Browntrout

Browntrout is a comfortable, casual fine-dining experience. We celebrate the bounty of local farms with classic American dishes as well as nods to foreign fare. Located in the North Center neighborhood, we offer outdoor patio seating in the summer as well as a large communal table that accommodates parties up to 18. We have a full bar stocked with local spirits and beer, seating there is first come, first served. Choose from a worldly selection of wines as well as craft cocktails and local beers. We serve the same organic hand-made food for the children, who eat free from 5-7pm. Our rooftop garden hosts an array of herbs and vegetables and sustainably farmed products are sourced whenever possible. Seafood and meats are all free range and sustainable. Browntrout welcomes large parties and events of all sizes. Call to book your next event!

"We dined at Browntrout on its last night in business—August 30, 2015. As always, the food was excellent, and the service friendly. We've consistently visited three or four times a year for the past six years, and are sorry to see Browntrout go. Incidentally, I can't seem to select any of the "what would you recommend this restaurant for" checkboxes except the one marked "neighborhood gem." Browntrout was that, but it was also "fit for foodies," and, on Sundays, when there was live music, had a "vibrant bar scene.""

"This was our first time at Browntrout. We ordered the fried chicken, which is a Sunday specialty, and it was quite good -- tender and juicy. I think this restaurant would have more business if the Number 11 bus was still running. Too bad it's going to be closing at the end of this month."

"Browntrout is a quiet little place with a very nice ambiance (good indie music in the background), tasty beverages, and outright amazing food. Some of the portion sizes are small (such as that of the fish I had my first time there), so if you're hungry you might ask your server for appropriate suggestions; the very helpful staff we've interacted with have known details down to where and how everything was sourced.
The food, though -- the food! Their 25%-mushroom burger is one of the best I've ever had (to cook it beyond medium-rare would be a crime). The garnishes and sides with that fish were likewise outstanding. There's much on their menu I haven't yet tried, and for that reason we'll be back."

"I picked this place to take my two boys who live in the area. The food was unique and tasty and a good, upscale place to visit. It was a change from their usual pizza/burger place for sure!
Our waiter was attentive without being invasive which we really appreciated. He was also very knowledgeable about the food."

"The highlight of the experience was the hostess. Kind and genuine from the start to finish. The mussels and lake trout spread were lackluster. Needed more seasoning as they were very bland. Such a shame too, the mussels were the largest I've ever had.
The server delivered our food and forgot to even come back and take an entree order so we decided to go get BBQ down the street.
Half price wine bottles was nice for a Sunday night!
Really wanted a good neighborhood restaurant but the service and food fell way short."

"We were seated right on time and received prompt but not rushed service. The menu is somewhat limited, which I imagine follows a philosophy of let's do a fewer number of dishes very well, than a larger number not so terrific. But I would recommend checking the menu in advance to ensure that you'll find what you want. While we enjoyed the meal, we all thought it was somewhat pricey for the level provided. And while the rolls were great, paying $6 or so for them was not something that I am used to. For us to return, it would take another special occasion."

"We were disappointed that the menu was different than what was posted on-line as that was what drew us to this restaurant. The web page should be changed if the menu changes. The food was good, not particularly creative and not great, and we felt it was overpriced for the quality and presentation."
