“Best Small Restaurant in Brooklyn”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Kiwiana is a newish restaurant in Park Slope which features an interesting collection of the most delicious food in the borough of Brooklyn. It has a bistro feel, but the food is way beyond bistro. The menu includes meats, fish, and vegetarian dishes, all with a Kiwi flair. There will typically be a game entrée as well, recently featuring venison loin. They have original cocktails as well, my recent favorite is the Autumn Breeze. We are a family of five including a 6 year-old, and they welcome us warmly. Most patrons are groups of 2 or 3 adults though, so don't think of it as a raucous kids club. They also have a banging brunch on Sundays. The food is upscale, the service is incredible, and I am fearful they will one day leave us for Manhattan.

“Wonderful neighbourhood gem in Brooklyn”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Such excellent service and great food! Foie gras starter was exceptional and every choice for us four diners for our mains was exceptional. Timing was so quick and yet appropriate. venison medium rare was perfect, salmon and lamb were consumed with delight.
Just a great place - go there!

“Nice place for relaxing dinner”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We live in the neighborhood and like Kiwiana more than some of the "top rated" restaurants in the area. Food is tasty and creative without being fussy and pretentious (try the cold corn and crab soup). It doesn't look like much from the outside, but is definitely a good option if you are going to be in Park Slope for dinner or Sunday brunch.

“Great taste of home”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

I came here for my birthday dinner to get a taste of home and was thoroughly impressed. The meals were delicious and the foreigners I brought along enjoyed the introduction to a more culinarily artistic NZ cuisine. The foie gras starter was outstanding and the baby back ribs were phenomenal.
Service was friendly and sweet.
I would very highly recommend this place to all.
Reserve ahead as around 7pm it fills up and is a little short on space. Atmosphere is cosy and very much like small restaurants back home.

A great meal and a wonderful night. A++
