I thought the food was good, but on the pricey side. Dinner for 2 was close to $300

The Brass Rail is an excellent choice for a quiet dinner, either for couples or for groups of friends. In the evening there's always a lively bar scene, yet the dining room is set off from the bar area so that the noise level for diners generally remains moderate. On this occasion, unfortunately, one of our main courses, coq au vin, was very disappointing. The dish, which was among the specials for the evening, had been very over-reduced leading to gelatinous and extremely salty result. To their credit, the restaurant offered to replace the dish and also gave us complementary desserts for our table. Based on numerous prior visits to The Brass Rail, we're convinced that our somewhat unsatisfactory experience on this particular evening was a fluke. We will continue to patronize The Brass Rail and to recommend the restaurant to friends.

Horrific service with a terrible attitude. Clearly uninterested and couldn’t be bothered. Completely neglected the entire meal. It began with nearly 25minute wait to take our order. Followed by 15 minute wait to get our 2nd drink. Ended with not even being offered a dessert menu until we asked. Really unfortunate as the food was great.

Stopped in for lunch and a special date on a Sunday. The place is attractive, friendly service. We chose several small plates and liked everything: mussels, calamari, crab salad, rock shrimp, and then a cheese plate. Nice wine and beer selection. Definitely recommend, and will come back.

Food was great. Party had pork chop, skirt steak, chicken parm and duck. All were great. Duck was crispy on the outside and good just right. Reasonably priced. Service was excellent

A varied menu, there were many interesting and creative food choices. My party of four were all happy with their food. Tasty, well prepared, presented attractively & well portioned we had no complaints. The drinks were also creative and enjoyable.
The only complaint that we did have was a 25 minute wait for our table. Our reservation was made well ahead (at least 2 weeks). Management were aware of our wait & were accommodating giving us our first round of drinks on the house.

We will definitely return

It was a great place for lunch with friend who I had not seen for a while. It was quite so we could have a conversation. The little fireplace was nice near our table. Food was creative and good. The service was great - not being rushed.

Very pleasant dinner with friends. The prices and the menu have always made this place attractive and the Restaurant Week Menu offered great value. Food and service were topnotch. My only quibble - ditch the waiter with the giant pepper mill hovering over my salad. Just put a nice pepper mill on the table and let me do it myself. I thought the pepper mill act went out 20 years ago. We had a very pleasant meal and evening with friends - that's what its all about for me.

We went for restaurant week. Only one in three of us ordered from restaurant week menu. Braised beef was excellent; fish appetizer was ok. Apple taret was good as well. Ordered Branzino on regular dinner menu wish was excellent. Appetizer of endive salad too chewy but kale salad excellent. We enjoyed the evening tremendously and will return again. Great neighborhood gem.

Way to expensive for what you get. One drink from the bar requires taking out a loan. It has dropped a notch in food quality this past year.

Never disappoints. Even on New Years Eve the service was excellent, and the food was wonderful . We had a good time
We were not rushed even though we ordered burgers and sandwiches.. The jalapeño cheddar burger was a favorite with our gang, The salmon in the salmon sand which was done perfectly, and the sauce had just the right amount of spice. It is a regular on our list.
