My boyfriend and I ended up here after other plans fell through on a weekend night. I guess we lucked out because we got seated right away (a few people arrived just after us who had to wait a bit).
Food - People have been raving about the onion tart which I have yet to try, but the onion soup was AMAZING. I cannot recommend it enough. Our main courses (oh my I wish I could remember what mine was called...it was a sweet-sour meat...Darn it.) were fantastic, my boyfriend had the Coq Au Vin. The wine was fantastic and paired nicely with our meals. We had the cheesecake for dessert which was really good, as far as cheesecakes go.
Service: The service was superb. The boyfriend and I both developed a crush on our adorable and knowledgeable waitress! She knew the menu front to back and was very conversational without being intrusive. La Brasserie is lucky to have her!
Value: The wine was good value, although the bottle price seems a bit expensive (glass x 5). The appies and meals were definitely worth the money, and they weren't even that pricey.
Ambiance: It's unfortunate that they don't have a waiting area, because the unseated patrons sort of mingle around the tables. Other than that it's lively, a bit noisy (in a good way) with a welcoming atmosphere. We got the table right next to the window which was great because we got to people-watch and had a little bit more room.
We now compare all our meals out to La Brasserie, mostly for the wonderful service. We definitely have plans on going back.
