I know locals love this place--and it does have a cool atmosphere with great beers and long tables to share. But I found it very overrated, as well as far too expensive for the quality. I've eaten bbq all across the country (40 years experience in Carolinas, Texas, Chicago, KC, etc.) and this is, by far, the most I've ever... More

I've been to fette sau a few times and the brisket does not disappoint, each and every time. It is perfectly smoked and the seasoning is simply on point. I'm getting hungry thinking about them. It was my first time having pork belly at this establishment and I was once again very impressed by the meat. This is one of... More

Loved the pork belly and the ribs. Waited in line for about 40 minutes on a Friday night at 8. That would have been ok if it was a different atmosphere inside.. But the fact that the level of noise was excruciatingly high, adding the queue stretching out in the street, people standing with trays full of food waiting to... More

This place has the best ribs that I have ever eaten. And the best pork belly too. I had a 1/2 pound of ribs all by myself and I loved every bite. Skip the add ons and stick to the meat; the exception is the bread. And keep in mind that the entrance is easy to miss. We walked right... More

Really excellent BBQ restaurant. We went there with friends and we had a great time. All the different meat are very good and so well cooked. I will definitely go back there.

Yeah - there are the expected hipster beards and a lil attitude, but this was my second visit and I'm going back - and I'm bringing friends. Fette Sau has a warm, convivial feel where you can just hang and eat til your heart's content. The decor is expected, but clever. The meat is delicious, the sides could use some... More

We visited Fetta Sau while on holiday in New York... We didn't eat all day hoping for a delicious feast for dinner. Sadly when we arrived we were met by staff that weren't particularly friendly and didn't explain where the menu was or how to order (you order at the counter, various blackboards on the walls with the menu, order...

Came here for my husband's birthday dinner. I did not realize it was family style, but by the time we sat down it didn't matter much since we had a few drinks during the 45 minute wait on line. While the menu online offers a variety of food choices, it turns out that you are subject to whatever they have... More

A bunch of us went here while visiting Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Unfortunately you can't book, have to wait in a queue (we waited around 20 minutes), and have to find a seat in the communal area. However, don't let that put you off. It's well worth the visit!!! The meats were amazing - Perfectly cooked and very tasty. You order... More
