Rec for Quiet Bklyn Restaurant

Dining with older folks who can't hear too well - any recs for a more formal (and by that I mean not elbow to elbow) restaurant that is quiet *and* has good food? Open to all types of cuisine.

Also looking for good overall atmosphere ... outdoor seating would be nice.

      Thanks, Miss Needle.

      I think I need to modify my request. Perhaps not "New American". Any opinion on Convivium Osteria?

        How about Bacchus? They do a good job with French Bistro standards and the garden is great on a summer evening.

          Convivum Osteria is very good. Good noise level and spacing fror Brooklyn. - and you could probably request a quiet corner. Frankie's 457 would also be a good choice if you obtain a table in the garden.

            We ended up cooking in (quietest of all) but will save these recs for next time. Thanks all!
