What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

21 Greenpoint is a great neighborhood spot that’s not just a consolation prize if you can’t get into Paulie Gee’s across the street.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

One of our favorite restaurants in Greenpoint. The restaurant has a warm vibe, and the menu is always a mix of interesting dishes with well-done classics. We ate venison tartare, a smoked trout salad, and pepperoni pizza. Cocktails are also great.

The only downside (if I had to write something) was that (1) the food came out too quickly - would’ve preferred the courses more spaced out to have a more leisurely meal and (2) that it was a bit too warm in the restaurant; it was an unseasonably warm day and perhaps they didn’t put on the AC or have fans going.

We were in town from Maine and chose 21 Greenpoint for a special family dinner. My son and his wife live in the neighborhood, and had not been there before. It was wonderful! Lots of terrific attention from Arion, who made us feel very special. We also met the owner, Homer Murray on the way out. He introduced himself and chatted a bit. A lovely way to treat your guests! We will go back!

You have probably heard of 21 Greenpoint because it's owned by Homer Murray, Bill Murray's son. What you should know about 21 Greenpoint is that the food and drink is done extremely well. Utilizing local and seasonal ingredients, 21 Greenpoint sets the bar high. This visit my girlfriend and I split the Mickey's Salad and the Chicken Roulade. The Mickey's Salad (mixed greens, radish, crouton, feta and shallot vinaigrette) was really good. Such a simple salad but full of great flavors. The Chicken Roulade (merguez, bacon, hummus, root vegetables, herbed yogurt, and saffron) was what we both went crazy over. Crispy bacon wrapped around chicken with great fresh vegetables and hummus? You won't be disappointed. They also have craft cocktails which are very good too. Be sure to check them out.

We had a good time on our girl's night. This was our second annual Fall girls outing at 21 Greenpoint. We wanted to make it a tradition since the ambiance is so nice, we're mostly all in the neighborhood and my friends are obsessed with Bill Murray.

I will say that last year and this year's food fell a little short for me personally.

Last year we got a bunch of dishes to share, albeit the portions are pretty small. We had ordered a pasta dish last year that was like an alfredo but with a ton of whole peppercorns mixed into it. It was way too overpowering, where probably one crushed peppercorn would have been enough. We ended up picking out all the little peppercorns out of both orders and eating the dishes that way.

This year, I ordered the Mussels in Tomato sauce. The mussels were fresh and the dish was plentiful but the flavor was lacking. There needed some more herbs to lift the dish. It was a very one note tomato sauce.

My friends love it here, mostly due to the possibility of seeing Bill Murray, but the food and drinks are very meh in comparison to the millions of great restaurants in NYC.

The service here, however, is always impeccable. Really nice wait staff and very friendly.

This is by far one of my favorite restaurants in all of NYC. The food is amazing, the space is inviting, the music is perfect. Most of all, the bartenders and wait-staff create a warm, welcoming vibe. No Pretense...Totally authentic. We closed the place; really didn't want to leave. Reminds you what a restaurant experience can be. Be back soon.

A balanced mix of creativity, good ingredients and flavors: local, without attitude and Williamsburg B.S. (go Greenpoint!).

Shoutout to Garrett! And, possibly the head chef working while I was there who personally checked to see if the food was up to snuff. More than up to snuff. Awesome spot - will definitely be visiting again!

The eggplant appetizer was served on sliced bread from the grocery store (practically wonder bread). The pizza managed to be burnt but not crispy. the pot of mussels were ok but overpowered by the sauce. The service was good, so overall an OK experience. We will not be returning.

The ambience and food were good, however our group of 5 received 3 meals at one time and the other two about 10 minutes later. Also the brunch pizza on the menu is huge, big enough for two, and our waitress failed to mention that. There ended up being a lot of food waste. Other than that it was great.

The food was good. Aside from a really excellent pasta dish, I wouldn't find it very memorable. But since the bill wasn't so much, I'm forgiving. The ingredients were fresh and seasoned well. The only real miss was a soup minestrone, which was a weak broth with some carrots--sort of odd but I understand on Sundays, when I went, they try to use product that's at hand. Service was friendly and unobtrusive, and the environment is comfortable.

Such a (semi) hidden gem on the Greenpoint waterfront. I've been a few times with friends and dates and the vibe is always perfect. Fun, relaxed, upscale, Brooklyn. Never pretentious (as some Williamsburg spots can be) and always on top of service and food.
The design is also very stylish without trying too hard & interesting.
