We had excellent service and an excellent meal. My husband ordered the special steak feature and while amazing, it was VERY expensive. It’s our fault that we did not ask the price. Keep that in mind if ordering some thing not on the menu.

21 Brix has a great “vibe”. Our charcuterie board was delicious and our server described all the components. We ordered the steak and fries to share and the steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned (medium rare). The only part of our meal that wasn’t great was the desert. The crem brûlée was cold and the pumpkin cheesecake tasted a bit bland. I think the hostess should also rethink her wardrobe. She had on summer sandals and a dress that was way too short.

Food was delicious. The only negative was the restaurant was very cold- need to turn up the heat. Definitely get the tomato soup and the mushroom dish. Great wine selection.

Great ambience and excellent service. The appetizers and desserts were good. Unfortunately the entrees were below par for an upscale restaurant. This has been our experience in the past as well.

First off I need to say that I travel a lot for work and entertain clients at restaurants like 20 brix. Over the last 1.5 years of covid and employment struggles, I feel like restaurants have suffered and so has the quality of food / service. This has been disappointing as someone who has to entertain and dine out alot (I know this a serious first-world issue). 20 brix and our waiter Tony were exceptional. The drinks, appetizer, and entrees were a 10/10. This was my first time dining in and I will definitely be coming back.

Good wine list and menu. Service was great, but food was not quite hot. Medium rare was closer to rare than medium so that might be part of the reason.

Our server was Brad and he was outstanding. He recommended an excellent bottle of wine, paced our meal perfectly and was an overall pleasure to talk to. The Winter Squash soup was wonderful and the salmon was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a nice dinner in a pleasant setting.

Cocktails are way too overpriced for what they are. They’re higher priced than most anywhere downtown and they didn’t seem to have many house-made ingredients/ syrups/ etc… kind of crazy being charged $14 for a drink with Makers and Peach Schnapps lol. Lamb meatballs were tasty but also not worth the $15. The steak dish was delicious and worth the $27 for the plate. Ambiance wise, it was a nice little place to eat at - but I feel they priced their menu way to high for the execution/ products.

Nice place overall, ambiance was great for a date night. They seemed short staffed, which is understandable in these times, no issue, we enjoyed a glass of wine as we waited. Menu was super small but we enjoyed our choices. The crab cake was teeny for the price… even though they called it jumbo. Brussels profits were fantastic. I also felt very comfortable, as far as covid protocol. No one was in a mask, but the place is small so it’s not a super crowded place, and the tables were set up well-enough spaced out.

We ate early on a Thursday evening and it was very quiet with only a few tables occupied. in this case I'd say the ambience was perfect. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. The drinks, brought to the table by (I assume) the friendly bartender, were well-made, a decent size, and reasonably priced. The pork chop with nduja sauce was very good, but it could have used more of a side vegetable as opposed to just some shaved fennel. The gnocchi dish was very good. The service
was great.
We have dined here on several occasions and have, in general, had only a good experience. Recommended.

The food is amazing. I highly recommend one of the shared plates to start. The menu is rotated seasonally, but they keep some of the guest favorites year-round with seasonal accompaniments. Service is great and they make you feel like you're part of the family. The staff are always happy to recommend certain dishes and wine pairings.
