House wine was a good value, food was delicious. I wish they sold their bread, I would definitely purchase their baguettes.

The food was delicious. The noise level was perfect for catching up with a friend easily. You honored my friend's celebration of 20 years as a priest by bringing champaign and a dessert...wow! That was impressive. Erin was a wonderful server. Kind, attentive but not overly attentive. I would definitely recommend your restaurant. Thank you.

Food is great. The goat cheese tart appetizer is entree size, and delicious. Very rich and creamy. Waitstaff are good; just not enough of them. Long waits for requests and food; but friendly. Very, very noisy. Needs something to soften the din.

An evening of French comfort food at Brasserie follows a simple and proper mantra: Take great ingredients, treat them with respect and classic techniques, and serve them in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Such is the success of this approach, Brasserie has become one of the few places that I am sure to order the chicken (and you'd be remiss if you skipped). Ultimately, I'd love to see a little more variation in the menu (and how about the inclusion of a warm foie gras+lardon appetizer), but cannot complain. When you know you want that special something, Brasserie delivers.

The steak frite was delicious. The steak, a little on the rare side of medium-rare. The cold almond soup was very tasty and refreshing for a warm evening. The trout tasted wild, not farm-raised. Very nice atmosphere, young and slightly hip.

It was pouring. We came to Brasserie for the food first, valet second. The valet boys were told not to venture out, so I had to park. I am 77 and my passengers are mid 80s. They got drenched, I was drenched. It made for a wet, unpleasant evening. Never again in the rain!

We had such a wonderful time! The food was absolutely incredible - and the fantastic service really enhanced the entire experience.
We went with a group of friends and we made sure everyone ordered something different (so we could try a little bit of everything). The wine list is AWESOME! Standouts for starters were the cheese puffs, chicken liver pate, and escargot. For entrees, my highlights were the roasted chicken (so amazing) and the trout. For dessert, my favorites were the floating island and strawberry/lime Alaska.
Overall we had a wonderful experience. Definitely planning to return in the future.

My family were all very impressed with the service, food, and atmosphere. It was a family event which was greatly enhanced by the well trained and friendly staff. By consensus, it was the best tasting food and overall meal we have had to date. We asked for recommendations on the wine and all of the pairings enriched the taste of our entrees. However the best of all came last. The floating island carried us away to a better state of mind.

Fantastic experience for start to finish. Service was prompt and not pushy and we were able to enjoy the meal at a relaxed pace. A more European dining experience.

I went there for a special occasion and this was mentioned and indeed was made to feel special. Much appreciated!

I was surprised the restaurant was very friendly and inviting. The foie gra was unbelievable!! I would return just to enjoy that. French onion was really different, very thick sauce, flavor was very mild, I have had better. Wine selection is very nice, many lovely ones to choose from. The service was excellent, he was on top of everything, right there when I needed him. Overall I definitely would return for a luscious meal.

A friend and I dined here last night and enjoyed a delicious meal and great service from Zack. You have to try the gougeres as they were outstanding. The frisee salad and trout almondine were excellent and my friend loved her mussels. The house made bread was superb. I’d love to dine here again the next time I’m in St. Louis and highly recommend it for any occasion.

Brasserie is one of our favorite restaurants and we chose it for our 30th anniversary dinner.
We love the French ambiance and the food is always stellar. We planned on a leisurely meal, and when our escargot took a while, we weren't bothered. Our wonderful waiter Cory came over to apologize about a mix-up in the kitchen, and offered to comp the escargot. Everyone that came over wished us a happy anniversary. We also were served additional wine, and when we declined a complimentary dessert, our server brought us two glasses of champagne. It's easy to see why Brasserie is such a successful restaurant. Wonderful food and exemplary service. Kudos to everyone there.

We dined here on a cross country road trip guided only by Google and proximity to our hotel. What we found was a delightfully French spot with a grown-up crowd and authentic food. Close your eyes and you're dining in a Paris bistro. The steak frites were perfect- well seasoned, crusted exterior, pink in the middle, beautiful bearnaise and crisp shoestring potatoes. Salads are fresh, tender and thoughtfully dressed. Deserts are rich but not overly sweet; our clafoutis was served with a sweetened fresh cheese and perfectly poached rhubarb - unusual and delicious.The only drawback was what we thought was a rather odd steak tartare which the server kindly took off our bill. All in all, an unexpected treat!
