BRIO Tuscan Grille - Irvine - Spectrum Center
Service was horrid!
The noise level in the main part of the restaurant is a tad too loud for us - but still love eating here!
This is our "go to" place for a nice dinner date, or for dining with friends. I'm addicted to their Grilled Salmon Fresca! And, hubby loves their Center-Cut 7 oz. Filet Mignon. We had great service again this time, as we celebrated a birthday. The only disappointment was that, for our birthday complimentary dessert, it was just a scoop of Vanilla Nut ice cream.
The service was slow. My food came only partially warm and coagulated.
Great menu and excellent service
Uninspired chain Italian
We had a gathering of 12 for moms out night and it was suitable for this kind of meeting, we had fun and everything was okay. Thank you
My salmon salad was over-dressed and soggy. Salmon was nicely cooked and flavorful. My associate’s mediterranean salad looked nice but he said it was bland but refreshing.
The service was excellent and since I was in a meeting I didn’t tell them my salad was bad.
Easy park and walk from garage. I was there for lunch.
Very lovely place! Was there for a brunch with my bridesmaids and enjoyed the menu.
Beat fresh lemonade and Italian margarita!
You have to sit in the patio if you don’t want to go deaf from the bar noise.
Good food, good ambience, good service. Would definitely come back again.
Really enjoyed our dinner. Josh was a great waiter.
The service was real slow and our Server was lame.
He asked whose birthday it was and I told him my daughter whose sitting under the Happy Birthday 20 years old balloons.
I took 15 mins to have him bring back a candle lit icecream and no one sang Happy Birthday to my daughter.
Food was good and pricing was ok. Wish service was better.
Wont be going back
Worse and worse every time we go. The food portion gets smaller, and chicken more dry.
The restaurant itself is lovely. Food was very good. The service was ok. We never received refills on our drinks and it was a rather hot day. It wasn’t busy in the restaurant and yet we only saw our waiter twice.
Awesome place to dine!
Great menu and great food! Really enjoyed the restaurant and will return soon.
I would definitely recommend Brio, the food was excellent, the service was excellent and it was a great experience. Prices aren't bad either! Great place!
Great meal, service and atmosphere!
New menu. Everything was great. We ordered beef carpaccio, salmon salad and pesto fetuccini with lobster and shrimps
I threw a baby shower luncheon on the patio. The food and service were both excellent! They are extremely accomodating! Will do it again!
The restaurant when it’s busy is loud. The waitress had a difficult time taking our order. We felt like we had to yell our order for her to hear it. The bathroom was in an odd location. You go through the server area to get to it. Not sure if that’s sanitary.
Unfortunately, this will be my last visit to this restaurant. I don't know what about this place screams bring all your unruly, undisciplined children to dinner after work??? Both times we have been surrounded by kids screaming and running around while parents completely ignore them, and waiters and diners are dodging them. It's impossible to carry on a conversation without yelling. I wish they could figure out a section for families and another for everyone else. The food is very reasonable and tasty, it's just not a great ambiance.
As always, food was outstanding. The service, however, was far below your normal standard. We had to ask if our food was ready and the waiter said, (Oh, I think I see it up, I’ll check”. A waitress actually brought our lunch, we’ve had her before and she is always on top of everything!
Great food and great service!! Had a great anniversary at this restaurant.
Asked for bread when we arrived. After multiple requests, it came out after the food. Food came out under cooked. Sent back 2 times. Server and manager didn’t acknowledge or apologize.
We were late and they were still professional and we had great customer service for my daughter’s birthday
Enjoyed my evening out with my hubby.
Good food great time
Everyone was nice, courteous, but service is very slow.
The food was delicious. I had the grilled salmon and even though it was calorie friendly, the flavor was amazing. Will definitely go back.
Great service and food
We had a very enjoyable dinner. Our waiter Josh was amazing and went above and beyond to make the visit fun.
I love Brio. They rarely (very rarely) take a misstep. The stuffed French toast was wonderful -- the filling tasty, the fruit at it's best, and the accompanying bacon crispy. My guest and I both had it, although the shrimp and polenta was tempting, too. My guest was an elderly lady who doesn't move very quickly and uses a walker. She is also almost blind. Our server couldn't have been more patient or kind. All reasons why I keep returning to this outstanding restaurant.
Even tho' it is a small chain, the food is topnotch. The service almost always is great. The room is airy and comfortable EXCEPT for the fact that it gets VERY loud as it fills up. The best bet is to get there before 1800h and don't linger. On the other hand, if you like VERY noisy places then this is a 5 star restaurant.
After eating here at least once a month for a few years, I'm still never disappointed in the food or the service.
Took my Mom for her birthday, and she loved it. My husband and I like this place for date night. Waiter Josh is great.
Celebrating friends anniversary. Had a wonderful time and the food was amazing as always.
Great place for brunch! Good value. My veggie omelette was delicious.
Food was mediocre
