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.

Good food, good ambiance, good service. We enjoyed the dinner. The time was late so people were busy closing resulting in us waiting for the check a little longer than we expected.

Showed up on time sat at table 25 minutes no service asked hostess at the counter if anyone was working out table. She asked the waitress working a table near us if she was going to serve us the waitress looks at us and told her no. The nervous hostess had the bartender wait on us who said I’m just the bartender. Out calamari was cold our dinners were cold and my wife’s son got sick after eating the kids meal spaghetti. If they were busy I would under stand but only 3 tables had people and 3 waitresses . The table before us that just got seated was eating dinner before we even ordered . Sad this place isn’t what it use to be .

Slow service despite there being few diners at the time. Wait person struggled to answer simple questions and held glasses by the rims.

Maskless wait staff and kitchen staff. Out of basic menu items and ingredients. Substituted an ingredient in one dish without knowledge or consent.

Unable to complete a gift card transaction. Wanted to comp a $75 tab and toss a $100 gift card.

I'll be honest. Service on Mother's Day was slow. But our waiter gave us a head's up along with an apology and explanation - they were short on staff. We got our drinks quickly and let our waiter know we were in no hurry. We were going to be understanding and patient. We were there to enjoy each other's company. The appetizers came quickly after our waited found time to take our order. The main dishes did take awhile but we made the best of it. All the food ordered was delicious. No complaints there. When the bill arrived we were delighted and surprised to see that our waiter comped our appetizer. "Because you guys were so cool." Restaurants everywhere are having staffing difficulties. Diners can make things worse by complaining and being rude. My advice is to chill. Relax. What's your hurry?

Poor service--couldn't tell if they were unstaffed or if waiter was just not focused. He did comp us 2 desserts, but then didn't follow through timely even after that. Food was just ok--salmon was overcooked and dry.

I had a reservation booked on Open Table for 7:30pm. They gave my high top table to someone else who said they were me. I checked in and they said we already seated you. I said well I just got here and showed them my reservation confirmation. They tried to get the other party to move but were unsuccessful. Then we were sat in the dining room awaiting another table in the bar area. The hostess assured me that we would get the next table that opens up. We ordered drinks in the dining room then waited a little longer. Then a table was opening up so I went back to the host stand and asked if we could sit at the table that opening up. The hostess said yes, and I’ll come get you when it’s ready. Then it happened again, they let another group sit there who didn’t even have a reservation. So in the span of 30 minutes, I lost two tables and never received the drinks that we ordered in the first place. Horrible service overall and extremely poor handling of the situation. I have never walked out of a restaurant before being served food or drinks until last night. I can handle bad service, but last night was complete unacceptable.
