The Prix Fixe menu for brunch is excellent and the price makes it incredible. From the coffee to the fresh squeezed juices to the eggs Benedict to the crepes it was fabulous. The stairway makes you feel like you are making a grand entrance!

The Braserie never disappoints for food and service. Can be a little noisy at times but the buzz and well-executed dishes make putting up with a little noise, worth the effort. They also do a fun happy hour with snacks.

Our lunch for four this past Saturday at the Brasserie was outstanding. Every dish was great, the service was excellent. The Onion Soup was the best I've had since the last time we were here.

This was my first dinner experience. The waitstaff was lovely as always but I found my experience wanting. For a morning business breakfast the lively noise coming from the food service and the animated conversations is somehow more endearing. At night the noise from the bar seems intrusive and the menu less imaginative than other choices. It is still one... More

New York is full of fine restaurants; it is arguably, in the Top 3 Food Capitals of the World. At the center of this food mecca, is Brasserie off E 53rd between Park and Lex. Designed by now-famous architects (The High Line, et al), the interior space is utterly spectacular. I did not have high expectations for the food, since... More

This restaurant is an absolute jewel. The decor is the definition of understated style and taste. Looks more like it belongs in Stockholm than America. Quietly beautiful. We went for a family brunch with friends. Low piano music, good food, and lovely surrounds did not disappoint. I'd like to go back in the evening and sit up at the beautiful... More

well, at first I was impressed by the elegant modern feeling which I didn't expect from a restaurant called Brasserie which suggests a bit more comfy but hey. the service was great, my raw bar plate was great (but not excellent if you are used to oysters in France)! my husband's crab cakes as well but then the scallops which...

Stopped in on a Sunday for a quick bite. I had Lobster Bisque, my wife had French Onion Soup. Both dishes were good. Nice place, friendly people.

My wife and I returned to the restaurant after several years during restaurant week. The food was quite good but the positive experience stopped there. The restaurant was refrigerated so much that it was uncomfortable. It also had a distinct lack of privacy as tables are crammed together and it is difficult to have a decent conversation. We will not... More

I've gone to many business breakfasts and lunches at Brasserie over many years. The food is consistently good and the service is generally efficient. The restaurant can sometimes be a bit loud which can make discussions difficult with parties of more than four.
