as Frank Lloyd Wright said...form follows function! In restaurant terms......it all about the food!
Extensive, broad, encompassing wine (and beer) list matched with prime cut steaks (and sides) all in a chic comfortable Brooklyn atmosphere!!

Will be back, will recommend to all my peeps (except the posers), and will remember as one of the top dining experiences!!!

Big wait. Loud music. Limited menu. Delicious. Fun. Reasonably priced.

They own the sister bar next door that has the biggest secret patio I've seen in Brooklyn. Nice place to wait for 2 hours until they have a table available.

The staff at St. Anselm are so nice, you can't even be mad at them: we waited over an hour, they called us twice by mistake. Good thing they own the beer garden adjacent to the restaurant! It was packed, perhaps by people waiting for their tables? When we finally got to sit down, the food came reasonably soon. Very fresh and delicate appetizers (home-made burrata is a must, so is the octopus), the hanger steaks were perfectly grilled and the quality of the meat, simply outstanding. As a side, the mashed potatoes with truffled oil came in a funny-looking but delicious patty. The chanterelle mushrooms left a slight and mysterious tarragon taste in our mouths. The Cabernet was just the right temperature. Definitely a place to eat at.

Our bill at the end at $50 for 2 people while my mom had 2 beers with her meal. Steak was cooked wonderfully and they even pre cut it. The pan mashed potatoes was so yummy i was thinking bout ordering a 2nd serving as we only ordered one to share. Overall this is a must place to eat at in New York. Just a short 10 min walk from the subway J line. Get the butcher steak ;)

I went here for my anniversary with my wife. I knew about the wait thanks to a friend. We expected an hour wait but the hostess said "about an hour and a half" so we sat at the bar they own next door and had a couple drinks. exactly an hour and a half later we were taken to a seat at the bar, which was not the only table open. we then ordered immediately having looked at the menu. we ordered a salad and 2 grilled fish options. what happened then was the longest wait for food I have ever experienced. It literally took another hour plus to put food in our mouth!!! There were 3 "cooks" and half the time one was just standing around!!!! we are talking about grilling a piece of fish!!!! and some veggies! the place wasn't even packed, and it was a wednesday. about a half hour in while waiting for our food we started to look up another restaurant. honestly this place is ridiculous. the food is fine but i'm not going to tell my friends about it. what i will tell them is how long i waited for grilled mackerel. find somewhere else.
