Great service, great atmosphere. Whole staff was very friendyl. This place is truly a gem. The small plates are perfect because it allows you to try all the joy this place has to offer, like the bacon crusted doughnut or the strawberry glazed ribs.

Went along with a Jewish friend and loved it, took a little while for us to find but worth it. Had to ask the waiter to stop bringing food...he didn't! relaxed, professional and different.

I would like to begin by suggesting no one to come here on an empty stomach. The portions are definitely a microcosm compared to other eateries. We were here for a birthday celebration for 7 people and foolishly ordered the "chef's selection". My initial choice was ordering an entrée for myself but since the majority of the party wanted the... More

Started off a little rocky when they did not have our reservation. But quickly changed when they not only fit us in but amazed us with great service and interesting, delicious, amazing food. There were four of us so we did the "chef selection". Everything was the so good.

What a fabulous place....On a chance trip to Brooklyn we discovered this restaurant 3 blocks from where we were staying. Everything we tried (8 dishes between 3 of us) was superb, Each dish had too many ingredients to list but we had the lacinato kale, salt and pepper shrimp, broccoli rabe, black spaetzle, Korean Hamachi, braised pork cheeks, sweetbreads and...

What a great evening; the food is excellent! We ordered 5 dishes and we enjoyed all of them. Everyone that goes here has to order the figs wrapped in bacon with blue cheese... One of the nicest dishes we have eaten! A definite must visit if you're in New York.

We had a family dinner at Traif and since we were five, we were able to savor 15 of the small dishes on the menu. They were all well prepared with fresh ingredients. The variety of offerings appealed to the various tastes. Some dishes that night were crayfish, sweetbreads, sliders, Shishito peppers, pork ribs, goat neck (yes and it was... More

An unexpected treat. Goodness throughout in an inconspcious location. Microscopic open kitchen. Chaotic environment, caring, skilled and friendly staff. Love it, 100% chance of return.

The airy doughnuts topped with dulce de leche and crispy bacon bits with a scoop of strong coffee ice cream is a must. The cocktails are creative and pair perfectly with the food. Get the head-on prawns and be prepared for a wonderful, delicious, spicy mess. For singles or couples, seats at the bar are recommended to watch the magic... More
