We understand the relationship between excellent flavor and the environmentally-sustainable and transparent practices of the farms with whom we collaborate. We have a particularly special connection to our farm in Rhinebeck, NY run by Jake's mother, Andi Novick. From Gristmill Farm we've learned that the best soil produces the most delicious and nutrient dense food - feed the soil, not the plant.

Delicious and warm.
Great spot for Easter brunch. Their reimagining of the Bloody Mary was so great
Excellent all around - had something other than the pizza this time, and the burger and fried chicken were totally amazing.
Service REALLY slow.
Apps came out with quickly but then one entree came out 10 minutes after the first hit the table. Disappointing when we wanted to eat at the same time.
Pizza was bland, salad overdressed, kitchen was too loud. Don't recommend.
Such a great dinner at Gristmill. The chef, Jake, was kind enough to stop by and share the provenance of many of the delightful dishes we had the pleasure of sampling. Perfect pizza, impeccable service, and very thoughtful ingredients.
There were 4 adults and one 3 year old; the waitress could not have been more kind and helpful to a squirming child! Food was delicious and we tried many of the menu items; pizza, kale salad, carrots and all 3 to share plates; we had leftovers which were nicely packaged.
A good family and adult spot; looking forward to the garden being open!
Every dish we ordered was so good and very tasty - from the salads, pizza, and the best Fried Chicken we’ve ever eaten. We also enjoyed the easy pace of dinner as it allowed us to take our time to enjoy our food, talk, and actually not feel rushed. We will definitely come back.
Did not realize we would have seating so close to open kitchen. It was uncomfortably warm. Ordered a pizza and had to wait way too long. They tried to appease us by giving us 2 specialty rolls on the house. Food was good not great.
Gristmill is worth the commute if you're not in Park Slope. The integrity and transparency of the kitchen at Gristmill is really high and not something to take for granted, and they obviously apply a lot of care to everything they do. I love open kitchens, which Gristmill has, and they list the farm source of every menu item without being obnoxious about it. Their big wood fired stove is also awesome to see them using. The ambiance is casual and good for almost anything - a date, friends, family - though best to keep the parties 4 or under.
I had the roasted vegetable has for brunch, and the vegetables were cut into perfect cubes that cooked perfectly evenly, and was delicious.
Very good pizza, remarkable crust. But when they're crowded, the wait is long. One oven + lots of tables + menu is 80% pizza = substantial waiting around for pizza.
Perfect place for brunch. The best grandma slice I have ever had. The corn bread and the mushroom gravy were great too. It’s a very cozy friendly small restaurant with a sweet staff. I love coming back here.
Brought the family for dinner. Good apps for sharing, everything is made in their wood-fired oven. Tasty pizza in a nice atmosphere. I was skeptical about sourdough being a good fit for pizza but it definitely works. Will be back.
Delicious pizza with interesting combinations. Pair that up with a salad and nice wines - a fun evening.
Excellent local restaurant with great service and great cocktails.
Can't believe it's taken me so long to find this gem that's only a couple of blocks away. Creative, tasty, farm to table. Good drinks to accompany and a friendly, helpful wait staff.
Atmosphere is outstanding and wait service was great too. The food was very good but I didn't get the whole farm to table feel since we didn't have any fresh veggies with our meals. We had the cheese pizza and cheeseburger...I have a few suggestions: A fresh herb on the pizza would have made it sing...otherwise very good. The hamburger was good and I really liked how it was cooked in the oven. However an aioli sauce on a plain cheeseburger is just too much fat and think ketchup is a better option—really need lettuce, tomato, or a fresh veggie to make mayonnaise necessary. And most importantly the potato chips have no place in your establishment. I understand your not frying anything but you got to come up with something else or just leave them out all together. I don't go to a nice place out like the Gristmill to eat potato chips. Add a pickle or roast some stringed cut root vegetable—something! Hope this helps. We will come again to try some of your other options!
love the sour dough pizza, local food, and wonderful atmosphere. One of my favorite restaurants
The pizza wasn't that good. Sourdough just isn't a very good canvas for pizza.
We always love coming to Gristmill! The staff are friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the food they serve. Everything is locally sourced, delicious, and thoughtfully prepared.
We come often and the food is always delicious, so glad we found this neighborhood gem!
Can’t go wrong with the burger and all of their pizzas are great!
The atmosphere is laid back and elevated simultaneously.
I met a friend here for brunch out of convenience of the location. I ordered a bacon egg and cheese sandwich-it was alright, I felt the egg was a little under-cooked as it appeared super runny and tasted a bit funky. Other than that, the service was great. I would probably give them another shot.
Brunch food was good but tried too hard to be Hipster Ironic.
Even the grandma slice lacked much substance & little, to no cheese !
Cheese My Slice Please !
Some of the best pizza I've had! Clever menu. Great place.
I great place to go! Their pizza is delicious, but they also have really fun and delicious things on the menu. Drink menu is also excellent.
The menu here is unusual, with a number of interesting small plates, excellent pizzas and four or five main dishes. Our group of six shared all but one of the small plates and then two pizzas, and it was all first-rate. My wife and I have been here many times, but the rest of our party were at Gristmill for the first time and they were very impressed. The menus options are fairly heavy, but man are they tasty!
Food was incredible plus the local beers are a nice treat.
Excellent food - sourdough pizzas, great pork belly, friendly service. The only drawback would be a limited menu if you’re in the mood for variety.
Great spot. The food is always up to par and the service is equally good!
Great neighborhood spot, with wonderful pizzas and breads baked in a brick oven, great salads, and small plates. All the ingredients are sourced from local farms and producers using sustainable methods and the origin of each is described on the menu. The menu is limited--mostly pizzas, small plates, a burger--but it's all delicious. My husband and I split a huge and tasty baby kale salad, and shared a pepperoni pizza that was finished with burnt honey and was really unique and special--not much like a traditional pepperoni pizza! They have a nice selection of interesting beers and wines, and the staff is really nice. It's a warm room, nicely but simply decorated, with a very welcoming vibe and the bathroom has very cool black and white keith haring tiles. If this place was around the corner, we'd be there all the time--as it is we still travel 20+ blocks to eat there every few months because it's such a great all round experience. Our last visit was a date night but it's great for kids too.
The food, as always, was excellent. My only complaint is that we were sat right by the door on a cold night.
The place was a mess, dirty unoccupied tables everywhere. It took 10 min before a host even came near us to seat us. We sat at the bar where, once our order was taken, we never saw anyone again until our food arrived 20 min later.
The burger was cooked well done despite being ordered medium rare but no one came near us to check in so it just sat there. And is was expensive!
Best Breads Ever! This was a great find in Brooklyn's Park Slope/Crown Heights area which is full of good restaurants to choose from. It's a standout farm to table menu but the bread is baked right on the premises and make the restaurant smell divine while you eat . Wait staff is nice and friendly and there is outdoor seating as well. This is a keeper just for the breads and pizza alone. We will be back.
Everything was the best version of itself. Never had a softer, fluffier quiche. Friendly service and the concord grape pie (like all their pies) was such a salty sweet concoction
Pleasantly surprised by this little place. The ambiance isn't great...too light, but the food is really good and the service is great. Super super friendly and knowledgeable.
I love Gristmill! I have been there a hand full of times for the great food and great service but this time service was really lacking..
Love their grandma's pizza. It's no longer on the written menu but still available. They use sourdough crust. Also great Kale Cesar Salad.
We came for pizza which was good, but both pizzas that the server recommended had ricotta and sesame seeds so that was overkill.
Love the locally sourced ingredients and innovative flavors.
Great fish, beef and salad bar. Price is fair. Wait staff always friendly.
Should seat you when you arrive not make you wait for your party.
Otherwise nice evening meal.
The food was, as always, especially good. Love their sourdough pizza crusts!
