The only issue was the fluorescent light and the ceiling fan which ruined the ambiance of our patio seating. We felt as though we were dining under a disco ball.

Food was great!

Great server, I am a bit older and I knew his name on Friday but I cannot remember his name. He was very attentive, but also gave us time to decide. I would totally request him again.

First dining out with dad and kids. The atmosphere was nice and the food was great. My niece really loved this sundaes! My only suggestion is for management to try not to seat parties too close to each other, we are still maintaining social distance. Fortunately, the hostess was able to move us into an area where we felt more comfortable and not too close to other parties. Will definitely come back!

The service was very poor. The server was impolite. Wasn’t wearing a mask and getting very up close to take the order. Appeared to be hard of hearing but when you repeated your order to make sure he got your order, he was rude by saying yes I heard you. Very rude. Manager was equally unhelpful. Lobster bisque was more like tomato Basil. When we mentioned this to the manager we got the usual excuse that they don’t put lobster or shrimp pieces any more. Really? Lobster Bisque without any lobster or shrimp? Call it tomato Basil then.

had reservations and were seated promptly, however we waited for over 10 minutes to be greeted by a server on a non-busy, very hot day. finally got water after over 15 minutes. Extremely noisy though not crowded. Steak on salad was undercooked, and salad was overdressed. disappointing experience.

Really bad food. Updated their menu it seems. We had 9 people and all but the kids chicken tenders did not like their food and was way overpriced. Could have ate at Olive Garden for cheaper and better food. The server was not that great either. The employee that came to clean the table said "excuse me" to reach over my shoulder when we could have picked up the small plate from my side and I think purposely dropped all the bread crumbs on my clothes. I had to let him know he didn't know what he was doing. I typically don't complain or care but seemed rude to me.

I haven’t been to Brio since before the pandemic. I felt the quality of the food was good but not the same level as before. Waiter was great, we were not hurried but my grilled shrimp were just average and my salad uninspired. Hoping for a better experience next time.

The food was good and portions were larger than expected. Our server was very friendly and took good care. I was there for lunch and my friend was running a little late. I was on the patio, which was quite comfortable as they have both fans and heaters. The waiter came to check regularly and had a nice visit while I waited. He was wearing a mask the whole time. The hostess put hers on as soon as I walked in the door, so I very much appreciated that. It was early, and not crowded at all. A few more people came in over the next hour, but tables were apart and plenty of room to feel comfortable.

Sitting outside was extremely noisy. Although our server was very nice, the pace for service was very slow. It seems the place was under-staffed. The food was very good except for one of the dishes which was lamb chops that were over-cooked.
