Diner Reviews
  • "Trendy but non pretentious space, excellent service and food. Upscale food options for lunch and was perfect for a business/friend lunch. Previously been there for cocktails/appys which was also very enjoyable."

  • "Took my out of town guest to Brassai. I had been there several times before and was never disappointed, and this last visit was no exception. Food was wonderful, service attentive but unobtrusive. I had made a reservation, but the restaurant was quiet and there was plenty of space. In previous visits it was much busier, perhaps it's that way in the evening or weekend brunch."

  • "Sometimes you just have to go all out. We had the cheeseburger, which was nice and juicy and cooked to a perfect medium. The chicken and waffles which again was super juicy yet crunchy on the outside. The french toast had a rice crispy crust with nutella and pecans. Nice one. Will be back for sure!"

  • "Food is not outstanding. I don't mind fusion dishes, however I find the menu doesn't sound very appetizing. Presentation is beautiful, the flavour of the food just doesn't cut it. Too many weird mixes that are not balanced very well. Ambiance is nice. Cramped space when full (waiters bumping into chairs) Convenient if you want to dance after dinner."

  • "I made dinner reservations for 9pm. When I arrived at 9:03 the front desk told me it would be 15 mins for my table to be ready. After 30 mins I had to follow up on the status of my table. It was just after 10pm that I got my table. Another 40 mins before our dinner came. There was acknowledgment or apologize. Menu should also have more appetizer choices. Very noisy in the restaurant."

  • "Having been here before I so looked forward to a special evening celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday, but both of us felt unwelcome and frankly offended by our server's attitude. Luckily he realized that we were unimpressed (or we were ordering a nice meal and bottle of wine) and defrosted a bit, but damage was done. If I ever do recommend Brassaii it will only be to friends who "fit the profile", which apparently we did not. Sad to say that was my last visit there."

  • "I went here for a first date on a Saturday night. We were crammed into a tight table and surrounded by other couples in small tables in rows. No privacy! Good for groups though and the food was good."

  • "It was my first time at this place and I went to valentines day dinner. I must say their management was quiet ready to handle the vday business .. It took us half an hour to get out reserved table but nevertheless the food was really good and the waiter was extremely entertaining. Good place to go as couples"

  • "We went for the last day of Winterlicious and had a fantastic time! The food was outstanding and so was the service. I have to make special mention of our server who graciously gave me a second helping of pasta when it was obvious that my portion looked like an appetizer next to my friend's giant lamb shank. All 3 courses were delicious. Thank you for making my experience memorable! We will definitely be back when the weather warms up to hang out on the patio."

  • "Only good things to say. Our server was great and the food was definitely worth the price. We ordered the soup, entree and side each but would have been stuffed with an entree and sharing a side."

  • "My boyfriend and I had been to Brassaii once before and loved the food, atmosphere and service. So much so that we had dined there for Valentines day this year. Brassaii has a variety of fine food choices that will appeal to anyone. Everything about Brassaii is great, especially their price point. Their Valentines day 4-course menu was a great way for me to try out the different selection of foods and was the right amount of food to keep me feeling full. I am a little foodie trying out the different restaurants in the city and I would most definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone."

  • "Had dinner for four at Brassaii. It came positively recommended by a few friends. Great service from start to end, good wine list. Two of us ordered off the menu and two stuck to the Winerlicious menu. Lobster appetizer was wonderful and the cheese plate at the end is a must."

  • "While the food was good enough, the cocktails were amazing. It took a while to come out but it was worth it. I find that I never expect great food when I go out so when I do go out, it's more for the ambiance. It's a nice place to go with friends or take a date. It was an extremely cold day and I did like the way they draped the doorway from the outside so that wind does not get in when the door is opened. The service was great, with a server even walking me to the washroom instead of pointing in the direction. It's small things like that that make the evening very enjoyable. When I go to an expensive restaurant, this is what should be expected. Otherwise, why don't I spend 1/10 of the money and go to Burger Priest for good food?"

  • "We were there for the Winterlicious experience and were very disappointed with the quality of the main dish, especially for a restuarant of this caliber. I had the filet of sole which was tasteless and hard due to the breaded exterior. The mussel was overly chewey which is a sign that it was overcooked. My app (crab toast) and my dessert (pastry) were both delicious. My husband had the pasta dish, the pasta was hard and lacked taste. He was unimpressed with his app as there were too many roasted walnuts which took away the flavour as the balance was lost with the savory proscuitto. For his dessert, the chocolate cake did not mix well with the pineapple. The service was excellent, that is why we tipped 18% in spite of the food."

  • "Been to Brasaii many times now but last night was the best yet. The food was great, the presentation beautiful but what made this the best dining experience was our server who was engaging and so much fun we wanted to hang out with him. We'll be back."

  • "Food was excellent. When we arrived we needed to change tables because the sound coming from the bar was so loud we couldn't think. They accomodated our request right away and the rest of the evening from the food, to the service and wine was absolutely memorable."

  • "Parking in the area is pricy. Nice greeting at the door. We were let down by the current menu. It seems they choose not to update the menu on their website. Most disappointing. However, the current menu was still great. If you prefer a more quiet atmosphere then book an early dinner. It picks up quickly on the weekends and gets a tad on the loud side. Overall, upper scale restaurant. Would go back again."

  • "Recent visit was a big mistake to celebrate our friend's birthday. Was hoping to share with them how great of a place it would be. Server was no where to be found for most of the time. I don't think he understands english, hard for us to communicate and order. Food, was biggest disappointment. It was not busy but food took 45 minutes to arrive. Food choices were limited. we ordered steak- overcooked, dry, salty. When they came our steaks got switched. I was served with a medium rare steak, which was supposingly for my friend. The birthday person ordered lamb rack- super dry, tasteless. Tried to explain to server but again he didnt understand what we were saying. Half way into our meals we really just wanted to leave."

  • "Good brunch selection and great for large groups as the dining room is massive."
