    I’m not one to leave a bad review and honestly hate to - but I took my husband here for his b day brunch and the food was sub par and over priced. Sticky floors, strange smells in the restaurant, very small portions, overall lackluster experience but the photos online make it look so much more trendy/yummy. Disappointed :(

    We were lucky enough to be offered a table in the beautiful courtyard of Hotel Cerro. Centered around the fig tree and surrounded by plants , open to the sky , warmed by fire pits. Service was informative, friendly and discreet, The menu offerings were sophisticated, emphasis, on farm to table, local fresh ingredients.Our food was excellently cooked and presented.. all delicious. Extensive wine choices and great guidance from our server. It was an all round enjoyable experience, highly recommended.

    I really enjoyed this place. It was healthful but elegant. I liked the raw oysters - very fresh. I had the horseradish crusted beet salmon, and it was delicious. I nice to break to the normal routine. It was casual but elegant. Also a nice selection of wines.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stop at the Brasserie SLO on a drive south from the Bay Area. It's in a very convenient and interesting part of downtown, and has a very nice dessert display at the entry. We enjoyed a very interesting "croissant beignet" appetizer. It was very tasty (if a bit oily), and was accompanied by a beautiful rhubarb apple dipping sauce. We both ordered salmon & vegetable quiche for the main course, which was very rich and creamy. I would have liked a little less cream and a little more salmon (the salmon was essentially a thin crust on the top, which made it a crispy), but the flavor was delicious. And kudos to the hiring manager - the staff was friendly, engaging, and helpful. I just wish I'd known that the bottomless mimosa was $38!! Who could possibly drink enough mimosas to make it worth that price?

    Service was attentive and pricing would be fair however, oysters nor fish were the freshest. Additionally, halibut was overcooked. With that said, all of the vegetables on both entrées as well as cocktails as dessert were completely on point.

    We are always looking for a French Restaurant close by. The service was very good. The outside seating is really great on a nice day. Food was very good, not outstanding, but better than avarage. the salmon bisque very good, the empanadas good. Quiche I wouldn't order again again service was excellent and staff very friendly

    The portions are very small and the prices are very high. We shared a salad and added salmon. The salad portion which is supposed to be like a meal was like an appetizer and then you split it and it’s like a sample plate. The soups were tasty but the potion of the bowl was smaller than a cup. We spent $72 for lunch for two. We did not even have wine, just Ice Tea.

    The air conditioning is on so it blows right through open space. Poor planning. Needed bigger opening and less velocity. You get a nice hot meal. Put your jacket on and eat before food cools down. Would have preferred booth arrangement.

    Great ambiance, and excellent service for a mother's day lunch. The Crudo and a Buratta salad where excellent, but the main course, a lobster risotto was watery and bland, under-seasoned and a bit disappointing, (not in keeping with other meals we have had there.)

    Fantastic meal with beautifully presented, well-crafted dishes but the service fell short. You could tell everyone’s intentions were good, but it wasn’t fine dining. Not only did we interact with more than four different employees, they weren’t able to describe the menu, didn’t provide needed utensils, didn’t ask if we were interested in dessert or provide water refills. I’ll chalk this up to current staffing woes and try again but it was disappointing!

    Lovely evening in a clean, airy, modern , neat environment. The food was wonderfully fresh combining a pop of two or three intense flavors that were perfect together with a well thought out and beautiful presentation. French with a fresh twist. Brilliant! Service by Athena was perfect and very friendly, attentive, and spot on. Every employee was kind and helpful. Wonderful touch of the chef stopping to check in with tables! The spot does a lot right and hits many points one likes to see during their dining experience.

    We haven't spent much time in SLO, and found this Brasserie on Open Table and decided to give it a try. We came early and it wasn't too busy on a Friday night. Got seated outside which was nice for a beautiful evening. Heater worked great! Food was delicious, with specials using fresh ingredients. We shared the ricotta appetizer and I had the halibut, my husband had the NY steak, which was definitely enough for two. We also enjoyed cocktails and wine by the glass. Our server, Oscar was friendly and helpful and all the other staff that we interacted with were quite nice. We would definitely go back!

    We had brunch here with a group of locals and tourist friends. Back patio and food was lovely! The staff were not as knowledgeable about the menu items or wine/champagne as we had hoped… there were several mix ups from opening the incorrect bottles of wine for us and not bringing the correct bottles until halfway through the meal. They also were incorrect with several of the ingredients which was a challenge to work around. Again, the food was great though!

    We were one of e first customers at 5:00 pm. We ordered cocktails witch took a long time to reach the table. The manager comp us with a plate of raw oysters I which we sent back with thanks since none of the party ate raw oysters. The waiter suggested we split an order since they were large. We did this with salad and the meat course. The food was very good. The price was about $150 for two with wine Cocktails. I will go back again.

    Loved the food. We had incredible service. My husband complained about price, but then he’d rather have mountains of B- food. My daughter and I truly enjoyed everything we chose. We were happy with delicate servings of A++ food. She and I will be back!!! Also we appreciated the respectful way her 8 year old daughter was treated.

    Brasserie SLO was fantastic - everything from their flexibility with our changing the # of our party and the time we were arriving, to the excellent service and delicious food. When we arrived, the restaurant was bustling, but it was not loud so we could carry conversations without having to strain our ears. Gannon our server was very attentive and on top of everything without being intrusive. We all enjoyed our meals - didn't have a bad choice on the menu, and the cocktails were also creative and delicious. Highly recommend having dinner here - definitely fit for a special occasion!
