The biggest challenge at Brooklyn Cafe is deciding which of the incredible dishes you will get. Last night was the gazpacho and the grilled halibut special. There is never a bad choice, but I did miss Jack’s Creole, (only one of the best dishes ever served in the ATL).

We had a lovely dinner at Brooklyn Cafe last night. I had the crab cake salad and my husband the short ribs. Both we delicious as usual. To top it off we also enjoyed the flan and bread pudding for dessert. Yum!

Flavorful food and a broad selection, great drinks, nice wine selection, noise level increases with the number of diners. Would certainly recommend Brooklyn Cafe - on nights when there are plays - better make reservations...

I ordered the smoked trout starter. It was served with saltines , which diminished its appeal. I expected something better that saltines. Then for my entree I ordered the crab cakes with green beans. The crab cakes were very good , but the green bean side was horrible. The beans looked as if they’d been sitting for awhile, were tough and very unappealing. Besides the had very little taste. I expected a much better meal. I will not go back there again and I will not recommend this place to anyone.

Food is always consistent. One item that should be addressed by cooks is when serving a Caesar salad do not serve it on a hot plate that just came out of a dishwasher. The Caesar salad is always very good, but this time the hotel plate ruined it.Prices have risen like all restaurants, but Brooklyn Cafe is still;ll a good bet.

My husband and I love bread pudding but hard to find at most restaurants in Atlanta. Our meal was amazing and the bread pudding did not disappoint. Halibut, fried oysters and crab cakes with a nice Pinot Noir…yum. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly and has worked their for 17 years. Also good ambience and happy hour for a Friday at 6.

Once again the Awesome Fish sandwich was awesome. My wife and I split the sandwich and the Fig and Walnut salad. That salad is always tasty. We started with the smoked trout appetizer, which is excellent.

My tomatoes weren’t as fresh as they usually are- more white than red. Server was a bit pushy. Always tried to change our idea about what we were ordering. Never had that experience before, as we are regulars. Miss the chocolate cake!

Service was just OK—I ordered a glass of wine well before our meal arrived and had to ask for the wine twice, upon receiving my meal. Not a huge deal-just a little annoying. Trout was amazing, as always!

It was very busy last night.
I was celebrating my 70th birthday and notated it on my reservation. No one said anything or offered anything to celebrate it.
Every other restaurant I have been to in the past, on my birthday, has at least wished me a happy birthday. Most send over a birthday dessert.
Oh well, I was disappointed but not that big of a deal.

Had a delicious meal with friends, and everyone was very pleased with their order. Portions were very generous, including the yummy desserts. I'd recommend the crab cake salad, the chocolate cake and the key lime pie.

The food was delicious as always, and our server was excellent. However, i cannot say anything positive about the front staff. I had made a reservation many weeks ago after buying tickets to a play at City Springs Theater. I received a confirmation that said we had to free the table by 7:45. On entering the theater, I was told that the play lasted longer than expected. I called to alert Brooklyn Cafe that we would be delayed for15 minutes, 5:00. The young woman who answered was very annoyed and curt. She said we had to be gone by 6:30. When did that time change? Although we were compliant with that time, we felt undervalued. Our $200-300 spent should be as important as anyone else’s. Very, very poor customer service.
