Nice evening at Pilar - good food and attentive service without being overbearing. Marinated pork was tasty, and our children had two different dishes they liked. We will return.

The food was perfect, staff very nice, ambiance ok but a little bit cold. We really enjoy that place, and the churros were incredible. Unfortunatly It was our last night in Brooklyn, because we will have been all nights eating at this place!!

My daughter and I enjoyed sandwiches here at dinner time, but although the food was good, the service was slow and the acoustics were terrible. The management should consider putting up some baffles or something to tone down the hard walls and ceiling. It would have been quieter to eat outside on the street, but it was raining.

Cool and unpretentious joint. Friendly service. Menu based on sandwiches and few salads with a Cuban twist. I enjoyed Cuban interpretation of burger.

Stayed in a B&B in Bed-Stuyvesant and walked the half mile here with 8 year old grand daughter. She is reasonably adventurous and LOVED the cuban burger. She insisted on returning the next night and we did a third night when she was otherwise occupied. All the meals were excellently prepared and nicely served.

We arrived early but found the place packed. We sat at the bar where we amused ourselves withe the menu and mojitos for half an hour before being seated. The food was served in a timely manner. The presentation was awesome. For example the maduros were a visual and gastronmic splendor. The chickpea and cauliflower salad was unique and equally... More

We returned from the Caribbean to NYC on a cold, rainy, classic North Atlantic ugly day. Ugh. But friends recommended Pilar (in a new location on Bedford at the corner of Greene) and that was a perfect bookend for the trip. Terrific Caribbean comfort food - the pollo con arroz was a great antidote for the nasty night. Good Cuban... More

One of the selections recommended by Lisa, our server, was empenadas. We have eaten empenadas in many Hispanic restaurants and these empeneadas are very good. To enhance the flavor the empenadas are served with a green sauce that was outstanding. The sauce was creamy and cool. The empenadas were filled with beef and chicken. Among the entrees we selected were... More
