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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
