Cherry Point is a modern English restaurant in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, steps from picturesque McCarren Park. Set in what was once a 1930’s Polish butcher shop, the space has been reworked 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.

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!

We had the burger and duck both of which were amazing! I was not entirely a fan of the white fish croquettes but that was because it tasted too much like potatoes...which was very filling. The fries however are SO delicious, the perfect amount of seasoning and crisp! I would definitely go again and again...and highly recommend.

I planned a group dinner Friday night, the food was phenomenal and the staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. We had the large table in the back which made me feel like I was hosting in my own home. We were having such a nice time we had more people meet us there for drinks instead of going out. Highly recommend

I'd walked by Cherry Point quite a few times, I live nearby in E. Williamsburg. DIdn't know to go in til I got an ad from Murray's about the menu (I'm a cheese person.) Made an unusually late reservation- 9pm on Saturday night- and ran into 2 cheese friends when we sat down! One from NJ! We had an amazing meal, enjoyed every bite. Loved the menu. The waiter was friendly, informative, warmed up to us as the meal progressed, and we heaped on the food praise. And then the dessert: the sticky pudding thing. I did not know how much I would like it, let my boyfriend select it, which I almost never do. WOW. A great end to a wonderful meal.
