We had a wonderful meal at YellowBrix! It was our first time visiting here and we didn't know what to expect. We were pleased with the warm welcome we received as we stepped through the door. The evening just got better and better. The atmosphere is upscale yet the food is for adults and children. Our meal was fabulous and... More

I've eaten at a lot of smaller, off the main drag places and after reading the reviews I was pretty hopeful. It's good food, don't get me wrong, but I was expecting a bit more than what we got. Service was good, wine and beer list is long. All plusses. The prices were on target for what I am used... More

We are regulars at Yellow Brix for both lunch and dinner. Went earlier this week and I decided to have the stuffed pablano since I had not tried it in a while. In a word...awesome!! I'm usually a steak and shrimp guy or salmon but I will definitely be having the pablano again! Can't get it anywhere else in Carlsbad... More

We stopped for a late lunch and, WOW, were we happy when we left! Food, drink and service were all outstanding. I had the poached pear salad with a homemade dressing, and it was so good. So was the sangria. We returned the next night for dinner and had another outstanding experience. Both of us ordered the pork chop which... More

We were leaning towards Southwestern food and asked our server for a recommendation - and then followed it. One order of the beef tacos and a chicken enchilada. Both were delicious and we were happy with the choices. We had the creme brûlée for dessert and that is a LARGE portion (about twice what most restaurants serve). Not as light... More

Service was slow for 2:00 in the afternoon. Only 4 tables occupied. Meatloaf was dry and shrimp pasta was seasoned very hot. They forgot one side dish and had to make it so I was half way thru my meal before it arrived. It did not live up to recent reviews. Disappointed.

When you charge $15 for 1/2 a chicken, you should know that you have to brine the fowl for a good result. Started vacuuming the restaurant while we were still eating in the dining room and for me that is the bums' rush.

We have traveled to Carlsbad 3 or 4 times to see the caverns and this was the best food in the town. The restaurant staff was very friendly and the prices were reasonable.

At first appearance it didn't look like much... just an old home that had been turned into a dining place...and hardly any parking. But as soon as we walked in, saw the white linen covered tables and the menu. Well... then we were worried about our attire... we had, after all, just been to the Living Zoo (worth the trip)...
