Description: DeStefano’s was established as a tribute to the DeStefano family and all those families that made the borough of Brooklyn and the Williamsburg community a great place to live. Our goal is to pay homage to the simple values of faith, family, and friends that are evidenced by the strong sense of unity in the Williamsburg community. It is with great pride and pleasure to serve nothing but the best of what life has to offer and to share with our guests a piece of Brooklyn’s history, as well as our own. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your dining experience. You’re one of the folks.

“Great meal, amazing steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

Whilst having a pint in a local bar I asked the barman for a recommendation for a good steak. His top 2 suggestions were Peter Luger and Destefano's. He said that PL's would prob be the better steak but Destefano's would be the better meal, so I went for the latter.

I wasn't disappointed at all. Because I arrived 5 minutes before the cut off time (really can't remember the time) I was able to take advantage of the fixed menu offer.

The food quality was very good but my steak was amazing! I'd put it at number 2 in my best steak list (I have previously lived in Texas so know good steak!!!!!).

Overall I had a very pleasant experience and if in that area again would definitely go back.

“A simple place for the most amazing meat in New York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

Far away from the lounge atmosphere Manhattan's steakhouse, you will find in Brooklyn one of the best experience you can have in New York. The onwer is still there to welcome you and have a few word to check you enjoyed the moment. Price are competitive, wine list is affordable and meat is definitely mouth watering. You can go there with blind eyes and taste the real feelling of a historic new york places.

“Do not miss this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Went to DeStefano's on Sunday night with no reservation, it was quite busy but were seated immediately. There is a good wine list at very reasonable prices. We ordered our appetisers and I had the crab cakes, so soft and delicious with a little kick at the end with the sprinkled paprika. My friend had the shrimp which she said was excellent. We then had melt in the mouth steaks with a sides of carrots in maple syrup mmmmm and creamy garlic mashed potatoes with chives. We continued on with the dessert and were treated to a magnificent cheesecake and tiramasu. This is a great family run friendly restaurant.

“Great Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

We are staying in Brooklyn and wanted a great steak. Six weeks ago, we tried to book a table for 6 at Peter Luger's or Sparks', and struck out both places. Good thing for us. We discovered DeStefano's with an Internet search, and we found a gem. Everyone agreed their meal was great. Great steaks and all the sides were beautiful. Check out their wine list on their Website. The prices on their great selection of California wines looks more like a Santa Rosa or St.Helena wine list than NYC. We all agreed it was an exceptional dining experience.
