We had an unfortunate evening at Brio. I've been to Brio at Tyson's and loved it but this was awful all around. We sat outside and the waitstaff all but ignored us. It took forever to get water and then to order. When the salads arrived, one had no dressing but I couldn't find the waiter so I just ate... More

We had a birthday party at their private room. We've chosen the buffet option and everything was good, the room, the service, the food. Actually, the food was excellent but the service was a little slow. We weren't in a rush so it wasn't an issue.

Brio is a welcome newcomer to the Rockville area. The food is excellent, with some unusual dishes as well as some traditional favorites with a Tuscan flair. I had the veal marsala and it was one of the best versions of this dish that I've ever had. The sauce was rich while still allowing the individual ingredients to shine through.... More

This chain restaurant is not for me. The crabcakes were awful. The Brio in Houston has closed down and I can understand why after eating here. The restaurant was almost empty and yet we had to wait for a table almost ten minutes. Server was very nice and helpful but could do nothing to improve the food.

I made the mistake of going to Brio on St Patricks Day. The bar area was 1/3 full at best. Three of us sat in the bar area on a sofa. Fifteen minutes after sitting down, our drinks came. I was brought the wrong draught beer. There was one beer brand on the happy hour menu. It was 5:45pm on... More

We went to Brio before a concert at Strathmore. We were seated quickly, the waiter was helpful and nice. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. The deserts were great! We were out the door in plenty of time to see the concert. I recommend Brio and will return.

I ate here with a group of nine. The server was knowledgeable and attentive. We had a fixed price lunch menu. All three choices were well-prepared and tasty. They tossed in free coffee, tea and sodas. A good choice among restaurants in the area.

Love Brio, I have never be disappointed with the quality of food I order, whether is pizza, pasta, fish or meat I have always enjoy it. They have a good variety of wines, my husband and I usually star at the bar or by the fire place, the bartenders are usually very friendly and give us a wine taste on... More

I waited so long for this place to open and got disappointed with their bla pasta. To be honest the only thing I liked was the garlic bread that is actually complementary. The decor is nice if you are into that.

Having frequented Brio in their Tyson's Corner Virginia location, when they opened a place close by my neighborhood I had to try it. Oh my, it is beautifully decorated, large, but not too and it has a staff of good waiters and cooks. The food is fabulous and the service fantastic. We returned two more times and each was as...
