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

We had a great meal...one of the best...here recently. The prices aren't cheap...but then again, who wants cheap tasting food and poor service? They do have a good appetizer policy where they allow you to get certain appetizers with an entree for a modest "upgrade fee". The food was delicious, large portions and nice n' hot when served. Our server,... More

This restaurant has so much more potential. Service lacked the smile- sums it up. Being in the service industry myself, Brass City Bistro has a convenient location off the highway, great cozy decor, and nice portions. But a server can make or break your experience, and that she did. From the onset our server seemed bothered by our first time... More

Met with a friend for drinks and a lite dinner. We ended up sitting at the bar ( by choice) which was very pleasant. We both ended up ordering the onion soup, which was very good and filling. It had a very tasty broth with a good amount of onions, generous melted cheese and a bonus of frizzle opinions on... More

My sweetheart and I had a coupon from restaurant.com which I purchased in November. I had seen that they offer a fixed price dinner for two, which included a bottle of wine, for $50. It is every Monday and Tuesday night. We started with a bottle of Pinot Grigio wine, and our shared appetizer was broccoli rabe with sausage. The... More

Step inside (or sit out on the new patio weather permitting) and let TJ and his staff treat you like you should be. From the service and staff, to the atmosphere and the food - excellent doesn't say enough. Whether seated in the bar area or dining room you're treated and served well. Well kept, well managed and well worth... More
