Really good - even sat outside!

Unfortunately couldn't get in as it was super busy so we sat outside on a chilly April morning - but it was still great! Had the egg sandwich with a delicious tomato relish - perfect to start the day! Will be back next year!

Asking for clean cutlery as they were covered in caked on food from a previous customer was met with glares of derision and silent, abrupt replacement. I asked for sugar for my coffee, the bowl of packets was literally thrown on the table spilling my coffee and the waitress just waked away. The food was average at best. A real... More

Our favourite place for burgers, truffle fries & of course, the ricotta pancakes. Five leaves is not just well-priced - but the food is INCREDIBLE a & the service is amazing. Staff are genuine & look after their customers. We went 4 times during our NY stay. I highly recommend. The bar there is also super cool.

If you love Heath Ledger, and you love truffle fries, you will love Five Leaves. The frisee salad is also really good.

We went to Five Leaves a couple of times during our stay in NY and had a great evening on both occasions. The food is great, but what really makes this place stand out is the atmosphere and the staff. Great place to feel like a local, and much better than eating out in Manhatten. Thank you guys.

We had been looking forward to visit the Five Leaves for a long time, and the food was really good. But the meal was ruined by the rubber band that ended up in my mouth from my food... Disgusting!

You might have to wait but the food is worth the wait, great service, great food, great atmosphere, very "Brooklyn" and I say that as a local. One of my fav dining spots in the area! Sit outside during nice weather!

We stood in the cold for about an hour to get a table and it was absolutely worth it. Great vibe, great sandwiches, the truffle fries were particularly good (and fills the whole restaurant with an amazing aroma). Service good.

I have a sweet spot for reggae so when we entered and the music was great I knew we'd be happy here. We loved the industrial edge and cool ambience to the interior and although it turns out this the local hipster place to go they didn't seem to be taking their success for granted. Friendly service, inviting selections on... More

Seriously it's the best. I've probably been here about twenty times now, and I've tried almost everything on the menu. You really can't go wrong. Coffee's good, but the cocktails are better. The only downside to Five Leaves is the size of the venue. It is not a big place to begin with, and they cram in a lot of... More
