We came after noon rush. The wait staff was attentive. Food was excellent. I had a turkey sandwich and the restaurant let me swap out bread type so pumpernickel bagel over ciabatta. The lightly dressed salad was a good accompaniment to the sandwich. I had a very nice Chardonnay. It's a comfortable restaurant and I liked the contemporary vibe.

I had a business lunch here. The service was good and the food was very good. It took a while to get our water refilled and the waitress checked on us a few times too many (interrupting our conversation). Otherwise it's a nice place for brunch and lunch.

At first, I never considered a fresh spring mix with a slight hint of a vinaigrette to be a side dish for breakfast. However, that with various quiches, benedict's and scrambles are the basis for a very eclectic and rather upscale breakfast menu. The atmosphere and service are above average. If you want to take someone out for a special... More

This was a great find! I found this through reviews and decided to give it a try after looking through their menu. The setting was classy-eclectic with all different chairs and tables set together. My mom got tea that came in an adorable teapot; I got an espresso that came in vintage china - so fun! The food was also... More

I had a day of vacation and an appointment in the Shopping Center the restaurant is in so I thought, breakfast out us always a treat, not so much here. Sign on the door stated no electronic devices, oh good, will be nice and quiet. That was not the case, the acoustics were such that it was so loud with... More

We recently had breakfast at La Brioche. This is a great place with wonderful food and service. In addition they have a very nice outdoor seating area for dining. I would thoroughly recommend this place.

I've been to La Brioche twice in the last couple of months -- once with friends, once with family. Both times, the service was excellent & the food delectable. I am a huge fan of the breakfast crepes and the vegetarian Benedict. The atmosphere has an antique, fancy feel, making it a unique experience. (You wouldn't expect this given the... More

Our son and his girlfriend have taken us here before. So when they gave me a choice for my birthday, of course I selected La Brioche. Interesting features of this particular restaurant are that no use of cellphones or handheld devices is allowed inside. We turned off our cellphones after taking a photo outside. My husband and son ordered pizzas,... More

This storefront in a strip mall belies what awaits within: a sanctuary of classical ambiance, delicious food and friendly, expert service. Portions are generous, and prices are reasonable. We shared an unhurried lunch of veggie quesadillas and Greek salad -- an international delight! The kitchen graciously split the portions at our request, saving us that messy task at table. We...

I am not one to give a poor review very often. You really have to mess up on basic services and technical skills for me to be unhappy enough to give a rating of less than a 3. Unfortunately, this was one of those experiences. We did call ahead to reserve a table for our party of 7 and they... More
