“Good food, good service, awkward presentation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

This was our first visit and we were favorably impressed. We each ordered their basic salad which was l a nice salad, larger than expected but nothing special. As an appetizer we had spinach and artichoke dip with tortilla chips. This would have been a good choice if we were just having drinks, but was too heavy to eat along with a regular meal. Our bad. We decided to split an order of chicken cavatappi, which was excellent, with flavorful tender chicken. A single order was more than enough for two people, but could have been served better. It would have been nice to have two empty plates along with the main dish, and a spoon or something to serve with. Instead, we had to shove food from the full dish to the empty one with a knife, slopping sauce and feeling awkward.

“No One Can Eat That Much Salad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

We tried, but the luncheon salads were just too big! They were absolutely delicious...fresh ingredients, great flavor combinations, but the portions were really huge. We have eaten at Bricks before and had forgotten how generous the servings are. Next time we'll split a salad. My husband had the Cobb salad and I had the chicken, cranberry, salad...both had so much flavor...lots of cheese, nicely cooked chicken. Yummy! We started with a Bloody Mary each and they were so good...and almost like an appetizer with the ample garnish of spicy green beans, onions and green olives!

Aside from the great food, we really enjoy the atmosphere...very modern, but with a friendly, cozy appeal. The service is always prompt and professional. A place we'll continue to enjoy on future visits.

“Very casual buzzing atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

There was little choice in Placerville so chose Bricks and wasn't disappointed. The place was full with a great atmosphere if a little noisy. The food wasn't anything to get excited about but that said we all cleared our plates. Service was excellent.
