When I travel to France, I look for restaurants that have fine and rare wines available at reasonable prices so this review may be of little interest to you unless you share that interest in wine. The food here is very good in a traditional style, with special mention to a Bresse chicken cooked in vin jaune and served in... More

Upon our arrival at La Mere Brazier, we were seated in a small room (where there was a lot of traffic as there was another room in behind, so patrons and servers had to go through the space we were in to access it). Both my husband and I immediately noticed a very musty smell in the room; we tried... More

Definitely one of the cullinary hi-lights of my life! My wife and I celebrated her birthday at this world class restaurant. The food is absolutely exquisite and the service was extremely well coordinated and seemless in it's presentation. The waiting staff and sommelier were very knowledgeable and did not miss any of the small details. We would recommend this dining... More

We had heard great things about La Mere Brazier but eating is believing. The reception was welcoming and the decor was minimalist harking back to the founder. The serving trays, plates and cutlery were works of art in and of themselves. The rooms are divided into arrangements for two - four tops. Upstairs they can accommodate larger parties. We had...

We went to Mere Brazier with high expectations. Some were fulfilled -- e.g. the service was excellent, both for its skill and warmth. The food and wine, however, were really not substantially above what is so common in France these days, and were very expensive. For example, 80 Euros for a main course. There were some menus provided which were... More

Friendly, professional service with a great wine list. Try to avoid eating on the first floor unless you're shorter than 5'2. I was hunching walking to and from the table and still bumped my head a couple of times.... Went for the long fixed menu, which was great.

We had the Menu Classique--quennelles that melted like clouds in our mouths, preceded by wonderful fois gras, and the tastes just danced in our mouths. There was delicious breads of several types and many amuse bouches and little tidbits along the way--a leisurely, lovely and positively delicious dinner to remember. The outside of the building is plain--I was a bit... More
