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.

There was no wait, food was good. My only complaint was my Bloody Mary, celery didn’t look good and I had to ask for olives.

We had dinner on Saturday night. We had plans to see a play and told the waiter that we had to be done by 7:30. He really wasn't very attentive, never asked if we wanted another drink, disappeared for a long time and didn't make an effort to get is out onetime. The food was ok. The Branzino special didn't look very nice on the plate and it looked like the food was just tossed on the plate. The prices aren't too bad but I wouldn't expect to pay anymore for this food

Excellent service. Food was delicious, portions were very adequate. The fact that they had a buy one, take home one lasagna dish was absolutely generous.

It has a great location and very good service, but the pasta was not good, nor the mediterranean salad. We arrived at 10pm, pasta was cold (ordered al dente) and the mediterranean salad was a mix that we had never seen before. Not good to be an Italian restaurant. Hope this was a singular case.

The food was cold and pasta was hard. I went to celebrate my daughter Birthday and I was disappointed. My daughter didn't like the pasta, it was cold and the chicken was hard.

Waiter was unattended. Never ask how was my food. I ask for to go box. I thought he did not hear me . But he came back with one. I ask for tab, he brought it by stretching out his hands so far from the table. Very uninviting . He should have stayed home and not chose this type of job

We arrived at the time of our reservation. The restaurant was empty except for a party in a separate room. The hostess was on the phone and, despite looking right at us, turned around and ignored us for several minutes. Once we were seated, the waitress began to take our order. Soon after, she disappeared. No one even brought us water. When my wife requested it, it didn't occur to them to bring for anyone else let alone ask if anyone else wanted. Our plates of food sat ignored on the counter until someone other than the waitress spotted them. We never saw the waitress again. My wife had asked for a drink together with our food. The drink showed up when we were completely done eating. We sent it away and asked for the bill. All of this happened in an empty restaurant. I can't imagine what it's like when it's busy.

NOT KID FRIENDLY AT ALL!!!! DON’T BRING KIDS HERE. Kids getting together end of year. Managers, two of them, kicked us out of restaurant for having kids that were too noisy. Two tables of old ladies withOUT kids complained. Managers badgered us to leave giving us checks and taking away food and drinks before we were done. Rude and inconsiderate towards families with kids. If you have kids don’t bring them here.

Our service was great and overall cleanliness was on point. The food was okay. I asked for medium rare steak it came very rare. The calamari was a little moderate cooked but eatable and the mozzarella tomato appetizer had almost green tomatoes

Had a classy lunch date today with my hubby for Father’s Day. LOVE the ambience at BRIO - with the open kitchen, attentive staff and delicious food. Good we booked in advance with Open Table b/c the place was packed with people waiting, and we were sent directly to our table.

When arrived to the restaurant, our reservation number was missing so they just said that we didn’t have a reservation, very surprising and upsetting, finally they gave us a table and when we were leaving that say they found it.
We asked the waiter a bread refill and the basket didn’t come.

Excellent location, pretty ambience, delicious food and the service was good except a little detail that our waitress some times was distracted and we were calling her for some special request and she didn't catch us, but is wasn't all the time, she was kind, that's why I give her 4 stars, but everything else was perfect. I highly recommend this place.

The service at this restaurant was outstanding from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Our server, Jean-Pierre was on point with drinks, apps and entrees. Everything was served in a timely manner and drinks refilled as needed. The food itself was good; nothing to brag about just average Italian cuisine. I would come back if I was in the area and wanting good Italian food but not something I will be craving anytime soon.

The food was good but had to wait a long time before we were even offered our drinks? And the place was not very crowded.
