We enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch at Brick. From the Host/Hostess seating us, to our Waitress/Servers, everything was superb. Food was delicious too. We will continue to dine at Brick on a regular basis. Never had a bad meal there.

Great location with view over the river from 4th floor balcony. Space was a little tight as our table was next to a door that was propped open. Food was great, good selection of drinks and service was very good.

We love medium rare. We weren’t offered anything for our celebration, but had a wonderful evening and we’re too full for dessert by the time it came around. It was understaffed tonight and service was less than normal, but it just reflects the times we Arwen in. Food taste was great and overall evening was just what we were hoping for.

Exceptional salmon Benedict and salads. Likely the best Benedict I have found in quite a while. Excellent brunch site. Of note- menus on OpenTable are not current . Check menu on website if you need the menu. My waitress told me my preselected choices hadn’t been on the menu in over a year…..no worries - much good to choose from
