It's truly an outstanding dining experience every time I visit, so of course, I had to bring my close friend to check it out. He had the shrimp and ravioli special (LOVED IT). The waitress was very attentive and provided nothing shy of great service. Diana always checks to see that our dining experience was and how my steak was prepared. Thank you for your outstanding service BRIO!

I made reservations through Open Table and never received the points. I called the next day and requested resolution. I was told the Manager saw the reservation and would call Open Table to correct. Never happened.
I enjoyed the food, service was very slow. I would have returned but have decided not to with the poor customer service follow up.

Good food, although we preferred the Tuscan menu over the new coastal one. Wine selection needs to be expanded.

The food was all delicious, but the cream of mushroom soup was a little salty for my palette. Overall a most pleasant dining experience. Thank goodness we dined rather early because the restaurant filled up with families celebrating graduates. They accommodated several large groups.

We had reservations for dinner for 7:45. We got there on time, sat down and got our waster(that was all we wanted to drink) and was told what the specials were. Both of us were real hungry but the server didn’t come back for over 15 minutes to take our order. We got up to leave and the manager ran out after us and explains that the server cut her finger and that they were in the back attending to it.

He apologized and offered to buy our dinner, that was nice. We went back in and had a nice dinner and desert. We will give it another chance.

We wanted a good neighborhood restaurant that offered outdoor seating, was reasonably priced, served a quality meal, and provided great drinks. All were available at Brio. We opted to sit outside even though it was raining because it was too cold inside. Our outside table was next to a party of 8+ people and it was a bit loud at times. Other than that, the evening was enjoyable and we'd definitely return.

I was so excited to see beef carpaccio on the menu at Brio-ordered-it was spectacular. The kale Caesar salad was very tasty and creative. Our meals didn’t disappoint us either-grilled shrimp over orzo and chicken in a piccata style. Desserts to go...yummy.

My guests were impressed with the selection of Brio for lunch. We sat at a round table for six near a window in the corner. It was perfect for conversation. Ariella took great care of us. The menu offered plenty of options to please each one of us and the food was great. I had the eggplant Parmesan that complimented perfectly by a very tasty tomato sauce. My guests loved their food as well. This was the first time I took customers to Brio for lunch and I was not dissappointed.

First visit to Brio's was very disappointing. Bravo's which now closed provided better preparation, quality and service compared to Brio's. Surprising Brio's fell short in so many areas considering the location/market. Numerous mistakes were made in our order and food quality and preparation. Example: Pesto sauce was actually Basil leaves. We were a party of six and all agree, we would not return.

I’ve been many times but not recently. I had a larger party (7) including elderly, adults, preteens, and kids. I picked this locale because I thought it would have something to please everyone. Brio did not disappoint and met my needs beautifully. The service was excellent and a fine time was had by all!

The steak had a liver taste to it. The fingerling potatoes were chopped up and fried into tiny chips. However, the beef medallions were very good. I think this restaurant is better known for their Italian dishes as we have had pasta there before and it was very good. We like the décor and the atmosphere so we may go back.
