It was really great being a part of an atmosphere where they treat you like family. The service was great and the food was amazing! Definitely worth the drive.

The service is always prompt and friendly. Many servers have worked there a long time so we know each other's faces. The grilled lobster and shrimp special is my favorite, but I also love many of the starters and entrees on the regular menu.

My new favorite dish in Atlanta. The lamb chops are absolutely amazing but on top of the taste the portion size is unbelievable.....5 chops for $26.00. By far the best I have ever had.

Very long wait even though we had a reservation. About 12 people came in at the same time & it was pretty chaotic - no proper check in process.
Waited 30 minutes & grabbed a glass of wine at the bar
It’s been some time since we ate here - the wait was worth it!!
Amazing food - the special was Ribs & probably the best we’ve ever had
We also had AMAZING lamb chops - switched out the sides for mash & green beans. Cooked to perfection & delicious.
The wine selection is pretty good too & reasonably priced
We will be back

Another wonderful birthday lunch at Brooklyn Cafe! Wonderful service from Sam. We thoroughly enjoyed the crab cake salad and grilled artichoke hearts. The only disappointment was with my leftovers. I ate less than half of my meal so I asked the server to box up my meal. I was disappointed to see, when I got home, that maybe 1 tablespoon of the crab cake was there. If you take food home, box it yourself. This is my favorite neighborhood restaurant and I look forward to returning.

Always delicious with good service; think it is time to add a few new items. Your tomatoes are the best. Had lunch with my daughter , and food was tasty; however the parking is abominable .

Very enjoyable. Only one negative. I made a reservation for two (women) at 6:30 Saturday. The hostess led us to a deuce table back at the entrance of the hall to the bathrooms or kitchen. Anyway it is the least desirable table in the restaurant. This has happened on two occasions at your restaurant. Women (and gray hair seniors) seem to get these tables quite often in restaurants. I am hoping this was just a coincidence at your restaurant.

First, the service was impeccable. Friendly, sincere and very attentive. The food was delicious...very large portions and tasty. The reviews hold true; this place I will definitely return with friends and family alike. My meal was so tasty and hot. Very good wine list. I didn’t see a traditional drink menu but I did see a few martinis so there is a full bar.

The only con is it was packed!!! The space is somewhat tight and can be very loud.

Brooklyn Cafe is our hands down favorite restaurant in Atlanta. The food is always excellent. Wine selection is superior to any of the upscale restaurants and very competitively priced. The atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming with an interesting art gallery that changes often. With an exceptional staff that will soon know you as friend there is a loyal following so it's best to make a reservation.

Brooklyn Cafe is a favorite, go-to neighborhood gem. The food is always fresh and the staff is super friendly and helpful. It is very popular, so recommend making reservations. The crab cakes are the best in Atlanta, but don't tell anyone.

Extremely noisy people on each side of us. Ordered salad with light application of salad dressing. It was given to us with no salad dressing at all. Had to flag server to get dressing on the side. Not the best night we have had at Brooklyn Cafe.
