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. To learn more, go to www.BrioItalian.com

We are located at City Creek Mall, an upscale open-air shopping center. Parking is underground with the best access to Brio from the 100 South entrance. We are located one block from The Salt Palace Convention Center & the LDS Temple. We offer Happy Hour Monday through Friday 3:30pm to 6:30pm & $5.00 Martini’s All Day every day. We also have several private dining areas to accommodate 20-120 guests.

Prompt seating. Food was OK, seemed to be slow service at first but then the food server was attentive. All food came out at the same time, which was unusual as one was a starter salad and the other was pasta. Which I sent back to wait till I was finished. Therefore, it was cold when It was returned to me. Pricing seems a little bit steep for pasta and a salad ($35.00).

Booked a time slot for slightly before my entire party was suppose to arrive since it was my friends birthday and his guests were a surprise. Unfortunately I didn’t get seated for 15 min and the entire party ended up arriving and waiting by the door. What a bust. Secondly I arranged with a hostess to have a birthday surprise cake brought towards the end of the meal. Restaurant staff was aware this was a birthday dinner. Guess what, the waitress brought the check and no birthday cake/dessert. She also didn’t posses the manners to work in such establishment. She was rather rowdy, unrefined and spoke poor English. Table we got seated at was also subpar, I specified this was a special night and requested a nice seating arrangement. There were a lot of great and secluded tables in the restaurant that were open yet we got seated at the worst one. Although the food was great I won’t be coming back.

The server was rude and way over his head. Our entrees came out before our appetizers, very lame. He didn’t even offer any solution, so I declined the appetizers. Very weird

Nice place for a date, service and atmosphere were great. The food was good but not as good as I would expect for the price.

Saturday night dinner after a play in Salt Lake City. Excellent taste and quality of food. Really enjoyed the lobster bisque - likely the best I have had. Recommended.

We enjoyed a business lunch at BRIO at City Creek. Our group had 12 people, and the wait staff was very responsive and accommodating. We were set in a private room, which was perfect for our discussion and involvement. The food was well prepared, and it appeared that everyone was well satisfied with their menu choices, and the restaurant.

Food was excellent with the exception of the Caesar salad which needed more dressing (which was brought when requested). Took awhile to be recognized after being initially seated but server was great after that.

We had a reservation for 7:30. Thinking a reservation for seven would get a decent table. We were seated right next to the kitchen that was very loud and servers always going passed us and being very noisy. Was trying to get over this issue of table setting, and then we had Carlos who from the start was very impatient and was always rushing us. You couldn’t really understand him and was not very accommodating with our orders. We didn’t think he did a great job, so we didn’t leave the high end tip. Carli’s then gave The stare down. I’m a great topper when the waiter is good and deserves it. I left a tip and he should have been happy with that. Not impressed. No high-end restaurant should have tables set by the kitchen period.

I ordered the shrimp and pasta. Not liking garlic with shrimp, I asked it be cooked without it. When the dish arrived but was too dry, I asked for and received some alfredo sauce...PERFECT!

Brio on Regent St. is very new, huge, in City Creek Center. We went there at 8 p.m. on a Saturday after a concert with reservation. The place is very close to a Trax stop. On entering we were led immediately to a table. A waiter promptly gave us menus and shortly thereafter took our orders. The wait for food delivery was very short and made easier with a breadbasket with delectable sourdough bread. Wife ordered chicken marsala ($18); there was another chicken item on the menu which was organic free-range. Waiter assured us that this chicken was also of that type. (?) I ordered gorgonzola beef medaliions (3 medallions) medium rare ($24). Both dishes were served with a nice selection of fresh vegetables (including tomato and red pepper) and potato puree.. The medallions were very nice indeed. I also liked the vegetables. One criticisms were that both dishes could have been less ample (and correspondingly cheaper). Wife commented that the dishes could have been served more prettily. I ordered a glass of red wine (Sartori-Italian), $8 nice.We did not have desert like tiramisu, $7. In summary, it is a nice and comfortable place with good food, especially good for an after concert meal. The restaurant is open until 11 p.m.

Not happy with our meals. We ordered the special bruschetta, mozzarella and grilled red pepper. The bread was barely toasted and the the grilled red pepper was mostly raw, wasn’t left on the grill long enough.

I ordered the chicken Marsala. The sauce was very bland and did not have any flavor, let alone of Marsala wine, which has a distinctive taste. The vegetables were nicely done as were the potatoes and the chicken itself. My partner had the chicken rigatoni pasta. He also found it to be lacking in flavor, very bland.

Our salad was drowning in dressing after I requested light dressing. Our main courses were not great dues to the use of heavy oil and cream

It wasn’t all it’s made out to be. The meals are expensive for little food. Our server only came to take the order and deliver food. They appeared to be burdened that another glass of water was requested. The location was convenient and appeared to be clean.

Brio is a great place to eat with excellend food. Service yesterday was only average and we felt rushed to leave by the server which is unusual. In past visits, we've had excellent service so we were a little disappointed with this visit. Overall, it was still very good. I sure wish they'd bring back the original Crème Brule.

Before Play dining. Halibut "Fish of the Day" special was ok. Halibut was a bit over done and dry, we have had better Halibut meals at BRIO. Will continue to eat at BRIO before our evenings at the Eccles Theater

My daughter and 8 year old granddaughter wanted to split a chicken pesto spaghetti dish. Waitress suggested portions might be too small after my daughter inquired as to their size. My daughter instead ordered two full-sized dishes. They were huge. Enough that boxes for leftovers were needed to go. My daughter felt the waitress was being dishonest in order to garner a higher bill. Food was mediocre at best.

In town for a couple of days, and this was near our hotel. Ambiance is nice, but there are a few lights that are burned out. Service was quite good—we ordered carpaccio, which was a very good size, plus a salad and shrimp/lobster pasta (both of those to share). Both came out on separate plates for each. Unfortunately, the pasta had very little flavor.

It was much too dim inside the restaurant. The smell of fish was a bit too noticeable. The waitress however was very pleasant. Two rest room stalls are not enough either.
