An astoundingly delicious, friendly, unique restaurant in a fine location that is hard to see.
Don't let it stop you from being there. The owner sat with us and chatted. A superb experience.

What a wonderful experience we had at Brazen! It was my wife's birthday and she does not eat gluten. When I made the reservation, there was a "notes" section and I just put (hopefully some gluten free options).

When we arrived, the hosts and servers knew her name, explained all of the GF options AND there was champagne waiting for us our table!!!

Then, each bite that we shared was better than the next, especially the short ribs! And we went back for 2nds on the brussels sprouts.

Great drinks. Staff was amazing, pleasant and fun. We will be back for sure!!!!

Brazen is always good, especially for Sunday brunch and dinner. We were there this past Sunday, and the staff was amazing. We have a 1-year old son and 6-week old daughter. They brought out the food in stages that helped us manage. The chilaquiles were amazing as were waffles and chicken.

The food was exquisite, beautifully presented. Our waiter was very good, but I believe newer at his job, so there were a few gaps that did not ruin the evening, but could have been improved. ie, he was not sure of ingredients and had to go and ask the chef. He also did not recommend what quantities to order. ie we probably could have done with one less dish. The owner/chef was very inclusive of his guest and welcoming. Free shots were given to the tables that sang along with his music choice. Very fun. The only real complaint was that they could do with one less table. I kept getting bumped by the waiters passing me. Again the food was delicious and will definitely go again.

Set reservations for Valentine’s Day. Food was amazing but was given a table right by the entry to the kitchen and bathroom. Not the best location for a table. Especially for the customers who make reservations.

This place is always spot on. The ambience is amazing and the service never fails. It is a bit expensive if you’re drinking with dinner, but the food is delicious and well worth it. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to have dinner.

I've never experienced the kind of service like we had at Brazen!! The owner, Chris, was determined to make my birthday one for the books. So much so, that when we found out they were out of a type of cheese on the menu he left the restaurant on a busy Sat night and drove to find us some. He did admit that it wouldn't be as good as what they can make in house, but he said I was the birthday girl and needed my cheese (even served with a birthday candle haha). I've never heard of that kind of service before!! I cannot thank everyone at Brazen enough! We live in the neighborhood and have been previously to experience the patio in the summer and had a great time then... but it's going to be more on a normal rotation now!! Our group left completely full and 100% happy with everything about our dinning experience :)

My husband and I were so impressed with this place when we went there for a date night on Saturday. Not only was the food fantastic (especially the brussels sprouts and duck confit), but the couple who own the restaurant literally helped hold and soothe our crying baby for over half an hour so we could eat our food! It always blows my mind when people are this kind. We will definitely be back!

Head chef and owner Chris loves creating good food and it shows! A good friend and I dropped in on a low-key Monday and sat at the bar. Jonathan, the bartender, instantly made us feel comfortable. We had several beers, a cider, the mussels, and jerk chicken. I've been here once before, but when Chris comes over and talks about the story behind the chicken, you know you ordered right. Brazen found its soul with the updated menu. Will be back!

Decent. Mediocre food with alright service. Food didn’t have much of a direction and everything was salted way too much. I’d go elsewhere with my money. Bummer.

I expected more. By 830pm they had run out of food on the menu, which is already limited. We had initially gone back in Sept'18, and the menu was still the same on NYE - I was not impressed. Menu needs to change significantly before we go back. This restaurant has so much potential, but we weren't impressed our second time around...especially on NYE.

Incredibly good food. Went for brunch and there was a little for everyone. We were surprised how good the food was and how few people were there. If you want a great brunch spot with no line, go here. We had ramen with duck, chillaquiles, chicken and waffles, deviled eggs, and French toast. We can’t wait go back for a dinner.

We came here for birthday. The signage isn’t lite up and a little confusing. You enter near the back of the building. The food is a shared plate menu, and very complimentary dishes. We had mussels, gnocchi and the beet salad. Delicious, flavorful and full of color. The cocktails are on point and they even sent the dishwasher to grab cranberry juice for our cosmos. Weird they didn’t have it, but nice they went to get some!! No room for dessert, but we will be back!!

We were really wow'ed by Brazen yesterday. No only was the food fabulous, but the wait staff was AMAZING! We picked the restaurant based on one of my husband's favorite dishes that was on the sample menu. They update their menu often (as would be expected) and this dish was no longer available. The waitress went and asked the chef and the chef was able to make a variation of the dish that as outstanding! Bottomless mimosas were flowing and everything was just amazing! We will be back!
