    I used to always get seated in one of the booths--for breakfast and lunch. Since I've been making my reservations thru OpenTable, I get seated in Peoria every time I dine there. I feel like I have been consigned to the nameless horde of people choosing restaurants via the internet.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 5/19/2008
    Service was TERRIBLE. I've eaten here twice in the last week for lunch, and each time, the waiter got an order wrong (perhaps because it is too loud to hear), didn't check on us at all after our food came, didn't fill water/drink glasses. Both times we had to track down the waiter to get the check an hour after we'd finished eating. Astonishing.

    MeMo1204
    Dined on 5/18/2008
    Orange juice was warm and fresh-squeezed - my preference. Although they were very friendly and polite, I was surprised by the dress of two of the hostesses which was uncoordinated and far less than "elegant casual". Waiter was fairly attentive without being omnipresent. Noise level was far louder than I'd expected - lots of hard surfaces without compensating dampening factors, which may be why we had to repeat our orders several times. Food was good, but far overpriced. A light brunch for two should not cost $50. I would return, but only for a good Restaurant Week Prix Fixe price.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/15/2008
    Everything excellent as usual!! My only suggestion is that maybe the chef provide a variety of bread or a different type. I eat there a lot and the bread is just so hard, there is no graceful way to share this bread with people at the table. I love bread but it's a little difficult to eat this bread. Other than that my filet was out of this world!! Thanks!

    I took three people for a business breakfast (dressed very business like and appropriately) to Brasserie. Nice space. I normally tend to get treated very nicely wherever I go but first the hostess sat us at a table between the Kitchen and the bathroom literally with a ballet of busboys who nearly ran me over, despite having many nice available tables. I told her that it was unacceptable and wanted another table and eventually did get one. The service was slow. Food acceptable but nothing special and Pricey for what it was. Cappucino was not good. I would not go back or ever recommend the place. SKIP IT would be my recommendation

    A little different than our many other visits to Brasserie - we were in the back room (less appealing), very busy, quite noisy (almost claustrophobic), although the service was very good. And the fries were great, as usual. Looking forward to coming again, but no interest in the back room.

    Staff was very on the ball. Food was good. A little loud, but that did not bother me. Only real issue I had was that I would have preferred a choice of french fries with the lobster club sandwich I had - I was jealous that my dining partner had fries with his burger and that I only had some lettuce with very light dressing on it.

    It's always good to know that there is a neighborhood gem that you can turn to at anytime. The location is perfect for me and my commute and the people are quite friendly. They did not let me wait by the door when my friends did not get there the same time I did. I really appreciate that. They gave me my table and I waited sitting down. That was just right. I have recommended the BRASSERIE to friends and will continue to do so. However, just a suggestion: maybe more bruncg selections.

    Ambience ok but prefer that of Brasserie 8 1/2. Service quite good. The food was generally very good. We were surprised (& disappointed) by the "garlic mashed" potatoes, which were seasoned strongly with nutmeg but without noticeable garlic! We did NOT like to have the baguettes lying on a bare tabletop where people sneeze, etc. Both esthetically and hygienically displeasing. If you're going to serve an ordinary, cold baguette in the middle of the table, at least put a sheet of butcher's paper down! The little wine decanters were attractive.

    I was very disappointed that when I confirmed my reservation the day before, the hostess specifically said, "I see you requested a booth." And then when I got there, my guest was already seated at a regular table. Especially since it was a business lunch with 3 people, and the restaurant is very noisy, the booth was our preference. But it was innappropriate for me to move my guest after we arrived. The Brasserie food is always consistently great Brasserie food, and it didn't disappoint.

    Noise level completely dependent on table location. The din can get LOUD/annoying at peak lunchtime. I have had good experiences there consistently... at the bar on a weeknight or at breakfasts or lunches. Other than the price and the noise I have no complaints. I am sorry our office moved out of the neighborhood as it became my 'default' spot.
