First off the venue is way overpriced for the level of food served. 4 guests but 3 did not like the food the other had mussels which were ok. Worst Caesar salad. Scallops over cooked and salty… Bouillabaisse terribly and one mussel not opened which means it couldn’t be eaten. Beef Bouguignon was so so. When we called asking about corkage was told it was $35 waitress clarified that if we bought one bottle we would get zero corkage on one we brought. Too late cause we didn’t bring…$30 corkage for basically a glorified coffee shop experience outrageous. Had to ask for bread/butter 3 times!!! Servers should be better dressed for the price of the food. Work shirts and jeans not ok
Oh yea straw that broke the camels back. We told waitress we were celebrating 2 birthdays. We got zero complimentary desserts…not even one to share!!!
Will not be back and we are locals.
$100 per person for dinner…such a waste of money

Beautiful French restaurant in downtown SLO, with outside street patio. Went for relaxing lunch during Thanksgiving weekend and loved the spot. Close to downtown shopping but on side street so not to crazy. They serve Brunch more than lunch but everything was delicious.

Have been there for brunch several times. Food quality still good but portion sizes noteably smaller for same price and plating not as conscious/ attentive to detail. I have to assume a new chef? Prices are high, considering these changes

Fantasia. We went for their Thanksgiving dinner. My fiancé got their turkey dinner and he loves it. The plate was huge! I got the salmon and the skin was wonderfully crispy and extremely flavorful. My fiancé moved the margarita. It had black salt in the rim and was spicy. I had a Pinot Noir that was delicious. We sat outside and watched the stars. The pre-fixed menu was about $65 a person.

We had Thanksgiving Dinner at The Brasserie. The Prix Fixe menu was excellent, my kids and I each ordered a different entree and dessert. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the restaurant was quiet but lovely.
I felt that although it was a little pricey, it was a good deal. The portions were very generous and we had leftovers.
We would highly recommend it and will likely go back again next year.

Service was decent, but the dirty plates kept piling up and nothing was picked up, despite not having any more room on table. We had to move plates to empty table next to us. Truffled goat cheese and Mushroom was very good, the steak frites was not very good, especially considering its $46. Fries were soggy and steak was very tough and fibrous with a very smoked flavor.

The atmosphere and waiters were excellent! The food quality was good but way overpriced. Very small portions. The corkage fee is $30.00 but we were offered to purchase their wine, waiving the fee. They offer a wide range of wines, but still at a 300% markup.

We will go back for drinks and sit in their outside patio, which is warm and cozy. Their cocktails have fun names and were very good.

Neighborhood gem on a quiet side street in SLO. Valet parking and cool vibe for multiple eating and drinking occasions. We sat out on the patio, heaters made it cozy. Excellent and friendly waitstaff and sommelier, started with signature cocktails, duck confit (AMAZING), split a salad and each got French onion soup, not your ordinary bland broth, this had red wine reduction and was the best I’ve ever had. My husband had the mussels which had a creamy sauce, also fabulous with plenty of crunchy bread. We had a lovely local wine and finished with the cheesecake without crust, delish! The whole evening was really nice and we will try the hotel next time we are there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

My wife and I are always looking for restaurants serving French cuisine. So we gave Brasserie SLO at try. The service was very good, and the wine list was excellent. The food just okay, and bit pricey for the quality (aka 'value'). I was excited to try the French onion soup, but the onions and broth quality were lacking. It reminded me of commercial French onion soup from SYSCO, a restaurant supply company. If this is the case, it would be nice if they would make their soup base in-house. There is nothing better than a freshly made caramelized onion soup! Also, it would be good if they offered a mineral water, not just soda water from the bar. We'll return in the future to try other menu selections.

The food and presentation was very good, but the service was sub-par. We also sat on the patio and they did not have any heat lamps which made the dining experience a little uncomfortable.

Our server Eziquel was outstanding! The girl who seated us was a bit clueless but the actual service of everyone else was fantastic! The food was good but really expensive for what you got. The drinks are over priced and not worth the money with the exception of the blood orange margarita. Still overpriced but the recipe was delicious.

Our waiter Craig was very knowledgeable very friendly he did an excellent job he comped our desserts because our food all came out at once instead of salads and then entrées I had short ribs they were a little dry but tender. We ordered the starter which was the flatbread I think it had mushrooms and onions topped with Parmesan arugula and truffle oil was really delicious with our wine.

I had a wonderful dinner here a few months ago and was excited to bring my mom back for her birthday. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing. First the shrimp appetizer was tough and flavorless in addition to not been cleaned very well. Unappetizing. Next, the caesar salad was mediocre and not well seasoned. Then, the much anticipates scallop dish is hard to explain but imagine seared scallops in a sauce of melted Creamsicle!!! The combinations in this dish were NOT a good choice. Finally, the creme brulee and cremant were very enjoyable and the service wonderful. So disappointing and I doubt I would return.

Service was excellent. The scallop dish with black rice and the coconut sauce was one of the best scallop entrees I’ve ever experienced. Cooked perfectly.

Wine list was a tad small and limited.
