BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

Not that many customers in the restaurant @ 6:45p on a Tuesday evening.
Entrees were delicious and good size portions.
our server seemed to be put out when we asked for anything and I would not consider myself a "needy" customer. Basics; salt, pepper & water refills . She made me fell like I was bothering her. This happened to be a business dinner and guests were from out of town. Not sure i would come back again or at least to this location because of service, not because of the food.

Ordered wine and evisdently the restaurant just has goblets to drink your wine. What happened to regular stem wine glasses? Nothing like holding you wine in your hand and warming up the wine.
Food was good but for spaghetti and noodles the price is a little bit high.

Restaurant was crowded. We were seated about 15 minutes after reservations. It took a long time for waitress to take drink orders and longer to bring drinks. Bread was gone before she brought drinks back. Ordering food was easy but the kitchen also seemed to be backed up. Took a long time to get food and Half of our meals came out about 5 minutes before the rest of it. The area was very smoky like something was burning in the kitchen as well. The food was delicious as always. They took care of the cold salmon by taking off the Bill. Service and setting was mediocre which is disappointing because we have been there many times prior. Hoping just an anomaly.

This experience was okay. The service was just really slow after we were seated and orders were taken. It took almost 45 minutes for us to get out entrees. Our app portions of it was over salted and one of our entrees the sauce was split so it didn’t look appetizing. For the prices paid I think the service and food could have been far better. Everything tasted good, but quality could be improved.

We made a 2 pm reservation. Arrived time and was asked to wait 10 minutes so our server could get caught up. We were sat at 2:10 and left at 2:25. Either our server forgot about us or they were still getting caught up. BTW- A table that was sat after us got waited on right away and there were only 3 tables

The ambience is awesome.

Food is okay. Margarita Flatbread is not so good. The Bread with Spinach Artichoke dip is very crispy, I wish it was slightly bready.
The Pesto Primavera pasta is good but lacked any salt. After adding salt it tasted very good. The quality of food is very good.

Drinks:
Ordered a Italian margarita with tequila, it tasted like lemonade. Didn’t find any alcohol in the taste. So I complained it to the waitress and ordered another margarita with Gin tonic, it had a lot of alcohol as if the whole glass is filled with only Gin. Overall it was a not bad experience. But for the price we paid, we expected a much much better service.

With it being a very busy Valentine’s Day weekend I expected poor service but it was the complete opposite! The staff was amazing and we didn’t have to wait long to be seated or receive our food, which was delicious by the way. I will definitely be back to eat at this location.

Reservation was at 7:30 and confirmed! Got to restaurant to find they had overbooked and there were TWELVE couples ahead of us! So rude to do on Valentine’s Day! At that point we just had to wait over 45 mins for our RESERVED TABLE. Very disappointing!

We had a reservation at 7:15. We arrived on time and the hostess did not acknowledge us for 15 minutes. When she finally did she was unfriendly said she would seat us soon. Almost 10 minutes later we decided to leave. They desperately need customer service training. Will not be back.

We Were seated on time. Sat in back area for over 15 minutes before a server graced us with her presence. We ordered two alcoholic beverages and a water. Another 10 minutes before water and bread were delivered. No alcoholic beverages. Gave her our orders. She said drinks will be right out. I ordered the wedge salad and lobster and shrimp fettuccini. My wife ordered a flatbread. 10 to 15 minutes passed. No server, no drinks, no salad. Two couples that were seated after us had already received their drinks bread and salads. They received entrees as we were leaving. My wife found a manager and told him what was going on and that we were leaving. He offered to handle the orders himself. We said no thanks. This is the first time that I have ever left a restaurant when this has happened. They were not that crowded. You could go on open table and get a reservation when you arrived. A party of 4 walked in without reservations after us. They were told 45 minutes to an hour wait. I told them to use open table. They had a reservation immediately and thanked me. Like I said the restaurant was not that busy. On our way out we walked by the party of four. They thanked me once again for telling them about open table. And yes they were already enjoying their entrees.
