We had a reservation and got sat right away. However, the server didn’t come out until over 20 minutes after we sat to take our drink orders. There was a hair in one of the bao buns we ordered. Other than that, the other food was great and the beer is nice and cold and unique. The service is decent, I think they were just busy and maybe slightly understaffed in our section.

We had a great time at our early dinner/late lunch gathering with family. Our server was so nice and attentive, everyone who interacted with us was pleasant and kind. The food was amazing as always, and the cocktails were *chefs kiss* always a treat and an absolute delight when we get a chance to eat here.

Our waitress, Grace, was amazing going above and beyond helping us with wine and food choices. We had one person with a shellfish allergy and she was sure to tell us everything on the table that she needed to avoid or that she was ok eating. She was by far the best waitress we have had out since covid. Wonderful ambience, wonderful food & wonderful service. Give Grace a raise! ☺️

We loved the Dim Sum and I really enjoyed my shrimp Lo Mein. My son ordered the Sichuan Fish. We both love hot and spicy food and were excited about this dish. That said, it had the heat but was not very flavorful. I would gladly order the Dim Sum again but not the Sichuan Fish.

The food was wonderful. My only complaint was I ordered the general tso’s tofu and I got a huge bowl of tofu. It was good, but I would have liked 1/2 the tofu and some kind of vegetable. Same for my friend who ordered the general tso’s chicken. Service was good and the coconut chocolate cake was delicious. I will return now that I have a better understanding of the menu.

My entire family and I were extremely disappointed and left this restaurant very hungry & upset. We were excited to celebrate my father's birthday and the food was really awful. The staff did not care that it was my father's birthday either and we I made this reservation 3-4 months ago. We will not be returning.

Always a unique and good experience. I was disappointed that a couple of the Dim Sun had run out for the evening. If you are seating people at 8:45pm I would expect full menu. Overall good food though and good service.

The team was very accommodating when we showed up with 2 extra people with an already large party. Our waitress was amazing and so helpful. The food was timed perfectly for a large group family style meal. Would highly recommend Brewery Bhavana, just make sure to make your reservation as early as possible, they book up fast!

Wonderful service and greeting from the door! Molly was especially cool to my friend who was visiting for the first time.
This place never disappoints with the food or cocktails and definitely not the beer. I thoroughly enjoyed being here, on Wednesday it felt like a Saturday and that’s what you want in a dining experience. Will continue to back again and again.

Love this spot for Dim Sum. Just glad it isn't "all-you-can-eat"...because I would overstuff myself with Curry Chicken Bao and Soup Dumplings! And their Rice Congee is the world's greatest comfort food.
