    We were absolutely delighted to sit outside with the most beautiful view of the wine country. It felt like a retreat, so peaceful and very well looked after. The restaurant was good, and service great. We can't wait to go back on our next visit.

    We had a wonderful meal at Brix. The menu was varied, and we wish we were local so that we could come back more often. The outside setting is especially attractive. We came after sunset, and did not have a full opportunity to walk the beautiful gardens. They had pictures, and I can see why it is a popular venue for outdoor dining. The architecture and decor are beautiful. and the paintings on the wall by a Napa artist are magnificent. They have a great wine list (appropriate for Napa), but we brought wine we had purchased while on a wine tour. The $15 corkage fee was reasonable, and we saved on that expense. Even if you only have one night for dining in Napa (as we did), you will not make a mistake by dining here.

We came a little early and enjoyed cocktails by the fireplace/lounge area. Super cozy feel. Our new favorite spot for cocktails and appitizers or a late dinner.

    The atmosphere was terrific, and we were ready for a memorable evening. Alas, we struggled all night with getting the attention of our waiter. And it's not because the restaurant was busy. Even when he was at our table, it was clear that he wasn't really with us. Really a shame, as most everything else was tremendous. Then again, I can quickly name ten other spots in the Napa Valley that I'd rather return to before this spot. Too bad.

    The reservation was mis-handled badly, even though the restaurant was less than half full. The staff left the impression that they couldn't accommodate us, even though the reservation was made and confirmed. Once seated, the service was gracious and the food was good though not as exceptional as I have previously experienced there. The food was lukewarm, though tasty.

    We arrived early and requested outdoor seating. The staff accommodated our request and we were seated ahead of our reservation time in Carlos B. serving area. The view was lovely and Carlos was very attentive - but not intrusive! - during our entire dining experience. Carlos was able to answer questions about the food and that helped us make great selections. The food tasted wonderful and was prepared exactly as requested. Even though there is great energy at the Brix, the mood still allows for intimate conversation that makes for a more romantic dining spot. I've been to Brix several times over the past year or so and continue to enjoy the menu and wine list. Carlos, thank you for making it a lovely experience to cap our Napa visit.

    The restaurant itself is very nice. There is a beautiful garden area where much of the produce for the restaurant is grown. The service was very good. However, the food was disappointing. My mushroom risotto was tasty but my husband's salmon had no seasoning and was tasteless. Will not be returning.

    This was my second visit to Brix in Napa. I enjoyed it so much the first time, I had my birthday dinner there last Friday night. We had a group of 8. The server was fantastic, he recommended some wonderful wines. Everything we had was fabulous! We all loved the brussel sprouts. I would definitely go to this restaurant again. Overall, wonderful service, ambience, food is spectacular. I love this place!

    TBH, I'm not exactly sure how I learned about Brix besides driving past it Napa visit after Napa visit. I initially just booked my dinner reservation then decided to add the Kelleher wine tasting experience. Two options: their choice of menu or mine. I decided to go with my menu as I was most interested in their veggie options (NJ restaurants don't offer much in veggies besides the usual frozen zucchini and squash) and I was not disappointed. Started with Saffron Mussels which were terrific but I (just me) would have preferred more crunch to the bread provided for dipping into the savory sauce. Followed by lamb meatballs and I'm Still talking about them! So the lamb meatball is stuffed with mozzarella, big deal, it's the pepperocini that makes ALL the difference and provides just a hint of heat. All things considered, I'll return to Brix just for those lamb meatballs. Fried green beans with a spicy honey mustard sauce didn't disappoint either and the same goes for the Brussel Sprouts. Looking forward to my next Napa trip and returning to Brix along with the Kelleher tasting.

    Ashley was our server and she was outstanding. While not offered on the menu, she broke our entire meal into courses given we wanted to split appetizers so we went through a 4-5 course meal from the feel of it. Great views and fun to know much of what you are eating literally comes a few feet away from their garden. Great rib-eye cooked perfectly. Ashley gave us champagne on the house the moment we sat down as well, lovely gesture.

    We stopped into Brix for Lunch last Thursday….waited for a table on your spectacular patio and so glad we did. You have one of the most incredible settings in all of Napa Valley. The food was delish - I had the beet salad, which was amazing…we also shared one of your artichoke dips to start - excellent indeed. All the staff were incredibly hospitable. Everything was so great that we stopped in last Saturday afternoon about 4:00pm - you weren't really open but we allowed us to order a bottle of rose and enjoy it out in the garden. Greg went above and beyond - hauling chairs around for us - continued to check on us - all before his shift was even going to start!! That is hospitality at its best!! Thank you Brix - we'll be back!

    I love it when the atmosphere is so inviting, the apertif and wine offerings are so spot on, with service that doesn't miss a beat, that you hardly feel like you need to eat as the dinner arrives. Of course the menu selections were so well done that we went ahead and enjoyed that part as well. I'm super happy to have made the drive and definitely look forward to a return visit. (the fried greenbeans were green and fresh...and hardly needed the light tempura. would love to be there for an experiment in leaving it off during the indian summer and fall seasons). thank you.

    This is one of my all time favorites to take visitors to the Napa Valley. If you can get outdoor seating or at least a window seat on the west side of the restaurant, you are in for a beautiful view of the gardens and the western hills. It truly feels like another place altogether, and very special. The food is always excellent, as is the service. I was also very happy to see many local wine selections in a great range of prices. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves food and wants a specail experience.
