The mussels were very good. But then we received our croquettes. They were almost frozen in the middle. The steak which we ordered mid rare was very rare with no fat rendered. It was so incredibly chewy that I had to spit a bite out.
The service is great and the place looks nice inside. Seems like they probably fired their head chef or something so someone very inexperienced is cooking the food. If they charged half the price it might be a good spot for after work drinks and a chat.
Great atmosphere and fantastic food. Love this place.
The food was delicious, service - nice and unobstruding
Loved our Thanksgiving celebration. Great food and very welcoming service. Will make this our tradition.
Lovely space, super friendly service and delicious food! Very happy with our visit.
Amazing! This is the best upscale restaurant in Brooklyn! Michelin-worthy!
Lovely evening with delicious food. Took the waitress's advice and we had no regrets!
The service and food were excellent..
fantastic food at a hidden gem! Try the steak with cheese eclair - divine
Great French food. Frog legs and escargots, anyone?
It had been a while since we’d been to L’Antagoniste, but we’ll be back again soon. The food was outstanding - classic, but modern and absolutely delicious - and the service was great too. It was the perfect way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the day we met.
Everything was perfect. Cannot wait to go again :)
We’ve been here quite a few times before and it was always very good
This was our first time back post COVID and everything surpassed my previous experiences
The good was excellent and the ambiance is fantastic
Very nice neighborhood dining - with a European feel, well worth a visit
Good food, nice ambiance. I love the garden area in the back, it is so cute. Food is always really good and staff is nice. Couldn't ask for more. Nice wine selection too.
we made a reservation at 9:30 and the restaurant closed at 9:30. the waitress told us 2 of the items we wanted to get were sold out and to come earlier next time. our food was over cooked and rushed. nothing special. plenty of better places in the area.
Really nice relaxed farm to table vibe in my own backyard!
Lovely food, generous portions, and friendly service.
Are you kidding me? This place is amazing. Food service ambiance the whole experience is phenomenal. I recommend it to everyone I know. Never disappoints and always a place I enjoy and look forward to going back to. The mussels are incredible! Everything about L’Antagoniste is outstanding.
The staff was warm and attentive. The food was excellent. Will definitely be back!
The hype was just hype. This restaurant is honestly beautiful, the lighting is perfect, and the backyard has romantic feels. Then there's the food and the service. Two words my friends, slow and cold. Our food was very slow to come out and when it did it was cold, and probably sitting somewhere for a while. Not worth the money, or the weird service of an awkward waiter. Oh, and this food would have been thrown into a Parisian alley if served at any authentique bistro.
Taking this platform to give Café Paulette in Fort Greene props for being delicious, consistent, well priced, and having a socially adjusted staff.
Excellent French cuisine. You’d never expect a place like this to exist where it does.
L'Antagoniste has never disappointed me; the food quality is great, the service is excellent, the plates are generous and super delicious, L'Antagoniste is a true Bed-Stuy gem.
The duck was truly amazingly good. The drinks were great and the wine list was both excellent and compassionately priced. We had a wonderful time.
loved everything about the evening. might have something to do with the fact that we have only been out on one date since the beginning of the pandemic, but whatever. food was on point, service was on point, setting was on point. lovely experience all together.
Backyard is beautiful and charming. Food was phenomenal and not overpriced for the quality. We had a delicious Pinot noir as well. Staff is always so kind.
Perhaps the best steak tartare I've ever had, which the chef was nice enough to come out and talk to us about when I asked the server how they did it. Wonderfully fresh oysters. INCREDIBLE wine list loaded with reasonably-priced gems.
Lovely covered garden area. Felt like we were back in France !
Katya is the best! She was such a wonderful host to us on such a special evening (I had just proposed to my partner). We will have to come back! Everything was wonderful.
Fantastic restaurant. Beautiful food. Great service. Good wines. Will return time and time again.
Delicious french food in a cute space! Definitely planning on going back.
The food was fantastic! Would highly recommend the steak tartare and the duck entrée. Not typically one for oysters either, but they were delightful.
Service on the other hand felt a bit disjointed; our server had a bit of an anxious energy even though the restaurant was relatively empty when we first came in, and we felt rushed at some points and then forgotten at others. We were celebrating a birthday and there was no acknowledgement of it, we had been sitting with dead entree plates for a while and then the check took a bit of time to receive as well.
European chef opened a French restaurant in Bed Stuy 6 years ago. Real French style food. Best Steak Tartar ever. Must try
This place is a hidden gem. It’s located in bed stuy on a nice quiet block. Service and food was beyond incredible. I will recommend to all that want amazing food with impeccable service! I will definitely visit again.
Fantastic evening all around. Food and service were perfect. Very thoughtful touches by the servers. It’s what neighborhood restaurants are all about. Recommend very highly.
Great food. Our server wasn’t very friendly, but the food was yummy and prompt.
We went to L’Antagonist for our anniversary. They’ve received us with a champagne glass and a cozy table in their garden. Food a d drinks were great, service was awesome. Recommended for special occasions
The brunch portions were small and the menu fairly limited. The burger was great and a very generous size, while the French toast and omelette were on the smaller size. The duck hash was a VERY small portion, had more caramelized onion then duck, and was extremely salty.
Lovely covered garden with well-spaced tables, good food, attentive servers, a lovely brunch.
We had brunch with a large party. Everybody loved their entrees, the covered outdoor setting was really nice, and the service could not have been better. A great experience.
