The mussels were absolutely the best - sooo tender and flavorful. The frites were pretty ordinary. I also had the corn soup with lobster and croutons. The soup was divine - velvety smooth and delicious - but the three tiny morsels of lobster were barely...More

Had brunch this morning (8/11, Sunday). We sat at our table for perhaps 10 minutes with no one coming by. Finally we were asked if there was something we wanted to drink. After water and a soda were brought we then waited another 5-10 minutes...More

Service was very good. All the servers worked in symphony. Their Frites were great..The clam sandwich was not too pleasing to my palate. Ambience great! I will try them again but try another menu item.

The food at Brasserie Beck is quite tasty. The warm, crusty bread kept disappearing faster than the staff could refill the basket. The scallop with crispy pork belly and pea puree was my favorite dish of the night. The lamb ragu papardelle was luscious. My...More
