    Our group of 6 all enjoyed the food, as we celebrated my 65th birthday. We all agreed the noise level was annoying, and the service could have been better. This was our first visit to the restaurant, and perhaps we would return on another occasion. The cost of the entrees were in line with other quality restaurants in the area. The server was friendly, but waiting 10 mins for steak sauce to accompany my meal was a bit much.

    Great food and super service. We have grown to consider Brio our "go to" restaurant among the many fine restaurants in the area. We get good food, can have good conversation, and then go to Drury Lane for a play. Great evening!

    We had a group of 6 to sit in the bar and have apps and drinks. The music was great, but a little too loud for us to hear each other, so our waitress was so accommodating and was able to move us to the couch/fireplace are where we could talk. Very much appreciated!

    It has been a couple of years since we last went to Brio. My wife and I dined there last month and yet again this past weekend. The menu is much smaller than last time; food does not have the same distinctive flavor as before...I had veal milanese and the veal was very thin and cooked to the point of being tough. With a smaller menu, less distinctive taste, wait staff forgetting items both times we were there recently, and the restaurant was not hardly full on a Sunday night....has all the makings of a restaurant in trouble. Too many good restaurants in the area to return to Brio for a third time.

    We enjoyed our lunch at Brio even though it was a bit crowded. Our waiter had some difficulty but made an effort to give really good service. The outdoor area was pleasant and comfortable. Favorite dishes were the Shrimp Mediterranean and the Steak with roasted vegetables.

    We've been to Brio a few times before and booked it this time for our anniversary. We made notes in the special request box to be seated at a quiet booth away from the door and kitchen. In the past these requests were honored. This time we were seated right next to the kitchen where it was loud and noisy. The only other table they offered us was two tables away from that spot. We took it, but had to scream at each other all through our dinner. Also, my salmon was raw in the center. Great dish but the piece was so thick, it was actually raw in the middle. The waiter brought me the wrong sized salad and charged me the higher price too. Sadly, the anniversary dinner was not so special. Probably won't return any time too soon.

    Simply, The best food you will ever eat. Every appetizer, main dish and desert are amazing. The service is very good and the servers went out of their way to find out if we were celebrating a special occasion. We were, and they put a little lit candle in the desert. Very nice touch, good service, great food. I'l be back again very soon.

    After a bridal fitting with my daughter and her bridal party for their dresses Brio for lunch was a welcome respite. I've been to Brio for dinner but never for luncheon. The menu is excellent with lots of lighter and regular lunch portions, excellent wine selection and refreshing cocktails. Everyone enjoyed their menu choices and said the lobster bisque was to die for. The dessert choices (if you still have room) are excellent and range from smaller to the very generous and delicious Torta di Cioccolata. Service was excellent and although Brio can be a little noisy, when we dined (towards the end of the lunch hour) helped to minimize that. Brio has never disappointed and I'm looking forward to returning. Try it..you'll love it!

    The bistecca insalata is our favorite menu item, along with their lineup of sandwiches for lunch. The service is attentive and experienced. We always have the same kind waiter when we go. Although it has a romantic feel with the lighting, they are also prepared for and considerate of children with families. Nice kids menu, they provide crayons for them to color with, and they make an effort to bring the food out quickly. We always have a good, consistent experience here!

    Enjoyed the calamari! Tender and crisp with awesome sauces. Our server team was very helpful with wine selections and food recommendations. They were always "aware" and seemed to visit us right when they were needed. The pork porterhouse was exceptional. No room for dessert but they looked incredible. I'm always looking for places to take friends and they have a wonderful party room for up to 40 (ish). We will go back!

    Brio's food is consistently good. The day we went we found an $8.75 luncheon special menu from which we actually ordered. My friend and I had the field greens and grilled chicken salad. it was enormous! Our other friend had the flat bread and salad, and they, too, were enormous. That said, we all did eat every bit of our lunches. Way to go, Brio.

    I was glad that they had honored my request to have a corner table with less noise. Also, I was glad they had some lighter/low-fat dinner dishes. Food was average. But it was not noisy like some other restaurants on Fridays.I wish they had more lactose-free dishes. Nothing wrong in serving some dishes with wine and butter sauce (most of the folks with lactose intolerance could still handle butter). But I'll go back to the restaurant again when I am going with a group because it is a good restaurants for groups.
