In spite of a plethora of large groups dining due to a high school formal dance, the Brio team delivered on the experience. William, our waiter, exceeded expectations and the food was delightful.

Large group handled expertly with quick friendly service. From hostess to waiter, everyone was quick to help us and make our visit enjoyable. Several out of town guests enjoyed the Levee and especially the meal at Brio. From apps, to main course and of course drinks throughout, everything was prepared well and a delight to experience. Highly recommended ending to a nice visit to the Levee!

Man that place was disorganized and one employee in particular was dressed horribly with a spaghetti strap top and Lycra pants, not a good look. They were overwhelmed and so much of what we saw come out of the kitchen looked horrible.

The food was good. Our server was very nice. The timing of the food was a little off. The entree's came out when we were half way through our soup and salad. But the server apologized and was attentive. Overall, it was a good meal, but I felt like I was eating at Olive Garden.

The good part is the ambiance, the service, the drinks. I loved the Peach Bellini! On the downside we all went for brunch and all but the Stuffed French Toast (best of the options) are slapped on ciabatta bread…which was hard as a rock and uneatable. We couldn’t figure out if it was seriously old bread or left in the toaster too long but I couldn’t cut it with a regular knife. I usually don’t complain but when the waitress asked we all complained about the bread being so hard. The manager did come by and did take like $25 off the bill but 4 out of 5 of us had this issue. Normally I would have suggested send backs but we had a movie to attend and there wasn’t time. Hopefully this issue will be corrected as a convenient place to eat when at Newport on the Levee.

Service was very slow - once seated we waited at least 10 minutes before anyone even came to our table to take drink order and then took about 15 minutes before we received drinks. Requested appetizer that we never received. Food was good, staff pleasant, just slow. Not sure staffing situation. Maybe they were short staffed.

Went for our anniversary dinner with a few friends. Our waiter was new and very nervous, but did a fairly good job. Food was great, beer was cold and left full and happy. Always enjoy ourselves at Brio.

A place that will satisfy both the carnivore and fish eater in my family. We consider it a good value for the money as I can still get some beef under 30$. Long time since eating beef with inflation and changing(deservedly) prices at our favorite restaurants.
Our service was excellent very attentive with out being overbearing. Our only complaint was the side fingerling potatoes were stiff and not edible. However my plated wedge salad was so huge I didn't miss them.

We had to wait 10/15 minutes for drinks. Waiter greeted us with ( not hello) but we are out of this, this, this, this, and this. After getting drinks he said “ do you want to order before the wheels come off this bus”?. One person requested no mushrooms and everyone’s dish came with no mushrooms had to bring a separate plate of mushrooms for us to share. During our meal 2 trays of food were dropped and our waiter was criticizing the poor waitress who dropped the tray. Probably won’t go back.

We have not been to Brio in a while. We always thought it was too expensive. But this is not true. Most items are under $30, the portions are generous and the wine list is not out of reach. We will certainly return for an encore.

Not very busy so quiet inside. Portions were huge - had to take 1/2 the food home.
Service was good. Wasn't done with soup and food came out so a little rushed.
Not rushed to leave table. Food was good but portions big enough for 2 people.
All in all - not a bad experience. Just ok.

Food was awful!!! We had not been here for a couple of years, but we’re really looking forward to it because it was always delicious. Not this time!!! Absolutely horrible food. Appetizer lobster ravioli was stale tasting and the sauce had a bad aftertaste. The 14 oz sirloin came out a nice medium, but had no flavor at all. The Lobster and crab pasta had very little flavor and sauce was not an Alfredo as said on menu——sauce seemed similar to app and had a slight aftertaste. Spinach dip was decent, but nothing to rave about! Service Was fantastic! Will never go back!
