Had dinner here on a Tuesday evening and was absolutely delighted with the whole experience. A very attractive. low-lit room with friendly staff. All four of us were very happy with our food choices. My ribs had such an incredible flavour with effort also made with presentation and texture. Loved them. Interesting beer options too.

Three of us dined at Rye. We started with the brussels sprouts and oysters. The brussels sprouts were the best I have ever tasted. They would make a hater of brussels sprouts love them they were so tasty. The oysters were very fresh. For an entree we had the rabbit, duck, and lamb shank. All were superb. In addition we... More

The decor is a little bit like New Orleans but the food isn't. Try the house made donuts - they are more like big donut holes. If you like cake donuts, you will love these, hot and fresh. The service was good and the server was knowledgeable about the menu as well as early afternoon wine/champagne selections. All in all,... More

Picked this place from a Telegraph review and we were very happy we did. The food, service and ambience were excellent and seemed to personify what's great about Brooklyn. Get here if you can. The chicken dish was amazing!!!

Group of four went to dinner...so we had the option of trying four different entrees. Short ribs and meatloaf sandwich were amazing. Highly recommend either entree. The warm peach cobbler with homemade raspberry ice cream was the best way to end the meal. Will return the next time I am in Brooklyn.

My friends and I found this place and it is a very romantic and intimate place to eat. There is a good wine, drink, and beer menu. The selection of food is pretty good. I had the salmon which was very good. I had a chance to try my friends short ribs and I probably should have ordered this as... More

We had a fun dinner here over the 4th Weekend. Service was excellent and none of the dishes disappointed. We ordered a variety of appetizers and shared a main course. We loved the eclectic flatware and furnishings.

My mum and I visited this restaurant when we were staying in Williamsburg. The staff were great, very attentive without being over powering and the food was amazing. So well thought through. Good for a chilled out experience.
