This restaurant is housed in the Memphis hotel. The night we were there we were almost the only customers. Yet the waitress, a young and enthusiastic girl, was not very efficient. She knew nothing whatsoever about wines, and could only tell you what she had learned by heart about the food.

The decor of the place is rather depressing. We won't go back here.

We had a very interesting experience when we ate at this Brasserie. We made a booking for 4 people at 7.30 p.m. When we turned up at the Brasserie we were greeted with suprize! The waitress said Oh, you have a booking, these people also said they had a booking. The place had two tables occupied and it would not have mattered if we had not booked as there were many tables to choose from. It took for ever to get a menu, in fact it was comical watching the waitress attend to the other patrons. I think she wanted to stagger the cooking for the chef so did not give us menus until she thought the chef could handle the order. The wine list was no existent and the waitress told us that she would recommend the wines based on what we preferred. In the end we did not like her choice and chose the other wine she offered. The amount she poured into our glass was minimal to say the least. After two glasses she asked us if we want another glass. We asked her how much a glass of wine was. When she told us we were shocked we had paid so much for such a small amount in the glass. We told her this and she offered to give us a glass free of charge. Not free after what we paid I can tell you. The food was just ok, nothing to get excited about at all. I would not go back here again and am surprised by some of the great reviews here. Really not worth the money and the service was the strangest I have been given.

The owner/waitress is very friendly and helpful. The food was fresh, delicious and high quality. We ate there twice - the first time as it was convenient and the second because we enjoyed it so much. The house red wine was a good price and very drinkable. All in all a good experience and I can highly recommend eating there.
