Brooklyn >Night Of The Cookers
“The decor was very nice, but the service was awful.”
“The drinks are disgusting and the service.”
“The food was excellent.”
“There is never an excuse for poor service because there are so many other choices.”
“If you are looking for a place to have a few drinks and good appetizers this is a nice little place to go.”
“went back to this restaurant during the Dance Africa weekend at Brooklyn Academy of Music - never again - the service was subpar and so was the food.”
“The drinks are a great value, but the martini glasses, or as I like to call them shot glasses with a stem is unacceptable.”
calm and relaxed. Cute date spot. Food is good. Nice atmosphere
Great Casual Dining, But needs sum season!. I visited Night of the Cookers, Christmas Eve 2009 with my best friend. I heard about this place from my boss as well as my best friend and they were talking ALOT about how good the food was but I was not impressed, yet it was'nt horrible. I ordered the fried chicken with mac and cheese and a side order of Candied Yams. The portion size was great, chicken very moist but it lacked so much seasoning, Parts of it lacked taste, at times I was biting into pure oil and fried flour, I had to ask for Salt, Pepper and ketchup to spice it up. The Mac & Cheese very bland, a mixture of sharp cheddar used to sharply; Candy Yams was a bit undercooked (just slightly). My friend had the blackened Catfish which she claims was too salty on this visit, but her collard greens were 2 DIE for. We both had sum Fuzzy Muzzy drinks that were too strong for a bunch of weak 21 yr olds new to the alcohol game lol, but they were still yummy after we watered it down. I gave this place 4 stars because the food wasnt horrible (after all we did clean our plates) and the atmosphere is relaxing and calm. Dim lights, elegant seating, great neighborhood, No loud noises, sensual music, good prices and superb service from the staff (Top of the Line, honestly). I would definetly go back for any occasion and try there other dishes. So run to Night of the Cookers now!!!!!!!
Good Spot to Check Out When In Brooklyn.
Nice Environment, Good service, Live Music (should call to get exact times). No cover, Great food...Decent Drinks...
Depending on what time you go, you may have a slight wait to be seated; but there should be room at the bar.
great food!awesome drinks!good service!. I went to the cookers for my birthday party and had a great time in the lounge. The food was great along with the drinks and service. I highly recommend this place for a good night out with family or friends.Found out that the restaurant was opened for the last eight years . Cheers!
IGNORE ANY REVIEW FROM 2007 AND EARLIER.... This restaurant use to be so good but since about 2007 the entire setup is just ridiculous. The food was unbelievably HORRIBLE. Cold, dry and bland. All of the silverware and glasses have stains on them. The drinks are disgusting and the service...I can't even begin to talk about the service. The neighborhood regulars are no more and have to say...this place is now known for having the WORST food in Brooklyn.
Best place for HORRIFIC service. I visited on May 18, 2007 with two friends for a birthday celebration. The decor was very nice, but the service was awful. The waiter never said his name and was unavailable throughout the meal. The radio was too loud and so, we had to strain to talk to each other. The mac and cheese tasted like cardboard. The waiter offered neither an apology nor a substitute when he was told abut the quality of the meal. Then, he had the nerves to have added a 20% gratuity to the bill, which I refused to pay. After waiting 15 minutes, we had to walk our check to the register because the waiter never returned. I would not return to Night of the Cookers and I do not recommend it. This place should be avoided like the plague. There is never an excuse for poor service because there are so many other choices.
really good food.
this is the best food i've had in fort greene. the collard greens were the tastiest, better than at mobay or ruthie's, and the best i've had ever, with just the right amount of seasoning. the bbq chicken was very tender, moist and perfectly seasoned. the cornbread was also amazing--perfect texture, slightly crusty on top and bottom, nice sweetness. stevie wonder (the young stevie) playing in the background, it was really nice. veliis next door may have the decor and the hipness, but the food is god-awful. chez oskar is also over-rated, and cafe lafayette has gone downhill.
this is the best food in the neighborhood, and i'm glad i found it.
pretty good. was crowded, but a concert had just let out. they said the wait would be about a half hour, and it was. food was good. service was good. live jazz band was playing that was a nice touch,but a little loud. would recommend.
I LOVE ROBERTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. OH MY GOD!!!So, A couple of friends of mine decided to go out a couple of nights ago and we decided to try out Night Of The Cookers. Let me tell you that the most memorable thing wasn't the food, which was awesome, not the drinks ( Purple Rain BABY!!!), no, It was the service. One person in Particular. Name is Roberto. This guy was amazin'. The amazin stuff began when he got to the table. We began to ask him questions to see how well he knew the menu to which he answered all and then Said " What Are you writing? A Book?". He took the time to check on us about 5 or 6 times that night and we never felt abandoned. The food was excellent. P.S. There is a guy who works with ROBERTO which he Knicknames SIDESHOW BOB. You'll Know him when you see him.
Good Food, Good Staff, Good environment. I went to this restaurant for the first time this summer, and I had A GREAT time. I took a friend with me who also never been there, and we both were impressed. First, we were seated in the room near the band. I notice how the folks at the bar were howling and cheering the band on, which reminded me of being at one of those vintage jazz club. Our food arrived. I had a stuffed salmon and it was EXCELLENT! The mac and cheese is to die for. You didn't hear me, IT'S TO DIE FOR! The greens were also good. After the band stopped playing, they threw on some house music. Nice. I'm telling you this place is happening.
