The food at Sunday brunch was good but not fabulous. The atmosphere was very interesting but it was a little loud for conversations. Service was slow but excellent server interaction-he was witty and friendly. The antique wooden bar is fabulous. I will return for another type meal and see how it goes.

We shared this dining experience with good friends (of 36 years) who were visiting Seattle--we had not seen them in over 8 years. We appreciated the caring service, wonderful atmosphere (great restored bar!), good food and relatively quiet sound level. We had a great evening. Our vegan friend particularly enjoyed the selections which were available to her.

Great place for good food and conversation. Cocktail w/bourbon, maraschino and absinthe was great. Cornbread was good, though not the best ever. Carrots and poached shrimp were tasty, though needed more chili and salt, respectively. Burger was high-quality, but a bit overpriced for what it was. Plum clafoutis was well made. Overall, a very enjoyable evening with good service.

Excellent service and food on Saturday night. The cocktails were very interesting and excellent. Although intimate and open beam design the noise level was not too loud. Bar and art were gorgeous as well. Fun place and Jones took great care of us all night.

Amazing! Everything from the restored bar and paintings, to the locally-sourced food, to the dynamic staff and creative cuisine made this an delectable dining journey. 3.5 hrs and 6 disheS later, we left very happy. Thanks to Chef Eric and the whole Brunswick crew!

We loved the history behind the name, art, and back bar. The cornbread with honey butter and the crudité platter with the in house smoked ham was delicious. The service was personable, sincere, and attentive. The cocktails were unique and delicious as well.

The restaurant is attractive, the service competent and gracious, the food is delicious and inventive. The parking in the area is horrible and the restaurant noise level is such, that I would not recommend this particular establishment. My date and I couldn't hear each other, making it an uncomfortable occasion. Too bad, because most everything else about the restaurant would motivate me to recommend it.

After passing by this neighborhood restaurant many times, my boyfriend and I finally gave it a try. We started with the charcuterie board with house-made buckwheat crisps -- I love it when your server is attentive enough to give you more crisps to finish the rest of your meat without telling you. Squash cakes made for a nice break as we followed with the fried chicken. I had to sacrifice the space made in my stomach for dessert to make room for the delicious chicken.

Fabulous bar. Chelsea does some great cocktails. Our server Cuyler provided a transformational experience. Great knowledge of the menu and very friendly style. The menu is inspired. We will become regulars after this first visit.

Our dining experience was mixed. Our waiter was very nice, but not attentive. The food was good and the restaurant is beautiful. Our waiter was so slow , I paid our tab at the bar.
I received a phone call (a nice one) accusing me of not paying my tab.
Brunch for two took two hours while several people waited outside for tables.

Three of us enjoyed an early weeknight dinner, in which we shared many small plates. We chose 3 cheeses and 2 meats from the charcuterie and cheese selections and all were excellent. Everything was fresh and the flavor combinations were wonderful. We ordered the cornbread & honey butter at the outset since it takes 15 min. to prepare, and it was worth the wait. Also tried the clams, baby head lettuces, & other dishes I can't recall, but we loved every dish. This is a fairly small restaurant (40 seats) so probably need a reservation most nights. The best part was our server, Avery. He was funny and attentive, and helped make the evening entirely enjoyable, especially with his cocktail recommendations. The interior of the restaurant is light and bright and just feels right. We will definitely be back.

With the Blood and Sand cocktail on their menu it was definitely a hit from start.
We had brunch and we loved it. Food was good, service was attentive and timely. We will definitely come back without kids and at night for more cocktails!!!

We love, love, love this restaurant. It's in our neighborhood and we try to eat there every chance we get. This time the star of the table was the heirloom tomato appetizer. It was really, really good. I had the short ribs which was also excellent and my wife had the fried chicken which was equally incredible. Always a great experience with awesome waiters and great food.

The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable, the right balance of sincerity without too much formality. If you live anywhere in the area, I'd highly recommend you try Brunswick and Hunt for a weekend brunch or dinner any day it's open.

We waited 40 minutes while watching the chef pick up eggs with his bare hands, who had a mustache and beard that was not covered.
The food was ok, nothing spectacular.
The waiter was excellent.
It was so noisy my husband, who is hard of hearing, could not hear me, so we could not talk during lunch.
it is a good place for neighborhood people who drink or have little kids, if they can stand the noise.
There is NO PLACE TO PARK.

I came here for brunch and had an excellent experience. The waiter was very friend, informative and helpful, but not overbearing. The food was excellent, including their oven baked frittatas. The bloody mary was excellent as well, good spice level. I would definitely come back here for brunch and hope to come for dinner as well.

Arrived on Father's Day for Brunch. No one was there to greet us so we stood in the doorway a bit until someone saw us. As a note, another group arrived after us and got tired of waiting so just sat themselves at a table. We overheard them mentioned they had reservations and thought it was weird not to be noticed when they arrived, seated and have to ask for menus.
As this restaurant is not huge we was highly disappointed in the level of service - which was very slow - waited 35 mins for our orders to be taken.
Our egg dishes arrived both over cooked - the waiter did have one of our dishes re-done by the kitchen. Already a long wait by now, my husband decided not to request the same for his meal.
This restaurant has a nice history and beautiful back bar and paintings. However, overall, it was a big disappointment - service was slow and the food was just equally so-so.
Will not be returning anytime soon.

My husband and I split several of the small plates, and they were all delicious. The grilled fava beans were particularly good. The service was very friendly and quick. No issue making some of the dishes vegetarian on request.
Amazing food, fabulous service (thanks Rachel)!
The food was amazing. Literally, everything we had was prepared or cooked to perfection and tasted phenomenal. Our waitress, Rachel, was knowledgeable and attentive. The ambiance was mellow and warm with a large group of friends enjoying cocktails at the bar, a group celebrating a birthday behind us and the two of us out for a rare date night. Seemed like something for everyone.

Really pleased to have discovered this place that we like so much, and so close to home. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were charmed by the ambiance, the staff, and the story of the beautiful bar and its partner painting. My husband loves the cocktails, and I love the wine offerings. We always get the charcuterie and cheese plate, and we especially love the house cured ham and buckwheat crackers. Steak frites are perfect, and the halibut special is melt-in-your-mouth tender. I can't get enough of the asparagus, so perfectly combined with sweet ham, tangy cheese, and lemon zest. The Meyer lemon posset is a unique dessert offering that I particularly love. And on top of it all, we really love the staff. They recognize us when we come in, welcoming us back like old friends. What more could we ask for?
Excellent time for 11 folks
Birthday for me (64th) and 9 others + my wife was very enjoyable experience. Rachel , our server, is top-notch- she was informative , helpful, engaging, and attentive. The first small plates we ordered were excellent; we were in no hurry and never felt to be rushed. Very good bar. Dinners were exceptional, from the Fried Chicken to the Lamb, to the Burger. etc .Nary a clunker. Wow. Everybody had a great time and has voiced it.
