Dining here was not our original first option--we intended to dine a block away, at the top-of-the-charts Fishhook. But the line outside that restaurant to get into the line inside it was too daunting, so we went up the block to Brio. There the maitre'd was reluctant to give us a table, because he was waiting for the 8 pm... More

My boyfriend and I ate at Cafe Brio for his birthday. The experience from start to finish was amazing. Service was superb, food tasted amazing, and atmosphere was nice. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a nice night out with great service.

This casual charming place has a wonderful farm to table menu. The heirloom tomato salad and halibut with lemon risotto were both outstanding. Panna cotta with fresh strawberries was a perfect ending. The wine list has good reasonable choices.

Monday night word of mouth recommendation that was excellent. Place packed so reservations necessary. Portion sizes for 1/2 serving were just right. Staff attentive, timely and not pushy. Menu selections not overwhelming. Flavours fantastic for every dish. Will go again....thanks to BETH and her fellow staff for delivering good value for dinner.

Comfortable casual setting. Excellent 1/2 portion Spaghettini for appetizer and average/good Rockfish entree. Restaurant was full on a Monday night. Reservation recommended.

Went out to celebrate a birthday on a Wednesday evening without making a reservation. The place was packed but the staff managed to find us a table with the proviso that we were finished in 75 minutes as the table had been reserved. The meal was delicious and the service exceptional. My only complaint is the lack of meat choice... More

Our B & B hosts in Metchosin, gave us a recommendation that we go here for dinner. We did not make reservations, but our host told us the we could have a drink at the bar and they would seat us, as soon as a table was available. It took about 15 minutes and we were looking at our menus.... More

The food was excellent and we appreciated the 1/2 size options on the meal sizes. Excellent ambiance and service to boot made this a great choice.

Gregg and Sylvia are a great team as they each have "their" own responsibilities. She serves the meals and he ensures your table is ready. Our table was on their patio and Heidi made sure we got what we needed. Starting with our drinks...my best friend had a local vodka with Cointreau, a splash of OJ and soda water. I... More
