From the very beginning the experience was very poor, if I could give 0 stars I would. The lady serving us was disinterested and very rude. Felt like we were just being rushed to order.
Myself and my daughter had the soup was definitely not tomato and basil and was a very close to Heinz tomato soup.
Myself and my other daughter had fish cakes with leeks, there was far too much lemon in the sauce and over powdered everything. We have to remove the fish cakes from the sauce to be able to eat it. My husband venison meal consisted of a deep fried potato that should have been roast and my daughters pork chop fondant potato was not soft and buttery as it should be. Not at any point throughout our starters or main course did anyone ask if our meals ok otherwise we would have said something but not at any point we’re we given this opportunity.
I had an empty drinks glass for a long length of time and never asked if would like another. Had 1 drink the entire duration of our stay.
When the waiter came to collect our meals he could clearly see the amount of inedible food that had been left but not once asked again if everything was ok even when we asked for the bill whilst our main meal was sat in front of us did anyone ask if there was a problem. Over a £100 down the drain and extra money you missed out on for extra drinks and desserts had the quality and customer service been there. We felt as though they wanted us in and out. Food, customer service and overall it was extremely poor. We follow the Michelin guide and this is by far the worst food and experience we have ever had.

We enjoyed the friendly and efficient service, and the presentation and quality of the food. (Our only mild criticism would be that the peach was not very ripe.) We were encouraged to feel that Brazz was able to offer a top quality experience again, having been through a bit of a dip after it's strong opening some years ago.

We had a delightful lunch at the Brazz. The staff were polite and attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious and plated well. All in all a special occasion was made even more special.

We have attended Brazz three times recently and on each occasion have requested a quiet side table away from the entrance of the bar, but on all three occasions we have ended up on stuck in the main thoroughfare, with people brushing past our table and knocking our table or ourselves!
Our previous visit was for our wedding anniversary and a request was made for a side table, but again to no avail.
Our last visit we booked our table for 8pm, but were left waiting for a table for around half an hour with no explanation. Eventually we were placed right in the thoroughfare again!! When Our food arrived it was not of a good standard, with the sauce for a steak being congealed to a mass of glupe and cold! The noise was so bad that we couldn’t hold a reasonable conservation without having to practically raise our voices.
This has left us feeling that we will probably not return and certainly will not be recommending to people.

Very odd.
Welcomed in, sat at table, brought menus.
Ordered drinks, starters and mains.
One starter delivered.
Waited.
And waited.
And waited.
Seeing my wife hadn't touched her starter waiter eventually asked is everything OK?
Finally got my starter.
Then asked - Where's the wine we ordered?
Waiter had to order wine again!
Really very poor service.
We weren't in a hurry so not too bothered, but once we'd finished deserts they were rushing us out to clear table for next customers.
Personally not bothered, but quite poor service for Brazz.
Been many times before, but wouldn't rush back.
Recommend Brazz to a friend for food, but not for service.

I had many expectations about dinning at the Brazz. It was an horrible experience that I don’t intend to repeat. The music was so loud I had to make an effort to listen to my date. The cocktail could be better as I could spit coarse salt while drinking it. The food although well presented it was not what was asked, a different meat cut was served and not well cooked, it was barely touched and returned to the kitchen. The lady at reception when we went to pay for parking although not charging for it, didn’t acknowledge us at all, kept her eyes down scribbling somethings else and even when we addressed her to show gratitude, she was absolutely rude and disrespectful not replying back or making any eye contact. I will not recommend the Brazz to my friends or family. It was bad overall.

Brazz just seems to get better and better. The team are so charming and helpful and go beyond their remit to provide kind and empathetic service. John Godfrey has really got the menu right and is serving up some very tasty well cooked dishes. It's great to see it so busy after such a horrendous year for hospitality.

I found the service poor at the beginning, drinks order took too long and the drinks took too long to arrive. The menus we're not clean, they were also given in the wrong order, i.e. Man first.
I was quite surprised and disappointed. However the food was the standard I expected, fantastic!

have eaten at Brazz a number of times and the only criticism I have had was noisein the main areal with bar. This time we were in the adjacent upper room, which was quiet - much better, though one couple astonished me by asking to transfer to the other area. (couldn't have had much to say to one another!)

We had booked a table, were given a menu and ordered food, it was only then we were told food wasn't available for another hour. It ruined our evening. Would have expected better.

Dear NikkiA, We're sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit, however all the information both on Opentable & our own website clearly displays that dinner is served from 6pm. We are open throughout the afternoon daily for drinks, coffees & sandwiches. We hope that you do visit again for lunch or dinner & get to enjoy the Brazz experience. Kind regards The Brazz Team

The food and service are very good and I go there by choice when I want to dine with friends.
Noise levels are high - it seems to be a common problem in restaurants and it would be nice to have it reduced, perhaps when the effect of Covid on finances has been surmounted.

The Road to a Michelin is more a flat tyre sadly.

Celebration lunch which was let down by poor food served. The staff to a point were attentive and changed my badly cooked rump steak which was full of fat and not been prepared or rested before serving and awful, the manager did change the main course and was understanding, I then went for the halibut which was good but it interrupted the timings of the event and my guest had finished her meal by the time my second option arrived so disappointed with that, no discount was offered when the bill arrived after explaining, I did not expect to pay more for the halibut, this was rectified and I did receive a £5.00 discount.

I fully understand we have all experienced hard times over the last 18 months or so and business has been hard, but I have to say Brazz has reopened lacking luster, atmosphere and much more it could be compared to eating in a mediocre cafe.

If your looking for a vibrant restaurant /bar, and good food, sadly Brazz is not there, and I would advise you look around before booking so not to be disappointed.

Food was really nice however the waiting time was fairly long. We had to wait around 20 minutes to order drinks and the table next to us were trying to order drinks but no one was coming over. There was also quite a long wait between starters and main, I think they may have been short staffed, the staff that were there however were very lovely. Nice place and nice food.

I was out with my daughters and one of their partners ( my husband was not well so couldn’t be there) however it was a lovely evening, we were seated in the hotel rather than than Brass main dining/bar area which we were pleased about as it was nice and quiet so we could chat. The food and the service we received was excellent and will definitely be back.

Brazz is one of our favourite restaurants in Taunton, however this time we were somewhat disappointed in our meal. The waiting staff were not of the usual high quality we've come to expect from the Brazz team - coming across as rather bored and not particularly bothered about us - a definite lack of interaction. The food tasted great but there were a few issues. I had hummus to start - it came with a few roasted vegetables but nothing else to eat it with, I had to ask for some toast - but I was told that I couldn't have toast but there was bread available - maybe a spoon would have been better. My husband's main dish - the roasted beetroot was tiny - I had ordered extra vegetables instead of chips and he had those - otherwise he would have been still hungry. If this had been our first visit to Brazz we wouldn't be going back.
