Just went for the second time to Pardes in Brooklyn. We brought friends who also enjoy unique flavors and can appreciate fine nuance of flavors and textures in food. At Pardes you go on a food exploration of tastes and incredible unique tastes. As one who only goes to Kosher restaurants, Pardes is an experience in food. Don't go if you want one dish for yourself, you must share each dish, spend the time tasting each bite and talk about how you can make a creamy sauce out of sautéed caramelized onions, duck sliced and cooked to perfection with a fig raisin glaze or steak tartar served in a wasabi water bath. Who knew you can cook all these flavors and dishes GLATT KOSHER. Peach tartar desert with made with lamb fat and chamomile ice cream. This is amazing. The next day I was replaying each bite I savored the evening before. Service was amazing, someone was always available to explain the dish or clear plates between course. A must visit to Foodies who appreciate fine tastes and flavors and Kosher. Thank you for a great dinner experience.

Went there on a date. Very impressed with the staff. Food was a bit expensive, but very good. Worth every penny. I suggest for dessert the chocolate moouse with strawberries. Amazing!

My husband and I went here on a thursday night. We stood at the door for over a minute before the rushed staff glanced our way. We were seated right away. The small space, hectic environment of the staff screaming at each other did not help us to relax. Our waitress was very nice, but the overall service and timing was greatly lacking. Our one meal came over 5 min. before the next. They need to change their management because the restaurant seemed to be in chaos.

I am not such a frequent to high caliber restaurants and pretty cautious of eating things I can't pronounce. So when I looked at the menu I started getting queesy. Once the dishes came out I was quite surprised how delicious everything tasted. The service was amazing, they explain the menu from top to bottom considering it is constantly changing. Also there are waiters constantly on attention to attend to your needs. The atmosphere is very comfortable, and pleasant. Very pleased.

We don't usually eat Kosher, but went out with friends who are observant. We are used to eating at fine restaurants, and were looking forward to eating at a fine Kosher establishment in Brooklyn. We were disappointed. While the food ended up to be quit good, the service was awful and the attitude of the manager was terrible and less than professional. When we arrived, the fryer was broken and she would not work with us to give us a dinner where we could order a salad that we wanted and get a side dish with our main meal other than another salad. When I tried to explain it was in her best interest money wise to work with us she became less than happy. Well we were happy when the fryer started to work as the french fries were delicious as was the burger (but too hard to eat without it getting all over you). By in large the food was really good, but the menu to hard to understand, and service sub-par and because of this we won't be going back again. Too bad.

Coming from a more traditional upbringing and enjoying dining as an art, I've frequented non kosher restaurants before, ranging from the creme de la creme to the less desirable. Having gone strictly kosher, I was excited to experience what appeared to be an upcoming, trendy and knowledgeable restaurant in the gourmet field of expertise. Unfortunately, my husband and I left incredibly disappointed and with a high bill to add insult to injury. Their waiter had no idea what sweetbreads are (and even though I asked to make sure it was wasn't organ meat, he assured me that it wasn't) so I ordered it... and ended up almost gagging on a thyroid gland as my dish. The veal stew was hardly up to par, much less flavor, except for the fact that it was somewhat moist. The entire dish was so upsetting, I felt guilty convincing my husband to take us here on our anniversary and throw away almost $100. We had a bite size portion for an appetizer -the beef tartar, which was well created but which you would have to be a fan of raw meat to appreciate, the Pardes Burger which was probably the closest to "safe" on the menu and what may now be the veal confit which they changed. I have to applaud their efforts in taking kashruth to a much higher level (or attempt at one) of gourmet, atmosphere, etc. but I would strongly advise that your waiters know what they are serving the client before they end up with an exorbitant bill and leave hungry and ill satiated. I can honestly say that we will most likely not frequent this restaurant again but depending on your palette, might be a nice atmospheric experience.

Had an incredibly delicious meal at Pardes. The menu is distinctive and inventive, and the results are mouth watering. Cannot wait to sample additional items.
