Great food Great Service – I've been here three times since it has opened and I've enjoyed everything that i've tried. They have a great Happy Hour special a bucket of Coronitas with two free tacos for $10. Can't go wrong with that. Definitely check this place out!
Fresh delicious food, definitely try the guacamole – My husband and I accidentally discovered Piramide one rare weekday when we were both home during lunch time. Their lunch menu was amazing, and the prices were very cheap. They even had tableside guacamole during lunch, which was a surprising treat! We returned another day for brunch, and then for dinner, and were not disappointed either of those times. The restaurant is fairly new, so the service kinks are being worked out, but overall, this is on the path to being a regular spot.
Amazing Food EVEN BETTER WINE LIST – Let me start by saying I have never gone to a Mexican place thinking wine would be my drink. Tequila. Tequila. Tequila. is usually what the little man on my shoulder is screaming in my ear. By the end of the night, that same little man had red wine stained teeth!
I heard that the chef from one of my favorite park slope spots, Maria's, had left and taken the kitchen at Piramide under his creative wing. The rumor was true and the food was better then I had ever had at Maria?s (not to make them sound bad). I had a salad full of pineapple and jicama with a spicy orange dressing that was sooooo good. The portion was HUGE ($7)!
This is where the wine started. A very slick manager(although I expected someone who was Spanish, not a tall dark and handsome *wine talking* trendy park slope guy) came over to see how our evening was going and offered some tastes of wine to go with the starters. The prices on the wine list are so cheap in comparison to other restaurants I dine at (mostly NYC) with most offered by the glass. After tasting a few and talking about salad and wine being a hard match we found a winner (Verdejo from Spain $7gl).
Dinner- Steak, shrimp, Mexican cheese and fresh vegetables all came out sizzling in a Mojecate sp?; you know the lava mortar they make guacamole in. It was served with rice, beans and tortillas. It was to die for. I motioned for the manager and he arrived with three tastes of wine not even knowing I was going to ask about what to drink and quickly had me hooked on a Grenache (7.50gl). The meat was perfect and the jumbo shrimp spicy and fresh. Great beans not refried and fresh fluffy yellow rice made the meal.
Dessert needs to wait for another time, I was full and buzzing.
TRY THIS PLACE! IT IS AMAZING, EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!
Hope this is helpful!
Cannot top this spot in Brooklyn – I am in love with this little place. Great food. Great dining experience all together. Ownera nd staff are very kind as well.
Modern Mexican startup in Park Slope finds elbow room in a crowded field of Fifth Avenue contenders. – The Scene
Oil paintings, dark mahogany furniture and terra cotta flooring suggest a classic--if slightly generic--Mexican motif, though a lavish tile-roofed bar ups the kitsch factor somewhat. Manu Chao tunes serenade diners who'd be just as comfortable at one of the humbler taquerias towards Sunset Park.
The upscale Mexican fare is presented with a modern spin and plenty of flourish. Chunky guacamole gets prepared tableside and pestle-ground with tomatoes, onions and jalapenos, while a rich crab quesadilla appetizer looks like the restaurant's namesake. An entree of tender prime rib-eye carne asada renders its pre-made taco accompaniment superfluous, and anchiote-marinated gilled tuna sits atop a lightly fried yucca pupusa that could easily be sold as a side dish (by the truckloads). When available, opt for a mango borracha (drunken mango) for dessert--a delightful concoction of vanilla ice cream and julienned mango heated up in a hollowed-out fruit husk and speckled with blueberries.
Hits: Attentive, well-versed service and artful presentation make this one of the better values in the area.
Misses: Though it includes Americanized dishes such as Serrano ham Benedict, the brunch menu lacks authentic fare like chilaquiles.
Delicious tableside Guacamole – Piramide Resturaunt is delicious!! Their foods are very tasteful and unique. I feel like a piece of art is being brought to me everytime I order. The plate sizes are extremely filling and you definantly get tour moneys worth. My favorite plates are:
the New York Strip it does not sound Mexican but believe me the way it is seasoned will have your mouth water!
Famous Carne Asada is just perfect. so tender and traditional you will love it.
The soups are fantastic! My favorite is the tortilla soup which is very smooth and tasteful not so spicy but MMMmmMMM!!
Everything I have tried from Piramide Is awesome I definantly recommend going there.
Any questions about the Resturaunt you can definantly e-mail me!!
ps you have to have the tableside guac made to perfection!!! Any way YOU want. Tell me that is not service!
VERY GOOD SERVICE, BEST EXPERIENCE I'VE HAD IN MONTHS – IT'S DIFFICULT TO FIND A RESTAURANT OPEN IN THE AFTERNOON IN PARK SLOPE. I WAS VERY PLEASED TO STUMBLE UPON PIRAMIDE AND HAVE THE ABILITY TO SIT DOWN AND ENJOY A MEAL ON MY LUNCH BREAK. THE SERVER I HAD WAS FUNNY AND ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH HIS JOB AND CHAT.THE PRICES WERE RESONIBLE FOR LUNCH AND EVERYTHING I HAD SEEMED VERY FRESH. I WAS CONVINCED TO COME BACK FOR DINNER AND WAS AGAIN VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE AND IMMPRESSED WITH THE WINE LIST THEY HAD FOR BEING A SMALLER PLACE. ANYWAY, WOULD GO BACK ANYTIME IM IN BROOKLYN.
Really tasty food – Love the stacked enchiladas, the salmon and mashed plantains, the muffins at brunch and everything else I've eaten at this place. There's a kink or two to be worked out as far as the service is concerned, but everyone is friendly, helpful and genuinely excited about the place. Plus there's a wonderful mariachi band on Tuesday nights. What's not to love?
Great South Slope Place – Food: outstanding. i had table side made to order guacamole that was so good. i have been back to sit at the bar just for this. i started with a white bean soup which was so good i almost ordered a second bowl, my date had beef flautas which i had a few bites of, they were excellent. for dinner i had a crispy chicken dish which was boneless chicken cooked perfect with a crispy skin and a moist tender meat, sopa seca to die for and spinach which rounded it out perfect. my date went more traditional with enchiladas en mole. BEST MOLE I HAVE EVER EATEN!!! food presentation was excellent, timing was perfect and everything was above what i had expected.
Bar: beer and wine only, they told me the liquor license is still pending. the wine list is one of the best i have seen in park slope. 14 or 15 wines by the glass with prices that seemed way below the crazy markups most places charge us. great beer selection as well. ranging from Mexican to local micro brews.
i highly recommend this place to all. saw a sign on the way out that said mariachis every Thursday night. I will be back just for that.
too excited – After my favorite Park Slope brunch places, Beso and Jack's, both closed over the last couple months I was excited to see Piramide open up. But, I tried it today for the first time and I won't be back. The huevos rancheros tasted fine and came with coffee, juice (Tropicana), serve-yourself muffins and fruit for $12, so that wasn't the problem. The problem was that the waiter and other staff members were really slow and not very attentive. For example, water wasn't filled, plates weren't removed, and printing out the check and running my card took over 20 minutes. The place just seemed a little disorganized and the wait staff seemed either zoned out or overwhelmed. The food is not unique or good enough to make me want to go regardless of the service. Jack's service was always a little slow too, but the prices, the amount of food you got, and the laidback atmosphere outweighed it.
