We went for brunch and the food was amazing! The bottomless mimosas was such a steal! The service was great! Our server recommended the crab Mac and cheese and it was so good! Highly recommend and will definitely be visiting again shortly!

It was decent. I feel like it could be really great but is missing that special ingredient. Wine list is trash so don’t go there with that in mind. We had the Nola restaurant week menu plus a few starters. Mac and cheese is amazing (but how hard is that). The Brussels where delicious but everything else was fairly mediocre. Oh well. Try it out for your self.

Me, along with six of my wonderful friends, had brunch on Saturday. A couple of us had the bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary's. we ordered the fried pickles as an appetizer, they were so delicious. Thin, crispy and so good.
Everyone ordered food we were able to try each other's orders, everything was absolutely delicious. would have liked to have seen some lunch items on the menu. Not everyone likes breakfast foods. Lauren, our server, was on point.

The oyster toast was delicious. The burgers were very good. The quail dish on the coolinary not so much. Didn’t care for that dish at all. Everything else was good.

We went for Coolinary..wife had a version of shrimp and grits and was quite good. I made the mistake of getting quail...I forgot how tiny a quail is. Really, things on the regular menu looked better. We will try again.

We were on our way to the Queen concert on Aug 20, 2019 but running latter than we liked. we told our waitress and the other person who was with her. She immediately took our food orders and got that going while she came and took our drink orders while the food cooked. Everything came out hot and fresh! Everyone left full and happy and we got out in what I would describe as extremely fast. Thanks Simon and staff. We will be back again when we have more time.

Waiting for 15 minutes after being seated and having to draw the attention of wait staff to come to table is not good. It was at off night. Food always good.

I have been to Brown Butter a few times, I have liked it each time I visited. The food is excellent quality, the burgers are especially fantastic. I think the prices may be a bit higher than some restaurants in a similar range BUT they are consistent, the staff is nice, the restaurant is clean and the food is delicious. I definitely recommend Brown Butter to anyone looking for a place to eat in Mid-City.

There was a table of young women directly behind us who were celebrating something and were very boisterous and disruptive. They needed to be in a separate area!
Other than that it was great.

Seems to have dropped off in recent months, been hit-or-miss last few lunchtime trips. The 'crispy' fried oysters on my sandwich were cold and soggy w/ 3 tiny orphan shards of lettuce- still tasted good. But pretty weak for $15. Not a complete loss... the wings were great, brussels as well. Will definitely be back.

Three of us ate from the Coolinary menu and three ate from the regular brunch menu. It was all very good, as always. The service was impeccable with our waitress going out of her way to accommodate a request for warm milk rather than creamer for his coffee. On the Coolinary menu, biscuits were definitely featured in each course, but they were really delicious biscuits and they were presented differently. The brunch burger was amazing as always, the waffle was perfectly done as was the bacon. Every aspect of our brunch was delicious.

Was quite disappointed with this place. They seem to be trying some sort of Southern-Soul-Korean fusion and it just doesn't work. Bland collard greens on a generic chicken sandwich. Unfermented kimchee (oxymoron?) on burger. What can I say?

Great food and service! Was running a little late and the restaurant held our table in the middle of the brunch crowd. Very impressed with the flavor and price.

Brunch was delicious. There were so many good options, it was hard to choose and we ended up splitting multiple things. It was all reasonably priced and the service was amazing.

While the food was good and the service was very good, hey were out of a few things--things that we first ordered. Their response to that though was very professional and I would recommend them .

Lived up to the hype. Food was stupid good, service was perfect blend of attentive but not obsessive. Value was rediculous, they need to raise prices at least 15% right now. Only negative is the location. BB needs to have a nice, free standing, quaint locale just for them. They are far too good to languish in a strip mall end cap. We will be back again and again!!!
