“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Nice variety on the menu. Excellent wine list. Mussels were particularly good. Recommend for a relaxing dinner, not as hectic or pretentious as some other restaurants

“Wow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We really enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. What a wonderful staff. We felt that our waiter enjoyed to the fullest his work. I had the flatiron steak. Even though it was a little over cooked, it was very delicious. The ambiance in the courtyard is magnific.

Hats up!

“Great food and atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

We were sad that we only discovered this great restaurant on our last night in Vancouver as it was our best meal of the trip!
We had delicious starters of mussels and squid . These were followed by a delicious 4 mushroom pasta dish and sablefish gnocchi. The bread selection was good too and the wine.
If only we'd had room for dessert and time to return !

“A Special Place in Yaletown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Dined at Brix for the first time on Friday. I had been told when I made my reservation that they couldn't promise a courtyard table for my party of 4, but when we arrived, the very cheerful hostess said she had our table waiting! The courtyard is a lovely setting for a romantic dinner for two or a celebration for more. The service was attentive and friendly. We had some excellent wine (both red and white) and the food was expertly prepared. Our party chose the celery/pear soup, beef short ribs, ling cod, duck breast and the pepper steak. Desserts were also tasty. All four of us agreed that the evening was wonderful and we would return.

“Delightful Courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

I haven't been to dinner at the Brix, only a couple of corporate functions. This time I came for dinner with two companions, foie gras terrine, scallops were excellent starters, then I had the halibut, pretty good and cooked just right. Great for a change of pace in the Yaletown dinning scene. I recommend it for a romantic dinner, especially if seated in the courtyard.
