I love Brasa! The food is excellent, the atmosphere inviting, and the location is awesome. It's the perfect place to eat for an eater like me who likes a little bit of everything - You can pick serving sizes, which means you can virtually order a "small" of four or five things to satisfy every taste desire you have.

Four of us dined for lunch. Food was enjoyed by all. One person raved of the red beans and rice, another of the chicken, a child devoured his mac and cheese, yucca was shared by all. As for me, I elected the small portion and had a side salad, yams and pulled pork. The portions were great plenty for me.... More

Came in for a weekday lunch before the rush. One lunch special allowed you to pick a meat (rotisserie chicken, pork or beef) or fish, one side dish (lots of healthy or comfy foods), and a choice of corn bread/garlic bread/Mesa bread. The rotisserie chicken was very tasty and two portions was generous for me. The side salad was served... More

We dined outside on the patio for a weekday lunch, so the restaurant was not full which helped get seated and served right away. We ordered family style. The food was brought out in under 10 minutes. We loved all our selections! The serving sizes were small (compared the current US standards these are more a la European standards) -... More

To start with it took 20 minutes to get our drinks after we were seated. The waitress was not around often. Then the tea was flavored with fruits that made it taste nothing like iced tea (not mentioned on the menu). The collard greens were good but the catfish had a slightly fishy flavor to it. The home made ginger... More

Brasa has an amazing food selection for the types of foods I grew up eating which is very hard to find these days. To top it all off, the menu offers HEALTHY selections that are organic and locally owned. The chicken and catfish are my fav meats while I do enjoy the mac n cheese, the collard greens, and the...

I never expected to find Southern style cooking indeed, soul food, in St. Paul. Brasa is a gem of a restaurant- there isn't a bad dish to be had here. The red beans and rice, yucca, mac and cheese, masa cakes, cornbread, pulled pork, braised beef, salads and brussel sprouts (yes, you heard me) are personal favorites. The homemade pepper... More

6 of us enjoyed "Grazing" for dinner. Shared a couple of bottles of wine, had a couple of Homemade sodas, and many different "Plates." If memory serves me right, and it really doesn't matter, we started with a pork belly, Crispy Yuca w/ Citrus & Garlic, Fried Plantains, & Homemade Chips & Guacamole. Moved on to a lovely apple, nut... More

This is a great way for people to try a little bit of everything. Order the medium size because the smalls are too small to share. The roast chicken looked amazing and was really a popular item among the other diners. I enjoyed the mac and cheese and the creamed spinach. The homemade ginger soda was very good. I wasn't... More

We were in town for a CrossFit seminar and found this restaurant nearby and went for dinner. The menu is awesome, a lot of protein and vegetable options. Most items are gluten free and those that aren't are listed on the top of the menu. We are not 100% gluten free but do have friends that are and we also... More
