Brickworks American Bistro + Pizza
What makes a great pizza? It starts with a great oven! Ours is an authentic wood- fired masonry oven where the fire has burned constantly since the day we opened. Modern gas and electric ovens cannot produce the intense heat needed - over 700 degrees - to achieve the crispy, smoky crust that our oven provides. With dough made fresh daily in-house, our goal is to make the best pizza in the desert!
In the mood for something a little fancier? Our famous sliders, pan-seared atlantic salmon, 16 oz grilled Rib Eye steak or brickworks fish + chips? Our chef's dishes are simply and classically prepared! You’ll find our appetizers and entrees well seasoned & hearty, never bland. The challenge? Build an interesting restaurant in an expansive second floor space that includes outdoor seating in historic Downtown Palm Springs! The brickworks experience takes place in an engaging atmosphere designed & custom-built.
Our waitress/bartender was great however they kitchen messed up a bit on two of your orders. I assume they were not looking carefully at the order. The great waitress resolved the issue
We went there based on the Open Table menu which is entirely wrong. Happy Hour is not until 630, drinks and appies are not $5... completely misleading. This is disrespectful of your customers and so we don’t return.
Wonder why it was empty. Food was good. Interesting to serve calamari with an Asian sauce and an Italian sauce. Love the idea
Overall good dinner, but the chicken bbq pizza was very dry. Loved the outdoor atmosphere.
Excellent service. Food was good, not great.
Service was great, food was from a microwave at best.
I don't usually give poor reviews to restaurants I pick and have been to before but the Brickworks needs to improve its service. From the moment we got there to the time that we left, the service with the hostess and server were poor. Everyone behind the scenes was awesome! The people who brought our food, water, and anything extra were on top of their service, the rest of the crew needs improvement.
We had a reservation and she wouldn't seat us until our time, even though there were plenty of tables in the restaurant. The hostess asked us to follow her and so we did and she led us to another table where she sat someone else. We asked the hostess if we could sit in the section she led us to and she said no, it was reserved for the next 15 minute seating. Again, plenty of tables! Our server was slow and didn't check back on us when we got our food. One of the people in our party asked for ranch, never got it, and so we had to ask one of the side servers for it. We had to ask for our server to bring us our bill. She didn't so another person had to bring it to us.
If a restaurant is going to make it in Palm Springs they need to have exceptional service and excellent food. The food at Brickworks was great but because of the service, I would not go there again. This is the second time visiting this restaurant and there are a lot more options in Palm Springs than going to this one.
Overall it was good. It was very busy and the restaurant was understaffed, but our server did the best she could.
The fig pizza was amazing. Service was great and the Brixx salad was split in two without asking
Pretty much a family joint on the PS strip. Great service and food just ok.
The pizza was good and the service was nice, though not very attentive, particularly for not being busy.
We have been going to this restaurant since it opened many years ago as Matchbox Pizza. The tradition of great food at a good price, and a nice location overlooking the beginning of the Palm Springs Village with both outdoor and indoor seating has been preserved with Brickworks American Bistro. You will not be disappointed!
Salads are ample and tasty. Service is attentive. There is good craft beer selection. My wife and I would have preferred a crispier crust on our pizzas.
We have gone to Brickworks and formerly Matchbox every Christmas Eve for years. It has never disappointed. Last Tuesday was no exception. Best part was our server...humorous and efficient.
For a restaurant that was mostly empty, the service left a lot to be desired. Sat for 10 minutes before someone showed up, who said "no one told me you were here". Hmm. Very good wings, ok pizza.
Best Pizza in town.
Service was just ok, the server was not especially familiar with the food or drink offerings. Food was fine, but not distinctive. Atmosphere was fairly basic, not special at all. This restaurant may be fine if you just need to grab a bite, but not anything particularly notable. We likely won’t be back; there are so many better options in Palm Springs.
Had great service in the bar area thank you Desiree
Easy menu to just pick fun food
Love the atmosphere. It’s is great to set on the balcony and enjoy the festivities of Palm Springs. The pizza is delicious
Fantastic deep dish pizza is very tasty. Highly recommend the four cheese or pepperoni flavors. Good cocktails. Not inexpensive but worth it!
Just ok - bar ran out of ingredients for margaritas which is pretty sad considering it was Friday night and they were grossly ill prepared
We go to Brickworks’s every week! It’s our favorite restaurant!
Attentive waitress and as usual, great food quality. Best chicken sandwich in the Coachella valley!
Pizza are the worse i have been eating in my life.
Pizza are dry and arrived almost old because the guy has been transmitting wrong information to the kitchen, do waiter was arguing with kitchen, very professional.
We've been here in years past, several times, when we vacation in Palm Springs. The food is decent, but it's the upstairs porch overlooking Palm Canyon that makes this place a good choice.
The pizza was not good. Lacked flavor, over cooked, not good. We looked forward to the brick oven style pizza but were severely disappointed. I had the pesto chicken and my wife had the tomato basil.
Wonderful service and location! Loved the Pear Salad, it was the bomb!!!!
Good food and great service!
Good pizza, great Caesar salad - just needed a little more AC
The food is always good here, unfortunately the service is always so so slow,
I feel they need more servers on for the weekends than they usually have.
The food was great but it was a bad experience. There was a dog under a table next to us that would not stop barking. We were never asked if we wanted to be moved. When I finally asked about the barking I was told “a dog is going to bark” I replied this was a restaurant. At one point the dog came at the server and the other workers. I understand being pet friendly but this was a bit much.
Please do not go to this establishment.
The food was tasteless.
The pizza seemed like it was previously frozen . It has zero taste.
We also ordered a 14 dollar salad that looked and tasted like it came out of a bag.
The kids grilled cheese for 8 dollars was HALF a sandwich (did not say that on menu) for 12 and under. What kid can’t eat a whole sandwich!
ALL of the food took 20 minutes to arrive and then it arrived cold.
The server disappeared and we were literally standing at our table trying to signal anyone for our check.
We all left hungry and disappointed to pay 45.00 for 3 people for food that should have been thrown in the garbage.
This is the first review I have ever left anywhere but felt so strongly that it needs to be put out to the public.
Over all great experience! Incredible location and views, great food and good staff! We will be back!
Good Pizza. Ambience could be updated.
Too pricey for what you get. Disappointed. Service was good though.
Always consistent. One of my favorites.
We enjoy the pizza still, but found it not quite as good as in the past. The service was excellent, however, and we had a nice evening!
We had a good server but the food quality was low and the drinks were not made well. We were also sat in a room that was very noisy with a large party. Would not go back or recommend.
The food and ambiance were great! Our sever Desiree was a sweetheart and made sure that all was taken care of for us. The happy hour menu is also really good! I suggest trying the pizza bread!
Amazing food! Loved th balcony tables. Perfect date night dinner.
