  • "Beautiful restaurant nestled in quiet downtown Milford. Perfect setting. The wine selection was quite extensive but Lauren helped us navigate to a great bottle which matched perfectly with tasty appetizers and an outstanding entre. Wonderful meal in wonderful setting."

  • "Been to 20 brix times. If it s possible it s gets better everytime. Hunter and Clay have a staff that is always on their A game. In the kitchen Paul and crew made sure that the salmon dish was one we are still talking about how great it was days later. Always at the top of our list of places to dine out."

  • "We go here often and are never disappointed in the food and wine. Service varies from average to excellent, although always great follow-up from the manager. On the last visit we both had the salmon with beet/carrot purée and it was fantastic. Vanilla crème brulée for dessert was just a tiny bit too sugary, but still perfectly prepared and very delicious. 20 Brix is definitely one of our top restaurants in the Cincinnati area, and best in the Northeast; I would recommend it to anyone. Go ahead and order a bottle off their excellent wine list - they have wine doggie bags to take home what you can't finish!"

  • "Not sure why we've never been here but...we'll be back. Got a special deal on a prie fixe menu which led us to finally come. Got an outside table on an absolutely perfect evening. John took great care of us-walking us thru both menu and wine list. Portions were small but creative."

  • "My friend and I had a light supper after a shopping night. We enjoyed sitting outside because the weather was lovely. We were famished and we had to wait for our food for 40 (!) minutes. Thank goodness for the really good bread and flavored butter that accompanied our Prosecco. When we mentioned the long wait to our waitress she did not apologize, just stated that "everyone showed up at the same time." We should have appreciated an apology and being kept informed on what was going on. But we certainly had a lot of time and catch up and when the food (lobster roll and salmon) arrived they were really good, hopefully not just because we were relay hungry. But we had eaten there before and will certainly come again."

  • "Was at a tasting and the wine and food were superb. This last visit was not as good as the first visit very disappointing. The Beet Root Risotto was very dry and hard sent it back. Very small portions for the price paid. The wine selection was very good and the Monday night special is excellent for the wine."

  • "We were looking forward to trying 20 Brix for the first time. From the service to the food ~ it was all very disappointing except for the carrot cake desert. Not sure if it was the restaurant or our server, but they didn't go out of their way at all nor did they try to accommodate. Besides the food being mediocre, and VERY overpriced it took over an hour and a half to receive our dinner! Needless to say we will never be going back and we would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. In fact we have already told over a dozen people about our awful experience and have no problem telling a few dozen more! There are way too many other good restaurants to go have a nice dinner were they will actually appreciate your business & go above"

  • "We had dined at 20 Brix before, but sat outside for the first time--found my new favorite outdoor dining spot here. My scallops were delicious, but my husband had the special, a take on a southern crawfish boil, and it was so-so (and not much food for the $32.00 price). Loved our waiter, but at one point my husband had neither water nor alcohol left--ordered wine before dinner that came toward the end of our meal. Still, overall the place is worth another try: great atmosphere, great wine and beer lists, inventive food, personable service."

  • "These guys do it all. Fantastic seasonally changing food and a killer wine list. Service is terrific and they make you feel very special. It is one of the places where we take our out of town guests. I can unreservedly recommend to all."

  • "Soup salad and drinks were great, even the dessert Main meal lacked flavor. I had shrimp and grits, mostly corn. My husband had steak, not much flavor Might try again"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "My husband and I enjoyed another great dinner. We shared the Vineyard Pizza and an order of the Brussels Sprouts (i always have to have them). Then we each ordered the two specials -- the Pork Chops with Crawfish Goetta and I had the Tilefish which was amazing. Truly our favorite restaurant."

  • "We enjoyed the vegetable appetizers, the cauliflower and Brussel sprouts were really different, and interesting. The arugula salad was delicious and so very fresh. My husband had the fish special and he loved it. We will definitely go back. "

  • "Spent a lot of money for dinner and went away hungry even after eating dessert. If you are over 150 lbs, order 2 meals."

  • "The lamb meatballs appetizer was excellent and is not to be missed. But the burger? Eh... really quite greasy. It took a day for my stomach to clear up after that one. Server was friendly but clearly overworked with too many tables, but I'm not sure if this is common or just an abnormally busy evening."

  • "20 BRIX has been on our list of restaurants to try for a long time, but we wish we had skipped it as we couldn't have been more disappointed with the menu and food. The menu is VERY limited for a restaurant in this price range--salmon was the only fish offered and there were no chicken or pasta entree options (except a chicken sandwich). Every entree and sandwich includes too many ingredients/polarizing flavors to the extent that my husband ordered a hamburger (which he never does). At $25, my 3 scallops should have been spectacular but they weren't. I would pass on 20 BRIX--unless you just want to enjoy a nice bottle of wine. Ironically, their wine/beer menu covers 8+ pages while the entire food menu covers one. A bit out of balance?"

  • "While my husband and I often have lunch here we have been disappointed with the seating at dinner. This time we asked for a place in the bar section or in the front 2/3 of the room to avoid the back part toward the kitchen where it can get noisy. As we were celebrating our anniversary we wanted a more private spot than the patio although we often sit on the patio for lunch. We had a wonderful time; the food was very good. My husband had steak which he really liked, I had scallops and thought the cabbage a bit too sweet for the sweetness of the scallops but the dish was still very, very good. We split a kale salad which is one of our favorites. A nice glass of wine and a lovely, light cake and coffee to finish off our evening."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The service was excellent. The food was subpar for the price you pay. Salads were good, main course (both meals) too salty to eat. Desert was average. Wine, and selection of, fantastic."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "While my food was good, my partner is a regular guy & everything on the menu had lots of sauces he wasn't familiar with or was topped with spinach & the like. We enjoyed the crabcake appetizer, but they didn't even have any "regular guy" beers. The beers were mostly craft beers & they had only 2 others - Hudy & Pabst, I think; no Budweiser, Miller Lite, etc. While I'm more experimental with my food choices, and like just about everything, he prefers a simple pork chop or a steak with a baked potato, for example. He did order the strip steak, but I tasted it & it was chewy & flavorless; we cook better steaks on the grill that we buy from Kroger."

  • "A pre-Mother's day dinner for the two of us, I had the Salmon & my wife had the Scallops. We also had a cauliflower app that was tasty. we shared a bottle of 38$ wine & had a chocolate powderless dessert. Needless to say we left compltetely stuffed! A really nice neighborhood gem. Our reservations was for 8:30 on sat eve & we walked right in & were seated. Staff was great. our smaller sized 2 person booth was a tittle small at the feet but ok overall. We ended up spending about $115"

  • "20 Brix has definitely matured since our first visit shortly after the restaurant opened. Looking back, it was a wine bar with so so food. Now the experience is fully visualized with top tier entrees, amazing service (Thanks, Jeffrey!!!), and the ever present wine selection with which the servers are well acquainted. It was a great evening and we will be retuning for our next night out and about. Thanks again, 20 Brix!"

  • "AS mentioned in our title. This was my wife and I's first time to this restaurant and found it to be a very nice. The ambience was excellent for a quiet and relaxed dinner. The staff as very attentive and helpful in discussing wine and seasonal dinned options. We would highly recommend this restaurant to both friends and family to try."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "When dining at 20 Brix, I did not find that it lived up to its reputation. When dining our server spent more time going over the wine list than the menu, and then never took our drink orders. Additionally our server never came by to check on us. Out of the 4 meals, only 1 was received well. The two different sandwiches that were ordered were not good at all. The chicken sandwich was unwieldy with a drumstick stuck on top of the sandwich which just added to its greasiness, and eventually along with the burger had to be eaten with a knife and fork. If you are looking for a place to have wine and maybe a bite to eat, I'm sure this place would be fantastic. However if you want a nice meal, I would look someplace else."
