Brasserie MonmartreMy family was there for a combined birthday and mothers day celebration. The food was wonderful, especially the lamb, and our waitstaff was attentive without being overwhelming. It can get a bit loud at times, but not overwhelmingly so. I don't feel it is a problem as long as you are aware of it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and extra touchesGreat service and extra touches with the complementary puree of golden bell pepper soup samples (with "eggplant caviar"--not real caviar but a vegan alternative) and delicious tiny chocolate cupcakes for Mothers' Day. Prime rib was delicious and cooked just right. Nice portions, fair price.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Mothers DayBrunch was great with all the food to choose from and service was very good. My wife loved her mothers day brunch. We will definitely come back for brunch and would like to try lunch and dinner in the near future. This was a relaxed feeling and enjoyed it with our friends which felt the same as we did.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOh the Truffle Fries!This place had a wonderful history and ambience.

Good wine list, too.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful eveningWe had a wonderful evening and were very impressed by the staff. They had music playing at the front so asked if we'd prefer to sit in the back for a quieter dining experience. We could still enjoy the energy and festiveness of the place, even from the back of the restaurant. I felt that we got good value and the food was delicious.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant anytime,I love this restaurant anytime, but the Easter Brunch has become a tradition.

Brunch was wonderful and looking forward to experiencing the night life and jazz!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was, and alwaysThe service was, and always is, excellent.

The staff was super nice to me (I'm a charming 2-year old little girl), I loved my pasta with real parmesan cheese (simply delicious). I had a great time exploring every corner of the restaurant, I think we all had a fantastic evening... and the chocolate cake is simply superbe, although Dad only gave me a little bit as when the desert arrived, it was almost time for me to go to bed!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery step of the eveningEvery step of the evening at Brasserie Montmartre was perfect, starting with the warm welcome, the nicely reserved table and the friendly waitperson. Every need was accommodated and the food choices allowed the vegetarians to enjoy something special too. The prix fixe menu may be too much for older people but for anyone else it is a great value. The carrot ginger soup was dreamy and the Idaho trout cooked to perfection. Our only regret was that we had to rush away to the Symphony.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Service, Always!We frequent the Brasserie Montmartre for dinner often...the food and service is consistently good and we love the upbeat, but not distracting, ambiance! Have additionally caught happy hour, which has a great menu.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great time and theAlways a great time and the service is perfect as usual!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAs long as Larry Calame isAs long as Larry Calame is on piano, I'll be there every Tuesday.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place for a special nightI'm not big on French food but this was quite nice. The staff was super accommodating,I had reservations for 5 and we had to change it several times and had people show up late. They didn't even blink an eye, they made us feel very welcome.

She had the soup and a salad. I had the duck salad. We started off with the truffle fries. She had a baileys and coffee - which she mentioned was very good -- better than she was expecting. I had their $5 beer sampler of 3 of my picks. Mr Reese at the bar helped pick 3 darks. The one from Burnside was good so had a pint. In all it was a quiet evening with good food.1/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
