Italian
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. Located near the University of Dayton, Wright State University and Wright Patterson Air Force Base. 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.

We had a very pleasant experience overall. We went early - 5:30 reservation - which we enjoy because of less noise and faster service. The food, as always, was excellent - fresh and flavorful. Presentation is somewhat middle-of -the -road - but that's OK with us if the food is great, which it is.... We've had the same server the last three times there and I'm embarrassed to not remember his name - tall, slender, handsome, very polite and knowledgable, and very professional. We've traveled all over the world and dined at top starred restaurants - this man would do well anywhere! Should also mention that cocktails are well mixed and wine porings are very generous! We'll definitely go back!

Good food and service. Glad that they have brought back some favorites - when they changed owners, they changed the menu. Roasted red pepper bruchetta was awesome, so glad that was on the menu again!

Although the steak came out well done instead of rare, I give the restaurant five stars. The manager, Kevin, came out and apologized profusely. He gave everyone at the table free desserts. Our server was top notch as well. It was especially nice to sit out in the patio on a beautiful summer night and listen to live music.

Our server was rude she threw our straws on the table and walked away ...same thing when she brought the bread bowl out she tossed it on the table. Im not exaggerating she did not place either item gently on the table. She did not come back to check on us at all. Another girl brought us our food and asked if we needed anything else she was at least pleasant. I have not been to Brio since the early 2000s and this is why, the same thing happened then in a large group I was with of 12 adults then. This time it was just my sister and I for a belated birthday dinner. My food was good but for the prices you pay. I would expect way better service. I could’ve gotten better service at the Olive Garden for less money!! I will not be going to Brio ever again ..I gave them a second chance and they failed miserably

I have finally hit the point that I am no longer willing to accept the chef’s not understanding my request for my dressing on the side. I constantly have to send my salad back to be redone because it is loaded with dressing. During our business lunch yesterday, I just ate my Mediterranean salad because I didn’t want to delay my client’s lunch. I have decided not to take clients there anymore. The salmon was good but the salad smothered in dressing was NOT what I ordered.

We had a nice time with our group of 7 but service was lacking and food was just okay. It wasn’t very busy so the mediocre service should have been better. We all eventually got what we ordered but the guy who brought our food was obviously new. He really couldn’t read the ticket and then he left the children’s food sitting on the tray as he went to check on the salmon that was forgotten from my husband’s salad. We weren’t charged for the salmon which was nice. Ice tea was refilled but without ice. Nothing was said about our granddaughter’s birthday even tho it was on the reservation. Salads were mixed up. That was an easy fix. No real problems but things were messy. Better training would have solved the issues. My husband and I both had salads so it was hard to judge the food quality. We have eaten her many times over the years and this was the most lacking

Our family went for birthday dinner; server rushed taking our order then we waited forever to get it. Food was overly salted, steaks were either over or undercooked (one was fatty and grissly). Part of the group almost had to leave w/o getting their food, but it came at the last minute and they had to jump up to leave right away and missed out on the birthday cake. The manager was very nice and accommodating, he comped 3 entrees. Waitress did her best, and she was very sweet, but she seemed to have been assigned too many tables. The restaurant was not completely full yet seemed understaffed. Really, most of the problem seemed to stem from the kitchen.

Disappointing meal. Very slow service. Only saw server for order, cocktails, and bill. Had to track down servers for service. In the past we have loved the food and service at Brio (and Bravo), having frequently dined there. I can only trust this was a rare, off night.

Food of above average quality, service was good, however the restaurant is definitely NOT a place for an intimate evening. At times the noise level was so high I could not even hear my dining companions although they were speaking loudly to try and be heard. Part of the problem is that the restaurant has absolutely no sound absorbing surfaces anywhere, no drapes or acoustic tiles, and tables are close together, so the decibel level is excessive. This is one of the few restaurants where it is actually quieter to have a meal at the bar than in the dining room, which is saying something!

We had a reservation at 5:15. I told them at 5:05 we were there. There were maybe people at 6 tables and it appeared they were lost. It took them 15 minutes to seat us. Three people had to go "get the table ready". It was very confusing. There were only 5 of us.

Our waiter Gene was excellent. He made the start of a bad situation a lot better. It’s started with my sister getting to the hostess stand first....she was there 4 minutes before I walked in and no acknowledgement by the hostess or the manager who also was at the hostess stand. Once I walked in I was acknowledged. We were then informed that reservations for the patio are first come first serve, something not outlined on open table. We decided to wait for patio seating. We became very frustrated because there were empty tables, 2 or 3 at a time and it was taking 10+ minutes to seat the table. Also there were empty tables that took 10+ minutes to bus. We were informed they do 3 pages, 5 minute interval before bypassing the wait listed party. This seems excessive if the patio is such a hot commodity for seating. Once we were seated, about 50 minutes, Gene came right over and was very sociable and attentive. He provides great service. At the end of the meal we called the
Manager over to express how pleased we were with Gene and discuss some of our
Prior frustrations. He gave excuses for the problems which is totally unacceptable for a service industry and didn’t acknowledge that there was any validity to our complaints.

For appetizers/flatbread and drinks only. The main courses are overpriced and mediocre, especially if you get anything besides a pasta dish. Outdoor patio is very nice.

Food was good. Drinks were good. It was Mother’s Day. Place was packed. Service was absolutely awful. 15 min to take order, 30 min for salads , 15 min for a glass of wine. I don’t think it was all the servers fault as much as the kitchen . Mother’s Day is one of the most busiest dinner evenings of the year. The management should have had extra servers, extra cooks . They were very understaffed. This location has never been really timely with the food but this was crazy and we almost walked out.

Arrived early for reservation. Seated at bar for a drink while waiting. Seated on time for reservation.
Ordered, the special lobster tail with the entree. Unfortunately, the kitchen burned the shell causing charred shell to mix with the lobster meat. I had to ask for drawn butter. Mentioned and showed the burned tail to the waiter and he had bill adjusted.
Overall, food was average in quality and taste.
