Finally, got a chance to try It and enjoyed it a lot. My friend had a burger which was yummy. I had the rabbit pot which was very rich and tasty and came with peppery greens and bread. We also shared the shishito peppers salad. Overall the food tasted very fresh, the menu def has some interesting food and the service was great. It was sad to see Raymunds go but I'm glad it's been replaced by an original restaurant.

i don't want to wait in vain for your love... or my food. said the table wait was 40 mins. we waited almsot 2 hours. ordered apps n entres as soon as we sat. apps came and were good. enteres never came! no one ever told us what was going on. finally after being there a total of 4 hours we left. They were upset that we wanted to leave. like it was perfectly normal. the food was ok but there are other places in the burg with great food and great service. i hope the owners are listening to these kinds of reviews. there are several on yelp like this. i hope they figure it out but at this point it's not worth it.

Don't listen to that guy. Anyone who says, "I wasn't full when I finished eating" or, "The portion sizes were small" simply doesn't dine very often....or at the right places. Ok sorry for the tangent but I find that Allswell, like some other favorites Diner, Marlow & Sons, Rye, Walter Foods ... to be excellent. The chef really cares about what he is preparing and the constantly changing menu makes me want to go back every week. Go try it out for yourself. I think Allswell is a great spot, serving delicious foods, and pretty much all of my friends agree....and fyi I practically eat for a living.

Alas, I left fairly underwhelmed. The decor is warm and cozy, seemingly perfect for a respite from the winter weather. Note that the menu changes daily, apps are priced in the $9-15 range with entrees running ~$17-26. I had a beat goat cheese salad to start: simple, standard, quite delicious if on the small side. I had the beef stew (with turnips, and maybe swiss chard?), friend had the farfalle with spinach/hazelnut. The beef stew was OK, more chunky than soupy, the beef was tougher than I expected (not horrible, but I was expecting it to melt in my mouth). It could've used some potatoes as I felt for a 'hearty' dish, I wasn't that full by the end. The farfalle was bland, it was fresh pasta, but overpowered by diced broccoli rabe, and the cream/ricotta flavor didn't cut through like I wanted. I would've liked some garlic or salty cheese to spruce it up. The people sitting next to me had a delicious looking monkfish, so perhaps I ordered wrong, but in the end, I don't think this restaurant is destination worthy, especially given the amount of dinin-talent around Williamsburg.
