I do not think I can think of a more disappointing restaurant experience. One server for the whole entire place. The food, is you can even call that was horrible. Not a single edible bite out of anything we ordered. On top of all of...this its extremely pricey. Take your money and time and go somewhere else.More

I have wanted to try out this restaurant and seeing so many posts on instagram and rave reviews. We went early on a Sunday night - as soon as it opened - and were seated right away but service is slow. They need more light...in the restaurant you can't read the menu unless you use the flashlight on your phone. As the place started filling up the noise got louder as its a huge space - makes conversations difficult. The food was very good but its an expensive night - worth the splurge but definitely not a quick meal.More

My wife and I had dinner at Bison and Bourbon on Sunday at 6pm on a holiday weekend. It was not at all busy (3 or 4 tables occupied when we started). The steak menu is not that expansive but the hangar steak was missing...from the menu. Both my appetizer and main came out 10-15 minutes before my wife's. Strangely my wife's flat bread and burger I assume would take less time than my sweetbreads and delmonico steak. We also had to ask our server for salt a number of times. The server insist we order fries. When we discovered my wife's burger came with fries we asked if we could swap them out with vegetables which was replied with a resounding no. At dessert we were notified that the coffee machine was broken. We also couldn't help but notice that the table next to us must have reminded their server six times throughout their meal for their wings order. A service charge of 18% is included in the bill which may explain the poor service.More

We ate there on a Monday night. Nice atmosphere and wonderful attentive service. Our group had the following delicious food for our meal: Bourbon Pulled Beef, garnished with red onion, micro cilantro, lime salt, bourbon bbq glaze; Hanger Steak Gnocchi; smoked pastrami with eggplant; salmon...and smoked Delmonico steak. Everything was great, But, bring your wallet. The restaurant is not inexpensive.More

We visited Bison & Bourbon to celebrate my birthday and I enjoyed it. The place is gorgeous if you like a restored warehouse aesthetic and the service is terrific. Food and cocktails were good and prices were high. I really enjoyed non-traditional kosher menu items...such as chicken and waffles and the charcuterie board.More

My wife and I went to Bison and Bourbon to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and sat at the bar for a few minutes while the prepared out table. Samantha was our waitress and she was fabulous. Food was excellent...and prepared to our request. Cowboy steak is amazing. Apple fritters empanadas was so yummy. Service great, food excellent, atmosphere wonderful. Will definitely be back to Brooklyn from Queens. Well worth the trip.More

I bought a gift card for my kids at this restaurant (for their anniversary) on Thursday, which the restaurant was meant to e-mail them that they have it to pick up. My credit card was charged on Thursday, but as of now Sunday evening, no...e-mail has been sent. I was told they don't use electronics on Saturday, but that's only 25 hours. My kids are going out for dinner at another restaurant because they don't know their mum has bought them this gift. I am not sure about the food, but customer service is not very good.More

Pretty Much the Perfect Dinner! atmosphere is trendy and fun bar is great cocktails were chic and delicious service was constant, with out being invasive or overbearing food was spot on, my wife loved her bacon topped burger which was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully,...however, my coffee crusted veal chop was simply perfect!! definitely one of the best pieces of meat i have eaten anywhere, anytime! who had room for dessert? but we made room for the great homemade dessert ,we had caramel apple empandas and enjoyed every bite we like the homemade sauces and whipped cream off the plate we asked to meet the chef, he was polite, modest and great to talk to! on the way out we met the Gm Jeff and he as well was great. we will be back!! thank you for a very memorable dinner!More
