Our server Craig was excellent. He recommended a brilliant glass of Cab that was worth the hefty price tag. The California Onion soup was a delicious as imagined. The only underwhelming dish was our burger...the concept is interesting, but it was a bit too decadent (and perhaps overcooked) for our tastes. Still, an excellent early date night, and we even got ourselves a piece of pecan pie to take home. If you haven't dined on Brasserie SLO's Fig Tree Patio yet, you should...it's lovely! :)

Beautiful, modern atmosphere with well executed food that has commitment to local sources and sustainability. Better integration and knowledge transfer between front and back of house would have elevated experience to something more special.

The Brasserie at Hotel Cerro has been a great experience both times that I've been. The Rib Eye was incredible. The flat breads are incredible. THe knife and fork burger was an indulgence that was very worth it. I'm going to go back and try other things that I haven't yet tasted. Excellent food and presentation. It's truly a treat to experience fine dining in downtown SLO. I recommend the back patio dining area.

Had been dying to try Brasserie SLO since it opened, and the experience was worth the wait! We split the grilled octopus, mushroom soup, and sautéed scallops (all perfectly prepared, and gorgeous on their plates). Best part was the ambience on the Fig Tree Patio! Had so much fun, we sampled the dessert pastries (also brilliant). We will definitely be back!

Everything was excellent. The fried calamari was cooked perfectly and tender. The mushroom soup was like velvet with amazing flavors. The scallops were incredibly tender. The vegetable risotto was flavorful and cooked to perfection. The chicken on top of the beans was fall off the bone tender and so flavorful. Our desserts were rich and full of flavor. The chocolate tart was thick and had a deep chocolate flavor. The espresso Crema brûlée was smooth with a perfect crisp top that tasted like a an Italian espresso.

Nice outdoor dining setup! We sat in the back patio which was nicely set up and felt like it's always been there, not just for pandemic outdoor dining. Beautiful plants around in a warm atmosphere with tables spaced out appropriately. Though it was a chilly night, we didn't feel it with the multiple fire pits and large umbrellas around. The mushroom soup was amazing. Even one in our group claimed it was the best soup she ever tasted!

Great atmosphere, food and service, but pricey. Portions could be a little bigger for the price....or, you know, lower the prices a bit. Great place for a special occasion, but too expensive to frequent often.

Our overall experience was good. Our family was visiting our daughter who is attending Cal Poly SLO. We were celebrating our son's birthday at the Brasserie. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was generally very good. However, I was surprise to see their hamburgers were $30 a la carte. The same hamburger was only $15 at lunch time. Our kids said the burgers were amazing, but I really don't think any hamburger is worth $30. After all, it's just a hamburger.

We told the waiter that we were celebrating my son's birthday, so he asked if he could bring us dessert. I said "that would be nice, just vanilla ice cream with a candle would be fine". When the bill arrived, image my surprise when I saw that the waiter had charged us for the ice cream. Although it was only $5, I found it tacky that the restaurant charged me for a birthday dessert. I guess they figured if I was willing pay $30 for a hamburger, then I was dumb enough to pay for a birthday dessert.

Jokes on me.

Wonderful vibe in slo with well prepared/tasty dishes. Nice wine by the glass selections and better wine list accompanies a somewhat sparse menu. Caesar salad, seared scallops and salmon were excellent. The downside was an undersized wobbly table and the price. I would return if the menu expands. And if the size of the table does as well

The only complaint I have is that I felt the menu was super limited and I would have liked to have had more options. The atmosphere was delightful and the butter at brunch was way too good. I brought my child and even though they do not have a kids’ menu, it was fine because they had something he could eat. The server came out and brought him a cookie afterward and he loved that. Thanks for making my chunk feel special.

Sunday brunch service was outstanding and I love the atmosphere on both the front and back patios. The brunch salad was average at best, overdressed, and small portion. Side potatoes were okay. Looking at the pomme frites they are likely the better option. Duck confit with eggs was solid and flavorful and would order it again.

Extremely overpriced for the quality. Much better choices in downtown SLO. $52 for a ribeye. That’s known as the poor man’s cut of steak. They are out of touch with reality.

Story was our waitress and she was very good. I had a salad with fig, and a small pumpkin risotto. Both were really good. My husband had pork and said it was pretty good. I had two old fashions and my husband had to Bombay Sapphire gin on the rocks. Love the ambience. My only complaint was the bread puddingWhich was the special of the night. It was on the pricey side but I took some home and had it and it was just OK.

The hotel and restaurant is beautiful and our waitress, Storey, was great.
It was windy but the dinner was worth it. Will recommend to friends - already
have posted on FB about it. My only complaint is that we decided to get a slice
of pumpkin pie at the end of our meal and we waited a longggggggggggggg time
for it and later regretted adding the pie. Not sure what happened! Maybe waited
30 min? longer than our regular meal!!!!!!!!!!
