We had a great meal and the service was terrific. Unfortunately there was a very loud, nerdy engineer that we had to listen to. My husband has been a software engineer at a large tech company for 30 years and he wasn't impressed. However, we would go back.

Flagstaff is blessed to have such a quaint spot to enjoy such fine dining. The service is impeccable and the food is outstanding.

Eating at Brix is an entire experience! There is ambience, great service, off the richter scale food, and a fantastic wine list. I couldn't recommend it any higher.

Brix delivers again!
Brix is our favorite restaurant in Flagstaff and we make it a point to eat there every time we're in town. The menu is interesting, albeit somewhat limited, and every dish is well prepared and delicious. My only wish is that Brix had a few more appetizers/starters on the menu that people can share. But that's a minor flaw compared to the overall experience. So if you're up for a memorable meal, this is the place to go.

Really Good Food
Kinda cramped inside eating area, wished we would have chosen outside. Our first time so not sure of a consistent menu, however there was a limited number of entrées. The duck breast and plolenta was excellent. The trout was small but very good. Dessert with Flourless chocolate cake hit the spot. Not kid type of foods...unless adventurous. We'll go back when in town.

A neighborhood gem. Our first visit and we were not dissapointed. Great food and drinks.

First Stop Back in Flagstaff
In summer we not only escape from Phoenix, but TO Brix. We love the creative menu and casual elegance. Our server also happened to be the bar tender, yet she managed to be available for questions, and even chit chat, despite bar duties. Our meal was superb. We shared one entree (risotto), an appetizer (summer squash soup), salad (a perfect Caesar - a compromise - I wanted the beet), and desserts (orange blossom brulee), and had left overs for lunch. For once I ignored the amazing wine list in favor of a martini, and wasn't sorry. We'll make it back again before we leave town, if only because I need to try one of their super creative signature cocktails.
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were recommended to try Brix by a foodie friend and so happy we did! We shared the cheese plate appetizer and each had the duck entree. It was a meal we won't soon forget.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Three at our table enjoyed the duck breast which was tender and perfectly prepared on a bed of grits.. The fourth diner had pasta and he thought it was good. Appetizer of mushroom tart left us yearning for more as it was yummy and the arugula with it so tasty. Three of us had beet salads and would choose it again.
Our table was by an open door to the patio so we had the best of both. Tables for two looked perfect for a romantic dinner. The wine we chose was a Brewer Clifton pinot and it was wonderful.
The only negative was the music, which was loud and jarring. Our server immediately turned it down when asked. Service was very good and we all look forward to a repeat visit.

A favorite in Flagstaff or anywhere
This was a very good place. The food was well thought out and great tasting with lots of flavor. The fried bread pudding desert was phenomenal. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Wonderful dinner in Flagstaff!
So happy to have chosen as our last dinner in Flagstaff! The food was perfect and our waiter was very attentive and great! I asked what the "Vini del Barrio" was similar to and the waiter immediately brought me a sample, of which we got a bottle because there was 3 of us and the price was just right. We had the duck, steak frites, and risotto...all were amazing! The chicken meatballs and field greens were great appetizers! My husband an I shared the orange blossom creme brûlée and our friend had the huckleberry-ginger sorbet...both were very refreshing and delicious! Highly recommend!

Patio dining is the best in Flag
The food is great all year long, but the food and Summer ambiance on the patio cannot be topped in Flagstaff and for miles around. What an experience. We never tire of it and the cheeses are superb
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We wanted to go to Brix one time before we move from Flagstaff. It is too expensive to be a regular part of our lives, but it was a wonderful bucket-list experience. I'm glad Flagstaff has it.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of our best dinners in Flagstaff. Recommended to us by our B&B owners. So good we went back a second time on a 4 night stay. The crispy pork shank was outstanding! Special preparation with peach-coriander jam. The chef explained the special method for crisping the shank and they prepared a special side dish of seasonal Fiddlehead Ferns upon our request. Good wine pairings by Alli, our excellent server both nights. Outdoor seating one night was very pleasant. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our meal at Brix
We enjoyed our meal at Brix while visiting Flagstaff; it is comparable to another fine Flagstaff restaurant, Josephine's. The servers are a bit unpolished; they should be required to look more presentable and have any tatoos covered, especially on their arms!!!
The food was tasty and service was friendly; the small rear patio is lovely for outdoor dining.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dine on the patio if you can
Since it wasn't busy the night we arrived, the host offered us a table on the patio which was great. Good regional cuisine items and a good wine list here. Loved the cheese and charcuterie, and the seasonal old fashioned cocktail was very refreshing. (Does that make it a "new " fashioned if it's seasonal?)
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
More than expected. And I expected!
Celebrated 45th Anniversary here. Incredible food flavors! Incredible service! Had Squash Blossoms (YUMMMMMMM,) for appetizers, the Baby Spinach Salad and Heirloom Beet Salads were both OFF THE HOOK! Wife had Halibut w/Gnocchi, and I reveled in the Duck Breast with Aleppo Pepper Grits!!! Both were fantastic!! Finished off with Creme Brûlée, both vanilla and orange blossom! As good as in Paris! The servers were delightful, and really worked as a team! We loved this little out of the way place!!

Unexpected Surprise in Flagstaff!
We overnighted in Flagstaff (on our way to the Grand Canyon) and Brix was reviewed in our hotel dining guide. We decided to give it a try, and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, unique, and beautiful! The wine list was varied and provided options for any palate. The staff was friendly, helpful (when making selections), and offered some great ideas for continuing our night out in "Staff's" small and quirky downtown.
I'd recommend the pork, but since the menu changes seasonally, be sure to ask your server for the latest dish. You won't be disappointed!
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just one more bite please!!
That was our motto for the evening. Scrumptious dinner from beginning to end. Visiting from Scottsdale and chose Brix based on Internet reviews. This was one of the best meals ever! I never had fried green tomatoes before but these were a delicacy not to be missed. We were thrilled with the homemade pasta dish and the halibut cooked to perfection. And the cherry pecan bread pudding was to die for! Outstanding service and friendly staff too. Highly recommend and we'll make a point to come back next time we visit.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've written up Brix before, so all I'll say is that when my birthday trip to Telluride fell through due to a scheduled medical procedure, the only thing I could think to do to make it up to myself was to dine at Brix. The food, ambiance and service are all top notch, and I always come away feeling pampered. Thanks, Brix, for making my birthday all better!
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing! We will be back!
One of the best meals I have ever had in my life!! Get the duck, beet salad, fried green tomatoes, risotto, lamb, etc. Run do not walk to Brix!!!

Brix in Flagstaff, AZ
We stumbled onto Brix in 2012 and had a marvelous dinner on the patio. I made the reservation in March this year when we planned out summer vacation that would take us to Flagtaff on the way home. We weren't disappointed. This is a restaurant I would go out of the way for. Hmmm. My next weekend get-a-way just might be for a trip to BRIX for dinner. It is that good!

The patio is the best spot in Flag
Brix is a marvelous limited menu.....with the emphasis on marvelous. Try the cheese appetizer....it's not just ordinary. The service is superb and, if you eat on the patio it is one of the most comfortable dining experiences we have had, this side of NYC. If it is cold or raining you have to go inside and that is nothing like the patio. It is a nice restaurant, a little noisy inside and a little bland......but the food is still superb.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Friends knew we were visiting Flagstaff for my birthday and gifted us with a gift certificate. Best gift ever. From the appetizers to salad to main course to dessert, everything was delicious. Even nicer is the fact that Brix, and it's sister restaurant Criollo that we tried later in the week, both use and are proud to support local farms. Dinner at Brix was a highlight of our vacation, which is hard to do considering how rich Flagstaff is with hiking, adventure and art as well!

A Superb Experience
My wife and I dined here for the second time and were truly impressed with the experience on both occasions. The food is amazing, and the selections are wonderful. The menu varies from night to night based on the fresh ingredients available - many of which are proudly locally sourced. The crispy pork shank I had was incredibly delicious and the duck my wife had was even better. Our server was attentive and cheerful and offered good advice. The wine list is fun and has some nifty off beat selections from boutique wineries. We will return! Yum. We have eaten in many fine restaurants this summer (as we travelled extensively) and this was as good as any!

A birthday delight!
Our first time to Brix in Old Flagstaff and what a gem it is! Found it while perusing restaurants in Flag on Open Table. I wanted something special for my birthday and was not in anyway disappointed! The pork shank was the best ever and the antipasti was a yummy started. Our waitress, Allie, was excellent in menu explanations and recommendations...service was first rate.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining experience
Everything about the dining experience was excellent: the food, the service, the setting. Brix is Flagstaff''s very best restaurant, and certainly one of the 10 best in AZ. The pork shank, in particular, was scrumptious.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Gem of a restaurant
Glad we found and experienced Brix. Ceasar salads were excellent. Two in our party enjoyed the crispy pork shank. I was content with the duck breast. The wine selection was OK, but the prices had gone up substantially from what is currently shown on the web site and we found that a number of wines were out of stock.

Excellent, ambitious menu, informal but very high quality service

We started out with a 5 sample charcuterie platter that was great. Our dinners seemed small portioned but ended up as a lot of food. Overall the experience was worth the price.

This was the best meal we've had during our two weeks in America. Sensible portions, delicious food, varied and interesting menu.
Waiter was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful and gave good wine recommendation.
International style cuisine, well presented.
Would definitely recommend.

Continues to be a favorite
Our son attends NAU in Flagstaff. Whenever we go to visit he asks us to take him to Brix. Really nice location. Very friendly staff. Wine list shows some unique selections from Colorado/CA. Fun to try something new. The menu presents fresh options from local sources. Very tasty. Recommended.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very accomplished wine list. Food was good but not outstanding. We arrived after having had a late lunch so were not very hungry. Since we ordered only appetizer, soup and salads our view is somewhat constrained. The squash soup was good. Salad was ok. A little sparse on embellishments but good dressing. I had an appetizer of rabbit with crispy crust which was overly cooked and crisp...a little like KC chicken if it were not for the very nice sauces that accompanied it. Staff was attentive but distracted by too many diners needing assistance. Decor was eclectic but interesting. Overall a nice but not memorable experience.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always fresh and delicious I had the tastiest portion of shrimp and polenta with spicy peppers. The balance was perfect The wine list is good and the cocktails special too.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for a special meal
A surprise finding in an unexpected location. Don't judge by the exterior as you pull up, a gourmet meal is waiting for you inside. By my estimation the best in Flagstaff.

A dining gem in Flagstaff
We arrived in Flagstaff after a long road trip, and decided on the Brix after carefully considering the reviews of various restaurants in Flagstaff. The Brix looked to fit our needs, and so we went. The restaurant delivered in all respects. We dined in a quiet room, and both of us had wonderful meals. As we were weary from our long road trip, we wanted a leisurely meal in a quiet, cozy atmosphere. That is just what we got. My Pasta Bolognese was exceptional. My husband thought his Steak Frites was very good.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Service
If you are in Flagstaff you must eat at Brix. The food was great, I had sea bass and my wife had chicken. At the end do our dinner the chef came to our table to talk about our meal.
The service was outstanding as soon as we walked in. Great place don't miss it.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Imaginative Food
The restaurant is a little treasure - the menu shows imaginative flair, the ambience is current and and service is spot on.
Our mains were fabulous: my wife had the rib-eye with trumpet mushrooms; I had the glazed pork shank on a bed of risotto; both were presented with imaginative and exceptionally combined flavors. I had an issue with my risotto which I felt was too al dente for my tastes - it was replated with ancho chili pepper creamed grits, which I felt complemented the strong flavors of the shank even more than the risotto did.
The home-made bread pudding with cherries and walnuts was a great way to end the evening.

Amazing restaurant in Flagstaff
We loved our dinner at Brix. We were happy to find a restaurant that would be excellent in the Phoenix or Tucson dining scenes, but it's in Flagstaff. The hostess was helpful and friendly. Our waiter Dave was attentive, gave great recommendations, and added a lot to the experience. The foot was excellent. The shrimp and grits were a highlight - a really outstanding layering of flavors and textures. The salads were very good, and the Oregon seabass with gnocci was great. The deep fried strawberry bread pudding was a nice finish. It was overall a really good experience and we will definitely go back there next time we're in Flagstaff.

10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always - wonderful but...
I don't eat meat, but I do eat fish. My choices were sea bass at the highest price point on the menu ($36) or risotto ($18). I don't want to eat risotto every time I eat at Brix, and can't often afford a$36 entree plus wine plus salad, etc. Give those of us who don't eat meat another choice or two. It's a college town. My guess is you'd have plenty of takers.

Fabulous and What a Surprise
Large group of us decended on this gem in Flagstaff and tasted our way through the menu. Not an unhappy person in the bunch. Duck yummy, steak great, beet salad as fresh as could be. Loved it.
