The service was very good but the food was mediocre at best. I would go back and sit in the bar and have a drink as it is quaint but as far as the food - nothing to write home about. Other better places to eat in my opinion.

First of all, the service is amazing at Brix 25. Jacey was our server, and she was so knowledgeable, and remembered us from past visits. Every time we go there the menu is different, and it never disappoints. I have wine, and it was incredible. The meal was outstanding.

Brix restaurant at the previous location was once our favorite restaurant in Gig Harbor and then slowly their food and service changed and we stopped going. So it was with some apprehension that we tried their new location in Gig Harbor. We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely return. The atmosphere is not as quiet and romantic as the previous location in that the new building design is more open and brighter. But the view is spectacular. We had a early dinner appointment so it was not loud and noisey as it might be when it is full of clients. The menu is new and exciting and very uniquely prepared. To our surprise, Thursday night has select bottles of wine priced at 50% off.
So it was great tp see Brix 25 back and up to their previous reputation

We have gone several times at other location and at this Location.

I was there celebrating a milestone Birthday for my sister which was visiting from LA.

Service was great, food Trout and Brazinio fish was quite salty.

The noise level was off the charts, truly we had to leave after finishing our meals, it’s a shame because we wanted to stay longer but the noise level was unbearable .

Food was great...only slight complaint was that one of the two appetizers kind of missed the mark as it was not warm by the time it reached the table, but tasty, nonetheless. The service was personable and friendly. I saw other reviewers note that the service was unfriendly and cold, but that was definitely not our experience. I felt the meal was a great value, as I’ve paid double the price elsewhere for lower quality food. I will definitely go back.

Staff wasn’t overly nice. No good bye on our way out . The feeling was a bit stuffy. I would of liked a little laughter and lighten up staff! It wasn’t the experience of dining I was hoping for. My husband and I talked about it and felt the same way...so-so. It could of been so much better with a little effort of fun.

Food quality and service excellent. Wine service excellent. Ambiance excellent. Food portions were scant. The appetizer was shockingly small, the entree was very inadequate and the overpriced dessert was about 4 bites. It all tastes good, but be prepared for a high bill and still be hungry.

This was our first visit since the move to the new location. While we could not fully appreciate the waterfront location because of the darkness, It was obvious the the staff has not missed a beat in the creativeness and quality of the food and the attentiveness of the wait staff. Can't wait to return!

We’re there for Valentine’s Day so expected it to be a bit different. It took us 2.25 hours for dinner...seemed like a long time. Service was good. Food was good, not great.
Need to perhaps try it again when it isn’t valentines day

Not a Good experience for me, much much too loud. The service was very good, however my food was bad and I didn't eat but one piece of the Beef Bourgenuion. The searing tasted like burnt and the inside texture was like mush. The sauce tasted like a barbecue sauce. I was expecting vegetables, but expected more than a medium sized (strawberry) carrot cut in half along with 2 shallots, at least I thought they were shallots. My son had the lamb and said it was good, but not enough. From the menu I wasn't aware that I needed to order ala carte in order to have a complete meal. To your credit my meal was removed from the check along with a round of drinks.
Thank you for giving this opportunity to express my unfavorable experience and the resaons for my unkind answers to the survey questions.

I'm older, Brix 25 is probably considered quite hip and I'm not too hip anymore. Nice people and good location but I didn't think the seating was too inviting. Wife tells me it's what's in now. Fancy drink menu of drinks you'll never drink again, so that's kind of fun but of course I'm a go with the classics guy. The arugula salad was great, my wife liked her beef dish but it looked somewhat small to me. I ordered fish, good but rather boney. Younger crowd, people on dates. I'll admit it, I like a little more cushy seat, drinks a little less expensive and a tad more food. However, if I was going out on a date I might suggest Brix25. I think women like this atmosphere more than men. I said yes on my recommend because I think Brix25 deserves to be appreciated, they work hard, but it depends on what you're looking for if you choose Brix25.

First of all, the people are so nice and the service was amazing. They greet your table with a pour of sparkling wine to start, which is a nice touch. The appetizers were good and they had a beet soup that I wish I could replicate. My son and husband were pleased with their entrees but mine had sat under the warming light a little too long, which impacted its flavor. The staff tried to convince me to replace it and when I didn’t, they comped the desserts. They really did try to make it right. The atmosphere is average and the chairs are terribly uncomfortable. Lots of hard surfaces make it a bit noisy. If you go, go during the light hours so you can see the water. If not, it’s a fairly dark hole out the windows. All in all, I’d recommend it. Good folks doing good things!

Wonderful location and delicious food. The restaurant was situated with a wonderful view of the marina and easily located on the main road through downtown Gig Harbor. I highly recommend the Mushroom Risotto starter - deep rich flavor with a mix of mushrooms. The boeuf bourguignon was amazing and on par with meals I've had in France.

We loved the food even though all portions were small. The noise level is totally unacceptable for a restaurant of this quality. The wine we picked was okay. Great wine selection, we just picked one we hadn't tried before and we were disappointed. Our server did ask our opinion of it since it was a new addition to the wine list
