Best Brunch deal in NYC (possibly in the world)!!!
Great tapas great meal. One of our go-to’s any day of the week
food, service, drinks - everything is great! try all the tapas & the lava cake
LOVE this restaurant! If you are debating coming here, just do it! You won't regret it.
The staff is super nice as well.
Best value, food, and service in Brooklyn! Amazing happy hour.
We came here for a birthday dinner and tried about 1/3 of the menu. Food was very average. The meat and cheese plate, bravas and squid ink paella were good but the rest of the items were below average for the price and for the nyc standard. The cauliflower was bland despite the bechamel sauce, the eggplant was soupy, the pork ribs were tender but grossly under seasoned and the steak tartar with bone marrow was very plain and boring. The ambiance was good and the service was standard, but once again nothing to rave about. I came here expecting more given the location and talk about this place but was disappointed. I suppose it is a good place to get the meat and cheese plate paired with some wine but the kitchen is severely lacking in character. I would recommend offering a more limited menu with some fine tuned items as it would lead to a more enjoyable dining experience for patrons.
Omg the oxtail and seafood paella was to die for. The food overall was great! Will def recommend and come back for more! Authentic Spanish food!!
Oxtail was incredible. Service was a little slow
I have been to El Born 4 times and they never disappointed. I intend to start bringing my clients here for lunch as well. The team there is top notch. Extremely patient and friendly and the quality of the food is always great. Every man should have a go-to restaurant. Enter El Born
The garden was very cozy. Staff is always so friendly - we go there quite a bit but this was the first time we made a reservation and I'm so happy we did! They were very busy but the staff always makes us feel welcomed. Cocktails were terrific - try the Rita or if you're a bourbon drinker "Avio de Paper". Nobody makes Brussels Sprouts like them and the Patatas Bravas are amazing. We'll be back again and again
Excellent food, though I would have like a wider selection to choose from
I have already recommended it and I will definitely go back
Best bottomless brunch in Greenpoint! The black rice is also our favorite. Super recommended!
This place was the best! The back patio makes it feel like you are not in the middle of Greenpoint - it was a bit crowded with the tables quite close together but overall I really enjoyed the ambiance - the service was great and for 45pp for the prix fixe, we dined like kings - I used to go to Barcelona often for work and obvious haven't been since 2019 - this was a great way to get transported back - delicious and serene :)
Excellent food with warm friendly staff and service!
Food is good but not spectacular. There were no staff at the wait area and had to go to the bar just to get their attention. Despite advanced reservation, it took 15-20mins to get use seated. In the menu the disclaimer said paella takes 20mins, it arrived after 45mins. Overall it wasn't fun.
Not enough servers on shift. A meal that should’ve lasted an hour an a half lasted over 3 hours. Overall though the food was delicious and very happy with the bottomless brunch menu.
They were not staffed well-enough for the chaos that was brunch
SO YUMMY! Brussel sprouts were to DIE for. The extensive Gin & Tonic menu was a bonus. Wait staff super friendly and actually from Spain. Nice crowd, love Sunday brunch.... highly recommended.
Great food and service, but music didn't fit the ambience- more YMCA but in a Barcelonian restaurant.
Quickly becoming my favorite Spanish restaurant in town.
Great food and service. Opted for the chef’s menu instead of the unlimited tapas on a Tuesday and it was worth every dish. Great wine selection as well.
The staff was very inviting, and helped break down the menu. I also must say with the utmost confidence they make the best brussels I’ve ever had in my LIFE.
And the bottomless mimosas were perfect.
I recommend the bottomless brunch menu. We staying at the back patio and it was really charming
We had a great dining experience. Wonderful atmosphere and very attentive service.
Best Spanish tapas in NYC. Wonderful and unique.
Very delicious, really lovely setting in the back patio, awesome all around.
Amazing food and service!
So delicious!!! Loved the food and atmosphere. Definitely a place to try out.
One of the best brunch that I had in so long. Food was great, the bottomless drinks were just a perfect match, and the paella was just incredible. Really friendly staff, good prices and great food.
One of our favorite places.
We love this neighborhood joint. Friendly, delicious. I'm only sad it took us so long to try it!
Food was fantastic! Would highly recommend the brussel sprouts, bacon wrapped dates, and Spanish omelette. Will definitely be back soon!
The papas bravas.. sooo good! Would deff come back again.
Great dining experience and excellent food. Brought me back to Spain with flavors, but provided subtle NY twists to classic dishes. We’re new to Williamsburg and will definitely be back soon!
Amazingly accommodating and food was excellent. 10/10
Amazing place with amazing food. It really feels like Spanish food!
Very solid Spanish place with great service and fun vibe. Back garden is great and can't wait to sit indoors now too!
Amazing as always! Great value and very authentic Spanish food.
Expect the door to the patio was always open so we were freezing
