Brabo or The Majestic

I am surprising my husband for his birthday by taking him to a nice romantic dinner. We are young and would like the restaurant to have a classy modern feel to it, with great food. I really wanted to try Restaurant Eve, but they are booked. I did not realize the reservations needed to be so far in advance.

So I narrowed it down to Brabo or The Majestic...

Any thoughts? Thanks so much!!

The food at the Majestic is homier than the food at Brabo, but they both have great food.

I agree with Carol. If intimate and romantic is what you seek, then go for Brabo. The Majestic is noisey and not what I would classify as intimate, which is exactly how I'd describe Brabo. The menus are very different. Check them out first.

Just an update...we went with BRABO, my husband said it was the best meal of his entire life! Would highly recommend this restaurant...he had the rockfish with potato gnocchi. Only downfall of this place is the entrance, when you enter, the hostess stand is past the bar behind a huge post/pillar. We stood near the front door for about a minute or two, people at the bar turning and starring until finally the bartender shouted across the bar asking if we needed help...a little uncomfortable at first, but our waiter and meal was unbelievable and we'll definitely be back! Can't wait actually!!

Glad to hear your review! I recently discovered Happy Hour at Brabo! It's my new 'favorite'. The Charcuterie platter is big enough to feed a horse! Was amazing and the wine is discounted too! Unfortunately, the cocktails are not...they too, are amazing!
