Poor service even if our waiter tried to do his best, short menu not updated (“we do this plate only in wintertime”, “we don’t have this wine anymore, we changed it“ but he didn’t know the price, that was kindly $12.00 higher !!) and with many items not available.
Food : cheese plate small and with “supermarket choice” cheese, mussels over cooked and in a swimming pool of uncooked white wine, profiteroles ok.
Atmosphere ok, nice live jazz, and nice playlist after.
I don’t know if i’ll give a second chance...

Cute little cafe . Service was exceptional. Food was delicious. A bit pricey but would definitely go back. We had the steak for 2. Prepared perfectly. It's an open air restaurant which is very nice except we went on a hot night. No A/C. Great ambiance. Owner stopped to ask how we were. Nice of him to do that. Shows he cares about his customers. Try it. You wont be disappointed!

Excellent food; great service, nice atmosphere. I love Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band, so hearing them on the P.A. was quite an eye-opener. Most of all, my friend who accompanied me LOVED it so seeing her happy made me happier.

Thanks!

A treasure in Williamsburg. Small menu but every dish we tried, both at dinner and at brunch, was creatively prepared and delicious.
The staff are lovely, very attentive but respectful of space.
We will be back!

More than 50% of the items on the menu were not available because the grill apparently wasn’t working. They wouldn’t even serve the steak tartare because the grill wouldn’t work with the bread that goes with it, even though we mentioned we didn’t need the bread grilled. Also, the garlic butter mussels got 2 ppl of our dinner party incredibly sick after dinner. Definitely avoid this restaurant.

Lovely intimate bistro on one of the last quiet corners in Williamsburg - you could squint and believe you were somewhere in a calm Paris arondissement. 5 stars all around, except 4 for service: not for lack of trying, but for trying too hard...probably because the place is fairly new... We appreciated the promptness and the eager check-ins, but in a soothing place like this sometimes less is more...not a blemish at all, just a suggestion: we think the staff will grow into it... We're so happy to have discovered this little local gem, we'll be back soon and we wholeheartedly recommend it...

Very small space, much better suited for casual/small parties. Food was good, however by 2:30 brunch on a Sunday they were out of basically everything I had hoped to eat, so that was disappointing. Server was not the warmest- we felt as though we were inconveniencing her at every turn. She did, however seem to have all tables, so I did tip full 20% as I have been in service and understand that stress. Cocktails are small and relatively expensive, but overall ok experience.

This place has been a neighborhood "go-to" mine and never disappoints. Authentic French fare and great service from the bartender and owners. Big fan of the lamb shank, pork chop and burger.

I’ve been there few time already, always extremely satisfied by everything. The food is as good as some of the best bistro in France, using high quality and very fresh products. The waiting team is lovely and very pro.
A mandatory stop if you visit or live in Brooklyn!

We really enjoyed La Cafette. We shared the meat and cheese board and it was unusually delicious, particularly well chosen cheeses. Then I had the steak with blue cheese sauce special and DH had the lamb shank. Both really good but the steak won. They had a very friendly wine list and we found a nice red at a good price. I had profiteroles for desert, DH had cheesecake. Win win, always a good conclusion!
