Perfect lasagna! The side salads are huge, and worth the price. The seafood linguine was very good, but the chicken Milanese was dry, pasta dry, and the dish very average.
The noise level is deafening, but it was a very busy night. Service was slow, but our server was sweet; just very busy.

The waiter was horrible. He was throwing drinks and food at us and had our food sitting on the counter for over 20 minutes after it was ready. When asked to speak with a manager, she was handling the situation and apologized for the service and the waiter had the audacity to come over, get in our face and say we were rude and the manager had to pull him back and tell him to leave but he continued to work and wait other tables. I will never go back again.

I have mixed feelings about my experience. They are clearly being hit by the challenges of covid. They appear very short staffed and the morale is quite low. Our wait staff tried, but there did not seem to be any management taking ownership of the challenges. The food was fine, nothing extraordinary, but the price was reasonable. We told the wait staff that we had tickets to a nearby show and we gave ourselves 1.5 hours for our meal before the show. Our food was served 15 minutes before we had to leave. Only had time to eat about half our meal.

We have been coming to your restaurant for several years now. Each time we go, we are a little more disappointed. The service is getting slower and lack of servers is evident. We had to ask for bread plates after the bread was served to our table. We also had to ask for drink refills. Some of our favorite menu items have been deleted from the menu in the last couple of years. We do enjoy some of the food items and the ambiance of the restaurant.

We had a lunch reservation before Hamilton. Because of COVID, the restaurant was short staffed but our waiter was wonderful. He took care of us while also taking care of all the other tables. He was considerate and friendly and we had a wonderful meal. I know restaurants are struggling in many ways right now and we really appreciated the service and the food was excellent!

They were out of several items including most wines, kids cup lids, and several other options. No problem. Server was not happy to be there, could be short staffed, no problem. I ordered the beef medallions which were fully cooked when I ordered medium rare also, the medallions (3) are the size of quarters. My spouse had the steak salad, she ordered medium well and the steak came extremely rare. My child ordered the chicken, dry and burnt in places. Overall a very poor experience, I understand short staffed or items not in inventory but there is no excuse for bad food. They did comp my spouses meal to their credit and in the past it’s been a great restaurant. For well over a $100 dinner it was definitely not worth it.

We eat here a lot when we go to the theater. It has gone down hill in service and quality of food. We were presented with our appetizer with no spoon for dishing up. Dirty plates left on the table and after we got our entrees no on came to see how they were. Never got refills on water until we asked someone. I could tell they were short waiters and the restaurant wasn’t full a lot of empty tables. We will not be going back for along time
Also had no sparkling water and my husband doesn’t drink so he usually orders that . Always have had it before.

The restaurant wasn't very crowded but service overall seemed to be slow. We were near a door that they had propped open (in 32 degree weather) so it was a bit cold. Beautiful restaurant, just that service was slow.

Just an observation: When using Open Table for reservations we usually are seated next to the kitchen. When I've not used Open Table, we have been seated mid or front of restaurant.
Doe's Open Table have designated tables through their system? Would like to sit other than back by the kitchen.
Thank you

It was a busy night and they were very understaffed. That being said, the food was good and the waitstaff pleasant. They were just stretched thin causing long wait times for drinks and food.

For the first night back at the Eccles, Brio is our go to place as the food & beverages are always good. I think we had a newbie server, as he struggled with a few things, but in general was friendly & accommodating.

Service was very disappointing. Server and staff were very nice…when they were around. Didn’t appear to be understaffed, just inattentive. Food time from order to table was quite slow for Italian. 40 minutes from order to table with only 1 visit from server. Food arrived hot and rather tasty. I had the lobster and shrimp fettuccine in crepe sauce. Sauce was wonderful, lobster and shrimp were a little chewy for my liking. Wife had the chicken Milanese which was extremely good. Price was good for what was ordered. This was our first time here and would probably choose someplace else next time just based on service.

Brio at City Creek is a mainstay of this upscale area of downtown Salt Lake. I've been there about eighty times. It's always easy to get a reservation, and they are professional in greeting and management. The obviously know what they're doing. The restaurant floor is on two tiers and the layout is spacious and somehow private as well. If you are a two-person party, then go for a booth (but not by the door in cold weather). Get the booth on the main level that's closest to the kitchen, it's a magical nook where you can people watch (sitting on the same side) or reverse position and watch the open kitchen at work. Alternatively go to the ground floor on the south side for a square table with chairs. I have never once had less than crisp service here. Their strongest dish is the humble lasagna. I used to crave it, and even get a second one to go. I had a dream one night that I was in bed with a gorgeous lingerie model, her head on a pillow to my side, and on the other side of me on the pillow was a dish of Brio lasagna. I shoved the model off the bed and started eating the lasagna. We needed to be alone. That lasagna is dirty; it'll make you do dirty things to get it. And you can't go wrong with any of their seafood dishes either. Lobster and Shrimp Fetuccine? Yes please. Their wedge salad is a juicy crunchy delight, and my preferred starter. I love Brio. I wish I could marry Brio. I want to pull Brio's hair.

We normally love brio, today was fine but not the awesome we’re used to. Also having to request the bread, not having mints, handing to get the staff to realize some needs are all thing that needs to go back to how they were.

Excellent service and food great as usual.
We were disappointed in that the restaurant was out of many wines (both white and red house wines) as well as several other wines - unfortunate- there should have been an offer to compensate for lack of selection

Ate at Brio on a Sunday night, the restaurant was very quiet. Like many places, they were understaffed, which was not unexpected. Our server had 2 parties of 8, a party of 20, and a couple of other tables. Even with that, he kept up well and did a good job.

Kitchen burned something 3 times during our dinner, filling the dining room with a burnt toast smell each time.

Food was ok, similar to an Olive Garden, I'd say, but prices are more elevated than that.

Overall, I wouldn't object to eating there again, but I wouldn't consider myself "drawn in" to the restaurant.
