    Food was great as always but there was some horrible odor that kinda smelled like dirty diapers. We couldn’t place where it was coming from or if it was an employee.

    Very attentive server. I had salmon and it was over cooked and dry. I asked for it medium. I have had this dinner many times and never had over cooked dry salmon here before. The three other guests were pleased with their dinners.

    It’s really hit or miss there anymore. We keep trying it every few months and more times that not, we leave disappointed. I think we’re pretty much done trying after last night. Their pretzel chicken and spaghetti with meatballs are always good. Other meals we’ve had seem like cafeteria food - overpriced cafeteria food. That was the experience last night, even their fries where soggy and not hot last night.

    Food was good. Service was fine. The facility was in bad shape. Floors were not swept. Sinks were dirty. Bathroom floor sticky. Walls need repainted. Chair was rickety. And the paper menus being reused were wrinkled wth dried food stuck to them. Enjoyed the food but eating in my car would have been a more sanitary experience.

    Short staffing resulted in horribly slow service. We had concert tickets after the show. I felt sorry for our waitress--she had the whole dining room. We were there at 6 p.m. on a Tuesday night and she told us there was no more bread left. No more bread left. What? Noise level was more than energetic. It was hard to hear at my own table. My husband said his dinner was good. My dinner, beet salad, was poor. When I want a beet salad in Kent, I'll walk across the street and order the far-superior Laziza version. (I would have eaten at Laziza had it been open. I foolishly thought I'd give Bricco one more chance. No bueno.)
    Bricco - KentResponded on December 6, 2023
    Our sincerest apologies. All the restaurants in Kent have been really slow lately, part of the reason many have been closed. We had an abnormal amount of walk ins last night resulting in us being busier than any Tuesday the past few months. We apologize if service was slower than normal and will address the beet salad with the kitchen. As far as bread or any other product, sometimes we do run out of things as we have fresh products.

    Everything was great for the most part! But I would suggest not selling the brussels sprouts as they were soggy! Every place I go to with crispy brussels sprouts are amazing so I was very disappointed! We only had a few bites and I was Shocked that our server didn’t ask why we didn’t eat them. Otherwise, food was okay! I will say I had Higher expectations but I understand things can happen. I will plan to try your place out another time! Thank you!!

    The cocktails were tasty and our server was great. The food was awful. Italian nachos were cold and oily, pizza was doughy and no flavor, scallops were chewy and overcooked, risotto was broken and the butter was pooling on the plate. I would not recommend this place.

    I ordered the pretzel chicken and it was dry like the Sahara desert. Dry potatoes, dry Brussels sprouts. My date had the chicken parmigiana, also dry dry dry. The chicken was way too thick. FYI chicken parmigiana is way better when it’s thinner, pounded flat. I will say the new fall drinks were amazing though. Very disappointed ☹️

    We had 6:00pm reservations for 2 on Saturday and tickets for a 7:30pm concert about a 5 min walk away. Upon arrival we were promptly seated and service was very friendly and efficient—credit to our server Samara!! We easily made on time to our concert. Oh, by the way, the food and drinks were outstanding. In particular we enjoyed the Italian Nachos and the Salted Caramel White Russian.

    My wife and I had dinner at Bricco Kent prior to a concert at the Kent Stage. We had an amazing dining experience. Our server was extremely professional and helpful. We ordered the Risotto appetizer and Salmon entree based on our server's recommendation and it was outstanding. Also, the house Chardonay wine was an excellent selection at the price point. I highly recommend Bricco for a great dining experience in Kent.

    Our server, Michelle, was very helpful accommodating our needs (wheelchair, gluten & dairy free options), which were included in the reservation. Cocktails, food and service were excellent. Acoustics terrible when it's crowded. It annoys me that Bricco's charged 3% for use of a credit card - the most we've ever seen in our area. While this is not Bricco's fault or responsibility, I was very upset that a car pulled in the one handicapped parking lot right in front of us. Out jumps a woman who did not have any visual limitations and four kids (they left the dog in the car). When I said something to her she proclaimed she had a sticker (as if that made it ok). I let he know I had a wheelchaired person. Put my flashers on, unloaded my husband and got him inside then drove around to find another parking space. She returned and exchanged her kids with a man who was parking in a no parking space! They all went on their way. NOTE to readers: NEVER park in a parking space if you do not physically need it - even if you have a plaquard.

    Our guest’s drink had to be redone more than once, but the server Michelle saved the day and instructed the bartender how it should be made. There was no charge for the error, which I felt was providing Legendary Service. We loved sitting on the covered patio. The food was delicious and we enjoyed our visit.

    This used to be my go to place in Kent. However, since the new owners took over the overall quality has gone way down hill. The drinks, food and service were all terrible. I used to recommend this to everyone, but now I would stay far away.

    Not very clean. Torn and stained menus/ no bar menu. Chairs- stained. The place looks tired. Staff was slow but pleasant when they did get to the table. It was homecoming- so crowded w teens but they were entertaining, not a problem. Drinks were generous- cherry quality lacking in Manhattan. I thought there was too much dressing on my Caesar salad- blackened shrimp was tasty. Husband says his baked penne pasta was a B-.
