A perfect date restaurant, particularly as the weather warms. By the end of the evening, our server felt like a friend. We'll be back.

Our biggest disappoint was that the delivery of the different courses was slow and sporadic. For instance, one of us ordered a salad and that came fairly quickly. Three of us ordered soup and that probably came close to a half and hour later. That was representative of what happened between each course. It even took a noticeable time for the bill to come. On the positive side, the food was delicious when it did come.

Everything good said in the reviews was true! I grew up in STL and wanted to go someplace new but in a favorite place, the Central West End. Food was dynamite, creative, substantial, adventurous but classic. We had this amazingly different walleye dish, the shaved veggie salad and their roasted chicken. Wine by the glass selections very good and they let us taste 2 to find the right one. An extra bonus is parking is free after 7 so no worries there either.

Drinks, food and service all very good. Kitchen was slow to get good out on a not so busy night Waited over 45 minutes for entrees. On a weekday that’s really slow for some scallops.

7:30 reservations and did not get seated until 8:15.
Service was poor. Waiter took forever to bring 1st course and worse for main course. Then trying to pay was terrible

We went to Brasserie for a milestone birthday. The place was packed and loud. The kind of loud where it's hard to hear the person sitting across from you. But if you can live with that, the food is fabulous. We enjoyed the gougeres. My daughter and I both had a burger - delicious - one of the best in town. My wife had the veggie tart, which was baked in a phyllo crust. She loved it. My daughter's friend had the steak and said it was great. We also had several desserts. The chocolate mousse had a strong chocolate flavor. The 'floating island' is a meringue dessert that sits in a caramel/vanilla sauce. You MUST order this treat at least once. It is light and delicious. Highly recommended.

I ordered the vegetarian tart. When it arrived and they smelled the fragrance of the sage and the vegetables together I was extremely excited. However, after two bites I realized it was so salty I could not eat it and had to send it back. The waiter was extremely understanding and replaced it with Trout. That route was flavorless. The brussels sprouts dominated the plate, and I was hoping for something that had a more compatible flavor to go with the trout.
I have been coming to brasserie Since they opened, and, it is the first time I can say I’ve been really disappointed.
I really feel as if the menu needs some creativity.

Great place for any special occasion, the food is great and so is the service. My only complaint is that this place is loud. The tables are squeezed closely together and my girlfriend and I could easily hear the conversation going on at the table next to us.

Dinner was excellent. We were on a tight schedule and the servers were very respectful of our time, even giving us suggestions of cook times for select entrees. The French Onion soup is always tasty and the trout melted in my mouth. Another pleasant evening at a St. Louis classic restaurant.

The overall experience was underwhelming after seeing so many positive reviews. Arrived at the restaurant before the 815p reservation, but wasn't seated until 840. Our server was attentive and listed the specials and even suggested her top3 favs, which we chose two. The meal was just ok, nothing mind blowing. I had the steak and frites- cooked to temp, but the bearnaise was a little stiff. My wife had what she called a fancy pot roast( braised beef, bacon lardons, potato puree and glazed carrots) that was certainly not worth the hefty $$. If I return I will probably try the roasted chicken.

The occasion was the fourth of five dinners with friends as part of a celebration of my wife's birthday. (We're eating at each of Gerard Craft's five St. Louis restaurants.) The food was excellent (as we have come to expect from his venues). The service was good but slow. Our server was excellent.

The restaurant was full and (as is standard practice these days) largely devoid of sound-damping materials, so it was really noisy. Our table was in the middle of the room and conversation was difficult. But even so, the meal was excellent, we really enjoyed ourselves, and would be happy to return.

Excellent food and wine selection in a very comfortable and casual setting. The service was top notch without being overboard or too formal. We celebrated my father's 78th birthday and were provided not just one, but two desserts on the house. It was a lovely evening. I would highly recommend Brasserie by Niche and can't wait to go back again!

My husband and I were excited to try Brasserie and were not disappointed. The service was excellent, and food frivolous. The French onion soup is so amazing, that stands out to me as the hit of the night. I got steak frites for my entree, he got the coq au vin. Both were excellent but the steak was exceptional. My husband said it was the best steak he’s had in St. Louis. We will be back.

Probably my favorite restaurant in St. Louis. Great for all meals and an amazing place to go for a special event. They definitely know how to help recognize if you are visiting for any special occasion. All of their food will make your eyes roll into the back of your head, mine have yet to roll back, I haven't seen anything in about a week.

Had the chicken- the soaked bread in it was amazing. Husband has the braised beef - much like a pot roast. The onion soup is a definite star!!! The floating island was delicious too- a meringue with a custard. Service was impeccable. A bit noisier than I like but overall fantastic. Valets were great too! Super friendly.

Everything about our experience was amazing! The food was decadent, we started with the cheese puffs and the fromage! Both amazing! Everyone had a salad which was delicious and fresh. The French onion soup was mouth watering and to die for! Everyone had something different I had the steak and fries, very good My fiancé had the trout which was delicious. The waitress ended up bringing us a second plate because ours was missing bacon and we didn’t even know it so the entire table got to enjoy the trout plate. My grandfather had the muscles and said they were the best he had ever had. My grandmother had the menu du jour! We had to floating islands they were both very good. All in all everything was amazing. It was a tad bit loud, because we were trying to have a lot of conversation and catch up so it was a little difficult to hear. But everything else was amazing and we will definitely be coming back.
