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.

We had an amazing meal last night at BRIO. We’ve never had a bad experience here and everything was perfect. You need to try the red pepper bruschetta for an appetizer. Amazing! Be sure to follow East Coast Slots on YouTube to see all the amazing food!!

Good wine selection. Bruschetta was very good. Lamb chops were not cut/trimmed properly which left the lamb very tough. Espresso Rib eye did not seem be able actual ribeye but was seasoned decently. Staff was attentive. Restaurant was clean and pleasant.

Was disappointed the Kale Caesar salad was removed from the menu. Had to ask for the flatbread crackers with herbs, brought two crackers with one of our starters. These always set the tone for a great meal, it seemed you never got enough of them they were so good.
Nothing bad to say about the food. Had a nice scallop special that was tasty and cooked really great.

This was a good place but I guess they got a cheaper chef or went on other austerity measures.

Carpaccio was clearly soaked in some kind of brine but still kind of ok. Lamb chops were a disaster - frozen and microwaved. Even fettuccine Alfredo was mediocre although last year was great.

Not really a good place to go anymore.

Oh, and don’t trust the menu as we twice got the answer “sorry, we don’t have it”

The food and service are always very good here, but getting seated is baffling. We had 8:00 reservations, showed up at 8:00 and were given one of those pagers. We stood around for 15+ minutes before being seated at a table that was empty when we arrived -- and they weren't very busy. Seemed like they wanted us to go to the bar first.

Had a ceasar salad and lasagna. Both was excellent. The lasagna was some of the best I ever had. The waitress was nice but seemed more interested in chatting it up with customers than waiting on tables. Not a criticism, I just had to remember it is the south!

This restaurant, located on the second floor of the casino, was the best eating establishment in the area. They offered a variety entree on their menu. Everyone in my group were very satisfied with their selection ranging from pasta, seafood and chicken. Great food/service.

We almost always have a meal at BRIO when we visit Harrah’s Cherokee. Food is consistently good but I wouldn’t go so far as to call it amazing. Service is always good. It’s always been an enjoyable meal for us.

Our server Miranda was awesome!! We could not our 25th wedding anniversary any better. The restaurant prepared a very nice anniversary card with personable touch and treated us for a free dessert and coffee for both. Thank you so very much for the wonderful hospitality and service. We sure will be back!

Love this place! We go every time we are in Cherokee. They did an awesome job setting up our table with some Birthday items I brought balloons, cake open with topper, etc. The table was all set when the Birthday girl got there.

Food is ALWAYS delicious. We have never gotten a bad meal. Wish there was one where we live!

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.

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!
