Bru Grill and Market Ratings and Reviews
I'm somewhat biased, not because I own it or work here, but because I'm a local. I've been to this restaurant 87 times. I've been here alone, with my wife, my dogs, my parents, my sons, friends and fellow foodies, neighbors, and business colleagues.
I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner there, always GOOD and sometimes EXCELLENT! I have had a several of their handcrafted cocktails and MANY unique draught beers.
If you're still unsure, try it and let Matt and his crew personally win you over!
Bru is a very pleasing dinner experience. The service is good and the food choices nicely varied and fresh. It's a great place to meet with friends because everyone's taste in food and drink is offered at Bru. Only drawback is the noise level. I would request a quiet, back room seat, away from the bar area if you want to have a conversation.
Was in the area for the weekend and found Bru on the map. Checked menu and that was it. Made the reservation.
Great food and knowledgeable bartenders. Actually made my drink correctly without me having to teach them.
I will be going back when in that area again. The Steaks were great along with the Salmon.
We were seated in a nice area and immediately greeted by our waiter. We had a Calamari starter which was excellent. We delayed ordering to enjoy cocktails and Calamari. The waiter came back to take the order and passed by one more time. We didn't see him until dinner had been finished for a little bit and we had to flag him over. He seemed a little distracted or maybe short handed that evening. Overall, the evening was nice and we would recommend the Bru Grill.
The bar was very noisy; mostly groups of females, and noise bled thru to the dining room. That's the ONLY negative remark I can make. The food was terrific: bru and cru appetizer was sooo good and clever; ditto the tuna tartare, it had a little kick to it that the mango and cucumber smoothed out. Beet salad plentiful tho the dressing was a bit tart for my palate; swordfish emtre perfectly cooked, rich and filling. Wine policy is so smart and waiter was outstanding, attentive and effecient. We had a Visa gift card that Bru's system couldn't manage correctly, but we Will come back again soon.
Bru is the only fine dining restaurant in Lake Forest. Although it is casual the food really is fine dining. We always take birthday celebrations there and it is the place to take out of town guests.
I am exceptionally glad that Bru opened in Lake Forest, and by the way, if you get to meet the owner, do chat with him, he always has a lot of interesting things to say and is very accommodating.
Wonderful brunch at Bru! So many choices and both my friend and I Ioved what we ordered. I had the chopped salad with grilled chicken and she ordered the shrimp and grits. Both were outstanding! The bottomless champagne was also terrific to go with the meal. Although we didn't order from it today, they have quite an extensive and impressive wine and beer menu 👍. The prices and service are also both worth mentioning for this great place as well. I've dined here multiple times and every time, my guests and Zi are happy we chose Bru! You will be happy, too!!!
We had never been to Bru before and were pleasantly surprised. The staff who greeted us wee friendly, and we got seated right away. Our waiter, Curtis, could not have been more attentive or efficient. The food was great, as were the drinks. The ambiance was beautiful yet not stuffy.
After our meal I spoke with the manager, Matt, I believe, and he was friendly and receptive (well, how difficult could that have been...I was sharing our good first experience).
Compared to our less than mediocre experience at the new Hendrix restaurant in Dana Point, this was a lovely surprise. We will definitely go back.
Everyone was satisfied with their food. The only food disappointment was not enough Hollandaise and the country potatoes were oily when the request was for crispy. Our server was wonderful and I'm sorry I can't remember her name. We appreciated being able to get a reservation last minute through Open Table.
The food is amazing and the prices are good BUT three different servers showed up with incorrect side dishes. By the time they got it right, we were finished eating. Note: the manager comped my friend's dinner, which was great, but we would have rather had good service.
I met my girlfriends here because we wanted to try somewhere new!! We were here for four hours for the bottomless mimosas!! We were seated at a table in the back where it was quiet and we were able to really enjoy good conversation. Everyone was happy with their meal good flavor and great presentation. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly even when they were very busy! When we left we were each given a bottle of champagne in a cute bag!! Wow such a great time we will be going back!!
Good food. Had a burger that was juicy and cooked as I asked, wife had a salad that was very tasty and a good flat bread pizza, and we had an awesome dessert that was a s'mores thing that was large and very scrumptious! Good beer and wine variety as well and our server did a good job and was attentive and professional.
