Buzzy, busy, trendy and clever. This is a great place for brunch. The menu is not extensive, but there is something for everyone. We were lucky to get a table on a Saturday morning having just walked in off the street. Lovely spot in a lovely part of New York. Recommended.

Great service and the place is lovely. Brunch options are great. We had the pancakes (quite big and yummy), the trout and the duck hash. Highly recommend the duck hash... with greens and poached egg! (My favorite!). Prices are reasonable and don't forget dessert - they have great options... I had the Panna cotta (really good). Finish brunch with a... More

There were many folks waiting for brunch last Sunday. They were all treated to excellent cooking, wonderful service and a delightful environment as a part of the new and exciting Brooklyn. Great drinks were available excellently prepared at the bar. Fun and exotic courses like shrimp and grits and scrambled eggs and chevre with lovely roasted potatoes are popular items... More

We started with a dozen oysters on the half shell which were fresh and tasty. The spicy blood orange margarita was a nice surprise. Not too sweet or hot. The dinner portions are a bit small but all were delicious. I will go back.

Brunch in Brooklyn! As a west coast boy, wandering around Brooklyn looking for good eats is an affair of the heart. I settled on Colonie in Brooklyn Heights after an unnecessarily exhaustive search through reviews and online map locations close-ish to my hotel. (admit you do all this too.) It’s a crowded spot with lots of good Brooklyn energy and... More

Really enjoyed this restaurant. After a day of hiking we needed a good drink and some food! We ordered the Brussels sprouts, carrots, sea scallops, spaghetti with squid ink and rock shrimp, Campanelli for dinner along with a nice bottle of wine plus a rye manhattan. For dessert we highly recommend the sticky date cake and the doughnuts! Outstanding. Presentation... More

Charming Brooklyn spot- lots of candles, plant wall,narrow and cozy tables. The food is really first rate but I have found the staff to be a bit distant. Not as warm as the decor and atmosphere would suggest. Vegetarian choices are amazing - use of sauces and finishes of a dish are exceptional. And always treat yourself to the mini... More

My wife and I got here a bit before six in the evening and were seated but told the kitchen didn't open until six but the bar was open so we could have a drink while we waited. And wait we did. After about five minutes I flagged down a waiter and asked if I could get a drink. He... More

Very good but not 5 stars. Excellent cocktails. Great cheese/charcuterie boards. Very good crostini and salads. However, the pastas fall a little short of where everything else is on the menu. In any case, still very much worth visiting.
