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

The restaurant offers a nice variety of offerings. All of our food was well prepared and nicely presented: shrimp cocktail, oysters, roasted beat salad, venison, steamed salmon and skirt steak. While the bar scene downstairs can be overwhelmingly noisy, one can opt to dine in the relatively quitter upstairs room. The waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. They have an... More

I went for late lunch my husband and there was no one to seat us. We had to wait for a couple of minutes until we volunteered to seat ourselves then when I raised my hand for one of the waiters, a nice lady approached us saying she worked there and took our order wrong for drinks. I had sliders... More

We had come to Brass Rail for a private party on Saturday, Jan. 11. The service staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. The food was impeccable. I had a nicely seasoned grilled salmon. The chocolate mousse was rich and satisfying. I would definitely want to return for a regular lunch or dinner. I had peeked at the wine list and... More

The upstairs seating was an excellent location if you are looking for a quiet spot to speak with business associates and enjoy very good food and spirits. There were no complaints about the food and the waiters were excellent. Will go back again with my family.
