    Excellent service by Jamie, good wine selection & reasonably priced - 2013 Chablis $60. All veggies were fresh, food timing was just right. Once again, the waiter, Jamie, was attentive, alert, very pleasant, cordial & helpful with details about meals. Nice bonus - free parking (up-to 3 hours - leaves enough time for a after dinner walk).

    First time “back” to the former Gaslight. Overall a good night. Had duck rillete to start which was good but served extremely cold (like it was just pulled from the fridge). Steak frites were good and as was my partner’s salmon. Love the ambience.

    We arrived earlier than our reservation but were graciously accommodated. The service was a pleasant surprise given recent experiences at other restaurants. The menu made it hard to choose. Everything looked good. And was true of our choices of escargot and duck l'orange in particular. The wines were high quality, and the selections of cocktails and beer were lengthy. Dessert was also tempting but we were just too full. Would definitely go back.

    It felt to me like Brasserie is figuring it out. My server (sat at the bar) was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and clearly had a developed strong relationships with his regulars but there seemed to be some glitches in the process during my stay (ex. dishes coming out cold, soggy fries, etc.). All were remedied very professionally and everyone, including myself, left satisfied and I may have just been there at an inopportune time but I would like to see the restaurant raise their consistency and quality checking to their level of service.

    Brasserie was a great restaurant with great food and the ambience was perfect. I had dinner with my colleagues and we enjoyed our time. Our server/waiter did seem a little snooty which was not delightful. He made certain comments that I did not like but the food and food runners made up for it. I would come back just because that food was that good.

    The best thing about dining at Brasserie was the beautiful patio. They have created through photographs a feeling of being in Paris. The patio is covered and very large. It is a beautiful place to eat dinner. The food was very good and there is free parking which is such a bonus for eating in Boston and the South End. I highly recommend eating here if you want to eat outdoors.

    First time there, and will be back. The patio is beautiful, with covering in case of rain, and lovely photos that almost make you think you're in Paris. The menu was typical brasserie food, nothing unexpected, but everyone thought it quite good--we had black fish and duck, and because we had appetizers (escargot and duck rillettes--there was no room for dessert. Too bad, because they looked good too! And for those of us who need to drive to get there, validated frere parking in the lit right next door!

    The outdoor patio is delightful! The food was good! However, the service was terrible. It took forever for the waiter to take our drink order. Then forever for our drinks. Then forever for waiter to take our food order. Then when each order came, food servers just plunked dishes down in front of the wrong person.......our waiter wasn't there to guide them as to who ordered what and they didn't ask! It was bizarre. It happened with the apps and then with the main courses. And there were many many servers and waitstaff......just poorly trained. Too bad. We have loved this restaurant in the past and took our friends who liked the food but were also surprised by the poor level of service. Would not recommend right now but hope this improves.........

    Service was unnecessarily slow, both bar and kitchen. Oysters were excellent. French Onion soup good but not great. Steak frites forgettable--and they ran out of frites!!! As we were leaving we saw a MOUSE in the main restaurant. Probably not returning. No second chance after the MOUSE.

    We really loved the cheese plate (yay for goat and sheep options!) and our brunch treats. Totally bummed that we couldn't get oysters for brunch, couldn't get most of the cocktails on the brunch menu. The online menu and even the chalkboards IN the restaurant weren't updated, and one of the reasons we chose this restaurant was for the oysters. So, too bad. I would go again, but I would call ahead because the information online is clearly unreliable. The restaurant should either update that or keep their menu items on hand. I know that some things are hard to get now, but communicating that in advance sets appropriate expectations.

    We had a poor experience with wait staff. However the next day the owner called me personally (I had commented when I paid), and apologized. He said they were short-staffed and are being very cautious re COVID. Except for the slow service (we had to ask for a couple of things because the waiter didn’t return), the rest of the experience was fine. The food was very good.

    J’aime la bonne cuisine française ! Ce n’était pas à la hauteur. I should start by stating that the staff we were exposed to was really courteous and caring. Unfortunately, that isn’t enough to make a good table especially for French foodies going to a French restaurant. We ordered as a starter a French onion soup and snails. We had to send the snails twice by to the kitchen because it came out lukewarm. On the third try, it was bubbling boiled and I burnt my mouth roof. My wife’s soup was sent back too because it was cold and the cheese wasn’t melted. When it came back, the cheese was melted but the soup barely lukewarm. Our main dishes were the organic salmon and the bouillabaisse. The bouillabaisse was the worst I ever had. The waiters were confused and appreciated our unwavering calm and understanding. However, sadly, it made it for a poor 20th anniversary celebration. Very disappointing memory. (We left a 20% tip nonetheless because the waiters are not responsible for the cuisine’s quality). We skipped dessert and went to La Voile to finish our dinner.

    Oh, we had the most delightful dinner at Brasserie last night! We had never been there but saw a photo on Boston Eater of the very beautiful $20 burger with wine or beer option, so we made our way over for an al fresco meal. It was so worth while! I chose the wine option with my burger, and my husband chose the beer. We wanted a bit of green so chose the warm fava bean and pea salad with herb pistou. It was delicious and beautiful prepared, with the vegetables retaining the freshness of the garden and their subtle flavors combining perfectly. Then the burgers came on and we just ate for a while, groaning softly. The burgers had caramelized onions, lardons, and gruyere, and were succulent and beautifully balanced. The accompanying fries were crisp and tasty, and we could not stop eating them. I intended to keep half my dinner for lunch the next day but it was too good to not finish. We ended with a glass of vouvray and a second beer, along with wonderful, creamy, vanilla-laden creme brulee, beautifully crusted and oramented with fresh berries. And to top it all off, our server was a complete delight!! What a pleasure she was, not only efficient but a charming person. I had gone into the dinner cranky from work, and left feeling lifted, satisfied, and happy with the world. I also learned that Brasserie will validate parking in the lot next door, so parking is not an issue in the crowded South End. We will absolutely go back again and again, but it may take us a while to move on from that wonderful burger to the other intriguing menu items. It's hard to find great French food in Boston but this fits the bill beautifully.

    If you have high standards, the food isn’t impressive. Deserts were very good however. Solid service; chef came in to ask if everything was well. Good music, not overly noisy. Adequately priced for the experience you get. Would be back for a bar seating next time.
