Cecconi's embodies all of the worst things that a "trendy" restaurant tries to be: loud, dimly lit, arrogant staff, lackluster service, and mundane food.

Since I actually live in DUMBO, Cecconi's is one of those restaurants that you feel like you must bring out-of-town visitors to...and that's all that it really is: a tourist trap. Having actually dined in Michelin Star restaurants, Cecconi's is basic at best. Honestly, I've had better service being dragged into a tourist trap restaurant in Positano...at least they were attentive and authentic there!

Over the course of two years, I've eaten at Cecconi's approximately 4 times (as it's so close to my apartment). Out of those 4 times, only 1 visit has resulted in adequate service.

Half of one star from this review goes to the lobster ravioli and the other half goes to the gracious gentleman who kept our water glasses refilled all night. The lack of the 4 other stars is a testament to the snootiness of one of the hostesses, the two very confused servers that we had, and finally the overall entitled trash ambiance from the establishment.

If you want to support a local restaurant in DUMBO with EXCELLENT service, beautiful views, and outstanding food, I suggest going to Atrium. At least there you won't have to ask for your "complimentary bread" 3 times.

Waiter forgot to give us the complimentary bread. We realized that when we saw everyone else with it. When we brought it to his attention he said that we had to request it. I told him how can someone request something that they don’t know about. Then he apologized and said he had forgotten. I ordered the salmon meal which is just salm with a small portion of lentils. For $30 there should have a substantial side. Not value for money. Came here last summer and it was much better.

Birthday outing for 2 at the bar. Great drinks, attentive service with a rotating staff and overall strong food offerings (chopped salad, regular pizza, minestrone soup, cauliflower and the meringueata (for 2) were all strong; the tagliatelle was the lone disappointment)

I had heard from a friend about this particular restaurant and I had been dying to try it for months. I figured Valentine's Day weekend would give me the perfect opportunity to do so with my fiancé. We had 7:30 reservations for dinner. We arrived early at 7 P.M. Since we were early I asked the hostess if we could sit at a window seat because the view is beautiful. The hostess told me that the wait for a window seat would be about 45 minutes. That was fine considering we would have to wait until 7:30 for our original reservations to be seated an extra 15 mins to wait for a view was fine by me. The wait was a little over 45 mins. We were brought to a table, that had no view AT ALL. I let it go. We were sat all the way in the back near the bar. The table was incredibly wobbly. A waiter came over in attempt to fix it, and could not fix it. They move us a few feet over to a different table. (Keep in mind, still not the table I requested .. and waited extra for. This table was also not stable at all. The same waiter comes over again to fix it. In the middle of him fixing it I was totally fed up at this point and asked if there were any where else for us to sit, and he insisted this table was fine. He fixed it and it was somewhat tolerable. The food portions were extremely small. I had a steak that was incredibly fatty and did not taste well at all. My fiancé got some kind of pasta that he finished in literally 10 bites with a side of meatballs. As we are paying, a couple sits down next to us and they are handed a pre-fixed Valentines Day menu with special pricing on it. My fiancé and I never even received that. Now I am even more furious. Moments later, the waiter comes over to the couple next to us and asks if they are ready to order and one of the gentlemen reply, "Yes, but we'd love to be moved to that section over there with the nice view, would we be able to move?" Without hesitation he replies yes, and moves them. HUGE disappointment. WILL NOT return!!!

View's great, if you get seated near a window. Service is just average, which was a bit disappointing after hearing about the reviews. Forgetful waiter, drinks came out wrong, etc.

while the restaurant has a lovely view and the food was above average, the seating was very uncomfortable, multiple tables including ours were shaky and wobbling. the waiters had to place something under the tables to balance them. Another weird fact was how low the chairs are for, I had to keep my legs in a curtesy to be somewhat comfortable. lastly the hostess and the waiter were having a heating discussion about the table arrangements right in front of us and was not professional at all. Overall, I was excited and had high expectations for this restaurant and was disappointed from the minute we sat and my table was wobbling all over the place.

Everyone was kind when my significant other and I had arrived. They asked if we wanted a view or not which is awesome, because usually other places never ask for a choice. They just sit you down, so that was very nice we got to see a beautiful view and a romantic dinner. Food was delicious for the value. Great experience!

Pleasantly greeted at the door by the Maître D’ by name who then proceeded to walk us to the bar while momentarily our table would be ready. Once seated, server promptly came to the table, asking about our comfort, if we needed another drink, and gave us ample time to review the menu. Once our order was put in, our food came out with perfect timing, it offered us time to enjoy our appetizers and our main course came shortly after. Food was amazing. The truffle pasta was absolutely exquisite. I’ve been to cecconi’s about 6 times, and it doesn’t seize to amaze me. Great experience overall! A+ all the way. A must check out spot in Brooklyn.

Great food and a wonderful ambience. Table service was a bit challenging with multiple missed drink orders, but this was likely due to the Friday crowds. When they ran my credit card it was only 1/5 of the total of the receipt, so we had to send the card back to have the first charge canceled and then re-run to reflect the full charge (which we brought to their attention). Also if you bring outside dessert for a celebration, there is a $5 per person plating fee.

Even though this was our first visit, and we were two women chatting our time away (you know, sometimes, when you go out with your girl friend, you don't get treated as nicely as when you're with your husband), they were so nice to us. Great table, great food, drink, as well. Perfect overall experience.

Despite our reservation our table was not available upon arrival. We were placed at the bar for so long, but ... forgotten. After a while we asked for our table ourselves. We then got a good table overlooking the water and Brooklyn Bridge, unfortunately next to a terribly noisy group of guests. Food was good quality, but not outstanding. We had better moments with Cecconis.
