    The real piece de resistance at this French bistro was the pancakes. Oh, those pancakes! They were crispy on the outside, melt-in-your-mouth fluffy on the inside, and don't even need the syrup. Read more

    Get a Bloody Mary and get something with fries to go with it. It's a popular spot for brunch, but the space is huge so you likely won't have to wait for too long.

    If lobster bisque is on the menu, ORDER IT. You'll want to bathe in it. You'll want to spend long romantic candlelit evenings with it. You'll want to take it home and introduce it to your family.

    This Williamsburg eatery is all French bistro dinner business out front, but in the back, Le Barricou boasts a lovely little space with a bar, small tables and a wood-burning fireplace. Read more

    Definitely share an order of pancakes and try their Bloody Mary - yum. (Their other brunch options are also just as delicious!)

    The pancakes were hugeee. Definitely enough for two people. We also ordered the croque monsieur and it was way too much food for two. That food was very satisfying. Amazing cocktail menu as well!

    The food is amazing and the cocktails are good too. If you're here for brunch, get the duck confit hash! The only downside was that the hostess was incompetent and wasn't very nice...

    Cool place. Nice ambiance and good breakfast dishes. Esprcially the savoury dishes are great. We also tried the pancakes: n they're huge portions, but come with relatively few berries.

    Honestly the best French food I have had in the city. Sit at the bar and order as much food as you can. Go early, 7ish. Then check out the back room with a fireplace.

    Some of the best value brunch in Williamsburg with some of the best vibes, there is always a wait at Le Barricou, and it is always worth it. The cuisine is French, so obviously it is buttery & great. Read more

    A smart man once said,"pancakes are my new girlfriend",and that man is completely right. As a 6' 4" 220lb man, I had tough time finishing these. Not only that. But this place is super affordable.

    Pancakes take 30 minutes, but they're worth the wait. Huge serving with some kind of berry butter. Pancake coma to follow.

    I love this place, always will. Great ambience, delicious food, personal nostalgia... But they are getting cheaper and cheaper in their food portions, a teaspoon of hollandaise sauce does not cut it!

    One of the best brunches near by! Definitely make a reservation on OpenTable if possible. Often long weekend waits. Classic french dishes, amazing cocktails... Walkable, but worth a ~$6 uber ride!

    Best Croque Madame I've ever had!!! We ordered a plate of pancakes for 4 people and we still left one of them! They're huge! Definitely made to share! One of the best brunch I've ever had!!! :)

    Some of the best food I've had in this city. Everything was amazing. Highly recommend the pork belly, coq au vin, and chocolate cake! So happy to have such amazing food in my neighborhood!

    Stop by for French brunch classics executed to perfection (at a reasonable price!). Combine that with a killer Bloody Mary and a cozy, comfortable vibe - you really can't go wrong.

    The Bitches say: A. Great ambiance for brunch, to-die-for pancakes, and a killer Bloody Mary all at an affordable price. We just wish the service wasn’t so overburdened. Read more

    Great French style simple comfort food. The chicken burger was DELICIOUS: melted Camembert on a juicy piece of chicken in brioched burger buns.

    Great place for brunch, spacious and well decorated. The Duck confit will blow your senses, no mistake about this, and juices are actually fresh squeezed, something I always appreciate

    Good service! Try the escargots, they are sooo good! Same for the lamb. Just DON'T eat a burger here please (!), they're good but it's a french restaurant, not an American ;) !

    The potatoes that come with the eggs Norwegian are out of this world - soft and flavorful on the inside and crispy on the outside.

    The pâté sandwich was on point! Pancakes take about 45 min. They're good, but dense and super filling. I recommend getting another as a main and sharing the pancakes with your table.

    PANCAKES. I recommend ordering one for the table and sharing because it is heavier than your avg pancake. Also eat while piping hot!

    The mussels selection is amazing and so delightfully tasty. Try the mould provencial (my personal favorite) with a glass of single malt scotch whiskey (LAPHROAIG) and you'll be steps away from heaven!

    Prepare to wait for brunch on Sunday. Totally worth it. The eggs Benedict were cooked perfectly and the salad went well with it. The bloody Marys are EXCELLENT!!!

    The new chef "Soto" is banging. Everything is a lot better (Barricou had always been good). Lots of pallets "orgasm"! The creme brûlée is excellent. Everything is more refined, better quality! <3

    Pancakes are heavenly and huge. The Norwegian was very good and so was the Duck Confeti. Worth the wait in line.

    Brunch here. Order the pancakes right when you sit down since they take about an hour. Duck confit hash is 🔥.

    The Baked pancakes are amazing and not to be missed. If you're a fan of bloody Mary's try their version which includes a shrimp cocktail.

    The bone marrow and liver pâté are a must for dinners. For brunch get the duck confit hash. Don't overload on the bread while you're waiting.

    Get the lamb! Back really opens up and is very cute. Oysters were very fresh. Pork chop was good as well, but the lamb was def the winner.

    Had no trouble getting a table for brunch at 3. The Eggs Norwegian were perfectly poached and the home fries had a remarkable crust. Small portions, but very well-prepared.
