I discovered Le Garage about a month ago and have been back 4 times now. I love this place!
The space is attractive and modern, and also has outdoor seating on a quiet street. The owner and chef are a French mother/daughter team, and the French inspired cuisine is delicious and artfully presented. Their roast chicken for two is the best I've ever had in NYC, and the classic dishes such as the braised leeks and foie gras terrine are spot on. A recent Sea Bass dish was also about as good as it gets . I don't think Le Bernardin could have done better on that dish. One night I was with two very picky people who manage high end restaurants in Manhattan, and they raved about the fish as well. The wine list is limited, but it is carefully chosen. All the wines I've had have been excellent and priced reasonably. The service is friendly and every night I've been one or both of the owners have been there in the kitchen and/or working the dining room. It reminds me of great small restaurants in Paris, where the proprietors attend to every detail . Given the prices for both food and wine, I can't think of a better fine dining value in NYC at the moment. This is a neighborhood gem, and also a restaurant worthy of a trip to Bushwick.

Had a lovely meal here last Saturday
The ceviche was very good, as was the light and pleasant watermelon salad. The hangar steak was great, and the branzino fish special was also very tasty. Wines and non alcoholic drinks were quite nice. Dessert was a bit disappointing - the chocolate cake was a bit dry, and the pineapple was a bit plain.
Service was knowledgeable and attentive.
Overall - excellent - and we will return.

Terrible service, never asked for main courses! Instead the entire staff was hanging out. It got to the point where we had to walk up to the bar and pay our tab and left hungry!

What a gem of a place! Met a friend here for dinner the other night and we enjoyed every dish. The ceviche appetizer was a standout, would highly recommend, as was the fish of the day. Love the atmosphere and vibe in the place as well. Everyone was attentive without being intrusive and the indoor outdoor feel was perfect on a beautiful August night.

So happy to have found this restaurant. The open "walls" made for a lovely dining experience outside. The chicken for two was cooked to perfection (those mashed potatoes-yummm!) and Rachel made our first time here a delight. I envision this being my new neighborhood go-to.

Once again we had a lovely time at Le Garage in Brooklyn, welcomed as always by Rachel, and wonderful staff. We enjoy the simple and friendly European experience and lovely food choices. Bon Appetit... and so happy about the French election results. We will be back soon I hope.

Perfectly roasted chicken is just one of the classic French bistro items on the Le Garage menu. You can taste the love in the food here, from the trout rillettes to the soups to the dessert mousse.

Le Garage is my favorite Bushwhick restaurant. The owners always remember us and make sure we're taken care of during our meal. The "Organic Chicken for Two" is unbeatable. And, as someone who doesn't care for brunch, I would happily brunch here.

Le Garage is the best find we've had in months. We took a bet on a restaurant outside of Williamsburg and we are very glad we did. Le Garage delivered in every possible way - welcoming staff, decor, drinks, & food. The food and service especially shined through. It's very obvious the owner and staff are passionate about their restaurant and eager to please their guests. We will definitely come back!

Came here in a recent rainy Saturday. Totally worth the trip in from downtown Manhattan. Service so friendly and room is low-key and not trying so hard to be hip. Recommend the Hangar steak with potatoes

I love Le Garage. I discovered it looking for restaurants after a visit to "The Grand Paradise" and found it an unexpected gem. It rivals any great restaurant in Manhattan and you feel extra special because it's in the middle of a rising part of Bushwick.

We ordered panisse, the fried chickpeas, to start, but our server wasn't happy with how long it was taking to make, so he surprised us with the snack of radishes. I loved the cream of zucchini soup (a special of the day) and halibut with a scallop (the fish of the day). Service was attentive and top-notch.

I won the kudos of my friends, who loved finding a new, emerging gem. Jaded New Yorkers can discover this hot spot, too!
