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

We are on the Northwest corner of the Scottsdale Quarter Mall. We have a “Live Music” Thursday Nights from 530pm to 9pm. We have Happy Hour Monday through Friday 3:30pm to 6:30pm. Scottsdale Quarter is also home to “IPIC Theaters.” We are walking distance to the Kierland Westin Resort and Spa which offers a number of amenities to include some great golf. We are located 19 miles from Arizona State University.

Fish was severely overlooked. When informed of the situation the manager took care of it. The service was still very good. We have eaten there before and will still go again.

Normally, Brio is fantastic. Today it was just meh. 6:15 dinner time. Went there mostly for Lobster Bisque which is usually delicious. This time it was luke-warm, the hint of spice heat was not there. Do not like the bowl change. Does not retain heat like the previous ones. Crispy calamari was not crispy but the dip was very good. Waiter was great, prompt with all the food and drinks. Shrimp and Lobster Linguine was clumpy and barely had enough sauce to keep it from gluing together. Overall, an unsatisfying experience. Wonder if I can trade in my gift cards for Carraba's.

Our dinner was fabulous. I had the Ribeye and I was happily surprised by the quality and tenderness of the steak, it was excellent. My family had the lasagna, carbonara and pesto chicken pasta and they all really enjoyed their meals as well. Our server was friendly, knew the menu and was very attentive. We really enjoyed our visit and hope to be back!

We had an amazing date night! Our server Cody was super friendly, knowledgeable & gave us space but helped when necessary. This was our 1st time at Brio. Our dinner was delicious & plenty! I had the Grilled Chicken Marsala & my husband had lasagne. The ambiance was very romantic & the tables were very well spaced out.

Today we celebrated our 10 year old twins. We had a party of 3 adults, 4 children (9,10,10 & 12) and a 7 month old baby. The hostess was very friendly. They sat us at a perfect table to accommodate our large party. Our waitress Sara was amazing! She was engaging with our children and pleasant. She was also very prompt and helpful. Our orders came out on time and every single item we ordered was delicious. The children asked if we can come back tomorrow:) Great place for a large family or just a quiet date night. This was our first experience at Brio and we will definitely be back!

food sat a little before arriving at table. Medium well steak was too well and salty. Cook forgot the lobster in the shrimp and lobster fettuccine. However the waitress brought some out separately. Service was very helpful and friendly. Outside chairs need to desperately be replaced. Extremely narrow and uncomfortable.

So horribly loud in this restaurant. Literally an empty restaurant and you still cannot hear the person next to you. Kitchen is also very loud! Always something being dropped and broken. Food is salty and wait times are slow for food. Great location just needs major decor updating and address noise issues! Lastly, chose this restaurant for Father’s Day because of ease to pull up for senior citizens (with walkers!!) for drop off. The valet on duty (SQ @ noon on 6/16) was extremely hostile and rude for our pulling up for :10 to load seniors in two cars. There was No one behind us!!

Pretty good for a chain restaurant. The service was outstanding and accommodating. The rack of lamb was good, however could have used more spices. The pasta dish was a bit disappointing as the sauce was quite bland. All in all, though, would certainly try it again.

We have always enjoyed dining at Brio, however, this visit to celebrate our wedding anniversary was disappointing. Service was lackluster at best. My husband ordered the salmon Fresca which was delicious. My shrimp entree was over cooked and under-seasoned. Our dessert selection of berries with zabaglione sauce was a mixed bag. The fruit was fresh and luscious, but the sauce was not enjoyable. It was not the experience we expected from Brio.

Arrived early, at 5pm. Service was still a bit slow even though it was pretty empty. Two of the dishes were cold (ravioli) and mine was bland and boring. I had the grilled chicken with pasta and mozzarella. There was literally one little tiny chunk of cheese. When I pointed it out to waiter her said there was more mixed in. There wasn’t. Chicken was like a processed piece of breast. I would be happy not to return here.

Bar Service was slow and got drinks wrong three times in a row .... table service seemed confused and disjointed ... ordered salads that didn't come until after the entree was served ... valet parking came to the table and insisted on being paid before we were finished dining, probably so they could go home early ...
We used to like this restaurant, but will think again before we return.

I always order beef carpaccio and the meat is usually flawless, very thin and tender. This time around the meat seemed thicker, and too tough to chew. It wasn’t smooth, looked like another cut of beef and it had way too many veins which made it very hard to chew and swallow. I left half my plate and I usually eat it all, just couldn’t chew anymore.
We also ordered 2 bowls of soup and waiter brought us 2 cups, insisted it was bowls, and we had to tell him it was the wrong size once more, and he finally brought another 2 cups of soup to make up for it.
Overall, not the best and usual pleasant dining experience we have had.

Service is usually good here but tonight it was off. We had a server who told us it was the third night she was pretty inexperienced. Didn’t know the menu and couldn’t answer questions. We had to track her down for drink refills and other requests. And then it seemed she forgot to come back with them. I think this girl could have used a week or so of shadowing an experienced server before putting her on the floor by herself.
