Best possible “neighborhood restaurant! We had the specials tonight: in-house made chorizo wrapped in bacon and monkfish wrapped in prosciutto over gnocchi! Sensational! Always extensive wine list and wonderful manager and service.

It was a slightly hot evening but a great time to sit outside with great company and food (plus the bottle of wine didn't hurt). It was an awesome date night!

Enjoyed dinner outside to celebrate our 37th anniversary. Food and service were great and all Covid-related issues were well handled. First place we've been since March and we'll be back soon.

Had a wonderful experience at 20 Brix on Monday night. We had the patio to ourselves with great service and phenomenal food. Even with the current limited wine menu; had no trouble finding a bottle to compliment our meal.

Always enjoy our experiences at 20 Brix. Highly recommend for both special occasions and just a nice evening out. Menu is always slightly changing so gives you a new reason (besides the great wine list) to go back.

20 Brix was closed. They never advised Open Table nor it's customers who made reservations. Covid 19 aside, common courtesy was left behind. We will never ever eat at 20 Brix.

Outstanding food, from appetizer, to soup, to entrée. Service was excellent. Helped me choose a great bottle of wine by allowing me to taste several before having to make a choice. Great job social distancing - felt safe and comfortable. My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide a better selection of bourbon.

I hadn’t been there for lunch in about 2years but chose it for a friends birthday celebration. Four of us dined there and it was very disappointing compared to previous visits. The portion sizes were very small and the food not up to the quality of past meals. Our crab cake lunch dish was the size of an appetizer not an luncheon entree. The creme brûlée crust was burnt and the custard bland.
Our server was okay but didn’t appear very professional, nor attentive, which was amazing as we were the only quests for most of our 12:15 pm reservation.
Based on this experience I will probably not return nor recommend 20 Brix as I have in the past.

The menu food options are always changing and unique. Not much 'traditional' fare, so need to be open to different choices and preparation. Nice atmosphere, always excellent service.

Server had too many tables so he wasn't the most attentive. We had to remind him to bring 2d glass of wine which we had requested, to bring the lemon we requested rather than lime that he brought, to refill water. Just enough small things at a pricey restaurant to keep me from giving 5 stars

Really just ok. Restaurant was cold. Bruschetta appetizer was great. Iberico pork loin was ok, but wasn’t warm when served. Very loud. Wouldn’t return.

Went here for the 1st time this week and was very happy with my experience. The ambiance and decor alone make you feel comfortable when you walk in. It was not crowded or loud inside for a week night. Service was excellent and very polite. The food was so delicious from the appetizers all the way through to dessert. The wine menu is very large and diverse and there are cocktails and beers as well to choose from. I would highly recommend to anyone for a romantic date night to a girls night out. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals and cleaned their plates!

Took more than average time to get drinks served. Waited a longer than usual amount of time to get out meal and when it arrived half the food was barely warm, fries were soggy and mushroom bruschetta appeared completely different than how it appeared when served to table next to us. By then Disappointed with over soggy bread and overcooked egg, and didn’t want to wait another extended period of time for it to be redone. Too bad since it was my husband’s 65th birthday and I picked this restaurant.

Waitress was awesome, friendly, responsive, personable.
Starters (roasted beets and Brussel
Sprouts) were very good.
Wine was very good.
All 4 entrees were bad (fried chicken, shrimp and grits, steak frites) and we were all hungry. Chicken flavor was not good and spinach was like mush. Steak was overcooked and very tough. The two that ordered Shrimp and grits dish did not like it.

My husband and I had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner at 20 Brix. The services was excellent and the food delicious. The wait staff explained the specials in great detail and timed the meal out perfectly from appetizers and drinks, to the main course, to the coffee and desserts. I had the tuna special - it melted in my mouth and was delicious. The desserts were divine - we shared three different ones! As this was a special occasion, 20 Brix gave us complementary glasses of Prosecco - excellent touch! We highly recommend and will certainly be back again. This was our second time celebrating our Valentines Day here and it didn't disappoint. Thank you 20 Brix for your excellent service and delicious food.

AMAZING FOOD! Chef Paul deserves all the awards that he has won. Their standard menu is a masterpiece and his specials are to die for. If they have a special, we always do that. Sometimes we aren't sure when they describe it how some of those flavors will go together but it is always mind blowing.

AMAZING SERVICE! This particular reservation was my wife's birthday. They made her a personalized menu with her name on it wishing her a happy birthday. She felt so special!

This is my go to Date night and the restaurant I hold all other restaurants up to in comparison...and most of the time I say...this is good but not as good as Paul's. :)
