Loosie's Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Delicious fried chicken and beignets to die for! Loosie's Kitchen is a fun place for comfort food with a twist. The service was a little slow, but it was a Saturday night, otherwise we really enjoyed our meal here. The mac and cheese and ricotta appetizer were also outstanding.
Each server/bartender we had, had to apologize for the wait or the poor service.
Drinks tool 15 minutes once ordered, after waiting 15 to order.
We ordered two appetizers and a burger to split--1 app came approx. 30 minutes after ordering and was good. We requested bread with the second appetizer & were then told "the chef insists on toasting all bread, so this may take awhile." We ended up eating the appetizer without the bread as it did take too long. Our "medium rare" burger came out completely raw, and inedible. We sent it back, after being asked if we were going to eat it or not... and then our bread came out.
We were not offered a replacement meal or a drink on the house.
Food was amazing and the ambience of the place was so beautiful. The only reason I did not give this place 5 stars is because the customer service was lacking. I ordered the johnny cakes for my boyfriend and I and after 5 minutes our waiter told us they only had 1 left (which I thought was really odd). So I got the johnny cakes and my bf got waffles and chicken instead. We also ordered orange juice. It took a really long time for our food to come and it wasnt all that crowded. The food was amazing but the girl never brought us our orange juice. I didn't make a big fuss about it. when the bill came I noticed they overcharged us about $30. Our bill shouldve been around $50 bucks and they trued to charge us 86. They forgot to take the orange juice off our order and added an extra brunch entree to our order. It really messed up an otherwise pleasant experience. When I brought it to their attention they were just like oh. Let me fix it. Not even a sorry. Great food. Great ambience. Need better waiters.
Absolutely horrible. I can't believe we didn't walk out as soon as we arrived. Terrible atmosphere. Atrocious service. The food was nothing special. It was so loud, we had to shout to have a conversation. Oh, and there were people having sex in the bathroom. Classy joint!
This is my second time at loosies kitchen. The first time it was empty so the waiters were very attentive and friendly. This time was a little less satisfactory. Although we were on time for our reservations we had to wait a few min to be seated (there were available seats so they weren't waiting for anyone to leave) and once seated we weren't offered drinks/water for at least 15-20 min. I overheard that they were understaff but the waiter they had attending the tables in our area seemed rushed despite it not being overly crowded. It was impossible to track him down to start our order.
We were offered a drink earlier by the bartender as we were waiting for our seats. When we asked the waiter for the same drink he said they don't have that kind of drink-which was false. So my bf went back to the bar and ordered the same drink and was able to get it. Not sure why the waiter was so quick to say they didn't have it without checking. They also ran out of orange juice....??? So random for a BRUNCH place to run out of orange juice (which could be bought nearby at a grocery store) Their chicken biscuit is amazing but the French toast a bit dry. My first experience was amazing however this one left a bad taste in my mouth. The ambiance and setting are beautifully decorated but that shouldn't excuse less than good service and food.
I came here all the way from the Bronx for a low-key and intimate brunch with family and friends. At first we were seated in the back but because the owner knew how much I wanted to sit in the front with all the beautiful scenery, not only did she treat us with complimentary champagne, but she made sure my party and I were able to sit where I wanted for our main course. The staff was super friendly and accommodating and definitely made the trip to Brooklyn for this gem worthwhile. Fried chicken and waffles were amazing, never had a waffle that melted in my mouth the way that Loosie's did!
Yes, the ambiance is amazing. I'd sit in here, heck live here, all day if I could. BUT...
When we arrived for our reservation, on time, the waitress notified us that the kitchen was about to close so we had to hurry and place our orders right away. They shouldn't take reservations for the same time the kitchen closes. It wasn't a great start and it kept getting worse. They were out of every single non-alcoholic beverage (they have any of the delicious sounding juices we wanted to try, which is part of why we picked the spot in the first place). They were also out of one of the main dishes that two of our party was planning to order.
We rushed to order food. They then forgot one of our drinks for 30 minutes. Then a waiter gave us the food that was meant for the table next to us. Luckily we noticed before we bit into it, but it was an awkward moment for the couple next to us too.
It felt like everything kept going wrong.
To top it off, everything was really over priced, including a very small, maybe two sip, $8 grapefruit juice which we ordered because they were out of literally every drink we came there for. They included 20% gratuity for a party of 5 (what?) despite everything going wrong, and we fully unapologetic about the kitchen closing 5 minutes after seating us. I was SO very underwhelmed and still we each managed to spend about $45...
Came to loosies for my birthday. They were able to accommodate a party of 7 but it was a squeeze. Service took a bit long, food portions were small. The whole look of the place is what really brought me there. I ordered French toast and expecting at least two pieces of bread it was just one piece for $10
Ran out of something on the menu, the only healthy option. Understandable. However, my friend asked for a side salad that they charged $9 for. Fine, but there was only 3 leaves of lettuce in the bowl and nothing else. Not even tomatoes or onions or anything!
Visiting from MTL for a weekend, Loosie Rouge ended up being our favorite restaurant in Brooklyn ! The place is incredibly cute and hip, waitors were kind, smiling and attentive, music and vibe were good, natural wine choices were perfect, food was simple, tasty and made with love... i can't wait to go back !
This place is so cute! It's an instagrammer's dream! The food is great, this last time we went the service was super bad, but we were tucked away in a back nook, and it seemed like they forgot about us. The time I went before we sat out in the main dining area and the service was better.
Took 25 minutes before we ordered a drink. Another 25 to order our food. The "half cauliflower" appetizer was 6 florets. The pasta came out cold for our mains, which we received two hours after being seated. Our sides arrived after we finished our measly entrees. The bill was 150 and the food was worth maybe 30. Terrible, would not recommend.
food was good, but very slow, and waitress didn't tell us there were essential ingredients missing from our dishes, 3 out of 4 dishes were missing stuff, only after we got our food did she say btw we don't have anymore biscuits, or we don't have anymore caramelized pears. Had we known ahead of time, we could've ordered something else. maybe if we had gotten the complete meal, I would've given this a 5 star.
My ONLY complaint is that they hire a busser. The servers were so disorganized and not communicating with one another.. we waited almost 15mins for a glass of wine and a cocktail. But the food is really really good and the drinks were delicious! Ambience is so relaxing, kind of feel like you are in a beach town grabbing a bite.
We came here for a small family get together with cousins. They were visiting from out of town and very impressed by the interior and the cool back room we ate it. Very unsuspecting from the outside. We had the cajun fries which were only so-so, but the grilled octopus was a perfect appetizer for the table. I had the lobster bisque fettuccine which I would highly recommend and we finished off the meal with the nutella beignets (A MUST). Overall, very good and would go back.
