Not my first time at Brix, but I guess that says a lot coming back. Beautiful views of the garden with comfortable seating in the back. Servers were again very nice. Really enjoyed the crab fondue appetizer. Love the bread and oil/pesto table starter. My lamb burger was okay. The flat bread was definitely tasty. Thank you again, Brix.

It was terrific to have you back and to hear our service and views were as great as you remembered. I'm glad the crab fondue appetizer is a favorite, and I appreciate the feedback about your burger. Looking forward to seeing you again the next time you're in the area.

All the best,

We have been Brix guests many times. The food and service are good and the views in the back are outstanding. So, a "good" option with nice atmosphere in the back. My last TWO visits were bad and awful. Both visit involved poor interactions with the restaurant staff and the manager. In the hospitality business it's alway best to do what you can to resolve issues like not being able to maintain your reservation. In the last visit rather than trying to maintain this time honored standard, the manager began with "I don't mean to be rude but......". We left. With so many outstanding food options in the Napa, Yountville, St Helena area I'm not going back to this customer service wreck.

Ed, I'm very disappointed to hear we let down a regular guest. I assure you, we do always try to resolve anything that comes up so we can give our customers the great meal they came for. We're very sorry that we couldn't maintain your reservation, but we did do our best. As for the response you received, I will be talking to the team about this. I hope you'll change your mind and give us another opportunity to show you the kind of hospitality we really stand for.

Sincerely,
Valerie K., Owner

We came here for large dinner after a wedding, and I was very impressed with the setup and scenery. The food was average - it's always hard to judge restaurants for their performance for a large party - and it seemed like the dishes weren't equally distributed amongst the tables, despite the staff being insanely present. To that last point, i would say my only criticism of the restaurant was that the waitstaff seemed hurried and detached - I was continuously interrupted from listening to speeches because a waitress would ask about my wine glass (not empty) or want to reach in front of me to put something on / take something off the tables. Although this is to be expected with a large group, it seemed extremely frequent and quite annoying. I would love to come back for a smaller meal, but until then!

This was our first stop after we got into Napa from the airport. I ordered the French dip sandwitch, nice soft toasted bread, needed more meat, though quite tasty, they were a full house . Service was attentive and quick . Wife ordered the salmon which was also good. Prices were resonable for Napa.

We came here for a lunch and wine tasting and it was awesome. The proprietor hosted us outside overlooking the vineyard. The food and pairings were awesome, and she did a great job describing everything and giving the background.
