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.

Pork chops were very dry and the lasagne was uninspiring. Very good service though.

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.

Our drinks wine and cocktail finally arrived after we flagged someone to follow up still had to wait and finally served halfway through meals. So much for pairing. We’re long time regulars including big birthday groups but recently looked for other options given staff challenges.

Unfortunately there was a group of children in the adjoining room who were extremely loud and boisterous. Neither the adults in that group nor the restaurant (?) apparently did anything to quell the extreme noise. As a result guests in the restaurant also raised their voices in order to hear at their tables. I couldn't wait to leave.

The portions of additions to the pasta dishes were small compared to the prices--mostly pasta which frankly is cheap.

the waiter was very nice but did not initiate pouring additional water etc.

The food was good. My wife and I had a small cesar salad and it was fresh and tasty. I ordered the pork chops and my wife ordered the shrimp and lobster pasta. The 2 pork chops were tasty and tender. The pasta dish had a couple of small pieces of lobster and was a little salty. Otherwise, the pasta was ok.

Service was very good, and there was viritually no wait for the food. Excellent overall service.

We only saw our server 2 times. She came to ask how were things and one person said good and she walked away as another person was asking for a refill of their drink. Never got offered more water when everyone had finished their water because the server never came back to the table to order more drinks. Second time she approached the table she just handed us the check. We would have ordered more drinks and dessert but it was clear she was almost off and was rushing us to leave. Other servers were stacking up chairs over the tables so it was obvious they wanted us gone. Even though it wasn’t even 9:30 and they close at 10. So we paid and left and went somewhere else. Honestly don’t recommend this place. Food was decent but the service was horrible

Excellent family bundle selection. Wanted something offered on Tuesday night special, but it was Wednesday night instead. Couldn't order online, so contacted restaurant, was assistance. Spoke to someone, who could have been a manager, and he quickly made the option available! Not only that, but the selection was made in a very short amount of time! Incredible! The food is outstanding, and the presentation views for itself. Assumely shared and enjoyed by all 5 family members! Highly recommend BRIO on any day of the week!

We were there to meet friends that were coming in from out if town and hadn’t seen in a few years. We got there first . We were seated and waited 7 minutes before a server even came by. The restaurant was perhaps 1/4 full. We put in our drink order and asked for watr as well. Another 7 minutes and the server brought my husbands’s beer. We waited another 7 minutes as my husband was waiting for me to get my drink. I saw the server hanging out and went over to him and asked where my wine was. He said the bartender was busy. So I asked where our waters were. I also asked him that didn’t he think we should get our drinks together? If wasn’t like my wax a difficult cocktail. We ordered a beer and a glass of house . He finally brought the wine after another 5 minutes . We asked for the check and did not eat there. As we were leaving we passed by the bar where there were only 5 people. Won’t go back.

We were 1 of 2 tables occupied. Sat for 15 minutes without a visit from a waiter, hostess, bartender, or cook (open kitchen) so we got up and left. Told the hostess why on the way out and she just said “ok”. So I can’t tell if the food was good because we never got any, but the service was nonexistent.

Showed up on time sat at table 25 minutes no service asked hostess at the counter if anyone was working out table. She asked the waitress working a table near us if she was going to serve us the waitress looks at us and told her no. The nervous hostess had the bartender wait on us who said I’m just the bartender. Out calamari was cold our dinners were cold and my wife’s son got sick after eating the kids meal spaghetti. If they were busy I would under stand but only 3 tables had people and 3 waitresses . The table before us that just got seated was eating dinner before we even ordered . Sad this place isn’t what it use to be .

Slow service despite there being few diners at the time. Wait person struggled to answer simple questions and held glasses by the rims.

Maskless wait staff and kitchen staff. Out of basic menu items and ingredients. Substituted an ingredient in one dish without knowledge or consent.

Unable to complete a gift card transaction. Wanted to comp a $75 tab and toss a $100 gift card.

I'll be honest. Service on Mother's Day was slow. But our waiter gave us a head's up along with an apology and explanation - they were short on staff. We got our drinks quickly and let our waiter know we were in no hurry. We were going to be understanding and patient. We were there to enjoy each other's company. The appetizers came quickly after our waited found time to take our order. The main dishes did take awhile but we made the best of it. All the food ordered was delicious. No complaints there. When the bill arrived we were delighted and surprised to see that our waiter comped our appetizer. "Because you guys were so cool." Restaurants everywhere are having staffing difficulties. Diners can make things worse by complaining and being rude. My advice is to chill. Relax. What's your hurry?
