Diner Reviews
  • "Brasserie's food is delicious. The ambiance is little lacking, I was disappointed to find that having made a reservation for two, we were seated at a table right next to the kitchen. Our server was okay, but not particularly knowledgeable or helpful. Res said it was a bday dinner, but that was not acknowledged. I love a good amuse bouche so we tried the chees puffs - yummy little pillows but not the best in the world. The salad with bacon lardons was literally to die for. The braised beef and chicken were equally fantastic - melt in your mouth, humming while you eat good. The floating island was unique and yummy with a sweet and salty touch. I also had a coffee with dessert which was super good - a telling sign of overall quality."

  • "It's one of our favorites, but on Bastille night it was very disappointing. The food was served warm. The onion soup is excellent; if it were served hot, it would have been outstanding. My burger was ordered medium rare, served medium well; the burger and fries were both WARM -- not hot. My wife's trout was good, though warm, not hot. We'll wait a while before trying Brasserie again."

  • "Our group of four visited there for dinner before the Muny. Everyone's food was delicious. I ordered trout which came to the table only half cooked. I asked for it to be more well done. The waiter graciously returned my plate to the kitchen. It took a little bit for them to finished cooking it. There was no charge for my meal."

  • "Dining experience was good--in terms of both service and food. I just wish they would shake their menu up a bit, as it never seems to change, even seasonally."

  • "The Brasserie was our choice to celebrate Father's Day. Attractive setting just south of Forest Park, with a large outdoor seating area. Restaurant was about 50% occupied when we were there. Our waiter was attentive with a pleasant demeanor. Our drinks and salads came quickly and were excellent. Our main courses, while completely meeting our expectations, took a very long time to arrive. The ambiance was eclectic, but nothing like you would find in Paris. Overall, our party felt it was a good experience."

  • "I don't often times rate 5 stars. 5 stars to me, means that there is no room for improvement. And Brasserie is just that. If you're thinking about a place to go, and reading this review, go ahead and make your reservation. You won't be disappointed. I promise :) The food is unreal. So, so good. The location, decor and ambiance are perfect. The service was very good - with the lone exception of our waiter disappeared for a while after he brought us our desert menu. However, I did see a big top walk in and he may have had to deal with that. It was a perfect meal, at a perfect place. I can't wait to go back."

  • "Unfortunately our experience did not live up to past dining experiences here. Our server Robert was not very attentive. He had to be requested back to our table twice. Once to ask for an ordered side dish and honestly multiple times for initial bread service. He spent too much time socializing with one table in particular. My advertised cocktail was not made according to the menu. Was suppose to have simple syrup but granulated sugar was settled at the bottom of the glass. For $8 a cocktail it should have been much better. Hopefully this was just an off nite and is not representative of things to come. "

  • "We were fortunate enough to have great weather in the evening, so we dined outside on the patio. Reminded us of Paris! Great food - the trout and the roasted chicken were excellent and the onion soup was a meal in itself. Service was excellent as usual."

  • "Had wonderful date night at Brasserie. The cheese puffs were warm and delicious. The mixed lettuce salad was a bit plain, but the goat cheese and hazelnut accents were excellent. The steak was perfectly cooked, tender, delicious. The gnocchi was interesting, though a bit bland. The floating island dessert was a unique dish, well executed. I had not had one before, and was very pleasantly rewarded for my adventure. Overall a very nice, romantic spot in the CWE. A very impressive recreation of the authentic French dining experience, with better service."

  • "I love Brasserie by Niche because it is reliably excellent. The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed; calm, and works on so many levels. We gave a Brasserie gift card to someone at Christmas and she and her date had a delightful dinner experience, then went back the next morning for a fabulous brunch. I love the gougeres, vegetarian watercress soup, Spring veggies/ freshly picked garden peas, radishes and, of course tender asparagus. My family members and I were able to have pleasant conversation and top notch, seriously perfect service…from Tony, who graciously made all my "high maintenance" dietary requests seem like "no problem". You can confidently entertain clients and out of town guests at Brasserie. "

  • "We come to the restaurant pretty regularly and our favorite dish are the mussels and pommes frites. this time the mussels were rather cold and were a much smaller portion than in the past. two of our guests who ordered the same thing did not get their pommes frites with their meal so we had to ask for them. also asked for another roll and that never came. so the food this time was mediocre and the service was the same."

  • "Love the bistro atmosphere. Dining here feels like you're in the middle of Paris. We've been here a number of times and the food is always excellent - a favorite is the mussels and frets."

  • "While hardly fussy, Brasserie has some of the best food in St. Louis. The menu is limited but each dish is a gem. The wait staff are solicitous while not irritating or fawning and the sound level is non-intrusive."

  • "The best part of the Brasserie is by far the food. Everything is absolutely delicious and I can't imagine someone not enjoying their meal. The service is also great, as is the atmosphere (very much in the vein of a French café like you'd see in the movies). Overall a great place and a relative bargain considering the quality of the food."

  • "We were excited to be back. It has been to long. And then seated in the penalty box. Cut off from the room. I could not savor the simplistic beauty of the room, as I couldn't see it. Our server was kind and attentive. The food was delightful. We will be back.....but never to be sat at that horrible table again."

  • "Quality creative food; appetizer through desert. Quality presentation and service throughout. Comfortable feel . Not cheap, but worth the price. My wife and I split a dish and each received an ample portion. All portions were generous. Three of us shared two deserts and there was more than enough. Highly recommend."

  • "This was our first visit to Brasserie by Niche and it certainly will not be our last. From the moment we entered the door Niche had a truly a great authentic French Bistro taste, look and feel with some wonderful American hospitality and outstanding service. All starters and entrees were standout , the French Onion soup, Escargot, and Steak Tartre were as good as any that we had sampled in Paris. A very thoughtful, reasonably priced wine list and a kind knowledgeable waiter rounded out an evening that was magnifique'."

  • "Have been to the restaurant twice now. I have to say I do not like the type of lettuce they choose for their salads, too bitter. I think adding some romaine would improve the salads greatly."

  • "This is a consistently good restaurant. The decor is warm and friendly; the staff are professional, polite, very helpful without being overbearing. The menu uses a lot of local Missouri/Illinois produce and meat. While there are the consistent favorites in the appetizers, mains and deserts there are also wonderful specials - which really are special. The onion soup is outstanding, the braised beef and roasted chicken are long-standing favorites. I could make a meal out of the cheese puff appetizers and the floating island is the best I have ever had!"

  • "The Brasserie was an excellent French dining experience. We always look for good muscles and fries and they had it! Delicious. The creme brulee was also fantastic."

  • "We love this place! The food, the service, the ambiance are all terrific. We went with the gnocchi, which I find often is prepared more like heavy dumplings rather than the airy pillows they should be; these were lovely. Though, I really don't think there is a need to sear them. The mussels with their delicious sauce and fabulous thin, crispy frites are always a good bet. I was hoping that the caramel pecan tart would be on offer for dessert, but sadly it was gone, replaced however by a luscious lime souffle tart. We used the valet car parking service for the first time & found the gentleman working that night (3/17) to be very professional and helpful. He is a fine representative for the restaurant and I hope management notices."

  • "Living in the Central West End, we sometimes take Brasserie for granted. We shouldn't. The service was great, and the expertly prepared steak frites and croque madame were exactly what we needed on a raw night. If I have one gripe, it's the downright ugliness of the bar area. It feels like a total afterthought -- a place to warehouse guests waiting for seats. But everything else was fabulous. Can't wait for outdoor dining weather!"
