We absolutely loved our entire experience at Braise. The staff couldn't have been friendlier nor more accommodating. The cocktails were unusual and delightful. We tried several small plates plus entrees. Fresh and creative faire! We will definitely return again and highly recommend Braise.

Wow was the word on my lips as I departed this restaurant. All the foods are as fresh as you can get and the combination of flavors is singular. The menu is ever changing so no point in identifying specific choices but I'm SO glad...More

The food here is definitely worth a 5-star rating. We sampled as much of the menu as possible, including the curry chicken, beef brisket, cheese tray, bresaola, coriander carrots, Thai pork, pretty much everything that caught our eye. There is also an excellent beer and...More

Went to Braise as part of a large group. They had a separate room for us, which allowed us to mingle and not disturb other guests. Brought out appetizers - various cheeses (all good), what I believe was a red pepper hummus dip, and pork...More
