Actually I think they can do better too. The food is not bad and neither is the service, it is all just sort of dull and passionless. There seemed to be little pride or purpose to the place. It all adds up to just another sort of generic restaurant. It is also way to loud downstairs to have any shot... More

Went there for lunch and even though it was just the two of us, we decided to make reservations beforehand in case it got quite full. As it turned out, we were the only ones there. So I don't think you need to make reservations, at least on weekdays. Staff was attentive and food was of high standards. I enjoyed... More

We visited here one evening in July to meet up with friends who lived in the area. It was very simple and cozy. They had a simple bar menu with great appetizers & entrees we could share with one another. Fairly decent prices. Bartender and servers were attentive and respectful.

Decided on trying their Sunday price fixe lunch which offered nice choices. Great selection of beer on tap, too. I had salmon and my friend had a goat cheese omlett. We had outdoor seating that I always enjoy and our waitress was attentive but not too much. Look forward to going back. I highly recommend it.

Bartenders are very friendly and know how to make a cocktail! Delicious sazerac made to perfection. Food was good to. Very good calamari, delicious brussels sprouts and bacon pizza. Old time bar with that old time feeling!

The Brass Rail from the outside looks like any other American eatery with an outdoor space in an urban landscape. I love it when I'm wrong and I love it when I'm pleasantly surprised. While waiting for friends, I sat by the bar area. The service was friendly and came by often to check in on us. Once my friends... More

We had dinner at the brass rail, brasserie downstairs and were a little underwhelmed, but had a nice enough evening, without the restaurant screaming back at us to come back as soon as possible. We were seated quickly and our waiter was as you would expect, a little friendly and attentive enough without being intrusive or slow. Drinks selection is... More

he Restaurant was remodeled after a fire. They have 2 floors with a long bar on the first.In good weather there is also outdoor seating with the glass window opened. Meals are very good, but a bit pricey. Brunch is also available. If you like muffins, then this is your place.

We decided to have Brunch after our trip to Carlos bake house, of Cake Boss fame. This place was definitely the place to be but the food was quite mediocre. I suppose if you are in a group, the sun is shining and you drink plenty of cocktails the food is unimportant, but I was hungry and my food was... More
