If you're looking for an authentic, local experience with fresh and amazing fish, this is the place. In a very quiet neighborhood, this place is a hidden gem. Worth the trek

Located just over the BQE from Carroll Gardens, this miniature fish restaurant is a can't miss for us. The fish is extraordinarily fresh, the service thoughtful and pleasant, and the bill incredibly reasonable! And, best of all, it's BYO! But boy can it be tight seating, especially in the front! You can order with complete confidence across the menu. No... More

I went back to this restaurant and brought some special friends with me. We had another wonderful experience. I was so excited as they had the soft shell crab and that is my favorite along with one my friend's favorite. We ordered the soft shell crab and the salmon. For dessert we ordered the cherry tart and the berry tart,... More

My husband and I went to Petite Crevette for a special celebration and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is very small, does not take reservations, is B.Y.O.B. and is cash only! With all of those elements, it's affordable, but often hard to get into, with lines of folks outside waiting to get in. We were lucky and walked right... More

I really wanted to love this place; it is so quaint and cute! It's a BYOB, so don't forget the wine! In a nutshell: the menu was rather limited and food was average. It also wasn't the traditional French food that I was expecting. The place is tiny and very cramped. Service was good. I can't say I hated the... More

The food was very good but I would not say excellent. The service was excellent . Brooklyn has so many choices fine dining it is hard to separate yourself from all the other great places. The restaurant is very small and some would say intimate. It was slightly noisy. The mustard encrusted salmon was wonderful but the highlight was the... More

We have loved dining at this charming, intimate restaurant since the day it opened. The personable chef/owner is always on hand for friendly conversation. The food is delicious. The fish is fresh. There are always wonderful choices. With restaurant wine prices so high these days, the BYOB policy is definitely a plus.

My husband and I were very excited about trying this place because of the reviews. Restaurant was extremely hot cause the place is extremely tight if you are claustrophobic this is not your place, the menus are in the walls written very small and almost impossible to read we have to go online to read it. We had the fried... More

This cozy and casual restaurant, in Brooklyn, is one of the best Fish dishes ever. Is all about the Provencale fish experience, with delicious seafood, whole grilled branzino fish, cioppino with an amazing suculent wine broth to lick your fingers. And much more divine dishes. Try the famous fried oysters with the spicy mustard dash on the side. Best of... More
