Had a dine in reservation for a couple weeks to be sure we could get a spot once the Restaurant reopened. You can imagine our surprise to show up with dinner guests to find the restaurant was not actually offering dine in service. We were greeted by their curbside staff who offered a weak apology and took no blame (“it was open table’s fault”). Hard to believe they would not have reached out in the prior 2 weeks to let us know the reservations would not be valid.

Can never say enough great things about Brooklyn Cafe, I with my family have been coming here for years and always ask for Keith as our server, the best but everybody there is awesome, owner is one of the nicest people you will ever know and the food speaks for itself, I always get Jack’s Creole Chicken, Sausage and Rice, my favorite but all their dishes are awesome, love the salmon app.

I had the crab cakes which were prepared as described in menu. They were very meaty with no filler. There were 2 large parties and the seasoning was delicious and I would order these again in a heart beat. I do wish this entree came with more than green beans. Would have preferred that for $34, the meal included a small salad and another side, but all items on the menu are a la carte. As for the ambiance, it was meh. The place is relatively small on the inside and the screened-in patio area had this weird clay-colored turf. The food was very good, but the decor could use some help.

We experienced a delightful greeting upon arrival which made us feel very welcomed. Our server Geo was fabulous. He had great suggestions for food and wine and was very attentive to us making us feel like we were his only customers (yet we knew we weren't). The food was delicious...so tasty and our lunch ended with a yummy key lime pie dessert and a happy birthday song. What a great experience :-)

Always wonderful. This is the very definition of a 'neighborhood gem'. There is a finite menu, but everything on it is special. This time I debated the grilled halibut, but went for Jack's Creole, which is one of my all time favorites in the Atlanta area.

We had a lovely dinner on Friday night. This is one of our first-choice dinner places in the neighborhood. The food was lovely (special Lobster tails were delicious), Sam took a great care of us, the wine (Cab from Napa Valley) was just perfect. we love Brooklyn cafe!

Food is always consistently good and service spot on. We got the round table that we requested and wonderful that it was in the back since one of group wears hearing aids and noise all around is harder. We did not feel rushed - and we all had a wonderful evening.

The lamb was tough and undercooked.

We have had it before and it was delicious.

Though we reserved a couple of weeks before, our seating left a lot to be desired.

The food was delicious and filling! Service was great, servers were prompt, and staff was all about a great experience. The ambiance was really loud. I was there for a 1on1 business lunch meeting on the enclosed patio (winter time). I didn't expect silence but it was hard to hear at times due to a lunchtime birthday party next to us. All in all, I'd go back again and recommend.

What can you add to a perfect meal. Food and service were outstanding and the portions are more than adequate, especially when you realize how fair the pricing is.
I suggest you check this neighborhood jewel out ASAP.
Also you get a very good pour on drinks and wines at a very good price.

Another wonderful meal at Brooklyn Cafe! Enjoyed the Lobster Bisque that is described on the menu as bisque with large lump crab meat. No crab meat to be found but our waiter very nicely replaced my bisque with a some lump crab. We both enjoyed the crab cake salad that is delicious and the key lime pie. Yummy!

Every time we go there it’s just a weird experience. The food is good but the people that work there are not very nice. Despite getting there at 530 with a reservation, when the restaurant was pretty much empty, we got crammed in the back by the kitchen at a tiny table. Then our server asked if we were ready to order the first time she came to the table and only told us about one special (we overheard another server telling another table about a few others). We asked to hear the specials again when she came back and still just the one. My husband asked about the others and she gave very abbreviated descriptions. He ended up ordering one, based on the other server’s recommendation that we were able to hear. My wine came after about 20 minutes. We were rushed through our meal and were there less than an hour, which happened to be ok in this instance because we had somewhere to be, but any other time we would like to actually enjoy our dinner. The food is good but the people that work there are not welcoming and after giving it several chances we will not be back.

Luis was amazing!!! He was attentive, charming, well-versed on menu items, and a perfectionist with getting everything out. He made our celebration over-the-top perfect! The food was just unbelievably delicious! The seasonings and combination of flavors are outstanding! Can’t wait to go back!

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!
