    Love this place - reminds me of Portland. Every dish was amazing - had bay scallops, polenta, pasta with lamb bacon, and spiced sausage. Great biodynamic wine list and cocktails.

    Start with the bread and have them halvsies on the 2 butters. Next- Shishito peppers and blade steak. Finish on the chocolate ganache with puffed, caramelized rice (like sugar smacks cereal)

    Dishes were small portions with great presentation! Got squid, duck rillettes, agnolotti, ribeye steak and chocolate cake. All were very good and enjoyed my birthday here!

    Order new American plates (fresh-pressed tofu with sous vide pumpkin and smoked tomato, house-made cavatelli with a trotter ragù) while hanging in the backyard garden when it's nice out. Read more

    Love the pines, food is so inventive. Worth it cause I couldn't make anything on this menu at home. Try the nochera cocktail-smokey, campfire whiskey, mezcal, and amaro. It's like a witches brew...

    The menu is decidedly ambitious with an Italian bent (think cavatelli with duck heart) with lots of interesting seasonal salads and antipasti. Read more

    Fireplace outside is perfect for fall/ winter especially if you have smokers w/ you. Prix fixe/chef's choice, less amazing. Bone marrow was group fave, homemade pasta/ fish main course close seconds

    The Backyard – only open from 6-10 on Fridays and 3-10 on the weekends – has us swooning. We’re crushing hard on the Kielbasa, Lamb Taco, & Beef Jerky. And, yes, we’ll have another Negroni Popsicle!

    The chef at the Pines is Angelo Romano, who used to cook at Roberta’s, the pizzeria that opened on a desolate Bushwick block in 2008 and is now a favorite of the Clintons and Kirsten Dunst.

    Squid starter, pork main, and panna cotta dessert. One of the best meals I've had... Ever

    sous-vide cooked 30oz ribeye is incredible. You may need to call ahead to order. Other highlights: fluke, squid, cabbage and duck breast

    This place is amazing and low-key. I still have fantasies about their fennel soup and snap peas.

    Foie Gras, Poached Lobster and Wagyu Steak! Wish I could tell you more but chef's menu chgs seasonally. Everything was fantastic!

    Great staff, cocktails, wine and food. Inventive dishes but everything from cheese plate to raisin gelato dessert was great.

    Brunch menu is minimal but does the job. Would absolutely pick the steak and eggs over the poached eggs. And the cinnamon toast is a nice treat.

    There is only one restaurant you need to know in New York. And it is this one. Chef John Pioarkoff's dishes are unpretentiously mindblowing.

    The salads were simple to a fault, but our entrees were terrific. Shortribs prepared almost like pork belly and a delicious trotter pasta.

    The Baked Apple cocktail tastes like what bong water would taste like if bong water were delicious. Order it and you'll get what I mean...bro.

    If a flan had sex with a panna cotta, the Birch Beer pie by Four and Twenty Blackbirds would be the result.

    Very inventive. They serve and accentuate herb flavors in food in a way I've never tasted before.

    A chef-driven seasonally-minded restaurant that ups the food options in the Gowanus considerably.

    The food isn't bad and it's work trying once if you are a hardcore foodie. menu is complicated and the ingredients are somewhat pretentious. We had to look up most of them, and I went with chefs.

    Attitude is humble and approachable, food forward thinking and sumptuous, and the portions healthy.

    Perhaps The Pines is great for Gowanus, but we found it lacking. My borsa vuota was bland, one of the cheeses on the cheese plate was bland. Plus, we felt a little nauseous for hours after the meal.

    Very interesting flavors but a tad over-priced. Go for everything seafood though!

    The epitome of overpriced pretentious portlandia-BS in Brooklyn. The tiny portions were delicious and interesting, but alas, I left hungry and felt ripped off. Couldn't they at least get comfy chairs?

    If you're reading other tips for the Pines, take the bad one with a shovel of salt. Some mistake simplicity for lack of attention to detail.

    Super cute interior. Attractive Friendly Staff. Drinks sound more impressive on paper than in execution. Way over priced. Almost inedibly salty. Components of the dishes are not well edited.

    Stay away - this place gives a bad name to Brooklyn culinary. Every dish we had was average & under. Basic staples like pasta or chicken were ill prepared. Decaying industrial decor is not enough.
