Looking forward to returning and trying dinner perhaps. Much quieter for a Sunday lunch celebration than I would have anticipated for such a great location, perhaps we missed the brunch rush. Overall we had a great meal and our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable without being overly '
"there"

Food was mediocre at best. Service was horribly slow even though the restaurant was empty. I ate here six months ago and it was as good. Something has changed. I would recommend going somewhere else.

We chose Brix and Ale as an alternative to a 2 hour wait at a favorite of ours on 7th street. There was no waiting @ B&A and while it wasn't a bad restaurant or experience there was nothing memorable about B&A except maybe the price (too expensive) relative to the service and fare. Aside from the price I wouldn't note that for a near empty restaurant the service was slow and somewhat inattentive. Again, I wouldn't characterize the service or fare as bad, just below expectations.
I do wish the restaurant all the success in the world.

The food was okay but the service was poor. We had sandwiches and it took over 45 minutes to get our food. The waiter never check back to see if we need drink refills and we ended up going to the bar to get a second round of drinks.

I had booked the reservation through open table and had then called the restaurant. This was a lunch that I had planned for my sister who has difficulty getting around and we were looking for a spot with a beautiful view. I have been in the restaurant before I knew that the view was wonderful. We got there however and we’re not told that there was an abbreviated menu. If you go please ensure that they had the full menu available and not just a few items because they have large crowds and are trying to get them in and out. We could not even be offered anything different other than what the business crowd was eating for lunch. Very disappointing. Everyone told my sister happy birthday but that was pretty much it, no other accommodations. It was horribly noisy and not even a place to sit and enjoy the restaurant or view. I wish they had a small location for those people who do not want to be a part of the chaos.

Our family dined at Brix and Ale on a Friday night. I made reservations assuming it would be busy but the restaurant was mostly empty. The food was good and reasonably priced. There was a nice selection of craft beers and wine. The service was good. We would return.

Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted promptly and sat at a table by the window. As we sat there we were surprised to find the restaurant empty, a few people did arrive by the time we were done dining but nothing that we are used to. Not sure why a reservation is needed. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly; we ordered the salmon & double boned pork. The salmon is a must have great flavor, now the pork was very dry and as you could see it was put in the oven too long as my carrots & spinach were burnt. The carrots & spinach were very salty. We order dessert and this was very good. Warm Lemon ricotta donut holes with a dipping sauce. The coffee is rich and strong which I do appreciate a good cup of coffee. Would we return, yes but I would not get the pork this time.

When we arrived there was almost no one there and yet it still took them 45 minutes to take our drink order and then another 20 minutes to get our drink order and put in our food order. There was no sense of quickness with the waitstaff even after we told them we had tickets to a play. We had an hour and a half to eat and get to our play and we almost missed our play.

good food but excruciatingly long wait time when no one was even around.

Although the food was okay, the service was terrible. Each drink order was taken one at a time. Drink and food delivery took forever. I ordered my daughter's dinner first since she was hungry and she was completely done eating before the rest of our order arrived. We were there for 1-hour before we got our food. One drink order was incorrect and 2 of the 5 dinner orders were messed up. I went to the bar to get 2 of the 5 drinks for our table since our server was so slow to return to the table. Once we had our corrected food orders, no one came back to see if we were doing okay with food and drinks. We will not be back.

The location and ambiance are amazing. The food was good. I ordered braised chicken that was cooked perfectly, a couple people at our table enjoyed the burgers.

The service was **slow (we waited a long time for drinks & food and there were long periods were the server was around). The interaction with our servicer was a bit awkward. My husband ordered a drink a certain manner. When it arrived the server asked if it was made correctly. My husband informed him it wasn't...the server simply said "Hmm" then made no attempt to have the drink fixed.

**the restaurant wasn't overly crowded or busy

Don’t get much for the money. Portions are small. We had the salmon, scallops, chicken-all these plates had small portions, and not much flavor. However one bright spot was the steak, that turned out to be the bright part of the evening.....

Very disappointed. Only 3 tables were dining at the restaurant at noon which tells me there are problems. Menu has changed - only one soup offered, limited lunch menu. One person had a salad which was poor quality and unimpressive appearance. Another person had the steak burger which was ordered well-done and was burnt! Others meals were just ok. Simply not worth $14 for a sandwich.

The food and service were both the best. From their San Gabriel Flatbread, Crab Cake Salad, Filet of Beef to the Peach Cobbler, everything was prepared perfectly and tasted amazing. This was the first time that we had been here, but it certainly won't be our last.

Our service partner was Stephen and he timed everything just right. Excellent service.

The staff were amazing in setting up this birthday dinner for my wife. The food was good, as always, but for some reason the steak was sub par this time. I've had the New York Strip twice before and both times it was excellent. This time it was tough and fatty, far below what one would expect for the price. However, this is the first time I've had a bad steak at Brix and Ale, so I'm hoping this was an exception (and not an indication that they are going to a cheaper cut of meat). My wife loved her crispy skin trout. The side of grits were excellent, as usual, and their guacamole appetizer was both unique and very tasty. The service was very good. Great wine selection. And the Georgetown Manhattan is a bar high point, in my opinion. I would definitely recommend the Brix and Ale. My wife and I will be coming back.
