I ate here last summer and had an incredible house-made ravioli. The baby beet salad was amazing. Great quality, but maybe not the mind-bending experience that Michelin star led me to imagine.

.

Last night I visited Dressler with a friend of mine, forgetting that I had actually already been there a few years ago.


After walking in, the attractive and affable hostess handled things well. I would have preferred for her to wait on us all evening, rather than our mediocre server.


I had a pan-roasted sweetbread appetizer, served on a bed of cauliflower and a bean puree of some sort. This was an excellent appetizer. My only compliment is that the tastes became a bit too muddied when combined and didn't hold their own, but the final taste from said combination was quite good.


For the entree I had the Cider Braised Pork Shank with braised red cabbage, creamy spaetzle & whole grain mustard. The pork was tender and easily fell off the bone, but the taste of it wasn't superb. The spaetzle was great and in combination with the cabbage tasted really "homey" and comforting. Overall I would say this was a good dish with the spaetzle being the best element but pleasurable as a whole.


For dessert we split the Warm Banana Tart Tatin with rhum ice cream, and macadamia nut brittle. I was excited to think about the nut brittle with the ice cream, but the dish didn't strike me as expected. I accompanied it with a Tokaji wine, which was excellent, as they so often are. The tatin was a bit difficult to eat and the crumb wasn't elegant and detracted from the experience. Next time I would go for something different, like the panna cotta or maybe even the cheese cake.


I would return to this restaurant, and consider it to be one of the many quality destinations in Williamsburg. But, prior to returning, I will visit other restaurants on my list. It would take another visit for me to decide whether or not this has a permanent spot on my list.

Pros: Food, Drinks

Cons: Ok wine menu, a bit pricey.

My wife and I love this place. The staff is very attentive, the atmosphere is very stylish and chic and the food is outstanding. My only problem with the place is that it's somewhat hard to get to by train.

This is a lovely date restaurant. The interior is cozy, warm and inviting, just how you want it when you want to enjoy the company of a special someone. Decent selection of wines by the glass, which I always consider important. The last time we went there, it was a warm evening and we had to wait about 10 minutes. The food is all very good, with the appetizers perhaps a bit more memorable. Just remember -- a safe bet for a date restaurant, you will have fun and make a good impression!

Came here for my husband's birthday and called ahead to make reservation and let them know it's a birthday dinner (hint, hint). They not only didn't put a candle in dessert, our waitress didn't put two-and-two together when he mentioned to her it was his birthday. Tsk. In any case, the food was very tasty - the raviolini was absolute perfection - Spring on a plate! The hangar steak, however, was charred black (we ordered it medium) and the seasonal black sea bass was tiny for the $32 it cost. The bread pudding was just ok, it would have been disappointing if it wasn't for the scotch sauce. We expected a little bit more for the money, especially in Brooklyn.

We went on a Saturday night without reservations, recommend making reservations. Our party of four spent a few moments at the bar, it was lively and we didn't mind. Once we were seated, we ordered appetizers to start. The presentation was creative and the food tasted amazing. My main dish was very good, everyone seemed to enjoy their dishes and we promised we would go again.

Pros: FOOD!!!!

My wife and I have been to Dressler four or five time and have consistently received very good service and excellent food. It is a bit pricey for Williamsburg, but that is the direction the neighborhood is moving and other restaurants are quickly catching up. The atmosphere is comfortably elegant, and, unlike some other reviewers, we never felt rushed or that the service was lacking. The food is hands down the best in Williamsburg, and probably the best we have had in Brooklyn. We highly recommend the restaurant. The one negative, which has been mentioned before, is that the dining room can get a bit loud, although not any more so than an equivalent Manhattan restaurant. This is a minor nit, however, and Dressler is our favorite neighborhood restaurant on the whole.

A very appealing exterior in a hipster redoubt, a tastefully decorated interior, excellent meat and fish entrees, okay desserts, ample if overpriced (blame the euro?) wine list... why the two stars? As at least another reviewer has indicated, the rushed, spotty and on more than one occasion snotty service ruined what could have been a pleasant meal for me and my guests. Attracted by the food, I have returned several times, and found the waiting staff consistently... inconsistent at best. They offer reservations as late as 10PM, but if you linger past the staff bedtime, rest assured they will let you know in more ways than one. Another relatively minor peeve is the din in the room at rush hour: it makes conversations in a normal tone of voice impossible. Not very romantic, is it?

We went to this restaurant based on a strong recommendation from a client who is a chef that tests recipes. The restaurant has been on our radar for well over a year and on this night we finally decided to give it try. Reservations were easy to make, but time options were limited. (we made the reservation that day, so it was understandable)

We arrived and were seated quickly on this rainy night. The atmosphere was pleasant and the place quite attractive. Our seating was , well, "eh", to say the least...sort of in the middle of the room. But it was nice enough.

Service seemed pleasant and professional. We ordered our food , appetizer arrived very quickly and was DELICIOUS. However, we started to notice a pattern of things moving very quickly. Where as the food was all interesting, well prepared and very good, the speed with which our dishes were taken away and theand wanted to savour and enjoy it) was distressing. We were asked, literally 5 times and by 3 different people if we were done with our dessert plate. There was some left over and we were sitting and chatting over coffee. I finally said, "no we are not done and I'd appreciate not being asked again".

So all in all a very good restaurant, but for the cost ($140 for 2 people- ordering 1 app, 2 entree, 1 dessert, 2 coffees and 3 glasses of wine) I don't want to be asked if I am done so many times. It felt rushed and it was unappreciated

Cons: they rushed us

Went on a Friday evening before the crowds showed up and had an incredible meal. Scallops were perfectly sauteed and cooked to perfection. The monk fish wrapped in bacon was also fabulous, the bacon seemed almost a part of the monk fish - you can't tell where one begins and the other ends. We did not have room for dessert but ordered anyways, we ate it all!! Details are seriously their main focus, from the beautiful chandeliers to the ornate bar stools you're eyes would also have a feast.

The decor is very cool, but in a not-so-obvious way. If you have an eye for detail, you will really appreciate the interior design of this place, especially the lighting fixtures and accessories.

The food was excellent. I got the pea soup, scallop appetizer, and past with veal ragout appetizer. All were divine.

I would definitely go back to this restaurant.

Northside of Bedford beware....the Southside's got Dressler now. The food was very fresh and so good. We had a main meal of just apps. Noteworthy dishes are the artichoke salad, the raviolini with pea/fontina, and the onion rings. The presentation is lovely. Desserts were oh so good and different. Chocolate foam, peanut brittle, and peanut butter ice cream? Can't get better than that.

Just had an amazing meal at Dressler last night with my husband, daughters and their friends. Since I love Dumonts, I was anxious to try this new spot. Had the beet salad which is amazing just as it is at Dumonts! Everyone loved their entrees...mine was the halibut which was delicious. Service was great and the restaurant is beautiful with great ironwork. Can't wait to have dinner there again! Jan from Maine

I took my friend here for her birthday dinner. From appetizers to dessert, we have to say we were very satisfied. All our plates were cleaned off.

I didn't have a single problem with the service like the other reviews, in fact, we were always having our water glasses refilled, I must have said "thank you" more times than I can recall ever saying before in a restaurant.

We went without reservations and got a table right away. I fear the day that Dressler becomes too popular and perhaps develops that overpriced, "snooty" attitude that Manhattan restaurants with lesser food seem to exude. I almost want to keep this place a secret but I think it already isn't, it's just that Manhattan monkeys can't be bothered to make the trip. They'd rather rub elbows in an overcrowded, overpriced, super-scene of stressed out beautiful people who wish everybody else was dead.

I liked the decor and the prices were appropriate. The only complaint would be that the sound inside is a bit loud, but that's it! I'll go again for another nice occasion!

I've been here 5 or 6 times, once for dinner, all other times for brunch. I love that this place is here. Its beautiful, hip & romantic, the drinks are killin' (sadly you can only have one because they're terribly expensive), and the food is out-of-sight!! Brunch is comforting with many deliciously updated standard favorites, and some interesting & yummy additions that are bound to be Dressler classics. Dinner is of course fantastic. The orange juice is too small for the asking price so you'd be better off without. Unfortunately, as with the other Dumont-owned places, the waitstaff is horrible and clueless, which places a mega-damper on your meal. Aside from that its honestly a great place to drop alot of dough, impress the parents or in-laws who don't 'get' your neighborhood, or a have a romantic or celebratory dinner.

My boyfriend and I are foodies, live in the neighborhood, and ate at Dressler last week (our 5th time). The food is wonderful, the wine list is solid, and the front door staff and bartenders could not be better. The wines by the glass are a little pricey but worth every dime. The wait staff, however, could still use a lesson or two and should be a lot more attentive. I recommend that the wait staff walk over to Baci & Abbracci on Grand Street and learn the meaning of excellent service. We would go to Dressler more often if the service matched the cuisine.

went here last night with my parents for my bday...i've been to the other dumont places many times so dressler was high on my list of places to check out. from the friendly and attentive staff to the decor the place was great. but who cares what the place looks like if the food sucks....def not the case here. my mom ordered the butternut squash ravioli, my dad order the pork chop, and i had the monk loin. all 3 of us cleared our plates and were fully satisfied. my dad actually said "this might be the best pork chop i've ever had." thats a hard thing to accomplish b/c i'm sure my dad has eaten a lot of pork chops in his life. the desert was the apple tart with rum raisin ice cream....holy moly it was good. all in all the meal was pretty close to perfect. the only downfall was the cold rush of air anytime the door opened....they had a curtain to try and block the cold, but it was 15 degrees out so the curtain didnt do such a great job. go here, you will not be disapointed.

For the person who hated this place and gave it an average review, I'm not sure how that can be: either you a) caught them on opening night, still working out the kinks; b) spend your time at the highest-rated restaurants in the world; c) work for a rival establishment. I'm betting on "C".

The bottom line: I am big Luger's fan and have been going there for 30 years. There are some great cheap and mid-level eats in Williamsburg - Dumont, Diner, Fornino, Brick Oven Pizza Gallery, Egg, etc. But getting to really solid, moderate to higher end fare, the Burg needs some help. Luger's is a staple. Aurora is a nice addition. And now Dressler. For my money, this is the finest of the bunch - I have been about 5 times and look forward to it each time. A very simple menu - with amazing appetizers (their salads are so simple and delicious) and a nice array of entrees. The one definite miss is the steak - just not that flavorful and questionable on matching the temperature that I ordered - and their desserts are very good, but just not that memorable.

Beyond that, I love this place. From decor to service to meal to wines to price, this is a terrific addition to a neighborhood that badly needs this flight of food.

I was walking by Dressler and noticed it was open, on a Sunday morning...finally a new nice place in the neighborhood for sunday brunch. The prices seem good, and food great as usual. I am a fan of Dressler, I have been in Williamsburg for almost 10 years now, and it is one of my new favorite spots. I can't wait to go back with friends for mimosa's, eggs, french toast and quiche! Thanks Dressler, for the beautiful and yummy place to grab brunch on Sunday mornings.

Cons: Wish I had known it was serving Brunch sooner

By far, the best food and ambiance in Williamsburg. The food and service of this place is definitely comparable to any highly ranking restaurant in Manhattan, and the prices are decent ofr the value of the food. Will go back again and again!

I was here for dinner this past weekend and I have to say it was one of the best restaraunts I've EVER been to. I am a total foodie, having been to most of the 4 and 5 star places in manhattan. Food at Dressler was so delicious and fresh. I had halibut which was crisped to perfection above a salad of heirloom tomatoes and green and white beans. Superb. Cocktails were also great and the peanut butter parfait dessert is not to be missed. The artichoke salad was also excellent, though it had a suspiciously 'cheeto'-like after taste... other than that, I have a new favorite restaurant!

I've eaten here 4 times and its been great every time. No bread problems, the service is always very friendly and the food is amazing (especially for the price). My one comment would be the wine price per glass, which is high, but the bottle prices arent bad. One of the top 5 restaurants in Brooklyn.

I didn't really know what to expect from the the Dressler. i have been going to Dumont for years, and i am a huge fan of the good food and relaxed atmosphere. So when i walked in i was just blown away by the lighting, flowers, wood and iron work, a reservationist, and a full bar. it's gorgeous. Taking everything good about Dumont, & making it better and a touch more upscale.

Other than the bread, which was stale (the manager told us they were having trouble with the bakery), we were thoroughly impressed. We especially like the crispy artichoke and white bean salad (you will think the artichoke are fried potatoes). The free form ravioli was inventive, the sauce being the best part. Wine is good but a bit pricey for Brooklyn. They seem to be banking on the fact that there will be some overflow from Peter Luger'sand I fear they may be right. Eat here before all the Manhattanites discover it.
