"I have had many dinners here with friends and relatives, and they all love the ambiance, the service, the noise level, and of course, the food. We love the fact that we can talk and actually hear each other. The decor is stunning. So, it has everything going for it !"

"Stopped in for brunch after mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral. The selection was wonderful, and the wait staff was incredibly accommodating, friendly, and attentive. Felt very upscale and a nice way to spend a late Sunday morning. A little pricy, but worth it, especially for a special occasion."

"Fresh ideas, fine food, friendly folks -- a handsome, civilized, sophisticated venue in Midtown with outstanding booth seating for small parties and appropriately festive large tables for crowds. Acoustics are exceptional for private confabs while larger parties celebrate whatever. The beignets for dessert are awesome, the duck preps are perfect, the seafood is always fresh and fragrant, and the servers are knowledgeable and obliging."

"We had a hard time finding a Sunday brunch spot that wasn't outrageously expensive and accommodated everyone's food requirements. We hit the jackpot with Brasserie 8 1/2. It is beautiful, classy, quiet, and spacious. The food was excellent and we never felt rushed. What a find!"
