We had a business dinner here, just picked it based on the reviews here onsite and the food was really good! We were with 8 people, all picked something different and we didn't have to wait that long. The crabcakes and burger, mmm my mouth is watering again! The place was crowded and very very noisy but the quality food... More

We stopped by Brasserie for breakfast on an early Friday, around 7:30 in the morning. Apparently, Brasserie, being located in the Seagram building, is quite popular with the local business community, for by the time we were leaving, around 8:30 the place was packed. The interior is very modern with rather relaxing ambiance, though a bit too much of an... More

I met a friend here while in town. It happened to be Restaurant Week and we both ordered the special prix fixe menu. I had the potato leek soup and my friend had French onion; both were excellent. I had the Coq Au Vin, again, excellent and my companion enjoyed his salmon. I would say the dessert was fine and... More

crowded and busy , but very good service and fair prices , both for starters and main courses - interesting interior design and altough the place is below street level without natural light it does not give you the impression to dine in a cellar . I havent been here for many years, almost forgot about it but will return... More

I had lunch at Brasserie last week. I had salad and two diet cokes and it cost me $50 dollars. Which is fine if the salad was in anyway memorable or at least had some flavour. The service was what you would expect in a bad movie about stereo-typical waiter service in Paris. I like modern décor but this place... More

I did not have a reservation for Sunday Brunch, but I went early and was politely seated. Not until two "gentlemen" jumped in front of me in the coat check line. Welcome to NYC. I suppose I did expect the staff to notice that... That said, it got very busy and I did really enjoy the roasted beets. The pasta... More

Stopped in here for a late afternoon coffee and snack. We were the ONLY ones in the place and it smelled like ammonia - must have been cleaning time. The service was a bit abrupt - I felt like we were simply bothering them. Would pass it up.

TripAdvisor asks anyone who gives a restaurant 5 stars if "this is one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant"? I never know how to answer that. Yes, it was a great meal, but one of the best? I've had too many "best" meals to know. However, I can say that I've never had a bad meal... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
