About

In its rustic eatery with wooden accents and distressed walls, Vinegar Hill House serves upscale modern American cuisine with an eclectic vibe. For starters, sample the baby gem lettuce salad with rye croutons, spring peas with hazelnuts and crème fraiche, or the chicken liver mousse with pistachios. Popular entrée options include the cast iron chicken with shallots and sherry jus, gnocchi with ramps and bacon, and curry and mint seasoned scallops with fava beans. To round out your meal, try Vinegar Hill House's pecan sticky buns or the farmstead cheese selection and wash it all down with the house cocktail made with rye, vermouth and grapefruit bitters.

Vinegar Hill House also has a decadent brunch menu, with items like a biscuit sandwich with fried eggs, mortadella and honey and the pear sourdough pancakes.

I have always loved this restaurant and was thrilled when they started accepting reservations on OpenTable. VHH features a great cocktail menu and has a real mixologist behind the bar. The food is fantastic and always pleases. They've changed the presentation on the red wattle pork chop but the preparation is still heavenly and you have to make sure to leave room for guinness cake for dessert. Not the easiest location to get to, but well worth it once you've arrived.

we ate there at monday night, it was good but nothing outstanding. my meat was very good but the beet was burned and not tasty at all.
my friend had a pasta and she liked it very much.
homemade nut icecream was very special but tasty.

its a very cosy and romantic place far from noise. perfect for a date or also for a group.

service was good and friendly

I've been wanting to try Vinegar Hill House for awhile now and finally was able to try it for my birthday not too long ago.

My guest and I ordered the cast iron chicken, the country chop, brussel sprouts and corn bread--all to share. Sadly I liked the sides the best. The entrees were a bit too salty for my taste.

The ambiance of the restaurant was nice. When you walk into the restaurant, you immediately get a homey and comfy feel.

This place is definitely a neighborhood gem. I would certainly go back if I lived or was in the neighborhood. However, I wasn't too wow-ed to make the trip again from Manhattan.

Thanksgiving food was amazing. Traditional menu served family style. One complaint was that it was a bit too expensive. Also, the menu was pre fixe, so the waitress did basically nothing. The one request we had for a bottle of wine was forgotten about for about half an hour. Anyway, we walked away feeling like we had eaten a true American thanksgiving feast. Two pieces of pie and all.

We enjoyed our dinner--pork chops and Arctic char. Well-located for a performance at St Anne's Warehouse

Our usual and much loved drop-in for when we go to St. Ann's . The food is solid, if is not quite as brilliant as it was in the past. The produce is delicious and one--from time to time-- can find a gem or two.

A refreshingly unique menu and really thoughtfully curated wine list. We had such a lovely meal and we were able to try a huge array of menu items - all were incredible! Some dishes were a little over salted, but each dish was as equally inventive yet homey. The atmosphere is really sweet, like a little neighborhood bistro. Each of the waitstaff were lovelier than the last, which can be hard to find in Brooklyn. I would visit VHH again and again!!

Vinegar Hill House never disappoints! Their seasonal menus capture perfectly the tastes and ingredients of the season. No matter the time of year, the staff is convivial and quick to lend a recommendation.

Don't think, just go!
