Nice food, very popular. Short but good list of wines. Rushed by waiter, entrees pushes onto table well before starters finished. Felt pressure constantly to turn the table.

We love Brooklyn Cafe and dine there frequently. However, this past Friday night the waitress got two items wrong; my husbands dinner was served and it took a long time to get my dinner. We’ve never had this problem before and we’re disappointed in the service. Food is delicious but that made it a less than pleasant evening.

Food is generally excellent, however, on this occasion we were not impressed with the Baby back ribs nor the sauce on the halibut.

Crab cakes at BC... always delicious! We are so fortunate to have such a great restaurant in Sandy Springs.

Our family always likes to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries here. The seasonal menu has something for everyone (I’m partial to the crab cakes), and the service is always friendly and accommodating. Parking is a challenge if you’re going for lunch, but there is plenty of parking in the parking garage just across the street.

it was a busy night, but our server never checked back to see if more drinks were wanted. Also didn't check in with us after food was served to see if everything was oK. We were told about the white chocolate bread pudding by our server only to have her come back and say you were out.
My meat was too rare, but the kitchen did get it back promptly.

High standards without outrageous prices! Always delicious and service impeccable! Crab cakes are our favorite and the lobster bisque is perfection.
One perhaps helpful comment tho from our visit last week ...sitting on the enclosed deck area on a cold dreary day is not for me, especially when seated at the first table next to the frequently opened door. Instead, I suggest the hostess offer the enclosed heated outdoor area and especially this particular table, easily seen from the hostess stand, as a mere suggestion giving time for thought for the patrons. I would definitely choose waiting for what I consider a much more desirable indoor table 100% of the time!

The service was amazing as it usually is. It was very, very loud and chaotic though. The Friday evening hostess is always acerbic and everyone in my family,as well as all of my guests, have had frequent unpleasant interactions with her. We always wonder how she is able to keep her job, as anywhere else she would not be able to keep a job in customer service. She is the face of the restaurant at the front door and is just plain curt, rude, dismissive, and without any sense of decorum. Everyone has bad days from time to time and I always have compassion for that but this is the last time we will be in Brooklyn Café based on her treatment of my mother. We are done with this treatment of customers and management does not seem to care that she is the single handedly most complained about member of their team. We love the servers that we know, they are they are incredible people who really keep Brooklyn Café running and in the game in what has become a more competitive field and the growing pool of increasingly better restaurants in Sandy Springs. Many dishes simply do not warrant the price as was the case with the special halibut on Friday night $36 for what tasted like cafeteria food sides- the green beans and the mashed potatoes had no taste- absolutely bland bland bland and the piece of halibut was tiny. Meanwhile across the street at The Select, the food quality and prices are much more in line with each other with a more beautiful atmosphere in which you can actually hear and speak to your party, the hostesses are lovely, and the service is excellent. I have no doubt that Brooklyn Cafe will continue to pack in its patrons and serve good-ish food at higher prices with sweetest servers and with the most unpleasant weekend hostess at the front stand as the face of the restaurant where most patrons will just suck it up and deal or are ok with blandish fare and rude behavior. For us, there are too many better options in the area to spend our money on an evening out.

Dinner at Brooklyn Cafe was great! We shared the homemade chips, and had pear salads. I had lamb chops and DH had those fabulous crab cakes. We enjoyed a bottle of Jordan Cabernet at a great price. Food, wine, and service were outstanding.

Had the big table for hubby’s birthday celebration. Slow but steady service as we had late arrivals and place very busy. Enjoyed the fall menu. Jay brought out the cake all lit up and all joined in singing. Great place to celebrate.
