This is my favorite restaurant in Brooklyn, if not all of NYC. My wife and I have been coming here for years and the food and drinks are consistently amazing. The menu is always changing and using whatever is in season. As far as drinks, it doesn't get much better than a Rude Little Pig. Go here, you'll be impressed.

Oh Traif, a restaurant that serves all of my favourite things was always going to be a winner... The food was great, quite a varied menu that is made up of smaller sharing dishes. A nice spread of options that were well done. The food wasn't 'gastronomy' but it was very flavourful and non-pretentious which I prefer. I would say... More

I ordered barbecue ribs and roasted ducks. They are both small plates for 12 dollars. I would say they the dishes were good. The ribs' meat fell off the bones while dish artistically presented. Nonetheless they were not exceptional. I would say unique design but not gastronomically wonderful for the price.

I love how the restaurants in Brooklyn have steadily upped their game. Traif (and the adjacent Xixa) are far and away my favs. This is one of the best restaurants to feel like a foodie without it killing your wallet. The food is always delicious and spans all sorts of flavors, textures and ingredients. I read a few of the... More

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.
