Best place to eat at the Casino or in and around Cherokee. Often busy, so reservations help.

Thought the menu was nice variety, however, not too much to choose from. I ordered a steak, however, they did not serve baked potatoe with any of the entree's. I was surprised about that. Choices of vegetable was limited as well. Overall, I would go back but probably as a second choice restaurant. Service was very good, our server was very nice, and accommodating to our needs.

Brio Italian Grille is our favorite restaurant at Harrah's in Cherokee. They make all their customers feel special and the service is exceptional. The beef filet I had was cooked perfectly and my husband's Salmon Fresca delicious. The salmon was moist and tender.
We always enjoy having our favorite server, Gio, who remembers all of our favorites, especially my husband's special martini and our wine choice! Thanks for a wonderful dinner!

The service was not great but OK. The lasagna was excellent but the chicken milanese was not edible. Due to the pandemic there are no flatbreads or pizza. Overall it didn't seem as good as before the pandemic.

In my opinion, the restaurant has not captured pre-pandemic food quality. My sister and I have eaten there about five times since Brio has re-opened and we have not had a meal where both entrees were "perfect". This past dinner the shrimp fettucine alfredo dish was below par as half of the fettucine appeared to be over-cooked and stuck together. It was as if the pasta had been prepared and waiting for an order.

As always Brio's did not disappoint but...they changed theIr bread. They used to serve an amazing flatbread with olive oil. Nope, just those damn dinners rolls everyone else does. I was sad about that change. Otherwise still spot on.

I made this reservation for mom who was going to the casino and wanted to make sure she got a meal on time since she is diabetic. Apparently the restaurant has not let you know that they are no longer taking reservations. So why do you keep making reservations for this place? My mom had to wait 45 minutes to get a table. Never will return to that restaurant, would rather eat in the food court!

We apologize your mom's reservation was not honored and appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We absolutely work with OpenTable and may have been busier than expected, however, it should have been accommodated, so we are very sorry and hope you will reconsider visiting us in the future.

We really enjoyed our visit and “meals”. Our server was super attentive (unfortunately, we cannot agree on her name; her initials were KM). We had too much for our mid-afternoon snack so were not really hungry but it was a very enjoyable experience. We shared an appetizer; I ordered a salad and my wife ordered the lobster bisque. We both had a glass of wine. We never felt rushed, even with our small meal. Our server made us feel as valued as if we ordered the most expensive meal on the menu. A wonderful experience!
