Fantastic food and service! Will definitely return. The oysters were delicious as were the sardines. Service was friendly, prompt and knowledgable. Can't fault our experience.

“Bring back the Old Brooklyn”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Possibly the worst meal we have ever had. Knowing and likely the old Brookie last Sunday, ourselves and another couple stopped here, nice new atmosphere, good drinks, but then we looked at the menu, virtually no choice, should have left then but 2 of us went for the 60 second steak Diane which turned out to be the thinnest flattest tasteless piece of something ever seen plus it was overcooked and as for our two waldorf salads, the chef could either visit NY or look in any basic cookbook to see what to do. The small helping of cold chips topped off the gastronomic disaster

“food just ok, same service”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

It's very lovely and noisy place, it looks like there is a good atmosphere.

The service is very friendly and fast.
The food was good (had crab linguine) the biggest disappointment was a dessert ( brownie with caramelised popcorn and melted icecream).
It was the worst desert ever because the brownie was dry and was difficult to dig into with the fork, no comment on caramelized popcorn as this comes from the supermarket,
on the top was melted icecream. As a dessert its was just cheaply done compilation of whatever is in the cupboard/fridge.

Not sure if I would come back there.

“lovely food and great service”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

lively and busy bar with great, friendly service. Great waiters who helped with recommendations of what to eat and when there was a problem with my main course it was quickly rectified without question. Food was good and had some lovely cocktails. Would go back.

“Lovely food, great service, prices great for the quality of food!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We intended to only stop for a drink, and ended up staying for three plus a whole meal! The servers were all lovely and very helpful. The G&Ts were the cheapest we had the whole trip! The garlic prawn appetizer was AMAZING. We ended up sharing The Diane and the Seafood Chili Linguine. The food was just delicious and presented well. We loved the decor and general atmosphere of the place. I was tempted to go back again and again! Worth a visit!
