Insect Invasion (not allowed to say the C word. got flagged) Big insect gross!!!. Lets put it this way ..Eating there last week. (the Insect) jumped on bar, bartender swooped it up as though he sees it all the time. Lights were on there was a large amount of people at the bar and the (hard shelled insect) WASNT SCARED!! Pretty brave (insect) or is Brick being invaded? You decide.
Great dessert!. Nice ambiance, great music. We just went in for dessert which was outstanding. MUST try the salty brulee. It says it's for two, but good enough for just one to eat! It was rich, creamy, salty and succulent
Good food and atmosphere. Went to brick for the second time since it opened... no more small plates! On both visits the service was friendly and efficient and the food was good. This week, the little gem salad with beets was delicious and the pork pappardelle (I wasn't sure what to expect) was tasty as well. We split the "cheesecake" dessert which was interesting. The cheesecake (more like a brownie - not heavy, creamy like traditional cheesecake) was yummy but the chocolate cookie on the side was blah. Overall good dessert though. The vibe was cool without being pretentious, and it ended up being a perfect spot for our girls night out . Really good food, nice service, cool atmosphere. (not terribly spendy either) - Will be back! (Didn't get to enjoy anything at the bar but the bar itself is pretty sleek and inviting.)
Very small plates at a big plate price. Atmosphere was nice, service was excellent. Food was tasty, but when my dinner came with three very small scallops for the price of over $20 I was shocked! The entire size of my dinner was smaller than a typical appetizer. I left with a big bill and still very hungry. Wont go back
Not a good place to go if you're hungry.
The food is good - not great, and overpriced. The portions are very small. If your going for a lite meal or appetizer with drinks, then I would recommend it, but be ready to pay for a three course meal.
In my opinion; for the quality and the amount that you get....not worth it!
This place should be considered a bar that serves appetizers, not a restaurant with a bar.
Great concept, poor execution; awful wine list.
My wife and I were looking forward to eating at Brick after the many positive reviews, but we were very dissappointed in the food and in particular, the wine list. Very interesting and creative food concepts, such as falafel halibut with hummus, was overcooked and oversalted. The chocolate-salted ribeye was cold. The confit buffalo wings was the only well executed dish.
With the exception of the Carignane by Eric Ross, a fabulous but obscure producer, the wine list was hopeless. The sheepish bar staff knew this and told us to avoid the white wines entirely -- ended up with a Roderer Brut Rose to go with the halibut rather than endure the suffering of a limited and poor selection (shocking for a place with a huge and well positioned bar).
The staff were terrific, but you could tell they knew what was up. Avoid.
great time!. I really enjoyed my experience. The bartenders had great recommendations for both food and drinks. A great SF time!
Chocolate Salt AND Amazing Service. Brick has a very cool interior, fun crowd, delicious food, but most of all, amazing service. When I first went on a Friday night I was suprised by the packed, fun crowd. Since the hostess wasn't able to give us our first choice table, the management made up for it completely. They comped us drinks and desserts and had a really generous and genuine attitude. It made for a fun night for the whole party. I can't stop thinkng about the chocolate salt on the steak. My cod was fine, but the eggplant underneath it was the best eggplant ever. I'd highly recommend Brick as a fun weekend spot with friends or a romantic night on the town with your honey. Give it a shot!
American standards with an innovative twist draw artist and exec alike to a comfortable, art-loaded oasis in the less-gritty-by-the-day Tendernob..
A pumpkin-shaded hybrid of live-work loft and "This Old House"-restored barn, Brick's main dining room is dominated by its namesake, a 100-year-old exposed-brick wall. The space, and where to sit in it, is all about who to watch: table companions, strangers at the adjacent horseshoe-shaped bar, cooks in the exhibition kitchen or foot traffic passing the window seats.
This tasty fare is more than comfort food-plus; the menu of sharable dishes aims higher, and succeeds with flair. The unconventional seared-watermelon salad, the surprisingly elegant chicken wings and the tuna crudo with pickled papaya, avocado, sea beans, kaffir and horseradish are required starters, while Pacific scallops with sweet corn and leeks are moist and plump. Burgers (two per plate, small and perfect for sharing) with fries and curry-ketchup are a solid choice, and a "Coffee and Toast" dessert--mole pots de creme, cinnamon-raisin-bread pudding--ends matters on a high note.
Fun bartender, tasty food!. I've been to Brick twice. Both times the food and service was great! Last time Amity took care of us at the bar. She's very friendly and creative with her cocktails (YUMMY!!), excellent service. The manager was around and was very helpful with good descriptions about the menu. I think it depends on what you order for food size because some of the portions (chicken wings) were very small but other items (salad, pasta dish, ribeye) were a good size. We left there pretty stuffed as well as lots of laughs with the staff! Definitely worth checking out and we'll be back for their 1/2 bottle of wines on Tuesdays.
