Met my parents halfway from Cleveland and cincinnati. 11:15 reservations - restaurant opened at 11 am - bathroom was DISGUSTING! Definitely not cleaned from the night before. Awful
Restaurant was just not clean - the host didn’t even give the correct directions to the restrooms!

Understanding COVID affects all things.
Food menu items were changed in how they were prepared and not for the better, and portions much smaller (except for Lasagna).
Wait staff did not clear dishes, even with multiple visits to the table.
The food was more what I expected from Olive Garden than one of my favorite restaurants.

Our service was outstanding and the ambiance was great. Two of our party of five ordered the Pasta Brio and were unhappy with it. There was too much pasta and not enough sauce, chicken and mushrooms. Everyone else was pleased with their food.

Great management of social distancing and food was good. The restaurant didn’t have a busy crowd but our service was slow and not very attentive. Greeter was friendly and engaging, though did not acknowledge that we were there for a special occasion (anniversary) even though I noted this on the reservation detail. I was very happy with how they set up for social distancing while not compromising the ambiance.

This is one of our favorite places to eat and we will return.

Though relatively emply due to the virus, service was extremely slow to start. Normally they take your drink order right away, but this time it took about 15 minutes before they got around to us. After that, service improved dramatically.

Food good. Price not too bad.

We like Brio and the food that we had was good. The reason the rating is lowered? Even though the online menu indicated they offered 'brunch' food (i.e. breakfast type food), when we were given the menu, this was not the case and that brunch food has been taken off the menu for the time being. We were all disappointed in that because we were all planning on ordering brunch food. We made do (Father's Day and all), but I believe that restaurants need to take the effort in making sure that what they have online is actually what they are offering in the restaurants.

BRIO is normally our go to joint when we can’t decide a place to go. Last time we went it was great. This time not so much. Our server just didn’t seem to care. Sadly,we have had her before with the same reception so at least we knew what to expect. I had to ask what the fish of the day was then next I had to ask the soup of the day. I felt like I was bothering her. We placed our orders with no special request. Wedge salad as a starter with one stuffed chicken parm order and a breaded chicken with pasta. Salad never came but are meals came out looking great. My husbands side of pasta was coated in red pepper flakes to the point he had to stop eating it because his lips were red from the heat. This is a man that loves atomic wings and eats them like no big deal. We both hoped for a side of sauce since the chicken was a lil dry. I was over half finished with one piece of chicken when our server came with the salad. I told her that was ok and we would pass on that. She never returned until we were finished. So no extra sauce and no point discussing the red flake pasta. It truly wasn’t a big deal. She then brought a molten cake dessert to “make up for the salad situation.” OK that was nice but not necessary. My husband took a bite looked at me oddly and asked what is this? I took a bite and thought this is an odd dessert. I then asked my server “what is this we are eating?” She replied “why don’t you like it? It’s Molten cake!” I didn’t bother to reply honestly and let her know it was almost frozen in the middle, hence why we were asking what it was. It tasted ok, strange and rich, but ok I just didn’t know what this chunk of choc was I was biting into. Point being, it was an off night at Brio. I wouldn’t expect anything different Valentines weekend. We will of course be back but not for awhile! Everyone has off days or nights. This location is normally spot on and if you can sit at the bar do it! The bartenders are fantastic and provide great service.
