Excellent food, drinks and service. We had the Brussel's sprouts, flatbread and artichokes. The atmosphere was intimate but could very easily accommodate a larger, louder group. The piano is a nice touch. We will definitely be back!More

We enjoyed a wonderful tapas style light dinner with a blind tasting of wines with 4 couples. It was fun and the staff accomodated our format for the gathering with excellence.

We came to Brannan's with high expectations for a birthday dinner. There is nothing wrong with the "Tapas" approach this restaurant has chosen. The only problem is the lack of performance both from the kitchen and the serving staff. Both were probably overwhelmed with a...More

We were soooo hungry and the menu looked just right! We ordered, and shared, the tempura green beans, the ahi poke stack, the avocado toast, a few oysters on the half shell and the yummy flatbread. The service was impeccable.

My cousin Dee and I went for Happy Hour (3 - 6 pm) and had gin and tonics accompanied by barbecued ribs, beef sliders and tempura string beans. One small criticism: we were not told that the sauce for the tempura had goat cheese in...More

Pretty sure that these reviews contributing to the high rating were mostly from its earlier status as a steak house, perhaps with other management as well. Because there was almost no one there when we went last week (all other restaurants that were open were...More

What a pleasant surprise. While staying at Indian Springs Resort, we walked to this restaurant to have our New Year’s Day Dinner. Great small plates with great variety so that anyone can find several dishes they will like.
