About

In its bright and rustic setting, Lighthouse serves contemporary American cuisine with an inventive twist. Appetizer options, perfect for sharing with your dining companions, include the cured meats platter and the homemade pickles. Dinner plates feature the sasso chicken with green garlic, the baby octopus with fava beans and salsa verde and the flat iron steak with smoky potatoes. Lighthouse also serves brunch, with a slew of unique and well-prepared items, such as the shakshuka with poached eggs, tomato chile and toast and the chilequiles, a corn tortilla filled with queso and tomatillo salsa.

Lighthouse also has a popular selection of prix fixe meals. Try one of Lighthouse's creative meals with an equally creative cocktail, like the good & plenty, a wicked combination of tequila, absinthe and lime.

They were very accommodating with a last-minute reservation for a large party on a Saturday night. Food was interesting and a fairly good value. Worth checking out, particularly with a large group that wants to have small portions of a variety of dishes.

Lighthouse is perfect for almost anything. It' s where I take people from out of town when I want to impress them, where I can drop in for a casual dinner, or even have a fancy romantic night. Good cocktails, amazing food, warm people, and generally relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. I really don't know what more you could want in a restaurant. This place is all of the bees knees.

Food was delicious but the restaurant was FREEZING. It felt marginally warmer than the outdoors, and valentine's day night was freezing. We had reservations and wanted to do their pre fixe menu. I think we should have been warned in advance that the restaurant is very cold in the winter or the heat was broken or something. It was very uncomfortable.

A causal spot with great food. Comfortable location both from the L and the J/M/Z. Gets VERY busy (and noisy) on the weekends so do make a reservation and prepare to talk loudly. The appetizers were better than the entrees, but both were great. The staff was very nice and accommodating to people in the party who had food allergies. Overall great time!

Made a reservation for two well in advance. When we arrived on a cold night, the Maitre D' didn't ask if we had a reservation. Instead, we were told that the restaurant was fully booked and the only table available was right by the door, despite the fact that the dining room was nearly empty. We asked for another table, further into the dining room, but were denied. After getting them to understand that we were one of the parties that had booked in advance, we were still forced to sit at the cold table. Found it hard to believe that there were no other 2-tops available. This left a sour note to what would have otherwise been an outstanding dinner.

No attention from hostess upon arrival. Multiple waiters. Forgotten orders. Food served at different times. Wait for food almost one full hour (restaurant not very busy).

Disappointed.

Great menu selection with options for vegetarians. Super nice owners and staff. Friendly environment with good music and some outdoor seating in summer. Burger, steak salad, big salad and all starters are some of my favorites. And the pa pa dessert!

Though there arent alot of reviews for this restaraunt, thats because its not in the trendiest area of williamsburg and is 'on the other side' of the BQE, but the ffod was wonderful, waiter very very good, and service and atmosphere just right. Highly recommend and still relatively easy to get a reservation, although that might change.

I just can't get enough of Lighthouse. The food is amazing. The service is warm and inviting. The cocktails are wonderful. I could go there any time, in any state of mind, and leave relaxed and satiated.

We went for a birthday party and the long wooden bench tables are perfect for a large group. The sound quality in the restaurant is great so you can hear everyone well. The food...it's amazing! We ordered a variety of things from chickpeas with beets, blue cheese infused brussel sprouts, oysters to burgers. Cocktails are well made. I had a Dark & Stormy, made with their homemade ginger syrup!!! Order the Pa Pie to complete your meal :)

I can't wait to get back here. Thanks for a great dinner Lighthouse staff!
