    Every Sunday there is Latino Classical music with percussion. Wednesdays they bring in the beautiful and amazing Stephen for classical French guitar. Don't miss out on this local gem.

    It’s always a fun time with some live music, a French bistro, and a great atmosphere. Make it even better by getting the classic, plump Les Moules Frites soaked in extremely flavorful tomato sauce.

    My favorite dinner spot in Cobble Hill. You can't go wrong with a goat cheese salad and $5 side of mushroom risotto. Their flourless chocolate cake is also to die for if you have a sweet tooth!

    Tabac is my new obsession. I've passed it many times for CLl and CC, but I came for dinner with a friend. She had the steak frites & I had the tuna steak w/ ratatouille and definitely had a foodgasm

    A stable neighborhood spot--always our go to. Food is good, predictable, warm and cozy. Live music is always lovely. Prices have increased recently 😪 thus is the life of a cobble hill restaurant.

    Great food and service. Love music can be Lloyd but they have out door seating and seating way in the back where the music didn't sound as loud. Great place either way. Get the mussels.

    "The Baked Clams with ricard, butter, and parsley sauce here is delicious, but also try the Salmon Brochetter with peppercorn sauce.

    Fantastic french bistro / bar food. Perfect late night place as there's people and wine flowing until really late. Great wine selection and places to sit outside when its nice out.

    By far the most lively place on a Monday at 8pm- live music, open doors and windows... Awesome atmosphere and the food looks great. Prices are very competitive. Would make a great date!

    An ideal place to soak up Cobble Hill's considerable French flavor. Bar Tabac serves a robust selection of French wines and dishes.

    The eggs Benedict and Florentine are poached to perfection, but the headliner is Eggs Bar Tabac: two over easy served atop a bowl of baked ratatouille. All egg dishes are $9.95. Read more

    Walked into this place on a whim and it didn't disappoint. Blake the bartender is a really cool and professional guy. I didn't eat anything but the beers are cold and tasty. Def worth going again.

    Brooklyn (Cobble Hill) – no more than $6 for morning cocktails and range of $10 – $16 for your meal. Try the appetizers.. $6 for 1 or $24.95 for 5 different apps

    Awesome for a late night bite. They have bistro bites for $6 and a massive piles of moules frite for $15. You won't leave hungry or with an empty wallet.

    Good French onion soup, not so great Nicoise salad, and great steak frites with peppercorn sauce. Live music and outdoor seating are a nice addition.

    Salmon and couscous=awesome, muscles and fries=awesome plus traditional French. Outdoor seating-be sure to sit facing he street like the Parisians do.

    A staple of Cobble Hill. Come for the Steak Frites (with peppercorn sauce), a Late Night Giant Burger or simply sip a glass of wine and listen to the nightly jazz music.

    Lunch: casual. The salmon is well-presented but sweet & not in a good way. The burger is typical & a bit over-priced. The tuna tartare is terrific! Menu is narrow.

    Instant favorite Great food, great atmosphere. Don't know if everyday is like this, but on Saturdays the music selection includes Bowie, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Röyksopp, etc.

    Popular and open late. Pretty sad wine list and no heat during winter. Pepper steak is ok. Tuna tartar tastes sushi joint inspired. BUT it's The block to be on Bastille day.

    Do yourself a favor and try the Ommegang Witte. It's a medium wheat beer with a citrusy flavor - particularly lemon. It had a crispness to it, and is delicious!

    Bar Tabac has live music evenings Sunday-Thursday -- I guess on the weekends they want that extra bar space for paying customers.Typical music seems to be old-timey toe-tapping jazz, and I think it
