I have been there about 8 times since they opened a couple months ago...everytime has been great and they keep improving as well...the beer selection is incredible one of my favorites has to be the saison of the witch ( which upon my last visit they had some they have been aging for months in wine barrels ).....the mussels or the steak tartare are always a great starter and the dixie chicken is better than anything I have had even living in the south.....I have had almost everything on the menu and most of the beers....all being incredible ....from the food to the beers to the decor this place is exactly what reno needed.....thanks will be seeing you soon Brasserie!

I really wanted to like this place, but found it to be the single worst dining experience I have ever had. My colleagues and I regularly go out for happy hour together and we try to visit different local places to support restaurants that are helping to revitalize Reno. After about an hour and a half, we enjoyed the food enough (their fries are good) to decide to stay on for dinner.

Some of us began ordering entrees while others were trying to decide what to order, and to my amazement, the waitstaff began telling us that we had been using the tables too long and that they had other people who wanted the seating. I asked, incredulous, if they were kicking us out. I expected them to say, no, of course not, but instead all they did was lecture us on how long we had been there and how inconsiderate we were being to other customers who were waiting. We settled on consolidating our two tables to one, which we did to be agreeable in spite of the staff’s arrogant posturing.

All this happened while we were ordering hundreds of dollars of food and drink and trying to support them! Unbelievable. Of course we stayed to finish our food and pay the bill, and as we were finishing the last of our drinks, a big bearded staff member really did tell us to leave, giving us another lecture on how we were being rude to make their other customers wait.

Service at this place is a big problem. Maybe it's because this is a trendy locale for the moment, and they are feeling self-important and smug. They need a change in management to see the ridiculousness of their staff's rude, self-serving attitudes. I definitely won't be back.

I've eaten here twice. This week had the fish and chips. Terrific food! And the choices of beers made in house is impressive. These guys know what they're doing
