    Service was extremely slow, server was very forgetful when we asked for something he goes away for a while and is reminded again we needed utensils or refills or the check. Very disappointing

    This was our first time at Brio … we stopped to dine outside on the patio … from the start things continues to spiral down .. waiter leaving us for half hour after serving water … we had to ask for someone to serve us … I ordered grilled chicken salad but chicken came cold cut which was not expected … my husband grilled salmon salad came Luke warm as it has been sitting outside for sometime …they took my salad back to fix it so we ended up eating separately … well it’s not the experience I was hoping for

    This experience at Brio’s was absolutely horrible!!! The service was completely non existent!! The staff was extremely lazy (as if they had staff at that!)! We were checked in by a chef that happened to be on the floor coming back from the restroom and saw us standing there. I had to later go back to make sure we were checked in correctly so I could get my open table points! The bartender saw us but was too lazy to leave the empty bar to attend to us. The manager looked over worked, slovenly and frazzled!! We came for the happy hour and sat at one of the high top tables. When we ordered our drinks through the one young waiter (looked he was in high school) they had handling the whole restaurant, I had to get up and go get them from the bar. The bartender was disheveled and frankly didn’t know how to bartend for happy hour!! I see why there is only one restaurant left in the DC/MD/VA area (the one in Baltimore closed down)! I used to like dinning at Brio’s but after this last experience with my mom, we are not interested in going back!!!

    The food was excellent. All 6 persons in our party really enjoyed everything we ordered. The service was good considering a party of 87 persons was seated in the restaurant also when the restaurant was only expecting 40 for that party. However they did a great job in being as attentive as possible considering all the waiters were trying to help out with the large party also. We had a very nice waiter who I'm sure would have been even more attentive to us had it not been for the aforementioned. All 6 of us said we would definitely go back to the restaurant. The food was great!!

    Food, especially HH food choices a bit less interesting than they used to be. HH liquor choices (all vodka, but for one bourbon drink) really not as interesting as usual - thank goodness they also had a nice fruity sangria. The patio was lovely - a perfect weather day for outside seating. (but a small furry friend thought so too, and kept scampering nearly - yuck). While I gave the service a 4 star, it was entirely due to the personality of the server, who clearly realized he was not keeping up w/the tables. Clearly another place short staffed post-COVID, which makes it hard to be as frustrated by 30 minute waits for small things - like the bread by friend wanted for her soup, which was essentially finished, though she ate slow, by the time it finally arrived. As I stated, however, server really knew he was unable to keep up and had the right attitude to carry it off, so we tipped well despite.

    I've been to Brio Tuscan Grill many times, in the past mainly for work. This time I took my fiancé for a Mothers Day dinner on a Sunday afternoon. The good news was they were able to accommodate us for dinner at the bar, since our plans had changed and we arrived an hour and a half early. Totally understandable and appreciated given how busy it was for Mothers Day. Bad news was the bar was a mess and no one seemed interested in cleaning it. Throughout our drinks and dinner, used plates and glasses surrounded us. The bartender never even wiped the counter after we moved the dishes aside ourselves. A busser arrived as we got close to finishing our me and after I commented he said he just clocked in. Food was decent and otherwise we had a nice experience.

    We had a large party to celebrate a birthday. This restaurant had nice large tables for this type of gathering. Service was slow but it was professional and cordial. The food was good and no complaints but it did not have the wow factor that I look for in top notch cuisines.

    We have been dining at Brio since it opened. We like the restaurant and the food (which comes out fine most of the time, but not always). The patio is lovely. The dining room is noisier the closer you sit to the kitchen, and when the restaurant is full, it is very noisy near the kitchen with the addition of people shouting orders. But, service is terribly slow! Wait staff is friendly, but very sparse. It took a good 15 minutes before our server came to the table and we were seated over an hour by the time our dinner was served. Very disappointed in the service and hope it improves.

    Very empty at 11am but poor attention from waiter. My meal was to be with no onions, blackened chicken on salad and dressing on the side. It came with chopped up onions mixed in, grilled chicken and wrong salad dressing mixed in. I could not get waiters attention to return meal and others were already eating.

    We hadn't been to this Brio's since it re-opened. The new management seems to have things well in order. The bar continues to function convividly. The dinner menu was varied. The food was very well prepared. It seems as though the servers are understaffed. Service was somewhat slow....

    For a higher-class Italian Restaurant, it was an extreme let down. I eat everything in front of me, but my food was inedible and by far the worst lasagna I’ve ever had in my life.

    The flatbread that came with the spinach dip was stale, and a bug was flying around our table the whole time. The waiter was not masked, and that made us very uncomfortable as he kept leaning in to hear us.

    We love going to Brios but on this visit we were totally caught off guard! The menu showed Lobster Bisque as $7.99. I ordered a bowl of the lobster bisque. The only price on the menu was $7.99. When the bill came, we were charged $15 for the soup! We double checked a menu on the way out, assuming we had overlooked the $15/bowl and confirmed the only price for the lobster bisque on the menu is $7.99. It does not state if that is for a cup or a bowl so we assumed it was a set price, set size. We had already paid and as we were walking out & checking a menu for the price, a server asked us if we needed help (not the server we had at our table). She said that yes the bowl is $15. We showed her on the menu the $7.99 and she said the bowl price was not on the menu but she would show us in the computer that the charge was correct- She would show us on the computer to prove the point? That was just rude! Why would they have only one price on the menu with no size noted & then almost double the price w/out fair warning?We have loved Brios & have gone there frequently (as evidenced by our Open Table reservations) but now when we visit, if we visit again, we will double check prices to avoid another bait & switch which definitely takes the pleasure out of dining.
