We were there on a Thursday night so it shouldn't have been that busy, but the wait staff was really hustling to keep up with orders. Our waiter couldn't have been nicer, but service was slow. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and a cheese...More

Visiting Carlsbad on vacation (from PA) and stopped at the Yellowbrix for dinner. The food was superb. Had the Brussel sprout salad with steak tips. (Pecan Beer from Sierra Blanco Brewery was also really good.) Usually I don't care for desserts at a restaurant (because...More

My wife and I really enjoyed this place. We sat outside in their garden area. We weren’t real hungry so we split the pork chops. Two good sized chops in delightful bacon apple sauce. Awesome! Came with two sides. Wife had salad and I had...More

This is a great restaurant. I was in town on business and met some friends who are locals here. They don't have a huge menu but they do have a variety. We had the spinach dip and calimari for appetizers. Both very good. The spinach...More

Nice atmosphere and good food. Little pricey but good! It has indoor seating and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is in a courtyard that is nice for evening dinners.

Very good food, quaint little building but very well kept. The food is a little pricey. If you want a nice, quiet place to eat, I recommend eating here.

Cute little place with a great outdoor sitting area. Live music was starting when we left. The food was very tasty. We would definitely go back again if we were in the area. Staff was pretty friendly.

The food was decent, ironically the best tasting dish was the children's mac and cheese. The steak tacos are like street tacos and the steak was a bit overdone, but okay. Service was slow. The patio is really nice and inside has some unique features....More

So sorry we missed this. I saw it a while ago, but it was a few days after Christmas anyway. But, in case you are still curious, we were not open.

We do serve wine based alcohol cocktails. Though they are a bit lower in alcohol content, many people feel they can't tell the difference.

I am sorry, but shrimp are very costly and so most people do not opt to add it to salads. We think $7 for 4 descent-sized grilled shrimp is a pretty good deal. Again, these are not typical "salad" shrimp (the baby tiny... More
