The atmosphere is great and the decor is beautiful. We went there for brunch and were there for over an hour and we got one drink. Our waitress brought our food and one drink and never came back again to check on us. The only time she came back was to bring the check.

She never even came over to see if our waters needed refilling, which they did, since we never got any other drinks.

I was really disappointed in the experience, but I will try it again one more time. I’m hoping it was just an off day for them.

Yes, the popcorn is delicious and habit forming. We also enjoyed the cornbread with honey and Victoria's pizza. Definitely recommend and will return.

The food was excellent as usual but the service was the worst that we had experienced at the restaurant. The meals arrived after long after we had ordered and my mom’s meal was incorrect two different times. Our guest’s meal was incorrect also. There was no apology or acknowledgement from the server. Not a dealbreaker for future visits but definitely a bummer.

Wonderful place to go! We had a great cocktail to start with and shared lots of small plates bc we could decide what to choose from. Everything is so good. The service was great and we met the owner who is absolutely charming. We’ll be back very soon!

Usually our absolute favorite place in the neighborhood, but last night was a “miss” overall.

Took forever for our server to come by to take our drink order, then forever to get those drinks. He seemed overwhelmed and a bit flustered all evening.... something was off.

Then our meal just wasn’t up to par. We have had some really terrific food here but not last night. The Special was salmon - altho’ not very special - not very inspiring and the sides weren’t good. The All Kale Caesar salad was tasty but that silly tiny bowl has GOT to go — it’s ridiculous to serve a big salad in that manner - half fell on the table! Our guest was very frustrated with it. My Duck and Date salad was delish as always....no problems there.

With the noise, a wobbly table and stressed service, we skipped dessert and another drink in favor of another spot... too bad. We’ll be back again soon, and hope it was a fluke!

We went for dinner during Restaurant Week, and our service was great. We ordered off the Restaurant Week menu, getting bue carpaccio and Vietnamese meatballs for the first course. They were outstanding. The carpaccio was gluten free. For the main course, we had the chicken breast (gluten free) and lamb with couscous (not gluten free), and they were both better than the first course. I am usually a slow eater, but I took my time because I wanted to savor the food for as long as I could. For dessert, we had the gluten free carrot cake and the pumpkin cheesecake. The dessert was the perfect size after a filling meal. We also ordered a cocktail, but I cannot remember the name. I do, however, remember the taste; it was delicious and wintery.

We came to get together with old friends to catch up. It is a very friendly environment., liked the urban decoration, good ambiance. We were a little concerned about the noise if it will interfere with our conversations, but I am pleased to say that it wasn't. Our server was fast, considerate and very good communicator, the manager walked around and show true care about their customers.

We dine at Brooklyn Girl frequently, this time was for my daughters 21st birthday. There was six of us and we needed a place that had something for everyone. The service was great, food was delicious and the the noise level inside was perfect, we caould all talk and hear each other. Great night, within walking distance of our house!

An early New Year's Eve dinner. One of the few places without a pre fix menu. Drinks here are always excellent. My husband ordered Braised short run and I had Salmon stuff with crab. Both excellent. We also ordered their corn bread with a honey comb in top. So delicious! No room for dessert so we got carrot cake to go. Great experience.
