A talented chef, creative cuisine, and fresh local seasonal ingredients make this a go-to place for excellent dining, even for people who live beyond the borders of this historic, New England prep school town. Having spent a good deal of time in France, I'm continually impressed by the well-executed Mediterranean flare.

Nice seasonal menu that always offers something new. Have come here with friends who love it so much they eat here a few times a week. I have had the burger special once and the steak dish the last time. My husband has had the fish dishes both times and enjoyed them immensely. Ate with large group last time and... More

Nothing worse that spending a lot of money on a meal and leaving hungry - That can happen here. While the dishes are expertly prepared and stunning to look at, the amount of food you get for your dollar is way below acceptable. I ordered a featured scallop entree dish and it came with one large scallop in the dish.... More

I have been a regular customer of the Brasserie 28 since opening day. The restaurant welcomes you with a socially fun front sidewalk patio (in the warm season) and a sparkling social atmosphere in the front entrance of the restaurant. High top tables and rubbing elbows lends for making new acquaintances. Walk on past the bar area of the restaurant... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Andover and we have been here numerous times over the past few years. The portions are small (which I like), but the food is always excellent. We prefer a small portion of great food which is a better value than a large plate of mediocre food at a lower price in our opinion. Because... More

I am a regular at Brasserie 28 and it is consistently good. The beer, wine, and drink choices are constantly changing as is the menu. You can do a salad and flatbread, entrée, cheese plate, or have the best burger in town. Matt is a really inventive chef. The portions are on the smaller side, but they should be. Some... More

Only restaurant in Andover/N. Andover that I would give 5 stars for food and experience. Nice bar also. Try the Hendricks gin and tonic with lime and mint.

We made reservations and were seated promptly by a very nice hostess. - Ordered a carafe of red sangria which all of us loved The bad: - We were... More

Food was good, service good, but portions were laughable. Paid $19 for a pasta plate that was described as having chicken, ricotta, mushrooms . Since we ordered appetizers, I split the dish with my friend thinking for that amount of money it would probably be a large dish. Wrong. What was on my plate would have barely filed a cup... More

Difficult to believe that this restaurant has been open for three years. Begin at the bar...The worst and priciest Margarita ever imbibed by me..Then at dinner, did I say "dinner"? We waited for hours for our meals, and once they came, several of them were cold. Most of us were so hungry by that time, it almost didn't matter. It... More
