Late dinner!

This small place is a very nice option in Brooklyn. Good drinks and good food. I had the burger and it was awesome. Nice service.

Went to dinner at Colonie. My expectations weren't very high but I had heard that the food was pretty good. I had the pork chops with the grilled peaches. It was delightfully delicious. The chop was tender and well seasoned and the peach was a nice contrast. The spoonbread could use a little (something to make it taste better) and... More

I have eaten at Colonie probably 10 times over the last couple of years and it has been such a favorite. Everything is always super fresh and the service is close to perfect. I like to sit and watch them cook at the bar in the back. There is literally not a bad thing on the menu but any seafood... More

This was the most delightfully surprising experience I've had in a long time. I'm new to the area and have been trying out places in the neighborhood. This was a non-planned, walk-up, look at the menu in the window dining experience and I was totally blown away. Every bite was indulgent and satisfying. The service was awesome. The decor was...

Met friends here for drinks after work. We loved the drinks so much, we closed the place down. After the third round of drinks, we ordered food... oysters and clams on the half shell were great. We ended up trying more than half the menu and took no issue with any of it.

Loved the ambience and from the get go drinks and oyster specials at the bar were so nicely explained. Ricotta crostini delicious as were the macerated strawberries desert. What I loved however is that after sending our steaks back for being what we felt was underdone, the waitress and other young lady who was possibly the manager both followed up... More

Very good, been meaning to go back but haven't yet. Was part of a birthday celebration with a set menu culled from their regular menu. I don't know if it was just for that day/week/menu but the chef does great things with Meyer lemons. There was a Meyer lemon rind marmalade (they may have called it some fancy French name... More

We choose Colonie for an after-theatre meal and it was a great way to end the evening. Not a place for quiet romance: it was noisy and bustling but we liked the energy. Some really innovative New American cooking and great choice of American wines served by knowledgeable and helpful staff. We sat at the kitchen counter which provided some... More

Great food in a neat atmosphere with excellent service. I would definitely return. The pork chop was awesome. Four of five cheeses were excellent on the cheese plate. The donuts were a great dessert for sharing.

Favorite dinner spot with warm, friendly staff and delicious food so I was surprised last Friday evening when the rush of guests impacted the usually excellent quality of service. Despite having just gotten served after a long wait, plates were cleared while we were eating and the check was offered. Will definitely be going back, just not on a Friday... More
