Casual
Fort Greene's “New American Restaurant” with a cozy European urban rustic bistro vibe and a globally culinary sensibility. The locally-inspired American food is distinguished by international accents - particularly Mediterranean and
Asian - and defined by crisp, clean flavors, seasoned with a touch of whimsy.
The menu is designed to encourage sharing, as befits the relaxed atmosphere of what is a Brooklyn attitude- free zone. The Quarter is a place to savor fine wines and memorable craft beers, while relishing accessibly-priced food that
reflect Executive Chef Jason Avery’s flair for unexpected ingredient combinations that seduce the plate, while capturing the imagination.

OK spot - we stopped in before a show at BAM. But the food was just average, nothing special.

When going to an event at B.A.M. or the Barclay Center, you can't beat The Quarter. Super nice staff working the tables, and behind the bar. Delicious menu items. Fun place to hang out, and have a drink. My favorite place in that neighborhood.

Went for dinner on a Thursday night. Seated quickly, service was good, and the food presentation and taste was awesome! Sat in the garden, but I want to come back and be part of the bar experience. Looking forward to revisiting.

Made a reservation was able to change it for a later time at the last minute. Very accommodating! Great ambiance, service and food! Intimate setting. Only a few blocks from the main stage at Barclay Center and BAM. Strongly recommended going before an event but make a reservation!

What a lovely spot. This was my first time, so I had no idea what to expect, but the food, ambience and service were all top notch! I had no idea there was a seating area on the patio out back, which was lovely. I really hope to return soon!

This is our second time visiting The Quarter Restaurant. We are getting more satisfied with our different choice of food and drinks.Garden area could be in a better looking with more lights. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and helpful to choose the starters and entree. Will be back soon

This is my mother's favorite restaurant so we eat here regularly. We love the menu--it's very eclectic--; the cocktails are fun and tasty, the portions are perfect--right in the middle of too big and too small; and it's beautifully decorated with excellent service.

Very friendly and very tasty. General Tso Chicken bun was really good as was the spicy chicken sandwich. Kid had the burger and gave it two thumbs up. Didn't have the Oysters but they looked great.

The place is beautiful. Both inside and outside are gorgeous.
However, the food itself is nothing beyond average.

This is a good spot for a drink (since, again, it's a really gorgeous place), but I wouldn't go back for dinner.

My partners and I had a great dining experience in this place after a show in the BAM. I requested to be seated in patio which was gorgeously designed with ivies all over and retractable roof .Cocktails made with fresh juices and they were outstanding. The service was very attentive and he was very helpful to choose the right wine for the entree we picked from the menu. We would love to go back again.

We come here for the pesto mussels. Unfortunately the recipe was changed and it left us very disappointed. Please, bring back the pesto mussels - they were perfection!

The Quarter has the potential to be a great neighborhood go-to restaurant. The atmosphere and location are just right. There seems to be an active bar scene (we were there for pre-theater dinner).
The actuality was that service was mediocre, slow, not well informed or terribly helpful.
Worse was the food preparation - business wasn't heavy but our orders took 'forever' to arrive and when it did, we were disappointed. It seems like the meals were prepared long before delivery and kept near a heat lamp. Food was dry, warm and uninspired.
Maybe someone will teach the staff that quality and customer service are primary.

We selected The Quarter since it was highly recommended and near the BAM where we were seeing a show. We found the food remarkably average and portions not particularly generous. For appetizers we had calamari which was decent enough but not very crispy. The burrata cheese with zucchini and peas was disappointing; we've had better burrata from Trader Joe's Fish and chips were more like fish and a large potato wedges. The pesto chicken was rather bland and I don't know why the broccoli with it was served raw (leftovers were good in a salad the next day, however). The mussels were passable, though the broth was nearly tasteless. I have had much better at places like Cafe Luluc in Cobble Hill. The best part of the meal were the fries that came with the mussels. Service was decent enough but we won't go back.

The Quarter is one of the worst restaurants I've visited in NY. We had a reservation at 8 but our table wasn't ready at that time. We had to wait for like 15 minutes. Once there, it took ages for someone to take our order.

The food was really bad, we asked for the "Pan Roasted Chicken Caramelized Winter Vegetables, White Wine, Thyme, Garlic" and it was just fried chicken with tasteless veggies. We also shared the burrata which was almost uneatable.

The drinks came after our dishes. We ordered wine and beer. They were both terrible and really expensive for what they tested like.

So on top of that, we were brought the check really fast and then were asked to move to the bar because they had another reservation. We just left. This is probably the worst restaurant in Brooklyn. We Will never go back.
