Go here for a killer margarita! – I had dinner at Apartment 138 with a Brooklyn friend while I was visiting from Seattle. He insisted that I have a taste of his margarita -- it was so tasty that I decided to order my own. The waitress was extremely patient as my friend and I chatted (as opposed to making decisions about dinner), and my burger was excellent. I'll definitely go back the next time I'm in town!
Worst Brunch Location – I took some out of towners here & I was totally embarassed by how bad the brunch fare was. The huevos rancheros was less than mediocre - the tortillas tasted & had the consistency of card board, the crab burger was greasy & tasteless, the veggie burger tasted old & as if it sat out for too long. When we sent the veggie burger back, the waitress came over & was annoyed that that we didn't like it. We explained that the veggie burger tasted sour & she didn't seem fazed at all by it. The grilled chicken salad that we ordered to replace the burger was wilted & the chicken was rubbery. Truly a real disappointment.
Great place for a party! – I had my birthday party at Apt. 138 and loved it. We ended up having 28 people and took up the whole back deck and it was a wonderful evening. The staff was so helpful and attentive and everyone had a great time. It POURED right before the party- but they quickly mopped up the deck and it was a perfect (July) night. Food was great and the group deals are very reasonable. A good time was had by all.
great place to socialize – The food is pretty good, but the drinks are better. It's really a place to go with a group to hang out rather than for fine dining. It's a cool place, and the people who go there tend to want to have a good time without getting hammered. I recommend.
Apartment 138 is my new favorite Brooklyn restaurant. Located convienantly on the F line in Carroll Garden (Bergen stop.) The menu is affordable, the cocktails are wonderful and the food is outrageous. The service is attentive and friendly too. I had the beet salad and the the ribs the first time I went and the second time I had the crabcake burger and the ice cream sandwiches. Both times I also had amazing cocktails. I can't wait to go back and I look fwd to trying everything on the menu.
Great spot to grab a bite – Apt 138 has great food, anytime of the day. I have tried many things on the menu, and they are all great. Their vodka lemonade is amazing!! Their service is slow, but in that laid-back way, so I don't mind as long as I'm not in a rush. The space is cute, cozy, and welcoming. This is also a really laid-back place to get at drink.
Best cheap brunch on Smith St – This is hands down my favorite brunch joint on the Smith/Court strip. $10 gets you coffee, booze and great food. Awesome home fries. Always a waiter ready to pour you more coffee when you need it. I'm kind of happy that the secret's not completely out about this place because it's just about the last place on Smith you can go to for brunch without waiting 45 minutes for a table.
And at night - very cozy place to have a beer without leaving the hood. Less scenestery than Cafe Tabac.
Just Plain Awesome... – I love this place! It's cheap and tasty, and some of the waiters are really cute. The Bloody Mary I had this weekend was a little too spicy for my liking, but my burger was cooked just right. I've also had the most of the pasta dishes and sandwiches (ok, I go there a lot!) and they have all been really good, too.
where are the waiters? – I need to know where my server was.As soon as I was seated my server diasapered and never ask if i wanted something to drink.After i waited 20 min my server came back and ask if i wanted something to drink but to his surprise i had already had my drink since i had to ask the busboy for it.When i wanted a second round my waiter was standing next to the bar eating.The busboy handed me dessert menu and even took my order.Then he handed me my check because my waiter was busy eating again with the other server .When I was leaving my waiter said thank you while he took a skewer out of his mouth.It will be a long time before i give this place a second chance.People if you want to eat on smith street try this place last
Ho Hum – Baddish food, slow, unfriendly service -- why bother? So many good places to go in a few blocks.
