    I wanted to try this Pop-up Vegan restaurant before it closed for the summer - the food and service were excellent. I highly commend this place and look forward to having a meal - at their next incarnation .

    Yes- I would recommend Sans to a friend. I already have. I really wanted to try the restaurant before the closing in less than a week. The food was spectacular. Victoria and Charley- our two servers were friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Just for clarification- I am a carnivore... Looking forward to see the next incarnation of Sans 1.0!

    It is a pity this is a pop up. I think they said their final night in this location is the end of July so if you have not already, do GO. Fab food, great waitress and just a wonderful addition to this area. If the management is reading this, please stay in Brooklyn!

    Absolutely fabulous. We wish Sans were staying in Carroll Gardens. We have been twice in 2 weeks and will go back as often as we can. The food is carefully, lovingly prepared. It’s inventive without being self conscious. And most importantly it’s delicious. The service is great- super friendly and helpful. The decor is lovely. I only wish the AC were not so high. I brought a sweater both times and left pretty chilly. But already making a plan to go back! Bravo.

    I live down the street from Sans and gratefully tried it because of Open Table reviews. It was outstanding and is now my place for celebratory dining. Everything is delicious. I had the caviar and rice and legumes. My husband had the flatbread and pasta. All of the dishes were amazing. Try it, you will love this fine dining without pretension.

    This is one of the best vegetarian restaurant in nyc area! Every dish is creative and full of flavor. His burger is one of the best veggie burger! And the caviar with blinis is so addicting. The chef spends enormous time and effort to test and create recipes that everyone should try. This is how fine dining vegetarian food should be. I wish him all the success and hope he finds a great location after the one year pop up is done in September at this location!

I will absolutely be watching and following this chef wherever he or she goes after this year residency. Planning on coming back for brunch next weekend - that’s how good it was!

    We had a wonderful brunch here, and the food was stunningly delicious and gorgeously presented. Our favorites were the Smashed Potatoes, Warm Rolls with Tomato Seed Butter, the Avocado Benedict, and the Burger. And the Avocado Tempura Tacos and the Asparagus. Oh, and the Free Form Donuts. So everything we ordered was fantastic. The service and vibe is confusing. We did know it was truly a residency and an experiment and could not figure out why there weren’t more tables and more customer. Had the service been more focused on revenue-generation, we would have had at least one other round of drinks. The staff was warm and welcoming but sloooooow. The kitchen was running at a very reasonable pace.

    Victoria our server was excellent. She knew the dishes and explained them in detail. The food was exquisite - new vegan flavors and textures for us. The burger was amazing - as meaty and tasty as the best beef burger I’ve ever had! Their homemade ketchup - delicious! Rice and beans - excellent. Flatbread was so tasty - the dehydrated tofu was so tangy - the best parmesan equivalent we have ever had! The asparagus with the hollandaise sauce was outstanding - tasty and light! Why not five stars: 1) portion size for the price - we shared 4 dishes and were still hungry - we were ready to re-order something and we’re trying to decide which one as they were all so good but did not because of #2. 2) there was a looooong time between dishes. We were the first to arrive and the restaurant was empty at 6 PM. We ordered all four dishes to start but we waited 10 - 20 minutes after finishing a dish before the next one was served . We would have ordered another burger or flatbread but did not want to wait 15-20 minutes.

    The potential for Sans is obvious, but the reality fell really short. Inattentive staff even when the place was essentially empty, overpriced everything and the stingiest $16 glass of wine you ever did see. We live in Brooklyn so we’re hoping to have a Dirt Candy or Nix in walking distance. Sans has a long way to go.

    Food, drinks and service were almost uniformly wonderful. However, a request to exclude peanuts from one of our dishes was not heeded and we had to wait a significant period before the dish was replaced.

    My wife Lois and I ate here a few days ago with our friends Jonathan and Rachel. This time I did not enjoy the brussel sprout dish as much as I did the last time I tried it, but I'm being fussy, because it was still good, as were all the dishes we shared. The waiter service by our primary server Charlie was, as always, fantastic, and his colleague Christian was helpful too. The music was not too loud and the bathroom was clean and well maintained.
