    Do not miss!

    This place was just GREAT! Our server definitely knew the menu. We ate outside in gorgeous weather and the cocktails were perfect for the occasion. I had the fritay with pork and my wife had the seafood dish. The plantains and black rice were also wonderful complements to our meal. The fritay with pork--not to be missed! We will definitely dine here again.

    Service

    A few weeks ago I hosted a fundraiser here, I had a great experience dealing with the staff. From our first meeting to the last minute of the function, they were attentive to our every need. Every one of my 50 guests had nothing but praise for the staff and the food. The menu consisted of authentic Haitian cuisine which was excellent.

    Food was excellent

    Hey Lacaye sak kap fet, I was there last night with my wife. We had to wait on about 32 minutes before a waitress shows up and taken our orders. I can tell the food was great and enjoyed very much our meals. My salad was well prepared and balance the way I had expected it to be. The Shitay was as well good at the exception of the bread that were too crusty a little. The taste was excellent. I have to admit my wife as a very picky woman and she agreed the food was excellent and I have to agree with her on that. The service was sucks in a way and the waiting to order and serving us the food was too long. the worst part was the Dessert where we had to wait over 30 minutes to get a Pain Patate like the pain patate was made from Haiti imported to lacaye. I think guys you need to work on the service part. I guarantee you we will be back again at Lacaye and inviting our friends to eat there as well but the service must be improved. I like the fact that the owner was there right in the cuisine to guarantee the quality of the food but we need still people on the floor that can guarantee the quality of the service. The music was great and very melo. We need you to stay in Business just improved the service and all will be allright. This is a prime location and you must be at the level and be very consistent on what are you doing to assure durability and excellency.

    Simply amazing

    Must try the lambi boucane, & acra, legume on top of the black rice was divine. dessert sinful, I tasted all 3 pain patate, red velvet, pineapple upside down cakes a la mode. Servers friendly, ambiance/atmosphere right on. Right across the BAM, easy access by LIRR (Atlantic Terminal). Hey! what can I say, it's downtown BK. Very hip, nice. Hatian hospitality at it's best.

    Home away from home

    I am elated that La Caye came to Fort Greene. A good Haitian restaurant was highly needed in this part of Brooklyn and NYC generally. People are continuously asking me, why is there no good Haitian restaurant in NY? Now there is. La Caye, as its name indicates, is where you can go for good home-style Haitian food. Its owners are down to earth, welcoming and eager to improve. Having no close Haitian relatives living in NY anymore, sometimes I just go to La Caye for a Prestige, some Haitian flavor and the warm embrace of Ralph, Ronald or Spencer. My favorite dish here is the Fritay because it reminds me the most of Haitian street food and because it is not so easy to make at home. I have also enjoyed the new Bouyon special which they had the genius to bring on as the winter got icy. What a life saver! All the Haitian classics (creole chicken, mac and cheese, whole red snapper) are on the mark but honestly, because this is where I come to revive my Haitian pulse, I would love to see them expand on their regional specials such as tom-tom, lalo etc. I know they have experimented with these but I would like to see them develop this fully. Please keep up the good work. With this location, the sky is the limit.

    They need to step up their game.

    I'm Haitian-American and I was very disappointed with my dining experience at La Caye. The very friendly hostess greeted my husband and I and sat us down. The table only had 1 setting. My waitress noticed and said she would bring it to me, however she had to be reminded once my food arrived. Since there were no exotic juices on the menu, I decided to opt for a Kola La Caye and I was told that they were out of it. For my entree, I decided to have lambi (conch) since it's a rarity to be told that they did not have any. Therefore, I ordered creole wings in a mango sauce from the appetizer menu and as a side I took the black mushroom rice (Du riz ak djon djon). When our food arrived my wings looked very dry and not glazed at all. I took a bite and boy was it spicy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a little kick in my food, but this was over-the-top!! I am the Queen of Sangrias, but the sparkling sangria they had wasn't up to par. My husband ordered the fritaille platter and I must say the tassot was soft and tasty. I usually am too stuffed to order dessert, but this was not the case. I wanted to taste their pineapple-upside down cake and of course...yes...you guessed it, they did not have any. The staff is very friendly and quite pleasant however, the food and service is so so. I was glad to support, however they will not be getting any more of my money.
