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.

The first thing you notice walking in is that NO ONE ELSE is here. The waitress was most intent on telling us the specials even after we asked if we could get a cocktail first. The food came fast and was very tasty, but we couldn’t leave fast enough. Eerily empty. I hope the chef stays while someone figures out a marketing plan!

Had breakfast here. All of the food was bland and the service was lacking. There were only two other families in the restaurant so it wasn't because the place was busy. All of the eggs ordered were a bit rubbery, the toast cold, and breakfast fajitas and calamari dish we ordered very bland. And it was not cheap. Almost $50 for two entrees and a kids plate. Would not go again.

Great breakfast omelets. However, we arrived at 7am with reservations through OpenTable, and while the door was open and we were able to sit, nobody arrived at the restaurant to take our order until 7:15. The man who arrived (owner? waiter? manager?) never apologized and took his time taking our order (we arrived at 7:00; he arrived at 7:15; he didn't come by to take our order until 7:30).

Booked a table for 6 @11:30am on Sunday, prime time Brunch hour. We were seated almost exactly on time. We ordered 2 sides of bacon, Jalapeño omelette, Western Omelette, their Brookline Light Bowl (lite?), Corn Beef Hash plate & banana blueberry pancakes. The food came out within 20 minutes, even delivered by the chef himself, a nice touch. It was warm and rated from good to very . The only downside was one of us ordered one of their advertised brunch cocktails when we first sat, but we were told we had to wait 20 minutes till noon. It was a buzz kill, no pun intended. Maybe it’s a Brookline regulation on Sunday or a Brothers policy but it was disappointing; when noon rolled around the food was coming and they ordered tea instead as they usually do. It’s a minor detail but brunch and “Bloodies” just go together.

Wonderful food. 5 of us ordered 5 different meals and 5 different wines by the glass. Everyone raved. I like that they offer regular table seating as an alternative to high-tops, which I find extremely uncomfortable. The menu has a wide variety of options.

The chef is great, and therefore the food is too. The only negative is the ambiance - if Brother's could work on that then for me they would have it all. Just a matter of paying attention to the tables and decor.

This was our first time at Brothers for dinner -- a friend of ours was performing. We found everything about it (except the performance) not bad but very ordinary. The salmon, chicken parm, and crab cakes were OK but not more than. There are so many better restaurants in north Brookline that we would not return to this one.
