Food was delicious. Decent outdoor seating area, but could be improved. Restaurant has a lot of potential to be really special.

A great combination of sensations!

Despite the initial arrival of a white wine when I had ordered red, the service was efficient & professional. We ordered the garlic fries (along with nearly everyone else, it appeared) and “Mexican street corn” for starters: both tasty openers. Our main plates were the seared salmon, which was excellently prepared, and the Semolina Gnudi which.was.amazing—son rich in multi-level flavor!

At 10pm, to the shock of some & the delight of all, the long aisle transformed into a performance runway for HEIST drag queens. This made for a surprisingly effective catwalk for these highly interactive divas.

The historic character of the building sets a rich tone, with preserved details to draw the eye, punctuated by the pervasive (and subtly exaggerated) owl motif. There’s something slightly off with the overall aesthetic —the super high ceilings should perhaps be balanced by substantial mid-level lighting, which would also warm up the unappealing white-gray pallor—and I’m not a fan of the drapes hiding the views from the breathtakingly enormous windows.

Our experience at Branch was highly enjoyable, and the meal was well worth its ticket.

Our waitress must have come to our table about ten times. We felt a little annoyed. Food was OK but a little pricey. Very noisy inside. I doubt we will go back.

This was my first time to visit for brunch....the food was outstanding...from the lemon and cinnamon donuts to the eggs benedict and mimosas. The brunch menu included some unique options and traditional favorites.

We had a great experience at Branch - we sat outside and Shane took care of the 4 of us. He was perfect! Knowledgeable and friendly - service was great! Food was outstanding! Corn and crab fritters = 10! I had the scallops and they were seared and seasoned - very yummy! Salmon was crispy on the outside moist inside and the burger+garlic fries were delicious too! Bottle of wine and cocktails enjoyed by all too! Try the Clara Bigsby - great citrus gin patio drink! I recommend checking it out - we will be back!

Superb meal. Verlasso salmon was a spectacular dish, easily the best preparation I've had in a long time. Charred beets with quark were also a standout. Looking forward to returning and trying more of the menu items.

We enjoyed the new outdoor patio. The drinks were delicious. The food was good. One of our party really enjoyed the salmon. The hot chicken sandwiches were fine. The summer squash ragu was new and interesting. I really liked the tomato, zucchini, and walnut combination. More smokey than that I expected. Would be good with some bread to dip.

Service was superb ! Relaxed, easy pace, did not feel limited in the amount of time we should spend there. Advice somewhat followed as to menu -- again, server knew her stuff. I would return based on the server we had & the menu. Sorry I can't remember her name.

The scallops were served undercooked 2x at which point I just chose to not eat dinner. The chef and/or manager never came to apologize, just the waiters who didn’t seem very sincere. I will not be back.

Booked a table for 2 but ended up sitting at the bar. Had an excellent meal of salmon (outstanding flavors!) and the sea scallops. Shared a side of Mexican corn rice which was fantastic! Decent wine and cocktail list. Ambiance is a bit sterile but nice. Food made up for it - will be back!

Really great spot for outdoor dining -- looks like they have 30 tables or so outside. Lots of choices of food on the menu, from light bites to full dinners. Only one salad, a wedge, which is delicious, but definitely not low-cal! Nice inside space, too.

Very nice chef prepared food. My Cosmo martinis was the smallest I’ve ever seen in my life. They brought my husband’s dinner out quite a bit before mine which is unusual at the price range. Fun young atmosphere and great food!
