    Happy hour oysters! Love how they have an outdoor seating area. They also change their drink menus regularly and it's always good.

    As a gal who has spent a fair amount of time in France, it is wonderful to see that most of their servers can speak French! Decent and inexpensive bloody, cute outdoor seating, and cash only.

    Start your boozy Sunday brunch right with their $20 pitcher mimosa and scrumptious eggs Benedict or croque madame. You won’t regret this.

    Gorgeous back yard, delicious food and cocktails. The bread is truly phenomenal. Very much like someone dropped a duplicate of Maison Premiere in Bushwick.

    Get a cocktail. The Take Me Home is excellent. As is the classic Old Fashioned.

    Comfy. Quick bite to eat. The fried Pancake is delicious! The place is small but the food is great and the prices are affordable.

    I highly recommend this restaurant. It is not easy to find. It's on a growing area of bushwick. The food and service are great. I'll be coming again :-)

    Food is awesome. Especially the pan cakes. Waiters are also very friendly. One of my brunch go-to places in Bushwick.

    A bright spot for the area. I'm glad to see this place move in. Great French onion soup and hanger steak. Try one of their cocktails.

    Real nice place, coq au vin is my recommendation. Mominette burger is good, but IMO doesn't compete with the best.

    Beware the brunch pancake. It takes an hour to make and easily feeds 3.

    Just come here, the way to describe this place is all the inappropriate things you would say after the most mind blowing "session" ever.

    Escargot was great - not salty. Can’t recommend the steak but the duck breast was good. Cute interior.

    Lovely patio and $1 happy hour oysters but extremely disappointing dinner. The tuna nicoise was tough and bland. The burger was overcooked. The specialty cocktail was unremarkable.

    Garden seating in the back is so cute, skip the food and come for a drink instead.
