Sauvage Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
Treated my Bushwick-based host to a lovely dinner at Sauvage. We were able to take the B43 bus almost door-to-door from his house to the restaurant. We shared a wonderful melon appetizer and a delicious cauliflower plate as the first course, followed by Icelandic salmon and an incredibly juicy burger. I love the food and the environment of Sauvage. It's comfortable but can make Tuesday night feel like a special occasion!
Sauvage is a great spot either mid-week for a quick lunch as it gets terrific light in the afternoon or try and drop in with friends and enjoy a few drinks at the elegant bar. The handcrafted cocktails are amazing. Also the space has wonderful warmth while humming along in the evening when its elegantly crafted authentic vibe really shines. The lunch menu is straightforward and moderately priced while the dinner menu is more adventurous-- both menus are beautifully executed. The wine list is carefully considered with plenty of reasonably priced organic and biodynamic gems. Also the staff is quite wine savvy, enthusiastic and passionate. You can do wrong on a Friday or Saturday night seated with your date at a corner banquet watching people while sipping champers or lingering over dessert .
Our table was gross when we got there. The hostess saw it, removed three grains of old bread from the table and that was it. We had to ask the waitress to clean. Which she did without any apologies or offering another table (there were plenty empty tables!).
The appetizers were great. The entrees were pretty good. The service was not so great. Our waiter was a little uppity. And the bar took forever to make drinks--so long that by the time my second drink came we were finished with dinner and I didn't even want a second drink.
I've been walking by Sauvage since I saw the paper up in the windows wondering what it might be ... I finally got around to going with a friend last week and it far exceeded my expectations! As a fan of their other establishment "maison premiere" I expected a lot out of this restaurant, and it met those expectations and managed to surprise and delight me with their flavors.
Their service was excellent. The food was beautifully presented and the flavor combinations were so delicious and unique that I want to go back again and again.
I sat out on the street and it made for some great people watching.
I feel like this place would be good for anything from just a drink to brunch to a date.
It's a perfect spot for all sorts of dining!
This was my first visit to Sauvage and our party of four thoroughly enjoyed it. It is definitely a fun people watching spot if you get a seat facing the window. The food was very good and I really appreciated the service. I was directed to a bottle of wine that was very good and very economical as well. They served us an extra dessert by mistake but all three were outstanding. It was a calm Sunday evening so it was very easy to have a good conversation.
