I've been here a few times and the food is always delicious. If you go on a weekend, they do not take reservations for 2, but if you get there prior to 7:30 there isn't usually a wait. It does get crowded later on but there is a bar you can wait at. The atmosphere is nice- pretty decor and... More

Been going here for many years with family. But the last few years the atmosphere has gotten very noisy. And. Long wSits. Food is still quite good but prices have risen and there are many other choices with a better atmosphere. Good for appetizers and a drink however.

We had a very disappointing visit to Ponte Vecchio recently. After spending $200 on lunch, we wondered why we came. First we entered and one of the owners seated us. He greeted us with a scowl on his face, not the slightest hint that he was happy to have us patronize his establishment. He sat us at a table for... More

Visited this place last night (four adults and two kids!) waited 45 minutes (being pushed from pillar to post) for the table (booked in advance) to be available. In Europe we would call this place a noisy bar that serves some food, not a restaurant. You could not hear anyone talking because of, not only the other diners, but a... More

This review is by a foreigner so Brooklynites may want to skip it. The restaurant is somewhat schizophrenic. It has claims to fine dinning with a nice décor and waiters with white shirts and black vests but then it has a bar with two large TVs with sports programs on. This would never happen in my country. In keeping with... More

Food was basically good with a few flaws:over cooked shrimp. Service was well intentioned if nothing else. The real spoiler was the noise! People talking among friends always happens but they also have a sound track playing loudly so you have to practically scream to be heard. Not a place for a relaxing meal among friends.

We've eaten here about 4 times. Some of the food has been excellent, other food, not so much. Best thing here is the filet with portobello mushrooms and wine sauce. Not much comes with it, just a drizzle of mashed potato and vegetable, but it's a twin filet, and they do pay attention when you like your filet to walk... More
