The steak was amazing and you didn't need a steak knife to cut it - a butter knife was all that was needed. It melted in my mouth. The side dishes were not very large, especially when we got the garlic mashed potatoes for two - and they were not the best I have ever had. But did I mention how incredible the steak was?

It's been a few since I've been to DeStefano's, but it was just as good as I remembered. Steaks were perfectly cooked, and the sides were delicious. I will be back!

I've been coming here for a while and the food never ceases to amaze me. I've brought my friends for dinner and it blows their minds off. They all love the home feel and the food is just spectacular.

Absolutely loved my first dining experience at Destefano's. Food was delicious, service was excellent and attentive and ambiance was perfect for my meeting with a coworker. Would definitely come back!

I was here 2 Fridays ago & as usual was not disappointed. This visit my fiance & I opted for separate entrees, rather than sharing the Porterhouse. He had a veal chop (amazing!!) & I had filet mignon (slightly overcooked for medium rare - just a heads up). Next time I'm not sure if we will go back to Porterhouse or try other options...but I am sure that we will leave satisfied & happy!

Chose DeStefano's while visiting our daughter. Steaks were as advertised...and we chose the 8 oz petite filet which was more than adequate for our appetites. The sides we're proportionately large and well prepared. Service was attentive but not spectacular or noteworthy. The noise level was disturbing with communication somewhat difficult. Overall however DeStefano's was a good experience and we'd probably return.

With no exaggeration at all this restaurant serves the best steak I have ever had. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. A real find. 10/10

We had porterhouse for two and it was superb! The cook knows what medium rare is and serves his food with pride. The personal service by the owner makes you feel like one of the family.

Going to DeStefano's for dinner has always been a great experience and continues to exceed expectations. If you enjoy a relaxing ambience, with fantastic customer service from a management team that actually appreciates customers, coupled with one the best steaks and entrees you will find in Brooklyn or NYC, then I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The staff was attentive, but not overbearing or pretentious. We ordered the filets and they were cooked as we ordered and were very tender. We do not eat late so we arrived and were taken to our table when we arrived. We were tourists to New York from Ft. Lauderdale and were glad we had chosen this restaurant. If we visit New York again, we will again visit the restaurant. Thank you.

I had dinner here on 7/23/14. Reservation was for 5pm. I was a little late however after calling the Restarunt and speaking with the hostess I was assured they would hold my table. So at 5:15 I arrived, we were greeted with smiles, and seated immediately. The sever was very nice and attentive. The food was really good. The crab cake, and BBQ shrimp appetizers were delicious. My Cesar salad was a little salty however; the anchovies were a nice addition. My entree was the lobster ravioli, it was seasoned and cooked well. My daughters entree was the petit 8oz Filet Mignon, even though she asked for it to be well done, the steak was very tender. The baked potato and spinach sides were also very good. The wine was good, and the cream brûlée cheesecake was perfect.
If your looking for an unpretentious place with great food, and service, a quiet, casual, intimate atmosphere; I recommend DeStefano. I will be returning, the Chicken Cordon Bleu is calling my name lol.

DeStefano's in Williamsburg is off the beaten path but provides food and service on par with all the great NYC steakhouses.
