The Chef is extremely creative with an intention to detail. The Mushroom & Leek Galette had a robust flavor and beautifully presented. The Pork pot pie was tender and a treat for the Winter night menu. Always a winner in Haddonfield

Perhaps for a party of two Who are not very hungry -for six people the small plates were not enough -especially when with it was suggested that we order them and share -cutting up those tiny plates into six pieces was actually silly...

Meal was very disappointing. The chicken was raw, the tuna sliced too thick on a very tough potato pancake, the chicken pot pie soupy, and EVERYTHING was a ridiculously small portion that charged as much as a FULL plate and was not really shareable at all. Only highlight was our waitress who was friendly and awesome.

The food took almost an hour for the first plate to come out for a 6:45 reservation on a Saturday night. Quality was ok but not exceptional. Small plates are very limited portions— priced like half an entree but sized like a third to a quarter of an entree. Still hungry when we left and we are not “large portion eaters”— usually order a salad and appetizer when I go to dinner.

Loved this place! The food was amazing!!! The space was very inviting and the decor was very nice as well. The husband and wife owners were so sweet . I definitely recommend to anyone looking to try a lot of amazing food. We were 4 people and ordered a ton of food- all shared and got to try a lot of different and interesting foods. This would be great for just a few people or a big group!

Went on NYE and the service was so slow that we left after two plates. The server was apologetic and nice but to have sat at the table for 2.5 hours and had about 8 bites of food was definitely what we thought we were getting when we decided to go there. The atmosphere is great, the food is okay, the portions are extemely small, the price is a little high and the kitchen is way too slow.

Almost every dish a winner. Especially loved the roasted beets - they are firmer than most other restaurants, and have a terrific maple glaze. The tea smoked duck a perennial favorite.

Went here for lunch with a friend and daughter -- we were the only customers and I truly can't understand why. The restaurant is hidden in the little mall of Haddonfield and really nicely decorated. Our waitress was very helpful since we had not been here before and she answered our questions and never rushed us at all! Our food was great -- one guest had the manhattan clam chowder, she said it was the best she has ever had. For our meals we had the cheese and chauterie plate -- it had lots of italian meats, homemade mustard, apple butter, wonderful bread and cheeses; more than enough for 2 people! Our other plates were the lobster crab rondure, these were absolutely great, lots of lobster and crab in them and the sauce was not overbearing at all; the other plate was the mushroom and leek tart -- again done perfectly. Of course we had dessert since this was a pre-Christmas lunch -- a cream puff, panna cotta with raspberry sauce, and salted chocolate brownie -- all were great!! We will definitely return and truly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I recently dined at Braise. It was a last minute decision and we had no idea what to expect. Our food was delicious, fresh, innovative and fun. We tried some new dishes such as the wild boar Osso bucco, and a lip smacking dessert called Elvis Presly cake. it was a poundcake base with peanut butter and crispy bacon. A little scoop of ice cream topped it off. So yummy. The beet salad was really good as well.
Criticism would be that many things were served with an egg of some type. I know this is the new way of adding protein to a dish, but for my taste my choices would have widened had only one dish contained an egg and not 4 dishes. I think the soup sounded very interesting, but did not try because of the poached egg. I do hope that this restaurant flies. Mark is a talented chef. We will return. And I have to try the brussel sprouts with duck bacon.

The service at Braise is wonderful and the restaurant itself has a lot of potential. That is pretty much the only positive thing I have to say. The food was pretty awful. We had the tuna latke, which was a horrible pairing. The latke was dense and not seasoned well and the tuna was not fresh at all. The crab and avocado salad was also not fresh and tasted terribly. The crab was soggy and stringy. The shrimp and grits had zero flavor and was missing seasoning across the board. The one good plate that we did have was the octopus- which was surprisingly delicious after all of the disappointments from the other dishes. The restaurant market is tough here in South Jersey because there is fantastic food everywhere. So, it is no surprise that on a Saturday night the restaurant was empty.

After reading all the great reviews on Facebook, I would say we were pretty disappointed. The grilled octopus tasted like imitation octopus (if there’s such a thing) and the cheese & charcuterie for $22 was such a rip off. The small board was 3/4 empty. I understand small plates, but I don’t understand charging the same as any other place with big plates. I had a huge charcuterie board at a beach resort for $21.
Total let down! Totally thumbs down!

Wanted a reasonably-priced BYO that wasn't Italian to grab dinner before a show at the Ritz in Haddon Twp. This was a great spot for that. Inexpensive small plates - three of them plus two tiny desserts for under $40 before tip. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Would go again.

We all had such a great meal. We were 5 people and we ordered 10 plates to start . We loved it all then we added another 3 plates of our favorites. Perfection. The service was great. They brought 2-3 plates out at a time. So much fun to dine this way.

Small plates were very good. The feeling I got from looking at the restaurant website didn’t translate into the dining experience I expected. The server looked overwhelmed having to wear many hats by seating, serving and clearing tables by herself. She did the best she could but you could feel her stress.

The restaurant in my opinion is very dark I would suggest either a major makeover or change locations.
