One of my favorite places!One of my favorite places! Tonight I tried the parsnip soup and lamb loin specials. Both were excellent. I've never had a bad meal here.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood moderately priced restaurantThe food at Brasserie is good but the noise can still be an issue. The noise can be beat if one goes either earlier or later than the typical dining times. The best place to sit is the booths but I think the regulars may take those.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ending to the dayWe visited later in the evening. The crowd was gone, so we had a very attentive and personable waiter. The lamb chops were very good, even my husband who is usually not a fan of lamb chops loved them.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBRAVO BRASSERIE!This restaurant is undoubtedly the most successful choice I've made in a long time. I chose it for Mother's Day because they offered a $49 prix-fixe with a complementary Kir Royale for mom (me)! The menu choices were exactly as shown online, and they were all so enticing that it was difficult to choose---in every course! That's not usually the case with a set menu where I've often found only one choice in each category to stand out. Everything we ordered was superb. I remember the original Brasserie, and love the way it has been updated. It's stunning. Both my daughter and I cannot recommend it enough!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a PleasureThis is by far one of my favorite restaurants. It never fails. The food is always so good and the service is always top notch. It fits all my needs. It's in my neighborhood, it's the perfect brunch, lunch and romantic dinner. I can't say enough good things.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNoiseI go to Brasserie all the time, both for lunch and for dinner, and my most recent experience there, at 12:30 PM on a Wednesday in a typical work week, was the noisiest ever. I literally couldn't hear my server (who has been my server, completely audibly, many times before). Unfortunately, I also couldn't hear my client, who was sitting about 3 feet away from me.
I don't see an easy solution to this...the food is great, the service is impeccable, the bar drinks are super, but if you want to have a conversation at the peak of the business lunch rush hour, you're out of luck.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingI am always there so that has to say - Outstanding............5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch!We truly enjoyed our visit to the Brasserie, as usual. Great food, great service, and you are 'not' rushed. Ideal spot to catch up with a friend's news and linger over that last cup of coffee.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our experience, althoughEnjoyed our experience, although the round table was a bit too large for our party of five. Great wine selection, delicious "typical" bistro fare, was a hit with our business group. Friendly server, took care of our needs and did not hover. It was my second time and my colleagues' first time dining here; it won't be our last.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful French BrasserieWonderful French preparations in a contemporary scene.

He was kind enough to move us to another table that was not in the kindergarden section.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat weekend brunch spotGreat underappreciated spot for brunch in Midtown. Brunch men wasn't much more expensive than a coffee shop, for exceptional food and ambiance. I had the Raclette -- melted cheese over roast potatoes, poached eggs and other delicious odds and ends. It was spectacular. I'll be back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Gem in MidtownVery mod scene almost like a being in a lux space pod. Food and service excellent with very attentive wait staff.

Have been here several times and it or the food never disappoints3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy to be surprised!...The perfect place to take a visitor from out of town and as well treat yourself to an electric environment, very NYC. We were impressive with the attentive, intuitive service, even for a packed lunchtime. Our request for a nice table was accommodated with a perfect booth.

Modern, vibrant atmosphere.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur regular spot for great foodMy partner and I go to Brasserie regularly--at least once a week. We love the atmosphere which is modern and clean. The food is always delicious across the board--seafood, steak, chicken--all great. They usually always accommodate our request for a booth and the service is personal and attentive. We've been at lunch, when the place is packed with businessmen. But dinner is usually more quiet with a nice energy.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA no-brainer good choice.Terrific place for a business lunch or an excellent brunch.2/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA wide choice of delicaciesA wide choice of delicacies a la carte or prix fixe in a spacious, gracious, and well-lit environment.

Prixe fix menu included great choices (iced platter was fun!) and server was knowledgeable and helpful. We were checked on several times by the manager, and when my steak was overdone, they quickly and graciously replaced it with a rare one. Cool, modern interior - pretty space, but very noisy.12/19/2012 12:00:00 AMNice placeI came here last summer during Restaurant Week with a good friend of mine and we both loved the place. Fancy and great service. The food was delicious. Can't wait to go back.7/25/2012 12:00:00 AM
