We loved this little bistro! So quaint and cozy with lovely views of the nearby park. It was charming inside with French music playing and the food and wine was wonderful. We were thoroughly pleased with our dinner here and will be back soon!

Paultette is a gem! I only wish they had a liquor license as it would be a very nice place to have a cocktail - as someone who isn't that into beer or wine.

A little bit of France in Brooklyn. Very typical French bistro run by all Parisians. Service was friendly and terrific as was the food.

Ate here before Madonna concert. Very friendly and helpful staff. Had the halibut special, delicious. Liked the continental, corner restaurant vibe. Would eat here again.

The music was way too loud to have a converstation and also there was barely enough light to read the menu.

This is my go to French spot now. The wine selections is amazing and the food options are always delicious. My friend had just come down from rural New Hampshire and was absolutely thrilled. I cannot recall our waitress's name but all I can say is Thank you!!!

Quaint and friendly neighborhood restaurant in a park setting. Had a lovely 2 hour meal - delicious gazpacho, savory merguez couscous, and beautifully cooked trout almandine. The cheese board was an amazing dessert. We enjoyed the atmosphere very much!

I adore this place and I go there often! They even had a chamber music-duo last night, so fun. But they forgot to mark with Opentable that I kept my reservation and was there last night practically until closing of the kitchen. Kindly correct and clarify, thanks!

Terrific French Cafe & great choice for before/after performances at BAM complex. Always pleasant experience - this time the bouillabaisse was especially notable - very "light" with delicious sauce and aioli on crusty bread. Nice wine selection.

Our party of 5 was squeezed into a table for four. Meanwhile a table of 6 was empty for most of our time there and then later occupied by two people. It would've been a much nicer experience if we had space to sit comfortably.

This is a surprisingly great restaurant in an unlikely place, but close enough to BAM to make it an excellent choice for dining after a performance.

A pleasant spot my third time there. Service attentive. However, put off my happy hour limited to bar. We sat for full dinner and had to pay double what barstools were paying just a few feet away? Not cool.
