    Brios used to be one of my very favorite restaurants prior to Covid. I haven’t been back in a few years, and was very disappointed on this return visit. Prices have gone way up. Some items are 40 to 50% higher than they were 2 to 3 years ago. Service was awful. It took 15 minutes just to get water and I had to get up and ask someone to bring it to us. The wine glasses were filthy and had to be replaced. I asked for a serving spoon that never came. It took an hour and five minutes for us to get our meal after ordering even though we told the waiter that two people in our group had another event to get to. The food tasted good, but the prices did not match the service or ambience of the restaurant. We had family visiting from our of town. The poor service dampened the joy of our reunion and evening.

    The main course was DELISCIOUS! The fresh bread was warm but tasteless. The dessert was very lack luster. Wait staff is all super nice however very little check in service with your waiter for refills. I would go again but wouldn't divulge in desserts.

    Waiter brought the wrong wine to our table and then took 15 min to get the correct wine to our table. He wanted to take our order before we even had our drinks! Service was slow. We ordered a salad with our dinner and they both came at the same time rather than the salad first. He never asked how we were doing during the meal. Food was so so and not worth the price we paid. It was very bright in the restaurant too. A little darker would have been more ambient.

    Service was TERRIBLE! After being seated…waitress was a no-show. After waiting 15 mins…Finally asked host if we had someone assigned to our table. After another 5 mins waitress finally showed up. Wine came quickly…salad and entree also served promptly (by someone besides or server…but plates were almost thrown at us). Plates were also cleared promptly…by someone besides our server. Server was missing again. Never got water glasses refilled…they were empty halfway thru dinner. Never got asked if we wanted desert…never arrived with check. After waiting another 15 mins after wine glasses were empty…we finally asked manager for our check. Restaurant seemed worn over all. Glasses were water spotted. Logo was plate was almost rubbed off. On a positive note…food was very good…salads fresh…entree hot and tasty.

    Not a good experience. Made reservations for a special occasion. Slow / poor service. Forgotten about most of the evening. Food is good but pricey for what you get. No bartender on duty. Told by server that we could order wine only but she would have to get it and then later that she should “get a good tip”.

    It was a birthday I will say that our server was great at getting everyone’s orders, correct OK but was not really attentive since we were on the second floor and I believe majority of her tables were down on the first floor, which is horrible for her. And I will say that the food was not as great as it usually is on this day everything was a little under par.

    Went on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate a birthday. The dining room was fairly empty 6-8 tables of guests. It took us 15 minutes to place and drink order and another 15 or more to get the complimentary bread. Seemed like a long time given they were not busy. Once we got our bread, the meals came out in good time. Everyone enjoyed the selection and their choices. We were not even asked if we would like dessert. The service just seems to be the issue.

    Hard to say a good thing about our experience... Our drinks took over a half hour to come from the bar, our appetizer was burned, they left scallops off one of our entrees that was a shrimp and scallop pasta dinner. The restaurant was at half capacity so staff was not taxed and our waiter did help the situation either. Our family certainly won't be back.

    Staff needs training on how to handle complaints. There was plastic wrap in the beef carpaccio. We told the server, she took the plate and didn’t say anything about it again. Until we were almost done with our entrees, then I asked if she spoke to the manager about it. She said yes she did. I said we wanted another beef carpaccio. I tried to be understanding and suggested we could just do a half order. She then said they didn’t have any half orders left. I said okayyyyyyy, do you have full orders? She said yes, and I said, well we will have a full order then… the manager never came to the table. At the end she asked it it was better than the previous carpaccio. The one with trash in it?! Yes, it was better. A solution should have been offered as well as an apology. Very disappointing.

    The booth we sat in was broken. Just in the dining room on the right, 2d booth. I had to sit on the far side of the seat because the middle was caved in. I should have asked for another seat. I also ordered a Manhattan that wasn't the best. Food however was very good and service was fine.

    Had a reservation at 7, got seated a few minutes after 7, no big deal there. Got sat, and then waited nearly 15 minutes for the server. 2 different parties that were sat after us received waters and bread and we still had not been acknowledged. The server did apologize for the wait and brought us water, but no bread. Also, we had no silverware when the bread did come out and then didn't see the server again for several more minutes. Food came out, mine was good, but my friends pasta was very chewy. We love Brio, but this was definitely our worst experience yet.

    Poor experience. Booked a party of 9 on open table. I wish the restaurant wouldn’t have accepted a large party reservation if they could’ve have accommodated it. Seated 20 min late, fine. Didn’t get waters until after main food was served- after appetizers. Other drinks came later. Many drinks and foods “not restocked since Christmas”. Recommend perhaps avoiding this restaurant during the holiday season?

    This was a very disappointing experience for our family. We had been looking foward to taking the kids to a nice dinner out on the Plaza and frankly were mortified at the level of service (or lack of service) as well as the quality of the food. In the end, we asked to speak to a manager. After waiting for at least ten minutes and the manager never bothering to appear (par for the course - see note above regarding service) we left. You shouldn't pay $30 for mediocre pasta and be treated this way. Do not bother - there are plenty of other restaurants on the Plaza that will give you much more in return for a pricey dinner.

    Took over a 20 minutes to place a drink order and another 20 minutes to get the drinks. Bread was offered and then had to be requested to obtain. Salads were served after main course. Drinks were refilled frequently once delivered, but overall, it felt like we were ignored for the first 45 minutes we sat there.

    Had reservations and was seated about 20 min after scheduled time. Took a bit to get drinks. Had to ask for knife and plates and napkins for the bread. Took about 45 min to get food for five. Had to ask for water refills which took more time. Server was nice and apologized, just overwhelmed I guess. Food was good and hot.

    The bar was closed so no one could sit at bar because there was 1 bartender for the entire restaurant and they were also a server. The were overbooked on the reservations. It took 2 hours for us to get our food and we waited an hour and a half for our drinks only for the server to tell us we had to pick different drinks bc they couldn’t make them. The server was great though! She was the hostess for the night and they had to make her our server bc no one else could do it. She communicated what was going on and kept us informed

    We had a terrible experience for our Christmas festivities, the service was awful, they brought the wrong wine, then we never saw anyone to replace it for 25 minutes, the salad did not come out before the meal. The restaurant was absolutely freezing, we were so cold. This is not what I expect from a reservation I made 2 months ago at a restaurant on the Plaza.

    Poor service and quality probably due to it being the day after Christmas. But service took a long time. Tall glass cups were brought to small children rather than children’s cups. Server forgot soup and salad. Was told we could not order alcohol because the bartender was missing. Food was mediocre. Restaurant was cold. It was disappointing as we were there for a birthday celebration and it was not a nice experience.

    Soon after we were seated our server took our drink order. One of us asked for a Gin and Tonic, specifying a brand of gin which is not rare or unusual. Turns out the did not have that gin and instead offered him a citrus-infused gin that worked well in a Gin and Tonic. We then ordered our entry. The food was flavorful and the temperature was as expected. The service was good and efficient.
