We love this spot. Despite the fact that it is very small and is cash only this is a great dining spot. It is a three course dinner which consists of the appetizer, main course and dessert. We ordered tuna tartare and arugula salad to begin. Both were delicious. The tuna was fresh and had a very good texture. Next... More

The chef, Brian, greeted us when we arrived for our reservation. His power had just come back on after having been out all day. He'd been able to get a hold of all of the other parties with reservations to tell them not to come. He hadn't been able to reach us, so he was there waiting for us. He... More

Our dinner was delicious from start to finish at this pre fixe restaurant. I highly recommend the wild mushroom soup and wild mushroom and goat cheese ravioli as appetizers. The halibut entree was cooked perfectly - moist yet crispy on top with tiny croutons and served with perfectly cooked carrots, snap peas and potatoes. The chocolate pot de creme dessert... More

We love Brian's! It's always delicious, always quality ingredients, always well thought out. My chef sister and chef brother in law said Brian's was one of the best meals they have had in years. The fixed price menu is such a value. Love this place. Melanie and all the stuff are just lovely. Thanks for a wonderful evening!

This place is a real gem! You could walk past it and miss it, but DON'T! The food was 5 star, the service was top notch, atmosphere was quaint. They'll call you multiple times to confirm your reservation, probably because the place is small so they want to make sure every seat is filled. Parking is at a small metered... More

We went to Brian's for the first time a week or so ago and were very pleasantly surprised. Our meals were wonderful and we highy recommend Brian's. They had a varied menu, and from what we saw of other diner's choices, everything was beautifully presented. Prices were quite reasonable for the area and quality of food. We will definitely return.

This is a small but elegant restaurant. It has a price fix menu, which does change occasionally. The atmosphere is lovely and the food was wonderful. It is a BYOB and cash or check only. I would suggest making reservations

We celebrated a birthday here and had dinner at Brian's before going to the theatre. Great little restaurant - I recommend you book a reservation because it's not a large space. They offered a prix fixe menu with a starter, entree and dessert. Very reasonably priced. Service was excellent and personable. Food was pretty good although some things tasted better... More

We made last minute reservations for a Wednesday evening. I understand it's usually harder to get a weekend reservation. The three course prix fixe menu is small but has many tempting starters, mains, and desserts you get to choose from. We both ordered the mushroom ravioli to start and it was excellent. For our main courses, we ordered the salmon... More
