Had the tasting menu and loved everything! It was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in Brooklyn. My only negative was that even though we made a reservation, we were seated right in front of the door on a cold night. Definitely ask for a table away from the door of its winter.

Must try "spontaneous tasting menu"~ Bellisimo! Basically getting the dishes from the menu but the surprise is which ones ;) fettuccini with peekycrab, hamachi, butternut squash soup, porkling, and something with root museli! Chocolate dessert with toasted quinoa~

We had a pretty mediocre experience here. Long story short, my wife made reservations for our anniversary, in which she selected one of the tasting menus in advance (not the items on the menu, just the number of courses) and during said call she said that she didn't like melon when asked if there are any dietary restrictions or preferences. On the night of the dinner three of the seven courses were melon-based. E.g., watermelon salad. It wasn't the end of the world, and everything else was very nice, but we paid several hundred dollars for that meal. At a restaurant of similar price like the Modern or Dovetail or the Nomad, it would have been completely different. If you want to be an expensive restaurant, you need to set yourself apart with your service. You can't fake it.

This is just the restaurant you want to succeed is JUST INCREDIBLY pretentious. First they bring 3 menus all drinks and NO Food. We had to ask for a food menu >>>ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? The waitress rolls her eyes when we say we don't want to have drinks. (REALLY???) Then the oyster come ok fine. they are good but the places with $1 oysters are just as good and more fun. Then... we order takes a while to get our food,\. They serve focaccia bread warm, nice but horribly over salted. Then a taste of soup fine, we get our meal 18&16 orders of pasta( 1 cup servings). Duck Bolognese and crab lemon fettuccine.OK first bite great, 2nd bit OMG they dumped a ridiculous amount of salt. My son finish the 1/2 cup serving of Pasta for me. It was hideous. Im sorry but you can go to Paza Pasta down the street have a lovely homemade fresh pasta and a lovely person serving for $10. The dessert was good the apple pie and ice cream but frankly this place is what is making Brooklyn's Smiths street a pretentious bombastic mess. Stick to Provence en Boite, or Paza Pasta or Dassara this place is for Hoity-Toities Wanna bees that have never been to 4 season or Le Cirque or Cote Basque, much less any other 5 star restaurants. Im sorry but the salt level should not make you drink 4 glasses of water. A waste of $72 bucks. It is all that is going wrong with Brooklyn

Absolutely fantastic eating experience. Everything was great. Every course was a surprise. Served with a wink and flavors that excited the palate in unique ways. Seemingly simple ingredients are blended by Battersby to transform simple to complex. Well done. I will be back for my next special occasion.

Had the tasting menu in the pleasant back garden. Service was slightly snooty but very efficient and capable. I loved several of the items we were brought. Wild striped bass was excellent and the lamb was as well. Others didn't work quite so well. Dessert was fabulous, involving a variety of flavors with melon, cucumber and a drizzle of a spicy yogurt dressing. Overall I recommend and would return.

A jewel in Carroll Gardens. The place is tiny (24 seats with nearly half at the bar) but the cuisine is exalted. A foodie destination of the first order. The tasting menu (5 or 7 course options) with wine pairing is one of the best meals , and deals, in New York and the option with wine pairing raises the experience to the ethereal. Limited reservations by email only, so prepare to wait.
