We had to wait a long time to get a table that was free the entire time we were waiting. We asked to get some drinks while waiting and were ignored. Food to very long to come. Stuffed Pablano was ok, nothing special, and the beans were below average.

Pretty good dinner for our family of 6. We walked in and was seated pretty fast. It was packed and we went about 5:30. The wait staff was very good. The chicken 1/2 was small and over cooked. The Fettuccini was very good my understanding but that was the meal, no salad. They give us free ice cream which help... More

The first issue was all their small plates end up being sandwiches. I had the roasted pork small plate at a the suggestion of our server. It was supposed to be hot and was not. And it was very dry. My husband had a pasta dish and it was just ok. The server said it was due to the kitchen... More

We dined here 2-19-17 while on vacation to the Carlsbad Caverns. The ambiance, service and food taste and presentation were superb. The owners were working along side their staff. Gluten free options are good. The birthday celebration for our grandson was beyond expectation. Thank you, Aaron, our waiter.

On a girls trip and stopped for dinner at Yellow Brix. Taylor was phenomenal. We'd come back again to have Taylor wait in us again! Burger was to die for!

Passing through Carlsbad on vacation, we found the Yellow Brix restaurant. My husband's said his salmon was the best he had outside of Alaska. The meatloaf was made from quality beef and fabulous. Our waiter, Taylor added to the experience providing friendly service and advice on everything from the wine to dessert. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

A Sunday day trip to the caverns and state park left us hungry for a leisurely, tasty Sunday dinner. We happened upon Yellow Brix, as we drove north on 285 which is Canal Street, and checked TA ratings and the web site. Thankfully, Yellow Brix was open on Sunday as dining choices are very limited in Carlsbad and we could... More

It looks so cool. For reals. Pros While not a huge menu, there is quite an eclectic selection. The ambiance. Good quality food. Our server Aaron was professional and very knowledgeable. Cons The music was very loud. Other tables around us were trying to talk over the radio, so it turned into a shouting match. Ruining the atmosphere. I could... More

Thanks for your feedback, Randall, about Sunday night dining experience at YellowBrix. As you know, not too many restaurants are open on Sunday in Carlsbad, and in addition, we are responding to an early increase in volume of business this year (or perhaps just an unusually robust holiday weekend). As it so happens, concurrently, yesterday we experienced an unusual number... More

We enjoyed sitting on the outdoor patio on a warm evening. There is some highway noise but it is shielded by large plantings. We both had the shrimp tacos which were quite good. Our server was very attentive and friendly.
