Always an outstanding experience. Try the smoked trout dip - I rarely see / hear others ordering this appetizer. It’s really good. I always get the Awesome Fish sandwich for lunch. I’ve had it dozens of times - awesome every time.

The food is excellent, if you can find a parking place to get inside. The parking is extremely limited.

Brooklyn Cafe has always been a favorite - it never wavers, always interesting choices, a couple of specials each time I have been. The service, whether it is during lunch or dinner, is top-notch. Our server Monday night was so personable, timed his stops at the table perfectly and we never felt rushed. We had two over the top delicious appetizers and split the crab cake dinner. I have been fortunate to have traveled often and widely...by far the best crab cakes ever - and GF which I am~ that means, no fillers!
If you have never been, I recommend it highly! OH, their bottles of wine are priced fairly.

Solid, but not outstanding, dining experience. I've been coming here for many years and it's a Sandy Springs institution and deservedly so, but this was not their best night. It started with the worst table in the house in the hall back by the server's area, but it was a last minute reservation so maybe they get a pass on that one - at least it was quiet. Fried green tomato app was not as good as most. Smoke salmon was tasty. Short ribs were pretty good. My son's "medium rare" filet was undercooked and still mooing, but he ate it all anyway and said it was good. The reuben got a good review from my other son. Desserts were average. Decent enough meal, but not deserving of the 5 stars the place seems to usually get,

Usually my favorite restaurant. This time I ordered the trout which wasn't to my liking. Probably my fault since I don't usually like blackened fish

I had the Lobster enchiladas. They were so delicious. My husband had trout. This was an extremely good dinner for both of us!
We come here frequently. It is one of our go to places in the neighborhood.
Almost never disappoints!

We were seated in a very bad place...next to area where waiters pick up the food. After 10 minutes, no waiter came to our table. We finally had to stop the hostess to get someone to pay attention to us. After awhile, someone did come over though he said he wasn’t `our waiter. Very frustrating! Though the food was good, it will be a long time before we return. We saw other people being served...not us.

This place is consistently great. Their menu is limited, but the burgers and fish are perfectly prepared. The waitstaff are friendly and helpful. Don’t be turned off because of the parking situation as there is additional free parking across the street.

Our family has been enjoying Brooklyn Cafe through their additions, now Covid and their
signature specials and quality menu have never wavered in flavor or presentation. The staff are attentive. The menu is varied so there should be some offering that would
please most diners.

We were on the patio but it was closed and person at table next to us was on their speaker phone for about 5-7 minutes. Definitely a bit annoying but certainly not Brooklyn Cafe's fault. Do wish an employee or manager would have asked them to put their phone away.

I was interested to try this restaurant as I’ve heard good things about it and it has quite a following. I was told the crab cakes were their specialty. I ordered the crab cake platter and was quite disappointed. There were two cakes...ok but one was served broken in half on a plate together with a dozen or so overcooked string beans. The combo of a white plate, essentially pale crab cakes and a few beans made the presentation a big meh. For $34, it should at least have included a starch or some slaw.
I really wanted to like the Brooklyn Cafe but I was sorely disappointed.
