    It's Our Family Dining Room

    Our family eats here at least 3 times a week. Yes, it's the only decent plac ein the neighborhood fo rblocks, but we're guaranteed, a delicious meal that each one us can enjoy. As a mother of 2 tweens, it's always a challenge. It's their suggestion and this is our meeting place. Petite Abeille is our meeting place We meet early evenings and brunch. We enjoy the mussels, steak frites, organic roasted chicken and mac & cheese. My husband and I indulge in the different beers. It's friendly atmosphere with great food. Brunch on the weekends is a must!! Fluffy delicious omlettes served with salad and stoemp, the Belgian mashed potatoes.mmmmmmm

    Decent atmosphere....that's about it

    The only reason this place is still in business is the built-in patrons from StuyTown and PCV. Period. It's usually packed because it's the only 'decent' place for blocks. This place and its neighbor, Vamos, are probably the two worst food experiences I've had in more than a decade of eating in this city. They clearly only survive b/c they're the only two 'decent' places within several blocks of the mammoth ST/PCV residential complexes. I even gave both places 2 chances. They both have decent atmosphere, but subpar food. Very pricey.

    Awesome Steak/Great Burgers/Great Brunch

    My partner and I have eaten here over 10 times in the last 6 months and the food and service has always been consistently excellent. We also order take out often from them too. The steaks are fantastic - always done the way we ask. Brunch is always quick and delicious - highly recommend the eggs benedict. The atmosphere is busy, but pleasant - and the service is good. Only had one bad experience with fish on a Monday - but, hey - you don't order fish on a Monday. I highly recommend this place. I always take out-of-town visitors here as there's not much else in the area that can compare.

    Not worth the trouble of returning

    It was my displeasure to be there one occasion last summer with two other people for what turned out to be a mediocre (at best) early evening dinner. Mussels, beer and fries were good, but service was unbelievably slow and apparently unable to coordinate getting three meals to the table at the same time. One of the meals was so uneventful I can't even remember what it was all I know is that I had to send back a burger because it was ordered medium rare and came well done the replacement suffered from a similar ailment but did have a bit of pink, and by the time it arrived my companions were nearly finished. This was not a place to return to, but the surroundings were nice and maybe someday they'll get it right.

    Great Family Place, Very Good Food.

    I live in Stuyvesant Town, and this is my favorite place to go when my parents are in town. Perfect for going out with them and my own kids! They're very kid friendly, the steaks are great at dinner, and the hot chocolate is outstanding at breakfast. Prices are slightly high for the 'hood, but generally worth it.

    Very good brunch, mediocre otherwise

    Have been there several times for both brunch and dinner. As much as I would love for this place to be great because the neighborhood really needs a place like this, it falls short. Brunch is very very good - have never been disappointed with that. Dinner is inconsistent - have had superb steak and terrible mussels and they have often been out of several beers which is one of their selling points. The worst part of the restaurant is the service. Twice I have waited for the check at least half an hour, they bring coffee w/ no cream and sugar and then it's another 10 minutes for that. The service is so poor it can ruin an otherwise pleasant experience, and I am an extremely laid back person when it comes to that. I hope they fix this becasue it really could be a fantastic place - it just isn't yet.

    Pleasant

    Very nice inside - not too much character and a lot of kids but still comfortable. The service was spotty. Not rude, but a bit clueless. Some people got the wrong drinks, and someone got their dinner while others were getting their apps. The good news is great fries, good prices and a menu with enough variety that not everyone has to have steak frites. Other knocks are the beer is expensive for the tiny glasses (wheat beer on tap came in about a 12 oz. glass, belgian blonde in about a 9 oz. glass, seriously) and that they ran our of Lobsters at 8pm on "Lobster Night." I didn't care as that's not what I came for but it was odd, although I've heard there is a shortage in the US this season which may have something to do with it.
