I liked the decor and the simplicity of the food. Service was excellent too. However, I did feel that the menu was not large enough - we had limited choice. They did have a good selection of Scotch (at least the ones I liked), but...More

Just great food, service, and atmosphere. We loved the tapas style menu and can't wait to get back to Milwaukee to eat here again.

Loved Braise! We enjoyed a great tapas style dinner with friends. Wonderfully prepared local ingredients. Staff was nice, they even gave a free dish that they made by mistake. Decent selection of wines but I didn't recognize any.

There was nothing on the menu - not one thing - I would order or eat. Staff was helpful. No review. Restaurant is in old bowling alley. Floor and tables reclaimed wood from bowling lanes.

My family makes it an annual event to come to Milwaukee and eat at Braise. The food is always delightful, surprising and satisfying. The local cheese platter is the perfect way to start a great evening there. And it only gets better after that...

It's not often you walk away from an excellent meal feeling less than satisfied, but that's my conclusion about Braise. Braise offers a unique and eclectic menu. Mix and/or match on small plates and appetizers. Limited choice(5 or 6) entrees. Many ingredients are home or...More
