Italian
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.

And we have recommended Brio Grille to many in our development. We are aware of at least 5 families taking our advise. The food was excellent. Great sized menu as usual. But what truly made this experience above all others, was our waiter. He was very exceptional. Could not do enough to keep us happy. Food was delivered hot and always with a smile. We never had to ask for drink refills, he was right there. And the fact that he had several other tables. The ambiance is always fantastic. This was our fifth time for dinner. Believe me, we would be eating here many more times but it takes us an hour and a half to get there. But we’ll worth it. Prices are within going limits, never prohibitive. Hoping to see you soon.

The hostesses are super friendly when you walk in the door. Service is always good, you have some upbeat servers who engage you with small talk and then you have those servers who are nice but don’t have much to say. I’m okay with either, just sharing my perception. Their entree’s are one of kind and not your typical Italian dishes which I like, even their lasagna is not what you think and it was delicious. Brio also has an amazing brunch and my favorite item on that menu is the Sicilian Omelette13.00
Smoked ham, Applewood bacon, sausage, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, Mozzarella, brunch potatoes (1580 cal)
The ambience is perfect!

One of our favorite restaurants! Always great service, delicious food and a well timed meal. We both started with the chopped salad - fresh, crisp greens and great dressings. Delicious! Went to our favorites for entrees - Spaghetti Bolognese for my wife, Shrimp and Lobster Fettuccine for me. As always we were mopping up the last bits of sauce with the great bread. Yum! Glasses of wine - Valpolicella for my wife, Wente Chardonnay for me - capped off another great meal. Keep up the great work!

The food and service was excellent, but the noise level from both the other patrons and the music overhead was very loud. Definitely would pick something other than the 70's and 80's pop music that was playing, maybe something more along the lines of Sinatra. My husband and I had a hard time hearing each other, and our server, at times.

We made a special trip coming thru Delaware to Maryland just to return to this restaurant! We like the ambiance but especially the food. The pasta with shrimp and lobster was delicious. We also liked the Chicken marsala. Both visits our waiter/waitress were friendly and eager to please. Also loved the molten chocolate cake with super creamy ice cream. Delizioso! Looking forward to going back again

First the food. My meal was ordered medium rare and was delivered as well done. Additionally mashed potatoes were served instead of fingerling potatoes. Pasta was served over cooked for another person. The server was asked to bring water several times before we received any water. The waiter kept placing the serving tray on the back of a booth where others were sitting. Other servers dragged chairs across the floor to set up an adjacent table just to drag all the chairs across the tile floor again to break it all down. It was quite a racket. Considering the cost, not a good experience.

My server/bartender was attentive. I asked for the wedge salad… Deconstructed… And that’s exactly what I got which was perfect. The chicken Marcella under a brick was not as tasty as I thought it would be , It had a good flavor and was edible. I did see the manager Travis hovering all over, he must’ve recognized me from the last time I was there last week when I had a terrible meal. I guess he was attentive to see that everything went well, at least that’s how it seemed.

The food was extremely good for a chain. The filet melted in my mouth. Mashed potatoes were good and the roasted veggies were great. However, both nights I waited a long time, almost 2hrs from start to finish. Spoke to the manager and hopefully service will improve. The food will bring me back.

It must have been an off night. Seating was cramped. Service staff was initially uncertain who was taking our table of 9. Because of close quarters much reaching and "excuse me's". Not the best for large groups.

We go to Brio every year or two as we reserve going there for special occasions. The food is amazing and the staff always knowledgeable and friendly. Our visit was to our expectations but we were very sad to learn that the Porkchops and especially the Bruschetta (which we LOVED) have been removed from the menu !?!? We understand Brio is under new management so if you’re reading these reviews PLEASE bring them back !?! lol
