Excellent all around. Three waitstaff were running to serve and they did an amazing job. They never seemed rushed even though we could see they were. That’s how to run a restaurant! Very professional.
Great little gem just off Yonge Street. Easy access from Subway at Summerhill.
Excellent food in a friendly setting with excellent service.
Everything was perfect. Our server was amazing!
Hidden gem with great food and great service. Really enjoyed dining there with a friend but would also work for a romantic dinner.
The food was excellent. However they could not have squeezed more tables in if they tried. I was uncomfortable with the lack of social distancing. I will not be back until they either reduce their capacity or the pandemic is history.
Unfortunately the place is too dark for my mostly blind husband
Food is really good Tuna excellent
Service was chaotic main course came before I finished my salad the plate was still on the table so I didn’t finish the salad
Last time I ate at Browns was about 30 years ago and there is a good reason they are still in business.
this is not a hip, cool place with weird combinations of food but is a classy place with excellent food and professional service.
the ambiance is a little old fashion but that is ok too
Excellent food and environment. Service initially was a little slow, but checking covid-related certificates slows things down when many parties are arriving near 7 pm. After we were seated the service was fine. We had the specials, which were great.
We have been to Brownes several times in the last few weeks. The food is always good and often excellent with a focus on well-prepared, top quality, ingredients - taste in adequate (not huge) servings.
As always……fabulous service and food. Frites with aoli is wonderful and tonight we ordered salmon and tuna….both were excellent! Especially with a bottle of Chablis. An amazing restaurant.
Overall everything was great. It was pretty noisy when we arrived at 7:30 & the restaurant was nearly full (I spotted a few empty tables, I assume a concession to the current protocols re: COVID 19). As the restaurant emptied out over the couple hours we were there it became less noisy. They were understaffed, as are most restaurants so while service was a bit slow in the beginning (until it started to empty out), we weren’t surprised and it didn’t bother us since that seems to be the unfortunate situation everywhere today.
Choose your food from menu, not the "specials" of the day. I 5hought it would be a treat to try the fish. Not only was it greasy, full of bones and little taste, but discovered when the cheque came, that it cost almost twice the items off the menu. No coffee or dessert was offered.
Great food and great service.
I've eaten here on a number of occasions and I've always felt it's decent fare. Not tonight however.
Salad with smoked duck breast was average but the mushroom pizza was downright blah and massively over-salted. They promised over five types of mushrooms and yet there were just a few shrivelled up little things peppered throughout. The crust was so tough and flavourless that you couldn't even cut it with the steak knife they served to go with it. The final disappointment was the apple crisp which was just a jumble of mush and pretty much flavorless.
The noise level was very high and our clothes stunk when we got home because their kitchen fans are clearly not working properly.
Even though short staffed, the service was friendly and efficient. Food was delicious. Thanks.
It was a very enjoyable dining experience for us. Compliments to the chef, but special mention should go to Conrad who was delightful.
Browne's is one of our favorite restaurants. We're happy to be able to go there now that the pandemic is hopefully receding. Our vaccine status was carefully checked on arrival. Then we enjoyed our grilled salmon dinner at our socially distanced table. The food and service continues to be outstanding.
Our first time visiting this neighbourhood gem. Older crowd obviously are aware of the good food, wine and attentive service. We had the pleasure to be served by Conrad. We’ll definitely return.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Brownes - service was exceptional! Will return soon.
Tables were not socially distanced. We asked to move tables because of this. After we were seated and ordered our food people were seated at the table directly behind us. My chair was literally inches away. We moved to the far end of the table.
Good bistro quality meal. Friendly, attentive, efficient service.
We had a reservation for a Sunday evening; when we arrived, the waiter told us that he was alone and that there might be some delay in service. On the contrary, he did an excellent and very professional job going between the patio and the dining room.We didn't wait for anything.
The food was very good and arrived hot--it was one of the best restaurant meals I think I've had in a long time.
I will definitely be back.
Second time at Brownes Bistro and the food quality and services are still quality!
Great family restaurant with top quality food! This may be our new regular place!
The staff made us feel welcome from the start. The distancing was properly managed and the food delicious.
Wonderful! Food, service and atmosphere- will definitely return!
Great food, wonderful service
The food was delicious. There was quite a wait for our mains but it was worth it.
Our server was earnest in his fedire to tske care of us.
Once again great food and terrific service. A local gem.
I had the salad special for the day to start- prosciutto, strawberries, arugula, Parmesan. It was delicious. My main was the steak and fries. Also delicious.
Our server was phenomenal. Very attentive and helpful.
We had a great tine. Rhanks
Service was better than last time. Escargots excellent as always. My husband’s steak was great. Mussels OK and my Grilled lemongrass curry shrimps and scallops did not come grilled and the curry was too overpowering. Did not taste any lemongrass at all. So was disappointed. Crust of the pizza was too hard. Could hardly cut into it. Noise level was also a tad loud.
Great variety of food!
We had a fabulous dinner. Conrad our waiter was helpful and did an outstanding job. The food was delicious. We tried the lamb and pasta with shrimps. I wouldn’t hesitate to book again.
An absolutely wonderful evening, everything was above normal expectations, definitely will put this restaurant on our “special” list.
It was a nice atmosphere for our celebration of my husbands birthday. Thank you to the staff for the birthday brownies!
It’s my first visit to this restaurant. It offers a range of choices all with reasonable prices. We opt for the daily specials. The food was excellent. Fresh and tasty. I will definitely go back.
I had a great time and the food was excellent! The special cocktail of the night was also amazing.
Service was very slow but with the first day of reopening indoors they were slammed. Food was outstanding as usual. Our server was nice but has his hands full. He comp two glasses of wine which was a nice gesture for our patience. Food is always fabulous. Will definitely go back!
Food was excellent. Very busy. Cheesecake was dry and could be improved. Will be back.
