Met a friend here for brunch. It was kind of half way between both of us, and I just picked it at random. But I'm glad we came, the food was really good. The menu looked great, there were many things that I wanted to try but settled for the pumpkin and farro salad. It was so good, I've been looking online to try to make my own version at home. If I'm in the neighborhood, I wouldn't mind trying Hunter's again.

Great food. Very inventive menu. We loved everything we had. The Treviso and Butter Lettuce Salad, Warm Kale Salad, the Butternut Squash Ravioli. Then we all had the Hamburger. The burger meat was absolutely delicious. Everything was perfectly cooked. We also had the Polenta (2D4) and the Nutella Bread Pudding. Perfect dining experience. Can't wait to return. Great service. Warm and cozy atmosphere.

We were looking for a new place to it in Downtown, Cobble Hill area and happened on reviews of Hunters. We liked the menu and gave a try. GLAD WE DID!. We all agreed was a good new find and will become a new favorite. Liked that they had healthy but hearty choices. Everything was nice prepared and the wait staff so friendly and fun.

Went there twice in 1 week, once after reviewing Open Table and the other at their recommendation of coming back for their 2 year anniversary last Friday. The first meal was perfect and the thing was amazing, specials that were delicious and healthy and just a great positive vibe. Definitely a place people care about and are cared for... lots of big groups in the back, seems made for that.

I like the truffle fries, the Hanger steak was great and so is the butternut squash - food portions are a bit small so order sides sweet potatoe mash is delicious.
I love their wine list they have reds and whites from some of my favorite places in Napa and Sonoma.

I've been coming back to hunters since forever because of 1- the best kale salad in the neighborhood 2 - truffle fries and Mac n cheese 3 - cocktails (and their concoctioneers) and 4 - vibe never disappoints.

The new fall menu is great and they are just too darn nice..

Had an amazing little night at hunters last Tuesday.. Went with a college friend and wanted to show her a special brooklyn night.. The food here is just ridiculous and different and one of the neighborhood best, and the drinks and kids working never disappoint. Wanted to follow up with clover club and make it a whole day but sadly they were closed. More drinks at the bar - still tasting that katniss everdeen...

Great spot, thanks guys.

I got the mushroom sandwich an that's just what it was. A dry baguette with mushrooms on it. It was pretty boring and tasteless. The fries were good and my Bloody Mary was great but t sat at the bar for almost 10 minutes before the bartender had to bring it to me. Our waiter disappeared for basically the whole time. There were only a few tables so I'm not sure what was up but the service could have been much better. I would come back to try the brunch menu.

A perfect little night out - a girlfriend and I went on the first day of their new menu launch and it was exciting to try some of their new dishes. Definitely excitement in the air about it and good vibes which we appreciated. Plus they gave us a sneak preview of one of the new cocktails they have planned for the spring - awesome. Lots of fresh veggies on the new menu - definitely appreciate it.

We enjoyed our dinner at Hunters - we all really loved our plates. However, everyone was left saying "we wish we'd had more of that" especially for the price (ie)14$ for a grilled kale salad with a sliver of squash and some chickpeas on a little salad plate and a mac and cheese main that comes in a side dish tiny ramikin'). If you go however, I would suggest ordering the nutella bread pudding - it was delicious, and massive (larger than any of the main dishes actually!) I don't think we'll head back for a major dinner again but maybe wine and dessert.

Staff was great super accommodating and attentive.

Came to Hunter's with 7 friends, and was really impressed with the service they were able to provide for a big group. They offered us a charcuterie appetizer for the whole table, and brought it out on a massive serving tray created from wrought iron and tree trunk. It was a feast fit for the kings of Westeros!

Went here for valentines day dinner with the gf. Didn't expect there to only be the valentines day menu which is 65 a person. The food itself is okay but I've had better, for less money. At the end the waitress also put a 20% tip for herself, included in the bill. It's valentines day so I didn't want to complain too much in front of the gf, but I will probably never come back or recommend this place for any friends.

I love Hunter's for dinner but was quite disappointed by their brunch. Normally huevos rancheros are my go-to at any restaurant, but these weren't great - they definitely need more salsa/tomatoes/cheese/etc (were just beans and eggs!).

Have come here twice on an anniversary and a birthday and have been wowed both times. I came originally because I knew the chef came from a favorite spot in the city and things here are even better than they were over there. The food is just incredibly well-sourced and totally delicious and the cocktails could possibly duke it out with those across the street at the clover club. Very romantic scene, the lighting, the design and feel of the place really make it stand out that way. I'll keep going again and again, thanks Hunter's!

The food was average, but the bloody mary was fantastic. I had the huevos rancheros, my boyfriend had the Hunter's benedict, and our guest had the kale salad. The kale salad looked delicious and I will definitely try it on a return visit.

The restaurant itself was VERY loud. I made a reservation for 11:30 as my boyfriend and I were meeting our friend to discuss career transitions. We were seated next to a party of 10 where no one talked softer than yelling. It made having a conversation at our table rather difficult and I often found myself yelling to be heard. The front of the restaurant seemed to be quieter and I definitely wish we'd have been sitting there.

Overall the food was average, drinks were good, and noise was LOUD.

This is a fav spot in the neighborhood; it was a freezing evening and Hunter's was warm and welcoming. I usually pop in during the week, when it's quiet, but it was Saturday night and I was happy we got a reservation. However, they were running late so we had to wait about 15-20 minutes for our table and the bar area is snug, so you constantly feel in the way of someone. We did sit and had a lovely dinner though.

The food was quite mediocre and over priced. The ravoli didn't seem homemade and was overcooked. The farro risotto wasn't seasoned well. The cheese plate was the decent. The cheeses are from Stinky next door and they could have chosen a better selection. The marinated beets and grilled kale salad were the best things we tried. They only had drip coffee and there was no herbal tea. Our server was incredibly helpful and nice and when she realized they didn't have herbal tea, she steeped mint leaves in hot water to make mint tea. The ambiance is nice if you want to get a drink but I would never go back to this restaurant for their food.

We had two great cocktails and beer (happy hour) and we thought they were moderately priced considering the quality. I could drink these hot spiced ciders with rum all night long! The food was also very good. The butter lettuce salad was nice and light. The boar pappardelle was delicious but difficult to eat out of a bowl. The burger and fries were also really good. The service was also great. We'll definitely be back. If only cocktails were also on happy hour, I'd be here every night!
