    Excellent meal at Brexi. Off season brings a quieter dining room and very attentive service. Fish offerings were outstanding as always. The meat eaters have even more to choose from.

    Great, interesting food with a fun ambiance. Their daily specials (we were there for Wednesday Sole Meuniere) cannot be beat. Service was good although the waiter kept mistaking our sparkling water in our glasses for tap water and inadvertently filled our glasses with the wrong liquid. It was fine the first time - understandable mistake; slightly annoying the second time. No matter - we dined in ease and enjoyed our meals and will definitely return.

    The food was good BUT it wasn't worth what you are charged. I realize it is Aspen so a plate of cat food would cost an arm and a leg. The steak and fries was not worth $42. The steak was good, not great. The fries had no taste. The escargot was good and original though. Nice atmosphere until the 20 somethings show up and get loud and ruin the experience.

    Brexi has excellent food in a warm atmosphere. The staff is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We really enjoyed our evening there with a group of clients. This is one of our "go to" spots in Aspen when we are entertaining clients. You can talk and be heard (which is not the case in all restaurants today!).

    My husband and I went here just for a "nice dinner". Everything was delicious. Unfortunately they didn't have a sommelier and I didn't feel their wine buyer was very knowledgeable, which doesn't make much sense, but whatever. We started off with oysters which were spectacular, followed by frogs legs (a first). I had scallops and my husband had the filet. All this delicious was followed by sticky toffee pudding, which while not French, is my favorite dessert. Our waiter was fantastic!

    Brexi has character. It's elegant yet not too over-the-top. The food is consistently good. Dining outside can be quite pleasant although it's not a large outside dining area. The staff are very attentive and friendly and the wine selection is quite good both for French and domestic wines.

    We had a family dinner with our boys - 13 & 15. We tried a few appetizers - which were amazing. We really enjoyed trying the frog legs! Then dinner came and we each completely enjoyed our meals - Salmon, Steak & Lobster. Of course we couldn't skip dessert - our 13 year old is so happy that he discovered creme brulee. We will come back to Brexi the next time we're in Aspen and encourage anyone and everyone to go here. Amazing food and the wine selection was quite nice as well. The service is excellent.

    Love the ambiance of this restaurant. The steaks were very expensive and only marginal, I had bouillabaisse made with trout and was sorry I ordered it. The chicken was the best dinner out of the four.

    We went to Brexi at the end of the ski season.. the food was amazing, the service was prompt, polite and not over-bearing. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the bone-in strip... both outstanding. We also had a cheese tray and it was like heaven. Great restaurant.. glad we stepped out of the box for ourselves.

    Dined on 3/22/2014
    This was not a great experience -- too bad, since we used to like Brexi quite a bit. Food quality and service were not as good as prior visits. Our impression was that the bouillabaisse included lower-quality shellfish, especially the crab legs and lobster. At $37, we expected more. Service was friendly but slow -- didn't get our wine until almost done with the entrees. Price was much too high for the quality and we'll probably not return anytime soon.

    Nicely decorated, though the space is a little disjointed (our table was next to the bar). Some entrees better than others (the haddock was just so-so), the brussel sprouts were good, can't recommend the Yukon potato. The staff were very good/nice.

    I rarely book French restaurants for my group that includes four men, but made an exception once I looked at the menu online. We all enjoyed a delicious dinner there. The Caesar salad was one of the best ever - crisp romaine with lots of fresh Parmesan cheese. Also recommend the perfectly cooked filet and roasted chicken. A very pleasant evening.

  • OK, but not great
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 2/26/2014
    Had dinner with my daughter her after skiing. The restaurant is beautiful. The light fixtures are very cool. The service was not so hot. Our waiter evidently did not bother writing down our order and forgot about a side dish that was ordered. It is great if a waiter can remember everything that is ordered, but I prefer to have him write it down rather than forget something. The food was ok. I had a Caesar Salad which seemed to be missing garlic--it was very bland. I got the beef bourguignon. It was done with short ribs. The ribs are a little too fatty for that preparation I think. The broth was OK, but not great.

    Six of us had dinner and other than the two who ordered the Burgers, the comments were not positive. Steak was covered in sauce to hide a very below average filet. Very disappointed. Wine buyer was awesome as was the server. Perhaps we hit it on a bad night but 4 of the 6 said it was below average.

    In making this' reservation, we informed the person that we were celebrating a birthday. When we arrived we reminded the hostess of the birthday. Thet did nothing to celebrate the birthday. When asked why, they said if we had ordered a dessert they would have put a candle in it. They apologized for their lack of communication, and would discuss it with the staff. That did not help in our celebration. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

    Brexi is a busy jumping place to be in Aspen. Good location, close to the St. Regis. I was looking forward to dining there. The overall experience was good but we were a little disappointed in the food. The caesar salad was delicious and a good size portion. The stripped bass presentation was beautiful although it was a little bland. The bone in strip was cooked perfectly but a little tough. Great service so we will give it another try.

    Gods was good my chicken came out cold which was scary. And a little pink which was not edible. Waitress seemed to be too busy to stop by our table and check in. Also they were busy and they rushed us with entree being served before appetizer was finished. They also must of wanted our table to leave since the bill was put on table before asking if we wanted dessert.

    While Brexi has great service and ambience, we were surprised by the lack of actual French fare. I had lobster carbonara, which was disappointingly bland. The only truly lauded item we were served was the beef tartare. Would only recommend to those seeking a fun aspen crowd.
