    Heard great things about this restaurant and only now got to try it after 6 summers in Gig Harbor. Food and service were outstanding. I had the grilled romaine salad and the lamb meatballs. I loved them both. Others in our group had the beef bourguignon and the mussels. Shared a crunchy cheese cake (yes crunchy) for dessert. We were all very pleased. A delightful evening.

    This restaurant is by far a 12 out of 10 star restaurant. From the welcome when you arrive to the excellent service and leaving with a smile from the front staff. The food is the Best i and my husband have eaten anywhere, and we dine out quite a bit all over the world. It was a total find for us in the cute town of Gig Harbor. It is by far our favorite place to dine for a Romantic Dinner out.

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    I took my wife here for our 19th anniversary and we had a great time. I was able to get a great bottle of champagne waiting at our table when we arrived. Although I had authorized up to $100 on the bottle, they gave me a $48 bottle that was outstanding. Then we finished with a great bottle of Rhone style red that was a local Washington product. Almost all of their selections are Washington and the Pacific Northwest wines. The food was delicious as well. My wife's only complaint was the Pear and Gorgonzola Ravioli with a Lemon Cream sauce was too rich for her to finish it. I had Beef Bougriane very rich in flavor and delicious to the taste. The food was not overly complex, but very well executed. The service was terrific as well.

    Had dinner there for a birthday on Wednesday 7/30/2014. Listed on there wine menu it stated that Wednesday was half off bottles of wine and this was stated on each page of the wine and dinner menu. When asked why we did not get the discount the server stated that that page was not on the discount even though it was clearly labeled as such. Asked to speak to manager who informed me that the owner says that is her policy and he had not authority to change the ticket. He did not agree with it but said he had no choice that it was the owners decision. I will not be going back nor will I recommend this restaurant since the owner has put the servers and manager in such a hard spot.

    My family has been dining at Brix 25 since we moved here 2 years ago. Having lived in LA and Chicago most of my life I am accustomed to having many gourmet dining possibilities. So who would have guessed that the sleepy little town of Gig Harbor would have a truly unique and phenomenal restaurant. There are only 2 or 3 high end restaurants in GH and Brix is my favorite. The menu is creative and changes regularly. Insider tip: try ANY of the soup starters. The other night we had the chowder served over a bed of crab meat and it was the BEST soup I've ever had. All in all Brix is a wonderful restaurant and will satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.

    Entrees were entrees were only "so, so". More like a casserole than a fine dinner. Risotto was definitely not risotto albeit prepared with Arborio rice. It was boiled as opposed to a slow simmer with chicken broth. Osso Bucco was more like a great beef stew. Incredible salad at the start and the world's best tiramisu at the end.

    Brix25 never disappoints - it's our 'go to' restaurant for special occasions and celebrations. The food is thoughtfully prepared and there are many variations on classics - for example, their roasted romaine is a delightful variation on the classic Caesar salad. The wine list is varied, and there are wines in every price range. The staff is helpful, from making suggestions to answering questions about the menu. We've dined at Brix many times and would recommend them without reservation.

    I will be brief: Took over two hours to eat once seated at the table. Service slow and sometimes non existent. After being seated it took 15 minutes to get a menu. Food was not very good, Pork bellies, were so salty, they were almost un edible. Food was served luke warm. Took well over two hours to eat, in a noisy atmosphere. Oso Bucho, was almost cold and did not have a marrow fork. Sweet and Sour soup, was served by a busboy who poured some brownish liquid over three very small mushrooms (which was suppose to be one Portobello, according to the waitress. The soup was bad at best. Seared scallops were not, and the risotto that was suppose to be in the dish was something other than risotto. NEVER and I mean never going back. Cost: 200.00

We had the scallops that were not on the menu that night. Very good. Go to this place, but dont tell everybody about it or it will be too tough to get a reservation next time.

    This is our go-to place in Gig Harbor, whether it be Happy Hour in the bar or dinner with the family. Katie and her staff offer the best in dining experience. The food offerings are worthy of the 5 stars and easily compare or exceed what one would find in larger market offerings. Service is always prompt and pleasant. New menu offerings continue to delight and the wine and bar choices are extensive and offer something for the novice as well as the oenophile. If you haven't visited Brix 25 you are missing out! Also try their place for breakfast and lunch in a more casual atmosphere at Netshed 9

    I had spent hrs looking through many reviews in seattle before I decided, why not look here in gig harbor. So happy I did! Not only did Brix 25 have better reviews than some, but it lived up to them. It is a sweet, small restaurant, the lighting is low, the dining area is clean and peaceful music plays lowly in the background. We were well greeted and taken care of from start to finish. The food blew us away! The lamb was slightly difficult to cut, it is served in a bowl like dish, but tender and flavorful. The beef bourguignon was a blast of flavor, the beef melted in your mouth. And if you go I highly recommend the seasonal creme brulee, currently orange and rosemary, it was so floral and delicate, a perfect ending to a lovely meal!

    We were not greeted immediately when we walked through the door, but the staff made up for that in attentiveness later. The food was very good, prices were reasonable and we will be back. My only real complaint is that it gets noisy - the restaurant could use some sound-absorbing materials to provide a quieter more romantic setting.

    I have been to Brix 25 on a few occasions. Quite simply this is the best restaurant I have ever eaten at!! The staff is wonderful, energetic and you can tell they enjoy what they are doing. The food is exquisite!!! I have tried some things on their menu that I would normally not have and they were hands down delectable! My wife has specific dietary needs, they owner himself and his head chef both came to our table to ensure that her needs were met. I cannot praise this place enough. By far, better than any place in Seattle.

    My husband and i had business in Gig Harbor and made reservations at Brix 25. It was absolutely wonderful. The food, The service everything about it. We arrived early and it was no problem..The owner was kind enough to speak with us to see how everything was going. (that is refreshing to see). We live in the Browns Point area so it is a bit of a trip, but well worth it. We had told our friends that this is going to be a more frequent stop for us, even thou we are over the pond...Thank you so much everyone at Brix 25.
