My wife and I were seated at a small table only a foot, (literally), away from another table on our left.. No privacy for either party. Nearly impossible to reach my seat as the right side was a wall. When asked about drinks my wife ordered a glass of wine. I enjoy a well made Manhattan prior to dinner. I... More

The food is creative and the restaurant has something for everyone particularly with regard to their soups. Having been there twice now, once for lunch and once for dinner, I can say that service is a problem. The servers are slow to take orders, do not follow up or refill glasses and they forget frequently about their guests. Go only... More

Went on a snowy weeknight early, only 1 other table occupied yet we ended up being there close to 90 minutes, waiter was nice but nervous and did not explain anything, made us slightly uncomfortable, and there was a poor flow the entire service, said we needed a quick minute to decide on a drink, he came back close to...

Very nice restaurant, great atmosphere. Second time here, enjoyed the food, but was disappointed that they were out of scallops from their main menu. Poor chef planning.

Haven't been to Brodo since I moved out of the area over 3 years ago. I went the other day with my aunt and had a wonderful lunch. Service was excellent and the food was great. My aunt had the flight of soup and loved them all. I had the tenderloin sandwich which was very tasty. I tend to rate... More

From some of the other posted experiences of diners, we were somewhat apprehensive about this restaurant, but what a pleasant surprise. I guess the term ".... in the beholder..." applies to many. This unassuming restaurant provides a simple ambiance, excellent food with attentive service at a fair and reasonable price. We recently visited for dinner and found the pork loin... More

I work near Brodo and have had lunch here a number of times. I've not had the menu items which disappointed recent reviewers but the ones I do typically order are consistently well-prepared - e.g., caesar salad with grilled chicken, foccacias (the grilled chicken with red onion, roasted garlic and (yes) goat cheese is especially tasty), cajun sole filet, puff...

Two friends and myself decided to have lunch here during this past week....my friends each ordered a salmon salad and I had the goat cheese salad. Their salmon was about the size of a 50 cent piece and my field greens were very skimpy. We waited about 30 minutes after we placed our order for the salads to come. There... More

We just came back from Brodo and our experience was very disappointing. The goat cheese had no taste at all, my Wellington came back well done when i had asked for pink. The best were our drinks and the bread. We had a view to the kitchen, and it looked dirty. We will not go back. We are used to... More

Creative menu. House-made soups. Grilled salmon salad was delish ! Leisurely service. Lunch time is quiet, good for conversation. Located on Rt 5. Parking lot in back. Attractive neighborhood with small shops. Wine list available.
