My wife and I have been here many times. Today we split the Rueben sandwich. I started with the Lobster bisque, which is always perfect. She started with the fig salad, which it always very good. The food is always outstanding!

We always love the crabcake salad. My husband has to have the key lime pie. My favorite is the bread pudding dessert.

Brooklyn Cafe is always fantastic with one of the best menus in town, excellent service and staff and a wonderful wine menu. It is hands down our go to restaurant for everyday dining and special occasions.

Had dinner for the first time at Brooklyn Café for my wife’s birthday. Both the service and food were excellent. The dressing on the Caesar salad might be the best I’ve ever had. The short ribs my wife got also were probably the best I’ve ever tasted. I had the Creole chicken, sausage, and rice and it was excellent. They also brought a complimentary dessert for my wife’s birthday, which was a nice touch. And the prices are extremely reasonable. I wish they had a way to turn the lighting down a bit because it seemed kind of bright for a restaurant, but one that’s your only complaint, they’re doing a pretty good job. Will definitely be back.

We had the lobster tail entree. It was absolutely delicious. It was an extremely enjoyable dinner. That is why we go at least twice a month.
We only go these days if we can sit on the patio and that has been possible quite often.

We started off our evening outside the norm. The waitress for our area was slammed. The hostess jumped in and took our drink orders and took great care of us. Great team player! Emily was working with adjacent tables and we were able to have her slide in for our scheduled waitress. Emily has waited on us before and had always been super. Emily and the team picked up the ball and ran with it. They were just fabulous! Made the night a huge success and the food was really great. Planning my next visit now. Thanks

Disappointed on our last dinner. We brought a bottle of wine from home to enjoy. Server opened the wine, placed the cork on the table and proceeded to pour 2 full glasses of wine. He may not have been properly trained ...
Next at the end of the evening, he runs our credit card and the totals do not match on the table check and our credit card. Perhaps this server was not trained. This is not the norm at this restaurant. Perhaps it was not the servers' night?

We made a reservation for outdoor seating. I was called confirming that we would indeed be seated out on the patio… Only to find out that the patio had been completely enclosed in plastic. My friend and I were both high risk so had to quickly pivot and go to another restaurant that provided us with a safe outdoor environment. I would’ve appreciated being told about the enclosing of the patio and regret that we were mislead by the restaurant. We ordinarily love the food and environment of Brooklyn café and hope they will reconsider and provide a safer outdoor environment

We enjoyed our date night here on 10/31/2020. We appreciated the fact they had a table ready and waiting for us at our reservation time even though there were many other people who walked in without reservations and had to wait. Gio was our server and was very attentive to us even though he had 5 or 6 other tables going. We love coming here because of their attention to detail. Gio did not make us use our dirty silverware for our next course. He walked us through the wine selections and invited us to try something we had not tried before. We tried the Pierson Meyer Chardonnay and the Teeter Totter Cabernet. Both Napa Valley wines complimented our salmon appetizer and steaks for dinner. Everything was perfectly cooked and you could tell they take Covid-19 seriously. The tables were distanced from each other and careful attention was paid to safely serve us dinner. We will be back! We love this place!

Almost a perfect experience. They don't require masks so there was a few people wandering around the restaurant maskless. And there wasn't much social distancing at the bar. If you are ok with that, cool.

Food was outstanding. Both got the burger and trout dip. Would have liked a differernt cracker than a saltine but the dip was incredible.

Service very caring and kind.

Mediocre food and terrible service. I got the trout and it came with a side of tomatoes with feta (only side). A bit of an odd combo but whatever. The fish was so dry and crusty it tasted like it had been cooked two days earlier. Also, the service was so slow that it took 2.5 hours for a meal for 4 people. Wouldn’t recommend this place.

We may not be "regulars" at Brooklyn Cafe, but dine there on an average of at least once
a month for the last five+years. We enjoy the food, the staff is friendly and professional.
Recently, they added more seating, but that did not affect the intimate feeling. We will
continue to be steady diners.
