Delicious food, great service. Best steakhouse I have ever been to. Atmosphere very comfortable and relaxed. Always enjoyable. I suggest the Porterhouse for two and the mushroom appetizer, really good!

We had diner at Destefanos. Its like walking into the living room from a family. De meals are expensive but worth jt. Its delicious and prepared with care. Also the portions are very large. You can easily share the big portion but its actually too good to share! A must when in Brooklyn!

This was a good meal. We love to try any steak house, and we were exploring Brooklyn this trip. This restaurant is causal, easy to get to and reasonably priced considering the area is up and coming. We shared a NY strip that was great, had the french onion soup and wine. Good service.

Cozy atmosphere, creative appetizers ( loved the short rib rolls), a 40 oz Porterhouse that melted in your mouth - no need for steak knives here! Great sides - these cost extra - and the creamed spinach was divine. The veal chop was enormous, and also tender with a creamy mushroom sauce. Great place!

We stayed in a very dodgy area of Brooklyn and found this fabulous 'escape' on trip advisor. The staff and food were truly amazing. An excellent menu with specials, typical American layout but beautiful selection of food. The New York strip was the best ever and the lobster ravioli 'wow'. If it is the only place you eat then go... More

DeStefano's has been around since the beginning of time. This restaurant is a survivor in the ever evolving neighborhood of Williamsburg. It is not only because of its food, great service but it's mainly because of its steady stream of regular customers who always return for more. The atmosphere represents Brooklyn back-in-the-days, walls full of pictures and clippings of Brooklyn... More

We had dinner here before going to see Barbara Streisand at the Barclay Center. Parking was easy, food was delicious, service was great. What more can you ask? We got the special for 2 which really was for 3! Steak was delicious and the sides (ordered separately) were also really good. Highly recommend!!

Make sure you take the L train to Lorimar. Who knew there are 2 Lorimar Stations a mile apart. Once we arrived all was well in the world. Great atmosphere. Even better food and perfect hosts on attendance. Highly recommend this for meat lovers everywhere

My son and I were on a steak night and decided based on TA reviews that this place was worth the visit and so it was indeed. We both had bone-in ribeyes and weren’t really fussed on sides as we just wanted to see if the steaks were as good as the reviews. They were excellent. Service was good and... More

My first time here and I heard such good things about this restaurant. The service was excellent I give them that but the steak was just ok and the drinks were a little weak. Del Friscos had better steak and sides to me. I would be willing to try it again and get a different steak instead of the filet... More
