Excellent pizza. I have been to Brooklynn's Bistro several times and have always had a good meal.

4 of us went for dinner after
4 of us went for dinner after an afternoon jets game...5 pm reservation, so the restaurant was empty.
First time for 3 us...all impressed by the beautiful room, high ceilings. Ordered the anitpasto platter to share, along with the calamari. Both very good. Tenderloin, bucatini (hollow, spaghetti-like pasta), and 2 pizzas for dinner. All of us were pleased with the flavor and value.
We had heard mixed reviews about Brooklynn's before, but decided to give it a go due to its proximity to the Arena. Glad we did.
By the time we were leaving at 7 pm, the room was filling quickly, several large tables included. We will be back.

The best Scallops I have ever
The best Scallops I have ever had anywhere.
Lovely service and interesting menu options.
A bit noisy for quiet voices or those with declining hearing.

Not as tasty food as the 1
Not as tasty food as the 1 st time I was there (and ordered the same items both times) but it could have been a seasonal thing - tomatoes in the salad not sonsweet and fresh this time) but good food all around. Pricey, but I'd go back for sure.

We had 2 tables which gave us plenty of seating room for 6 people. The service was friendly and prompt.

We came as a group and had a very good experience overall. Those who ordered the wood fired pizza really liked it and the pastas were very good too. Surprise was the calamari whcih I did not think I would like when it arrived at the table but it turned out to be my favorite part of the meal. Would recommend.

Worth the trip down town!
Brooklyn's Bistro offers a fine dining experience- great food (my favourite item on the menu is the risotto), classy decor (I love the large windows), and competent staff.

Food was great. Service was
Food was great. Service was really good. We had left overs and they packed it for us, but they packed the food sideways in the bag, so it leaked. all the food was on one side of the container, that was terrible. Eat all of your food there, don't bother bringing it home, it won't make it.

Beautiful building, food just OK
The title says it all. While, the food was good, it was not outstanding.

My wife, daughter and myself went to Brooklynn's for a nice dinner out. We each ordered different appetizers, mains, and desserts, so we shared with each other and EVERY dish was spectacular. The appy risotto was slightly better than the risotto that came with the beef tenderloin, but that's splitting hairs. The creaminess of the risotto with the delicious tenderloin was a fantastic combination. The beet salad had a nice spicy kick that didn't overpower the sweetness of the beets. The main course gnocchi was phenomenal. Perfect amount of garlic and the bacon added that fatness. And the chicken main was perfect! The desserts weren't as excellent, but they were still quite good. GO HERE!

We were the only diners from arrival at 6 pm until shortly after 7, so had lots of attention and amazing service, yet unobtrusive. Two of us shared the roasted beet salad which was flavourful and satisfying. We all had different entrees and we each enjoyed our choice- one Boa pizza- nice thin crust; gnocchi and shark ink pasta- all good choices. We did sample each other's and confirmed that all 3 entrees were well prepared, flavourful, nicely presented. Wine list was quite acceptable

Amazing Italian Food in Winnipeg
I went to Brooklyn's Bistro for my first time this past weekend and absolutely LOVED the food. Italian food is one of my favorites and in the past I've gone to the following restaurants: Belissimo's, Amici's/Bombelini's & Monticchio's. I must say that Brooklyn's Bistro was the first restaurant where I was served FRESH PASTA - The squid ink linguine was amazing and had bold beautiful flavours. If you are looking for real Italian flavor and fresh pasta, don't waste your time at those other restaurants, go to Brooklyn's Bistro.
My compliments to the chef and to the great service we received. The restaurant changes their menu based on seasonal ingredients, so everything you order will be fresh. All around a wonderful experience!

Phenomenal, unique twist on foods
I judge Italian restaurants on the quality of their margherita pizza. Brooklynn's version, though unique from others I've had by the incorporation of sea salt, was exceptional.

There have been many restaurants that have tried to make a go of it at this location. Brooklynn's seems to have the right combination of good food, ambience, friendly service and convenient location for workers. I've been there often for lunch and always satisfied.

Food is amazing! BUT.....
.....the service is 'hit or miss'. We've been to Brooklynn's several times, and sometimes the service is wonderful and other times not so wonderful. On our last visit, our waitress walked past our table to get to a table behind us several times (to attend to the needs of the people who were at that table) - without asking US if we needed anything. We each could have ordered several more cocktails, and would have - had we been asked. Then, even though it was only 10:15pm on a Saturday night, people started sweeping the floor beside our table, making us feel like we should be leaving. Although, having said that, perhaps the restaurant closes at 10:30? I don't know.

I came across this restaurant on the internet as a few of us were going to MTC and wanted something close by for dinner. With this being the first time there, I must say it was awesome. Great food, service, and just a great place all around!
We will be definatly coming back again.

We had dinner at Brooklynn's to celebrate our 7 year anniversary and it was wonderful! Service was great, food was delicious and they even gave us free dessert which was totally mouthwatering!!

The menu was varied, with several items we had to decide from. Loved the fresh pasta in the pork shoulder special, and the mushroom risotto was yummy.
