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

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
