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!

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.

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.

 (Baltimore)·Dined on July 1, 2014

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.

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.

This was our second visit to the brick oven of Morristown prior to a show at the Mayo center. We had 6 o'clock reservations and were seated promptly. The restaurant, which is fairly small, was crowded but our service was good as was the food. I had a mushroom soup with sausage which was quite tasty and my wife had a large salad for her appetizer. My wife enjoyed her main course which was a variety of seafood and garlic over linguine, while my chicken breast and a port wine reduction sauce over garlic mashed potatoes and with peppers and vegetables was excellent. I asked them to add hot peppers to the dish which they did. . Service is good however at times you have to call for a busboy if you need something when it is as busy as it was.

We were attending an event at the Mayo Theatre so the restaurant location was perfect. WE liked the ambiance and the pizza was great. Coming from a family that has been in the restaurant business, we did not think the service was great. I had to ask 3 times for my water glass to be filled and we had an empty bread basket that the waitress never refilled or asked to refill. It took a long time to place our order and the food was not very hot. With all that said though we did have a good time and would definitely come back. It was a busy night there and we assume that could have been the issue.

Disappointingly average and overpriced. The food was good, but too expensive for what it was. The bread was horrible; dry, flavorless, and uninspired. The place was empty and the waitress spent more time talking to the hostess than waiting on our table. Just an, at best, average place. First and last visit.

Not as good as usual. The meal that I ordered was different than the description of it on the menu, and it was not served on time. I had to track down the waitress to find out where our food was. She was not very attentive. So in conclusion the service was awful and so was the meal.

We have eaten here before only when going to the Mayo Theatre which is right next store.Sadly there seems to have been a decrease in food quality and sevice. The service was chaotic and the food was mediocre. I had an beet salad with feta chese for over 11.00 dollars that had no dressing. No server ever came back to check or bring fresh pepper. I had gnocchi, which was served in a thick white sauce, seemed like wall paper paste?Again no server follow-up. The only thing good was the dessert Tiramisu.The staff was actually running but people around us waited for their food forever. Save your money this is not a fine dining restaurant, which are the prices they charge. Next time we have tickets to Mayo we will eat else where.

We were squeezed at a table for two. Both of our chairs were backed against the tables behind us. The wait staff had to squeeze behind my moms chair and she kept getting hit from behind. We never got our bread until we asked for it after 15 minutes. We never received our bread plates at all (used the cup saucers instead) The appetizer was put down and again we had to ask for plates. The food was good, our waitress was pleasant. Just wished we weren't so squeezed in.

Brick Oven is no longer my favorite go to after subpar food and service twice in a row. Our recent visit the food was way below standard. Angel hair pasta with seafood had small shrimp and scallops which were overcooked. The sauce was gritty from the sand in the clams. Fried calamari arrived with random zucchini fries mixed in. Leftovers from the fryer I would guess. My two children, who ordered spaghetti and meatballs were served adult entrée spaghetti with a side of meatballs, and priced accordingly. My husband ordered salmon which arrived raw in the middle and overdone on the ends. It was ice cold. Service was friendly but extremely slow.

My husband and I had not eaten here in a year or so. We were really looking forward to going back. But unfortunately, it was atrue disappointment. The restaurant crammed so many people in on this Saturday night that people were practically sitting on top of one another. Plus the food was just so so. We might be back for only pizza in the future.

We were going to see Jay Leno last Friday and took a chance on the restaurant, which is next door to the theater. We were late due to rain and a poor navigation system routing and they held reservation willingly even though the restaurant was packed. When we arrived Jen took us under her wing, got us seated and ordered the wine of our choice from a store nearby that delivers to the restaurant, as we did not know they were BYOB. The food was great, but the staff went way above and beyond. We travel and dine out quite a bit and I can assure you this was one of the best dining experiences we have had in years. We would come back often if this restaurant was in our neighborhood and not a two hour drive.

I eat often at this restaruant because I attend performances next door at the Mayo Performing Arts Center. I have never had a bad meal. The food is good, fresh and interesting. My oly complaint is that I ALWAYS ask for a window seat and hve NEVER received one. I am always seated near the food prep area, although this is not necessarily a bad thing. It is interesting to watch the chefs prepare the meals.

The food is fresh, delicious and satisfying and the kitchen really hustles. Great spot to get your pre-theater dinner as it is right next to the Mayo Arts Center. NOTE: They are BYOB and if you are going to a show leave plenty of time for closing out your bill as there will be many other people doing the same thing.
