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

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.
