    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    Very disappointed in the food especially paying high prices. For $35 the steak should have been awesome but it was only OK. Had the duck which was also very expensive and it was tough and very hard to cut. For prices of $30+ for a dinner, the food should have been better. Very average experience and will not return. There was nothing special about this restaurant. So many more restaurants with prices like this that have exceptional food. Our waitress was excellent; very enthusiastic about the menu offerings and food. Unfortunately it did not match the experience.

    I usually love Brix but I was very disappointed in my most recent experience. Our waiter was rude, passive aggressive & pushy from the onset even though we had reservations & it wasn't crowded. At the end of our meal he made a strange comment about seeing 2 people in love and that in the future if we planned to take 3 hours for dinner we should let the hostess bc they like to turn tables after 1.5 hrs. It was awkward & inappropriate; he could have handled the situation with more diplomacy if Brix does limit guests' time. Our bill was $180 for 2 people so we were not wasting time over water. I thought Brix promoted an atmosphere of enjoyment centered on good food & good wine, not turning tables. I don't feel that way any longer.

    We always love Brix and came for a birthday dinner. The food and the service were excellent. Didn't give it a 5 star this time because I didn't love the caesar salad. I had the fried oyster appetizer for my meal and it was really perfect. Everyone else got the New York and they all enjoyed it very much. Always love the beet salad. Should have stuck with that. Start to finish was really wonderful!!!

    We arrived a bit late for our 9pm reservation but were still greeted warmly by the waitstaff, who took care of us exceedingly well. Great southwestern hospitality, excellent food, and yummy wine. Also an interesting venue featuring a local artist whom the barstaff provided us more information on when we inquired. Overall, a great evening at the end of a long drive from Santa Fe.

    Went here on a Trip Advisor recommendation and it lived up to expectations. It has a relaxed, cosy atmosphere but is obviously serious about food and the service was incredibly enthusiastic, even by American standards. A welcome change from the standard diners and restaurants that we had experienced on our holiday to date. The first course of roasted carrots and beetroot was disappointing - the sweetness did not come through at all. However, the mains and puddings were excellent. My teenage sons were very happy with their steaks, and I had the fish special of the day, which was superb. An excellent neighbourhood restaurant and I would thoroughly recommend it.

    What a gem-- the moment we walked in, we felt comfortable with the friendly greeting and cozy/upscale decor. David, our waiter, was amazingly attentive despite being very busy on this Sunday night. He kept our water glasses filled, and even took time to tell me how he makes a particular cocktail I loved- a strawberry basil limonata, with Vodka, simple syrup, St. Germaine, soda, and muddled strawberries/basil. First we shared 3 small plates-- a duck cassoulet, roasted cauliflower with raisins, and roasted brussels sprouts-- all excellent. Then we shared mushroom raviolis that were the tenderest ever-- although a small portion, it was totally worth it. Wine list is interesting and reasonable. We highly recommend this restaurant.

    I was in town for a show and wanted to eat before going. I saw that Brix had a charcuterie board and small plates and had good reviews. I made reservations through OpenTable, but somehow my reservation did not take. However, they sat me at the bar immediately. The bartender took me under his wing and explained the excellent wine list, menu and specials after setting me a place at the bar. I had the charcuterie plate and cornbread fried oysters matched with a sauvignon blanc from my hometown - Sutcliffe. The place was packed but service was excellent and the food arrived quickly. I really enjoyed the attention of the staff and the bartender. My meal was very pleasant.

    Brix was a modest disappointment. The restaurant is difficulty to locate because of its off-the-street location; more like an alley than a street front. The pumpkin soup was excellent as was the mushroom ravioli. However the cavatelli was so spicy as to overwhelm the other flavors; a most disappointing dish. The falafel provided as a side dish was also disappointing.

    Just went a few days ago with family and had a great time. A, nice quiet place with great ambiance (A darkened room with wood floors and some soft music; my favorite type of restaurant.) The service was great and friendly and the food excellent. The only issue we found was that the food took too long to leave the kitchen! The soup and steaks were cool by the time they arrived at the table, and with line of sight to the kitchen, I could see the steaks being handed out well before they were delivered. This was of course frustrating as it seemed like an easy thing thing fix, but the food was still very good.

    Had a chance to visit Brix the other night for the first time, and it won't be my last. My lady and I sat at the bar for dinner and were served by Esteban, who was as witty and engaging as he was helpful in fielding our many questions about the menu and wine options. The mushroom ravioli and pork belly were both fantastic. Loved it all, and will be back.

    Because this was the first night of a new seasonal menu, the service was relatively slow through no fault of our waiter. The duck and spinach I had was very tough, yes even the spinach. I did borrow some of my date's pork dish, which was fairly good. The wine we ordered, with the assistance of our server, was great. This was our first visit to Brix and we were disappointed.

    Regrettably, this was a mixed experience. Fabulous "Fall/Autumn Risotto"....wonderful salads. Dried out ox-tail tart, with a heavy doughy crust. Carmelized cauliflower tasted good, but it wasn't carmelized. More like braised.... Service was great, and the ambiance remains very enjoyable. We were there the first night of the new fall menu, maybe that is the reason the food was not up to the normal standard. Disappointing as usually Brix does a great job.

    Brix is one of my favorite Flagstaff restaurants! The food is always great and the wait staff friendly and helpful. I recommend it whenever I get a chance! After my past visit, I received a call from the manager because he thought he overheard a conversation on our way out that indicated that we were unhappy with our dinner (we were not). I was VERY impressed that he would take the time to call and see if he could rectify the situation! Will happily return the next time I am in town!

    Finally got into Brix Restaurant in Flagstaff! From our appetizers, to our delicious entrees, to our decadent desserts, this restaurant was incredible. Our server, Michael, was knowledgeable about all the menu items, and steered us in the right direction for all our choices. We took our teenaged boys with us, and they enjoyed their steak frites meal. We all tried a different dessert and shared them. Our cocktails, charcuterie tray, and bread with the Hawaiian salt, were delicious! We enjoyed the evening, ambiance, staff, and location. We will go back every time we are in town! We LOVED it!

    Very cute neighborhood restaurant. Love supporting local establishments. Service was excellent. Our appetizer was excellent assortment of fabulous cheeses. Our steaks lacked flavor. Cauliflower choice just ok. Loved menu; however, many items on menu unavailable and we had early reservation? Sadly think we will be choosing different restaurant when visiting Flagstaff next time.

    The reservation went without a problem. They were waiting for us and immediately directed us to our seat. The waitress was friendly and on it. I ordered the salmon and it was delicious. Nothing else to say about it. She ordered the steak frites. The steak was not great. Very stringy and hard to chew. The dessert, which I got was flourless chocolate cake was juicy and sweet. Almost devoured it. Overall it was great but if the steak was good then it would have been amazing.

    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.

    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.

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.
