The service here was excellent and the food was pretty good as well! Steak could have used more seasoning but the scallops and desserts were excellent! Wine and cocktails were great as well!

I took my wife there for her birthday and we had a fabulous time. From the minute we arrived the staff was attentive but not overbearing and the food was outstanding. The fact that the dining area is separate from the bar and the bar is glass enclosed made the noise level well within acceptable levels. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back.

WOW! Chef Owner Ashwani Ahluwalia knows how to create the perfect combination of an eclectic menu of delicious food for everyone, warm ambiance and superior service. Then wrap all of that in a wine theme that is like a trip to Napa. What's not to like? Hands down one of the top restaurants in NOVA. That is no exaggeration. Brx is that good.

I met a friend for lunch. We hadn’t seen each other in quite some time and ended up spending over 3 hours at the table. (uncrowded time of day). The food was delicious and the waiter didn’t hurry us in any way. Very pleasant and pretty place- I’ll go back for dinner!!

Nice enough place for a neighborhood eatery. They are proud of their wine list I think, but I thought the wine was priced too high, particularly for a casual place like this. The waiter kept suggesting bottles that were over $50. We went on a Thursday and the place was mostly empty. There are too many items on the menu for this place to do them all well and keep the food fresh. My burger tasted like the patty was frozen It was extremely dense, like it was formed in a machine. The fries were just warm, like they were cooked a while ago, but they tasted OK. If friends wanted to meet there, I wouldn't say no, but I would not chose this place myself.

My wife loves her birthday dinner. I appreciate the Chef asking who's birthday it was when we were being seated, made the experience more personal. I will be coming back again, the food was great as well as the presentation.

Food was very good. Scallops and steak Diane were excellent. Ribs were very good but Jerk sauce was not spicey. Cocktails and wine selections were good. Love that they offer “individual” desserts. Service was excellent. Our first time here and will definitely be going back.

My husband and I went here from the recommendation of a family friend. We enjoyed the food, but there was a graduation party inside and we had to maneuver our way to our seats through the party. Then, we had to deal with screaming children from the party running, playing tag around our table until the couple next to us complained and their parents seemed to come out take little control of the situation.

Needless to say, we'll be sitting at the bar next time if we decided to give BRX another chance.

This was the 4th time eating at the restaurant and all 4 times i have been disappointed. I have several food allergies and have been very specific as to what I can or cannot eat. (Gluten, dairy, eggs etc) I ordered a salad with just lettuce and cucumber with grilled chicken with only salt and pepper. That part they got right. I asked for balsamic vinegar and oil which the brought and i proceeded to put on the salad as normal. The first bite thought tasted funny but yet familiar. So i took a second bite and realized that it was soy sauce instead of balsamic vinegar. I am not sure how you make that mistake. As it turned out it was not gluten free and i paid the price for 24 hours until I was able to clear my system. They did waive the price of the salad but didn’t help the after effect. They need to get the waiter to listen to what people are asking for instead of just rushing to take the next persons order.

Each of the proceeding 3 visits there were similar issues and on one occasion i just didn’t eat. I only have gone because some friends like to go. However, i will never go again nor book reservations for our group.

My son and I went for Mother's Day dinner. The restaurant was crowded, and we had to wait even though we made a reservation. We were ultimately seated in the noisy bar with lots of distracting TV's, and it was not to my liking. I was not offered the free glass of champagne, despite the fact that I was there with my son. The food was not great. The French fry appetizer was large and good. The falafel sandwich was horrible. It was a very thick patty that tasted like uncooked minced vegetables. The ribs tasted really old. The service was rather poor -- had to call several different waiters to get bread, place an order, etc. Not one of the better experiences that I have had there. :-(

I booked a 2:30 reservation via OpenTable, but when I went to the Brx website, I noticed that the restaurant had posted there would be two seatings (10:30 and 1:00) and the restaurant would be closed at 3:00. So, I called and they graciously honored our reservation time and said that they would stay open as long as necessary to ensure everyone was satisfied. And that's what they did and then some! The buffet was beautiful with wonderful breakfast and dinner food, including a carving station with roast beef and lamb, and large shrimp cocktail, as well as a generous and varied dessert station. Not only did we enjoy the buffet, but the staff was extremely pleasant and service-oriented and they made us feel very welcome and very special. I would recommend this restaurant for both the food and the experience.

A close friend and I had dinner at the restaurant. We have been friends for almost 30 years and we live in separate parts of the US and abroad so we don’t see each other very often. First we did a nice walk at Riverbend Park and then had dinner at the Brx Bistro and had a great catch up about family, life, etc. It was a wonderful afternoon and we decided the Bistro would be our spot when we get together.
