First of all, the food is awesome. They're French, they know what they're doing. I love the fact that they kept that south of France ambiance in a restaurant that is in the heart of Williamsburg. I highly recommend Jazz music on Saturday night!

We were not rushed and the food was good. The problem was either our server or the kitchen or both. Not particularly busy ... Took twenty minutes for our drinks, it was an imposition to ask the server for napkins and eating utensils ... Forgot one meal and sides orders, had to demand bread and was not given enough for...

A gem in Brooklyn. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. My daughter and I slit an order of snails. She pronounced them to be the best that she has g=had (and she has spent time in France). I had the traditional mussels and she had cassoulet. Both were excellent. My husband had steak frites and the fries were... More

Super French style restaurant with outside areas. Atmospheric and live music. Food good and generous, my beef croustin was a bit dry. Selection of beers and wines good. Give it a go.

My boyfriend and I went there 2 times, once for lunch and once for dinner. The back garden is absolutely beautiful! Perfect on hot summer days. The food was great, drinks as well. A nice hidden gem in busy Williamsburg.

If you want to try the best mussels around the city, go to Fada. Good variation of main courses in a french style, also the wines are awesome. Try to go either Thursday, Friday or Saturday: live jazz, gypsy jazz, reggae... Relax environment, with a beautiful back garden

One of my friends took me here for Brunch. I just love Williamsburg and this restaurant has so delicous brunches...Sitting outside in the "garden" on a hot summer day is just the perfect way to start the weekend!
