The food and service is always great! Make sure to order the pancake!
Food was incredible for taste and some/most was warm, not hot. Bloodies were really well prepared. The restaurant was not that busy for our noon reservation but the service was off. Missed drinks and coffee, well even missed an entre for our table of 8.
I would go back for the food. Service needs a shot in the arm.
Great spot, first time there. Everything from the drinks, to apps, to entrees, was delicious. Will definitely be back.
The food and drinks were amazing! Waitress was helpful in helping us pick out Gluten Free options.
What a wonderful place! Great food, drinks, and atmosphere only to be outdone by the fantastic service. We can't wait to come back!
Took my mother here for her birthday. Drinks were fantastic is and the food was phenomenal. Do yourself a favor and get the bread with various spreads, and the fried wings. Also, the flan was terrific.
Delicious meal! Skirt steak and beef shank excellent as were the sides. Drink recommendations by server spot on. Highly recommend
Good Mexican BBQ, friendly service, moderate noise level in a relaxed open wood accented dining room. We had shrimp, skirt steak and lamb chops all cooked on the open flame to perfection.
I love brunch at La Brasa, especially the avocado toast with a poached egg. It was an easy spot to meet friends on Sunday with plenty of street parking and a low key atmosphere. Everyone ordered something different and loved their meals. Service was fantastic.
Everything was delicious. Great ambient, very cozy and warm. Amazing meat on the grill (we took the T-bone) and very tasty vegetables dishes.
Great vibe, friendly waiter, good service. They have a couple of very expensive steaks on the menu that they need to learn how to cook. Unlike my companions who went for the more expensive cuts I had the flank steak and it was excellent. I guess the lesson here is if you want a perfectly grilled T-bone go to a steak place. That being said - the rest of the food was creative and very good. I would definitely go back and would recommend it for a fun evening out.
it’s not mexican food at all, also maybe $$. expensive entrees but a lot of starters... still 2/12 are mexican 👀
Birthdays I. Wes here are great
If you love flan! People who work here are friendly and real, and the food was great! We split a special dish and the side dishes were delicious ! Brussels sprouts , beets, sweet potato... lovely winter food
Steak was still mooing server brushed me off. He seemed overworked. Chicken wings are basic. Good service goes miles, work on it.
Just ok food
The ambience is pleasing but the food was very underwhelming. Good place to hang out for a drink not so much for dinner
I went there for New Year's Eve and I made a reservation but when we got there, the table was not ready. We had to wait for about 15 minutes.
As a token of excuse, they served some appetizers on the house. Service could have been better.
Other than that, the ambience is good.
We arrived early for our reservation, had a seat at the bar. We were quickly served drinks. Drink menu has some unusual offerings that were fantastic. Service is top notch . I had the sirlon which was cooked perfectly. Entrees are not offered with sides.
The service was bad despite the restaurant being almost completely empty. We had the sweet potato with goat cheese, the fried potatoes, the deviled egg crisps, the grilled shrimp and the duck leg. The dishes were either completely bland or extremely salty. Definitely not worth the money. The whole thing feels and tastes like compromise. Careful if ordering soda as they don't do refills (and don't tell you) but serve you a glass full of ice with three drops of soda for $2.
Awesome as always
Delicious and unique!
Great Somerville restaurant... love everything about this place. Terrific atmosphere and the food is always excellent
A unique experience. The aroma from the stone oven greets you, foreshadowing delicious food to come. A wonderful blend of elegant simplicity with rustic overtones. You can really taste the fresh vegetables (broccolini, leeks, carrots) which I'm told come from local farms. The slow cooked barbecue brisket melts in your mouth. Perhaps the Swiss chard dish was their best (several of my colleagues had it). After having a scrumptious dinner, we went back for brunch (I can't say that I ever went to the same restaurant two days in a row); french toast was a generous portion, had a beautiful presentation, and was super tasty. Nice drink menu. Nice oyster bar. Reasonably priced. Service was extremely attentive. The waiters had sincere smiles on their face. It really seems like they were happy to serve us. We are definitely going back!
The server was inattentive and slow.
She recommended the duck entree and it was very salty.
If you have not tried the La Brasa chicken wings, you are missing out! Everything is tasty and the cocktails are creative and delicious.
Everything was great, except for the music, and I love The Cult. It was way too loud, and way way too raucous. Good thing I took my spouse, we were able to communicate telepathically.
We ordered a bread ‘n spread and four starters and split them between two people, which was plenty of food. Each plate brought out was better than the last. I would definitely recommend La Brasa.
Great service! Food is very flavorful and creative. Nice hip ambience and great playlist of music in background. Perfect for date or large gathering.
The food was just OK and the value just not good. It's a really nice space, with good 90's music, so that was fun, but in general, the cuisine was disapointing.
Great place to have drinks and have great food as well. You gotta go for the meat part of the menu.
The service was fantastic...food was very good, especially the wedge salad and the pate’. Plenty to choose from and the space is beautiful.
Second trip to LaBrasas and it does not disappoint. From the wait staff to the chefs, everything was handled with professional standards. I love this menu.
Good, solid, simple, and delicously amazing wood fired cuisine. Well executed and beautifully well made apps, entrees, and desserts. Great for a group tapas style outing.
We love La Brasa--the atmosphere, the food is wonderful!
The food is delicious -- appetizers creative and yummy; the wood grilled options were outstanding. The downside for us was the noise level -- it's definitely a lively place, but it's very difficult to have a conversation across the table -- you need to lean forward to talk and it was almost impossible to hear what our server was telling us.
Service friendly but intermittently inattentive. Kitchen efficient and food good. Nice wine choices.
f`I love the Sunday brunch so much I hate to miss it. The baked pancakes with maple butter, bananas and almonds is one of the great delights of the entire Bosotn area. Served weith a side of bacon, it's out of this world. And so is the friendly, accommodating service. The servers at La Brasa are really among the best in the whole Boston area. Defoinitely "worth the drive" (and easy parking on Sundays.
The service was very good. Our waitress was attentive and came to ask if we had questions a couple times. After the food came, she came back and checked on us a couple time. The special was salmon and it was seared perfectly. The Vermont lamb with farro was tasty and with a lot of meat. I would definitely return and try their other dishes.
Had an AMAZING special occasion dinner here.
If you are willing dine early like I am, it is not busy and they do the most incredible dollar oysters. Cocktails are amazing. Bread is amazing.
We also got steak and chicken from the wood grill and they were both excellent. For dessert we had the special— tres leches cake, a favorite of mine. And theirs was truly the best I’ve ever had, served with high quality yummy coffee.
Food - fantastic! Waitstaff very attentive.
