We craft new and old world style ale(s) and lagers using the finest natural ingredients, and we brew our beers using the mineral rich Sierra mountain spring water from our own artesian lake, 285 feet below the building.

Very good attentive service. We dined outside which was quiet and made conversation easy. The food was tasty and well prepared. The extensive beer selection was top notch. Would dine here again without hesitation. Highly recommended.

Very nice place with great food and drinks. Beers on tap were amazing and I got the flank steak which was cooked perfectly. Very friendly staff as well. Would love to come back again.

It was okay. The fries, for me, were the best thing. My boys got the filet mignon. They were cooked and seasoned perfectly. My braised short ribs with mashed potatoes were bland and flavorless. So I didn’t finish my dish. Our waitress seemed offended at my assessment. My boys also got the 12 flights of beer, each! I they only really liked 2 of them. But, I was still charged for the ones they didn’t like or drink. That should change. So beware. If you’re not completely satisfied with your food or drink, they’ll still charge you for everything. Poor customer service.

Everything was great. I would recommend some sound dampening treatments. There’s a lot of reverberating noise.

The first time I came I sat a the bar and enjoyed some fried chicken and grits. The food was delicious. The bartender (he)was awesome. I came back during the week and sat at a table in a room that was very noisy. My waitress was sweet but it took 45 min to get my desert and check. Which was a lot longer then I waited for my awesome steak dinner. If I go again I don’t think I will sit in that room. This place is awesome so I will be back a third time to see how it goes. I almost forgot to tell you the pretzel is delicious...so is the Filet mignon, jambalaya and the Bloody Mary.

Food was delicious as always. Service was very slow at the bar. Sat with an empty glass for 20 minutes. First server to even approach me at the bar took 15 minutes. But they were gracious and seemed a little overwhelmed. Overall, love the place....just have to be patient during “corona times”.

So happy that Brasserie has re-opened! Food is excellent and menu has additional items on a regular basis. LOVE the Portobello Mushroom fries, pork and kraut, and Basque style mussels! The new beer selection is fabulous with the Pine Top landing in one of my favorites beers of all time! We enjoy sitting at the bar and interacting with Spencer D as he is one of our favorite bar tenders in Reno! Thanks Brasserie!

We had a reservation. The hostess was friendly and greeted us right away. When we got there we didn't like the table and asked if we could be moved. They were very nice and did find us another table. The waitress was so upbeat and really took good care of us. We went for brunch and I have been searching in Reno for chicken and waffles that were like the ones I had at a restaurant in Sebastopol, CA (the only difference was at that restaurant they used a honey jalapeno glaze on the chicken and the syrup had it as well) but the chicken here was just as good a great fine crispy outside and moist inside. We really want to go back for dinner.
