In your peregrinations about Prospect Heights, do yourself a favor and stop in here. The ambiance is conducive to relaxation, sipping from an impressive array of single barrel bourbons and single malt scotches. They have a variety of oyster selections (the meaty, briny dollar each Blue Point oysters a great deal) to go with a great Gin and basil cocktail, very refreshing. The mac n' cheese with bacon so rich and flavorful, and the crostini dish was so good I about fell out of my chair. We took a tour of their cheese and charcuterie options and our server Anthony not only offered great recommendations, but played great defense against an unexpected shortage in the kitchen by providing a generous helping of his favorite prosciutto post haste to compensate for the gaff. His help with the wines by the glass made for perfect pairings. Personable and professional. The Bailey's shakes for dessert made for a perfect button on a smartly dressed evening. Marvelous.

My husband and I had brunch at Cornelius today and the food was fantastic. I had the french toast, which was better than any of the brunch places on Vanderbilt. My husband had the flat iron (meat, potatoes, eggs), which was also delicious. He said they have the best coffee out of the places we've eaten around here (which is most). For an $11 brunch it is a good deal.

The wine and beverage list alone is to die for, but stay alive for the food - and go to heaven. From an incredibly sage list of rums, whiskeys, single malts and tequilas and a sensitively wrought wine list, you're sure to find the perfect sipping situation or a great meal match. Then there's the oyster selection - chilled, fresh and wonderful, especially when the weather is warm. But it is the menu that keeps the promise when dish after dish arrive and tale you into deep culinary phantasm. This perfect little spot shines as a beacon of cuisine.

Great new spot with arguably the best french fries in Brooklyn. Will go back often.

I have been a fan of this spot for years. Back when it was a hipster korean place, and now at the americana hangout. The food and booze are great.! the atmosphere is chill, it's not too loud and very manageable, even at it's thickest. The food is a bit on the pricey side, unless you like oysters and can get there before 7pm ($1 per! AMAZING!) Up until a few of weeks ago it was a regular hang out for me. Then I started noticing issues with at least 2 of the bartenders, and few of their wait staff. The attitude and lack of grace and care of these people were astounding! It wasnt just with me (actually it's never been directly me, but more with the people I am with, and other customers around me). They are rude, unhelpful, and care more about hitting on customers then they do about service. They have gone out of their way on many occasions to ignore customers. It just doesnt make any sense that it has become like this so quickly. It's such a shame. Aside from the help. This is a really great place!

The Gastro pub food is great. Bourbon selection is very wide. Craft beer selection is very wide. Staff is friendly. BUT its location doesn't attract many people. Very underrated restaurant/bar. Best spot on vanderbilt if people were to go there.
