The garden in the back is
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.

I just love DuMont. Such a wonderful surprise when you find the hidden garden. The food is always spot on. Perfect.

Wouldnt seat us without our 3rd guest, even though we had a reservation and both my friend and I were VERY pregnant.

Best Mac & Cheese
My friends and I have gone to a dozen places around NYC and we agree Dumont is the best. I've now been 3 times and it is consistently excellent.

Ratings must be taken in the context of informal Williamsburg. Dunont mac and cheese rules!

Outside was great!
I was afraid that it would be too hot to sit outside but the covering and the fans helped so much, it was very pleasant!

Fantastic outdoor seating area that more than doubles the size of the restaurant while remaining intimate. Great service, typical Brooklyn-y tasty but very heavy fare.
6/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food is always solid here, and wait staff go out of their way to ensure a pleasant dining experience.

Dumont is fantastic! The crispy
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.

Dumont is always a great experience
This is my Saturday morning brunch spot with my sister. We love it, the food is delicious and the outdoor dining is a special added touch!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was good. The backyard has a beautiful dining space. I will definitely be coming back to try the brunch menu.

Great spot, no A/C
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!

Enjoy the Garden in the Summer
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.

Reasonably priced. The DuMac and Cheese is to die for as if the Hanger steak and the service is absolutely wonderful!

I had a phenomenal dinner at DuMont last week. The muscles with the garlic cream were beyond delicious. And the heirloom tomato salad with watermelon and ricotta was filled with a wonderful mix of flavors and textures.

Good OLD Williamsburg
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.

Perfect summer spot
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.

Wonderful Every Time
We drive from Manhattan just to eat here. Try the Mac & Cheese as an appetizer to share. Am amazing experience!
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Right up the middle.
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.

A must in Brooklyn
The crispy artichoke salad, dumont Mac and cheese and dumont burger are all great to try whether it's your first time or 10th time.

Had a wonderful experiance
Had a wonderful experiance here and I am looking foward to going back. Only downside is I felt that my fish had way to much salt on it. But otherwise it was wonderful...
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, great people, great food. Their outdoor area was beautiful. Certainly will be coming back.

Perfect summer meal
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.

Just a very good meal. You
Just a very good meal. You have to try the DuMac & Cheese.

Everything Was Terrific!
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.

Terrific night out
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.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
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!!!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
good neighborhood spot
great outdoor dining space, somewhat loud. nice cocktail list, food is tasty, though not outstanding.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
he experience from the moment
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.

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.

The Place for Burgers!
While you can go to Dumont burger on Bedford, why not enjoy the same great food at a quainter local?
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth an hour on the #4 & L trains
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.

Perfect Brooklyn Brunch
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.
