It is incredible that NYC is forcing places like this to close their doors. It was one of NYC best values. We went many times and always been very happy. I am glad I was there on their last night.
New Year's Eve at Brasserie -- it's last night in existence. Excellent evening. Food and service were great. It will be missed. It's a shame that they're closing this institution.
The Brasserie was one of the greatest restaurants in NYC. My wife and I had our first date there and we loved it so much that we decided to get married there. It was truly beautiful with amazing food. It will be missed.
The Brasserie was our favorite restaurant fir 45 years.Never had a meal less than excellent.
Have been here before and found it OK, but not special. That changed with this visit. Brasserie has upped its game to another level and is now very good. Food, service and wine list are very good. Brasserie is also easy on the budget. Well worth a visit.
It was our last lunch at brasserie and we were so sad during it. Even until the very last second everything was so wonderful. You look around at all the history that the restaurant has and it is so wonderful. We are very sad to see the restaurant leave us but it had a long life of wonderful memories. All the managers and employees deserve a round of applause and I hope they will all be taken care of.
Waiter got one order wrong and all had finished before that person was served. Salmon ordered rare arrived cooked through and a completely different preparation to the one described by waiter. Waiter took extremely long time to produce dessert menu. Sad end to a great restaurant
I am so sad to see this institution close its doors in a few days. I am hoping that by some miracle, the restaurant decides to reopen in a different location. I feel bad for those who never had a chance to enjoy the food at Brasserie, for it has been consistently good and the service is always top-notch. This restaurant will be missed.
The service was good, but food were served really slow. Came here for the christmas dinner pre fixe, the food was just okay, nothing spectacular. Will skip it next time.
I am a regular at brasserie bc food is always good, decently pric d for this midtown neighborhod . Prix fixe and al a carte, american cuisine with a slight French accent. lovely decor
Its really just psychology. It's a large space, and gives a rather cold feeling as a result. The food itself was just excellent, and the service was very helpful. The restaurant was maybe 1/3 full for Christmas dinner, and it's clear why. With everything the same, or even with higher prices, but in a smaller place with a more happy atmosphere, it would have been crowded with happy diners.
We have eaten at the Brasserie for Christmas Brunch, for the last few years. They have raised the price from $19,99 to $26.00. They no longer offer a champagne as a drink and it is impossibly noisy. Next year, we will try somewhere else.
Love this institution. Too bad it is closing. A perfect spot for mid town lunch. Will miss this post-modern gem.
We enjoyed a late pre-Christmas dinner at Brasserie, but were dismayed to find out when we left that they would not be there in 2016. I'm sad that I took so long to try the place, as they delivered an excellent bistro menu with great service and a solid wine list.
The staff is so efficient, friendly and welcoming. The prix fixe Sunday brunch is an outstanding value.
I have come here at times for 25 years. It is jazzed up inside now and the people are very solicitous, and it is, I admit, a decent place midtown. We recently had a brunch here and 50% of the food ordered by 5 of us was really good and 50% was OK. Service disappeared for long periods of time. OK if you want to be there, but also OK to pick among the many options within 3 blocks.
This restaurant is scheduled to close at the end of December, so we went to have one last meal there. The welcome was warm and the table we were given fulfilled the requests we had made. The room is a mid-century classic and remains stunning. The food was, as always, excellent. The server was so disinterested and the service so slow and inattentive that it was clear that she had stopped trying. Nevertheless, I would urge you to go if you have not been, and to go again if you have.
Another great New York restaurant is closing. What a shame.
Enjoyed an amazing Sunday Brunch. The baguettes were as French as one can find this far North of Paris. The food was as good as it gets. The service was right on par with the Cuisine. A great find and new regular stop when in NYC.
FOOD AND SERVICE HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOOD~~SORRY TO HEAR THAT IT IS CLOSING
