Loosie's Kitchen is a contemporary take on diverse American home cooking traditions, blessed with a lil’ bit of Brooklyn swagger. Borrowing from his roots as a NYC-raised Asian American, Chef Henry interprets new American home cooking through a multi-culturural lens. Constantly playing and infusing seasonal produce into comforting classics, the kitchen & cafe is a home away from home for our regulars and locals.

Ambiance was great, very cute place but the food was terrible and very underwhelming. Ordered a burger and it was just a charred patty with an American singles cheese slice on top. Boyfriend had the fried chicken and wasn’t impressed that either.

cannot recommend this spot enough!! found it on the instagram of one of my favorite bloggers and the pics looked so tempting i had to go!! it was SUCH a perk that reservations were available as well, as a lot of brooklyn brunch spots don’t do them. the ambiance and decor of this place couldn’t be cuter too. i genuinely had the best french toast of my life, and i wanted to be best friends with our waitress and hostess bc they were so sweet and nice. the prices were exactly what i expected for brunch in ny and totally worth it to me. plus free coffee and tea refills! was only in bklyn for the weekend but will definitely be heading back to this spot next time :~)

My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The best is that you can take your time, you feel welcomed (which is unsual for NY) and the food is delicate ! (The only tiny thing that the entrees were not super warm otherwise 5 stars ) !

Some of the food was pretty good, but for the most part it was underwhelming. Probably better off a cocktail and snack when the weather is nice and you can take advantage of their outdoor space.

Loosie’s is a very cute place. I was very excited to come here after following it on social media. The food was good and decently priced. The drinks were delicious. A bit on the expensive side, but that’s Brooklyn. My biggest disappointment was the seating. I made a reservation over a month in advance. Now, I understand that this isn’t a large venue, but our group was seated next to the door in a relatively dark space. I would have wished they would put the reservations in the bright colorful space. All-in-all, I would go back and would recommend. Maybe just leave a not on the reservation next time.

I made a reservation for brunch to celebrate my friend getting married. I was there with 4 other ladies. We waited almost an hour and a half for our food and only 4 of us got our meals and the 5th got hers after we had already finished ours. Our server never explained or apologized for the long wait and on top of it all our food wasn’t that good. I ordered the fish sandwich which was the size of a nugget. The server did take off 2 dishes off the bill, but we still left hungry and disappointed. I spoke to the Manager who was apologetic and took down my email, so we’ll see how this gets resolved. For now, the five of us will not be coming back.

Loosie's has a super chill vibe. You feel like you are eating in a greenhouse or a library depending on where you sit. The food is amazing, but the portions aren't huge. I would recommend ordering a few "mains" then a bunch of sides do share at the table.

Loved the decor. Chicken and waffles were a delight. I really enjoyed my birhday brunch. Cool staff, beautiful & artsy vibe make great Instagram photos. I will definitely have to return and dine at the cafe area as well. My friends were impressed with my choice. Overall it was a great afternoon. I felt like I was on an island... thanks Loosie’s

When you walk in, you immediately are in a bar. Live jazz was a nice touch.

However, nobody was there to greet me which seemed a little odd. I went up to the bartender to tell him I was there for dinner.

A server popped out and lead us through some backdoors to the restaurant. Think: Reverse SpeakEasy. Having no host added to the allure. So not necessarily a bad thing for me.

There were only about 12-15 items on the menu. So ordering was easy. Classic Louisiana style fare isn't something I get everyday and each plate that came to the table was so fun to eat.

My tastebuds lit up like Mardi Gras. Love the shared plates. We had one thing from each section of the menu, wine, and a bottle of sparkling water. The bill was around $85. That's just so awesome.

Server was great. Never got his name but he had a southern draw. Great guy. He gets 5 stars for sure!

We'll be back.

I didn’t want to give this place all 5 stars because that seems suspicious, but Loosie’s was honestly THAT amazing. Easy going vibe, beautiful setting, 1000% delicious food and cocktails. (I’m going to be dreaming about those chicken and waffles for the rest of my life, I think.) I was in Brooklyn to visit my sister (I’m from Chicago), and even though I just got back home from my trip, I’m already thinking about the next time I can travel back to New York to eat at this place again. Keep up the good work! And please consider expanding to Chicago!

Went here for a mother’s brunch. It was amazing! It is a smaller place so the menu is small, but I always look beforehand anyway. Everything we had was great. Their guacamole with fried plantains was incredible!!

I love Loosie's! It is so cute and cosy, feel very comfortable. The food we had were all delicious and stuff are very friendly, they make good cocktails too. We had famous fried chicken, grilled fish, russell sprout, avocado & salmon with chips, they were all really amazing. The bar next door is fun and good music too, it is small hip place to go.

Loosie's Food was good, specifically the Charred Broccolini, the cauliflower and the Branzino. Service was mediocre. Our reservation wasn't in their system and after showing them our confirmed open table reservation were were told that we were in luck because their last 2-top for the night was open. Even though this didn't feel very welcoming or hospitable, we continued with our night. There were some ants on the floor and brick wall near our table which was unpleasant. Overall, the food was good but the staff there could be better at service and hospitality. We will not be rushing back.
