“what a great view of the city.”
“The chocolate was good, but the peaches and cream and strawberry were basically basic grocery store ice cream.”
“The vanilla and coffee flavors are excellent, the strawberry is pretty good, but the peach flavor is disappointingly bland (you can't taste the peach).”
“The ice cream is quite tasty.”
“The selection of flavors was excellent and, upon tasing the strawberry cone that I chose, I promptly gave up my membership in the "Hagen Daz is the best ice cream ever" club.”
“That combined with the best views in the entire city make this place a must visit.”
“true gem, with a great view and friendly service considering the line was out the door on the hottest day of the year!”
“Their ice cream is good, but not worth as much as they charge, especially since they only have a few uninspired flavors to choose from and their store is pretty inconveniently located.”
“waited in a line 150 people deep for this ice cream and what I got was a good quality ice cream cone but I didn't think it was worth the long wait.”
Mixed bag. The vanilla and coffee flavors are excellent, the strawberry is pretty good, but the peach flavor is disappointingly bland (you can't taste the peach).
what's the fuss. I don't get it. The ice cream's not bad, but there's nothing special about it. It couldn't kill them to offer a new flavor every now and then, and what kind of ice cream shop doesb't offer samples?!
User review by czapel. This place is alright. The chocolate was good, but the peaches and cream and strawberry were basically basic grocery store ice cream. They also don't give samples, which is absurd. what ice cream place doesn't give samples. Don't make a special trip to go here, I'm telling you. Go somewhere else.
worth the line!. Went for ice cream after walking across the brooklyn bridge and eating at grimaldi's...great way to end the day, eating ice cream overlooking the water! the butter pecan was amazing and the chocolate chocolate chunk was good too! worth the wait!
Huge Line, Average Ice Cream, Beautiful View. I had the peaches in cream, and my wife had the chocolate. It was fine - not bad, but nothing to write home about. Not worth waiting in the line. The only reason that I'd recommend stopping in is if you happen to have just emerged from Grimaldi's up the road and have a dessert fix, or to grab a snack as you take in the gorgeous view of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.
creamy and delicious. one of the best vanilla icecream i ever had. not too sweet, just right.
Ben & Who???. I usually don't eat ice cream because it's not worth the calories or fat grams, but this stuff is entirely worth it. I don't know what they put in it, but it's creamy, smooth, perfectly flavored, simple, clean, fresh--everything you want dessert to taste like. For just a little more than it's bastard low fat copy (Tasti DLite), you can get heaven in a cone. Great location, friendly staff, and worth the long lines even after waiting all night to have pizza at nearby Grimaldi's.
Highly Overrated. There are a handful of places in NYC that serve such amazing ice cream and gelato that you won't mind spending a ridiculous $3.00 for a single scoop. THIS ISN'T ONE OF THEM! Their ice cream is good, but not worth as much as they charge, especially since they only have a few uninspired flavors to choose from and their store is pretty inconveniently located. Worst of all, they won't give you any sample tastes! What arrogance!
totally overrated. I traveled all the way to Brooklyn from Staten Island. I was no impressed by the small scoops for the price I paid. This guy who served me was a bit on the rude side. I expected more from the hype it has recieved.
Yummy!!. We had lunch at Grimaldi's just up the street and had to try some of the ice cream. The homemade vanilla was awesome, even in 30 degree weather! Great views also.
