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.

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!

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!!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!)

The es cargo is absolutely fantastic and a special treat for us. Service is consistent without being in your face. It's got a classic feel - a small French bistro with lots of gems on the menu.

Not until after we dined at Mominette did friends tell us "They've really gone downhill in the last two years" and "they have rats". Now we see why. FOOD We ordered mussels, the pork special, a side of brussel sprouts and the Apple Tart Tartan. The Pork special was absolutely delicious, tender perfection. The mussels were advertised "w/ roasted tomatoes". The entire pot had probably a 1/4 of a tomato in it. They were flavorless and soaked in butter. French fries were obviously good. And the crust on the Tart Tartan was undercooked, apples were good however. SERVICE Server forgot our brussel sprouts, which we had to remind him of. When dinner ended he seemed to push dessert on us to say "I've got you covered for messing up before". However he forgot to tell us the dessert special. My girlfriend who is a baker spotted the Apple Tart Tartan at a neighbor table and had to ask him about it, which he then informed us of. When the bill arrived, nothing was compensated or excused. Meaning he clearly didn't tell management of the mess up. OVERALL Over priced, flavorless food, unapologetic wait staff, cool vibe. Not worth the hype.
