We had to wait, standing, about half an hour past our reservation time. The noise level was excessive. One reason for this was the overbooking. It led people who showed up either early or on time to go to the bar, which was also packed. So much so that I couldn't even see whether there was any place to sit down. Whether or not the overbooking was calculated to jack up prices at the bar beyond what they would be in the course of honest business, the company that did the overbooking made the money. This time. From me, not the next time. As in situations in which an airline messes something up and makes people miss their arrival times (and connections), we were after about 25 minutes offered a "free" glass of champagne (one per person). Overall, it was more like we were hurricane victims in some kind of shelter. We got out for under $100 per person because we cut items both because the overbooking made the meal so late and in order to deprive the company of unjust enrichment. The quality of the food was no better but no worse than we had a right to expect at that price. Next time we will use a fraction of the additional time this sh*tshow caused to drive the additional distance to Cafe Provencal. We could hear each other talk without shouting in the car, whereas we could not in the holding cell at Brasserie. I am especially disappointed by this, because I remember Chez Leon in the same space. What happened on what was supposed to be our Valentine's Day (because we both had time-conflicts on the 14th, and I can't imagine this happening when it was under the previous management.

The food we had was as expected very traditional French fare and excellent. The Bibb lettuce salad was a good example: lettuce, parsley and a light vinaigrette. It was of course served in the American style, at the beginning of the meal. When we were there, on a Thursday, it wasn't occupied close to capacity the noise level was very reasonable.

Really cool restaurant. Our table was in the middle of the room on a very busy night, which was our only complaint. On future visits, which we look forward to making, we will ask to be seated off to the side of the room. The service was outstanding, the menu fresh and varied, and the wine list was a good sampling of old-world varietals. Overall, the feel of the restaurant, with a bustling, yet warm vibe, was fresh and upbeat. The French music playing lightly was a nice backdrop for a wonderful, romantic evening.

After hearing a lot about Niche, I was anticipating an opportunity to have a quiet dinner and delicious food. I was underwhelmed. Tight seating, way too much noise. A good piece of trout, nicely presented and overloaded with salt.

On Valentine's day...also the first day of Lent...and a seafood dish prepared with bacon. I guess the owners forgot about Lent because the non meat entress were obviously absent from the menu.

The wait staff...seemed as though they couldn't wait for the table to turn over.

Amazing service - they got my order wrong (ordered coq au vin but got croque madame instead, was probably my bad pronunciation ) - they instantly apologized, offered to get croque madame to go (for free) and got my actual order in 4 minutes.

We had only soup and salad before symphony. It was more than adequate. Wine was excellent also. Onion soup is always there and excellent; cauliflower soup was chicken-broth based, I believe (it could have been beef) and delicious if you weren't looking for vegetarian. The frisee salad is one of our favorites with lardons and warm bacon dressing. Their rolls were warm, fresh and delicious. A pleasant evening. Quiet early. Noisy as it fills and by 7:00.

Wow, Brasserie was an AWESOME experience. My bf and I went for our two year anniversary and the restaurant gave us free champagne, a free dessert, AND a free drink that was a mistake by the bartender!!! We were so thrilled with the service and we were so surprised too! We didn’t realize they would be doing any of that until we got there; they had paid attention to my note on my reservation saying “anniversary” which I didn’t think twice about! Just awesome. Plus the food was amazing, I got the chartreuse, garlic sausage, duck confit and my bf got the beef.

Brasserie by Niche is a quintessential Parisian brasserie, with not a detail missing. The space is utterly charming, and the food is spot-on. Try the Braised Beef! Then on your next visit, try Coq au Vin! And don't skip dessert. I recommend the classic profiteroles and if its on the menu, a fruit tatain. Get both! Furthermore, the service is unsurpassed for warmth and attentiveness. I never miss an opportunity to dine at Brasserie when I'm in town.

Had a reservation at 7:15, had to wait until 7:45 to finally sit.
The waiter took 20 minutes to even take our order and give us the bread.
Way too loud to talk to my gf who was half a foot away from me
The food is quite well priced. I do recommend the braised beef.

All the resturants in the Niche group are great and Brasserie is no exception. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our night there. We had the bistro steak and frites and the roasted chicked all great. The side of macncheese was super creamy and addicting. The chocolate mousse was rich and satisfyingly good. We had several cocktails all great, but it would be hard to pick a favorite. Our waiter and the other staff that came to the table were friendly and knowledgeable. Definate recommend.

Wonderful food a very short walk from the Parkway Hotel. Everything on the menu was interesting and the dishes we had were outstanding - the cassoulet, salmon and the peach profiteroles. Costly but you can control that with what you order - the entrees alone are under $30. (That is, if you can stop yourself from ordering three courses, they all look so good!)

We had a wonderful experience at Brasserie by Niche. Everything we ordered was delicious, and the staff were very attentive. Our food took a little longer than expected to come out, and before we'd even noticed, the manager was at our table to keep us informed and offer wine and dessert to make up for the wait. We really appreciated how on-top-of-it everyone was.

I've dined here several times, and I love this restaurant. I decided to return for NYE 2017. The restaurant was beautifully decorated inside, and we were seated immediately with our reservation. We started with the cauliflower and French onion soups, both of which were warm and delicious. We continued with the braised beef entrée, perfectly tender and very yummy. We also ordered the beef tartare, the one dish I was a bit disappointed with this evening. I realize this is a fairly raw dish to order, but the presentation is usually such that makes it look very appetizing. This evening, it was brought to me as a big, round scoop of raw meat on a plate with crostini around it. Quite unappealing. It did taste good, but the overall appearance did not facilitate my appetite. Unfortunately, I was not able to finish it for this reason.
We continued with the Floating Island dessert, and it was delicious as I remembered, with the light meringue and the rich, custard-like sauce.
Our service was great, very friendly, and the food came out in a very timely manner, even with the full restaurant. I look forward to returning in the future.

We enjoyed steak tartar, cassoulet, beet salad, and onion soup along with a sugar cookie creme brulee. I look forward to returning, and I also appreciate that valet parking is offered.
