    First, the good: beautiful decor, pleasantly buzzy atmosphere, great menu, and visually attractive food. However, three of the four of us found our food merely pretty good. I'd said I'd like my salmon pink in the middle, which the waitress then designated "medium," but it arrived overcooked--don't know if the fault lay with the waitress (in describing it wrong) or the chef (in cooking it wrong). The charcuterie board looked like a grocery store party tray, brimming with oversize cubes of two (not very interesting) cheeses, though the small array of thinly sliced pickled vegetables was a plus. Our waitress was friendly and attentive but neglected to replace utensils that had been removed with earlier courses and also to supply cream and sugar with the coffee, or even to ask if we'd like them. Overall, we felt that Brick and Brine falls short of the high standards of Zazio's and Webster's, its two predecessors in the hotel, and we feel no inclination to return, there being other, better restaurants in town.

    Because we were celebrating our 51st anniversary, Brick And Brine made it special for us by putting flower petals at our table and all the managers signing their name on the back of the menu. At 10 o’clock at night the valet‘s were off duty so the manager went into the garage and brought the car To us. The manager happened to be a lady.

    Menu outstanding! Hostess staff -- even better! Very customer focused and friendly. Our waiter was average at best. He was not rude or anything, he just didn't seem to have a good handle on his job. That either points to poor character or poor training. Despite that, it is definitely a worthwhile experience.

    Great experience, service and food. Except we were seated against the window to what looked like a private party room where kitchen staff was seated stuffing olives. Only suggestion would be to have curtains to draw when utilizing that space for prep work.

    We had been waiting several months to dine here and finally we were able to get an acceptable reservation time. Seating was great for the first portions of our meal and then our “bench” filled up so noise and bodies were a bit too distracting. Our server seemed overwhelmed and too matter of fact, sad, especially since it was our first visit. The food was good, Salad and soup for the first course- nothing exciting.We both had pasta dishes because they had just ran out of the evening seafood special- disappointing. Shrimp Pesto and Braised Lamb, very good tasting.A bit heavy for summer dining but unfortunately the steaks didn’t look like they were worth the price. For dessert we had the pineapple upside down cake and the grasshopper- both were delicious and beautifully plated. We understand fine dining and costly meals but the two should compliment each other and we left the restaurant feeling “one and done “ just wasn’t wowed ☹️

    The restaurant has done an outstanding job transforming the previous Zazios restaurant into a cozy, yet brightly lit, welcoming space. The menu also offers choices of Italian dishes as well as premium steaks. We ordered the duck and the 8oz filet, and both were superbly prepared, making this one of the best meals we’ve had in Kalamazoo. Our server, Whitney, also did an excellent job explaining the menu, pacing our meal service, and making sure we were enjoying our experience. We will definitely return!

    The staff that greeted us were greet. The atmosphere was nice. Our server was ok. She asked if it was our first time dining with them and it was, but we didn’t get any additional information about how the food is prepared or an details about the entrees. We had the scallops and the 14 oz Ribeye. The presentation was beautiful. The scallops were great but the medium rare steak was tough. Hard to cut and chew. Flavor was great. For a $75 steak I would have expected it to melt in your mouth. I told the server and she offered to have another steak prepared but we declined. We were offered a free dessert but weren’t interested. Overall good but not great.

    Our first time there was better. This time our server kept talking to us while we were trying to eat and out of nowhere said “I’m sorry, I’m not trying to be pushy, but it’s my job”. My husband’s mushroom agnolotti entree was ridiculously small, but good. I had lamb ragu and it was good size but barely had any lamb in it. Beef tartare and charcuterie board were both excellent.

    Brick and BrineResponded on July 6, 2022Hi Lena! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We've discussed these notes with our chef as we are always looking for ways to improve. Our goal is always to provide the best meals to our valued guests.
