You can not have a safer socially distanced dinner than here! Amazing service, phenomenal food, in a safe space! My family and I had a wonderful Early Thanksgiving Dinner thanks to Napoleon and other staff members!

I had dinner here on November 20. I was in no hurry and wanted a nice, leisurely dinner. I started with wine and an appetizer. Both came within minutes of ordering. Then I ordered dinner, which came minutes later, when I was just starting the appetizer. No drink refills were ever offered. All told, from the time I was seated until I was paying my bill only 30 minutes had passed. I realize that some people want quick service, and sometimes service can be too slow. In this instance, though, I felt like they were trying to push me out the door as fast as possible. The food itself was "fine"--not too bad but nothing to write home about either. If I had wanted fast food I would have gone to McDonald's.

Overall, it was a very good experience. The food was excellent and the reduced menu still had lots of choices. Tables were adequately spaced for social distancing which kept the noise to a minimum. They were a tad understaffed, but the waiter was pleasant and apologetic for any delays.

My wanted to go to Brio and we were joined by my oldest daughter. Dino, our server was a perfect balance of helpful but not intrusive. Saw that we had the delicious bread and water. Made helpful suggestions about wine. Speaking of which, the wine selection is one of the more sparse ones we have seen at an Italian restaurant. Was excited about the Shrimp/Lobster Afredo, but the pasta was really sticky therefore hard to separate. The Ladies were satisfied with their dishes.

We went on a Monday. It was not crowded.
Bread stale, order incorrect, salmon not well done,
cheese cake tasted granular & crust was hard to cut. It was probably old. Our meal was not edible. Waiter was new & took forever for everything. Manager compt us.
We will never come back.

Well first of all I had to wait 15 minutes after I had made a reservation. I understand that y’all are busy, but I made this reservation 10 days in advance just so I didn’t have to wait. The waitress was alright. She was attentive, but it seemed like her attention was elsewhere other than our table. We didn’t even get the cheese offered to us which other tables did.

We went for Valentine’s Day. We got in & seated right away with Open Table (7:15pm). They gave us a good four top. We were able to talk. The ambience was good. They brought out bread. We tried the soups, the salmon, and the bass. All excellent. The service was very good but a bit too fast. We will for sure coming back again.

It was Valentine’s Day, and although busy, it wasn’t super crowded but our server, Dino, was very harried. It took him awhile to come to us, and then he didn’t introduce himself, or say Happy Valentine’s Day, but rushed and seemed preoccupied. Our table did not have rose petals like the other tables and I just felt like we were an inconvenience. As an afterthought, Dino asked... so what can I get you... or would you like to hear the specials? Our food came and my wine did not. We waited for Dino to come ( the food was delivered by someone else) so that we could get Parmesan cheese. My hubby had shrimp and lobster over fettuccine and he thought his pasta was overcooked. I had mushroom ravioli and added on shrimp ( mistake) as they were quite small and “fishy” tasting. The mushroom ravioli was ok but rather bland and the mushroom filling was sort of like paste- not really fresh and flavorful. We have always enjoyed Brio but this was not the best visit.

The food was fantastic. Our server did not introduce himself. He took our drink order and did not return for 20 minutes. Our drinks were brought by someone else. When our server came back he took our order disappeared again and our appetizer was brought by another person. I would visit again but would not chose the same sitting area.

This is the first time that I actually used Brio for a meeting I think it was hard on the server to not be attentive, She was very courteous and didn’t really want to interrupt us but wanted to make sure that we knew she was there so she did a wonderful job, and everything was great and I would very much do my lunch meetings there more often thank you
