Atlantic Ave Surprise

Who knew? An outstanding restaurant in an otherwise mediocre landscape. Watching your meal being prepared from the ringside kitchen seating would almost have been pleasure enough, but then it's topped by the taste of food you can relish. Don't miss the caramel custard doughnuts!

Finally a good, very good, restaurant in Brooklyn Heights. Having been there many times since it first open, I can honestly say the food has yet to disappoint. Creative simple dishes that taste good. The restaurant has a great casual vibe (with the only negative is how loud it can get in there).
My Favorite Spot!

I've only lived in the neighborhood for 3 months but I've been to Colonie at least 6 times. The food is always amazing and the service/staff is great as well. The servers are warm yet professional, not of the haughty, Williamsburg-type found in many of the restaurants in the area. I love sitting at the chef's table and watching them prepare all the dishes. It's a bit small and they don't take reservations for 2, but they are always very accommodating and have offered to call when there's a spot ready.

We have just returned from the most delicious dinner at Colonie on Atlantic Avenue. Unbelievable! Am so happy that this restaurant has come to Brooklyn Heights, with such a renowned chef to boot! Brad McDonald, we've just found out, has worked at Essex house, Noma and Pe Se in New York. In a nutshell, you can tell. We are blown away! Such friendly people, such esquiste food and only a block away from our house! Brooklyn, with this new restaurant, a new Barneys Co-op and the Waterfront Park starting to look so fabulous, you are really shining!
Exactly what this neighborhood needed!

I've lived in BK Heights for nearly two years and nowhere else in the hood offers what Colonie does so well: European style portions, amazing flavor combinations, and superb cocktails to boot. The atmosphere is minimal, but wonderfully charming suiting brunch crowds and late night romantics alike. It truly is a gem of a place.
