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

Colonie: excellent food and staff, best burger ever. Sit up at the "counter" and watch your own Top Chef in action.

Went here with a group of friends. This is a busy and atmospheric restaurant with bare brick walls in a long dining room. Service was excellent. Our wait people were friendly, attentive and always around while being unobtrusive. One in our party ordered the fish of the day which was whole trout and said it was wonderful, moist and tasty....

Went on Saturday evening. Sat in rear where you can watch the cooks at work . Busy and vibrant. Good service and food although small portions. Steak was especially good. Expensive but a good experience.

I booked our team dinner for 17 people here and it was beyond perfect. Hard enough to serve 4 but 17? The staff was crazy good and the food was off the charts. Beet salad, fried chicken, hanger steak and any one of their desserts since we tried them all were amazing. Eat here! The food is amazing but if... More
