The food and dining area are great but the service was slow. This was because it was busy and not so much a problem with the staff or waitress.

Hostess was unfriendly and offered us the worst seat in an empty restaurant. Because we asked we got a better table. Bathroom was in need of sprucing up. General cleanliness needed improvement. Will not return. Ambiance was not appealing

Brunch was good. Everyone had a combination of eggs, pancakes, corned beef hash, potatoes, and bacon. The coffee was exceptionally good! Would definitely come back and recommend.

Service was faster than expected and the food was amazing!!! The price for 4 people was lower than I ever would have guessed, which was fantastic. I'd definitely get brunch here again!

Poutine was very good.

Two of us ordered the duck. We probably should have sent it back. I like mine medium rare and the first couple of slices were almost bloody.

Brownstone is a great venue for a bar party. Friendly, accommodating, no hassle. Reserve the high top (table 50) if you want to stay late and move between the table and the bar. Our server was amazing--he brought new glasses out as more people arrived, took individual and group orders, brought us waters. Wonderful night, Thank you!

Service was excellent and food was delicious. Waitress was pleasant and attentive. Restaurant can be very noisy at night but was quiet for lunch. We were in and out in an hour and made it to the matinee we were attending close by. Would definitely come back.

This place is great! A little bit noisy as, perhaps, any other bar but overall it is one of my favorite bars - they provide a good choice of beer, wine, and cocktails. Will definitely come back and recommend everyone I know.

Good food and portions. Bloody Mary presentation is nice, but the mix needs doctoring. Busy on the weekends, but you're smart enough to use OpenTable so that's not a problem! Enjoy!

We went for Brunch around 2:30 on a Saturday with a party of seven. It was not packed and easy to sit and be comfortable. Our waiter was polite, funny and prompt. The quality of the food was amazing with a great price for food and drinks. Overall the experience was great for a birthday brunch and I will definitely be going back.

Needed a place for an early brunch on Sunday. Menu variety looked good! Unfortunately the food was only fair: pancakes were dry and tough, hash was boring and mostly potato, crouque monsieur uninteresting. Too early to get drinks ... would probably not got there again.

Went here for brunch on a Sunday and had decent drinks (we got espresso martinis). I ordered the Egg Sammy and was upset that the "good bread" I was promised was actually just toasted white bread. Also swapped in fruit for the side and the blueberries weren't edible. A "meh" experience, but it's cool that they do brunch all week.

My sister insisted I tried Brownstone as she loves it here. I️ showed up 10 minutes earlier then her and was sat at table behind a wall. I️ was going to say something to the hostess but she walked away as fast as she sat me. It was over 10 minutes until a server finally walked over with waters to tell me she wasn’t my server but here are some waters. I️ was still somewhat annoyed after 5 more minutes went by and our server was still no where to be found. I️ think it was because we were hidden behind the wall. I got up an to ask the hostess to move our seats and she told me they were for other reservations, so I said that’s fine let me speak to your manager. At that point the server came over, I had thought he was the manager and I️ explained how unhappy we were with our seats and that 15 minutes had gone by without even a greet. He apologized and got us drinks immediately. The manager finally came over, he didn’t introduce himself and I️ don’t believe he apologize but did offer to move us. At this point we decided to just stay we we were.

The atmosphere was nice, not too loud. The food and ice cold brew was delicious and my sister loved her Bloody Mary. The face of the restaurant, the hostess just had no clue. If someone is unhappy, you make them happy, it’s what hospitality is all about. If I️ hadn’t drove all the way from Beverly Farms, I️ would have left. However, the server changed our experience no one else.
