We had a great time at Aurora. The vibe is sexy and hip, the crowd is stylish and beautiful. Food is outstanding, we had the octopus and Veal chop special which was more than enough for 2 people to share. Can't remember the name of the cocktail (that gives you an idea of the booze level..:) but it was akin to a black Manhattan and was a delicious, relaxing way to start the meal. We paired the Nebiollo with the veal and it was perfect. Tira mi su for dessert -sumptuous. The service was terrific and considering the staff had to deal with a massive torrential downpour in the middle of the busiest dinner service ever I'd say they handled it with much grace!
Very nice place with high quality food and service
Amazing Kale and Brussel Sprouts Salad.
Great food. Service was spectacular. I could not recommend this restaurant more highly. Plan to tell all my friends about Aurora. I chose it b/c it had great ratings and I was afraid it was going to rain. The garden area has a bit of a roof over it. Had beautiful weather and a terrific dining experience. Everything from drinks to appetizers to main course and service were just the best.
The food here is always excellent, and the place is charming (plenty of outdoor space for these covid times), and the service is great. We always have the octopus for an appetizer, and for an entree I had the rigatoni carbonara with guacinale and truffles. Was really surprised by how much truffle I got with the dish. This is usually the kind of thing where you'd get a token shave or two. But my dinner with covered with it. (I actually would have preferred more meat and less truffles, but that's not something one should complain about.)
The food was delicious, the patio is very instagramable. The service was great, friendly staff, just don’t go on a busy day. The place feels cozy and safe during covid but it is a bit snug.
I am never disappointed by Aurora, the food is great, their backyard is amazing and the service is polite and respectful.
It’s was great. Loved the atmosphere. Server was good. Food was a little slow. Could be because it was busy. The food was okay. Apps were a tad bit greasier than usual but overall had a great experience.
Yummy pasta and a gorgeous garden. Sweet date night
Love this place! It was our first date day out since the pandemic started and it was perfect. Their outdoor garden is as beautiful as ever and food was delicious.
Really nice outdoor garden, restaurant is doing a good job with covid safety. A little pricey but good atmosphere, cocktails and food. Will go again!
very sweet and considerate staff and perfect setting for my evening. will go again !
Dinner was amazing! We loved the drinks, highly recommend the Grand st.
Food was outstanding! Garden seating was perfect. Service was friendly.
My friends and I went for brunch on a Saturday. Food and beverages were good and tasty. For drinks I ordered a “Domino” that is based on tequila and watermelon and it was very refreshing. I got the ravioli which were really good. The ambiance was nice not too loud not too quiet and The service was nice. They took some time to give us the bill but it was pretty busy for brunch so it was okay. Other than that it was a nice experience. Will def come back.
The best steak
Place is beautiful!
Food is delicious.
I had couple of issues with service.
I was charged five times.
On my birthday I was calling my bank to resolve the issue.
Waitress made me feel uncomfortable as she picked her own tip.
Highly recommended with a large range of brunch options. Great service
Had a great vibe and service was great! Food was really good and portions were big.
I don’t really love Brookyln but I do come over for this restaurant. Their grilled octopus is some of the best I have ever had. Everything is fresh and home made. Hidden gem in Williamsburg!
The food is divine & the decor is magical. Perfect date spot!
It was nice to be out for dinner with my bestfriend after the stay at home process for months. I called the day before we planned on having dinner to make a reservation but the times on open table and their website differed. So, I wanted to make sure we wouldn’t get there after booking through open table and it be closed. The person I spoke to was a little stand offish with answering questions and then told me I couldn’t leave a reservation with him I would have to go through open table only (?). Then arriving, the host I guess? Was the same a little standoffish and unfriendly. I’m guessing we can i between lunch and dinner as we had 2 different servers from one minute to the next. I would come back and it another try due to COVID I’m sure throwing other restaurants just like my own into the air facing new on the run ways of doing things but COVID shouldn’t have effected customer service. Smiles, especially at this time go a long way!
We celebrated a Birthday and everything was exceptional.
Very good all the time. Nice staff and good garden to eat in with some privacy and non middle of street vibe during this outdoor dining necessity
I cannot wait to come back, such delicious rich tasting plates and menu!
Server was wonderful! Seated promptly. Well constructed and beautiful glass barriers between tables. Outdoor garden lovely. Beautiful food. Wine list great but not good for people who don’t really know wine. Could use some more descriptions etc, trim it down a bit. Great calamari and pasta! Can’t wait to dine here again!
This is an AMAZING date night spot! Great food! 🙂
amazing food and service. Seasonal dishes and lovely wait staff.
Aurora was just what we needed for our first time eating lunch out in a long time!
The garden setting is lovely, atmosphere is relaxed but lively enough, and the screens set up between tables made us feel really comfortable without ruining the vibe. In fact...they should just be a standard feature everywhere from now on.
The food was excellent - prosciutto and burrata to start, fettuccini special with shaved truffle, and a perfect traditional tagliatelle bolognese.
The domino cocktail and a local IPA were good accompaniments and the only downside is that we didn’t have time to stay for the tiramisu!
One of our favorite spots
The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was lovely, there was plenty of hand sanitizer, and the tables were very well-spaced. Thank you!
The best place for perfect date,
Beautiful outdoor space. The food was extremely tasty and unique. We got something that looked like risotto (?) balls as an appetizer which were incredible. I was trying to be healthy so I got the vegetarian sunny side up egg on ricotta and veggies and it was sooo tasty — zero regrets. My friends got the eggs benedict’s which were also absolutely amazing. Only negatives were that two out of four of the dishes arrived way earlier than the others but we got two free drinks to compensate. The service was friendly, outdoor space beautiful and food delicious so will definitely be back.
Great place! Good food,Amazing service ! We had a very good time with our friends, Recommend!
Amazing service and always great good
The food was incredible. Thank you so much to Aurora for a beautiful and safe garden meal after so many months spent inside. Will definitely be returning.
We loved the garden!
Lovely return to dining on a weekday afternoon. I was pleased to discover it is the same ownership as another favorite restaurant of mine, Evelina in Fort Greene. Great drinks, amazing food, low key.
Amazing food! Beautiful garden vibes! Food is a little overpriced for the quantity but it is delicious!
