Gran Torino is a cafe, restaurant & bar with an attached delicatessen and wood burning pizza oven. We have a large garden, greenhouse, courtyard and a boat! Some areas like the the greenhouse and courtyard are covered. Other areas have umbrellas. Nevertheless we think you will enjoy our outdoor area in all weather conditions. We sanitize our tables after every use and we sanitize our bathrooms every 2 hours. Let's all stay safe! We do require that all guests wear face masks while standing or walking. Located on the corner of North 7th at 131 Berry, it’s Williamsburg’s coolest destination for drinks, dinner and discovery.

Super pleasant meal in the Spring with a couple of friends. Great drink list, and the decor was retro and captivating. Delicious fish and chips for my meal, with a literal cauldron of tartar sauce. Would recommend!

Terrible. They asked us to order a food item per person which is not compatible with the state executive order. Rude service. Poorly managed

We sat for 45 minutes before our waiter came over to take our order. Then he took off his mask, and sat on the lap of an unmasked patron!

The place is really nice, food was good, not amazing but good. The service was not as great as we thought, we first made our reservation for an outdoor table just to be told that outdoor tables are for 4 or more people, which I understand but why didn't they mention that earlier, we booked this place because of how the garden looked like.

After that, I don't know if it's a post-covid thing but we were constantly looking for a waiter because they never approached our table, it was really hard to find someone who could help.

Overall it was good, but the service could be better.

The person in charge of placing us on table wasn't very friendly, so I feel quite uncomfortable with his service. The waiter was very nice, however I would have like he explained that the sauces for our burger was spicy.

Had a great time here. A group of my coworkers and I got tested and came here for the evening. Covid safety measures were in place and service was great. The charcuterie was fantastic! Good drinks and really good pizza. Highly recommend the funghi!

Really great food and service for my birthday with a lot of vegetarian options. My party was in the yurt and the staff was very attentive and accommodating. The cocktails aren’t very strong so I recommend saving your money and sticking with beer or wine.

The place was over all just okay. Very cute place and the ambience was very chill. The menu is small but with options even for vegetarians (less for vegans) . My issue was more with service. We were taking off our coats when the server first walked up to us and he bombarded us with drinks but obviously we hadn't seen the menu yet so we told him we needed a minute. He left, we waited, my bf went to the bathroom and we waited some more. 20 mins after we sat down we finally put our drink order in and what was suppose to be our appetizer. We got 2 old fashions and a Brocolyn pizza. The pizza was amazing, cheese salted to perfection and not at all oily. My drink came in a chipped glass. We sent it back right away.... still I got the pizza before my actual drink. We enjoyed the pizza enough that we will come back but we are in no rush. Fastest thing to get to the table was the check.

We were told the huts would be warm, we were freezing. The workers who walked by kept opening the curtain and letting more cold in every time. They gave us only 5 glasses and 3 menus for 6 people and needed to ask for another glass and more menus more than once. The food came out in two waves, so half of us were finished eating when the other half got their food. The first half of the food came out at the same time as our drinks. Not to mention the additional info that I wrote in when I made the reservation was ignored.

Love this place. Staff were very accommodating to us and were especially understanding with a couple from our party being late due to traffic and parking issues with the recent snow storms. I was incredibly worried they would void our reservation because of this, and really appreciated them letting us still sit after being late!

Food and drinks came quick and our server often checked on us throughout the process even offering to make mocktails for one member of our group who wasn't drinking.

The outdoor seating setup here is great and provides ample space for social distancing, heat lamps for each table, and for larger parties private "yurt" like structures with curtains which I thought was really a nice addition. They've done such a good job making outdoor seating in the winter, enjoyable!

Only qualm is that our cocktails didn't taste like there was any alcohol in it and weren't very strong. But otherwise, no complaints.

The ambiance was very nice however the generator died and all electricity went off. It was very dark and cold while they figured out how people can pay with all machines down. Also our server forgot our drinks and didn’t bring them until the end of the meal. However, the food was pretty good.

We enjoyed another wonderful evening at this restaurant. The food is truly amazing and the menu is outstanding so many great options to choose from. The atmosphere is nice they play very good music, we particularly love Gran Torino because it’s not a loud place and you can have a conversation with people at your table.
We will definitely be back soon
