    We were in Gig Harbor for one night of a four day road trip. This was a great find and within walking distance of the Maritime Inn (another great find). I love being seated and then greeted with a glass of champagne. The atmosphere was intimate, the service was perfect, and the food was excellent. I had the lamb shanks and my daughter had the Beef Bourgignon and we thought neither could be any better. Thank you!

    Rarely do I have a dining experience that is solid from start to finish. Brix 25 managed to be pretty stellar from the exchange with the hostess to the final interaction with our waitress. The good was so good that my wife nearly asked me to drive back to Brix from Tacoma at 11 pm because we left our doggy bag at our table. Need I say more?

    Dined on 10/7/2014
    Having just moved to Gig Harbor from Seattle, my wife and I were searching for an appropriately fine restaurant to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. Our new next-door neighbor suggested this one. By chance, our anniversary this year fell on a day (Tuesday) when the restaurant offers a prix fixe menu (at $25). We took advantage of this offer and were most impressed. We had a lovely three-course meal, excellent gourmet cooking (but not pretentiously so), amongst intimate, music-free surroundings, only occasionally too noisy (for us). We definitely plan to return soon to sample their regular menu, if the evening we choose does not again fall on a Tuesday (when we would again be tempted by the wonderful special prix fixe menu).

    We went to Brix for a celebration dinner. Had a wonderful, relaxed meal, with delicious food. My only concern was that our entrees were not hot. We were dining with a group, so hated to send them back to the kitchen. The food was really good, just not hot enough, temperature-wise, for my taste.

  • A bit disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/19/2014
    We had a gift certificate to this restaurant, so I really can't complain. However, we probably would never go back. Portions were small and the potatoes on each dish were really nothing to write home about. Fingerling potatoes were bland and the garlic mashed potatoes with the beef dish were virtually non existent. DO NOT ORDER THE COSMO! Worst $10 drink ever. I will say the restaurant was full by the time we left.

    We were a party of 5 celebrating my son's 25th birthday. Had not been to Brix for a long, long time. Compared to other restaurants that we use for such occasions, Brix was good on food flavor & variety of entrees but a disappointment in the ambience category. No view (which we knew, of course), no intimate friendly feeling, lots of noise that made a table-round conversation hard so not much to do other than eat.

The service/staff is wonderful, always cheerful and wanting to please. I only wish i could give it 10 Stars instead of just 5..Well worth the drive if you live on the across the Narrows Bridge...

    The service is like watching a dance. Amazing! Our dinners both had remarkable nouances of flavor. My salmon was served very under done but they did fix it as soon as they caught my signal. That is the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars.

    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.

    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
