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.

Came in for dinner on Tuesday night, the place was pretty busy. I was meeting my husband but since I could not see him in the dinning room, host was more then happy to help out by looking up where he was sitting and escorting me to the table. The service was excellent so cant complain there, now on to... More

I'm probably too old for Brasserie's power bar scene, but more than happy to partake in the dining...Room is unabashedly modernist, french food is consistently well executed, service is professional - works for business best, but personal too. Brasserie is probably not a place you fall in love with - it's more of a place you rely on - you... More

We both ordered favorites... escargot, Boulliabaise, and cassoulet and we both were sooo disappointed! the escargot was an overcooked stew, the boulliabaise was tasteless and the cassoulet not at all the fabulous French dish!! We had been looking forward to this meal but will not go back again!

The hotel recommended it on the Sunday afternoon we arrived. It was just down the street. Didn't expect much, but what a pleasant surprise. For $19 I had a mimosa, the best "french" onion soup I've ever had (and I order it often) and "french" toast (keeping the french theme going) that gave that dish a whole new meaning. It... More

Modern/whacky interior. Service is excellent and the food choice good. Ranges from the ultra healthy to the cooked breakfasts, pancakes, waffles etc. Good smoothies. We were tourists amongst lots of business people but felt at home nonetheless.

The food at Brasserie is better than it has to be. As I watched diners come and go, I thought to myself, "this is like some kind of upscale bankers' cafeteria." The interior remains visually stunning, very different than any other restaurant I know of. The design, unfortunately, contributes to a very loud environment, so hopefully your business colleagues have... More

Excellent choice for brunch. Can't beat 19 dollars for this two course meal and alcohol drink. What makes the cheap cost even sweeter is the food is amazing. Order the mushroom crepes....excellent! And french toast and the raclette so very very good. TIP: don't forget to sign up for the "birthday club" so you can get a coupon for up... More
