    The food was fantastic - $1 oysters are hard to pass up! Beautiful charcuterie platters, steak frites, salmon cooked rare as requested. Wonderful cocktails! We were in transit and were 45 minutes late (party of 7)-they were very nicely accommodating, and there was no rushing us out! Great choice in Bushwick!

    Just happened to be in Brooklyn waiting for my kids to enjoy a concert at Brooklyn Steel. This came up on Open Table because the one I found by googling 'great cafes in Brooklyn' had no spots. Thanks Open Table! This was perfect.

    We had a great New Years Eve dinner here. Their pre fixed 5 course dinner menu was overall very good. We had to sit outside in an enclosed glass patio which thankfully was heated. Service was excellent. Cute, quaint little restaurant in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn.

    Went with out of town relatives to show them Brooklyn and it got raves. Escargot was the winner of the appetizers and steak frites, lamb, duck, and mussels were all favorites (but my lamb was the winner.) Dessert was amazing--the gelato/sorbets were deeply flavored and intense. Definitely a winner!

    Informal and friendly spot. Relaxed atmosphere, helpful servers with French accent and unbeatable $1 oysters during happy hour. The snails were probably the best I have ever had. Would like to come back again for more!

    Friendly and attentive staff. Delicious oysters and desert. We loved the vegetable lasagna, but my husband was a little disappointed with the roast duck and found the sauce to be a bit too greasy. Probably picked wrong menu item because the rest was yummy. It was lively place but not noisy - a rare combination.

    Excellent service. Every server that came by was extremely friendly and attentive. We sat outside and their patio is super cute and cozy. Would be a great date night spot. Food was also great- 3 of us shared the meat and cheese board as an appetizer, a burger, gnocchi, and mushroom pesto pasta. All were fantastic!

    Warm and charming oasis on edgy Knickerbocker St. in Bushwick. We were seated in the "garden" in the back in the middle of February - and it was great! It's enclosed (obviously) and the floor is gravel. The main area is very lively, charming, and very different in feel, but both dining areas are wonderful. Food is good and a god value, but the kitchen is not terribly efficient. Took us over an hour to get the food and one of the dishes came a full 10 minutes after everyone else was served. Still, we were enjoying the ambience and each other's company so all good!

    Came here for Valentine's Day, have been before. Excellent food, kitchen was a little slow but they more than made up for it by bringing a couple of comped glasses of champagne. Love their steak frites, burger is also great (but it's pretty good French food, so maybe branch out a little!)

    A favorite date spot of ours . Dollar oysters are always fresh, with an awesome variety to choose from. The es cargo is absolutely fantastic and a special treat for us. Service is consistent without being in your face. It's got a classic feel - a small French bistro with lots of gems on the menu.

    Not a great experience at Mominette. Not until after we dined at Mominette did friends tell us "They've really gone downhill in the last two years" and "they have rats". Now we see why. FOOD We ordered mussels, the pork special, a side of brussel sprouts and the Apple Tart Tartan. The Pork special was absolutely delicious, tender perfection. The mussels were advertised "w/ roasted tomatoes". The entire pot had probably a 1/4 of a tomato in it. They were flavorless and soaked in butter. French fries were obviously good. And the crust on the Tart Tartan was undercooked, apples were good however. SERVICE Server forgot our brussel sprouts, which we had to remind him of. When dinner ended he seemed to push dessert on us to say "I've got you covered for messing up before". However he forgot to tell us the dessert special. My girlfriend who is a baker spotted the Apple Tart Tartan at a neighbor table and had to ask him about it, which he then informed us of. When the bill arrived, nothing was compensated or excused. Meaning he clearly didn't tell management of the mess up. OVERALL Over priced, flavorless food, unapologetic wait staff, cool vibe. Not worth the hype.
