Met a work friend here for lunch and shopping. We had the BEST quiche either of us have ever had. Light, fluffy, tasty, mouth-watering... wonderful! The salade de maison that accompanied it was perfect. The prices were right, the atmosphere was enchanting and the staff attentive and helpful. Definitely worth the trip, and worth going back.
My girlfriend and I went here for valentines day. The location, town, and setting were great. However, I was not impressed with the food. I had the lamb shank and she had salmon. Both portions were small, the sides were nothing special(mashed potatoes and steamed green beans) and the food was alright. I will say the lobster bisque we started with was very good. This could have been the set menu because of the day we went but I don't think I will be going back to find out.
Great food and upscale feel. Our server was so friendly and relaxed but very attentive. The food and wine were outstanding. We were there for lunch and ordered salads. Mine came with perfectly seared ahi tuna. Will definitely go again.
Heard a lot about Brasserie from friends who dine there frequently, so we had high expectations. Sorry to say our experience did not meet those expectations. The restaurant is lovely and we had a great table by the fireplace and the restaurant is fairly quiet, even though it was full, so you can actually have a conversation. So all those things are positive along with friendly service. BUT, the menus were tattered and stained, which does not make a good impression and our dinners were lackluster in both flavor and presentation. This is NOT fine french cuisine as billed. So, nice enough, but not what it could be.
My first visit on a chilly November Saturday evening yielded a very good meal. Service was a bit odd for an expensive restaurant. Our waiter was great, but seemed misplaced for a restaurant serving 30 - 45 entrees. Salads were good (house, caeser and hearts of palm). Entrees were excellent; veal shank (like butter), lamb chops and duck breast (smallish serving, plate looked lonely). Beautiful interior, though the tv sets were distracting. Romantic fireplace, dark woods all around, really quite lovely.
I took my wife here for her birthday and we were very impressed with the quality of the food and service. I can't speak too much on the typical atmosphere of the restaurant since we were there on a Tuesday night (only 1-2 other couples), but the restaurant itself is very comfortable and well-decorated with heavy dark wood beams and wall paneling and a bright fire in a warm stone fireplace.
I believe that the Lobster Bisque may be the best I have ever had. It comes with an exuding puff pastry on top through which you have to dig to get to the bisque. It is absolutely delicious.
Unfortunately we did not have a good experience. The service was slow and we sat at our table for quite a while before a waiter approached to give us menus and take our drink orders. My meal was very good but two others ordered the short rib and scallops which was badly overcooked. It should not have come out of the kitchen. To their credit, the chef did come out to the table to apologize and ask what he could do which was very nice. However, the right thing to do would have been to take at least one of the meal charges off of our bill which they did not do. We didn't feel like arguing about it so we just decided that it probably isn't a place we would go to again.
unfortunately this restaurant seems to be going down hill a bit - the place was empty but for two tables at lunch on a beautiful day in Skippack, Pa. Menus were so worn they were close to falling apart. Our dining partners were delayed in traffic by 30 minutes and we finally had to track down our waiter to get a drink and some bread while waiting for them to arrive. Two of us had the salmon dish which was very good, but the other had the mussels, which were not very tasty and contained much more sausage than mussels. Sad to see this happen to a restaurant we had always enjoyed.
The highlight of the evening was the visit by the Zombies touring the 'hood. They sat at the bar for a half hour. We were given a table by the fireplace which was nice. Both the appy's and the entrees were large portions. The crab crepes were okay as was the escargot. I've never been served so many snails; unfortunately the numbers did not compensate for the grittiness and general lack of flavor. Both the duck and snapper special entrees were large enough for a doggie bag not nothing to rave about. Dessert was okay too. Cocktails were higher priced than many restaurants in town. Very expensive for what you're getting; we didn't see the value.
Frequented Brassiere 73 on many occasions. Always have an enjoyable visit.Food is great, service is very good. Ambience is appropriate for a romantic evening or for small groups.
