The food is outstanding: meat balls, crab cakes, rack of lamb, prawn Brass, halibut special, creme brûlée, etc all fantastic! The chef did an amazing job.

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.,

Excellent and friendly service. Delicious food - we happened to have the halibut which was done perfectly - and the accompaniments were truly complimentary. This is Comfortable fine dining. Every time I dine here I wonder why I don’t do it more often!

Brandade entree portion was so generous in salt cod and potato puree with 2 small pieces of toast that it made each bite very salty. Otherwise the service, food and experience was wonderful.

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.

We always like going to la Brass. The service is great - long-time servers are friendly. The food is excellent. It's a great place to go which we do for special occasions (birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc.). My husband and I go out on a dinner date every Friday - it would be nice to go to La Brass every Friday but it's a bit too expensive for that.

Great place to go and eat, great neighbourhood restaurant to know about. As it is French , the butter tends to be used quite liberally. Which may add to the heavy feel after a meal. If you can deal with that not a problem. All in all quite excellent

This location was taken over by La Brass from Provence, one of our favourite neighbourhood restaurants. At first we were not impressed by the new restaurant, but we were there recently to give it another try. We were very happy with our food this time. We think the menu has improved: more imaginative, plentiful, and tasty. This especially applies to appetizers and main course. If we have any criticism it would be about the gravy - which seemed to be the same, no matter what the meat, and the low and predictable selection of bottled beers. All in all, though, we would return. We enjoyed our meal.

Decided to celebrate Mother’s Day at La Brass. We were looking forward to a great night but was mired by a 45 minute wait on appetizers, a 90 minute wait on mains. The server informed us they only had 2 cooks working tonight. The food was ok but 2 out of the 4 mains we ordered were too salty for our liking. We told one of the servers and he simply said “that’s what we have been hearing tonight”. No gesture of any kind was offered to us despite the almost 2 hours wait.

We went for lunch on a Monday to celebrate a friend's birthday. Both of us ordered Omelettes. Probably the very best omelette I have ever eaten! Served with a very nicely dressed salad and roast potatoes. I had the Florentine - Mushroom Omelette. ! So light fluffy, stuffed full of spinach and mushrooms, not at all greasy like some. Our waiter, Ali, when he learned it was my friend's Birthday, softly sang "Happy Birthday" in his beautiful baritone voice, it nearly made us cry. This fine restaurant is very classy yet not stiff. Excellent service. You will find metered parking on the street. Well worth a visit.

When I booked our table thru open table I was confirm d for six o’clock. Received a call saying that the restaurant and open table do not sync so I was told that my reservation could not be honoured. As it turned out we still went and got a table but it was a bit upsetting thinking I had a table and then was told less than 3 hours from reservation that I didn’t. We did have a lovely dinner and would go back.

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

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.
