I've been here twice and the food is always great here. The staff is quick and attentive. Artichoke and octopus are great to start and then the ravioli with the duck ragú sauce is to die for!

Have been to this restaurant a couple times and each time was better than the last. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive and the food is outstanding. The wine list is never ending with some great finds at reasonable prices. Well worth the visit,enjoy

A very attentive staff and well prepared dishes help to make this a pleasant, and even romantic experience. The cellar was more subdued than upstairs. Either one would have been good.

It's all very well to have been one of the first decent places in the area, but these days they have the Barclays Center around and many places are upping their game. Quit ramming customers all together and behaving so blasé, especially when charging this...More

While staying in Brooklyn just a few steps from Park Slope we happened onto the TA reviews for Convivium. Naturally, we gave it a whirl. Unfortunately I must say that the service was average and the food was utterly unacceptable given the price and reputation...More

I really don't recall specifically but I don't think they do. But even though I like a martini if I am dining out, this was such a good experience that the next time I am in NYC and in the same area, I am sure I will go back.
