Excellent service, food could be better...crispy skin on fish, not soggy, and seasoned better...especially artichoke and fish. However the ravioli was excellent. I wasn’t wowed by the food though. More

Contemporary American | Park Slope, Brooklyn

Restaurant is walking distance from our home but we do not go frequently. The food is excellent, well prepared and artful. They are creative in several ways and the food is slightly different from the description in a positive way. The service was good early in eve but the waitress forgot about our coffee when she was too busy. The only negative was the bread. Initially it was heated old bread, a bit stale. But waitress brought out new bread 30 minutes later when asked. The price is reasonable for the food and the prix fixe is a good choice with the right price. More

Italian | West Village, Manhattan

I visited on a Wednesday evening with my friend and requested a quiet table for conversation. It was not too busy at 6:30-9 so any seating would’ve worked fairly well. My friend ordered two appetizers and I ordered an entree for myself. I have a garlic allergy and the waiter helped confirm with the kitchen which dishes I could choose from. We each got a glass of rose, which was delicious, but we were kind of bummed that happy hour was limited to bar seating only...probably would’ve gotten more drinks if it was for tables as well. The food was delicious and the service was attentive, though perhaps a little rushed, only considering how it wasn’t busy at all that night. Overall a very pleasant experience and I would return, though perhaps for bar seating. More

I have been to this restaurant twice with several friends as a pre-theater dinner get together with 4-5 friends. The menu is not extensive, but what they serve is consistently delicious. All of our meals arrived in plenty of time and were perfectly cooked to everyone's specifications. All of us thought that this was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. Highly recommended!

Morgan's BBQMorgan's BBQ
$$$$
Barbecue | Prospect Heights, Brooklyn

Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue brings you the very best food, drink, and atmosphere in the Lone Star tradition. Brisket, ribs, and pork smoked ‘low and slow’ in fire-burning pits, but with a craftsmanship and attention to quality and detail that can only come from people dedicated to hospitality and the art of Texas-style bar-b-cue.

If beer and BBQ were all Morgan’s did, we would already be the best restaurant serving ‘cue in the Brooklyn area. Add to that an original menu that features regional classics done right—house-smoked queso, tacos and sliders, pecan pie—alongside a deep well of liquor and beer knowledge provided by a staff that knows and cares about having a good time…well, you’ve got yourself not just a restaurant but a destination.

Get there early, we sell-out often, and stay late, because we always have a good time.More
