Too noisy .The men felt portions too small.We had been there a week ago and loved it,but Saturday there were big groups and the tables were so close the waiters had a hard time getting through and we had to adjust our table .The food was good but not fantastic.I had asked for a specific table and told it was available when I made the reservation but it wasn’t.It would have been nice to be told you don’t reserve tables when I called if that is your policy.Becky Kenny

Food excellent .. lots butter used which makes it heavy and difficult to digest... Could your chef reduce the amount of butter used .. realize it is French cooking , but is still very rich with butter
Thanks

Unfortunately, we were seated in the middle of the restaurant at a very busy time and it was extremely noisy. I had requested a corner table when I booked on Open Table but that turned out to be impossible.
The food and service was very good and the prices very reasonable.
Although we said in the reservation it was for a birthday, nothing special was offered or provided, which was okay, but why ask the question.

We arrived at the restaurant which was not busy at all. We shared some mussels which were the size of raisins. The sauce was nice however. We asked for some bread to dip in. The server brought us one quarter of a baguette cut in half (which we were charged for, there were 4 of us sharing two orders). Took forever for our wine to come to the table. Entrees were so so. Would not recommend. Servers were sketchy and trying to be french...lol.

Overall was ok but service is not up to standard. Our server was kind of push us all the time and her tone was not polite at all. Also my friend had order take out soup and sandwiches, she found out that soup was leaking from the lid and was a mess, I told her to go back to the restaurant and see what they can do for her, well, nothing done from the server but just told my friend to hold it levelly so it will not get worse! What kind of the service of this, they didn’t do anything for my friend nor offer giving her another bowl of soup to consider half bowl of soup wasted, well price here is not cheap so we are expecting better customer service. I don’t think we will come back to this restaurant, very bad experience.

The food was very good and the service really very accommodating. They were happy to let us share items and they willingly gave us smaller portions (ex. soup) than were on the menu...also true with the sorbet dessert for one member. The prices were good.

La Brass is authentic French, without being pretentious. Small restaurant, so intimate. Not terribly busy, I'm not sure why, given it was Dine Out Vancouver. We loved everything we had. There were 3 of us there for a special siblings dinner. We shared grilled calamari, escargots and anchovy paste to start - super delicious! The calamari was so tender and the escargots were in a casserole dish with lots of garlic and butter (not the dish with 6 little spots for one escargot each) it was a lovely serving and perfect for scooping onto the bread. Could have used more bread for sopping up the butter sauce (but we are trying to watch our waistlines :)). For mains I had the special confit of duck (divine!), my brother had rack of lamb and my sister had the tagliatelli with beef. Both enjoyed their meals very much. We ate every bit. We even had dessert - lemon tart and sorbet - also delicious. I was less familiar with the wine list, so our server helped me choose, and the choice was excellent. All that food and wine, as well as a glass of bubbles for my sister and I to start and we were under $300, so great value. We loved it so much, we are going back with friends this coming weekend!

My boyfriend and I went to La Brass for the first time for my birthday. Everyone was very friendly. The food selection is good. We tried the bone marrow which was okay. We had the spiced anchovies and pate and both were delicious. The lamb rack and steak were also very tasty. The prices are decent and the amount of food is just right. We had a very pleasant dinner.

Excellent food. Friendly service. I loved my salmon main course. The fish was moist and the skin crispy. I wish there are more restaurants like this — fantastic food, good service, pleasant setting, and neither too casual or too formal. And easy parking in the area!

I love this little neighborhood restaurant. The crab cakes weren't as good this time as before but the wine suggestion was much better than what I was going to order. The service is top notch. Their salads are lovely and fresh.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at La Brass.... we were greeted in a very relaxed and pleasant fashion. The room is very comfortable ( not too crowded ) I had the Ling Cod special and it was outstanding...cooked to perfection. My wife had the pork back-ribs special. The sauce (not a southern BBQ) was wonderful but after sampling one of the ribs I thought they were a bit dry. My wife raved about he vegetables. We will be going back with friends in a few weeks.

Was there twice in one week & enjoyed every moment of it. Just a thought, but what about the furniture i.e. table/chairs being a wee bit darker in the wood color. Maybe would make the room a litle richer & warmer. Or the alternative table cloths?? Maybe you do for dinner time, I've just been for lunch, but looking forward to a dinner meal.

Food excellent. Two problems. First - very noisy. Needs acoustic ceilings. Second, for an expensive restaurant, some of the tables are far too close together, mainly the tables for two on the left.

Our second friends' get-together at this lovely restaurant and again delicious with fantastic service. The two servers were amicable, attentive and very professional. The food is excellent quality and a very good value for what you receive: all freshly sourced and cooked. The mushroom soup was heavenly and the crab croquettes were yummy. The wine list offers really great pairings. Fantastic lunch experience!

The food was cold, the bone marrow was under cooked, the squid ink pasta was one of the worst I had have in my life, completely over cooked and looks like instant ramen noodles. Such a bad experience the manager didn't even ask what was wrong. The only great thing was the lady that was attending us.
