We came here for my mother’s 51st birthday. Unfortunately due to the current pandemic, we had to sit at two different tables as there was 9 of us. However, the food was fantastic and our waiters/waitress were very attentive. Would come back again!

The food was pretty good, but they did not cook the meat at the requested level. The meat was overcooked to my liking. The service was somewhat slow and some of the servers had a negative attitude. However, I enjoyed the overall ambiance and would give it another chance.

Food was terribly dissapointing. The Pad Thai was basically rice noodles with way too much soy sauce poured on top - none of the flavors that make pad thai delicious (like lime or peanuts, etc). I pointed out the pools of soy sauce in my bowl to our waitress (and that the other bowl of pad thai at our table was a significantly lighter shade of brown) and she replaced it with the risotto. The flavor of the risotto was a little too sweet but interesting but soupy like a broth. Didn't seem like the right consistency. It was mediocre. Outdoor space was nice and the waitstaff were nice. Very pricey for the quality of food.

The service was really good and the food was great. A complaint I currently have is that the tables were not stable but after calling the waitress, the issue was then fixed. Another complaint I have is that the tables outdoors were to close to the sidewalk where pedestrians would walk passed not respecting the social distancing rule.

Great service. A bit pricey. Food was above average but ultra fast to come out. Short ribs were plentiful but ok. Steak and the pasta dish with truffle meatballs were excellent.

We came for brunch and sat outside because of COVID. 2/3 of tables have umbrellas or shade, try for one of those on a summer day. The food, service and price were each very good. Food was visually appealing and fresh. Service attentive. The fixed price brunch is a good value - app., entree and cocktail, several choices for each. Extra cocktails just $5. I'd go back again.

Not a great dining experience at all. I understand times are different with only outdoor dining available however our service was plain awful. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Gris that came out in a strange carafe type bottle? We said we got a bottle of wine, what is this? Our server insisted it was correct and ran off instead of pouring us a sip to try. We each had a sip and it tasted like apple juice. We sent it back and got an actual bottle of a different white wine. After that sadly it didn’t get much better. We ordered an appetizer and then meals, but they brought our all 3 dishes at the same time, which could barely fit on our tiny two person table. The food was not great and we felt rushed at this point to hurry up and pay our checks. I used to enjoy this place for cocktails and apps but unfortunately don’t think I will be returning anytime soon.

We were seated around the corner from the main patio on a dirty side street. Disgusting ambiance. Server had Zero energy and wasn’t friendly. Food was very good. A shame the rest ruined the experience.

I love the Brass Rail’s brunch menu! I’ve been here before and it was great. The food and service were great, but this brunch was very loud. I had a hard time having a conversation with my boyfriend because it was very busy. Also, their online menu says brunch is $23 per person, but’s it’s really $26.

If you dine upstairs, the noise level is much ore pleasant as you are able to talk to each other. Downstairs the noise level is very loud.
The food is delicious with a good variety to choose from. Presentation is beautiful and the service is good. I like the look and vibe and have always enjoyed the experience dining here.

I am sure that being a holiday, the staff was being overworked. Our waitress was inattentive at best. The food was so-so and the noise level was extremely lively. The main level seemed like it was a friendly pub atmosphere. I would recommend it as a pub, not as a restaurant for a holiday or special occasion.
