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 broiled 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.

It was such a great experience! The servers were nothing but nice and the food was amazing. Plus the restaurant just looks great inside and adds to everything. Definitely worth coming back to for date nights

Average food for a pretty high price
$150 bucks for 4. No alcohol 1 appetizer 1 dessert
Pay a lot less at Olive Garden or Carrabbas for better food

It was our 20th anniversary. I even noted same on our Open Table reservation. The restaurant did nothing special, not even wish us Happy Anniversary. I guess they didn’t know?

Ambiance is nice. Calamari was extremely salty and inedible. The waitress kindly switch it out for us with the beef capraccio and crab cake which was very tasty. Lamb chops, seafood pasta was good. Chicken Parmesan was on the dry side. Bellini was a bit on the sweet side. Will try other dishes the next time.

The service was fast and professional, especially impressive given how full it was for Mother’s Day. The food quality, however, has gone downhill since the restaurant got bought out by another company. So-so experience.

We love Brios however the food was not even mediocre on mother’s dat. The service was acceptable, the manager was nice and apologetic , but it took almost 2 hours and was not good.

Delicious food and excellent service by Reece. We had forgotten this was a prom weekend, and as a result, very busy. So, ambience and noise level were not normal. However, the restaurant had no way to control this. We certainly will dine here again in the future

Waitress was in training, $7 side salad was about 7 pieces of lettuce. The ribeye steak wasn’t up to Denny’s standards! It was about 1/2 inch thick and tough as a boot! Restaurant was lass than half full at 7:00pm on a Friday night. Hope this isn’t a sign for going downhill. This has been one of our faves.

If you are going to have 8+ tables on the patio, please make sure you have more than one server. Guy was running around like crazy trying to keep up.

Our waiter was very friendly and took good care of us. But the food was okay. My spaghetti carbonara had minimal sauce and no pancetta in it. Then my friends chicken came out under cooked twice.

Enjoyed a birthday dinner here this past week. Service was very good from Tatiana. Restaurant was very quiet, although this was a Monday night. Weather was beautiful, and we could have opted for outdoor seating as bookings were not heavy. Plates were pedestrian. Appetizer of artichoke/spinach dip came with plenty of flatbreads, but very little dip, leaving several flatbreads to eat solo (not ideal). No additional bread offered at table. Meals were okay. Salmon salad was sent back by server who stated that kitchen hadn't noted a pepper allergy for one diner. When dish finally arrived, it was ill prepared. Base of salad contained a large quantity of chopped lettuce which looked old (probably from original salad), a few (very few) scattered greens, a few tiny dices of tomato, barely a scattering of feta, no flatbread crumbles, and finally the seared salmon. Did not compare to most of the photos posted of this salad. Desserts were fine. Many restaurants in the area to explore, would not return.

We enjoyed Brio’s for Easter brunch. It has improved a great deal since our last visit. The management seemed to be more of a presence; the food had improved and the service was better.

There was a family of 15 there with 4-6 kids under 8 and allowed them to run around. I ordered shrimp & lobster fettuccine. When my food came out it was barely warm and had a piece of plastic film over the top of it. I thought it was lobster scales but wasn’t chewable. I showed the waitress. She brought me out another identical order. My wife and daughter plates both did not have enough sauces on them to cover there noodles which made the entrees dry. We were there celebrating my daughters 20th birthday.

There were four of us dining and one of the persons asked the server if they had gluten free pasta and he replied yes so she ordered off the menu and requested that the item be prepared with gluten free pasta. Sometime later were told that they did not have it. And she ordered something else. Then we were told my wife’s menu selection was also not available. An alternative was selected. Not good!!

Excellent service and great menu and atmosphere,. Our only negative was that our food was not especially hot when served. It was seasoned well and very tasty but warm only. Considering the number of times we've frequented Brio, this was a first.

Royce was an outstanding waiter!
There have been changes to the menu and prices since the new ownership. We wish the old policies and prices had been saved. Used to enjoy the dipping oil provided with bread. Grotto which is just down the street offers this!
