My husband and I went there on a date night. We were in the mood for something different. We were pleasantly surprised by how creative each course was. We had the 4 course package called “The ride”. It gives you a 4 course savory line up followed by dessert. Each thing that came out was so flavorful and creatively constructed. My husband is a chef that has cooked for over 20 years in many countries and he was blown away by the chef’s style and innovative ways. We would recommend this for a great option if you’re looking to be wowed in a casual setting. Brassica Kitchen is 5 star!

It was a lovely dinner with "The Ride". The wine pairing was great but the cost was not made obvious. Overall it was a great experience but the staff should make sure they mention the wine pairing cost.

What an experience! I met a former colleague at Brassica for an evening of nostalgia and good conversation, and we ended up talking all about the food! The menu grows more interesting each time, as Chef Jeremy explores his Asian leanings. We started with the grilled carrots with crispy quinoa, and a potato bun. Both were delicious. We went on to the scallops with tiger cream celeriac and corn noodles. Exceptional! And, because one just has to, we added some of the trademark fried chicken (which the strangers sitting next to us wanted to try from our plate!) Dessert, which I almost ignored because I was near my limits, was a delicious invention of savory-sweet fruit and ice cream. My colleague cautioned me several times to please NOT lick the plates, but really, who would mind? As always, we had a terrific time, highlighted by a brief visit from the Chef and warm welcomes from the servers. Thank heavens for Brassica!

Very expensive, hipster-pretentious food. Servers’ descriptions of food and particularly wines are hilarious. They are so scripted - obvious when you ask a follow-up question and they can’t answer it. One of the servers described the fish as a halibut and then as a yellowtail. Could two fish be more different from one another?

Two of us ordered The Ride (tasting menu) and two ordered Full Ride (with wine pairing). Of each of the six courses, at least two of us didn’t like the dish. Wines were pretty terrible - almost mildew flavor on two, musky on others. Prices indicate a 4 or 5 star dining experience, but this food is just not up to par. Will not be returning.

Visited here once to try their ramen on the special Tuesday menu and HAD to come back to sample from the daily options. Did not disappoint! 4 dishes proved to be plenty for myself and my date, and everything was interesting and delicious.

Review is for the dinner and tasting menu.

Wife and I have been to a lot of Eater's top ranked restaurants in the city and decided to venture out to Jamaica Plain to give Brassica a try for a special occasion. We were pleasantly surprised with what we found. The ambiance and waiters etc were great, but cutting to the chase, the food was unbelievable. Every course was extremely well cooked, extremely original, and absolutely packed with flavor. The head chef came over to hand deliver some of the courses, and his excitement and passion for the food was palpable.

Have not been this impressed since we ate at Table in Cambridge. I would say the food at Brassica compares favorably, and I appreciate the additional courses.

The wine pairing was good, not great, but it's hard to complain for the price. Also worth mentioning that the cocktails here are also excellent and quite unique.

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!
