The Brio restaurant is tucked away off to one side at the Crabtree Mall, and we had never tried it before, but we'd made a purchase at a nearby jewelry store, and needed a speedy lunch. We were seated immediately. The surroundings were sumptuous, rather like an elegant movie set of an Italian villa. Our waiter was very friendly. We ordered the soup and salad--we had lobster bisque and the wedge salad. Traditional bread and a generous portion of butter was brought to our table immediately.Also in the bread basket were interesting thin wedges covered in cheese and spices. It was interesting and different, and we liked them. They made good crackers to go with the soup.
The soup was all right, but the salad was excellent: a large wedge of iceberg lettuce topped with a creamy dressing, chopped tomatoes, bacon bits, and blue cheese. Our waiter was quick to refill our drinks several times (I like lots of water) and all in all, did a great job.
The prices were a little high for pasta dishes, I noticed, but the elegant atmosphere rather made up for it.
I noticed a room at one end of the restaurant that would make a good place to have a party, etc. We will be back!

Located at the Crabtree Mall and convenient to many hotels. The servers were very attentive to our group of 10. Excellent choice of appetizers that are large enough for a meal all by themselves. I had the pasta with lobster and shrimp in lobster sauce. The menu said spicy but they will cater to your taste, spicy, slightly spicy or no spicy. I went for the no spice and was extremely happy with my choice. Large portions so a take home second meal is definitely possible.

We were seated right away and had Excellent service, great new lighter fare menu and reasonable prices. Pesto pasta and Mediterranean shrimp were both great dishes and highly recommended. Save room for small dessert, the chocolate molten cake is rich dark chocolate topped with vanilla ice cream.

Always very good, consistent food. Nice atmosphere and wait staff is extremely fast. Always see Managers pitching in to help if needed. Lunch menus are very reasonably priced. Pepper Bread crisp in bread basket are wonderful. Try the "Shooter" desserts if you want something small.

This gem has a great happy hour menu. Lots of delicious choices at bargain prices. The decor is charming and warm. They have a nice outdoor patio area which is perfect this time of year. I cant wait to return soon. Go check this place out and enjoy.
