Watty and Meg is friendly, low key and delightful. We had a cozy, delicious brunch. The huevos rancheros was excellent...and that whole grain bread with fig jam is worth a trip to carroll gardens. The decor is attractive; you feel like you are in a wood-lined library. We will definitely return on our next trip to Brooklyn!

We had not been to Watty & Meg in a while, and tend to overlook it when deciding where to go in the neighborhood. But we decided to go recently and the food and service were excellent. We will definitely go more often. The menu is not extensive, but it is creative enough. We had the steak frites and a halibut that was a special; both were delicious! Our waiter was particularly good and had just the right balance of attention and leaving us to enjoy each other's company.

I love this restaurant and have been going for many years. It’s a small thing but charging four dollars for soda water in a tiny glass irritates me enough to stop going there.

Had a fab night . We are from the UK on our honeymoon, and found this great place whilst out walking. Service was exceptional, and we were given free dessert and coffee by our waiter, they didn't even know we were celebrating getting married. He was a great guy. We would highly recommend Watty and Megs the food was amazing. We'll probably go again before the end of of stay.

This is one of those places we enjoy it every time we go. We enjoy it with friends, we enjoy it with our kids, we enjoy it when we just hang out at the bar, and the service is always fantastic.
I have been to several events in their back area and they have been fantastic as well.

The music was too loud, causing each customer to raise their voices unnecessarily. We were three people and could barely hear one other at the table. The waitstaff was also clearly overwhelmed - We sat for over 30 minutes before our food order was taken (at which point they'd run out of one of the specials...) Each time plates of food were bused to us the lack of communication among staff was glaring. Our waiter was friendly enough, but made very apparent that he was in a constant hurry. He never stayed at our table for longer than was absolutely necessary and made us feel insignificant, rushing our questions and 'checking in' on us while en route to his next task.

Brunch was great. The kale and quinoa salad is loaded with flavor and texture; the pancakes are rich and nutty. Good, classic burger and fries too. Drinks are solid and the staff is tolerant (of the many kids who turn up) and much more attentive than in years past. Place has really improved in the last year or so. Highly recommended as an elevated neighborhood go-to.

Loved it! Food was great, staff was very nice; and for a Friday night it was very very calm; now I came right before closing so that may be the reason but I love calm/non-packed places and in NY it feels impossible to find this type of place (great food and quiet)

This corner place in Cobble Hill looks like a comfy bar but the food is well above what one would find in any bar. And the veggie options are as interesting as the meat options! Will definitely return.
