Enjoyed the food, but the service was not as attentive as should be. Don’t let that stop you from enjoying a good meal.

Went here for Valentines Day, and the restaurant was offering a special prix fixe menu. The food was below average for NYC Italian fare, and well below the quality one would expect for a $90 per plate price tag. The desserts in particular (panna cotta and tiramisu) were quite poor. Overall very unhappy with the quality of this restaurant.

We came out for Valentines day and they had a special menu which was very good but not quite as good as their regular menu. The bar poured out some free champagne while we waited which eased the blow of our 30 minute wait time.
I consider myself a 'foodie' and go out to dinner about 3x per week. By Brooklyn standards Convivium can be a bit pricey, but for me it is well worth it.
I've been coming here for years and they are very consistent with everything they do. It may well be the best restaurant in Brooklyn.

Hands-down the worst dining experience of my life. Made a reservation for Valentine’s day and thanks to a rude, unprofessional maitre’d, manager or whoever he was, the whole dinner felt like a total rip-off. We paid almost $300 for a special dinner which was spoiled when he rushed us out. Other couples had arrived before us and were graciously served but our food was clearly expedited and we were hurried out before my girlfriend could finish her glass of wine. We felt pressured to leave so I chugged mine so as to not create any problems. How an establishment could run this way is baffling to me. I am offended and wish I could have my money back as I feel robbed of this dining experience with lack of hospitality and sub-par food.

Let waiter know about gluten allergy and completely disregard the allergy even after we asked specifically if there was gluten in a dish. Very disappointing.

Tried 2 of their pasta dishes, both of which were slightly over cooked, and more disappointingly, bland. Also had the rack of lamb- it was cooked to the correct doneness as ordered, but flavor was not even as good as I can achieve at home myself.

Even including a substantial discount and a comp’d dessert, I would not return and recommend just paying more somewhere else for higher caliber quality and taste. For great pasta, go to L’Artusi for example.

Wonderful as always a real neighborhood gem. Warm and romantic rustic ambience. Terrific Iberian wine list that you don’t often see. The service is professional yet casual and warm.

Food was wonderful but felt staff was really speeding us along, taking plates away without asking, taking platters that were not empty, etc. they were pleasant enough, but just hurried. Also we ordered a bottle of wine and then were presented with a different bottle than ordered, a different vintage, but waiter said it’s the “same thing.” Would have been fine if he’d told us when we ordered that they’re carrying a different brand now, but no mention.

We have been to this restaurant 3 times, the first 2 times were amazing, which is why I chose to to have dinner there with some friends, all self described foodies. Unfortunately the food was not quite up to par that night, a chicken liver wrapped in bacon starter was definitely over-cooked and too salty. The octopus starter was delicious, albeit also too salty. My friends liked their pastas, the lamb was nice, but unlike the times we went before this event, the food was good but not amazing. Maybe the cook had an off night, this happens. But is still remains a nice restaurant, where you can hear each other talk, the service is pleasant enough, not wow, but not bad, the wine was very nice, we had plenty of it. So, it being quiet and romantic, and still one of the better restaurants in this neighborhood, I will go again. And ask them to hold back a bit on the salt. And not have the chicken livers.

Let me preface this review by saying the food was extraordinary and the service would be quite acceptable if not for the fact that I made a note beforehand that it would be a birthday gathering. A small cake or other gestures would have been appreciated, but I certainly would not “penalize” them for not offering them. I was disappointed in the staff for making us wait for almost five minutes unattended while we could clearly see our table. Making things worse, the server just happened to interrupt me to order food while I was making a speech to my friends who were reunited with me here after 5 years. It’s for this special moment that I reserved a cozy, small place like Convivium Osteria, and I was disappointed to see that moment ruined. It really is a pity that the excellent food and otherwise decent service were significantly undone.

This was a New Years Eve Dinner at 9:15PM. By 11:15pm we were basically done and left half hour before midnight.
My food was fine-- my partner's steak was so overcooked that he left 1/3 of it. He ordered medium rare. The table we were sitting was in the middle of the main transit for all the restaurants' activity and practically on top of a corner table. I was asked to move, while having my meal, in order to let people come in. Was told to, please move, but not given a moment to put my fork down, while the table is wisked out of the way. No apologies.
"Lets feed them and throw them out" seemed to be the message here. $145.00 per person with tax/tip
Not again.

My specific instructions I left on opentable was this is a "birthday dinner". We could have been walk ins and received the same service. The waiter didn't even go over any wines for us when the wine selection is triple the size of the menu. We planned to stay after dinner for drinks as she had friends coming to wish her a happy birthday but we decided to go else where as the service there was ice cold. (We had great service the first time we went there) Overall the food is excellent and consistent! Too bad the service doesn't equal to the chef's effort.

Extremely warm, welcoming atmosphere. We ate downstairs in wine cellar and enjoyed quiet space and very attentive, engaging waitress. Food was excellent, creative and tasty. Wine list has bottles under $40 and food prices are reasonable. My out of town, sophisticated friends enjoyed everything about experience as did I.
