Very limited menu - only four mains to choose from. Lamb was reheated on barley and given it was served in a really large bowl rather than a plate, one member of the party thought it looked like cat vomit. Salad with the prawns had far too much pickled ginger and two of the party couldn't finish it. Whilst service... More

We visited Red Brick with a group of friends, a mix of locals and visitors from out of town. The service was poor, with members of our group having to go to the bar to get a drink on more than one occasion during dining. Cutlery was not provided for sides dishes etc. The menu was very compact but did... More

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience with us, as I was the one who served you I agree you didn't get the best service as I was spread a bit thin. This is no excuse, however our restaurant is in Alexandra not Auckland we are very quiet during the winter months and we rely on bookings to decide... More

We were a table of four and we shared the wild duck confit and breads with antipasto. There was lots to go around and it was all tasty, especially the confit. We were impressed with the wine choices and all tried glasses if different wines. I tried the seared salmon for my main and the others had the lamb and... More

recently went to the Red Brick for lunch..was very disappointed not only with the meal but also with the service. after waiting a considerable length of time for our meals, when they eventually arrived they were cold... on mentioning this to the waiter he seemed most uninterested and no effort was made to rectify the problem. OK maybe I made... More

It is a real shame to hear you did not enjoy your experience with us however you ordered "marinated mushrooms with orzo, feta, spinach and walnut salad" this is how it reads on our menu. There is nothing to suggest that it is a piping hot meal. What you got was exactly how the dish was intended, exactly what is... More

This very simple little restaurant has one of the best menues we have found in the Otago area. We could choose anything on the menu it is all so interesting, the food always superbly cooked and presented This... More

We were staying in Clyde and decided to dine on Saturday night in Alexandra. The first café we tried was busy so suggested we try the Red Brick. We arrived with no booking but fortunately we got the last table. We were so pleased we did as this is the best restaurant we have been to in a long time!... More

Wedding anniversay, yummy wine in beautiful glasses( not those thick glass ones you often get wine served in!!) steak absolutely cooked to perfection- medium rare; I prefer Veges to be included with meal , even on the side, rather than ordering separate. Was a quiet night in so we could chat quite freely without next table overhearing!!! Keep it up... More

Glad you enjoyed your evening with us, Good to see people appreciating decent stemware, it really makes a difference. Most restaurants these days do not include extra vegetables with their meals, it is no longer cost effective in todays market. Thank you guys for your positive review. We need more local support like you! More

I went by myself and enjoyed a very nice chicken pasta lunch with a healthy glass of sauvignon blanc. The following day two other family members joined me. Food and service was very good. No complaints aside from perhaps the type of music being played which did not sit that well with my 82 year old mother in law. Good... More

We made a last minute decision to go out for dinner in Alexandra, and discusion suggested the Red Brick was the place to go. We needn't have worried about booking as even on a Saturday night many tables were free, which was surprising as the menu was modern - with sharing plates, mains and desserts more likely to be found...
