Had a business lunch at Brasserie recently and it was excellent. The location and service were very good and the restaurant was very busy. The only issue is the modern open decor is somewhat noisy unless you can get a booth. Menu has some interesting versions of familiar dishes and is reasonable (for mid-town NewYork).

Came here for lunch with my colleagues during restaurant week. I ordered Watermelon Salad, Fumé Poached Atlantic Cod & Chocolate Flourless Torte. The salad was light and very good, the cod was very fresh but could use more flavor and the chocolate torte was great to end the meal. Service was quick and very attentive.

Went for restaurant week. Good choices on the menu and of course, as always the food was great. My friend had the petit filet mignon which was excellent as was my salmon. Both done just right, moist and tasty. If you don't want the light three course, the regular menu has excellent offerings as well. Restaurant week special had a... More

An ultra modern interior is surprising for the name. Was expecting a French style interior. Hotel had reserved for us. We were seated in a giant banquet seat. Sunday brunch was a real NYC bargain at $19. Included was choice of mimosa, Bellini or bloody mary. Great variety of starters and mains. I enjoyed a very tasty mushroom crepe to... More

The ambiance is modern French, the Menu is classic French, the food is excellent and executed with French flair. Their frisee salad with lardons and chevre 'croutons' is inspired and is as good as any that we have had in France; the crispy calamari with tempura-like batter is tender and moist. It has become my gold standard for fried calamari!... More

We had brunch on Father's day and even though the place was packed, the service was very professional, courteous and fast. I enjoyed the short rib Eggs Benedict and my wife had the regular one accompanied by several of their Grand Mimosas.

With so many restaurant choices in Manhattan picking a place for dinner can be almost as difficult as picking a Broadway musical to see. We're certainly glad we decided to give the Brasserie a try. The restaurant is very stylish with very cool lighting, a nice change from all of the typical diner or pub type establishments. We were greeted... More

Is a Monday at 530 the absolute worst time to go out to eat in Manhattan. Well it certainly avoids the Theatre crowd. But the Brasserie seems to have eluded all of Manhattan. The service is very professional, the place is a little days but it works in a Madmen kind of way. But they're was no one there. We... More

I haven't been here for years, this used to be great place for steak frites late late at night. They have turned the beautiful and stylish dining room into a set out of Barbarella. Tacky, cheap and cold. The food is mediocre at best. Service is deplorable, had to request a clean glass twice because the waiter kept on bringing... More

The Brasserie at the corner in Times square was not all it panned out to look like..great location,great view from the inside looking out and the decor was so classy chic....but the attention span of our server was horrible. He would come close enough to look and yet turn and run off...so this meant no refill or anything to even... More

Staying in Midtown

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.
