We ate at Bonnie's during our trip to NYC. It had superb food and service. My boyfriend was on a diet and asked what was the healthiest option and he was so helpful and friendly. The atmosphere was really cool and the burger was the best burger ever. It was done to medium and the smokey taste was the best... More

This is a very small bar/restaurant with a great neighborhood atmosphere, terrific menu choices and delicious food. We went recently on a family visit to Brooklyn and we all enjoyed it. I had the chicken wings and they were cooked perfectly, crispy and delicious. Our son had a catfish burger that he wolfed down and said it was excellent. All... More

We ate at Bonnie's twice during our visit to NYC and we had great food and service. There aren't many tables but we easily found space at the bar, where you get a good view of the staff preparing the dishes, which was fun to view. The hamburgers were delicious (and cooked to perfection - I asked for medium rare... More

Very busy and lively restaurant that serves truly excellent burgers. But also provides gluten free options. Very impressed by the portions - no room left on your plate! We went during the week and filled it up very quickly so go early. If you're a Brit and of a certain age, the posters of '60s groups may bring back memories.

3 of us ate at Bonnie's on a week night. We were looking for a place in the neighborhood with no wait and ended up at Bonnie's. We were very pleased. My husband had a hamburger and raved. I had a chef salad and it was really good. Our friend had the vegetarian chili and loved it. we split an... More

As I wander around with a New York local after a trip to Brooklyn Museum the conversation turned to dinner. On the mention of wings I instantly lit up. I have missed the amazing American style wings I get in Dublin's Elephant and Castle since I moved to London and was desperate to try to find a substitute on my... More

After researching before we left for our New York vacation we checked reviews for restaurants where we'd be staying in Park Slope. Bonnie's Grill lived up to the reviews! I loved the diner feel of the restaurant. We ordered the hot wings with the 'hotter' sauce on the side.... it's HOT but not the kind where you can't eat anything... More

An authentic American diner with a great choice of succulent burgers and lighter options. Clean, inexpensive and ambient. A fab venue for a fast and flavourful lunch.

This has the potential to be a premier destination because so few places get both wings and burgers right and the products themselves are there. Having said that the down side is catastrophic as in if I make one more visit there I may never return. Let me clarify the wings were first rate with good but not great blue... More

This is a fun comfortable local place. Small but cozy atmosphere. I had a tasty catfish burger, served with lettuce and tomato on a warm bun. It came with a side of fries that were crispy and hot. My boyfriend ordered the regular burger with spicy slaw. He said that it was real good. They have a small selection of... More
