Nice menu options and great vegetable risotto! Good selection of drinks and desserts. We were a group of six, most for the first time and everyone was pleased. Atmosphere is upscale.

I was here with friends a few nights ago for dinner before a show at the Palace Theater. They picked the restaurant, and am I ever glad they chose Brass City Bistro! We had delicious drinks - plum cosmo for me and one friend raved about the eggnog martini that was a special. We had bruschetta that was wonderful -... More

went there for dinner last time and was very disappointed in the food, service and mostly the price. It was 2 of us, 1 bottle of wine, no apps and my dinner was a penne ala vodka with shrimp and bill was over $150. OMG.

Love the meals-my favorite is the NY Sirloin and Baked Stuffed Shrimp. Absolutely filling. We usually start with the BCB Brushetta Promodore, Stuffed Mushrooms and Clams Casino...the best!! Portions large enough to enjoy a second helping at home. My favorite stop for a Cosmopolitan (check for the Martini of the day). Go single or with a family. Mellow atmosphere. Delicious... More

My wife and I ate at BCB on Saturday around noon prior to going to a show at the Waterbury Palace Theater. The inside of the restaurant is very nicely decorated and felt very comforting. I selected the location after consulting reviews here on TA. It is a family run business - the mother of the owner greeted and served... More

This is a nice restaurant and I had been here before for lunch. The food was very good and a large portion, service was excellent. My only criticism is the prices. I would prefer the portions not be as large and the prices lower. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant.

Drove 45 minutes to meet family here. I would suggest not eating much that day and expect leftovers. Portions big enough for two. We had the antipasti to start and probably one of the best baked stuffed mushrooms I've ever had. So good I had the baked stuffed sole. It comes with soup or salad and bread to start. We... More

If you judge this restaurant by its presence in a parking lot, you'll be mistaken. Service was fantastic. Attentive but not intrusive. We were able to get a table alongside the bar. Dress is not casual but not formal either - dress shorts in the summer were perfect. Too hot the day we visited to enjoy the patio, but a... More
