Surly staff – What is so hard to understand about bringing a sharp knife, a bottle of mustard, and a couple of small spoons to the table, to go with the giant hot dog and the bowl of peas that I am attempting to share with my three-year-old? Is it possible to just honor the request, without the eye rolling, shuffling, and getting it wrong... every... single... time... And, for the love of God, clean the toilets. The whole place smells like piss.
Dirty – I had an experience of seeing Teresa's kitchen. It is plain dirty. There are roches in the bread, that is kept in dark place. The stuff is too busy to wash hands and besides there's no soap at the sink under the counter. The food looks and tastes delicious, but is really dirty.
Like Mom's - Only Cheaper – Nothing fancy here. Just plain good home cooking. Teresa's is a nice mix of traditional Polish cooking with a heathy mix of American. The prices can't be beat. If you take away the two most expensive meals (rib eye steak and rack of lamb - each $16), the meals range from $7-10 and include 2 sides.
Although the service can be a bit brusque at times, the food is always good, hearty and hot. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.
poor food and customer service – i ordered an omelet, my husband, pierogies. pierogies were cold, omelet was raw on inside. asked for oatmeal instead. oatmeal was cold! then, the waiter had nerve to charge me for the fruit salad and bloody mary (which we didn't drink) that came with the omelet (brunch special). i said, i never would have ordered the fruit salad separately, it came along with the brunch. then he said, "well, you ate it." of course i ate it, he brought it out 20 minutes before the omelet. i spoke to the manager, who did not apologize for the RAW food and haggled me over the 5.00 for fruit and drink (which we didn't want, came with brunch). didn't apologize and ask to make it up to us, didn't try to accomodate us. spent so much time haggling, i got a parking ticket for being over the meter! NEVER eat here again.
Brooklyn Height's Homage to Poland – Teresa's delicious homemade Polish fare is as authentic as it is delicious. Nestled in BH's restaurant row, close to the Promenade, Teresa's location and cuisine is pristine. Breakfast, lunch or dinner - Teresa's serves up a hearty meal each and every time. Their white borsht (served on Saturday's) is to die for. The modest staff and affordability makes for the perfect refuge after a hike across the bridge, a jog by the promenade, or a day's worth of shopping. Enjoy!
Polish food in the Heights – The Polish food here is great, especially the pierogies, and it is very cheap. Breakfasts are also excellent; try the ricotta cheese pancakes.
Tantalizing Teresa's – I grew up on Czech/Croatian food and Teresa's is pretty close to that. The Stuffed Cabbage is amazing along with the Pierogies and Kilbosa. Teresa's offers a large brunch/breakfast menu also. The blintz are out of this world.
