High quality food well prepared

Food and Wine was ot top Quality. Others in our party raved about the mixed drinks. Mushroom soup was supurb. All portions are of smaller size, however the food was satisfying and allowed for Desert. Not a cheap night out but the food was quite memorable.

Small, slow service, not well lit, and food not up to standard. Tried it once, won't go back. Tables also too close together.

I truly love this place! Everything I have ordered has been very tasty and unique. This isn't your average suburban eatery by any means. The food is super fresh and creative. Its food done properly that most others miss. The wine list is quite diverse with most offered being quite reasonable! The cocktail list is very fun and creative as... More

I went out with a few friends the other night and was really looking forward to a spectacular hamburger and Brasserie 28 always delivers food wise but oddly, on this night, they were out of them. Instead, I was forced to opt for a great steak at three times the price. I would've given the food a full five stars... More

Colin is great, always coming up with creative new drinks. Often I will not know what I want but Colin is able to ask questions and help figure out what I might be in the mood for. This is the best place in town to drop in to have a drink and we stop whenever we get a chance with... More

Every dish was devoured by our large group. We were seated at a fun round booth in the bar area which was super spacious and comfortable. It was a fun and lively bar scene but that didn't hinder our ability to converse with each other. We started with a bunch of different wine flights from around the world which was... More

I went to Brasserie 28 with 8 other coworkers. Our server was pleasant and fairly quick to take out drink orders once we had all been seated just after 18:00. Things slowed down a bit after that, however. Dinner/app orders were taken right about 18:30. We had mostly all looked at the online menu prior to arriving, but the half... More

Overall, then don't disappoint. Creative drinks, and decent food. Get their sandwich special which is usually creative and doesn't break the bank

I like going there to meet friends for drinks. A little on the expensive side but nice atmosphere. Great selection and knowledge of wine.

This is my favorite local spot due to the consistency in their food. The menu is creative and changes quite frequently. The food is prepared expertly and is very healthy. You don't leave feeling regretful or bloated. The wine list is great and I always enjoy the wine flights and they just added beer flights which I was excited to... More
