The best food was bread and butter, the rest is nothing special, overpriced chicken chop- chop salad. According to waiter it was the most popular salad in restaurant. I didn't enjoy it. I had chocolate dessert, only mousse was really good taste, the other 3 desserts was not great. I don't think I will come there next time

Restaurant Week promotion ($35 prix fixe dinner) gave us chance to sample salmon tartare appetizer (excellent, like ceviche which I love), braised short ribs with mashed and some veggies (nicely done, very tasty but not overly salty and top grade meat, decent sized portion), three chocolate dessert was ample and decadent. Spouse had peekytoe crab salad (very good), red snapper (very good but smallish portion) and tart with fraiche and compote. Coffee was extra but a whole baguette was complimentary. Service was impeccable, presentation and atmosphere top notch. Only complaint, bit loud.

From the minute I walked in the door I felt a good vibe. I used to eat here 40 years ago when they were open 24 hrs. Now they close at midnight. The bar was packed with regulars eating free bar food and drinking high quality drinks. But it's the draft beers that need to be noted. One dark beer from Brooklyn and the other from Patchogue are the winners even though Brooklyn seems to win for me at least. Betw 4-6 drinks are priced lower but the beers arrive from the bartender in a 24 oz brandy glass filled to the top. Don't be shy! She knows her brews well and will guide the uninitiated to the best selections. The other bartender also serves you and both gals are fun to be around. NOW. The bar food detailed- Garlicky Pizza,Olives,Wasabi Peas,Cheese Cubes and ample Almonds@Nuts to accompany the exc beer. I was told for some of us this could easily be called 'supper'. The dining room also serves Bfast, Lunch and Dinner but will comment on THAT later. The bartender said the Brooklyn Beer was the best one on the menu...and I'm affraid she was so very, very, right. I liked this place then, and I like it better now. Please Go.

We had an early Saturday night dinner here. We found the service to be great and the food was delicous. I had an escargot appetizer with pumpkin that was wonderful. For dinner, I ordered the burger that was cooked just right and with mushrooms, cheese and bacon it was VERY filling. Our server brought some chipotle mayo for dipping the fries (without our requesting it...) Again - great flavor. My dinner companion had the braised short rib and thought the flavors were heavenly. Two drinks, 3 beers, 3 appetizers and 2 dinners came to $125. I don't think that is unreasonable for Manhattan. We would definitely go back!

The breakfast options in midtown are as numerous as the number of lies we hear out of government nowadays. When someone shows up at your store and orders 8 eggs benedict to go, is patient to wait the half hour because you don't deliver, DON'T overcook all the eggs. You may overcook one or two but when all the eggs are as solid, it is COMPLETELY disappointing. You guys had a really nice product in the past. I just don't get it. When someone comes in and orders something unique like that, shouldn't a little more care be taken?

I hadn't been to the Brasserie in many, many years, but was treated to dinner there last week. I was greatly underwhelmed... The best part of the meal, as another poster said, was the bread and butter! My lobster risotto was mediocre. I won't be going here again.
