Waitress came to ask us 2 times about our order,
Coctails we ordered didnt taste nice,
We had really poor table eventhough i booked it in advance
It was very difficult and long to order something
And in the end we payed a bill and half of the thing werent even ours. After we called the waitress to show her that this is not our bill, she came after twice to ask us what exactly did we ordered.

Food was good, but they should work on the service, especially if its St, Valentine day and people want to enjoy their dinner with their closer ones.

After arriving for our booking we were told there is no food left as the Christmas party had eaten it all. No one bothered even calling to let us know...our table was set as well.

Lovely place but music was too loud, we could not hear ourselves speak in the restaurant side, a dj was in the other side so we wanted to sit in the restaurant to avoid it being too loud. We asked for it to be turned down and staff happily did. Pizzas are lovely and truffle chips gorgeous!

I had enjoyed a lovely lunch a few weeks prior so suggested this for a Christmas lunch for 7 colleagues. We usually go to other brera locations for drinks so was excited to try the chalet. I booked this table on on 22/11 to dine on 4/12. Upon arrival (on time) we were invited to sit at 2x high bar stools which we declined as we wanted to sit together and be comfortable for the lunch. After waiting around with minimal communication a table was set up for us (next to the door and in a single strip vs a normal table formation. This had only 6 chairs and we were offered a bar stool (again waiting til someone else finished their coffee). By this time we had waited around 30 mins before being sat down. Thereafter service was rather slow and we did not really get any acknowledgement or apology. Staff also didnt seem to know that there was a festive menu on or how to accommodate vegans/those with dietary needs. Sadly disappointed.

I have been here before and the service was poor (Manager too busy chatting to notice us waiting and service very slow for lunchtime) but the pizza was fantastic, so I thought I would give it another chance and I am very happy that I did. The service was spot and quite amazing as it was just her covering quite a few tables; she was engaged, attentive, friendly and there were no delays. The pizza was as amazing as my previous visit, Recommended.

The atmosphere is very pleasant with outdoor terrace and fountain.

The service is very good. The ladies are so smiley and very attentive to small details. Their pizza is also delicious and quite unusual recipes.

When we were sitting, there was a gentlemen with his colleagues and the team started singing the Birthday song with cake and the sparkles. It seemed to be a real surprise for them! It’s nice to see place where staff really cares!

Will definitely recommend ! Big thank you! Really made my day today!

Brera Terrace is such a beautiful location near the fountain with a relaxing water sound while you are having lunch or dinner. They have authentic Italian pizzas and amazing salads! Tried Calzone this time, the dough is soo fine right from the oven with the smoked cheese taste! ❤️
Loved the summer cocktail too. The atmosphere itself is very good, some nice music on the background and such lovely ladies there delivering a great service. Thanks guys for such a pleasant time 🤗

Staff more interested in hugging each other than paying attention to customers. The 2for1 cocktail menu only allows you to have 2 of the SAME cocktail. Set menu advertised in wharf poster but not available on menu. Unable to provide an expresso at 8.45pm as machine turned off (though place doesn’t close until 9pm). Food nice but small portions. Lovely location, disappointing service.

Thank you for the feedback Victoria! We are sorry to hear that your experience wasn't good enough. Our happy hour offer is different from others - 2 cocktails for £9.95 and for selected drinks only. Regarding the set menu- it was a limited time offer only and was stoped with the launch of a new menu at the terrace. Your comments on coffee and service have been passed to managers and talks will be provided to the team. If you wish to discuss further, please email us to info@cafebrera.co m

It’s very aesthetically pleasing as it’s got a waterfall on the outside part and there are lemons on trees in Brera Terrace, giving summer vibes, with fairy lights. The ambience is great ! They played nice, upbeat songs to set the mood.
The service we received from the waitresses was very welcoming and warm. It was my friend’s birthday and they offered to cut the cake, light the candles and singing happy birthday - all in all it was a lovely experience - for me and my friends.
Definitely will be going back there.

We had a table booked for dinner for 7.30 pm. When we arrived we were seated and given menus but when we wanted to order we were told that the kitchen was closed. We had a drink anyway. The service was poor and the service staff had poor attitudes. Every interaction we had with a member of staff it was like we were an inconvenience to them.

We had some changes within the team and we are always working on the service improvements so we can deliver our best to the customers. Please give us another try and we won't upset you!

Nice outdoor space but very poor service. I booked a table but had to stand for 10mins as no one attended to us. Once seated, we ordered drinks and given food menus but no one came to take orders for about an hour, and then when we asked to give our order, we have been told that the kitchen is already closed (at 8pm). The manager was very good though, she handled it well and arranged the kitchen to serve us food.

Booked the terrace to take colleagues and an important visitor for a quick lunch. It started out great, with the terrace and waterfall from the fountains creating a lovely environment. It then went downhill. We all ordered off the set menu which was Cacio e Pepe (spaghetti pasta) and Bandiera Italiana (linguine pasta) dishes. Both came out with tubular pasta (possibly rigatoni) with no explanation. The waitress who was the only redeeming feature of our experience, checked with the chef who said the'yd run out. She was apologetic and later spoke to her manager to get 10% off the tab. But --- we wouldn't have ordered it if we'd known. Further, i got an email from Opentable stating that Cafe Brera had cancelled our booking due to our non-attendance which is shady at best!

It is a great location with nice surroundings however the music is way too loud. The food is very average also which is a real shame. We had language barriers with the waitress also. If these were improved, I would go back.
