We were seated at the Chef's table and were brought a complimentary glass of Prosecco.
The reason it is called the Chef's table is because it is right next to the kitchen where the orders are picked up. That was not a problem for us as we like the activity.
I forget the name of our waiter but he was great. We told him we wanted to take our time and enjoy the evening and he was very accommodating.
Try the Farmers salad before your meal. it was tasty.
I had the Monkfish and tasted some of the other dinners like gnocchi and shrimp and grits.
All were fantastic!

The wine list at 20 Brix is always fun and fantastic, but the food made our visit fantastic! We really enjoyed the brussel sprouts, the scallops (!) and the seafood entree. Will definitely go back!

We are frequent patrons of 20 Brix. Last visit was disappointing. The lamb special was gross fatty. Staff indicated this was “the cut” . A heads up would have been appropriate.

We also feel the wine prices keep creeping up.....$15 for a 5 oz pour of a middle of the road wine?

We will try again as this has been a favorite for a long time. Maybe it was an off night. We suggest owners review wine pricing.

My daughter arrived for an early lunch with reservations for 2. Didn't really need the reservations. The place was almost empty. We ordered their "Figgy Piggy" sandwich and asked for the ham on the sandwich to be warmed and not cold. We also ordered the appetizer plate. The sandwich which had fig sauce on it was burned onto the ham so it had no taste whatsoever. The appetizer plate looked and tasted like last nights left overs. The only thing good was the wine, but then we ordered that by the bottled. No chance of a mess up there. Too expensive by far, and even if the prices were lower the food would still be awful!

Very nice for location, so would definitely recommend. Nice wine list. Attractive dish presentation and novel menu. Wait staff very friendly but not as organized/attentive as would have expected (ie, bringing next course out before prior course of dishes collected and trying to fit all onto table). I look forward to going again.

Although the windows along the side of the restaurant are attractive, the a/c and heating vents are positioned above and blow air directly on the guests. Do not sit there.

The noise level is a bit high when the restaurant is 50% + occupied, so relaxing conversations can be a challenge.

The food was very good and nicely presented. We will return.

We don’t usually venture over towards Milford, and found this place on open table. Really liked it. Cute little place in “old Milford”, with a bunch of shops around it. Made for a nice date night!

We have been going to 20 Brix the last 11 years and my husband and I loved it since.

But on our past visits, we noticed that the quantity of the food had changed a lot and the price had gone up.

For instance, the salads are great but you don't get as much for the price we pay.

We sat on the patio for a nice evening meal. Glad that it was open as the dining area was quite chilly inside. Started with the Bacon Wrapped Dates, Brussel Sprouts and a wonderful Spanish white wine. Entrée was the Grilled Rockfish with a corn relish and tostones. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection. Our server was very engaging and attentive. Great night out with friends.

Our waiter, Tony, was top-notch, the best we have ever had! Our table out on the sidewalk was fun, but the spiderwebs and bird mess on the window sill right up against the table was kind of rough to handle, especially, for the price of the meal. We did not order any wine, had 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and tea and it was almost $100 with tip. Very pricey for the amount of food and the filth of the table surroundings.

Service was slow. Only 6-7 other tables occupied.
Food was overpriced and portions small. Disappointed for sure. Had heard great things.
Brussels sprouts were really good, but everything after that was not. We weren’t even asked if we wanted anything to drink other than water.

We ate on the patio at dusk, the ambience was perfect. Sat on the patio outside. Quiet crowd, attentive server, leisurely dinner with wine. Followed by a stroll through the downtown area looking in all the interesting shop windows and then a scoop of ice cream. We didn't have time to sit in on the music but that's always a pleasure. Milford is a lovely place to visit - always.
