Brasserie 8 1/2
Wonderful restaurant experience. You feel like you are someplace special and the servers are very attentive.
We went for Father’s Day brunch. Even though , they were very busy but all the staff were on top of their game. Huge selection of food and great job as usual! I didn’t expect that they can provide such a fine service during Father’s Day. Wow! What a gem!
Great food good value lots of variety. Love the shrimp.
Great Brunch....amazing selection. Everything was delicious.
Azi, Anne and I: Azi and I had the prix-fixe for $45: octopus app, which was very good, and the duck breast, which was also very good. Anne had the halibut, very good. Anne and I shared a half bottle of the Puilly Fuisse, which was very good. We shared two desserts—the apple tart and the almond cake,both very good
Brasserie 81/2 is a lovely place to got to eat or drink. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful. There is a very delightful sitting area where you can have a drink before dinner or just to have a cocktail. Very relaxing. The Bar is very classy. The bathrooms are very clean. Our food was delicious. A party of five and we all agreed that our dishes were very tasty. The waiters are very attentive. I would come here again.
This is an amazing restaurant and we had great dinner..really got f food, exceptional service, wonderful ambiance
All was ok — food, service, ambiance. Best part is low noise level.
The food and service is superb. This is our fourth visit and each time the service and the food was perfect.
Another wonderful dinner at 8 1/2. We always come for special occasions such as birthdays because we know the food, ambience and service are great. Sarah is wonderful and took care of us. We will definitely be back again and again with friends and family. It’s a great place to eat delicious food at a fair price in a gorgeous setting and be able to converse with your group because unlike most establishments, the restaurant is serene and you’re surrounded by beautiful art. Delicious meal and good conversations, it’s a rare find in NYC.
Always enjoyable. Great place to talk with friends
This is an old favorite, and it is as fresh as ever. It was firing on all cylinders. In particular, I noticed the kitchen paced the meal much better. The food was excellent. The lunch prix-fixe was extraordinary value.
Excellent food and really enjoyed the soft shell crab experience.
A nice find for brunch! The buffet was extensive and delicious. For the price, tea and coffee should be included. Seriously, how much does that cost? Also, the service was awful. We saw our waitress once when we were seated and had to flag her down to get ice teas. She never brought the check, so another waiter had to find her for us. Overall, though, it is a nice Sunday brunch and I we did enjoy ourselves.
The brunch buffet is too expensive for its value. The food was good, however, I had to pay extra for coffee.
Food was delicious. ALot of variety.
Everything went great. The staff was attentive, setting lovely and menu with a good selection.
Absolutely perfect. I simply love it. Great food, well prepared and served, all in a beautiful reasonably quiet setting. I love it.
We had a lovely evening at brasserie eight 1/2. It is such a lovely, luxurious space, where are you feel welcomed the minute you enter. The staff is amazing and you can converse because the noise level is moderate. The food was excellent, especially for the value, and we had good help making our selections. We are enthusiastic about returning. Thank you.
Excellent in every way. Besides the outstanding food and service, I love the space.....modern, airy, beautiful, with lots of space between tables.
Wonderful ambiance, service, wine list and the very best mussels I’ve had anywhere....even in Brussels!
Wonderful soft shell crab menu, and BYOB a great opportunity to enjoy great wine at a savings.
Food was good. I had the soft crab special and my partner had the hugest piece of Ribeye I ever seen; both were great. They have prix fixe, BYOB and happy hour on M-F on selected days. The service was tentative. But there was an unfriendly man sitting at the entrance of the restaurant questioning if we had reservation. It left a bad first-impression. Otherwise, the service was good.
Very nice space, lots of room for private conversation. Very good food. Service friendly and professional.
Went for the Sunday brunch. Food was excellent and abundant/diverse. Had somewhat low expectations because of the brunch being an all you can eat buffet, but I was pleasantly surprised as all the different foods were delicious and fresh. Great “bang for the buck”. Fair to say Brasserie 8 1/2 is a serious contender for offering the best brunch in New York City, easily the best one I’ve been to! Highly recommend!
Perhaps it is time to interchange some items on the buffet line. Although the food is good, it is getting boring.
Great food and fabulous waitress, hostess and staff.
Table was perfect, as was service and food. When we mentioned that it was cold, the temperature was adjusted. An enjoyable dinner.
outstandingly high quality two course prix fix lunch for $29. Excellent duck, lamb, soup, salad, A model and generous place.
The food is excellent, and the service is impecable... This is my favorite NYC restaurant. The tables are spaciously separated. The ambiance is great. Very well decorated. Excellent desserts and the prix-fixe is very good. The best thing is that the place is quiet enough to have a business conversation even if there are several people at the table.
Wonderful food and ambience
Beautiful and quiet space. Great food. Great service. Wonderful ambiance. What more could you ask for?
Love the food and the environment plus the staffs are really nice , this is my forth time going back , we had a great dinner 😊
They have abulous service. It is great for pre-theater!
Delicious food in lovely surroundings. Our server was wonderful. Will def go back!!!
This is the best location for a business lunch in Mid-town.
Perfect food and service!!!!!!!
Excellent food on BYOB night, attentive service in a quiet, lovely atmosphere. Love the surf-and- turf, with fillet “like butter!”
With a party of six, we had excellent service, enjoyed the menu options, and would certainly return for another meal.
