So I've been to one or two French inspired places and this place is - solid

I will always try and get in when we visit

Tasty and reasonably priced

“Leisurely lunch”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Expect to spend 90 minutes to 2 hours in the true European style. Good wine selection, excellent mussels, bread, salad and a great Copper River salmon tartare. This was a great break in the middle of a long day of wine tasting.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is the best French restaurant I've been to this side of the Atlantic! The food is simply outstanding. I'm from Portland and we have no lack of fine dining, yet these folks reset the bar with their take on french comfort food. I had a chance to speak with some of the local folks about the food and they tell me that the chef is consistently excellent, day in,day out. Wonderful food.
Now - please do something about those chairs, especially the stools at the bar! Not very comfortable.

“A Nice Addition to Walla Walla's Fine Dining Landscape”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Brasserie Four is on Main Street in Walla Walla's downtown. It offers outside as well as inside dining. It lacks the the panache of other Walla Walla fine dining restaurants, but nevertheless the offerings are very good and, more importantly, very edible. I had a plate of raw oysters with a dipping sauce. They were excellent. My wife and I had the french fries as well. Their fries are beyond excellent. It is a signature offering for them. Finally, we had one of their pizzas. You might think that was a ho hum menu item for us to select. It was not. The pizza was house crafted and the equal of other such pizzas offered by fine dining Italian eateries elsewhere in the Northwest. Brasserie Four is well worth enjoying.

“Fun menu; very good food”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

After a day on the road, traveling to Walla Walla from Oregon's Willamette Valley, and tasting at a few wineries outside of town, we were ready for a good meal in a casual setting that wouldn't bust the budget. Brasserie Four was just the ticket.
The menu had so many mouth-watering options that we finally decided to order several dishes (mostly "small" plates). We picked 8 -- causing most of us to think we'd ordered too much. Amazingly, we finished it all, but at the expense of dessert. We couldn't even muster the willpower to look at the dessert menu -- maybe next time.
Rather than have the dishes served in a particular order, we told our serve to "just bring it out when it's ready," so the pace was decidedly unorthodox. I don't recall what came out when, but it was all good and we had dishes being passed around almost constantly -- take a bite of two, pass it to your left. Repeat, for almost 2 hours. LOL
Our selections included two salads -- one featuring an ample mound of spring green, with strawberries and pecans and goat cheese; the other a trio of slivered fennel, beets and carrots. Charcuterie and cheese plates included about a half-dozen assorted cured meats and "salumerie" and a like number of soft, hard and "stinky" (and YUMMY) cheeses. A salmon tartare with a few greens and thin toasts was superb, with a texture that was almost caviar-like. A bowl of mussels seemed endless in providing tasty morsels of flavor in the savory broth, and the accompanying frites (perfectly cooked french fries) kept us nibbling through much of the meal.
We also had ordered two of the "main dishes" -- Supreme de Volaille (breast of chicken bathed in a decadently lush sauce of morel mushrooms and cream), and a lamb shoulder with roasted carrots. The dish purports to be a "peasant's dinner", but the tenderness of the lamb was reminiscent of an all-day pot roast. And the flavor, undoubtedly intensified by slow cooking, was more fit for a king than commoner.
The five of us feasted like, well, royalty. With a $15 corkage fee for the nice French-pedigree wine we brought from our cellar at home, our bill was $154, including about 8% tax. The only downside, acoustics in the main dining room accentuate the noise, so with a couple of large parties of about 10-12, the noise level was pretty high. Conversation required a lot of concentration, but the food kept us occupied a good part of the time.
Final verdict - great deal, great meal. We'll be back some time for dessert!
