    I was surprised at how dated this place felt. The food, except for the bread, and the lemon tart I had was inedible- two days later I am still horrified by how unappealing it was. I may still come here for lunch, but NEVER AGAIN for dinner.

    Dined on 4/18/2008
    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.

    Dined on 4/15/2008
    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.

  • Brasserie is my favorite Sunday-mor
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 4/6/2008
    Brasserie is my favorite Sunday-morning brunch spot--the best French toast in the city (or anywhere, as far as I'm concerned). The scene is always buzzing and the food is consistently good. Cocktails also good. If you can't get a table take a seat at the bar to eat. The one drawback is the noise--it bounces off every surface in the place and hearing your companions can be difficult, but not impossible.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 3/26/2008
    Would be a great business meeting spot if they could do something about the absurd noise level. I lost my voice shouting across the table and there were only 3 of us. Also, I have found I get much better tables when I don't book through open Table. My sample isn't huge but out of 5 dinners at Brasserie with colleagues in the past year they put us in the loudest spots if we book through the site (3) while we get a booth if one of us calls (2).

    Absolutely perfect! Dining a little earlier as we did (6:30 pm) allows for a slower paced, more enjoyable experience. Our waiter was friendly and well informed and he answered our endless questions. Both entrees (sirloin and scallops) were perfect and the signature dessert is a must. I would (and will) recommend Brasserie to anyone who is willing to spend a modest amount of money on an extraordinary dining experience.
