The onion fritters were too oily and dense. Supposed to be light and airy. The fish and chips. Let me make this bold statement. All frozen fish is bland and taste like cardboard and it was also too greasy. The star of the meal was the macaroni and cheese which as you know is a side dish. The corn chowder was bad. Quiche was just okay. No bread and butter. Service was a bit on the slow side but very friendly.
Was disappointed in their new menu. We always got the onion break with dip as an appetizer. They now have onion fritters - the only redeeming part of this new appetizer was the dips for the fritters. Our onion soup was just OK, my husband ordered the seafood cioppino for his main dish. ALthough loaded with fish and seafood, the sauce was bland. I ordered their bread pudding and that was the best part of my meal. Would I go back again????????not sure. I must say the young lady that waited on us was terrific!!!!!
Food was very good, service excellent. Overall very pleased.
Really great lunch. We had the Pow Pow shrimp for an appetizer and it was spot on. Just the right amount of spicy. Hubby truly doesn't like anything spicy, so I worried, but the sweetness of the dish offset the spice and he loved it.
The waitstaff was truly attentive. Will look forward to going back.
Great server , good social distancing !!
This is the 2nd time we have celebrated a birthday here and we were not disappointed either time. The bisque was just the right temperature, the fried green tomatoes were a great appetizer and the short ribs meat fell off the bone. Although this is a bit far for us to travel for dinner, (hour away), we enjoyed our food both times so much, we will be back again soon.
Our server, Sierra, was excellent. She was fun to be around and added to our good experience on date night. The food and drinks were very good as usual. This is a wonderful place.
The food was terrific; everything we ordered, from apps to entrees to desserts, was delicious. The service was great, too!
First time to Braised Onion and it was a beautiful experience. Food was very good, atmosphere was so very relaxing and beautiful, and service was very attentive. It will be one of my 'return' to places when in Ocala from now on.
We enjoyed our dining experience at Braised Onion, especially the fact that all CDC recommended practices were in place.
The food here is excellent and priced reasonable. The drinks are also priced reasonably. We will definitely be returning here to try more of their dishes.
This was our first visit, but certainly won’t be our last. All of the staff were very friendly, the servers were excellent and the food was awesome! A very nice, relaxed vibe made for a great experience.
Having not been to Braised Onion in 6 months due to the quarantine, we chose to go at mid-afternoon to avoid crowds. Food was WONDERFUL, service was excellent, atmosphere was quiet and intimate. We will most certainly return sooner than the last time!
We decided to go out to a restaurant for our 46th Wedding Anniversary. We had stayed in for months.
The Braised Onion had recently opened after an extended closing. We had reservations for 5:00 p.m. on Sunday and we were one of two couples at the restaurant.
The service and the food was excellent.
I hope that they are able to get their clientele back as soon as possible.
First visit. Very pleased with service, food and comfort. Will certainly return.
The food is awesome and the service top notch!! Highly recommend.
We made a reservation through OPENTABLE for 6:00 pm March 11, 2020 for a party of 10. Reservation number 2109852629.
We arrived at 6:02 pm due to traffic and were told that there would be a 10 minute delay due to a "large" 30 person "walk-in" about 20 minutes ago. I explained that we had Reilly tickets for 7:30 pm and I was told that it was not a problem. We waited. 20 minutes later, we were still not seated so I spoke to a young lady who went to see what she can do. Around 6:35 pm, we were seated. We explained to the waiter that we had to be out by 7:15 to get to the Reilly on time. He took our drink and orders on the spot. Drinks did arrive. Our food was not on the table at 7:20 pm so one of our party walked to see what was happening. The lady who first told us that we would be delayed 10 minutes at the onset came out and told us it would be another 10 to 15 minutes.
We walked out and we will not return nor will any of our group. Keep in mind that we were REGULARS.
As a comment, when an "unreserved" group comes in, please look after the "reserved" group first. We found out that there were only 2 wait staff present. Understaffed? I guess if the 30 were refused (or served after us), none of this would have happened. So, we did not get our dinner and in the end, we missed part of our performance. Braised Onion ruined the entire evening.
AND on top of that, I send this very same message to their site directly and they DID NOT EVEN RESPOND!
We have been there before but it's been a long time. Loved it!
Mighty fine food, service and ambience. The only knock and (it's not a deal breaker) was the noise. It was loud, but joyous.
Excellent dinner. Good service.
We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated on time. There were empty booths and I asked if we could have one, since we were going to be seated at a table for four, anyway. We were told those were reserved. Shortly after, other diners arrived and after being led to tables, we could see they were asking about sitting in a booth. Their requests were granted. Throughout the time we were there, there was always at least one open booth. That set the tone. My husband had the pork special and said it was good. I ordered my prime rib medium well, and it was medium rare if not rare. On the plus side, the drinks were good. Service was mediocre. When leaving I ran into the owner and shared our experience with her. She was apologetic and gave us a gift certificate for a future visit. It’s a 45 minute drive so I’m not sure we’ll be back, but the gesture was appreciated.
We had a wonderful meal with attentive wait staff. Excellent soup and our steaks were cooked to perfection.
Slow service, overpriced. Out os 4 dinner, the only food anyone liked was the coconut shrimp. Will not return.
Our food was amazing and even though we were just a couple of minutes late for our reservation we were still seated pretty promptly so yes highly recommend great food and service
It was good, not great but not bad. Food was average for what they serve. I think they do a decent job but for the price, I want to be more impressed. Not a place I would avoid but not a place I would race back to. I think the best part are the people. They are very nice!!
Such a super place to have a lovely dinner as a special occasion, or just a dinner out. The staff is very helpful and kind. Our service was outstanding. Food is very good. We love coming here.
We love bringing friends their for dinner. It’s a great place!
Braised Onion is one of our favorite restaurants because of the excellent food and service. Dining there is always a pleasant experience.
We went to this place lase year and it was top notch this year forget it. They ran out of prime rib at 7 pm this was also our dinner time .Served bread and was told they had no more butter BUT was making some ??My stake was cool and my wife's also . My friend ribs were cold as hell .She never asked if we wanted coffee or desert after dinner .She just dropped the bill and gone. AND so are we <<<<.
Very disappointed. Valentine's Day dinner with my wife. The restaurant was understaffed. My wife's lobster AND my grouper were both undercooked. The surf and turf was way way overpriced at $51.00. They tried to make it right by offering us free dessert, which we took home with us. At this price we didn't feel they went far enough to make things more enjoyable. I'm not looking for a free meal but they could've done better. I wont be returning or recommending this restaurant. 😔😔😔
Had reservations for Valentine’s Day, however they seemed a bit short staffed. Our server was excellent though. I didn’t like that we were seated near the bar and consequently, had to deal with rude conversations and people’s rears all night long. In the future I will insist on a table not near the bar and will advise friends of the same.
The Valentine's menu was much more expensive than the regular menu and had less choices; the expense was the only negative thing. Our waiter, Tony, was great.
Awesome staff and great food !! Will definitely visit this restaurant again.
Great food, outstanding service in a nice, friendly (not pretentious) environment. It can get a bit noisy at peak hours Friday/Saturday evenings, but well worth that small inconvenience. Braised beef, salmon, chicken always prepared perfectly. We always go for any celebration, as we know it will be virtually perfect every time.
Celebrating Birthday. Prime rib ordered for everyone with baked potatoes and broccoli. Everything was cold. Major disappointment. Soups, salads, bread were good. Ordered dessert. No free dessert for the birthday girl. However the owner did stop by the table next to us to say hello to someone and offered them free dessert... guess it matters who you know!
Service was attentive. This is second bad experience with Prime Rib night offered Fridays/Saturdays.
Don’t know if we will order in the future.
We enjoy eating here and have been coming for a numbers of years!
We’ve even had Ladies Church luncheons here! So nice!!
Fantastic prime rib and liver & onions dinners. Wait staff was perfection. The restaurant was clean and beautiful. Our first time there, but we will be going their again real soon!!
Very nice dinner and very good experience.
We were late. But staff was fast and friendly
$35.00 for a steak 1/2 thick, overpriced. Cold broccoli, and barely warm potato. Not the quality I was expecting.
