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.

Great atmosphere. However, our waiter was rather forgetful when serving our table.

It was all really good, except for when we found a piece of paper in my Brother’s pasta. They took care of it immediately, but that still shouldn’t be happening.

Great service, excellent food, nice atmosphere; except, at times the music did not compliment the restaurant. At times the an individual woking in the kitchen would yell very loud at a service member and that was very disturbing to hear from the dining area; otherwise, great place.

Took my mother and sister out for Mother’s Day brunch. Food was amazing. Service was amazing. Luis was a well-informed and very attentive server. He filled up our waters and brought extra bread without us having to ask. The general manager came out and checked on us which I appreciated; she even went out of her way to get my mom extra sauce for her chicken.

Everyone was amazing and the food was pretty good but my only complaint would be the hostess we had that day. She looked miserable and not personable at all. The tables around us said the same. We were there for Mother’s Day and it was terribly inappropriate.

Went mother's day so it wasn't a normal day. Had to wait past reservation time about 25 minutes, but not unexpected. I'd come just for the shrimp & eggplant appetizer. Food was good service was good for busy day. Had to rearrange table seats so we weren't staring at the wall, but it was a nice day.

1st time, the only problem I didn't like was the rush gave 1 hour for wating from the time your seated so raring felt rushed even then the food came out quickly. 2hours is more reasonable time for dining, But, everything else was ok

We were advised at check-in that we had a time limit to eat because it was mothers day. Wish I would have known this when I made reservations, would have looked somewhere else.

Ran out of coffee cups- had to drink out of a styrofoam cup. I went to a nice restaurant, not Mc Donald’s

Food came out cold- wasn’t both entrees back

Creamer was ice cold- so everything you’d put it in coffee coffee was then ice cold. Server said normally they warm the creamer cups- wasn’t sure why they are ice cold

Overall went for mother’s day brunch and had a terrible experience, kind of ruined the day. They were ill prepared and unable to handle the number of guests present.

BRIO used to be consistently good, last two times I was there (mother’s day brunch) and about 3 months ago entrees came out cold. Save your $$, don’t eat here, go to Cheesecake Factory or Kings Fishhouse

Love the ambiance of this restaurant but the service is always slow and rarely the food will be hot. Not sure if they don't have food warmers or the kitchen is too small or what but it never fails. I keep coming back because of the ambiance.

Our server was nice but we only saw her three times the entire time we were there. She got our order, was there when the food came out, and lastly to drop the check off. She did not refill drinks or bring out items we requested before our meals came out. We had to ask multiple times and even though she said she’d be right back with something, she never did come back. It was really disappointing since we were there celebrating Mother’s Day. If we ever do come back we would want to be served by anybody other than the server we had tonight. We hoped that the server nearby would actually take care of us instead because at one point she did check on us to see if we were okay. That was more than our original serve did and it was the only positive thing to come out of tonight.

Excellent food. I had the shrimp and lobster fettuccine and a salad.
The server was attentive without being overbearing.
Our reservation was for 5:00 PM and the noice level was very low.
Was very impressed!

We've been there several times and enjoyed the experience overall. The lobster bisque is great, as is the bread service. The calamari is too spicy with the jalapeno peppers added, and many of the entrees are overpriced. Also, the drink service for cocktails is very very slow--not so for wine, but definitely for cocktails. Still, good location in Victoria Gardens and we will come back for the bisque.

It was Easter so I expected it to be busy. We had reservations and got seated quickly the problem was the wait time for the food was 40 mins we had to ask for our food once we got it, it was terrible. Over cooked not hot burnt just horrible. This was suppose to be our Easter gathering and it was ruined. Then to make up they brought out a salad that was awful and soggy. Very disappointing and ruined our holiday. Next year I will stay home and cook myself

It took an hour to get our food. Once it did one meal had a hair in it, one meals lobster wasn't cooked, another meals spaghetti was dry, and the last one had only 2 pieces of chicken in it. It took 30 mins to get bread and when asked for more because we were waiting for our food, it never came.
Manager comped our meals but we will never be back

It was Easter and so I expected it to be very busy but even though I had a reservation, we had to wait an additional 1/2 hour. It was so crowded and it seemed to be overbooked and not enough wait staff was available. We never rec'd plates for our bread. And we had to ask 3 different staff to bring more bread. The wait for our meals was long but what a disappointment when my granddaughters Eggs Benedict arrived - the eggs were basically hard boiled and the English Muffins hard as a rock. We returned that and she waited another 1/2 hour for her replacement order of French Toast which after all that time was served with NO syrup. Another 15 minute wait for that and that meal ended up cold. We love Brio but will never return on a holiday. It was ridiculous but I do know our waiter was working as hard as he could under the circumstances so we commend him.

Easter Sunday was packed. We had a reservation and got us seated promptly but it took a while for us to get our drinks and order. once we put our order in it took almost an hour. They also forgot some things but the good news is that the manager recognized this and apologized and took care of us. that’s customer service for you! For that, it’s worth coming back for sure.
