Cleanliness was a slight issue for my experience. There was a fallen insect on the table, once brought to the hostess' attention...she brushed it off unto the floor with her hand and proceeded to place dining menus in front of us. Once the waiter came to the table, he returned with two glasses of water, but one glass had leftover food residue on it. The unclean glass was brought to the waiter's attention and a new one was brought to the table.

The food here was really subpar for the prices. Sauces were not flavorful and service wasn’t great even though it wasn’t very busy for a Friday evening. We will not be returning.

Of all my years coming to Brio this was the first time I was disappointed. I picked this restaurant for my birthday dinner with friends.. The food was under seasoned and service was extremely slow.. it wasn’t overcrowded so I’m not sure why the waiter was so inattentive..
The eggplant and shrimp appetizer was delicious but unfortunately that’s was the highlight of the meal. We had to send the spinach artichoke dip back because it was not edible..

The quality of the food has gone down and menu items and recipes have changed. The restaurant was empty, only My party and a party came as we were leaving. We walked through the bar and there was one couple there for happy hour. No one appears to be coming here any longer.

I always enjoy a meal at Brio. This time we decided to dine outside while a band was playing. That was a mistake. I was dining with a longtime friend that I hadn’t in a while. We wanted to talk, not listen to music but the music was too loud. We should have sat inside.

Selected Brio for my sister’s 30th Birthday dinner. Service was wonderful literally things were delivered to the table before I could ask. Food was amazing.. with a large party you worry about food being cold. Everything was fresh and hot and came out at all together.

Restaurant was not busy at 6 PM Sunday but my server continued to ignore me and had to be repeatedly flagged down for more water, grated cheese (which arrived 1/2 way through the meal), dessert, check.
Food was on the bland side, lukewarm, with uninspiring presentation. It is "American Italian" at it's most predictable.

I have a $30.00 gift card but probably won't waste my time going back

We have always enjoyed Brio in the past and decided to have dinner Saturday evening since we had not been in a while.
First off, the restaurant was only about 1/2 full..unusual for a Saturday evening in Charlotte..our server was pleasant but inexperienced. We ordered salads as starters..somehow we never got them (“ kitchen’s mistake”)..?? Apparently she never checked to see what the hold up was. Our entree were tasteless.. one was overdone, tasteless beef and the other was a pasta dish, also tasteless. When I told the waitress that I though the pasta dish was bland, she did apologize. The manager then cam over and said she had tasted that entree recently and agreed with me! Funny that there was not a revision of the recipe..
The server never asked us if we wanted an additional cocktail; never refilled our waters, or replenished the bread basket (bread was delicious..best part of the meal!)
The manager gave us a complimentary dessert which was very nice.
But with all the restaurants in Charlotte these days,there are too many other choices to visit. I am sorry to say that after our recent experience, We will not be returning to Brio.

Don’t waste your money. The service was bad, the food was bland and it was $50 per person. We will not return. Our server may have been on drugs. He would forget what we said right after we said it. He took my order and walked away without taking my husbands order. Two thumbs down!

Going downhill. Good service, but when a restaurant serves salmon over undercooked sweet potato, apologizes, but serves more hard diced sweet potatoes as a replacement, perhaps a menu ingredient fix is necessary. They've stopped offering lobster tail as either an entree or add on. The usual valet parking, which we need for accessibility reasons, was unavailable, even though 4 restaurants in the same circle had it available.
Moving on to other nearby choices.

Service was good. However, I couldn't eat my entree (beef medallions) as the plate it was served on was dirty and had food scraps on the back and old stains on top. I sent it back and whoever had it didn't replace as it was the same plate with old food still on it. Because I don't eat on dirty plates, live and learn, I'm not going back.

First time here in a while, but several problems. Servers were rude, breaking into our table conversation several times pushing for us to order. We thought the food was not up to Brio standards.

7 ounce Filet at $36 was overpriced and was not as good as the price should provide.

Disappointed in the visit.

The portions were just right and the food was very good. The restaurant was quiet inside but it was a Tuesday evening around 7 pm but I never felt that it was empty. I would go back next time I was in Charlotte.

I had lunch with a friend at BRIO on Tuesday. It was not very busy so we enjoyed our meal, drinks, dessert and the atmosphere for over 2 hours. Perhaps that is why our server was a bit grumpy and not very attentive? Regardless my friend and I enjoyed Brio and we would return.

I’ve been to Brio several times and always enjoy it. Last night must have just been a bad night. There were only 3 tables of people in the restaurant and maybe a party in the back too. Our server was the bartender and we only saw her four times during the meal. My boyfriend’s salad was wrong and our lasagna was burnt and black on the bottom layer. The top was delicious and rose’ sangria was also great.
