I wish people would stop reviewing this place and calling it "Hipster", I am not sure what they mean by that. Andrew Tarlow has been setting up restaurants in Williamsburg for over 20 years, so I would not call his establishments hipster. Anyway, Marlow and Sons is excellent, it really is wonderful food in a wonderful setting. The last time... More

This place seems to do everything - breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, eat in or take out, sit in or sit out (according to weather), coffee and a pastry, or just the bar in the evening. It attracts a very hip crowd of locals, and you will probably have to wait for a table - try to time your arrival and... More

For amazing food - usually southern style this is the place. You'll be dining elbow to elbow with some of the leading rock stars and Hollywood stars who happen to be in New York. But the attention is mostly on the food which is very serious and very good.

This is a little gem of a restaurant. It's owned and staffed by people who care about their products; great service and very, very good food. Be warned you may only have a selection of 5 appetizers and 3 entrees. But all are done excellently. Reservations are a good idea as the place is usually crammed full of young locals.... More

Good reviews have guided us here and we were rewarded with a very pleasant atmosphere, broad selection of beers, friendly staff and tasty food (a bit on the spice side). Nevertheless there was a disappointing but. When the chocolate caramel desert kicked our pallets the need for an espresso emerged in great force. Unfortunately and very disappointing this was not...

OMG what a way to start a day. With a slightly sore head from the night before, we headed to M&S and weren't disappointed: such breakfast delights soon put our worries to one side and we dove into to culinary delights - and it was breakfast. I could have ensconced myself in the corner and stayed all day.....

A friend and I were staying nearby so we decided to try Marlow & Sons for breakfast. Food was DELISH...especially the breakfast biscuit! Coffee was terrific as well. On a nice day, there a several tables outside to enjoy the weather. Highly recommend!

Went for lunch. It's counter service with food brought to table. Liver pate, Potato tortilla (not sure why it's called that, it's like a cake) and salami's were delicious. Oysters were tasty but small.

I'd heard a lot about Marlow & Sons from friends. And having tried Diner a few months back we decided to grab a seat outside for a light dinner. Started with some oysters that were solid, especially the wellfleets. The crispy rice was awesome. The mixed lettuce salad was good and a large portion. The blue fish was very interesting.... More

This is my local coffee shop, and there is very little wrong with it. Although being a little over priced, I still find myself going back day after day. They have tables outside that are always filled with locals and on the weekends, its very popular for people to travel to come here for brunch. The biscuit and egg sandwich... More
