As usual it was great! We had a friend from out of town and she said the pan-fried Brie salad with salmon was the best thing she’d ever had! I had that as well and I agree! My husband had the rueben which never disappoints!!

Small menu, but everything on it is magnificent. The price is affordable, the portions are large, the drinks are strong and good. The staff is exceptional. The location is on point.
I was curious about a dish, they provided a small sample (who does that)!!
I go here relaxed attire and formal attire. It’s really one of a kind of place.

The outdoor dining space was spacious and the staff was wonderful and following all safety measures. It was a wonderful experience. I noticed they do have warmers for their outdoor dining so that is a plus that will encourage me to keep coming in the cooler months. Great happy hour food and drink specials.

The food...AMAZING! The decor....LOVE IT! The drinks....bartenders know exactly what they are doing! Waitstaff...attentive and friendly! Costumer service...best we’ve ever had. Last time we went we were highly disappointed, but we gave them another try. Karen recognized us right away and went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make it right. Treated us like family. This is a must try in my books and we will be regulars from now on.

My husband and I dined at the Brass Onion on Saturday night. Let me just tell you that it was phenomenal-again! This Louisiana girl loves her shrimp any way she can have it, and the NOLA Barbecue shrimp did not disappoint! The sauce was a perfect blend of spices and sweetness that had us dipping our French bread over and over, and the shrimp were perfect.y cooked! I had the crab-topped salmon with quinoa, kale, and asparagus upon a delicious beurre blanc sauce that was divine! My husband had the prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes, and green beans; the meat was cooked to perfection, and when dipped in the horseradish sauce, there was no better bite!

Overall, the experience was fantastic. A nice fall evening, eating outside in the patio area, was an amazing experience. The food was fantastic. The only glitch was that we had to cancel the appetizer because our entrees were served before the appetizer was.

We ate dinner here for our anniversary last weekend and it was great! This was our first time at the Brass Onion and we were pleasantly surprised. We reserved a table outside and the patio was a great place to dine. Our server was very prompt and our food was delicious. We had Braised Beef Short Ribs and the 8oz Filet. They were both cooked well and the sauce had great flavor. We'll definitely be back!

It was my husbands birthday. We sat outside and it was a beautiful night. The food was fantastic as always. The service was only fair. The waiter didn't really act like he cared. I do believe that's the first time that's ever happened there, for us. Hopefully he's there only a short time!

We were looking for something new and found this. It was a great place for date night, good drinks, good menu variety and the patio seating was a nice. We are not a fans of a typical bar & grill menu and thankfully they are not a typical bar & grill and had nice diversity on the menu! Oh and the drink menu is great, its nice to find a place that has a well stocked bar and most importantly someone that knows how to pour a good cocktail.

The server Danny was great! Attentive. Food we chose was a variety. The Brie salad ordered was plain no protein- however, it arrived with Salmon. I was assured we would not be charged for the salmon. Yet it appeared on the bill.

We noticed their disinfecting technique is less than appropriate. The persons cleaning tables sprayed disinfectant on clothes directly and wiped the table. There is a contact time with disinfectant which was not observed. Big fat “F” for keeping patrons safe.

This dinner was for my birthday . 3 out of 4 got the what we ordered and the 4th was corrected relatively quick. The food was good. The issue was our server. It took about 10 minutes to place our drink order then 10 minutes later they drinks came out. 3-4 were right. Fixed the 4th and ok. And that was kinda the last time we really communicated with him until we finally saw him again 40 minutes later. So an hour later we asked him if he could take our dinner order. He looked at us in complete bewilderment and said sure. We also ordered another round of drinks and an appetizer. He never followed up on if we needed anything else like water. And then other people came out with dinner. He came by after we were served to find one of our dinners was prepared incorrectly. No question if we would like dessert or how was the food. The manager came by after we paid and we explained the food was good but took over an hour to flag down server to order food.
So with the current occupancy levels in restaurants and unemployment as a server I would be trying harder.

On arrival, we were told that they were out of several things when we went to order (which is disappointing because the restaurant had just opened). Service was extremely slow. It Took 40 plus minutes to receive food after placing order. I ordered an a la carte item as an appetizer and it never came. The Waitress FINALLY remembered and asked if I still wanted it after bringing us our entree. I declined. There was literally no “checking in on us” to see how everything was and the waitress was non existent at times. Restaurant did not appear busy. We ordered Mr. B’s fried chicken meal and one piece of my daughters chicken wasn’t fully cooked all the way through (not edible). When the waitress came back, I notified her and explanation was this has been happening a lot lately and she’s not sure what’s going on. It wasn’t a big deal to her and that’s unacceptable. While we were waiting on our food, the people across from us had complaints with their food and they had to speak with the manager about it. I guess that should have been My first sign. My first experience here was better. I can’t see myself going back nor recommending the Brass Onion.

From beginning to end, the meal we had was excellent as was the service provided by our server Michael. The flatbread breakfast pizza is a must and so is the mimosa carafe. The patio was a great place to enjoy our meal too!
