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.

We’ve eaten here many times and the noise level is usually loud but tonight it was on another level. This topped with the fact that they say someone else at our table after we checked in for our reservation, it took 15 minutes to get a server once we were sat and another 15 for drinks, then our waiter Kevin forgot to put in our food order. One of the worst dining out experiences we’ve had at any restaurant in a long time. Will be a long time before we venture back.

Experience was excellent. Only negative was when I made reservations I was asked if this was a special occasion and I responded with Anniversary but nothing was ever acknowledged. A little disappointing since it was our 51st wedding anniversary.

Great food at a good value. The calamari is great as well as the Gorgonzola encrusted beef medallions. Swordfish was very thin but tasty. Service was good with 8 in our party. I recommend sitting outside on a beautiful night.

I am a regular customer and last nights service was beyond horrible. We had to find our own chairs to accommodate our entire party, an hour and a half before they brought water, food services with now plates and no wait staff around to get them. An hour to be served drinks. People receiving second rounds of drinks when others hadn’t received their first. Three conversations with the manager to get our problems resolved. HORRENDOUS!

The flatbread arrived cold. When it was delivered the second time, we didn’t even have a chance to eat it and they delivered the main dishes. We sent them back until we were finished. My husband and I ordered the same thing and the dishes looked entirely different. It had tomatoes in it, but the menu did not mention tomatoes. I never would have ordered it. My meal was replaced but my husband ate alone and then I ate alone. It was a terrible meal and we will never go back again.

BRIO Tuscan Grille was beautifully decorated and very clean. The staff was very friendly and was available every time we needed them. The food was amazing, we had the Beef Medallions. The beef was cooked exactly the way we liked it and it was very tender and juicy for being well-done. The starter, Roasted Red Pepper Bruschetta, was so delicious and good. We will definitely come back again.

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.
