Loosie's Kitchen is a contemporary take on diverse American home cooking traditions, blessed with a lil’ bit of Brooklyn swagger. Borrowing from his roots as a NYC-raised Asian American, Chef Henry interprets new American home cooking through a multi-culturural lens. Constantly playing and infusing seasonal produce into comforting classics, the kitchen & cafe is a home away from home for our regulars and locals.

Third time we have eaten here for brunch and the food is always good. We have had a few different options but the spicy chicken sandwich is my favorite. The staff are always friendly and helpful. They also have highchairs for babies. They didn't have a Bloody Mary on the menu for the longest time but now they do so it's the perfect brunch spot!

Not many options for us vegans/vegetarians but my friends said the non-vegetarians dishes were great. Menu is quite small I do wish there were more options but the items they had tasted great! Loved the atmosphere and artwork all around the place and the entrance was beautiful!

Perfect spot for brunch! Right next to the Williamsburg Bridge and less than a 5 minute walk to Domino Park/the waterfront. The sun room was a gorgeous place to meet and enjoy a meal.

The food was ok - had eggs that were supposed to be soft scrambled but definitely were regularly scrambled, if not over cooked. Plus side was a really good drink and the atmosphere.

My husband and my favorite place to go for brunch! A wonderful spot with an absolutely lovely atmosphere. Always busy but we always can manage to get a table. Food is delicious -- a small menu that changes often so we can always switch up our options. We love Loosie's!

What a fun place! There were 7 of us and we were seated in the very sunny atrium area - it's happy and lively. Our waitress was outstanding-very friendly, very helpful and dealt with all our questions about the menu. The food was delicious-don't think we left a crumb!

Ambiance was great, very cute place but the food was terrible and very underwhelming. Ordered a burger and it was just a charred patty with an American singles cheese slice on top. Boyfriend had the fried chicken and wasn’t impressed that either.

cannot recommend this spot enough!! found it on the instagram of one of my favorite bloggers and the pics looked so tempting i had to go!! it was SUCH a perk that reservations were available as well, as a lot of brooklyn brunch spots don’t do them. the ambiance and decor of this place couldn’t be cuter too. i genuinely had the best french toast of my life, and i wanted to be best friends with our waitress and hostess bc they were so sweet and nice. the prices were exactly what i expected for brunch in ny and totally worth it to me. plus free coffee and tea refills! was only in bklyn for the weekend but will definitely be heading back to this spot next time :~)

My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The best is that you can take your time, you feel welcomed (which is unsual for NY) and the food is delicate ! (The only tiny thing that the entrees were not super warm otherwise 5 stars ) !

Some of the food was pretty good, but for the most part it was underwhelming. Probably better off a cocktail and snack when the weather is nice and you can take advantage of their outdoor space.

Loosie’s is a very cute place. I was very excited to come here after following it on social media. The food was good and decently priced. The drinks were delicious. A bit on the expensive side, but that’s Brooklyn. My biggest disappointment was the seating. I made a reservation over a month in advance. Now, I understand that this isn’t a large venue, but our group was seated next to the door in a relatively dark space. I would have wished they would put the reservations in the bright colorful space. All-in-all, I would go back and would recommend. Maybe just leave a not on the reservation next time.

Not much more to say. Loosies is fantastic, its been on my radar for years. Have been a few times and it never disappoints, nor has the menu been the same. Constantly updating without losing its charm.
