Brx is a place where you can take your family or meet with your friends for some quality time and good food and drink. We wanted to create an atmosphere where people could gather casually in a sophisticated, yet down to earth locale.

Brx's large dining room and outdoor patio offer a casual and comfortable ambiance to enjoy our American cuisine influenced by your favorite comfort foods. Our casual bar area is the perfect place for a glass of wine from our extensive wine list, or a round of beers with friends.

Brix personnel did a stellar job of dealing with a challenging situation. There was a noisy private party going on at the same time as my reservation. My son and I were seated in a curtained off area and attended to promptly. The owner also gave us our dessert choice, gratis. It made a challenging situation easier to deal with. Thank you, Brix

We love Brx American Bistro. We go there at least once a month, and take all our out-of-town guests there. Great cocktails, excellent wines, superb food, and the prices are very reasonable.

This was a birthday celebration and we decided to try BRX based on the reviews. We both had the blackened fish special which we loved. Five stars for the food, wine, service and atmosphere. I was really impressed and will definitely be back! Can't wait for the weather to warm up so we can sit outside on the patio.

I took my wife there for her birthday and we had a fabulous time. From the minute we arrived the staff was attentive but not overbearing and the food was outstanding. The fact that the dining area is separate from the bar and the bar is glass enclosed made the noise level well within acceptable levels. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.

WOW! Chef Owner Ashwani Ahluwalia knows how to create the perfect combination of an eclectic menu of delicious food for everyone, warm ambiance and superior service. Then wrap all of that in a wine theme that is like a trip to Napa. What's not to like? Hands down one of the top restaurants in NOVA. That is no exaggeration. Brx is that good.

I met a friend for lunch. We hadn’t seen each other in quite some time and ended up spending over 3 hours at the table. (uncrowded time of day). The food was delicious and the waiter didn’t hurry us in any way. Very pleasant and pretty place- I’ll go back for dinner!!

Nice enough place for a neighborhood eatery. They are proud of their wine list I think, but I thought the wine was priced too high, particularly for a casual place like this. The waiter kept suggesting bottles that were over $50. We went on a Thursday and the place was mostly empty. There are too many items on the menu for this place to do them all well and keep the food fresh. My burger tasted like the patty was frozen It was extremely dense, like it was formed in a machine. The fries were just warm, like they were cooked a while ago, but they tasted OK. If friends wanted to meet there, I wouldn't say no, but I would not chose this place myself.
