Food and service was amazing

It’s was good everything was perfect the food was delicious and drinks very nice
Food and ambiance was great. Service was a little slow.Overall the food and drinks were good. Will definitely return
I was really excited to try out this restaurant as it was shared with me by multiple persons. My excitement dwindled quickly upon arrival to the restaurant. I requested standard seating and was told that there was only availability in the bar area on the high stools although I saw open seating on the other side of the restaurant. While sitting there the owner/chef of the restaurant passed right by our table and didn't say a word. You would think since this is a new establishment that he would at least wave or say hello and thank you for coming but instead he looked and turned his head. We saw our drinks sitting at the bar as staffed carried on conversations and no one made an effort to find our server or bring them over. So much for teamwork. It appears our waiter was busy serving others and this continued throughout the night. After having our appetizers we waited at least 1 and a 1/2 hours to receive our meal. During this time the waiter continued to pass by but would not make eye contact and eventually after beckoning him and inquiring about our entrées his response was oh you guys didn't get your food. The manager then came over and said he would look into it. We received our food a few minutes later and he explained that perhaps another server picked up my dish which was the stuffed snapper. He tried to rectify the situation by comping 2 drinks but it still didn't make up for the inconvenience. Our reservation was 4:45 and we never left there until after 8 o'clock not by choice but because of how long everything took. We ordered the codfish fritters, stuff macaroni & cheese balls, the oxtail, and the stuffed snapper. The food was subpar and not worth the wait. I will not recommend this establishment nor patronize it again.
Experience was very good
The meals were delicious! The staff was polite and helpful plus the service was very good. Classy setting with great music playing at just the right volume. I will definitely revisit to sample other dishes on the menu!
The food was great, Jamaican Caribbean...Very tasty and good portions. The atmosphere and ambience suited our moment "bday celebration", the dress code was casual chic, an upscale feel. The bar area is definitely ample and well appointed. Will visit again.
Beautiful Resturant… I love it
Very good vibes and food
Good was great. Our server Tasha was very helpful. I would recommend this restaurant.
This was My 2nd time there. We Had a great time! Service and food was amazing
Great food and service. Been here before and it never disappoints. Will be going back
Great food and close to Barclays center. Very happy we chose it.
Definitely had a great time. I appreciated them accommodating my family and I. Well be returning.
To start our wait time to be seated was 20-30 min. Not sure why when i reserved my parents bday dinner a week in advance. Also, the restaurant was practically empty. Food is good. Restaurant needs to make sure they have the basic beverages available to customers . Seemed like what my guests wanted, they didn’t have.
Service could have been better. No excuse to wait 25-30 min to receive a bill. I’m guessing it must have been an off day for the restaurant. I picked this restaurant based off good reviews. I might try to dine here again.
Very excited to try The Simpson. Hadn’t had authentic Jamaican food in a long time. The Honey curry wings appetizer was delicious! A very unique flavor, fried to perfection.
This was my first time at The Simpsons and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent, the ambience was nice and classy, the server and host were gracious and very helpful. I had the oxtails with butter beans with a side of macaroni pie. My sister went for the bone-in ribeye. All of the food was very well seasoned and flavorful while cooked to perfection. You could tell the ribeye had been marinated because the flavor was throughout the meat. The drinks were also on point - not watered down. We even ordered food to take home so we could try more of the menu. Let me just say the jerk wings were superb. I have already recommended this place to several of my friends. It would also be a great, convenient location for events and fellowships. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was fantastic poor service. Chef was fantastic
The restaurant was very good the greeting was on point attention to customer was very good service was excellent The meals was excellent, I would recommend it as well as the best Caribbean restaurant to visit
I had a very Pleasant experience and will be back thank you.
Environment, Service, and Food was environment was excellent.
Host was amazing, the wait staff was friendly. It was my first experience dining at Chef Simpsons restaurant. The food was pretty good my jerk wings were flavorful put temperature wise could have been better. The cod fritters were okay, the macaroni pie was very good,, plantains were delicious. My friends salmon entree was delicious, my niece loved the carrot juice cocktail, Avocado toast she wasn't crazy about. My other friend said that her loaded baked potato was good but could have used butter and sour cream. The rum punch was outstanding. I will say that I caught a view of chef which made my day and I appreciated the staff acknowledged my birthday early.
I went there to celebrate my birthday.. The staff was amazing.. The food was even better.. It was 1st time going there and I loved it..
This was a repeat for me and I will absolutely go back. Recommendation is to go early, as the place can get a bit noisy later
Food was awesome. A bit over priced but in some areas. Overall an excellent experience.
We traveled from Pa to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was amazing. The food was everything that we expected. Parking was great. We even took food home. The portion sizes were great. We will definitely return. I can’t wait for Chef Simpson to cook for us personally, one day!
This is my second time and We got seated right away, it took about ten minutes for the waiter to come over, when he did he took over order. The drinks took five minutes the appetizers took another 20 minutes the food took 30mins and the waiter never came and said it was busy in the kitchen, I call him over and the when he told us that it was busy. When I finally got our food it was not hot.
My first experience was way better that's y I went back the second time
Had an amazing dinner for our mom. The food was everything we hoped it would be…Delicious! Will be back soon.
Service was real good. Food was delicious. Will definitely recommend to others.
Second time coming and this time to celebrate my mother’s birthday. I spoke so highly about this place but this second time around our waiter was not so friendly. The food was great! We didn’t like how our second round of drinks tasted and instead of apologizing and asking to fix it he just took them and didn’t care. His demeanor was not very inviting and we had to wait a very long time for him to come over after trying to get his attention. When i made a reservation i specifically put we are celebrating a birthday in case they do anything special. We were going to leave but my 3 year old insisted we sing happy birthday. I inquired with him (waiter) if they do anything special for birthdays he said yes but we were to inform the hostess in a very annoyed tone. This tone was pretty much his tone the entire time he “serviced” us. I stated i did in my reservation. Again we would have left solely off of the service he provided but my daughter insisted. This restaurant is still beautiful And great but i think his service should be addressed.
Appetizers arrived cold. Drinks were watered down and the food was mediocre.
Waitress Sasha was amazing. Quantity of food was great, price was expensive but food tastes great. Party of 7 celebrating a birthday and Sasha made each one of us feel like her family even the kids.
Second time visiting and the experience just keeps on getting better. My daughter & I enjoyed the food and ambiance of this restaurant wholeheartedly. Our Host (Linden) was phenomenal. He was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and accurately confident in his recommendations of the food menu and cocktails. This is something I HIGHLY value in host/ hostess service. Everything was 100% definitely look forward to our next dining experience at The Simpson. THANK YOU LINDEN!
My original reservation was for 7/5/21 as I had a friend visiting from out to town. It came highly recommended from a friend that's a Chef, but they called and asked that I reschedule as they'd be closed on Monday. I did and was certainly not disappointed. My friend and I order several dishes off the menu Bammy Ackee & Saltfish Bites, Cod Fish Fritters with Scotch Bonnet Aioli, Slow Braised Oxtail and Butter Beans w/ Rice & Peas & Seasonal Veggies, & St. Louis Bourbon BBQ Ribs w/ Loaded Potatoes. Drinks were POSH Island. Who could forget Desserts: Black Cake with Rum Sauce & Cheesecake (MUST HAVES). Both were great but the cheesecake literally exploded in my mouth on contact---yummmmyy. Everything was absolutely delicious and needless to say we couldn't eat all. The service was superb and the staff attentive. And the best part we got to meet the Chef himself. Thanks for being gracious Chef Simpson. Definitely will dine here again.
The Jerk Salmon wasn't what I expected, very disappointed. The Jasmine Rice was chewy and cold.. The codfish fritters was too doughy inside. Won't have these again
The restaurant is nice, great vibe. The food is good, but not great. The menu was very underwhelming. Considering that it is a Jamaican restaurant, located o=in Brooklyn, there are plenty of mom and pop restaurants with better food. The drinks were really good. I am not saying that I will not return, but I would most likely visit for a seat at the bar for drinks and appetizers.
Amazing time celebrating my graduation and mother’s birthday here. The staff was so friendly from start to finish. The curry salmon was bomb!! Went on a Saturday evening with no crazy lines or wait time. Will return.
I would recommend the Simpson Restaurant and Bar for dining out, the food, ambience, the service was exemplary. From the moment our party of four arrived, we were happy with the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. Their jerk chicken was delicious. The ambience of the restaurant was very nice. Our waiter was very attentive while serving our table. To finish off our dinner, we ordered the caramel cheesecake which was so delicious. As a group of 4 we cannot wait to come back for a second time.
