We made reservations, but when we got there we were told “we only have seats open on the lawn” otherwise there was a 45 minute wait. We chose to sit on the lawn, which we nice being away from others, however, the table and chairs were on a slope and it made eating very complicated.

Thanks for a great meal. Food was phenomenal. Love your blueberry lemonade. Only criticism was it took a while for us to get our check and our server didn’t drop by much after taking our order.

My partner and I came for a date night as this restaurant continued to pop up in restaurant recommendations. They’re seasonal menu did not disappoint. Food was carefully crafted with complimentary flavors.
Great food & great service!

I love Brazen - the food, service, the outdoor seating, etc. cannot be beaten. It's a great neighborhood spot. The one thing I will keep saying about it, on the negative side, is the darn music is so loud, you end up screaming at people across from you...even outside. (It definitely goes up to 11.) I love the music mix; we just need it at a non-screaming level 8. :)

Thank you for the honest feedback! i have let the entire staff know not to go over a setting of the music. So hopefully the next time will be even more enjoyable. Cheers! Chris

The food choices we made were delicious: poke, pork sliders, oysters, deviled eggs. But the gnocchi was outstanding! Perfect little pockets of potatoes with mushrooms and glazed onion. The only drawback was when a vodka martini came to the table”dirty” when it was asked to be without olive juice. Oh, and when asked for limes in cocktails they brought lemons.

What a find! thumbs up to open table for leading us to this gem. lovely outdoor neighborhood dining location with large slate patio, as well as Adirondack chair and table options on the adjoining lawn. dogs looked like they were very welcome on the lawn area. indoor seating more limited. includes a large adjoining bar area. customers were mixed ages but did not see any Saturday night family dining (although would be good location for kids b/c of outdoor space). service was efficient and friendly. food was excellent, creative and seasonally focused. menu is "small shareable plates" but lower ⅔ of the offerings are big enough to call entree. would absolutely return - this neighborhood must love having Brazen in their midst!

The food is inventive and flavorful. The waitstaff attentive and friendly. And the patio setting is a delight on a summer's night. What more do you need? Chris and his crew clearly care about good food and giving customers a great dining experience. We've been here multiple times and have never had a bad dish.

The food (and wine)was terrific, and lots of it! Loved the mussels and pork sliders; salads and veggies were wonderful. S’mores, not so much. Food arrived quickly, hot and in a perfect sequence. Initially very good service declined to fair as we were ignored after the food arrived. Overall, we’d go back, possibly to linger on the lovely patio.

This is a small, cozy space. The music was very loud at first - too loud to communicate with the servers but they turned it down when we asked. The food was delicious! Our group of 3 people shared about 5 small plates. My favorite was the watermelon salad with fresh herbs and feta. The cocktail with blackberry and sage was one of the best drink recipes I've ever had and so beautifully presented. The tables are close together and it got loud by around 6:30 with so many diners crammed in. It would have been nice if they offered a gluten free dessert.

Group dinner at Brazen for a birthday. We had drinks (yummy and high octane!!) and several different dishes each, shared around the table—beet salad, meatballs, oysters, ahi tuna, Brussels sprouts, and mussels. As always, the food was great!

I love the location and patio, but really, every time I go there, the service is terrible. The wait staff is so rude. We got there right on time for a 630 reservation. They seated us on the alternate patio which was totally empty and so was the main patio. I asked about being in the main patio and they said that they were doing a service switch and that was what worked best. Nobody else sat on the alternate patio the entire night and people who showed up after us were seated on the main patio. Odd. Also I asked the waitress about some of the ingredients in one of the dishes, and she did not know the answer, didn’t Offer to find out, didn’t offer alternatives. She just seemed put out. In the past, we have also had experiences where the wait staff seems less than eager for people to be there. Pretty terrible for a neighborhood restaurant.
