“Very nice experience”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

late dinner with family-
menu is restricted, but rich with flavors.
Braise bases that menu on what they can acquire locally, so while the menu is small, it does a great deal with 'what's in season'.

nice, relaxed atmosphere… pretty cool in a reviving area of Milwaukee, just north of the AB Clock Tower.
larger tables are 'almost' family style- long, wide, block tables, but spacing between groups.
2's and 4's are normal setups- bar area a bit small, but well laid out.

even the 'large' plates are relatively small, but quite delicious.
a bit pricey, but the meals are well worth it.

server was fine, not super friendly or helpful, but expedient and thorough.

a must visit at least once- try many different things!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Chose this restaurant from the reviews while visiting the city. Service, booze and food was fabulous. The flavors in the food exploded in your mouth! Highly recommend it. Thanks for the wine and sourgham popcorn anniversary party!

“Local that exceeds the hype in Milwaukee”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Start to finish an amazing local food experience. Like other reviewers have mentioned, I have had better but not often, and the way the whole experience was packaged and delivered certainly pushes it into my top 20-30 dining experiences. There is something special about eating fresh and seasonal that draws us to the experience but few deliver on that promise the way Braise does. If you like lamb this is certainly one of your best opportunities to eat it in Milwaukee. Desserts were amazing, solid service, a visible and engaging chef and a great atmosphere. We will be back again and again and plan to take advantage of some of the special programs Braise offers.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

I really enjoyed the entire experience here. When I broke it down I've had better food and better service even though both were good here, but something about the atmosphere and the food and the service and the company made this a great visit.

“Excellent farm to table restaurant”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

The freshest and tastiest salad I've ever had! A great place for a variety of fresh ingredients and flavors. Roasted carrots were very good as was the red curry goat.
