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.

Salmon was suppose to be pan seared. It was poached and tasted fishy.
I should have gotten the grilled.

I ate lunch and was very pleased with the food and service!
I highly recommend the wedge salad and the shrimp/eggplant appetizer was amazing! The lobster and shrimp fettuccine was also good, but I would try another dish next time. I’ll be back!

This restaurant used to be a favorite, with excellent ambiance, service and food. But the management seems to have slipped. Food was fine, but not excellent. The table, where it used to be immaculate, was set with a wrinkled tablecloth, covered with a piece of paper that was much too small for the table. The waiter for the first evening, George, was very good, attentive to our needs, and actually spoke to us with more than “what may I get you today?” The 2nd meal was served by a waiter who seemed not to care about us. The wine available was limited in selection, and even the higher priced wine was quite acidic, and the waiter took no action to check with the bar to get a better wine, although he did not charge for the wine that my wife couldn’t drink. Our steak was OK, but not exceptional at all. And this for our 48th Anniversary?

Good service, great food,and pleasant atmosphere. Restaurant is at Cherokee Casino; so, readily accessible if you are gambling and/or staying at the hotel. Reservation process was easy, and necessary because "walk up" patrons had a 30+ minute wait on Monday night.

The food and service were excellent! Always enjoy Gioni for our service! Remembers all our preferences, very professional and is such a delight! Miss Brenda is a wonderful manager and makes sure everything is to our liking and the food is on point! Our favorite restaurant when we are at Harrah's in Cherokee!

I gave BRIO a low review because when I created the reservation I was asked if there were any special occasions. I said there was a Birthday. When we were seated and asked the server if they had notification of a Birthday and she said yes. Unfortunately when we were served and our check came there was nothing done related to my wife's Birthday. This was pretty much of a let down.

Child’s spaghetti was decent . My steak was full of gristle and for the price I would have thought it to be a better quality of meat. Wouldn’t ever order it again. Atmosphere was nice and server was pleasant .

We arrived early yet were promptly seated in the booth I had requested. We were greeted by our waiter Hannah B who was engaging and fun. She really catered to our every comfort and ease which made our dining experience outstanding. The drinks we ordered were perfectly crafted and delicious. We shared the spinach artichoke dip and an order of lasagna which were wonderful. Thanks so much for the great date night! We will be back again!

I told the waitress that it’s too bad there isn’t eggplant parmigiana on the menu. She offered to make a version to order....it was excellent. Nice effort, nice result. Hats off!!

We eat at Brio's quite often when we visit Cherokee. The food is always excellent and the service is fantastic. Often we dine at the bar when seats are available and we have not made a reservation. The service here is also great and the servers are very cordial and accommodating. All in all, we have never been disappointed when dining at BRIO.

The food was great. The drink service was slow. We did not receive our drinks until about 5 minutes before our food arrived. The server was friendly. I forgot her name. The brought a lava cake for my friend's birthday. It was delicious. My salmon was perfect. Next time I will be aware of the time it takes to dine there.

Wonderful Italian food is served at this elegant restaurant at the casino. We have been several times and the food has always been excellent. Good bread and fancy desserts add to the quality of food and service you get at BRIO. Cannot wsit to return.

Some food was very good, some was average. Over all, it is overpriced, including a $6.00 charge for a flimsy side salad to an entree. Service was cordial, even coming us desserts for our anniversary. But, for a couple, there is not much excuse for bringing one their entree twenty minutes after the other.

Great restaurant and great service! Because we had such a large party we were able to sit in the private room in the back of the restaurant. I would highly recommend! The food was delicious! Our server recommended a few apps and everything was amazing!

My husband ordered the spaghetti carbonara. The spaghetti was over cooked and mushy. There was hardly any sauce or pancetta. I ordered the chicken Milanese which was very good. However, I had to share it with my husband since his meal was basically inedible.

They did a great job of attending to our table of 8, and the food was fantastic!
If you are bothered by the smell of cigarette smoke, try to sit in the interior of the restaurant, and not in the bar area that is exposed to the open air of the casino.

My son ordered Steak and it was burnt crisp. The waiter took it back and returned with another that was just as burnt. We didn't say anything that time, he just tried to ear it and left. Complaining is not our cup of tea.,if they were eating steak absolutely no.

Our food "adult food" was amazing. We had a group of 5 children with us. Our oldest loved the macaroni and cheese. Our 4 others got lasagna none of them really enjoyed it. All adults tried it and understood the kids thoughts. Otherwise it was great
