I'm surprised to read negative reviews here. A friend of mine and I have dinner at Brazie's about once every other month. It is always great. The bread and olive oil with herbs/garlic for dipping. . .YUM. The salad -- I want to buy the dressing so I can make this at home. And I just love the chicken spedini. The atmosphere is pleasant and we've always received excellent service. I highly recommend this place -- one of my favorite restaurants in town.

Our recent experience was left in disgust. We could have chosen a number of restaurants to celebrate the New Year but by mistake we chose Brazie??s. It was New Year??s Eve and we had advance reservations (made five days prior) for five people very early in the evening. There were about 4-5 tables occupied when we arrived. I requested a round table and it was declined. We were put in the back room against a large wall with blaring music coming from the terrible low-grade ceiling speakers; wouldn??t it be appropriate for restaurant serving Italian cuisine play that region??s music? It was so uncomfortable that I was elected to try and get us moved. I asked to speak to the manager or owner but was shielded from talking to the on-duty manager and told that a cancellation had just come in and we could move to the front room where there were windows. I again asked for a round table as I could see there were several unoccupied but was declined.

The dining experience: We each ordered shrimp scampi appetizers-- got 4 medium-size at $9.95 per order! The mixed drinks pricing was also outrageous for the volume served. If you are a strawberry daiquiri lover, don??t go to Brazie??s-- they don??t offer them. Dinner was a long wait in which the server offered an apology without being solicited.

The bill: Delivered hand-written and incorrect.

Desert: The Brazie??s experience left us making a decision to leave and have desert somewhere else. The evening was saved because we discovered a great little place that we will frequent often.

Oh, by the way, the unoccupied table in the front room stayed that way the entire duration of our visit-- guess you have to have pull and be friends or family to get a round table at Brazie??s.

Well, I went to Brazie's on a Friday night. I had to wait for awhile for my table, but, other than that, I loved it. The waiter was perfect and so was the food.The bus help wasn't even like bus help- they were like second, third, and fourth servers. Food was hot when it got to the table: the way it's supposed to be. Great ambiance and friendly atmosphere. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Pros: service, food, setting, vibe, bus help

Cons: There's only one location

Brazie's used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Saint Louis when it was on Hampton. It was a wonderful little secret. The food was always perfect and the service impeccable.

Sadly, since their move, they have completely changed, and I can no longer recommend them. I brought a group of six on a Saturday evening and we found terribly slow service and food that was mediocre. The fettucine alfredo tasted as if it was made with corn starch and the pasta was way past al dente. Each of my guests had something else and each labeled it 'mediocre at best."

Besides the ridiculously slow service--the waiter kept pulling a vanishing act--when we finally got the bill, we found that the waiter had added exactly $2 to the price of every entree. (Normally, I don't even check the prices, but one of my friends wanted to know what we were paying for such bad food.) When we brought it to the waiters' attention he said that he was in a hurry and had "guessed the prices."

Seriously if you do go, keep an eye on the help.

The chicken spedini was absolutely excellent. So was the Shrimp Brazie. The restaurant is nice. The decor is modern, the lighting is romantic and the table clothes are white, covered with glass. I like this - they get the tables actually clean before you are seated. I have a few negative issues regarding my dining experience there last Saturday evening. I felt as if I second hand smoked two packs of cigarettes while waiting a long time for our table and also through the course of our meal. This is the one factor which may cause me not to return to the retaurant. The bar area is very small and the smoke just bellows out into the front dining area. My pressure was up by the time I left because of all of the smoke I inhaled while trying to enjoy this wonderful food. They need a smoke eater or they need to make it a non smoking facility - then we would return. Also - we had reservations, however - they took forever to seat us and the bus help was rude, initially, when we were being seated as they were still cleaning off the table. Lastly - we were made to wait at least 45 minutes between our salads and our actual meal because of a "back-up" in the kitchen, however, I did notice tables who arrived after us - being served before us. I'm not sure if friends and family are served first before general guests or what. We all pay the same and hopefully tip the same. I wasn't happy with that either - that was not fair. Our waitor, Erin was great and kept us informed of the timing issue. They do pour a nice Chevis on the rocks and their bread dipping oil is excellent. So - in conclusion - if you do not mind second hand smoking 2 packs of cigarettes through a delayed dining experience and rude bus help.....the food is very good and worth the money. I would have given it four stars had it not been for the smoke and wait time.

Brazie's is the best restaurant in the City...My husband and I go there alot as our "date" location. Everytime we leave we have to take home food for the kids. They love it! We have taken them before and it is wonderful! Brazie is the best! Always busy in the kitchen but always makes it a point to wave or say hi before we leave! Never had a problem with the restaurant, food or service. New location is bigger.

Been going to Brazie's for over 10 years. Have had many meals there and I can honestly say that I have never had anything that hasn't been outstanding. Brazie himself is in charge of the kitchen, and everything that comes out of there is done with care. Easily the most consistently excellent restaurant in town. BTW, they have a new location, with outdoor seating. Haven't been there yet, but will be soon and give another review.

I can't say anything other than "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED" for the experience we just had at Brazie's last Saturday evening! We had a party of 18 for a 6pm reservation. The table was ready when we arrived so we were quickly seated. Service was impeccable...we had one server, and several bus boys, that serviced our entire party without missing a beat! Our server was very pleasant and very knowledgeable about the menu. The timing of the appetizers, salads and entrees was outstanding. Our food arrived, freshly prepared and HOT....which is an amazing feat when serving 18 people! The food was better than any Italian food that I have eaten in the St. Louis area, and I have lived here all of my 50 years! All 18 people left the restaurant saying that they will be back again. Brazie's has taken the #1 spot on my list!
Thanks for your superior service and excellent food!!

Pros: Service, Food, Cleanliness, Convenience. White linens

Cons: None

Anywhere the Chef is the owner the food is going to be good. In this case it's excellent. We have been going there for almost 3 years and the food is great along with one of the best salads in the city served with bread and olive oil herbs, red pepper and asiago cheese!!! Try the Shrimp Brazie, Outstanding and reasonable! Location and ambience not the best but go for the food after all that's what a restaurant is for!!!

This place is the best. I have never had bad food or bad service. The house salad is wonderful. I have sent several friends to eat there, who have all loved it. Who cares if its in a strip mall!

I'm not sure why others would rate this so highly. The ambiance wasn't great, I mean, it's in a strip mall, basically. The food was just ok and wasn't really that cheap. So, for food that is moderately priced it just wasn't that nice. Compared to other restaurants in the area it just doesn't compare.
