Tucked away in a lil corner in Williamsburg , DeStefano's is a gem....laid back atmosphere. Menu is simple and straight to the point. Sometimes amazing food just needs to be kept simple. Flavor! Flavor! Flavor! 1 of the best steaks I've ever had in NYC... Mash potatoes were yum... French onion soup delish...Greens sautéed perfectly...Lamb is def on point.. but... More

Had heard about DeStefano's Steakhouse in Brooklyn on a recent trip to NYC. Took advantage of a Groupon coupon and came with a friend to this place on a Sunday evening in November. We had a great experience. The service was excellent. Lea gave us some great feedback on the steak questions we had and finally decided on the 40oz... More

What a great experience! We were warmly welcomed, and soon ordered drinks, which were promptly served with a lot of friendliness. Then we started with crab cakes, which were delicious, and perfectly prepared. For mains, we had a filet mignon, and also a strip sirloin. Both were perfectly prepared to order, and so delicious! We also had a wonderful ravioli... More

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
