My friends and I tried Dressler for the first time last weekend and we were gifted with one of the best meals we've all had in a long time. Each dish was executed perfectly; even the simple mixed greens salad was dressed with just enough herbs and acid to make it stand out. Some must-trys: pan-roasted scallop, day boat cod with succotash, Berkshire pork chop & belly (should be named best dish in NYC!), crispy artichoke side dish. Given all that, we somehow managed to have just enough room for dessert, and the caramel trio proved to be the perfect ending. Service was warm and professional, and the restaurant itself felt very comfortable. Definitely a top place in Williamsburg!
Easily my favorite restaurant EVER!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dressler, it is perfection. The food is incredible, everything i've ever eaten there has left me ranting about how good it was for days. Save room for dessert for sure, the bread pudding is beyond ridiculous and hazelnut semifreddo is also freaking amazing. The price of food is very low compared to other restaurants on par with this one, great value. Go for dinner, brunch is delish, although pretty much the same as sister restaurant Dumont, which is actually my favorite brunch spot, best eggs bennedict ever. Great interior, especially the gorgeous bar, lighting is cozy, the one negative thing I will say is that sometimes the waitress is a bit cold, although the host is very charming. They also sell out of dishes on busy night which can make you sad if you have favorites, but every substitute dish I've ordered has been so good that it's made me glad that they ran out of what I actually wanted! If you don't live in Brooklyn, this one is definitly worth the trek!
Elegant, exciting dishes, served attitude free (in williamsburg!)

the refined interior is an excellent match to the menu which is an array of mind boggling combinations of american cuisine coupled with almost every influence you can imagine. The professional waitstaff is attentive, polite, and void of smug-ness. Although frequently refered to as "pricey", the portions are fair to bulging, and the flavors compensate any shortcomings... currently enjoying their first anniversary, i hope it's not the last... a real gem, with a menu that is truly one of a kind...
