We had a group of six and were treated perfectly! We cut back on the recommended number of plates by four and had plenty of excellent tasty small plates. We would definitely go back!

It's a really cool place with a nice and friendly staff. The food and cocktail are perfect. One of the best places i've eaten and a must if you're staying in Williamsburg.

This food here is simply amazing. We were in a big group and split in pairs to order different plates. The strategy worked out because each of each got to try 3 of them. And they were all great! They all come from the open kitchen randomly at the chef's discretion, but that is not a problem at all. The... More

Seafood, and pork friendly. Healthy fried nice portions , beautiful presentation. Very tasty. I would consider dinning at that place as fine dinning but still casual.

Wow! Great food, good service and cute atmosphere. Music is also great. The bacon donuts, sliders etc were amazing. We cleared the plate on every course. Recommend this place to the end

This is ... Love. Young, hard working and talented chefs and other personell try hard to give you the best. Very popular and crowded but wearth every penny. If you want only one fun night in NYC... Spend it here.

This restaurant is a MUST if you are in New York! It's quite small place with a super cosy atmosphere. The menu is based on sharing different little dishes and honestly - it's absolutely gorgeous! I never though a simple salad could taste so delicious and give me such a big smile. All dishes we had, including desert, was super... More

Unique food combinations. Drinks are incredible as well. All set in a very cozy, well lit place. The sliders are definitely the restaurant's signature dish; but you can't go wrong with any plate.

I went walk in and sat at the bar. Bartender explained to me the menu, and as I talked to him he was very friendly and more genuine than most of the service received in many Williamsburg places. Food was awesome and you have to note that there's an amazing effort going on from the kitchen staff, since their space... More
