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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I had supper at Brix for the first time last Saturday and it was a delight. The food was beyond delicious. I had the Cornish Game Hen and I relished every bite. It was a very generously-sized bird and cooked to perfection with lima beans, kale, and potatoes as a truly unique base and the sauce was neither overpowering nor overwhelming. My wife had the sablefish gnocchi. Separately they would have been spectacular, but together they made for a dish that was soft, warm, and velvety. She loved every bite. And I loved every bite she shared. We had decided against dessert because the food was so incredible, but our most excellent server furnished us with panna cotta on the house. It was so warmly appreciated and completely kind."

  • "This restaurant looks inviting. The room and the covered courtyard have a warm, welcoming feel to them. Definitely comfortable. The service was professional: knowledgeable, never overbearing but there when you needed it. The food looked and tasted excellent. BUT portions were too small to satisfy even smaller diners with smaller appetites, particularly when you factor in the prices charged for those portions. You must order an appetizer and dessert and eat a lot of bread (all of which were very good) in order to walk away full. It makes for an expensive evening, but one with good food in pleasant surroundings."

  • "I love the atmosphere - the feeling of being outdoors. The service was well timed. I had the halibut and it was done perfectly. My husband very much enjoyed his Cornish game hen. The bread was scrumptious and I could easily have filled on that alone. We shared the beet salad, as we usually do, and it was no problem for them to put it on 2 separate plates. The salad was not exactly what we expected, but it was a very pleasant surprise and it showed that thought and effort went into making it a unique dish to Brix. We had the peanut butter cheesecake, which tasted too salty and we debated whether it was supposed to taste like this or whether somebody had accidentally substituted salt for sugar."

  • "I always forget how romantic this space is and the ambiance did not disappoint. Our friends who were new to the place were pleasantly surprised. The service was warm, attentive and professional. Drawbacks were that the flavours were not necessarily up to the rest of the restaurant quality. My smoked cod gnocchi was delicious but my husband was disappointed in his risotto. Although rice was perfectly cooked, he found the squash risotto cloyingly sweet. The desserts were also bit underwhelming. We have not yet given up on this Vancouver classic and will return with perhaps some different choices from the menu."

  • "We took an oversea guest to this restaurant for westcoast food. We were bit unsure since neither of us had been there before. / Well, the place lived up to its reputation - great food, beautiful restaurant, good service. This may be one of the best places in town for true northwest cuisine. Definitely will be back"

  • "My wife and I took an out of town guest to Brix. As we had an early reservation, we decided to avail of the early sitting Set Menu. Each course offered a choice of two items. We all agreed the offerings were excellent in quality, flavour and beautifully presented. The ambience in the atrium area was deIightfully elegant with a moderate noise level which allowed casual conversation. We would highly recommend the Brix restaurant and intend to return ourselves."

  • "This place is a must see and you must sit in the courtyard area. It's covered but not completely, there are side vents that are open and it really feels nice and like you're outside. There are heaters so you won't get cold. Wine selection is outstanding! I ordered pickled beet salad and the goat cheese creme brulee was amazing. I ordered Beef Tenderloin and it was soooo flavorable. Server and owner were friendly and hospitable. I would definitely come back to try to the game hem and others."

  • "I am a repeat patron of this restaurant. It is without a doubt my favorite downtown place to dine. The food is always spectacular, the service is unobtrusive yet extremely efficient. I prefer to eat out in the atrium because it makes me feel as though I'm dining in Europe. From start to finish the whole evening was a delicious dining experience."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at Brix. Our table of four shared 6 small plates and a bottle of wine. Fun way to taste many things offered on the menu. The service was great. The server was very helpful. A bit crowed in terms of seating…. wish they could spread out the tables a bit since the restaurant was not full. Overall a very enjoyable evening."

  • "we enjoyed a meal at Brix very much about three weeks ago and, on the basis of that, decided to take two friends for a meal. Although we enjoyed sitting in the courtyard three weeks ago, the heat and cold blasts this time out us off. As well, my partner's striploin was overcooked, not medium- rare as he requested, and uninteresting as a result. I did like my striploin and the spaetzle that came with it."

  • "Myself and my girlfriend go to a lot of nice restaurants in the greater Vancouver area and this by far is one of the best !!, Excellent food and service, great atmosphere and very good for a romantic evening. Will Definitely go back and make sure you make a reservation."

  • "Had not been to Brix for a few years and can't imagine why not. Enjoyed a lovely mid week meal in the courtyard. Knowledgeable, attentive service paired with delicious food made for an excellent dining experience. Will not wait as long before making our next visit."

  • "Our foursome had an exquisite dinner in the outside courtyard, warm even though it was a wet and chilly night beyond the curtains. The food and wine were excellent - each one of us raved! I was also impressed as we could have a lively conversation and hear each other despite a fairly crowded evening - this was especially precious for one of our party who usually has trouble hearing and had none that night. Just absolutely charming and extremely delicious."

  • "Great wine list, yummy appies... Can't remember what we had lol. Gnocchi was not as good as I had hoped. Great atmosphere! Service was a little slower than previous visits"

  • "Decided to choose Brix for a romantic dinner because of how interesting, and nice it looked from the street. Discovered there was a First Seating menu, which is amazing value. The food was absolutely delicious, though our server lost interest in us once we asked for and ordered from that menu, which is slightly disappointing. But the ambience, food, and value for money completely overshadowed the mediocre service. The courtyard (enclosed) is amazing, doesn't feel like you're in a Vancouver restaurant."

  • "Brix is a lovely restaurant and on my first visit every dish was tasty with lots of background flavour -- obviously made with care and imagination. But when I returned with friends on another night, our waiter ignored us and two out of four of us found our food underwhelming. Disappointing, but wouldn't give up entirely on Brix as our first time was a very positive experience and even on this off-night the hosts and ambience were superb."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I was here on Saturday night with family. The atmosphere is definitely a perfect setting for a night out in Vancouver. I was impressed with the by-the-glass wine list, which tends to be lacklustre at most places. The mussels for an appetizer were outstanding, the miso-glazed pork chops were delicious albeit a tad salty, and the beef tenderloin was a tasty piece of beef but the steak lacked a bit of seasoning. Overall, the eating experience was quite good. However, I found the service at our table to be very poor. 4 or the 6 diners were there 15 minutes before the last 2, and we did not get a drink order during those 15 minutes. I had a question about possible sediment in my wine and was quite rudely told it was nothing to worry about."

  • "Next time we'll book a courtyard table for the ambience. The food was excellent, the choices sufficient and the service was just right."

  • "My partner and I hadn't been to Brix in quite some time and decided to bring along some friends. I had forgotten how just how lovely the ambiance is from the dramatic, romantic entrance to the exposed brick to the lovely lighting details. Many of Vancouver's restaurants are VERY crowded with tables only 6 inches from one another. Brix is lovely and spacious. Brix has an inventive and delicious cocktail list. The buffalo mozzarella salad was of generous portions and yummy. I had a mushroom pasta that was on the feature sheet. It exceeded expectations. We had a lingering dinner and never felt like we were being rushed out the door. We won't let so much time lapse in between visits."

  • "This is our third or fourth time at Brix. On every occasion, we have felt spoiled by the excellent service. This time, it took quite a while for our entrees to arrive (1 hour since order), but our server and the manager were apologetic and attentive. The food was delicious. The mussels are good to order if only for the bites of homemade bacon and the deliciously crispy and spicy bread on top. I had the pork chop on cauliflower risotto and my girlfriend had the baked salmon. Both good, but the pork chop was great."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Brix was an excellent restaurant. The only negative was the hostess at George. We unknowingly walked into George, although our reservation was for Brix. The hostess didn't handle the situation very well at all and was quite rude."

Service is of top attention even though we used the coupon, some restaurants provided much less service level when they saw the coupon. Will definitely come back and recommend to friends."

  • "We had eaten here before but we were in the courtyard last time which was very quiet and pleasant. This time we were inside and the noise level was "energetic", or what I would call "too high". The room is like an echo chamber - way too loud and I was very glad to get out. Everything else was very good. If you go there and you are not into energetic noise levels, ask to be seated in the courtyard. I guess a lot of people like it noisy: if so you have that option."

  • "This is a truly classy restaurant. The food is delicious and the ambience is perfect. The servers are very attentive but not overbearing at all. The kale salad was very good as was the wild salmon. They also have a great wine list. We were a group of friends and sat inside the restaurant which was lovely, but they also have a covered, heated brick courtyard with vines growing on the walls which I think would be perfect for a romantic dinner for two. Will definitely be back!"

  • "inside was lovely with chandaliers and warm exposed brick . Service was prompt & I enjoyed early pre-theatre dinner special. My husband had the brined pork a la carte. The kale salad, like a caesar , but had a lovely light anchovy vinaigrettte instead of the heavy anchovy dressing . Salmon with the crab was delicious & the pannacotta with raspberry perfect . Shared a bottle of BC pinot noir, priced reasonably. The courtyard was heated and we could have sat outside- but at minus 11- I thought we'd enjoy the restaurant's interior !"

The restaurant itself is beautiful, and the service was great. The ribeye was the best steak I've had in a long time. Highly recommended!"

  • "We dined at Brix on Saturday Feb 1st. We were out of towners and didn't realize it was "Dine out", but the fixed menu was really good. I was impressed with the amount of food we got for $48 and they had a great wine list. The service was excellent and the ambiance was really nice. We sat outside in the atrium which I think would be lovely in the summer. They really pumped the heat, but we were by the door so it ended up okay. I would definitely go back to try parts of their staple menu."
