“Maybe I will go back some time for drinks since the atmosphere is so nice.”
“The dessert, profiterole, consisted of stale, tiny, un-filled (!)”
“Plus - $16 for a yummy brunch and unlimited drinks is great deal, even for Park Slope!”
“Nice setting, but bland and boring food”
“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.”
“best restaurant on 7th avenue”
“Maybe I will go back some time for drinks since the atmosphere is so nice.”
“Food great, service great.”
“And the prices are reasonable.”
only good thing is the bar. The only thing that saved Sette for so many years is the fact that they have a bar in there restaurant, as far as the food is concerned it is not what it used to be. I ate the pasta with a red wine to drink and buy the time I got the check it was really expensive for a small portion. The bathroom was a mess and smelled. The only thing that made me keep coming back was the bar a lot of other aspects about this store have been failing within the past few years. It didn't surprise me when some friends of mine brought it to my attention that they closed after years of being the area. It is unfortunate because this use to be a good store to go eat never thought I would get food poisoning from the pasta.
Everything was great.... Food great, service great. Price is good for Park Slope.
Great dinner, great service. The place is pretty expensive, but the food was incredible. Definitely some generous portions. My wife easily got 2 meals out of her chicken marsala, which came with chunks of sausage, and I could have got 2 out of my hanger steak, which was served over some delicious form of chunky mashed potatoes, but I never leave any steak on the plate ;-) We split an appetizer, had 1 glass of wine and an entree each and it came to around $100 including tip, however I knocked it down to $75 including tip with a gift certificate from Restaurant(dot)com. The manager of the place was a great guy. The server gave him our certificate when we sat down and when he handed us the check it wasn't applied, but the manager was standing at the bar nearby and came over and took care of everything. The thing I appreciated most is that they add 20% tip to the pre-discounted total as part of the deal, so he did that himself and then wrote it in on my credit card slip before he gave it to me leaving no confusion for myself or the server. I'd give it a go if you want to try something new.
perfect family place... or just a great night out.... I found my expiernce at sette to be totaly different from the reviews i have just read on this page.. 1st off i have 4 kids and it is not easy going to any resturant with them . i was walking in park slope and i read a sign kids free mon& tues 4-7 . i thought maybe lets try somthing new . not only was the wait staff amazing . the maniger was soo plesant and told me if there was anything i needed to just let her know. i realized that i got there a little after 7 olcock after ordering all my food i though oh no this bill is going to be to much i asked to speak to the owner( who i thought was amazing and very nice) and he told me that even though it was only 5 mins after 7 oclock that it was okay ....i guess if you just learn how to talk to people you might just find that they will help you ....sette is a great family place or just a good fun night out ...
One of the Best in Park Slope!.
While it's a little on the expensive side, Sette serves upscale authentic Italian bistro cuisine in a warm, yet swanky setting.
Everyone on here has commented that the service was sub par, but my experience was to the contrary, and I visited on a busy Saturday night.
The arugala, proschuitto, and fresh mozzerella salad was to die for, as well as the beef tip entree served with asparagus and creamy homemade mashed potatoes.
DO NOT GO HERE We got Ripped off Big time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
My friend and I (Both single mothers living in Park Slope) have been to many "kids eat free nights" before, but SETTE was THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!! They have a sign outside that boasts it kids eat free Monday & Tuesday menu. What they fail to tell you is that it is only offered from 4-7pm. After being seated at 7:05pm we ordered from the kids menus (5 mini pizzas) and adult menus (tasting menu). When the bill came we were charged an appalling $55 dollars extra for the kids pizzas. When we asked about the charge they told us the time frame was clearly printed on the menu. Feeling embarrassed we paid the check and left. On the way out we read the menu posted at the door.
It clearly states: Tasting Menu 4-7PM Kids Eat Free Monday & Tuesday (no time frame) WHAT A RIPOFF!!!!!! I would have much rather gone to Two Boots or Scottaditto, where they have some resoect for hard working parents.
You think your kids eat for free.
Ok so we are park slope parents that sometimes don't liketo cook , so between my three friends we have four children ,and are always having play dates so our four children turns into sometimes 6 .......
We love to eat out , and in Park Slope you would think it would be easy to find Kid Friendly dining.
So going against the grain we decieded to give Sette a chance since we saw posted "kids eat for free MON and Tues."
I was with My sister and two adult friends (4 adults) and our typical 6 kids ( never a problem anywhere else). They seat us about 7pm as we proceed to order, never once did the waitress give us alarm that kids eat free ends at 7pm
Low and behold the check comes and all the kids dinners are on the check... granted we failed to asked , about kids eating for free, but with all the hupla and advertisments you would think your coming into a resturant with a grip of children you might want to mention that clause.
However the hostess came over , they didn't call the manager like we asked, and they proceeded to tell us that the 4-7 is clearly on the menu. When we looked , it was like a musicains contract , the 4-7 limit was hiding in a section no where near the mention of kids eat for free advertisments.(it was near the pre fix menu )
End result they made us feel like it was all our fault, and too bad for not being able to decode their menu.
I am writing this because I don't like to be tricked into eating in a place that poses to be kid friendly .
So 6 pizza's and 4 entree's turned out to be 200.00 which if fine if we knew before hand . And if it was pizza the kids were eating Two boots or Pino's would have been 150.00 less. or Scottadito who truly has a kid eat for free menu with no hidden agenda's
Our lesson is read the fine print ... If you want to be a neighborhood resturant you cannot trick your neighbors into eating at your place.
Nice setting, but bland and boring food. The outdoor patio is great in the summertime, but, unfortunately, for what is supposed to be an upscale place, the food here is just not up to snuff. It wasn't bad food, but not memorable enough for me to describe in detail either. Fairly bland. Nice wines, though.
JUST TERRIBLE. Went a few weeks ago with my Lady and mom for Sunday brunch. The first nice spring day of the year. First time there and figured it would be a treat on top of walking around the neighborhood. The price fix sign outside of $16 doesn't tell the real story. Firstly the coffee (both reg and decaf) was cold and not fresh. The bread basket or sour basket was ugh. Served with all you can drink bloody's and some mombo drink. Only my lady drinks (so their ahead on this one) but guess what - after only two drinks they ran out of mix. I guess if the 3 of us wanted one we would have to choose who wouldn't get one. The meal itself wasn't half bad. Atmosphere is ok. But hold on there's more. The $16 is really $18 as about all the brunch choices are an additional $2. So after all the bill with tip was over $65..I always tip no matter (the waitress was so so). Alot of $$ for a sh-tty meal. Keep away on Sunday..
Mediocre at best. We went to Sette for their Valentine's prix fix, which to be fair can be treacherous at even the best restaurant. Here's what happened. They lost our reservation, so we were sat close to the door, which does not have one of those winter insulation things, so it was freezing. As people filled in to the tables around us, they started to receive drinks and appetizers. Our waitress had not come to us yet. When she did, we ordered two appetizers. The asparagus "fondue" was limp, overcooked asparagus in a non-descript, lukewarm bottled cheese-like sauce. The water-cress salad was dressed in same tasteless sauce. The entree, spaghettini frutti de mar was actually decent, although the shrimp and calamari were overcooked in mine and it was sorely lacking for the parmesan cheese which made its way to other tables but not ours. The dessert, profiterole, consisted of stale, tiny, un-filled (!) profiterole shells. Maybe they ran out of the filling? Fortunately, cocoa bar is right across the street and we got our sugar fix there. Definitely won't make this a neighborhood favorite.
