Brick Lane Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Saturday night dinner with friends for a party of 5. Two din ers ordered the hangar steak with mashed potatoes and spinach. Both the potatoes and spinach were cold. Wait staff shared that the beef dinners were prepared first while the salmon scallops didn't take as much time. Wait staff did offer a complimentary shot.
The service was horrible. Our waiter didn’t seem very interested in waiting on us. He actually went to the table next to us 4 different times before even checking on us. The food was decent but nothing spectacular, and definitely not worth the abysmal service. Bartender seemed welcoming when we first entered. Atmosphere was nice.
Food was decent but service was terrible. We were seated upstairs and our waiter neglected to come and check on us. When he actually did come by he smelled like a cloud of smoke. The restaurant was fairly empty except for a few locals. Weird vibe in general. Would not recommend.
Patrick was an absolutely amazing server. He was so friendly and helpful. He made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. I had the coconut shrimp salad which was delicious and we started with the hummus and the spinach and artichoke dip, really yummy. Everyone was happy with their meals and the casual atmosphere, but the service was the best. Definitely going back again and asking for Patrick.
We had a party of 8 and everyone loved the food. We had salmon, scallops, lamb shank...all were great! Someone ordered a watermelon salad to die for. When the staff found out we were celebrating my husbands birthday and my sons wedding this weekend they brought us complimentary desserts and a lovely bottle of champagne! I highly recommend this restaurant...we come to D.C. often and will definitely eat here again!
I showed up right on time for my reservation. As I was opening the door to the restaurant, a waiter was about to walk out with a full tray of drinks. I held the door for him and he didn't acknowledge me. I walked in and there was no hostess space or information as to where to go. The bartender was trying to make drinks and ignored me. The waiter came back in, was clearly frustrated but still ignored me. He went in and out twice with no acknowledgement. Finally, someone who may have been the manager told him I looked like I needed help. He came over and sat me outside at a table without chairs even though tables with chairs were available. I pulled over my own chair and he left me with menus. The drink menu was just a folder and was missing the menu. The waiter did not ask or bring water. He just walked away. After sitting for five minutes a new waiter brought out waters but by that point my friend arrived and we left. This is the worst first impression I've ever had at any restaurant. I've waited tables and the waiter was running around but that doesn't mean you stop being friendly, stop communicating, or ignore customers. I doubt I will ever give it a second chance.
Brick Lane has nice menu with a wide price range (good for a group of friends). The staff was friendly, but the service was slow (waiter did say it was only his 2nd day). Food was good. Noise level nice so you could actually talk. The outdoor seating is a plus
Brick Lane afforded us THE worst dining experience in years. The wait staff knew nothing about the food or the wine. They didn't know which utensils to bring with which foods either. I had the misfortune of ordering mussels. When they arrived in a dish, I was concerned. They were all the size of my open hand. The meat of the mussel was about the size of an Oreo cookie. There is a reason you don't eat mature mussels. You're not supposed to have to cut them in half or be able to identify the internal organs. I sent them back. At first, I got an apology: "they were the only ones available at the market." Then the guy came back with another explanation: "it's became they are from Maine." Please. I'm not new to food. Thats absurd. I ordered something else, which was simply not very good, and by the time it arrived, my husbands meal was finished. Did they comp my food? No. The ladies at the next table were having a similar experience and soon, the poor service and food was the subject of a lot of cross-table joking around. We won't return.
Besides the delicious food, the service really stood out to me. I really wish more places delivered great service like this. Omar was our server and he helped us choose our meals. We are outside until it started raining, and they did a great job with that transition. Highly recommend.
We really like this restaurant. Lively enough for a night out, but quiet enough for a conversation. To the point wine list with eclectic range of suitable choices; mouth-warming paella and flavorful seared sea bass. Attentive, knowledgeable wait-staff. A welcome addition to 17th St!
We sat in a small room upstairs to get away from the very noisy bar. This was good for conversation but the only window looked out on what was kind of an airshaft and mechanicals set up, pretty dirty and hideous, and once there were others up there, it got kind of noisy anyway just cuz it was so small. We both ordered the special, and the pork was visibly overcooked and extremely dry with a fairly uninspired sauce trying to cover it up. Neither of us quite finished what we were served. The dinner was not expensive but even at that it was not worth the money. So sorry - I do not give bad reviews very often, but I would not recommend this restaurant.
I met with 2 friends for dinner and drinks prior to a show at Lincoln Theater on a Friday night. We sat inside but the outdoor seating was adorable with string lights overhead. The menu had good options and was very reasonably priced. The drinks were normal DC price for a cocktail (about $10) but they were strong and delicious. I will bringing my husband back for a date night and definitely will come back in warmer weather to sit outside.
Had a very good meal. I got a Classic Cheese Burger, well done as requested. My girlfriend got a Watermelon Salas and Seared Diver Scallops. We had several glasses of wine and two cocktails. Service -- possibly by "Cashier: Daniel J" was very friendly and helpful.
We will return to Brick Lane.
