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.

Told the waiter my food was not correct. But they were to busy. Didn't want to deal with it.

Everything was good until my steak came out raw. The manager and waiter were really nice and apologetic. Plus they gave us a free desert. But still how does that happen?

My reservation was not upheld. I waited for 1 hr to sit and that is because the young lady claims I was called, but was not since I had to sit at the bar to wait and never heard my name called or cell phone called. Finally sat and my dinner was served 40 mins later. I ate at 11:30 at night. Was not happy with this at all. Food was mediocre as the potatoes were still raw and slightly cold from the Salmon dish and the pasta was slightly cold as well. Nothing seemed right. Management has not learned that quality is better than quantity. More people and less attention did not make it a good evening. If reservation are made, it should not be skipped for someone who made it 15 earlier. It was a hot mess. Many customers were upset.

We made reservations got there 10min early still waited 30min to sit. Food took 1hr and 15 min to come out. The entire time the waitress didn’t check on us. Manager finally brought the food and didn’t even acknowledge or apologize for the delay! Very unprofessional!!!

Food was good and we were seated less than 10 minutes after our scheduled reservation, not bad for Valentines Day.
Service was a bit slow and through much of the meal we never saw our server especially after we ordered and during the long wait for our dinner.
The food was very good but the portions were smaller than what we’d had previously.

We waited more than 1 hr for food. One of the dishes was so bad that we returned it. The good thing is that we had no check.

It’s a beautiful restaurant in a very pleasant location. We were shown to our table quickly and the waiter was very at tentative to us. Our drinks, salads and appetizers were served without much waiting. Then everything went south of the border. An hour past and no entrees. More time passed and no food. We eventually got the food after the manager apologized about the kitchen delays. He was very apologetic. Sadly this is not the first time we experienced this at this Brio. It’ll be awhile before we give them another chance. I hope they get their act together because it is a very nice experience dining outdoors there.

Our meals were delicious. However, with very few people dining at the same time as us, service could have been better. Please BRIO, good food is not enough. Service has to be on par with the food.

The hostesses did not handle their being short handed on the floor well. There were several open tables at 830pm, however the three of them chose to stand around chatting amongst themselves rather than pitch in to set up at least 10 open tables.

They also chose to have my party and several others wait for about 30 minutes unnecessarily. I did not see any manager managing them or helping to set up tables for the entire half hour.

The server did a great job —especially considering he was almost alone on the floor.

The food was excellent in taste and presentation.

The waiter was awful, we sat for at least 40 minutes AFTER ordering our food before we got it. And then my food wasn't fresh. I could tell it had been sitting for a while before they brought it over. Our waiter was John Carlos, and he was inattentive and short with us. We also had a gift card and he barely tried to use it before taking it upon himself to swipe my husband's card for the full balance. Overall, I felt like it wasn't worth it to go to this restaurant.

We went to the restaurant on a Monday evening. The waitress told us the did not have the wine I ordered.
I then tried to order an appetizer and the waitress said they are out of that item.

Why put it on the menu when you don't have inventory.

Why did I have to wait to order to find out that they did not have it?

Poor Management kills restaurants faster then bad food.

service was not good. we had to ask if we could get a drink when our apetizer arrived
beef carpaccio was excellent as usual but chicken limone was not as usual. chicken was too thick and roasted vegetables were almost raw carrots and broccoli.
not planning to return soon.

My husband and I alway enjoy dining at Brio when visiting Miami. I suggested the restaurant for my daughters and family. It was a big disappointment. I usually order carpaccio, so we ordered 2 for the table, to find out later that it wasn’t available, sold out! The pasta dishes were either spicy or no flavor at all. My grandchildren ask for deserts, none left. What’s wrong with that restaurant? We still ended up with a bill in the amount of $270 + tip. Very disappointed!

They cannot honor their reservations in a timely manner and they are severely understaffed. Food is okay when you get it but they need better management.

We had a reservation for 7:00PM. Upon checking in, we were told it would be another 30 minute wait, and they would call me on my phone to let me know when a table was ready. 45 minutes later, we hadn’t been seated so we returned to the restaurant to check on the situation. We were told to leave as it was unlikely that we would be seated, despite there being many empty tables and many parties of 4 being seated before us (with later reservations). The food was not worth the wait. We will not be returning.
