Sunday brunch is my favorite with the grapefruit mimosas and the breakfast options. I was disappointed this time with the service . The server was more interested in hanging out with his co workers than paying attention to his customers.

I've been here 5 times in the last year and it's one of my favorite restaurants!! Celebrated my birthday & valentines with my handsome date. It has become one his favorite restaurants too, and he has a very delicate and refined pallet. Our waiter was Jeremy, and he was wonderful!

Great service even in Valentine’s Day. Specials were fantastic and a great surprise on a holiday . Instead of a restricted special menu , the chef had many specials off the
Menu and the full menu. Wonderful date night

Delicious food, great service, rose petals, candlelight, champagne and red wine made our Valentine's dinner memorable. The branzino is amazing. Recommend the nutella crepe for dessert.

Our service from Rob was great. He was attentive but not pushy or a nuisance.
It was really warm in the restaurant. Both my date and I were sweating by the end of our soup course.

Over all a fun experience and interesting people watching. Goods bar drinks and nice waitress. However the Lobster Bisque was in reality just tomato soup! Will never order that again.

We were disappointed in the service offered.
The staff, front desk, bar staff and table waiter seemed aloof and had the attitude that we were lucky to be there.
Food was OK but not what we expected from a French themed restaurant.

The food at Brasserie 19 was excellent, but the service was shockingly bad. Even with a reservation, we waited more than 15 menus for menus and drink orders after being seated, and the restaurant was far from full. After a considerable wait, we self-served menus from the hostesses area, and she appeared to be indifferent about the fact that we still had no menus. The waitress was pleasant but not knowledgable about the menu, and the service was slow. Great food, but with so many outstanding restaurants in the area, I'd recommend going elsewhere.

I picked this place for our anniversary lunch, Adrian was our waiter, him and the rest of the staff is super friendly, we went there for lunch, had tuna tartare, onoin soup and soup du jour (it was cauliflower cream) lunch filet mignon and nicoise tuna salad all together with a bottle of Stags Leap CabSauv.
ambiance is the best, quiet, my younger son loved the oysters, will try to go back soon.

Food has never disappointed, menu has been consistently robust, strong in flavor, and muscular, consistent with a high end neighborhood brasserie, wine selection is spectacular, and table presentation spare and clean.

Noise level has been a consistent huge detractor for the small segment of loyal diners who seek quality American fare but prefer sedate dining. While this may not be the mission and theme of B19, we humbly plead our case with the proprietors to consider creating a tiny quiet corner (away from the RR) for loyalists who are outliers!

I had the Seafood salad which was wonderful, but the Green Goddess dressing left a lot to be desired. My friend had Seafood Risotto & it was an A+. Have been here before and will definitely return!!! We also had Creme Brûlée & Blueberry Bread Pudding, and both were excellent.

Slow service. Getting a glass of wine was slow. Getting our food was slow. The restaurant was hardly 25% full. My wife's salmon was quite ordinary. My grouper had been salted way too much. Our waiter was very cordial and attentive. The blueberry bread pudding was delicious. For us you are competing with the former Tony Mandola's restaurant which we went too often. It is far from the same.

Way too expensive for the experience and the food.

We are long time 19 supporters. This was a real letdown

We went to this restaurant on NYE. We had a reservation and were sat right away. It took the waitor at least 20 minutes to come to our table and ask if we wanted something. The restaurant was not even full. Once the waitor came by he was very attentive. My steak was slightly over cooked and I received another steak within 5 minutes. The 2nd filet I received was cooked medium rare which is what I ordered.
