Excellent Food, Great Service, Wonderful Music
By victoryjammer on 4/8/2012
I can't say enough about our evening at the Superfine. I love this place! What a great feel- the bar, pool hall, and dining are nicely integrated, yet also have their own space. The band was excellent and could be enjoyed in all corners of the room. I really appreciate the professional sound man that kept the levels appropriate- table conversation did not require screaming, yet we could hear the singer well. Not many places can pull that off! The food was superb and i love the open kitchen with garlic wafting throughout. I highly recommend checking out the Superfine!
Excellent service. Friendly Bar Staff

I was surprised to read the reviews about the unfriendly staff. My experience was extremely welcoming, pleasant and down to earth. The bartender who served us was very kind and accommodating to my friend's and I. Great atmosphere and place for a business meeting or drinks with friends.
Great place...horrible service
By 1wineguy on 7/18/2010
We went here because it was listed as a critics pick, well in my opinion they were way off. We had a drink at the bar which was great and the place is kind of cool, but once we sat down...it was downhill from there. It took 10 minutes to get acknowledged and after that she disappeared, despite many attempts to get her attention she did not come back. Finally after 30 minutes the manager came over and told us it would be a few minutes as they ran out of an item...I ordered a salad? Should have left, but we were hungry so we stayed. Finally 50 minutes later we got our salads and then 15 minutes after that our entree. My wifes veggies were cold after all that...fyi the waitress still has not come back. If she had come back and communicated with us about the delays, it may have made it easier to deal with...no tip for her! Would not go back, nor would I recommend!
The BEST Fish Taco
By jengerena on 8/30/2009
Based off of a critics pick here on NY Mag we checked out Superfine for Sunday Brunch. We headed over around 2ish and we were seated and greeted immediately. I had the Fish Taco's with a Stella.. I can not say enough how delicious the Fish Taco was. Plus we were treated to live bluegrass music. Can it get any better?
Cheap beer, good food with an eclectic ambiance

I love this place, I think it is a gem in the growing area of DUMBO. I have been several times and I have never had a bad experience. They change the menu regularly, food is good, you can snag a Heineken for $4 and the decor and ambiance are pretty inviting. It is definitely not the fanciest place, but it is a great place to hang on a weekend or unwind afterwork (which is why I went...on a Thursday). I do wish they gave individual menus - they have a easel that they prop on the chair with the menu items. Overall, it is a great place to have in the favorites of your iPhone - you cannot go wrong with this joint...
All time record for waiting for food.

This place lives in infamy amongst my friends. We have renamed it Super Sucks. I have never waited so long for food. It got so bad that the people below us, who were there for a birthday dinner, started eating the cake they brought because they were so hungry and they sent a piece up to us, which we fought over like animals.... When we finally got our food and we asked what the problem was, the waitress (who was for some unexplained reason wearing a Fez) told us that there wasn't any problem. I mean seriously it was like 90 minutes. No apology, nothing. Its not like we ordered Peking Duck or some special souffle - it was pasta and burgers.
A Definte pass.

although there food was fresh and Delicious, the services was incredibly horrid. the bartenders were bitchy and rude. they couldn't even make proper mojitos. they even tried to overcharge us on things that we order such as the beer which is 6 dollars and they charged us 8 and the drinks that were 10 they charged us 11. this was my second time there and my last.
Had a blast---naysayers dumb

I just moved into the neighborhood and finally got to try Superfine for the first time. I have been looking forward to going for quite some time despite the mixed reviews on this site. We went for Sunday brunch (called and made a reservation for noon at 11 am) and had a fantastic all around experience. A local Brooklyn band was playing some old timey music and everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves. Service was fantastic and attentive yet relaxed at the same time. The kitchen was visible from my table, which I always consider a plus, and the food was delicious. I had the pancakes of the day and my girlfriend had the special omelet. We loved them both and definitely plan on coming back. People were playing pool while waiting for a table, and the bar was full of reservation-less brunch goers. Cannot wait to go back.
Not at all mixed ...

Oh, the tyranny of popular reviews. I don't understand how people could have had such negative experiences at Superfine. Maybe their experiences with "rude" wait staff and "bad" food is more a reflection of their own attitudes and expectations. We had nothing but great experiences at the restaurant. And we have gone there many, many times. We even come all the way to dumbo just to have brunch or dinner at Superfine. We just like the ambiance, the food, the accommodating staff, the live music - all in all a well-rounded experience. I recommend it.
Your sense of entitlement needs to stop
By Ingmar on 3/7/2008
Slow service? Hipster servers? What's wrong will all of you!?! Listen, if you want ultra efficient service and a wait staff dressed in white and black, take your ass back to snooze inducing UES/NJ/LI/Wall Street. If you're down for a restaurant that has a soul, isn't cookie cutter and has amazing food, then chill out and enjoy Superfine. I went last Saturday night, took my time and had the most amazing orecchiette alla Norma of my life! Plus, the bartenders were hot!!!
