About

We acquired the former Flushing Farms space from a friend of ours and looked to transform it into a bar and restaurant where everyone can enjoy sitting outside, sipping on handcrafted cocktails and enjoy our eclectic menu.

Lovely atmosphere! Good food to match. Not a ton of gluten free options besides salad, so something to consider if you’re gf.

I was in town for my 30th birthday. We had about 10 people. Service was fantastic! It was kind of a quiet night since it was a Monday but we really enjoyed ourselves! Will suggest to friends!

We loved Forest Point. We loved the nature, woodsy feel to the restaurant’s ambiance. Casual but hip and great music and cocktails. Quintessential Brooklyn. Loved the staff welcoming and attentive!

It was a literal zoo! I’m not sure how hygienic it is to have guests bring all manner of pets to dine with them and be amongst other guests who didn’t/wouldn’t factor in dogs being present. Pet hair gets into food and drinks and I’m not okay with consuming either. I should also add that some of these pets were also agressive; a pit started fighting with a previously seated couple’s dog. Both owners had to make several attempts to pull them apart. The table with the pit had about 7-8 humans and about 10 dogs! WHY???? This disgusting bunch was seated next to us. One small dog in that group also barked at and attempted to bite the server. Another of the more hairier dogs kept shifting and shaking. With each shift and shake, dog hair and dust would fly. There was loud barking throughout our dining experience. We also started getting bit around the legs....we prayed it was biting flies and not fleas from the dogs - who looked dirty and unkept. We sat there in disbelief. I’ve dined at Forrest Point before - several times. And, I’ve never experienced anything like last Sunday. I have an upcoming reservation there and will be cancelling. I won’t be back until management changes the pet policy. The NYC Department of Health needs to investigate this. None of it was clean.

Forrest Point provided our party with a memorable experience of surprise marshmallow roasting. The food was impeccable and the wait staff was attentive, humorous, and overall positive. I will absolutely dine here again.

Went for a 30th Birthday gathering! We weren’t the only ones with that idea! Our group ended up socializing with the other birthday group- it’s that conducive to a friendly atmosphere! We ordered lots and everyone was very satisfied with their choices- one thinking their meal topped anothers! The cocktails were fun and tasty!! Mine was the Moon Rabbit! It was so tasty, I affectionately began ordering it as “my moon bunny “! Made w/Gin and Rosemary and other interesting ingredients! The non-Gin lovers ended up loving my moon bunny too! Their were dinners to be had, but we all ended up getting sandwiches- mine kicked it out of the Park! It was eggplant and a grilled cheese served on a baguette with arugula and sliced tomatoes! I’d drive back there all over again for another! The seating was roomy, chairs comfortable and come the warmer weather there’s an outdoor seating area- not just tables stuck on the sidewalk! Nice lighting and festive atmosphere, with friendly Servers! It’s a place to go and kick back at, so don’t stress over the service, everyone is doing their best to make sure you have a good time!

Loved the food and the service! Attentive staff and I never felt rushed to leave after we finished out meal. My boyfriend and I were celebrating his birthday and he was in love with his choice of food. He had the salmon dish and I had French toast with homefries. Everything was beautifully cooked and tasted amazing. We will definitely return.

Service was slow but the food was delicious! We were quickly seated since we had reservations but once we sat down, it took 10 mins for someone to notice that we didn't have menus and bring over to us. Got the old McDonald burger and it was delicious.

I'd only ever been here for dinner which I remember being pretty good. Brunch was just so underwhelming though. There are too many places nearby to bother going back here for brunch

When we got there we were greeted with a Happy Anniversary and were promptly seated. The bartender also quickly came back with 2 glasses of champagne. The service was quick and attentive but not over bearing or rushed and the good was delicious.
