    Brix has the best brunch and bottomless mimosas! However we did have a reservation for 1:15 and didn’t get sat until around 1:45. We didn’t see our server until almost 20 minutes after we were sat. They were busy so I can understand that, but we saw our server check on the tables around us multiple times before he came over to us.

    We had a terrible experience. After being seated the server didn't come take our order for 45 minutes. We then waited another 45 minutes for our food and it was clear it had been sitting in the kitchen for a long time because it was icy cold. The eggs were dry and overcooked and the bacon was rubbery. The hashbrowns were soggy. Our server never came back the entire time we were there to check on us. We had to track someone down to get our check.

    This was early evening — 5:45 seating. Server was helpful & knowledgeable. Drinks arrived ok. Took awhile to get our food order in. Burger was charred & dry around the edge, only the center & the tots were edible. Pasta dishes had sat & only the center was ‘warm.’ Server did not check back with us in a timely manner for us to ask for it to be reheated & we had tickets for the ballet so needed to leave. Disappointing experience. Not sure we will be back.

    A group of seven with two young children ate at Brix. The server was very attentive to the parents’ request for the children and brought their food out first. Along with drink cups with lids and straws. Very nice! We all enjoyed our food, including fried chicken, chicken pot pie and halibut tacos. Good seasoning and flavors!

    This place has really gone downhill, ll except for the prices which remain high. Very few other diners on a Friday night, yet service was painfully slow. Drink orders took forever. Food was fair at best. We used to love this place. Won’t be back.

    My husband and I had never been to Brix before, but reviews were pretty good and we wanted to try a new to us place for breakfast. Staff was lovely—friendly, attentive, etc. We liked the big windows which gave the space outside light. The openness of the room was a plus, but we got there early, so don’t know if it’s a benefit when the place is full and noisy. The food—I ordered a Dungeness crab and shrimp omelette and had them hold the hashbrowns. My husband ordered the waffle with bacon. First, the omelette looked beautiful and was perfectly cooked. The waffle was cold, but according to my husband it was tasty anyway. The omelette was filled with an almost pasty mixture of what was supposed to be crab and shrimp. I took one bite and the fishy flavor was strong. I scooped the rest of the filling out of the omelette and sat it aside. I had concern about eating it. When the server came back and inquired about our breakfast I explained that the omelette filling tasted super fishy. I suggested she have the chef try it as I was convinced it was well passed the use by date. She said she’d replace my meal with something else if I’d like. I chose not to do that, but finished eating my plain omelette. It was delicious without the filling. While I never heard whether the chef agreed with me on the crab/shrimp our bill came and the server had removed the cost of my order. We may drop by Brix for a second time just because the staff was so great. I won’t order any seafood though!

    I’ve been going to Brix for at least a decade or more. Always enjoy the food, but there have been some changes to standards on the menu that I’m not as happy about but the quality is still good. Good service and good value.

    We were looking for a “fun” brunch spot and Brixx fit the bill! My husband and teenage daughter and I met up with my friend and her boyfriend and daughter. Everyone enjoyed their food and the adults in the party REALLY enjoyed the $13 unlimited mimosas! I will definitely be back next time we are in the area. Also, our server Erica was sweet as pie and took great care of us.

    Caveat: this was a very slow weekday lunch due to horrible winter weather, and I think staff was short. However, business was also super slow that day. The food was average, nothing special. The shrimp bento was one-note, and could have been so much more (coleslaw had same flavor as teriyaki sauce, and could have instead been special on its own with a spicy japanese dressing). Peanut sauce was good, though. Mac-n-Cheese was boring--my date didn't finish it. We asked for honey and milk for her tea and they brought cream and simple syrup. Definitely not the same. Probably not returning.

    The food was delicious and prepared just as it was asked for with the exception of the switch out of fruit for the hash browns. The noise level is overwhelming due to loud customers and the loud jarring music being played. The food and drinks took a very long time to arrive and there was no follow up about how the food was or if we wanted another beverage. The tables are very close together and the layout feels cramped. Would do a take out order in the future because the food was great. I wouldn’t choose to dine in again any time soon due to the noise level and slow service.

    Food was disappointing. Very small portion of Brix chips, the pizza was extremely basic. In the past the pizza has been super tasty, this time it was like a frozen pizza with a ton of mozzarella just plopped on top. We were sat in the way back area and it was so cold, our entire party kept our coats on during our entire meal.

    We normally come here during Christmas time. Our server, Josh served the donuts which were hard and cold. We asked for some fresh donuts. He advised it would he a few minutes and walked away, while walking away he slammed his tray like he was upset at our request. My food was lukewarm, the second set of donuts were no better than the first. They tasted like the batter was old and fried too hard. We asked if there was a different recipe and Josh couldn’t answer that. The mimosas were weak. We have decided not to come here anymore. The quality in food and service have both gone downhill. Do better.

    We showed up around 5pm, we were told by the hostess that there was no way they could seat 4 of us unless we had a reservation. I proceeded to get online to book a reservation for 5:15 and proceeded to show her that I just made a reservation. She then, walked away for like 5 minutes before coming back to seat us. After she sat us, we were served what tasted like dish water. The only reason our visit was saved is that we had an extremely kind and accommodating waiter. He was helpful and very friendly. He immediately got us drinkable water and remained great throughout his service. The food was alright, but only because it was happy hour pricing. The calamari was way over cooked and the wings were soggy. We have dined at Brixx many times and have never had such a bad experience. I apologize for the poor review, but it was such a disappointment.
