Food was good, but experience was ruined by the waitress repeatedly calling me “love.” Condescending, offensive, and completely inappropriate in this day and age to refer to a female customer as “love.”

This is Alex and Sayu. Food was great and so was the service! We've been to most of the authentic French restaurants and this one was really good in comparison.

Though a bit disappointed with no mentioned of happy hours before 10 mins we ordered. The crepe tasted really fantastic and their homemade dessert will definately worth a try!!

The food from the dine-out menu were really bad: the clams in seafood steamer were just bad by smell; the salmon was really dry; a tiny piece of hard bread for each person without butter or anything; the wait time was too long; small portion for each dish - everyone was still hungry after three courses. We will never go there again.

You definitely come here for the food, not the service. The restaurant is quaint. Very popular with a more seasoned crowd. The food is delicious, but the service: we waited at the door with the hostess's back towards us for 10 mins, she was very brash when she did seat us finally, we weren't given drink menus, we had to grab a random server to order because no-one attended to us, we asked for 1 coffee refill three times, they screwed up the bill and then it took ages to pay. From working in the service industry, it was clear to me that their management needs to train staff better or just hire staff that aren't students maybe? They couldn't give a fiddler's f*ck about the guest's experience... and we were expecting a nice French restaurant. But the food is amazing!

It could you something in the decoration to dampen the noise. Unfortunately the noise level experienced during our meal made it so difficult to hear each other. It was unfortunate as we all felt the food was great.

Went here for an anniversary dinner. Was really busy so I would recommend making a reservation. We were seated to our table and it took a long time before someone brought us water and then took our drink order. Once we ordered the food came out relatively quickly. Overall food was good. Ordered the Cauliflower, escargot and meatballs to start. The escargot was excellent, meatballs were good and I wouldn't order the cauliflower. For mains we ordered the prawns and duck. Both were good and flavorful, the prawns were a bit oily and the duck leg was slightly dry.

Off to a rocky start when we were greeted by a server who seemed a bit miffed that we used open table to book. She walked off in huff and then another gentleman had to help us. I said if they didn’t have a table to accommodate us (4 people) it was fine and we can dine some place else.

Not our first time here...we’ve been here for lunch brunch and dinner. Didn’t look like they had enough wait staff.

Overall food is good. Service wise needs a bit of polishing.

Service was prompt and friendly on a busy Sunday evening. Loved the round table for 6 people. Menu selections were extensive. Portions were generous. Food was flavorful and well executed, although a tad heavy on the salt overall. We enjoyed the fact that there was no blaringly loud music so that we could have a good conversation over dinner. Dessert selections were somewhat limited compared to the rest of the menu. Nice ambience overall.

Delicious main courses - especially the rack of lamb and the shrimp risotto. Our server was helpful and not intrusive, the options for most courses were well balanced and not overwhelming. Perhaps one extra dessert option would round out an excellent set of choices.

We frequently go to La Brass and each time the food, the service and the experience is beyond good. I can honestly say we have never experienced a poor meal. The prices are also fair. I would definitely recommend La Brass to any who may be looking for a small comfortable restaurant offering great food.,

A long-time fan of its predecessor, Provençal Grill, and knowing that a sous-chef from the latter was still at the new(ish) premises, we were overdue at La Brass for a try-out. We were not disappointed. Excellent food and wine, very efficient and pleasant service, and a pleasing quiet atmosphere (I hate it when noise levels are so high that one cannot hear oneself speak). Highly recommended.

The staff was amazing, going above and beyond. The food was out of this country, akin to the fine dining of Paris. Loved the twist taken on traditional and classic dishes, and such as the escorgots. Thank you for an awesome dining experience, even with a rambunctious toddler.
