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. :)

I thought Milford looked lovely with the little white lights decorating Main Street.

I was interested in the shrimp and grits. My menu said it was served with cooked peaches. My husband's menu said cooked peppers. We asked our server and he went to the kitchen to check. He said it was serve with peach but when my entree arrived, it was cooked green pepper. Not my favorite.

I thought the space had a nice feel. It felt like a neighborhood place. Many folks seems to know each other.

Thankfully the food was delicious as the server we had was awful. He absolutely did not want to be there at all. Had it not been pouring down raining, we most certainly would have left. Disinterested, not knowledgeable or not willing to share, I have never been treated so poorly.

On top of that when we received our bill for 5 people, an automatic 20% gratuity was charge and an itemized bill was not offered.

Very very disappointing

Wonderful flavors in everything. Great service. As a lightweight drinker, I particularly appreciate 2 ounce wine pours as an option so I can have different tastes without having more to drink than I like.

Crab cakes were ordinary. Monkfish too heavily breaded and over-cooked. Salad and dessert choices were uninteresting.

This was a beautiful New Years Eve dinner at a trusted local spot. This time in particular, our service was absolutely stellar! Given that the menu is so unique and can change based on local availability, we had quite a few questions due to preference and some allergies. Our server was overly patient and more than happy to answer our questions and get clarification from the chef on some of the dishes. We were both pleased with our choices and will look forward to the next time.

We love 20 Brix - the food is always top notch, and it feels special without feeling overly fancy. Just our style for a special night out! As usual, the food was amazing - our appetizer (lamb meatballs), entree (scallops) and dessert (lemon marscapone cake) made me close my eyes to taste and enjoy. The servers are excellent, and ambiance is warm and comfortable. Highly recommend!

Perfect location for our Sales Department's holiday celebration. The food was delicious; the service attentive; and the atmosphere inviting. From lamb meatballs to crabcake sliders, everyone had tremendous choices with ample portions. This is a great find in Milford for anyone wishing outstanding food and service.

As usual, 20 Brix is outstanding in every way. The service is very attentive and the food is excellent. My wife really appreciates that there two of the main entrees that are vegetarian--and plenty of sides of course. This is the perfect place for a special night out.

Ambiance is great. Service was very good. Food, for the price was sub par. Sicilian dish was a disgrace to my Italian heritage. Bland with no tomato flavor. Fried chicken had good crunch and texture but the oil in the fryer needs to be changed. Could smell the old oil burn the minute plate hit the table. Our dinner guests acted like it was good and told us so until the wives got together and talked and their food was awful as well. They were just being polite.

Feel like I need to give it another try. Ordered Sicilian Gravy dish...was not impressed. That's sure one expensive bowl of pasta. Did like the wine selection by the glass. It came recommended in a magazine and saw accolades they received in the past...so perhaps another try.

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!

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.
