For the prices I expect a better wine selection by the glass and by the bottle... Employees need to brush up on their wine etiquette, regarding opening, serving a bottle. The $70 bottle was also not served at the right temp... Way too warm. Food was great, bar service left a lot to be desired, but the waitress made up for it, she was great.

We have eaten at Bria several times and have enjoyed it each time. The food is delicious and well presented. Also the prices are not "out of sight". Dustin was an excellant server.

Very enjoyable dinner. We don't get out there often, but always have a good experience when we do. I'm sure the folks in Bellevue love having such a nice restaurant to go to right in the neighborhood.

Really enjoy Bria's. Food
Really enjoy Bria's. Food is always good and very good service. Only thing, it was not kid friendly AT ALL. The pizza's that are on offer are not fitting for their appetite or palate. I'm sure the idea is to make it NON-KID FRIENDLY because they don't want to be thought of as a "family" style restaurant, but they should be prepared to cater for them. The chef was not interested whether our 7 year old was happy or not.

Wonderful, welcoming and delicious!
Our evening couldn't have been better. Great food, including the appetizers, which were perfect for the lighter eaters among us. Among us, we tried it all-appetizers, soup, flatbread and entrée--even dessert. We were all pleased. Attentive service and relaxing atmosphere.

Amazing service !
I had so many special requests for a special mother's day dinner and they executed it like a pro! The ambiance was perfect for an adult crowd. The food was the bees knees! A+! AND our waitress was perfect!
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
lovely birthday dinner
The staff is always friendly and helpful. The food is wonderful and inventive. The menu changes on a regular basis and you should always consider the specials. Don't fill up too much on the warm bread and spiced olive oil because you will want to eat everything on your plate. Think about going on Sundays and Wednesdays because bottles of wine are 1/2 price. We are glad they are in our neighborhood.

Happy Mother's Day
It was a busy evening, but we were seated right away in keeping with our reservation. While it was busy it was not to noisy for normal conversation. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. It is hard to choose from the menu. Everything looks good.
Any special requests were handled without a hitch. Salads and entrees were great. You can't go wrong at Brio. I have lost count how many times we have been there. We have never been disappointed.

As usual, Bria delivers. Our favorite date night for my hubby and I, with a great bar, inventive menu, and wonderful ambience. My 5 yo daughter LOVES this place(with kids, go early in the evening, before the "grown ups" come out to enjoy the night), the PEI Mussel's being her favorite meal of choice, but the secret "kid's menu" is also a hit. The flatbreads are always delicious, be sure to ask for crushed red pepper if you like a little kick, and their specials are always an experience. The wine list is very diverse, with the 1/2 off bottles of wine, mimosa's and champagne on Sunday's and Wed's a happy discovery. Definately recommended for perfect service...comfortable in a cocktail dress or dressy jeans, it is our favorite place.

Great food and service
I organized a large goup (16) after my daughter's graduation. They were flexible with our reservations, which I appreicated since we had no idea how long graduation would be. The service was excellent as well as the food. I would highly recommend!

Hidden gem tucked away in a shopping center. Great pasta & appetizers. Food always good

Bria is a great restaurant in our neighborhhood, it's Consistently Good. Folks from all oevr Nashville should give it a try. It's worth the trip!

Get the Chef's Special
We took our waitresses advice and got the Chef's Special! It was an amazing marriage of flavors: pesto, linguini, summer vegetables, pine nuts and more. It came piping hot and we asked for extra bread which our server happily provided. All three of us literally cleaned our plates. The wines bottles were half price and we selected a Rodney Strong to accompany our meal, but the piece de resistance was the cheesecake with the brandy infused crust and sauce. It was obviously made in house and had that luscious melt in your mouth quality that good cheesecake always has. Again, I would not have chosen the cheesecake because many restaurants provide a cheesecake that has been frozen before. Not this one, it was divine! I will return to Bria!
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
My main dish was a pasta special which included fettucini with vegetables in a wine/lemon sauce. Very tasty! I added a piece of salmon for $8. Salmon was not special. My app was their bean soup which was nothing special. My dinner companion loved his vruschetta app and trout main course!
Weds night proved to be a great deal because all wines are 50% off. I ordered the Amarone which was delicious.
My server was a young lady who was polite, atentive and charming. She could use more training on the menu and wine pist.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
great neighborhood restaurant
I took my daughter here and have eaten here with my wife. They have good service and good food. It is presented in an artistic way yet the portions are very generous. The bread pudding is more than enough to share and is outstanding. Take a date or have a grear father daughter evening.

We had a great time!
The food was great! There were 4 of us and from wine to dessert it was all wonderful. People and atmosphere was great. Very nice Saturday out with our friends. The cheese cake and pasta of the nite was awesome! Will come back!

Will Definitely Return
Loved this place. Very welcoming staff. The food was very fresh and thoughtfully prepared, every bite delicious. Had carpaccio app, beef was so fresh and the arugula salad was the perfect compliment. The eggplant parm was sheer perfection. My husband had veal piccata which he loved. Topped it off with gelato and sorbet, flavors were so interesting and thoughtful, the strawberry port sorbet was amazing, starts off fruity and the port hits you after the sorbet is swallowed. The place is small and very appealing, loved the artwork. They deserve to have more customers in the restaurant than were there. I am certain if this place were in the 12 South region or midtown it would be packed.

We are so grateful to have this restaurant close by. We love the food and enjoy going there for special occassions or just because it's Friday night.

a hidden secret
Bria is one of our favorite places in the Nashville area. The menu is varied and everything has always been excellent. The management is very friendly and is always checking to be sure the guests are more than satisfied. The servers are very professional and make you feel welcome. The bar is a great place to have dinner as all of the bartenders are friendly, attentive and have a never ending smile on their face. I could dine there every night and never become tired of Bria.

Consistently great food and service
Eat here at least montly and rarely have any complaints at all.

Very Good Neighborhood Restaurant
Creative menu while still adhering to many favorite italian dishes. Half price bottles of wine on Sunday a plus. Limited seating so have a reservation especially on week ends.

I was looking for a restaurant and Bria caught my eye. As I entered the restaurant i immediately noticed the bar and more specifically the wine selection. The service was incredible and never missed a beat with helping us with our every needs. The food was exceptional and i honestly could not stop eating until my plate was empty. The wine during dinner was seriously the best i have had in a long time and because it was a Sunday night there had a special where the bottle was half off. Dinner itself was so good that we could not refuse dessert. Overall i would give Bria a 5 stars rating and i have already suggested this restaurant to all of my friends and family.

Good night out
My bride & our friends enjoyed your facility, & will most likely return.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Bria probably half a dozen times, and I've been thoroughly empresses every time! I get something different every time and have not been disappointed yet. However, that does make it extremely difficult just to pick one thing to eat!!! Bria is always enjoyable.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique and in the neighborhood
Went there and really enjoyed the unique offerings on the menu. All the food was great and servers were friendly and prompt. A bit tight on space, but definitely will be a repeat restaurant.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was really good. I got the bruschetta and a salad and my husband got the pasta of the night. Both were very delicious, but I would not say they were worth the cost. The place seemed to just give their dishes fancy names in order to charge more.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten at Bria Bistro a few times. We were less impressed by our dinner choices on this past outing. The food was hot and good, but it was predictable. The service was very good.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and warm atmosphere
I always enjoy Bria! Their menu offers a variety of choices and I have never had a bad meal here. I enjoyed egg plant parmesan which was prepared different than traditional way. The sauce was rich in flavor and accented with olives. My friend had the portabella stuffed mushroom which she said was excellent as well. My usual at Bria is the Veal Piccata. Try their Cucumber Cocktail!. Ask Justin to prepare one....wonderful and refreshing! Bon Appetit! Chef Mary
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bria is an excellent choice for a wonderful night out. The service and food are beyond excellent. The people are friendly.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Bria a few times and the experience has always been consistent, very good and a great value. We will be back again soon.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I found this restaurant only a few miles from our home for the first time. Bria has delicious food and a quiet atmosphere. Good wine list. Servers were pleasant.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I tried the pasta and a flatbread. The flatbread was really good. The pasta tasted kind of bland, but I took it home, and after I added my own seasoning, it tasted great. I'd happily order it again as a take-home dish.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quality of both food presentation and overall experience has slipped from a few months ago. From hostess attire and professionalism to the wine list and wait staff attention, everything is just slightly off the mark from what we have come to expect from this restaurant. Even the bread was routine and cheap compared to it's competitors at this level. Hoping it was just an off night. We will try it again before eliminating it from our favorite place list.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Haven't had a bad meal here
Haven't had a bad meal here yet! Brought out of town guests & they were impressed. Love the half price wine bottles on Sun & Wed too! (The lasagna ROCKS by the way!)

Great Italian food and A+ service
We had mussels as a starter and they were hands down the best ever in Nashville. There were three of us dining and everyone was very happy with their order. The wine was excellent and staff were friendly and very professional. Bria is without question my new favorite for Italian food in Nashville. I am glad that my wife finally convinced me to drive a few miles and try Bria. We were certainly not disappointed.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great, as always!
We go here often. Love it.
Be sure to make a reservation if you go.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love dining at Bria. The mediterainian plate is so delicious we always start with one of those. The menu provides several selections that are all a guaranteed success when it comes to flavor.
