    I received a text saying my table was as ready 12 mins prior to reservation time, but 5 mins later my guest was told it wasn’t ready. My guest was later seated at a high-top table at the end of the bar area with a chair jutting into the walkway, although a reserved a “standard” table. When I arrived, one host asked the other to look up my table assignment bc her tablet wasn’t working. The second host pushed the tablet to the first and said rudely, “you can do it” and walked away. The first host was unable to find where they had seated my guest 3 mins prior. I found her myself by looking into the dining area. When I arrived to my table, I realized one seat was a banquette and the other was a much higher chair and only about 12” from the next table. I went back to the host to ask for another table. She seemed annoyed, said it would take “awhile,” and we never saw her again. She never came back to move us to a new table so we moved to open bar seating. Bartender seemed flustered and not confident but was proficient. Appetizers and drinks were good but the Strawberry Balsamic Chicken salad was a sad, wet, wilted mess that looked like 2-day old takeout. I had to ask for extra lettuce to try to save the salad from being inedible (see photo).

    Our service was horrible but when the manager realized it he did his best to assist us and eventually cut our bill by 2/3rds. Nice on the wallet but would have liked a better service experience.

    Restaurant was extremely loud. Like a Saturday at Chucky Cheese. It took 45 minutes to deliver our food to the table after eating a salad. When the food arrived the server delivered to wrong table and then retrieved the dishes and attempted to set them in front of us after she added additional cheese while at the wrong table. We told her she needs to prepare new dishes. When her manager asked her if she put the food on anther table she denied doing so. The manager quickly apologized for the service and stated she was new. We were told it would be Another 6-10 minutes before we received our order. Just about 1 hour after our appointment Our food arrived. When it came to the bill. No adjustments or offers to adjust bill or offer to gives us free desserts for their poor service. Will no be going back there.

    Brio came to the rescue. We had made reservations at another restaurant )Royce) only to be seated with no menus or beverages 45 mins later. We felt bad they were so short staffed but made the decision to simply go somewhere else. Insert Brio. We had a small wait but were seated near time and Matt was a great (tolerant) server of our shenanigans. He was incredibly supportive of the staff (Kevin at the bar) and Brio as a restaurant. He was very knowledgeable of the menu (and did I mention tolerant). Great recovery of what could have been a bad evening turned amazing for us as a group!!

    I appreciate that Brio was open on Christmas day. My wife and I are alone on this day as we celebrate with family on Christmas Eve. Our server was outstanding. Very friendly and attentive throughout the meal. We were looking forward to Brio's signature crackers that are served prior to the meal but was very disappointed that they have been discontinued.

    Sadly our waitress was straddled with a large table that received most of her attention. Never received table bread until after receiving our meals, drinks were empty a number of times plus a few other misses. She was friendly and apologetic but left feeling the experience was less than I paid for.

    First waiter. Did not bring bread. He was in a “meh” mood. May not have felt well after taking wine order. We did not see him again. The waitress did not explain about the change. The red wine list was unsatisfactory. Nothing jammy or slightly sweet. The sweetest was a dry Boring Pinot noir. Seriously? The chicken in my pasta dish was not very tender. My pasta was somewhat dry and needed more sauce. My chopped lettuce salad consisted completely of iceberg lettuce. If they were out of Romain they should’ve used spinach which I know they had because my sister specifically asked for it and got it. Definitely not the service and food that I’ve had in the past from Brio.

    Brio was a little noisy but for Christmas week, not having very loud noise was great. The Carpaccio was the best I have eaten. The salad was fresh and crisp and the entrees were great. The service was fast and friendly. Overall great dining experience.

    It was our first time dining here and we have no plans to return. I was given the impression that the restaurant was understaffed as we sat at the bar for about 20 minutes with dirty dishes in front of us from the previous guests and no offer of menus or water from the bartender. When we were seated late for our reservation, the server apologized twice for the wait on drinks we ordered from the bar. The food was good enough to eat, but nowhere near the quality one would expect given the prices.

    Everything we ate was delicious! We had a 7pm reservation, but they did not seat us until 7:15, and the wedge salad ran out so they just used regular romaine with all their wedge ingredients, but other than that an excellent experience. We had the sausage arrabiatta and the penne a la vodka. Both were delightful. The bread was warm and delicious, and the bottle of montepulciano d’abruzzo was great. Service was excellent and noise was low to moderate, even with the Big 10 championship game. We will be coming back for sure!
