I think we got stuck in a rut -- three crab salads and Holly's Shrimp and Tomato Salad. Not a bad rut to be in!! The variation this time was an appetizer of the blue cheese chips which were terrific! As usual, everything was great: Drinks; food; service; atmosphere. How lucky to have such a great place just around the corner. Thanks for a great experience!

Went with my son and my husband for lunch. Great service and delicious crab cake salad, which is my favorite menu item. Hubby raves about his cheeseburger and awesome fries.

The food wasn’t up to par this visit. It usually is better.
My husband had a steak and it wasn’t very tender.
We will go back though.
This may have been an off night.

We always have the BEST service from Jerome! He is very welcoming and ensures our food and drinks are above standard and the way we want them. We bring out of town guests here every time someone new visits and our friends now REQUEST that we come back to BC when they revisit.

The food was excellent. The only complaint we had was that the waitress seemed to have an attitude. One of the guest asked if they still had shrimp taco's. She immediately said they weren't on the menu anymore. She then said she could order the fish taco's with shrimp. Another guest asked if he could have bleu cheese dressing on his steak salad and she said they didn't have bleu cheese dressing, but the order of tomatoes were covered in bleu cheese. I think a little bit of creativity could have been used here. We have dined here quite often and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. This little complaint will not defer us from coming again.

ALWAYS WONDERFUL! Went right after a screening at the SS Performing Arts Ctr for the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. Enjoyed a delicious dinner at the bar while talking about the film "Abe" - Rob and team take such good care of all guests!

It was great as usual, but the server shouldn't be shaking hands with patrons when they introduce themselves, it's cold and flu season, so not good for the patrons or the server. May be a nice personal touch but not good timing.

Loved this place. I was happy the artichokes were there and they were delicious, but the server told us that the special was 2 lobster tails. Instead I received a lobster tail cut in half. The table next to us were told the same thing. When i told the manager he scoffed and said I'll bring you another if your still hungry. Also, it was over cooked and over seasoned. The artichokes were delicious and the wine prices are great. Valentine's day wasn't ruined, but i was disappointed by the managements response. The service was pretty good though. Just bad marketing i guess.

We keep writing reviews of Brooklyn Cafe...because we keep going back. We are among the first patrons of the restaurant waaay back when they first opened and it is the same wonderful food and service even though the ownership has changed.

It's always jammed and the bar is usually full with regulars. It's a neighborhood go-to. It's close. the food is always great. The service is, too! Thanks!!!

Love the grilled artichokes and the crab cakes. The fish special is always great. I've actually never ordered anything there that I didn't just love. Friendly staff, neighborhood hangout feel, but with much better food and wine selections.

Brooklyn Cafe always provides a wonderful dining experience. The food is great and modestly priced as are the wines. The service is always top notch. It is a great neighborhood restaurant and it is great day in and day out. We love it.

We had reservations but was seated 15 minutes late. The hostess never acknowledged us or said be right with you, so that was a bit rude. It was very busy and seemed overcrowded as people were constantly in way of staff. Once seated server was good and food excellent!!

The restaurant serves delicious food, but is always very, very noisy inside. We normally eat on the outside patio where the noise level is more moderate, but the heat and lights were not working out there last night. The noise does detract from a peaceful dining experience.
