The service was incredible. Our waiter gave us updates when our food was taking some extra time.

Just happened to be in Brooklyn waiting for my kids to enjoy a concert at Brooklyn Steel. This came up on Open Table because the one I found by googling 'great cafes in Brooklyn' had no spots. Thanks Open Table! This was perfect.

We had a great New Years Eve dinner here. Their pre fixed 5 course dinner menu was overall very good. We had to sit outside in an enclosed glass patio which thankfully was heated. Service was excellent. Cute, quaint little restaurant in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn.

Went with out of town relatives to show them Brooklyn and it got raves. Escargot was the winner of the appetizers and steak frites, lamb, duck, and mussels were all favorites (but my lamb was the winner.) Dessert was amazing--the gelato/sorbets were deeply flavored and intense. Definitely a winner!

Informal and friendly spot. Relaxed atmosphere, helpful servers with French accent and unbeatable $1 oysters during happy hour.
The snails were probably the best I have ever had.
Would like to come back again for more!

Was genuinely surprised by how good the food was. The portions were generous so much so that we were able to bring home a doggie bag. Well priced, even the specials. Would definitely recommend giving it a try. You won't be disappointed.

Everything was just lovely! The food was incredible. I had the salmon with potato gratin and escargot, and my boyfriend loved his dish as well (the duck breast). Drinks were great too, and the service was perfect! This will be our new spot for regular date nights!!

Friendly and attentive staff. Delicious oysters and desert. We loved the vegetable lasagna, but my husband was a little disappointed with the roast duck and found the sauce to be a bit too greasy. Probably picked wrong menu item because the rest was yummy. It was lively place but not noisy - a rare combination.

Excellent service. Every server that came by was extremely friendly and attentive. We sat outside and their patio is super cute and cozy. Would be a great date night spot. Food was also great- 3 of us shared the meat and cheese board as an appetizer, a burger, gnocchi, and mushroom pesto pasta. All were fantastic!

Just found the name on Open Table and gave it a try. Quiet when we first arrived and got much busier throughout. Oysters were great. Tuna was excellent.
Bathrooms could have been a little nicer. Wi definitely go back.

Warm and charming oasis on edgy Knickerbocker St. in Bushwick. We were seated in the "garden" in the back in the middle of February - and it was great! It's enclosed (obviously) and the floor is gravel. The main area is very lively, charming, and very different in feel, but both dining areas are wonderful. Food is good and a god value, but the kitchen is not terribly efficient. Took us over an hour to get the food and one of the dishes came a full 10 minutes after everyone else was served. Still, we were enjoying the ambience and each other's company so all good!

Came here for Valentine's Day, have been before. Excellent food, kitchen was a little slow but they more than made up for it by bringing a couple of comped glasses of champagne. Love their steak frites, burger is also great (but it's pretty good French food, so maybe branch out a little!)
