Bru Grill and Market Ratings and Reviews

Asked a friend to recommend a restaurant in the area and she suggested Bru Grill. I met up w/ a different friend for lunch and had an enjoyable experience. This was my second time eating there and I plan on eating there again when in the area. It was a really nice experience and would recommend to a friend.

we live in the area and its nice to have a neighborhood place that is special and has good food too! the French onion soup was delicious and the chopped salad had plenty of chicken no skimping. will go back again with family.

We came to Bru for Sunday brunch and could not have been happier with our experience. We were a party of 7 and both the food and service were great. We loved having the "bottomless champagne" option and the muffins at the table were a nice touch.

They have made changes to the dishes. I have almost always ordered the pork chop and it was notably smaller this time but it included perfectly cooked fresh green beans this time which I have had to order separately in the past. The salmon was also notably smaller but didn't include anything extra. We still enjoyed our meal, but were disappointed in the smaller portions, especially given the price point.

We've been fans of this resteraunt for about 2 years and have gone for dinner at the resteraunt once or twice a month over the period. We've tried many items and enjoyed the new additions to the menu during the time. Recently, Brü changed chefs and menus. We were so disappointed with the new menu (selection, smaller sea food selection, and loss of our favorite items.) the menu has blank space and an ad for Thursday nights. The beer selection was varied in the past and decidedly gone trendy with almost exclusively with IPA and stouts. What happens to the pilsners, lagers, blondes, red, and fruit beer/cider? The food missed the mark beyond that sauces were not reduced properly and the mix of flavor missed the mark as well.
The reality is we are extremely sad that we lost our favorite resteraunt. And it shows, the availability of tables. The place was always hopping during the weekend. But there were tons of tables in both the bar and the resteraunt. I hope management figures this out and brings focus back to this location rather than concentrating on their new location.

Would give service higher but the hostesses were SO slow. With our reservation we were seated 15-minutes after reservation time. And once we were seated we noticed the restaurant was empty. So disappointing! But our server was great, very attentive.

I booked a 11am brunch for my stepdaughter's birthday. My husband and his daughter got the bottomless mimosa's and we all got breakfast food. The portions are hearty and our server was awesome always keeping the champagne and orange juice flowing. We loved it and our breakfast!

This is a place NOT to be missed. Everything from the moment you step in the door, exceptional service, outrageously delicious food and sumptuous desserts. You will never be disappointed at this neighborhood gem. We are quite lucky to have BRU in our immediate neighborhood. And if it's merely a Happy Hour stop in? Well they will set you up! Great HH food menu, drinks, craft cocktails and a beer selection off of 40 taps and fridges full of specialty bottlings, Excellent wine selections by the glass or certainly their full bottle offerings. Pricing is also astoundingly good here. Go BRU or just go home!

Came here to meet friends for our anniversary dinner. It was a Wednesday so reservations were easy to make for 6:30pm. Service was friendly and prompt. The happy hour area was really loud but that's always to be expected. When we were seated at our table, it was not a big deal. I enjoyed the meal and thought it was a tad pricey, but the food was great so I was ok with the total bill.

The food was delicious, including some recent additions to the menu. Clean, fresh, balanced and tasty offerings. The food is quite possibly outshone only by the creative and delectable cocktails. Our waiter, Traver, was perfectly kind, personable and attentive.

Bru has always been my go-to restaurant for many occasions - most of all for meeting with friends. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. When a quiet area is needed, we are always accommodated.

Food was excellent, the decor classy and modern, but the service was weak. Forgot to get us appetizer plates, did not know what garlic bread was (when asked if the bread was garlic bread...it did not look like it, said yes, but it was indeed not), and over all was just mediocre at best. I assume it was just an off night. Food made up for it, was great. So much so that I would go back.

Our first time to Bru Grill. Right off the bat the service was exceptional. It was an amazing experience and my hat is all to all those hard working food servers!! Outstanding job. We had the calamari which was delicious. The food was delivered quickly after ordering which was nice. The salmon was my main meal and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the prime rib which was a large portion so definitely could be shared. It came with all the bells and whistles. Highly recommended!!

The food was not very tasty and the portions did not match the label. I ordered the starter Caesar and my friend ordered another starter salad. Mine came in a small bowl and hers was on a large plate. I confirmed the sizes with the server and she said they were both starter sizes and she said something like "that's just how they come". That just didn't seem right to me. The chicken wings were spicy but had no flavor and tasted like I was eating bland chicken off the bone...not very appetizing.

Always a good choice for a very varied menu, and must comment on our server who was excellent (sorry, cannot remember his name). We're grateful to have this restaurant in our area where good eateries are few and far between!!!

I've been to Bru several times and, other than the occasionally spotty service, it's a great place to go! Great drinks. Delicious food. Amazing desserts. This particular time, we had a great server but she appeared to be one of only 2-3 on a very busy night, so service was kind of slow. She did her best though and was very sweet, so good for her - I'm guessing she was exhausted! But, as usual, the food was great and the drinks were perfect! My one friend had never been before and she was a fast fan. We'll be back.

Date nite with my wife. This was our first time dining at Bru. There was no wait time with my reservation. The hostess was very nice. There was a large party in the middle of the restaurant and this added to the noise, but we were still able to have a conversation without raising our voices. Both of our entrees were really good. I tried the fried meatloaf with bacon baked in. Our server was nice but a little overwhelmed with the large party. I'll give him a pass. I would definitely return.

Nice place for a casual meal...had calamari and pretzels as an app with cesear salad and then shared a sausage platter. Plenty of good food for two. Nice to also have an one man band strumming so tunes!

THIS NIGHT WAS MY BIRTHDAY DINNER.THE NOISE WAS DEAFENING AND WE ASKED FOR A TABLE IN THE BACK. THE TABLE WAS OUTSIDE OF THE RESTROOMS.
THE FOOD WAS AWFUL.. THIS IS THE THIRD TIME HERE. FIRST TIME WAS GREAT, SECOND TIME FAIR, AND THIS TIME...WELL, I WONT BE RETURNING AND I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT.
FOR EXAMPLE, THE FRENCH ONION SOUP TASTED BURNT AND SOUR. THE FLATBREAD WAS TASTLESS, TARTAR WAS NASTY AND WAS SERVED WITH STALE POTATO CHIPS. THE LAVENDER MARTINIS WERE GOOD BUT THE PRESENTATION WAS SLOPPY. WE DECIDED NOT TO ORDER AN ENTREE SINCE NOTHING WAS VERY GOOD AND WE LOST OUR APPETITE AT THIS POINT.I NEVER GIVE A PLACE A REVIEW LIKE THIS BUT AFTER SPENDING 135.00 FOR FOOD THAT DOESNT EVEN DESERVE 1 STAR, MAKE ME UPSET ENOUGH TO LET OTHERS KNOW.

Bru is an excellent choice for everyday dining or special occasions. The craft beer selection is excellent with over 40 beers on tap and an even greater selection of bottled beer in their open market section. Great menu options from appetizers all they up through seafood and steak selections. The Bru burger is really one of the best burgers around. Good service and great location.

We chose Bru as recommended by a friend. Overall our experience was great. One negative, the coffee was bland. I think it needs an upgrade. One big positive, Logan, our server, was incredible. He was knowledgeable, attentive, happy, and very helpful with suggestions. A big plus, and a definite reason to go back again.

We were celebrating Father's day and most of the family at the table had never been to Bru Grill and Market before (my husband, son and I have). I was confident and hopeful that everyone would like my choice but I have a difficult family to please so I wasn't sure. Everyone RAVED about what a great choice I made. Everyone loved their food and thought the ambiance was great! Best part though...was Ryan our server. He was absolutely fantastic! We felt so welcome and taken care of from start to finish; we all couldn't stop praising him to each other. Even my 4 year old son mentioned Ryan again on the car ride home! It was an awesome experience and we will be back over and over again, I'm sure of it!
