The dinner options include more gourmet fare, and The Brick Hotel & Restaurant is noted for its risotto, mushroom soup and generous entr�es.
Server needs to polish up skills. Asked me to hand him my plates, glasses, etc. it was a ghost town on a Wednesday night. Food was ok.
We've eaten at the Brick in the past, mainly for lunch. On those occasions it was fine.This dinner was very disappointing. The server tried his best but was obviously untrained and inexperienced. One guest ordered a glass of cabernet, and said it tasted like the bottle had been opened for several days. He drank it anyway and ordered another but asked for it to come from a new bottle. The server then said the original bottle had been open for two or three days. (At least he was honest.) food was just okay. Crab cakes are a featured item on the menu, but they were out. When serving the entrée, the waiter brought the meals on a big tray but had forgotten to clear the appetizer dishes, so he had to do both at the same time while balancing the tray. A near disaster. We won't be going back anytime soon.
Our dinner was a nice, relaxing, family dinner. Our server was very attentive, and our meals were very good. We did not want to be rushed, and were able to take our time to enjoy a pre-dinner drink with appetizers, then our soup/salad course, and a full dinner. The price was a little higher, but not outrageous. We would definitely go back.
Brick Hotel located at crossroads of historic downtown Newtown.
Restaurant is ideal for light meal and conversation. Relaxed bar. Friendly staff.
Brunch was great with a variety of food of high quality
Made a reservation for Mother's Day through OpenTable for 1:00 (first available time). The restaurant called the week before to say that they didn't have a reservation available for 12:30. I stated I knew that because I reserved through OpenTable. That's why I actually booked for 1:00, as the suggested next available time.
They said that OpenTable reservations don't come through right to them.
I was then asked for a credit card to hold the table. I obliged and gave it to them.
I got there for the 1:00 reservation. We were not seated until 1:20 and told our server would be right over to take drink orders and explain the buffet. No server ever came to the table, so, after 15 minutes, we left. Can't comment on food. We didn't stay long enough. However, if what we experienced in the time it took to get seated and have a server say hello to us was any indication, I'm not sure I'd have anything positive to say. I wanted this to be a good experience, but it wasn't. And, on Mother's Day...disappointing.
The service was the worst I have ever experienced. We were not told our brunch options, the waiter was completely not prepared - he didn't know the options- water was spilled on the seat of one of our chairs, I saw him drop a breakfast at the next table, our table was never cleared, we were ignored and the gratuity price was fixed. Our waiter did nothing to earn that tip. It was Mothers Day Brunch. The menu online looked good. The reservations were made at least a month out and yet we were called three times ahead to confirm with a credit card or our table would be given away. There were no flowers on the table nor a candle. Nothing hung on the walls to make the room feel warm. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. We will never go back. It was such a disappointment for a special occasion.
Beautiful place. The food and service were fine.
My daughter had just found her wedding gown at La Belle Mariee, so we were celebrating with a nice lunch. Your restaurant was wonderful. Great food, beautiful location, very nice waiter. It was a real pleasure having lunch at your location. I highly recommend it!
Great time great experience , my and I went for easter brunch, the person at the carving station rocked it . Can't wait to go back for anther fun experience.
Great tomato soup and a very well flavored burger. Salads are also excellent.
My wedding day was this past Saturday, held at the Brick Hotel. It was the most wonderful day, and the Brick Hotel staff helped it be so special and memorable. From Tammy, the event planner, who worked closely with me making sure my ideas were executed, to the owner who was so supportive of my requests, to the amazing wait staff who handled the service perfectly, to the food (all hot and cold appetizers) which were fabulous, I can't thank you enough. The rave reviews from all who attended have been amazing. This is the most perfect setting for an intimate, charming occasion and I encourage (and highly recommend) anyone thinking of having an elegant, tasteful, and beautiful event to visit the Brick Hotel and see for yourself. The guests also loved the in town location so they could stroll around post reception and continue the party. The weather was amazing, so guests were able to sit at their outside tables in the garden, and enjoy the sunroom tables surrounding the room.
Thank you to everyone at the Brick Hotel for making my wedding day so amazingly special.
I knew it was a risky dinner proposition when we were able to get reservations for 6 people the night before New Year's Eve but tried it anyway. It literally took only a few minutes to begin the horrible experience. NO BAR TENDER ON NEW YEAR'S EVE! What were these people thinking? The young man serving us both at the bar and our table was at least trying hard and very apologetic but obviously inexperienced. Simply put, when one goes to a restaurant like the Brick Hotel and pays the kind of prices for food, they expect and deserve experienced and professional staff. We dine out in Newtown almost every week and won't be going back to the Brick Hotel anytime soon... AGAIN!
We went to the Brick for New Years Eve. It took the waitress 30 minutes to take our food order. We stopped another waiter an asked him to take our order. Our waitress began arguing with him right in front of us. It took over an hour for us to get our entrées. When we needed refills for our drinks our waitress was nowhere to be found. All of the people around us were complaining. Several people left before getting there meals. The food was delicious but not worth the wait.
Very good food but very slow service - wait staff were overwhelmed and not enough staff for # of customers. Hope they can fix this as I like the feel of the place and the food was very good and price are reasonable.
The tomato soup was very good, as were our salads and the risotto. Nice location with good views as well.
We had dinner on a Saturday night and were extremely disappointed. The service was atrocious, food was cold and tasteless. To get bread, I had to go into the kitchen myself and find the manager to convince him to serve us a basket of bread because our waitress told us that they recently stopped serving bread as a policy. I can easily say that I will never go back even though the bar and overall ambiance look very appealing. It was a complete waste of time and money.
Very good menu meals but Thanksgiving Buffet a bust. Food lukewarm to cold. Regular days go but not on Buffets.
The food in the chafing dishes wasn't very hot. The prime rib was very very fatty. It took quite a while for the omelet. The desserts were very good. I keep giving The Brick Hotel another chance, but I think this was the last time. They've run out of chances.
My husband and I just celebrated our five year anniversary at The Brick Hotel. Loved the seat by the window overlooking their lovely, lighted garden. Romantic atmosphere, friendly & efficient waitress, delectable food. Might just make this place our annual anniversary restaurant!
