Wonderful experience - food was excellent, our server was great, and overall ambience was perfect. Got there a little early for our 8:00 pm reservation and hung out at the bar. It was Saturday night and the place was full but it didn't feel crowded. Bartender was helpful and attentive. Easily transferred check to the table. Apparently they share all tips, so you don't need to close it out before being seated. We sat in one of the back rooms off the main room so it was a little more quiet that the main floor which was great for us but you still felt that you were right in the mix. Service was excellent Food was great from the appetizers to the entrees to the dessert. Highly recommend.
Always great...food, service, ambiance...and omg, the best bread in the world!
The restaurant looked great, but overall it wasn’t amazing, pretty standard food, the salad had sand like pieces in it, and it wasn’t the bread crumbs like pieces of grit, like it hadn’t been cleaned properly - we left it, the pasta was ok, but not amazing, the risotto was good but that’s about it. Overall not amazing Italian at all, much more delicious Italian places to eat in the city, which high standards make this place look Pretty underwhelming unfortunately - if this was in a small town it might be good, but in LA, nope!
The quantity of the dishes is ridiculous. We spent 250$ and ended hungry that we had to prepare a sandwich when we got home. The food was delicious thats true but the portions where tooo small. Really ridiculous price for the quantity. We would never comeback.
It was a wonderful dining experience! It had great ambiance, interesting cocktails and great starters. The entrees were all fantastic and the wine list was first class. The key was the service, everyone was very nice and completely knowledgeable about the offerings, they made perfect suggestions. We had a great time and will definitely go there again.
Sixth time eating at Brera (lunch and dinner). Food is always good. Salads are hearty. Drinks are delicious - although a bit high in price.
Service is on spot! Love Brera.
The ambiance is great. Host and bartender were welcoming but the waiter was cold. The gnocchi was delicious, the polpo was well cooked, but the tagliagette and milanese weren’t flavorful or worth the price. I would come back for the gnocchi though, the texture and savory cheese is great.
Had a great experience at this restaurant last night some of the best food I’ve had in a while would recommend to anyone just make sure to make a reservation in advance
Fish and chickpeas yum. Octopus was ok
Food was delicious, wine selection extensive and service was attentive.
It was my boyfriend’s birthday and the food was tasty but they did not acknowledge his birthday!
Mixologist delivered inventive drinks to me and my pregnant wife (non alcoholic). The starters, entree pasta and desserts were perfectly prepared to our preferences for savory main course and not overly sweet desserts such that each flavor could be relished and thoroughly enjoyed
We were on holiday and wanted some where with great food
Food was ok, sorta pricey. Place was dead though. Service and ambiance were both good though
We very much enjoyed our meal. Service from our wait person was very poor in a number of respects and we brought it to the manager's attention; he handled it very professionally and appropriately. All in all, left with a good feeling about the evening.
There were many available tables and we were seated next to a very loud offensive group of 4.
The wait staff was overly attentive, to the point of rushing from start to finish. Even after we asked them to slow down and let us enjoy our meal they rushed our meal like a race. There were plenty of open tables, that wasn't the issue. Seconds after receiving menus they were back for orders. We had barely started with our first course and they were there to collect the full plates. The rushed through the whole dinner. We first asked one server to slow down. When it continued we asked for the manager who listened and blank stared at us and walked away. We never complain at restaurants. There were several tables of parties who arrived before us who were not rushed.
Hi LAK1, thank you for your review and dining with us. We sincerely apologize for our service staff making you feel rushed; we have taken the feedback to address this among our service team and manager who was on the floor that night. We hope to have you dine with us again!
Excellent all around. Thank you.
we had the best time! we were early to our res and our friends were late - so spent a great deal of time at the bar. bartender was fabulous and helpful. i have interest in spirits and he took the time to educate me on various unusual items. the servers were so good, as well. very attentive to our needs. it was a great experience.
Great food with a wonderful wine list to match. Just wish it wasn’t downtown. Nice room and cocktail list, with a very attractive bar.
Our waitress was knowledgeable and helpful about food and cocktails. I started with the watermelon salad which was delicious. We had steak and gnocchi, yummy. We enjoyed the olive appetizer as well. Our drinks were excellent. Large room with high ceilings, view of the kitchen behind glass! Casual but upscale.
We had a reservation and were seated last in the worst seats... it felt like we were stuck in a corner. Even the persons next to us told us to sit at the bar. Not likely to go back soon.
Excellent food, nice decor, and great ambience. Would like to come again very soon.
Felt like they wanted to push us to order even thought we told the ww we’re reconnecting with out of town friends
Also brought 3 pieces of bread for 4 people ??? Who does that? I had to say something for an extra piece of bread.
Felt like a place on its way out. Food was not exciting and the preparations felt uninspired.
A very relaxing dining experience for a party of 10. Food was excellent.. ordered the gnocchi, lamb, pork leg .. all were cooked very well. Waitress was excellent! She provided very attentive service and was very good at offering drink suggestions. Would definitely come back!
The meat was amazing. Don't miss the lasagna fritters or the watermelon salad.
The portions were very small. Please consider increasing the amount. I’m not talking about Olive Garden portions but a bit more would have been better.
The dining experience at Brera was enjoyable. My date and I had a hard time hearing each other speak, however due to the high level of noise. The food was good and the drinks were outstanding. I like Factory Kitchen more than Brera, but am willing to visit again soon.
Great environment with fabulous food and service. This is the 4th time we traveled from the West-side.
Consistently good dining experience. They have half priced wines on Wednesday now which made the night even better.
Really enjoyed the experience. The Service it was amazing have no complaints of whatsoever
Good experience! A good dinner with friends。the site is a little far
I enjoyed everything. I'm a person of flavor and the octopus, which was one of the dishes of choice really didnt have any to me. My husband gave the same reaction. Dont get me wrong it was good, but it was an expectation that was not me for us. I had the rack of lamb which was Excellent!! He had the Risotto which he said was ok, same thing his expectation was with flavor. But over all it was nice and enjoyable the portions were perfect and we left happy we tried this place.
Awesome food and service
The food was amazing! The owner came to say hi to us and was so sweet! Highly recommend!
We had a perfect steak as well as pappardelle that was delicious
The service was top notch and the somm poured every glass of wine.bravo!!!
Wonderful evening. The food was terrific. The Lardo was surprisingly sweet. Chicken livers in pate a choux was nice too. I had the risotto with soft shell crab which I liked very much. But my husband's dish was outstanding -- the double chop pork. Everyone at the table loved that. Beautiful room, especially for a summer evening.
Good place to date, parking was easy and not too crazy$$($8 for dinner)
Great service and delicious meal!
The staff allowed us to sit down even though we arrived s few minutes early.
