Food happened to be pretty good. But noise level is ridiculously loud! Very unpleasant .
I don’t think they have their stuff in order as our food took very long to come out. The right thing to do would’ve been to give us a little something to eat, and yes we did order an app, but if we didn’t , I would have keeled over from hunger.
In sum, food was good, but won’t be back, as overall it wasn’t a great experience .

The restaurant is small, crowded and deafening. If I were 28 I'd probably be okay with it, but the food was average at best and certainly not good enough to outweigh the ambiance. My entree was salmon with chanterelles, snow peas and buttermilk. The mushrooms were mushy and grey. Not appetizing at all. The bread was great.

Not only is the food and atmosphere amazing, but I can't say enough about the customer service. My party unexpectedly went from 8 people to 4 and they were so nice about it I can not say enough nice things about them. We will be back!

Very good staff and wine list. Food was awful, cold and took forever, and a hint you don't offer complimentary bread and butter when it takes you over an hour and a half to prepare the food and then its cold

This is housed in what was an old dump of a Turkish restaurant. However, they have made it amazingly tasteful. Food was good, staff was wonderful. Place was mobbed and they didn't rush us out. Loved it.

I made a reservation. Prior to arriving the restaurant called to tell us that the kitchen was closing -- why would Open Table then have an available reservation? Our server was super friendly which saved the day and prevented us from leaving negative ratings, however the hostess staff and other staff members were very snobbish and not service oriented or hospitable.

Known about Sauvage for some time and finally made brunch reservations for a date. Food was cold and the Bloody Mary’s from the bar were thin in tomato juice. Space was pleasant and service was good.

Everyone there was SO great and SO accommodating for our small baby shower. The food was SO GREAT. The burger is to die for, as is the almond french toast. Everything surpassed our expectations and even the server's outfits were on brand and adorable.

Poached eggs were undercooked and cold. Other plates weren't hot as well. It was busy, but no excuse.

The service was excellent from the moment we walked in. They were very accommodating and seated us early. When they saw me spill some food on myself they rushed right over with club soda and a towel. The burger, octopus, salmon, and salad were all spectacular and so were the cocktails. We highly recommend and can’t wait to go back.

The place is very nice. We ordered avocado toasts but unfortunately they were burnt... Fries were really good. They also didn’t have any pastries on the menu..
I also ordered a tea and 20 min later a server came to tell me they didn’t have the kind I ordered, I just wished they would have told me earlier..
Overall a bit disappointed by the experience as I was really looking forward to try this place.

I’ve heard great things about Sauvage, but unfortunately it just missed the mark. We felt extremely rushed during service (before ordering, during our meal, and afterward) even though we were nowhere near the second seating time slot on New Years Eve. The vegetables were all undercooked and the short ribs were fatty and difficult to chew. Overall a disappointment for a prix fixed meal.

Food was really good, sauvage breakfast. Amazing sausage! Would go back for the food. However during brunch it was impossibly hot and the sun blinded us, we had to wear sunglasses all of brunch. Would be great if something could be done about that!

A beautiful spot with great food and wine (especially if you're into natural wines). The interior is very cool and gives you a feeling you're in France. The service was good, but maybe a bit too attentive. They would come several times during the meal to ask if we're done eating, etc. Pouring the wine was also not the strength as it dripped everywhere, but then I'd rather pour my own wine anyway. Overall, great place!

Love the french vibe and the food was very good. Did not have a great martini which made me sad but otherwise, their house cocktails were good. Would be a great spot for a date or casual but fancy feeling dinner with friends.

Everything from the drinks to the garnishes was prepared with love at this place. Honestly, the creativity and quality of the food was incredible. I will definitely be coming back, it was worth the money. I had the salmon, my brother had the steak, and my mother had the duck. I tried all three and they were all wonderful! The staff were super friendly and accommodating. Williamsburg tends to be a little overrated, this place is anything but. Highly recommend.

First the positives — the food was really outstanding. We enjoyed really fresh oysters, bread and butter (a cost for this), and a very unusual, excellent cauliflower dish for starters. All our mains, the duck, chicken and monk fish were straight-forward, and delicious. We also really enjoyed our wine choices.

The service was also good except that it took what seemed like forever for each course to arrive. Finally the manager/ owner came to our table and said our entrees would arrive in four minutes (on top of the 45 we had already waited). This would have been fine except my husband had to be home for a conference call and dash home.

I would go back, but in future choose a night when no one has a comittment, even 1 1/2 hours on a Monday night was not enough time to have a relaxed dinner with family.

They have a good brunch selection of food and cocktails. Good for a group with diverse tastes (salads, eggs, burgers, etc). Our server was really nice but messed up one of our orders slightly. I ordered the grain bowl, which honestly wasn't great. I didn't love the sauce the veggies were sauteed in. But the egg sandwich my friend got looked really good!

Food and atmosphere were great but service was horrendous. Our waiter knew the couple at the table next to us and spent our entire meal catching up with them. We wanted to order more food but over 30 minutes went by with us having finished dirty plates on our table so by the time he came over we were done and just wanted to leave. Then the check came and he put a bottle of wine twice the price of our bottle on the bill that we had to correct him of.

Second time to eat here, about 10 months apart (we don't live in NY). Really liked it the first time and wanted to try it again. Just as good as I remembered. Great food - no misses. Two of us had the steak and it was perfect. Pasta was excellent, too. Also great wine! (And they will happily steer you to really good wines that are $50/btl and not $100+. Loved it! Hope I can make it back again.(I really don't hand out 5's lightly.)

Worst service in Brooklyn. Uncoordinated, unresponsive, incorrect orders, unfriendly? You can have it all here. Food is solid, but service was below abysmal.

Coffee took 20 minutes to come out. Food 40 minutes...with a restaurant half full. How does a waitresses not know what Splenda is? Amateur hour across the board. Guess I shouldn't be surprised given it is a sister restaurant of Maison Premiere.
