Great food/BAD service – I was searching for a nice place to dine late and have a couple of drinks. The food was above average and the wine was actually perfect, however to say that the service was lacking is being kind. Couldn't find the waiter half the time and when he was located, he was standding at another table watching the sports event on one of the many large screen TVs. My date and I will return and hope/pray to be seated in another's section. Surely they all can't be as inattentive!!
Noisy and Mediocre – If you like football and noisy football crowds on a Sunday, this place is for you. But if you're like me and my friends, who were not informed that our neighbors would be screaming in our ears about the Giants the entire time, then this place is NOT for you. I think we would have been ok with the noisy atmosphere if the food and service was good, but unfortunately, my egg white omelette was drowned in butter, the coffee was burnt, and the service was very very slow. So, all in all, not a pleasant Sunday brunch experience.
Great sports bar – Me and my cousin go to this bar for boxing PPV all the time. I go here and drink cheap beer and bar food (wings) and it's always been great. Last time there we got 20 wings and 4 pitches of beer and it was under 60 dollars. Love this place.
Expensive for BAD food. – People told us it was good. Maybe they had read the generic, fake, good reviews on this page. It was horrendous. Good deal? We paid $8 for 4 shriveled, burned, fishy(old)-tasting, quarter-sized shrimp. Mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box. Salads were ok, but we had to pick out brown lettuce and pour off bowl full of balsamic vinegar (apparently vinegrette means tons of straight up vinegar). The "soup master" didn't manage to make onion soup that my husband could eat more than a few spoons of, and for a place that talks up their menu SO MUCH, they can't figure out how to make fries that aren't soggy- like they had been 'fried' in water! I wish I was exaggerating, but I think I could be much harsher. The food is THE OPPOSITE of how they describe it. It is obvious that the good reviews were written by friends and family. I'm not saying that the food was rediculously expensive, but for what we got, quantity AND quality- NOT OKAY. It's just so offensive when you have to pay prices that good restaurants charge when the food is SO bad. Do you know how easy it is to make mashed potatoes taste good? I almost cancelled the charge on my credit card.
POOR WAIT SERVICE, HORRIBLE FOOD, EVEN WORSE MANAGEMENT! – First off I would like to start off by saying that this place was packed on Sunday night, the day before Memorial Day. It looked like a cool, trendy & happening place to eat & drink at. For the LOVE of GOD were we SO WRONG! We walked in and were not even greeted/seated by the "manager" for about 5 minutes , because he was busy standing there picking his fingernails! Once seated, our server took our drink order and never returned. I took it upon myself to ask another waitress for help and she brought our drinks over promptly and proceeded to take our order since by this time we had been waiting 20 mins since our original waiter first came! When our appetizer arrived, the Shrimp Quesadillas....they were by far the most greasiest looking things I have ever seen! How do you mess up something so simple and easy? Sopping in grease! Don't know how they made them, but it looked worse than any fast food quesadilla I had ever seen or eaten! Needless to say, we were starving and ate them! After an HOUR...yes a whole hour..and constant searching for our waiter to see where our entree's were, a bus boy brought out our entrees. Ok...I am going to stress the fact that I was starving and would of eaten anything... at this point "cold soggy mushy cereal" sounds appealing!! I ordered a Veggie Cheese Burger with fries. I took the bun off to pour on some ketchup and noticed that the cheese was just placed on top of the burger, it was not melted at all...so I gave it the benefit of the doubt..I bit into it and it was "ice" cold...hence, why the cheese was not melted! The fries were greasy, fried teeny tiny pieces of little burnt scrap potatoes...I would of gone to McDonald's, Buger King...anything would of been better than this! How could something like get served to a customer.....absolutley horriffic! After waiting over an hour for our food..this is what I was starving and waiting for? I would love to go on & explain how bad this place is but there is no room left!
Best Watering Hole and Pub Grub in Park Slope – Well all I can say is, that anytime...everytime I go to visit my friends in Brooklyn, I always recommend 200 Fifth. First of all, it's convenient to get to from Manhattan (R Train to Union Street), and it's atmosphere is fun.
My girlfriends and I are always made to feel very welcome there, we've had many birthday brunches there and you can't beat the prices.
Their menu is fabulous: you can get a wonderful, yummy pasta dish, juicy burger with all the trimmings and get a drink of any type from the bar. Did I mention the vast varieties of beer? Fabulous!
Would recommend 200 Fifth to anyone...anytime!
Great place to have a bite and a brew – This is a great place to go and have a quick bite and a few beers early in the day. Their bar menu is amazing and the buffalo wings are a knockout. Also enjoy their dinner menu that features a amazing steaks and seafood. Maybe a little crowded and have a few mintue wait on the weekends, but isn't that a good sign? Service here is always with a smile and you'll leave with one too after enjoying yourself at this great Park Slope restaurant.
fun place – Love this place for all it's expansiveness and diversity. Would love to see more dancing nights, like in the past, however the huge bank of TVs offers a suitable distraction. Game days have the place packed, so plan in advance. This is a Park Slope landmark- love it!
Yum, yum and YUMMM! – Awesome bar, great food- WOW!!
Something like 40 beers on draught, HELLO!
Their Portobello sandwich is to die for- a vegetarian's dream. I like it "blackened" with extra sun-dried tomato & pesto sauce. For added heath, trade the fries for the salad!!
The wait staff and bartenders are super friendly too :)
