    I miss the old days. L’Antagoniste used to be a favorite, but we had an all around bad experience yesterday. First, we ordered a dozen oysters and only received 11. The waiter wasn’t very apologetic and said he’d only charge us for each oyster individually. He followed up with an excuse that the person shucking oysters was inundated with orders - there was only one other table with oysters at the time. Our entrees (mussels and a burger) took almost an hour - there were only three tables occupied in the restaurant at the time in addition to one person at the bar, who already had his food when we arrived at 6:20pm. Ironically, a large party of 6 who ordered at least 25 mins after us received their entrees before we did, but their appetizers arrived after their entrées. During the wait for our food a large rat scampered across the outside patio dining area - of course they can’t control this, but after poor service and a long wait this topped off an all around subpar experience.

    Probably the best French food I have ever had, Paris included. Amadeus was our waiter and she was kind, patient, and overall, phenomenal. Well priced for the quality you’re getting and it was a great birthday dinner, would come back in a heartbeat.

    As always the food and ambience were great, but I have to call out that they were super accommodating when most of our party got stuck in traffic. They held our reservation and were very gracious about it. I don't live in Brooklyn anymore but this is a go to when I'm here

    Went with 2 girl friends for a casual Sunday brunch. I was initially worried, because there were so few time slots available for online RSVP, but when we arrived we found the restaurant to be pleasantly busy but not crowded. Food and service were amazing, and the back patio is such a cute and secluded place for a nice meal.

    My return to L'Antagoniste since the pandemic hit in 2020 was welcoming -- like a warm hug from a good friend that you have missed for too long. The atmosphere is comfortable, charming and authentic. The service is welcoming, attentive but not intrusive. The meal (salads and the seared sea scallops and duck a l'orange) was exceptional, prepared with great care and presented beautifully. The wine list is extensive (many hard-to-find wines), with several selections at different price points. Our server's recommendation--a remarkable beaujolais--was a perfect choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our transformative visit to this lovely restaurant. We will be back soon!

    Don't sleep on the Salade du Marche. It's a big bowl of delicately and respectfully celebrated veggies greater than the sum of its parts. It's a must if you're following it with the fillet and fois gras special: a monstrous crime against God and man that you absolutely must try.
