Tried eating there three times. The first time they said they didn't have any sausage gravy. I asked if they had any sausage, flour, milk, salt and pepper. Blank stares. They obviously make it from a mix. The second time I sat at the empty counter for 10 minutes before the person behind the counter stopped talking to his co-workers long enough to bring a menu. I was served a burned cup of coffee that I left half full. The third time we went in for sunday brunch and they had a prix-fixe of $16 for their regular breakfast menu. For that price i'll happily go down the street. A real shame. We could use a good diner with fresh food and good service. They appear to be complacent and happy with their business. People eat there. I don't why.

I went to the restaurant for lunch and the waiter was just oblivious of me that day. I went and spoke to the manager who provided me with a free lunch for my complaint. The staffs have been wonderful since. Everyone should eat there, the food is just delicious!

I have lived and eaten at Dizzys many times. I never thought it was great but today I couldn't believe what I got. I asked for a scrambled egg & bacon platter to go. I also asked if instead of toast and potatoes they could just put lettuce and tomatoe on the side. First I got an egg sandwich so explained my order again. I guess they just threw the egg from the sandwich in a plastic tray. It wasn't scrambled it was sunny side down mixed with the bacon in a plastic sandwich container. They did give me another container with lettuce and tomatoe in it. It couldn't have been more unappetizing. breakfast. I opened it at work and got comments from my coworkers as to how bad it looked. I threw it out and had to go somewhere else for food.

For years I lived a few blocks away and ate here frequently for brunch. No problem, great food, descent service aside from the atrocious waits. What happened today lost my business permanently. I went in with my boyfriend and from the first moment we were clearly being treated differently from everyone around us. As every other table sat down, they were given water, coffee mugs and coffee. We watched the staff walk by us, refilling all the cups all around us and never even recognizing that we didn't have cups. They threw some of there muffins at us, without offering any water or anything to wash them down with. We finally had to ask for coffee, of which one was burnt tasting. Then we had to chase someone down for water, as every other table was given a carafe of water as soon as they were seated. I don't know if it was that we both look young, although we're in our late 20's or we weren't "hipster" enough for this joint, but whatever the reason there was a clear difference in service. I didn't realize it's cool in park slope to discriminate based on appearances and preconceived judgments. What's funny is that my boyfriend writes reviews for an online magazine and he's writing one on our experience here. If they only knew.

Never had a problem with the service - then Im a waiters dream...same order, same way. The veggie burger is excellent with really tasty fries. Burger comes with red onions and lettuce which are a really great combination. Altho Im a veggie Im not a salad person at all. The free muffins on sunday are quite welcome and the coffee is quite delicious. Enjoy a two dollar socialist beer - 1st world beer at third world prices - if you order the brunch special! Expect long waits on Sunday mornings unless you dont mind sitting at the counter with the eternally single...The omelettes are quite passable but they can be a little stingy with the ingredients. They also sell the NY Times, yet another reason to go on Sundays.

Great coffee, good food, convenient location and I refuse to go there again. Why? The service is as bad as it gets. Unnecessary attitudes and the overall feeling that the waitstaff could care less about the customers. I've been there a number of times at various times during the day, giving it the benefit of the doubt - maybe catching it on an off day? Unfortunately, the awful service at Dizzy's is not a one time deal, it's the deal.

Some of the best food in Park Slope. Incredible burgers, salads, and just great food overall. The value is great ($8 for an amazing burger) and its convenient location (right off the subway) makes it a great meal after work
