Chef David Pratt never ceases to amaze us with each season's interpretation of Italian based foods. This time was a perfect bianca pizza with olives and shisheto peppers and crispy prosciutto. Another dish consisted of soft pillows of ricotta and lemon ravioli with a wonderful broth, fava beans, sweet spring peas and perfectly cooked shrimp. This dish screamed springtime!

Great food and service. I recommend this place for a Napoli style pizza in San Clemente.

First time to Brick. Server Amanda was great explaining the menu items and offering suggestions. Homemade sausage is in many dishes and is very good. Had a pasta dish and pizza. More food than we could eat so leftovers for next day. Enjoy!

Our timing was great - the place was empty when we strolled in and filled up over the next half hour. Our service was also great, Amanda was available when we needed her and food came out quickly. Our food was prepared well and I enjoyed the copper and wood decor. The food was okay. We had the roasted cauliflower (which is roasted then battered and fried), the English pizza, and the farmer's pizza. Plenty of food

Great food and service. We have been her a couple times now and the service has always been friendly and informative. The ambiance is great, and the outdoor patio is well lit. The food is excellent- I recommend the seafood ravioli. We love coming here!

Fettuccini Carbonara was very bland. Kick it up a notch, spice or something.

I know we review Brick often but the food is so good we tend to eat there more than anywhere else. Chef David Pratt is just beginning to bring out his new Spring menu. My husband has been begging Chef to bring back a steak and he has! It is grass fed and dry aged 42 days so it is the most tender and flavorful steak we have had in a very long time. I just do not know how he gets it so perfectly medium rare throughout and this was not sous vide. It is done on his wood grill. The potato almost like pancake was the perfect side he prepared with the steak along with the just picked vegetables. Cannot wait to make our way through the rest of the new items!

Brick never disappoints. Steven is a great server. We started with the fried cauliflower a beet salad then the meatballs and a margarita pizza. I finished with a scoop of rocky road gelato. A perfect dinner for both of us.

Love Brick. We eat there too often! It's consistently good. Owner David Pratt won't serve a menu item if he can't source the best quality.

We like to go for lunch, order a share a large beet salad, (the best), and a margarita pizza. The crust is the most delicious in the area. Delicious!

Food was very good as well as the service. Décor was pleasing to the eye. Had reservations thus was seated very quickly. However acoustics are terrible. The noise level was so loud communication between my wife and I was almost impossible. Maybe a good place to go with a group of friend that enjoy shouting, however for a special occasion I would skip this place.

We came here for a casual bite to eat based on other reviews and that they had gluten free options, which is important due to a gluten sensitivity. I've eaten GF at numerous restaurants and have rarely had any bad effects from being "glutened". First off, it was so noisy and loud that we couldn't hear each other let alone our server. We ordered the sausage stuffed fig appetizer which was sooooo sweet it made it hard to choke down. I might add, the table next to us ordered the same app and the sausage came out RARE! Obviously a problem with that appetizer. I got a GF pizza and honest to Pete it was so hard and inedible that I ended up picking the toppings off and that was my dinner. I'm sure if I picked up a slice and threw it at the window it would have have broken the glass. The other "normal" pizza we ordered was burnt, had no flavor and was void of sauce and cheese. Aren't sauce and cheese the main ingredients for a pizza??? Anyway, I'm sure there are better options around. I'd go elsewhere.

We ordered the dates that are stuffed with sausage and when I bit into them I noticed the sausage was raw. I immediately showed the server and he looked appalled and said he would take it off our bill and asked if we wanted another. I get that mistakes can happen but when I later explained to the manager what happened he took my information and said the head chef would call me the next day.....weeks later and still no call. It's said that this establishment cares so little about customer service. I only wanted to explain how sick this could have made my pregnant wife and how they need to be more careful. I felt I owed it to the head chef since we have eaten here over 15 times and before this really enjoyed the food.

First time at Brick. Did not disappoint. A unique creative take on pastas and pizzas. The orecchiette really stood out. Pasta cooked just right.. al dente.. and they did not skimp on the ingredients (delicious homemade sausage, broccoli, mushrooms, pecorino) or saturate with oil and sauce. The stuffed dates appetizer was also savory. The noise level was on the high end but still worth a visit!

Brick Pizzeria was an excellent choice for a birthday celebration for four. We found it to be quiet, authentic, without a TV, interesting to get to share dishes without having to be too selective, and we enjoyed attentive service delivered by Stacy. It had been a long time since we had dined at a place that was just plain fun and relaxed without feeling rushed....and the food was fresh and tasty!

The two pasta dishes we tried were fabulous. The Caesar salad, however, was uninspired. Great, fresh lettuce but very little dressing and virtually no flavor. Disappointing. We will be returning to try the pizzas!
