I normally meet my girlfriends for lunch here as it is exactly half way between Coral Springs and Miami. The Shops at Pembroke Gardens are very nice indeed and Brio is one of many nice restaurants in the shopping mall. In the past we have received poor service here but this time, thanks to James H. (excellent waiter) we received the best service we have ever had at this location. They offer Brunch on Sundays which is nice and the lobster bisque is very good. I had the Bruschetta Quattro Sampler Platter appetizer as a main course as it is delicious and I have had it there before. You get 8 hearty bruschetta bites, two each of four different kinds and each one is more delicious than the next. My girlfriend had the chicken and avocado omelette from the Brunch menu with fruit and loved it. The whole experience was affordable and enjoyable, to the point where I wrote to the manager to advise how good James had been. Wish there were more servers like him out there! Walk off your lunch afterwards at a plethora of great shops including Coldwater Creek, Chico's, Sur La Table and Barnes and Noble (while there is still a good book shop to visit - sadly they all seem to be disappearing).
