It was ok. Food was good. My daughter enjoyed her mini tacos, Caesar salads were good and the avocado toast was good.
The waitress forgot a few items but was very apologetic. It was so loud and noisy that she probably didn’t hear the order correctly.
A good place for the young adult crowd.

My partner and I had a performance on the north side of the city and so we thought that we'd check out Brixton. It reminded me of a college bar for folks who haven't yet given up on the fact that they've aged out of college bars. The food was so-so (not sure why they make such a stink over the Impossible Burger). The chocolate brownie dessert was awful (how can you mess up such a classic!?). The short of it: their marketing is really good but the experience doesn't live up to the hype - and we won't be back.

It was really wonderful. We were seated fast, at a very comfortable table. I ordered in advance, and everything I ordered was beautiful and delicious. The brussels sprouts were noteworthy, the building was yummy, and the salmon was crispy moist and amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant. It was a bit noisy, but That is to be expected, considering it was a sports bar/gastro pub.

This is a place to get have drinks that happens to have decent food. It’s not a place to take a date and it is not a place to have an easy conversation without yelling to be heard. Popular, lively and loud. Decent wine list.

Food and service for dinner were not very good. Server was friendly and did her best to help, but was spread far too thin. Also completely packed and couldn’t hear any conversation. Good for a loud/late drinking night out, but not a meal.

This is not the place for having a conversation and the service was disappointing at best. We didn't stay long. Be forewarned that "energetic" as a noise level descriptor really means "loud".

Went for the Bloody Mary bar which was great, as advertised. The food was mediocre and the scene was a bit more recent college grad than I'd expected/hoped. Service was slow.

The Brixton would be a good place to grab drinks with friends. I would not recommend The Brixton as a restaurant. Their menu is very limited and their food is mediocre at best. I was in group of nine and we all got something different. The only thing anyone liked was the clam chowder. The service was very slow and inattentive. It took over an hour to get our food and it was not busy. Skip The Brixton if you are looking for food or wine selection. Their cocktails are good though.

The music was so loud! I could barely hear anyone talk. Our server was really lazy. He says he doesn’t usually work brunch, which is no excuse. The food was pretty good. Not sure if I would go back.

Music and chatter was so loud we could not carry on a conversation in our booth. Also, the menu on their website was not available so they did not have the food options we went there for. Very few choices for non-meat eaters.

We like the food a lot, but it took forever to get. Appetizers came at same time as meals and one of our orders was wrong and it took another 20 minutes to come out. Server seemed preoccupied with the BAR. Kids meals were great, lots of food and fantastic. Was a little shocked that an automatic 20% was added to the check for 6 people(including 2 kids).

This is a sports bar, in an expansive space. People come for the cheap bar food at happy hour. They have one or two people who take your order, never to be seen again. It took about 20 minutes for our waiter to show up, and 40 minutes for a flatbread pizza to arrive. The pizza was clearly made from frozen, and was disgusting. They leave the front door open and allow cigarette smoke to billow in and fill the place. The people who work there clearly could care less about service; they spend all of their time talking to each other and are on their phones. They have a food runner who delivered our dessert with no utensils, and then disappeared. They need a manager on site, but this won’t improve the food quality. It’s the place to go for salty, greasy, previously frozen bar food and to breathe in cigarette smoke.

The Brixton was ok. Our table was in an awkward section of half booths next to the bar with someone constantly standing behind my seat. They also didn’t check me in off Opentable and did not give me my reservation points. Very disappointing. Bathrooms were dirty and out of toilet paper.

Bread toast dry & bad. When you stress 2 times NO onions on 2 separate items & they both have onions...that’s a kitchen problem!!
Prices high for what you get.

I was really disappointed. I try not to leave bad reviews but this place deserved it. Our waitress came to our table three times the whole time we were there. Food came out cold and missing items but she would never know since she didn't come back. They seemed irritated about everything, even us asking for water. We came for a friends birthday and they didn't have the one thing on the menu she wanted to eat which was unfortunate but the waitress said she wasn't sure/would double check. Didn't come back at all. When I talk about missing items I mean basic things. I ordered a scramble, it had no cheese. My toast was cold, came with no butter or jam. Super disappointing and bland. Especially for the price.

The crowd was young, drunk and loud so not our scene. Service was not knowledgable at all and though she was sweet her lack of experience showed. The food was not great - devilled eggs were good but the slaw was bitter. Caesar salad was waaay over dressed and the dressing lacked acidity. My husband had the prime rib Sunday special and it was served over cooked and literally swimming in a bath of what I think was supposed to be au jus but instead looked and tasted like beef broth. Strangest presentation ever. The gratin potatoes were delish though.

I had the snapper over risotto and it the fish was way over seasoned.

Cocktails were same old. Nothing extraordinary.

We passed on dessert because the meal wasn't good.

Service was friendly. Nothing terribly fancy but all the comfort food was tasty. The sweet potatoe fries are fantastic if they are hot and straight from the dryer. We had two orders and one was warm and little soggy. Pasta Carbonara is a must. The steak was a little tough for a medium cook. Overall, it was an enjoyable visit and is worth another visit.

I was disappointed that I ordered a side of English muffin and it came without any butter or jelly/jam. I asked for some, and it never came. I asked again, and it never came. Then it was cold, and I had almost finished my meal. The waiter offered to bring me fresh English muffin, but at that point we were finished eating. I was surprised to see it on the bill at the end, given that the only reason I didn't eat it was because it came dry and got cold while I asked twice for butter and/or jelly/jam. I get it that it was only $3, but not good customer service any way you look at it.

Only one waitress for the whole restaurant. Service was terrible although she was very nice and tried her best under the circumstances. Pretzels, meatballs, and shishito peppers were good. Everything else was terrible. Fish and risotto were overcooked and super salty. Steak was super salty. Brussels sprouts were soggy. Chicken strips were dry and gross. Lots of drunk people too. Not going back.
