The salmon was tasty but the asparagus was not warm enough. The food service was a little slow; there were not many diners that evening.

It seems is under new management: more expensive, very reduced menu, less quality and the new servers are really annoying

It has become a struggle for this Brio. 20 minutes to get first service, long wait to get food, second round of drinks, gave up after a while, warm beer, waitress did not know that I could possibly get garlic and olive oil with my pasta. Kitchen hustling to keep up with a half empty place. Dining experience is lacking good vibes. Food was passable. Time to remodel the rundown look of an italian castle or move on.

It was obvious that Jacob was new to serving at Brio's. Sweet but inept. The manager wasn't much better. She delivered my friend's bottle of Perrier without a glass and did not open the cap.

WORST SERVICE EVER!!! It took thirty minutes for the waitress to tell us that the bottle of wine we ordered was out of stock. Our appetizers came out stone cold. Our dinner was hot and tasted great - only reason I gave two stars for food. That kitchen/food line manager works his butt off! As for general manager - she was AWFUL. The table next to us sat without drinks - not even water for over 30 minutes - and that was after they got up and complained to the manager twice! At the end, we were charged two bottles of wine - the one we originally ordered and didn't get, AND the one we drank. Mind you - the restaurant is only at 50% capacity. I don't think they could handle a full restaurant. We went there because it was our first date 12 years ago, and it was our anniversary. BRIO ruined the night. We will NEVER step foot in that restaurant again.

Food was better than I expected. Ordered the NY Strip and was surprisingly good. Bisque was tasty like I recall. Shrimp Eggplant appetizer has shrunk since last visit pre-pandemic. No more flat crackers in the breadbasket. Food overall was good.
Only issue was the service. Took 30+ minutes for server to take our entree order. She said she was waiting for the appetizer but they had a person expedite food and a food runner (or another server) actually brought our app to the table. Server seemed inexperienced. I was looking for her a lot as was other tables in around us. Many tables were closed in section for social distancing, so I can only presume server is relatively inexperienced. However, she was polite.
Overall seemed like visiting a new restaurant where staff is working through a learning curve.

We sat outside and the restaurant was not very busy. I’ve been to this Brio many times in the past and always had great service and food. I ordered the ravioli do bello( mushroom ravioli). Waiter came back and informed me they were out of it so I switched to the pasta brio. The waiter never served us the complimentary bread before the meal even though we asked for it. Two seconds after we were served the appetizer and salad—they brought our entrees. I told them we weren’t ready for entrees yet. When we did get our entrees again after finishing the salad, I could tell they were the same ones as before(not fresh ones). They were dry from sitting under a heat lamp. They should have re-made them. My wife’s salmon salad had a pencil in it. They didn’t even offer to remake or comp it. The waiter could care less. Too many errors in one sitting to justify going back any time soon.

We ate outside because it was a nice night. The chairs are ALL ripped and in poor shape. For an upscale restaurant this is unacceptable. I ordered a Filet medium rare, that came out well done. The waiter Jose, who was excellent, said they picked someone else's steak. Not even 5 minutes later they brought mine, but it was very rare. Another 8-10 minutes and I got a perfect one. No manager came over to apologize for 2 badly cooked steaks and that's my main peeve. Mistakes happen, but not to own up and apologize, is unacceptable in my opinion.

Unfortunately both my shrimp and my wife’s salmon were very undercooked, shrimp translucent and salmon center totally raw. We used to love Brio, so we didn’t want to complain, but we let the manager, Dana, know.
We didn’t ask for anything, but the 20% he took off our check really didn’t work—we had to go home and cook for ourselves on our one night out!
BTW Shrimp Diavolo should NOT have Alfredo sauce mixed into it. That was yet another let down:(
