Love Brooklyn Grill but had average night. Out waitress just wasn’t good and very slow. Then we had the fried tomatoes appetizer and it was mush. It’s not fried green tomatoes but regular tomatoes. The Ruben and crab cakes were good as always and everyone was very nice as always.

Dinner with some friends to catch up. They sat us in new room which was much more quiet than the main dining area. Great service and didn’t rush us at all. Food was great. Will definitely return

We always go here when we have guests in town! They have excellent waitstaff that are trained to know each detail of the menu, great drink selections, and a solid variety of food to choose from. No matter how busy they are, you can always expect the best service from them.

Reservation time honored. We were a group of four...first time for 2 of us. Lunch time. Food was delicious: ordered crab cakes, trout (outstanding); key lime pie for dessert...best we ever had. The only downside was it's quite noisy. Highly recommend.

Crab cakes were good but artichokes were drowned in butter. The decor felt like it hadn’t been refreshed since 1985. The bill seemed high. The somewhat saving grace was the young waiter. Really attentive and personal. Seemed to be a popular joint but not sure I’d go back.

We just finished moving our daughter in the apartments across from Brooklyn café we need to sit down and be fed we were exhausted this was absolutely delicious Kayla was a great server she answered questions and was very attentive. We started off with the artichoke appetizer and it was delicious I have been craving artichokes for a while I told my husband when they were sat down on the table that I was actually going to google who had artichokes on their menu in our area and here they were. As tired as I was I knew I wasn’t gonna be able to eat a heavy meal I ordered the Asian salad with fig and herbs it was delicious it was so fresh and crisp and tasty. I didn’t see a notice any figs but I believe that they were in there it was absolutely yummy. I ordered an ad on crabcake to go with my salad and that was delicious as well I’m picky about crabcakes my families from the Outer Banks this was delicious I will be back I may order the exact same thing it was so good I ordered my daughter to go food she was still finishing unpacking she had a sore throat from being so rundown she’s just moved back from Cedar Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills the same week moved into this apartment after buying furniture it was extremely awful week so I ordered her the lobster bisque and the Asian salad and we took her one of the halves of artichokes she said that the soup was delicious and it felt so good on her sore throat. My husband ordered some thing that was like a roast and it had carrots and potatoes he was so happy usually I make him a roast but I’m not in love with it and then there’s so much left over that I don’t make it real often I know that will be back he’ll probably order the same thing. I know we will become often diners here now that our daughter lives across the street this was really delicious.

Refused to give me a booth even though there were 4 available. Had to get the manager and then she gave it to us. They said people reserved them. I had a reservation too!

My favorite restaurant of all time - you can't go wrong with the Smoked Salmon, Lobster Bisque, Crab Cake Salad (or entree) and to finish off your meal a slice of their homemade Key Lime Pie. Best in the city!

As usual, the food was good. We were seated pin the new addition and that was not enjoyable. There was a delivery going on and people kept bringing things by our table son-that was a big distraction. I hope the new area will get more extra loving care. I know this is a hard time for restaurants and I won’t let this keep me from going back. I do love the art work on the walls of new area.

Fantastic, as always! This Maryland girl (who considers myself a crab cake connoisseur) absolutely LOVES their crab cake salad. 100% consistent; 100% wonderful. Such a great place. Wish I didn’t live an hour away now.
