Diner Reviews
  • "The food was sub par all around. We ordered a la carte and off the restaurant week menu and all of us were disappointed. Will not be returning."

  • "My friends and I dined at Brasserie a few days ago to participate in Restaurant Week. It was very close to work for two of us, and we really loved the menu. The decor is very nice, but not overstated. Elegant, but not pompous. The host was very accommodating and friendly, and our waitress was great. I had the french onion soup as the appetizer, the duck breast for my entree, and the chocolate beignets for dessert. Everything was delicious. Although my beignets were served to me cold, they were still very good. Portion sizes were also generous. In the past, when I have participated in Restaurant Week, we would sometimes still be hungry at the end of our meal, but not this time. Would love to visit again, and try sister locations."

  • "We had a server who was very professional and took care of a lobster bisque soup that my boyfriend didn't like at all. My only issue was that he served me a dessert that had a thin layer of cake on the bottom after I told him I had a gluten allergy. I ate nearly half of it until I realized what was hiding underneath. He graciously apologized and gave me something else. All of the food was amazing aside from the soup. The service was on point. The setting of the restaurant is romantic and chic. I would visit again."

  • "So disappointing! The escargot was served more like an overlooked stew... Not at all what I expected from the menu description! The boulliabaise was simply tasteless! My husband ordered the cassoulet and said it was really disappointing! All three of these are our favorites in French food.. We order them every opportunity including in France.... These did not measure up at all!!!"

  • "I went to Brasserie with my gf for Restaurant Week dinner and it was absolutely brilliant; the food was wonderful and beautifully presented, it was brought out in good time, without making us feel rushed, and everything was wonderful! I cannot recommend this place highly enough, especially for the Restaurant Week; they did run out of the duck, but I had the chicken instead and would order it again!"

  • "The Brasserie was a "go to" after a night of disco dancing in the late 70's early 80's. The ambiance and food was never disappointing and you never knew who you would see there. Fast forward to 2014 returning with my daughter for a birthday brunch, it was fabulous. Totally renovated and very trendy. Food, service and vibe still there."

  • "loved the brunch. Make sure you go after 12PM, they can only serve alcohol after 12 on Sundays. The service was great. The manager came over three times to check on us."

  • "Constantly had to waive down waiter for everything! Water, food order, bread, more water. Was not in a hurry but it took 3 hours to dine. It's possible it was because of restaurant week but it was joke at the table."

  • "I had the omelette entree and the salmon filling was dry. The salad was ordinary and the fries were less well done than I like."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We requested a booth table, but none were available. The manager informed us shortly after we sat down tht a booth would be available in 10 minutes, and offered to move us there. He did, and it made out evening memorable. Food was outstanding as well, with wide selection. Diners at our table had steak and duck, very well prepared."

  • "As much as I enjoy getting the chop chop salad, the bowl of mussels with French fries and ripping e baguette on the table, this may be my last time dining at Brasserie. The noise was too much. I could not hear my friends, our server or myself think and my ears were ringing after I walked out. As trendy or cool as it may be and always has been, I think there are better options for lunch midtown, which s a bummer."

  • "Too loud to speak across the table. Never going again if I care to hear what my dinner companion says."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "After my recent lunch at Brasserie, I realized that quite a few of my last lunch meetings have been there. The food is always excellent, the service is excellent - though not outstanding, but that's nitpicking. It can be quite noisy, but there is enough space between tables that the noise actually serves as a cover. The menu is always interesting (in a good way) and varied - rare tuna steak this time, beef bourguignon the last time and both were excellent - and good enough for foodies, a special occasion, or travelers looking for a Best-of-NY sort of place. You can't miss if you go to Brasserie."

  • "We had breakfast and it was great. A little lonely but maybe because it was 9.30. Frente toast and es benedictine just great."

  • "Brasserie stands the test of time. The food is good with a wide range of choices. Lunch can be especially noisy, dinner a little less so."

  • "Held a business lunch meeting at Brasserie. It was difficult to hear the person across the table at times, but I was already aware of this from previous experiences. The portion was small for the price. Food was pretty good, well-cooked, but salty and rich (so maybe better that the portion was small!)."

  • "The Brasserie is a nice French restaurant minus the white tablecloths and stuffy maitre d. Their restaurant week menu has a wonderful assortment of choices from their full menu and some special choices as well. Everything we ate was rich and delicious! I would definitely return to The Brasserie again."

  • "A pleasant Restaurant , good service , wonderful decor , good wine list but as the recreation of a grand French Brassiere style restaurant's from the 50's this is not. Lucky to find much French cuisine on the menu , hamburgers and lobster club sandwiches are rarely seen on menus in Paris. Nice but well short of the hype on the website."

  • "The minute I walked in I was so impressed, with the ultra modern look and feel for this restaurant. The food was excellent and the waiter was exceptionally attentive. Excellent service and enjoyed my time there."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "I had the lunch prix fixe. The Vol au Vent appetizer, mushrooms in Puff Pastry, was OK, nothing special. For my entree I had the Duck Leg confit - I really enjoyed the mustard. The dessert was scrumptious the chocolate mousse tort, with the crème fraîche and the chocolate hazelnut sorbet. This is a mediocre entry in the Patina group of restaurants."

  • "We selected Brasserie for a Sunday Brunch with friends. Everyone really enjoyed there food, especially the crepes. The brunch set menu is a great value. The restaurant has a modern feel. Service was very smooth. Everyone at our table agreed that we would eat there again."

  • "Have dined at the Brasserie off and on for many years....and always plan a meal there whenever I am in the city. The menu and wine list are always interesting - the food is always beautifully prepared - with great tastes and satisfaction. Great value for the money spent. A favorite!"

  • "We ordered the steamed lobster which is easy to overcook; however, it was perfect and a good size as well. Nikhil was an excellent server who checked on us often as well as the managers did. All of the food we had was excellent, but the lobster was delightful. The design of the restaurant was such as to minimize noise. The tables are not close together and the restaurant is well lighted. We did not sit at the bar, but it appeared to well patronized by regulars. There are booths and tables. If you want a booth, recommend you request it when you make your reservation as they are somewhat limited. The chairs at the tables are comfortable. Food prices are reasonable."

  • "This is THE perfect midtown place for breakfast, brunch or lunch! Service is top-notch, space is beautiful, food is fabulous, coffee is the best in the city, and my out of town friend and I had an opportunity to catch up in a wonderful, warm environment where we could actually hear each other. No one rushed us out. The calm and tranquility in the midst of midtown is a balm to one's NYC soul."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The atmosphere at Brasserie was not at all what we expected, given the name, it looks more like a retro airplane interior than a French bistro. The food was very good, the service was not. We brought our 4 kids, who are willing to try different foods, and they loved the mussels and frites. I would recommend this place to people who want good food in a very loud atmosphere."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "You can always get great food and service here, a stand out for years. However on the day we went for a late breakfast, we were completely ignored. The staff seemed perturbed that we had the audacity to arrive after the breakfast rush and actually order breakfast. It won't stop me from coming back; I just will never do it at that time."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We hadn't seen each other for several years so had lots to catch up on...the service was very gentle during the 3 hours we 2 Ladies chatted. No rushing, no hassling, just very pleasant "do you need anything more?" The Chicken Chop-Chop Salad is super delicious--very tasty but light dressing and not chopped to a "mush"."

  • "Have enjoyed this restaurant many times before noise level at lunch unbearable would have left but meeting a client. Food tasted institutional. Not as good as in past"

  • "Went here pre-theatre matinee on Saturday. Service was attentive; food was delicious; overall, a great spot for brunch. Had the beet salad as appetizer and eggs benedict ( with smoked salmon substitute instead of ham). Good spot to meet up with friends for quiet relaxing brunch."

  • "Brasserie never disappoints. Staff are considerate, knowledgeable, and able to handle food allergies. The Manager is always present and walking around to greet guests. Onion soups is always a treat. Brasserie has become a home for my friends and me in midtown."

  • "The decor and architecture of the restaurant was unusual in that it reminded me of the futuristic space pavilions at Disney. Quite energetic for lunch, but abit loud for a business discussion, although the front of the restaurant may have quiter acoustics. Overall the service and food was very good.."

  • "My party of 5 was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. All of my contact with the restaurant, prior to my arrival was handled professionally. The staff and waiters were all very friendly and helpful. The food was prepared and presented with expertise."

  • "Once our food arrived, we never saw the waiter or any support staff until we needed the bill. There wasn't even an offer to refill our coffee; even when the food came & our cups were empty. We were happy to pay for more bottles water, only we never had the chance to ask for more. We seemed to be inconviniencing our waiter."
