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.

Everything was overall good however my grandfather’s crab cake was very dry, tasteless, and overall a disappointment. He usually loves the crab cake so it was not a pleasant experience for him.

The service was a tad slow although not super busy. Had to ask for drinks to be sent over a few times and the food was good but some items not hot enough.

Brio's is always consistently good - food, ambiance and service. We love the area it's in as well, and parking is easy, even if you don't want to valet.

Brio's Restaurants are totally different in each area. We've been to other Brio's and haven't been satisfied with their food. City Place and Boca Raton have good food for this restaurant company.

The Carbonara was not very hot, the portion was small, and I have had better in other restaurants. Not happy with that dish - will never order it again.
on the positive side the server was very attentive - which was nice.

Food was fair. Definitely not worth the price. We went there because we had been given a gift certificate, and I am relieved we did not have to pay full price for the meal we received. The salad was not very good - lettuce was slightly brown. Ordered the steak medium and it was barely pink. The restaurant was warm - I am guessing to accommodate the clientele (mostly people 65 and over). There were barely any people there on a Wednesday night at 7 - 7:30 pm. Still the waiter was slow and not very attentive. Would not recommend, especially when there are so many other restaurants in Boca that are much better.

We come for the salmon fresca entree, about 500 calories, healthy salmon + veggies. Leaves room for a yummy cocktail like the light, refreshing strawberry fresca.

Would have hands down been 5 stars overall, unforunately there was this horrible odor as soon as you walked in the main door. Luckily as we went to the table, you couldn't smell anymore. Not sure what it was but as we left the smell was at the same place and right by the reception desk. Smelled like a pike burst in the bathroom or a sewage issue but glad it was just in that area. Food was amazing and well prepared. Hats off to the chef and our waiter as service was great.

Our waitress was short on personality. If we needed something it was like we were bothering her. My ravioli was way too salty. At least the people I was with were great!

I ordered a Mediterranean Salad and instead of chickpeas I got mandarin oranges. The chef needs stern talking to. If your going to change the game at least have the sense to describe it on the menu. Overall, it’s hit or miss and I had one to many misses @ $18 a plate.

The food is overpriced and the portions are moderate. Everything is ala carte and the ala carte prices are very high in many cases. Its a very nice looking place. I probably won't be going back.

We sat outside and it was very pleasant. The new house salad was delicious. The spaghetti pomadoro tasted as good as it looked in their email that I had received advertising specials. Rosemary chicken was very good too. Server was attentive and eager to please.

We had been away from BRIO for quite some (1 year) time due to a serious problem we the last time we went. At that time service was terrible, orders came out of the kitchen late and were wrong. We decided to give BRIO another shot and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and so was the service.

To serve a caprese salad with unripened tomatoes tells me that don’t care about their food. The food was mediocre the service tried to make up for it...I won’t be going back.

I ordered a pasta dish in which the pasta was grossly under cooked. I mentioned this to the waiter. He said that he'd tell the manager. When the bill arrived the cost of my dish was removed, but I consumed less than 1/2 of the dish. There was no hassle and everything was handled appropriately and to my approval. The waiter was tipped on the entire cost of the meal before the credit was applied-only fair since it was not his fault.

We dine at Brio regularly and have found the atmosphere consistently pleasant and the service inconsistent. The food is usually decent but sometimes inconsistent. This particular experience afforded us a very sweet but ill-trained server. I personally asked for several items that were not at all unusual requests but had to ask several times to get the items requested. We brought friends who had never been there and they were surprised by the lack of information on the menu. One of them ordered an item that was served very spicy but with no indication of that on the menu. She cannot tolerate super spicy foods and could not eat her meal. My dish was also served very spicy, but I actually prefer my food cooked that way. We'll still be back because the next meal there will probably be terrific.

Not busy for a Wednesday night but you’d think it was based on slow service. Took 15 minutes for anyone to greet us at the table and that was after 6 different people walked by and ignored us. I asked the hostess if we had a server and he said they were trying to find him. He was very nice when he finally arrived but it didn’t get better. Dinner arrived spaced out among the 5 of us, and the salad with grilled chicken had no chicken. The server was MIA and we needed drink refills so I had to find a water pitcher to refill our own drinks. He later apologized by offering a dessert for everyone. However, instead of ordering from the dessert menu, we got a choice of a scoop of sorbet.... who wants sorbet when the menu has cheesecake, chocolate cake, apple crisp, etc.

It was mediocre food at high prices with nonexistent service! Save your money!!

Was there for dinner during the week which was most enjoyable. Less crowded than some nights so could hear and relax. Not rushed. Food was delicious and exactly as ordered. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant.
Overall a fun & enjoyable evening.

Quiet the Monday night we visited. Only negative is that the bread plates pre-set on the table looked dirty, so we had to ask for replacements before we could eat complimentary bread. Otherwise all was good!

We've eaten at another Brio before, but on this day, Mother's Day, it wasn't even good. The food was okay, but we were seated in the bar area where the servers were all hanging out, loudly conversating and watching the game. in addition the guy at the bar was cleaning up, throwing water on the floor about 5 feet away from us. I was embarrassed to tell my wife that this was a reservation.

Food and service definitely sub par maybe due to busy Mother’s Day. Wine and drink was warm when should have been cold, food just thrown on plates, had to ask for everything we needed, crazy loud! Disappointed...may try again since have been pleased in previous visits.
