    We have really enjoyed Gair as a bar so we tried them for a family brunch. FYI, they do not have high chairs so if you are dining with little ones, plan accordingly. They would definitely benefit from having a bit more staff. There was one waitress for the establishment and we never saw her after we placed our food and drink order. The food was very tasty, the pancakes were very good and the avocado toast was "different" but tasty. Portions are very small for a brunch menu. The drinks and coffee were good. The staff accidentaly gave one of our dishes to a different table when they brought the food out and then the kitchen took over 25 minutes to get the correct dish so one our guests did not get to eat. We might try them in the evening for dinner, maybe the staff will have their stuff together later in the day.

    The service was really not great. The wait staff were all super nice but super overwhelmed. We were without drinks for quite a bit of the evening. We tried a bunch of the food and everything was good.

    Service was not great. the woman working there seemed to not really care. I tried to waive her down a couple times but was ignored. Ambiance was nice though. Will probably not come back.

    My second visit to Gair was such a great time. They had a special drink menu in honor of Black History Month, where part of the sales go towards a charity! Additionally, my waitress was very attentive and friendly the entire night! Can't wait for my next visit.

    I came here once when they first opened and it was great, they didn’t have food service yet at the time but when I saw they opened for dinner I was excited to see what they had. Unfortunately, it appears that going out to eat just keeps getting worse and worse. I’m not sure if it’s the cooking or the price at Gair that makes it more disappointing, but something has to change. The charcuterie was something you would find at a nice grocery store, if the grocery store had never put together a charcuterie board before. Either bread or crackers, but not bread that’s harder than a cracker. The burger is initially good but half way through you realize you’re covered in oil. Also the waitress never relayed the “no onions please” to the chef. If you can’t remember the entire order, a pen and paper works wonders. To top it off, I wanted to indulge in some simple cookies, when the waitress said they were “very good” I was thinking I was about to sink my teeth into a nice gooey chocolate chip cookie. Instead, we got three, nearly black, burnt cookies. I have hope for this place, but it needs work.

    Been a regular Gair visitor since they opened but things changed drastically since then. It's not the "neighborhood" cocktail lounge that that claim they wanted to be. The first few months have been great! Amazing cocktails and friendly bartenders.. but since they got popular on Insta, service has done down. Lady bartender was rude to me when I asked a replacement for a glass of water that had a huge crack on it. The bottle of bubbly we ordered was room temp. Kitchen closed early on NYE which was lame. Vibe has become the IG wannabe's and the too cool for social interaction millennials. I hope another local neighborhood bar opens up so I can move on from this Instagram nonsense.

    It was very nice. The place had a good ambiance, the holiday decor was in correlation to the holidays. The smash burger is AMAZING! Their drinks are good too I got a Jalisco Sol. Would recommend for a date night, friend outing, or even going solo! And of course it’s in the corner of the famous Brooklyn bridge location in Dumbo.

    The food was good but I was disappointed that the menu on their website was not updated. I went there wanting specific items but when I got there they didn’t have much to choose from so I had a chicken sandwich and a burger…both good but I wanted the shrimp and octopus carpaccio…something light to enjoy with my cocktail’s. The amazing dessert and pleasant staff saved the evening

    We had a wonderful time! The chicken sandwich, smash burger, and kale caesar salad were all fantastic. Continue to love the Jalisco Sol and Daytrippin’ cocktails! Staff is delightful and space is absolutely gorgeous.

    The restaurant was not busy at all but because of its design and the acoustics, the music made it so difficult to talk with your company. The wait staff also wasn’t knowledgeable at all about their drink menu and had to check several times with the bartender to be able to describe their drinks. I was excited to go because it looked beautiful but this is a place that I can honestly say that I’m looking forward to never going back to.

    Amazing food and drink in a beautiful setting! The interior is thoughtfully designed with interesting details the merge the historic industrial architecture with high-end contemporary design. This same attention to detail finds it's way into the food and drinks. Great date night spot.
