It's closing tonight we were told as we ordered!
Would have preferred another restaurant to celebrate a birthday as we shared a dining room with sad staff losing their jobs .
Food was good, but of course not everything was not available--sbraga would no longer be.
Little else to say except a more classy and honest departure could have been communicated!
Excellent, unpretentious, well-priced dining experience. Each course was special and perfectly executed, service was prompt but not fawning. Appreciate the thoughtful vegetarian options, even for the amuse bouche. Would definitely recommend and return.
We enjoyed dinner at Sbraga. We arrived after a film preview at the Kimmel. We were greeted by very nice hostess and shown to our table. The table was small and one side was a bench, the other side had a single chair. It was a bit difficult to have a conversation because we were close to the other tables and there was lots of chatter. The gruyere popover was good, but it would have been better if it was warm or, better yet, right out of the oven. The service was fine and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the small plates. The dessert was delicious!
Excellent meal and service. We got a complementary goodie bag with a cookie, small copy of the tasting menu, and dessert coupon for our Anniversary. Will definitely return!
I've eaten here a few times, but was sadly disappointed with the change in wine pairing and the lamb dish. They are "weaning out" the select wines for the pairing and it's just whatever they serve by the glass. The lamb dish has either changed or I don't remember it being so basic, but it was basically a grilled piece of meat that tasted like beef with barely cooked red onion and some seasoning. Everything else was delicious, as usual.
We ate at the bar. The food and drink were all excellent. The new cheese dessert was an innovative cheese option with an almost apple pie like presentation. We always love the salad option to start, and it's hard to choose just one of the pasta options. Thanks to Alexis for taking care of us.
Loved everything about Sbraga. Great food and atmosphere.
I took my wife for her birthday and we could not be happier. We both ordered separate items from the Pre-Fixe menu so that we could taste all that we could. I told Yulee (I think that is the pronunciation of my waiters name) that each item that came out set the expectation for the next and each item did not disappoint. The food, service and atmosphere was outstanding. We are already making plans to take friends who are traveling into town in the next coming months. Now I have a place to brag about to take them! They take us to outstanding places when we visit their cities.
Our second visit to Sbraga was completely satisfying. The prix fixe menu offered great variety in each course and my companion and I each felt we had made the best choices. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable and the other staff were sensitive and courteous, not clearing our plates before we had both finished - a failing in too many places we visit. There was just the barest feeling that once we had placed our orders a train was coming down the track that would bring dishes at intervals a bit faster than we would have preferred, but we were not uncomfortable. The variety of wines by the glass was sufficient for our purposes.
This is not an inexpensive outing, but Sbraga delivers full value for the price.
The presence of the chef/owner at the pass - always a welcome sight - gave us an opportunity to express our pleasure in person.
Quite underwhelming in all aspects. Food is okay: the famous popover is cold; half of the dishes are way too salty, including the espagot soup, the octopus, etc. Our table is wobbly so i asked the server to fix it. He did; but acted like he did me a huge favor and never apologized for the problem. Ambience is not good. Tables are set so close to each other that i felt i was having dinner in a party of 6 instead of just the two of us. A business venue not a romantic one.
