Menu was very limited. Only had 3 entrees, which left us with no other option but to leave and find another place to eat.

The music is way too loud, making it impossible to have a conversation without yelling. Additionally, the restaurant menu is significantly pared down from what is listed on the website. They are trying too hard to be 'it's without putting out a solid basic product.

We had reservations but when we got to the restaurant the lights were on but nobody was there and we called several times our reservation was not acknowledged because no one was there. We are very disappointed and wanted to try the restaurant but we were not able to because no one showed up.

Service was great, food came out in a timely fashion, and our champagne flutes were never empty. My favorite party about Brooklyn is the ambiance, definitely a vibe and will return.

The staff at Brooklyn did a great job of accommodating my group for a friend's birthday. The servers and DJ were very helpful and easy to work with. Definitely recommend this place for Sunday brunch, a nice dinner, or an evening at the bar.

Our table (party of 3) was taken from us before our two hour window was with no explanation during brunch service. So we’re sitting at our table with another party of three — who we don’t know — who looked just as confused as we were. There was also ample seating at the bar and at a table beside us the server could have seated them at. Then we were rushed through our last thirty minutes.

Food is great but service needs work.

I ordered curry chicken and it tasted like nothing. My friend’s ordered pizza and that was good. Not amazingly good, but good. Ambiance is chill they play hip hop r&b hits. I’d come again and get pizza and just vibe out. Making a reservation was really easy too

Thank you for being so gracious in hosting my group! The service, food, and ambiance were fantastic. The staff were very accommodating with seating us at a table we preferred. We will definitely return. Cinco De Mayo was fun!

It was sooo loud! Had to yell to her the server and my friend, who I was with. Clearly this place is trying to create a club atmosphere, but it was only 8pm. The music could stay a little lower till 9 or 10.

Waited about 30-45min to be seated but that was because we came late passed our scheduled time. They offered mimosas while we waited and were very nice. Food was amazing. Mariah working there took care of me and my other friends very well and she’s just the best. I’d go back every weekend for good, music, atmosphere and everything else.

The food was really good, and the ambiance with the DJ was great. There were some significant concerns, however. While we recognized that the place is new, there were missing items on the menu, and for opening service, some of the key items were not included. Additionally, the waitress wasn't too versed on the menu and wasn't familiar with a number of the side items, etc. The place has tremendous potential, though, and I look forward to trying it out again in a month or so once they have had a chance to iron out the wrinkles. Great potential for a trendy new brunch spot. I hope they succeed.

Went to Brooklyn on U for the first time with my fellow lady-friends for our own personal Ladies-Night. We had a great time! Great ambience. Nice and clean with a modern vibe. The Dj was on point. The pizza was okay, but the drinks were great...and strong! Pricing is a bit high but expected for U street these days. We will definitley be back! Oh yeah, and they also had a vey handsome staff!

I arrived earlier than my date but the staff was very accommodating. I was promptly seated in a dinning booth in front of TV's and upon my request, they turn it to the March Madness tournament!! I didn't order too much food but from observing the other customer's dishes, the pizzas and wings looked to be tastey...I'll definitely be returning to Brooklyn in the near future.

I really loved the overall ambiance of the location. My date was from Brooklyn so it was a wonderful surprise for him. The food was mediocre at best to me. The flavors were bland and I would consider having a more tasty menu. The drinks were decent but I did ask for a substitution on the Gin. I truly loved the floral candle table decorations, it was a great touch.

Aside from the location being really conveniently located near the Lincoln Theatre, I can't say many good things about it. The menu looks good upon inspection, but the food was tasteless and disappointing: the pizza crust was like cardboard, fried chicken lacked flavor, and the mac and cheese was gritty and runny. The music was blaring so loud that we had to shout at each other while we ate. We will try something else the next time we see a show at the Lincoln.

Went to Brooklyn for dinner and drinks with a group of girlfriends! We had the best time! The decorations, especially the real flower arrangements, were absolutely stunning. Music and ambiance was really fun and inviting. The cocktails were fantastic with unique flavors and real edible flowers! Everyone was also very pleased with their dinners. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly ! The salads, pizza, and mac cheese also looked amazing and I can't wait to come back to try. The waitress explained that downstairs was more of a restaurant and upstairs was more of a lounge. I definitely plan to come back again to check out the other food and lounge upstairs!
