We had a meal here with family late on Friday evening. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The good was lovely. We we're still discussing how tasty it was the next day, always a good sign!

Perfect for a grown up drink with no students bingeing on their grant money to spoil the atmosphere! This has to be the only bar in Taunton that 1. Serves you cider in a frozen glass, and 2. They ask you which gin you would prefer in your G'n'T. Friendly, attentive staff and a welcoming atmosphere, next time we will... More

Not that busy about five tables occupied so we expected prompt service but that was not to be. Taken to our table and given our menues but then had to wait about 15 minutes before our... More

Think of the 1940's nay think of the 1950's and you think of Brazz - the service is excellent the staff from the maître D to the waitresses cannot do enough for you and the food is truly scrumptious from a varied menu - please make a visit and enjoy!

Eventually found an opportunity to visit for lunch following several recommendations from friends. Had an enjoyable meal, of typical 'brasserie' options, surrounded by like minded folk. Good to see a wide range of people and ages in the restaurant, and a good number of willing staff. Clearly a popular place for couples and business lunches alike. Upsides: Efficient service, good...

We have been to Brazz many times and always had a superb experience. Last night we were a little disappointed. The barmaid struggled to serve two of the three drinks as they were not mainstream requests. My smoked salmon was the smallest serving I had ever seen, 4 x 2" thin strips and not worth £7.95. The service was too... More

A very busy restaurant, great atmosphere, and superb service from our waiter Tom. I had the sharing fish platter starter but as a full meal. Perfect for lunch. Bread was freshly baked and delicious.
