The raw oysters were very good but the fried oysters were disappointing. Not well seasoned and somewhat soggy (due to sauce) , I would not recommend. My friend got the sword fish which was hammered and I got the squid ink pasta - shrimp was overcooked. For a seafood place that is a shame that they overcooked all their cooked seafood. The service was fine, our server definitely did not go any extra mile - not even an inch. When my friend mentioned the overcooked swordfish - I would expect her to offer to get another, but nope. Instead she agreed to bring a lemon or a lemon sauce. She never asked us for drink refills or asked how the meal was in general. Overall this is not the place to impress. I would say go for the raw bar get a drink and go somewhere else for dinner.

Waiter was great. We showed up 12 minutes prior to the end of happy hour (which we weren’t aware was available) and our waiter did us a favor letting us know we still had time to get orders in under happy hour pricing.

We went for my wife’s birthday (which also happens to be NYE). She had raw oysters and me peel and eat shrimp to start. Both were excellent. For dinner she had catfish and me ribeye but the star of the show was the mashed potatoes - simply outstanding, best I’ve ever had!

This is worth a try if you must eat in the Mosaic District, want seafood, and are willing to pay $24/main dish. Our trout was fresh and tasty, but the swordfish was overcooked. The roasted brussel sprouts were good, but you need to request them without the cheese topping. The biscuits are disappointing.

This is a solid option when visiting the Mosaic district. We visited on a Friday night at 7pm after a movie. Most, but not all, tables were full and the bar was empty. As a result, the noise levels were not bad; I could see this being a very loud place if it were full and people were waiting for tables (high ceilings, cement floor, no sound-absorbing tiles). Our waiter was juggling quite a few tables, but still did a good job of keeping things moving. Oysters were excellent! We had the swordfish entree and a seared tuna salad. Both were good, but the clam/shrimp pasta and scallop dishes that the table next to us got looked better! Wine list is somewhat limited, although there is a reasonable range of wines available. Would definitely return.

Brine remains one of the few restaurants in our area with no non-alcoholic beers. This is a shame because nothing goes as good with raw seafood as beer. And there are some excellent non-alcoholic beers being produced. Food delivery was slow, and the restaurant was less than half full. We can only assume that everything we ate was freshly made. It certainly tasted that way. Our food was excellent when it finally came. The waiter was attentive and the food is consistently good, so this is one of our favorite places in Mosaic.

We arrived at 11:30 when the restaurant opened for Brunch. In fact, we were about 5 minutes early and they were kind enough to let us in out of the cold. However, it seems that their start time is a little bit of a slow roll as butter for the rolls was still refrigerated and required heating under a lamp before we could have it at the table.

The oysters were excellent (we had 2 dozen for the four of us) and the chopped horseradish was a nice change of pace from the normal minced or creamed style often served with oysters. Also, their hot sauce was excellent.

Waiters were attentive if perhaps a little overextended in terms of work.

My wife's shrimp and grits while tasty were not warm and I suspect that it was either made ahead of time and reheated or had been placed into the bowl too early while the other food was cooking.

The avocado toast was presented well, however, it had been toasted (probably on an open fire grill) a little long and was a little overdone. It was very difficult to cut the toast with the butter knife provided. I'd recommend either lest toasting or a steak knife to cut with.

The salmon eggs benedict had fresh spinach on it which is a nice touch and the tomatoes were fair and to be expected this time of year. The issue is with the muffin which was barely toasted which meant there was no strong underlying structure for the dish and tasted mealy. The muffin could have benefited from the person that cooked the avocado toast taking a swing at it.

The pumpkin cheesecake was fantastic with a nutmeg flavored crust.

I'd go back for more oysters but would probably shy away from the brunch items and stick to items they cook regularly throughout the week on a more regular basis.

Went to Brine for a small family dinner; all of us are foodie/cooks. Loved the industrial farmhouse decor, the local sourcing, and fresh seafood. Bonus points for the light, warm dinner rolls which are terrific. The bar is good on execution, but really slow. All the dishes are good, some very good, but the catfish with butternut squash was a low point; too much cornmeal breading and way too much squash on the plate. Recommend for a nice dinner.

We went during the middle of a slow period between lunch and dinner. Kiernan was the only server at the time but was attentive and kind. The food came out quickly. The oyster chowder was really delicious! Nice gem of a restaurant located in the heart of a nice little area.

If I could have done 4 1/2 stars, that would have been more appropriate. Service started off slow, and it was odd that three different people tended to us before settling on one. There was also the time that the young lady whose job was to refill the water glass, literally leaned across the table over my wife’s food to grab the water glass. I didn’t say anything at the time, but I could tell by the look on her face that she was able to read the look on my face, because she put the glass down on the side closer to her - she could have walked around my wife to put it back where she picked it up from, but regardless. Other than that, overall, it was really good. Totally enjoyed the oysters (appetizers), also, the side Brussels sprouts was reeeaaally good.

We were one of the only indoor tables. Took a while to realize why we were getting ignored repeatedly - there were a ton of tables outdoors. I mean we were sitting waiting, over an over, for minutes and minutes for the next step (greetings, drink orders, apps, dinner, check) . We had to waive at the guys when they were at the register ringing up other people.
Food was pretty cool but for the price, portions could be larger and more full featured.

Happy Hour Oysters @ $1.25 each are good.

Everything else was just okay and we ordered just about everything on the menu. Menu needs a reset with some more inspiring options or this will be our last visit.

Bottles of wine are overpriced as well. Beers were filled 8/10ths of the glass.

I definitely recommend Brine at Mosaic! In fact, when my family comes to visit, that is where I will be taking them. The service was friendly and fast, and the food was exceptional. My youngest son tried swordfish for the first time and loved it. My husband ordered the squid ink linguine (for the first time here in the US) and said that it was every bit as good as the squid dishes he loved in Sicily. My scallops were cooked to perfection and they were very good at accommodating my dairy-free preference. Our oldest son had a burger that was devoured much faster than he should have and declared it extremely good. I also tried the oysters. They were good and I appreciated that you could order them one at a time. If you are going to try oysters for the first time, it is good to do so at a place that has 117 years of history with the mollusks.

Our tuna tartare was extraordinarily delicious. Lovely flavors and a mix of textures. The crostini were divine! So yummy, dessert was not necessary. Our waiter was awful. Inane. Asked if we'd decided what we wanted to order 15 minutes AFTER we'd given him our orders. And on it went like that. Everything that came out of his mouth was surprisingly senseless. He was going to pour more wine. I told him the bottle was empty. He poured (nothing) anyhow. He had no business being a waiter.

Overpriced, underwhelming. I received a gift card to Brine, that's why we went. We had sticker shock at the end of the night. The table-clearing verges on obsessive -- it felt as though someone was always coming by taking something off the table. Our waiter was good, but our it took 12 minutes to get our initial drinks: an Aperol Spritz and a draught beer to our table. My $13 ceviche was served without crackers; mostly shrimp and pineapple and no fish or scallops or calamari. I won't be back.
