Our first visit to this restaurant. Informal atmosphere in a lovely restaurant. Server was knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and very efficient. Our seafood entrée's were superb and the wine list was very good. We will return with friends.

Another great dinner with all four teenage boys. They love this restaurant; they love the food; they love the ambiance. Ash and all the staff totally rock! My wife and I generally don’t ordered off the menu - we just go with the amazing specials of the night. The kids all have their favorites.

The food and drinks were very good(great bartender) Service was very slow. After we ordered and received our appetizer it was all downhill from their We had to wait a long time for our waiter to get back to us to take our order. I don’t really think it was his fault though because he had to many tables to take care of both inside and out on the
Patio. The steak Diane that I had was very good as usual and my wife really liked her scallops entrée. A special desert was bananas Foster’s on a Belgian waffle which
was excellent,😀
On another topic, I noticed later on that the restaurant or OpenTable advised that we would not receive points for our reservation. Can you explain?

We had an excellent dinner celebrating our wedding anniversary. It was unfortunate that a trio of Moms let their children run around the restaurant, jumping in booths and rolling on the floor. It took away from our celebration. The mothers said nothing to correct their children nor the waiters. We were glad when they finally left.

We always enjoy our dining at Brix. The specials are always so creative and delicious. We enjoy the atmosphere and the staff has been very attentive. One of the best features is the wine...house chardonnay is great and the wine selection, in general, is very good.

Always a GREAT meal at BRX! The Chef/owner takes great pride in his work and the staff are always friendly and efficient. BRX is a great alternative to heading to Tysons or Reston Town Center for great cuisine that is also family friendly. GO CAPS!!!

Service was really slow, even though restaurant was empty. Had to wait almost an hour for our lunch which was salads, French toast and pancakes. Although we asked for it bread was never brought to the table. The waiter apologized and gave us a discount but we still won't be back.

We selected Brx from the OpenTable reviews and the outdoor dining area.

First, we really appreciated Chef Ahluwalia introducing himself as we finished our desert.

While we enjoyed the food, the service fell flat. No one greeted us at the hostess stand. After waiting a few minutes, we moved to the dining area and finally caught a server's attention and got seated outside right away.

The bread arrived before the plates and while ordered first, the wine came after the appetizer.

The outdoor dining area is lovely, and we really enjoyed its ambiance.

Very good appetizers. Trout excellent. My friend got the encrusted scallops and was not very impressed with them. A week before that she had the sautéed scallops and they were excellent. My other friend ordered the seared tuna and he thought it was very flavorful. We love this restaurant and will keep coming back.

We sat outside on first warm night of the year. Service by Ben was outstanding. Food was excellent... our favorite was the mushroom soup. The hummus appetizer was equally great. Special was the steak, It was excellent.

We were there for Easter brunch for which they charged $37 per adult. While they food itself was good, it was very overpriced. The selection of "adult" brunch food was limited, and the price did not even include a mimosa or bloody mary. My mistake for not reading the fine print when I booked the reservation, but the $37 price tag was a shock. I suggest carefully researching the offerings for Holiday events before booking. Otherwise, I like Brx, the food in general is very good.

Brx American Bistro is such an awesome find. It is unassuming from the outside and outstanding on the inside. I love the cozy décor with a fireplace and everything we have ever ordered has been delicious. All items are well thought out and well portioned. My kids ages 5,9,13 as well as the adults always find something we love. Brunch, pasta, fries trio, bruschetta, to name a few. Give it a try...you won't be disappointed.

Had a lovely time here after being without electricity for a while. Great decor, spacious, light filled dining room; super friendly staff; happy to let you charge your phone at the many outlets along the bar. Will definitely go back for a lovely dinner - they found the sweet spot of not being too casual and a sports bar and not being too fancy - you can dress up or down. Food was solid, we just had sandwiches but they were nice. Expect the dinner menu would be delicious.
