I came to this place by chance a couple of Saturdays ago with 3 other people. Place was packed and the only room for us was at the bar. At first we were reluctant to dine at the bar, but the bartender looked real cool, so we gave it a shot. Soon after we realized why this place was so busy. From the moment we sat, the bartender made sure we never wanted for anything. We started with a round of cocktails, the martinis were the best any of us had tasted in a long time. If you think martinis are a thing of the past in NYC, then you need to visit Johnny at Soigne. It is not a lost art at this place. Johnny helped with the menu choices, salads, crabcakes, and a lamb shortbread, outstanding. The duck and the lamb have to be the best in NYC. This place does belong in Manhattan, but we are glad its not. Then it may lose its style. From the moment we entered we were all treated as royalty. And as busy as the bar and restaurant were he handled it all, making it look like a walk in Prospect Park. What a character. We are so happy we found this place. Its a hidden gem in the Slope. Will return often. If you havn't tried Soigne, then you must. But leave room for the pumkin spice cheesecake, to die for. Treat yourself.

I had 16 family members in from out of town and I needed a place that would both accommodate a party of that size and show them some of the best food in NYC. I was also hoping for a place where my guests would be able to have conversations without shouting. I found all of the above at Soigne. Anthony, the chef, was attentive to every detail in planning the meal. My guests had a wonderful time. And the food was AMAZING. Every course, every detail, every bite. I wish I could rate this restaurant a 6 or a 7 for value - it was incredibly reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Soigne holds its own against the best meals I've had anywhere in NYC.

I live on quiet Sixth Ave, and while we've had some decent food for some time, Soigne takes things many notches up. Amazing quality, freshness, and inspired culinary creativity (but not in the scary/disappointing way like those places that proudly serve you a big plate with just a squiggle of weird foam on top of a tiny piece of toast). The decor at Soigne is fresh and soothing. Very pleasant servers. Fair prices for excellent and refined chow. The appetizers, small plates, and sides allow for a large range of meal sizes; one of us had just the salad and charcuterie, and was quite full; another had the foie gras and the burger and two glasses of old-growth Zinfandel, and was sated in the way one needs to be in late winter. I had the $30 market menu, a beautiful presentation of salad, transcendent risotto, and a marvelous Valhrona chocolate cake with a scoop of homemade chocolate chip ice cream and another scoop of lightly sweetened fresh whipped cream. All three of us loved everything we ordered. Wine list was great, too.

This is a terrific place. Creative and delicious menu, incredibly fresh food, great staff, lovely atmosphere...but it is in Brooklyn. If I lived in the neighborhood, I'd be there twice a week. Do leave room for dessert...the pumpkin creme brulee and homemade donut holes were both perfectly prepared and perfectly delicious!!

I no longer live in NY but was visiting and met some college friends there. We had a series of small bites, and the food was fabulous. The crab cakes, the flat bread, the sliders - everything we tried was beautifully presented and great tasting! The fries in truffle oil are incredible, and the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert was so light and fluffy. The sangria was delicious and the wait staff very friendly and attentive. The restaurant itself is cozy and inviting. Eveyrone agreed they would be back - and I am so sorry I live so far away. But I'm telling all my NY friends about it!

My date and I decided to dine outside. I ordered the charcuterie to start which was great. Then I had the pork and my date had the striped bass. Both were tasty and the presentation was lovely. The brownie tart finished the dinner off perfectly! The food was delicious and the waitress was proficient and very sweet. Will definitely return!

I organized a dinner for 8 on 3/31--the last night of Dine in Brooklyn. The food was great. Every single person at the table raved about her/his dinner. I had the crabcakes (so tasty), mushroom risotto (I never had risotto so good before) and the donuts (loved the dipping sauces). Everything was fabulous and I'll be back.
