We went to Brio on Easter Sunday
It was a disappointment.
Service was slow and our waiter was non engaging
Never asked us if we wanted appetizers.
I had to flag him down to take our order
The food was not great
My salmon was good but the potatoes and asparagus were so hard I couldn’t eat them
I like Alderney but this was so yndercooked

We come here often. Today, we had a great meal (sea bass special and beef medallions special) HOWEVER, we sat at high tops at the bar for over 2 hours and the two bartenders left a pile of crumbs from the previous diners there. Disgusting. And they looked at several times and left it. More concerned with socializing. If I’m paying $30 a plate it should be clean.

Burnt food, strange combinations on the plate that were not explained or mentioned on the menu. Also a very stressed and gnarly waiter that although we allowed over 2 hours and 15 minutes for our meal before a performance nearby, he still did not have time to serve us dessert.

Celebrating grand-daughter’s 15th birthday, the family & birthday girl insisted on Brio one of our favs when in Naples for Easter..
Hostess was pleasant and sat us quickly giving us the option of inside or out. With the wind & chilly temp we sat inside. I had a view of the chef working the pass and I sent him my compliments.. he was doing a great job as the dinning room was busy.
Our server Don was great. Never leaving a glass empty for long. Food was tasty & hot.. Birthday desert was a chocolate surprise. They closed our local Brio’s so this made it even more special.. keep up the good work..

The table service was very poor and unexpected. We’ve been to other Brio’s and had good experience, but not this night in naples location. The waiter was very slow bringing our ordered drinks, taking our order and following up on us during the meal. Our finished dishes sat on our table a good 10 minutes. When the food was delivered, the person ask us “you need anything else ?” Kind of bizarre. No fresh parmesian offered or crushed pepper over our dishes. The waiter did check back when I was more than half way thru and asked if I wanted any. cheese. It to little to late to me. This indicates poor training and a very poor reflection of the manager in my mind. The food was just Ok, nothing very special. All in all a pretty bad experience. Also, I never write reviews and often let minor lapses in service slide. Hard to ignore these.

The food was nicely spiced and the menu offered a nice variety of items. The kitchen was very accommodating in changing sauces on a menu item to address omitting the dairy for one of the entrees. We sat outside and it was a beautiful evening so the atmosphere was really nice. The restaurant was very busy so I can assume that the waiter is typically a bit more customer friendly and personable on a normal night but it was lacking that evening. Overall, the experience was enjoyable.

Brio is one of my favorite places to have lunch with friends or out of town guests. However, this last visit, my favorite chicken salad was very bland. It appeared to not have any dressing & when I asked for more, they didn't bring it, & I had to ask again. The wait staff was very rushed and seemed stressed. I will chalk this up to it being season here, and it's been a tough year for everyone.

My wife and I had lunch outside on Sunday. The ambience is nice, albeit adjacent to the parking lot. The food was good, we both had salads and both enjoyed them, nothing special but good. The mushroom soup was outstanding. They only had 1 selection of Sauvignon Blanc wine and that was low quality. The service was not great. The waiter was gruff and rushed and gave us the wrong bill to boot. Not sure we will return.

Don’t order chicken Marsala. Brio took previously grilled chicken breasts and scooped on some prepared Marsala sauce. Dry chicken and almost no sauce. Mashed potatoes good as was asparagus. Pepperoni flatbread good. Ernesto offered poor service, took about an hour for entrees to arrive. Table next to us complained about service and their waiter called them a...holes. Bad form on all accounts. Avoid!

We started with 2 cups of lobster bisque and 1 cup of the mushroom soup. The bisque was tasty but there was no lobster pieces. The mushroom soup was good. One person had a Gorgonzola crusted 7 oz filet ordered to cook medium. It was closer to rare - medium rare. The broccolini served with it was undercooked as were some of the fingerling potatoes. Another person had the Grilled Salmon Fresca. The flavor combinations were amazing and the salmon cooked to perfection. The asparagus was hard and difficult to cut. The third person had the shrimp and lobster fettuccine. Very tasty, decent shrimp, but very meager on lobsters. The only dessert was their creme brûlée. Quite large and deep, but ice cold. With only one cocktail, ice tea and a Diet Pepsi, the total cost including tip was $175. I don’t think this was the best value for our meal. Although they have a great porch area for outdoor dining, the interior was a bit disappointing. Service was adequate but not exceptional. No one came to check on how the meals were, was the steak cooked correctly, no offer of fresh ground pepper, water, etc. All in all, an average dining experience that didn’t seem to warrant the price. We will not return to Brio when there are other places close by that have better service and more reliable food.

Our waiter gave recommendations, took our order quickly, and brought our drinks to the table. We have eaten at Brio many times and both have our favorites, Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, the menu was very limited. We ordered based on the server's suggestion. I ordered the lamb chops medium well and my wife ordered the beef medallions medium rare. The server then brought bread and butter while we waited for our entrees. That's when the problems began. My wife cut into her beef medallions (there were three) and two were almost well done - the third was perfect. She Chose to eat them anyway. I cut into a beautiful looking chop and it was RAW in the center (not quite medium well)! I called the waiter over and he immediately took it back to the kitchen. Five minutes later the manager came to our table carrying my dinner and waited for me to cut into a chop. This time it was perfect. Dessert was almost a disappointment. My creme brulee was just slightly better than acceptable, but my wife's cheesecake was very good. Neither was delicious. Inb the year or so since we hade eaten at Brio the food quality has gone from excellent to mediocre. The service, however, was excellent. This meal was not inexpensive and my wife and I agreed that we would not be going back until after the pandemic. Hopefully the food will be back to their pre-pandemic quality. Meanwhile we will be going to their sister restaurant, Bravo, to see if there food has stayed as great as it ever was.
