We had an absolutely lovely Valentine's day here, the tables were a little close together but honestly, it was wonderful. Also, this was the first time in my life someone offered me mocktails at a restaurant when I declined to order booze. SO considerate

Great little brunch spot near a waterfront park. Come early or reserve to be sure to get a table.

Horrible experience here on NYE. There was a limited menu where they ran out of food, minimized the portions (drinks were 99% ice and pork belly was three 1” pieces of mostly bone), forgot orders, etc. I love 21 GP normally, but I will never return after choosing to celebrate my holiday here with friends and having such a terrible and disrespectful experience.

Greenpoint 21 is one of our go to restaurants on our monthly visits to Brooklyn. Every thing works exceedingly well. Great apps-roasted squash this time, super entrees-the lamb ragout on papradelle was awesome and we never thought the chicken parm would be as good as it looked. Staff is gracious and fun and the pricing provides really good value. We enjoy the bar dining area when we await some vitality and really love the back rooms when we want a quiet night to catch up with each other. Greenpoint in general has become a center for gracious dining and Greenpoint 21 is on the leading edge.

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!

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.

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.
