“A nice addition to Brookfield dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

My husband and I have been here about a dozen times, so clearly, we like it! Fresh food, good service, nice atmosphere, good bar selections, dynamite coffee. Don't expect a giant portion, but expect a sufficient portion of very fresh, tasty food!
My only problem with the menu is that I think it skews meat heavy. As someone who doesn't eat pork, I find there are limited options (even the creamed corn has bacon in it), and it would be nice to see some new vegetarian choices on new menus.
Only had one bad experience with their "reservation" system where we called ahead for a 7:30 patio time, only to have to wait 30 minutes to be seated, and when we got to the patio, there were plenty of empty tables?? By that time, it had cooled off to the point where we probably should have eaten inside. I will chalk it up to a one-time hiccup.

“New favorite place in brookfield”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Great service, great fresh food, who could ask for more. Waitress recommended a few things. Usually would not order something heavy for lunch like meatloaf but the way the waitress described could not pass trying this daily special. Nest meatloaf ever, gravy fabulous, crunchy outside sweat and tender inside. Whipped mashed potatoes and asparagus.m yummy. Split a zucchini cake with chocolate fondant after. Really enjoyable experience. Will definitely be back.

“Fresh and fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

If you are looking for a relaxing, enjoyable, healthy, tasty lunch or dinner, this is the place. A beautiful building with outside seating, fabulous interior and well stocked bar. The menu is varied with something for everyone. Meat, chicken, fish, vegetables all prepared beautifully and with love. They actually have their own garden just off of their parking lot - today we saw them picking and cleaning carrots - and they were served as part of a vegetable dish. Daily specials - comfort foods including meatloaf. Very attentive staff. No disappointments - give it a try.

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We have stopped at PS 23 at least 6 times. The food is always good and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The food is fresh and comforting. Enjoy going here to eat.

“Excellent food, awesome waitress...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Tried this place for the first time with my sister on July 4.  Besides the awkward hostess being really unfriendly when we walked in, this restaurant is great!  Our waitress was attentive and friendly.  The food was delicious!  We had the veggie flatbread and chicken pot pie.  The superfruit sangria was amazing!

Only negative: management needs to properly train the hostess about good customer service.
