While at Bklyn Museum

A great quiet place with REALLY excellent food in the museum. The only negative is slow service even at a weekday lunch in an uncrowded room. The food is so good I will stick with 5 stars.

While visiting New York, I trekked to Brooklyn to have dinner with a former colleague and his wife who now live in Brooklyn Heights. They suggested Saul, which was a perfect meeting spot since we also toured the adjacent Botanical Garden. It was better than any museum restaurant I've visited before, though the ambiance was a little on the mid-market... More

I'll give Saul credit for keeping things quiet, spacious and attractive. The food, as presented was beautifully done. It also tasted good. The restaurant has lots of room between tables so, at the least the night we were there, it was extremely private which is nice if you want to talk rather than listen to a dull roar invade your...

Rarely does a museum restaurant try to excel. A welcome difference awaits you here. Serene setting. Not cheap, but worth every cent. Gracious and caring servers. Unique menu created by a chef who deserves a few Michelin stars. Try it and sate your gustatory senses.

Amazing food and comfortable atmosphere. Loved the venison loin cooked rare and the scallops with barley and sweet potato. Innovative and delicious. However the waitstaff is more concerned about setting empty tables when guests are looking to order a drink, get bread or the check. Almost impossible to get anyone's attention as they focus on placing untensils on the table.

After reading several positive reviews, I booked this place on a Saturday evening. It was a special occasion and I wanted a nice, relaxed evening with two friends of ours. Well, I don't know Brooklyn well, but apparently on the first Saturday of every month, the Brooklyn Museum (where Saul is located) is part of Target's First Saturday celebration. The... More

First time visit after Saul's relocation from Court St -- very enjoyable dinner for two in a great setting; through internal window you observe museum strollers while dining. Service was impeccable and provided great advice on food and wine pairing. Worth mentioning: foie grasse. Will we come again -- most certainly, now that we know how to find this hidden... More

Overall, very good dining experience. Food involved creative flavorful seasonal combinations. Also appreciated that food overall was not very heavy, maybe geared appropriately to summer dining. Considering it's in the Brooklyn Museum, I felt like the ambience could be better/cooler. Possibly relatively high prices also keep # diners down.

Saul was an unexpected delight during a group visit to excellent Brooklyn Museum. Headed for the good (less pricey) cafeteria, we noticed a new dining option: Saul. What a fine lunch we enjoyed! Saul's affordable 'prix fixe' of salad + entree= $28; however we chose Atlantic Halibut (w/English peas, scarlet turnips) and Vermont Rabbit (w/asparagus, potatoes, radish) as more tempting... More
