“we love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

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!

“No fuss French cuisine.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

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 be the best thing on the menu. I regretted not ordering the mussels. No dessert was listed on the menu and none was offered, so don't visit with a sweet tooth.

Have been here several times - it's a nice spot in Fort Greene to meet someone for lunch/brunch. Love the merguez sandwich.

“A little joint with great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This place is small and crowded but has a nice vibe, and the food is simple but excellent. It is a French restaurant, and the food is French with none of the pretention that the label usually carries in the US. We live in Switzerland near the French border, and what we got here is very close to what we get in your basic family-run restaurant in France. Service was excellent and friendly. This is a really nice place for a date or to go with friends.
