I've visited several times, and fluctuate between the rabbit or duck, which are always very well prepared. Also one of the few spots around, who make a proper cocktail. Certainly recommend stopping in if you've never been.

Been here a number of times. Never seen the same waitstaff twice, and last time was especially inept. Uninspired french cooking at best, never again as good as in the first months when the place opened. I suppose if you tried everything on the menu...More

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants. We had such a bad experience for dinner last night we probably will never go back again. Looks like the staff was too busy for us. We seemed to be ignored which turned a simple dinner...More

Nice staff and pleasant atmosphere but every dish was in the “bad to mediocre” range. Lobster bisque was fishy and bland, the butchers steak was difficult to digest. The hamburger and the bacon/filet were quite good, but it wasn’t enough to salvage the dinner experience.

Who knew? This is a find, if you savor French cooking. Well prepared, more than a trite menu Brasserie 292 offers some inventive tasty delights. Nice wine, also.

Walking in this restaurant feels like entering an authentic french bistro. Everything from the decor to the menu transports you to another place. Well done!

Terrific food and atmosphere! Our party of 6 thought the food was delicious! We shared several appetizers, the octopus was delicious. For entrees we had the cod and chowder, the braised lamb and the roasted chicken. All were cooked just right!

We came here as none of us had been here before. It is ideally set for couples, our party of 3 required a table set up, done quickly. We enjoyed the French onion soup, Ceasar's salad, lamb shank, duck confit and trout. Servings were generous...More
