Had one of their off menu specials, scallops with a light cream sauce. Was way to salty and had the waitress let the kitchen staff/chef know. Normally all their food and sour dough crusty bread is always good.

Menu has been reduced significantly. Quality is ok but not outstanding. My steak was overdone. Servers reply was oh….well I could have him redo it, but it will take a while. No thanks, I would rather eat with my wife rather than watch her eat until my steak is redone. Most wines on their list were not available. Settled for an unknown, which turned out to be ok, but a bit overpriced. Had the hostess coordinator(?) staring at us during the entire time since her tablet was plugged in on the knee wall behind our table. Not a problem, but uncomfortable for a restaurant trying to be upscale.

We had anticipated a better experience. It is nice enough, but not the feeling of a first class dining facility. It is a bit noisy and we were sitting close enough that felt like we were part of the kitchen.
Our waiter was impersonal and in line with a Denny's rather than a fine eatery. Usually passed by as he asked if all was okay. Not bad service, but not worthy of the price line and certainly did not create a great dining experience. We have eaten at Ruth's Chris also at the casino and the service was stellar and experience first class. Even the Cafe at the bowling center is more enjoyable and a better value.
We both had the ribeye and it was okay. Again not the cut expected for the location and underwhelming. This was a first time at Brio and it did not compell us to make reservations again, maybe just a to go order if we give it a second chance.

We were disappointed by our service, surprisingly. Felt like he paid more attention to the nearby four tops, than us, two people sitting at a four/five person booth (not our fault the hostess sat us there). He also made a sexist joke that i didn’t understand but my husband explained it and i brought it up with the server who quickly apologized and said he didn’t know it was sexist.

The food was cold I told them I had a allergy to onion and they still brought my food out with onion on it. Had to send it back then they got it right but my husbands food was already cold by the time it came back. Then had to send back again because my steak was not done. My husband was burnt. They need to train there cooks. The server was the only thing that was good in all of that.
