It’s a bar. Only go for drinks and chatting with friends.

The restaurant is beautiful! But we had a horrible server. I was a server for 3 years and never treated anyone the way Robert treated my friend and I. We came all the way from Texas to visit this spot and I regret so much.

Nice decor, friendly staff. We ordered 2 appetizers and two glasses of wine. The place was busy but not excessively busy. The two appetizers took a long time to come, a good 20 mins. The spinach artichoke dip was delicious, the sauce of the giant meat ball was very good but the meatball itself was a little dry. And for these two reasons I refrained from giving it a 5 star review. I would probably give it a second try though!

I like Brixton. Good variety of menu options and friendly service. Full bar and wine list that's pretty good too. Great for groups or 1:1 or just solo dining.

Son loved the meatball. I think it was decent bar food but I was mistaken thinking it was fancier so that was my fault. Waitress was very friendly and professional. Made the meal more enjoyable.

I really enjoy bringing friends, clients and business associates to Brixton. The service and food are great. The only issue (at times) is that the music can be too loud. But that does not stop me from coming and enjoying the fun restaurant.

Great variety of food for folks from GF and vegans to carnivores.... uniformly consistent statements, “this is yummy!”

Also attentive and genuine service from Robert. When in Cow Hollow, this is a breakfast/brunch favorite.

Great place to go before a baseball game. NOT just fried fast bar food bites, but some real food. Compare the menu and you will agree. All 6 of us were pleased.

My only objection is that during the day they play the music much too loud. It is nearly impossible to have a conversation. Love the service. Food is yummy. Really enjoy bringing people there except for the loud music.

I prefer to write good reviews but can't do it here. We took out-of-town family for dinner there and had a lovely time for a while. Meal was decent, service good, prices SF high; we spent big for 9 people. Until the GGWarriors play-off game was broadcast on TV just as we were getting our meal. TVs were turned up full volume. (Who needs to watch a basketball game at full volume?) Even worse, the TV commercials were at full volume, on and on and on. The entire place was full of drinkers by then and everyone in the restaurant/bar had to lean in and shout to their friends. I asked nicely for the volume to be turned down to a reasonable level and it was reduced but just a wee bit. It was so, so obnoxious! Our group was all so annoyed, and I was embarrassed for choosing the restaurant. We actually ate quickly and left in a hurry so we could chat on the street instead. We saw other diners do the same.
I understand the concept of a college bar and the attendant noise level but this was way beyond reasonable. Even a basketball fan asked to have the volume reduced. No way will I ever go back there or recommend it to anyone. And I suggest management speak to the employees about how to create atmosphere that doesn't chase away customers. Bad experience.

LOUD. LOUD. LOUD. A group of 10 of us went there for Sat dinner and hoped for a chance to catch up with each other and plan our upcoming vacation. But the restaurant noise level was so ear piercing loud, we couldn't even hear the next person talked, we had to leave after only a drink and an appetizer. Food and drink were good and tasty. Call us "old" but we can't understand why restaurants have to create such a noisy environment that you can't carry on a conversation without screaming your lungs out.

Location, atmosphere and food were great. Waitress was pleasant but was horrible at her job. Order wad screwed up. No appetizer was delivered, meals came out late with obvious lies for excuses. Side dish was never put into kitchen. Food runner was completely confused and tried to deliver us three appetizers that we did not order. Total mess.

We enjoy the Brixton. The food and service are good (not great), but the ambiance and location make it a go-to spot for us when we have a large group and want the extra time to talk. Expect slower service and ask about the menu to find the best dishes.

Was in the mood to try something new and out the way. The food was good. The venue was very lively and energetic kinda hard to carry on a conversation without yelling at the person across from me. The service was good.
