    I walked in at 10pm with my date and we were given a corner booth; romance! The mussels and scallops are both divine. The "hippie" music is a wink amidst the gastropub setting.

    Finally find a place in Brooklyn Heights that makes French Toast right. Add bacon if you're in an adventure mood, won't regret.

    Great neighborhood restaurant. Fave pick is the mussels and frites. Good selection of beer, wine and cocktails. Brunch is good, but aim to get there just as they open or late to beat crowds.

    one of my favorite burgers in the city. amazing brunch in a tucked away spot of the neighborhood. try mix of baby lettuce, jacks burger and royal eggs

    The wall of antique clocks is surprisingly relaxing, watching them tick on, unaware of their age, as you drink, fully aware of yours. If you need a distraction, go for the smoked gouda mac ‘n cheese.

    Finally a chef who knows where the effort should be made to make a decent omelette, although there is still room for improvement. Pork sausage patties are quite delicious too.

    when I first tasted the Ricotta & Butternut Squash Ravioli, I was speechless, and maybe a little teary eyed. And while the portion is not huge, it is worth the $11. Read more

    moules frites are reliably satisfying and delicate: mussels served in a ginger-infused broth, fries enriched by flavors of lemon and parsley. good neighborhood spot. their old fashioned deserves kudos

    Food actually wasn't that great, but liked the atmosphere and location enough to heart it. The wine/oyster bar attached to the restaurant is worth a visit for a drink.

    This upscale pub is as beloved for the welcoming vibe and quirky vintage clock fixtures as it’s new American fare and craft cocktail menu.

    Nice neighborhood place ... Out if the way. Food was solid but with prices could have had a meal in Manhattan

    Mac and cheese was perfect. If you want a hearty meal, get the hanger steak or the pork chop. Semi casual place, not overly expensive.

    Mac and cheese. Brussel sprouts. 1862 cocktail is sweet, then spicy. One of the best happy hours, and happens every day.

    much fancier than the name leads you to believe. i had a pancetta cheesecake and it was fucking good. service was on point/the waiter was kinda hot?
