If you are in search of a great gluten free meal this is the spot! Great chicken and pork! Yams were excellent as is the fried yucca. Super cool spot in the heart of St Paul.

I am pretty sure at some point I would get tired of creamed spinach, collard greens, shredded pork, corn bread, plantains and candied yams...but if I could eat this stuff every day, I'd be delighted. I have tried the pulled chicken sandwich and the chicken in pepper gravy too. Service is very good, menu options are plentiful but not overwhelming... More

The food. It's all about the food, it's freshness and savoriness, the simple variety, the genuine roots to other cultural food paradigms, the complete satisfaction I experience nutritionally...not to mention the cornbread...which is like dessert.

This place has awesome creole style comfort food that can be ordered in small plates so you can try a large variety of dishes. Almost every one I have tried has been great and the restaurant has huge doors that open up in the summer to make the restaurant feel like a huge patio.

My family and I visited Brasa just before the holidays and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We took our son who is almost two with us and he loved the place. We did arrive at about 4:30 on a Saturday and easily got a table, however the place quickly filled around 5pm. The staff was great with our son and the... More

I have been here a few times and am always amazed by how great the food is! Everything is always freshly made, natural and organic! I Had the brisket sandwhich with a side of Mac and Cheese and shared the chips and guac with some frineds. I highly recommend their house made ginger ales!

I liked this place because you can order all the mains and sides in small, medium or large portions and share family style. Lets you try lots of different things. The food was really good, especially the pulled pork, homemade mac and cheese and the friend yuca. - really yummy. I would describe the cuisine as comfort food. Casual eatery.... More

Since my last review of this place I have dined here about 10 times. I mentioned that the service was lacking but the food was fab in my initial review and I'm coming back to touch on this subject. Nearly every time I've visited Brasa the service has been poor. I love the food and the location works well for... More

Our group of four went to Brasa in St. Paul with high expectations but came away disappointed. The food and service were pretty good, but not good enough to offset the high noise level and fast-food atmosphere. We are old-fashioned, and expect our meals to come in a sequence: an appetizer, a salad, a main dish and dessert. Together with... More

This is THE go-to place for delicious gluten free food that comes that way 'naturally.' That is, it's not about subbing or paying $2 for GF bread instead of regular. Almost everything is GF AND is delicious. Now if only they hadn't changed happy hour to ending at 5 instead of 6. Or, put fish tacos on the regular menu...... More
