    It's the perfect upscale but not stuffy date dinner. Menu often changes, but we loved the lamb porchetta, carrot crepes, trout, and chawanmushi. Tasty cocktails, too; enjoy them in the big backyard.

    The quirky, comforting, and delicious menu is both whimsical and earnest. It is constantly evolving but standout items have included a novel twist on crab rangoon and the carrot crepe. Read more

    The menu is listed from smallest to largest portions. Get about 5 plates to share for 2 people and make sure you get the carrot crepe!

    Inventive, shareable menu - bring a group and try one of everything. The hen and the leek dishes were two of our favorites. Back garden has seating for drinks and snacks.

    Incredible meal. Careful, sophisticated cooking without the fuss or pretense (or pricepoint). Get the Crawfish Boil Crackers to start.

    FANTASTIC! Entree portions are on the smaller side so get other plates. The Hake was the best I've ever had, the guinea was exceptional (that confit sauce 😋), the clams in that carrot crepe 😋).

    Warm environment, creative and thoughtful dishes, carefully-crafted space, fun experience. A real gem. Standouts: rosemary cocktail, kale crab rangoon, rutabaga "tagliatelle", Dave's trout, s'mores.

    Everything is so good - stars were the carrot crepe, the falafel, and the bluefish salad. Drinks are excellent too - get there before your reservation and sit in the garden on a nice night

    Fresh and exciting without being stuffy or pretentious. Everything is well considered from the space to the plates and napkins. Get ALL the snacks, the carrot crepe, the scallops, and pork collar.

    One of the many, many reasons to visit this Brooklyn charmer: silky house-made fro-yo with hints of lavender. It's a great meal-capper that won't weigh you down. Read more

    Hot take: carrot cake good not great 👍🏻 run, don't walk, to get the SWEET POTATO & UNI PIEROGIS 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 cauliflower okonomiyaki 👍🏻👍🏻 popcorn monkfish 👍🏻 rosemary drink 👍🏻👍🏻
  • Ashley C.
    Worth going for the cute backyard (make real smores there) and creative vegetarian-skewed dishes. Favorite dishes were the carrot crepe and cauliflower. The uni pierogies are not worth getting.

    If you have 4 or more, order the entire non-snack menu. Don't forget to try some cocktails before diving into the wine list. Even the garnishes are on point.
  • Cole K.
    Dreamy, delightful meal. Their take on crab rangoons and deviled eggs are perfect, but you should try a range of everything. Make a reservation a few weeks in advance and plan a little double date.

    Everything is amazing. Menu changes regularly but seems like the crab Rangoon is a staple which should not be missed! Excellent cocktails also.
  • Poonam D.
    The herb garden is super cute, great space to have a drink & a small bite while you wait for your table. The food was unbelievably fresh and tasty. Cocktails were excellent - and the staff <3

    Order the carrot crepe with littleneck clams (sounds weird, tastes divine), lamb porchetta, and flawless chocolate mousse. Read more

    Everything here is amazing. You cannot go wrong with ordering. Make sure to check out the garden and roast marshmallows.
  • Claudio E.
    We had about 12-14 dishes. All were phenomenal except maybe 1. I think that says enough. Whatever you do, don't pass on the Guinea Hen 2 ways. I'll be coming back at least once a month.

    Small portions, but the food is fantastic on all fronts and all courses. The vibe is great, the garden is lovely and the staff are just the right level of attentive.

    The vegan in our party was literally served a slice of potato on a plate- that was it! and for dessert a "fruit platter" which was a bowl of sliced apples AND CANNED MANDARIN ORANGES! So disappointing

    Very popular. Make a reservation in advance if at all possible on the website. Chef's counter is best seat in the house if you like the action!

    Drinks in the garden and frozen yogurt dessert were awesome. Dinner itself was okay. Non seafood fans like myself may struggle with the menu. Thought the fried pickles and falafel were forgettable.

    Great and creative menu. Highlights: carrot crepe, tartare (fish), the "tagliatelle". Group DID NOT like the egg custard nor the lamb dish.

    Overall, the dishes were a bit salty. My expectations for carrot crepe fell short, but guinea hen dish was sweet potato+uni pierogies were unique and delicious

    Rosemary cocktail was great, and the bartenders are really nice! The food was a bit disappointing, the trout was a bit cold. Def overhyped and not worth the the 2 month wait for a reservation.

    Don't try and go here if you don't have a reservation. All tables are reserved so if you're trying to walk in on a busy night you can only sit at the bar.

    The pork collar entree—raclette, broccolini, pepper—is the finest "roast pork sandwich" you'll ever have outside of Philadelphia.

    Carrot crepe, rutabaga "tagliatelle" and the guinea hen were all incredible. Lives up to the incredibly high hype.

    Still one of the best in NYC. Hot toddy was excellent, fried chicken, duck liver, too.

    Excellent, very creative farm-to-table seasonal small plates dinner in a cozy atmosphere

    This was my gross Thanksgiving "dinner." This place cannot accommodate vegans, vegetarians or pescatarians. We left feeling insulted.

    Carrot crepe and deceptively simple frozen yogurt/honey are genius-level delicious.

    Ask for bread! It's not on the menu and they only bring it if you ask but it's delicious.
  • Ryan M.
    If the weather is nice, ask to take your dessert in the garden.
