As always, the food and service were spectacular. The food is creative and interesting. If you like new and different food, this is definitely the place for you. Their small plates are best when shared. That way you get to try more stuff.

Overall the food was very good. Ordered the brussel sprouts, the Sprouts were a little overdone and I thought overdressed, although the flavors were great. Would have liked a bit more brussel sprout flavor. The ribeye steak dish was great, if you like torched on the outside and Raw on the inside. Great flavors. Also ordered the beets dish, the beach were done perfectly and the dressing had great depth of flavor, perhaps just a little overdressed. The roasted sunchokes we're done very well and very well-dressed . The service was great.

The cocktail program here is exceptional. As well as the good, I highly recommend the BK bolognese.

I had the honey pie for desert and everything about was perfect.
Good for a solo dine like I did myself, or to bring friends along and try their tasting menu. I didn’t get to try it but given the food I did have here I can only imagine is incredible.

Will definitely be returning soon!

My fiance and I visited Brassica Kitchen to celebrate our 6 years together. We were interested in the adventurous menu, plus small plates are our go-to! We chose to do the whole ride - 7 appetizer/dinner plates, 1 dessert, and 3 wine pairings. We were very impressed by the creativeness of the dishes. Many of them seemed like what you would see on Iron Chef Gauntlet. Our server was also very accommodating to a dislike of mayonnaise/cream sauces. We will absolutely return, excited to see what new items rotate through the menu throughout the year!

I can’t stop going to this restaurant. We get the Ride, which is their tasting menu and it never disappoints. This is the best restaurant I have ever eaten at. Their food is so creative and hits all the notes in terms of texture and flavor combinations. The staff is amazing and very accommodating. I can’t wait to go back.

Brassica may be our favorite restaurant in the Boston area! The food here is fantastic and service is always great. The brussel sprouts and fried chicken are AMAZING. It's worth coming here for just those 2 dishes. We also ordered the burrata and bolognese, both of which were fantastic.

The food that I’ve had there is outstanding, and the servers are all wonderful. The only two criticisms I have are that depending on what you order, you may end up with a hefty bill and a very small portion of food. Also, there are a lot of tables and not much room to move around. I’d say it’s definitely worth a shot though!

I booked a weeknight reservation at Brassica for an anniversary with my girlfriend. We both arrived way overdressed from more formal commitments earlier in the day - Brassica’s setting is most definitely unpretentious. Greeted by the staff who were absolutely awesome, from end-to-end.

We ended up ordering the chef’s tasting menu. Five courses plus a dessert for $40 each, and each was better than the last. Brassica’s food was original, authentic, and super creative. Prices on par with what’d you’d expect for a night out, but the quality of food and service far surpass.

Value play. Already told a number of friends to put Brassica on their list, and I can’t wait to return.

So glad I checked out Brassica at night. I'd been to the coffee shop version during the day, but it's hard to imagine it as a restaurant. However, with lowered lights and not much changing, it's a great casual dinner spot. We went for a celebratory meal and did "The Ride," their tasting menu without wine pairings for $40. We had five outstanding dishes and a strange and scrumptious dessert (chocolate moussey thing with chia seed gel? jam?). I had a special cocktail and a very nice Cabernet and my date (okay husband) had a hopped cider from a very decent beer list and a vermouth as a dessert wine. The steak and clams was to die for. The hiramasa sushi app was delicate and decadent at once. The beet-yogurt dish was tart, crunchy, and delicious. Did I mention the weird and wonderful dessert? The staff is also casual and funny while also being super on top of things and quite knowledgeable. Highly recommend even if you don't live anywhere near Forest Hills.

Amazing! We frequent Brassica for coffee and breakfast but haven't made it for dinner in a while since having a baby. They went above and beyond to accomodate our 1 year old, giving us a 4-top for 2 people + toddler so she couldn't grab at everything. They also gave her a grilled cheese right when we walked in the door so she wasn't waiting. Beyond that, the ambiance is great, service is always amazing and friendly, awesome drink menu and the food is OUTSTANDING!! Every dish was complex, and delicious. They play with flavors in the best way. Can't say enough good things about it!

While parking in this quickly densifying part of Jamaica Plain was tricky, the liveliness & warmth of the place and staff made all the difference. Creative hip spot for young & young at heart. The cocktails and food were creative & interesting with unusual or artfully use of materials. The house made amarro at the end sealed the deal!
