A word from Brix Restaurant & Wine Bar
Brix Restaurant and Wine Bar was one of the first restaurants in the development of Vancouver’s historic Yaletown quarter as a destination for casual fine dining.

Opening in April 1999 in a turn-of-the-century heritage building on Homer Street it quickly became known for its innovative food, an extensive, well priced wine list, and its warm and inviting atmosphere amid the high-beamed ceilings and original exposed-brick walls.

A unique glass covered key hole courtyard is one of the city's top restaurant patios and is the only Yaletown outdoor dining space opened past 11pm.

An elegant dinner features a wide range of seafood, game, meat and poultry dishes and close proximity to the theatre district makes the light early dining menu a perfect pairing. Brix is also a favourite for the late-night crowd, too, offering great late-night dining into the wee hours.

Vancouver's top cocktail lounge, George, is only a flight of stairs away down on Hamilton Street.

    I came back to Brix after visiting during this past year's Dine Out Vancouver. Other places during Dine Out are quite rushed and it doesn't feel like you are there during a "normal" time. But Brix was not like this. The service both times was fantastic, and the food is amazing. It will be my new place to bring out of town guests - it is a great night out.

    My finance and I attended Brix restaurant minutes after being engaged, we had already booked a table for dinner post event. We walked into a beautiful intimate covered courtyard (we both commented on the style immediately). Our server was AMAZING, he was friendly and very knowledgeable on everything on the menu. He even picked up the subtle fact that we had just been engaged and made our evening extra special. The food was exceptional, I had the Veal with blueberry sauce and Indian Inspired Duck Risoto (which was the griled special) and my fiance had the Fraser Valley Chicken. Both meals were outstanding and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who asked!

    Early business dinner before a Canucks game. Staff very friendly, but professional at the same time. Server "Murry" (?young lady) was very alive to our time constraint, as was our busser. Food was great; lamb duo, taster salad, stuffed chicken breast, cod feature dish. Have been before and will definitely go again. Recommend the entrance courtyard (heated) if you have the time to relax and enjoy.

    Brix has never let me down - I have always had great service, great food and a great time when dining here. The menu is creative and fresh and a little bit unusual, without being too weird to choose from. My end of the table had the salmon, the steak and the lamb done two ways - all of our plates were empty when removed. We moved out to the courtyard for after-dinner drinks - no need to venture elsewhere. Another fantastic night - thanks Dave & Patrick!

    Seating matters. There are tables that are just not that nice due to draft or being on display in the front window. I thought they had a nice wine list and exceptionally decenty by the glass selection which is great if not all of your party is having seafood or redmeat. I thought the taste of Yaletown could have made a better accomodation for the choices in that the seafooders had to have two salads for starter and entree. Though the salmon and the arugula pesto were excellent.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/22/2008
    We visited Brix for the first time on Friday and couldn't fault the food, service, ambiance or restaurant as a whole really. You can chose main courses or small plates, we ordered 4 small plates, all of which were amazingly well presented and tasted wonderful, we shared a desert which was also outstanding and almost looked to good to eat! The service was professional, friendly and helpful - just right. My boyfriend's a pretty good chef so he's always really critical of anywhere we dine but even he couldn't fault a thing. We dined as a couple but fours and large groups we're catered for well too it seems. It's not a cheap venue but it's worth every penny, we'll certainly be back and will be recommending this place onwards.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/22/2008
    I was somewhat disappointed with my experience at Brix this time compared to my last time there a few years ago. The "small dishes" were most definitely "small" and not nearly as memorable as the last time. Most definitely has become a hip spot for the younger in-crowd who are there to drink and be seen. At least the night I was there. Too bad. I am not sure I would go back.

    Dined on 7/29/2008
    I had looked forward to celebrating a milestone birthday by going to Brix for the first time and sitting in the courtyard I had seen so many times from the street: it did not disappoint; well at least the restaurant didn't: mother nature was blowing a cool breeze down the long passage leading to the pseudo-outdoor courtyard that made us move inside. Once inside, I was not disappointed at all: the music selection was fantastic: ambient, downtempo and even some Beck—however you classify that— making for a classy but not stuffy feel. The decor was Yaletown chic with a twist. The food was pretty good and the chairs were very comfortable. Overall, it deserves another look someday.

    The ambiance on the patio was great and perfect for a catch-up dinner w friends. However, the bottle of white wine we ordered was served warm, not chilled and the meal we ordered (risotto) was underdone. Having said that, the restaurant was really good about not charging for the entrees after we complained.

    Special thank you for honouring our reservation. Concert went 1 hour late and we were prepared to kiss the table good-bye, but on arrival it was waiting for us. Food was good, plenty of variety for a late-night bite. Service was professional and pleasant. Small note: I wish I enjoyed the ahi salad visavis the canneloni pasta. It looked amazing! (My dish was somewhat mushy but tasty. Not a complaint, more an observation.) Will definitely return but for a real dinner as the ambiance and location make is a find, indeed. Cheers.
