a brooklyn birthday party – We went to Superfine for my 25th birthday and had such an amazing time. The wine selection was superb and the staff was very attentive (we had called ahead a few days since we would be a big group). One thing to know about this restaurant---the menu changes daily, which I love. Everyone really enjoyed their food. Its the kind of restaurant where you won't get in and out in under an hour, but you will have such a good time while you are there you won't notice! I also noticed this restaurant was recently included in a new Emily Griffen novel called "Babyproof."
excellent seafood; dreadfully slow service – came here on a sunday night -- cute, hip setting in renovated warehouse. the seafood is extremely fresh and delicious: try the grilled shrimp, grilled squid, and catches of the day. the pork chop and burger were really dry and bland, though. the wait staff is friendly but WAY UNDER STAFFED (looked like only 2 chefs in the kitchen) -- we waited almost 50 minutes for our apps and nearly 1 1/2 hours for our entrees. it's really not the waitstaff/chefs' fault -- it's just that management needs to put more people on duty for prime time hours.
Fine by Me – I had a friend who had her 4-0 b-day celebration there and we had a great time. It was a nice size and everybody was sociable. Met some DUMBO neighbors and they were fun as well. Would come from thr Bronx to do it again!
I take my out of town visitors to superfine – The food here is fabulous and the prices are decent. everything I've had has been very good and fresh. At the bar i had a delicious burger with home made fries. For brumch the huervos rancheros, for dinner usually a steak. They use local ingredients and they know what they're doing in the kitchen.
I can't comprehend reviewers who say they staff has an attitude. In new york, you simply have to smile and say hello to someone, and they will acknowlege you. but if you treat them like they are waiter / waitress robots and don't look them in they eye then maybe they will treat you that way! The service is only slow when they are over crowded.
Blue grass brunch is an experience, make reservations and go this weekend. after bruch hang around and have a beer.
started fine, then the food took FOREVER – i was excited to check this place out.. the setup is cool with pool table and chill area in front and dining on side and back.. only problem was i went for dinner not drinks and some pool.. they had only like 2 cooks and waiters/waitresses were slow.. the food took forever to come out.. food was decent, but not worth the long wait
Overpriced? Hardly. – I've read other uses complain that Superfine is a bit pricey. Well, I can tell you that coming from Manhattan, Superfine's prices are a welcome change! My husband and I ate dinner there last weekend and the food was very good, and very reasonably priced, we thought. He ordered spaghettini with sausage, and at $13, it seemed a bagain; in Manhattan some DINERS charge that much for pasta. Not to mention, the bowl was literally brimming with their homemade sausage -- they didn't skimp at all!
I had the grilled shrimp and scallops which was served with lentils and bok choy. It was a little bit more expensive at $19, but it was a good size portion, and so fresh! They obviously use the best ingredients, and considering that, they manage to keep prices down!
The ambiance is also really cool! It's a fun spot.
One of NYC's Best-Kept Secrets – Superfine is my preferred destination in the city when I'm looking for a casual, hip atmosphere, extraordinary food at decent prices and/or just a place to get a good drink, chat with the bartender and shoot some (free) pool. The food is simple, sophisticated and unbelievably good. Their everchanging menu, which always features a stellar and exotic grilled fish, is small but exquisitely done. Prices are reasonable, and they serve some of the best fries in town.
The crowd is generally thirty-something, alternative/artsy types who have moved beyond the silly W'burg scene and have learned how to dress. It's one of the few places in town where people of varied sexual orientations and races mix and mingle, which makes it an oasis in the Bantustan-like world of NYC bars and clubs.
With its fun-lovin' personality and finger-lickin' food, it's a slice of the South in DUMBO. – The Scene
Superfine is an easygoing, instantly appreciable neighborhood hangout that boasts a kitchen staff armed with serious cooking chops. Inside the capacious, brick-walled restaurant, which sits below Brooklyn's entrance to the Manhattan Bridge, hipsters shoot pool, couples down draft beers and families gather for dinner. Owners are openly welcoming of small children.
The daily-changing menu, scrawled on large dry-erase boards, offers a blend of haute cuisine and Texas roadhouse fare. Winners include succulent seared duck breast with rutabaga and sliced shiitake mushrooms, beefy steak au poivre with thin, salty fries and juicy pork chop with garlicky mashed potatoes and bitter greens. Brunch is less ambitious, but just as good: Try the thick burrito laced with zippy green chili. Desserts--particularly the homemade ice cream and tall coconut layer cakes--are essential.
how have i not written a review yet? i love this place! it is truly the best looking bar in brooklyn- what an awesome space- vast, smart, chic but not annoyingly trendy. the menu changes daily which is awesome but is slightly overpriced. drink prices are great though. the service varies- sometimes very snotty and too cool, other times more friendly and sweet. a great staple though. im very happy its in the neighborhood.
Fine. Super fine. – Large space, exposed brick with a pseudo-1950 "thing" going ... a bit like one of the sets from the movie DIVA. Very pleasant looking bar area and a lounge area with free pool. The restaurant area is a few steps up and towards the back. Attentive service (I've never had my water glass filled so frequently) and surprisingly good food. The menu changes daily. The red lentil soup was excellent (wasn't actually red, but what do I know), the cheese plate was diverse and tasty, the "Greens" turned out to be a wonderful salad with chicken perfectly grilled -- not a bit dry. Good portions. The wine list didn't look all that great, but there was a very interesting selection of beers on tap. Noisy, but not overpoweringly so. Will definitely go back -- if only to shoot pool and see what new ideas the chef has had.
