The spicy featured marguerite needed another 1/2 ounce of tequila. I need to at least taste the tequila to give it a good rating. It was a long time to get the main course. Lots of very hard surfaces make for a very noisy environment. The table was not cleaned after the dishes were removed before dessert. There were no coasters or napkins for the drinks.
My main was the filet and the kale stems were very tough. My partner's Branzino was very good. I was surprised that my beet and burrata salad had no greens at all.

We have been looking forward to trying this location since it first opened. Finally had a date night, and asked friends to join us.
We ended up spending about 4 absolutely delightful hours. Beautiful layout, comfortable seating, extremely helpful and efficient staff, and the food. So good. My husband ordered the crab legs. Melt in our mouth delicious, with brown butter sauce. I wanted to keep stealing tastes. My friend and I both had salmon. Cooked to perfection, with a beautiful sauce. Honestly the best flavor I’ve ever enjoyed. Another friend had the pork porterhouse. Intense cut of meat, and reportedly delicious. The drinks were well poured. Pricey, but no more so than any other upscale restaurant. Perfect date night. Can’t wait for the next one. Brix will be on the top of my list.

Food was very good. Felt like is was in the wrong zip code for being a trendy high end place. Not a quiet coastal harbor town. Staff was friendly and views were great.

Years have passed since our last visit to Brix25. Love the waterfront location. Could be a bit more inviting and warmer/comfortable tables and chairs but good efforts have been made to dampen the volume to make for a quiet conversation. Loved the service. Wait staff was competent with a good knowledge of the menu. Bartender: lose the maraschino cherries in favor of brandy marinated dark cherries for your Manhattans!

Great food, nice ambiance. Staff was friendly. Food had great taste but small portions. With two appetizers, a main dish and dessert we were not full. In fact my husband came home and ate more food. It was still a fun date.

Sorry to say we were disappointed in the overall experience. Despite the waterfront location the place lacked warmth due to its very austere ambiance . The food was ok but found it insulting to charge $3 if you wanted bread with the meal. Especially when ordering mussels

4 of us and everyone but me loved the meal. My wife’s halibut was fabulous. I had a New York steak and it was no better than Outback. Plus the sides were so minuscule, it was almost like it wasn’t there. I also had a soup special that was ok, but cost $11 which I didn’t know until the bill arrived. Certainly not worth it. They also charge $3 for a skimpy loaf of bread. Need another? Then another $3. Nice place and I’d try it again.

The food was excellent as was the wine choice. Despite being very busy once our server was able to get to us the service was very good. The noise level in the restaurant on the main floor was unbearable. I had trouble hearing the person across from me unless she was yelling and visa versa. Most of the noise came from the bar area and was many decibels above what once should have to tolerate in a restaurant. Too bad the bar isn't separate from the main dining room.

3rd time dining here at Brix 25...as usual the meal was nice, well prepared and presented. The location is really nice for Gig Harbor, but not so much as to warrant their main menu pricing...it is a bit on the high side given the location and facility.

However, I'm sure we'll be back again as it's not far from where we live and one of the very few nice restaurants in Gig Harbor where you can actually dress up for dinner!

The fresh halibut was the best I have ever had! We sat outside on the patio which was lovely but patio heaters would have made it even better. Our waiter was outstanding and brought three wines for us to sample because we were having a hard time making up our minds. We will definitely go back!

Always love the champagne once seated. Our Server is topnotch, she is very pleasing . I did not give 5 stars because the octupus appetizer is very dry and over grilled and the carrot cake is not moist at all. But the rest of our food is excellent i.e. halibut appetizer, steak and my favorite mussels entree is always a must!

The service was very good, as was the food. We were greeted with a half a glass of champagne which was nice to sip on after working all day and figuring out what we were going to eat snd drink. The food portions (at least on the items we ordered) were rather small, but tasty!
