I Love it. I have only been there for Brunch but, I hear that dinner is delish too. It is not a big place so if you are planning to go for brunch do call and make reservations.

I almost want this secret to stay a secret but the fact is: this place is really good. I tasted flavors that I haven't had before. a quaint place and the BYOB makes it even more intriguing. "Would you go on a special occasion?" the only reason I say no is because it's small and can't easily fit large groups.

When I am feeling the need to indulge in the most tasteful meal in the borough of Brooklyn, and possibly NYC, I high tail it over to Abistro. You will not be disappointed. I am a fan of the Senegalese chicken! Spread the word.

This is such a fun little nook of a place. No sign that we saw, just a charming white exterior just below Myrtle. You may get stuck hanging out in the slightly cramped "snuggle" corner, aka behind a sectional at the door, for a little while cause it gets packed but it's worth the wait. (I had to shout over the music once in a while, but the staff is cool and will turn it down if asked nicely.) We ordered all specials - hangar steak sandwich, omelet with jumbo lump crab, and eggs benedict w/ smoked salmon - such BIG and unique flavor. Lot of spice (not too spicey!) and Asian tastes. You should check the prices of specials, but the value is fantastic for the quality and quantity of food. And you can't beat BYOB. A total neighborhood spot. I freaking love Fort Greene...

A group of 7 of us ventured to Abistro from Manhattan and thought the trek was totally worth it! The great service and yummy food was continually discussed during the meal. The trout and the mussels were highlights and the prices were reasonable.

Abistro has maybe the world's best hamburger. The wait staff is so warm and inviting, you think you're with friends. I love this restaurant! It's perfect for brunch. It's like light soul food. We were seated with no problems. The food did take a while, but we enjoyed good conversation with the ower, waitress and host while we sipped their amazing coffee! Everything there is yummy goodness. I have no idea about what seasonings they use, I just know it's unique and tastey. I think it should be a critic's pick.

The best treats are the ones you discover and A Bistro is a treat worth searching out...

Words cannot explain how delicious the food is! By far the best restaurant I have ever been to...ever! But it is not only the food (even if it was it would be more than worth it) it is everything about the place. It is the atmosphere, it is the people, I would move in if I could :) My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary, Valentines Day, we have brought friends and family, I think everyone should experience such perfection!

To be quite honest, after my first dining experience at Abistro, I didn't want to tell anyone about it. Not because it was bad, but because it was so GOOD!!! I wanted to have a spot to go to that only I knew about, but after some consideration, I told everyone I knew. Food this amazing should be shared. The dishes are well seasoned and the flavors are like a tantalizing treat for your palate. The food is filling without being heavy. You must try the mussels. You'll want to drink the sauce, believe me!!! Don't leave without indulging in the bread pudding...oh, my God...I think it's time for a well deserved trip to Abistro. Tell Abdoul & Cassandra, I sent you. They are such a beautiful couple. They make you feel like your dining in their home. ENJOY!!!
