12th Street Bar & Grill
Posted by A patron no more on 03/07/2014
What a disappointing dining experience we had last night. The food in general was mediocre, but the lamb chop special our friend requested medium rare was served well done. The waiter offered to have it redone, said it wouldn't take long, but it did, and the chops were...raw! Round three --back to the kitchen for more fire, and what do you know, they came back well done. Since there were only two other tables filled, it's not as if the,kitchen staff was too busy to be attentive. At this point, 3of us had finished our dinner, our plates were removed, and our friend had a sad looking platter of charred chops in front of him which he could not eat. No apologies, so we suggested the bar comp our non eater a sambucca with coffee for dessert. Would you believe, the sambucca was turned--pure alcohol. This is our last visit to what once was a park slope gem.

The side bar at the 12th Street Bar and Grill used to be the best place around. The bar tenders were friendly, knew your name and your drink order. It was a local place that really made you feel at home. Lately there has been a complete turnover of the bar staff. The new staff is surly, rude, and makes no effort to know their customers. People who have been regulars for years have stopped going. I really hope the owners take notice soon and fix this growing problem before it is too late. This place can be a neighborhood gem, but ownership has to get the new bar staff in check and they need to stop alienating their long time clients.

I live in the neighborhood, and I am glad to have 12th street so close by - it's a great, reliable spot. The main dining room is a little staid, but it's pretty and bright -- nice when you've got little ones or older guests. The food is great -- I've never had anything that wasn't delicious (and HUGE portions) -- and my favorite thing is that the exact same menu is available in the much warmer and more relaxed pub around the corner. yay 12th street!

Okay, that's a little harsh, but the atmosphere really did remind me of any chain like that. We stopped here on our way to the movies, and it was actually a pleasant surprise. Nothing extraordinary; just solid, traditional food. If you're in the mood for that, it's a good option.

12th Street Bar & Grill is on 8th Avenue, apart from the hustle and bustle of 7th and 5th avenues, so it unfortunately doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves. But it's so much better than most of the highly rated restaurants on 7th and 5th. AMAZING food you HAVE to try the mussels in a curry cream sauce (unbelievable!). The service was fantastic very attentive, friendly and informative about the menu and they played great music the whole time we were there. The prices are very reasonable considering the high quality of the food. Besides the mussels, the hanger steak and the pork are also excellent. I highly recommend going here for any occasion; it would be perfect for a romantic date. Definitely check this place out.I promise you will not be disappointed.

Went for brunch this morning and it was just kinda meh. Wish we had just gone to Applewood like we usually do. The Bloody Mary was nasty. No flavor. Served in a tiny glass. Got the Eggs In Purgatory. Bread was soggy. The flavors were ok but just kind of a gross texture. Probably would have been better if they had served it on a crunchy bread or maybe added all of the eggs and sauces just before service. Oh well. Back to Applewood we go. Overall it wasn't the worst thing I've ever had but with so many other incredible options in the Slope, odds are we won't be going back.

Our server was a bit weird at the beginning but seemed to warm up to us a bit. I chose the restaurant for the prices and was very pleasantly surprised to find the food quality and preparation to be excellent. I live in Manhattan but if I lived in Park Slope, I'd be a regular at 12th Street B & G.
