    Fantastic food, ok service and ok ambience, though that depends on where you sit, some parts more “fun” and others more quiet.

    Brix is not what it appears on Open Table. It's at best a pub that is poorly heated and everything has too much salt. Tasted more like frozen entrees that have high levels of sodium to preserve them. Only the pasta dishes were not. Disappointed that it was on OpenTable...

    Our server was amazing. Very attentive and fun to even late diners like us on Sunday night. Food was amazing. They have an extensive menu. We had the Sunday gravy which tasted so comforting and simple appetisers like wings set them ahead because they were so good. Finding this place made us happy.

    I enjoy a great food and a refreshing cocktail with my meal. The service and staff was excellent. Friendly and attentive to their tables. The food speaks for itself! Tasteful and prepared to perfection, from their brick oven pizza, pasta and steaks. Absolutely a great meal. Unfortunately, the only reason I can’t give more stars is the drinks were terrible. They need a bartender with experience or someone who samples a drink before they send it out. The cocktails will put you in diabetic shock!!! $ 16 dollars for a Mexican mule is absolutely ridiculous! More expensive then Manhattan and worst of all audacity to charge those drink prices! Sorry management needs to re-evaluate the drink menu and bar service! Go for dinner or take out stay away from the cocktails! And I sampled 4 different cocktails before giving my review! Hope this helps!

    Restaurant said there was a “glitch open table shouldn’t have booked reservations”. I was told someone from open table was suppose to cancel with me. Horrible. It is Mother’s Day! We were lucky to find another local place to seat us. Turned out to be a blessing as we had an amazing meal someplace else. Aside from the mistake - no one really cared to help! The manager (I assume) literally said “I cancelled 18 people. I don’t know what to tell you”. No apology, no urgency to help. Will not return and open table should remove this place as they do not honor reservations made on the site.

    The restaurant was quick and good with seating us. Once we sat down our waitress was nice. However, we waited over an hour for our food and by the time we got it, some parts were cold as if just warmed up. We were in the restaurant for over 2 hours and maybe a handful of times were we checked on. Then the music would go super loud and then it would be really low. Just a very unpleasant experience.

    If I said the service was horrible, it would be greatly understated! The waitress took our water and we never saw her again. Somebody else brought out our food. And we have an asked to see her to get the check we would’ve definitely had dessert and at least one more cocktail each. But They never gave us the chance to order anything else.

    I'm a former server so it really takes a lot for me to give a 1 star for service. But it was the day before Valentine's Day, and the restaurant wasn't full at all, my server maybe had a three table section. I called ahead to make sure we were just allowed to order off the pre-fix menu as my fiancé is vegetarian and plus we would of spent more money and had a higher bill, thus a higher gratuity ordering off the menu (I always start with tipping 20% and goes up from there, this server would of gotten no tip probably if someone other than me [or another person who's also served] was their patron. So I ask for the regular menu because like I said and called to make sure we could still order off the regular menu (which we could), and another table with a different server had the regular menu, so when I asked her, she a actually scoffed and said "do you need that menu" as if I was doing her a disservice of ordering off the regular menu because she thought us not order (2) $60 pre-fix orders would hinder us from tipping, so I tipped her 20% just to spite her, not that she probably cared. Needless to say, won't be going back. Oh and the rice balls had a cold center but that wasn't her fault.

    Brix was a nice place to take my entire family (5 small kids included). The service was great and they were very accommodating setting up our table. The food was average pizzeria type food. There wasn't anything special about it, but what we ordered came out in a reasonable time and was prepared well. If your looking for a nice family restaurant without any high expectations, Brix is a nice find

    I had seen several good reviews on social media and have been wanting to stop in being it is a new restaurant in my area. My mother was visiting from Florida and my girlfriend and I wanted to take her out to dinner.Mom decided she'd like Italian food. So, I took them to Brix. Everything was just great all around. The atmosphere was great, service was great, food was superb.. We shared the artichoke appetizer, which we all loved.. My Orecchiette Alla Norcina was delicious! And, Im not a guy who usually takes a doggy bag, if its on my plate its gone, but the portion could easily fed two.. Mom loved her spinach raviolis and Brittany loved her shrimp fancese (which is a favorite). I highly recommend it whether its date night or a group event.

    We found Brix by accident because it was listed under Montclair in Open Table but actually is in Belleville. We were the only patrons there on a Saturday night when we first walked in. The food was great but the waiter actually forgot about our Caesar salad appetizer. Its not that he was busy!! He made good by wrapping it up so we could bring it home and not charging us. They had a great micro brew selection of beer as well as a decent wine list. The ambiance was very nice and the bathroom was clean and done up. We would definitely go back, as long as we didn't want to go to Montclair!!

    Very good food, brick oven pizza's were incredible especially for the half prize before 7pm! Tried almost all pizza's! Entree servings were huge and can be split so it was perfect that we have pizza's as appetizers and split the 6 entrees, we were a group of 16 and there was more than enough. Unfortunately, the server forgot our calamari fritti but it's ok, we'll go back to try that. Best part is the Karaoke which starts at 9pm on a Friday. It's fun, energetic and folks seems in a different world just having a great time.
