Ambiance was nice. Great decor. That’s it. When they came to serve the food they served across the table instead beside you. Kinda weird. I got the Oscar 75.00ish. A small quarter of a tomato, 7 oz filet with crabmeat with bearnaise sauce and asparagus. Nothing was hot. Luke warm at best. My husband put butter on his steak and it did not melt. There were shells in my lobster and I am not so sure there was bearnaise sauce. Very disappointing and we will not be back. My husband got a steak and mashed potatoes. He had a gin and tonic and I had an old fashion. Including tip we spent 200.00. It’s not a Jeff Ruby’s or a Morton’s food wise. Definitely not worth that kind of money.

Brought my wife here for her birthday. The food was absolutely delicious! The service was excellent. They have a sphere was great but the lighting could’ve been a notch brighter. Pricey but not someplace I would eat more than once a year.

Ribeye was great. It's a little pricey at $47. The pork chop was slightly tough. The cocktails were great though and the overall experience left us wanting to return and try some different dishes.

The steak was not impressive, an okay cut of meat but no flavor. For the price I would expect to be able to eat it with out needing steak sauce but it was very bland. My wife ordered a steak well done and it was completely dried out.

I would happily pay for a good steak but will not return to this place. The price was way to high for the quality.

Brooklyn and the Butcher is just another overpriced restaurant wanting to cater to the "in" crowd. They charge for every little thing and it can't possibly be justified because the food falls flat. My meal was fine and I was pleased though not with the 6$ charge for a small ramekin of the topping I ordered, I thought it would come smothered onto my steak so as to be visually appealing but it was still a decent meal. My husband on the other hand, bless his poor unsatisfied soul, ordered the Au Poivre. Let's start with the broccoli which was under-cooked, room temp and devoid of seasoning. Next, the "whipped" potatoes...whoever made those potatoes should be whipped, seriously have they heard of salt? The kitchen does at least have peppercorn though they do not know how to use it. Why, why in the name of all that is holy and good would you just slap whole peppercorns onto a 53$ NY strip and deign to call it " peppercorn and brandy cream"?! Never in my life have I spit out steak so fast and been so completely repulsed and sourly disappointed. One would imagine the pepper being crushed and cooked into this "brandy cream" they speak of and hope that you get some overwhelmingly heavy and thick taste of man's food that makes your taste buds sigh in delight but I digress, if you want a steak and fancy toppings you would be better off going to Longhorn's Steakhouse or cooking it at home. Either way you won't have to look at or pay for the poorly chosen decor, if I wanted to see Brooklyn I'd go there. They did a disservice to the grandeur of the old building( especially having a speakeasy) why not a 1920's or 1930's aesthetic to go with your "hip" idea of having drinks in the basement.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise! We ate outside at the patio which was nice and private and relaxing. All good was excellent (between us we had shrimp cocktail—nice slightly spicy cocktail sauce with medium sized shrimp, lobster bisque—generous portion and so deliciously creamy, steakhouse salad—wonderful salad, dry aged ribeye Brooklyn style—looked incredible but it was my husbands entree, 12 oz ribeye—perfectly cooked, seasoned and delicious all on its own, candied Brussel sprouts—I’ve never been a fan but I could have eaten the entire bowl myself, and cheesecake with caramel sauce—perfect ending. The service was incredible—great recommendations, speedy and extremely kind. We will definitely be back!

Great food and service as always. The owners even wrote a special birthday note, very thoughtful. When we arrived it was so nice outside that we last-minute requested to sit in their newly updated outdoor patio dining area and they were so accommodating, it was a perfect night. Will definitely return soon.

We love the dinner service but brunch was pretty disappointing. Most of the food at the table was barely warm and kind of mushy. You could tell it had all been made ahead of time. Just expected a bit more high end for the price. The bananas fosters french toast seemed to be the only hit at the table. It was really good and you got a lot more of it for the price than any of the other options we had. The coffee and the drink cocktails were great, liked those a lot. And the service was perfect, waitress was wonderful. We will be back for dinner but probably not the brunch.

Everything was excellent including the staff and ambiance. Appetizer and the bread was mmmm mmmm mmmm good . Also, we lucked out and got the domestic beer special which was awesome. The only thing I would have to say is the steak was just ok. I’ve had better at Texas Roadhouse. We had a good time.
