Reviews for Brabo

For the money it does not provide the impact I would expect. Service staff is attentive but not overly so. The demographic and regular audience of the space is what it is so when our party sat down to order the slightly condescending tone from the server was unappreciated.

After reviewing every restaurant menu in the city to find the perfect Valentine's Day spot, I landed on Brabo. The prie fixe options were EXTREMELY limited and I didn't like any of them. I was so disappointed, but being 8pm on Vday I felt forced to choose the steak despite coming with foie gras. The flavors blended together and ruined the meal. The potato leek soup and red velvet cake were also underwhelming, and the dessert didn't come offered with coffee or tea even full review
tl;dr: stop in for the cocktails, not the food. It's not at all the quality for the price, especially considering price should have been better during restaurant week. This review is written solely based on the early 2020 restaurant week menu. Starting with the positive: cocktails. Early American (gin, Cointreau, citrus), the RW special mule (mango, ginger, habanero), and the espresso martini were all quite good. Maybe not quite $16 quality and/or imaginatinative-ness ( full review
