You cannot go wrong at Café Brio. It's been around for years and the owner makes sure the high quality continues to meet the established standard. A very good dining experience in a nice ambience.

We ended up here on a rainy evening walk from our B&B. It was charming with excellent service. We had a bottle of wine and a cheese & sausage sampler. Perfect place at the perfect time.

They did a very good job on a really busy Saturday night. We had Romaine salad, duck breast and pork belly, and can recommend them all.

I have been coming here for special dinners since they opened - oh like 15 years ago. I am always iffy, as I feel its very pricey for what you get. Recently we went for a family celebration, party of 20 and this was awesome!...More

Visited Cafe Brio recently during our visit with relatives. I particularly appreciated that they offered half orders of pasta which was delicious. Everyone in our party greatly enjoyed the experience. Great food, cocktails and ambiance! Lively without being too loud.

We brought our own wine to Brio, no worries. I had called ahead. I think the corkage fee was $20 but it may have been $15.
