My husband and I have happily eaten at Saul a number of times over the past few years. This last visit was incredibly disappointing, the portions shrunk, the waiter was not very attentive, and the food was cold. I don't mind spending a lot of money on a good meal but this was a joke. we were starving but went elsewhere for dessert. Brooklyn has become a great place to find a great meal, clearly Saul has not even tried to compete.

We had a wonderful experience at Saul. We went to the restaurant for our wedding anniversary and were welcomed graciously by the staff. We were seated promptly and the servers were attentive and knowledgeable (especially Michael-- thank you!). We had a couple of dietary restrictions that that staff made sure to accommodate and we felt welcome and comfortable. All of the food we ordered was absolutely outstanding. The seasonal price-fix menu came with wonderful choices (a soup, pasta, entree, and dessert) and each part was unbelievable. We will certainly be back to Saul.

What a big time letdown. Had never been and I attributed it to my Manhattan chauvinism. We trecked to Smith Street in Bklyn - don't take a car, parking very hard. Small place, dimly lit. Very good waiter. House cocktail wonderful. Should have had another and stopped there. Understand, the food isn't bad, it's just nothing to write home about. Appetizer ricotta "gnocchi" 4 small dumplings that bore no resemblance to gnocci - bland and meaningless. Cold pea soup good, albeit with a strange aftertaste. 2 gnocci specials - more like it and very tasty. Skate and turbot - good, tasty - small (like a tasting meal) portions - at over $30 a plate insufficient. I had one of my favorites - ris de veau. A very small portion - 4 small bites - $32 - silly. Desserts: melted sorbet, chevre cheese cake (meaningless and small - like the old Groucho Marx joke) and a wonderful Baked Alaska. It was a pleasant meal, but at appx $200 a couple, not for me. Save your money - much better places to go in Brooklyn.

This is not worth the hype... I heard about Saul on the Martha Show and decided to give it a try... the drinks were very good... the food did not live up to all the hype. the dining room was so dimly lit that we all used our cell phones to read the menu, when the waiter asked if there was anything wrong with the pasta I replied that my wife thought it was too salty, he replied that "they never had any complaints". Will I return... No... will I suggest to a friend? no, was it worth the price? not really

We went in December for our wedding anniversary and were hugely disappointed. Nothing was great and the place was empty.

absolutely great from soup to nuts -- literally here. The amuse bouche ( a mushroom/white truffle bisque of sorts) was outstanding and surprising. The rets of the food followed suit. yes its expensive but the quality is so that it feels veyr much worth it. dont miss the desserts--not usually my thing -- but hear are phenom. The pine nut tart rocked, with the best use of rosemary in a dessert ive ever tried. The baked alaska notable too. I love eaing in brooklyn and have had many great means (favs are applewood, frannys, and al di la) but somehow SAUL manages to be just a cut above the rest. bravo and thanks
