Dined on April 22, 2016

Our waiter, Jeffrey, was knowledgeable and attentive. The carrot soup of the day was delicious. Our entrees were all very tasty, swordfish daily special, shrimp and grits (nicely spicy), and green pea gnocchi. The lovely macaroons were delicate and light for a nice finish to the meal without sending us over the edge. The portions were generous.

We have been to 20 Brix many times and never been disappointed. Our Daughter was home visiting and we gave her the choice of where to go. The menu has changed which provided some new opportunities. The food was excellent. Although portions are a bit small. The wine list is awesome and Clay does a great job of helping to pair a nice reasonably priced wine with the dinner. Check out the new Macaroons on the desert menu. NICE!!!!

Spring Menu Winner Winner

vip
Dined on March 25, 2016

We heard they had launched the Spring Menu so we had to give it a try. That is what we love about this place, the menu is ever-changing with the availability of local ingredients. For appetizers, we enjoyed a delicious Mussells dish and an Avocado Toast that was so tasty. For entrees, I had the Ahi Tuna (amazing) and my daughter had the Steak Frites which was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed Millers Macaroons for dessert (really good). Always a delicious meal here, highly recommend.

Dined on March 5, 2016

This is the third time we have been to this restaurant. The first two were great experiences. We were very pleased with our meals and their extensive wine list. This time we took my extended family for my mom's birthday and our meals were not consistent. The pork chop was super fatty and it came with gnocchi that did not pair well with it., My husband and my sister had the ahi tuna and did not care for it. Will have to hear better reviews before we go back.

Dined on March 4, 2016

A nice neighborhood restaurant with an interesting menu, a cozy atmosphere, and a good wine list with different selections and price levels. There were three of us and we had the lamb meatballs as a starter (saucy and cheesy in a good way), a good salad, the tuna, strip steak, and striped bass special. All were good. The plating and the flavors were on a the messy, comfort food side, but all in all satisfying. The server was very friendly, which pushed the overall experience to very good.

Excellent Service and Delicious Food

Dined on February 14, 2016

We braved the snow on Valentine's day for a 5:00 dinner reservation. So glad we did because it was well worth it! The service at 20 Brix is excellent, the food is absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly, and the wine list is incredible. They made my husband and I feel welcome and were thorough in explanation of the specials and the menu. I had the Tuna - it was wonderful. My husband had the crab stuffed skate and it was just delicious - melt in your mouth and seared perfectly. We had appetizers, drinks, the meal and desert - and didn't feel rushed at all. 20 Brix is exactly what we have been looking for in a romantic place to dine. We used to drive all the way to Yellow Springs for Valentines Day, until now. This will be our new spot not only for Valentine's Day or special dinners, but we plan on being regulars even if just for drinks and appetizers to get together with friends. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, great food, no rush and great location - we highly recommend it.

Okay, so without going into some long song and dance I will get to the point. The food here is EXCELLENT! I had the grilled beef tenderloin and my husband had the shrimp and grits. I am a small person and ate every last bite. I honestly could eat the shrimp and grits for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Even the salad was incredible! This is my new favorite place!!

This was our best experience ever at 20 Brix. Chef Paul introduced us to his amazing hebi ceviche as an appetizer, the beef tenderloin and fluke specials were so delicious, and creme brûlée and macarons were the perfect dessert. Our waitress was on the ball (and actually makes the macarons herself)! The wine recommendations were perfect, too. This was a great and romantic night out!

Excellent meal, extensive wine list

Dined on February 13, 2016

20 Brix is an exceptional foodie and wine lovers haven in Old Milford. The atmosphere is relaxed and romantic. There were diners in dressed up jeans and cocktail dresses, golf shirts and suits. It's not stuffy or pretentious... just, simply, excellent. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. The lamb meatballs are out-of-this-world, and perfect as a shared appetizer. My beef tenderloin, and my husband's ribeye, were perfectly cooked. We're looking forward to dining on their patio this summer.

20 Brix is our go-to restaurant for special occasions and it never disappoints. The food is always fresh and well prepared with large portions. The ambiance is romantic. The service is friendly and attentive, but does not make you feel rushed. Extensive wine list. Definitely one of the top restaurants in Cincinnati area.

Had a great meal off of the winter tasting menu. Service was a little clunky. Salads came too soon after cocktails. No time to sip and chat. We had the chicken and waffles and 20brix burger. Neither could finish so asked for it to be boxed for Saturday lunch. Disappointed to discover that the amazing fries did not make the doggy bag. Oh well I guess the 4-5 I had eaten were enough. Next time I'll open the bag before I leave. Macarons were a terrific end to dinner

Huge Hit

Dined on January 31, 2016

We took some friends here for the first time and it was their birthdays. Started with the Vineyard Pizza, which I dream about. The combination flavors are superb! Then we had Shrimp and Grits, Chicken and Waffle, Grilled Ahi with a side of the Fried Brussel Sprouts. We all kind of shared and the only dish that I didn't really care for was the Chicken and Waffle because I thought it lacked flavor. Everything else was extraordinary. Service was good, not great and the restaurant was very crowded with big tables, so it was kind of tight quarters and extremely loud. Our friends loved it, and will definitely go back.

The food was excellent, and it was enhanced by having a great waiter who was very eager to make sure we had a good experience. He also had extensive wine knowledge, and after describing the type of wine we like he was able to pick varieties that fit our taste. It was a great experience.

It's about the wine, not the food. Expensive

Dined on January 28, 2016

Brix holds itself out as one of the finer restaurants in the Cincinnati area. It is very expensive, which would be appropriate if the food and service were uniformly excellent, but they are not. Some items are very good and comparable to the Greenbrier, a food paradise. However others are very disappointing. A steak had gristle and fat throughout so that many pieces could not be chewed. None of the steak was enjoyable. This is unacceptable for a place this expensive. I have had much better steaks at chain steak houses. Entrees should be uniformly excellent at this price level. The steak fries and bisque were cold when served. Other food items were very high quality, so on the whole the food is uneven. The service is good but not great. Adequate would be the word. Sometimes slow, even when few were in the restaurant, with food arriving cool, or long waits for more wine. Wine selection is very impressive, as is knowledge and helpfulness of wait staff in this area.
