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

Love this place. I was alone on a Sunday, mid-afternoon and looking for a quick meal. I stumbled upon this little gem while exploring Brooklyn. 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.

This is a great little neighborhood meeting spot. It's good for meeting friends or probably a romantic dinner. There's a little table in the front window with four ice cream parlor chairs. Try to sit there. It's so cozy. All of the staff is young and friendly. The wine list is good and priced right. The menu is casual french.... More

We were invited out to Brooklyn to Chez Oskar for a post birthday brunch. The atmosphere was standard, nothing special, and the wait staff took quite some time to realize we were actually seated in the restaurant - not good. We dined inside but they did have outside sidewalk dining, it was a little warm so we skipped the outside... More

We had 2 visits in the 2 weeks we were in Fort Greene. Wished we lived closer ! Ate similar meals both times, mussels, lobster crepe and a Fort Greene salad. First time we had dessert. We think this place rocks, great music from the Blue Vipers of Brooklyn, lovely fresh food seafood and salad, perfect!

Chez Oskar has live music in the evening. We went to hear Margi and the Dapper Dots(fabulous). The music, the eclectic decor and the French cuisine made for a pleasant evening. I had the vegetarian burger, but did not find it very appealing. The watermelon and beet salad is a great starter. The lobster crepe is wonderful. Seafood looks to... More
