    The kind of delicious that surprises you, it's so good. World-class service; elegant but understated decor. They have two Michelin stars; they easily rate a third.

    We came here for a special night and it wasn’t disappointing. The service was excellent, environment was classy, and food beautifully and delicately prepared. Ingredients are super fresh, and each dish showcases the masterful skill that the chef has. My wife and I really enjoyed the five course meal, and glad that we came here for our last night in France

    This food courses were the main problem during my dining experience here. I chose the full tasting menu option which was, except for the desert courses, pretty much flavorless. I have had numerous one Michelin star dinners, in France and worldwide, that were much better. The ambiance of the restaurant was terrible for a evening dinner at a supposed 2 Michelin star restaurant. Loud and obnoxious group of diners seated in the same dining area as me and other patrons. I am not sure what La Mere Brazier is, but I know it is nowhere near a two Michelin star restaurant. This restaurant is still riding the coat tails of it's original chef, and has lost a star since then. It will not be long before it loses another Michelin star and it should.

    We ordered the 3- course classic menu. Didn’t expect that it would be an extended 3-hr lunch! Nevertheless, the staff were courteous and friendly. The wait in between course helps to digest your food before you take in the next course. Each course portion is just right. Presentation of food is excellent. We had an enjoyable time in the restaurant.

    If you are looking for traditional French food with a twist and formal service, La Mere Brazier is the right place for you. We want for lunch, getting the business lunch of appetizer, entree, water, wine and coffee which was perfect. The kitchen sends out several amuse bouchée and a couple dessert items. Amazing service.
