This place is impossible to find; when dining there recently, I went the wrong way and my wife, whose sense of direction is great, said so but I kept on going. Finally, we jumped into a cab and 5 minutes later we were there. There was nobody in the place when we got there and we told them we had... More

Walking down Hudson Street to Vinegar Hill House feels like you've been time-shifted into the 19th century (and to complete the picture walk up the hill to the Admirals House, a spectacular 19th century mansion overlooking the Navy Yards, and where the Admiral of the Navy once lived). Seating is tight, as tables are close together and unless you're on... More

I had a spent the day shopping with my son's girlfriend and my husband and son had been to the NYJets game so dinner at Vinegar Hill was a perfect way to end the day. Excellent food, good service and I loved the quirky location too. Thank you all at Vinegar Hill House. I will be back!

We had a lovely dinner on the back patio. The restaurant has a lot of charm and the food was excellent - cast iron chicken and cornbread were phenomenal as was the pork chop. (Note: hate to mention anything negative about this place because it was so good, but even though it was late September the mosquitos were in full... More

Found this place while on a long, birthday weekend get away in DUMBO. Very convenient walk from my accommodations, so I wanted to give it a try based on location, reviews, and menu. It didn't disappoint. Everything I tried was delicious and the service was friendly & attentive. I highly recommend it for brunch if you're convenient to Brooklyn. I'd... More

The four of us ate there and all really enjoyed the experience. Even though the menu was small all of our choices were excellent, both the mains and the sides. The pork seemed to be the overall favourite. Great drinks as well.

Hadn't been here in a year or two but had really enjoyed our previous visits. We're disappointed this time. We arrived as the place opened - only 3 other parties but it took 25 minutes to get a drink. Service was very poor and slow. Menu is very limited but excellent. That said my husband was very disappointed in his... More

Walk Brooklyn bridge and go to Vinegar Hill House for lunch or brunch! Courteous service, fantastic sandwiches and burgers, side potatoes to kill for... And the price is right too! (but let me be clear: this is not a fancy restaurant)

You must get the cornbread - salmon and brisket were also superb. The atmosphere was perfect for a summer night. Great spot!
