Dinner here offers a taste of an unpretentious, real French brasserie...moules, escargot, huitres, steak and frites. Yes, it is noisy at times, no, it is probably not the best choice for vegans, and if a dish is too salty, over-done, or underdone, send it back. However, the brasserie experience is genuine and the pluses FAR outweigh the negatives. Go for... More

Brasserie setting with outdoor spaces- weather permitting. Friendly staff, pleasant surroundings and good food. Only negative is that some things are too salty. That's always too bad as people can always add salt. The side order of greens were just too salty to eat. Trout was nicely done and tasty, desserts all good. Nice selection of wines. If you want...

While the wait staff were pleasant our experience at this Easton restaurant wasn't great on our 22nd anniversary. The oysters were not cold enough and as a vegan there really wasn't anything for me to eat. I tried the "mixed green salad hold the cheese" and it was a mound of radicchio and some frissee - not very green. Oh... More

My wife and I went to one of our favorite dining spots for our wedding anniversary. While we were greeted by a new menu, the quality of food remained superior and the service exceptionally professional and courteous. The escargot was tasty, the steak was delicious, lamb chops cooked to perfection and the Brussels sprouts were still out of this world.... More

The food and service were excellent. The building is probably an old repair shop, remodeled with great charm and with authentic antiques and curios. They have a good bar and also an extensive list of craft beers. There is outdoor seating, and lots of tables indoors. Even so, in the summer you should make a reservation. It's very popular -...

Typically I don't like lamb from New Zealand or Australia because of the strong "mutton" taste. The lamb sliders at the Brasserie definitely changed that attitude. They were cooked to perfection and the tomato chutney, gremolata, and goat’s cheese accompaniments added a subtle, but not overpowering richness.

Its been awhile since I've been here and the quality and service is as high as I remember. Stacy and Katie where great at the bar. It was a treat to see Brandon (our reason for coming..."hey let's see Brandon....oh and the braised greens" Awesome grilled oysters, the grilled whole trout and the crispy brussels sprouts were heavenly

A big group of us went to celebrate a co-worker's last day. There were so many of us and it was so nice outside that we decided to sit outside at a large table. Initially, we were told that we had to go up to the bar to get happy hour drinks. When I spoke with the owner/manager to figure... More
