Just about every 'nice' restaurant in the metropolitan area costs about the same. Usually too much money for the quality of food and service. This restaurant was worth EVERY penny. Seriously, haven't had such a great meal in a long time. I enjoyed every single item that we ordered. No food was wasted.

This is the classic situation of conflict between honestly giving the restaurant the highest praise it is truly worthy of, verses giving a reserved statement of flattery so as not to attract too much attention that ones’ new favorite “neighborhood place” becomes impossible for me the neighbor to get into.
Small menu, every item, done perfectly. Veteran mixologists. I had my heart set on an espresso martini for dessert, I was too full, but the waiter got the bartender to kindly make me a half-size!

From the bartenders, to the chefs, servers and hostesses, everyone there is great. They staff there are patience, informed, and truly understand the SERVICE aspect of the service industry.

P.S. As a black person, I feel more than welcome there and I’ve been bringing black people there consistently.

My boyfriend and I came to Otis on a Saturday night for dinner/drinks and had GREAT time. The restaurant is very cute, has an open layout, and just a very chill atmosphere that was great for a date. The food was DELICIOUS, as were the drinks. We had the green beans, pork shoulder, and lamb chops. All the dishes are meant to be shared. The service was also great - our server was funny, attentive and had good recommendations. Overall, would definitely recommend this place both for a date or a larger group. It's my favorite new find and I'll definitely be going back.

Terrific meal. We thoroughly enjoyed every single item we ate, which doesn't happen to us very often. Service was enthusiastic. Our only quibble was that we'd like more items on the menu (perhaps chicken dishes) so we could have more variety on return visits.

We went for dinner last week and it was so amazing that we had to go back for brunch the following week. The staff was just as amazing and welcoming as the dinner staff. Very upbeat with huge smiles.
Brunch was amazing.We rolled out of the restaurant after we had their cinnamon bun for dessert.

Otis is, without a doubt, the best new restaurant I’ve tried in the past year and arguably one of the Top 4 or 5 restaurants in which I’ve ever eaten. Everything was superlative. The burrata (with pesto, tomato jam, and sweet potato), beet salad (with whipped ricotta, candied hazlenuts), lamb chops, duck leg, homemade foccacia were each one of the best examples of those dishes that I’ve ever tried in the U.S. or Europe. We’re heading back this weekend for a second visit. Otis marries the quality and refinement of a Michelin-starred restaurant with generous quantities ideal for sharing, a laid-back, family vibe, beyond fair pricing, an awesome industrial chic decor, and just really great juju. So glad that we found Scott, Paul, and this entire talented and caring team.

I can't believe Otis has been open over a year and we only found it now! A jewel of a restaurant , just a few subway stops away in Bushwick... The energy, ambiance and decor are spot-on, the food is to die for, but the best thing of all is the fantastic service: solicitous, spontaneous, friendly, professional, enthusiastic. Don't miss the house breads and spreads but keep some space for the rest of the delicious meal. A wonderful place for a fun yet relaxed dinner....enough noise to create excitement, but not enough to disturb your conversation. Enough space between tables to enjoy privacy, but enough to make New Yorkers feel uncomfortably lost... Lots of interesting patrons, but no "latest fad" mobs.... just perfect!

We came here for our first wedding anniversary. We ordered the homemade bread, tomato bisque, pork shoulder pasta, lamb shank and branzino fish. The food was so amazing we devoured it all just the two of us. All the dishes were so packed with flavor it was just an explosion of flavor in every bite.

I also recommend the cocktails as they are also tasty and help cut the heaviness of the dishes.

Otis was a delight. Just had a simple brunch but each dish was original, visually beautiful, but most importantly, absolutely delicious! Service was on point too. Overall a lovely experience
