We first tried Dumont when exploring different restaurants that served brunch in Williamsburg & I must say its become a favorite spot for Brunch. First walking in we were skeptical at how small it was until we were told there was a patio in the back. Loved it & the atmosphere the outdoor seating brings. The waiting staff are efficient & friendly. The brunch menu yummy, not to mention when they offer the pork belly BLT , yummy in my tummy. Don't forget your bloody Mary's , mimosas & cocktails as well. Definitely a keeper for us

It was a warm, sunny spring day when we arrived at DuMont for Mother's Day brunch. We were seated at a sunny table in the garden. Despite the ceiling fans there was no appreciable breeze and the sun beat down upon us. After bearing the heat for several minutes I asked that the awning be extended to give us some shade. The waiter returned and told us that the manager would not be willing to do so because that would destroy the sunny ambiance for the other diners. We were not offered the opportunity to be seated at one of several vacant shaded tables and our request to do so was denied. As a result, all five of us were unable to enjoy our meals. Indeed, my daughter -- who was in the hottest seat -- was so uncomfortable that she had to take her entire meal home in a doggy bag. After I wrote a critical comment on the card provided, the manager approached me on the street and told me that if they had extended the awning, it would have made the garden a sauna. As for the vacant tables, she that none of them would fit five diners. I understand that Mother's Day tends to be busy at restaurants, but the management's unwillingness to deviate from their preferred routine was startling.

Saw the female couple with the chick who keeps saying "This ain't heaven, this is paradise." One girl was dressed like an extra from Dynasty - stilettos, pantyhose, a dress and a fake fur. Her GF wore a fedora and double breasted suit. Crazy! They had a fight, and left separately. But the food was so good I never cared. Check this place out for the food even if the customers take themselves a little seriously. I had amazing fish, and would go back any time. Recommend.

I absolutely LOVE the hip scene here. And the food. The wait staff always have great recommendations - try the steak! I grew up with a poster of an impressionist painting in my room - my friends thought I was weird, I knew it was so I could move to Brooklyn and live the life! If some people think the scene here is too hip, I say you're either too old, sqaure of maybe just bitter. Bon appetit!

yeah, the food is good. but, as some of the reviews on here would suggest, the customers can be absolutely horrible. it seems a standard w-burg/g-point restaurant complaint by now, you know, something along the lines of "the hipster service was obnoxious," but perhaps it's a response to some of the obnoxious delusional fashion-obsessed people that pretend they like good food just like they pretend they like art. yes yes, you always wanted to live in new york city, how cute. too bad you're too late.

The prices have gone up since I've last been here, but they changed the layout of the bar and I think it's a huge improvement. Lots more room to sit and chill and drink/eat at the bar. Also the burger is still heavenly. SO good. MMmmmmmmm...I want one right now...

She wears long silk stockings, and high stiletto heels. She says "this ain't heaven, this is paradise". I'll take her back. She loves her some Dumont. She enjoys the macaroni. Me, I could go to Doogee Burger. But she's my girl.
