Came yesterday with two friends and a sleeping toddler in a stroller. Was happily surprised at how accommodating the staff were to the stroller, giving us perhaps the only table at which a stroller wouldn't be away. It was very difficult to get out, though, because the tables were packed so tightly together that there was no way to get the stroller out after they had sat another table in what had been the aisle. Waitress was very kind and tried to help, though. Food was great (pirogies, blintzes, babka french toast, and my favorite potato pancakes ever). Wasn't their fault that we ordered all fried foods and felt a little gross afterward. Food was a little pricy, but we were happy. Overall, great place for lunch--I'll be back, hopefully with an awake toddler. She like the leftovers, though!

Nothing pretensious here! Basic good food with a Polish influence, informal dining room. The service is poor so just keep that in mind when you go and you will enjoy. It hasn't kept me away for the 20 years I have frequented.

I can always count on a good meal when I go to Teresa's. Outside seating is a plus on a nice day and afterwards you can stroll [literally] down the block to the promenade for some breathtaking views of the city. Some of the best Polish food I've had in NY. The pierogi's are my favorite, and I love to get the platter if I have someone with me to help eat (big portions). Can't say enough good things about this place, esp that they're open early to late so I can always get a meal no matter my schedule.

The food was good. The pancakes are really good as was the home fries. The prices are good. The service was Ok. I felt the waitress was friendly but not the most attentive. If called, she was quick to come over. No follow up was made on us other than when I prompted her. Even with the check. I had to take it to her. I was acknowledged after a few seconds of standing in front of her with outstretched check in hand. I found the lack of attentiveness a little odd as the restaurant was not that busy at the time. While there I observed something that was a more off-putting than the wait staff lack of attentiveness to guest. When the guest of a nearby table left, the dishes were removed and the table was wiped but the napkin with unused knife was left. The waitress just replaced the fork. The former quest hands were all-over that place setting including the knife. Couldn't help but wonder if my place setting was new or recycled. Yuck! This restaurant has good food but is let down by the Service and recycled place settings.

I have lived in Brooklyn Heights my entire life, and Teresa's is a mainstay. Lazanki, blintzes, fried pierogi (the meat especially are sublime), potato pancakes, cold borscht in summer with dill, garlic, and a whole boiled egg...all delicious. I find the service very friendly, though without the forced smiles that Americans seem to expect. Love this place, it NEVER disappoints!

I have been dining at Teresa for more than 7 years. Excellent food and peaceful atmosphere. I just can't stand for service anymore. It was just ok, then now it's getting worse. I had hard time of getting server attention since I step in there. No greeting. Server never come back to check if the food was ok or not. When I asked her for a check she still didn't bother to ask about the food. Of course, I didn't hear thank you word from her mouth when I left.

Had a lovely lunch today at Teresa's with a colleague. His first "Polish Food" experience. All was great, sat outside, great service and value.
