    Amazing small plates. One of the best meals I've ever had in NYC. Only 11 tables so call ahead.

    Tasting menu was heavenly

    Food was delicious and seasonal. Plates are small served family style.

    Lamb stuffed cabbage is perfect on a cold rainy night

    Nick Runyan · October 15, 2014

    They had us at French Fry Salad! The Shell Peas & Sugar Snaps are also a CITY GRIT favorite!

    From the complimentary amuse-bouche to the gingerbread steamed pudding, this place is worth the splurge. And when weather allows, try to get a seat in their garden. Read more

    It’s pricey, but for one of the best bargains in the borough, try the Green Plate Special - $40 for the four-course veggie tasting menu. Read more

  • Compass

    As the name implies, this veggie-focused restaurant is a go-to for seasonal picks from roast game and winter squash to wildly popular signatures like french fry “salad” topped with wild mushrooms.

    Compass · May 14, 2014
  • Brady D.

    Really really good, but pricey. Wine is way high and what you think is an entree is just a little dish. Super good, but dear.

    Brady Dale · April 18, 2014
  • Mike O.

    Sunday pancakes!

    Mike O'Dea · February 16, 2014
  • Monet S.

    The staff is attentive, the food is delicious, and the restaurant is cozy! Make a reservation -- great place for an anniversary dinner or intimate date!

    If this isn't a perfect restaurant I'm not sure what would qualify.

    The small plates are not that small and each dish was tasteful

    Best meal I've had in New York!!! Amazing wine list and a delicious seasonal menu. Risotto, snap pea salad, and mocha bread pudding are a must! Loved the complimentary samples. Sit in the garden!

    Amy Weisinger · June 30, 2013
  • Mike S.

    Highly recommend the tasting menu, pretty awesome!

    Mike Scheiner · June 30, 2013
  • Ari G.

    Everything was good, but very few dishes really stood out (with the exception of the sorbet palate cleanser). For the price, we expected more.

    Ari Greenberg · June 8, 2013

    Venison. Mmmm

    My favorite restaurant on Smith Street.

  • Mark H.

    Holy moley this place is good. Two plates per person is plenty -- cauliflower, duck and the hen were the favs.

    Mark Himmelsbach · December 30, 2012
  • Jason H.

    Try the beets and cheese raviolis. Amazing.

    Jason Howie · November 11, 2012
  • Anirvan G.

    The best food I've had at NYC so far. This is a small place, and rated very highly so reservations are almost impossible to get. I got lucky as my cousin's friend cancelled hers.

    The chef here is also the owner and it shows! The food and service is excellent.

    One of the best meals I've had in NYC. I really like the people, too. I will return again and again.

    Slow Rendered Duck Breast

    More hot sauce.

    Stand awkwardly in the pass

    Mike O'Dea · January 27, 2012
  • Peter K.

    Get a reservation, enjoy one of the better dinners you'll ever have.

    Peter Knox · January 7, 2012
  • The Corcoran Group

    For a light lunch, try the Chopped Salad – it’s perfect. For a light dinner (or as a starter) the Noodle Salad is a must.

    The Corcoran Group · September 19, 2011
  • Alex W.

    Focus on desserts, this is the strong point of the restaurant! Go for appetizer and dessert or entree and dessert.

    Alex Winter · September 18, 2011
  • Sharon

    One of the best meals I've had in Brooklyn!

    Sharon · September 14, 2011

    The best. Always.

  • Anne C.

    Low-key, high-caliber. Gracious service and excellent food - perfect for your parents or a really good date.

    Try the caramel cognac ice cream...but there's no cones in it.

    Jeff Chwast · October 22, 2010
  • The Corcoran Group

    Grab a table in the garden when it’s nice and try the BBQ Duck Sandwich (for lunch) or the Seared Sea Scallops and the Duroc Pork Chop for dinner.

    The Corcoran Group · October 15, 2010
  • Paul R.

    Try the faro if it's on the menu.

    Paul Rozario · January 9, 2010
  • Mike O.

    If bacon is on the menu, have it. Charlie makes his own in a smoker in the garden and its quite good.

    Mike O'Dea · August 3, 2009
  • Steve W.

    Go and order a meal, but also one of Sharon's amazing deserts. Chosen as one of New York's (not just Brooklyn's) top ten restaurants a couple years ago by Zagats.
