Management should work on the hostesses. We arrived a little early for our reservation. No one was at the hostess station. We finally flagged someone down and the hostess was sullen, didn't speak to us and seemed to have a bad attitude. The rest of the experience was great.

We really appreciate when the wait staff is properly dressed, attentive and pleasant. Both our bartender and server were friendly, helpful and professional. The food was good but I didn't care for my marinated shrimp so they replaced it with plain with no issue. We will be back.

Dinner at Brio was great. Service by Kate was attentive, food was delicious, ambience very nice. Carppaccio was an awesome presentation, and tasted great. I wasn't a fan of their Minestrone soup, felt like it had been kept warm too long and turned into a vegetable mush. Just didn't taste fresh. We had the pork chops, which had a great flavor and very tender. The Veal Milanese was also very great flavor and delicious. Overall a great dinner and would certainly go back.

We got to visit Brio at Harrah's Cherokee on March 23rd 2018. I had been a few times but my wife had never had the chance. Overall, the experience was fantastic! We had a 7 o'clock reservation but arrived early because we were hungry. They squeezed us in early no problem! The food and service was great! We started with the flat bread sampler and it was delicious! We both had filet mignon cooked to perfection and yummmmmm!
I highly recommend eating here and we will be back!

Sadly, this place has gone downhill. Service was horrible. We waited over 30 minutes for salads. then when we received the salads, my wifes had NO dressing. Then when we asked someone for some, they brought the wrong kind, and were snotty about it.
Would not recommend and it is off our list (and we love Brio overall...Cincinnati has the best one!)

We always enjoy our meals at Brio in Cherokee Casino. The staff is friendly and always remembers us and our preferences, which is a nice touch. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly medium rare and my wife's Gorgonzola steak medallions also were delicious. Meghan, our server, was once again very attentive and always love having her section! The managers always stop by to check and make sure everything is to our liking and are willing to make everything perfect.

We look forward to our next trip and dinner at Brio@Harrah's Cherokee!

We usually sit at the bar for dinner. Service is right in front of you. The bar atmosphere is very Vegas-like. That's a good thing. Over the years we haven't been disappointed with anything on the menu.

This was the worst meal ever. Service was awful..I had fish ..the fish was overdone and mashed potatoes were like glue. Husband had beef it was good....but not polenta..the meal took 1hiur to get to table..server was awful..could not get the order straight. The meal was over $75.00...not worth it. We have been there many times...this is the worse.

Enjoyed our dinner very much with one of our favorite servers, Gioni! He always takes great care of us and a great conversationalist! My husband always enjoyed their fresh trout that is actually local in North Carolina. Their steak salad is excellent for my low carb diet!
Look forward to our next visit!

This is my favorite restaurant at Cherokee Casino and is where I want to have dinner every time I visit. Food is great, prices are reasonable for what you get, staff is helpful and friendly. The best!! Even if you just want a drink and an appetizer at the bar it's great!! You can have a conversation with the people you're with without having to shout over the wait staff or surrounding people.

Nice place for lunch at Harrah’s. Food is predictable for this chain restaurant. My chicken was a bit rubbery and my husband’s pizza slightly undercooked. Recommend sticking to basics, like their lasagna. Outside of Harrah’s Brio is just average. However, at Harrah’s it is a welcome respite from food court and buffet dining options! And the setting is lovely and good for people-watching.

This place never disappoints. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and our service was excellent. They allowed us to order from the dinner menu since the lunch menu was abbreviated and it was my wife's first time there. I highly recommend the Kale Caesar salad! All of the entrees are excellent! One little piece of advice: Brio gets their steaks from the SAME BUYER as Ruth's Chris downstairs. The Ribeye is unbelievably good and half the price of RC! This restaurant is a MUST TRY if you're ever in the vicinity of Cherokee casino. I love it!

This is our 3rd year having dinner at Brio and it is always very good. This time my steak was requested to be medium however it was more medium rare. I asked the waitress to have it cooked a little longer which she kindly did. When brought back out, I received a brand new steak and side. Although the temperature was the way I requested, the outside was very dry and overcooked. I did not send it back again because by that time, the others in my party had been finished. We will be back, but I will stick with pasta. I do love their Bruschetta as well as the Peach Bellini!
