While we had reserved a table through Opentable, we still waited nearly 25 minutes to be seated. There was no point in reserving and the hostess was extremely inefficient. There were many parties waiting who were also quite annoyed. We were 3 people in the end and they sat us at a 2-top so it was highly uncomfortable. We have dined here a few times in the past for brunch and the food is always good, but this time the service and management of the crowded brunch time was awful. We will not be returning anytime soon, unfortunately.
Good food and service
Great food. Nice staff. Will be back!!!
My sister in law and I love to check out new places, for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner, especially if there’s a full bar. The waitress was great, super nice and personable. Food was good, not great and the sticky floor throughout, was kind of a turn off. Place could use a good once over.
Good value & tasty fare. Service was friendly and our requests for side dish substitutes were carried out correctly. Really, my only complaint about Brothers is that they had not vacuumed the floor -- which made a negative impression.
I love Brothers for their food and entertainment with the Winiker Orchestra and the Singers they welcome up to sing for the diners and they are all talented. The food is excellent and it’s a wonderful night.
Food was great and service was fine albeit the restaurant was under staffed.
Superb brunch food and very good service. Unfortunately this time, a large group was treating the place as their private function room.
All 3 of us loved our entrees. The lamb shank was perfect! The drinks were also delicious- Great limoncello martini and perfect cosmo. Look forward to going back!
Very overpriced. The waiter was very nice, but they used the New Year’s menu early so they could charge more and were out of a number of drinks listed on the menu. The food was just OK.
Restaurant needs updating. Doesn’t justify pricing.
Made a reservation thinking it would be a great place for 8 people to eat. The food was just ok and the service likewise, but they did have great entertainment which is every weekend on Saturday and Sunday nights with Bill & Bo Winniker which is worth the trip. The portions are generous. Just wish the food was better
Churrasco meat was tough and chewy. It was not a good cut of meat. The restaurant had one waiter who was unable to keep up with the orders. He forgot to serve the appetizers.
If you like a good omelette you cannot beat brothers! I want their chicken fiesta omelette again tonight SO bad! 😋
Delightful, creative fusion-style menu, live, tasteful music with opportunity to sing along; excellent service. A treat all around--highly recommended
Delicious entress and great music to listen to by the Winiker Band, plus singers. Great night out. HIghly recommend.
A nice find! Food was delicious and priced reasonable. Staff was accommodating! It was a tad chilly but it was a cold morning and the restaurant had just opened.
Very good food
We really liked the food and the service was good even though it was very busy. I did think asking us to leave as they had a table of ten to seat was kind of rude. I understand they were busy but we spent alot and it just felt rude. Otherwise, I would absolutely come back and we will. Very nice place. Excellent food. A little pricey but very nice.
Excellent brunch--great eggs Benedict and challah French toast selection, as well as creative mimosa choices. Excellent value! Can get a touch loud and crowded.
We had a very good meal and enjoyed our time. The lamb was very good as was the calamari starter.
I love Brother’s Restaurant. A wonderful treasure in Brooline and especially on Saturdays and Sundays when the Winiker’s play music and invite singers to sing and play instruments. Friendly, great food and the place to be.
We went to hear the Winiker Band, and know the food is good, with moderate prices. Just love the combination of great music and food.
Given all the other great alternatives in the neighborhood, the experience was mediocre at best. Went for a brunch/lunch on a Saturday. Staff was nice enough, but level of service was just so-so. Nothing stood out here. Meh.
The food was pretty good but not exceptional as the reviews we had read led us to believe. The place was old and needs updated.
We had a reservation for party of five for lunch. We were sat right away and The server came over promptly . The menu has breakfast options and lunch options.They also have specials including cocktails Mimosa’s etc. we did not have to wait long for our meals. The food was fresh hot and delicious. We would definitely go back.
Good brunch addition to the area
Nice jazz band. Good food and cocktails.
I love love love the service at brother's - it is consistently the best service I have had in the area (and I live here)! The food is a tad bit pricy but you get what you pay for. Everything - especially the fruit - is fresh. The food is creative and tasty. I also love how they make their own muffins.
Fantastic brunch menu, very good food and good quality! Service also very good, we’ll be back!
Great breakfast place, priced well especially for the area.
We met our son and future daughter in law for breakfast. All of our breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. My omelet was perfection!! The Challah bread French toast with fruit was incredible. Fresh, Fresh Fresh and real maple syrup. Highly recommended!
That was a very good choice for Sunday dinner with friends. Food was very good and live music performance was great.
The food here is great but the service I awful. We made a reservation for standard seating for 11am and not only did we not get standard seating, we also didn’t sit until 11:15am. The table we eventually sat at also was empty for about 5 mins before someone bused it so that we could sit down. Great food but don’t bother making a reservation, they don’t mean anything here!!
Disgusting food, inept service - never again
Service was terrible. Food was okay but not worth the price.
Brother is a great place for breakfast in Brookline. The Challah french toast is excellent and a solid choice. Its often hard to choose with so many options in Brookline + Allston + Fenway all being close enough to consider. Don't discount Brothers, it a great place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. I have not had an oppertunity to try dinner here but will give it a go soon.
Went for brunch and it was pretty quiet and delicious! Dishes were pretty standard, nothing to write home about, but they were very well done! The little muffins they gave us as a free bread basket were👌🏻
Food was awful and tasteless. I will not be going back.
