i wont be going back – i went for dinner there, service was great. prices reasonable but the food was just ok.. both of us got sick
My Favorite French Restaurant.. – This is one of my favorite French restaurants in New York. The restaurant is located in a beautiful location. The servers are nice and accommodating, I bet they did not get their training in France to be so nice. =) I have been to this restaurant a few times and have not had anything bad. It is safe to order anything. However, my favorite dishes are the Onion Soup Gratinee, the Roasted Organic Chicken . I do not know much about their dessert, as I am always too full after my appetizers and entree.
Divine Cuisine; Exceptional Service; Chef Dimnet Exceeds Expectations; – Brasserie is the ulimate dining hotspot -- exceptional fare, remarkable atmospheric flare and outstanding service. I consider myself a connoisseur of NYC dining, and I cannot express strongly enough how overwelming pleased I was with every aspect of Brasserie. It is a not-to-be missed dining destination for any occasion, including a romantic dinner date, business lunch or Sunday brunch. I even recommend it for occassions such as Mother's Day and Easter. They serve an amazing prix fix meal that trumps anything you'd get elsewhere. Complements to the chef! I'm confident that every one will agree that Brasserie is out of this world. In fact, this would be an understatement. You have not dined in NYC until you've tried this restaurant. My menu selects: escargots bourguignon, beet salad, long island duck, sea bass and chocolate beignets.
Good food, good service, dining room is a subterranean cavern. – The food and the service is all that everyone's review says it is. The restaurant, however is cavernous--it is down a flight from the street level, and had very high ceilings. It does not have the makings of a cozy dinner for two. But as long as that's not what you are looking for, go to Brasserie.
Outstanding Tasting Menu – My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversary in New York during the weekend between Christmas and New Year's Day. We had a wonderful meal at Brasserie. The waiter gave us great service and the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings was spectacular. They ask you what you like and then the chef chooses the menu for you, and of course, the very generously poured wine is selected to best compliment the course. It was most enjoyable!
Impressive – If you're looking for a great experience for your out-of-town friends, this is it. I'd gone there years ago when it was the classic 60s decor. Now, a very modern take on the old Brasserie. Make no mistake, it won't be cheap (be prepared to spend at least $100/each). However, you won't be disappointed. On one visit, we had the chef surprise us with some of his off-the-cuff favorites. Simply amazing. Though the wine selection is decent, it's best if you know what you want going in. For the wine snobs, you may want to navigate the wine list yourself. All in all, a great place.
Delicious, Nice, Pricey – Well, you know what they say, you get what you pay for--and here you pay a lot but you get a nice dinner, nice atmosphere, and are surrounded by gentility. For a special date or occasion, this is the place to go.
Some french influence -- Nice decor – Went there with a friend recently for a late dinner. We were sat promptly thanks to our reservation from the W concierge.
From what we ordered, the foie gras was alright but not interesting. The crab cake was certainly a nicer appetizer to my taste.
The steak (Rib Eye of course) was quite good. My favorite part of the dinner was probably the Sorbet.
The service was very nice and I would recommend the place for that. They were discreet and very efficient.
good food and service overall – came here for restaurant week and the place is fantastic looking. we decided to order outside the restuarant week menu because we werent thrilled with the choices it had to offer. we started off with the crabcakes which was full of flavor and had the right texture. i had the sea bass which was cooked perfectly and my date had the halibut that had a perfect brownish crush cooked to perfection. our dessert was delicious as well which really topped off the meal at the end. the service was great as our waiter did not annoy us ever so often asking if everything was okay.
i'd definately recommend this place to check out if you have never had the opportunity to dine here. it is a bit noisy as the crowds get in so don't expect a quiet evening.
cold decor but I warmed up to the menu – This room looks like a TV game show set. It's very modern, very lit, very glass/plastic. They have a good menu. We liked the fois gras a lot, and the fries are excellent.
