About

Brick Oven of Morristown is a popular Italian restaurant serving authentic favorites. A large open fire brick oven stands in the middle of the kitchen, in the view of guests, which is what has given the restaurant its name. Guests eating on the outdoor patio can enjoy a quiet city view and atmosphere while they dine. Brick Oven's dining room is made up of hardwood and stone, with beautiful Italian décor all around the walls.

The cuisine offered on Brick Oven's menu consists of classic Italian favorites like pastas, pizza, gnocchi, meatballs and salads. Pizza is the most popular dish and guests can choose from a variety of specialty pizzas including Margherita, Buffalo chicken and Siciliana. Homemade pasta dishes are also popular, with delicious sauces made in-house each day.

I loved the relax atmosphere of the place. The shrimp arriabiatta was plentiful and the salads were a nice size as well. Waitress seemed a little bothered to have to serve us & it was not very busy the night we dined there. I would go back hoping that we have a different waitress & have more attentive service!

Always packed because of proximity to Mayo theater. But always good food. Sometimes service gets spotty because they are so packed. The DO really need to take a table or two out. The tables are so squeezed in that it's hard to walk to your seat.

Brick oven was a very convenient place to eat as we were going next door to the MAYO performing Arts center to see a concert. The food was ok but the service was not very good. Prices were fair so it was an OK dinner!

Waited forever get noticed at our table. Couldn't even find our waiter (thank goodness for a heads-up bus noy!) Took forever to get our drinks. After waiting for 45 minutes from ordering a pizza, we left $ for the iced teas and walked out.

I've seen this place full so often I finally gave it a try. It was not a good experience. I waited 10 minutes to be waited on, even though I was one one of three groups in the restaurant. They play loud and awful music. The food was tasteless, lamb with pasta. There must be an appeal to many, judging from its popularity. But this not a place for people serious about food and ambience.

Excellent service, Maitre'd was kind enough to provide his own quarters for our parking meter. The food at this BYOB was tasty, service prompt while not rushing us along.

Beautiful night in Morristown. We sat outside. I went inside first to announce we were here via Opentable. Waiter very attentive but a bit sweaty…working hard I presume. You can skip the stuffed pepper(1) app. There was only 1, it was not hot and it was not that interesting or tasty. It WAS $13. Did I say 1 red bell pepper. My wife had some forgettable, possibly warm pasta and shrimp. Yeh! I had French cut chicken which was ok. Not hot but warm enough to not complain. Bottom line we should have had the pizza. I had to ask 2 people to get my Opentable points.
Honestly the best part was sitting outside in setting sun drinking the beers we brought. Everyone was very nice but I went for a good meal. No reason for us to go back.

We went there with another couple for dinner before a show at the Morristown Performing Arts center and needed something in walking distance. This is my second time there and I loved the ambience and the hustle and bustle of the place. The food was consistently great at this place and we ordered salads and they were large and the sea bass special was perfect portion and fantastic. The server was excellent and she has served us both times we have been there and she was excellent. Will definitely go back.

The Hostess was rude an incompetent. When we asked if we could sit at an open table in the front because the back is pretty noisy and cramped, she told us it was for customers with a reservation. When we showed her in the book that we had a reservation she acknowleged it, but when we asked again about the table, she said it was for customers with a reservation, bizzare! She gave us a table in the back and left the menu folders, but unfortumnately there were no menus inside. The waiter appologized and he was great and the food was very good. We go there at least once a month and this was not typical service. The table we asked about was still empty when we were leaving.

Perfect spot if you're going to the theater as it is right next door. Sat outside on a nice night. Food was good. No complaints. I had the Chicken Balsamico and liked it. Service also good for a busy night. BYOB. And a public parking lot right next door.

we were not happy with the table we were seated at. I would NOT sit there again. We were constantly getting hit by the servers walking by as were were in front of the brick oven. The noise level was extremely loud and made it very difficult to talk. I would not reserve a table there again unless I knew we would be in the back away from the front area. This was our 2nd time here and for some reason we were in the same section both times, but the first time we were a table in from there.

I’ve been to Brick Oven a couple of times both with large and small groups. Oddly the experience with a large group was 100 times better than with a small one. The food was great the first time and the server was attentive but most recently I went and it took an hour for salad. We were convinced our server forgot to put in our order completely because other people around us came and left. There were screaming kids running around playing and the group seemed to be friends with the manager so nothing was said. Was very disappointed and debate going back. Food is good though, but some things weren’t the same the last time I went- just not sure if its worth it if the dining experience isn’t consistent.

The Brick Oven is located next to the Community Theater in Morristown. Had dinner before show the meal was excellent. I think a pre fix dinner would be nice for show goers.

We got reservations for 5 Mother's Day evening. I thought we'd have to dine indoors because they don't take reservations for outdoor tables. We were lucky and got an outdoor table (the weather was great that day). Calamari was great. Beet salad with goat cheese was also very good. Everyone had a good meal. The only, less then great, dish was my salmon. I thought it was grilled or seared, it seemed to have a coating on it and was greasy. I would have preferred a "healthier" grilled salmon but I may not have read the item well and missed something. We will definitely go back and recommend the restaurant. We also want to try their sister restaurant next door, Havana Koi.

Known for having "Brick-Oven" Pizza, but the pizza fell flat. It was too dry and the "Margarita pizza" is not traditional style. Service was good and we were seated right away, even though we were 30 min early for our reservation.

We went with the family to Brick Oven for Mother's Day lunch. Since it was a beautiful day we took advantage of the outdoor seating. There is not a view (it's right on South St) but lovely for sitting out, enjoying a glass of wine (BYO) and people watching. The service was a bit slow, but to be fair it was very busy, and some of our group was late. The servers were pleasant and tried hard. The owner greeted us personally with a flower for the Mom- very friendly and nice touch! The food is always good, pretty basic Italian reasonably priced. This was not our first visit to this restaurant,handy before attending a performance at the Mayo Center next door- serve a very good meal and get us out in time. Overall, a tasty and reliable restaurant!

I joined friends here after work. Morristown was buzzing and had nice weather. I received prompt service and the staff was friendly and attentive. Parking was a challenge. We ordered calamari and broccoli rabe with sausage.We then had a margarita pizza, Shrimp Alfredo which was not on the menu but accommodated,eggplant dish and a bolognese pasta. Everything was great except the pizza, to my surprise. I was expecting a real "brick oven" pie. It was nothing more then what seemed to be a pita like dough with a lot of white cheese ,two slivers of basil and diced tomatoes thrown on top. I was expecting more of a Brooklyn or Naples type margarita pie.Not even close . I will not go back for pizza but will go back for Broccoli Rabe.
