Food and atmosphere are good (highly recommend having a reservation as other people had to wait) but the service is very slow and not overly friendly.

Painfully slow service at 9:30 am on Sunday with few customers. Restaurants desperately needs kitchen and server help. However, food was good and prices are very reasonable.

I love that I could get a reservation for a Sunday brunch! Some places just won't do that. The food was tasty and arrived quickly, and they were good about letting our party chat for a while after the meal.

Pure Bistro was a great place to have a late lunch/early dinner. The service was great. We were acknowledged right away, and seated by the window. The appetizer was absolutely delicious. Our main meal was very good, only I wasn't crazy about the spinach. I felt it was lacking in flavor. Aside from that, I would highly recommend this restaurant. It was a good meal and ambiance.

Very fresh, wonderful food.. and extremely reasonably priced. Close to Barclays Center. Definitely need a reservation as the restaurant is small.. And they only take Am Ex or cash.
I would return here in a minute and recommend it to anyone!! Great place!!

We were accommodated a bit earlier than our reservation which was helpful since we were going to concert at Barclays. The service was slow. It took almost 40 minutes to get our food. The food was tasty and the ambiance was nice. We will definitely be back.

I had high hopes for this restaurant. The steak was VERY boring.. at least serve it with some of the cooking juices or a drizzle of whatever it was marinating in reduced down into a reduction. My husbands chicken was also very bland. The hummus was delicious despite a few pieces of burnt pita. They give a carafe of water though for the table. Thats the only reason I gave an extra star.

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience at this restaurant. The service was poor and the meals took almost one hour to arrive (burgers so nothing complicated). When the food did arrive it was cold. There was an excessive wait to order an extra serving of fries (after our already long wait I would have thought there could have been a compromise on this). When I questioned the server on the poor food he commented they were busier than they had expected and also there was a new chef. I would not recommend this restaurant

We went to Pure Bistro before going to a show at the Barclay's Center. One of us had the Simple Salmon which was served with brown rice and broccoli. It was delicious and cooked just right. Also ordered was a Portobello Burger which came just as ordered. It too was extremely good. Of disappointment was the fact that at 5:30 on a Saturday evening they had "run out" of French Fries to be ordered. That was really hard to believe. A baked potato was ordered instead which was very good but one usually would like French Fries with a burger. Then Menu does have some nice appetizers though we did not have one. There are also Sandwiches and other fish Entrees. What made the evening even more enjoyable was when we got the bill for our dinner. We had each had two glasses of wine and not known that we were there for Happy Hour! All in all it was an excellent dinner and very enjoyable. We will return if we are that way again.

Food taste & quality excellent. However, even for a casual spot for informal dinner or snack- it had the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE CHAIRS that I have ever experienced. Service was ok, although my baked potato was served without butter (I had to request it) and when I was offered ketchup for my hamburger, it turned out to be a watery hot sauce (definitely NOT ketchup). That being said, the place does have potential - just get some decent chairs & pay attention to detail when serving.

Would have been a better experience but the other customers ruined it. There was a group of about 7 people who came in after my sister and I. Once they say they were loud and cursing the whole time. Other than that the food was very good and I would go back again.

Juices looked good. Organic & healthy selections were fair without being too "health nut". Food was fair, not exceptional. Good place for an easy meet-up or casual brunch. Could get fairly loud if crowded. Their juicer, on top of conversation din, makes it a spot you stop in, eat & go. But overall, it works. Staff were nice, not too attentive with the water or check-ins but easy to flag down & always nice about it.

My son and I had driven around last Sunday afternoon both starving and unfamiliar with the section of Brooklyn we were in but, our first two tries to find a place to eat (at around 2 PM) were not happening as one had a line winding around the corner and the other had a 45 minute wait time. In desperation I pulled up my Open Table App and bingo! Pure showed up 4 minutes away with a table available at 2:30. The food was excellent and I have already recommended this a good place to eat.

My friend and I went here with our two teenage sons on New Year's Eve for early dinner. Everything was average. EXCEPT the guacamole. It was so fresh! If I lived in the neighborhood I would definitely stop by at least 3x a week for the guacamole and chips to go. :-) The service was nice and friendly. I think this is a good go-to restaurant for locals as it is very small.

When we arrived, the restaurant was almost empty and there was only one waiter who also was answering the phone for take out orders. Our food was slow and the meal lasted almost 1.5 hours at was is essentially a diner-type place. The food was mediocre to poor. Plus, when we arrived they did not have our Open Table reservation so that we didn't get our points.
