    La Brasa is in a continuing upgrade mode which makes it among our favorites at the moment. The partners are doing a very good job of improving the ambience of the historic location. And, the chef, who has always had a nice Peruvian repertoire, seems to be ramping up his efforts. The rotisserie chicken is outstanding, as is the loma saltado, and ceviche. The menu is varied with something that will please most anyone! Service is generally good but could use a little improvement. These folks are working hard and deserve your business.

    The food was great, the wine by glass is a little over priced. Not the place for a quiet romantic dinner as the noise level is too high when the restaurant was busy. Did not have their full menu of desserts which was disappointing

    Been to La Brasa at least 4 times already. Food is great. I've tried just about everything, from the chicken, to beef, to shrimp ceviche. It is all great. Service is sometimes OK, but still better than any chain restaurant. In fact, we ordered a shrimp appetizer, the server brought us beef, but we loved the beef. Server wasn't focused, but food made up for his inabilities. My one negative about this place are the mixed drinks. Minimal alcohol content doesn't justify cost.

    The food was good. We had seen the two entrees and a bottle of wine for $30. When we got there and asked which entrees it was, we were told the special is now $40. I ordered a vegetarian option that listed tofu as an ingredient. My friend mentioned the tofu and the server said they didn't have tofu. When we ordered dessert after ordering the tres leches. The server said they didn't have that. I can understand running out of things, but the server should have mentioned when he offered dessert. Also, he wasn't apologetic or friendly about it, just seemed a bit bothered. The food was pretty good, but the blah service makes the price not worth it.

    The ambiance was striking. We sat near the bar and were intrigued with the decorations displayed on the walls. The waiter was well-presented and cordial. I had the paella and my wife had chicken that had been in a marinade for 48 hours. Needless to say, her chicken was flavorful and moist. To top it off, it was served with a cilantro sauce and fried plantains. What a combination. For an added touch, her meal was served on a wooden plate in the shape of the state of Oklahoma. The prices were pleasantly reasonable and the live music played by a local musician complemented the overall experience. It is a must-repeat restaurant.

    After hearing about the roasted chicken, my girlfriend and I split a whole bird. We had plenty of leftovers. It was extremely well cooked. We went on a Friday night around 6:30 and there weren't a lot of people yet. We had reservations but probably didn't need them that early. There was live music- a guy and a guitar singing singer-songwriter type songs. He was talented and tasteful in the songs he played.

    Our evening with friends at La Brasa was a big hit with everyone! The food was absolutely scrumptious and servings were quite generous. Sides of mashed potatoes and an unusual rice concoction were perfect. Their rotisserie chicken was to die for. We cannot wait to return for another delicious meal ... may give lunch a try next time. Don't miss this neighborhood gem!

    First time at La Brasa, would go back for the food. The good: Food and drinks were excellent. Our table of (5) ordered a pitcher of the Sangria, a few of us had the strawberry, jalepeno margarita, tuna ceviche appetizer and the Pollo a La Brasa y China with additional sides. Everything tasted great, there was plenty of food to take home left overs. A good value for the quality and volume of food you get. The not so good: Service, our waiter was nice and friendly but appeared to be new to the service industry, i.e. we had to ask a couple of times for appetizer plates, the appetizer came without the chips, we had to remind the waiter to bring chips.

    This was our second visit to La Brasa. The first time we enjoyed ceviche and decided to go back for a birthday dinner. We ordered the large family meal with 2 chickens and sides and everyone in our group really liked it. The chicken has a distinctive flair and the way it is served with lettuce, slaw, sauces is unique and fun! They were also kind enough to bring out a birthday cake which was very nicely done! We plan to return!

    We went on their date night special, (for those who don't know it's pretty much two entrees and a bottle of wine for $30). The moment you walk in you're greeted with a smile and a beautiful ambiance. The only reason I have them a low score on service is due to the wait with our orders being taken, (waited about 30 minutes for someone to remember we were there), but that was obviously because they were learnig the ropes. Amazing food and worth every penny!

    The service was a little slower than usual, but this could be attributed to our arrival time of 6:30 since that was apparently the arrival time of a number of patrons. The food was very good as usual and the noise level was energetic which was good. We will dine there again and will recommend La Brasa to others.

    I celebrated my birthday at La Brasa with my girlfriends. I thought the service was great. Our waitress was awesome. We had people that arrived at different times, and our waitress materialized automatically each time someone sat down to take drink orders immediately. The food was delicious. The chicken was JUICY, well seasoned and with the right amount of char. I don't even like Queso dip, but @ La Brasa, everything is tasty! I had the miso glazed Chilean sea bass, it was very good. We shared chicken and the Afro-Peruvian fried rice. La Brasa is affordable, the ambiance is sexy and the food tastes good. What else can you ask for?

    We are from Ada and are looking to move back to OKC in the future so we have been spending some weekends driving around refamialarizing with OKC. We were driving through the Asian District and my wife noticed La Brasa and we drove back by and decided to give it a try on our next visit to OKC. We loved everything about our dining experience and had a wonderful time.

    It's difficult to think the focus could be on chicken AND differentiated, but La Brasa does it well. The chicken is tender and just delicious. The vegetables are done well and some unique for our area, such as yuca, and the sauces are delightful! The service is efficient and friendly, never pretentious or "in your face". We've been there 3 times now and will likely be back often!

    We arrived for 5p reservations and the gate to enter was locked. They finally opened a side door to allow us to enter. The hostess seemed thoroughly confused about where to place us and was in a rush so she said she would return to seat us momentarily. We were then seated and the server saw us for 10 minutes before greeting us and getting water. he was polite and all and we ordered queso, it was awful. Room temperature, not hot at all and the taste was quite disgusting. The entrees were subpar and the waiter was apologetic about the queso and took it off our tab. We did order dessert, Churro's, and they were the best part of the meal.

    La Brasa is set in the vintage Kamps building and has a hipster reno (renovated) feel. The evening I was there, they had live music nicely blending in with the ambience. The menu is uniquely Peruvian - no burger and fries. The Pollo a la Brasa is exquisite and plenty to share. Each appetizer and side is prepared carefully. The churros and French press are fantastic finish to the meal. The restaurant is a little too loud for a romantic evening, but La Brasa is a hot spot to dine for foodies and a great night out for most any occasion.

    We went for our anniversary and I wanted to love this place, but didn't. We had a 7:30 reservation but weren't seated until 7:50. The real deal breaker for me, and I feel like an old lady here, was the noise level. They had a dj playing music that was so loud we had to yell to be heard. Even our waitress mentioned the noise level. I ordered the pollo a la brasa, which was flavorful but had to be carved on the board on which it's served with the juices running everywhere (no lip on the serving piece). It was like eating crab legs where you work like hell for little yield. I love that this place is trying to offer something different but I don't know they're doing it well enough to give it another try.

    The food is very good-excellent fusion flavors. The Pollo La Brasa is delicious as is the Tuna Ceviche. The portions are huge and the prices are moderate. The atmosphere is dark and sort of Bohemian, but they are trying hard and doing a good job. The service was very good-quick, efficient and just the right amount of attention. There are so many mediocre restaurants in OKC that charge more and give less-give this one a try. You won't be disappointed.
