Quaint French bistro in Williamsburg. Lovely, efficient and unobtrusive service. Lamb ragôut was excellent! The portion was a tad bit on the small side but I'd definitely order it again. My companion devoured the duck confit. The creme brûlée was the perfect dessert. Tables are pretty close together and it can get pretty noisy. Hard to converse with people across... More

I'd read good things but this French bistro but it really surpassed my expectations. My squash and mushroom risotto was one of the best risottos I've ever had and my guest's steak was equally great. The front room was crowded and noisy but there's a big room in the back that was almost empty so if you like it quiet... More

Le Barricou is great, and in what is currently an up and coming neighborhood. Everything I've ever had here was excellent. Unfortunately, once the food came out cold. Not warm, not lukewarm, but cold. Disaster. However, it's typically excellent and it's hard to find anything on the menu that one wouldn't like.

I can't stop thinking about the best brunch experience I've ever had here in NY! Went all the way to Brooklyn. My sister and I waited for 20 mins for a table. Wait was so worth it! Ordered this croissant with spinach feta and steak and eggs. I was not disappointed with the servings plus the taste! Also got the... More

Went there for breakfast/brunch (from Manhattan - quite a hike!). Atmosphere is a bit old world & quite pleasant. Selection for breakfast was quite good & very good quality. Coffee was also very good. The Apple Frittata was quite good, the Duck Confit Hash is quite filling & rich, the Croque Madame was quite wholesome & very tasty. All in... More

My daughter lives in Brooklyn. I never knew Brooklyn before she moved there and I have discovered some wonderful places. Barricou is one of these where we ate one night. The food is french bistro, the wine list limited but well chosen and the service excellent. It is also roomy and relaxed. I can imagine the same place in Manhattan... More

We were having a wander around Brooklyn on a rainy Saturday morning and just happened to stumble across this little place, and we were so glad we did. We spent a great couple of hours enjoying the atmosphere, a few mimosas and lovely food. Would definitely recommend it.

Not exactly the warmest of welcomes when we arrived Sunday morning to meet friends for breakfast. Maybe they were hungover or just inherently surly -- not a good start. The place filled quickly and once we saw the menu, we had a hunch that this would be a breakfast to remember. I had the omelet and my wife had the... More

Heard there could be long waits so got here ~10 min before opening an were the third group (3) seated. Clearly within ~45 min, the place was completely full and folks were waiting outside for tables 1 hr in. The restaurant is a French concept restaurant with a few twists. We ordered the salmon eggs benedict, the duck confit hash... More
