Diner Reviews
  • "Good for the whole family, Brix serves what we like. Whether you select an old favorite or try something new, Brix offers a variety of fun and delicious food and wine. One of our favorite date nights or family dining places"

  • "Wonderful little bistro hidden in a strip mall. Worth the trip."

  • "For my boyfriend's birthday, we decided on a "staycation" out in the Dulles area (we're city-dwellers). I found Brix on opentable and we google mapped our way there from the hotel. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall and is very unassuming. When we pulled up, we both thought it was going to be kind of a neighborhood sports bar. But once we got in (and back out)...ohhh! We sat in the back patio area, where the ambiance was great. We ordered an appetizer, two main dishes, and 2 desserts. Everything was excellent and better than either of us had expected! Honestly, I felt like I got more than what we paid for, and he is still raving about his birthday dinner here!"

  • "For a resto in a strip mall or shopping center, this is a pretty good spot. The decor is nice and the menu is expansive, the food is tasty. Definitely recommend it."

  • "5 of us went to dinner, all ordering some different type of seafood. Not one plate went back with anything on it! My daughter loves the scallop special and I had the crab cakes, with spinach on the side, which was outstanding(!). We went on a Sunday night and it wasn't too crowded. Service was reasonably good, although I could've had my water glass refilled a little more frequently."

  • "Brix is a nice place for dinner (why I went). Good wine list, all the way from decent wines to nice wines. ($38-$60 bottles mostly). The service was fantastic, and I felt compelled to go over my standard 20%. If you can stand a couple mosquito bites, sit outside. it's a little more secluded and the ambiance is great."

  • "I usually love Brix as an alternative to Reston dining, but my meal this past weekend was blah....will probably not go back. Positive note, service was good despite my meal not being very good."

  • "Food was great, service good. Wine corkage fee of $30 was a bit outrageous. But, i would go back."

  • "Brx is always a mixed experience. The outdoor patio is comfortable, quiet, and protected from rain. The wine list is excellent, if somewhat pricey, and the wine is perfectly maintained. Service is pleasant and competent. But, I am sorry to say, the food is too inconsistent to justify the high price point. The flatbread was great. The burger was ok but not special. My salad with tuna was ok, but the tuna appeared to have been pre-cut and frozen and then thawed to be place on the salad. The least imaginative preparation I have had. Our check for two was $150, of which $100 was for the food. Way too much for these items and this ho-hum preparation."

  • "We just dined at Brix for the third time this year and the food was very good as always. The portions are properly sized, not too much, not too little. Prices are reasonable for such good quality food. The atmosphere is casual yet very nice at the same time. There is an outdoor patio; although we did not sit there, it appeared very comfortable. Service was good. Our server disappeared during our meal, but others stepped in on her behalf. There are generally a couple of nightly specials although the prices for specials are not noted so you have to ask (which I don't like to have to do). "

  • "Don't let the strip mall location put you off: you will get a high-quality meal and good service. Outside dining available, under a canopy: I'm usually not an outside eater, but it was very pleasant. One small quibble: it appeared that the Key Lime pie dessert had been frozen. Regardless, we intend to come back."

  • "Upscale suburban restaurant & bar, with delicious food, vibrant atmosphere, excellent service (our server provided a terrific wine choice to accompany our meal) and reasonable prices. The chef accommodated my slight change request with my dish & it was outstanding."

  • "This restaurant has been in our neighborhood for a few years and we just have never gotten the chance to go and eat there until this past weekend. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is not too visible from the road, but once inside you find a nice atmosphere. The menu has lots of choices. Food was great and our waitress couldn't have been better. We will definitely go back."

  • "Server struggled to name the beers on tap and, as an after thought, asked if we had looked at the drink menu. We hadn't been given a drink menu so she went off to retrieve one for us, which took about 10 minutes. After the drinks came, we ordered appetizers and entrees. I ordered the grouper which was a special that night. 20 minutes later, when entrees should have been served, she appeared at our table to tell us they were out of grouper so I'd need to order something else. I can understand running out of the special but why did it take 20 minutes to let us know? I ordered the salmon instead which was good but no better than I can cook for myself."

  • "My husband and I went with another couple. We had eaten there once previously but the other couple had not. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I started with the mussels appetizer, which was a good sized portion in a robust sauce. Our friend had a lamb sausage appetizer which he really enjoyed. The scallops were served in a sambuca sauce, unique and extremely tasty. My husband and I both had salads, mine with blackened salmon and his with chicken. The service was excellent, as we were busy chatting away and didn't want to order immediately, but the server made himself available whenever we needed him. Overall a very nice dining experience, at a reasonable price. We will definitely be back."

  • "It has been a while since we've been at Brix, and we went for brunch with friends who introduced us to Brix. Service is always pleasant but not overbearing. I had the eggs benedict, which is pretty good, (I don't get them elsewhere). They were not hot hot but warm is my only complaint. The potatoes are tasty and serving is just right. Husband got hash and fried eggs, which he devoured. Hash was tasty but he's had better. Friend's omelet came to her with onions, which she informed the waiter she could not eat, so they had to send it back. It was not crowded so not sure how that mistake was made. Overall a good time and good food. Coffee was good and hot. I would go back and try dinner again."

  • "Wonderful Pita and Gruyere dip with apples. Delicious oriental salad. We weren't rushed at lunch to leave and our waiter was there when we needed him and left us alone to enjoy one another's company."

  • "We have eaten at Brx twice in the last two months and had a great meal both times. The food is excellent and comes with a healthy portion of fresh vegetables. I noticed a low-calorie section of the menu that had some nice choices; I think I'll try one of those next time. We'll definitely be back soon. We were fortunate to meet Ash, the owner and very hospitable gentleman. Highly recommended."

  • "We found this restaurant using open table, and were nicely surprised. The location and name gave me a false expectation. I was half expecting to find a small Chili's type restaurant. However, we found something totally different. Very nice, reasonably portioned, meals were served. Even though it did not immediately appear to be kid friendly, they did have a kids menu and the server was very accomodating to our young daughter. Speaking of the server. She was VERY nice and attentive (but not too much). I would even specifically requesting her. Slodja (I think) was her name."

  • "It had been quite some time since I had eaten at Brix. Our lunch as excellent. Both my colleague and I enjoyed excellent service and very tasty main courses. There are not too many choices for upper scale dinning in the Great Falls / Dranesville area, so it is very good to have top notch, reliable restaurant nearby. There will not be so much time between visits in the future."

  • "I have seen this place change management over several years now. Since it has been Brix, it continues to get better and is now one of my favorites and is as good as it has been. Service, food, ambiance... fantastic place. Highly recommend it."

  • "The food was outstanding. But the liquor and wine prices were exorbitant. We're looking for good found with reasonable prices for wine and liquor. This was not it. Too noisy as well."

  • "This is a local find that proved surprisingly good. I took my family last week for dinner. Inside BRX it is nicely decorated with fully stocked bar, fireplace and dining tables arranged in a flowing manner. With their ability to cover the outside and keep it warm, BRX is also useful for larger events. Our meals were delicious (good wine, too) with my wife enjoying a wonderful bouillabaisse loaded with fresh seafood in a savory broth. We also experienced their salmon and filet mignon, both of which were equally impressive. Food presentation is well done. Not to be missed is the dessert listed as “mini Indulgences” which arrives in small glasses that can be shared. Service was excellent with an attentive staff."

  • "My husband and I have been here for dinner several times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent with very appealing presentation. It is a nice special night out for a meal. I also have lunch there often with a friend and we always enjoy the quiet atmosphere and delicious offerings at lunch. It is becoming one of my favorite restaurants!"

  • "There were 3 of us. All food was very well presented and service was great. My Grouper entre was very good. My mother had bruschetta that she thought would have been good except for too much grated cheese that overpowered it. It would probably be better to provide such strong cheese on the side. My wife had portabella mushroom sandwich that she thought had far too much oil. We had lunch here a few months ago and were more pleased with our food. Overall, I do like this restaurant and will probably return."

  • "We are happy to find that the small changes and special items that are always added to the menu stretch the legs of this new local favorite. Their nightly specials are always fresh and inviting, always wanting to try it before its replaced, albiet by something just as good or better!"
