Once a former garage, the space that now houses The Bedford in Brooklyn was reinvented to offer rustic charm and a sense of casual intimacy. A front area dining room often has full seats during the day and evening hours whereas the bar serves as a great place for beer and cocktail selections at the end of a long day. The Bedford is the place to go for families, friends and couples looking to get out and about. For brunch, try the fried chicken and waffles, yellowfin tuna burger, crisped risotto ball or the soft scrambled eggs. For dinner, check out the black bean and corn tortilla burger, fried chicken tenderloins, grilled pizzette or the hanger steak. When dining at The Bedford, make sure to ask any available blackboard specials available.

    The ambiance and decor was beautiful and cozy. The bottle of Pinot Noir was delicious. I was very impressed with the homemade Burrata appetizer and Free Range Chicken entree. The service was exceptional-cannot believe it’s taken me this long to dine in this hidden gem.

    I had a rather odd experience here, I had booked an available reservation for 5 people but when we showed up for our reservation the host said they were not able to accommodate our reservation because as she put it "OpenTable is not able to keep up with what we have available". As a result, they were not able to sit us in the main dinning area and brought us to the bar area where it was open seating and we had to wait for a group to leave so we could find a table for our whole group. Later to find out that the kitchen was "totally smoked out" as the waitress put it, understandably this is an unforeseen situation for both waitstaff and patron but we were told it would be at least 30 minutes until we could put an order in for food, ultimately leading us to decide to leave. Which was a bummer because I had dined there once before and it was great! Just be cautious when booking a reservation on OpenTable and schlepping over there.

    The service was great. Seated right away with no wait. The food was delicious (We tried the Mac-N-Cheese Burger) and it didn't take long. The cocktails were different but worth it.

    We were there to visit our daughter on her birthday and we were pleasantly surprised at the service, food quality and variety. Wine was perfect. Everything came out perfectly cooked and hot. All portions were appropriate. Cost was reasonable. I'd go back.

    Low-key place for a Saturday night but really solid dishes. Would definitely recommend the Brussels sprouts appetizer. Sadly imperfect as it was clear either the kitchen was servicing the patio first or the waitress forgot to put in our order for a good hour (or both).

    I'd give less than one star if I could..this had to be one of my worst restaurant experiences ever. Ordered thier "infamous" 🙄 Mac and cheese burger WELL DONE and ended up receiving it raw... sent it back.. received the same damn burger that I had cut in half with just a new bun not even fully cooked!!! Called the manager over and his excuse was.. "we are too busy"... such a POOR excuse and not the way to treat your customer....we got up and left... disappointed and upset... would never come here again

    Had family in town and The Bedford was the perfect spot to take them. Selection was well-rounded and everything was pretty tasty. Salads could use an upgrade (nothing special, quite bland), but everything else made for an enchanted evening. Great service.

    This place was just ok. The food was mediocre and the ambiance was good. The food was definitely more of an Instagram fad than actually good. Will not be returning.

    The food was very sub par. We ordered fish and chips and the fish tasted disgusting! We returned it for chicken fingers and they were over cooked. The waitress didn't seem to care that we were there and even though she only had two tables did not give us much attention at all. Ambiance was cute, but there are a lot of other cute places in Williamsburg with much better food! Will not go back and wouldn't recommend it!

    Creative, tasty cuisine which surprised us and was well prepared. We recommend brussel sprouts and the risotto balls - tasted like original sicilian food. Also Nice cocktails - good place to Start a Night in Brooklyn.

    They were out of several of the dinner specials and half our group had to order alternative dishes. The food was good overall, but some dishes were very salty. The ambiance is warm and cozy.

    The brunch menu (avocado toast, scrambled eggs, chicken/waffles, perfect latte) was startinglingly fresh and delicious. But....I wish they would renovate--as the atmosphere is run down and the industrial/scented cleaners in the air were not appetizing.

    Dined with friends from out of town recently, we all loved our experience at the Bedford. The space is charming and the service can't be beat - really friendly. Everything we ordered was great, too: French Onion Soup, Oysters (try the Charleston style, delicious!), Organic Kielbasa, Fish and Chips, Whole Trout, Creme Brulee and Donuts. We'll be back.

    Perhaps the entire restaurant was short staffed the night we dined? Our waitress needed a busboy or a second waiter. She was capable and did the best she could to provide optimal service but no one except her cleared our plates and helped with the little things (water, extra silverware, plates/napkins). Our main course arrived a least an hour after the appetizers... dessert took an additional 45 after the main course was cleared. The food was delicious but the overall experience (from an operational standpoint) wasn't worth the expense of the meal.
