"We went to the Brixton because we wanted burgers -- I am a carnivore, my is vegan. When we arrived -- with a reservation -- we waited for at least five minutes at the host stand without being acknowledged by anyone. We finally caught someone's attention and were seated in the front of the restaurant. The server promptly brought us menus and water (without asking if we wanted any), and we placed orders for drinks (one glass of wine and one beer). After almost 20 minutes and no server or drinks, we had to get up and ask someone if we could get our drinks, which had been sitting at the end of the bar the entire time. The food took at least 20 minutes after ordering. We had to move tables because there was such a draft that we were freezing. Once moved, the very attentive bus boy took our flatware and side plates -- TWICE. He was so fast that we didn't notice. Overall: go there for a loud atmosphere and drink at the bar, but don't expect outstanding or quick service."
