    The food and service was absolutely great. Our waiter, Jesus G was attentive and prompt and provided first class service. He also made great recommendations. We started with the frisee and little gem salads, both were very large for side salads, very fresh, great flavor. For the mains we ordered the striped bass fish special and the beef bourguignon. Both entrees were excellent as well, hard to pick which we liked better. They have some "off the menu items", like the french fries with foie gras gravy. We didn't have it, but may have tried it had we known. It looked fantastic. If I had one complaint, it was the crowd/table spacing. Tables are very close together, and they seated us right next to the bar, 3 feet from where groups of people were standing 4 deep with very little space. The waiter kindly asked one gentleman to step back as he kept backing his rear into the back of my chair. He did apologize. That said, I would still go back again, but would request a window seat vs the wine room.

    My 3rd or 4th visit to Brasserie 19. Delicious, creative menu. Chilled corn soup was delightful for a hot Sunday afternoon. Red fish special with crispy chilies also a great preparation. Look forward to my next visit!

    Service was slow. We actually sat for over an hour before getting our meal and the restaurant was fairly empty. At one point we wanted to order additional drinks but the server wasn’t around. When we saw him, he was very polite but overall the service was painfully slow.

    Food was back to outstanding! With Charles Clark takin* over the leadership here, the menu and kitchen have truly stepped up the quality and flavors coming out of the kitchen. Nice to see Charles actively engaged with the guests throughout our visit. Salmon was creatively prepared, the trout dish was gracious and delicious (especially the sauce!) Wine prices up a little from the past, but the selections have a HUGE upgrade. B19 was left to wander along for a number of years, but now the food is back, the chic clientele have returned, and the place was packed with energy. Kudos to bringing back one of my favorites, I’ll again be returning on a regular basis!

    I had requested table by window. Hostess showed us table a row away. There were 2 tables by window unoccupied but said ours was considered a window seat? Later 2 people came in whom hostess hugged and led them to window seat. My husband and I have been long time customers of restaurant. Owner comes in and is bustling around speaking to some patrons and not others. It seems he would be cordial to all customers not just a few. Never asked how our food was, etc…. Our server seemed distracted. My husband even noticed. Our food was excellent but atmosphere was a bit unsettling. We were celebrating Father’s Day.

    Our foursome had great service and everyone enjoyed the varied dishes we ordered. A wider variety of fish main dishes, desserts & liqueurs would have been appreciated. The restaurant overall was a little noisy, though at 5:30 on a Sunday, we were able to sit in a quieter area. However, the ambience was marred by a gaggle of loud women who were clearly members of "the oldest "profession"".

    My main issue was the service. Our appetizers and main courses all came out at the same time (which was annoying but no big deal)…well all except my main plate. I ordered the Chicken and was not told it would take much longer than all the other food. My group was almost done with their meals by the time my food came out (had them just pack it up to go, not even bother with plating it). From the moment our food came out, our waiter didn’t check in on us. We were unable to ask about my plate or order more drinks. We finally flagged him down and that’s when he said the Hen takes longer to make, which I was not made aware of. I understand if there’s something that takes longer but that long… While it was a Sunday don’t think it was busy enough for our waiter to not check in on us after a few minutes of having our food come out.

    My son’s early Father”s Day luncheon. It was a fun experience, everyone in the dining room was having a good time. Food was good but I found the mussels broth to be very salty. The little gem salad and my son’s seafood croissant were awesome.We’ll definitely be back.

    The restaurant was having a festival of Rose wine, so the place was packed and very loud. The owner, Charles Clark, has been revising the menu and improving the cuisine which was always serviceable but is now very good. There are new offerings on the menu and one special this time was a crudo of scallops that was truly excellent. It would have been a perfect offering at a Michelin starred restaurant in France. The sweetbreads were also good but could have been flattened a bit before cooking. They were nevertheless quite tender. The restaurant is known for its generous wine pours and fair wine prices. It's a neighborhood gem.

    Unpleasant experience, reserved a widow table , did not get one , wanted to be away from the Bar crowd. We ended up right next to the bar, half drunk bar patrons were standing on top of us, and even tried to use our table to rest their drinks on. Probably will not return even though the food was great and the service was excellent also

    Always good. Service and food quality are so very predictably good. Excellent escargot, kale salad pretty good (croutons were meh), good scallops, great fries! Please bring back the mini baguette and regular butter! I’m guessing their contract with Veuve has expired, based on pricing, but the Rose from Willamette was outstanding! Super energized venue today!
