Good location next to the park for a nice walk after dinner. The ambiance was beautiful but the table three of us were given was a tiny two person table even though we made reservations for dinner. I also loved the food, I managed to pick what I wanted, but would have been happier with a couple more items on the menu.
Great food, service was amazing. They have Organic wine on their list!!!
Hands down will always be my favorite spot for wine and the best pasta, salad, vegetarian and meat plus brunch!!!! Staff is wonderful and always so quick to get food on the table. Love this place.
It was a beautiful night, the outdoor space is gorgeous if only just a little cramped but no more than any other NY place. Absolutely delicious pasta, highly recommended the draft Prosecco as well!
Wonderful restaurant! Delicious food, great service, and a nice balance between formal and casual. A must try!
Amazingly delicious food. We had brunch and then went back for dinner the next night. We can highly recommend both Brunch and dinner menus
Great ambiance and even better food! Service was quick and attentive, and all of the food was fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back.
Delicious food and gracious service.
Can’t wait to return and try other specialities!
Food took 1.5hrs to arrive and server was awful. Cute garden but that’s about it
Yummy pasta. Decent wine. Great ambiance.
Overall a great little place. lush greens outside and cozy tables inside. My only complaint is the slight snippy attitude from the staff.
very slow service
Great neighborhood bistro - can always count on good and authentic Italian fare. Can get a little loud, esp if music is cranked but were nice about lowering the volume.
Food was a little on the bland side. Not much of selection
I'm grateful to the friend who recommended this spot. Everything was perfect. The whipped ricotta bruschetta and kale salad were divine. The homemade pasta was the perfect level of al dente. Not chewy and not too soft. Even the coffee was superb. Oh, and the tiramisu-flavored gelato from their outdoor cart?? That was the perfect finish. I 100% recommend Aurora.
They really improved their brunch game. Had the crab benedict which was excellent and the kale salad also really solid (might have used more flavor but really good). Their cocktails are also very well made and the wine list is quite reasonable, both in terms of selection and prices. Overall strongly recommended for a summer brunch!
The service was a bit disorganized. We had three different waiters serving our table of 2, and we had to flag them down. Overall food was good, but the poached eggs on one dish were unevenly cooked and one split open like a freshly cracked raw egg with uncooked yolk and whites running across the plate. The servers (plural!) didn’t seem to notice the dish sitting untouched on our table for 10 minutes, and didn’t seem enthused to remake it when I pointed out the issue.
They’re not particularly attentive or great on customer service, but hey it’s Williamsburg. The food is absolutely delicious and the setting is beautiful—try to sit out in the greenhouse if you can.
Everything was pretty much as expected. Only issue was they added a gratuity for our party and didn’t mention it so I gave an additional 20 percent.
Food was terrific especially the striped bass. Service was very good too - almost too fast!
Second time I’ve been and it won’t stop there. Everything was perfect.
Great food, ambience and service. Very busy so despite having a reservation we still had to wait about 20 min which was tough as a party of 8, including a 4 and 7 year old. As a table of 8, our meals also came out at different times which wasn't ideal (again, esp with kids!). But overall great experience and will always come back and recommend!
Def, a place to go more than one time, the food is delicious, the presentation of the plates, nice ambiance, family and kids friendly but also super romantic for a date!
we absolutely love Aurora!
Great past experiences (2); but the service for this event (brunch) for a group of 6 was bad. Black coffee was served hot but we made multiple requests for CREAM (did not have any) then milk came not just late but in a very small container enough for only 4 people. Business is important! but please do not sacrifice service !
Unfortunately, we were seated in a not so appropriate space due to water dripping from a pipe.
Being a server myself, wouldn’t hurt if the waitress smiled :/ overall great food!
Great. Highly recommended. Will visit again.
The staff at Aurora were great! They accommodated my outdoor seating req with a nice table in the garden.
Great Food! The wait staff amazing and the food super quick
It was a birthday celebration and we received an excellent table on the terrace. Everyone enjoyed except two things: our ankles were being bit by mosquitos or flies. Second was that the Kale salad was exceptionally small. Other than those two, it was lovely.
I would head to Williamsburg any day for the amazing food and atmosphere in this beautiful place. Everything was delicious, from the glass of dry Riesling and heirloom tomato salad to the fabulous fish dish and ricotta cheesecake to die for. My only complaint was the slow service, as our poor waitress was a bit stressed. Seeing the same all over the city, not enough staff to fill in now that we are back to "normal". Otherwise amazing; highly recommend, always.
The staff was so kind and accommodating about our birthday celebration and made the decorations and cake so easy! Plus the pasta was all amazing.
Unbelievable food, service, atmosphere, and vibe!
Great food and service. My waiter was a sweetheart
Amazing food and service!!
Good place to a birthday dinner
Everything was delicious. Wonderful garden setting. I found the staff generally rude.
Ambiance was amzing... food was on point!
It was great but it took some time on waiting for service!
Food was great, service was OK. Seemed like waiters forgot about us essentially.
