    Beautiful food! The biscuit was fluffy and flavourful - the sourdough bread was out of this world! The fried chicken was the best we have had for breakfast in Boston. Delicious omelette - overall outstanding brunch experience!

    A great night out at our favorite neighborhood gem. Food is creative, delicious and nicely presented. The vibe is friendly, hip and fun. Portions run small (small plates) but three satisfied us. Brassica never disappoints!

    Five of us ate at Brassica for the first time last week. We all love imaginative, creative food and we were not disappointed!! Everything we ate was outstanding and that is not an adjective we use often. Our wait person, Taylor, was fun and helpful and the patio was a bonus on a warm evening. We will be returning to Brassica soon.

    The open patio (with a tent) behind the restaurant is 2 feet away from several trash dumpsters. It is not appetizing nor sanitary in my opinion. No mater how you order the food the meal feel disjointed and lower quality that I expected. It us not necessarily very well put together. The service is a bit too casual to my taste. The restaurant is very accessible and many parking options.

    Very unique menu for a brunch menu. Their fried chicken dishes are really awesome and would recommend any. Had a hard time deciding on what to get simply because I wanted to try them all. Will certainly be back for another brunch outing but their dinner menu also really looks great. I would definitely recommend this place to all.

    Brassica is one my favorite restaurants and go-tos. They always experiment with the menu, and tonight their newest version of the risotto was awesome, along with basically everything else. However, our waitress, Megan, was spread incredibly thin, handling tables spread all over the restaurant, including seemingly on the patio outback. Other staff stepped in to help us, but inconsistently. Several times folks passed us by as we hoped to order dessert. The restaurant tonight was adequately staffed, so this needn't have been the case. Earlier, I ordered a hard cider drink that had grapefruit in it, which wasn't stated on the menu. Grapefruit is problematic for people on many medications, including myself, so I had to send it back. Unfortunately, I also ended up ordering a crudo dish that had mushrooms, which I don't eat at all. This was stated on the menu to the extent of using a Japanese word for mushrooms, as I learned by googling the word after I received the dish. I see this as at least partially my fault, given that I didn't ask questions about the dish or look it up this term prior to ordering. However, when one is ordering multiple dishes, it's easy to get a little distracted on something like this. I wonder if using both the Japanese word and the word "mushrooms" might be helpful. Based on my experience at Brassica, if I had mentioned this they probably would have taken the dish back. But since I had already sent the drink back, I felt awkward already -- I didn't want to be sending two things before the evening had barely gotten started. (I ate around the mushrooms, and this dish was otherwise quite good.) Sometimes things don't work as well as others, and I still love Brassica, an the folks that work there are lovely. However, more planning and communication among staff would be helpful to improve the service.

    Brassica feels like a warm, "welcome home" hug. Stoked on the new spring menu changes. Chicken fried tofu was awesome and don't think I've had anything like it, and the housemade hot sauce was the perfect accompaniment. Glad they've been able to keep the back patio!

    Service was horrible. Waiter didn’t come by the table at all, had to request sugar to 3 different people, coffee got cold waiting for them to bring me the sugar. After 20 min of sitting there had to signal the waiter to come take our order. They were attentive to other tables except ours, felt discriminated! Food was really good, too bad service was terrible.

    Brassica is one of my most favorite restaurants in Boston. I take all my visiting friends there for dinner. The chef is awesome and the food always takes you some place new. Wonderful textures and flavors paired in surprising new ways. The atmosphere is super chill and cool. I highly recommend getting “The Ride” it’s always a good time.

    Brassica is a wonderful "rustic modern" room, with just the right buzz and vibe. (A footnote: Very occasionally, the music was a little loud and bass-heavy. This was a passing distraction — and was less about the music itself than about the acoustics of the room; a larger space with higher ceilings would have smoothed this out. But, a restaurant has to know its space — so, maybe worth a look at the playlist.) The service was fabulous from the second we walked in. We were a little early for our reservation but were seated right away. And, our server was terrific: very engaging; sensitive to our needs and rhythms; and extremely knowledgeable about the menu — even down to detailed tasting notes for the wines. (At one point, we had to wait a little long for the next glass of wine. A small tick.) The food was fabulous!!! We had "The Ride" — which is the $85/per tasting menu. Worth it!!! This is a tour around about half the menu. The preparations and the nuances of flavor are truly astonishing. We had 8–10 plates. Nearly every single one was a 9 or a 10 — and none was below an 8½. The Ride included a dessert — which was a large brioche doughnut with macademia sauce. This was good in a diner sort of way — but, it was not nearly as elevated as everything else we'd been eating for the last hour-and-a-half. It seemed a bit of an afterthought. And, after everything else, it was just way too bready and heavy. A crème brûlée or maybe a little dark-fruit tart would have worked better. But, these are quibbles. Recommended!!!
