Many kinks have been worked out!

Early reviews said the service was terrible. We went on a Sunday evening at 5 pm. There was a 45-60 minute wait. We happily hung by the bar and got drinks. The wait staff was incredibly nice and apologetic when they had to scoot by us to get to the office. Our wait was maybe about 35-40 minutes and we got the best seat in the house. Our server, Ally, was attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and fun, and offered excellent recommendations. We stayed for over 3 hours and were NEVER made to feel that they wanted to give up our seat. We had a great experience and will definitely return soon!

A total mess

What a mess. How does a new restaurant operate like this??? When we went, there was a 4 hour wait for a table. The "Hostess/Wait list Operator" told us the kitchen couldn't deal with the crowds. Tip for the owners: Get rid of the food and call yourself "Brooklyn Bucket O' Beer". You're welcome.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
