Good food! Not too fat, no deep fried... is it NY? The food is delicious, healthy, fresh!

Brick has all the ingredients of a successful local joint -- great and HUGE cocktails, tasty food, nice vibe -- with the added benefit of being a pleasant place to eat (outside) during better weather. While some of their dishes are 50/50 (our fish last night was overcooked), the majority of the menu hits home every time.

Even if Brick wasn't right down the street from me, I'd travel out to Astoria for it! The food really is amazing (and quite unlike anything else in the neighborhood) by any standards, and the ambiance and staff are perfect. I've been to Brick a million times and have never once been disappointed. The penne a la vodka and the chocolate souffle are the best!!!

I normally don't take time to do this kind of thing but after going to Brick I felt I wanted to let them know about my experience. From the minute we walked in to the moment we left it was a great experience. The feel of the place is just perfect-homey, comfortable and relaxing. I tasted several things from the menu b/c there was 6 of us and one thing was better than the next. There were also some pleasantly different things on the menu-foods I'm not used to seeing in Astoria, let alone the US. Whatever your doing please keep it up 'cause I'm definetly coming back.

I finally came out to this place from Manhattan..... I should have stayed in Manahattan.
Loved the decor of the place, however I was waiting for a waitress for about 10 min. Drinks were OK, nothing to rave too much about. A nice crowd was present, and good for a private date

Recently had bridal shower for my sister at Brick Cafe. Great food, cozy space and excellent service. I looked at many other places- this by far was a perfect choice. Looking forward to coming back-keep up the good work.

This is a great place to unwind or meet up with friends for drinks in their rear cafe. But their food leaves much to be desired. Everything is smothered in heavy, greasy cheese and oilso much so that you can't taste the food. There's very little on their menu if you're trying to avoid cheese and oil - not many grilled entrees at all. Food can still be prepared creatively and tastefully without being heavy, greasy and salty. You can't even get a simple mixed green or veggie salad. It's also overpriced for the area - at $80 for 2 at dinner, I can do better at many places in the city.

Too badthe service and the ambience are wonderful, but they need some new talent in the kitchen.

This is "no questions asked" the best place in Astoria. I was reading some of these rewievs and i don't even know what are you talking about. At least 10 times went there and every single time is the same - Exelent- fod and service. I took my perents last week and i got few phone calls over the weekend, they want to come again to " the their new spot". All the best to BRICK CAFE... GREAT JOB ....

Pros: the mirror

My bf lives on the same block so we have plenty of chances to go there but we never go after 3 visits. Yes, their decor is very warming and trendy but their food is worse than any diner food i've had. They make it look 'trendy' by decorating the plates but fish dish was dry and so was the meat. We also tried their brunch too but what a disaster.
Go here if you want some drinks(their wine menu is ok) and some good time with friends but otherwise, cook at home.

Pros: charming, wine

Cons: , food, food

The ambiance here is wonderful, which is why its such a shame the food drastically fails to live up to it. I've eaten there twice - dinner was overcooked and boring grilled shrimp and bland pasta. For two, with wine and dessert, this came to $90. Brunch was a greasy omellete and a passable frittata. The food is simply not good - the chef seems to trying to experiment but doesn't have the skills to back it up. This is a modest neighborhood restaurant trying to be something more than it is, and charging its customers way more than it should for the attempt.

Wineturtle has only snacked so its back to try the grub. Wine has had C-Tails at the bar(SUPRISE!!!) and was happy. B-tender actually can use Boston Shaker in the correct way,rare for new breed of "drink Chefs" . Glasswine was hit or miss but found something or two on the list . Priced equal to the area. Played Bargames with people at the bar and used the stick matches to do those "move thh match to make.....games "Until 3ish A.M. closetime and was not alone .... Reminds Wineturtle of G-Village in the 60's lot of trendy people not knowing that they are trendy...Mayor Mike this place needs indoor smoking to complete the vibe.. will talk on food soon..........

From the moment you walk in to the second you leave you forget that your in New York let alone Astoria. Every detail is taken care of from fresh flowers on every table to the creative menu in both style and options. Friends and I tried many appetizers and entrees so I was able to sample numerous choices from the menu. The waitstaff would ask as they cleared our empty plates if everything was OK? We'd joke saying sorry we hated it as we'd hurry to scrap up any last morsel with the bread from our plates before they took them away. I have come back several times since and have been equally satisfied on each visit. Thank You Brick Cafe for making a neighborhood place such a great dining experience.

A very consistant, well prepared meal in Astoria. Charming decor and friendly staff. They offer an amazing Brunch that shouldn't be missed.

The could improve their champagne choice and offer more by the glass.

this neighborhood was in dire need of a restaurant with atmosphere and brick cafe fit the bill beautifully - and the food is great! it is consistently good and the service is right on. i've had fantastic fish and pasta dishes here and they don't skimp on portions. in warm weather you can dine al fresco. the mood is romantic and candlelit, great for dates. next door is the brick cafe bar where you can go for a nightcap.

I hate being wrong and hearing my lady tell me that she told me so but I have to give it to her.

Brick Cafe is great! Romanticly dimly lit, the meals are prepared with detail and the waitstaff are good looking and friendly. Don't mind spending my money there and it made the old lady happy.

Viva la Brick Cafe!

Just a stones throw outside the city, is the perfect little brunch site. The hostess is a local girl with an infectious smile that makes you feel right at home. The menu has a multitude of temptations that carries you from breakfast to lunch flawlessly. The Brick cafe staff are friendly, efficient and professional. The greatest pleasure is the elegant simplicity... some of the trendier city brunch spots should take a lesson from the borough who knows how to enjoy a meal!!!!

The cafe is airy and bright with a cheerful atmosphere. The staff are professional and friendly. The hardest decision was what to choose of the menu, my complements to the chef! Brick cafe captures the essence of the european cafes... A place where old friends meet, eat good food, drink good wine and create good times. I can't recomend it enough
