Amazing Place

It's a little plain, nothing overly flashy, but boy, oh boy do they deliver a great steak! First off the service is super. Our waiter was casual, this isn't a formal service. He was extremely efficient and was great at helping us order and make good suggestions. He was friendly and fun. We started... read more

I'd read the reviews of DeStefano's and was a bit skeptical that my meal would surpass my experience at the local competition...but it did! We shared the Porterhouse and it did not disappoint. The peppery crust sealed the deal. Sides were all delicious. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Desert was good, but not as memorable as the superb aged... More

DeStefano's is not the most luxurious steak restaurant in NYC. It is a warm, inviting, friendly local restaurant that makes you feel welcome, serves well-composed dishes at (relatively) non-punishing prices, and gives you a bit of the all-comers feel that more places in Brooklyn used to have. You will see a real cross section of families, people on dates, and... More

Attentive waitstaff serving top notch porterhouse, bacon strips, chocolate and cheesecake. It's every bit as good as the reviews state.

I had the Mahi Mahi (my favorite fish so i know a good dish when i get it). It was kind of a small portion, but it typically is. Wasn't the best i've had, but it was really good over the asparagus. Husband had the $90 Porterhouse. It was one of the most delicious steaks ever. extremely tender, not much... More

We had a delicious steak and the salad was terrific. The wine comes in a generous serving glass! I had pasta and shrimp and it was fantastic. I little pricey but I liked the dining room a lot!

Walkable from the river. One mile. Beats Peter Lugars. Focus on crab cakes and veggie choices also. Great service. Clean, but with feeling of being established.

The steak is cooked perfectly. The meat melts in your mouth. You don't even need a steak knife. If you are not a vegetarian, you will enjoy every bite of it. The price of this place is similar to Peter Luger, but the place is homey with much less noise.

Great Steaks made to perfection in a small intimate family run old time restaurant. In a typical quaint Brooklyn community with single family multigenerational homes. Little parking and nearby gentrified hip area
