Champs is usually always great but we did wait an hour for our food to come out. Everyone seated after us got their food before us, so assuming our order wasn’t put in. They seemed to be understaffed, which is sadly the reality and I can understand, but it was disappointing to wait an hour on our food and then 30 mins on the check at a place I usually love.
Love Champs! Always delicious! Miss some of the old menu items, but Covid, so I get it. Go!!
Reuben was spectacular. Cheesecake hit the spot. Water was refreshed consistently, without us asking. Server was very nice. Cozy place to have a warm, mellow dinner on a cold, freezing night.
Great vegan diner! Terrific service.
So incredible as usual!
Love it here. Food is amazing and the staff is always so so nice.
Food is great, service is great, and cost is awesome!
Delicious food and awesome vegan options I never see in other places, made it hard to choose!
Food was delicious as always! Service was alittle slow.
We had a PERFECT first experience at Champs! There with 20 friends for a wedding celebration, we were treated to great service, friendly service ( and friendly customers sharing in our joy). The diner offers plenty of delicious options for vegans and one-time vegans alike. Thank you!
Really impressive unique vegan cuisine and a happy vibe. Very busy when we were there so hard to get service at times but that is understandable.
Everything was great, service and ambience. However, the food I ordered was just ok. I ordered the Mac n cheese and Philly cheesesteak. Both a average. The Buffalo wings were absolutely delicious though, and the peanut butter smoothie was amazing.
Simply fantastic. Great food and great service. Would highly recommend.
The food was good definitely worth it but we went on a slow night and could hear the kitchen staff with a personal radio singing to songs rather loudly. Food was good but the ambiance was a little off.
This was the best vegan breakfast I’ve ever had. I was seriously sad to be done this delightful meal. I will take the trip to Brooklyn again to eat here.
I used to go a lot then I moved to FL and haven’t been in about three years. The mozz sticks weren’t as good as I remember, the cheese was not great. The fish sandwich had no flavor and did not come hot. Seemed like it was microwaved? And to top it all off the milkshake was served w a paper straw. It’s impossible to drink a thick milkshake from a paper straw. There are non plastic alternatives that work better such as corn based ones. To get paper is just ignoring guest experience honestly
First time visiting the vegan OG diner in a long time, and it is still putting out quality vegan food.
Great food great staff, what else could you want
This place had great service and the jalapeño poppers were good but that was about it. We could hear the kitchen shouting and arguing the whole time we were there.
While a tad pricey, this is vegan comfort/diner food at its best. I've been here many times over the years and hey just keep amping up their game.
I don't come here for the service, i come here for the food. Although even now this place has slipped further down my list. They used to have savory dishes like the biscuits but now it's like knock off pub food. It's fine just not special. I was here on Sept 12 and the service was actually horrendous and embarrassing since i chose this place for a date spot. I was a server for 9+ years in 3 different states. The service was awful and while in the past it's usually busy during brunch hours, this day there were open tables left and right of me. Multiple servers so this girl wasn't strapped for hospitality. She'd walk by our table and not look over, her counterparts didn't ever look up from what they were doing... 30+ minutes after our appetizer dropped i had to get her again to order entrees as opposed to the first time where i flagged her over for an appetizer. I used to love this place but it's gone to the pits. Food is mediocre, served on hors'd oeuvres plates. Service was never stellar but has seeming dipped below a plateau. They did adjust my reservation time for me which was a nice thing to do. Silver lining is the food is good enough and the inside ambiance has character.
Champs is so delicious! Great staff and a lively, fun atmosphere. The only downside is it's a little pricey.
Check out their Instagram to find out what specials they have!
Highly recommend the buffalo tots and milkshakes!
the food is way too expensive and not big enough portions or high enough quality to really be worth it
Champs is the best! Always great food and terrific staff.
Absolutely loved it here! The food was so good I had to take some home cause I knew I’d be mad at past me for not doing so. Our server was really sweet and kept coming to check on us making sure everything was ok. Coming back as soon as possible :)
The food was delicious and our waiter had great energy. Would definitely go back.
I had the best experience gong there! The philly cheese steak was better than one you would get in philly. All the food was great and making a reservation was very easy. My server was also amazing!!!!
Excellent food and great service. Perfect vegan restaurant when you’re really hungry! The portions are large and the food is superb. The service is also great and attentive.
We got the Mac and cheese with added broccoli and the breakfast slam. Both excellent!
Wonderful food and service, Viva Champs!
Always a good experience at champs and they brought back the Benny. My absolute favorite dish. Our server was extremely kind too! Always recommended this restaurant its the best ye yeah!
Friendly waitstaff and delicious food. Will go back again
This place is awesome! It's a must try. You will be pleased.
Truly the best vegan food i’ve ever eaten
I enjoyed myself and I will be returning soon
They advertise all week on instagram that they have all these specials. I have a reservation at 115pm and they open at 1pm but tell me they 'ran out' already. Then i asked for another sandwich and that one, they had none of either. The management there is bad. They do not order the right amount of food even though their sandwiches are pretty much the same non-meat substances. They also used to offer a tiny salad with each sandwich and now they charge $4 for that or fries. The place has gone downhill. Server should let people know what they are out of right away.
As always, Champs was awesome! The food is amazing, the servers and host were wonderful!
Going to a restaurant with a 2-year-old is never easy, the tantrums and the constant moving around...not fun for anyone! But the folks at Champs were so sweet and super accommodating! it really makes all the difference! The world needs more places like Champs around!
The food was as great as the service! The only suggestion I would make is to ensure that your entire party is on time for the reservation. 75 minutes per table and they truly enforce that rule. One of my colleagues had to get her meal to go!
Return customer to this awesome vegan restaurant
So happy to see these folks wading back into indoor dining! Really appreciated the spaced tables and temperature checks. Service was excellent and super friendly, as always.
Wonderful, 10/10, always my go-to spot in Brooklyn. The staff is always so pleasant and friendly and the food is always incredible
