What a lovely time the 5 of us had at my favorite restaurant! The new twist to the goat cheese appetizer is delicious! Very fresh tasting with the blueberries which are perfect with the dish. Eggs Benedict was a big hit. The star of the meal goes to the HUGE shrimp cocktail. Must have! And leave room for dessert!!! Love everyone there. Thanks again Jen and Jonathan!

The early reviews had us curious. We looked forward to trying it. On balance it was OK to good, but not outstanding. My wife really liked her gnocchi appetizer and we both thought my roast chicken entrée was quite good. The onion soup was a bit different from most. On the plus side chock full of onions and not salty, the downfall of many onion soups, but also didn't taste quite like most onion soups either. My wife's scallops were a disappointment. They were not bad, but the portion was a bit small, and she came across some grit, a definite no-no!
Desserts were OK. My wife was not a big fan of her lemon meringue. I was OK with what was called "pot de crème", but it was actually a scoop of mildly flavored coffee ice cream alongside some whipped cream on top a very thick layer of very rich dark chocolate, certainly not a traditional pot de crème.
Managers occasionally cruised by inquiring as to our satisfaction, but didn't linger long enough to actually engage. Their inquiries seemed quite "pro-forma" and the restaurant wasn't especially busy. We might not have provided much in the way of meaningful feedback, but really didn't even have the chance.
It's ok as long as your expectations are reasonable.

This week could not have been more spectacular. There were 4 of us who wined and dined and loved every mouthful. However it was dessert this week that gets the 5 stars. Pot de creme and profiteroles. Must get, leave room for dessert!!!!

Music nice for Sunday brunch but too loud. But $35 buffet? No rolls, croissants. One bagel. Six lonely shrimp left out, one oyster, no plates at all. No one paying attention to the buffet table. Omelet guy cooking an omelet and doesn't realize he has no flame. No bread at the table. Not cool. Nobody home. Trout was good though.

Much better than first experience. First time they seated us 40 minutes late, service was very slow (I asked for pitcher of water because glasses were empty), but food was great. This visit was much better! Table was ready, service was on point, and food was excellent. Only complaint was the front room on second floor was VERY loud! Uncomfortably so. Need some sound deadening.

Waited 15 minutes to get a tasting of a beer, waited 15 minutes more to order, then 5-10 minutes to get it: when it came it went down fast! I ate the $32 scallops: very average. Disappointing

Another fabulous night at The Bercy. Delicious dinner. Amazing drinks (try the Plastic Heart). Shout out to the ever gracious Jenifer and waiter of the year, Corey. Salmon appetizer was a perfect start to a wonderful dinner of beef, mussels and the best frites! Ended with apple tart with amazing ice cream. Go.

After enjoying for years the Italian restaurant that the Bercy replaced in the same wonderful location, I was disappointed by this brasserie not so much because of its food but because of its prices. At a lower price, more comparable to that of its predecessor, I would gladly go here again, but its current prices - both for wine and for food - are not reflective of quality. That makes it seem a bit pretentious, as if the designation as a French “brasserie” were itself sufficient to justify its prices. Having spent many an evening at brasseries in Paris, I thought this one fell far short of the mark even on that score, in its food and drinks as well as its atmosphere. For this, I would not pay again what they are asking.

A bit of a Disney World approach to bistro cooking. I just returned from a trip to FRance and reality was still in my mind. Wine choices very disappointing. Pleasant atmosphere, the restaurant would do better with a different style of cooking.

As usual, Krista Bell was lovely. She is very warm, welcoming, attentive, and knowledgeable about the food and menu.

Unfortunately, the Kitchen seemed to have several issues.
During this visit, we did disclose an allergy. An alteration was made to our appetizer, which arrived after the entrees.

A member of our party, did end up suffering an allergic reaction. We shared this info with Bercy. The manager circled back with our table and instead of apologizing or showing any concern of remorse while this person was clearly missing from the table, took zero responsibility and basically denied that the food could have caused the reaction. While our friend is ok, I have major concerns for other who may potentially suffer much more serious and life threatening reactions while dining at Bercy. Disappointed in managements handling of this matter.

They were out of the special that we ordered but didn’t tell us until our meals were served then everyone got their dinner except one person who ordered it.
Also, the food was just average. I expected better. Not very flavorful

I did not feel the quality of the food or the menu choices were on point for a "French Brasserie." I had butternut squash gnocchi and the texture of the gnocchi was great, there was little flavor of squash. And the cheese on top was excessive. A sprinkle would have been adequate, not the thick layer that overpowered it all. The apple frangipane tart was missing the apples - the crust was tasty. Service was very good but it was early on a Sunday evening so the restaurant was not very busy. Not worth the money.

Thank you Therese for finding the silver lining and complimenting service, I will be happy to pass those details along. Thank you also for your candid feedback about our menu offerings and execution. This is phenomenal, specific details I can take back to my team to improve. We are constantly listening to feedback and changing our menu based on availability, seasonality and the wants and needs of our community. Thank you.

Thank you for providing this feedback, we offer a grand buffet on Sundays 10a-3p, we have a full team responsible for maintaining and replenishing over 100 unique items, sauces, bowls and dishes. There is no excuse why the buffet did not look perfect unless it is currently being restocked and refreshed. We will continue to monitor this closely and ensure our grand buffet is just this, grand and perfect every minute we are open. Thank you - JV
