Unfortunately, was put at a table near the kitchen door and bus station. Too busy and people constantly passing our table.

Server was excellent! Food was average. Went there for old times sake, but a bit disappointed.

The service was great! The restaurant was a bit noisy, so it was a little difficult to talk. The food was on the level of a decent Italian restaurant - not bad, but nothing to write home about.

What can’t I say about Gargiulos? It is one of our family’s favorite restaurants. We have shared so many occasions and grown up with the staff that they know most of our menu favorites before we even order! The food is always delicious and desserts even more so! If you’re looking for a delicious Italian meal, it is 100% worth heading over to Coney Island and enjoy all Gargiulos has to offer.

It’s been years since I’ve been there, and it was my mom’s first dinner out because of the pandemic, so this was a bit of a celebration for us. Everything was fantastic! The muscles appetizer was some of the best we’ve had. She had the eggplant rolatini appetizer as her meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the shrimp francese and my husband had a chicken entree - everything was great. And our server (Jerry?) was super friendly. We’ll definitely be back!

I went to Gargiulos reluctantly after having 3 previous mediocre experiences there.
The quality of the food has gone down in the last few years and the value is just not there. The waiter was cold and provided the minimum of service. I will not go back unless I have to. There are so many other great Italian restaurants in Brooklyn. I think Gargiulos is surviving on their once excellent reputation.

Loved the seating and was glad they had a full bar. The baked clams are the best choice under appetizers. This place makes a nice filet mignon. Over all I would recommend this place if you want a calm atmosphere to chill with family.

Had a lovely dinner with my elderly mother. Hostess greeted us as we came through the door, was helpful taking her walker while I assisted my mother up the stairs. She seated us without rushing anyone and did the same as we were leaving. My mother truly appreciated her not making a big deal.

Server was pleasant, attentive and efficient but not overbearing or intrusive. Dinner was delicious and unrushed. No pushing to turn the table over.

Quite a nice experience.

There is no place I'd rather dine at! Always a pleasant experience and whatever you choose to order, you will never be disappointed.
Service was not over bearing, it was just enough.
Final bill for 4 couples was a lot less than what we thought.
We will be back.

I’ve been going to Gargiulo’s for over 50 years. I used to be a regular when I lived in Brooklyn but since I moved I just go once in a while. It’s always a treat to be there. I have so many memories, it’s so nostalgic for me. The food, service and ambiance are still impeccable. I had to have my favorite pasta dish Fettuccine Verdi alla Gargiulo, it’s the best. My husband had the Mushroom Risotto, it was delicious. You must go to this Brooklyn legend.

I was somewhat disappointed in the food quality. I ordered the Chicken Fraincaise. I found the chicken a bit tough and the sauce was not as lemony as I thought it would be. I would go back to try something else. It is a beautiful restaurant with great parking. The service is excellent.
