We liked the many choices on the menu. We chose the calimari appetizer which was expertly fried and slightly spicy yum. Lethe sandwiches, stake on French dip- perfect beef, onion aus juis. Turkey Ruben also received praise.

Food was hit and miss. My NY steak was perfect, but there were issues with the other main courses being a bit cold or undercooked. The sides were creative, but none tasted great and some were not warmed thoroughly. Beet salad was very good.

Used to be a good place to eat. Unfortunately they are pre-making the food before it's ordered. Both dishes came out cold and soggy. Waitstaff was inattentive and couldn't be bothered to at least reheat our meal. Will not be going back.

I thought the food was adequate though one of our group had the chicken fried chicken and it was outstanding. My fish and chips were okay, the prime rib was good, the burger was good. The restaurant caters to large groups, it's noisy and busy. I do have to say that the service was top notch. I'm too old for this place but it's probably a great attraction for 35 and under crowd.

Went for brunch with a large group of family, and had so much fun. Watched the Iowa football game, had great bloody marys and mimosas, and delicious brunch and burgers! Also, the tables have crayons and are covered in paper for extra drawing fun for kids...

Had brunch with a friend, the food was wonderful but the service was outstanding! Our servers name was Jordan she's incredibly efficient, extremely friendly and engaging. I will ask for her the next time I'm there. Thank you for the great experience!

This is typical bar food. Not that great, we had the truffle mac and there was WAY too much truffle (oil) it gave it a bitter taste we couldn't finish it. I had the quinoa salad and it had cold pre cooked chicken. The taste was ok but it was a disappointment. Overall it was just at food. Ok but not great. We did have a good time there and the service was great. Our server recommended some great drinks too.

Julia was our server and she was great. We used to go to Brix when it first opened all the time. Because of where we live now, we don't go as often but we have recommended it to a few friends. One of my friends had just recently landed a new job and this was her choice or restaurant - and I wasn't complaining :) The service was great and the food and drinks were awesome.

I booked my 30th birthday dinner at Brix for 8 people for 7pm. The staff was friendly and service was ok. There seemed to not be enough serving staff, drink took awhile to get. The food was decent and standard. But I'm a foodie. :)

The food was mediocre, really nothing special especially in a town where brunch is quickly becoming the hottest meal. We ordered the eggs Benedict, and while I was expecting unconventional, it needed more seasoning. Service was great so was Bloody Mary, but the food was just bland.

We brought out of town family here for brunch and everyone loved it! There was something for everyone and a few of us got the bottomless mimosas. At the end of the meal our server was happy to split our bill up how we needed it so that was a plus.

I had high hopes for Brix. The ambiance was lovely, and being served warm donuts when we sat down was a special treat. But the four of us in our party were pretty disappointed with our meals. My salmon eggs benedict was bland and a little dry. The hollandaise may have been forgotten...not sure. My fiance's chicken fried chicken was dry and lacked seasoning. My friend's seafood omelet looked beautiful but was overcooked, and the crab and shrimp were overwhelmed by lots and lots of cheese. The hashbrowns with each of our dishes were great, though. Not greasy at all, which was nice. We had great service, and again, loved the atmosphere. But my fiance and I made the reservation to try out Brix as we were planning to have our brunch wedding at Urban Studio and catered by Pearl Catering. We thought we'd try brunch and see how it was. Given our experience at Brix, we are rethinking our wedding venue. The meal is the centerpiece of our wedding celebration, and we want it to be outstanding.

We had a group of 16 for brunch (with bottomless mimosas) and the service was wonderful!!! Our waiter was awesome. Very friendly and tolerant of our antics. The food was great for a GREAT price and my bloody was to die for. I will definitely be back.

Nice and friendly spot for a Sunday brunch. Drinks were pleasantly strong, the donuts that showed up unexpectedly were phenomenal (miiiight have kicked the sauce off the plate, maybe), and our brunch entrees were all excellent. Would definitely go back again if I'm ever in PDX.

My friend bailed on me so they graciously sat my single self at a table, albeit a corner high top in the back, heh. Jordan the waitress was friendly and attentive, and so was the... maitre de? He might have been the manager. I felt welcome even though I was the only diner alone at my table. Thank you for that.

We went to Brix before a comedy show and caught the last part of their happy hour. The staff was excellent and the food was great. My only complaint would be that I ordered a specialty happy hour "martini" (mango puree' spicy vodka) and there was barely any vodka. Usually martinis are predominately alcohol, but beware that they hold back on their happy hour menu for that. I would order wine or beer next time to get my money's worth (although happy hour beer and wine was also $5 or more).

We were definitely disappointed by the food at Brix. The food was just not that good. It was not worth the trip. The food descriptions on the menu made everything sound SO good. We had a gift card so we went for it. And, nothing was really very good at all. The burger was only fine although we could tell it was made with quality meat. The Reuben was very difficult to eat. the apples were too thick so popped out when you tried to take a bite and the flavor was nothing special. The tater tots tasted of old oil. And, the pork nachos did not taste like something that was made fresh. (Although the sauce around the edge of the nachos was yummy.) The cilantro crema was sour cream with a little cilantro in it.
Just blah all around.

This was a really weird dining experience. I made reservations and came about 30 minutes early to just see if we could be seated early. The restaurant was about half full and I was told they need 5-10 minutes to get the table set-up. I noticed that the table we ended up being sat at was already set, so I am confused about what the wait was for. The waitstaff was just unusual. The bartender ended up taking out order (because he asked if he were ready) and then he didn't even have anything to write down our order. Overall, the staff just seemed liked they had no structure and didn't really know what they were doing.
Brix was overall okay. Just good. That being said, I probably will not return anytime soon.
