Very few places can match the steak frites served at Brasserie. The interior is minimal yet elegant and the staff are friendly & knowledgable. Highly recommended.

After many steak frites eaten all around the world - and, of course, in Paris - I can say that one of the best you get at the Brasserie just off Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. The other food we had this time round was ok (half lobster to start, Crab Cakes), but the steak frites beats it all. The... More

The food here is great as is the service. The decor is very modern and comfortable. The entrees are really nice. The French onion soup is really good and the duck is incredible. The French lemonade cocktail is really good.

Very clean lines and minimalistic furnishings. Not the warm, charming French restaurant feel we were expecting. The food was "ok" but nothing special.

We came on a Saturday with a party of 13, which included 5 kids under 7. They handled us well, with all the kids, but they do not have a children's menu and they didn't have "kids cups". Overall, the food was nicely portioned, and tasted really good. We did get half of our food, and then waited about 8... More

We reserved a table for friends and had no idea what to expect. We ordered a bunch of different appetizers and drinks from the super Serbian waitress, she was great and should be recognized for her talent in service. The food was good and the deserts were really good, we enjoyed everything; Muscles, Crab balls, fries, soup, spinach and some... More

We had an enjoyable meal with another couple at Brasserie on Saturday night. We had a reservation at 7:30 and the restaurant was about half full but filled up while we were there. I had a delicious sole for dinner and our guests enjoyed the fillet mignon. The service seemed to have slipped since the last time I visited. The... More

My husband ordered the breakfast, I ordered the filet mignon w fried egg. His lemon ricotta breakfast pancakes and scrambled eggs and bacon were good. He did not notice either lemon or ricotta flavors in his pancakes. He ran out of the fruit compote before 1/2 his pancakes were eaten, but because he is careful w how many carbs he... More

Long standing place with crummy food and OK service. We used to go all the time as the one plus is easy for hotel area and open late, but that was a long time ago, there are better options now. Food is so-so at best, bad is probably a better adjective. Service is not good. It is a chain restaurant... More
