We were in town for a conference. Eight of us were seated in a banquet-like table. A friend promised good food, and that was true--all small, tapas-like appetizers were very good. For a group of 8, however, we had to order too many, since the...More

I went with my parents to Braise this past Saturday night and had an awesome time. We tried a couple other places first, both were swamped and taught us that we really need to get serious about making reservations in advance. Anyway, my parents luckily...More

They were a little late in seating us, but made it up to us with a complementary appetizer, but otherwise no problems at all with service. Most of the staff we talked to have been with the restaurant since it opened and their knowledge showed....More

The bar has a decent ambience, but the service was a bit slow and it offered no gins of any known name. I gambled on a classic martini, and lost $11.00. One of the four "small bites" (appetizers) was excellent, one was very good. The...More
