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. 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.

Delicious Chicken Limone entree! Our waiter was great, it just took longer than expected to have our food served in light of the fact they weren’t real busy. A delightful lunch & pleasant atmosphere !

The service was horrible. I was seated at a table, waited 20 min, no one ever came to table. I asked for a manager and no one ever came! So I left and went to another restaurant. I will NEVER return, and will tell friends and co workers to never patronize that establishment

Food was good, service slow. Got really loud as the evening progressed and the restaurant filled up. We were in a booth and noticed breadcrumbs all along the railing around our table.

The food is always excellent but the service was so very slow. The Bartender took 20 minutes to make our drinks when no one was at the bar and he wandered in and out. The waitress was pleasant but left us for very long periods of time without checking if we needed anything.

There were a total of four tables in the restaurant. We had very slow service and our pasta was very overcooked.

The Salomon was good. Will not return

We had a guest delayed and had to change our reservation time not once, but twice. Both times Brio staff was understanding, professional, and accommodating. Food was excellent and atmosphere was perfect for the dinner discussion.

Brio isn’t quite the same....The bread has diminished to taste and look cardboard-like for starters.
Everything was so much more “commercial” tasting.

The service was extremely slow and some things were not brought to the table.

We enjoyed our dinner at Brio. We went to celebrate my son's birthday. The food was wonderful, but it was very loud in the restaurant. There was a ski club meeting in the bar area and that made the restaurant very noisy.

This was a 45th wedding anniversary and dinner with my oldest brother and his wife, and step-daughter. The evening was a wonderful occasion, made all the more memorable because of the dining experience at Brio. Each guest enjoyed their meals, perfectly prepared and delicious. Our salads were fresh and the house salad dressings were great. Our server, Alan Beavers, did a terrific job, serving us in a professional and personable manner, attentive but never crowding us. The quiet atmosphere allowed us to hold a lively conversation, as we reminisced about years gone by. And the valet parking made the trip easy for all.

Brio is one of our very favorite spots for celebration dinners, so we celebrated my wife's birthday there on Sunday evening. If you are fortunate enough to have Dion as your server, then a great meal becomes exceptional! He was so very attentive, yet not obtrusive, and handled a couple of special requests regarding our meal with smiling perfection. The food was superb as usual, and we had a truly delightful evening out celebrating a romantic birthday dinner together.

The eggplant shrimp appetizer was super delicious. The brick cooked half chicken was moist but lacked flavor. If I didn’t have it as a carry out I would have returned it to the kitchen. The Peach Billini was awesome.

Drinks/water came 20mins after sitting down, food was terrible quality, salads looked several days old and straight from a bag, my salmon had a funny smell, the steaks were over cooked, and the mashed potatoes were terrible. The manager was kind enough to take off charges for all the food despite us stating that the kids enjoyed their dinners, so that was the highlight. The 2 waitresses seemed extremely inexperienced for a semi high-end chain, but at least they were trying.

We decided to have birthday dessert elsewhere.

I have been there when it was much more crowded. Took 1 hour to get our food. Waiter took 45 minutes to bring my drink. Didn’t check on us even though it was taking forever. Never offered to comp us anything. I used to love the place but I am unlikely to return.

The dishes are hit or miss. I had pesto pasta, and it was dry and tough. I expected better for a $16 dish. My daughter had the steak medallions and she enjoyed hers. The service was good and its a lovely atmosphere.

John was a very friendly server, but he seemed to be stretched too thin. He told me twice he would refill my empty glass of iced tea before I reminded him a third time however, once the bill was paid, he never showed his face again.
