“No service and sh***y food!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

This is one of the worst restuarant experiences I have ever tried! No service, expesive food of very low quality. Stay away and take another
restuarant.
The waiters are sleaky and "very good" to all dishes, but i ordered duck breast with donout photatoes and i was like eating a shoe. Even a steak knife could not slice through. My gf ordered 3 dishes and only the cake was okay. The soup was cold and full of fat. The main course was overcooked rices with a dry meat piece.
The waitres did not ask about food, dessert or something but they charged us 15 % percent for service money.
9100 for to sodas, business lunch menu and the duck plate. Expensive compared to quality and other places.
Only good thing was the clean toilets....
Been to 31 countries and worst restuarant experience ever!

“Poor and unprofessional service”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We went to this restaurant after reading reviews but were disappointed due to poor and unprofessional service. Firstly the waitress just brought the wine bottle and started pouring it in a hurry and very unprofessionally.Proper wine etiquette will make all your wine experiences more enjoyable. ... But this waitress perhaps was never told that.
Then they mixed up the order and blamed us for that.
When asked for our order they took forever to bring the order.
Lastly they also charge us 12% service charge regardless. So be aware.
Overall a 2/5

“It's a tourist place”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

This is definitely a tourist place -- the location is wonderful, right off the square, but the food and service were not. It's handy if you are just looking for a quick bite. We had a terribly mediocre breakfast here, just for the sake of convenience. Service was perhaps the worst we had on the whole trip. You know the kind where, even though there are staff present, and there are only 2 tables of customers in the entire restaurant, they are paying more attention to each other and their stories than they are to the customers or the food. Or refilling coffee. Or bringing you the cream for the coffee that you asked for. Or anything else related to what they should be doing. I've read the positive reviews, and it looks like it might have been a matter of the time of day, or perhaps dinner is a better choice than breakfast or lunch. But you should know it can be hit-or-miss. And, as another reviewer suggested, you are still paying top dollar, perhaps for food & service that is less than that.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

We've visited 5 countries in the last 2 weeks and this restaurant is by far the best. The food was amazing - I had the breaded chicken with arugula salad and my husband had the wrap. The service was top notch as was the live entertainment. The restaurant is located in the pedestrian area that was booming throughout the day. We highly reccomemd Boom & Brass!

“Try the salmon..”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We ate here on our second night in Budapest. There was live music and I ordered a salmon dish with a creme fraiche sauce which was delicious, definitely would recommend coming here.
