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.

It was our second time there. Same as last time, fabulous!! Nice compact menu. Very interesting soup of the day... Tomato curry. Bold flavors. Roasted cauliflower salad with citrus and arugula. Wonderful. Short ribs... melt in your mouth with the best potato gratin ever!! Braised lamb shank... wow! Mussels in coconut broth... perfect. Great deserts... mixed berry crumble and chocolate cake with salted caramel ice cream. Interesting cocktails and house made non alcoholic drinks. Well curated wine list. We live in Chicago, or we'd be there at least once a month!!

I came here and immediately admired the interior design of the restaurant. The bar and ambience is chic and very romantic. They have a great open kitchen. The space was flooded with natural light.
Great place for brunch and drinks.
The service was very friendly and accommodating.
