this new neighborhood gem. Unique cocktails, a delicious seasonal menu and charming bar staff. I've been three times and can't wait to go again.

The Mussels in garlic miso
The Mussels in garlic miso butter was the best I've ever had in a long time. A must have for the appetizer. Also the trout was excellent. So were the truffel fries.

You must try Hunter's Brooklynt
For a family whose go to food is anything Asian, this gem in Cobble Hill appealed to the hard to please palates of my husband and young kids. We all devoured and shared the kale, lamb, trout, truffle fries, desserts. Everything was delicious. Waitstaff and management were top notch. We are spreading the word to all our friends that live in the Tri-state area.

The restaurant is relatively
The restaurant is relatively small and we had a very Noisy foursome behind us which made our dinner very unpleasant until they left. The food was well Executed and creative but the noise factor definitely reduced our dining pleasure.

Nice for casual dining in pairs
Met a friend here for coffee and light lunch, and it was a perfect pick. Feels like a coffee shop, but the food is good. Loved the kale salad especially.

Great food - great for groups
We recently went to hunters with a group of 10 that included two children. Everyone loved every bite including the kids, one of which had seconds of his pasta.
The service was also excellent. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience fun. If you're interested in fun entrées and appetizers this is a great place.

Highly recommend Hunters
I have dined at Hunter's four times and recommended it to a number of friends. It is a great neighborhood restaurant. The food is great. The portions are generous, food is selection is fun, and there's something for adventurous and picky eaters. I love the kale salad and the burger. The pastas are also great. The ricotta fritters are the best dessert. One tiny flaw: no espresso.

Good Food. Good People. Good Spot.
Hunters was absolutely lovely. We did the “Roulette” menu where for $35 the chef has you try out dishes that the house is considering for addition to their seasonal menu. This selection changes every couple of days. We were really pleased with the salmon/avocado appetizer, the sautéed pork chops, and the poached peach dessert. To top it off the staff was great. Our waiter Matthew was awesomely engaging as well as efficient. We felt like instant regulars as we also received pleasant, unrushed visits from the owner and the chef himself. You can sit out front in the airy bar section or slip into the cozier dining room in the back which accommodates groups quite well. Tasty cocktail selection too. We gambled and won! I’ll be back.

A great experience
I chose Hunter's for my girlfriend's birthday dinner, as she and I love to discover great restaurants and foods and I wanted to take a chance on a new destination for her special day. I'm happy to say my gamble paid off. She was exceedingly pleased with the beet salad, and outright swooned over the pappardelle with rabbit (my mushroom pot pie wasn't too shabby either). And because I'd notified the restaurant in advance that this was a special occasion, they were very game to accommodate her; our waiter was pleasant and engaging (and quick!), the manager stopped by to chat and wish her well, and we received complementary glasses of bubbly to celebrate. This very charming and comfortable establishment gave us a perfect evening.

Great food - wonderful combination
Great food - wonderful combination of vegetables, herbs and spices. Ashley, our server, knew the menu and was able to explain how each app or entrée was prepared.

We really enjoy Hunter's excellent custom cocktails and seasonal menu.

Great neighborhood spot
The restaurant scene on Smith Street is pretty competitive, and Hunter's is a solid contender. We had a party of three and ordered an appetizer, a couple of salads, two mains, a side dish, and we were very happy with everything. Very good food, nice cocktails, decent wine selection, excellent service. Strongly recommend!

Great Neighborhood Spot
I've eaten at Hunter's now three times. Each time it has been very solid. The food is quality: no fireworks, but very well prepared. There is a nice quiet, unpretentious atmosphere to the decor and service. I don't know that I'd call Hunter's destination dining--I've been to restaurants much like it in a variety of neighborhoods--but it certainly qualifies as a neighborhood gem.

Great food but loud
The food and service were fantastic. The restaurant was adorable. I loved the creamed corn and fish entree.
There was a party in the back which made the restaurant noisy; once the party concluded the ambiance was better.

Great food, simple hip atmosphere
Everything we ordered was amazing and our service was amazingly good. Food highlights include the kale salad (not at all bitter or boring), the truffled French fries (to die for), pork chop, burger and homemade pasta. YUM! Please do yourself a favor and try this place!!

Everything from the toast with avocado and grilled tomatoes to the Braised Pork that was just melt-in-your-mouth delicious to the side dishes was just amazing. In addition, their drink menu is fantastic...every drink we tried was perfectly prepared. Looks like I have a new favorite in town!

A perfect combination of creative and delicious food with a casual and welcoming ambiance. Definitely will go back and recommend to friends.

Everything is delicious
We had two great cocktails and beer (happy hour) and we thought they were moderately priced considering the quality. I could drink these hot spiced ciders with rum all night long! The food was also very good. The butter lettuce salad was nice and light. The boar pappardelle was delicious but difficult to eat out of a bowl. The burger and fries were also really good. The service was also great. We'll definitely be back. If only cocktails were also on happy hour, I'd be here every night!

Lots of fun
Hunter's is great for vegetarians and meat eaters. We loved the farro risotto, beet salad, butternut squash agnolotti (with Brussels sprouts) and wild mushroom pot pie. Excellent craft cocktails.

Love dinner @ Hunter's
This is a fav spot in the neighborhood; it was a freezing evening and Hunter's was warm and welcoming. I usually pop in during the week, when it's quiet, but it was Saturday night and I was happy we got a reservation. However, they were running late so we had to wait about 15-20 minutes for our table and the bar area is snug, so you constantly feel in the way of someone. We did sit and had a lovely dinner though.
