We have never had a more unpleasant dining experience all caused by a table of loud foul mouthed folks right next to us. Our waiter asked them to quiet down as did the manager (I think). All to no avail. This kept up our entire dining time. Short of calling the cops I don’t think management had any options beyond maybe trying to ask them to leave. That in itself could have had ramifications in this crazy world where everyone seems to think their rights supersede all others. We won’t be back that’s for sure . Perhaps the manger could have “comped” something on the bill or in some way made us feel heard.

Food was very good. Something as simple as a spinach salad ws perfect. Prices a bit high. Charge for bread. Very noisy for such a smaller size space.

We really enjoyed the “foodie” menu choices! Everything was delicious. Can’t wait to go back. I do wish they had a few more gluten free options (adding gluten free ciabatta to their freezer would allow patrons to have most of their sandwiches!!)

Great ambiance and service in old Milford. Menu descriptions were impressive sounding, but didn't deliver in reality. We had special sesame crusted Ahi Tuna on some exotic sounding slaw; got a beautiful plate of said Tuna, but with no seasoning, atop salad greens and veggies with some dressing. So bland I couldn't bring myself to smile and say it was fine, but our server responded graciously by bringing a seafood crema, which went nicely and slightly redeemed the dish. Our entre dish of crab cakes, (two...we wondered if the appetizer portion was one..?) was accompanied by a scant amount of rice and almost swimming in liquidy sauce. Dessert of lemon-berry marscapone was divine, though. All in all, very pricey for a menu that sounds more impressive than it tasted.

This is one of my favorite places. The food is always fresh and creative. Even the standbys
(fried chicken) are changed up from time to time to keep the presentation and tastes interesting. Overall a great place.

We have been a long-time fan of 20 Brix. But this last visit was really poor. The waiter was not very attentive and the food missed the mark.

20 Brix is one of my favorite spots to meet friends for lunch or dinner. We always enjoy the outdoor seating and the wine/cocktail list gives some nice choices. For this lunch, I enjoyed the grilled cheese and tomato soup, which is always delicious and well-prepared. Our server, Courtney, took excellent care of us and the bartender was attentive. Thanks to 20 Brix for continuing to provide an excellent dining experience.

Worst meal in a very long time. Three entrees— all overcooked and under flavored. Scallops— rubbery. Gnocchi— mushy. Short ribs— dry and tasteless. Service was fine, but chef— not so much

We had the mushroom bruschetta, ceviche, mixed greens, warm spinach salad, short-ribs risotto, and shrimp & grits, plus a malbec, gewurtz and port to drink. The wines were excellent. The appetizers and salads were wonderful. The main courses were tasty if not exactly what was expected. The rice in the risotto was so creamy it was more of a paste. The shrimp & grits had (in addition to the grits) whole kernels of corn-- not bad but certainly unusual. It was also the cool side. Our server was excellent. She offered to re-heat the shrimp and grits for me but I declined. The interior was laid out with lots of space and the servers always wore masks, so we felt safe to dine inside.

We had an excellent meal, with great service, at a reasonable price. The only downside would be that, like a number of restaurants these days, is that the background music on the outdoor patio was too loud, although not so much as to distract very much from an excellent meal.

The food is good but not as good as it used to be. I ordered the steak which I’ve had multiple times and it just wasn’t as good. It wasn’t very hot and definitely didn’t have the same flavor as before.
