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.

Ate pasta. The servers are given a small cheese shredder that they cant even use properly and its awkward calamari are tasteless and s are the zucchini. But all that is passable... the bathroom capacity is NOT. THIS IS A HUGE PLACE WITH DOZEN OF TABLES AND THEY LITERALLY HAVE ONE TOILET FOR THE ENTIRE PLACE. ONE! Ive been to gas stations with better bathrooms than thia

Dinner was very good. The waitress started out attentive and then seemed to get pretty busy later but she was still nice. The atmosphere was nice outside. The restaurant next door was playing live music. We enjoyed our date their for valentine's day.

The food was amazing however when we arrived the hostess were talking and I understand that they were busy but they let us at the front for several minutes until someone welcomed us. And even when we have a reservation we had to wait around 15 minutes to be sited

Our server, Lisa, was outstanding. She was very attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. From the moment she came to our table, her service was top notch. She used her creativity and went above and beyond to create a nonalcoholic drink for me that I was craving. The food was delicious and she even had the kitchen split a dish that my husband and I were planning to share. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our experience all because of Lisa.

It was Valentines Day. The food is always good at BRIO so I decided to get a reservation and my husband and I enjoyed ourselves. Even though it was a busy night, the manager himself started our service. I will most definitely visit that location again.

Waitress was very good. Attentive. Repeated order. Kitchen and delivery staff had to do it three times. They were nice but can’t have a dinner when 1 dish is late. 1st time requested takin both back to be warm. 2nd & 3rd did not. Result was I ate alone for a while and when my wife’s dish came ate the rest cold.

Service was lacking. Took almost an hour to place an entree order and 45 minutes to receive it. Server was in the weeds and rarely checked on us. Ordered the Bistecca steak and it arrived with no steak knife. Food runner who delivered it said he would get the knife but after 7 minutes of waiting I walked up to food line and requested a steak knife. In all, 2.5 hours. Brutal especially with 2 kids ages 5 and 7.

About done with this place. 2nd time with a bad experience. They are no way gonna get me to strike out. .... Poorly managed. Hostesses were not friendly at all. Service was very slow on a slow night. No excuse. Food is just average. Went for a birthday and they were notified. They didn’t even acknowledge it. Just a pathetic place. Too many new restaurants to go to. RIP BRIO. Your time is limited.

Terrible service and mediocre food. We had to get napkin/utensils from empty nearby table, were told we didn’t get bread because it’s brought “on request”, didn’t get glass of wine until 15 minutes after ordered and only because we asked again. Shrimp pasta dish had three small shrimp and lots of dry pasta. Chicken in chicken pesto was overcooked and dried out. Nothing was done when we told waiter. To top things off there’s horrible loud “ultra concert” style music coming from Brimstone next door and you can’t hear yourself think let alone have a conversation! Will not be back

15,00 $ per bottle cork fee is excessive. Next time, I’ll by a glass of theirs and that’ll it. Be specific on your order otherwise it may be well done. Server was inexperienced but managed ok.

Hostess not very friendly and welcoming. We were told bread was in the oven, only when I asked and almost when the main plate was about to arrive it was served. Napkin cloth has a dirty and awful smell, I requested to replace. Food took forever to arrive, the place was almost empty...don’t understand the delay since most of the plates ordered included pasta (quick recipes) food arrived and one of the “pasta dishes” came in wrong missing ingredients. Food was ok, I’ve been at this same restaurant several times before but I don’t think I’ll come back, there are small new restaurants in the area that provide better experience overall.

It was a good way to use our gift card, but we always enjoy dining here. There is always something new and interesting on the menu, and the wine selection is great. Our waiter was knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. And we always love the carpaccio!

The restaurant is beautiful. The service was great! The food was delicious. The noise level was high, however that is to be expected in this area on a Saturday night. Overall my husband and I had a wonderful experience and will be back!

My order was wrong. The server was very nice, just very slow. It was not busy. However, when the food runner brought the food and I asked him a question, he said I have no idea and left.

A great atmosphere for any occasion. I to my family if 5 and had a nice meal. The final cost was about $121 with tip. A bit pricey if your ask me, but worth every penny with my family.

First let me say I deducted a point because my wife called the restaurant to make reservations only to be told they were booked solid. 5 minutes later I went to my open table app and bam a table for 4! Now that being said everything else was great! The waitress was very helpful and make some great drink recommendations. And the food was perfect as well.

The place smelled like cleaner and that musty smell from the bar along with the fruit flies. We sat outside instead of inside. The outside bar had the same strong smell but fortunately it was windy and that helped.
