A cozy space with great food. They have a great selection of cocktails too.
Great place, but could only book table for 90 mins
The cheddar cheese beignets were heavenly. Worth the visit just for those!
Food was excellent as always, service top notch. Great anniversary experience.
The food and service are always amazing. I like the recent updates to the menu for the most part. New plating was lovely. One of the best newer restaurants in Willow Glen. We’ll continue to support and follow the journey of this unique gem!
The food was terrible. The pb&j bone marrow was not good. We ordered the Carbonara and it was horrible. It was like the restaurant was trying to make cool twists on classic food.
Love the food and service. you wont be disappointed.
Braise Willow Glen is so cute and such a great place to enjoy brunch. I have only visited for brunch but will have to try for lunch and dinner soon and I will update my review once I do.
I was so excited to see Chilaquiles on the menu with the option to add Chorizo! Can't get much better than that! A regular of Braise was walking by as we sat down and he highly recommended the Cheddar Beignets and he wasn't wrong, they were delicious! My friends ordered the breakfast burrito and Farro Verde Fried Rice. All of our food was fantastic and our server was amazing!
Can't wait to try Braise again!
First time there. Impressed by creative vegan friendly dishes.
Amazing food and service - will definitely go back! Everything we had was great - whole fish, pasta , fried chicken, papaya salad, cheese plate, cheddar beignets- all outstanding!
Juan was very personable and we had a great experience. Food and drinks were amazing as well. Cyrus is a great bartender. He is right on point with his recommendations
Will definitely come back again
Nice outdoor setup. Good services. Fun choice on breakfast Bruch menu. Would definitely want to try the dinner also.
Unique dishes masterfully prepared. After our first visit, Braise is now our favorite!
Everything was excellent juan was an awesome server and the food was perfect. Definitely going back as soon as I can for the pb and j!
Really delicious food and drinks, the staff was wonderful, super accommodating. They let us sneak into our reservation a little early. We had a great time and will definitely be back!
No heat lamps. Cold!!
It was a beautiful day and the customer service was excellent!
Outside seating, a little noisy due to traffic. Food was awesome, had the pancakes, bacon and the Yogurt Parfait. Definitely should go for brunch on Sundays or dinner on the other days!
We had a great dinner with fun drinks and delicious foor. Everyone was outstanding.
Braise is such a great restaurant, the food is outstanding, and the menu changes frequently while also keeping some favorites available consistently. (cheddar beignets and fried chicken, oh yes!) This time we had brunch. The buttermilk pancakes were outstanding also loved the egg and sausage sandwich, delicious!
Amazing!! We ordered the cheddar beignets, pasta bolognese and fried chicken and they were both incredible. Highly recommended!
Never been to this place before, trying to celebrate our early Valentines. Made this reservation. Got there. Had to seat by the streets, where cars passing by. Was raining. Tho there was a table outside the restaurant, not the side street. People 2 tables. One person with stroller was sitting there with no reservation. Another person sitting on the other table with the dog, not a customers. We end up sitting by the street side, with the heater. Husband and I got up and left, went somewhere else. Pretty sad how customer service, host could not prioritize people with reservations. I could understand that we eat outside, but wow poor help.
Braise us is our favorite restaurant.
Food was creative, fresh and service outstanding. Chef graciously accommodated a special dietary request. Unique and fun drink menu.
Excellent food and specialty drinks. Great service.
Thx great experience
Braise is mine and my husbands’s favorite spot. The food, cocktails, and service are always great and the music is always on point!
Loved the special “breakfast for dinner” menu! It was such a special treat to get out and have a date night. Every dish was tasty and filled with fresh ingredients.
Great fresh food. Service was slow, from ordering to even receiving our check took a while. But we’ll
be back and hope that improves.
So far I haven’t had a meal I didn’t like! Great variety. Becoming one of our usual spots!
The PB&J is the reason to come to this place. Don't leave without trying it.
To be fair to the Ambience and Noise Level rating, with COVID rules here in CA we were sitting outside on the sidewalk which is not normal.
God tier; amazing service, cocktails, gnocchi, and the flan was out of this world!
Braise is always great, it’s one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always great and the fried chicken is one of our favorites, can’t go wrong with anything.
They made us feel safe by taking temperatures, spreading us out at tables (outside). The cocktails were fantastic. Food was good-nothing horrible, nothing to write home about. Would recommend for cocktails and apps or desserts.
What great dining during COVID 19 ... we started off with a lemon drop martini ... we asked for two straws as we wanted to try it ... what a surprise when the drink was delivered the bartender put the drink in two glasses! Drink went down very smoothly... ordered their delicious cheese beignets and PB the steak prepared to perfection and the pork chop(a bit spicy for our taste; we scraped the topping;)we finished off with the pot de creme and fresh pressed coffee! We were celebrating a birthday and one dessert was on the house ... much appreciated! What made the night was our exceptional waiter(sorry I cannot remember his name) ... we will definitely be back ... BFH
So glad we discovered Braise. Saw them featured on PBS's "Check Please - Bay Area". So good. We highly recommend.
Delicious food, unique take on some items. Definitely coming back!
Amazing food, drinks, and service. Loved the outside set up as well.
