A classic French brasserie (translation is beer hall), not a French restaurant or bistro. Simple preparations of classic French dishes with an emphasis on affordability right down to the free on sight

I had high expectations and honestly I'm not hard to please but this was not a great experience. There were 7 of us, traveling from different areas to meet for dinner. Three of us ordered an appetizer. My French Onion Soup never arrived, although the other two appetizers did arrive (salad and escargot). Our waitress apologized once we asked where the soup was and offered to put the order in (she told me she forgot) but by that time my dinner companions had completed their apps so I declined. Then our entrees were delivered....except mine. Once again our waitress apologized and placed my order which came out when most of my companions were completing their dinners. Truth be told at that point I didn't want to eat. In fairness, the general manager apologized, comp'd my meal, gave me a gift certificate for future use and brought us each a glass of champagne. He tried to make up for it. I had heard great things about Gaslight. I live on the North Shore and have been anticipating a second Gaslight opening in Lynnfield. I will not return.

Breakfast at 10 and been waiting for food for some time. Food was s great as usual, through portions could be little bigger. Waitresses smile - not even once. They look like it's funeral or something.

My partner and I went for a date night. We reserved a table and it was ready in time for our arrival. The service was impeccable, and we found the food absolutely amazing. We ordered Escargot to start and it was perfect (and no need to deal with shells). We selected the Bar Steak and Roasted Swordfish, accompanied by some Pinot Noir. The food was delicious though the swordfish portion was a bit small. We had a great time and will definitely be back in the future!

Anything that has brussel sprouts is delicious.

Recently made my second visit here after having a decent, albeit crowded, experience during restaurant week. Was expecting the same quality of food only to be disappointed. My first tipoff should have been that it was a major holiday weekend and no one was in the restaurant, not even wait staff. Apparently this also applied to the kitchen staff who could only serve one decent dish. French onion soup was candy sweet, completely disgusting. My steak tartare was mostly a giant brown old lump, thankful that I didn't get food poisoning. The bone marrow was barely present, basically yielding a single bite. The steak frites had soggy fries and a steak that was almost uncuttable. The chicken dish was so overwhelmingly dry that it had to be sent back. And finally, the one success of the night was the duck breast which was good. Service was fine, but the chef was either asleep or out of town. For the money it's not even close to being worth the risk. One bad experience is all I need to never return. If you can't serve quality food every night then close your doors on the off nights.

Thank you for dining with us Brian. You planned an enjoyable evening out and instead from the content and tone of your review angered. My 35 year Boston hospitality career has had so many successes, few times can I remember a guest being coming away so miserable. I apologize for our complete failure. I will share your comments with our team. Though we failed to demonstrate it, each and every one of the Gaslight staff take their craft and career seriously. Reviewing your comments will give no relief to you but we can certainly be sure a meal like yours is not repeated. Please consider responding with your full name and address so we may send a gift certificate as an incentive to return and enjoy the same deliciously composed meal and graciously served meal so many of our guests have enjoyed in the past. Respectfully, Jeffrey Gates Owner Gaslight Brasserie

Went here for brunch this weekend. Place was pretty cool. Coffee was pretty decent. I ordered the Croque-Madame and was super delicious. The Turkey hash was good as well.

Its over priced, the food is not done up to par with what it cost and the staff is very short tempered/ rude. Worst restaurant weekended dinner yet! Very small portions too!

Thank you for dining with us Peter. So sorry to read that you were not satisfied with your meal and found your server less than gracious.
