Our server was terrible. She left empty glasses on our table, would not clear plates, didn't ask to refill drinks. Also brought our salads out with our entrees. She said they would remake our entrees but then when they were brought out, they were cold. The manger was nice and covered our meals for the inconvenience and poor service. But all in all, it was not a good experience.

The food is delicious and very well prepared. For some entrees, the portion is a little smaller than expected. The ambiance, cleanliness, and service all met expectations very well. Overall, I highly recommend.

Wanted to give it one more try but the food quality has gone way down lately! Their lemon chicken wasn’t tasty at all, Chicken was fried in egg with no breadcrumbs! Broccolini wasn’t that fresh and was hard to chew on! Appetizers were okay: calamari was a bit salty, but flatbread pizza was good, and their steak salad was okay...

Food was not good. Restaurant was very dirty, silverware had dried food on it. There was a area for drinks and the computer and there was a ton of trash up underneath it. Server only took order and brought check, other staff took care of refills and bringing out food.

The waiter was only fair. He did his job but didn’t put any effort into it. He never asked if we wanted a dessert, he just ask how we wanted the bill split up.
I ordered a white peach sangria. I’ve had these in numerous restaurants. They always have a mixture of berries and fruit in the glass. The sangria that I got here had no fruit in it and when i ask about it the waiter brought me a toothpick that had a cherry and an orange slice on it and said they no longer put garnishes on drinks. I guess the restaurant doesn’t understand what a sangria is, which was disappointing. I enjoyed the food that I got but it was not the best experience I’ve had dining out.

We had fabulous service in the beginning, after placing our entree in, it was 45 min and the food came out cold with the sauce dry. The manager made it right by having hot dishes made.

We dine out several times a month. We have not tried Brio since they have changed hands. So, Valentine’s Day we decided to give them a try. The atmosphere was great. The service from both management and our server James were simply outstanding. He came back to our table no less than 6 times to check with us. Management was behind because of carry out orders and management came to our table to apologize. We told him this was no bother at all for the delay and that we were thankful they were so busy!
The food showed up momentarily. It was fantastic. So, add Brio to your list. They earned our business and this will be on our list to return back If you are lucky enough, request James, he will take great care of you. Thank you for making our Valentines Day very special!

What happened to Brio? Always considered it to be one of our solid “go to’s” for dependably good food. Got a salmon salad. Salmon was fine, but salad was a pile of brown iceberg lettuce. No more olive oil with the bread, which also is different. When we asked our server what beers were available he said he didn’t know because he didn’t work at that store. When we finally got an answer my husband ordered and got the wrong beer anyway. We gave a decent tip anyway because the poor food and training is not really his fault. We expect this place to close soon.

It took a while for our service to acknowledge our presence, it brought the bread, we didn’t realize that we had no utensils so literally broke bread off and smeared in the butter, finally someone noticed and brought utensils and napkins. Food was ok, not hot. Overall a disappointment.

Not the level of Brio standards we are used to. So disappointed that they aren't serving their seeded flat bread in the bread basket anymore. Waitress was not at all attentive. Not very many guests but it was mid week.
