    We had a small birthday get together, and the food was phenomenal. The wine was great. The only small complaint is as that for prices of the filet mignon, that’s the barely gave a small medallion of meat for the priciest item on the menu. Every other portion size was perfect, but the steak wasn’t really filling for the 2 in our party that ordered it. That being said, it was still amazing and we will definitely return!

    We were 3, and did a wide array of appetizers and wine. Most of the dishes were wonderful. And would have gone with a 5 but that would be perfection and the grilled octopus left a little to be desired. The flavor was very good but the thickness of the tentacles prohibited uniform grilling. Either smaller tentacles or splitting the large one would have helped. The zucchini crepes were fabulous and the shrimp was very tasty with a sauce that craved dipping, and dip we did. Creamed mushrooms were a treasure. The salmon tartar was very good but not outstanding. The Levant salad was bright and fresh but seemed to be missing it’s dressing. Our wine was amazing (Cabernet), the coffee perfect and the blueberry Bellini was a gracious gift that will be long remembered. Looking forward to visiting again and trying the entrees.

    It was very expensive for the size of the portions. The salmon was bland. The cauliflower purée was cold. The ink pasta was awful. We waited a long time for our food and the check. We will not be back.

    The service is excellent, they are lovely people. It was a Saturday night so it was quite loud. The food was disappointing. We ordered the Brussels sprouts for appetizer, which were almost raw. The salad was fine. The sea bass is ok and the steak frites is very good.

    Food is excellent, authentic French. The most tasty, tender coq vin, melt in your mouth beef cheeks. Fresh tartar. Everything from start to finish was perfectly cooked. Straight from France. Friends were very impressed. Drinks excellent and decent value.

    The service was good and we liked the feel of the place. The frisee salad was good (a bit vinegary for my taste but ingredients were excellent). But one of our party was really looking forward to the steak and frites -- and especially the frites. The steak was ok, but the "frites" were simply not frites. They tasted like frozen fries that had been deep fried. Big, soft. Kind of like Denny's. Definitely not frites. The gravy that came with the steak didn't add anything either. Tasted like plain gravy and not house made. Would have been much better with a peppercorn sauce. But that wouldn't have saved the dish - the fries were just very disappointed. And so that really put us off.

    The waitstaff was warm, attentive and solicitous without being intrusive. We mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, and received unexpected prosecco aperitifs in congratulations. The food came quickly and was generally excellent: mussels in a delicate and delightful broth, smoked eggplant spiced subtly, (where do they get those fabulous bread slices?) crisp, NOT oily, enormous (and slightly fishy-tasting) frog's legs to start. Coq au vin tasty, tender, melt-in-your mouth, with vegetables that preserved their integrity; steak tender and more flavorful than I usually associate with filet mignon. Desserts were on the same level: a phenomenal chestnut and fig mousse, and an equally superb chocolate mousse. Even the creme brulee, inexplicably served cold, was good enough. The house drinks were perfect accompaniments.

    Smith Street in Brooklyn is doing admirably competing with Williamsburg. And Levant does its part offering a more mainstream french option to the eclectic mix in the neighborhood. Although promising, the menu falls short on the execution however. The night we were there the frisee salad included no frisee. The beef bourguignon was more akin to American pot roast than the true french dish. Salmon was bland. On the plus side, the setting is nice and the staff very friendly. The wine list, although limited, was of solid quality and value.

    Cute restaurant with very very good food. It was cooked to perfection and I’d have to say it is the best French food that I’ve had in Beooklyn and I’ve tried a lot of them (and even better than many in France). Very reasonable prices for the excellent quality of food. Recommended and will return.

    Everyone is short staffed so you have to take that into consideration, but the food didn't come out as we ordered and the bacon/drip coffee is pretty bad. The staff did try really hard to make it up to us so I'd give it another try but need to be honest that they've got some work to do to live up to what I thought would be a good brunch spot.
