Closed and phone disconnected. This is the second time in the last couple months that I checked the place out while staying in the area.

I have never been disappointed with a meal at Brutole!!! The food is amazing! The creme brulee is fantastic too! Drinks are delish as well. Waitstaff has always been great too and very friendly! Can't wait to go back!

We have friends who chose this restaurant for dinner. While the wait service was great, the food was mediocre at best. It was not surprising to us then that when these same friends suggested another visit, we found the restaurant has been closed for over a month! No loss to North Shore Dining! We did check this website prior to... More

Wonderful food and great service but an odd location. It is an upscale restaurant but people would not know this by just looking at the location...it is adjacent to a Hotel 6. They have a large bar area and a private room for the perfect small get together. It is highly recommended for both lunch and dinner.

Based on the reviews I had high hopes. But unfortunately I was sorely disappointed both the service and the food. I ordered medium rare swordfish and got overcooked over-salted mediocre presentation. Waitress did not come over to check how was my meal. After over 10 minutes I had to flag down another waiter to ask for something more edible. I... More

My husband and I decided torturous Brutole after hearing several people talk highly of this place. The interior is very attractive, nice bar, brick oven, and attention to detail. We started our dinner with salads, iceberg wedge with blue cheese and a warm goat cheese salad with field greens, walnuts, pears, and strawberries. Very nice. The bread is served warm... More

Though we have never been to this restaurant, we chose to have our Anniversary dinner there. Unfortunately, when I called for a reservation, they were totally booked for a private function. After a short deliberation I called them back asking if they could accommodate us in the afternoon. He said sure, come on down. With no trouble (GPS) we found... More

This place is hard to find! We had to set our GPS to find it but it was worth the time. The first time the food was fabulous, my husband got the Ribeye Steak with mushroom, onions and gravy. I decided to try the Chip encrusted Haddock, with Asparagras Rissoto. The meal was fabulous everything was cooked to perfection. Our... More

Pleasantly surprised to find Brutole in Danvers. Hidden back off the busy highway of rt 1. Lovely atmosphere and friendly service. The shrimp fettuccini with baby spinach was quite tasty. The others friends enjoyed the swordfish and haddock. The risotto was excellent. Looking forward to our next visit.

The location next to a Motel 6 makes u wonder about what to expect but you will be pleasantly surprised. The mussel appetizer is terrific, all of the the steaks are amazing and the swordfish is wonderful. The service is top notch and all of the wait staff are well trained about the menu offerings!
