Cherry Point is a modern English restaurant in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, steps from picturesque McCarren Park. Set in a former Polish butcher shop, the space has been transformed creating a warm, convivial atmosphere with rich maple floors, copper-topped bar, chef’s table, and lively open kitchen.

Our seasonal menu features responsibly sourced produce and animals, along with fresh local seafood. Along with craft cocktails and draft beers, we offer accessible wines from independent European producers featuring organic, natural, and biodynamic varietals.

Cherry Point is owned and managed by restaurateur Vincent Mazeau and beverage director Garret Smith (The Finch and Vinegar Hill House). Chef Ed Szymanski (The Beatrice Inn) helms the kitchen. —each contribute to its distinct vibe.

Food was disappointing unfortunately. We were rooting for this neighborhood place but inconsistent food (compared to past times visited) and very very salty. Don’t think we’ll be returning.

Had a lovely meal at Cherry Point last night. Everyone from the hostess to the servers was super pleasant, and the restaurant has a lovely, comfortable vibe. Our server, Devon, was amazing--friendly, helpful (when we couldn't decide on drinks, he brought tastes to help us make the decision), available but not hovering. And, the food was spectacular. The oysters with rosemary hollandaise were spectacular, as were the pate, lamb ribs, and tartare. We almost never order dessert, but were so excited about the food, we splurged, and weren't disappointed.

Truly a gem, and very well priced. We'll be back.

Enjoyed our night out at Cherry Point. Every thing we tried was very tasty. The steak tartare and duck were standouts, but the other 3 dishes were very good as well. Loved the affordable wine list. So many choices around $50, it’s a no brainer on whether I’ll be back.

Food and atmosphere was outstanding. We had the nicest waitress who knew her stuff. The food was interesting and well made. It is not a huge menu but it was varied and there was something for all the members of our group. We also enjoyed the wine list. We will definitely go back.

High marks across the board. Smart attentive servers who really know and understand what this chef is putting out but also savvy on the specialty cocktails (which are on the small side but cost less).

The food is just fantastic. Though it is a meat centric and hearty meal. There is nothing we ordered on the menu that I wouldn’t love to order again.

The room is rustic gastro-pub casual and comfortable.

Amazing sourdough bread also coming out of this kitchen grilled and crackling!

My partner took me for my birthday and we had the 4 course Game and Beef Dinner. The chef, Ed had previously cooked at The Beatrice Inn where we celebrated last year and had a great meal so I was looking forward to it.
And he did not disappoint!
The food was awesome. Delicious, well prepared and presented, and generously apportioned. I’ve seen others complain about stingy plates; I mean, really?! Beef tartare piled high on a 5 inch square, inch and a half thick piece of sourdough toast isn’t enough? Please.
Another stand-out was the accompaniment to the pheasant and bacon pie: a pot of silky potato purée topped with a hunk of marrow which as you stir melts into swirls of beefy unctuousness. Now that’s meat and potatoes!
The sticky toffee pudding is delicious, dark and rich, but the perfect dessert for such a meal is the posset.
Custard and citrus suprêmes with pieces of vanilla bean merengue broken over. all to be stirred together in a kaleidoscope of flavors and textures.

All in all, the perfect birthday dinner!

Was very impressed with this restaurant overall. We had the steak for two . One of the best steaks we have had in quite some time. It outshined any of the local steak houses. It is served with bone marrow. An absolute great pairing. The salad and desert were also great. The wait staff was attentive. Completely enjoyed the service. An after dinner cognac that completed the meal so nicely. Looking forward to our next meal there. This is now our neighborhood go to restaurant.

the service was fantastic but I ordered the skate dish and it had a ton of bones. maybe that's the way this fish comes but why choose that fish then? who wants to sit there and pick out bones? my boyfriend ordered the duck, which he loved but food portions were small on both plates. however, the oyster happy hour was great and so was the martini i ordered.

This is a top dining experience! The food is earthy and sophisticated, with impeccable ingredients. The service is polished but not at all fussy. My favorites were the oysters with a smoked rosemary finish, charcuterie, savory pies (exquisite pastry!) and of course, the modern preparations of meat and bone marrow. The desserts are inventive yet very satisfying: comforting and familiar without being the same old thing. For example the Earl Grey meringue was a great counterpoint to a dessert’s sweetness.

Our meal was amazing! Every aspect of it was enjoyable. We went with the meat (fowl) pie for our main course--so glad that we did. The pie was packed with wonderful flavors--from the filling to the crust. We also enjoyed our starters and desserts (fantastic texture to the quince meringue dish and sticky toffee pudding). The waitstaff was attentive without being intrusive. Definitely a meal we'll remember and a place we would highly recommend.

Very good food, but terrible service. The waiter did not show up at our table until 15 minutes after we sat down and had to be told to do so by a colleague who we flagged down. Also, the prices were pretty high given the amount of food served. I mean, I get that it is a hipster joint in Brooklyn, but only 3 oysters per serving, small strips of duck for the entree and a pretty chintzy charcuterie plate. That said the cheeseburger was amazing, as advertised, along with the pigs head croquettes, but everyone in my party felt a bit disappointed by both the service and overall value...

We came for my mom's birthday brunch and enjoyed everything! My mom and I split the Admiral's Board and it was super delicious. The music volume was a little high but the restaurant was cozy, wasn't overly crowded and we didn't feel rushed at all (which is a rare find for Sunday brunch.) The staff members were all very friendly and surprised my mom with birthday desserts which made her feel special. I would definitely come back!
