Prior to flying to NY, we'd chosen our New Years Eve destination, Colonie in Brooklyn. We're very pleased we had. 4 course degustation, champagne toast at midnight, DJs in-house. Wonderful. The food here is exceptional and I'd love to be still in NY to go back for brunch/lunch or dinner again. I had the pleasure of being served the crispy... More

Hamburgers excellent, deserts very good (doughnuts and cake). Menu very sparse and poorly described as written. Octopus tough, clams not great, panini with ricotta very ordinary, pork chops salty with too much lemon...trout just ok... No chardonnay by the glass, and almost $80/pp overall. Hard to recommend more than a couple of things... Service was good, ambience a bit dark... More

One of my favorite higher end restaurants in Brooklyn. The food is impecable but the vibe is very warm. Its trendy without being at all pretentious. Sharing small plates is great so that you can try many of the dishes and if you like the big plates are very shareable. Everything is very fresh of course and extremly well presented.... More

A local favorite. Great food based on a small but well chosen menu. Fantastic atmosphere and the staff treats people very well. Excellent cocktails. Overall the place is the kind of neighborhood spot a local can love and draw in people. Fairly priced as well.

Very trendy place, open kitchen in the rear. Small menu, small portions, but very tasty. Decent wine selection. They do not accept reservations, so try to come before 6:30, or the place will be packed. The service is very attentive. For desert - try their doughnuts.

I had a delicious dinner with a friend at Colonie recently and was really pleased. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable as compared to similar restaurants. A shared appetizer, small plate, glass of wine, coffee and dessert came out to about $55 each. Not bad consider the high quality of the food and service. My only... More

I only stopped in here for a drink but wish I had stayed for dinner. The food being delivered to the people around me at the bar looked incredible. The burger with beets & a fried egg looked phenomenal. I had their Cucumber cocktail served in a martini glass. It was out of this world and something I could go... More

This restaurant was amazing and delicious!! It is well worth a wait, we walked around the beautiful Brooklyn Heights while waiting. We sat at the chef's counter which was such a fun experience! The food was delicious, so we kept ordering more small plates! Very authentic, fresh food. The service was great! The vibe was energizing! If you're in Brooklyn... More
