Steaks were over done. Husband didn't eat his because it was over done. Waiter didn't refill drinks, asked and still forgot to do it.

We enjoyed a nice dinner on the patio outside. However, the service was very slow to get our drinks and food (long, long waits). The food was all very good and fresh. They might just be short staffed.

Wow! Not hard to believe their parent has filed for bankruptcy. They totally messed up our delivery. Did get my money back. Tried the patio for happy hour. Our anniversary. Seated bed drinks hostess. Ordered drinks. They came and were told we couldn't order food from the Hi tops. For happy hour. I course our drink were full price. We moved 8 ft. One of our party had bad hips hurt in a Hi top chair. Didn't matter move. We moved and Ordered. It all came at once. Not room on small rounds Hi top. She made it fit. Couldn't see table.
We combined stuff so we could eat. Have to remove extra plates. Never saw a server twice. Asked for a take home box. Never came. We saw where they were got our own. Finally Bill came pd and left!!!!@ NEVER TO RETURN

We booked the venue for a First Communion celebration after the church ceremony. We loved our server. She was efficient and relaxed. The food was on point. We were so happy. We were not rushed. We brought our own celebration cake. The lunch was wonderful. Thank you.

We were a party of eight (five adults and three children), eating a variety of foods: appetizers, soups, and main courses (it was mid-afternoon). My mother and sister had both ordered the chicken Milanese and were totally unimpressed with the the breaded chicken cutlet, which they both said tasted pre-prepared. Everything else, though, was delicious, e.g., lobster bisque and fried calamari with aioli (nice, light batter on the calamari, and the bisque was wonderful). Brio's isn't cheap, so I'm not sure what happened with the chicken breast, but everything else was great.

Pre Covid-19 we enjoyed going to brio. Went about once every 4-6 weeks. Now the food was substandard. I asked for grilled shrimp on my chopped salad and it wasn’t. It looked filmy and didn’t taste good. The chopped salad was not the same as pre Covid-19 either. The lamb chops were overcooked and small in size for the price. One waitress served entire area and was very slow. Took a long time to get a glass of wine and then to take our order.

We will not be back!!!!

Headed to Brio for Easter brunch. I knew it would be busy but looked forward to a good time. The waitress was mediocre. I’m sure she had many tables but I expected more. It took a while for drinks and refills, food was lukewarm and her follow up was meh.

This was the first time I’d received this type of service at Brio. Being with family was great.

Food was tasted great mostly — BUT one entree of lamb chops were overdone... and lava cakes came out w/ completely melted ice cream and stiff.

The biggest issue was that the restaurant was clearly understaffed. Everything came out at a glacial pace. We were sent several rounds of bread, as we waited for appetizers and entrees. And our waiter was doing her best, managing multiple tables.

Everyone was friendly and food was mostly good, but they were not ready for the Easter rush.

Had reservation for 3 pm, felt this would be safest time so we could get out quickly. The restaurant filled up soon after we were seated. Server came soon but we weren't ready to order. Appears to be short staffed because we saw him all over restaurant and it took a while to return to us. Our early dinner was 2 1/2 hours long. Food was very good.

This is one of our favorite regular places. The carpaccio is so perfect. We haven't found another restaurant that does it this well. Our server, Billy, was attentive, professional, and did a great job. Their fresh bread is delicious and plentiful. The wine selection by the glass was adequate - we each enjoyed our choice. Our table was ready when we arrived and the spacing was very comfortable in the dining room.
