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!

We love Brazen! Their outdoor seating now is amazing, and the food is always good. Their signature cocktails are really good too!

We sat at the bar in front of the chef’s station which was really fun. The food is amazing. It’s definitely pricey but not overpriced.

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.

I chose to sit outside even though I had a reservation for inside. When it got too cold they said they could not move me inside which was quite disappointing. My initial server seemed to be in training. The service was pleasant but not as accommodating as I would have preferred. The burrata was delightful. The hangar steak was also good although more cooked than the medium rare I had ordered. I appreciated the additional bread that was provided.

This was a new restaurant for us. That particular evening was a difficult one for the restaurant as they had problems with their ordering system which was not capturing entrees. Owner was very apologetic about that.
We were happy with the outdoor seating arrangement and the food. Indoors looked crowded for Covid conditions and most people were unmasked even when not eating.
Would like to try this restaurant again.

We had a great dinner out with our 3 year old. They have amazing outdoor seating. Food and drinks were great! We sat at a dinner table for our meal and then retired to their Adirondack chairs for after dinner drinks. They have child size seats for the kiddos and the adults can enjoy their time. They also have a fire pit and blankets for when it gets cold. So amazing!

It's not Brazens fault, but they were closed when we showed up. Open Table & the restaurants should be more diligent about what dining programs they've signed up for while going through Covid b.s. We'll be back but sure through us for a loop with plans that night.

A secret little local neighborhood spot that I can't recommend highly enough! Went for Happy Hour and stayed when it got dark for the s'mores. Everything we had was amazing and the atmosphere is laid back in the best way.

It was a cool evening and there is only outdoor seating so the two hot dishes we ordered, although good, were cold in a very short period of time. Very good service although some it was self.

They’ve expanded seating into the grass next to the patio. Sitting in the grass was really nice. It felt socially distanced. They have a new quasi fast casual format which worked pretty well.

Such a great neighborhood gem. Always fresh, creative dishes and drinks to try. The staff are all friendly and helpful, almost like you are family. The vibe is relaxed, and especially so, since they took over the lawn area during Covid distancing. It's like eating in someone's backyard, no rush, and lovely/ spaced out.

Made a reservation here as it was away from downtown & we wanted to avoid crowds waiting for outdoor seating. BNE was perfect & we had little to no expectations for what was in store. Tables were really spread out on their patio (way more than 10ft) but also across some open space immediately next to the patio. We felt very safe! All employees were masked @ all times. The food was surprisingly outstanding. Dishes were served family style & we ordered the chicken, watermelon salad, brussel sprouts & the farrow succotash for two people & it was PLENTY of food. All 4 dishes had unique, balanced, excellent flavors & prepared to perfection. I live in SE Denver, my friend was coming from Arvada. Kinda out of my way but I will make the effort to return to Brazen Neighborhood Eatery as it is well worth the drive!

They are only open for takout and outdoor seating right now. They have an amazing outdoor area and are utilizing the lawn adjacent with lawn chairs and small tables to mingle safely with friends. I am missing their normal menu with muscles, duck confit and all the fun stuff they used to have for specials but our meal was good. Loved the tuna poke and the burrata salad with baby heirloom tomatoes and peaches was lovely. Will go again and they need our help to make it so please go!
