Bijan's Brooklyn Ratings and Reviews
Went for a birthday dinner with a group. It was cold outside so the fireplace was nice. It's a somewhat small food/drink menu, but everything was good and reasonably priced. They brought out dessert with a candle and helped sing Happy Birthday. I would definitely go back.
Had been wanting to try this for a while; it always looks so cute when I pass by. But the problems started right when we walked in the door - the host told me that they were full and that they couldn't keep our reservation; there wasn't even an apology. We ended up getting seats at the bar which seemed like an okay option, except the service was so poor we spent about 2 hours total waiting on food and drinks (we only ordered pancakes and eggs Benedict, nothing special). Food was okay when it came out, not enough syrup for the pancakes (they even ran out of the buckwheat pancakes on the menu so they gave us regular pancakes) and were missing french fries, which they eventually gave us after we reminded them.
We had to ask for coffee several times, as well as milk and sugar and water. We weren't even asked if we wanted additional cocktails until we closed out the check. At no point was it mentioned that the place was cash only; luckily we had enough to cover it, but the table behind us was furious.
Only good news was that they gave us each a free brunch cocktail to try to make up for the service issues. Unfortunately nothing could have made the experience better at that point.
We showed up at 12:15pm for our 12:30pm brunch reservations and the restaurant was closed. It was 8 of us so we had to scramble last minute to find somewhere else to eat. No call or email from the restaurant. A couple of us walked by a few hours later and they were opened. Needless to say that we will not be making reservations here again.
Had brunch at this restaurant to kick off a bachelorette party because of the great food reviews and fixe prix menu that included a specialty cocktail. As soon as we walked in, everyone was remarking about the cool ambiance: the Moroccan lamps, hanging plants, and beautiful paintings. At 1pm on a Saturday, the restaurant wasn't very crowded; it had another big group and another pair of diners. The wait staff was very friendly. All 7 guests loved their food (lamb burger and persian omelet were big hits) and drinks, some ordering more than one.
I really like the feel of the place, and in the winter the fireplace is great. But we were there on a night that was fairly empty and while the server was very friendly it felt very hard to get her attention, get more water, order another drink, get the check...The food is good and it is a nice menu of options. We all felt the music was too loud for a pleasant dinner conversation, so I think it might be better for larger groups or for drinks.
We have come for both brunch and dinner! Absolutely love this spot!! It truly is a gem in our neighborhood! $15 all inclusive brunch is hard to beat! ... And they have a fireplace for those cold days! The food is always on point!!! Try the chicken for dinner or the Persian omelette for brunch!
While my friends ordered burgers and fries, I wanted to order more authentic food, and made the biggest mistake. The soup, rice, and beef kabobs had no flavor, even after I added salt. The waitress asked how it was and I said I wasn't thrilled, but there was no effort to make another suggestion. It was kind of pointless to ask what I thought. Very disappointing experience for a Christmas dinner. I do not go to a restaurant like this for the best option to be a burger and fries. The dessert was fine, at least. We did tip the server extremely well, as it was Christmas.
We waited for over 45 minutes and our food and drinks never arrived. Everything smelled delicious but after complaining and getting our drinks (and waiting another 15 minutes, an hour in total) we decided to leave. I guess our waitress was too busy and she forgot about us after taking our order ... but It seemed like they didn´t make any kind of effort to fix the problem in due time . It is actually the first time I´ve had such a terrible experience in a restaurant in Brookyln.
I came here on a Friday with my Girlfriend to meet my Mom and step father, as we came to visit from SF. It was great as they were meeting for the first time. As fate would have it, I am writing this 6 hours after he died today, unexpectedly. At least, he experienced a great restaurant and atmosphere which afforded him the space to act in a more jovial manner than I ever saw him before he passed. ThanK you Bijan.
Great food and cocktails here, they have a happy hour from 5-7pm and they certainly don't water the cocktails down at this time!
We ate the pulled pork sandwich, the Bijan burger and Rosemary chicken with truffle mash, all were delicious and we had the carrot cake and tiramisu for dessert, yum!
Definitely recommended popping in even if you're not from the neighbourhood.
I had been to Bijan's for drinks twice before making this reservation for lunch. My drinks experiences were fantastic; lunch was mediocre. The waitstaff was limited so I understand why our server was rushed to walk away before I finished ordering, "Can I get that with fries not chips?" He nodded but I had a feeling he wouldn't include fries. Obviously my order didn't include fries when it came out, and when I asked him about it, he asserted that I didn't order fries. With witnesses to confirm and the lunch crowd rush quelled, he obliged and was nice enough to comp the fries. After all that, the fries were sadly mediocre; as was my grilled chicken sandwich.
