Simply wonderful would go many times again. Great bargain.
My wife and I came here to celebrate our 37th Wedding Anniversary. The service was great the food was very good, in fact it was delicious! Drinks were excellent! We will return soon! I recommend The Braised Onion to anybody that wants to have a memorable dining experience. The Shrimp and Grits, Onion Soup, Pear Salad, were all delicious. The Bread Pudding was to die for.
We will come back on a Friday evening when there is live entertainment, we hear that the guy that plays there is very good!
Table was set-up for our party of 8. Service was very good. Our waitress was attentive and no problem that we came in separately. I had the pecan crusted salmon over spinach and quinoa - excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We were pleased to see the restaurant was filled with diners. Definitely recommended
Excellent food, always consistent. Alcoholic drinks short on content.
Always enjoy braised onion. Food is good and service is excellent.
First time to the area so we thought we would try it out. The food was great and the Bread Pudding is to die for!! Have to try it!
The Braised Onion has amazing food and great service!
We arrived and were seated promptly. Unfortunately that was the end of it. We sat for 15 minutes and were totally ignored by all the servers. At this point we got up, told the hostess we were leaving and why. We had enjoyed our prior experiences at the Braised Onion, however this was a huge disappointment. Above ratings does not apply to food as we never got to eat.
What a wonderful find. Delightful atmosphere, great live Jazz, perfect service and outstanding dining. Definitely look forward to returning!
Great, Great, Great. Our experience at Braised Onion was terrific. The food was delicious, the service wonderful. I certainly will recommend this restaurant to my friends.
We went for dinner with friends. The service was excellent! The bar was very nice great cocktails! The food was excellent! We will be going back again soon! Had a great time!
Three couples each cell rating anniversaries. We were seated promptly and given a large booth that easily accommodated all six of us. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. She provided us with great service. We all had beef dishes and each one was prepared to our specification. The food served hot and every bite was delicious. For desert, each couple shared one of three different homemade desserts; all were yummy. This was the second time my husband and I visited this restaurant and it was great on both occasions. We highly recommend this place.
Our group of 4 all had different entrees . All were very impressed.
Our server, Rachel was very friendly and professional. She patiently answered our questions about the menu and provided small samples of the soup when my son couldn't decide which he would prefer. Everything we order was well prepared and served promptly.
Don't miss this Gem of a restaurant set in Ocala. The food is amazing should all be in capitals the word amazing. The service is beyond outstanding. And the kitchen will do anything to make the customer happy as far as changing something up or moving something around on a plate. This place is just wonderful! Unfortunately, we live 2 hours away and found the braised onion through open table. But as often as we possibly can we will go back to visit because it will be worth the 2-hour trip.
On our way from Key West to Iowa we stopped here for a very late lunch-4:30! Our waitress, Claudia, was WONDERFUL! I can't say as much for the younger so called host, hostess, "manager", etc. Claudia did EVERYTHING to make our meal comfortable. The food was good.
Great service, good food. Very comfortable. Live music and good helpings. Had the salmon, which was very good.
Good menu, good food, good wine list, friendly servers, timely service, not so good good acoustics.
Every time we go to the Braised Onion we have fabulous food and terrific service. The short ribs are phenomenal.
Love this place - good food, friendly staff.
Food was great. Service was even better. No wait - we were seated immediately upon arrival.
Would definitely go back again.
Once again we had a wonderful meal with great service!
Not a good night for this restaurant. Prime rib undercooked, tough, and hard to cut. My wife's tornedos of beef were also very tough and her risotto was heavy and gummy. On the good side my baked potato was very fresh and good and our fried onion loaf was light and tasty.
We have been here many other times and enjoyed our meal, so I will certainly give them another try.
Great meals for the 8 of us. Rachel took great care of our orders. Dinners and desserts were wonderful. We had a marvelous evening.
Best prime rib in town !! Braised Onion on 25 in Ocala. Started off with grilled Brie & Rosemary/raspberry reduction. Then Prime rib, baked potatoe ( loaded with cheese under the sour cream, bacon bits and chives) and fresh steamed broccoli. Followed by an Amerotto chocolate mousse pie. Trevor was our waiter, he was so knowledgeable oh all the foods and how they were prepared. He made our dining so pleasant. He took such good care of us. Thank you for a great night out.
Wonderful. The food is nothing short of wonderful and the service is excellent. Our waitress, Wendy was a pleasure.
So glad we read the reviews and found this gem in Ocala. Trevor did a great job with the service. Items ordered: Brie with raspberry reduction, lobster bisque, beef short ribs, and beef stroganoff.
1) Brie was great with the fruit reduction and toast
2) Spouse ordered Lobster Bisque- said she would not order again (no lobster presence)
3) Beef short ribs were great! Served with whipped mashed potatoes w/ cheese, broccoli
4) Beef stroganoff had great flavor and meat was very tender.
Garlic bread fantastic.
Excellent food and service. We have come several times and everything has been consistently first class. Recommend it highly!
Great atmosphere and food. Would definitely recommend it
Food is great without being pretentious. Good simple food with a touch of class. Service is always top notch.
Everything was outstanding except the lighting was too dark.
We take our out of town visitors frequently. Good food, excellent service, and just plain outstanding.
The Braised Onion has become my new favorite restaurant.
We enjoyed our evening with friends.. Our waiter was great, we enjoyed him as much as everything else. We'll be back !
Our server Trevor was amazing. He made excellent recommendations and clearly is a professional.
Not up to their usual standards. Service was inconsistent. Had to prod for information on the menu specials for the evening. Ordered a full Spinach salad and they did not have the dressing called for on the menu. Got seated in an "overflow" room which certainly lacks in the décor of the main dining room. Bar service was slow and the white wine was served essentially unchilled.
We were celebrating our anniversary and read all the stellar reviews and booked a reservation for four. The atmosphere was warm and cozy and we looked forward to a wonderful evening. Not so much. The air conditioner was broken and we were hot and sweaty. The noise level was very high and it was difficult to converse. Two of the four dinners were unacceptable and sent back. The beef tournados were tough and chewy and the pecan crusted salmon was dry and tasteless. The waiter apologized and said he would tell the owner. Some time had passed and he came back saying did we want another order. By the time he came back two of the diners were finished eating and we said no not now. He offered to go dinners and we said okay already upset that the evening was not a celebration at all. After another wait, the waiter came back with one to go dinner and we asked where the other one was. He was confused and FINALLY the owner came over and said she gave us one dinner to go and took half off the price of both dinners! We said totally unacceptable. She said that if we wanted full compensation that we could not take the order to go. We gave it back and she finally comped us both dinners. Totally unacceptable service from the owner. These entrees were between $19 and $21 without any salad. We were disgusted with the attitude of the owner especially after driving nearly an hour for this celebration. We don't understand the stellar reviews as we will never go back or recommend this place.
This should be an Ocala destination.
It was great. Food and service was excellent First time there. I will be back.
Everything was delicious! The server brought the food right away which was very nice not to mention Ooh so YUMMY!
