Dinner after theatre, wonderful evening

We ate here with two other couples after a play at the Rep. It's hard to find a place that works for everyone, and sometimes it's hard to find a reservation for 6 people. We were seated promptly and had a nice evening of conversation. It was nice to come back here when it was not the dead of... read more

Went to Braise for the first time to try it out. We were greeted and sat immediately with our reservations upon our arrival. Our server arrived shortly after we were seated and took our drink order which was presented promptly. One of the first things that struck us with the menu was that they charge you for the bread. But... More

Braise has seasonal farm to table small plates, local drink options and the menu changes daily. Our server was very helpful and offered dish recommendations. They have a variety small plates that you can mix and match to create your meal or large plates for one person. (Tasty veggie options too.) Each small plate is about $10 and the 2... More

My husband and I enjoyed splitting 3 small plates and also one main entrée (they will split that for you also as I had heard the chicken was fabulous - it was!) We really did not know what to expect as we have been to other farm-to-table restaurants and really were not impressed but this one surpassed our expectations for... More

Excellent service and food. Probably the best meal we've had in over a year. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. See you again soon.

Two couples had dinner on a Saturday night; nice wine list and atmosphere. Trouble started when the server tried to explain the menu; she spoke so fast that we had to continually ask her to repeat herself. When we made the wine selection she said they may be out out of that one and then recommended a completely different type... More

Intimate restaurant with adventurous menu that is very well executed. Service is friendly and well-meaning if not totally polished. I will NOT visit Milwaukee and miss Braise! Truly a MUST VISIT!

I always write reviews of places i travel and thought I should really write one for my favorite place where I actually dine a lot in my hometown. If you are visiting Milwaukee then Braise is a must - it's farm to table and truly just fabulous. Typically I would never order chicken at a restaurant because it's chicken and... More

Food is always delicious. Atmosphere is 'jovial' and a bit noisy. Servers always pleasant and a bit quirky at times (but it is Walker's point restaurant).

This restaurant specializes in small plates of deliciously creative dishes. You can just keep sampling until you are full. We must have ordered 12 different plates for our group of 6 and had a great memorable time
