Brix Tavern Ratings and Reviews
My boyfriend and I made reservations here for Valentine’s Day and chose the 4 course ? Valentine’s Day menu which included a starter, soup/salad, entree, and the dessert bar. The fondue appetizer was fabulous, however the lobster bisque was not that great. It tastes like a bowl of warm heavy whipping cream with a few drops of lobster flavoring. I got the 12 oz steak as my entree and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had at a restaurant, highly recommend! Lastly, the dessert bar was just okay. They had toffee Ana chocolate sauce for dipping strawberries and cream puffs into and then they had bite size banana cream pies and key lime pies which both tasted pretty bland. Overall we had a great experience and most of our food was amazing!
We enjoyed Brix for Sunday Brunch with friends. Nothing says "special get together" like bottomless mimosas and housemade doughnuts still warm from the kitchen! The helpings are pretty generous, so you will likely have enough to bring home for another meal. I enjoyed the crab omelette (a favorite) but the hashbrowns were a bit saltier than usual. The service was friendly and prompt and the vibe is fun and friendly. You really need reservations unless you don't mind a long wait. Thank goodness for Open Table!
Fantastic service, surprised by great Happy Hour menu including beer and drink specials and delicious Calazone, daily specials were all good - had prawn and pacific crab cake sandwich which was delicious. Service for 6 was fast. Looking forward to returning soon.
Upon sitting down we were told who our server was and immediately the server came over and asked if we were ready to order. We said no but water would be great. She said okay and left. She came back another time and asked if we were ready to order. We informed her not quite yet but then proceeded to order two drinks while myself and my girlfriend said still just water. She said of course and then left again. She came back with the two drinks for the table and still no water and then proceeded to ask our orders. We ordered our food and said water still would be nice. She said okay then left, we waited for about twenty minutes and then our food arrived. Still no water, and at this point we asked the women who brought our food for water and she said wait you don’t have water. She left and I believe the manager came up and asked if we got water. We said no we asked four times for water. She ran and grabbed a pitcher and we finally got water. Then after that the waiter checked up on us five times in a matter of ten minutes. To us it was a little to late to try and be attentive. I just had my girlfriend and her husband up from California and it was a let down to have such poor service after we talked this place up about how amazing your food and service is.
Huge let down.
Reservation was for noon, but we were not sat until 12:15pm. We arrived early, so a lot of standing around and waiting in a cramped space. I ordered the chicken and waffles, but was brought the chicken and eggs. I let the sever know and asked if I could get the waffle I ordered. I was charged not only for my entree, but also the waffle. Basically over $20 for a single breakfast entree. Also the brown gravy on the chicken was not appetizing. I was very let down and disappointed by the experience.
Brunch in Portland is always busy, so getting into places can be difficult. I loved that Brix Tavern took reservations. The food was also unique & delicious. If you like mimosas, they are one of the few spots that serve them bottomless. The only catch is that you have to still be eating. Overall, great experience!
Another consistent meal— consistently good. Nice evening out with my husband. He loved his French dip sandwich and I loved the BBQ , bacon and blue cheese salad. My cocktail was a Manhattan made with locally produced rye and Italian cherry— exquisite! Bar is well-stocked and beer offerings aplenty.
I've been going to Brix for a number of years, and have generally had good experiences. Unfortunately, New Years Eve was not one of them. I was not expecting a special fixed price, four-course meal--The voicemail I received in advanced mentioned that it would be available, but did not say it was the only option. Further, the lobster linguini had way too much sauce and the half chicken was undercooked. The wait staff was accommodating with a slight reduction of our bill, but I still feel I paid too much for what I got. I will likely return sometime in the future, but Brix is no longer on my top 10 list.
Booking this through OpenTable - the price fix menu was not communicated. We were taken aback upon sitting down and presented with a $65 per person menu, no alacarte option. $65 was really steep for what we were served. No wonder it was so easy to get a reservation last minute. We were surprised how many tables were empty on New Year's Eve. And with my selection within the 4 categories, I actually left hungry. Others in my party were full, it was just my combination of courses, the beet salad, for example, was really skimpy. The consolation is that the food was really good. I've dined at Brix several times and the food does not disappoint. It was just the price of the fixed menu that, were it not New Year's Eve, we would have left.
We were seated on time for our brunch reservation, but it was 15 minutes before we got drinks, and only then because my husband went up to a server to inquire about it. The server he asked said she wasn't our server, but she'd put in our drink order and let our server know. Drinks then took a long time to get to us, and weren't complicated drinks (black coffee, a mimosa, and a cocktail), so not sure what the delay was. Our server apologized for the delay when she took our food order. When our food arrived, my benedict was cold, but I feel guilty sending food back so I just dealt with it. My husband said his was warm, but not hot, and our friends we were with didn't say anything about their food, but we didn't ask. It was overall an underwhelming experience compared to previous visits where the service has been good and the food hot.
