    Appetizer and dinner was amazing! I had the lamb dish and my date had the crab risotto and both were delicious. The waiter offered insight on the wines and helped us both pick out exactly what we were looking for. Waiter and cooking staff were very attentive. My date has a nut allergy and they were cautious to inform us of the dishes containing any. We will definitely be returning here in the future.

    Brenner Pass offers a very pleasant dining experience. The space is airy and modern. The cocktails are creative and tasty. The beer and wine selections suit the menu, which changes often enough to be seasonal and interesting. I enjoyed the Chicken Marsala, a slightly crispy chicken breast served on a bed of even crispier pomme frite with the classic rich Marsala sauce. The house salad was plenty for two, very fresh lettuce with thin-sliced shallots and a simple dressing. My companion enjoyed her mussels with pasta, which went well with the lemon-grass infused lager and a German pilsner. The service was excellent, relaxed and attentive. Next time, we will have the seafood tower. The one I saw looked very impressive.

    The restaurant was not full, but we arrived at 7pm, ordered drinks, then ordered our meal and appetizers. Suffice it to say, that other tables arriving after us were served before us, and we didn't finish our meal until @ 9. The food was quite good, but the length of time on a Thursday night was too long. Otherwise, we really like this restaurant and will be back.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Brenner Pass. It was our anniversary and when we got to our table, there was a card and our server brought us sparkling wine for a toast. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant to our friends and family and will be back again.

    My wife and I chose Brenner Pass for dinner as an anniversary present to ourselves. It was a good choice. The food is both exciting and comfortable at the same time - allowing moments of palette extension with dishes like carpaccio and cherries as well as providing some of the best French fries and liquid cheese I have ever had. And the bartender - phenomenal. Brenner Pass was an excellent experience.

    We really enjoyed our first visit to Brenner Pass. Seven of us showed up to celebrate our youngest son's 21st birthday. When we got there, the staff had left a sweet card on our table, which I thought was a very nice touch. The waitress was very professional and was just the right combination of attentive without hovering. She had an excellent knowledge of the menu and was very helpful when it came to deciphering some of the more creative offerings. We started with cocktails. The Snow Bunny and Coy Mistress were both delicious. The charcuterie board, fondue, and malakoff were more than enough for our group of 7. (All of these dishes centered around cheese, so what's not to love?) Our group ordered burgers, lamb, quail, pasta, and the flammkuchen. Everything was cooked to perfection and there was enough - even with the small plates - for leftovers. Dessert included the milk cake and the carrot eclair. The milk cake wasn't quite as moist as a tres leche, but it was delicious in its own right. While I was skeptical about the carrot eclair, I have to admit that the carrot ice cream was the perfect compliment to the creamy eclair. So, what did we love about Brenner Pass? Let's see...The restaurant has a very sleek and modern feel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. (They made us feel like we were their guests and never rushed us to order.) The menu is only one page, but it is very innovative and includes both large and small plates. Cocktails were out of this world. (If nothing else, drop in for drinks sometime.) The bathrooms were incredibly clean. (Don't underestimate the importance of that!) Parking was easy to find. (And that's not something you can say about most places in Scott's Addition.) I would definitely recommend Brenner's Pass for a relaxing dinner or a special night out with friends/family. Kudos to the owners and staff for creating a unique and enjoyable dining experience.

    I can’t rave enough about this restaurant. The ambiance is modern yet cozy. The service is polite, courteous and professional. The food is amazing. Starting with the oysters-so fresh, plump and flavorful. Everything is made from scratch and so inventive. The tagliatelle with white clam sauce had the perfect white wine sauce, the GrilledChar had this amazing Parmesan froth covering it and the signature burger was cooked perfection. We followed with an an exquisite dessert of rhubarb, yogurt and walnut cookie Sunday. We will return many times.

    We sat at the bar and the bartender was very helpful in finding me something that I would like. We had always had the fondue when we came but this time we just had two starters and were pleasantly full just with that. The quality of the food is among the best in the whole city and is always interesting and yet very simple.
