    Service was very attentive and personal. We enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was of the highest quality and presented beautifully. La Mère Brazier lived up to the quality of its Michelin stars. Thank You.

    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.

    The staff were perfect. They were polite, respectful, intelligent, and had a good sense of humor. The food was lovely and it was a true culinary experience. My only negative point is that as a solo diner, I would have appreciated being seated near a window or in one of the corners rather than in the center of the room. I felt uncomfortable where I was sitting.

    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.

    Ate the Classic menu and it was very good. Wanted to try the Classic french cousine and thats what i got. The pike was just ok not more. The foie Gras was the best. Do french restaurants get the stars easier just because their french? Ate at Oaxen, a swedish 2 star restaurant and it was, i have to say, a lot better. But i defenitly reccommend going here. Did only drink water so cant say anything about the wine. Nice staff.
