                                  We walked in to a smell of Pinesol so strong, it burned the nostrils. We were meeting friends so we took our seats when normally we would have turned straight back to the door and left. With 10 minutes we were the only diners in the restaurant and our waiter was trying to hurry us from minute one. The food was pretty good but the staff so obviously wanted us out of there, they were sitting in their coats at the bar and dragging garbage bins past our table as we ate dessert. They were just so stunningly rude that we gave up and left. Unbelievable experience. We'll never return.

                                  Went for dinner date with my wife. Had the yuca tater tots and heirloom tomatoes to start then the salmon and fried chicken. Everything tasted great, fried chicken was the tastiest I’ve had in a while. I even left my sunglasses on the table and our server ran after us down the street to return them so A+ service.

                                  The service was excellent, as well as the food; however, the portions were very small and the prices high. The restaurant is nice and homey.

                                  The food and service were just okay. Plenty of better options out there; no plans to return. Ambiance was very pretty and relaxed with nice outdoor tables in front.

                                  I love this place, I've been there at least half a dozen times and I haven't had a bad meal yet. Their brunch is particularly good.

                                  We've been coming to this place almost since they opened. It is small (& sometimes a bit tight in terms of seating), but the food is amazing … the wine selection unique … the service always attentive & always charming. I cannot recommend this place enough.

                                  All the dishes were excellent. I was surprised that this place is not busier. One of the best meals I've had in Park Slope.

                                  An absolutely delightful dining event - though our whole party was vegetarian, the options for us were more than usually delightful - each dish was fresh, flavorsome and surprising, from the pecan in the squash soup to the creaminess of the beet pasta. The service was unflaggingly attentive and courteous and though the room wasn't overwhelming in its decor, it was charming with a great, though unobtrusive soundtrack. We agreed we'd be back!

                                  Kiwiana does everything right with a small menu. The salmon with Brussels sprouts and lardons was inspired. I won't eat restaurant fried chicken anywhere but at Kiwiana. The wine list is excellent, the service thoughtful. We have a great thing in Park Slope at Kiwiana.

                                  I had a great time here, it was so nice to go to a great restaurant and not be in a crazy loud environment. The only problem I had, was that my wife and I sat down way before the tables on either side of us, and both of them got their entrees before we did, and they ordered the same thing that we did. As someone who has been in food service for 10+ years that makes absolutely no sense.

                                  Exquisite experience all around. The owner, Mark Simmons, waited on us himself (it was a very quiet night a couple of days after New Year’s), and he was exquisite — factual, quietly confident, not boasting. And there was a LOT for him to boast about! The room is quietly elegant, charming, and cozy. An extensive beer and wine list, with several cocktail selections that looked quite delicious. Every single thing we ordered was perfect — the white bait latkes, octopus salad, short ribs, and three plates of fried chicken with truffle honey and kale slaw. Had we had room, we’d have ordered dessert. But that will have to wait for our next visit! A perfect five-star experience all around.

                                  Kiwiana is the perfect neighborhood restaurant. Laid back, great food, and all at an affordable price. I even had an engagement brunch here and their special event treatment greatly exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend coming in and for the coffee connoisseur, order a flat white!

                                  We were a party of seven for Christmas Eve dinner, and Kiwiana did not disappoint. We had a teenager with us, so I was a bit concerned that he might not find a dish that appealed to him, but he really enjoyed his NY strip steak. The service was warm, friendly, and very attentive, yet we never felt as if someone were hovering over us. The space is small and cozy with a very comfortable, relaxed ambience. Music was playing at a good volume: loud enough to hear it, but not so loud that we had to speak loudly over it. We ordered a number of shared plates: salmon ceviche, whitefish latkes, beets and ricotta, and yucca tater tots. For our entrées, we had the strip steak, burgers, fried chicken, and lamb(?), all of which was delicious. The desserts were fantastic, especially the pavlova. The lemon poppyseed pannacotta was delicious, as well as the pecan bread with a salted caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Thank you for the wonderful meal and service for our special holiday dinner!

                                  Food was a tad oversalted and overdressed but otherwise very enjoyable

                                  An underrated gem that should always be in the conversation about great Brooklyn restaurants.

                                  It was fairly quiet for us, for people fairly early on a Saturday evening, so service was very attentive and quick. The chef came out to say hi which is always appreciated. Could easily have had anything on the menu, looking forward to returning.

                                  Chef Marc's cuisine is awesome. We have a love for kiwi cuisine and stumbled across this place while wandering through Brooklyn. The food was creative yet comforting and made us feel right at home. Marmite Pork Belly fell off the bone with a fork and was to die for. We will definitely be back.

                                  I took my two twenty-something cousins who were visiting from Israel as well as my daughter and her boyfriend here for an 8 o'clock pm Thursday reservation. We were all quite happy. The service was outstanding and the host made a special effort to explain and accomodate the menu to one of my young cousins who has celiac disease and eats gluten-free. The food was delicious, Two people ordered the lamb chops which, as expected, was a small portion, but the size and price of the same thing in any restaurant I've been to in the US. They said that it was delicious. I had ribs which were absolutely terrific, someone else had salmon which was cooked and served perfectly, and the "Kiwi" burger was terrific as well. Dessert was delicious-extremely fresh and nice portions. The restaurant is not big but it is nicely decorated, and the bar looks great. I highly recommend Kiwiana.
