    It was a bit cold inside the restaurant. The food was overall pretty good, but the lasagna was mostly pasta and cheese, very little meat. I've had much better lasagna.

    Unfortunately it was a pretty terrible dining experience at Brio. We were seated promptly but our server didn’t come by for quite some time. Our drinks took about 20 mins to arrive, our food didn’t start coming out for about it 50 mins. Our server didn’t come back to refill water until we were finishing our meal. Tried discussing with the manager on duty and he actually walked away from me initially as I approached him. This isn’t the first subpar experience at Brio and I don’t think we’ll be back.

    My husband and I had our wedding dinner at Brio in Vegas so decided to have our anniversary dinner at Brio in Irvine. Food was good but the service was horrible. We were so disappointed. Nicole our server took our orders we received our food then she never came back to see if we need anything or to check if things were tasting ok. We waved her down asked for Parmesan for our pasta that took her 10 minutes to bring back. Not once were we asked if we needed something else to drink. Appetizer and salad plates were left on our table while our entrees we’re brought out, when my husband asked the server to take the plates she said “wait a minute “ It was a slow night so no excuse for the poor service! When I spoke to the man who said he was a manager he looked at me with a blank look, no apology no offer to discount our dinner. After I spoke to the “manager “ our server never came back someone else brought our check. HORRIBLE! We will not return!

    The food was superb and our server was excellent, but I was embarrassed when they would not accept their own Brio gift cards that I bough from their own website just 3 days before. I tried calling their corporate office, but there’s no number to call. Not sure what to do.

    Their pasta dishes were good but their choice of salads were not. I had a choice of three salads: lettuce wedge, chopped, and Caesar. I had the chopped which was soggy Iceberg lettuce and way too many onions. My husband had the Caesar which was Romaine lettuce and tasted like mayonnaise instead of cheese. I would have liked a nice fresh spring mix.

    It used to be so much better under the previous management; we were regulars. We decided to try it again, but were disappointed again. The soup was too salty, but they comped it. The salad said field greens, but included head lettuce! No more avocado. The whole app system is gone; the new one is disappointing. We probably won't be going back.

    Very poor experience at this restaurant that we ended up leaving before we even sat down. Upon arrival, there was no hostess to greet us. After 10mns, a cook came out to check on us and let us know our table will be ready soon. 5-10mns later, the hostess came to greet us and check on our reservation. She told us the table will be ready soon and then disappeared. After another 5-10mns wait, we decided to leave the place. We observed some sitting guests had been waiting for quite awhile without being attended to. We understand there is a staff shortage in the restaurant industry, but usually the host/hostess is setting the expectation right away. I understand it is complicated for the restaurant owners/managers.

    Part of the pasta was still cold. Service was lacking with misprinted ticket orders and inattentive service. Utensil had touched butter/ cream which spread on thé table before any food was brought out. Alcoholic drinks took 20-30 min and was brought out after food. The table waited and looked for service for 5+ minute and saw the server talking to chef in a casual conversation.

    Well the heating was out so it was a bit chilly (nobody said anything until we asked why it was so cold). We ordered salads with our main course, but they didn't come before our main course so we had too cancel them. To their credit they were clearly understaffed, however we had an early reservation and there were only 3 or 4 other tables and our waiter wasn't ....... shall we say attentive! All in all it was very disappointing

    Food was mediocre at best. Service was very friendly but slow (not his fault). Took almost 2 hours for 1 appetizer and 2 entrees. Pasta was dry and asked for more sauce and was charged $2.50 for extra sauce.

    We went to this restaurant solely for the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We booked an early dinner time a month in advance at 4:30pm. When we got there we were told 1) they were out of mashed potatoes 2) they were out of the roasted autumn vegetables and 3) they were out of the pumpkin pie. My husband wanted to walk out of there immediately but it was Thanksgiving night and we had nowhere else to go. We were given broccolini for a substitute vegetable, which neither of us likes, and cheesecake for a substitute pie, which neither of us can eat because of acid reflux. We paid a lot of money for a dinner that was not all what was advertised. We were hugely disappointed. Never again will we book a special holiday dinner there again.

    Was disappointed that we were celebrating 2 birthdays and they did not acknowledge them. It was on the reservation. Was going to say something to the hostess but no one was there. The food was very good but they always clear the table and rush you out even when there aren't guests waiting. The noise level is high and makes it difficult to hear each other.

    We dined at Brio early on Halloween evening, so had the restaurant almost to ourselves. The happy hour offerings were very good, and a terrific value. The Gorgonzola crusted lamb chops were excellent. Dennis, the bartender, was terrific. We look forward to returning.

    I have been a patron of Brio Italian Grille for many years. Much to my dismay our server lacked communication skills in both English and understanding simple request. As we found out she was the only server for the night. After having only 1 of 3 drinks served to us after 20 minutes and nearly wearing the drink, we left and dined next door. I now have a new favorite restaurant at Irvine Spectrum, thank you Brio for your terrible service as I would never have discovered a new dining establishment.

    Great food, warm bread, carpaccio is massive and delicious. Chicken Marsala was super tasty, service was good but a bit fragmented as the server was doing one thing at a time instead of multi-tasking. Overall nice dining at Brio.

    Food was just ok. The best items were the lamb chops and the salmon, but the pasta was not very good, which was surprising. The lasagna was strangely creamy, and none of us liked it. Highly recommend the Capri Sunset Mule! Service was friendly too.
