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.

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?

Poor service--couldn't tell if they were unstaffed or if waiter was just not focused. He did comp us 2 desserts, but then didn't follow through timely even after that. Food was just ok--salmon was overcooked and dry.

Unfortunately the service was awful. Waited forever to order and get our food. The server was overwhelmed and too busy. This is not the norm because we enjoy Brios but this was the first time out in a long time and we were very disappointed

We had not eaten in Brio for quite some time. This time we were disappointed in the quality of the food. It was just mediocre at best. We've had wonderful meals there in the past.

I had a reservation booked on Open Table for 7:30pm. They gave my high top table to someone else who said they were me. I checked in and they said we already seated you. I said well I just got here and showed them my reservation confirmation. They tried to get the other party to move but were unsuccessful. Then we were sat in the dining room awaiting another table in the bar area. The hostess assured me that we would get the next table that opens up. We ordered drinks in the dining room then waited a little longer. Then a table was opening up so I went back to the host stand and asked if we could sit at the table that opening up. The hostess said yes, and I’ll come get you when it’s ready. Then it happened again, they let another group sit there who didn’t even have a reservation. So in the span of 30 minutes, I lost two tables and never received the drinks that we ordered in the first place. Horrible service overall and extremely poor handling of the situation. I have never walked out of a restaurant before being served food or drinks until last night. I can handle bad service, but last night was complete unacceptable.

Amazing Saturday night meal with family. It took a few minutes to get seated, but once we were seated the service was amazing and the food was as good as ever. There were 9 of us and they were able to get all of the food out to us together and tasting wonderful. Always a dependable restaurant - especially good for larger groups.

Food, Service was GREAT! Kevin was our server. However, when I presented an email I had received regarding $10 towards 2 adult meals the manager said I was not in the system. They did honor it finally, but said we needed to register with their rewards program and did not have a number for me. They gave me a card to register. Will that cancel my information with open table?
Thank you
