Great food. The Lamb Parpadelle the standout. Wine was good, although would have been nice to see more local choices. Service was friendly and attentive. Overall a great experience. Would return and definitely recommend.

While visiting my daughter in Brooklyn we tried many places. This is in a great neighborhood right by the river. The food here is delicious! We went for brunch and loved everything. We shared the danish pancake for dessert and it was delicious. Highly recommend.

Had a gorgeous light dinner here on a saturday evening. Seated promptly. Drinks were good, had the lamb papardelle and the burrata starter. Both were amazing. We were on our way to a show at the Warsaw so we didn't get everything we wanted, but plan to come back with friends for a full dinner. We even saw Kate McKinnon come in to have dinner with friends. Great spot!

The restaurant was incredibly hot to the point that we were stifling and therefore extremely uncomfortable. Food was ok but overpriced.

I had been to 21 Greenpoint multiple times and always had a great time. However last weekend I took a few friends there and had a really poor experience. Our waitress wasnt very helpful when we had questions about the menu, our drinks came out one at a time, and we were sat right under the AC unit which was dripping on us the whole time. Finally, when we got our check and still halfway through a round of drinks, the hostess came over and said I need this table right away and asked us to wrap up. Really left a sour taste in our mouth.

I was very very disappointed. We live next-door and have been looking forward to eating here for a while. Had friends in town and booked a table last week. The waitress was overwhelmed and impatient. They were understaffed. The kitchen exhaust was blowing into the restaurant so By the end of the meal we all stank. Some people had to leave the restaurant to get fresher every now and then. The tip of it all is when I sent an email to the restaurant afterwards asking them to call me back so I can give them constructive feedback, they never called back. I guess utter nonchalance. I do not recommend this place.

It was very very loud in the back room. We were six and given a large table which made it even harder to speak to one another. The food was not amazing at all. I only ordered a salad which was disappointing and fries which were ok. Then dessert was awful. More than anything the noise level was painful and made the occasion less than pleasant.

Super sweet waitress and host, pizza is one of the best I ever had (and I'm from NYC). Awesome salmon and roasted purple carrots, and great pale ale and wine by the glass selection!

I've been to 21 Greenpoint 5x. The food is good, but the quality of service is exceptional, and simply nice. No attitude. Great vibe. Chill.

Loved this place! Went for Mother's Day brunch on a dreary rainy day, and this place brought some light to the day. The decor was so pretty, and the service & food excellent. Looking forward to coming back for dinner.

Had a delightful brunch with family at 21 Greenpoint this past Saturday. We were fortunate to get a table by the window on a lovely Spring day, so got to people watch and enjoy the warm Spring weather. The menu was a pleasant change from the usual fare. Two of us ordered the sweet potato schnitzel with egg, which was absolutely one of the best breakfasts we both had ever had. The 21 Breakfast was also quite good, and the egg and ham sandwich was excellent as well, with large portions for hearty appetites. Cocktail choices were fun including the Hard Start which is a jolt to the system with coffee and liquor. The chocolate cake was a bit too rich, but good for sharing with a scoop of ice cream to cut the richness of the cake. Service was friendly and welcoming, and no one rushed us. Highly recommend 21 Greenpoint for brunch, and we intend going back to try their dinner menu as well.

I don’t know what happened... I read the reviews and it seems great. Maybe it was an off night on a Sunday evening. The salad was ok. The broccoli was very bland and the peppers with it tasted like it nothing special. The fish was also nothing notable. Unfortunately it felt so off, we didn’t want to eat it! So I don’t know like I said maybe we ordered the wrong things.

The food was great. It was delicious and fresh. However, when we arrived our table was not ready for another 30 minutes. The waiters often forgot our drink orders and we had to reorder them several times. I wish the staff was more attentive and caring.

The food was great but service was very very slow. It took 2 hours for a party of 4 to be served appetizers, the main course and dessert. After we paid the bill they asked us to leave because they had other reservations waiting. Unbelievable!!! Slow service and then you kick us out.

I love 21GP and live locally, so that makes it even better. I do have to say that I prefer dinner to brunch, although the food is great either way. Their cocktails are lovely and my favorite thing on the menu is their charcuterie & cheese board. Great place for a date night or catching up with friends.

My partner and I booked a table at 21 Greenpoint for NYE only to be let down by the food and the cocktails. Usually we would let certain things slide if the food was worth it, but there was nothing to write home about that will bring us back.

Starters: For $32 we ordered the meat and cheese platter to start our evening. It lacked variety of options, quality of the cuts and the quantity was not worth the money we paid for. No prosciutto, no olives, no crackers. 2 unidentifiable spreads, pepperoni and salami slices surrounding a mountain of burnt edged bread.

Appetizers: I ordered the seared scallops with mushrooms and broad beans. Although mine tasted okay, it certainly was cold by the time it reached my table. My partner ordered the wild boar lettuce cups. I was able to sample the dish as well and we were unimpressed with the lack of flavor in the meat. The stew-like filling dampened the crispness of the lettuce cups which looked more like boats, floating in a pool of meat broth.

Mains: The pork chops were salty, and did not come with the fingerling potatoes that was stated in the menu. The pasta dish was even worse. In my entire dining experience I have never sent a dish back but considering our bad run with the restaurant that evening, we needed to say something. Our waitress was kind enough to send the dish back and have them re-make the dish dish that was too salty and cold. We were told that the dish is quite salty due to the cheese that is used to make the dish, however it would be nice to have our feedback taken into consideration when the dish was remade. When the second version came out, we tasted the exact same dish, only it was lukewarm instead of cold.

Service
Although the service wasn’t as prompt as we would have liked, we do understand that it was for NYE dinner service. The couple dining next to us ordered the pork chop dish and did not take long to be served to them. This makes us question the quality of the service provided for us.

Wonderful brunch with friends. I got the breakfast pizza which was amazing, and we were all very happy with our food and beverages. Service was friendly, and we appreciated they were very accommodating with different allergies and table request. We will be back soon.
