I eat out a lot both in the UK and the US and results can be patchy. e.g. out in the sticks (country areas) in the US it can be tricky to get fed with a degree of sophistication. This is not said to imply lower quality food, merely to clarify the style of cuisine. In the US it is... More

Went for late dinner after a concert at King's Theater... only 15 min drive away. Excellent buttery and garlicky escargot, huge juicy PEI mussels, and tender salmon. Overall delicious dinner for two for <$100, we had a great time. Only two minor complaints, which did not discourage my rating. One, the first bread basket was perfectly warmed and crispy on...

When visiting Brooklyn, we decided to try Chez Oskar. The restaurant is a small, local restaurant with an intimate feel. We were promptly seated and the outstanding service staff was helpful in choosing entrees and very attentive throughout. Tables were lit with candles and there was a romantic atmosphere. We had three entrees which were excellent: mushroom risotto, coq au... More

Chez Oskar is hands down one of the most amazing restaurants in Brooklyn...and in NY! They have a great menu and the staff is well-versed.

We lived in the area and went maybe 3-4 times over a few weeks time. Excellent staff, nice menue with a - for the size of the restaurant - wide range of authentic french cuisine. I'd return when in Brooklyn next time. It is also located in the centre of Fort Greene - one of the more calm and cosy... More

Let me just say that the servers were all VERY attentive. I ordered the salmon omelette with red onions and capers and it arrived promptly. And it was YUMMY. The home fries and potatoes which...

Dinner for three. Arrive early as it fills up quickly at around 7 pm. The place has a lot of character, the food was very good, the staff was attentive and the service was prompt.
