“Stunning steak!!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

Wedding anniversay, yummy wine in beautiful glasses( not those thick glass ones you often get wine served in!!) steak absolutely cooked to perfection- medium rare; I prefer Veges to be included with meal , even on the side, rather than ordering separate. Was a quiet night in so we could chat quite freely without next table overhearing!!! Keep it up Red Brick. You are a must-have for Alexandra. We need you!

Glad you enjoyed your evening with us,
Good to see people appreciating decent stemware, it really makes a difference.
Most restaurants these days do not include extra vegetables with their meals, it is no longer cost effective in todays market.
Thank you guys for your positive review. We need more local support like you!

“2 good lunches at the Red Brick”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

I went by myself and enjoyed a very nice chicken pasta lunch with a healthy glass of sauvignon blanc. The following day two other family members joined me. Food and service was very good. No complaints aside from perhaps the type of music being played which did not sit that well with my 82 year old mother in law. Good value for money for my opinion - however - i was told that the previous owners may have had greater variety on the menu. I enjoyed fish for lunch on the second day - they were out of the Blue cod - so I had a butterfish (?) from Stewart Island which was tasty. The wine of the day - a Palliser Chardonnay was very nice. Thank you Red Brick - hope to see you again when next in Alexandra.

“Great place out of place...”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

We made a last minute decision to go out for dinner in Alexandra, and discusion suggested the Red Brick was the place to go. We needn't have worried about booking as even on a Saturday night many tables were free, which was surprising as the menu was modern - with sharing plates, mains and desserts more likely to be found in Sydney or Melbourne rather than a small regional town. While the menu range could not be considered extensive, it was certainly on the mark, and accompanied by a list of excellent local wines. In speaking to the friendly and helpfull wait staff it is clear that locals have yet to embrace this type of dining in their town, a pity, because this place deserves far more support, in another environment I am convinced it would stand out on its own.

“Simply the best food in town”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Smalll town with a large number of visitors, catering for tourists on the Otago rail trail - if you are looking for 'city standard' food, with excellent service, this is the place. The food was outstanding - dare I say it? Auckland standard?
The young male waiter serving us really knew the menu and the ingredients which was really helpful for the gluten free and soya free diets required by some of our large party.
Excellent wine list to match the outstanding menu. I like to see a small number of choices as you know it means one chef working with fresh local produce usually. No bought in sauces in microwaved bags here!
My only disappointment was the situation in a car park, the Formica tables, and uncomfortable chairs. This belayed the fine dining experience, but during the day this is a cafe..

“Best ever”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The food was superb. It was a crying shame that there were only 4 diners, but the staff were marvellous. We will recommend this to anyone we know who is coming to Alexandra.
