Great brunch! – I just went to Sette today and wanted to spread the word about this great spot. I don't know how authentic the food is - mostly because there weren't a ton of Italian choices on the pre-fixe brunch menu - but the taste and quality were great.
I made reservations a couple days in advance and when my friend and I arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly and inviting host. We were seated and waited on immediately. The food came out quickly, was delicious, and the unlimited cocktails kept on flowing. I had the mixed greens and vegetarian omelette - both great.
The atmosphere is warm and cozy and even though the place was packed, each table has its own space and breathing room.
Plus - $16 for a yummy brunch and unlimited drinks is great deal, even for Park Slope!
Nice Atmospher. Sub Par Service, bad brunch food. – I went once on recommendation and a second time to give the food the benefit of the doubt. I did go for brunch both times, so there is a chance that the dinner food is better. The brunch food was dry and less than tasty. I had the eggs benedict, which was no doubt made with fake eggs in the hollandaise. Ick! My friend had a pannini, which he didn't like very much either. The beet salad was delightful though, and so were the drinks, which are unlimited with the $16-$18 brunch special. Normally I would consider this a bargain, but since the food was terrible, it was more like paying $16 for the drinks (still possibly a bargain). The restaurant is beautiful. The service is not so good. I waited over 10 minutes just for water...then I didn't even get a menu. When I did, I had to flag down a bus boy after waiting an additional 10 minutes to order. Maybe I will go back some time for drinks since the atmosphere is so nice.
Really great, authentic Italian – I'd been meaning to try Sette for ages, and finally went for dinner. Very lovely rustic-yet-modern interior with a very friendly staff and a great ambiance. The menu is very authentic italian, and the description of the specials absolutely blew me away. One of those places where you spend forever deciding between 10 things because everything sounds delicious. Tons of great-priced wine choices. Sette is on par with Mario Batali's "Lupa" or "Noodle Pudding". A good date place - intimate and quiet enough for good conversation. 2 entrees and wine for 2 + tip was about $60, so it is a little pricey. One of my new favorites in the nabe.
Not the typical generic Italian – Have gone twice and always had an above par experience. The wine list is to be taken advantage of, the sea scallop appetiser was incredible and the pappardelle with oxtail was out of this world. My girlfriend's seafood risotto was very well done. The service was fantastic and professional. And the prices are reasonable. You won't get the boring American Italian food here. This is what I know as Italian food, although this I would consider typical of the kitchen in regions from Emilia-Romagna to Lazio.
Service is horrible – this place is very cute but the service is bad. we ordered a bottle of wine from the bar while we waited for our table, when our table was ready we were sat and then waited 15 min for our server to ask us for a drink ,and when i asked for my wine she gave an attitude. The food was average. the scallpos with the hummus was great and i wish i would have gotton that as a my meal. The chix dish i got was awful, it was dry and had no taste and the creamed spinach was nothing special. I would avoid this pace too bad its so cute cause i would have gone back but the service and the food will keep me away!
Great lighting – This place has fantastic lighting - not too dark, not too bright. The food is fantastic and so reasonably priced. Well, truthfully, I loved my ravioli, but my boyrfriend's risotto was made with regular rice (instead of risotto rice). It was still yummy though. The $20 set price for bottles is the best thing ever!
Consistently Exellent – Sette is a truly fabulous restaurant. Chef Amanda Freitag is helping make this place a serious challenger to Manhattan's best. In Brooklyn there are really only 4 or 5 great restaurants - Sette is definitely one of them. Orichiette with pork ragu - to die for!
And the 20 bottles of wine each priced at $20 is genius.
Sette gets my vote for the best Italian in Brooklyn.
New neighborhood fave (well, tied with Rosewater) – In a Park Slope restaurant scene stocked with seasonal, local/organic menus, Sette is the first to challenge my allegiance to Rose Water thanks to the exceptionally friendly management, knowledgable, responsive waitstaff, good, often great food, a great list of interesting wines for $20, and lovely ambiance. Focaccia served in the latest edition of Corriere della Sera is flavorful and pairs nicely with the dense olive oil and Mediterranean olives. The grilled asparagus in Reggiano fondue with crisp pancetta is delicious and the beet salad with pear, goat cheese, watercress, and toasted pistachioes has become a part of my own repertoire. The lamb shank is, for my money, the star entree. The fish dishes are also very good. The pastas are usually strong, though a recent squash pansotti, while flavorful and delicate, was a bit too sweet. The desserts are excellent and not cloyingly sweet.
Great food - When Not Too Salty! – I have eaten at Sette several times, and have recommended the place to others. The common view is that the food is great - when it is NOT over salted. I recently had the ox tail pasta and my tongue swelled on the way home. Last time, it was delicious and seasoned just right. Other than that, it's a great place. Listen up, chef! Easy does it with the sodium, please.
Great food, great wine! – I have eaten at Sette 2 or 3 times now and it is always fabulous. The asparagus appetizer, the stuffed fish, the oxtail pasta and another risotto-like dish with pumpkin and all fabulous. I love the wine by the quarto and I think it was around $9 for each quarto and the list was rather sizeable, so it was nice to try a few different wines.
