    Very good

    Great food, especailly the hen. must must get the hen. specialty cocktails are also nice. even when i went there for restaurant week, it was still good. staff is very friendly and helpful. great place for after work drinks because the lounge is nice without being over crowded. don't go if business crowds aren't your thing.

    Always Impecable

    Last night was another fabulous meal at Brasserie 8 1/2. My friend and I love coming here every 2-3 months. The service is always attentive and gracious. We enjoy that they change the menu somewhat for each season. They come up w/inventive approaches to everything. We love that they don't rush you through your meal too. I've never had a bad experience here and will continue to return.

    Nice atmosphere

    Food never disappointing. Atmosphere is very nice. Seating is comfortable and noise level allows for conversation. Make an entrance!

    Lovely Service

    I'm always nervous about going to high-end restaurants, afraid that of snobby looks from self-obsessed hostesses. I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely hosts at Brasserie 8 1/2. All were smiley and genuinely pleasant. Our server was attentive and informed. The food was fresh, tasty and nicely displayed. This is a great place that I highly recommend.

    Great Ambiance and Service -- So-So Food

    Love the space -- the descending spiral staircase, the openness of the dining room; excellent service with what seemed to be three hosts, one a genteel maitre d'. They had my favorite water, Fiji, and the bread basket was wonderful. Off to a great/ perfect start, but unfortunately, the food was just OK -- the squash soup du jour lacked seasoning, and the lamb's lettuce salad had three miniscule, tough bacon specs and a bland, almost invisible dressing. Chicken entree was acceptable yet far from fabulous. But, a wonderful place for a business lunch when the excitement factor of food is not the most important criterion! Ambiance and service are terrific!

    I want to live next door!

    Among my most favorite restaurants in NYC. I am very picky and generally don?t like desserts. But this place?s dessert is the very best in the city. Not only they are very delicious, they are also very pretty!
