Very nice new location, however "Very Loud", not sure if it is all the hard surfaces or the very "energetic foursome" who were extremely loud. The wait staff kept apologizing and 4 other couples asked to be reseated in other areas to avoid the noise they were making. People should be able to enjoy them selves, so hopefully something can be done about the noise.
This was the "soft opening week" so maybe its just trying to figure it out... food was good, and great wine selection. We will be back... hopefully to a quieter table

Brix used to be my favorite restaurant in the Tacoma area. They moved recently and their new location is now a typical overpriced hipster bar. They are no longer white tablecloth... their few tables are cheap and wobbly and very close together. There isn’t anything in the new space to absorb sound, so it’s extremely loud and since the tables are so close together, good luck having a personal conversation. The menu has changed quite a bit, but the prices are still that of a white tablecloth restaurant. Very poor experience 😫

The old place was very good, the new location is a huge upgrade. Updated menue, with great seafood options, looking forward to return visit. We happened to hit Thursday half price wine night, made it all that much better.

Food was excellent but the new restaurant is far too noisy for a high end dining experience. Hopefully sound dampening measures will be undertaken to recapture the ambiance of their former location.

Two of us went to try the Gig Harbor Waterfront Alliance special dinner menu. We enjouyed the glass of complimentary sparkling wine. The bread was too salty and had some kind of hot pepper on the top, and both of the butters were hot / spicy. The Dinner 1: cambozola with pear chutney on toast was tasty, and the spicy Thai mussels were plentiful and very good as well. Dinner 2: not a special. ut regular entree garlic tiger prawns were very garlicky and a little spicy, good polenta underneath, and plain corn succotash was good. The vanilla gelato scoops were much needed after all the unexpectedly seasoned food. All that siad, the ambiance is lovely, and the service is impeccable.

We sat in the lounge. The complimentary glass of champagne to start the night is a very nice touch. My wife is not a cocktail drinker but heard that all of the cocktails here are great. She had 2 different cocktails and loved them both! I am a beer drinker and although their selection was small, they had Aslam's pale which is a fantastic beer so I was happy. Service was great - timely but not overbearing.

The big downer was that I ordered the NY strip. It was cooked fine but hardly any seasoning to it. I'm looking for a nice crust of salt and pepper on my steak but there was none. My wife had a bite of my steak and instantly responded that I cook a better steak. Not what you want for $33.

We'll be back but I will be having something other than steak.

Took my parents and a dear friend for a birthday dinner! We were all thrilled with dishes we selected! The blue cheese wedge salad and the Brix Signature Boeuf Bourguignon. We were greated with lovely white linens and a glass of champagne!

We were in Gig Harbor at an AirBnB for a couple of nights and Brix 25 seemed to be the obvious choice (based on reviews and recommendations) for a nice dinner. It definitely lived up to expectations. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco (as is everyone of age, one assumes), which was a great touch. Service was very attentive and prompt. Food was delicious, fresh, regionally inspired, and sensibly proportioned. The totally tubular (in the shape sense, though in the beach-guy sense too) chocolate creme brulee was fantastic. Actually, I think it was technically a truncated cylindrical solid, but tubular worked better for the previous sentence. Also, if you're in Gig Harbor in the morning, go to Brix' sister restaurant Netshed No. 9 for a great breakfast.

We really like Brix 25. We've been customers since they opened. Love the complimentary glass of champagne on every single visit, it's a nice touch no one else does. We ate there last Friday night. The food was exceptional (we had the pork and filet mignon). The service was impeccable! The only thing we would suggest, (even though the menu is great) would be for those of us who are regulars, to change up the menu. Maybe some fresh fish once in a while or a staple pasta on the menu...otherwise, we'll be back again, and again, and again....

Friday evening seating at 5:00pm. We were seated promptly as only three other tables were being used at the time. They bring every diner a complementary flute of champagne to start off your meal. Our waitress was very friendly and offered good suggestions. I started with my favorite spicy margarita, the Smokin' Sweet Rita. Delicious! I order the Beef Bourg... (a specialty here) and my wife ordered the lobster ravioli. The beef bourg. was so tender and the sauce was magnificent. The my wife loved the lobster ravioli, she wished there were more of them but it was only offered as an appetizer. The waitress said the restaurant would be moving in a couple weeks to a waterfront location. Then they'll have a view to go with their amazing food. Perfect!

Service impeccable, but disappointed that with so many open tables we were sat next to a group which was noisy, and talking at a level at which we should have asked to be reseated. Particularly considering the meal cost and expectations of an upscale establishment. Presentation was excellent, and cocktails were creative and very good. Nice touch with a glass of champagne to lead off. If we were to dine here again, we would be most inclined to be specific about where we sit and more enjoy ourselves.

The service from the staff was excellent however portion size was quite small for the price. $31 for an 8 ounce New York is a little bit high in my book. The noise the weather was quite high however that something I know it's out of your control of the management. We were celebrating my parents 52nd anniversary and the staff went out of their way to make my parents feel like it was a special event, which it was.

Outstanding in every respect. Impeccable service, lovely ambiance, delicious and artfully prepared food that is truly memorable. Incredible wine list as well. This is without a doubt the very best restaurant in Gig Harbor -- and beyond. We are recent transplants from the SF Bay Area and Brix 25 is the best Seattle-area restaurant we have tried bar none.

Salads and entrees just not very tasty though presented in a fancy (stacked)(expensive)(trying too hard) way. I'd rather just have delicious food. The meat and seafood were fine but the accompanying vegetables tasted poorly. Disappointing.

Service was friendly though a bit rushed. Wine & cocktails were very good. Bread was good.

Overall a poor value. We hadn't been in a long time and won't likely return.
