Not the standard of service we are used to at BB. Food was good. Missing utensils, no soy/sauces on the table. Had to flag down our waiter to get drinks and then had to flag him down again to find out where they were after we ordered them—he may have been a new.

Our favorite Raleigh restaurant! We had the pleasure of introducing my cousin to Brewery Bhavana and she was just as taken with it as we are.

I had been telling my friends all about the amazing Peking duck. Our experience was fantastic, the food is always so delicious, the ambiance, the service. Highly recommend!

Great food- pricy for what you get but the experience made up for it. Not the "best" of anything I've ever had and we enjoyed the vegetarian options the best.

They expected us to scan a QR code for the menu. I had no desire to peer at menu items and descriptions on my cell phone so I asked for a menu. The server said okay and came back sometime later with an old printout of their website with food stains on it. Small thing some might say, but this QR code menu things is not optimal and having a nicely presented menu is part of the experience that I like at a restaurant. Service was a bit slow, we sat for about 10 minutes before any drink or water was offered. Once our order was made, the server (who was friendly and polite) showed up more often. Food and ambiance were great.

I loved my Sporut beer that I hadn't had in some time. The seafood dumplings were super tasty and I like the side of Chinese donuts for dipping in the broth. The lo mein was very tasty (the stalks of the green were slightly, tough). I feel like the scallion pancakes should be a little flatter and lighter (they were a little on the chewy/chunky side), but the bone marrow was very good. The soup dumplings seem a little smaller and there was less broth than in the past. Please bring back the flower shop! Missed that part for sure. Also, maybe add some sound dampening as it did get a bit noisy.

Go for the beer not the food. Was really looking forward to the soup dumplings, as it is not an item you find on many menus. Average at best. Rice cakes very chewy. Mom liked the shrimp and corn dish. Nice to see the brewers doing Foeder (Azalea) and Solera (Patina Dark ) brewing., for those who like sours. Their barrel aged Oatmeal stout (Trace) was very boozey, but great if you are a bourbon lover.

outstanding hosts and waitress! I would recommend to others, particularly for celebrating an anniversary—especially if your partner is a bookworm. The chili oil and chili paste made every meal taste even better. Thank you for making our night so special!

Everything was wonderful. Our server was great even tho he was rarely present. The seats were terrible although I'm aware a lot of restaurants do this so patrons wont linger. I feel like I would've ordered another dim sum if my back wasn't hurting. Overall A+! I will be back!

Thank you,
Gus

Great service and food as always. The Fig Dubbel and Pork Bao dumplings are my favorite. Only complaint is it gets hot inside the restaurant on the summer days. A drop ceiling would help with cooling and noise echo. Other than that the beer and food is amazing!

thankful for the veg options. But as a veg head for 12+ years I’d love to see more creativity in meat-free plates. I know the South is slowly gearing to becoming more plant based but it’s taking too, long! As a restaurant owner, I do understand pricing needs to go hand in hand with expenses (insert long list here) but at the rate of the future of food culture and bringing all kinds of people together….There is always space for improvement!

Food great. Service was slow. Food came out quickly but check ins not timed well. Sat for awhile after each time finishing food (apps, main, dessert). Felt the desserts were overpriced. While the cake slices are large overall they are not worth the price. Was told to sit at the bar before our table was ready, although there was nothing to wait for as the table was open and looked ready. I felt like it was their was it up selling. Went to bar, waited 10 mins and was never waited on save for a glass of water. Asked for coffee with dessert. Got our dessert and never got my coffee. Then when she brought the bill she said it never got made. I’d recommend but just be forewarned.

Really enjoyed the dim sum which is what drew us there. It ranged from excellent: the seafood in broth, to bland (the cabbage wraps). Overall quite good. The beer selections are extensive. Service was excellent. I’d go again.
