“AVOID-rip off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We went before an event at Barclays and had a tasting menu with wine pairing.

They charged $65 each for the wine pairing and poured 3 oz tastings of the wine for the main courses and 2 oz for the dessert wine and sparking wine that came with the app. These portions were smaller than I've ever had for a pairing and I got an attitude from the sever when I asked for a larger pour. Dinner came to over $500 for the two of us and we didn't even have a full bottle of wine in our tasting. We finally just asked for 2 glasses of red wine for our steak and we were charged $18 each. These wines were nothing special.

I have had dinners that were much better for half the price in manhattan. If looking for a place for Barclays I would avoid this place unless you like to be ripped off and given an attitude.

As for the food...3 of the courses were very good and 2 were Below average.

Worst $500 dinner of our lives.

Delightful trendy new restaurant in Brooklyn. Absolutely the best meal I have ever had. The chef is amazing, as is the food. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. This restaurant is a must for visitors to NYC! Everything was perfect.

“Delicious Sunday brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We were walking down Fulton looking for a place for brunch and fortuitously stumbled into Prospect. The restaurant has about 6-8 tables, a nice bar area and an open kitchen in the rear. Our party started with Wellfleet oysters, which were heavenly. Then we moved on to your typical brunch dishes, French toast, crepes, eggs Benedict, which were anything but typical. Each had its own inventive twist and each was delicious. Can't wait to come back for dinner sometime.
