    Spiraling wonder

    On a perfect sept afternoon my friend and I decided to lunch at Brasserie 8 1/2 given the weather I wish it were outside. It reminded me of the old canteen down in soho but older. The bold orange staircase and decor caught my eye. The service was friendly and courteous. Given the fare and environment I was shocked by the jackets the waiters were wearing and the condition they were in. The sleeves were obviously stained and unkept. First thing I'd change would be a new uniform. The food arrived promptly after we finished the bread and some good conversation. We both ordered the chicken salad. The portion was adequate and clean and simply presented. The dressing and seasonings were perfect, not too salty or peppery. A good balance of chicken and cabbage. definitely a good place for a power lunch or an evening of people gazing.

    Good Brunch

    Good value for $ 27 brunch. Desserts are for sure this place's strong point. Food was just good but I had expected better from a place like this. Made to order omlet was just ok, as my friend and I got the fillings mixed in just as it was about to be taken out of the pan, and thus they bare only room temprature. The cheese didn't melt in properly, there was only a drop of spinach on mine. Mine was slightly undercooked and my friend's was overcooked. Great lobby and dining area although I think the decor was a bit cold. Staff were in most part helpful, courteous and attentive.

    Great Business Setting

    The serivce is just perfectly appropriate for business lunch. The prix fix menu is delicious, reasonably priced, and provides the perfect punctuation for a lengthy discussion. My clients have raved about the food and the atmosphere. I will be returning again and again.

    Absolutely wonderful!

    We can't say enough good things about this place! The food was amazing and such good value for money. We had the Sunday brunch and it was worth every penny. Just a shame we couldn't find room for more as the food was delicious! Would definitely recommend and pay another visit on our next trip.

    Lobster fraud

    Don't go for the 2 lb. lobster. They try to bring you a small pile of lobster meat on some potatoes. I have seen more lobster meat in a one lb. lobster.

    Great First Date...

    If you want to make an impression, this is the place to do it. From the food to the atmosphere this place is great... Crab cakes are to die for! Pricey but worth it! Drinks here are good too.
