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.

The dinner and service was excellent. The waitress was so pleasant and friendly. Our party of four had a different meal and everyone was very pleased with their selection along with dessert.

The smoke smell from the casino below was overwhelming, but besides that, the food was good. The prices are high, but well worth it for good food. The only suggestion I have is hopefully the restaurant would offer smaller silverware options. My hands are tiny, and the silverware is bulky and heavy. My husband had no problem. But I had difficulty holding my fork.

Love the atmosphere. Food is always excellent. The best filet, always tender. We like to sit in the booths. Best to make reservations if you don't want to wait.

The restaurant was very nice. The service was very slow even though our waitress just had one other table besides us. The pasta was not cooked right. The shrimp was overcooked so much it was rubbery. I ordered a Strawberry Fresca and even when I first received it it was warm. Definitely not worth the price you pay. Husband got just plain spaghetti with meat sauce and they charged $18 dollars.

Been many times, 8:30 we went and the food was awful..Pasta carbonara was bone dry, Logan our fabulous server brought supposedly the cream sauce with Gran Padana chuncks in it with a watered sauce with chunks of cheese that were pungent, and yes the pasta was never covered in a cream sauce... while not charged for the dish disappointing experience at best...

Grandaughter’s high school graduation. Hannah was our server and she was amazing at her timing and her anticipating wants. Very great. Colton helped us get the table and situation we wanted. We have had many family celebrations at Brios. This was unforgettable and very special. Thank you Brios for your great menu. Super breads and great service. Chef even came out to talk to our granddaughter who has special allergies. She prepared perfect meal for her

Another delicious meal at Brio at Cherokee Casino! Brenda and her staff always make you feel welcomed and service is on point! Gioni, our waiter, is one of our favorites and enjoy his wonderful personality and friendliness. My Veal Milanese was amazing, and they accommodated my special requests. My husband loves their fresh trout and orders each time it's available. Buon appetite!

I have eaten at Brio many times over the years. I enjoy the atmosphere and the food is delicious. I ordered the Pan Seared Salmon and asked Gioni our server if he could have it blackened more and boy did he deliver. Gioni has been my server on a few occasions in the past and he is very attentive and friendly. My friend order the Rib Eye and really enjoyed it. I was seated promptly at my reservation time. Thanks again Brio for a wonder experience and scrumptious meal.

Linda my server was very friendly and efficient. The peach Arnold Palmer was great. Love the bread basket! I enjoyed the shrimp pasta and always love the wedge salad!
Everything was spot on! I enjoyed it so much, I came back the next day with my husband for Father’s Day. He likes the peach tea also and we shared a wedge salad and had the chicken soup with a hint of lemon. It was delicious and the guests next to us made a comment. Your soup sure smells delicious! It is!!!

Food was excellent. Service was quick and professional. Ambiance was as good as can be expected in an open room format. Staff needs to be more invisible, as they were standing in an open area staring at the customers. They were too noticeable. Overall a very good dining experience.

I celebrated my 35th birthday here with my friends and Family. We chose BRIO over the other many restaurants at the casino due to its “outdoorsy” but inside feel. Lexi was our sever, and she made me feel very special from the very beginning. The general manager even wrote me a personalized card offering a free dessert in celebration of my birthday. The food was excellent, service was top notch! I will definitely make this my go to restaurant next time I visit the casino! Thank you all!

BRIO was just as delicious as it always is. My only complaint is that the menu has changed since my last visit. I was extremely disappointed that they no longer serve the "Chicken Limone". That was my favorite dish and I ordered it every single time I went. Other than that, the service, atmosphere and food were all exceptional. We will be back!

This was our second time dining at Brio Grille. The food was exceptional. The service was even better. Taylor was our server and there is absolutely nothing she could have done to make our experience any better. We finished our meal and went into the bar for an after dinner drink because we didn't want the experience to end. All in all a perfect end to a perfect experience. We are only sorry there was no way to give it more than a 5 star rating.

I normally love the food at Brio but this time I was very disappointed. I ordered the spicy eggplant/shrimp appetizer and the shrimp was overcooked and tough. I ordered the ribeye steak and it was so salty that I could not even eat it. The server did send back and have another one cooked, but by that time, I was ready to leave. I used my Diamond dining certificate and was very disappointed that my meal could not be comped or that I had to pay for such a bad meal (even though it did not cost me anything) and I had to use the certificate on such a bad meal. The service was also very slow for a Thursday evening. Not a very good experience all the way around.

Good selection and fairly priced wine by the bottle. We had a steak special, my husband's was overcooked but still tasty. What bothered me was that I asked what came with the special and was told asparagus and mashed potatoes, when I looked at the bill later, we were charged extra for the asparagus. I find that deceptive. Overall however, I love this restaurant! The food was good, the service good.

The calamari was OUTSTANDING! A generous portion; perfectly prepared (not one morsel rubbery!); accompanied by 2 good dipping sauces (aoli the shrimp was dry and over cooked in both dishes (tho the lobster pieces were perfect); and the sauce for the lobster & shrimp dish was terrible...needed a bit of acid (maybe lemon?) and far less cloying cheesy sauce additive. While the calamari was very reasonably priced, the pasta dishes were over priced.
