Brix is my "go to" spot in Gig Harbor. The food, both preparation and presentation is always spectacular. The wine list is all northwest selections. Check out the "Brix 25" within the list.

Alright, but needs some help

Dined on March 5, 2016

We went last week, and had to stand at the hostess stand for probably 5 minutes before we were seated. The waitress didn't check on us much during the meal, didn't refill our drinks often enough, and we got out food after the table next to us, even though we ordered before. They were audibly complaining about how long theirs took, so I'm sure their order was rushed to shut them up. Overall, the food was pretty good. My stew was extremely dry, but flavorful nonetheless. My wife's chicken dish was far better. Maybe some of the best Chicken I've had. I think in order to justify the price, they need to have top notch service. They're just lacking pretty significantly in that area.

84th birthday celebration

Dined on February 21, 2016

Ambitious menu, lamb skewer starter and small shrimp w/ sesame paste with kobu salad starters were attractive in presentation, ended up to be tiny portion and unmemorable. The pan roasted chicken was well executed and generous. All the other dishes were overcooked. My Thai curry & Coconut steamed mussels were dry and were serve slightly warm, I would prefer juicy and steaming. One highlight of the evening was our waitress was attentive and knowlegeable. Drove from Seattle to Gig Harbor, long drive for an average dinner.

My husband and i do a lot of traveling and a number one must is a fine restaurant to dine at. Not just eat, but taking the time to dine with a wonderful meal and a great bottle of wine. Brix 25 has all that. Great service, excellent food and romantic atmosphere...it is in our top 5 of Best Restaurants we have eaten at...They always accommodate us with our favorite table (33) and greet us with a friendly smile. Excellent wine selection and when we have taken our friends for a dinner out, they LOVE Brix and they also return..We live in Browns Point and its a bit of a drive but well worth it...thank you Staff at Brix 25..

Brix 25 never disappoints, from greeting you with a glass of champagne on through handmade cocktails, excellent wines and innovative starters, entrees and desserts. Everything is tastefully prepared and artfully assembled. We consider Brix a wonderful destination for special occasions - never pretentious and always first-class.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Brix 25. The place is charming, our server was outstanding, and the food was amazing. I saw a few reviews that talked about service being slow, but I loved the relaxed atmosphere. We were able to really enjoy our time and our meal. We never felt rushed or unattended. We loved the Cambozola and Pears Bruschetta, and the chocolate/coffee sauce for our dessert was delicious! We are looking forward to a return visit. This would definitely be a fun place to meet and just have cocktails (which were outstanding as well) and appetizers, or even a little later for dessert and coffee.

One of the best in the Tacoma area

vip
Dined on November 26, 2015

We visited Brix 25 on Thanksgiving. The did have turkey on the menu, plus their other signature dishes. The turkey was really outstanding: Sliced turkey breast, dark meat paté, compressed dressing, and seasonal vegetables. Not your usual thanksgiving dinner, for which we gave thanks. The rest of their menu was also well represented, and we appreciated lamb meatballs starter, mussels and clams, excellent salads, and a really nice celery soup. Deserts were also outstanding. I've heard this is the best restaurant in the Seattle-Tacoma area, and after one visit I'm willing to believe the hype.

Great service, good spot for date or special event

Dined on November 9, 2015

Great service, friendly and attentive. Food mostly excellent, though presentation was a bit lacking. I had the tomato and white bean soup, which I found a bit underwhelming, and the Teres Major steak, which was fantastically flavorful. I liked the bread, and the flavored butters that came with it were very nice. My dining companions had the boeuf bourguignon, which they very much enjoyed - tried a piece and it really did melt in your mouth. Lighting was a bit dim for my taste, and the candle on the table didn't do a lot to alleviate it.

Unique dining in Gig Harbor

Dined on November 7, 2015

Nice touch with a half glass of champagne as an aperitif. The menu and specials are chock full of unique and eclectic ingredients and preparations, so this is an excellent choice for a true foodie. Our filet was a little overdone (ordered med rare but more like med-med well) but the flavor and tenderness were still amazing. Serving sizes are small, which is nice as you can enjoy the entire meal. Excellent wine by the glass selection and the 'Bully' was incredible with my Beef Bourguignon. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. Thank you! Lucy and Jeremy

Excellent dinner at Brix 25 in Gig Harbor

Dined on October 25, 2015

Took my daughter to this place after her soccer game. Gig Harbor is a great little town, and this restaurant fit with the local vibe quite nicely. Exceptional food from start to finish, and cool dishes that struck me as artistic and unusual (i.e. refreshing and new). The speck plate was excellent, my daughter loved her salad, the boeuf bourguinon was the best I've had (our server was correct that it has the potential to be an ongoing reason to go back). Great red wine from a local winery I like a lot, I was very happy.

Dined on October 22, 2015

Slow service to the extreme, they were unable to produce our orders at the same time or even close. One in our party finished two courses while no one else qt the table had even bread. We drank two bottles of wine while waiting (had to hold a glass back so I could have some with food). "A Large party in back" was their excuse to us. At those prices bring in more help when the back room is booked, thats basic restauranteering. Tiny portions. They're lauded for their wine list, thats all they got going for them in my opinion and I can buy those same wines myself and do, for less. Highly dissapointed, still tipped well as always, but not coming back unless its for drinks only while I wait to go somewhere else to eat.

Our first experience at this restaurant became unforgettable . Food with extraordinary flavor, from appetizers to salads to main entree. Portions were right on, not to little, not overbearing. The wait staff offered excellent service, always with an eye on the table, taking care of every detail. With time for social ambiance, the courses were delivered in a timely manner. Wines were recommended with the menu, and were correct with the courses ordered. Overall, a very pleasant occasion.
