    Brix is always my restaurant of choice for my last night during crush season. Sitting on the back patio for dinner and watching the wine train in the distance is always a perfect wrap up to my Napa Visit. The food was just yummy and always consistent. The music was heavenly and the service was second to none. As I was traveling solo, I didn't feel rushed or pushed out. The waiter made sure that I had everything I needed and went above and beyond = thanks Jorge. I

    Brix is located right in the midst of a Napa Vineyard and offers great views both inside and out. The food was excellent and we particularly enjoyed the oysters, salmon, Eggs Benedict, peach-stuffed French toast, Triffle and an assortment of other delicious desserts. Alfredo provided impeccable, friendly service as did our hostess behind the bar. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to come again.

    Our party of 4 were each thrilled with our food. Excellent choices and excellent flavors. It was a lovely night and we sat outside. the temperature was perfect and the atmosphere was relaxed. Our service was okay but we found ourselves wishing we had one of the other waiters beside ours. He made no attempt to "connect" with any of us. He covered the bare essentials and did not measure up to the rest of our experience.

    If you have the opportunity, eat on the patio. You'll have a sunset view of the back lawn, garden, and vineyard and will perhaps get a glimpse of the evening "wine train" as it goes by. 4 stars overall as our waiter was a bit hard to find after dinner was served (e.g.: getting dessert, the bill, etc.)

    The food was good but not great. However our service was some of the poorest that we have received anywhere in the Napa Valley. On the positive side, it appeared that other diners with different servers were getting very good to great service.

    Our son and his family live in Napa. Lucky us! We went there on our first trip to Napa and had a lovely evening with drinks on the patio while the sun set, then a scrumptious dinner inside where the wine and food were excellent and the ambience conducive to conversation around a large table. Now, every trip, we close our vacation with a dinner at Brix.

    Everything about BRIX is amazing. The food is creative, fresh, and has a level of complexity that shows great restraint. Our server, Vincent, was attentive and had good suggestions for us without being over-bearing. We ate outdoors on a perfect day and enjoyed their wonderful wines with our meal while we enjoyed the view of the gardens and the surrounding hills.

    We made reservations for lunch at 12:30 on Sunday of Labor Day weekend and when we got seated we were told that it was all a brunch buffet.....we had already had a breakfast at our hotel. I would have really appreciated when I made the reservation to have known that only a buffet was going to be available. I certainly would not have booked our reservation so far in advance to ensure we could get lunch this day. On top of that our server moved at incredibly slow speeds and we basically had to beg for our check....which was pretty pricey for what we got. Beautiful spot, but would most likely never go back.

    A wine expert friend recommended us to come to Brix for the wine (he didn't mention anything about food however). I made a reservation for dinner and had some of the wine from their wine list and it was indeed excellent. For food, our waiter recommended the pasta and steak but we wanted to try something a bit different. We had a chicken and a lamb and both were done very nicely. The service was exceptional. We enjoyed the food and the service a lot more than Auberge du Soleil in many ways.

    Beautiful patio setting overlooking organic garden, vineyards and mountains. Our waiter, Alfredo, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, the area attractions and wine selection. He was attentive and engaging. We appreciated the delightful organically grown foods which truly were outstanding. The maple rubbed bacon in the BLT and the summer squash tomato soup were divine. Lovely, relaxing setting outside patio for lunch---we didn't want to leave! the interior of the restaurant seemed to have a setting for everyone-pleasant ambiance and also bar area.

    The nice thing about this place is how they don't put on a show. They let the place and scenery speak for itself. They let you wander the grounds with a glass of wine while you wait on your table, and then come out to the grounds to get you when it's ready. I would recommend you arrive early before your reservation so you can spend more time wandering and enjoying the sunset. The wait staff are not chatty unless you have questions. Instead they are quietly efficient and responsive. The whole point seems to be to give you peace with your company and your meal - which by the way was rich and very delicious. I'm still craving the risotto.

    A fabulous location with an amazing view combined with innovative local foods. We are going back again for dinner after having had lunch before. The wine list includes many smaller Napa blends and the food choices are based on primarily local products. The food is good and not over the top in terms of trying to out-do some other restaurants, so it is flavor of the ingredients that wins out.

    Based on the plentiful good reviews, I made reservations for brunch for my boyfriend's 50th birthday. Although the outdoor seating provides a lovely scenic view, and the service was good, the main event, the food, was quite a disappointment. This is a standard family style brunch with mid-quality food, just a step above a chain food restaurant. Not at all a fine dining experience. For the price, I expected a much better quality and selection.

    My husband and I have been to Brix before for dinner and understand the high prices...quality food, great service etc. However, we attended Sunday brunch last weekend prior to a tasting and the cost was astronomical for two ppl for brunch and one Mimosa - $100+ We don't eat like most americans...we love a little of this and that. The portions were beautifully done but still, how much can one eat. Really overpriced although the assortment was wonderful.

The strawberry-ginger cocktail I had included the freshest strawberries ... it was probably the best cocktail I've ever had. I was in a party of 4, and each of the 4 of us had totally different entrees that were all great. Service was very friendly and the ambiance/scenery was awesome.

    We mostly enjoyed an outdoor Sunday brunch at Brix. The main complaint was the wasps attacking our food and us and trying to monopolize the table. It seems that management has never heard of wasp traps. We would be unlikely to eat outdoors again in the summer unless traps were hung. The food was good but expensive ($42.50 for brunch, excluding mimosas) but, except for dessert did not have a large number of choices. Raw seafood bar, Eggs Benedict, an omelet station, cheeses and a few cold meat selections comprised the buffet. Service was very friendly, but there were some glitches - after telling us that the waiters would help with the wasps by promptly clearing plates, our waitress passed by 4 times before we got her to remove them.
