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.

i forgot my ID for drinks, which is my fault, but my husband saw our server go and tell all of her coworkers. they all stared at us sitting at our table, which was very uncomfortable. the food reminded me why i don’t like the eat at chain restaurants—definitely not worth the money that we paid.

- had to wait 45 past our reservation time to be seated
- too loud for any normal conversation
- entree was barely warm, coffee was cold and dessert was a complete loss
- we were a party of 5, 4 entrees arrived together and the 5th didn’t arrive for another 15 minutes
- just a mess of an expensive evening

I've been to BRIO several times. The last two visits were not enjoyable. The noise level in this place is the worst. You can't hear the person next to you. The wait staff can not handle large parties. They seem to fumble with serving meals. One waiter dropped an entire tray of meals and it took a while for staff to react to cleaning it up. I thought the service was rushed. The food is OK but not the best. I don't think I will go back to BRIO.

This was our 2nd visit. We went for mothers day 2019. The food we all ordered just taste like it was warmed up after sitting for awhile. Seafood was over cooked and hard. Our waiter wasn't excited to be working on mother's day so that was another thing to deal with. Overall nice place. Food was not good this visit.

1.Ordered brunch but it had pasta in my French toast!
2. Split the check across my party but the waitress charged my credit card for the entire party. Although she had separated the tickets.
3. Had to repeatedly ask the waitress for napkins, silverware, etc.

Food and service were great but it was just way, way, way too cold inside for anyone in my party of 8. I don't understand why it has to be so unpleasant in there. We sat outside, but even having the doors open blowing all that cold air on us was uncomfortable.

I had the bacon and eggs brunch. it was prepared perfectly. But there were no condiments which normally go along with a meal like that offered. Nor could I get a wait staff person to request such before the food got good and cold. I would have loved to have jelly or jam for the dry toast, and something to put on the potatoes and eggs. The next time I'll know better than to pre-occupy myself with friends and relatives while being served. But pay attention to what I may need to personalize my meal to my taste. this is my sister's favorite restaurant so I know I'll be forced to come back.

We have to wait 30 min. just for our drinks. Beef Carpaccio was not fresh, ravioli was over peppered, you can’t even taste the mushroom. Berries Zabaglione was good, cafe as well.

Staff was very friendly! They let us change seats without a problem. We sat in a booth in the bar, and I believe that is why there was some noise, but it did not disrupt our conversation. Bartender/waitress was very attentive.

I was celebrating my birthday with dinner date with my son. Everything went well. Though I would recommend a little training for the waiter. When a 12yr old is dressed in a blazer and dress shirt, clearly he is being taught proper etiquette. As such, the waiter should have referred to him as Sir and not Buddy then Bud throughout the meal.

Once6 big problem..... 2 of us were sitting outside, under the reservation name. The 3rd person came after us, and gave the reservation name and was seated INSIDE. We were each waiting for the other to arrive!! A mutual text, after 15 minutes, alerted us to the mistake made by the front end!! We had to pick up and move in side. Someone wasn't paying attention at the front. 3/12/19. 6:00 reservation under Bette Raskin.
Our server was wonderful and the food was great, after the faux pas of the front!!

We really enjoyed the food at Brio. The occasion was my daughter’s 16th birthday. The restaurant was not crowded and it was puzzling that the service was not very attentive or timely. It will not dissuade me from coming back as we do enjoy the food. Kudos to the chefs
