Our dinner started out with our waiter coming off like a star. He had energy and was friendly. He quickly brought water to the table and, after tasting it, we realized that the glasses tasted soapy - they weren't rinsed properly. When my wife told him, that's when his mood changed. He became non-responsive and absent. I had to run out for a few minutes and pick my son up (there was a situation that needed my attention) and I told my wife to go ahead and order for her and our daughter and I'd call her on my way back so she could order for my sone and I. Fast forward 20 minutes and I'm calling my wife. She's had her appetizer and can't find the waiter. I get back. Still no waiter. We flag down another staff, order, ask for some bread (as every other table seems to have some) and then our waiter arrives to see if we need anything. He also came back to tell me that they were out of what I wanted. The food comes, the waiter remains absent, another server clears our plates, waiter returns with dessert menus and a tea bag for my wife. Doesn't return (the restaurant is not that busy now), another server takes our dessert order and we ask where the hot water is...our original waiter returns with the hot water, another server comes with our desserts...but you bet he was nice when he brought the bill. Don't think I'll be returning...however the food was good.
It was very quiet on Labor Day weekend. Sat at the bar for a drink before dinner and never left. Food is always good. The Thai Chili Shrimp appetizer is one of our favorites.
First time here and we really liked it. Food choices were extensive and very thing we ordered was delicious
Our first visit to this restaurant. Informal atmosphere in a lovely restaurant. Server was knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and very efficient. Our seafood entrée's were superb and the wine list was very good. We will return with friends.
Service needs work. Definetly upgraded the wine list and food
Perfect for colleague lunch.., chef accommodated our requests on runs well cooked., attentive service. Creative salads.
Outstanding food and service.
Wonderful atmosphere and food!
Another great dinner with all four teenage boys. They love this restaurant; they love the food; they love the ambiance. Ash and all the staff totally rock! My wife and I generally don’t ordered off the menu - we just go with the amazing specials of the night. The kids all have their favorites.
The food and drinks were very good(great bartender) Service was very slow. After we ordered and received our appetizer it was all downhill from their We had to wait a long time for our waiter to get back to us to take our order. I don’t really think it was his fault though because he had to many tables to take care of both inside and out on the
Patio. The steak Diane that I had was very good as usual and my wife really liked her scallops entrée. A special desert was bananas Foster’s on a Belgian waffle which
On another topic, I noticed later on that the restaurant or OpenTable advised that we would not receive points for our reservation. Can you explain?
Excellent place to eat with great service and extensive selection of world class wine.
We had an excellent dinner celebrating our wedding anniversary. It was unfortunate that a trio of Moms let their children run around the restaurant, jumping in booths and rolling on the floor. It took away from our celebration. The mothers said nothing to correct their children nor the waiters. We were glad when they finally left.
Heirloom tomato gazpacho. Salmon Isabella. Chalk Hill Chardonnay. Service by Marko. What a combination of choices for the perfect dining experience! Brx gets it right!
Wonderful food and great service.
We always enjoy our dining at Brix. The specials are always so creative and delicious. We enjoy the atmosphere and the staff has been very attentive. One of the best features is the wine...house chardonnay is great and the wine selection, in general, is very good.
This restaurant was a great find. Service was great, with the entire staff working together to make for a pleasant experience. The food was great. Vegetables were very fresh and cooked just the right amount. We plan to return here and to introduce friends to this restaurant.
Salmon Isabella always outstanding! Great wine specials. Marko does a great job with service and bar tending. One of our favorite restaurants!
Always a GREAT meal at BRX! The Chef/owner takes great pride in his work and the staff are always friendly and efficient. BRX is a great alternative to heading to Tysons or Reston Town Center for great cuisine that is also family friendly. GO CAPS!!!
What a lovely meal! Wonderful food. Great wine. Good service. We will be back.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Brx American today. The food is always good. The service is fast and attentive. It is a Great Falls neighborhood gem.
Service was really slow, even though restaurant was empty. Had to wait almost an hour for our lunch which was salads, French toast and pancakes. Although we asked for it bread was never brought to the table. The waiter apologized and gave us a discount but we still won't be back.
Great food - at our table of 4 we all were extremely pleased with the taste of our dinners - it was all prepared perfectly! Great wine and cocktails - and the waiter and chef could not have been more helpful and charming :) We will definitely be back again
What's better than delicious soup on a chilly Spring? day!
Always a delicious lunch! Great food and great service! Definitely a neighborhood gem.
We selected Brx from the OpenTable reviews and the outdoor dining area.
First, we really appreciated Chef Ahluwalia introducing himself as we finished our desert.
While we enjoyed the food, the service fell flat. No one greeted us at the hostess stand. After waiting a few minutes, we moved to the dining area and finally caught a server's attention and got seated outside right away.
The bread arrived before the plates and while ordered first, the wine came after the appetizer.
The outdoor dining area is lovely, and we really enjoyed its ambiance.
Very good appetizers. Trout excellent. My friend got the encrusted scallops and was not very impressed with them. A week before that she had the sautéed scallops and they were excellent. My other friend ordered the seared tuna and he thought it was very flavorful. We love this restaurant and will keep coming back.
We sat outside on first warm night of the year. Service by Ben was outstanding. Food was excellent... our favorite was the mushroom soup. The hummus appetizer was equally great. Special was the steak, It was excellent.
We were there for Easter brunch for which they charged $37 per adult. While they food itself was good, it was very overpriced. The selection of "adult" brunch food was limited, and the price did not even include a mimosa or bloody mary. My mistake for not reading the fine print when I booked the reservation, but the $37 price tag was a shock. I suggest carefully researching the offerings for Holiday events before booking. Otherwise, I like Brx, the food in general is very good.
The meal was outstanding!
Brx American Bistro is such an awesome find. It is unassuming from the outside and outstanding on the inside. I love the cozy décor with a fireplace and everything we have ever ordered has been delicious. All items are well thought out and well portioned. My kids ages 5,9,13 as well as the adults always find something we love. Brunch, pasta, fries trio, bruschetta, to name a few. Give it a try...you won't be disappointed.
Service was slow and inconsistent. it was difficult to get the server’s attention.
Another wonderful lunch! Warm fire, delicious soup and fresh baked banquette sure gets rid of the "March" wintry blues.
Great place. Been there many times. Never disappoints!!
Great salad ... delicious crab soup! Neighborhood gem!
Had a lovely time here after being without electricity for a while. Great decor, spacious, light filled dining room; super friendly staff; happy to let you charge your phone at the many outlets along the bar. Will definitely go back for a lovely dinner - they found the sweet spot of not being too casual and a sports bar and not being too fancy - you can dress up or down. Food was solid, we just had sandwiches but they were nice. Expect the dinner menu would be delicious.
Simply put .... always excellent food ... always excellent service .... always excellent atmosphere .... always excellent!!
The lunch was a little pricey, but the food was good. The waiter was sullen, but efficient. There were only two tables of customers, so he didn't have much to do.
Delicious food and cozy dining on a rainy Friday.
