Overall very good experience but we were a party of 6 and one of our group lamb came out 10 minutes after everyone was served only to be very undercooked. They comped us one dessert but truly should of comped the meal.
Made reservariam through ópera-balé for lunch which was confirmed biut when hit there was overcharles as lunch
A chego blow
As most reviews note, service here is outstanding. Very professional staff with the appropriate level of attention & thorough menu knowledge. For brevity not going to list our order but taste & presentation all in the very good to outstanding range.
Rude manger upfront
Great Experience, Awesome Service, Great Ownership and Staff
The restaurant atmosphere and noise level were very good as were some of the dishes. However, the food and service consistency were not great.
Simply fantastic on all levels. A true delight to eat here and be here.
Enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere
Great find. Food was fantastic as well as the ambiance. We had the grilled octopus, chicken liver mousse to start and two pasta dishes for the main course. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Overall, great experience.
Amazing all round
Great service and food
The first time I ate at BRERA, I really enjoyed it. It seems to have been going downhill since then. This past visit was a case in point. The cocktail I ordered (brutto negroni) was great and the bar service was friendly. Once we were seated at table, tho, things didn’t go so well. The crudo plate was dumped on the table without explanation. When we asked our server to let us know what was what, she couldn’t do so correctly. (Both apps we ordered were okay and the fritelle was the best dish of the night imo.) For entrées, one of our party ordered the seafood pasta and didn’t like mussels so asked for them on the side so others could enjoy. The pasta was overcooked and the mussels came cold. (I know they didn’t have to accommodate by sending them separately, but still... And it wasn’t particularly busy at the time so not sure why this would happen.) The rest of us had the ossu buco. The meat was okay but came in a lot of sauce that drowned the flavor of the meat itself and tasted a bit too much like bbq sauce to me. Desserts were okay but not wow. I keep wishing for the kind of great experience I had on my first visit and may yet return, even if just for cocktails and apps, but this wasn’t as good as it used to be.
Food is very good here and service is great. It's got to be hard to keep a restaurant running in Los Angeles. However I've always had great service here and the ingredients and food are great. Kudos to the management and staff.
Nothing good to say - Had a reservation, was using 10,000 points and was looking forward to discovering another downtown restaurant - Disappointed overall.
Excelente lugar para cenar, la comida es muy buena sin salirse de lo normal!
Normally a fantastic restaurant with great food. On NYE we both ordered the fish stew. The soup portion was just incredibly fishy and off despite the fish pieces tasting OK. Clearly the dish was “assembled” and the soup portion was stale or old. We sent the dishes back to the kitchen and they credited our bill but that was that.....hmmmm
Service was awesome. Good was great! Love the layout of the restaurant.
Great place food is outstanding! Also love the bar
We hade higher expectations for a Michelin 2019 restaurant. A bit disappointed of three dishes we ordered. Specially the Veal, flavor is not outstanding and tasted like sitting in a slow cooker more than a day. Love the interior design and services.
Was in OC to see friends and though it would be nice to spend a few days in LA with wife and kids.
wonderful service in an industrial ambiance....food was excellent and innovative...wife enjoyed her selection of negronis
Fantastic Italian cuisine. Gnocchi to die for! Highly recommended restaurant for everyday dining.
Food is excellent. The lamb and accompanying sides were perfectly prepared and complimented each flavor. The cocoa pasta with lobster, et al., was equally fabulous. The rib eye was well prepared with great flavor. The wine list had good selections, and the desserts were tasty. As for value, it is not inexpensive, but we are going back for dinner after the New Year.
It was good. Nice ambiance and kind employees!!
Great service. Our group had a great time.
Brera is losing it's edge.
We have been going to Brera (formerly known as "Officine Brera") for years and have really loved it.
On our most recent visit there has been a subtle change toward less quality and increased prices.
Still very good, but their kayretsu "Factory Kitchen" is now our fav.
Excellent and innovative dishes with impeccable service! Will definitely go back.
Fantastic setting for fine eating establishment. We were worried about the location, but were pleasantly surprised by the find in the warehouse district. Service was impeccable. Battuta was even better. Definitely coming back.
I had high hopes for this beautiful space... unfortunately, the food was terrible.
Food was great and the service was outstanding. Love the place
Always excellent. They have the best bread in the world!
Excellent food in a beautiful space. Courteous and efficient Staff. A little high end but worth it.
We always enjoy coming to Brera Ristorante for special celebrations. In this case it was my husband's birthday. The restaurant has a nice industrial chic feel, the service and food are both great. The server forgot one of our desserts but quickly brought it out after we told the server, and they also did not charge us for the dessert. I do wish they expand the menu more to include more varieties instead of a simple menu. People are looking for varieties and feel limited when the menu is over simplified.
Pretheater dinner. And the cacao lobster pasta. Not very much pasta at all, which was perfect for me. If you are looking for more, pasta this is not the dish. Flavors were amazing. Great appetizers as well.
Amazing food and service. The gnocchi was DIVINE :)
What an amazing place! The ambience was great, the food was outstanding and the service was impeccable.
Waiters kept coming by every 5 minutes to ask if we needed anything. We felt rushed to leave.
Fantastic setting in what looks like an old factory or warehouse. The food is a bit pricey but well worth it. We went on a rainy weekday so it was quiet and amazing.
Our dining experience at Brera was one of our best ever. We started with the Caesar salad, which was far beyond any Caesar I'd ever had. - rich and tasty and it had anchovies, which Caesar salads are supposed to have, but you just never see anymore. And it was a big salad - the three of us split it.
My wife had a meat pasta dish, which we were invited to taste and it was delicious. And our friend and I both ordered the osso bucci. I've had osso bucco at a fine restaurant in Italy; this was every bit as good. The meat was perfectly seasoned and literally fell off the bone. Oh, and I nearly forgot the Gentleman's Breakfast cocktail with the bone marrow-infused bourbon. Wonderful!
Brera is just a sensationally good restaurant. We're recommending it to all of our friends who love Italian food, and plan to return soon and often.
I was there for a business meeting. Great food, but it can be pricey if you order multiple items. However all the food was very good.
