Le Barricou (a Southern French term for a small barrel of wine) opened in 2006 with the goal of serving affordable country style French fare and family style hospitality to our Brooklyn Community. Inspired by Brasseries of France and New York City, our repertoire delights itself in small producer wines, local beers, craft cocktails, natural proteins, artisanal cheeses, and bistro staples such as coq au vin, escargot, and moules frites. Le Barricou is open for Lunch and Dinner Monday through Friday with a highly regarded weekend Brunch. We feature daily specials at both Lunch & Dinner as well as a seasonally changing menu, and we offer private dining for groups in our wine lounge.

    The service was absurdly slow, our food was seeved cold, and after we asked the waiter to heat it for us it was served back cold again. No one offered to compensate us. We skipped dessert and went home.

    Ate here with four people for a birthday dinner early on a sat evening. Main courses were good and the menu had a good mix of options. House wine was poor with the white choice turning out to be a rather sweet sauvignon blanc. Service was poor and inattentive. Nice décor and layout but a little pricey for the whole experience.

    It wasn't my first time time at Le Barricou but I LOVED IT! Great place for brunch! Loved the cozy feel, open bar and long tables. Very spacious. The Eggs Benedict was really good. The pancakes are TOTALLY worth the hype. It was so delicious even though it took around 40-45 minutes to make, IT IS WORTH IT! I will definitely come back with my friends for the pancakes again, BEST pancakes I ever had. Super fluffy and moist! I really like the strawberry butter along with the berries, it went very well with the pancakes! It's a must try at Le Barricou!

    Came here for brunch with a party of 4, so we were able to try a lot of items on their brunch menu. Their pancakes are so fluffy and tastes phenomenal - just the right amount of crispy edges, buttery, and topped with strawberry buttercream! The coffee was good, but their teas all taste like water. We were happy with their Egg Benedict variations and selection (although the eggs came out cold) and the duck confit hash was good to share. Unfortunately, their service was absolutely HORRENDOUS... the older lady at the front (i assume to be the owner) was beyond rude! I waited 5 minutes just to be acknowledged, and even though she saw me, she kept ignoring me. Finally when I walked up, she made an face and said "ok, you need to move!" We were seated by another server at the back room, so I didn't see her again during my meal. It seems like they are understaffed, so some food came out cold and their service was very slow. The servers were not rude but lifeless, probably because they're all so tired and overworked!

    came here all the way from new jersey after seeing countless photos of their pancakes on instagram. i have to admit that these were worth it! very inexpensive considering the quality of food and all of the hype surrounding them. we went on a random wednesday for brunch, so it was nice and quiet, but i can imagine weekend brunch may be crowded.

    Quaint French bistro in Williamsburg. Lovely, efficient and unobtrusive service. Lamb ragôut was excellent! The portion was a tad bit on the small side but I'd definitely order it again. My companion devoured the duck confit. The creme brûlée was the perfect dessert. The restaurant is close to the G train - ideal for a leisurely stroll post dinner. Must come back to try the brunch menu.

    it was fair, the food was ok, the ambience kind of tired and dated, the back room is dark and dingy. Not my cup of tea, the prices were pretty reasonable though, the best thing we tried on the menu was the mac and cheese but that says a lot really, most people can cook a decent mac and cheese.

I highly recommend the escargot and the Green Beast cocktail. Also, and very importantly, the service is ON POINT. Best special occasion restaurant!

    Really enjoyed meeting this restaurant's cool chef from Detroit! We wanted to compliment him on the perfection of our dining experience. From the beet salad & escargots starters to the luscious main course of Hake with beurre blanc and sorrels, every bite was divine. We loved this place...so happy to find a quintessential french bistro close to our new Brooklyn home. We will return and bring friends!

    Waitress must have either been new or high. Didn't know what drinks we ordered, clearly forgot about our food because the manager came rushing over a Luke warm piece of meat, and when we ordered a carafe of wine she never brought it over. My wife and I love this place, but this will keep us away for a little while. (Escargot is still the best tho)

    I went with three other women. We all started off with french onion soup which was great. We were all pleased with our meals. One of my friends got a cocktail that was nothing like she expected. The waitress was really nice and took it back for her so she could get something she'd enjoy more. Friendly staff and great food!

    My partner and I have dined here several times and we loved it each time. Every single dish we have tried has been outstanding. We love the oysters (esp. NY & Long Island), bone marrow appetizer and beet salad. Our favorite entrees are the skate, hanger steak and fries (actually it's more delicious than the more expensve cote du bouf), and grass fed burger. Brunch is also amazing, as are dessert. The house red wine is also deicious and not pricey. The flourless chocolate cake dessert is one of my favorite desserts in NYC. Service is perfect. Helpful but not intrusive. We will be regulars for sure.
