Had a table ready for us for our reserved time. The waitress was very polite and food timing was perfect. Great ambiance and had a great time. Definitely will make a trip back soon

The menu is extensive yet it doesn't feel like a jumble of random items. The entrees (salmon and scallops) were perfectly done and wonderful. The wine list is great, and the suggested wine was perfect for what we ordered. The brie appetizer with cranberry reduction and pear slice was outstanding. The service was flawless. The atmosphere is fantastic and it the noise level was very low - it was very easy to hold a conversation.

Excellent food and service. I had the chicken piccata, which was perfectly cooked and had a very tasty sauce. Our server, Ben, provided great service, and the restaurant layout and décor was very nice (we ate dinner there). Good selection of wines.

This place rocks - always great food and atmosphere. You can’t go wrong just going off the daily specials and leaving the menu behind!

Food was fabulous! We had a newer waiter so service could have been a little better but by no means bad. Will definitely be going back! Great find!

Very pleasantly surprised on the first visit to this restaurant, which was previously unknown to me. The interior is attractive and welcoming; the food was beautifully presented and excellent (my guest and I both chose salads, with a resigned nod toward making healthy post-holiday choices), and the check was certainly not unreasonable, although the price was possibly just a little higher than might be the case at competing enterprises.

I will definitely try BRX American Bistro for dinner and/or brunch sometime soon, just to get a sense of its approach to food other than salads ... although certainly my own salad was far tastier than anyone has a right to expect from kale, quinoa, squash, and chickpeas. (Very nice job, and thank you, Chef.)

Always an amazing meal with fantastic ambiance. This was a New Year’s Eve party and the menu was great with a notable wine selection.

9 for brunch, we were the only people in the restaurant for the first 30 minutes. 6 people had their orders brought out, a seventh arrived wrong, the eight 5 minutes later, and the last 2 orders (one that was originally wrong) took and additional almost 10 minutes. The food was all good, but it was really unfortunate that most at the table had almost finished eating by the time the last 2 were served. No apologies or anything removed from the bill (a number of extra mimosas were ordered while waiting for orders). Only two other tables were dining when we left.

Weird place. Friendly but really uneven service. Shoehorned our party of five into a bar booth (with somebody having to sit in a high boy bar chair near the kitchen entrance) even though we had an advance reservation. Literally wiped dust off a drink menu and handed it to us. Specials listed as one thing but came out as something else. Food was marginal at best. Will not return.

We arrived to a noisy crowded reception in the main dining room and were ushered to a confined area behind a curtain. We were entertaining out-of-town guests but could hardly hear each other talk. Very bad environment in which to dine. The manager offered us free drinks. Nice, but will be careful in the future when we dine there.
