A word from BRIO Tuscan Grille - Atlanta - Perimeter
BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

    We had a great time the night we went to Brio. The food was really good and the ambiance that night was fairly quiet. The service was excellent and the prices were extremely reasonable for what we had. We had everything from appetizers to desserts and each course was excellent. I like the fact that I am a vegetarian and there are a lot of choices, It is a place both my husband and I can find great selections.

    The employee 's starting from the person that welcomes and ending with the waitress are very unfriendly. When we arrived not even a ""Hi". Then we wait a lot to be served after be seated. During the course for the night we asked several times for water and she never fulfilled our request. Finally we asked another person. Was a very disappointed night . Not worth it.

    This is one of the best and most consistent restaurants in atlanta. I have visited many. This one the service, food and atmosphere is always amazing. My wife and I have had some of our best dates and food here at this location; Perimeter. Everyone from the manager to etc always are working to give there best. We love to sit at Table 22, which is one of the few table located right in front of the large cooking area. Even that close to all the activity of the all the food flying by and all those that walk by. You still feel as though you are never in the way. This will always be the location of where my wife and I love grew. I even hosted a birthday dinner for her here. AMAZING!!!

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    The quality of the food has sagged over the couple of years. The service for the most has hit the skids. Corporate needs to give this location a major upgrade as as the decor & furnishings are really outdated. The servers need a total retraining or find new servers. This location doesn't have the "excitement" as it did a few years ago. The food is still relatively good and some dishes are outstanding. This coupled medicore service doesn't present itself as a fine establishment. One of the biggest downfalls of this restaurant is the loud music that makes eating & talking impossible and annoying. It is best to have low music or no music to further enhace a good meal. At least, the wildlife is happy.

    GreenvilleFoodieVIP
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    I had the soup of the day - tomato bisque - and the harvest salad. The soup was outstanding. The salad was pretty good - not as much chicken as it's had in the past, but still good. And good grief - it was plentiful. Big enough for two, for sure. I've never had a bad meal at Brio and always enjoy the extensive menu selections. Our server could have been a little more attentive - no refills on the water were offered nor did he check on us during the meal - but otherwise, a nice experience.

  • TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    We used to love brio but thus was awful from the time we stepped into the door The manager was rude, the waiter was so slow , food took 50 min to come out and it was hardly Luke warm and the restaurant wasn't that busy. Had to kept asking for refills as we had dry cups all the time especially because if the wait. I had 10 pasta noodles for $15.00. Steak was to be med well on the salad and it was rare after all the wait. The risotto had to be finished he said after we all got ours 50 min later we had a 17 month old that was hard to contain due to the extra long wait the manager needs manners. We had a handicapped person with us and he wouldn't let him sit at the bar to wait. He said the table was reserved. Would not go back or recommend

  • Birthday at Brio
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Dined at Brio with friends for a birthday gathering. We were seated next to the window overlooking the fountain/lake. It was a tad too warm for dining outdoors but the patio looked like a good option in nicer weather. My party shared small plates.....we had the Quattro (4 bruschetta types) and the roasted mushroom pizza which were all fresh and delicious. I had the ravioli and it was divine with a very tasty sauce. The service was impeccable and our birthday girl was presented with a dessert parfait (key lime pie) with a candle on top. It was a very enjoyable evening. Executive Chef Glenn Mills knows what he's doing!

    My Dad chose Brio for his birthday because it is his favorite in Atlanta, but he hadn't been to this Perimeter location. We got a table inside by the window to enjoy the view of the deck outside. Service was attentive and knowledgeable without being overbearing. All of us had several options we liked, and we loved what we chose. Even the leftovers were delicious the next day! Brio is a great choice for people trying to decide between wonderful food (even foodies) and those who feel more comfortable in chain restaurants.

    Brio's waitstaff is gracious and focused on your, personal, dining experience. Not intrusive, but magically There just as you're thinking a re-fill might be nice. Food is delicious, as it is in most quality restaurants, and the atmosphere is Nice People/Good Times--not noisy, just that pleasant, background hum of conversation. Overall, service "makes" any dining-out experience, and this restaurant does service "con Brio"!

    We had another great meal and the food was everything we have come to expect at Brio. We dined with 2 other couples and the restaurant did not rush us. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The Chicken Limone is the best. The only negative comment would be that we ordered the cheesecake and it was not what we expected. It was soggy because they poured some sauce over it and it was not your usual type of cheesecake. We would not order cheesecake again.

    We have been here many times and have had a good experience but this was not up to par. The food was very bland and so was the service. The waitress was trying to remove the bread basket half way through the meal instead of asking ig we wanted more, water glasses were never filled. The deserts they brought out looked horrible. Overall it will be a while before I even consider returning

    Made a reservation at BRIO Perimeter Mall through Open Table to celebrate my new job. When I made my reservation, I wrote in the comment section that I preferred a table by the window. When we arrived, the young lady (Renee or Renata--something similar) escorted us to a table in a busy part of the restaurant. I explained my request for a table by the window, but she said, "All of the tables by the window are reserved". Well, I told her that I reserved a table and asked to be seated by the window, but she repeated the same thing. It kind of started our evening off on a sour note. The other disappointed thing was my meal. I've ordered the Sirloin Brio before and have always enjoyed it until this time. Probably won't go back.
