    Visited on Thanksgiving for the pre-fixe meal. The seating and environment are comfortable and inviting. We were disappointed that our waitperson was not knowledgeable about the wine list or the pre-fixe offerings, other than reading the obvious options printed on the menu. Our turkey entree was not served very hot and the turkey meat was dry. Despite these negatives, it did taste good. Appetizers and desserts were beautiful and delicious. Maybe the shortcomings were the result of a first Thanksgiving in a recently opened restaurant? We will have to return for a 2nd try and order from the usual menu.

    Food was delicious! Portions were sizable (we each took home half our portions), service was attentive (our drinks were never empty) and friendly, and the atmosphere was casual but cool. Looking forward to dining here again soon.

    It is a reasonably nice place for a late night meal. Chef appears to be creative but execution is not great. Burger was overcooked, chicken was warmed up (one expected it to be cooked and not a warmed up left over) but not enough so meal was mediocre at best. Customers were very loud so would not recommend for an intimate dinner - more of a get drunk and be loud place.

    Overall, everything was pretty good. Excellent service. My one and only complaint, my pancakes were severely underdone. The centers were raw and basically batter. Not good, inedible.

    The food here is always great, especially the baked items like the Parker House Rolls. The service was really top notch. We came in with three children under 3 and everyone working there was so accommodating, helpful and patient. But even though they are family friendly, the ambiance here works just as well for a group of friends.

    The quality of Food varied from perfect to a little strange, and burned muffins. Perhaps part of the design. But could be more smooth:-) overall a great experience for europeans:-)

    A delicious surprise, we were impressed by the thoughtful menu and the variety of choices. The scallops were perfect, the pasta was delicious, and the oysters hit the spot. The celery root was a lovely surprise - reminiscent of a perfectly cooked potato latke. Highly recommend for date nights and dinner with friends/family.

    My error...I thought the place would be a bit more upscale than it was...instead...it's really a glorified hotel cafeteria space. Service was mediocre; plates removed before both parties had finished eating. Second course crashing into the first while one of the diners was still eating...dessert coming out while second course still not finished. Chocolate cake was dry...must have been sitting around for a week. Portions...other than for the dry cake...were meager...both the black kale salad and the octopus mezcal (couldn't taste even a hint of mezcal) radiatore were almost child portions. A miss...not to be repeated.

    The dining experience was enjoyable. We had our board meeting in the outside dining area and it was delightful. The server and hostess were extremely accommodating. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who want to experience an enjoyable dining experience. Not to mention the food and dessert was to die for. The cheesecake as heavenly. When visiting Brooklyn, this should be on their list for a wonderful dining experience. A welcome addition to the Boerum Hill community. 5 stars and then some.

    Looking forward to dining here again for the bucatini. It was fantastic! Brussels sprouts were a little bit salty but they were so plentiful they could have been my entrée. The desserts were really good! That strawberry cake is awesome! The services was really good. People were nice in general. It’s a lovely comfortable space to dine. The music was nothing short of outstanding! Super eclectic and played at a volume that was just right collection of songs.

    One of the best avocado toasts around, may even be my favorite. Special shoutout to the hostess with the dark curly hair! Food is always great but the coffee is a little bitter for my taste, that's the only critique I can make. I recommend !

    Really cute new place! Love that it opened up in our neighborhood. The prices are moderate and there are lots of solid brunch options on the menu. They do need to tighten up some things: it was hard to find a server when we needed one, but when they did come around they were awesome. Also...the bathrooms were completely out of toilet paper by 1pm/would not flush??? Other than that, gorgeous lobby and cute location, will definitely return again.

    I wanted to love this so much as it’s a great addition to the neighborhood, but the service really was not good. We waited so long for someone to even acknowledge that we had sat at the table, and then everything after that was just slow. For what we paid to eat there, I would have expected better.
