Had reservations at 8:30pm today and when I arrived at the restaurant at 8:00 it was closed. Lights were off and chairs were turned upside down on the tables. And I got a confirmation the day before to confirm my reservations.
Will never go back to try it. No one called me to let me know the restaurant was closed on a Friday night.
Winded up going to Antica Pesa one of my favorite restaurants and ended up having a nice night and dinner.

Made a reservation for 14th Feb, when we arrived the reastaurant was closed. Id advise calling ahead first. Eaten here many times before and no prior complaints

Made a reservation for Valentines evening at 7pm through open table. Showed up and the restaurant was closed. No sign stating why. Just closed.

My wife and I came here before heading to a show at Brooklyn Bowl. The food was OUTSTANDING - the dishes were cooked quite literally to perfection and were even plated delicately. I notified them I was celiac and they helped guide me through the gluten free options. We had the Brussel Sprout Salad and Sausage to start (Both amazing, I preferred the sausage) and then I had the gluten free Short Ribs which were out of this world (it had a perfect crust) and my wife had the handmade pasta- she said it was so light it didn't even feel like she was having pasta. We will 100% come back and intend on showing friends this Williamsburg gem.

Not great! We ordered avacado toast and it took Almost forty minutes. The staff was under staffed and not attentive at all. Very disappointed.

We ejoyed brunch yesterday at the Fat Goose. The food [ mushroom omelette and French toast] was terrific. The service was friendly.
Very relaxing and cozy place on a snowy day.

Slow to bring cocktails and the check was wrong, took them very long for fixing the right amount

Chill spot for a date. Get there early and get to know your server. You’ll be treated like a star the rest of the evening.

I personally like this place. It's a good spot for a regular date with someone you've been dating for a few dates +

Beautiful restaurant but menu was lacking for such an ambiance.

Great find only a couple of blocks from the water and a park. Started with an excellent Bloody Mary followed by home made and hot out of the oven biscotti. Everyone's egg dishes were cooked perfectly. The home fries were crispy to perfection. Will definitely be back.

Went back third time. Food is still good but the portion of the food is inconsistent. Some entree e.g. The scallops plate we ordered had 3 scallops and they were small. It would be better at least there were 4 scallops. The duck entree is bigger in compared to all the other plates we ordered. The menu has very small selection and it is either you like them or don't. Our waitress was nice and always smiling but some other staff were dull faces. I may go back and hope the next time they have some improvements on their menus and the staff can be more welcoming.

Went to Fat Goose for brunch and both of our egg dishes came out cold. In addition, there was no seasoning on the eggs, making them very bland. Service was scattered - it seemed that there were only two people running the whole restaurant. It's a shame because the restaurant has great decor and is in a ideal location.
