My wife and I had a Groupon to this place. We were pretty excited about an outing here for dinner on a Saturday night. I checked out the menu and had high hopes because this appeared to be a classic French brasserie. We were greeted...More

Friends had a Groupon so we decided to try it out despite all the reviews. It wasn't as bad a portrayed, however work really needs to be done to elevate the food to above average status. There are too many French bistro classics to do...More

My first experience at Brassserie 33 was 6 months ago with my husband. We had an incredible meal! The bread was fresh and crusty, the escargot was amazing and our entrees (seafood pasta and steak/frites with the brandy peppercorn sauce) were delicious. Our waitress was...More

Brasserie 33 is missing something. Previously we have had great experiences there - good food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. Our last two visits were just OK, interms of food, service and atmosphere. Not really inviting.

The food here is terrible. I have no idea how they stay in business. The Bouillabaisse was flavorless and my husband's steak was a terrible cut of meat. It was stringy and chewy. Not to mention the fact that they were out of everything, including...More

I experienced the worst salad today here. With regard the charge of salad, we had a dispute. The head manager was very rude. My time was ruined because of his attitude. The taste of entrees was not so bad.
