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 love the food but there were some miscues. Our waiter was hesitant to give his name because he was "afraid we would yell it." (Joe) Great way to start a dining experience.
Had the shrimp and lobster fettuccine. (Too salty). Adding salt to boiling water i understand, this was too much.
Once we paid the bill the waiter (Joe) never returned to check on water or more coffee for our table.

I was very disappointed with the services. I waited 30 minutes to received my first drink. It took almost one hour for us to receive our food. When we received the food it was cold. I will not recommend this location to anyone .

Enjoy the restaurant but the acoustics are terrible! They need to install partial glass walls to cut down on the noise level. I don't like conversations where you need to keep repeating yourself but you can hear a conversation two tables away.

I know this is a chain restaurant, but honestly I had one of the very best dishes I’ve ever had! It was the salmon. Fresca, and it was WONDERFUL! Also, I was dining with a friend that had just lost her husband and the waiter never rushed us and gave us space and time, and he was wonderful as well!

I was seated before my friend arrived. Unfortunately when she arrived the person at the hostess stand told my friend that there was no reservation in that name (my name, and yes there a reservation because the other hostess saw it and seated me). Luckily I was watching for my friend and saw that she went outside to sit and wait (in 88 degree weather). I quickly found my friend and brought her to my table. This was unfortunate and I understand that things happen. We were comped a cheesecake dessert and given hearty apologies.

I thought Brio was supposed to be a nice restaurant for dinner. For a moment I thought I was in a truck stop when I saw a guy just wearing a tank-top undershirt at the table nearby. Not very classy for a Saturday night! On the way out I asked at the host stand and was told that they do not have a dress code. So I guess anything goes!

Yesterday us the Anderson family, table for 7 had a blast for Father's day dining! Overall everything went extremely wonderful for us all. Ambience, noise level, food, our server "Marcus" from the Spice Island - Grenada was absolutely terrific. He had us cracking up, while he kept it all professional and classy. The dads in our midst along with the rest of us we were so blessed by this our experience.

I would and will recommend this institution/restaurant to many others. We'll also re-visit. Ask for Marcus as your server when you call to make your reservation, or online/Open Table!!

Our reservation was scheduled for 6:30pm , we’re a “large” party apparently. Upon checking in on time, we were not given an estimate on how long it would be. I asked again 20 minutes later. No one gave me a time again. A hostess comes by about 10 minutes later and says “I don’t really know how long it’s going to be”. You’re a hostess and you can’t accommodate your reservation that was on time? I don’t know if it’s the lack of training or lack of caring but I was a hostess for 6 years. I knew a rough estimate on how long a table would be ready. I saw parties of 4/5 walk in and get sat immediately. Why didn’t you save that table for us and put two tables together? On top of that the bartender had a terrible attitude. She would not make eye contact with us and didn’t greet us. She went to other patrons already sitting at the bar and spoke with them. We flagged her down and got a feisty response Hi?! Can I help you? As a matter of fact you can serve us the drinks we want, since you and your partner don’t want to engage in conversation with each and see if we’ve been taken care of. The bartender said her partner was not helping her and she was doing all the work. Well it seemed like you ignored us to see if your partner would acknowledge us because you walked by us about 4 times and said nothing. We were finally sat at 7:40. One hour and ten minutes past our reservation!! I’ve been coming here for a while and never have I ever had to wait that long for a reservation. To end on a good note: The manager did give us free appetizers but that doesn’t fix the wait and the attitude we received. Maybe have your hostesses walk up and down the restaurant and see if someone is having dessert or finishing their entree. At least they can say someone is almost done.

Great food, great service once we were sat. We had a 6 pm reservation. We got there at 6:01 pm and despite many open tables we were not sat till 6:22 pm. Wasn’t sure why but other than that everything was really wonderful!

I love the ambience at BRIO. The waiter was extremely helpful and attentive. I asked for my chicken marsala to not be dry and it was perfect. However my friend ordered you a regular salad end it seemed to come with shredded carrots and hardly any lettuce. When she requested more, it was given. Their menu is a little limited and needs more choices.

Have dined here a few times & lately food is becoming very average in flavor. Way too many pasta dishes on menu. Need to include other types of entrees. Service was absolutely non existent except for taking our orders. Never asked how our dinner was or if wanted another drink. Finally saw him again when he brought the check
Not going back anytime soon

The food was good and the service was just okay. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. It seemed like she was covering the entire patio and some inside tables. It took quite a while to get our drinks from the bar or even water for the table. Overall, the experience was good and I would dine at BRIO again.

Avoid the calamari at all cost. Instead of rings and tentacles you get what looks like French fries... Best way to describe it's it feels like processed chicken nuggets. Never seen anything like it, and tasted like crap. Since Brio sold last August menu and food have gone downhill

Dinner started out great. Salads and bread were great. The dinners were terrible. 2 people had chicken Marsala which was absolutely tasteless- no taste of Marsala wine and each plat had one littl slice of mushroom. Salmon was also tasteless.

I have been to a couple of Brio Tuscan Grills and have been very happy with all of them. This was my first visit to this one in Plantation. Very easy to find. Our waitress was amazing. She was so professional yet friendly and efficient. I was there with two friends and we were all so pleased with our food.

I will be back for sure.
