Brix Tavern Ratings and Reviews
We went on Easter. The host was very friendly and accommodating. The wait staff were all happy to help.
The food was good and a great assortment however, was luke warm when arrived. The vegetables were so so.
The drinks were trendy and fun. Coming back for lunch with friend from Hood River on Wed....
Overall experience was ok. The food was good, but that's it. The wine selection was that as well, so I guess I should have expected that. An over done creme brulee with a weird sauce covering its nice crust was unfortunate. Wouldnt really recommend the place other than for drinks. Nice happy hour.
I love Brix! It's a large open space that feels very Northwest. We had Sunday brunch and the buffet was excellent. My favorite item was the eggs Benedict on polenta- yummy! It was pricey plus beverages were not included, so brunch for two ran close to $90. My only complaint is that we were seated near the door and it was quite chilly with the door opening frequently.
Second time (I think) at their Easter Brunch. It was great, as most experiences are at Brix. They do not have as many different items as somewhere like Salty's, but what they do, they do well. The salmon was great, but the prime rib was the highlight food-wise.
The service was excellent in a very busy atmosphere. The all-you-can-drink mimosas were worth it, my glass was filled again and again. The best thing, and a peeve about other brunch spots, they clear dirty dishes very quickly!
Have always loved this place. Only complaint this time is with the water main break we were told we couldn't have water. Understandable except that every other table had water and there were CASES of water bottles lining the edge of the room. We asked several times and were repeatedly told no. Not a huge deal, just didn't understand.
We had terrible service for brunch on Sunday. We sat for 15 minutes before getting any service and had to ask to get a waitress at that point. Our waitress was very unpleasant and seemed annoyed that she had to deal with us. The food was great. Would try agin and hope for better service next time.
We chose Brix Tavern for brunch thanks to the rave reviews and bottomless bubbles. We arrived early for our reservation, and were seated shortly after our reservation time. Our server was delayed in getting to our table as there were three VERY large groups in the same section they sat us in, which was disappointing, but not unexpected. We ordered our mimosas with no issues, and moseyed over the menu for a little bit. Drinks did not flow very quickly, in comparison to other tables with servers who were not dealing with the larger groups, and it felt like we saw other servers more than we saw ours. Our food was quite delicious, and the portions were quite generous, especially for a busy brunch. We were served our food very quickly, and while we slowly ate, we found our drinks to be far more quickly refilled. We did sit for quite a bit of time, which was very nice, as we didn't feel rushed, and we tipped accordingly. All in all, I'd go again, but probably aim to sit at the bar during brunch, or go with a larger group to be sat at a table instead of a high-top in a far corner.
Third time is a charm! Family birthday celebration included 2 granddaughters who enjoyed their brunch menu choices and coloring on the table cover. Adults' brunch menu pleased everyone. Reservation was honored on time. And those fresh house-made doughnuts were a tremendous start to the best brunch in town.
Good cocktails and great steak--particularly the smokey, crusty prime rib. My husband and I had the "sharing platter" of three steaks and three sides (delicious sweet corn succotash, potatoes au gratin, and mashed potatoes), which was good value and very nice.
The atmosphere is a bit noisy for any kind of date night, and the sort of industrial look isn't very cozy, but it was comfortable enough and the service was friendly. It also looks like a great place to hold a larger party, as they have several sizes of back rooms to buy out.
We'll definitely come back for a happy hour some time! The drinks were creative and delicious.
Fun and casual atmosphere with upscale comfort food. The beet salad was good and my crab/ shrimp cakes entree was delicious. I ate everything on the plate. The service was spot on, friendly and helpful. We went here for Portland Monthly Dining and will definitely be back.
Visited for Portland Dining Month. We had a 7pm reservation for 5 people and were seated at the right time. Food selection was great, however, the service was incredibly slow - the server could've consolidated most of her trips and the food took forever to come out. Should've been an hour, at most hour and a half dining experience, but took over 2 hours.
The food and drinks were great. Our server was not very attentive. We went for the Portland Dining Month deal and the server didn't mention anything about it. We were there for about 30 minutes before we could get her to come back and ask her how it worked, making it take even longer to order because we had to figure out our options. 3 of the 4 people at the table had ordered prime rib and it wasn't until we were almost through our first course that she came back and told us they had run out of prime rib. The manager came by and apologized and gave us all a round of shots which was nice but did not quite make up for the lack of communication between the back of house and front of house.
I've been to Brix for brunch and happy hour before and really enjoyed everything. Naturally I thought it would be great for dinner as well. I was wrong. I had the halibut, it was over cooked and very small for the price. I was really disappointed and I won't be returning for dinner in the future. Then of course we were asked to leave because the restaurant was flooding.
The food was average and the service was very slow. This might be because it was part of the 'March dine out month menu', so perhaps they were cutting costs to drive up the number of tables. I just hope their food returns to the quality I remember from before.
Great bar and dining room. Although the restaurant filled rather quickly after we were seated, four of us were able to carry on a conversation without raising our voices at all.
Great beer selections, and a happy hour and main menu that provided many selections. We had salads, cheeseburger, bean burger, 1/2 chicken, and chicken tacos. We were impressed by the service, the food, and the ambiance. . . a great find!
We went for Portland Dining Month experience, our first time to this restaurant. The food was good and plentiful (took home leftovers to cover next days lunch). The atmosphere seemed to have not figured out an identity. Noisy in the lounge/dining area with music and lots of TV's. Area we sat in, as a couple, seemed more for larger groups. Really good waiter, attentive. Glad we tried it, but not sure we would go back as a 60 year old couple, not quite our vibe.
We came here for Portland Dining Month. Nothing that I experienced made me feel that I just have to come back. The food was not great, just okay. We sat right by the pool table, which I felt was not strategically placed. There were some kids playing on it during our dinner which was fine; however, I don't see how it would be possible for adults to play without interrupting tables. I didn't get a chance to try any cocktails. I may come back to try happy hour when certain menu items are cheaper and I will try a drink. I will not return for dinner. I was pretty disappointed.
Loved this restaurant! Went for a date night with my hubby and loved the atmosphere:). This time, we took our two children for Sunday brunch and had a fantastic meal (and a lot of fun). Perfect place for a date, to meet friends for a drink, to watch a game and for Sunday family brunch!
We visited Brix for Portland Dining Month. Most of the Brix menu was available for the 3 course prix fixe option. The caprese salad was tasty with a wonderful balsamic reduction. The fish and chips got rave reviews from some or our party and the "tots" were incredible. Unfortunately the fried chicken wasn't anything to write home about. The pumpkin bread pudding didn't have much pumpkin flavor and the accompanying whipped cream was "off" but the blackberry buttermilk pie was scrumptious.
