“Brought Back Great Memories”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I am a Dedham native but have been stuck in the South for 42 years. My wife and I returned for my 50th high school reunion in Sept. and we met four of my friends dating back to grammar school and their wives at the Brickhouse. It was a Thurs. night and the place was busy; we had made reservations for 9 of us and no one rushed us. The drinks, food and service were first class. The prices were very reasonable. The wait staff was most personable and the manager stopped by twice to see how we were doing and if we needed anything. It reminded me of the Italian Kitchen and Washington Gardens restaurants in Dedham which are both gone now as far as the quality of food and service, but the furnishings are much nicer. If you want a nice meal in a nice spot at a reasonable price, this is it.

“Wonderful Dinner”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

If you like great tasting food, large portions, and attentive staff this is your place. The Brickhouse dinning area is on the small side..so I would recommend reservations if you plan on arriving during peak hours. We were there for an early dinner, without reservations and were seated immediately, but the place filled up quickly. Our server, Tracey, was very attentive throughout the whole meal. The bartender made an excellent Manhattan per my husband. They also have plenty of wine to choose from. Our food was fresh, hot, and excellent! We plan on visiting again soon...

“Service doesn't get any better than this!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

After a delicious meal (the marsala sauce, especially, was amazing) in a warm atmosphere with a prompt and pleasant waitress, our car got stuck in fresh snow on an incline across the street. We simply couldn't budge. Out of the cafe came one of the other waitresses (no coat) and the manager to help. Eventually the manager and my husband freed the car, but not until there had been much shoveling and a lot of strenuous pushing of the car uphill. Everyone was so kind, so helpful, so generous with their time and musclepower. Thanks Brickhouse...your waitstaff and management are fabulous!

“Eat here before they go bankrupt”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

It would seem to me that it is not financially possible to serve such terrific food (everything -- starting with the bread and garlic-infused oil, was excellent) with such gracious and attentive service...and plenty of free parking besides. They kindly saved the table for 20 minutes even though it was crowded. Note that on weekend nights they will ask you to "turn around" in 90 minutes, which seems like the least you can do given all they provide at such a reasonable price.

“Wonderful Italian Food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We grew up in New Jersey which makes us snobbish toward Italian food. We very much enjoy the menu and service here. They do a perfect job with the quality, portions and service. We really enjoy this restaurant.
