    It was a decent meal and everything is just as expected for price like this. But there is really no surprising ingredients nor cooking techniques comparing to other hyped up fine dining restaurants. Service was not quite Michelin standard. We ordered wine paring and the sommelier was not quite familiar with some of the bottles and he poured wine into glass that was used for last bottle. Very unprofessional.

    Food was excellent but service was terrible. No hot towels after finger food. Put new utensils before clear the table. Explain the food with mono tone and especially girls in glasses. Leave my water glass empty.Only one time that waitress put attention is when she explained “how to tip”

    Our chef's table with wine pairings was a truly memorable experience. Not only were the flavors fantastic, but the creativity was also second to none. All of the courses were incredible, but the star was probably the Japanese buckwheat frozen souffle.

    I am so disappointed about the food and service. It’s my fault that I didn’t tell them that I don’t take lamb. I was thinking they would change another course for me. The servicer just told me “If u don’t take this, your friend can take this.” During the whole meal, I felt like I was chasing by servers. They gave me two courses, even three courses together. It was like they were waiting for me to leave. I tried many Michelin restaurant all over the world. I don’t think it is worthy Michelin three stars.

    Overall great experience. Few dishes were amazing such as tuna or Aji dish. Few questions on using Madai as fish course is the right choice when you are charging $420? Brioche for Uni when you have amazing Shari. And the most disappointment came to stingy pour of wines. I would recommend to go to Perse.

    Food was excellent. Went there to celebrate my wife’s birthday and was asked if wanted a glass of champagne for celebrating the birthday which, naive of me, I thought was on the house (84$ for 2 glasses). Still water 51$ but it’s a 3 Michelin star. Food was flawless except the soufflé dessert, a bit bland on flavor. The wine list, extensive and really good. We had a Villa Tondonia that was excellent. Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We walked in thinking this will be a 3-star Michelin dining experience, but it turned out to be just a 1 star experience at most. We've been to quite few Michelin restaurants before, and this restaurant is definitely not on par with any of the ones we tried recently. We arrived just in time at 5pm, and we were just greeted asking if we want water and then we asked for the wine menu. There were no welcome drinks like other Michelin restaurants would serve. Then another waiter came and asked if we would like to add supplements; we declined the supplements because we didn't feel like we were getting anything that was outside of what they already provided. We moved on to having the first dish around 6pm, and the first 4 dishes were worth the wait (flavor profile-wise and presentation-wise). The rest of the dishes were just okay and nothing extraordinary. Our waiter did come back to ask if we wanted to add the supplement, and I said yes to adding caviar because the first caviar dish was very satisfying, but the second dish with the supplemental caviar was just mediocre. We ordered a bottle of white wine, and a glass of bordeaux for the red meat. The waiter forgot about our bordeaux so then they offered a complimentary glass of wine to us, but that ended to be a burgundy! Unsure if this is normal for Brooklyn Fare, but I really have not been to a restaurant at this caliber that had such poor service and lack of creativity in food.

    This is the second time I visited this restaurant but probably this is my last time. The service is no longer at three starts level anymore. The first, I booked the counter for three and confirmed. Then, Chefs table sent me email saying that the counter is not availabe since there will be renovation. I udnerstand that the experience from counter or table are completely dirfferent. I asked if I can cancel but they don't let me cancel at that time. One day before the reservation, they called me to confirm for the table. I asked if I can keep my original booking at counter. However, the chelf talbe told me that it is completeluy reserved. I insisted that my original booking was counter. They told me that once the renovation was completed, they let other custombers to book the counters. When I said, it's not fair since I was forced to change to the table but actually they gave out my counter seats to others. They even told me it's ok to cancel (in one day before the reservation time!!!!!! I have visited all three stars restaulantes in the city and many in the world. This place is no at the level at all.

    Some exceptional dishes but also some way below average (in taste and combination of ingredients). Service was really poor. Quality / price is unjustifiable. Really cool entrance through the deli. Nice environment. They should also answer calls (I tried to get in touch with them multiple times to ask a couple of questions but they never picked up. I was calling during their working hours). Overall - we were expecting something much better

    This is not just a dining experience, this is culinary craftsmanship/arts at its best where the chef is constantly at work for you to observe in action. With over 30 3-Michelin star establishments under our belts and innumerable 1-2 stars that we sometimes think deserve more attention, we still think this makes it into our top 10 or even top-5 experiences ever.

    Service was mediocre - sat next to a person that clearly exhibited COVID symptoms throughout the 3-hr meal. It is very likely that I was exposed and will have to test. Additionally, had to report it to work and make adjustments to my plans for the next two weeks due to potential exposure.

    Modern contemporary cuisine with some Japanese seafood ingredients. Well-balanced chef’s tasting menu, though nothing quite innovating. Special location and good dining room interior design. Good service though sometimes lack of attention to details by service staffs. Polite and energetic management. Definitely worthy of dining.

    We enjoyed all the courses of dinner. However, we felt the service did not match the quality of the food presented. Servers were monotone, not inviting or personable. At the beginning of dinner the supplements to the menu were presented to us subtly. The server described the supplements and how it enhanced the course they were paired with. However, a little while after a gentleman came by with a box of truffles and his presentation felt more like a sales pitch. Food was presented to us elegantly at the table, however, as plates came out of the kitchen it felt more like an assembly line to each table. We opted not to do the wine tasting however, we might have ordered wine had someone come talk to us regarding the selection. The wine menu is extensive, and no one provided guidance. Not sure if they have a sommelier, because no one came over to the table. Another missed service opportunity was during the 4 dessert courses. It would of been nice to have been offered a coffee or tea to enjoy with our dessert. However, no one offered any to our table despite it being offered and served to other tables. Instead, we were greeted with the bill before we even finished our dessert courses. We have been to other restaurants on par with the Chef Table at Brooklyn Fare. The level of service at other Michelin Star restaurants we have been to far surpasses the service we received here which may be what they prefer but as a patron who is paying for a full culinary experience at this price point, I would of expected a 5 star experience all around. To sum it up, I felt their service was not of a standard of other Michelin star restaurants we have been to and our experience did not justify their price point. With so many amazing new and established restaurants in NYC with and without Michelin stars that pride themselves on pairing impeccable service with a unforgettable culinary experience, the Chefs Table at Brooklyn Fare sadly fell short and does not provide the expected experience.

    This restaurant is simply amazing! The menu was clever, but not overly so, with a great mix of ingredients that came together perfectly. The service was sublime, slick, attentive, but totally relaxed, and the setting is unusual, which adds to the drama. We can’t wait to return, this restaurant just knocked Eleven Madison off our ‘best ever’ top restaurant spot!!

    The total price Of the experience was not clear for me when i booked. Food selection May be top, but not worth the money to be paid. Any Of the top 10 restaurants are at least 50% cheaper including pairing. I am dissapointed. Many go to celebrate their birthday, there was no special for us, Just one Of the same menu desserts with a candle.
