A friends birthday dinner and Casey could not have been more accommodating. The food is one of the best kept secrets in the highlands/tennyson area.

Trying to find this place was near impossible - the signage is not distinct enough to show you where it is. Once you get past that, the food is yummy - deviled eggs, the hangar steak both delish. The sauce for the Peking Duck has a little kick to it - wasn't expecting that twist, though the duck was tender and delish!

Delicious food...great selection of small plates. Get the s’mores for sure! Service was just right...attentive but not overbearing. Want to go back when we can sit on the patio!

We went here for my husband’s birthday dinner this past weekend. I was beyond happy with our service from the minute we walked in the door, the hostess Kristen went above and beyond with hospitality, and the owner even came by our table to wish my husband a happy birthday. The food and drinks were fantastic!! They even carried my favorite Sagamore Rye Whiskey, so we were super happy.
My favorite dishes were the Tuna poke, the meatballs, deviled eggs, pork ragu. We finished our dinner with table side s’mores, which was perfect for 4 people to share. So much fun! We will 100% back!

This is the second time visiting Brazen - and I am continually blown away by the excellent food and the service. It feels casual, friendly and warm - the servers are always people you want to get to know better because they are so great! The food is superior and, by far, the best value in the Metro area -- plus they have a yummy drink menu. Chris, the proprietor, and his crew are absolutely the best! I cannot recommend this place enough!

A great neighborhood gem that could be the highlight of your evening our simply be a stop before or after your main event.
The food is fresh, tasty and is prepared right there. The cocktails are not over the top but are carefully prepared and always hit that spot.
Great value, excellent service and leaves you looking forward to your next visit. Love Brazen!!

Thanks.... Guy

The food and atmosphere were great, but the service was truly above and beyond. I had to push my reservation back 30 minutes and they were more than accommodating. The wait staff was top notch throughout the meal. Then we wrapped our meal and left only to have the owner chase us down outside the restaurant to offer us some drinks on the house for no particular reason. It was clear they genuinely care about their customers, and they have certainly earned a repeat customer in me.

I've been wanting to try this place for a long time and I'm glad I finally got around to it! It was amazing. We tried 4 different plates and they were all delicious, but the Niman Ranch sliders were outstanding. This is definitely the new favorite neighborhood place!

Food was very good, but people were packed in so tightly that anyone trying to get by would bump my chair all night. Extremely noisy. Expect to pay at least $50 per person for 2 tapas items and 1 drink.

We shared several fabulous starters-Brussels sprouts, beet salad, fries. Loved them so much, got a second round :) Staff was polite, wine was good. Only issue was our 2 grilled cheese entrees came out way before the other 2 entrees. All was delicious and our friends enjoyed the outing.

Everything was absolutely delicious. A bit on the pricey side but worth the splurge. We shared 6 plates between 3 people and everything was really excellent. The sliders and beet salad were amazing.

We dined here in late December right when they opened for dinner. The ambiance was pretty quiet and mellow with a cozy feel. They had the fire pit lit on the patio which was charming but a bit too cold to enjoy. The menu is for sharing so we started off with the beet salad which we all loved. It was dressed perfectly and the beets were cooked just right. The lamb ragu was very tasty with the fresh herbs but a bit heavy on the salt. The meatballs were packed with interesting things (I think pinenuts was one of them) and came in a small skillet with creamy polenta. They definitely satisfied but I think there needed to be a bit more tomato sauce with it. The meatballs don't need to be outshined, just enhanced a bit with extra sauce. The house made ricotta gnocchi was very hearty and satisfying. It had a burst of flavors with it including the oyster mushrooms which we thought went very well with the dish. The panna cotta was very tasty with it's berry sauce on top. The patio was festively lit and the dining room was warm and cozy. Service was swift and efficient.
