Italian
BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. Just a short drive away from Paramount Theater, Farmingdale College and Republic Airport. 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.

We had to remind waiter to bring water and bread. Wife ordered a steak medium. Steak came well done. I ate my meal alone while she waited for another steak. I finished my meal by the time a chef apologized and delivered another steak. This was also well done. We then asked for our bill and left.

A good restaurant will never overcook a steak. One can add more heat, but one can take heat away. One doesn't make a mistake a second time. So the chef messed up two steaks. No manager came over to speak with us. The restaurant appears to really not care about their customers

For the money it’s a good value. If they included a small salad with their entrees it would be better.

The vegetables that are served with main courses are not good - poor quality and not cooked well.

Went on mother’s day, given dirty silverware, finally received our bread by the time meals were served, flat bread was tasteless and soggy... how do you mess up pizza? Ordered what i thought was Rose Sangria and I got some slushy syrupy daiquiri. Overall this place is just a more expensive Olive Garden. The only saving grace was our waiter who was polite and powered through the disaster of a restaurant he has to work with.

We dined on Mother's Day. The restaurant was very busy and active. You would expect it to be so. Food was very good and along with the service given the activity. We visited Brio many times always using OpenTable in making reservations. Once we arrived and were shown our table, we experience the following:
We were seated in what was clearly picnic like chairs to handle the additional volume of people. Not the usual seating of the main dining room.
No utensils or napkins were in place when we first sat down.
Crumpled paper tissue on the floor.
Wine served with the foil not cut cleanly and correctly. A training issue in properly serving wine.
Had to ask for utensils and napkins.
Several servers walked by and did not notice the paper tissue on the floor.
Asked who appeared to be one of the managers for steak knife - never got it.
Poor attention to detail.
Disappointed.
Will give them the benefit of the doubt due to past experiences that were good, but will be discerning going forward.

The food was excellent and was served hot. The mushroom soup was delicious, as were the two chicken entrees we ordered. We don't usually order dessert, but we did this time and we're very glad we did. The cheesecake and the Chocolate cake were wonderful. The service was great also. Although it was very crowded on Mother's Day, the time between courses wasn't too long. We'll definitely come again.

Mother’s Day Brunch for 3people at 10:30am. Ordered ham& biscuit Benedict & two berries & cream French toast. All three items came out cold. We told our waiter & we waited for new brunch items. The ham & biscuit Benedict came out with over done poached eggs & a burnt & hard biscuit. We were not offered more coffee. So disappointed. Our waiter was William & he was a BIG ZERO

The table was not ready for our reservation and we had to wait. Waiter was rushing us for a drink app order. When they were delivered he took the main course which were delivered to the table a d were nice and hot. My grandsons ff were missing as was the waiter. By the time he got the message, we decided to cancel our dessert and left after that. In general it was adequate.

Good food as usual but service was very poor. We’ve been to Brio numerous times. All servers had previously been attentive, friendly and helpful. This time was a disappointment.
We’ll go back but avoid this waitress if she’s still employed.

Reserving a table through open table made no difference than just walking in and being put on a wait list. When you show up on time for your booked reservation you should be seated within a reasonable time and not wait as long as those who just walked in. Hostess seemed overwhelmed .

Wait staff was terrible. We waited for 25 minutes and no one even bothered to bring us water. Once I found a manager he apologized and sent someone to our table. We ordered and didn’t see the waiter until we had to seek him out for the check. The manager then came back to the table to see how how we were doing but dropped the ball as well. We told him that we were totally neglected. He apologized again and took 20% off of the bill. No one even came buy to fill our empty water glasses.

The setting of this Brio Tuscan Grill is beautiful. It is clean and attractive with tables spaced adequately apart to allow for ease of movement and private conversation.
The food is attractively arranged and portions are plentiful.
The server was polite and friendly and easily available if needed.
I highly recommend this restaurant!

This is the third time we have tried Brio's each time hoping our experience will be different, but it is not. We place our order and we wait, and wait and wait people who come in after us are getting their food. Then we are told their is a problem in the kitchen, we are sorry etc. Eventually food comes out. My husband ordered a Salad with grilled salmon, his was fine I ordered Caci de Pepe, it was not hot, it was so dry I had to add the butter on the table to it and also add more pepper. Very disappointed to say the least. Waiter apologized but for it to happen every time we go there is crazy!
