    We always enjoy a special experience at Brix. We go often and appreciate the seasonal change in menu with items sourced from Arizona. This shows their fresh interest in preparing a special dish each time. The chef does a beautiful job of preparing to our request and presenting the dishes with interesting tastes that compliment the dish. We brought friends from Portland (high standards for salmon) and said Brix salmon was wonderful. The staff is warm and knowledgeable.

    Our server, Kylie, was just so helpful and generally awesome!! We were there for 2 special occasions, and she and the bartender (?) were very accommodating of our kids and a very special birthday celebration/anniversary. It was a big deal for us to go out like that-we never do that, for lots of reasons, but it was really worth it!

    This was our last dinner on a 35 day road trip and finished off our food memories in great style. The menu was creative. They offer small plates which is a major plus for smaller appetites. The wine list is eclectic and interesting. The food was delicious. We will return.

    Great food and wine at reasonable prices, we loved it! The setting is rather funky but one loses sight of the old building after viewing the art hung on the walls and the thoughtful décor. The service is attentive and skilled. Each of us had a different meal and we all agreed on the excellence of the ingredients and preparation.

    Booked our reservation through OpenTable and were seated promptly upon our arrival. The first table we were offered was actually switched for us without any problem to one with less traffic. Our waiter was attentive and friendly, and the food was first rate. The ambiance is cozy, and conducive to food and wine appreciation as well as conversation. Staff was very responsive to all our requests, and they were knowledgeable about the local cuisine and wine pairings. We were very happy with our decision to try Brix, and we will be back.

    It was our 3 year anniversary and a Friday night to boot. We were quickly shown to our table (thank you OpenTable) and greeted by Sarah. She went over the seasonal selections and answered our questions from the menu like a seasoned pro. Very knowledgeable on the foods' preparation and the local farms it came from. The food was exceptional. Cooked to order and plated with modern style. I highly recommend dining here if you find yourself in need of a nice dinner in Flagstaff.

    Cheese awesome. . Blue cheese awesome. Spreadable Bette than butter. Buttery lobster. Salmon was cooked at right temper. Not over cooked. Shares with a lentil pea, el deltne . Wine, good selection. Pinot noir yummy, sharp, better wish whit fish like mackerel oil blend or tuna not house speak cal sea bass. They ran out of wine. Gave free glass of 3 star Pinot Noir. Bette taste, after taste linger. Stay away from Rivera. Too heavy. Not lite n berry note.

    Our party of two dined on the patio at Brix on a slightly cool Flagstaff evening. The wine list is very unusual and quite unique. The menu is very fit for true foodies with locally grown organic produce, locally sourced meats, and breads from the local bakery in town. The service is friendly and impeccable. We were not rushed but encouraged to take our time and enjoy each flavorful course. We would recommend a reservation and requesting to sit on the patio weather permitting. It is quiet and romantic. Truly the best dining experience we have had in Flagstaff. We cannot wait to go back!

    It is not every night you drive 2 hours to a notable restaurant where you were limited in choice to either a 6 or 8 pm reservation. You've asked for a quiet table, but of course a restaurant does not have to honor an OpenTable request. So what do you get - a seat at the bar in the middle of a loud well lubricated wedding party. Then your 3 course dinner gets compressed into 2 courses, without being asked. What am I missing - VISITORS NOT WELCOMED!!!

    Brix is an unexpected pleasure amidst a world of Dennys and McDonalds around Flagstaff. Not only is the food locally sourced (for the most part) and the wine list curated with intelligence and taste, but it is all absolutely fabulous. We had a cheese and salume plate replete with homemade lavash, fruits, olives and pickles, then a small plate of cauliflower and the most delicate homemade agnolotti. The service and wine were at the same high level as the food. This place could be a hit in "hip" NYC, let alone Flagstaff.

    You won't find the waiters in starched white shirts, but they are friendly and knowledgeable. I would rate my steak as a 7 out of 10. Pasta Bolognese bland. Overall a nice restaurant, but not like a 4 or 5 star in the big city. Good though for Flagstaff. Nice change of pace to find pretty good food and a nice atmosphere up here in Flag.

    My wife's dinner was so so. The duck she ordered was somewhat greasy tasting. My fish dish, however, was very good. The wine was very good and the service very good. It was a special occasion, our 50th anniversary, so we wanted to splurge a little. My wife's disappointment in her dish dampened that somewhat. Yes, we could have said something, but decided it wasn't worth the fuss. Doubt if we will return considering the prices.

    We visited Brix based on reviews and we were not disappointed. We sat outside, though the inside rooms were also attractive. The food was uniformly excellent; carefully prepared with a nice presentation. Where possible, they used local sources. The people working in the restaurant all seemed to be very knowledgeable about what they served. We will definitely go again next time we are in Flagstaff.
