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.

We always love coming to Brio for a delicious meal in a family friendly environment. The table they put us at this time was terrible. It was in the direct path of the restroom so there were constant people passing by bumping into my purse that was hanging on my chair. Couple that with the fact that it was entirely too close to the table directly across the walking path. They sat elderly people at that table and it’s a shame because they were packed in like sardines. The service was just ok. Our waiter was polite but not as attentive as he should have been. But I’ll give him a little grace because it was a busy night with Father’s Day and graduation dinners. All in all, we will definitely return because the meals are always good but we will ask for a different table next time.

This restraunt was amazing!! This was our first time going and the staff went above and beyond for us. We were given a complimentary raw dough ball for my 6 year old to mold and have fired! We also were given a complimentary roasted red pepper bruschetta that was HEAVEN on a plate. We have the spinach dip appetizer, I ordered the lobster ravioli and my husband ordered steak and lobster. The steak was so tender I could cut it with a butter knife! I wish I had one of these restaurants near me, it was overall a great experience!

I’ve always liked brio and probably talked it up a little too much. I had only ever been to the one in FL which was really good. This one was super noisy but expected since it’s the spectrum. Service was good, food came out unbelievably quick but honestly was just ok and looked like it was thrown together in a sec. I would go back again but overall didn’t think this one was as fancy and elevated as others. $ a little overpriced

Food was good but service was extremely slow. Took along time for food to come out from kitchen. Had to constantly ask to have waters refilled. Server would walk by table but never check on us. Cocktails looked great in pictures but their pours our very weak. Ordered martinis and when they arrived the glasses were barely 1/2 full. Ordered a 2nd round thinking the 1st round was just a fluck....it wasn't.

Our group ordered different things. I really enjoyed the Mediterranean Shrimp-very good! Another friend enjoyed the lobster bisque. All who had the wedge salad liked those too. The lunch size pasta choice with pancetta, spinach, cheese... had varying opinions. Some thought it was lacking flavor; another person thought that it was too salty. We all enjoyed our desserts. The service was excellent, and the setting on the covered patio was very pleasant and conducive to a nice conversation.

I like Brio for the ambiance and great Happy Hour. The food is good but I still have to tweak my order to fit my Ketogenic diet. But they are willing to do this. Our server, Stephanie was so friendly and professional. I will ask for her next time we dine there.

Table for 4 with reservation and we were seated right away. We took some friends for their first time to Brio and they loved the experience. Every food item was prepared well. The lobster bisque is fantastic. Our waitress was Kareen and she was a delight. Highly recommend.

Stephanie, our server, was delightful! She had an upbeat personality and was extremely attentive. She made sure to be present and checked on us several times during our meal. We were there for a celebratory business lunch and she made sure that it was extra special. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the food and the atmosphere was perfect for the occasion. I would recommend Brio for future business functions as well as a night out with friends.

Nice atmosphere and good service, but the food was a little too salty for me. I will try it again and request no salt but it is an Italian restaurant and I’m guessing everything is already prepared with it.

We recently enjoyed brunch at Brio with a large group of family and friends. The food was delicious. Our favorites included the Spicy Shrimp and Eggplant appetizer, Kale Caesar Salad and the Pasta alla Vodka. The service was excellent; Mandy came by often to make sure we had everything we needed and even gave us a complimentary creme brulee to cap off our celebration. We will be back.
