Everything was perfect except it was way too loud to enjoy dinner. It seems something is needed to improve acoustics and absorb sound.

Had a great meal at Brixton
Had a great meal at Brixton with awesome chicken and burger. Great range of beers and attentive service. It was perfect for a Tuesday evening as not too busy and as noisy as at weekends

I thought it was strange for them not to close to the door even though it was cold outside and everyone at my table had their jacket on. We were told it was because the owner likes to keep the door open, which is fine and I understand that, but it was super windy on Sunday and the wind was blowing straight on to us. Just a bit odd.

We were in SF for a weekend, working the days at a wine event. I had no real knowledge of where to make a dinner reservation for a party of 6. I made reservations at one place, then would second guess myself, and cancel. Then start all over. I finally decided to select this place, and decided we were just going to go for it! My group was between 45-55 years old, and on this night, a Saturday, we were certainly older than most of the patrons. We were quickly seated, and we enjoyed excellent service, the food recommendations were awesome, and there was no corkage fee for the wine we brought in! Ya! We had a great booth, in a great location where we could watch all of the young beautiful people, enjoy themselves in the bar area. Fun!

Prime Rib Sunday means $20 for 14oz Prime Rib with Loaded Baked Potato - great deal AND very delicious!
The burger is also very good and can compete with the likes of Roam and Umami no problem.

We went here based on great reviews on Open Table. We were not disappointed. We ordered the prime rib. The portions were very generous. We were very impressed. I was pleasantly surprised with the wine selection. I had a great Cab. I will likey go back here.

a wonderful lunch experience...
Our server, I don't remember her name, was exceptional. Attentive and courteous. She always said
"cheers" after every service of a new beverage. She was very sweet.
I dined with a friend tues afternoon April 23 rd and used a $100 open table check.
Thanks for a nice experience!!

I've been here as a bar and came for dinner/warriors playoff game but definitely didn't expect the food to be this good! Literally was amazed, expecting bar food and got 5 star restaurant food!

Good food at reasonable prices
Had eaten here for lunch and recently returned for dinner. We thought the food was great with plenty of options for adults and kids (there is a kids menu) and good value for money. I had the tuna salad which was delicious. Deserts were also great. Will return.

Good food in this Union Street neighborhood spot with a hard rock taste. It's good stuff and a little edgy. The food is very traditional, but the atmosphere is all rock and roll.

I believe her name is Angelica. She knew it was our 27th wedding anniversary. She made it very special for us. You have a great employee.

Young, hip and high energy
Food is good, clientele attractive, service great, drinks delicious, atmosphere exuberant.

There were three of us dining and we really enjoyed the evening. The food was pretty good - you must share the giant meatball as an appetiser - the only thing that stopped me giving the food 4 stars is that the steak that two of us ordered was slightly overdone and swimming in the sauce/gravy that come with it, making it quite overpowering. My husband had the burger and would rate it 4 stars.
Our server (Rachel, blonde girl from New Zealand) was wonderful, really friendly and attentive. As soon as we told her we were in no hurry the service was slowed down for us to a really enjoyable pace allowing us time to have a drink and a chat without feeling hassled.
Would recommend this to all.

Had delicious eggs and toast and their coffee is pretty good to. I even had a Mimosa, which was just ok, not fantastic. I am sure the other drinks are really good!

When I rendezvoused in San Francisco with my WA state sis, we chose the Brixton because of its extended hours. It did not disappoint us. We had a really nice time, and took advantage of the Tuesday extended Happy Hour. Our waiter was attentive, and made our visit memorable.

Great place for large brunch groups. Great service, drinks, and food.

Nice lunch salads
We stopped for lunch and enjoyed the Ahi and chicken/beet salads. Would definitely go again.

Great food, excellent service
We went in and had a really good dinner. The half chicken was
outstanding as was the kale salad. The desserts were tasty and incredibly
priced at just $5.

Friendly local hotspot
We did brunch and was great. I had eggs Benedict with salmon and my companion had skirt steak over potatoe salad. Both were outstanding. Also, best Bloody Mary ever. Outside dining really on sidewalk but seems to be popular with the locals. Service was good and inside dining toward front of restaurant would be my recommendation.

Holiday Social at Brixton
Restaurant has a friendly, neighborhood feel. I had the thinly sliced rib eye French dip with Swiss, served with au jus. It was well
seasoned, tender, and flavorful, and was served on a soft French roll. It also comes with a side of half potato fries and half sweet potato fries, which were crunchy and satisfying. Wait staff was attentive and effective. Bar interior is pleasant and flat screen television is available. Vibrant social crowd surrounds bar. This is a great place for a quick and reasonable all American meal at a super, popular upscale neighborhood. Street parking can be a challenge at times.

This was our second dinner at The Brixton. Everything was consistently very good from cocktails to appetizers to our main meal. The selection of dishes is fun, interesting, and fantastic. We'll be back!

yum sweet potato fries
Good place for a leisurely Saturday lunch. We sat for 3 hours and the staff was totally cool about it!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for group brunch!
We were a party of 6 and very happy that we could make reservations ahead of time for brunch versus waiting forever. They were extremely accommodating as we waited for our last friend to arrive. Their apple cinnamon muffin was AMAZING! The poached eggs were just okay. Fried chicken and crab was good. Would definitely come back again.

Good dinner in a good neighbor
On a Sunday night we decided to grab dinner! I looked for a nearby place, with good reviews and great prices! We found the Brixton and I'm happy we did. On Sundays they do a Prime Rib Special which was not only a great deal but wonderful. My boyfriend got that and I had the hamburger. I added everything they had to offer and it was great! I had their signature cocktail, the seasonal berry one and it was good. If you like fruity drinks, that's the one for you!
The food and drinks were good as well as the service; though it was lacking sometimes. Our food was brought and then we weren't checked on for awhile and at the end someone different closed us out. I thought that part was odd, but overall, when she was around she was great!

The food and service was terrific.
Will be back again.

Prime Rib Sundays
Bar scene is hopping and quite noisy. Try to get seated in the front, near the fireplace. Drinks were perfect (blue cheese stuffed olive martinis!, Sazerac were ordered). A romaine Caesar was split and we had to ask if they forgot to cut portions in half. It was fresh, tangy blue cheese Caesar dressing and also pear, kale salad were excellent. On Sundays a $20! Prime Rib was served with huge delicious stuffed (sour cream, bacon, green onions) baked potato, al dente string beans. I had the best ever blackened salmon(wild, yet farmed??) that literally melted in your mouth. A freshly made turnover chock full of chunks of apple was topped with a Chocolate sorbet-yum! We spent $67 per couple, taking prime rib home for two.

We ate a bunch of appetizers and loved everything! The only thing we were a little disappointed by was the spinach artichoke dip

If the door is open five minutes before 11 and there is a line of people outside, there would be no harm at all in going ahead and seating people a little early. The staff was clearly ready to go and standing around. If you don't want to let anyone in early then keep the door shut. Just a little annoyance, but when I walk in and say we're here for our 11am reservation and then am ignored or told to wait outside until the precise dot of 11, it doesn't make a great first impression.
The food and our waiter were fantastic - this isn't the first time the host/bar staff have brought down the overall experience for me.
