“Lovely to sit outside at Brio!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Turns out you can usually (but not always) get a seat at the tall outside tables at Brio Tuscan Grill, and thereby avoid the usual 1/2 hour wait to get in to this most popular restaurant. My favorite hor d'oeurvres is Beef Carpaccio, with capers, and a mustard sauce which is also served at their first, flag-ship restaurant - Lindey's in Columbus, OH, [which remains my favorite restaurant]. I also had the special of the day - a sea bass that was unbelievably fresh served with a wonderful sauce. The remainder of this hearty serving was still very tasty for my lunch a day later! I marvel at how this restaurateur family really know how to create chic settings and consistently delicious food.

“Good italian food, nice patio, good selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

By coincidence we "landed" at this restaurant. However, we have been very positively surprised. As they seat a large number of guests, we had no wait and the waiter was quick, efficient and polite. The menu is typically italien and even if the pizza oven is a "fake wood", the food is well prepared and delicious. Brio also has special menues for low-calories as well as gluten-free - avantgarde indeed.
Would go again

“Great focus on customer service and experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We visited Brio 3 times during our xmas trip 2013 and each experience there is consistently good. Great friendly staff who go out of their way to ensure all patrons are happy. The food quality is excellent and we do keep coming back for the gorgonzola crusted lamb chops, which aren't even on the menu! Great for family and big parties. Reservation system is good too even at their busiest. Waterside shops location ensures plenty to look at before and after. Looking forward to next year.

“Good for groups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Pretty much always delivers consistent, solid service and food, although there is too much effort in pushing specials and wines.

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Had lunch with Jason as our server, very nice, polite and very attentive, was great to have lunch outside on our short schedule, he got us in and out. Loved the calamari, definte must try! Had a chicken pannini, just perfect!
Went back a few days later for dinner, had Ashley as our server, she was fun, quick and witty!
Enjoyed my Mahi Mahi and side of spaghetti very much, everything done perfectly and enjoyed it immensely.
Will be back for sure!
