I live in the suburbs and often drive to the sleek new happening places in Boston where the architecture upstages the food: not here! This restaurant reminds me of years ago when real people made the food they loved and shared it with the neighborhood. No star chef, or architect, but impeccable service, warm inviting atmosphere and delicious food. I'm very happy to have found this gem and will dine there often.

When our daughter told me about the Cold Cherry soup - I was hooked. We were greeted warmly, and welcomed with familial attention. Once seated, the Owner came over to announce the specialties (thank goodness the Cold Cherry soup was available). Very personable, very cozy. The service was impeccable - not rushed at all - yet not left feeling like we were ignored. And the FOOD - oh my, the special lamb with figs was divine, the appetizers were fabulous and the recommended wine was appropriate. Thank you for welcoming us into your home! If our daughter stays in Brighton - we will be back!

Jasmine Bistro has incredibly flavorful food and excellent service. You'll feel that you are being served home-cooked food in someone's quaint living room. I'm fairly certain that the family who runs the restaurant have photographic memories-if you go there once, they'll always remember you. An awesome place to go, either on a romantic date or for an unusual meal out with some friends. One of my favorite places in the Brookline/Brighton area.

The food was great, the menu varied, and the waiter very very pleasant. This is a really small restaurant run by Hungarian Immigrants. The son is the waiter and he was very nice. The atmosphere was nothing royal but it was cozy enough to make up for it.
