Reviewed November 7, 2013

Everything we had on the menu was prepared perfectly. We even ordered a basic chicken dish that was superb.

“Did not meet expectations”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Having been here for coffee a number of times, headed back finally for dinner.
We were underwhelmed (sadly)
Highlights were the starters and puddings.
Mains left a lot to be desired.
Wine choices massively overpriced and of low quality (house wines)
Staff were on the whole fairly miserable with one notable exception - he really stood out against the bland backdrop of his colleagues (and the fish).
Makes you realise that London dining scene is really rather good!
Will stick to coffee, tea and cakes at Marlow & Sons from now on.

Unpretentious with delicious food - a winning combo! Portions were not large - they were just right for tasting and sharing a little. Although one in our party loved his meal so much it was gone before we could taste it! We went for the brick chicken and were disappointed that it was not on the menu the night we were there. We had a few different oysters - cannot remember which ones, but they were all great. Our one non-oyster eater ordered the olives which were plentiful and served warm. In fact it was such a generous portion that we shared it with the table next to us! The food was local and seasonal - loved that fresh corn and peaches which are perfect right now were represented. Their duck, lamb and fish were all nicely done. Well worth a visit.

“Very enjoyable Brooklyn restaurant”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Stumbled upon this while walking around Brooklyn in the summer heat. It was like a little oasis in the desert. Small tavern-style restaurant with a straight to the point menu which changes daily. The duck liver pate was awesome and oysters were super fresh. The brick chicken was so good, crisp skin and tender meat although it was a little uncooked in the middle. The staff gave us a pie on the house which we demolished in no time. I would return again and recommend this fantastic place to anyone.
