We went for dinner here at about 6:30 and the bar was already busy. We sat at the tables in the back and usually I don't like loud music (hard to have a conversation) at dinner but it suited this place. It was an all around good time with attentive and friendly service. A great beer selection (I got a... More

My boyfriend and I love heading to black swan. It is in walking distance of our home and its a nice like hangout. There are always daily specials on drinks which is good. They also have basketball and soccer nights. The food is also pretty good. I love the black swan salad, their bloody mary, and their brunch.

Spent a few days in Brooklyn, it was nice at the end of the long days to have a few beers and something to eat, the range of beers were good, the food was always well cooked and the service was always friendly. They also show Prem football on a Sunday morning that I didn't take advantage of. If you... More

I was back in Brooklyn for a few days and I really wanted to go back to either Do or Dine or Sud, until I read all the great reviews of Black Swan. It did not disappoint! They've got a respectable beer selection (which is saying a lot, since every place in the area has an amazing beer selection!). I... More

First time visiting, had calamari, thai wings, chopped salad (could be better). The calamari was seasoned well, thai wings were sweet. The chopped salad wasn't bad, but we ate that last. Food is an experience and so having ate that last it was a let down. Staff is friendly and I will be back for the chicken and waffles and... More

The best food EVER!!!!!! It's rare that you can go into a restaurant and find that everything on the menu is great. Well this is that place. 'The Black Swan Burgers' are cooked to perfection. 'The Rum French Toast' will make your mouth water as soon as it reaches your table. To truly feel like you just stepped off the... More

Nice place for brunch or dinner. Offbeat take on some comfort foods and good beer. We like to go on a midweek evening and enjoy a little quiet time.

First bar we visited on our trip to NY. Can't fault the food or service and the price range is average. Probably not for me again as not my kind of bar.

Ended up at the Black Swan by chance and was very pleasantly pleased. Great drinks, food, and a very rustic-modern atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.
