I'll start out with friendly service (though not great by any means) and an ok bruschetta appetizer. It's a shame because Brio is gorgeous inside. In that area there's a bunch of other chain restaurants. The husband and I were tired of Cheesecake Factory, Havana Central and decided to try something different so we wouldn't run Yard House into the ground, enter Brio, which was empty but still had a wait.
We sat down and the menu looked promising and pricey. I was starving so I ordered the bruschetta of the day which was something with spinach and chicken. We were off to a good start although the chicken was unnecessary and made it an open faced sandwich not a little bite. The husband ordered some seafood pasta which was a pretty hefty price and I decided to get the risotto with sweet potato and chicken. I figured even if the rice was messed up (it wasn't gonna be perfect risotto it's a chain) it would still be ok flavors. Nope. The flavors never meshed. And the chicken tasted off and made me pretty nice and sick the next day. The husband looked punished eating his meal and finally just gave up saying he didn't like it. We decided maybe dessert could salvage it and had the chocolate bread pudding. It was weird, that's honestly all I can manage to say.
Maybe I'll wait and give Brio another try, it usually takes someone else saying they want to go for me to try it again. But one visit alone left a pretty lasting impression. Try harder Brio, I want to like you.
