“Bad food, bad service, bad selection”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We arrived on a busy Friday night and were greeted not with a smile and a kind word but with "we don't have any tables open right now". Um, thanks, we'll sit at the bar. My date went to the ladies room, and though I was able to order a beer, she was ignored for about ten minutes after her return, despite the bartenders passing us at least four times and us trying to get their attention. When finally we got their attention, again the service was perfunctory and not at all pleasant, despite the crowd having thinned out since our arrival. Had we not been meeting people, we'd have left. But oh well...

The wine choices appear to be limited to what is made by the owner's wine company, and it isn't good. Two different glasses proved that. And when one glass was empty, the bartender poured a different wine into the same dirty glass. Seriously? I guess if the wine is awful, it doesn't matter anyway...

We ordered a pizza which continued the trend of not good. It claimed to have kalamata olives on it. It did not - they were standard black olives. The sauce on the pizza had a weird flavor of nutmeg or cinnamon - in pizza sauce?

Nothing to recommend here. There was a BBQ truck around the corner that gave us a free sample that easily bested anything we had at Brix/Elevage. I recommend you go there instead.
